I would welcome assigned seating. I have never and expect I never will fly SWA without assigned seating. I hate lines and have a medical problem that makes it difficult for me to stand for long times. What is better than sitting in the airline restaurant, lounge. or just a chair in the terminal... knowing a seat awaits you when you get on the plane. When I walk by SWA gates I am reminded of the unemployment line I once stood in years ago. Yuk. With computer check in and the need to get to the airport so early for security, how can SWA not get into the present.
A suggestion. Why not board airplanes back to front with window seats first, center and then aisle. I see a lot of the delay in crowded aisles while people have to get out of seats to let people in. Also, how about those folks who stand in the aisles blocking boarding be given a shout from the flight attendats. Do we have to continue to tolerate rudeness with silence.
