Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was a nice flight all around."
Cons: "One first class passenger was served a little to much alcohol. He got pretty loud but nothing was done to quiet him down. That was the only bad thing."
Pros: "Good boarding process even when every seat was full."
Cons: "More legroom. Not asking for a ton, but at least another 2 inches. My knees were killing me by the time we landed, & it was only a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "Boarding can be little more faster"
Pros: "Air traffic control re-routed the flight which delayed our take off and extended our flight time. The captain was good about keeping us informed about the delay, and the new schedule. The delay wasn’t Alaska’s fault, and the crew made the best of a not ideal situation."
Pros: "Very helpful and sweet staff"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Nothing. Missed the connection due to being on the tarmac/runway for over a hour and a half. Missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything from flight schedule to customer service could have been better. Alaska Airlines is horrible"
Pros: "They could’ve told us we needed to download the app for free entertainment prior to leaving the ground, but other than that I was very please. Alaska Airlines is always great to fly."
Cons: "Very poor internet"
Pros: "Friendly & helpful staff. Patient & understanding."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Spent an hour attempting to get the "free" wifi to work on two different devices on my round trip flights. It is probably not the airline's fault, but with that being said, it was extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Good leg room, thank you"
Cons: "I can't complain, it was a cheap flight, they got me there."
Pros: "Crew announced that we were on the "Salmon Thirty Salmon" plane with the salmon paint job. It was a fun thing to experience."
Pros: "Y'all are the best!"
Cons: "When we were birding they were meeting people board ahead of other based on whether they were wearing SF Giants wear or not. Choice in sports team should not effect the flight. It was discriminatory."
Pros: "Flight was easy boarding, took off on time, landed on time"
Cons: "Was nervous regarding the announcement they made before the flight. Everyone was to stay in their assigned seat due to the lack of people on the flight. They needed to balance off the plane. We were afraid to get up and walk around. Wasn't happy about being placed in the back of the plane because it was so LOUD."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful. Let my son sit in the pilots seat!!"
Pros: "Great price, good flight."
Cons: "On our flight to Seattle there was a flight attendant who looked a little annoyed with her day, but hey, we all have days. She didn’t treat me any different than anyone else."
Pros: "Booth planes we flew with had horrible intercom systems. Could not understand the pilot. Might want to fix them. In case of an emergency."
Cons: "- There was a delay in boarding. - One of the crew wasn’t that professional when it came to reminding people to follow certain things. (We just simply did not hear the announcement!) And the reason probably was that we were the only teenagers (without adults) on that flight."
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Crew was very humble and nice. Will most definitely fly Alaskan again!"
Cons: "Flight attendant could've been more nice. Only using half a coke can then throwing it away. I would've drank it all."

Pros: "On time. Good crew."
Cons: "By this time in my trip, my day had been so long, and I was still so upset over how late we were due to some selfish individuals and an airline catering to them, that I was not capable of assessing the flight. Icelandair did lose my check baggage. Which means that out of three times I have flown with Icelandair, they have lost my checked baggage twice. Another reason I doubt I will ever use Icelandair again."
Cons: "long delay before depaarture"
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was fine, however the customer service at the airport in Seattle was the worst experience I've ever had. I ended up missing my flight because of it.
