Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Love the route, and the on-time arrival"
Cons: "No power at the seat"
Cons: "Like the welcoming smiling stewardess"
Pros: "Burbank airport was awesome"
Cons: "More snacks!"
Cons: "The entertainment Wi-Fi didn’t work well"
Cons: "Things would’ve been a lot better if my flight was on time and my bags got to the carousel in a timely manner. Alaska has a 20 minute guarantee. Yeah not so much in this case"
Pros: "Great crew, smooth landing."
Cons: "The “Mediterranean tapas” meal is basically a tiny tiny school lunch, minus the comfort of PB&J. Want dried apricots? You get FOUR. All in all not too bad though. The entertainment/WiFi system is limiting- maybe REMIND us to bring headphones? And no WiFi unless you have T-Mobile? Tease."
Cons: "No Free Meal"
Pros: "Very efficient the entire way through. No hiccups, smooth sailing from Burbank to Portland."
Cons: "When I was assigned a seat, I had to find out myself. Wasn't informed. Requested for coffee on the flight and, although there was turbulence that got in the way, they never checked back with me if I wanted coffee. Small notes, but would have made the trip excellent."
Pros: "Enjoyed big leather seats in older planes. More comfortable."
Cons: "They oversold my flight and I had to take an hour long cab ride to another airport and go through security a second time. I arrived at my destination 2 hours later than I expected with my first flight. How do you over sell a flight?!"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Managed to board quickly and leave early!"
Cons: "Upgraded to an exit seat. Got the leg room, didn't get the shoulder room. Ended up flying the whole time with my shoulders pulled inward and left aching. I'll be avoiding 737's when I can moving forward."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and was a bit cramped."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "A flight was scheduled at the same time from Seattle to both Burbank and Lax. I made a dumb error but would have appreciated some accommodation instead of being charged a $125 change fee."
Pros: "More room in the pay-more section AND free drinks"
Cons: "Having to pay more to sit a few rows ahead of Coach class. Ridiculous! We're going to the same place!"
Pros: "I always fly with Alaska Airlines when I need to go to LA. Fantastic flight attendants and good services."
Cons: "But on my last flight with them, it was delayed for more than an hour and a half, which was longer than the time I flew back to SJC from Burbank. That mixed up my schedule for the whole day."
Pros: "Alaska crew and free refreshment."
Cons: "That you allowed me to choose seats together so I could sit with my daughter and then that all got thrown out the window and we had to sit apart departing and arriving. I bought these seats 5 months in advance on a barely half full plane. It's not right."
Pros: "Quick, easy, clean"
Pros: "Took off on time. landed early, free wi-fi. What more could I want?"
Pros: "The fight attendnts were extremely kind and helpful!"
Pros: "Seriously just above my expectation to the point of being pleasant."
Cons: "The mountain of children that boarded. Can't fault an airline for that!"
Pros: "The staff were great and helpful."
Cons: "I am a small woman but your seats are getting smaller and leg room is less. This leads me to believe that the "people" actually running this airline have little interest for those of us who have to travel in coach? Making money is the most important thing to these people who will always travel in private jets or first class. Congratulations to all. You are winning. Joanne Lewis email@example.com 206-550-0748"

Cons: "Boarding method."
Pros: "I liked the cheese platter."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the internet. Flight was delayed. No legroom."
Cons: "Crew was trying to be funny but it fell a little flat. Seats were small and cramped, no place for luggage overhead. Poor selection of beverages."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is superb from the boarding to getting inside the plane. Ground crew staff is amazing"
Pros: "The flight arrived early. The crew are pleasant and helpful. I've always liked Alaska and their NW partners ... not at all like the experiences that have been in social media of late."
Cons: ""If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." The airline would never be our destination, but Alaska is a very good way to get there."

Cons: "Not full capacity"
Pros: "Friendly personnel, seating not so cramped"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and the seats were moderately comfortable."
Cons: "Even though i booked a month and a half in advanced, i got stuck in a middle seat. The seats are tight and even if you want to pay for food, there aren't many options. I paid 18 for internet that was worse than AOL dial up in 1994."
Pros: "all was great"
Pros: "Comfort, space"
Cons: "Delayed flight, which would have been okay, except the staff made it sound like we would still land on time and we didn't. I would rather the message be consistent rather than confuse passengers about landing time."
Pros: "The service was great. Smooth take-off and landing. Comfortable and spacious seating."
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "It was a long trip!!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight. I did not have any food or in flight entertainment so I did not rate those areas."

Pros: "I liked the airplane itself, especially the roominess of the underseat storage place and the cleanliness of the cabin."
Pros: "The service on Alaska is excellent. I wish all my flights could be on Alaska!"
Cons: "Internet wasn't working. But, waddya gonna do? Probably not their fault."
Pros: "Awesome flight attendants! I really like that you guys announce when we've hit cruising altitude and that the Pilots give us an idea about how the flight is going to go; bumpy, smooth, when/if to expect turbulence. Thank you!"
Pros: "Economy is economy, so there's nothing to complain about :)"
Pros: "Alaska is my first choice between Burbank and Seattle but I go all the way thru to Bellingham and the trip between Seattle and Bellingham costs more than the first leg so I generally take a bus to Bellingham from Seattle. Wishing that last leg could become more affordable."
Cons: "Taking the bus from Seattle to Bellingham but the price differential is equal to another flight to Los Angeles so Seattle so I can't justify the cost."
Pros: "Wonderful crew. Kind and friendly. I liked being able to board from the rear of the plane in Burbank."
Cons: "They ran out of food and there was a mechanical problem that delayed our take off for 45 minutes."
Pros: "I asked for a half cup of decaf and it was almost half - that was fine. Seltzer water was a good option. Flight was smooth even with some turbulence. On time."
Cons: "No gluten free complimentary snack option...like gf pretzels. Thankfully I brought snacks."
Pros: "New airplane,friendly crew,professional services"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Charlotte airport needs to stop taking the protective cover off of my suitcase and I don’t get it back, this is the 2nd time that this has happened in Charlotte and it keeps costing me money to buy new covers and my suitcase becomes more damaged because they treat other’s belongings with no respect."
Cons: "App continued to crash. Couldnt watch movies."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Cons: "I've tried to respond twice now with a long detailed answer only to get booted out of the page. In short you and Flyus.com are criminals that ripped me off for over 430 dollars U.S. will never use you again"
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours late."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everyone was too hot, sweltering and perspiring, way to crowded and packed. Literally could not moved at all."
Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."
Cons: "There was a flight delay. That would have caused me to miss my connection. The airline switched me to another airline and did not notify me. Caused me to run all over the airport and waste extra 4 hours in waiting."
Cons: "Only one of the Tram car lines was running from gate to terminal at TIA"
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled by American. Had to fly delta to dtw! Yuk"
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: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "The e-ticket did not include the terminal information. As it was an Iberia flight I went to the terminal 7 where Iberia operates. However, after waiting on line when I got to the counter the attendant informed me that the flight was operated by American Airlines and I had to go to terminal 8. I ran to terminal 8 but by the time I got to the check in it was 6:15 and they said they said the check-in for the flight at 7(which was actually at 6:55pm) was closed for check-in. I was lucky enough that there was another Iberia flight (this one from terminal 7) st 8:30pm and the supervisor was able to find me a spot in that flight."
Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."
Cons: "Old plan with old seats and no individual screens. Very disappointing for a major airline! I wish I know it before buying my ticket."

Pros: "It didn't take long for anything."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional"

Pros: "The flight staff"
Cons: "The worst flight I have taken in years. The flight was delayed several hours. It was extremely hot on the plane and not enough air. Food had a bug in it when I opened the package. My bag was lost."
Pros: "convenience of Burbank airport"
Cons: "staff at check-in couldn't get my TSA pre-check printed on my ticket, got picked out to be patted down in regular line"
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "Baggage was lost!!!!!"
Cons: "The entertainment system failed, pilot tried to fix it, but he can't."
Pros: "From Miami to Chicago we had to land to Indianapolis due to the plane running out of fuel and also they have to fix something minor . Waiting still in the plane watching a cartoon they play for us to go back to Chicago ."
Cons: "The worst experience I ever had in thirty years of flying. I missed my flight because even though I got to LAX two hours before the flight, I had to wait on the baggage check for two and a half hours. The attendants were texting and talking and not servicing the passengers. When I told American attendants and supervisors that I was going to miss my flight unless they got me through they were clueless and didn't care about me or any of the passengers. The entire American staff were the most disorganized and careless flight personnel I have ever seen. Them they put me on a standby flight, where I was number eight and five minutes later was number eighteen, so I missed that, too. My wife is one of the top Public Relations people in Los Angeles and we both have tweeted and posted on social media extensively about this horrendous experience. I require a full refund from American Airlines for my airfare, and if I don't receive it from you will take you to court. --Eric Red"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and went on schedule. Actually first flight in a very long time and it was the holiday weekend. Yeah."
Cons: "Allergies. American Airlines must do a better job of accommodating children with peanut allergies. It is obvious they do not get the serious health issue and life threatening situation of the allergy. Our family traveling to Disney on AA had a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "Ontime boarding and helpful friendly crew,"
Cons: "Seats have no lower back support and are crowded entertainment does not support many android devices especially kindle"
Pros: "Sits were comfortable, love the tv combo allow to charge my phone"
Cons: "Cabin was very hot no air conditioning"
Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"
Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Flight left on time"
Pros: "The flight attendants were curtious, educated, and attentive."
Cons: "Wish the flight would've been more comfortable but we were in a smaller aircraft so I understood. Also boarding was late due to no flight attendant working the stand in Burbank for standbys until takeoff. I think had the flight attendant done so 15-20 minutes before regular boarding time, it would've gone smoother"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service, and how since it was a night flight the lights were off."
Cons: "There was nothing I didnt like"
Pros: "It left on time, the cabin crew were very nice, they kept us well fed. The pilot didn't hit any pot holes. No annoying children. We didn't realize that we would have to go thru US customs at the Dublin airport, That added another big chunk of time to reach the boarding gate. We made it with 20 minutes to spare. On the plus side, we could just breeze thru the US side and leave the airport."
