Post: The Southwest Formula
I have flown Southwest numerous times and really like flying with them. I check in online 24 hours in advance ( you can pay $12.50 extra to be able to check in 36 hours ahead of time) and usually end up in the A50-60 range. From what I understand, they also save the first 15-20 numbers for frequent business travelers so even if you have the number 54, you may not have 53 people in front of you because some of those spots go unfilled.
