Booking for 3, including companion pass

Adventurer C

I have a first-time Companion Pass; earned with opening of SWA credit card.  I need advice about how to book my flight for 3 people. Lets see if i can clearly describe:


Passenger A is me:  I will pay for my flight (with travel funds).

Passenger B is daughter #1: she will be my designated Companion.

Passenger C is daughter #2:  she will book with my Rapid Rewards points.


I know its advised to check and see if there are 3 seats on my desired flight.  Its to Costa Rica and isn't until August.  So I don't anticipate any problem with this.


But in what ORDER do you suggest I book? Since A is booked with funds, and C is booked with points I will have to book them separately. Or does it matter?


So, OPTION 1:  book A & attach CP. Then book C.

       OPTION 2:  book C.  Then book A & attach CP.

Order doesn't matter, but you will want to book separately as you have mentioned and of course you cannot add companion until after you have booked pass holder's ticket.
