Southwest boarding order

Hi - I checked in for my flight exactly 24 hours prior and was assigned to the B group, numbers 33-35. We are 2 adults traveling with a 7 year old. It is unlikely we will get 3 seats together and that's OK, but I'm worried my son will have to sit alone! Anyone with experience know if this is something I should worry about or are we still early enough in the boarding process that we'll find 2 seats together? Will the gate agent help us out so at least 2 of is can sit together? Traveling tomorrow morning. Thanks.

The three of you will each have to sit separately? Is that what you are thinking? I wouldn't worry about it.

I have been on SW flights more than once where the Flight Attendant has asked if anyone could move accomodate a parent and child.

U should be able to get at least 2 seats together. If not the FA will ask someone to move to accommodate u.

You got B passes with low numbers. Absolutely no need to worry. There should be plenty of empty rows in the back of the plane when you board.

I would not worry! You won't get into the first several rows, but you will get seats together.

The "worstest" case scenario, there will be plenty single travelers who'll switch their seats with you!

No matter where you are in the lineup,Im almost sure you can ask for early boarding and at least one adult can go and get a seat beside the child. They do this for the elderly and Im sure they will do it for children as well.

"Im almost sure you can ask for early boarding . . . . They do this for the elderly and I'm sure they will do it for children as well."

WN boards adults traveling w/ children aged 4 or under between the A and B groups. They No longer just allow anyone traveling w/ kids to pre-board.

But w/ a B group, you won't have a problem sitting together, or at least two of you.
