Wed Sept 12th I flew from Las Vegas to Omaha on the 1 something flkight. As usual there was a huge pre-boarding group 75% of whom were very overwight elderly women in wheelchairs 6 or 7 total plus their extended families. No children ALL grownups each of whom took two spaces not one. The irksome thing is that the big fat women were given preferential treatment becasue of their weight and age I guess. Wheelchairs were provided for them upon arrival and were wheeled to the escalaor where they got off rode down and WALKED to the pick up their luggage. I am stunned you have eliminated pre boarding for children. I am a Grandmother and a loyal SW flier for many many years. I have never preboarded but I know how necessry it is through observation and from my childrens shared experience with travel on SW. It makes me not like Southwest . I never thought I would say that. You are making a mistake.
