I have enjoyed flying on Southwest for years because of their convienent n/s service from Islip to Florida, Chicago and Vegas, and their low fares. Open seating is nice because I know who I'm sitting near before sitting down. If there is a whining 3 year old behind me, I will know that I don't have to sit near he or she... I am happy with the current ABC no number policy because I can almost guarentee a good window seat with card A at home the day before without the stress of leaving extra early. The new process will create a bigger cattle run at the computer. Fast reflexes has nothing to do with being a loyal passenger, and is not worth it! Me and many other Long Islanders don't not want to go to JFK or La Guardia and get stuck in traffic on the LIE to get the same n/s service on another airline!
