Apr 22nd 2010 3:22PM Ed, what I said was, or meant to say was that at the time you book your flight you are still only choosing your seat our of that is left at that time. If you were the first to book your flight you might have chosen another seat because more seats were available at the time.
They same is true for Southwest. You choose your seat by what is left....only you are doing it once you board the plane. I have flown Southwest hundreds of times and can count on one hand the number of times I was dissapointed with my seat. The other problem I see with airlines that allow you to book your seat online is that people show up at the last possible moment for the flight because they have their seat assigned. Then we are left with a ton of people boarding the flight close to the departure time and can cause delays.
Bottom line is, there are pros and cons to both types of seating systems. But people who think Spirit is making these changes for the passengers own good are fooling themselves. There are many many more charges coming from this airline. This is going to snowvball.
Apr 22nd 2010 3:15PM I have news for you people....if they get rid of the reclining seats, its to add more rows of seats so they can make more money. What do you think that is going to do to your legroom? The seat in front of you will still be in your lap. Only now there is no escaping it because you cannot recline your seat back to make more room.
And do you really think they are doing this for YOUR comfort? Hell no! It's for the almighty dollar. This is just the start of what this airline is going to charge for. I predict in a future you will only have use of your oxygen mask and floating seat cushion if you PRE-PAID for this service.
This airline is appalling. They don't give a crap about their passengers. They are just spinning it to make it look that way.
I will see you all on Southwest in a few months.
Apr 22nd 2010 3:00PM What? It is not lower ticket costs if they then turn around and charge for your bags. Who the hell flies without bags? Especially carry-ons? I love Southwest Airlines. Their so called "cattle call" boarding makes people show up ON TIME for their flights. All airlines board the plane by row numbers. All you have to do with Southwest is print your boarding pass online and show up for your damn flight on time if you want to get your choice of seat.
Southwest cares about their passengers. They treat their passengers like values customers, not like dollar signs. With the airlines where you can choose your seat online, who the hell says you are gonna get the seat you want anyway. You are left to choose from what is left at that time. With Southwest you are just doing that on the plane instead of on the computer.
Apr 22nd 2010 2:54PM Anyone who flies this airline is an idiot. I would rather pay double the price for a ticket than to put up with this airline's complete disregard for passenger comfort. They say this will lower prices because they can add more seats. What about the charge per bag in the over head bins? They are nickle and diming people to death. What's next, charging for the space your feet use on the floor? Charging to use the bathroom? Charging per flush? They are probable going to charge if you need help from the flight attendant too. Are they also skimping on safety?
I wouldn't trust this airline to fly a group of chickens to KFC.
People need to send this airline a message by NOT USING THEM at all. I mean really people.
Jun 17th 2009 11:24AM This is STUPID. This is NOT discrimination case. People in wheelchairs and scooters are the same as PEDESTRIANS, and they should be treated the same way. At that late hour, people on foot can't access that place for food either. Why should people in wheelchairs be able too. The drive-thru is for vehicles ONLY.
Feb 24th 2009 12:51PM All this lawsuit is going to do is make FA's think twice before acting on something that is important for fear of being sued. FA's are not just waiters and waitresses. They are trained professionals and deserve to be heard. I think the FA's had the right to question the pilot when they saw frost on the wings. What if the pilot didn't notice and the plane crashed? Everone would be up in arms that nothing was done. Pilots are well trained but they are human. There should be checks and balances withing any organization without fear of being sued. It's not like the FA's went to the media. They went to the FAA. I think the FA's were within their right to question the decisions.
