Southwest's Early-Bird Check-in?

Jump to last reply

Has anyone used this new service/product?

In theory, it queues you up automatically 36 hrs. before lift-off (er, take off) and you get a number in line that lets you jump ahead of everyone except those who paid more for their ticket and/or bought the Early Bird option before you did. I'm wondering how well it works, whether you do better with this arrangement than with the old 23 hrs. 59 min. 58 seconds ahead on-line check in? I admit, I'm suspicious.

And do you have to do anything other than look to see where you ended up in the line and print out the boarding pass?
