3 generation travel

New Arrival

I will be leaving BNA for MCO (round trip) in a couple of weeks.  I'm traveling with my daughter (11) and my mom (72).  Are we able to do the 24 hr checkin?  Does it check all 3 of us in at the same time since the tickets were bought together?  Even though my mother is a senior, our tickets are the "Wanna get away".  Am I able to pack snacks and bottled water in my checked bags?

If you have 3 different conformation numbers you will all have to check in separately.  

You can bring snacks but you will have to purchase bottle water after you go through security.

"Be age verified if traveling on Senior, Child, or Infant* fares.
Check in beginning 24 hours prior to your scheduled departure time.
Check in at least one hour prior to your scheduled departure time.
Have purchased an eligible fare type (Customers holding reservation for military fares must proceed to the airport check in).
