Congratulate me! I just checked in for my very last SWA flight ever! I work for a company that will not pay an additional fee just so that I get a free drink and an "A" checkin. I used to book this all the time as I was ensured of getting an "A" checkin, as long as I checked in early... Bit not now! You actually have to pay for it (so much for being "classless") As a result, I'll actually be spending MORE money in order to get a preferred seat on USAIRWAYS ! Isn't that silly of SWA to do? Nice job and C-YA! I'll be going with one of the dozens of other airlines that doesn't charge extra for seat assignements!
Funny, I just spoke to a friend of mine that traditionally fly's SWA for Leisure travel all the time but she told me that since she's no longer able to get an "A" (again, that's if you don't pay more), thus get a full row for her whole family, that she'll be changing airlines also! I've recommended all but two airlines that don't charge more for seat assignments (United and now SWA!)
I bet that SWA never even posts this, nor responds to it... I cannot wait to see if that's true! If it is true that they don't post it, it's in violation of BlogWorld Standards (check it out) so I'll notify them if indeed this isn't posted. Wonder if I'm telling the truth? Checkout IBNA.com, townhall.com, iblogbusiness.com or bloggerandpodcaster.com requirements! They all clearlyy state that bloggers cannot be censored if they are on topic! What is more on topic but SWA's new policies!?!?!?!
I wonder if, as they were counting the $$ they'd get in new bookings that they considered that they may actually lose customers (like me that have spent $16K in the past 2 years at SWA)! I bet not...
