How does this work with Southwest Vacations? I dont see a early bird option for a already purchased vacation package. How do you buy your way out of C boarding and the middle seat on a 4 hour plane ride to Las Vegas? Nothing like having to pay a extra $40(2 passengers RT) on a already paid for vacation.

and anyone else with the SWA Vacations issue.
If you were already holding SWAV tickets when this option became available, you are getting screwed. SWAV flights aren't eligible. I am hold SWAV tickets for Sept26 and would have booked directly if I had know this was going to be an option, now it is out of my control.
Shame on Southwest for not having some interim policy for these ticket holders. I guess they are arrogant enough to figure they don't "need" any one passengers business, so they can just screw you and not worry about it.
I called (214) 792-4223 and got $100 voucher out of them but all I really wanted was the option to buy Early Bird like everyone else (like I said, would I have known abou this option I would have booked directly through SW and not complained)
I suggest every single person in this predicament call (214) 792-4223 and demand something in return for getting screwed and being taken advantage of. Maybe enough phone calls will make them rethink this stupid policy.
Start assigning seats like a civilized airline!! This is likely my last flight with Southwest as I have had several bad experiences with their idiotic boarding system.
