I had the PLEASURE of experiencing the experimental boarding procedure today as I flew out of San Antonio. My husband and I have flown over 90 flights in the past 12 months and this definitely was a stress free experience. We went online as usual 24 hours before our flight, retrieved our boarding pass, arrived at our gate and had a leisurely (meaning we didn't have to swarm to the "line" to save our spot and then either sit on the ground or stand for almost an hour) wait for our flight back home (to Las Vegas). When the attendant announced the plane had arrived there wasn't the mad chaos at the line but an orderly walk to our spot (we had #A1 and #A2). Thank you to Southwest for an enjoyable boarding experience - keep up the good work. By the way, we have always enjoyed our flying experiences with Southwest - especially the "on time" consistency.
