Cancelled SJD-PDX flight

Woke up to the rude alert that my flight was cancelled. Likely because it and 2 AS flights were cancelled leaving PDX. What might be the reason for this? Also it is 3 hour hold to get reservations on the line. Options?

When they ground planes, what is the compensation if any? Just get you back to your destination. They have us overnighting at seattle airport. Not fun and costly.

If AS 1423, it's a 739, not a MAX 9.

keep receipts of the extra costs. And send to AS CUstomer care afterwards. Donít yell at sea tac agents for vouchers. You wonít get far. Just book your own arrangements and get receipts. Also your CC may also cover you too.

This was the attitude after the 2 MAX crashes in 2019 too. It might be costly and inconvenient but would you rather be on an unsafe plane?

Which makes 65 a significant number. It's also the largest plane they have so any equipment swaps with a -800 will leave you 19 seats short.

Thatís a false choice. Alaska can both fly safe aircraft and provide compensation for cancelled flights. You can be sure that Alaska will be seeking compensation from Boeing if this turns out to be their fault. There is no reason passengers should not also be compensated.

Im not saying travelers or Alaska donít deserve compensation Iím just saying that minor inconveniences like a costly hotel or a long overnight are minor blips compared to being sucked out of a plane or hurtled into the ground at 600mph

Is anyone else constantly watching their trips to monitor for changes? I am hoping Boeing companies up and helps provide AS with needed compensation. In my opinion AS has proved to be very responsible in every way except their pride in an all Boeing fleet. Now perhaps Boeing might offer AS some free rentals of non-Max planes they have in their personal fleet. This is on them.

You are assuming it's a Boeing issue and not an AS maintenance issue. A little too early for this conclusion, no?

That being said even it turns out to be an AS issue, Boeing won't throw a loyal Boeing customer under the bus.

I mean, yes, Iíd rather be inconvenienced than be sucked out of an airplane at altitude. But your response implies that it is inappropriate to think about compensation in response to this particular cancelation. You can bet that Alaskaís lawyers are already working on how they will get compensation from Boeing for this same cancelation.
