The aisle and the window seats are long gone at this point. As you’re walking down that airplane aisle, you start the scanning process.
You take quick glances at first but then as you get halfway down the plane, you start stealing longer glances at potential seat mates with the realization you’ll have to make the decision very soon. No one is spared -you must find the most desirable people to squeeze between.
Do not be mistaken though — the Southwest boarding process is much more than this initial lineup process.
See, the last 1/3rd of people boarding are destined to sit in a middle seat.

That’s because there are no assigned seats on Southwest flights.
Rather, as passengers board the plane, they may choose any unoccupied seat.
