After reading this blog, as parents of 2 young children, my husband and I have no interest in flying Southwest. It does seem as if that is your goal. So, you suceeded. Thankfully a friend warned me about your boarding policy before we booked our trip, which prompted to me to find this blog.
I should note that I could care less about boarding first. I would rather be on a plane with a toddler for as little time as possible. I thought pre-boarding was for customers who took longer to get on the plane so that the other passengers wouldn't have to stand behind them as they put their wheelchairs and car seats in? Really, what other purpose is there for pre-boarding. Oh, I see, your self-centered passengers see it as a privilege.
Hope those passengers who have such an intolerance for young children will never have to travel with one. Because I'll bet they won't be customers any more either. The types of passengers that you seem interested in making happy are definitely not ones that I'd want to sit next to. With children or not. I guess there is a market for miserable, "the world is in my way" travelers, and you decided to tap into that.
This seems like a defiant airlines with a bad attitude. No thank you. Great business strategy! I'll be sure to let my friends, and co-workers know.
