12:29… tic… tic… tic. I’m about to play the Southwest Airlines boarding pass game.
Tomorrow’s our wedding anniversary (and Thanksgiving) and we’re heading west to the sun.
For the three of us to sit together we need to get at least one “A” boarding pass. That one person holds the row for the other two. Southwest hands the passes out beginning 24 hours before the flight–exactly.
I am not the only one playing this game. I’ve been astounded to check in seconds after the process opened and still be close to fifty back! There are some reserved for their most frequent fliers, but not that many.
Not that I’m complaining. By using this method Southwest makes seat assignment a skill position.
Gotta go. Six minutes left.
Update: A31, A51, A54. I hit the enter key at exactly 12:40 PM. We’re guaranteed to fly together. Not bad.
