Wow - I'm really surprised

I just checked in for our Southwest flight tomorrow. We're at mere minutes under 24 hours now - and all my boarding passes are in the C group. I expected B, not C. Thankfully both Lenny and Abby have "problems" as we preboard but if we didn't, that would totally suck. Just my honest opinion.

I guess it just goes to show how many people now purchase Early Bird Check In, so it obviously does very well for Southwest.

I set an alarm on my phone for 10 minutes before we need to check-in for flights, pre-enter all flight info/names, as then as soon as the clock turns to the minute push the button.

It's works for us as we get B group--before 30. Only one time did we get a later B group #.

It's funny, too, as our son doesn't want to sit with us on the plane. The husband and I often get exit row seats--not always together, but aisles across from each other, and our son likes bulkhead seats or somewhere else on the plane even though he is old enough for the exit row. I like that SW gives us that flexibility.


Have a great trip!

Must be a lot of early bird check ins on that flight!
As Cheryl said, it goes to show how popular that option is.

Kinda like how minutes after dates are released flight prices creep up That doesn't surprise me at all as I always do EBCI (even though we pre-board too) and anfew times I've gotten B group

I agree that’s surprising. We always do EBCI because we can just never be sure we’ll be able to check in at 24 hours, especially if it happens when we’re at work. We’ve always been fortunate in getting A assignments, but I know that we’re competing with many others. I purchase it when purchasing the tickets, so maybe that helps. I attribute it to serendipity.
