Don’t seat the passengers on the plane until it’s ready for take off. It’s better to to inside the airport seated than on the plane seated.

It was a very pleasant flight!

Overall very pleasant. Pilot was transparent about the delay and kept us comfortable and provided updates. Staff were so friendly, nice, and responsive. Overhead bins were full and I was able to check my bag and retrieve it as we offboarded. A colleague had formally checked her luggage and by the time she got to baggage claim it was already there. Oh, and cabin pressure was good (at least for me) throughout, too. Thanks, Alaska!

Flight back to Washington Dulles experienced quite a bit of turbulence. Fortunately the pilot exhibited consistent skill as he safely navigated us to Dulles.
