Check In

I'm sure i'm overlooking this, but this discussion board is so helpful, I thought someone would know quickly.  I know I can check in 24 hours prior to my flight departure, but do I also need to check in again 24 hours prior to my return flight, or is only one check in per round trip required?  Thank you!

Yes, you need to check in for both legs of a round-trip.

@AN90,

And I will add that it can be a real pain if you are just going for a weekend fun trip to remember that 24 hour check in for Sunday when one is in the middle of Saturday fun.  

 

I have purchased one way tickets with an Early Bird check in on Sunday when traveling with a non A-List person just to avoid having to set my alarm, stop what I am doing and check them in at the 24 hour moment.  Even though I am A-List Preferred, I try not to save seats.  But I remember many a weekend forgetting to check in at the 24 hour moment when I was in the middle of doing something fun, so I just finally gave up!

 

have a good trip!
