I am a frequent business traveler and can not say enough good things about Southwest. I will always choose you over the competition. I have no problems with open seating. My concern with assigned seats is that it will raise rates and take away the other best parts of Southwest - namely your frequent flier program. I appreciate all my intra-Florida flying counting just as much as long distance segments, the speed in which I can get free flights, the ability to book a free seat if it is available, and no change fees. Those are the reasons I am such a loyal customer. You are, by far, the most consistently on time airline I deal with, but that would become less important if you changed any of the benefits I mentioned. If those disappear, I may as well fly on airlines that can upgrade me to first class for being a semi-frequent passenger. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
