I find it hard to believe that the entire plane checked in within 2 minutes of the check in process opening. Well, when you check in you have A-List Peferred, A-List, and Early Bird purchasers in front of you. SW automatically gives them boarding spots at t+36 from flight time. That's potentially a lot of people who already have boarding posiions befoe you check in. Also, almost everyone nowadays tries to check in at t+24. So if you are 30 seconds or a minute late, there are other people that checked in before you You sid said you fly SW bi weekly. Why afren't you A-List?
