Pros: "Fast and service was great"
Pros: "Crew was great and overall flight was smooth."
Cons: "As we were boarding they told us that all overhead compartments were full and would have to check our carry on bags. Once on the plane the over head compartments above our seats were empty and we could of carried on our bags. We did carry on a so we wouldn’t have to check our bag. This was very frustrating"
Pros: "Seats looked new and clean. Flight came in early."
Cons: "The front desk gate associates stated that it was a full flight and there would be ZERO spots left for carry on luggage for me in the overhead bins. Therefore, I was told I MUST check my luggage, but there were SEVERAL open spots in the overhead bins when I got there! I do NOT appreciate this!"
Pros: "Planes are clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Communication needs to be better via text or email regarding flight status changes."
Pros: "A very short flight. And you really need to improve leg room."
Cons: "Comfort seems to be up to us, the passengers. You keep taking away our space. And soon , I hear, we won’t be able to recline our seats. And international flights are far worse. But you know that don’t you."
Pros: "BURVANK AIRPORT"
Cons: "I NOTICED I ALWAYS GET A WING SEAT THAT OBSTRUCTS MY VIEW. GETTING TIRED OF BEING SEATED THERE"
Pros: "Quick and organized."
Cons: "Once we we're boarded, it did take a while to leave. But great experience overall."
Pros: "The air conditioning?"
Cons: "Nobody ever wants to be advertised to (use our credit card?) after paying a few hundred bucks for the ride. I don’t care how many other airlines are doing it, cut it out."
Cons: "Everything was great, beverage service could have been more timely but everything was good"
Pros: "Good coffee"
Cons: "Serve drinks before take off."
Pros: "Boarding was OK"
Cons: "Plane was small and could not handle air turbulence. After landing waited 20 minutes on ground for a bay to unload Cost 3 times as much as Southwest"
Pros: "Fairly swift boarding. Comfortable seats Cocktails and snacks Free movies Free messaging over WI-FI"
Cons: "The last row in first class may have been a mistake. The person in the row behind me kept ramming into my seat as if they didn’t understand the dimensions of their own body. Not the airline’s fault."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no explanation was provided until we waited more than 30 minutes"
Cons: "My first flight was over booked and I was nice enough to give up my seat, however Alaskan gave me a $250. Voucher for another time. But my frustration with the flight that I was put on to Seattle and the continuing flight from Seattle to Burbank was delayed and not arriving for another hour late at 10:45pm, therefore I had to make other arrangements for a ride home from the Burbank airport costing me more money to pay and Uber ride back home to Simi Valley. Getting home way later than I would’ve liked to (11:45pm) considering I have to be at work at 6am. So I wasn’t too pleased with the flight delays"
Pros: "LOVED having an outlet at my seat. Great movie selections that I didn't have to pay for. Really friendly flight attendants who were very attentive."
Cons: "Flight wasn't quite long enough to watch an entire movie so I planned to watch the end of the movie on the way back but couldn't find it in the selection :( Seemed like the available movies changed over the weekend."
Pros: "What a nice crew! Literally the nicest flight crew I’ve ever had"
Pros: "Good staff. Friendly crew. Free WiFi for texting is awesome!! And power in every seat."

Cons: "Remove baggage fees"
Pros: "Great service quick boarding and unboarding"
Pros: "Very friendly attendants Smooth ride !"
Pros: "Bigger seats on Portland to Burbank flight"
Cons: "Ticket confirmation numbers are not provided with third party companies. I tried e-ticket #, confirmation #, reservation #s and none of it worked. The flight rep at the counter printed a ticket and told me the number listed on it my confirmation # and I should use it on my way back. That # was expired when I was having problems checking in online."
Cons: "I’ve was falling from the vent above my seat and into my hair and onto my lap... I called the flight attendent over to ask if it would stop and she told me it would not stop, it happens to any window seat because of the vent... I’ve flown a lot and NEVER had ice fall out of the vents repeatedly. Her response to my question was rude and she made me feel stupid for asking about the problem in the first place. The people around be we’re even shocked by her stern and rude response."
Pros: "The service and staff were amazing on Alaska airlines."
Pros: "Politeness and pleasant crew."
Cons: "I was given an option to change my seat at the check in kiosk, after selecting a different seat it told me they could not change my seat at that time. As soon as I boarded I asked one of the flight crew in the back if it was possible to purchase a cheese platter as I was really looking forward to it and was already hungry since I was trying to save room for it. She explained it was a first come first serve... By the time the lady got to the back she stood there for a while gossiping with another traveler without even glancing over at us and was holding our commentary cookies in her hand. She finally acknowledged us and when I asked for the cheese platter I was informed they had sold out... At that point I was HUNGRY and tired and honestly irritated that we had to sit there for several minutes without being acknowledged so she could gossip with a passenger. I ended up having to buy a box that I really didn't like but I didn't want to be cranky cuz I was hungry and I needed to eat something. Also, I had a middle seat ALL the way in the back of the plane next to a crying baby, which I couldn't change even though I was "given the option to." I have a difficult time flying if I can't see out the window. That just added to the irritation of the situation :/ I fly Alaska a lot and I was surprised at how bad this flight experience was..."
Pros: "Liked the overall experience"
Cons: "The landing was a little bumpy and bad"
Pros: "No space for my small duffle bag in the overhead binders"
Pros: "The flight was on time leaving and early to arrive."
Cons: "One of my flight attendants seemed grumpier than I would expect. Not rude, but not at all pleasant either. This was uncharacteristic from an Alaskan Airlines flight attendant in my experience."
Pros: "My husband paid extra for an elite seat. It was very roomy and comfortable. I got a nice snack but didn't get a complimentary drink. We got to San Jose 15 mins. earlier, that's why. The return flight from San Jose was wonderful. I got upgraded to an elite seat, better than the one I paid for, had a very nice seat companion and got my snack and a complimentary drink. I wish the trip had been longer. I have only had good experiences on my Alaska Air flights. About 5 now. Staff also very nice."
Cons: "Check in staff at Assistance counters either had problems with their computers or couldn't understand reservations. We had a pet for which we had paid for round trip reservation months ago, yet agent took quite awhile to reconcile our reservations. We stood in line for nearly a half hour during which their were very long lines at each check in point and at least one or two agents left on breaks while the lines were still very long. At Burbank the agents were fast, accurate and there were almost no waiting. The flight itself was great and the flight attendants were excellent; but not impressed at all with check in at Seattle."
Cons: "Our suitcase, along with those of two other people, was lost. This is a fairly high loss rate for a small plane flying between two not very large airports."
Pros: "Very Nice Crew. Flight was good and smooth."
Cons: "Wish I had a little more seat space...."
Pros: "Nothing much to report. Typical flight. Left mostly on time. Entertainment was lacking, but to be expected I suppose on a short flight."
Pros: "Clean quick quiet and nice staff. Easy and relaxing"
Cons: "Drink service was slow and infrequent"
Pros: "GOGO Internet is useless"
Pros: "First time I've ever arrived early. Boarded early because small amount of people on flight, which allowed for us to arrive 15 min early. Great job on the crew's efficiency"
Pros: "Aircraft was very clean!"
Pros: "Crew's politeness"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and my mother passed away while waiting for the plane to get going. Also I had to change my original flight because of my mom and Alaska reference send to give me credit even though I had insurance."
Pros: "boarding was good"
Pros: "crew nice... but I chose an available seat and they re- seated me in a middle seat ... this is done to accomadate a person who books after me ??? I dont understand when they do this or why and would appreciate an email.warning me and giving some options if need to reseat ... I chose a seat when thete were many seats available"
Pros: "Always professional yet relaxed!"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Made good time even with a maintenance delay on the tarmac after boarding. Got home. Lol"
Cons: "Plane was old. No screens. No outlets to plug in anything. Not even headphones. I had the first class divider curtain literally in my lap the whole flight. Ratty dirty old thing, if it's not going to be used get rid of it. Had to physically tie it up then it fell on me and I had to tuck it in my seat pocket to keep it off my leg. Lame food service and minimal drinks. Crew was friendly tho. I've had much better from Alaska in the past."
Pros: "The stewards were friendlier than most airlines."
Cons: "Wish they had tv screens behind the headrests."
Pros: "When landing in Burbank, we were able to exit the plane from both the front and the back! Since I was sitting almost all the way in the back of the plane, this made it very easy for me to exit the plane quickly. The plane also wasn't full to capacity, so I was able to have an entire row to myself!"
Cons: "Our landing into Burbank was very rough! We came in very fast and it was quite a scary experience."
Pros: "They held the plane for us due to the air tram malfunction at DFW!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, understandable. We deplaned. This was the first short 1.5 hour leg of an international flight. It seemed clear that we would not make our connecting flights, which messes everything up with covid tests, quarantine, and all the many restrictions that airlines have insisted without thinking about the consequences. I tried to share my concern with the agent at American Airlines, knowing that it would probably be better to rebook and start all over for the following week or something. But his limited perspective, condescending attitude, and egotistical control behavior would not listen to me and was only concerned with getting me to the first stop 1.5 hours away. 7hrs later, stuck on that same plane which rerouted and refueled, I am now stuck in a city for 2 days since I had to rebook and start all over for missing my international connecting flight. Still have 20+ more hours of flying to go and nowhere closer to my destination. Hotel, rental, and new covid tests are all at my expense. Just wish American Airlines staff would listen and help, but if you don't shut up and comply to their every demand, they will ban you and ruin your life forever."
Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay no explanation"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "More sanitation efforts. Stop overselling flight to help stop the spread of COVID-19"
Cons: "Cool AC, it was hot! AC barely working or set too low."
Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"
Cons: "I hate pretzels. Another option would be cool"
Pros: "The entertainment program was exceptional."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly and gave the impression they were tired of their jobs. The afternoon 'snack' pizza disguised as a hot-pocket in a small box was served 40 minutes before landing. This snack wasn't enough and wa served far too late for a flight that lasted 11 hours."
Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Food. No food at all on board per the flight attendees"
Pros: "The younger cabin crew lady had a permanent scowl on her face."
Pros: "If I had to choose one, the smiling faces of the flight attendants."
Cons: "The way they handle luggage was awful. They made me check in my luggage (was not necessary) and they broke an expensive makeup item in my luggage."
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight, but the pilot was on our side and we made it just in time!"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, flight was smooth overall. Arrived at destination on time."
Cons: "Collection of carry-on luggage (valet), snack options"
Pros: "The flight and cabin crews handled an equipment problem and consequent delay, and information about it, very well."
Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."
Pros: "Great seats w no annoying entertainment console."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"
Cons: "Flight got delayed which caused me to miss the last flight for my connecting flight."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. I was stressed the whole time because my flight was late in Abilene and was going to cause me to miss my flight in Dallas to Portland possibly and I had to run through Dallas to make it on time."
Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"
Pros: "Horrible landing. Also-landed early and srive around for 20 min with no announcement from cockpit"
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "On time flight. Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Rickey seats. When woman in row ahead got up our drinks spilled. No personal screens and small shared screen too far away. Online entertainment did not work. Special meal came frozen. Water bottle frozen solid and only as it began to leak on floor did I realize ice had broken bottle. really primitive."
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Long wait for clearance"
Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."
Cons: "Smallness of seats"
Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."
Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."
Pros: "appreciated having enough room for my knees not to hit the seat in front of me"
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Cons: "The "valet" checking of larger carry on bags was not acceptable. Passengers were expected to load their bags on a large cart while airline workers stood by watching them struggle, including the elderly. I was very disappointed and embarrassed for this airline. Customer service is definitely not a priority!"
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled. My rescheduleday flight was delayed and I missed my connection and had to spend the night in the airport. My 2 1/2 hour flight turned into a 16 hour trip."
Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"
Pros: "Tvs on last flight"
Cons: "Overnight delay in Dallas."
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: "Internet is kinda hard to get connected to sometimes."
Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth. Some of the planes were fairly new."
Cons: "Paid for each bag, on one regional flight the.plane was falling apart on the inside with no padding on the seat, armrest padding coming off the seats in multiple seats."
Pros: "The crew and all employees were very nice and did their best to ensure that my travels went smoothly. The flight was not so comfortable but I didn't mind much. Over all good flight"
Pros: "Good crew, very pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The three and a half hour delay was not great, but since it was due to weather issues in Chicago, certainly not the airlines fault. However, the communication about the delay was terrible. There was nobody and the gate, so we were relying on automated notifications from the airline. They kept pushing it later by 30 - 45 minutes at a time. We could have gone to the airport much later but just didn't know that."
Pros: "I received help from the staff at the airport when I wasn't sure what to do."
Cons: "My flight was changed a few times so I was sitting in the airport for seven hours before I was even informed on which flight I would actually be on. Horrible experience."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Seats are not very comfortable."
Pros: "We have no other complaints. It was all good."
Cons: "There was no air conditioner on the airplane . made it very uncomfortable ."
Pros: "On time and good price""
Cons: "Don't like the communist inflight movie choice shown? Other option than pretzels for snack?"
