Cons: "No snacks or beverages offered on a six hour flight"

Pros: "WiFi worked better than most flights I’ve been on"

Cons: "crew should be better and flight should be on time"

Pros: "Nice crew, intermittent information by crew, Plane ended up leaving ontime despite being delayed initially"
Cons: "Had to go outside via ramps onto tarmac to take a bus to the plane which involved waiting on bus for 25/30 minutes before it moved!

Cons: "No headphones provided for inflight entertainment. I have an iPhone 8 so I only have blue tooth headphones and couldn’t watch the movies displayed."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "The Flight Itself Is Excellent!!!!"
Cons: "The Flight Attendant Service Needs Improvement Meaning "1st Class", And Certain "Types Of People" Are Not The Only Passengers On The Plane!!!! Meaning I Had Ordered Something To Drink, And It Took Them An Hour, And I Had To Page, And Remind Them Of My Order. Also, On Long Flights Like This "Food Should Be Served At No Additional Charge" Seriously!!!! That Is All!!!!"

Pros: "Check in, quick boarding"
Cons: "First class food is terrible, first class seats are disgusting, dirty and broken. The Virgin planes are showing their age. No one is cleaning or repairing anything. The service is not what it used to be. They removed live TV and the movie selection is at least a year old. Sad sad state of affairs. Virgin was my favorite airline."

Pros: "Great flight! We didn't die and arrived on time."
Cons: "Alaska lost my bag! They found it later, but it took an hour of confusion at the end of a long trip."

Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"

Cons: "There were no headphones available on the flight, the seatbelt signs were half working, half not, and when I tried to use my own headphones- the jack in my seat was not operable. On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes."

Cons: "3 hours delay"

Cons: "When I came into la my seat was changed without my notice and I was placed in the emergency exit. The staff at the gate told me I was upgraded which was a total lie. I was uncomfortable the whole ride when that should not have happened being that I picked my seat over 3 months ago."

Cons: "No USB port to fit my ear buds so 6 hours with no audio/video To cold and was declined any blanket froze!!! Unfriendly stewardess both directions who didn’t care to collect trash:SMILE or care I was cold with no movie"

Pros: "I liked that the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "I hated sitting right next to the bathrooms. I didn't like the bait and switch of riding Virgin rather then Alaska. I didn't like that you couldn't buy headphones for the entertainment and that there were no games for kids to play as a part of the inflight menu. I hated that only regular drinks were free with no free snacks. Also the inflight crew wasn't that friendly or attentive. I hated the inflight safety video as this huge musical number."

Cons: "One 4 pounce cup of cranberry apple on a 6 hour flight"

When it did go, it was three hours late. Our flight ended up leaving at 3:00am. This is all excusable due to weather but I also lost my premium sat. The only seats available were the middle seats. I had booked early and had a great fee-free seat. I had to pay $75 to get a window seat. On the 1st leg of the trip they were 3 hours late coming out of Portland. I'm not flying JetBlue anymore.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Crazy American Airlines lady kept yelling at the first two passangers to use blue lane to board, which we were already walking in, pointing to us and repeating herself in a rude manner that made us pause and question ourselves that we were in the right lane! So we got out of the lane only to have 5 passengers cut in front of us. Idiot lady misdirecting passengers. Poorly handled."

Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"

The problem was probably made by me because I did receive a notice that a flight had been changed and I didn't follow up to see."

Pros: "Staff was nice and chairs were comfortable"

Cons: "The turbulence"

Pros: "The food."

Pros: "It's always a mess. SFO should put more chairs on the main level at international boarding and have people sit up there until their boarding class is called. it's simply too tight at the actual gate to have everyone clamorous to get on the plane"
Cons: "Flying in general just sucks unless you're in business class."
