Pros: "Nothing. Perhaps the airline model."
Cons: "Virtually everything. I will never use CE or most likely any Chinese airline ever again. Oh ya. Shanghai is a shithole."
Pros: "We were flying international and bags were checked through to our final destination AND AA did not charge us for our checked bags because it was booked as part of an international ticket. (which I didn't learn before flying so it was a pleasant surprise, most airlines want to charge you for the domestic leg of your flight)! They allowed us to board early and were very accommodating for our family of 7. I finally figured out the in air entertainment on our devises, which didn't seem to work on our previous flight. Snacks were minimal."

Cons: "No pillows for 6.25 hour flight:("
Pros: "I love how prompt, if not always early, your boarding and flights were/are. While you're crew on all the flights weren't effusively warm they were all polite and cordial enough. Over all I would very much like to fly Alaska Air again, partially because it would mean I'd get to see my newfound boyfriend in Alaska again as well. Thanks for everything, and keep up the great work!"
Cons: "For such a long flight at night we weren't offered a pillow to use or blanket and the seats are so small and cramped it was hard to get comfortable.one snack was offered the whole flight and the prices were too expensive to order."
Cons: "Not the fault of the crew, but someone's coffee mug leaked all over the overhead storage compartment and dripped on top of all the passengers sitting underneath it. Other than that, it was a pretty smooth and short flight."
Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"
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: "Flights good"
Cons: "You annoying for sending these all the time so you going to keep getting this unless you stop"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines has great leg room and comfortable seats"

Pros: "Flight was great! Check-in staff very helpful, crew fantastic, seats very comfortable, on-time departure and arrival... Loved it!"
Pros: "On time departure. Arrived a few minutes early."
Pros: "You need a not applicable option, as I did not partake in the food and there was not entertainment on this short flight. Quick flight! Arrived early!"
Cons: "The planes were tiny. Really small and uncomfortable. The staff-from check in to the flight attendants, were unhelpful and borderline obnoxious. I think this may be my last Alaska flight."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, and their newer planes are really streamlined, but this wasn't one of them."
Cons: "The actual food they offer was sub-par or unavailable. Bring your own."
Cons: "1. I sat at a window seat watching baggage handlers look at my bags with the fragile stickers all over both of them, then purposely flip them upside down and slam them on the conveyor to plane. Once I got to midland and opened my bags my boxes of Business supplies were damaged to the point that they have to be thrown away. If I could have insured my bags I would be suing Alaska airlines for the replacement of my damaged items, and the firing of the handlers that did the damage, including the loss of of money that I couldn't make because I couldn't do my job. 2. I informed stewardess that I was recovering from a dislocated shoulder and asked for a pillow or something that I could rest my arm on, that never happened and I had to sit for hours on the fight in discomfort and pain all the way. Thanks for making my flight a comfortable one. 3. I wasn't allowed to purchase anything on any flight with the cash in my pocket, including Wi-Fi / entertainment. Because I didn't have a credit card. This is a foul idea your company has. My cash should have been efficient enough. It is legal tender anywhere in the world but your airplanes. In my opinion I feel that your airlines suck and owes me the amount of 135.00 for the replacement of the items damaged, plus the amount of the tickets I paid for because I didn't receive the services in which should have been courteously given by your company. And apologies for that crappy treatment of me and my property. Just because I'm not one of your gold members or a credit card holder or first classed passenger shouldn't give your employees the right to treat anyone this way. I flew all the way from Alaska to midland to do a job and couldn't do it on time because of this treatment and damage. What would you do if this happened to you? Would you feel satisfied with how your company handles its PAYING CUSTOMERS???"

Pros: "Service was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and plane wasn't overbooked, which was nice."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy. The flight attendants were great and the plane was newer which was nice."
Cons: "The gate changed shortly before boarding was to start. When we got to the gate (the original one we had on our ticket), there were few people at the gate and we asked the desk agent if we were in the right place. He told us we were so we waited. We were concerned and when we went to ask the agent again to confirm, he has left the desk. The new gate was only just next door. luckily we made it, but it would have been nice to have received a text message or email that the gate had changed."
Pros: "On time, new plane with power station at each seat."
Cons: "Too warm, maybe it's me."
Pros: "It was a great trip. Thanks to your staff for helping me get home for Christmas on a budget!"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. Fairly comfy seats."
Cons: "Don't know why the second 2 pass with the drink cart immediately follows the first, then the third is right before you land. Would've preferred them more spread out. Not a huge deal, though. Also, would've liked to know that I'd need to download an app beforehand if I wanted to access entertainment on the flight. Maybe mention that while we're waiting to board."

Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. My son and daughter-in-law (married the day before) were are the flight as well, and the flight crew went out of their way to welcome them."
Pros: "Like the “lanes” for boarding; however, there was no announcement so some people did not know and did not line up and just cut in between those who had. Biscoff cookies are always appreciated."
Cons: "The WiFi was very cumbersome to use, despite the instructions. The monitors had a marked delay when touched, making the entertainment a challenge to use."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Cons: "That Delta was not more accommodating when I missed my flight.. Got totally lost in Austin. Have never driven there before and highways were difficult at times. $503 to get on another flight home. Ended up getting better deal at Southwest. Will most likely stick with them next time I am forced to fly."
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."

Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"

Cons: "Food was rather marginal (really no surprise, it's airplane food), tried unsuccessfully to hook-up to in-flight Wifi (couldn't get it to work throughout the flight)"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."

Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"

Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."
Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"
Pros: "Uneventful flight - boarding was great and there were no hassles."
Cons: "No food. No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The cheap seats were… well cheap. Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "The flight got us from Anchorage to Atlanta on time."
Cons: "No A/C vent controls for each seat. No reading light for seats. No flight attendant call light buttons were accessible. NO WiFI or video entertainment. Coach plus seats were just like the rest of coach, just in front of them. Seats would not adequately recline. The plane was still PACKED."
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."

Pros: "Entertainment. Center was great"
Cons: "Boarding has been made so complicated it's a joke."
Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."
Cons: "Having my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me all flight wasn't very thrilling. Seat was pretty hard too."
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great with many new movies available for no additional cost."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over two hours. We were scheduled to arrive in Detroit around 10 pm which was already on the later end of our comfort zone. By the time we landed in Detroit, claimed out bags and made the 1.25 hour drive home it was after 1:00 AM. This was not a pleasant end to our trip."
