When I check in at T-24 will I be able to get E+ seats for all of us, or is the benefit only available to me and one other passenger?

If one of the three happens to be Gold, would THEY be able to get E+ for everyone at booking?

Silver and Gold only get 1 companion to guest into E+. Gold get to do it at booking.
If all on one PNR, you will have to call or split the PNR.

If you have one Silver and one Gold, you can split with one non-status passenger each and get all four into E+ at check in (and the Gold member +1 at booking).

Any elite member can also put up to 8 companions into "preferred" (not E+) seats at time of booking. This can be helpful to get a row or aisle seats when the plane is fairly full.
