Like: Crew and airport staff. seats above average. the ambiance. quick beverage service on the EWR/LAX flight.

We got bumped from Main-Select to rear of plane next to bathroom to balance load. were not compensated. were not "logged" as relocated. what if we had an emergency? And we struggled to get compensated for return flight. I had to pay for upgrade and told to call Customer Service for refund?

The relationship between Alaska airlines and Virgin American looks good on paper! However, they are two separate entities who's counters do not collaborate! Gate 31 at Newark, New Jersey had no digital display and therefore did not indicate the destination or flight number, because a nearby screen was dedicated for Alaska airlines. The Virgin American guys seem to set up a little temporary podium that did not have a microphone so the guy was yelling instructions to us and in the back it was very difficult to hear which boarding group they were accepting. At the check in counter they told me to get my seat assignment at the gate, so I went to the virgin American gate on the left and they said I needed to check in at the other counter which was Alaskan Airlines, which referred me back to the other gate. It was all very confusing. I doubt Richard Branson is aware of how poorly organized the boarding process was!
