My flight from Taiwan landed 15 minutes late. By the time I got off the plane, made it through customs, and navigated the airport to Terminal 2, I had missed my flight. Kayak/Cheap flights couldn't help me telling me to check with the airline. Alaska couldn't help because these were booked through EVA airlines. EVA wouldn't pick up the phone in their office which left me stranded. There were no flights to Portland that night. Rental cars were sold out because of the holiday. So I was stuck staying at a crappy hotel for the night on my own bill.
