So, honestly, you don’t know much about Southwest and their fare products? Wanna Get Away fares do not mean you board last, boarding is based on when you check in online, beginning 24 hours prior to departure. Passengers that book Anytime fares and Wanna Get Away fares check in at 24 hours prior to departure and they are assigned a boarding position at that time. A-list and A-list preferred passengers are checked in 36 hours prior to flight along with those that purchased “Early Bird”... “Early Bird” passengers may be on either Anytime or Wanna Get Away fares.
So, honestly, you did not read my post. I never said that you are going to 100% be the last person to board, just that there's a decent chance that you will board in the last group (Key word: no seat assignment). So be it if there are only two sections separated by fare. But hey, if bashing every poster who does not agree with your ideology makes you happy...
Actually, you said “ you’re last to board”... there is no “may”, “might”, “could be”, or any other qualifiers in your original post. So, yes, I did read your post and I responded accordingly. If you buy “Business Select” you are assigned a boarding position between A1-A15; everything else is up for grabs. If an A-list Preferred member buys a wanna get away fare, they could end up with A16. So, no, Wanna Get Away fares do not mean that you are going to be in the last group. I pointed out that you didn’t know about what you were posting about; that’s not “bashing”.
Actually, you still ignored part of the post: no seat assignments. You have not considered one stop no plane change, which at times can be the entire size of the A group (I’ve had it happen to me). And, again, you’re also ignoring the fact (which admittedly was stated in the second post) that there is only truly two boarding groups: business select, and everyone else. One’s first, one’s last. There’s no semilast or sort-of select in between (or, you could play the “but there’s A B and C! card, but I’d tell you in return that there’s 160 boarding groups due to the corresponding numbers). If I wanted to say that you are the last person to board, I would have said that you are the last person to board. Also, saying that somebody does not know what they are talking about (like you did) is 100% bashing them.
