Was able to check in 25 hours before flight

Curious as to why it let me check in 25 hours before flight instead of 24 hours.  Flying in central time zone so no time zone changes or anything.  Flight leaves at 220pm on Sunday.  I set a reminder on my phone to check in and for some reason I set it for 118pm on Saturday instead of 218pm.  So my reminder goes off and I enter my reservation info on the app and as soon as it turns 120pm I hit the button and it gave me my boarding position.  It wasn’t until several hours later that I realized it let me check in 25 hours before.  I don’t get it, but I’ll take it. Got a very good boarding position, A24

Congrats on the great boarding position.

 

I suspect the SW computers comprehended that spring forward  will happen tomorrow morning. So your checkin was 24 actual hours before checkin. The computers understood that an  hour would simply vanish.

And here I am thinking I uncovered some little unknown secret!  Lol.  That makes perfect sense.  Thank you!
