“Not bad for a cheap flight”
Flight from Salt Lake City to Seattle
- Round Trip
- Number of Stops:
- No stops
- Date of Flight:
- July 2010
- Seat Class:
Southwest allows passengers to choose their own seats (first come, first served), and I found a fairly comfortable place between two fellow passengers. But an obese man had seated himself in the bulkhead seat and the flight attendant asked him to trade places with person seated on the aisle next to me (he was too large to be seated near an emergency exit). As a result, his girth spilled onto my seat and I was squished into about a quarter of it (not a large space, considering plane seats are all ready small). He was affable and courteous, but he was so large his lap tray could not be used. I was unable to get past him to use the bathroom and had little room to move at all. Thank goodness the flight was short! I couldn't help feeling he should have purchased another seat, rather than taking his, plus most of mine.
On the return flight, I sat in the bulkhead seats, had congenial, quiet neighbors, and slept for most of the flight.
All in all, I think Southwest does a fine job and has good prices. I'll definitely choose them again. But I would like to be able to have access to my entire seat next time.
