Southwest Airlines Says No to Assigned Seating

By September 24, 2007


After testing the idea of assigned seating for the past while, Southwest Airlines has decided to fully embrace the open seating concept that they have been known for - with a twist. In fact, in the past week Southwest declared on their website, "You Spoke and We Listened - Southwest Airlines Says Open Seating is Here to Stay!"

Southwest Airlines plans to enact a new system for open seating in November with A, B and C groups but with added numbers for positioning purposes. So if you have A 13 you will board after a passenger holding an A 5 boarding pass. Southwest Airlines details the new take on their open seating commitment.
