I am a frequent traveler on Southwest, and over the past few years have noticed a growing problem with people saving seats. I pay extra for ealry check-in to ensure a greater choice of seats, as do others. However, many early-boarders have taken to saving seats for their companions, who have not payed for early boarding, which limits my choices. Simply put, this is not fair. I believe SW needs to assert a policy against seat-saving, in fairness to those of us that have paid extra and are being blocked from sitting where we choose to sit. If I am forced to upgrade to business, to deal with the problem, then the price point of the flight begins to defeat the purpose of flying Southwest. I may as well take my business to a different airline, which I don't want to do, as SW provides affordable and convenient travel. Looking forwrad to this matter being resolved.
