Southwest Airlines Accused of Ageism

In order to have the best chance at getting an A boarding pass, which puts you in the first 45 to board a Southwest flight, you need to check in online 24 hours before your flight time.

Bradical Mindspew says this is ageist.

Southwest specifically leaves those without computer knowledge at a clear disadvantage. I’m not saying that this was intentional by any means. What I am saying is that it’s unfair that the older segment of their client base, who were raised to use typewriters and have no understanding of how to use a computer or internet, is pretty much screwed over and left to get the scraps when it comes to seating.

Oh, woe is me, I have grey hair and I’ll never be able to learn another new thing. Bradical is just wrong on this. You could make the same argument that is might be racist, or sexist. And that would be way off base too.
How to work your way around the tubes has nothing to do with age. So stop being so paranoid, Bradical.
