[QUOTE=DisneyTeacher;1027185]SW doesn’t assign seats, you just board the plane and pick any open seat. I love the way SWA does things but I understand not everyone does.[/QUOTE]
OK thanks, it must have been Virgin Atlantic. I think non seat assignment works too, we have a company called Easy jet who also work this way and I could not imagine how this would work when we recently flew to Barcelona. However, overall we felt it was much better, no people searching for their allocated seats and fighting over the overhead bins, people just seemed to sit in order of their position in the boarding line it seemed far quicker and more efficient to me.
I appreciate though we have only done this type of seating twice (round trip) and it may not always be as smooth as we found on that particular trip.
