[QUOTE=Andrea;1123912]Dana, it’s not guaranteed that you’ll get “A” boarding-- it depends on how many people have purchased Early Bird before you. I’d say you’ve got a pretty good shot at it.
This is what was printed on the email I got from Southwest about a week before my summer trip:
“Thanks for purchasing EarlyBird Check-In for your trip! Conveniently print your boarding pass with your pre-assigned boarding position anytime within 24 hours of departure. We’ll see you onboard!”
It’s my understanding that people who purchase the most expensive fares get the first early bird positions regardless of when they were purchased, and then everyone else gets assigned in order of signing up. And since they’re pre-assigned, it doesn’t matter when you do the check-in.
Also: I the Early Bird. With a kid who’s a bit of a worrier, he’s not concerned that we’re somehow going to have to split up.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for clarifying that for me. That’s how I read it too, but I don’t always pay good attention to stuff…lol I was doing like 50 things at once the day I bought the tickets. I hope we get A Boarding. I must be near the front and I have to have an aisle seat. John could care less…:laugh:
