The crew was professional and efficient while still being friendly. It was a very easy process all around.

Crew were great. Entertainment was none. Trip was boring if you didnt bring something to do.

Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Food and entertainment system"
Pros: "I really liked that this time I was offered a beverage and after I got it, the stewardess who was following the treat cart looked at our seats and checked if everyone was offered a beverage. Loved it!"
Cons: "Everything was AMAZING."
Pros: "They were rude and the ride was tight. Over packed"
Pros: "Food was excellent service was good"
Cons: "Boarding was too slow we sat at gate for almost an hour for baggage to be loaded"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and pleasant. Appreciated the movie options"
Cons: "Still no tablets for movie viewing. I get that you have an app.. but I sure miss the bigger than my phone screen tablets to watch on."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth landing."
Cons: "The “Mediterranean tapas” meal is basically a tiny tiny school lunch, minus the comfort of PB&J. Want dried apricots? You get FOUR. All in all not too bad though. The entertainment/WiFi system is limiting- maybe REMIND us to bring headphones? And no WiFi unless you have T-Mobile? Tease."
Pros: "Last flight I had they didn’t charge for my luggage and this one it was $30 and it was the same luggage bag from last time don’t under why"
Cons: "Why did they charge me in this flight for the same bag"
Pros: "The plane was warm"

Cons: "New bag limitations"
Pros: "I always love flying Alaska and the flight attendants are always super nice!"
Pros: "The crew was so darn efficient and the pilot was so funny over the speaker! Thank you Alaska for slaying this flight"
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Every single flight left extremely late which meant I was running through the airport to catch my connections."
Pros: "The efficient boarding. Unlike other airlines, overhead compartment is large enough so passengers don’t need to check in at the gate."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Comfortable seat, though I could have used more foot room in the aisle footwell."
Cons: "Egg frittata was tasteless. Bathroom configuration is dismal - 3 "heads" in the rear for coach left many people standing in line in the aisle while crew were trying to work around them. Had to be uncomfortable for those in rear aisle seats."
Pros: "Easy on off and let us sleep"
Pros: "I was able to sleep on the flight and it went by pretty quickly."
Cons: "Crew was so quick with the water and snacks that I was only able to get one cup of water for the whole flight."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Comfortable seating but I paid for it"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bogged down. The one from first class came into premium seating to help some people"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Living in Seattle, there is no other choice. Alaska gets me where I need to go with great service, great planes and direct flights to my most important destinations. Considering I have banned United, Southwest, and Spirit from my travel searches, it's nice to know my hometown airline is so damned good."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, so friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew !"
Pros: "The employees on the plane as well as those in the terminal were very friendly and acted like they liked their jobs! No surprise financial add ins!"
Pros: "The crew was great and friendly. Est landing i have had in years."
Cons: "The seats are lime sitting on wood."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Pros: "Staff was cordial"
Cons: "Seats were narrow. I'm not overweight, and I have no idea how fat people fit. I'm certainly pleased that I wasn't sitting next to someone big."
Pros: "We finely got there"
Cons: "Getting on and off plane then waiting then getting back on plane then waiting to get the count right. Then leaving."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Everything is good. Service Excellence all around!"
Cons: "More options in snacks."
Pros: "I really appreciated that Alaska Airlines called me in advance to let me know that my original flight would be substantially delayed. They reseated me on a direct flight to Portland. Otherwise, I would have missed the wedding I was attending. I appreciate how proactive Alaska is."
Pros: "Flight was fine - can't really say much real good or bad - we slept most of the time. Left tablet on board and a crew member retrieved it for me and did so with a smile. Pretty happy with the flight."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Pros: "Nice short flight with no turbulence, comfortable temperature made it easy to sleep."
Pros: "The flight attendants were cheerful and helpful. They like adds the back of the plane right after the first class which aided in getting everyone to their seats quickly. The plane was clean and up to date."
Cons: "Maintenance issues caused extensive delays. Ran out of food options by the time they got to my row."
Pros: "The flight was on time and very comfortable. Nice leg room. I could plug in my phone to charge which I thought was great. They even had tablets that you could rent and watch a movie. Checking in was uneventful - very smooth."
Cons: "The only problem was that we had one piece of luggage that didn't make to Syracuse with us. It was taken off the plane in Seattle and not put on our next flight. We are waiting for it's arrival. Hopefully soon."
Pros: "Really good flight with great crew"
Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Pros: "Crew always kind, professional and efficient."
Pros: "The seats were too small...other passengers were in our bubble"
Cons: "They kept on changing the gates without notice, and we didn't get seats together in the first two flights to Alaska; the crew was not friendly in first trip Alaska"
Pros: "Crew was great under bad circumstances...they held their heads up."
Cons: "The crew miscounted the passengers on 3 occasions forcing them to come row by row to confirm our last names twice. This delay caused us to almost miss our window to get to Seattle (which was already delayed by almost 2 hours). Luckily we had a 3 1/2 hour layover or we would have missed our only connection. There was also a communication breakdown between our crew and Seattle, almost causing us to deplane...luckily avoided at the last minute when Seattle changed their minds...ugh. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE AT ALL."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, but it may have been that I was squeezed against the window because of the extremely obese person in the middle seat. It would be nice if there is a person who cannot fit in the seat to have them be moved to a larger seat. Not sure if that is realistic or not, but it is pretty uncomfortable to have a stranger's stomach fold laying on your leg for 3+ hours."
Cons: "Flight schedule is what I did not like. It would have been good if there was a straight flight from Alaska (Anchorage, Fairbanks) to LA and LA to Alaska (Anchorage, Fairbanks)"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "A 5 1/2 flight and just a tiny bag of pretzels. Bring back meals to flights, with NO extra charge up front or on flight. Planes with tv's built into seats are better. On cross-country trips, movies should be free as well as WiFi. These extra charges are proposterous."
Pros: "Love the tablet rentals... staff were super friendly..."
Cons: "Kid friendly choose on purchasing food items!! Kids are not going to eat brie or Gouda cheese"
Pros: "On time -departure and arrival - Yea"
Cons: "Flight attendants were slow. No pillows or blankets. First class seat separation are a little crowded."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and charismatic. The lady at the check-in desk moved our flight up to help us avoid delays. Everybody was extremely helpful about getting my wife a wheelchair and getting her on and off the plane. Everybody always had a smile. The flight itself was smooth...barely any turbulence and good landing."
Pros: "When I asked for a seat change the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "With covid in Seattle I was placed next to a restroom. I did not see any bathroom sanitation occurring during the flight, and no sanitizer available anywhere."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "Crew is amazing and friendly"
Pros: "Flight was good and crew were good. Nothing very outstanding but by no means a terrible flight."
Cons: "The in flight screens weren't working well."
Pros: "Food was decent. Entertainment was decent."
Cons: "A/C was not working well, cabin was too warm and stuffy. Long delay on take off. Can not hear and understand pilot through PA system."
Cons: "Middle seat, last row. In a full flight, and the passenger in fronf reclines, its difficult to watch monitor, eat, or move"
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Good flight as always with Delta. Sat in economy comfort, so of course the seats was comfortable. Flight Attendants were great."
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "I feel like all the problems the aircraft had it should've been repaired before trying to use it, upon boarding they told us the left engine had to be started from an external source, as a new flyer that was terrifying to hear"
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."
Cons: "I checked two bags and paid for them. The flight was full. I dutifully got in line for zone two. Next thing you know, at least 25 people got to board early and have free bag check. Really? I should get $35 dollar refund."
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Cons: "No dairy free options!"
Pros: "From check in from Delta App till receiving luggage, very smooth and painless process. Thank you!!"
Cons: "Separated from my wife even with pre-assigned seats. And One of the stewardess would not take my banana peel and has asked me to dump it into lavatory trash myself. She did not want to handle banana peel without a glove."
Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."
Pros: "Exceptionally helpful & attentive flight attendant, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."
Pros: "I was still full from flying a Delta international flight from CDG to ALT, so I opted out of all food. They just offered snacks and beverages."
Cons: "It was PACKED. Could have used more space and no attempt was made to help family members sit together on this overbooked flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane smelled strongly of urine whenxwe boarded and for the next 6.5 hours."
Pros: "1. Great movie selection 2. Healthy food option 3. Craft beer was appreciated 4. Friendly crew"
Cons: "1. Wifi didn't work"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours and caused me to miss my connecting flight. Next available flight was a 6 hour layover that I was not expecting."
Pros: "Flight went well and was smooth."
Cons: "The plane bathroom was old and junky"
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"
Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"
Cons: "Left about 2.5 hours late because of a broken seat of all things. Apparently Delta doesn't bother to have maintenance staff on site at the airport."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and incredibly helpful with our toddler."
Cons: "It was really cramped and the bathrooms smelled very strongly."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "There was food listed in the book but it was never offered. On a 4 hour flight, this is too long! Wifi was broken...I bought a $20 pair of earbuds in the airport specifically to watch movies and was never able to use them."
Cons: "The plane was about 10 minutes late departing (not too bad), but the Entertainment System was down for the flight, meaning that in addition to entertainment, the USB and outlet charging was not working and you couldn't see current flight status."
Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time"

Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "I liked that from China to Seattle on the flight itself they took very good care of us making sure we were all comfortable, hydrated and well fed."
Cons: "The Shanghai airport did not open luggage drop off until 3hours before my flight when I was told it would open 5 hours prior, as well as tried to get me to leave to rent a hotel for the night as my layover was a few hours, then delayed Seattle boarding for over 45 minutes, once we were on the plane we were then told we were number 25 to leave therefore leaving us another hour and a half of a delay."

Pros: "Left on time, smooth flight"
