Caveat: It's not 100% clear to me that these models are actually
comparable due to a number of well-known indeterminacies. Hopefully
someone who runs these models on a regular basis can comment.

Note that the mixlogit log-likelihood is much better than that of
asclogit, so the former model fits much better.

What often happens with a mixed model is that its coefficients will be
more extreme than the population-averaged ones implied by the asclogit
model. This is because the asclogit coefficients have to compromise if
there is random variation between respondents and are pulled towards 0
as a consequence due to the nonlinearity of the logit link function.
