Flight attendants were rude in asking parties to return to assigned seats, while there were several completely open rows towards the back, (no obvious or explained reason aside from "assigned ticket seats" that they should remain empty. Families or companions could have traveled together- seemed unnecessary to prevent this, only gain noticed was Flight attendants satisfaction at denying seat relocation."
