I just got the southwest airlines equivalent of Forrest Gumped. I asked a woman sitting in the window seat if the aisle seat (2 away) was free, and she said yes. As I started to sit down she said, “You know, it’s not a booked flight. You might find something else if you keep going.”
I like to think she wanted to spread out. And her foot seemed hurt, so maybe she needed lots of leg room.
Or maybe riding southwest is more like middle school than I’d like to remember :-p
