Well, I've already posted above my objection to the new fare structure. Since then, I've flown 2 rt's SNA-PHX (booked and paid for prior to the failed changes) and for both flights, boarding numbers were not enforced. It seemed that the very front of the A line was filled with squatters who saw the gap and took it. On another note, I think that I MAY like the new Business Select class. Silly to offer a drink to someone who may well be headed toward a meeting. But it can be rewarding to sit next to one of them and be offered their drink coupon since they won't be drinking anyway. Now if I can just learn how to spot them! Well, no worries....I won't be flying SWA after my current itineraries are complete...I don't like the feeling of standing in line after recess to get back into the classroom......

Southwest just lost my business. I fly SNAPHX twice a month and have always flown SWA. But their new fares are ridiculous. Booking this trip for late Jan 2008, SWA wants over $200!! USAir comes in at $118. Bye bye, SWA. I also checked the same trip for late Feb. Same ridiculously high fare. Ta-ta, SWA.
And forget about wooing business customers. No in-seat power, no entertainment, no assigned seating.
The glory days are over for SWA. I'm sorry to see that happen, but economics are economics.
