I’m not a fan of Southwest. I like to have an assigned seat and don’t want to deal with the stress of having to jockey for a desirable space with open seating like the carrier offers. One woman recently figured out an obnoxious way to block seats so that others would pass them up. She placed several bags of Dunkin Donuts across an entire row.
As View from the Wing reported earlier today, a woman placed three bags of doughnuts across an entire row of seats behind her on a Southwest flight from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to Dallas Love Field (DAL) in order to reserve the seats for others in her party. According to the post on Reddit, she repeatedly lied and told other passengers that the three had gone to the bathroom. A flight attendant was apparently also aware of the situation and did not get involved.
Anthony’s Take: This isn’t right. If you want to save a seat next to you for a travel companion, I’m okay with that. But reserving an entire row when people pay more to board early and snag seats is not fair and the flight attendant should have gotten involved. Another example of selfish behavior while on a plane.
