Default Southwest Using Miles not Cash

So, my reservation booked on miles, says that I am not eligible to book "Early Bird." Booking on miles is new to me, has this always been the case and I have just never noticed?

Kind of a bummer since the day before I will fly back, I will be on a cruise and guess I won't be able to Check In at that time.

We have always bought early bird when booking w/ miles. You have to pay $ for the early bird, but it's always been available to us.

Are you sure you don't have an 'A' list? That was the only time I couldn't book early bird.

Agree - no reason you can't purchase early bird when booking with points.

Me too. Hoping this is some sort of a glitch and not a policy shift. I did this with some flights a few months ago, but am waiting for the next schedule release for the next round that I need to purchase.
