Southwest Airlines has announced they’re making some positive changes for A-List and A-List Preferred members. Starting March 12, Southwest is now allowing those A-List and A-List Preferred members who have travel companions booked on the same reservation will all be allowed to board together.

Per Southwest Airlines,

We know getting more time with the people most important to you is everything. That’s why we’re spreading the love of one of our most-coveted A-List and A-List Preferred perks. Starting March 12, anyone on a reservation with an A-List or A-List Preferred Member can board when they do.* That means everyone on the same reservation gets to board together and pick their seat earlier.

Because we can all agree the more time you get with your people, the better.

Thanks for being a Rapid Rewards® Member. We love that you’re here and can’t wait to fly with you soon.

Terms and Conditions:  Boarding positions will be automatically reserved for you and the Passengers on your reservation 36 hours prior to the flight. You and Passengers on your reservation will still need to check in within 24 hours of scheduled departure to retrieve your boarding passes. Some restrictions apply. These restrictions include, but are not limited to, your reservation must be booked 36 hours prior to scheduled departure, and on Group Travel itineraries, priority boarding will only apply to A-List and A-List Preferred Members.
