Companion pass boarding position

New Arrival

I'm A-List Preferred with Companion Pass (had it in 2021 and requalified for 2022).

 

During my past two trips with my companion/wife (one in late-October, one in late-December), she was auto-assigned the A boarding position right behind me.  Never had that happen before.  

 

Does anyone know if this is a new policy (that would be awesome!), or a incentive program that's expired/expiring?

 

Thanks!

It's a new policy. - actually several months old by now.

This is one of those things that SWA tested "under the radar" for months and I think it's official policy now!

It's not been officially announced yet (oddly) but this is a new policy that Southwest has been testing for some time now.
