Südwestpassengers enter in three groups - A, B2 and C - and can occupy any open area. Within each group, each passenger is allocated snowboarding position on the basis of criteria such as frequently flyer category, ticketing category and on-line check-in timing.
The A group passenger gets the best choice of seating, while those in C are usually trapped in the centre seating and have difficulty locating the group. South West is offering two rewarded choices for better positions: EarlierBird Checking In und upgrade your boardsing. The EarlyBird Check-In cost 15 US dollars per route and generated 358 million US dollars in revenues last year.
Enhances your place in the line, but does not ensure an A or, in some cases, even a Card Onboard. Airlines' best embarkation cards, A1 to A15, are reserved for Business Select customers who embark before anyone else except those who are eligible for the pre-board. However, not every plane has Business Select customers, so Southwest ruled that it could make cash by reselling the vacant seats at the gates.
It' called this " Upgraded Boarding." While some travellers see it as a waste OF moneys, others consider it a smart capital outlay, especially if you own a carbon on-board ticket on a cross-country trip. Carrier has not published current stats about improved boarder. EarlyBird cheque in was introduced in 2009 at $10.
When asked in January whether EarlyBird's appeal was likely to boost, Southwest CEO Gary Kelly was cautious.
