Can I get some opinions on Southwest Airlines?
I've never flown Southwest before so I'm looking for some opinions. My wife and I are taking a plane trip to San Francisco this summer (7 hours’ worth of flight time). I'm all about saving money so Southwest is looking pretty good right now (especially with their "Wanna Get Away" fares.) I'm aware of Southwest's unassigned seating and that the first seat choices goes to the first boarding group. I'm also very aware that if my wife isn't next to me then the money I saved won't be worth the headache.
So with that being said, what is your experience with SWA? Is it worth the money I will save but possibly not sit next to each other? Or should I fork over the extra bucks to actually get assigned seating on another airline?
