I miss flights pretty frequently, and I haven't had great luck being accommodated by AS in these types of situations.

Before I had AS status, I was always charged the SDC fee to move onto a later flight (same day) if I missed my flight. Both before & after getting status, I've always been charged the fare difference to move to the next day when I miss a 1x daily flight.

I have not ever missed the last flight of the day, but I imagine it would be treated similar to missing a 1x daily flight (i.e. passenger pays the fare difference).

If you want more reassurance that you'll be taken care of in the case of a delay, I'd recommend flying UA - IME they're much more flexible with flat tire situations, and their SDC allows you to switch your departure to the next day by written policy.
