I like your comments and agree. I do not save seats for co-workers, but I will save a seat for my husband, and we always take one middle. He has Companion Pass. I recently tried to pay the additional for him to board sooner, but it would not allow this option. It doesn't bother me when someone saves a seat or even two; what seems truly unfair is when someone saves a block of seats, such as every exit seat for their friends traveling to Cancun (this was last month). Since my husband is considered disabled, we could readily pre-board. I see so many who appear to take advantage of this, but I don't know their story and try my best to give the benefit of the doubt. My husband is also mobile, so we don't take advantage; it doesn't feel right. I just save a non-choice seat. I am surprised at how many get so angry over a person wanting to sit next to their spouse when clearly the next row is fully open. Are they trying to prove a point? I find it much more aggravating when people talk exceptionally loud, do nothing to stop their fighting children, have a bad cough and don't cover their mouth, put their seat back only to lean forward for most of the trip, or spill over into my seat.

I agree with the request to allow the purchasor to make this decision. In my experience, it is usually the purchasor who handles the cancellation. As purchasor, I would like the ability to choose who to apply the credit to, whether it be myself, the passenger I paid for, or another. I would be truly happy with the opportunity to either credit the original passenger, as is done now, or convert to points for A-Listers. This would be another benefit of being an A-List member. Just an idea.
