Pros: "Simple and easy"

Cons: "They’re amazing crews"

Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"

Pros: "We got a free upgrade to first class."

Cons: "On the leg from Seattle to Anchorage there was a significant time delay due to a “medical situation” I suspect a young female passenger had a few to many drinks and puked all over the back of the plane prior to take off. It happens and is really no ones fault but her own. I guess being the smug person I am I would like to see Alaska be compensated by the young lady"

Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "yes"

Pros: "Really appreciated the staff at the ticket counter!"

Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No reclining capability"

Pros: "After a long delay the captain did his best to get us to Anchorage as quickly as possible. That was appreciated."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours due to the fact that the scheduled captain could not fly anymore due to hours. We had to wait to get another pilot. This caused some problems for some who had schedules to meet, and rides to be notified. The airline needs to see this possibility sooner so long waits are avoided as much as possible. The 737 was not as comfortable as the regional jet on our first leg of this trip."

Pros: "Awesome"

Cons: "Downloading an app to watch the movies does not work out if you're already in flight bc the wifi connection won't let you access the App Store. A little counter productive!"

Pros: "Lots of leg room."

Pros: "It was on time. Courteous employees."

Pros: "New seat configuration is nice. Like the option of a forward cabin upgrade."
Cons: "Flight attendants were goofing around on the PA system and not giving the full briefing. We all know it by heart now, but it was unprofessional and the one gal Mimi you could barely understand. Seemed like they had all been having a night out before coming to work. Not Alaskas usual standard."

Pros: "Always good"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My husband and I were seated apart from each other, despite booking the ticket 9 months in advance. I was seated next to a drunk individual who had personal space issues."

Pros: "Flying is difficult because it is so crowded but this is just part of travel. Alaska Airlines does a great job of getting us where we are going, on time."

Pros: "The beer."
Cons: "No blankets."

Pros: "Just whole trip was great."

Pros: "Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. Even though I am only a coach passenger, when I spend $400+ on a flight I expect at least a little bit of attention to be paid to the comfort and ergonomics of the seat."

Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "The onboard crew was rude and one guy actually grabbed me which to me is unprofessional. All because I had a poster tube that wasn't in my bag they wanted it in my bag. Then I asked for a seat change due to my size hard for ne to be in the middle and the lady was snooty about it."

Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Pros: "The professionalism of the crew and the cleanliness was excellent!"

Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."

Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"

Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"

Cons: "Little planes need an interior restoration to make them look better."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice enough and the snacks/beverages were average/as expected."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for more than 2.5 hours and the communication was poor. The gate agents weren’t helpful. The airport didn’t have enough outlets. Or chairs. My flight out to this location was also delayed by over three hours. At least they tried to make us feel better by telling us what was going on. The staff at the airport were rude and unhelpful and United airlines is unreliable."

Pros: "Yes"

Pros: "Seat good, boarding good"
Cons: "It was terribly cold, was not even offered snacks, the one steward was chomping on his gum very unprofessional on checking in"

Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"

Cons: "Delayed for no reason"

Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"

Pros: "I was connecting from another flight. The plane left on time, and arrived earlier than planned. I've had much worse experiences on domestic flights, and I was expecting delays."

Pros: "The flight was fine. Nothing that should have been positive stands out as missing."
Cons: "The first class flight attendant (male) was the worst. No interest in being on the plane, didn't bother to speak clearlybon the announcements. United should pull this person off of flight duty and deal with this person. The second is a terrible parent who let their kid cry the whole flight and afterwards in the jet way. This wasn't an infant had to be 4-5 years old and there was no parenting at all. The kid was old enough to be talked to. If you're kids can't handle flying, you don't get to fly."

Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected. The flight attendants were very nice!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes due to air control in Newark."

Pros: "Better than driving to Chicago. But if you want to get there, best be early!"

Cons: "Cancel my flight I had to buy my own hotel room"

Cons: "We were supposed to leave but had to wait on the runway. And I was a little cold , and the air was stale. Other than that it was great."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was given an exit row seat"

Cons: "Flight delayed only received a text about a rescheduled initial flight not my connecting flight waited in line for 2 hours only to find out I did have a connecting flight"

Pros: "The touch down was smooth."
Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."

Pros: "Free snacks and water because of a delayed flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4.5 hours. I was not alerted by kayak or united about basic economy seats and that I was not allowed a carry on luggage and had to pay $25 to check it in."

Cons: "I was unable to load on to the plane after trying to confirm my conferirmatiojn. I was scheduled for a flight from Detroit to Newark New Jersey . I had received a hematoma at the airport directly prior to the flight at the counter in Detroit. It was essential that I be on the flight because my aunt died the next day and was extraordinarily ill. This was all explained to the agent. They did nothing to help in this mess. I ended up flying to Washington DC on a different airline. They did nothing to try to help. I want a refund for this flight. There is no reason the airline could have helped out in some way. I have emergency room bills and death notices. Thanks for your help."

Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."

Cons: "Almost didn't get a seat."

Cons: "It cost me money to rent a hotel to stay overnight and get here in the morning and my flight was still delayed because there was no body to tow the the plane and bring it to the gate . Miss work , miss appointments , etc . Pharmacy about to shortdown because of this poor notifications . Could have gotten an American Airlines direct flight to Dallas in the morning and minimize the situation"

Cons: "Missed it due to delays"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight got hit with a fuel tankard and I had to stay in a hotel for the night. I didn't get to fly home that night and it messed up my entire schedule for the weekend."

Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"

Cons: "More leg room and on time!"

Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"

Pros: "Very good"

Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"

Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."

Cons: "Notthing"

Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out).

Pros: "The chairs were very uncomfortable."

Pros: "That it got me from A to B."
Cons: "Going from PHX to DTW I didn't recieve any confirmation email 24 hrs in advance. The AC in the cabin wasnt working and was unbearably hot. From DTW to PHX still didn't get a confirmation email 24 hrs in advance again with any policys or check in. Arrived "on time" but wouldn't let us and other paying customers through to our gate...wanted to make me pay additionally for our return flight the NEXT day when we both had to miss work. Was very disappointed with customer service and the way thinga were handled from the beginning. Frontier has really declined as of recent. Supposed to be going on a trip in October and initially was going to use frontier but not sure I will be any longer. Wouldn't recommend to anyone after that."

Cons: "The landing was horrible"

Pros: "I arrived 40 min earlier. Great job"

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I had to pay 40 for a carry on bag, although I'm pretty sure not everyone was made to pay that. In addition, when I went to check into my flight there was no attendent at the ticketing counter because there was no flight for 2 hours. The whole reason I get to the airport early is so I can battle the TSA line not wait to check in."

Pros: "Flying through the air"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The airline was prompt and actually ahead of schedule fly both departure and arrival on both trips. The plane was clean comfortable and all around fantastic for being a little older. The pilot was amazing, very conscious of movements and incredible landing skills."
Cons: "No free drink or peanuts."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "nothing, the service was terrible all around for frontier airlines."
Cons: "The airline had a hidden Carry On Luggage Charge that blindsided me. The combined cost of taking a carry on cost over half the amount of my roundtrip airfare for three people. Other airlines provide complimentary carry ons as a service to their customers. On top of this the flight was delayed by more than six hours and we were not offered any sort of refreshments on the flight free of charge to compensate for the large delay and overall made the experience poor. I will never fly with frontier again and would neither recommend the company to my clients or friends. I demand a refund on the charge of my carry on luggage as that was a shady business practice and poor service by frontier airlines for also delaying my flight."

Pros: "ZERO"
Cons: "NOT HAVING OUR BAGS"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Stewart was not very friendly"

Cons: "very cramped seating. Fee for carry on. Not a good experience"

Cons: "Nothing, it was fine"

Pros: "I find it unbelievable that Frontier could Fly in and Out of Denver under severe Blizzard like conditions."
Cons: "That you didn't cancel, while 800 plus flights were canceled and Frontier chose to Fly In It and Out of it."

Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Ridiculous up charges to be sure my 7 year old and I could sit together!!! And charging to bring any luggage, carry on or not, is absurd."

Pros: "None specific"
Cons: "Unremarkable"

Pros: "Plane felt clean. Boarding efficient as was check in."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."

Cons: "Outrageous bag fees. Need to read the fine print, since $80 per person for bags fees is significant."

Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."

Cons: "They lost my bags"
