That was my point, if you have paid for the privilege to get a seat position before everyone else, I would like to know what that position is before everyone else . Although you are assigned your position 36 hr before your flight and there isn't a NEED to check in 24 hr prior, I want a notification that tells me the position I was assigned when it's assiged. There is a symbol that indicate early bird check in, but there are also glitches that happen and it may miss it, or it wasn't included correctly..... anything can happen and I don't get checked in early (I would get a refund.... great) but I would like to know that before I get to the airport. I have the SW app and I can get my boarding pass anytime but I don't want to assume it happened, check in late, and get a seat I don't want. I love flying southwest, I usually need to check 2 bags, I like early bird check in, because I like to get on early to get the seat I want and they usually arrive at the destination eatly, I would like to be notified when my Early bird position is assiged AND what it is. I hope southwest would consider that as an option.

I purchased early bird check in but I can not see what position I was "assigned" until 24 hr before the flight, and even then I have to go through the "check in" to get the boarding pass. How do I know if I was actually assigned a boarding position from early check in or just by checking in to get the boarding pass. Southwest need to change that. If I paid to check in early, I want to know my position early. At no time between 36 to 24 hr before the flight does it say " you have been assigned position (insert here), you can print your pass starting 24 hr prior to flight". Why is there no notification that your position has been assigned? How do I know if anything went wrong and now I will need to have the enter button ready to click exactly 24hrs prior to get a decent seat. I do enjoy flying with Southwest, but they need to improve Early bird check in.
