First you fix it so that we might not be able to avoid sitting near children
Then you fix it so there are so many favored classes of passengers that there is nothing left for your plain old regulars who have enjoyed Southwest for many years.
As far as the families boarding----there is one right way to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!
They board first and go all the way to the back of the plane.
That gives them plenty of time to get situated and meanwhile everyone else can get on without stumbling over car seats and such.
So they are favored by having extra time (which they really need) and are able to sit together, but not DOUBLY favored by getting on first and also getting the best seats. One favor for families is enough.
The first time I put effort into getting an A boarding pass and then I am surrounded by families, or asked to move my seat to accomodate them, that is the day I stop flying Southwest. I can have that experience on any other airline!!
I have been a big Southwest fan for many and I am a little disappointed--too many changes at once!!
