AS2883 had a tray of sparking wine waiting for me when I boarded PDX-PAE Thursday night. ^

Even got a refill.

1909 LAS-SFO nothing other than the water bottles at our seats.

We were done boarding 10 minutes before our on-time pushback.

1/10 #1594 SFO to LAS: water bottle at seat; drink order taken while on ground; no PDB offered; multiple passes of the snack basket
1/12 #1905 LAS to SFO: water bottle handed out during boarding; no PDB offered;
Gate agent told me not to board right away since I'd probably get an upgrade at T-30. When I boarded for seat 1D there was no space for my bag in FC because folks hadn't stowed things properly.. Zero interest from FA in helping me, even for the required stowage of my purse.

I hope you report this to AS listens. I usually sit in Row 1 and would be angry if there was not room for me to put my bag if I didn't board first. Very frustrating as I've seen a few people indicate that baggage space in the F overheads has been full when boarding. AS needs to enforce this.
And the FA needs to be helpful for the people in the bulkheads. Even if they can't move bags, helping you to find some space at a minimum.

Generic sounding reply ..."thank you for letting us know and we hope to see you on one of our flights in the future".
After the major mess AS has had to deal with from the holidays,.......
They are probably sending out AutoReply to simple issues.

Unfortunately, that's par for the course with AS. I wouldn't expect any more. I sent Delta a note after not getting a PDB and received an apologetic phone call and 10,000 miles (I have no status with DL). There is a clear difference in customer service...
