Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing. Terrible customer service; horrible experience."
Cons: "Nothing. Terrible customer service; horrible experience."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 40 mins, then left 40 mins after scheduled even including the delay, no free in seat entertainment and the wifi was broken. Really not a fun flight overall. Also, please Alaska, get rid of that Cabernet Sauvignon that's sweeter than grape soda. Single worst wine I've ever tasted."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The first class crew were TERRIBLE! They were obviously not happy to be there or be working. Didn’t check back on us, didn’t pick up our empty glasses, and didn’t even say goodbye. Too busy just talking to each other. I assume this was because it was an American flight. I’ll fly Southwest next tim"
Pros: "Great crew, nice service, comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was good, on top of refills and trash. We were able to board and take off on time and landed early."
Cons: "Even for first class, the seats aren’t really much roomier or comfy than coach. More leg room, but that’s it."
Cons: "A little more food on the 4+ hour flight. Otherwise a great experience!!"
Cons: "Flight attendant was on phone rather than greeting customers as we deplaned."
Pros: "I always enjoy Alaska but this was another level. I was horribly late and still processing at security with 10mins until take off and the guy at the gate called me to see where I was - gave me mins to make it - which I did - just.. I was traveling to San Diego to meet my family for the weekend - I would’ve been in severe trouble had I missed the flight. Thanks Alaska!!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the aircraft was clean."
Cons: "The only downside was the plane had no food and the announcement wasn’t made until we were already boarding (they didn’t know either - not their fault). I was expecting lunch since I was in first class, but the crew did as well as they could to provide us with snacks."
Pros: "Everything about the flight, from boarding to deplaning."
Cons: "The menu could use an upgrade but that’s the only thing bad I could say..."
Pros: "Usb and 120v plugs in seats. Got a row to myself."
Pros: "Every Alaska Airlines employee went above and beyond to make sure our family had a great travel experience. Our seats were assigned together, we were not charged for checking smaller bags, and the beverage/snack service was fast and they checked back often. Seats on this plane were roomy and the flight was not over-crowded. Boarding and de-boarding were easy and relaxed. Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Wasn't offered any water or snack, only stuff for purchase."
Pros: "What’s not to like about this airline? Honestly, I am such a fan of their Airlines that it’s hard to imagine flying any other in the United States."

Pros: "Boarding and expected part of the flight were fine."

Pros: "everything"
Pros: "The boarding was quick & as usual Alaska is on time! I'd like to thank Taylor from flt 784 from BWI to SAN. She took good care of my son who wasn't feeling well."
Cons: "Assigned seats separated from my husband. I'm seated in the middle of a couple, while my husband is on the other side of the row. Not happy at all"

Pros: "My return flight was precisely on time, boarding was efficient and the offer for a free chat service while in the air (though I didn't use it) was a nice touch."
Cons: "While my flight was short and snacks weren't necessary, I was pretty underwhelmed by the snack offerings."
Pros: "Far more overhead space and legroom than other airlines. Power outlets in every seat. Incredibly friendly and flexible staff. Barely ever late and, on late departure have even used extra fuel to fly faster to get there on time. Truly a top notch airline."
Cons: "More food choices would be nice."
Pros: "Great Upbeat Crew makes for a pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I returned on Flight 552 from PDX to SAN. I really want to appreciate the patience and good humour of one of the crew, Becky, who was serving us. I will certainly fly Alaska again."
Pros: "After an absolutely horrible experience with United, we ended up switching and booking a last minute flight on Alaska. So glad we did, they got us there on time, the plane was comfortable, snacks were good and the tablets for movie/TV watching were great. Most importantly it was a direct flight instead of 3!!!"
Pros: "Promptness of departure"
Cons: "Very crowded"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Pros: "It was my first time flying with Alaska. I was pleasantly surprised with the boarding times, organization, super-friendly crew, free entertainment (a few select movies with complimentary tablets to view them on), and outlets for charging mobile devices in every seat. Easily the best flight I've had in a couple years. I will fly with Aaska again."
Cons: "I felt like the aisle was unusually small ( I was sitting in an aisle seat and was occasionally bumped by people walking by me. Then again, I was in a deep sleep most of the time and could have easily been leaning into the aisle....I'm not really sure. Overall though, best flight I've had in a while. They really do a great job."
Pros: "Everything was easy"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "My tv monitor did not work."
Cons: "Ladying calling out the plane numbers i could barley understand her"
Pros: "I like when they dim the lights so I could sleep"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude, I was too tired to deal with her attitude"
Pros: "Kind staff. Nice, newer aircraft"
Cons: "Copilot was changed/ not on time and delayed the flight by half an hour. Also, sat beside a man who was far too large to be in a single seat with hygiene issues he clearly was unaware of. Made the 3 hr flight very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I was on time"
Cons: "Compensation for your mistakes"
Cons: "Seemed disorganized getting on"
Pros: "The crew were super nice. All the people in the SAN were very nice."
Cons: "They didn’t have headphones :("
Cons: "Incredibly cramped airplane"
Pros: "The meals on Japan Airlines (JAL) were delicious!"
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Pros: "Flight from Narita to Kaoshiung was great, as usual, with JAL"
Cons: "Slept overnight in LA terminal, Bag sent to San Diego. Flight on American Airlines to Narita was cramped. Short stay in Narita, on to Kaoshiung via JAL, got to Kaoshiung and bag was/is still in San Diego. Hopefully, I'll never have to fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"
Pros: "Landing at my final destination."
Cons: "Over 3 hours of delays. American Airlines needs to get their act together at Chicago O’Hare airport."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, and my wife and I were lucky to have empty seats next to us."
Cons: "Old plane, no food, no in-seat entertainment, drinks only for purchase. This is what air travel was like in the 1980s. A nice throwback flight!"
Cons: "They didn’t board us closer to the front just because we had an hour layover. Barely had time to go thru customs n tsa to make it to the gateof our connecting flight."
Cons: "Delay in boarding was over an hour"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I have flown this airline many times and never once have we ever taken off on time. We left 2 and a half hours late and the people that work for them are grumps all the time. Never flying them again."
Pros: "Direct flight from desired origin to destination Boarding by zones"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, small, seat space with inadequate legroom. Lack of personal entertainment options. Paid extra for earlier boarding group which only benefited me by about 5 people. (NOT WORTH IT!) Lack of complimentary food options. (Pay for everything)"
Pros: "Was impressed with the legroom, and complimentary in-flight entertainment. I am a big dude (6'4" - 230lbs), and I found it enjoyable to have room for my knees (I feel like there are a number of airlines where my knees are in the seat in front of me). The crew were very pleasant; they worked to move the people in my row so I wouldn't have to be squished between another guy (also a big dude)."
Cons: "I wish the snacks were better. I would love some complimentary fruit options."
Pros: "Love the entertainment system, watched a movie and was able to charge my phone too"
Cons: "Gate the boarding process but that's about it"
Pros: "TV screen in back rest was nice"
Cons: "See comments above"
Pros: "Once we were in the air, the flight was average."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to several mechanical issues but the ground crew did not communicate effectively on the issue or how long the delay would be. I understand that these issues occur, but better communications and empathy from the ground crew would have gone a long way. Boarding was also a disaster because everyone tried to board at the same time and again, the ground crew did nothing to control the situation."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "The terminal was a long way from the main terminal and accessible only by shuttle bus. Also we had to re-check our bags following our first leg flight and subsequently couldn't change our flights to an earlier departure."
Pros: "An open seat next to me"
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No individual movie screens and no way to connect to the one movie on the flip down screen since I didn't have the American Airlines app."
Cons: "Unbelievably poor customer support. They accidentally canceled my flight and when I tried to retrieve my seat back, the lady was taking it as somebody else problem... If the AA was the one made an error of canceling my seat, I wished they would show at least an attitude of taking responsibility to fix the problem."
Pros: "Staff was awesome!"
Cons: "As was getting in line for security, overheard it was at least a one-half hour wait. The wait was actually pretty close to 1/2 hr."
Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"
Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Well organised"
Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Plane full, like traveling in a cattle car, jammed in, My minimal contact with flight crew was fine, flying these days on any airline in coach is the same, American neither the worst or the best, in flight movie was the trolls, horrible movie"
Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."
Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"
Cons: "Missed Connection."
Cons: "The stewardesses were gossiping in the back of the plane and we could all hear their complaints about the new uniform policy. They did not seem very happy to be there and there was no in flight entertainment. A total bummer."
Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "It did not happen! Had to taxi to Austin!"
Cons: "No power at JFK. Customs and baggage claim a nightmare. After a tiring international flight, 4 hours in airport find out my flight is canceled. Miss a day of work because can't get flight until following day. No airline offer of food or hotel accommodation."
Cons: "1 hour late. And when the pilot made announcements during the movie it would not pause. We missed parts of the movie. It was annoying."
Cons: "I'm still waiting for my 10 pm flight and it's almost 2am."
Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."
Pros: "The staff were professional about the situation. Flight attendants were nice, courteous and the complimentary drinks were good. It was a good flight despite all the changes... but who likes their flight changed anyway."
Cons: "flight was delayed. standing there and they said our plane was there but didn't know what gate. our gate was a35 then changed to a28 but then delayed 1 hour, then 2 hours. So overall, it was switching back and forth then changed the time from 1830 to now a 2000 departure."
Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Cons: "Heat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "HORRIBLE!!!!"
