Southwest not currently evaluating assigned seating policy, other opportunities exist: CEO

    Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly said the carrier currently is not evaluating an assigned seating policy (Skift, 26-Jul-2018). “Let me be very blunt, we are not looking at assigning seats right now… We are not talking about assigning seats now, and we’re not talking about looking at it sometime in the future”, he asserted. Mr Kelly however said there are “a lot more opportunities” for revenue generation and “when they’re ready for prime time, we’ll share them… We’re not sitting idly by”.
