First-time SWA traveler here with a question about Early Bird Check-In. Since I will be traveling with only a Carry-on bag, does this mean that I can completely BYPASS the traditional Check-In counter, proceed to the assigned gate, and just fall in line at the gate when my Group is called with NO interaction whatsoever with the boarding gate desk, OR, do I still have to present my ID Credentials at some point to SWA personnel (aside from the TSA Agent)? If so, at what point do I present my ID to SWA? Also, if ALL overhead bins are full and I end up having to check my bag, can I pick up my bag upon arrival within the Jetway or do I have to go through the rigamarole of waiting for it at the baggage claim carousel? Thanks All!
