Open Seating works. Please don't get rid of it! I have come to appreciate it for the more efficient boarding times and good record of ontime arrival compared to other airlines. It's much less stressful to be sitting farther back in the (Southwest) plane with another connection to catch after deplaning. Also with open seating I might have a chance of getting a seat up front if I want one vs. not Ever being able to snag one in assigned seating the past few years! I like the equality of passengers. I also appreciate the friendly service of Southwest flight attendants - much nicer than other airlines'!
