Southwest Airlines - Seating Policies
LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK -- The few times I have flown Southwest Airlines were frustrating and annoying and far more expensive than other carriers at least from my location. I still do not understand what benefit their seating policy offers to anyone. I can't understand the logic when you have to be stressed out to get a decent seat. Especially on vacation...I really don't want to be pressured into getting on line to get an "A" or even "B" cattle call for seats. Why not just let people choose a seat like other airlines?
Someone please explain the benefit of this frustrating seating system where rude passengers cut ahead of you, get confrontational, come up with fake injuries to board early, and any number of other stressful issues that arrive when trying to get a decent seat. It seems like Southwest goes out of their way to bring out the worst in people. Why would anyone want to fly this airline? They add stress and hassle to the already lousy ordeal that is flying.
I have not flown Soutwest in quite a few years and don't intend to ever again.
