Any Priority Boarding Among Early Bird Check-Ins For Companions to Business Select Fare

Unrelenting
New Arrival

I purchased a Business Select fare. Based on that reservation, we made a reservation for my companion using my companion pass, and my companion purchased early bird check in. Does my companion get higher priority boarding among those purchasing early bird check in than companions of Anytime and/or Wanna Get Away fare holders who also bought early bird check in?

I am restating my question to ask it better.

 

I purchased a Business Select fare. Based on that reservation, we made a reservation for my companion using my companion pass, and my companion purchased early bird check in.

 

Does my companion get higher priority boarding than those with Anytime and/or Wanna Get Away reservations who also bought early bird check in?

Based on previous reports, the companion of a Business Select fare ticketed passenger receives no adjustment to their normally selected boarding position, whether that is through EarlyBird or not. Companions of other fare ticketed passengers/companion pass holders would receive a sequential boarding position to the companion pass holder. It's a perk for Companion Pass holders, but excludes Business Select fares.

To be clear, they'll not receive any "upgrade" because of the Business Select fare, but will receive their EarlyBird Check-In boarding position among all EBCI purchasers based on time of purchase.
