    I think I asked this before, but I want to make sure:

    If my husband and I are on the same reservation, we just have to put ONE name on the online check in (with the reservation number)?
    We don't have to do the check in twice .... once for him and once for me with the same reservation number, do we?

    I hope I don't sound tooooo dumb.:eek::eek:

    Never mind. I found where I asked this before. If we're both on the same reservation #, we only have to check in once, using either name.
    Thanks anyway.

    If you have EB you don't have to check in at all unless you want to. EB passengers are automatically checked in 36 hours before and can print their BP 24 hours before but you don't have to. You can have your boarding pass printed at the airport. NON EB people should check in at 24 hours to assure a better number. Or have it on your phone.

    If you have separate confirmations #'s you both have to check in. If only one conf #, both your names will be on it.

    100% true statement.

    but, if both on are one reservation, then one checkin does both

    Just to update. We checked in, just once with the reservation number. And it printed out two boarding passes.

    B26 & 27. Do you think we'll be able to get an aisle and window?

    Probably be able to get the aisle and window but be prepared for someone to sit in that middle seat. LOL as with my experience most flights are full up lately.

    Yeah, I'm prepared for that! Sometimes I'll switch seats half way through the flight to sit next to my husband, but I have to first make sure I wouldn't be behind someone who puts the seat back! I'd love to convince my husband to do two aisle seats, but what can I say, he has to have a window. Someone on another board asked if I married a Golden Retriever.

    I too like a window seat as it keeps me from being disturbed numerous times by persons needing bathroom breaks. ( I understand nature calling) but the last time I sat in the middle seat as wife likes the aisle seat miss window seat needed 4 bathroom breaks in a 5 1/2 hour flight. :grrr:

    Two aisle seats for wife and I----I'm the one that must get up 3-4 times from the Atl----
    After all, 2-3 coffees and a couple of vacation beverages does require a trip or more to the restroom---
    Leaving this Tuesday on an after lunch flight---might not be as active---:)
