Thanks for your reply. I don't have much experience flying SWA. The reason I'm asking has to do with the 24 or 36 hour early check-in to get boarding assignments. In my mind, it seems the Sacramento passengers who have the 6-ish departure time (thru to Kona) would get a boarding advantage over LAX passengers who have a 10-ish departure time even on that 2nd leg of that Kona flight out of LAX?? Do boarding assignments carry thru on connecting flights? I hope this clears up my question.

INFO: *Coming from the East Coast to fly out the following morning to Kona. *We WANT to fly INTO LA so we can be tourists for a day instead of - FOR EXAMPLE - flying out of Sacramento, which offers the first departure time for the day to Kona (assumed advantage). *LAX flight is a connecting flight from Sacramento with a change of plane. *We want to have / keep the best boarding obtained via Early Bird booking. FLIGHT Option(s): (A) fly into Sac (a1) miss out on visiting LA (a2) fly next morning to Kona (635am to 250pm) connecting/change of plane at LAX or (B) fly into LA (b1) visit LA (b2) next morning direct flight to Kona (1050am to 250pm) QUESTION: In regards to Boarding, is there a PRO or CON to flying out of LAX instead of starting in Sacramento? I hope this makes sense and I apologize if it has been asked already, but I couldn't find any ideas anywhere. Thanks in advance
