Done with Alaska

We are still have the AK card but are in the process of using up our miles. Once we burn through those, it's into the shredder. One's vacation should not be based upon which day an airline will get you to your location in a single day. We like to go near the end of October so that we can enjoy Dia de los Muertos in Mexico. To do so would have caused us to spend the night in LA. So we went on 11/3, the first day AK offered a flight that would get us to Z without said sleepover. As it was, we had to take a 6-hour layover on the return trip, that turned into 8+ hours. AK said they had to find a plane to put us on. WTF? Schedule a flight but forget that you'll be needing a plane? We arrived in PDX at 5:30 in the morning. Should have just stayed over I guess. For our trouble, we received $150 in travel vouchers, but only after the missus called and bitched. The companion fare is a joke, when you count what it costs to use it, along with the yearly fee.
