Why is it recommended to check-in a least 1 hour and 30 minutes before my departure time?
Alaska Airlines customer service ticket counter closes 40 minutes prior to departure. Passengers who have not received a boarding pass 40 minutes prior to departure may not be able to check-in or board the flight.
