    They are the ones that have been in the news for trying to make fat people (like michael moore) pay for two seats IIRC

    yeah everyone is 5'8" and skinny these days. I am 6'4" and find myself uncomfortable on a place when it is full.

    If truth in advertising were enforced, Southwest would have to call it Telephone Booth Class. I don't fly them unless there is no alternative.

    I try to avoid all carriers if the destination is 7 hours or under I just drive. If not I rate the carriers in this order:

    Southwest
    American
    Frontier
    Delta
    United
    US Air
    Continental

    When I fly to my Florida snow bird home I do not check luggage. I just carry a small carry on bag for my meds etc.

    No, but not to save time. So I don't lose it. Generally I'm carrying valuable items and items commonly stolen.

    It ticks me off the so many people ignore the carry-on limit - meaning overhead space runs out. One time I got on late and they announced the rest of carry-ons would have to go in luggage because the off-head compartments were full. I had a large sum of cash I was traveling to buy a car with, plus laptops, in my carry one in a soft unlocked carry-on bag. $30K in cash in a soft carry-on bag put into luggage at the last minute? I scrambled to get it under my jacket, the laptops at my feet, and gave them the mostly empty bag. If I had instead refused and wanted off the plane I felt that could invite the TSA and we all know how much the government likes to just seize people's cash.
