Most of the people who sit around my premium LD seats are not corporate or wealthy, and in fact split plans. Transparency in their seating relocation process would help with season ticket retention, in my opinion. The gradual improvement of my seats were a reason I stuck through a lot of the lean years. Now I suspect they simply hold back the better locations to make it easier to bring in new season ticket holders, rather than rewarding existing fans.

So it appears that they are lowering ticket prices to bring in new fans, but picking this as the time to stick it to their fans who actually have been buying lots of tickets the past few years? They got half of it right. (I'm not looking for a decrease, just hold the least pretend to not take my loyalty for granted).
