Please dont go to assigned seating. I love the current system. By and large, I can get an aisle or window seat by checking in early and dont have to buy expensive seats to do so like other airlines. Even if I am unlucky and have a C, I can choose my elbow mates if i show up early while on other airlines I could be stuck between two sweaty obese men while plenty of other middle seats are empty. I feel sure that there are many many more of your loyal customers who feel this way and the whiners who think about you as just another airline should probably fly another airline anyway.
