Southwest doesn't actually have a Business Class in the traditional sense. They also do not offer assigned seats, instead offering "open seating."

 

If you've purchased a Business Select fare, you'll be assigned a boarding position 36 hours prior to departure, that will be somewhere A1 thru A15, meaning you'll be among the first to board the plane. Once onboard you can select any available seat.

 

Check in online starting at 24 hours prior to departure to access your boarding pass and you'll see your boarding position at that time.

 

Here's some info on how Southwest's boarding system works: Boarding the Plane.

 

Hope this helps.
