Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "We were delayed for nearly 4 hours and were stuck on the plane while being lied to telling us “we’re up next to get de-iced then we can take off” then one hour goes by and the same announcement. Will never fly Alaskan again."
Pros: "On time departing and landing."
Pros: "Great staff - fun and casual . - price was great"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and the crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "no chargers"
Pros: "Staff and crew were very friendly and accommodating. Flight was good and on time."
Cons: "I had arrived from Ft. McMurray more than 3 hours before my connection, but was was paged for a search just 30 minutes before my flight boarded. Delays in security meeting me almost made me miss my flight. I didn't understand why they waited so long to do the search. It should have been done when I first got there."
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Makes sense to board back of plane first"
Cons: "I was offered water, wine or orange juice but told there wasn't time to offer full beverage options because the flight wasn't long enough. Though the cart was fully stocked. How could it take more time to pour ginger ale than water? Made no sense."
Pros: "It was great"
Pros: "The attindent kept people seated till we stopped"
Cons: "The seats wouldn't recline."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Flight was smooth and on time. Didn't purchase food or entertainment. Ate prior to the flight. Seats are very cramped in coach area. I'm not a big person but the guy beside me was and spilled over into my space. Uncomfortable! Upgraded to first class for the next leg of my trip."
Pros: "The cheese plate was excellent. Sat in exit row seating so plenty of room."
Cons: "Couldn't check my bags early even though all of the news outlets said to arrive early due to long lines at TSA."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The fans were hardly blowing air so the first few hours of the flight were very very hot and uncomfortable"
Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"
Cons: "No window in the window seat! Just a blank panel. Severely disappointed."
Pros: "Very few people on flight. Lots of room."
Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."
Pros: "The overhead storage is nifty. The seats were comfortable and crew was friendly."
Cons: "This in flight wifi you pay for in lieu of free entertainment was a disappointment. I'm glad I brought my own stuff for my kids to do. You have to have your own device or you rent theirs, feels a little nickel and dimed. The cost of the food was high for what you get also."
Pros: "Terminal and flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Great flight with Alaskan Airlines as always."
Cons: "No free movies or any other free forms of entertainment despite a long cross country flight. One of the male crew members - don't know his name - was rather rude and would only allow me to have one cup of water and no coffee despite my having purchased a cheese platter."
Pros: "On time, great price, friendly staff, short flight, biscoff cookies"
Cons: "Every other traveler in the airport. But that has nothing to do with Alaska airlines so.. Nothing, they were great."
Pros: "loved the usb/power outlet"
Cons: "passengers seated in the back of the plane need to be loaded 1st."
Pros: "The crew members were sweet."
Cons: "Didn't like how old the plane was, nor how the seats were smashed all together with no room."

Cons: "seats too old;"
Pros: "On time arrival. Decent entertainment options. Good food (cheese and fruit platter is awesome)"

Pros: "Upgraded my seat and loved it . Crew we're professional ."
Pros: "I'm not a seasoned flyer and everyone was very helpful!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I was moving from California to Washington and had four checked bags. The check in lady didn't charge me for the fourth bag and moved me on to an earlier flight! On the plane, the service was excellent. They even have me cookies when they were serving pretzels for free."
Cons: "Absolutely perfect flight."
Pros: "Free wine"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly kind and patient when we were working to install our car seat on the plane."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane so space was a bit of an issue, however 2 main complaints: 1) no wifi in the air (althought my next Alaska flight, on a larger plane, did have free wifi) and 2) no shades for the window - this is a must when you have children on board - if you want kids to sleep instead of screaming the whole flight this would be very useful."
Pros: "Cheap upgrade to first. not the best first, however."
Cons: "Grouchy crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed initially on the taxiway out of Fairbanks because of snow. We waited for DOT to plow the runway, which I believe is an airport failure. However, while waiting, the pilot mentioned that he hoped we wouldn't have to go back to the terminal to get enough fuel to make it to Seattle. Not something you want to hear. We did have to go back to the terminal for more fuel. Why did we board only to sit in an uncomfortable seat an extra 2 hours. Now we are heading to Seattle. Alaska Airlines knows that they have a plane load of people that are 2 hours late. I asked the flight attendant about the situation. They apologized but offered no help. No airline initiated attempt to repair missed connections was made. In fact, a friend walked up to his connection gate 4 minutes after the push-off time, and they didn't hold the flight for him even though they knew that our flight would be only minutes late. While still on our delayed flight, I tried via the the Alaska Airlines app to make a connection via standby, but the app didn't allow it. I had missed my connection by nearly 2 hours. When I called and tried to get a new connection, the phone agent told me that they could get me on the 8:30 connection. I thought, "Hey, that's great." I asked the flight attendant if they could let the tight connections out first. They apologized but did nothing. When I finally got off the flight and checked the departures board for the gate, I didn't see the new 8:30 flight number. I asked the nearest Alaska gate agent, and they sent me to a gate. The destination at that gate was correct, but the wrong flight number. I asked the agent there, and they told me that my flight was for 8:30 p.m., not a.m. The telephone agent set me up and dumped me for a 12 hour layover while letting me think it was an immediate connection. When I tried to change that at that gate, the agent there got me on standby for connection through Portland, my original route. They wouldn't give me a guarantee out of Portland however until around 8 p.m. I went to the first standby gate and related this story. The agent there, Mihee, got on the system. She took the time to research all routes. She got me a guaranteed spot on a direct flight early that afternoon to my final destination. Probably shouldn't mention names here, but Mihee was fantastic."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Changed gate, very late."
Pros: "Everything went smooth, it was a short trip. I would fly Alaska Airlines again"
Cons: "Flight to SEA/TAC had USB outlets but the flight back to SAC didn't"
Cons: "The seats are too close, not enough leg room.."
Cons: "Nothing. All good"
Pros: "Generally everything. It was a nice flight for my first time being on a 747 series plane. I've only been on a twin prop. It was smooth from take off to landing. Loved being up in the air."
Cons: "2 hour wait to take off, movie skipping issue. Wish the seats reclined one more inch. Not your fault."

Pros: "Very on time flight. Not strict with baggage."
Pros: "Phone chargers! Best idea ever"
Cons: "When the flight attendants came thru with dinner offers I was not offered a dinner. When they came thru with drinks I said yes but I also wanted a dinner but wss not offered one. The attendant was very hostile and said well there are a lot of you and only a few of us. We're gonna miss some people. What do you want I can get it. But it wasn't a friendly offer, it sounded more resentful. This was an almost 6 hour flight. Later when they went thru again to offer snacks they made a big production to ask me loudly if I wanted one. Even opening her eyes very widely and saying are you sure? I could tell it was because I had complained earlier. But I didn't even really complain. I just said I didn't get offered a meal, on an almost 6 hour flight, and I wanted one."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Great service as always."
Cons: "The boarding area in Cancun didn't have the normal Alaska boarding screens showing what groups they are boarding."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and very clear about masks."

Cons: "It was a good expiriance traveling with delta!"
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Pros: "I like being able to charge my devices"
Cons: "Better movies"
Pros: "That there were TVs on the seats to watch and it was quick boarding"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"

Pros: "Breakfast was quite good, rest of the food was maximum average like on the other Delta flights I flew on this travel."

Pros: "Seat 2G Orderly boarding and plane clean"
Cons: "Asked to have all the food (appetizer, main course, etc) served together , as they advertise, but was told that service wasn't available. Ordered dinner, was almost as tasty as a Stouffers meal (it was some type of glop of lamb). 7 hours into flight the menu advertised a warm chocolate chip cookie, asked for one was told they THOUGHT they were out, came back about an hour later said the found one, but it wasn't warm, so I passed (not a real fan of eating food they found) About 8 hours into flight , the attendant said out of the blue that they were sorry about not providing the meal all together as requested, but that the other attendant didn't know they offered that service."
Pros: "Everything was great from boarding to landing."
Pros: "Didn’t load my bag at point of departure"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Flight was faster than expected, comfy seats, check in was fast and easy."
Pros: "Above feedback is for the MSP to GEG flight"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "We were delayed due to the air conditioning not working. So, it was a tad warm in the cabin. It would've been nice to have someone coming around with water making our delay a little more comfortable."
Pros: "Whole thing was easy, plane was nicely updated on the interior"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "For once the food was good"

Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"
Cons: "Lay over"
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Cons: "Never again!"
Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning."
Pros: "We were stuck for an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Cons: "We were stuck for an hour and a half on the tarmac"
Pros: "Got delayed due to the computer shutdown"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Cons: "My seating. Location. We checked in 22 hrs before the flight and received C4 c5"
Pros: "All went well"
Pros: "Relatively painless."
Cons: "I do not like the seating and the need to be on a regional jet for more than an hour. Delta should think about passenger comfort when they consider their bottom line. You'll lose me as a customer."
Pros: "Smooth flight, fairly comfortable seats in economy with adequate legroom (and I have long legs), flight attendants actually smile and are polite."
Cons: "I was not on this flight as a mistake was made by either Kayak or WestJet. I was not refunded my money which I think is unfair."
Cons: "Flight experience was the way air travel use to be."
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Cons: "Seat assignments. My husband and I were not assigned seats together, however we were able to sit together because the seat next to me was empty."
Pros: "The dreamliner is an amazing plane. I really liked the window tinting feature it has."
Cons: "flight was delayed 2 hours, could have been some better communication on the delay"
Cons: "Wonderful service in Premium."
Pros: "Good food choices well prepared(even roll& breakfast croissant were excellent) An outstanding premium economy experience n stark contrast to Air France and other NA Carriers. Good wine list great service. Nice service touches like linen for table tops"
Cons: "Amenities on Asian carriers are more"
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Crew were nice, everything was on time."
Cons: "Need to use your own device to watch entertainment. No screens."
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Pros: "Price is great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "The food was extremely mediocre for an $18 meal."
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "Food vouchers in Calgary for the 6 hour flight delay due to WesJet computer issues on Toronto plane. $100 credit Bag pick up Minmico at WS Care Centre tried hard to arrange a seat on an earlier flight due to my inquiry; let me call home twice on her phone to advise husband of flight changes. She tried to organize my bag to be put on the earlier flight at the last minute although she was unsuccessful."
Cons: "Passengers are crammed into small seats."
Cons: "Boarding was not enforced by zones. When people line up it is better staff announce zones and force people to not get in line"
Pros: "At least they flown us back home.."
Cons: "Our flight to Toronto delayed by almost 3 hours and this was updated only 20 minutes before boarding, staff at checkin counter giving senseless excuses for the delay like crew members yet to come,weighing and balancing the baggage for fuel upload and even funny thing that captain just started his paper work for departure ( this is 2 hours after scheduled departure ). Did not offer any food coupons or any kind of compensation to anybody which created lot of inconvenience for travelers with young children..show some empathy Westjetters and operate like a professional carrier not like a curb side cab driver.."
Pros: "Did not expect anything but it was actually good and pleasant."
Pros: "The plane was one of their most recent to their fleet of planes. Lots of overhead luggage space and extra leg room. Nice looking on the inside"
Cons: "I like the overall feel to the inside."
Pros: "The luggage was taken good care of"
Cons: "There wasn’t any complimentary gluten free snacks :3"
Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"
Pros: "Westjet is a good carrier with good equipment , friendly, and on time or early"
Cons: "After paying for an upgrade on seating, I found a dog as my neighbour. I am allergic to dogs but was told to sit down and when plane was full I may find another seat. I sat in my original seat in 14F for the trip so the $60.00 upgrade was wasted and told it is not refundable"
Pros: "Great staff and spacious plane"
Pros: "Great staff. Fast boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "unfair airport taxes...we really get screwed by our government"
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "Big 4 hour delay caused that we missed another flight in London"
Cons: "Small plane but I know it’s supply and demand"
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Cons: "Let me see, waited over an hour for a flight to catch up from Ottawa. Now flight to Vancouver over an hour late, gets in about 10 minutes before flight to Hong Kong leaves. So they say will wait for us as flight not full. Nope, flight leaves without 7 of us. Got the " don't know what happened" look. So they give us a $60 dollar food voucher, and take us to hotel because now must wait 12 hours for next flight. Tell us to be in lobby at a certain time to catch shuttle back to airport. Time comes, sorry no room, and buggers off. They call taxis, when drivers find drive for vouchers, tell us to load own baggage! Not likely to fly West Jet again."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Pros: "Helpful polite staff. Many great movies and tv shows to select from."
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an uncomfortable, small, non reclining seat."
Pros: "mostly everything that an airline can offer is always on par !"
Cons: "seat sealction - I've booked in advice but seat selection is always a headache. I prefer to have front seats (closes to front in econly class, emergency area) but I got stuck all the way in the back by the washrooms. It would be amazing if on my way back to Calgary I can have a better option?"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight on WestJet."
Cons: "I did not like Kayak, and will not use them again."
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "they left late"
Pros: "The service was okay and departed on time."
Cons: "I didnt like not having entretainment (no TV or free wifi). Meals not included on economy class."
Pros: "Cabin crew in first-class very helpful and kind. Cabin manager came and thanked me personally which was nice touch. Great service."
Pros: "Staff, cleanliness, boarding, check in"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment available"
Pros: "Staff friendly, flight on time"
Cons: "in flight service consisted of crackers and water. No entertainment other than westjet magazine."
Cons: "I did not like how the flight was not full and I paid nearly $800 for it and I was informed that that was at a "discounted rate". there was literally just over 30 guests on the flight. Also, when I initially called to change my booking I was greeted by the most unprofessional and disrespectful representative of WestJet. It wasn't until my third call that I reached someone willing to help me change my flight reservation and she was extremely happy to do so."
Cons: "Would have preferred to be offered ear plugs for the engine noise."
Pros: "Again the crew was friendly and understanding."
Cons: "Parents of a two year old had absolutely zero control of their child. It was hard to watch as they were the seat in front of me. The people that were beside me asked to be moved to the back of the plane. They also had no diapers."
Pros: "Flight was fine, flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "They would not allow me to gate check my guitar. Insisted on sending it as oversize/fragile baggage and assured me that it would be carefully handled and loaded up through an elevator to a special pickup place. I did NOT like the prospect of dashing from one place to another to retrieve both my suitcase and my guitar. (I am a working musician). Upon arrival, I was advised to go to an elevator on the south side of the building, and attendants would help me. No attendants, nothing. Went to an information booth, and they said "oh no, you need to go to the special American Airlines luggage office [at the far other end of the building] and they will have it." Ran down there....nope, no guitar. They said "oh no, you need to go to this elevator on the north side at the other end of the building." Tore down there....no guitar, nothing. Got the attention of an attendant who said he would ride the elevator down and look for it. I was beyond frustrated and worried. Just then, another attendant called out "oh, a guitar just came out on the carousel!" Yes, the regular luggage carousel, which meant that it had been thrown onto a cart and bounced across the tarmac and tossed onto the conveyor belt like a suitcase, which is EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAID THEY WOULD NOT DO. It managed to survive, but I cringe at the thought of flying with them again."
Pros: "They staff was nice and it was a direct flight."
Cons: "The floor board was literally freezing (a man using the vents to cool his wine bottle). Many voiced their concerns and attendants were responsive, but it never got fixed. Perhaps a plane operation issue. So I was uncomfortable the entire flight along with everyone around me. When asked if they had a blanket to use, the only option was to purchase. Again, not any of the attendants problems - they were respectful. It seems like more of a company issue perhaps."
Pros: "Very organized when it comes to checking in and boarding the flight. Very friendly flight attendants, who ensure everyone has a great flight. Customer service is Excellent."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Very nice."
Cons: "Luggage wait time"
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "It took a while day to get our bags after they decided to put it on the next flight"
Pros: "Lovely service, but less comfortable plane... nothing terrible though"
Cons: "This agent spent 30+ min to check us in through a connection flight to Seattle. He couldn't find my wife's reservation, when it should be in the same reservation as me. He tried 5 times, and still failed. Later we found out at the gate that he was using the wrong name (same last name, different first name). Luckily the American Airline agent at the gate was more than competent and efficient to correct the issue in 5 min."
Cons: "The worst flight attendant I have ever seen."
Pros: "Nothing. Someday the airline industry will be disrupted and we'll all remember this and say, "can you believe what we used to put up with, and how expensive it was?!""
Cons: "No decent food available, they ran out. People allowed to play movies loudly with no headphones for 5 hours straight. Uncomfortable seats with no cushioning."
Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
Cons: "close it!"
Pros: "It was not a full flight, so I was given an aisle instead of a middle seat...for which I was grateful."
Cons: "Flight was 6 hours...almost as much as my previous international flight, yet food and drink was only available for purchase. No entertainment options. Plus, wireless was $21! I needed to work and had to purchase, but that is really quite a rip off compared to other airlines."
Cons: "My luggage was damaged and I have yet to hear from an American Airlines representative after I was not ok with a replacement from a luggage company that did not reflect my current luggage brand. Being in the Customer Sevice industry I know this is unacceptable, I would never replace a damaged item with one that was not like the original or ask a customer to do so. I will not fly American Airlines any longer."
Pros: "This flight was amazing! The crew was friendly and helped me when I had a panic attack from flying. It was very appreciated"
Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to power up digital devices"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "Friendly and willing cabin crew, on time, clear skies and no turbulence, relatively quiet, good leg room"
Cons: "Food not tasty, meat tough and dry..no one around us ate it. Dessert was o.k."
Pros: "It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured."
Pros: "Entertainment system is good."
Cons: "Flight was over crowded with baggage. Some people were allowed to board with 3 cabin bags and others weren't allowed to bring any on board."
Pros: "Other than a 2 hour delay due to a mechanical issue (identified after everyone boarded) the flight was ok. No electical connections for equipment. That would be an improvement. Also, out of a lot of meals that people request, and that was at the beginning of service in the premium seats."
Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."
Pros: "He enjoyed everything about the flight it was comfortable the crew was excellent he met nice ppl thank you for the safety and class."
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "Bad as above"
Cons: "I asked the woman at the gate prior to boarding if there were electrical outlets on the plane. She looked it up and said, its an Airbus, yes they have outlets at each seat. I didn't worry too much about charging my devices at my layover because I knew I could charge them on the plane. When I got on it was clear that there was no outlets, no video on the backs of seats, no devices being handed out for purchase. Nothing. I'm definitely used to more updated planes, but I would have been ok without the misinformation. I ended up on a 4 hr flight bored out of my gourd—which could have been avoided."
Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."
Cons: "Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again."
Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"
Pros: "The service was okay, they were polite."
Cons: "The plane took forever to load, the plane departed late, although the captain still claimed we would make it 10 minutes early we did not. And to top it off, we waited on the tarmac to find a gate because we were late. Thanks American, I appreciate the reminder as to why I never fly your airline."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "In-seat entertainment options. Good system, easy to use, lots of good options. Why couldn't you have had this on our flight from Europe?"
Cons: "The almost 30 minute wait on the tarmac AFTER we landed to find a free gate. Did you not know we were coming???? The last thing we needed after a very long day of flying."
Pros: "There was movie available"
Cons: "-There were no Blankets for coach even though I wasn't feeling good at all."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "We boarded an hour early. It was at least 80° on the plane, and then everyone got on. The crew was very rude. They ignored everyone in coach."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "Had good bathroom access and place to stand in the back galley so you could exercise and stretch as this was a connecting flight and I had been in the air a long time."
Cons: "The older woman stewardess was rude. I tried to give her my papers and she ignored me. So I put them in the pocket and the man next to me saw what happened and she responded to him. Curt. The plane is old and no individual TV. The food choices were very limited. I felt like cattle rather than a relaxing flight. Flying use to be fun and exciting and part of a great trip. Now it is endured to get on a trip."
Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"
Pros: "I loved how sweet the crew was. I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "The seat was completely uncomfortable. My feet are swollen and my back hurts still."
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "Great service. Lots of legroom"
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."
Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was luxurious and comfortable, even in coach. Great flight."
Cons: "They must have switched my gate four or five times and delayed my flight a whole hour"
Cons: "Flight was about 20 mins late"
Cons: "Out of certain food items that should have been available"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed twice. We got to Seattle three hours later than we were supposed to."
Cons: "WiFi connection and thereby any information and entertainment did not work. Long wait for luggage."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Pros: "Extra legroom but I paid for that"
Cons: "Not getting the meal I prepaid for and the curtain of business class constantly hitting me it was not good."
Pros: "Pretty smooth flight overall. That being said, I don’t mean nd turbulence, the air pockets really get to me. Great service though"
Cons: "5h travel at noon, no meal, this is a bit cheap."

Cons: "Flight was delays from anotjer air company i had to paid 160$ to get on the next one.."
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."
Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."
Cons: "For the price, the length and the fact that it was an international flight. I would have expected not to be required to paid for luggage and to have some food been provided to us. In particular, after the return flight was delayed considerably due to airplane issues."
Pros: "Comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "Baggage fees and no snacks."
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "All the flights left late. Not enough room for carry on luggage. No free booze on International flight"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."

Cons: "I missed the flight"
Cons: "No breakfast offered for a four hour flight"
Pros: "The crew was inviting, helpful, and very kind."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work. No WIFI on the plane (which was, admittedly disclosed upon ticket purchase, so it was no fault of air canada). Chairs were very uncomfortable and the individual in front of me reclined fully for the entire trip."
Cons: "My flight and itinerary was cancelled due to the booking staff i planned my travel arrangements for to Mexico. They cancelled the round trip flights i had departing from vancouver to mexico and back so i never was able to use this flight to Vancouver and now will just have a credit there until used. can provide a better rating once i am able to use the flight."
Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."
Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and would not allow me to board even though I had booked my ticket months in advance."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "The loading was better organized then in the past, so smoother; not as chaotic."
Cons: "No amenities offered other than a free thimble of something to drink. I'm waiting for them to charge for breathable air."
Pros: "Flight was on time. The landing was smooth, not bumpy."
Pros: "Air Canada front desk people were wonderful and helpful."
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "The plane was very old and delayed for too long. Way overpriced air fares."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Was able to move from my assigned centre of row seat to an aisle seat, which however was I'm the last row outside the toilets. Checked bag came quickly in Seattle. Descent was gradual enough, or something, that my ears, which normally hurt excruciatingly from about 20,00-10,000 feet, barely bothered me."
Cons: "Check in, customs, etc in Toronto was a series of long long lines that took nearly 1.5 hours (not AC's fault but an unpleasant aspect of the trip). Plane was full and very cramped, impossible to get up and walk. The tv monitors on my side/half of the plane conked out midway through flight."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "Some staff were very personable and some were the opposite."
Cons: "Staff needed assistance in folding stroller - whereas this has never been a concern on porter. - stroller was thrown on the floor at landing and retrieval."
Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
Cons: "My chair didn't lean back and the entertainment monitor did not work for about 2 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours due to maintenance issues"
Pros: "Not much, the water I had on board tasted like water."
Cons: "An 80s-esque Trash-8 that has clearly seen better days filled every last seat with mostly Asian non-English speaking customers, I felt like I was in another world after the new 777 Air NZ flew me in on. Oh and that aging Dash-8 when we got to the runway was stopped for "Electrical Problems" we returned and sat in the crowded plane for 2 hours until they got another even older Dash-8 to get us the hour flight from YVR to SEA. Dirty, grimey, paint flaking off the sides of the plane. Barely got an apolgy from the staff after a delay longer than the anticipated duration of the flight. Never again, I'll pay for a rental car one way, I would have literally been home 4 hours earlier. Never again."
Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."
Cons: "Crew not overly friendly"
Cons: "Overbooked the plane and tried to get me to leave. No food. No drinks. No good"
Cons: "The luggage requirements are ridiculous - my bag was 5 pounds over and I was asked to be $100. The cost for an overweight bag should be the same as a an extra bag ...."
Pros: "Nothing lost my luggage we had a delay on Dec 29 from Montreal got to Toronto 15min later we missed the connection plane and there was nothing y'all could of done no hotel rooms no coupon for food telling us that it was all booked wen we didn't not asked to be on the delay and me coming back on west jet on Dec 30 I've lost my luggage and kno body there knows were it's at"
