Not for Early Bird. This is the A1-A15 upgrade that is a perk of the higher level Chase Southwest cards. I think they reimburse 4 a year.

At least T-24 check-in covers the plane-change connection and ensuing rivals.

The lambs.

Well, I had to sit on the floor by the toilets but I made it.

Friday pm
OAK-GEG
T-24
B36

Immediately purchased BS boarding for $30 (received A1) and will save a seat for my son who is B35
I think I may still have a credit left on my Premier card.

At this point it seems worth it to pass on EBCI and roll the dice, esp. with the Chase credits. Except perhaps on peak flights from MCO and LAS.

12/21/2023 @3:05 PM MDW->LGB

Booked in about T-23:50 and got B-44

Max 8 so I know I will get an aisle seat for sure

Ended up on a 737-800 and not a Max so still a Max plane virgin. As expected, I got an aisle seat. I could have had an exit row middle but no need since aisle seats were available. I am in row 17, drinks service started in row 16.

I believe they announced an almost full flight. There are a few middle seats vacant but not a lot so it is indeed close to full.

Heading back to MDW. My first ever one stop plane change but it will give me a chance to win big at the slots in the LAS airport, or not.

12/27 SNA->LAS @ 5:05 PM. A-53

12/27 LAS->MDW @ 7:20 PM. A-60

Weird one here. Flying out of AUS on Monday morning to LGB, an ice storm is forecast. Got the Free Changes notification. Changed to Sunday afternoon, the only nonstop, no problem.

Checked in immediately after as flight is in 23 hour and 30 minutes. We got A38 and B02. Was all in one booking and one change of flights for both of us. To be honest, we expected high B or low C boarding numbers. No status, WGA tickets, no upgrade bought.

maybe it’s an empty flight, but the only nonstop the other way, yesterday, that we were on, was 100% full, so an empty flight seems odd.

Maybe Serendipitous boarding, with lots of people changing flights due to the weather, A38 and B02 changed their flight (your new flight) freeing up their spots for you to take.

Now having Deja Vu, reusing boarding positions was discussed last year, I think SWAVictor mentioned some are reused and some aren't, don't remember the rules

Very interesting! Makes good sense. I will prefer to believe this unless I hear otherwise.

1/15/24 RSW>BWI C1
1/15/24 BWI>SYR A58

This is totally opposite of what I normally experience. Usually it's the connection that will get a worse number. A bunch of folks must have paid for EB on the RSW flight.
