The times make sense from a Spokane perspective. When I lived there, I knew a handful of people who flew GEG-SEA and back 2-3 times per week as they had an office in Seattle.

You shouldn’t have any issue through-checking. It meets the 12 hr baggage requirement for international.

Do both get the same number of FAs? I could be totally wrong, but for some reason I thought AS sent an extra FA on 739 equipment. Though looking at FAR 121.391, it isn't required.

Alaska is generally very good about interlining baggage on separate tickets. AS and UA have an interline agreement, so it's up to the agent at SEA to ensure that the bag is tagged properly.

I’m not sure if they’re using their own hangar or an FBO at BFI, but you might be able to make arrangements with Signature/Clay Lacy/Kenmore to have a rental car ready on arrival.

Every once in a while, the purchase of a W ticket can trigger the release of a new W fare. I have no idea why, but I have seen this happen before.

You won't be able to stand by, but you will be able to do a Same-Day Confirmed Change. This is $50 and it all it requires is 1 full-fare Y seat to be available on each flight.
