AIrplanes do not totally empty at each destination. There are through passengers who remain on the plane.
Um, largely nope. I was on a AA flight last year that was same flight number and same equipment JFK-PHX-SEA. They made the whole plane deplane in Phoenix and reboard (I was going to SEA), just as if they were connecting flights.
WN I think is the exception, not the rule. And WN has free-for-all boarding so their reservation system doesn't have to handle seating.
