Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Super clean plane! Staff was very friendly as well"
Cons: "Nothing, all was great! This was a very pleasant first time flying Alaska airlines. Will definitely recommend"
Pros: "Crew were attentive and courteous."
Cons: "Arriving in New Orleans was chaotic. The airport was fresh off renovations. FAIL! Reader boards for baggage claim were inoperative, so no one understood where their bags might come out. After an hour, we found ours and made our way towards what used to be rental car check in. Found there was now a shuttle bus system to get to rental counters, but waited in line outside with our three bags for 30+ minutes just to get on the shuttle. After a 15-minute ride, we finally arrived at the old rental check in/garage area. Bottom line, it took over two hours from arrival to finally being able to leave the airport."

Cons: "Why board us and then deplane us. Surely they knew this was a problem. Friends flying other airlines didn't have to board and deplane when delayed due to SFO runway maintenance. I am sure the airlines all knew about the construction and should have altered their flights rather than inconveniencing the passengers at the last minute."
Cons: "Crew at gate never kept us informed . Did not board us at time they had posted and never announced that. I ended up just standing in a line that formed that how I knew to board. Seats were way to small and the attendant hit my arm with beverage cart. She never announced she was coming through and didn't apologize just speed by. Pilot never came oup on speaker to talk with us either"

Pros: "Ak employees super nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Flight held for 2.5 hrs for passangers on late flights, crew timed out, then passenger had a taser on flight. Deplaned, everyone re screened plus luggage, and plane. In total, 6 hour delay. Too boot, waited 35 min for luggage:("
