I'm planning a trip to San Jose later this year, with the following proposed route:
AKL -> LAX 2145 - 1420 on NZ2
LAX -> SJC 1825 - 1925 on SWA0849
I would like to get a nice window seat on the Southwest flight, so I would like to check-in before I leave New Zealand.
However I'm a unfamiliar with online check-in and the process at Southwest, and here is my question:
Can I check-in online from New Zealand (so I make it to group A for the flight), and then check my bags in at LAX (some 20 hours later), and retain the original boarding group?
