Early Bird and Companion Pass

New Arrival

My wife purchased a ticket.  Added me as a free companion.  And then purchased Early Bird for her ticket.  My ticket does not have early bird.   Will I be able to board with her?  I am seeing different posts recently about companion pass boarding together with purchased ticketholder.

See this post:

In short, they should get the next boarding position after you.

I find that even if we check in at different times, it always puts the companion one spot behind the primary. Best of luck and safe travels!

As long as the companion pass holder checks in first right? Or does the companion checking in make a reverse check-in of the CP Holder?

 

Obviously a moot point for companion pass holders that are also A-list which would be already assigned at T-36 hours.
