Did you by chance purchase a Business Select fare?

 

Who can purchase EarlyBird Check-In?

Customers who have purchased electronic tickets at the Wanna Get Away Fare, Anytime Fare, or Senior Fare can benefit from purchasing EarlyBird Check-In. Priority boarding privileges are already included with the purchase of Business Select fares and are a benefit of being on the Rapid Rewards A-List. EarlyBird Check-In Customers will receive boarding positions after Business Select and A-List Customers.

Well, yes -- that would be a valid reason.

 

It's definitely better than Southwest charging you twice. Smiley Wink
