Seat 2C A Positive Flying Experience Shari Eisenberg

I like to think of myself of a positive person and more importantly, a good traveler. I have to be honest with you (as it’s the best policy): people who save seats on Southwest flights bug me.

Folks, we are NOT in second grade. Sitting sideways with your leg on a seat is not adult behavior. It’s one thing if you have a friend coming to sit with you (although s/he should have just boarded with you), but it’s another story if you are flying solo.

Just because you checked in before me doesn’t give you authority to box me or our fellow flyers out.  Do like these brothers and sit in the same seat. It’s a win-win. No one has to sit in the middle seat.

I feel much better.

  3. Oh my goodness! an incredible article dude. Thanks Nonetheless I am experiencing difficulty with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anybody getting equivalent rss downside? Anyone who knows kindly respond. Thnkx

  4. Here’s the thing though: I totally save seats on Southwest IF I am flying with a friend or coworker who got stuck in a later boarding group. I am always saving them a middle seat, which is pretty undesirable anyway, so I have never felt as though I was inconveniencing any other solo passengers by ushering them toward another seat. I mean, what difference does it make to that person whether they sit next to me or some other stranger? Am I wrong?

  5. This is why I’m afraid to fly Southwest. I’m never in the mood to be fighting someone before I’ve even sat down because they’re being foolish with their giant bag in the seat like they can’t even see me death-staring them. Nope.
