I find this whole boarding process very stressful! In order, but not guaranteed, to get a decent boarding position, you must set an alarm to remind you to check in at exactly 24 hours in advance. It seems we always fly the earliest flights so the day before my vacation, I get to get up at the crack of dawn just to check in. And that certainly doesn't guarantee you an A boarding position. And while you are on vacation, you need to be somewhere where you have WiFi or internet service so you can check in yet again. Sometimes, it's not feasible. And purchasing Early Bird does not guarantee an A boarding. I just had a flight where I purchased Early Bird 7 months in advance and I received B13 boarding round trip !! Just up the ticket price and let me pick my seat in advance!!
