Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "I always love flying Alaska Airlines. Great crew, service, comfortable flights."
Cons: "These flights are always cold. Not sure anything can be done but dress warm if you are flying to outlying areas in Alaska"
Pros: "Crew. Light hearted and didn’t take herself too seriously."
Pros: "Have to fly first class to get a meal. That’s a bit excessive."
Cons: "For a first class seat it didn’t recline very well. Had to mash the hell out of button and force back a bit. Not exactly a first class flight. Entertainment hand held had dead battery. Still not exactly first class."
Pros: "It makes the trip to Kenai three hours shorter."
Cons: "Cancelled way too much. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The twenty minute flight saves three hours"
Cons: "Sometimes cancelled due to fog. Usually uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Comfy seats, sweet flight attendant, and smooth flight."
Cons: "All was good :)"
Pros: "The in-flight cookie was awesome! Megan was a fantastic flight attendant!"
Cons: "Flight was an hour behind schedule...but that sometimes happens when you fly!"
Cons: "It's a twenty minute puddle jumper. The seat belt seemed to be missing about half of it... Not sure what was going on there, never saw a short seat belt like that before. Flight seemed late, almost missed the connection with Alaska Air to Honolulu. Had to go through TSA again, walked up to the gate and was last one on the aircraft. They had just called my name at Alaska air."
Pros: "Quick, uncrowded and friendly."
Pros: "Hospitable service, free snacks!"
Pros: "Small plane, good service, polite Staff. No complaints."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing."
Cons: "I carried on my electric guitar and a hard shell case and it was problematic because it did not fit in the overhead bin nor was there a closet that it could be stowed in. This was an issue for me as I like to keep track of it personally because some of my instruments are very expensive."
Pros: "we were on three different planes and our luggage was waiting for us at the final destination.Plane had good leg room but lacked shoulder room."
Pros: "Prompt and very professional"
Pros: "The flight was fine,no problems occurred. Food consisted of a cookie and a drink which was fine for a short flight."
Pros: "Flight left on time and got in early. I don't ask for more!"
Cons: "Your pretzels suck!!"
Pros: "I love how fast this flight this is. They make boarding and checking in so easy."
Pros: "Alaska crew is so much better than the others. We will always fly with Alaska Airlines whenever possible!"
"The Turkey wrap was not that good. I sure like the Turkey Sandwich better."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. The food was very good. We pre-ordered a cheese plate and a wrap. A few weeks before our trip, Alaska Air changed the flight times, and we decided the connection time was too tight and so changed to a later connection. The agent we talked to about the change was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. It's a good airline, typically rated as the best or second-best of the US airlines. As far as we can tell, its high rating is accurate."
Cons: "We originally had chosen our flight from Boston to Seattle to connect with our flight from Seattle to Sitka with an hour and ten minutes between them. However, Alaska Air changed the schedules of both flights, leaving only 45 minutes between flights. That is barely enough time to connect (the flights left from different terminals) if there are no delays. We thus had to change our plans not long before our departure to another flight to Sitka that left 5 hours later, forcing us to kill a lot of time in the boring Seatac airport. Apparently Alaska Air is notorious for changing its flight schedules. Travelers should keep that in mind when arranging flights and try to choose first flights that arrive soon enough that several alternative connecting flights are possible if Alaska Air changes the flight times."
Cons: "My bag was lost, but I think that was more of an American Airlines issue than a Alaska one."
Pros: "FA moved me to a better seat after seeing me stuffed between 2 other large individuals. Very considerate!"
Pros: "The crew was professional in every way,"
Cons: "There were a couple of individuals with oversized carry-ons that held up boarding as they tried repeatedly to get the carry-ons into the overhead bins. Utilizing a carry-on sizing tool in the gate area would have identified these two oversized carry-ons PRIOR to boarding and could have kept everyone safer. Instead, passengers behind the offenders were waiting while the bags were opened, items removed, and another attempt made at stuffing them into the overhead bins, all while passengers already seated were subjected to even more compromised social distancing in enclosed spaces."
Cons: "First class seat broken. Didn’t recline. Crackers not food. $20 for Internet that’s constantly buffering??? Junk money grubbing company."
Cons: "No food and seats broken 1st class leg and upgraded seating. I paid extra for broken seats that won’t recline on Alaska ar."
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early and the pilot took us over the mountains so we had an excellent view"
Pros: "IT was ok, for a 45 flight"
Cons: "The crew was so rude!!!!!!"
Pros: "Great crew and smooth landing"
Cons: "Nothing all was well"
Pros: "Good crew on this leg. While not always the case, they left the lights off for the entire flight and only had them dimly on when doing their final checks. It was also nice that everybody was handed water bottles that wanted one."
Cons: "Alaska Airlines doesn't have seatback screens and only limited beverage selections on these shuttle flights."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Very convenient layover switch at airport."
Cons: "Little personal space in seating. No video monitors— need to use own cellphone to view videos. Need to pre-order meals if you want them."
Pros: "Crew was kind, friendly and funny. Gogo inflight entertainment was great, and made the trip go by faster."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Cons: "I was in the middle seat between two heavy ladies . I had no room to move. They lost my sis in laws luggage"
Pros: "Even a short period of travel they are helpful and entertaining people"
Cons: "I just don’t like giving only a 1 pc of biscuit and a 1cup of soda or drinks for almost 6 hrs of travel. At least they must give a 1meal dinner or lunch and or breakfast"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight due to turbulence. Hard seats. Majority of passengers checked in baggage were taken off in Honolulu before take off and did not make it to Anchorage."
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful people. Very quick, smooth flight. Loved flying over the snow covered mountains."
Pros: "I didnt die."
Cons: "That they fed me cookies all day. Better tasting water. Variety of free snacks."
Cons: "Comfort? You have to pay for leg room. Otherwise your knees are in the back of the seat in front of you. Food? What food? They offered trail mix. You have to buy the cheese platter. After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death?"
Cons: "On the leg from Seattle to Anchorage there was a significant time delay due to a “medical situation” I suspect a young female passenger had a few to many drinks and puked all over the back of the plane prior to take off. It happens and is really no ones fault but her own. I guess being the smug person I am I would like to see Alaska be compensated by the young lady"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Didn't utilize food or entertainment"
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "I thought I had reserved an aisle seat but I was in the middle when I boarded."
Pros: "Overall a great experience"
Pros: "my flight was from fairbanks to seattle and then to orlando. i was very comfortable and the attendants were caring when someone felt ill. not a medical emergency just a woman who felt odd."
Cons: "the on board thing to do with the tablet didnt work. when we landed in seattle i asked the customer service booth for help and they ould not offer any suggestions except to rent thier equipment"
Pros: "gate agents and crew nice. leg room good"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Pros: "The lavatory was clean."
Cons: "They changed my seats without telling me, even the day before my itinerary said I was in the first row of First Class by the window with my partner's seat right beside me and they switched it because of some policy that forbids dogs yet couldn't let me know that in July when I booked this and spoke to a representative on the phone to confirm I was even allowed to bring a dog on board. And even then they made me feel like it was not possible and had to stow my dog below in cargo because only one dog could be in the First Class section, and again I was never told that in that moment I couldn't have my dog in the first row. Also, the representative was very clear I had to have a health certificate for my dog to fly and not only did that cost me a large deal of money and time at the veterinarian's office, but no one ever even inquired to see it. I wasted time and money for no reason other than the incompetence exhibited by Alaskan Airlines, and it's surprising to have such consistent subpar service. Especially when you're paying for First Class. Also, your food on flight had several allergens in them. Even your choice of cookie for passengers had two different types of soy. This is a common food allergy. Needless to say, I'll be flying with another airline for my trips to Alaska, as this is not my only one planned."
Pros: "In my flight form ANC to FAI the check in was seemless. I was given a bag for my car seat. I was able to check my pack n play no issues. Checking my bag"
Cons: "My flight back my cab driver was late. I got there at 530 first of all the baggage drop lady was rude and looked me up and down before choosing to talk to me. I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."
Pros: "On time and can check in at least two bags each passenger !"
Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."
Pros: "the seats were much more comfortable and the fans worked. I had a way better flight."
Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "Flying with my husband and daughter. All of our seats were split apart even after calling to fix the issue. When I went up to the counter, the lady told me too bad, she couldn't ask someone in an isle seat to switch, but I could do it myself if I wanted. My daughter is 2, can't exactly sit by herself. Food service didn't begin until almost 2 hours into a 3 hour flight but it was in no way due to turbulence. After food service, no trash service came around until about a half hour before landing. Slowest moving crew I have ever seen in my life. Also, the bathrooms were beyond disgusting. I will never fly Alaska again."
Pros: "The beer."
Cons: "No blankets."
Pros: "I appreciated the checking in process with Akemi. She made it seamless! Thank you!"
Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."
Pros: "It was a beautiful flight. Everyone was kind and accomodating."
Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. Interior of the cabin was dirty. There was hair and stains on the tray table. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and then postponed to 3 hours later but at least they reaccommodated the passengers as good as they could."
Pros: "They were very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "That you have to purchase entertainment on a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "25 minutes late due to having to wait for galley to be stocked. Left the ramp and sat another 15 minutes on the tarmac. Never happened to me on Delta."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. The flight arrived early and that was great."
Cons: "It was a bit overcrowded and the internet was a bit spotty"
Cons: "Plane was full!"
Pros: "Crew was great. I had almost the first half of the airplane to myself and got to lay down as my flight was 1230 midnight"
Pros: "Most uncomfortable plane that I've ever been on"
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Would've like more entertainment options, like screens at each seat or plug outlets"
Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "no crew to unload plane, ended up sitting on runway for 1 hour + at RDU, at 1:00 AM"
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Pros: "Delightful crew."
Cons: "Decent dinner in business class, but pretty awful breakfast omelette. I didn’t figure out what should have been complete adjustability of seats, & crew could not help,"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Pros: "flights delayed overall"
Cons: "service. flights were delayed and they said there was nothing they could do"
Pros: "On time. Didn't have to wait that long for luggages to come out.."
Cons: "Flight attendant in United just standing idly, doesn't help you with carryons. No free meal for connecting flights with United even though it's meal time unlike when you are in one airlinr all through your international flight."
Pros: "Landed early, decent price"
Cons: "Not allowed to bring on carry on in basic economy which was not obvious at booking, seats very tight and little legroom"
Pros: "Airplane was clean and the staff was very welcoming."
Cons: "One staff member seemed upset when she i handed her my agricultural form, as if I were a bother. Wish there was actually screens to watch t.v. but I hear there was now tablet rentals so that's a new plus."
Pros: "Smooth process from checking in, to ,boarding, to arrival."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "The front desk was able to change our seats so that my husband and I were able to sit together and we were very appreciative for this."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable, too long and they were unable to provide meals and ran out of plastic cups."
Pros: "Left on time."
Pros: "Nice spacious quick flight."
Cons: "No free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "I'm 73. Delayed an hour from SLC for no apparent reason meant racing like crazy with 5 mins to make my connection. I'm in good shape for my age but I'm 73! I was the last one to board and barely made it. Very stressful"
Cons: "Crew was friendly but let's face it, I didn't expect much from united and their recent antics publicly"
Pros: "On schedule"
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Cons: "My flight was delayed over 4 hours. Pilots kept us in the plane before take off for an hour. They barely informed us even when we were experiencing turbulence and flight attendants were not very attentive to us during the flight."
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Pros: "Staff were lovely"
Cons: "Food was Terrible, couldn't eat the veg option and the TVs kept freezing"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Cons: "Being packed into the seats like sardines, not nearly enough leg room and even when reclined the chair sits too up right. When the seat in front of me leans back, I can't even lay my head down on the tray table because the space is too small for me to bend forward. So I'm forced to sit up right on two long flights, the first didn't even have in-flight entertainment. I can't imagine someone bigger than me (5'4" 150 lbs) being able to even reach the floor if something was dropped."
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"
Cons: "Did not like the commuter ride from newark to syracuse. Probably would not use united again because of that. Had to get on a bus that took us across the street to board this little, very noisy plane. Even the flight to newark was uncomfortable. Seats are too close no legroom and my back was killing me due to uncomfortable small seats. United is not for me. Sorry."
Pros: "Nothing good at all"
Pros: "I liked the movies on the seat."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay because they didn't know how to manage the weight of the plane. We waited 2 hours on the plane to take off, and ended up missing our next flight"
Cons: "I am only 5 ft tall & petite but felt like a sardine with my knees hitting the seat in front. The overhead bins were so small that they couldn't fit carry ons efficiently so everyone was scrambling for space, delaying the boarding process & heightening frustration & stress. Boarding process was also inefficient causing delays."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly. Jumped at any and all requests. Always looking for ways to assist all flyers. Boarding was quick and easy. Plane was on time, boarded quickly, AC worked perfectly, plenty of blankets and food was spectacular. Crew made the 6 hour flight feel like an hour of comfort."
Cons: "No wifi because we traveled through Canada, and the tv was no working"
Pros: "I liked the friendly smiles everywhere. I was lucky to score a window seat with no one in the middle."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay $25 to check one bag and the Wi-fi didn't work all flight."
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "Great price flight was delayed but we still made good timing"
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
