My colleague who bought EBCI on a flight with 6 of us (none of the rest of us did) got a B1 from MSP-MDW got B1. For me confirmed that I'm not paying $15 if it doesn't at least mean an A boarding pass. The rest of us all got around B45 (we all forgot to check in till he mentioned it, and that was only about 18 hours in advance, way past those organized at T-24). Flight was full with just a few seats open.

On my flights last week from PHL to LAS, checking in at T-24: I had B17, wife had B26. On the return trip: I had B18, wife had B21. Trip out was nearly completely full; the flight back was slightly less than 80% full. We had our own row on the way back.

Quite a number of preboarders and children on the return flight from LAS. There turned out to be no one between me and her, despite our 3 position difference. And even though our B18/21 position was more like an early C due to the early boarders, we had no issues getting 2 seats together after the exit row; we could've had 2 in the exit row together or even starting around row 8 if we wanted center and aisle (I wanted a window).

WN 915 BWI-RDU 8:20 AM
T-24
My companion and I were B23 and B24, way lower than I was expecting. We ended up in 11F and 13C as we didn't see any rows with two seats left in them.

I don't recall ever seeing a connecting flight having so much of a worse boarding position than the originating flight

My run of bad luck continues

Sunday August 19
WN 4318 PHX-SAN
T24
B40 and B41

Thankfully we found a window and an aisle in row 21 and had no one between us but that's the second worst I've ever had.

WN850 LAX-MDW 2:05PM
A58 and B4 (separate reservations, iphone app check-in was slower than web)

WN981 MDW-LAX 12:40PM
B32 and B33 (iphone check-in on two different phones)

Clearly EBCI is worth considering on MDW flights due to connecting pax checking in prior to T24.

PHL-OMA via MDW. Wife and I checked in on different phones at T-24. Got boarding positions in sequential order.

PHL-MDW: A-43/44
MDW-OMA: A-52/53

I was a bit surprised at the later boarding position for the MDW-OMA trip. Not only was I checked in prior to T-24 due to the layover, I would be surprised that so many people have EBCI for that flight. Or maybe it's due to others having layovers and they had earlier flights to MDW than I do.

FRI 11/2 2:30p ATL-MDW: Just checked the Mrs in at T-24 and got A45; best I've ever done! Knew it was gonna be good as the clock on my monitor changed just after my last refresh.

A19 for my A-List+...about the worst I've seen recently

Non-Early Bird

11/1/2018
WN 1186 LAS-BUF
T24
B46
11/10/2018
WN 3533 BUF-LAS
T24
B02

Got an aisle seat on both flights. I don't take up bin space because my small carry-on fits under the seat. $25 per flight for early bird is not worth it for me.

Have done a few same day trips DAL - DCA and never understand seating position on return trip. It won't let me check in this evening for the return based on past history.

Did you book it as a round trip?
