I have always flown Southwest for my business travels, and appreciated the 24 hour check in policy. However, the A-List policy is something that I do not think was a step in the right direction. This policy is a slap in the face of the couple or family that wanted to travel Southwest for a long weekend or vacation get away. One member may be an A-lister, but the rest of the family or travel companions are stuck boarding much later. I tried to think of a way to make the A list work, restricting it to the popular business travel days and travel times, and leaving Friday Saturday and Sunday free for the family passengers - but after much thinking it believe you should scrap the A-List all together and let each passenger check in as close to 24 hours prior as possible to get the best possible spot in line. I like some of the new enhancements, but the A - list gets a BIG FAT F in my book. Cut it now!!!
