Cons: "My luggage that was to be loaded in the cargo area of the plane never was put on the plane. No clothes, no shoes, no medications, no gps radio equiptment, and no special fishing equiptment, (as I was on a sportfishing vacation). Really, Really dissappointed."

Pros: "On time. Good crew."
Pros: "It got me to my destination"
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to check in at the kiosk because it was approximately 40 minutes prior to departure, and there were no ticketing agents operating the counter. When I asked the supervising TSA agent at Kalispell airport for help, he took my ID to the ticketing agent at the gate past security and asked her if she could check me in and print a boarding pass for me from there and she did not. I was traveling with two other people in my party, one of which checked in approximately 10 seconds before I did on one of the kiosks and the other checked in approximately 5 minutes before me. I had my flight booking confirmation email on my phone, my receipt for the $497 ticket, and I was very polite in asking for help and very polite in receiving the bad news. The Kalispell airport is very small (there are just 3 gates), so I understand that the ticketing agent in the gate may have been so busy that she couldn't use the computer and printer at the gate to check me in and print my pass, but as someone who works in customer service I must say I was extremely disappointed in the verdict of my dilemma. I maintain full responsibility that our group had made it to the airport with little time to spare, and could have prepared differently, but from what I witnessed between my group's experience and my own, there could've been a touch of customer service added to our experiences. When I called Alaska Airlines customer service to rework my flight, I was charged a $211 change fee. I called customer service 10 minutes before my flight's departure time, so I was very clearly not late, there was no line at the security checkpoint, and I could see that the other two people in my group made it through security and to the gate in no more than one minute. I explained that there was no ticketing agent at the main counter outside of security and that the agent at the gate did not see any possible solutions for me. To say the very least, I am extremely disappointed in my experience with Alaska Airlines and the Kalispell airport and am truly discouraged by the sense of entitlement that I felt from the airline employees, the TSA employees, and air transportation as a whole. Again, I maintain responsibility for my dilemma, but would expect actual customer service for someone who very clearly made a mistake but is being extremely polite and calm in asking for help in a situation where there was ample time to correct the mistake, especially since there were others in the party that had successfully checked in merely seconds before myself. I know that sadly, my shared experience won't make much of a difference in anything, but I can't stress the importance of customer service in this world where it's a dying practice. I'm certain there are employees with Alaska Airlines that would have handled the situation differently, but for this particular experience I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Left 5 min early and got in 40 min early!"
Pros: "Professional crew, perfectly on time boarding and flight."
Cons: "Way too hot on the airplane on the ground, in the air, and on landing. I think the AC was broken, but no explanation given or accommodation made."
Pros: "very friendly"
Pros: "Service was professional and accommodating"
Pros: "The people are most helpful, cheerful. Some confusion about the gate. The plane was clean. I would fly with Alaska again. Free checking of a carry on due to ful flight very nice."
Cons: "There was confusion about the departure gate. For an older person, gate changing in Seattle is not easy."
Pros: "Free wifi and charging stations for each seat! Bot of my flights, Alaska landed earlier than expected which was awesome. Compared to other family members who took another airline(which was delayed and cancelled) this was by far the best!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice as well as people in baggage. Quick flight..."
Cons: "Terrible customer service at ticket counter, flight was two hours delayed on my way out and no one was at the counter in the middle of the night so I had to bring my checked bag through security to have them then throw out my liquids! On return flight I was told to be there two hours in advance not one and they wouldn't even offer to put my luggage on another flight! Needless to say my parents had to come back to get it! They were the absolute worst, even the customer service wouldn't take responsibility and offered a $50 credit...never flying with them again."
Pros: "In my first flight with Alaska everything was excellent."
Pros: "my original flight got canceled due to weather. I had heard horror stories about having to reschedule flights, but that was no my experience! In a short 5 minute phone call I was on the next safe flight out only 2 hours behind my regular schedule and they were really nice during the whole conversation!"
Pros: "all and all,it was a pleasant flight,--seats were comfortable-nice flight-attendants-courteous and considerate pilate and crew"
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "The crew made sure the empty seats were available for the full rows to move into. Making a more comfortable flight for us in the rear of the plane."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, plane was clean and comfortable, and departure was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized - not due to the Alaska Air staff, but the space is a little awkward. The desk staff would announce the different times for boarding various categories, but it was hard to actually get in line because everyone was crowded around the area to line up, so those in the back could not get to the actual line."
Pros: "Leg room and large overhead bins. Offered to check our carry on at the check in counter for free."
Cons: "Suggest boarding the plane in 3 main groups instead of 2."
Cons: "Being way early and missing flight airline host mistake!"
Cons: "2 hours late. No explanation given. ZERO seat room-I've never felt so crammed in in my life. Just awful. I couldn't even reach my bags below."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Being that it doesn't arrive in ABQ until almost midnight, a 52 minute delay means I don't get home until almost 2 in the morning. Seats also seem to be kind of narrow on the 737-800. I'm not a big guy, but I am still bumping shoulders through out the flight."
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: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"
Pros: "Good flight. 3 hour duration at night. I flew in first class, as the extension of my business class flight from Paris."
Cons: "Had to use a wheelchair service in terminals. Me and another victim were wheeled to 40 feet from the check in desk and the guy took off without further instruction. I hobbled to the counter to make sure we were on the pre-board list. Defeats the purpose, but whatever....."
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: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time"
Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."
Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."
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."
Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"
Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."
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."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Long wait for clearance"
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."

Pros: "Tvs on last flight"
Cons: "Overnight delay in Dallas."
Pros: "Chargers in the back of the seat for devices Friendly staff Nice quality airplanes"
Cons: "Paid for WiFi, and it was very choppy and slow. Took over 3-4 min, and several refreshes to send/receive an email."
Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."
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: "I received help from the staff at the airport when I wasn't sure what to do."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."
Cons: "It was repeatedly delayed."

No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"

The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle".
