    Between B16-B20 for my wife and me on both flights. Ugh.

    That's strange...did the script not run or something?

    Oh it ran. I got the text right away. Must be a mix of early check-in, A-list, Business Select, and the fact check-in was 8:15am and not some god awful hour of the morning.

    Wow. That's really far down the line for checking in right at the exact time. Yea must be A-List and Business Select passengers. I highly doubt that THAT many people remembered to book right at 8:15 on the dot by themselves.

    I've been spoiled by my complimentary Economy Plus subscription from United and always getting exit rows. No chance of that tomorrow!

    Script still Works.. 6:30 AM Flight. Exact Time put in Script A57 and A58. Surprised how far down. Must be the first flight in the Morning. Is there a way to use the script on your Android phone?

    TamperMonkey is available in the google play store so it should work but I haven't tested. Also try a Google search of TamperMonkey android.

    Thanks for the tip. Will try it since I won't have computer access for the return trip this weekend.

    Do like the script. Having the CP this year with a a ton of miles has us going somewhere evey 2 weeks or so.

    I've set my home computer to check us in for the return trip after getting the outbound numbers. If you do this, don't forget to adjust check in time between home time zone and where the flight leaves.

    Trevor McClellan - where in the updated script do I need to put in my phone number?

    Where in the new script do I input my phone number?

    Thanks.

    You input it on the Southwest checkin page while the script is running

    Glad to help. I'm a bit of a newbie on scripts also.

    Is the extra two seconds required for this? Just curious.

    Whenever I set it up without a 2 second delay the site occasionally gives me the "it's not time to check-in yet" error. Not always but every once in a while. I'd personally leave the 2 seconds there.

    It's a hit or miss due to variables I don't fully comprehend.

    I agree with jjangoo. I took out the 2 seconds once and it tried to check me in too early. I think I personally upped it to 5 seconds but I don't think that was needed.

    My guess is that Southwest's server time and your script time are off by a bit and the 2 second buffer patches the problem. I set my computer clock to NIST before running the script but can't set WN so I leave the buffer.

    Good to know, thanks! Saves me from some reckless experimentation o_O

    I installed the plugin, I think, successfully in Chrome and Firefox, put in the script, modified it and set it to "on" but I'm not seeing any timer panel on the left when I go to https://www.southwest.com/flight/retrieveCheckinDoc.html

    Uh... did I do it wrong?

    Does it work in current browser versions?

    Did you change the url in the script from http to https?

    Okay, I got it. I changed to the new script above this post in the thread and added @Grant none, like greasemonkey prompted me to do. Then I had to add in the https change once more, which I initially forgot to do. I don't think that @Grant non actually changed anything but the new script is necessary to change. It displays the time setting below the form, not to the left side, which is what I was originally looking for so at first I didn't see it change.

    Thanks!

    Hope not. Did it fail for you?

    I drop from A-list in 2018 and was counting on the script.

    Did you download the newest script version? The notes are:

    10/03/2017 v1.6.1 JR Hehnly (@stormchasing)
    // Got the script to a state where check-in works, but no auto-text boarding pass yet.
    // Have not determined what event listeners need to be triggered in the phone number form field.
    // Submits sucessfully if last phone number character is manually typed, but fails validation if it's only filled by the script.
    //

    Darn. Did a test and got a fail too.

    @BuddyFunJet - sorry for the delayed response. Yes, I tried it. Got the script running again (as you may recall, you bailed me out about a year ago when I tried to get it to work). Countdown works but when you get to t minus 0, it just says "checking in" and doesn't actually check you in.

    Same thing happened to me.
