I fly Alaska frequently. I have never been this dissatisfied with an airport. We had to check our bags which I have carried onto every other Alaska flight I have been on. I would have done luggage differently if I knew I had to check a bag. It would be one thing if everyone had to check cher carry one, but I saw plenty of people with larger carry one than ours and she let them through. If your going to be strict on the rules be strict with everyone. Limited electrical outlets in the waiting area. Bathrooms across from waiting area were tiny and dirty. Horrible end to a good trip.
Completely incompetent staff or just mean.
