Crew Baggage Storage

DCFLYER1
New Arrival

As customer focused as SW is, who’s idea was it to have the crew reserve the forward overhead storage bins?  Somebody should point out that not only is it annoying, it slows down the deboarding process as passengers are trying to retrieve their bags from behind them.  Seems like an easy fix.

Crews frequently move to different planes during the course of a day. Having carry ons up front allows them to get to the next flight on time so that it has a chance to leave on time.

Also, FAA regs require certain materials be within easy reach of an FA at all times.
