I got to the airport just on time I tried to print the boarding pass from the e-ticket counter it wouldn't print . I went to southwest desk and got a paper stating go to the counter by the gate for the boarding . I went through the ridiculous TSA securiy gate and barely getting the gate c10 where I talked to the agent.By the way the flight 764 was delayed to 5.15pm (and was still boarding when I got there ) and when I went to the agent he told me the plane was full there was an alternate flight going out through Houston and there may be a seat we got to the gate and we were told by the guy at the gate that it was full. So the agent tried and failed to get me a seat until the next moring at 8.10am on 11/26/07 monday. I was told to get a voucher for a discount rate at the sheraton which was issued to me cost me $41 with free shuttle for 1 night .I eventually left at 8.10am the next day but I was delayed about 14hours lost time from work 4 hours to be exact. This should have never happened Dallas is one of their major stops . I think I should a refund and reimbursement for the hotel and food and lost work time . I even called their customer relations person (Jennifer) and was told nothing they could do .
