No To Assigned Seating! As a business traveler I fly Southwest often especially because of the open seating. I enjoy open seating because I can choose not to sit by a customer of size or toddlers if I desire. There are many perks about other airlines (like Jet Blue's TV's) but I choose Southwest because of the policy in place. It fits my needs. Please keep open seating! Talk to the customers that use and choose Southwest often...not the one flight buyer who comes and goes every 3-4 years or so. We are your bread and butter... We feel a part of Southwest as customers. Please keep open seating...otherwise you just become another airline. People choose Southwest because of low fares, easy boarding, etc... NOT because of reserved seats. You've taken away the freedom of the Rapid Rewards availability (limited now), you've taken away double points through SWABIZ, and now you keep taking more and more until customers (like me) will choose another carrier because there is nothing left that makes Southwest unique. KEEP OPEN SEATING!
