Companion pass for 2. the Southwest employee taking boarding passes does not know of this !!!! Twice I had to board with B group , trying to explain this post to the employees!!!! My wife will travel with me again in 2 weeks. I can only except more issues due to employees not letting her board with me. I am almost always A-16. By the time the employee looks and reads this post. We are boarding with B group!!!! For you to be able to board together you would need to be on the same confirmation number. For example I'm A List if I traveled with my mom and she is not on the same confirmation number as me she would need to board at her boarding group however if we booked together we would be assigned boarding positions right next to each other. Keep in mind if you book less than 36 hours before the flight you won't be right next to each other as other A Listers and EB check in customers will be assigned. I'm confused here too. You can board at the same time if under the same reservation (same confirmation number), but it's not clear how to do this... I've been told over and over that the boarding should be consecutive, but that has not been my experience. I'm boarding group A, and my companion is group-c. Recently I was told, "we technically don't do this [board your companion at the same time] at this location [MDW]" Clear as mud.
