**** QUESTION about the A-list and Companion Pass !!! ***
I have been a loyal SWA flyer. For the past 2 years, I have flown a lot and have had 219 RR credits. I was awardrd the companion pass almost a year ago and I'm on the A-list.
Now my GF and I are flying together (with she being the companion pass cardholder) during the year end to Disneyworld. With the new boarding system I don't think I can check in online early and get her the A boading pass. So will I have to board the same group as her (which most likely will not be "A"), or can she come up and board the A group with me? If I have to board with her boarding group (which, again, most likely will not be the A), there are chances that we may not be able to sit together. And the trip wouldn't be as enjoyable as when I was able to check both of us in online 23 hours 59 minutes and 50 seconds before scheduled departure, and we were on the same A boarding group.
It would be good if SW could also implement into the system so that a Companion Pass Cardholder is also on the A-list. Or if this policy is understood and is consistently carried out by the gate agent, this would be ok as well. To SW: please remember that for anyone to be awardrd the companion pass, the person must have flown a lot!
Due to changes in my job, I'm currently not flying at all, so I won't experience the new boarding system until year end. I hope it will be a good one for me and my GF.
