Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was quick and smooth"

Pros: "The Flight Staff was incredibly kind, and in-flight entertainment had a great selection of content"
Pros: "Time of flight is not delayed and arrival time is even ahead of the estimated time."
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Cons: "Waiting area was a little cramped and warm."
Cons: "We were sitting in the plane on the tarmac for 3 hours waiting to take off. The crew did a very poor job announcing what was going on."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and while watching a movie, there were many interruptions ( announcements )."
Pros: "Comfortable flight; free meals/snacks and beverages on premium economy."
Cons: "None that I can think of"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, attentive, and informed us of any delays going on. Great experience!"
Pros: "Good customer service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Sat for an hour before take off."
Pros: "Seats had slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seriously a coffee pot running hot water kept us on the ground another 45 minutes to an hour, very frustrating. There was one flight attendant Jordan that just made me uncomfortable she seemed rude and short even with her co workers. The food looked like it wasn't worth it on flight. Over all this experience made me second guess booking through Alaska and I'm going with the rei credit card instead too."
Pros: "Nice and friendy crew, and it seems I can always hear the pilots on Alaska. On other airlines, they are hard to hear. Alaska pilots were pleasant to listen to, as well. Comfortable seats and good leg room at back of plane."
Cons: "My seat was full of crumbs when I boarded, hair was sticking out of the magazine in front of me. I wish there was some cleaning/disinfecting of the plane prior to a new flight boarding. It's flu season and that's exactly what I got 2 days after flying home. I gave the food and entertainment 1 star as I didn't use either. Should be a NA option."
Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."
Pros: "Free movies!"
Pros: "We arrived half an hour early! Bags on time."
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Pros: "Very accommodating staff"
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Plenty of leg room. Departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "We were asked to exit the plane at Tarmac and I was traveling with 2 little children. There were a lot of stairs to get off the plane and then walk back to terminal and then a lot of stairs were there to get back to terminal. I was hurting in my knee and my kids ears were hurting badly because the pressure was not controlled while landing. It was a very bad experience and I will definitely think twice about flying Alaska again."
Pros: "Captain's flight commentary good Crew fine. Plane fine."
Cons: "slow, untimely, disorganized boarding Couldn't get seat assignment online or at airport."
Pros: "Was seated by a very nice couple."
Cons: "The plane was crowded. I was very upset to find that on a 6 hour flight I not only had to pay for entertainment I didn't even get to finish watching what I paid for. Was really pissed that on a 6 hour flight I had to starve because you also charge for food! Didn't have a credit card only cash that was refused so I was unable to eat."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Space between the rows is narrow, I understand it has nothing to do with the flight itself."
Pros: "The flight crew supplied plenty of drinks throughout the flight."
Cons: "Those seats are just never comfortable in economy class. They need lumbar adjustment."
Pros: "Flight service kept things light and friendly, efficient. Although the takeoff was late, attempts were made to shorten the flight so that overall delay was minimized on the back end. Thank you!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."
Pros: "Flight was 30min faster than we expect, awesome :) we arrived 30min earlier :) she was the most beautiful pilot i ever saw. ."
Cons: "Everything was just fine. ."
Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"
Pros: "Great service and extremely friendly staff. Brand new plane. More economy legroom then other carriers"
Cons: "This flight was first delayed, then not listed on the reader board. Then the flight added a stop over in Seattle for the the only reason that the crew was maximizing their allowed time to work. This delayed arrival at final destination. They could have brought on a fresh crew in Chicago but they did not do that."
Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"
Pros: "Arrived on time even tho it took off late."
Cons: "I don't believe I was offered the chance to reserve a better seat when I made my reservation."
Pros: "The fact I was going home."
Cons: "I've never been treated the way I was treated on an Alaska Airlines flight. I flew Delta there and Alaska Airlines home. The flight crew made rude comments about some of the other passengers. I'd I can hear them so can the other passengers. I will say my flight from Seattle to Anchorage was better. The Chicago to Seattle had me on the verge of tears. I think Delta may be choice to travel from now on. . I don't like paying all that $$ to be treated like I'm an irritation or nuisance on Mother's Day no less."
Pros: "We arrived alive"
Cons: "Very small, cramped plane and they managed to completely lose one of the items I checked that I have still yet to receive. Wouldn't have been so bad if they didn't only have 1 attendant working the baggage claim desk at RIC, causing me to stand in line for 30 minutes for them to essentially yell me that they had no clue where my bag was. If I had realized the second leg of the trip was overseen by American Airlines and not an Alaska affiliate, I would have likely chosen another flight."
Pros: "After we got off the airplane, the flight attendants went out of their way to help a woman who had trouble understanding English find and get to the baggage claim. The service and kindness exemplified by the staff really made the whole experience wonderful."
Pros: "One of the flight crew sang us an original song just before landing. It included directions on safety etc. and it was delightful, funny and sweet. Then when I was in the terminal two of the same crew helped me figure out how to get to baggage claim."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Friendly, caring, and knowledgable staff"
Cons: "No hot food choice on 6+ hour flight."
Pros: "Boeing plane was so comfortable and modern and new."
Pros: "More legroom than expected."
Cons: "Movies were not free."
Cons: "I got a "faux" window seat and felt very claustrophobic and misled."
Pros: "The crew and passengers were friendly. The most fun I've had in a plane in a long time!"
Cons: "Nothing! It was great!"
Pros: "On time & easy"
Cons: "Nothing I remember"
Cons: "I had tried multiple times to get a seat at the ticket counter and at the departure gate...when I was finally able to get a seat there were no aisle seats available...that was not helpful as I am required to get up every 1.5 hours and walk around the cabin because of health issues Beverage service was once and no snacks..I am used to this so brought along some snacks but it would have been nice to have peanuts and not only a cold drink but then some coffee."
Pros: "Best price"
Cons: "On display travel info"
Pros: "The turkey sandwich I had was made with actual sliced turkey, not deli meat. This was a treat for airplane food, and it wasn't very overpriced. It was also a very spacious, comfortable flight. The crew were very friendly and helpful. Alaska is definitely one of my preferred airlines."
Cons: "The flight was a little longer than it normally is, but I think there were some strong winds which slowed it down."
Pros: "Friendly, professional, easy going & helpful staff. Comfortable seats, with plenty of leg room (I'm slim and 5"6"). I like that carry-on bags can easily be checked at the gate (when flights are full), and that there is no penalty for doing so."
Cons: "Boxed meal (Mediterranean Tapas) was missing an item that was listed on the menu."
Pros: "I was given a surprise upgrade after a very long week. It was amazing! The flight crew was fun and they took excellent care of me. Thank you so much."
Pros: "Polite staff, awesome service."
Cons: "We would enjoy free wifi even if we can't have free movie streaming."
Pros: "Crew was amazing before and after the flight! Delta really showed if the world isn’t doing well, that their staff will keep those problems outside the plane and keep everyone calm and safe. Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. I’m going to join the miles points with Delta."
Pros: "Boarding was a fast and smooth process. Flight attendants were there to help with carry on luggage if needed. Always nice and do their best."
Pros: "Christina brown was amazing at gate"
Pros: "Flight was Good"
Cons: "checked baggage was damaged"
Pros: "They were great & super friendly!!"
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great! We had rough weather for the entire flight, and they handled everything great"
Pros: "Crew provided first class service and were in good spirits for a very full flight. Full first class beverage service"
Cons: "No food except cookies and salty crisps in first clsss. There was ample time for a full breakfast."
Pros: "Let's start from the beginning. The flight was delayed for over an hour. Despite guaranteeing anyone with a connecting flight would all be taken care of, here I am still stuck in Amsterdam airport... delayed another 10 hours. The service after arrival was poor and slow..2 hours to get new flight"
Cons: "The travel agents assisting should have been ready for the number of passengers and triaged accordingly. They did not. Which meant a lot of us standing in line for hours missing new connecting flights."
Cons: "Overall: pretty good."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "N/A. No food was served due to turbulence which is uncontrollable."
Cons: "Being on time. First it was a problem with the plane but that was fixed quickly. Then it was something about de-icing the plane which took over 40mins which made my son and I miss our connecting flight. The weather didn’t just happen. They should have been prepared."
Cons: "Flying from New York to Atlanta on business class there was no access to the lounge because I was not flying to Lima on the same day. I bought the whole international business ticket to Peru together, I don't understand why Delta consider my first portion not part of my international ticket!"
Pros: "Delta is always fabulous! Their crew is so helpful!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew with a clean plane!"
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly, condescending. They seemed unhappy about having to serve people."
Pros: "wow, got in 3 minutes early, its a short flight, but its no joke trying to get out of ATL on time! Great job!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."
Pros: "Flight turned out great... but I got lucky!!! Got a seat I wanted... now praying the same occurs on return trip"
Cons: "Not being able to assign my seat until I got to the gate!! Terrifying not to be able to choose seat fir such a long flight!!! Do not ever want to be in this situation again!!!"
Pros: "The flight was good but the air didn’t work again plane was warm the space was limited but the movies were good the flight attendants were OK"
Pros: "In general the crew attitude toward passengers"
Cons: "Toilets have been modified that a person could barely do his needs"
Pros: "Thanks for being so kind to me and my musical instrument. It’s how I make a living and your staff allowed me to keep it safe! I’m a huge fan!!"
Cons: "I didn’t like this question!! You guys are great!!"
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "In typical Delta fashion they boarded, deplane, board it again and then beat the plane. Blamed it on weather even though a full maintenance crew was beneath the plane in the entire time and, for the coup de gras moved a new flight an hour later 30 gate down. Classic Delta hopefully they'll be out of business in a year"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "The flight was uneventful and although we took off late, we arrived on-time."
Cons: "The rows of seats are so tight that when the big guy in the seat in front of me leaned back (not even putting his seat back) his seat banged into my knees. A combination of cheap seats and too many seats. Made for a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Mechanical failure had to switch planes an hour and 20 minutes late"
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and travel delayed by 24 hours."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Cons: "Smooth and easy"
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."
Pros: "Chicken kale salad was inedible. I did not know chicken had gristle!"
Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient.. Our seats were comfortable for the long flight.. great amount of entertainment to enjoy for such a long flight.. and good variety of food.."
Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay due to mechanical issues.. but the safety measures the crew and staff took was very much appreciated."
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."
Cons: "That when ever I try Delta there is a dramatic event that is mishandled and causes my flight to be extremely delayed or canceled. Promised to never take delta. I booked KLM and didn't know delta would be involved. Horrible."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "i got to Atlanta safely"
Cons: "what can cookies and a cup of juice do for me with all the delays ? i was hungry and tired. Seriously DELTA, it was a horrible time. i deserved a compensation from Delta for the entire day."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
