I recently flew on an oh-so-proper airline that is new/again out of Love Field and starts with an "A". (I know, I know, shame on me -- but I fly long distance out of Dallas, and sometimes I need them, and I'm about to take the Bride to Europe on a reward trip....)
At 30 minutes before the flight, they began their assigned seating process. After a few minutes, they were on the airplane's speakers, pleading and bleating with the customers to "step out of the aisle, let others by, blah blah baa baa baa." It got to be practically militant! After a few more minutes of these impassioned announcements, the customers all found a way to store their stuff and sat in their seats. Time yet to wait for pushback? Fifteen more minutes!!
They barked at their clients for 10 minutes to hurry, and then we all sat there fifteen more minutes before starting our journey.
Please do not copy the other airlines and their assigned seating practice. I much prefer the service, respect, and process of SWA! You could say I LUV it.
