Pros: "The crew was friendly :)"
Cons: "Not to the fault of our flight/crew, but our flight was delayed by about an hour due to another plane that needed mechanical attention and blocked the unloading/loading area."
Pros: "Of the three flights on my trip this was the best. At least the cabin crew on this leg was friendly"
Cons: "Pretty much everything. But at least the wifi worked and the flight attendants didnt act like we were a burden"
Pros: "The crew was nice and we enjoyed the inflight entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was a hour late and we almost missed our connecting flight they actually had to hold the plane for us"
Pros: "The landing at PDX was the best I've ever experienced, bar none!"
Cons: "The cabin crew from Florida to LA weren't oriented to Alaska Airlines Sips and seemed discombobulated with their service...no one seemed to know who was responsible for specific service options. One attendant had a short skirt on. An in flight emergency, she would have been useless"
Pros: "Premium economy seats were great."
Cons: "Bring your own ear buds or headphones."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Loved the chargers on the seat and in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew and they went the extra mile for their customers"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat I have sat in and 9 hrs made it worse."
Cons: "Cramped plane. Unfriendly staff. Broken seats. Not even a bag of peanuts. Dirty. Will not fly Alaska again. First time and made horrible impression."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and beverage service quick. Really hot coffee the best! Great arrival time. I would consider flying Alaska Airlines again."
Cons: "Alaska reassigned my seat to the back wall. Did not recline. Next to the restroom so an intrusive situation. Only 2 items available for PURCHACE on a 745AM departure. Alaska did not tell us baggage claim is in two different terminals or which terminal to use. Seems it could be better organized."
Pros: "Very smooth landing. Love the leg room, even in economy. Makes me come back to alaska since Im tall! Spotlessly clean, love that being a germaphobe."
Cons: "A little stingey with giving an entire can of soda (refused). Probably because it was a regional flight operates by SkyWest. Ill live, just was a bit surprised (my one way ticket cost $400, and I cant even get a WHOLE can of soda? Like, really?)"
Pros: "Left on time, smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Was in first class front row. I was offered only one drink the entire 6.5 hour flight. The flight attendant in first class never came around and asked if i would like anything else. The potatoes served with the meal were not cooked completely and they let the entire coach section use the forward bathroom so it was like sitting at the very back. Had to wait several times for several others before i could use the first class lavatory. They didn't turn off the cabin lights until very late in the flight so we could sleep. The flight attendant(s) in first class were not friendly. Wifi was horrible and almost not useable. Definitely not worth the $29 I had to pay. I fly this trip regularly and are almost always delighted but this trip was disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Cheap direct flight. Comfortable seats with headrests and personal TVs with great free movie selections."
Cons: "Don’t forget to bring a headphone adapter for the old school jacks. (They’re supposed to have earbuds on the flight but they were sold out)"
Pros: "Movies were free"
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours, then food was delayed after we not eating for hours and hours. The seats are the smallest seats I’ve ever sat in on a plane. Can barely fit a small carry on sized bag under the seat in front of me. Ran out of food less than half way through the flight. Offered zero compensation."
Pros: "Time of flight is not delayed and arrival time is even ahead of the estimated time."
Pros: "Plenty of room. Food selection. Nice crew."
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour."
Pros: "Comfortable seats & food was okay"
Cons: "Issues with payment as they said “due to booking through kayak” and it delayed my check-in and again when boarding... and then had to pay again in order to board the plane. They flight was then delayed an additional 1.5hr due to “emergency pieces missing”. They also lost my bag... and I’m traveling across the country with an infant."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Lousy wifi"
Cons: "No Free Meal"
Cons: "It’s is tooo cold and there was no covers :-("
Pros: "Book the flight with Kayak never let us pick the seat and I’m not be able to sit with my husband! That the worse next time I’ll just book directly to the Airline website."
Pros: "The Captain of this flight did an awesome land g in Ketchikan, AK. The runway is short and this was the smoothest touchdown for a landing ever! Thank you whoever the Captain was!!!"
Cons: "The only part I could honestly say was I wish I booked an earlier flight to see Ketchikan from above prior to landing."
Pros: "Free entertainment on your devices, free soda, and boarding was pretty efficient"
Cons: "The dry cookies need to be replaced. Please bring back pretzels."
Cons: "Ground crew made a mistake at departure gate, causing 45 min delay. At destination, the gate was not ready causing additional 30 min delay. 100% avoidable delays meant I had to run through the airport to catch my bus, which only ran hourly."
Pros: "Comfy and efficient"
Cons: "I do not have any complaints"
Pros: "My beef dinner wasn't horrible. It was mediocre."
Cons: "Where do I start... even though I booked my flights in late July for this late August trip, and even spoke to a representative over the phone about my dog being my carry on item, they never mentioned to me that my first row seats in First Class didn't allow dogs. I had chosen my seats so my partner and I could obviously sit together, but on the day of my flight(s) is when they decided to change my preferred seat which I paid to reserve and moved me into another row in First Class but without sitting by my partner. We had to get our seats fixed before each flight which should have either been alerted to me in the first place or automatically found us seats together. Also, the First Class check in before TSA was useless, as we had to go through the Assistance line anyway and it added considerable time to my trip. Also, once we were at the gate, First Class didn't even board first, but had to wait after three different groups of people were allowed to board first (families with children, injured people, and veterans). While boarding them with some priority is not the issue it's that first class should go before these, then those special groups, THEN general boarding. What was the allure and advantage of First Class? Once I boarded my flight to Seattle and had finally been approached (in flight) by my stewardess about my meal and drink options, she easily asked others before me and listed their options but with me stared blankly and gave me a judgmental look when I ordered champagne and dinner, something almost every other person before me had said to her. After that, getting service was a joke. I had to press the call button to even get her to come by when I needed hot water for my asthma cough attack, and she never even returned to me so I could continue getting more hot water (that I needed). I felt she was doing this out of racism, as I was one of the only brown people in First Class and as I observed, the only one she singled out for this behavior. Also, the in flight tablet to watch movies had grainy, low resolution and all my films were edited for children (curse words were badly edited out) and I think this is unnecessary for anyone unless they are seated with children. I couldn't imagine paying for that tablet and watching such low quality videos on it at a further extension of that cost. Finally, I was accosted by this stewardess again as we were landing for my dog's carrier bag not being shoved even further under the seat in front of me (bear in mind, I never moved my dog or her bag at any time after I had initially placed her under her seat) and honestly I found that to be pretty insulting and humiliating when all I was doing was sitting there. First Class came with literally no perks other than alcohol and subpar food, which I would not pay that extravagant price for ever again. In fact, it left me with no intention at all to continue ever using services with Alaska airlines, even though I have to travel to Alaska often."
Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "Alaska airlines has got it together, probably the best airline company out there. Customer service, punctuality, comfort, baggage department are all top notch!!! I'm so glad they're in Philadelphia so I can come back to this tightly run ship after struggling with other airlines for years!!! My experience was AWESOME!!!!"
Pros: "Great exit row seat! Great free entertainment! Got on an earlier connecting flight for free!"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Delay on runway"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Pros: "Free basic wifi for texts and emails. Great service and cordial attendants"
Pros: "Great flight overall."
Pros: "I love their quick baggage return service! Best of all the airlines! Great on time. Always seem to get in a little early."
Pros: "It was the most alright flight I had. Landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "Normal inconveniences that can't be improved without upgrading to first class."
Cons: "Free wine"
Cons: "Alaska canceled my flight without notifying or contacting me . I spent over 1000 dollars on flight. Once I rebooked they were rude and would not honor the first class seat I purchased. I kept my moth shut to avoid being yet another victim to the brutality of the way airlines and tsa have been treating travelers."
Pros: "Crew on flight was good. We left late but made up the time in flight."
Cons: "We purchased 2 one way tickets and were given confirmation of purchase. When we arrived at airport to check in we were told we were on standby only. If we could not get on the flight then the soonest we could fly out was 48+ hrs away, arriving in Seattle at 2 AM on Monday morning. we had no one available to pick us up, we live 1 hr away from airport. After many announcements and many incentives offered 2 young ladies did give up their seats and we could get on. The flight went well but we were extremely upset with the promise of confirmation and the obvious overbooking. It probably is what many airlines do but not good customer service was given to us. We often fly Alaska but this was a bad experience."
Pros: "The gate agents and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "When I checked my bag. They had to hand write a slip for the next leg of my flight (Calgary to London). This added about 10 minutes of time. It's 2017, how can it still require paper write up??"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Excellent flight overall."
Pros: "Ticketing process was smooth and easy. Overall trip was without incident and very pleasant."
Cons: "Alaska Air in-flight free tv is very limited. Would be nice if they adopted Southwest Airlines free live tv format along with real time trip tracker data made available to your viewing device."
Cons: "The wifi was ridiculously expensive and the free entertainment options were a joke. Add that to the fact that even without the flight being completely full we were all super tightly packed and the absent-minded crew it was a disappointing experience. Unfortunately this time of year there aren't really any other options to connect through to Juneau without going through two separate airlines."
Pros: "Leg room is better than other airlines, great crew at GDL ticket counters, complimentary tamale (though not the best, they were good and it was a pleasant surprise), complimentary beverages, charging outlet, plenty of bathrooms (3), overall great experience."
Cons: "Two flight attendants were talking at the back of the plane. They were loud and unprofessional. Nothing racy, but joking about things like life vests and the plane going down is not something I enjoyed hearing. Just keep it professional and lower your voice. Other than that, all was good."
Pros: "Miami based cabin crew were nice, but they sat in the back of the plane and talked to each other then whole flight. Pretty unprofessional. Chicago based crew from start to finish were fantastic."
Cons: "Miami crew from checkin to boarding were rude, demeaning and unhelpful in this extreme situation. Really rude, particularly the gate boarding pass girl. Haven't you learned your lesson about being rude to passengers yet? I won't be choosing AA again. Your loss, I fly a lot."
Pros: "Boarding, departure and arrival were on time"
Pros: "They seated my husband and I together. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I’m always in Group 9"
Cons: "Crew was terrible"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Seat was ok because we paid more or has a “status”"
Cons: "Nothing has changed and nothing will-services is nothing to write home about, with yr little pack of pretzels-i am happy to get safely to my destination and that’s all that matters"
Pros: "Clean. Rough landing- felt like slamming on the breaks too hard"
Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"
Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "Boarding eas good and crew was very good."
Cons: "The three hour delay and the terrible food served."
Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "We had our passes available on our iPhone to assist the boarding process. Very enjoyable trip with the crew and we plan to fly AA again in the future."
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Cons: "Seats are getting more and more uncomfortable"
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "On time, efficient loading and deplaning, attendants were fine."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of retirement or renovation. Tin foil covered a broken bulkhead in first class. Lots of squeaking, overall very dated. Better than spirit but not to American Airlines standard."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly"
Pros: "Have not travelled AA in a long time due to my disappointed but today's flight changed my opinion. Was impressed with every thing except that 1 cookie and a cup of water. Not a deterrent though"

Cons: "Flight late, typical for American. Usual American Airlines rude staff."

Pros: "plenty of leg room. very little turbulence. fight staff was very professional. staff was very responsive to assist me in finding my passport which I had left on the plane after I had left the plane and gotten to my connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with the snacks. I recommend changing to different snack options; perhaps fruit snacks or nuts."
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."

Pros: "Crew was excellent on both legs. Pleasant, accommodating. Good overhead storage space. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Cramped! I'm 5'2" and could barely get my underseat bag in and out. Very late boarding and departure. Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. And, of course, we boarded very late."

Cons: "Never made it to Atl all the flight was either delay or cancel last min notice .."
Pros: "One of the attendants was nice the other lady was mean."
Cons: "We had to wait over 40 min before we can get out of the airplane. It ruined my whole flight, they didn't have a gate for us to exit. Most likely I will not be flying with American Airlines again."

Cons: "Canceled my flight and regroup routed me. So instead of landing in NY I landed in jersey. Could not find a ride home when I got to jersey. American have done that to me a couple times."
