If you tried to force your way past someone, that's assault.

You sound like a real fun person to sit next to on a long flight!

I don't think anyone would consider it assault to step over someone to sit down next to them on a plane.

This presumes the plane is loading from empty and is not an entransit stop and already half full.

I would encourage those of you who are skeptical that this is a big deal to read for yourselves how bent out of shape Southwest FFs get about seat-saving. Here's a link to a 41-page (!) thread at FlyerTalk.

No sane person would. Are you suppose to stand in the aisle and beg them to live? No, you just go ahead and get in your seat.

I'm not skeptical, but all it took was the first half dozen posts and all I saw was one person complaining and multiple people reminding him that there is no policy against seat saving.

So no, I'm not surprised there are people complaining but I'm also not surprised there are people stating the fact that there is no policy against seat saving to be enforced. Pretty much the same as here, actually.

Still ignoring the fact that there also isn't a policy in support of seat saving, I see.

In the real world, people sometimes need to save a seat. If everyone did it, the airline would change the system. But it's just a few, in my experience.
If SWA won’t fix this lack of rules, passengers can by asserting their rights to sit in the seats that were saved by gamers.

Believe me--it would happened. I have seen it happen when it has created a scene.

Just play fair. You paid for one upgrade, not three. I observed a grandfather once pay for ten upgrades because he didn't want to jostle for seats, he was being fair and following the etiquette for open seating.

Still having a lack of basic understanding of logic, I see. There doesn't have to be a policy mandating seat saving, the absence of a prohibition means that it's allowed.

You, yourself, posted a news article that shows this is not true. Why do you keep repeating this?

(You also keep ignoring the "if it doesn't impede boarding" context of that statement.)
