P.S for the above blog...With all of the excitement about these new procedures, have you forgotten those of us waiting to book our trips past March 7????? On 8/29/07 you announced that today 11/8/07, you would open up the schedule for travel through May 9, 07. We are now 8 hrs. into 11/8 and still nothing. Is this new system taking precedence over those of us who faithfully follow SWA scheds. and plan our trips accordingly? I may not be an A-Lister, but I am a devoted leisure travel customer.

PLEASE...let the families have priority boarding!!!! I agree with the previous bloggers. The advantage of boarding after the families is obvious and beneficial for the families as well as the travelers w/o children. PLEASE...keep the new part of the boarding process A 1-5, A 5-6, etc.it is a great improvement, but for heavens sake the pay more and get ahead of everyone else who sat at their computer waiting for that 24 hr. mark to check in is baloney. Those A List Execs. have staff and travel agencies check in for them so it is NOT an incovenience for them anyway. NOTE: since the A Listers will pay more or actually their employers will pay more, does that mean that the A-List fares will end up costing everyone more for whatever product they sell?? I guess that's the trickle down effect. Pleae re-think the family boarding process and us lowly leisure travelers working hard to get an A Boarding pass.
