    How can you tell if the southwest flight is coming in from another airport and will be partly full of passengers from Orlando-Manchester, NH? I know our flight down is super early so that won't be a problem but I'm concerned about our flight back home. How do I find this out?

    I did the same-booked with points-price dropped and I switched-the $5 just transferred to the next flight without an issue.

    How do you find out where your plane is coming from?

    When I did it, I was able to figure it out using the flight # and Southwest's full flight schedule.

    First time flying SW, a couple of questions:
    We are two adults, 17 year old and 3 year old and we bought the wanna get away fare with no seat selection and no EBCI.

    ~how will the boarding process work for us? No matter what prints on our passes we will be able to board between groups A and B?

    ~do we really have to check in 24 hours in advance? If we can really board between groups A and B no matter what is the point of checking in 24 hours in advance?

    ~we have two flights Orlando to Phoenix & Phoenix to Seattle, not sure if there is a plane change but I assume as with other flights we will have to get off the plane and re-board (if no plane change) and therefore lose our seats?

    ~should I buy the EBCI anyways? We are trying to save money though so is it necessary?

    Thanks in advance for the help :beach:

    I believe under 5 does have option to board between A and B. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. I would still check in at 24 hour mark as you may get an A set of numbers that would get you on any sooner.

    If it's the same plane, I've never had to get off. In fact, after they do head count, you can even move to "better" seats.

    And you probably know this, but the seats are in sets of 3 so make sure there's a plan as someone will have to sit slightly apart.

    You can still get put pretty far back going between a and b. I would definitely check in 24 hours ahead.

    I believe families with children can board between A and B. That may be limited for 1 adult per child or 2 adults per child I am not sure. I would call southwest to confirm.
    Anyway, as PP says the seats are 3 to a section. You can probably board between A and B if you and your 17yr and 3 yr are together. Let dear DH
    get in line. LOL.
    Good luck!

    SW has a new sale just released. I at least got my flight to MCO for $93, now just to get a better price for coming home. Not thrilled its not a non-stop, but there is no plane change and only adds an hour to our trip.

    Mine are really cheap right now too, but I don't have the money to buy them. *sigh* Hoping they will stay low for a week or at least reasonable.

    This sale only lasts until Thursday. We were going to drive for our trip in May but now are considering changing plans.

    All four of you may not be able to board during family boarding (between groups A and B). The official SW language indicate one adult per one child under 5. But I don't know how strictly they enforce that.
    I've heard though that sometimes they don't even offer family boarding if there are A LOT of families on the flight or the plane is going to a popular tourist destination (like Orlando). But, I don't think that is common.

    Check your reservation to see if you have to change planes. If you don't have to change planes, you may be able to stay on the plane.

    Whether or not to buy EBCI is a tricky issue for me. I think most of the time it isn't really necessary if you can check-in online 24 hours prior to the flight - and, if you have some flexibility in where you want to sit. For instance, if you're OK with you and your DH each pairing-off with one child and not necessarily having to sit in the same row or adjacent rows, then you should be fine without EBCI. You still likely not be too far apart.

    I've only flown once, but DH talked me into flying to our first trip to WDW in April. I got all four of our tickets to MCO roundtrip for $391.00 total! :banana::banana:

    We're traveling with a 4 and 6 year old. I'd love any tips that you frequent flyers could give me.

    Thank you for all of your help!
