If you go to Mexico City, it is considered an International flight, and get two checked pieces of luggage for free. Agents we asked don't understant why either. We asked. Sounds like Alaska doesn't understand what international means. Just more money to line their pockets with. Service in general has really gotten worse these last 2 or 3 years.
First, it looks like the rules change have a date of May 1, 2009, not June. Second, look at the Alaska Airlines website and click on Baggage Charges and Waivers, it states very clearly to me that luggage to and from Guadalajara and Mexico City and charged the same. 1st and 2nd bag are free. If they are trying to charge you, ask them to look it up.

As far as the the changing of flight schedules, that is unfortunate they added stops to the trip. Hope you can find a different carrier to suit your needs.
Yes, the rules and policies favor the airlines unfairly. I do not dispute that.
