I am flying southwest for the first time in december and unfortunately I have been watching airline and I am thinking I made a mistake going with Southwest. I have a few questions: 1. Southwest overbooks their flights. If you print your boarding pass at home, say at midnight, is that considered checking in or do you have to check in again at the counter before you go throught security. I will get there about 2 hours before the flight but that is to account for checking in bags and going through security. 2. Also can you print your boarding pass at home at midnight if you are going to check bags when you get to airport. Thanks in advance for the answers.
