Southwest "EarlyBird" check-in - details?

Jump to last reply

We are flying some family members to NC for our daughter's college graduation. After listening to my brother whine about how he does not like SWA boarding/seat selection procedures, I discovered for $10 extra I could buy him EarlyBird check-in. As near as I can figure out this means he does not have to check-in on-line 23 hrs 59 minutes prior to flight to get a decent boarding position - but can not figure out from the website exactly how this works.

Do they automatically assign him a boarding position and it then does not matter when he checks-in on-line, as long as he does so prior to the flight and prints a boarding pass - or is there something I missed?
