They are coming from my aunt from CHI so I don't know if she can able to check them in online but overall its not an issue where they sit or not. I just don't want them to get bad seat aka last couple of rows.
|Quoting LAXLocal (Reply 5):|
Can you check in online if using a senior fare?
|Quoting B747forever (Reply 4):|
There is no difference between the front row seats and the last couple of row seats.

Personally I have never been on Southwest but I hate their concept of free seating because of what you are travelling with few family members/friends and there are only middle seats left or there are only 2 seats left together and you are travelling in a group of 4-5 people.

I have boarded as late as the B40s and never had trouble sitting with my party.
|Quoting type-rated (Reply 12):|
It must be working, a friend of mine just flew ATL-HOU and didn't want to pay the fee for advanced boarding. He and his son got on board and couldn't find two seats together. All that was left were single seats. And he had an 'A' boarding pass. He said when they called for the Early Bird boarding about half of the people in the departure lounge boarded.
|Quoting aklrno (Reply 13):|
This sounds suspicious. They don't call for early bird boarding. Everyone has a number. You line up by number. The only way to know who paid and who didn't is to ask everyone in line. A-list and business select tickets also get lower numbers than early bird, but still in the A group. Handicap gets on first, along with UMs. Finally, if your segment is a continuation of an incoming fight, some people are already seated.
There are about 130 seats on the plane. There are at most 60 A's. Unless there were a lot of handicapped people and unaccompanied children getting on and a big crowd continuing its hard to see the A group getting separated unless there were people on board who insisted on getting the middle seat.
