You will NOT make this Seattle flight, with the 2 hour prior check in, likely to continue. I have driven this several times and DID make this particular flight BUT, I knew where I was going- was off the ship before 9am, (not likely on the larger ships now sailing) etc. the buses wait until they are full and stop at all the airlines, USAirways is one of the last terminals, there are also more delays at the boarder. Your other option for the same day departure is the several overnight flights. (no east coast flights between 2pm and late evening)
