I got an hour early because it is a local flight to be told that I missed my flight. I did show them the text message, so they didn't know how I got it, the flight was delayed to 1:55 pm. They wanted to charge me $50 to reschedule me to the next flight at 7:58 pm, but after I insist that it is not my mistake, they waived it. I had to weight 6 hours in the air port. I was by the right departe gate, I looked at the screen couple of times to confirm that it is on time, everything was all right, until boarding time, everything changed and there were no departur... didn't hear any announcement, so I went to the customer service, to find that the gate has change!!!

He then made everyone who had lined up in general boarding line exit the line and then finally turned on the sign that said preferred boarding. Then the same thing happened again. He could have saved all of us and including himself lots of frustration if he had just made an announcement regarding the boarding process with directions when he was about to start boarding. Everyone was left without clear directions. Big let down to start my experience with Alaskan airlines."

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic because JetBlue doesn't line the groups up, so everyone loitered around standing and it was hard to figure out who was part of "group a" and boarding now (for example), or who was part of other groups waiting to be called. The person at the desk did her best to tell everyone to sit down until called (over and over) but everyone ignored her. This problem might be solved if there was a line up area like how Southwest lines up the groups ahead of time."

Maybe I did not understand him but was the only interaction that wasn't really, super excellent.

To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney.
