7 AM flight -> MDW->SEA

Checked in at T-23:55

B-03. Rather have that than A-60 although I doubt much family boarding for that early of a flight?

Just looking for an aisle seat which I will easily get.

Update: Tried to get a count but all I got was the generic “flight full” which I knew was BS as not that many at the gate when boarding started Quite a few empty seats including middle in.both exit rows. I took 15E which is the two seater row. WiFi is actually decent.

SEA->MDW 12:20 flight.

Checked in about 23:55 and got B-04, one boarding position higher than my inbound flight. Talk about consistency.


Looks like a neatly full flight. Scored an exit row aisle. Couple in front of me.got a middle and window exit row seats.

Checked my companion wife in for SNA-DEN at T-24 exactly for the 6:45am flight and got A60

I had A18 but two preboarders took my preferred exit row seats. Since they're usually not allowed to sit in the exit row I'm guessing they were FAMs

12:35 PM flight -> MDW->LAX

Brought up the atomic clock page (time.us) to try and sync as closely as possible to T-24 check in time. Seems the WN servers are a bit behind as I got the > 24 hours error until the atomic clock read 12:35:15

Anyway got A-59. Not sure if I would have preferred a B-1 instead to grab a seat after family boarding. And yes, I could still wait and board after they board but an A boarding pass is an A boarding pass I guess.

Edited to add: 700 series aircraft and almost completely full. Scored an exit row window seat.

Check in at 6:30am - 24:00
SJC -> SNA WN1853

A60 & B1 ... Travelling with my 4 year old, so boarded at A60 but let the one A-lister who came up go ahead of us on the jetbridge.

Flight was completely full, so a lucky guy at the end of the B group got an aisle seat just behind the exits next to us after I finished installing the carseat.

Flight info: PDX-PHX-BUF 12:55pm
Checkin time: 1:15 (I forgot!)
Boarding card: B1 for PHX, A54 for BUF

Neither flight was full and I'm not sure middle seats were used on either. I got lucky.

Its been a while since Ive taken a connecting flight on WN.

DCA-MDW 6:55am T-24 A53
MDW-SEA 9:00am T-27 B35

There must be a lot of connecting passengers or EB for MDW-SEA?! Or does early (but not EB) check in get the shaft?

There are tons and tons of flights from the east that connect through MDW, so it's possible that you got B35 for the second flight because lots of others were able to check in for their flights before the T-24 for your DCA-MDW flight. If the first leg of their trip departs before the 6:55am that you have, then they would have first chance at checking in for the MDW-SEA leg.

BNA-DCA 12/28 @ 6:45pm (delayed to about 7:10pm) - checked in right at T-24, got B10 which was fine. Full flight, ended up with aisle seat about 3 rows past exits.

DEN-SJC, 9:15pm 1/3/20. Checked in at T-24, got B27.

Edit: Aisle seat, just behind the exit rows. The flight was not particularly full.
