As part of this press release which became available earlier today, an announcement from Southwest Airlines has declared that the airline “has selected the Customer seats for its future Boeing 737-800 and 737 MAX aircraft deliveries. The carrier, in partnership with Boeing, will be the first to roll out the new seats, beginning mid-2016, on new deliveries of its Boeing 737-800. B/E Aerospace, who designed and engineered the seats, unveiled the new product today at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany.”

Actually, Shawn, Delta Air Lines has already been ready for this “fight” in the form of Basic Economy airfares, which offers Main Cabin service with fewer flexibility options available in select markets. As I first wrote in this article back in December…
