A couple weeks ago I was shocked to get a C pass 20 hours before departure. I ended up between a very elderly lady who crapped her diaper (after waiting until cruising flight level) then pretended to be asleep while spreading out into my center seat and nearly cracking my ribs. At landing it turned out her HUSBAND was in the aisle seat. He was unashamed of making me sit between him and his incontinent wife for 2 hours. Full flight. The stewardess couldn't do a thing but avoid my row like we were all lepers.
Coming back - same thing. C pass and inbetween two people who knew each other and talked across me the entire flight.
My next SW flight will be when they have advance seat assignments. My company pays for my tickets so I am
not price sensitive -I'll spend my connection time in Dallas or Houston in the President's or Admiral's lounge and sit in a rear window seat. Aggressive unplesant passengers never sit aft - they want to get off first and stand around waiting for their baggage.
