LEVEL check-in “hack”... free seats and bags!

Sun Oct 07, 2018 10:30 pm

I recently flew OAK-BCN and will be doing the return tomorrow. Because LEVEL doesn’t have a fully-functioning website yet (or an AOC for that matter), flights to/from BCN use an alternate Iberia confirmation code and the Iberia website to check in.
I noticed that check in was open about 36 hours prior to flight, before the 24 hours mentioned on the website. I used the Iberia mobile app to go through the process, and the app allowed me to pick seats (for free) and gave us each a 23kg baggage allowance. Once on the flight, we were surprised with the full meal service... which we didn’t order.
I just checked in for the return, 36 hours prior via the Iberia mobile app, and was able to do the same thing. Let’s see if we get surprise meals on the return, as well!
My [guess] is that using the mobile app and/or checking in more than 24 hours in advance bypasses the system that says “don’t give them that” and defaults to normal Iberia practice.
I’m curious if anybody else has done this, or if it works for you in the future!

If I were you, I wouldn’t post this info here. You might bring this to the attention of Level/IB and thus close this loophole.
