Is booking Early Bird a week before your flight too late?

Hello! I have a roundtrip flight in a week to Orlando, and today I decided to book Early Bird check in. I found out that the flight is sold out, so I'm wondering if it was worth even booking at all this late. I mainly wanted Early Bird so I wouldn't have to think about checking in while I was in Orlando, but me and my Girlfriend would also like to sit together, so anything in A or even B boarding would be nice, but will that still be possible considering I booked Early Bird this late?

As long as you buy early bird 36 hours in advance you will be good. 

 

I have bought the early bird 38 hours in advance and still received an A boarding pass as not everyone buys early bird so you should be fine. You might get a low B but my guess is a low B if not a high A.

 

Happy Travels
