I hope you will go back to allowing families to pre-board. Then those of us that look forward to a quiet flight can clearly see where the children are sitting and choose a seat away from them. I check in early to get an "A" boarding pass so I can get an aisle seat near the front of the plane. The last thing I would want is a child or parent holding a child sitting next to me on a long flight. With this new policy, taking an aisle seat in front of the plane just increases the risk that a parent and one or two children will take the window and aisle seat. I flySouthwest frequently and find the families take up little space. I don't see that the new policy will help the "B" and "C" boarders either.
