I am a long time flier from St Louis - my credentials include several 'Companion Passes' so I've flown a good deal on SWA. I own my business and could not function with SWA!
I LOVE OPEN SEATING. I know how to check in online to obtain an A boarding card - and I feel this is my advantage as a frequent passenger that knows the system. In effect, I am the beneficiary of what amounts to elite status on the other airlines.
I also like the fact anyone can do this - not just an elite group from a major company who negotiates a sweetheart deal with the airline (those of you from St Louis will remember how TWA sold these perks to a few large companies and everyone but those priviledged few were shut out - maybe that's why TWA is history)
I appreciate the airline constantly reviewing its policies - its an indication that they will remain strong - but I hope Open Seating stays!
