I heard the announcement concerning the new seating arrangements on Southwest Airlines.
I don't fly Southwest because you waste my time. Downtown Dallas rather than DFW is not convenient unless you work downtown. The traffic to get to Love field is not worth the wait. Next the cattle car boarding wastes time because you have to get there super early to get a good seat that I could have gotten without the wait if the seating was assigned.
Travel is bad enough these days because of the new homeland security measures put in place due to 9/11. Although the security rules are necessary it adds time to travel. I don't want to add more, my time is worth something to me.
I flew Southwest airlines once, never again. I wouldn't fly Southwest even if it was free, it just isn't worth all the time wasted. I guess at age 57 I'm not one of the new generation travelers you want to attract. I've only traveled about a dozen times this year anyway, and two of those trips were out of the country. Since you don't fly to Europe there is another reason to continue with another airline.
I wish you luck, I know there are those who will fly with no one else.
