Well, A month's worth of comments, I cannot possibly read them all, but ALL of the ones I read were for open seating and against assigned seating. I would guess that these are your base, Southwest, these are the folks who know to come on here and make their wishes known, these are the folks who fly SW and prefer to fly SW. And I'm one of those, too. Let's keep open seating and find some other way to board faster. I can tell you this, I have flown overseas quite a bit, on regional airlines similar to SW, and they board much faster than SW, and that's because they don't allow those huge roller bags. Carry on is truly carry on. How many times have I stood at the font of the SW plane waiting patiently while those in front of me wrestle with their luggage. That's what's taking the time. Let's all get together and show SW what we can do to board faster, by checking those big bags! If we want to keep SW the way it is now, we have to help out!!
