Early Bird check in on second flight

New Arrival

Hi, fairly new to Southwest.  Are Early Bird check-ins good for the second leg of a trip, when I have to change planes?  Does the one check in give me the same boarding position for the second flight?

Assuming both connecting flights are booked on the same reservation, yes you will be checked in for both flights when you check in (automatically with Early Bird, otherwise manually by you).

You will have different boarding positions for each flight.

If you booked a round trip flight then you'll check in separately using the same process as above for the return portion of your round trip.
