With all the security now at the Airports how early are the Limo companies suggesting pick ups?

On a Monday night flight in May Tiffany towncar offered us either 1 1/2 hours or 2 hours. We took the two hour as we were flying Southwest and wanted to be at least the B group although the ticket collector allowed someone with a C boarding pass to enter right before and told them "Shh this will be our secret." I was unhappy and stated so to the collector. I felt bad for the 20 or so other B passes behind us. :(

Thanks Cindy for that info! At least now I have an idea.

What are B and C groups? Classifications on Boarding Passes??? Just being nosey! ;)

Happy Limo leaves the pickup time to us, although I'm sure they would have some advice if we asked, based on the time of day. For example, Sunday afternoon can be a nightmare due to all the cruise ship passengers, but when we flew out this Sunday evening, the lines were almost non-existent. I'm sure the towncar companies know the traffic patterns well! We just never ask because we go to Orlando so much that we know 'em too. :D

Southwest does not have assigned seating instead you get boarding passes with A, B or C. They then load the preboarders, group A, then B and finally C. The earlier you check in the better group you get so you get to board sooner and pick out where you want to sit. I've never been in the C group but I would assume that on full flights you may not get seats together if you are in this group.
