I also want to add that i hope these new procedures do not affect preboarders of little kids and families and most importantly those who need time and assistance. Would like to see more seats available for preboarders often see people with canes and the like trying to stand in the preboard area no where to sit.

I personally think the new boarding procedure might work, but there will be definate kinks. I fly every two weeks back and forth and frequently see late arrivers with A boarding passes . I am one who gets online at 2 minutes prior to the 24 hours to get my A pass but that is good for me. I do not jump up when the first person is in line. I do think however having a gate agent at every gate not every two or three would help and asking the passengers to wait till A's then B's announced would be good too As long as southwest continues the non assigned seats i am one happy camper. No offense parents but i always let the little ones go on first and if there is a sneezing coughing passenger thatt is not where i am sitting..I also appreciate the ease and non charge of fees to change a flight even at the last possible minute . I often have to do this and very frequently have several credits in my account but this works well for me. I love southwest please don't change too much.
