In referance to the 2 people who commented about larger passengers, I agree with the policy. I am 5'10" and 350, so I am not a stick either. I have walked in the plane... and got off the plane when there were only middle seats left. If the plane was full and I had someone squished between me and someone else or the wall... I got off.
Did it inconvience me.... a little. But I respect other peoples space... and unless I have to be somewhere... i.e. meeting, family emergency... I will take the next one.
I try to leave a day early anyway for my business trips, so I am not rushed. Most of the time the agents appreciate it and will "take care of me" on the next flight.
Its your choice, fly who you want, when you want... no one is forcing you to fly on Southwest. I avoid another Dallas based carrier like the plague, for a couple reasons, thats my choice.
Have a great day, and everyone be safe.
