I've never flown Southwest, but I booked a ticket for my wife and me to Las Vegas. The flight is roughly 4 hrs. I'm a person of size, and after researching Southwest's policies, I booked an extra seat. Here's my dilemma. I purchased early bird check-in for both my wife and I, which is clearly indicated when I look up our confirmation number. However, I got a separate confirmation number for my extra seat since I purchased it later, and when I look it up, it's not noted as an early-bird check-in ticket. My question is, do I need to purchase early bird check-in with the extra seat as well (and do I even need to check-in for that seat??), or will its association with my regular ticket be enough to ensure I'll be able to use it when I fly?
