I don't like this idea either. For the most part, everyone else has expressed my thoughts about this new fee. I will still fly SouthWest, BUT I'm not happy with the extra fee that I will have to pay if I want to have a choice in seating. I recently travelled for business and was not allowed to pick my airline. I was booked with AirTran and was so disappointed with the service and the limited space in the plane. I'm only 5' tall and felt very confined. Seats were assigned, space was limited, and I could barely fit my small carry-on bag under the seat. I paid $40 to check in two bags. Can't say I like the NEW format of the Southwest web page either. All that "white" space makes me dizzy! I'm FRUSTRATED looking at the page. The format is not user friendly and the options have changed. What's going on Southwest?
