Early BIrd customer just got A-list status - what will my boarding be?

So, I have a ticket I purchased months ago with Early Bird Check In.  I have since became A-list (yay).  This will be my first trip with that status.   Will my boarding position be improved now due to A-List, or does it stick to the original EBCI?   Hoping it gets improved!  Please reply... Thanks in advance.

Contact Southwest and request a refund for EBCI.  Your A-List status gets you a boarding position assigned before EBCI.  I'm not saying you will get a refund, but you should ask for one.

If I do NOTHING what will happen?  Will I have better boarding due to recently getting A-list?

Yes, which is why you should request a refund for Early Bird.

Congrats and welcome to the club -- yes, your A List should supersede the EBCI. 

 

Enjoy!

While in normal situations EB is non refundable when I earned A List years a go for the first time they issued me a LUV voucher for the value of the EB so you could request that if they can't refund the fee to the card.
