Southwest Airlines will automatically reserve a boarding position for A-List and A-List Preferred Members beginning 36 hours prior to scheduled departure of the Member's confirmed Southwest Airlines flights to ensure the Member will receive the best available boarding position. Southwest Airlines will "reserve" boarding positions for A-List and A-List Preferred Members, but Members are still responsible for printing their boarding passes.
Please note when traveling this holiday season, reserved boarding privileges are only provided for A-List and A-List Preferred Members. If an A-List or A-List Preferred Member is traveling on a multiple-Passenger reservation, reserved boarding privileges will not be provided for non-A-List Members in the same reservation. This includes family and friends traveling on the same itinerary or traveling with the Tier status holder.
