I am going to Chicago with a group of 8 family members in late August and I am trying to determine whether it is worth getting Early-Bird Check or stick with the usual check in they have online. Three small kids are in our group too. I booked our tickets in May
I called Southwest and they said that our flight is originating from ANOTHER city with passengers on-board so even if I do get it, would their be any advantage or disadvantage getting Early-Bird tickets at this stage in the game? Also, it is $12.50 per person so it is going to be an epic hit on the wallet.
I don't care if we are in A or B group, but as long as we are sitting together.
