Pros: "seat room"
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"
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Pros: "Crew was considerate and prompt."
Pros: "Smooth easy flight, nice new plane and friendly crew"
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."
Pros: "Crew was great! Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Space was tight. Would’ve liked a little more room"
Cons: "Baggage claim terminal wasn’t announced. Everyone went to the wrong place."
Pros: "Very sweet crew"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect"
Pros: "My husband and I paid for WiFi and it never worked"
Cons: "My seat was broken. It wouldn’t recline, and the headrest wouldn’t slide up. Boarding process was confusing. I was assigned to board with group 3, but they started boarding by letter."
Pros: "free drinks"
Cons: "Slow and disorderly boarding at SFO"
Pros: "On board staff was great. Flight was great."
Cons: "I bought tickets with the understanding a normal carry on was ok. When I arrived at the gate for our flight we were told Alaska had a new policy that started 6/4 (we were flying on 6/7) that only allowed a much smaller size carry-on. If suitcases didn’t fit the new smaller size rules one had to pay $25 and check it. We have three people flying round trip - that would add $150 to our total. I shopped carefully for low fares. Many people on the flight had to pay at the gate. Not cool Alaska."
Pros: "Earlier arrival then scheduled Great service Complimentary drink"
Pros: "Great conversation with a fellow passenger, food and drinks were enjoyable for the short flight, and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."
Cons: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."
Pros: "No one sat in the middle seat! Smooth flight!"
Cons: "Waiting to board"
Pros: "The staff is always super friendly, and with an hour and a half on the plane before we left one stewardess gave me free pringles (that I was going to pay for) because our 2 year old was “hangry”. I appreciate the gesture to make our day a little easier."
Cons: "I didn’t not enjoy sitting on the plane at the gate for an hour and a half. I wish we could or deplaned (or had the option to), with a 2 year old we needed to entertain him that much longer."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early, the staff was warm and friendly, and it was an easy flight."
Pros: "Enjoyed big leather seats in older planes. More comfortable."
Cons: "Seats weren't together with infant daughter."
Pros: "Great flight nice free entertainment"
Cons: "All good"
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: "A row of seats all to myself. On time departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Super polite and friendly crew."
Cons: "If I have to pick something, maybe the chatty woman behind me but that's not the Airlines fault."
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: "Comfort is always good as an Alaska MVP. Food is always good (fruit & cheese plate, yum!)"
Cons: "My bag was left behind in Seattle. First time that's happened."
Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."
Pros: "As the flight was delayed, staff made sure we had water and snacks in the terminal and kept us up to day. Kudos!"
Pros: "Took off on time. landed early, free wi-fi. What more could I want?"
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"
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: "Friendly personnel, seating not so cramped"
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: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "It was a long trip!!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "They did what their jobs required. They were never rude. If they were they would be talked to. They did what they were suppose to do. What else can I say? It was only an hr flight. I hour flight Jeez!!!"
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."
Cons: "We picked our seats for both round trip flights well in advance and we ended up being assigned less desirable seating on both flights. On the first flight we we ended up in the very last row next to a lavatory and on the second flight we had seats where the backs did not recline also. Go figure!"
Pros: "I fly with Alaska Airlines a few times a year to visit my best friend and her family in Northern WA and I find that they are always on time (unless waiting on a plane to come in) and they're efficient to get people seated and ready for takeoff by the posted flight time. Always professional!"
Pros: "Economy is economy, so there's nothing to complain about :)"
Pros: "The pilot introduced himself and kept us updated on the weather and turbulent."
Our flight was delayed by 7 hours
Pros: "Being a tall guy, I appreciated the extra legroom in first class."
Cons: "The boarding in Burbank was chaotic and caused delays. Resulting in a longer delay to my final destination."
Pros: "Flight to DC was good, on time, clean, pleasant crew, etc. And the flight back was mostly good, with exception of the booking and boarding issue."
Cons: "My TSA information was included in the flight to DC, but apparently omitted from the system for the return trip. This forced me to go through the non-TSA precheck even though I have paid for and am a known traveler. The flight was also late and making it later still, was the gate having to plead for passengers to check their bags as a way to avert the airline’s overbooking it in the first place."
Pros: "Not much maybe just the boarding"
Cons: "The staff needs to be retrained a lot like many police personal and subsequent Police departments. The first class is literally coach with a slightly nicer seat. They treat you like cattle at American Airlines. If you have another option take it."
Pros: "Seats were great! No snackage... #covid19"
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"
Pros: "Seat room is limited, especially when you are in the middle seat."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Clear communication on flight boarding"
Cons: "Attendant could have been more friendly."
Cons: "The plane was so small no roller bags could be accommodated. All bags were gate checked. Retrieving all those bags while on the jetway was difficult"
Cons: "Getting a flight"
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,"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, meals were served, flight was on time."
Cons: "I was forced to chance airlines, because, AA knew about an issue with the plane but still tried to used it."
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."
Pros: "Best landing I’ve experienced recently!"
Pros: "This is such a quick flight, and the staff made it quite easy."
Cons: "My in Flight Wi-Fi did not work. Not a huge deal, because it's such a quick flight, but it is a little Annoying, and may have just been a bad day for the system."
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from start to finish. On time departure. We did have to wait for a gate to open up in San Jose. It was a completely full flight."
Cons: "No gate being available upon an on time arrival."
Cons: "Airline valet checked luggage, deplaned us then had us wait as carry-on luggage was handed off one by one"
Pros: "It didn't take long for anything."
Cons: "The food, the salad can be better, there should be more on the tray than offered"
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Cons: "Pretty much everything"
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: "Pretty much on time departure and arrival. Comfortable, larger aircraft than usual."
Cons: "n/s as only a 40 minute flight"
Pros: "Crew was service oriented and friendly and food was good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating; ran out of water on an 8 hour flight, and no individualized entertainment"
Cons: "The landing gate in Palm Springs."
Pros: "Had window seat. Seat to close tho bulkhead wall. Shoulder literally resting on the side of wall the whole flight."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "PAID FOR SEAT WITH EXTRA LEG ROOM AND GOT NONE! DON'T PICK FIRST ROW"
Pros: "Short but comfortable first class flight."
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Cons: "Tiny seats in Economy, BA on the way to New York was so much better! Faulty seat which wouldn't recline properly and faulty entertainment system!! Having to pay extra for seat choice and then getting a tiny with no leg space or side space, again the BA plane on the way out was much better"
Pros: "Plane was clean; staff professional; no issues."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "the crew handled the lengthy delay as well as they could, seems like they didn't have any information either which is ridiculous."
Cons: "We boarded the plane at 1:30 for a 2:00 flight, there was a filter out in one of the three bathrooms; the option to take a 45 min flight without use of the restrooms was there, we were told to use the restroom if we needed to before the flight so everyone did... then we continued to sit on the ground for two hours. After two hours we were allowed to get off the plane, 20 minutes later back onto the plane, backed away from the gate and then pulled into a different gate and were told to get back off the plane. At this point we were given no info or direction but to go talk to special services if we want to re-book a different flight (sold out until at the earliest 8:15pm). After about an hour they announce they are re-boarding the original plane, takes another 45 minutes to board the plane, then we are told two separate issues caused this lengthy delay one was a filter in the bathroom and the other was a thermostat... seems like very basic standard maintenance issues that could have been avoided with routine checks. We were offered zero compensation, the trip took over 6 hours in all to fly from Philadelphia PA to Boston MA; a trip I could have driven in less time. I continue to have issues with American Airlines and "mechanical" delays, the last flight i was on From Charlotte to Baltimore was delayed an hour due to a strap in the cargo area. I don't understand the logic behind the decisions made to hold the full plane over 5 hours instead of taking a 45 minute flight, but I will say the crew was very apologetic and handled the situation well."
Pros: "I like that they have complimentary snacks"
Pros: "Great service, good window seat, smooth flight"
Cons: "No music/radio at my seat"
Cons: "No seemed happy at all."
Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Pros: "Great nonstop, friendly crew"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Why are stews so rude."
Pros: "The first flight had built in video screens."
Cons: "But video screens in all aircraft."
Pros: "Awesome and funny service."
Pros: "Excellent gate crew"
Cons: "Pretty uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "gate agent helped to get me on a flight at LAX just made it an extra 10 hours"
Cons: "not cancel my flight"
Cons: "Has lots of contradicting texts about flight status"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible, as if the seats were made for children."
Cons: "Delayed departure; cramped seat; minimal amenities"
Pros: "I had my own row"
Cons: "Seats are still so bad. I think I got a headache from looking at my phone the whole flight."
Pros: "Paid for Econoplus seat but was assigned a seat in the row before the emergency exit. Seat uncomfortable didn’t recline had to go through refund process"
Cons: "Would not give us hotel vouchet"
Cons: "Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Why no food on a 4 hr+ flight?"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Hard seats....."
Pros: "Flight crew did everything possible to make up time lost from a maintenance delay."
Cons: "Crew member splattered me with tonic from a can he opened for the passenger in front of me. No harm done, however."
Pros: "I liked that we flew directly into Palm Springs, which is my local airport."
Cons: "I didn't like how tight the seating spaces were. I'm a thin, small person and I was not comfortable. I can't imagine how a taller or heavier person could be accommodated comfortably. I never thought I'd say this ... but I've now decided I prefer taking the train because domestic air travel is just too confining!"
Pros: "I really can't complain about the flight. Great service and on time"
Cons: "The only unfortunate thing was there were no TVs which was a bummer"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "All good things"
Pros: "6 HOUR DELAY I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL"
Pros: "Arrived early!!!"
Cons: "No snacks!"
Cons: "The Overnight flight I had was EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Too uncomfortable to even sleep at all. The seating is so tight, I could barely move my legs when the seat in front of me was reclined (and I am tiny!) I landed after my connecting flight was already boarded, causing an employee from the airline to announce my name over the intercom on the plane and tell the passengers to "clear a lane for me." I ran with my suitcase over my head, bumping into people and making it to my next gate...where I was told there was ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM for my carry on...which was also, very tiny. I specifically did not want to check my bag because I needed to immediately hop off the plane to make it to work on time. Another customer was VERY upset about having to check his bag and was pulled aside. I finally was told I needed to check my bag at the gate to get on. So i did. As I entered the plane, about half of it was COMPLETELY empty with PLENTY of room. I was floored. About 10 minutes later, the very angry man happily entered with his carry on and stored it easily in the overhead bin. My frustration was at a peak. But I said nothing. When I arrived to Newark, I rushed to baggage claim and guess what? After 30 minutes of waiting, my bag never showed up. I had to check in with information and finally found it. But this caused to me to be late for work. I have usually had a great experience with United. But this experience has changed my mind completely and am very upset."
Pros: "The best time to fly a particular airline is right after they've been in the news with bad publicity. Every single personnel was attentive and cordial."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane and very full. The seats are packed so tightly together, you dare not sneeze."
Pros: "Everything was fine on the first leg."
Cons: "Delays, very long delays. Not a fault of anyone but United had delays."
Pros: "I was able to get to my destination safely"
Pros: "All aspects - crew were pleasant, flight was on time and smooth, meal was reasonable"
Pros: "Very comfortable and the staff was great!"
Pros: "Will never use united."
Pros: "fast smooth safe trip"
Cons: "They ran out of food, didn't get any snacks, which were pretzels, I would prefer peanuts like in the old days."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and on board crew was nice and helpful. Flight attendant noticed I came on with a cane and offered to have a wheelchair ride available in the SF airport. Reminding me that it was a large airport. I declined, but she encouraged me to try it and I agreed. She was concerned and very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was a small plane and we had to disembark on the tarmac. There were two attendants with wheelchairs but they didn't have my name so I walked on. The flight attendant called to me and said to wait. One of the attendants came up with a wheelchair and said he would take me. Unfortunately, a steep ramp had to be used to get into the airport building. He asked another worker to help him and all the way up the ramp I had to listen to comments about "good thing they had eaten their Wheaties" and "they were getting a good workout." I know that I am not a small person, but these ongoing comments were rude and insulting. When we got into the gate the attendant told me that he didn't have my name on his list and had to call for permission to take me through the airport. I waited and he came back and said he couldn't take me, but if I could wait someone else could come for me. I had waited enough already and suffered their rude comments, so I said no thanks and walked slowly through the airport. This experience has left me with a bad feeling for the airline and its personnel. I believe their staff could use sensitivity training at the very least!"
Cons: "Delayed because of baggage not being ready for flight."
Pros: "Stewardess were very nice"
Cons: "Tried to change flight to different day cost was rediculus united wanted an additional amount equal to the cost of the whole round trip not very helpful Were TSA approved going but not returning At 84 did not appreciate this. Will not fly United again if I have a choise"
Cons: "Ron working the check in desk at United gate B67 to B79 was extremely rude, condescending and combative. I was appealed & offended by him and the way he spoke to me. I also observed his poor treatment of other passengers I will not longer use United Airlines for my flight needs"
Cons: "Had to wait at gate for a while before disembarking."
Pros: "Updates from pilots Airbourne"
Cons: "The gate told us it was a late arriving aircraft but that flight wasn't late.. it was a negative swap and there was no way for the inbound crew and aircraft to be on time.. just tell the truth.. feet were freezing"
Cons: "Short flight everything was fine"
Cons: "No notification that the flight was cancelled until I got to the airport. Not sure then why I share my phone number and email"
Cons: "Loud girls behind me talking."
Pros: "Super sweet flight crew and great entertainment."
Pros: "Finally a United flight that left on time and arrived on time!"
Cons: "The entire United experience left me wanting something, anything from this airline. Unfortunately the only thing they will get from me is no more chances for service recovery. They failed miserably!"
Pros: "Very good! Very nice and friendly employees!"
Pros: "Crew was able to get most of those delayed onto the incomming flight which was also delayed."
Cons: "The fact that united has no spare planes in case of a delay. Not cool."
Pros: "We boarded in record time and took off in record time. The landing was so smooth I hardly noticed it. Perfection!"
Cons: "Anything I didn't like is typical plane stuff - small cramped seats, one cup of soda instead of the entire can, etc. Nothing unusual!"
Cons: "Four hour equipment delay on departure One hour equipment delay in return I never want to fly connecting again but it was the only way to get from Newark to Burbank."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delay on the way there and the same on the way back. It's so unacceptable"
Cons: "they didn't serve us, not even water. Also they tried to land once and they could not and then they took us back and retried. Not an explanation or anything.. I believe that the pilots didn't know what they were doing.... I fly frequently but this is one of the worst experience, plus have in mind that you go to Palm Springs to enjoy and relax not to die.., If you have turbulence least announce the passengers and prepare them."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the plane seating and room was comfortable, no complaints."
Pros: "Other than all my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Flights delayed"
Cons: "I asked a staff member a question about my checked luggage and I felt like he blew me off. No big deal though."
Cons: "Seats in economy are always short on the knees. Paying $25 for checked bag is way out of line. Free is better, but $10 max would be more than enough since fuel charges have gone way down for all air lines."
Cons: "Had to go through the boarding process twice due to molding in the passenger area that needed to be glued. Perhaps an inspection could have been made prior to boarding?"
