To comment on John Parkin's experience concerning the gate search-My husband and I were in the same situation this past Monday evening at PBI. He was pulled out of line for the search but I was able to continue on and we ended up with the exit row seats. A woman farther down the line who was traveling alone was also stopped at the gate for a random search and was very upset because she had waited on line almost as long as us and then ended up boarding with the end of the B group. On any other airline this wouldn't be a problem because of assigned seats but as regular WN flyers know that A boarding pass is most important. Is there any thing that can be done to help in this situation?
