The flight was delayed by almost 4 hours and we were not notified in advance. There was no meals on the flight, and we were also not notified of this until right before the flight.

The whole process sucked very unorganized and not enough I do available

Cons: "Flight attendants too fast in aisle. Not around enough"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not particularly friendly. Food had some odd textures."
Pros: "The leg room. Crew was nice"
Cons: "Paid an extra $200 to sit in the front only to have the back be let out first. Charge for entertainment and no WiFi until the last 20 min of the flight. False advertising."
Pros: "We got stuck with the very back seats, that don’t recline. Was rough as it was an overnight flight. I liked that we had an early arrival!"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable. Online wifi/entertainment on personal devices is glitchy."
Pros: "It was an hour shorter than normal"
Cons: "Hour early with tail winds - all fabulous"
Pros: "Kind, courteous crew. Red-eye so slept majority of flight. Paid extra for legroom and worth it!"
Pros: "One of the crew members handled a medical emergency calmly and professionally. Wish the rest of the crew was as graceful and professional"
Cons: "The plane was dirty when we boarded, aisles and chairs not cleaned. Not all crew members were knowledgeable about wi-if option and food/drink offerings"
Pros: "Alaska is great don’t become united or American"
Pros: "I splurged and purchased the first class upgrade as i am tall and it was a very long flight. Loved the legroom and service i received."
Cons: "Went through the boarding process and then we all waited in the line outside the plane for some time. They obviously were not ready to board the plane which was difficult for some of the elderly now standing in line. I had a planned dinner in sacramento which was a main reason i took this long layover and due to leaving 2 hours late i missed the dinner which had to be canceled. This was very important to me. The 75$ discount given to me on a future flight is not going to replace the time off work and the dinner which will now have to wait for anither trip to the mainland."
Cons: "Found the attendants not very friendly and snappy."
Pros: "I love Alaska Airlines!! They are always so nice and very accommodating. I travel with my dog and they are great. The only airline I fly with my dog."
Cons: "The new planes on Alaska don’t have enough air flow coming out of the vent above the seat"
Cons: "Seats need more padding."
Pros: "Crew and boarding process"
Cons: "No international choice in entertainment and food"
Pros: "Efficient and competent. One of the better airlines out there."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "seats could have been a little more comfortable"
Pros: "The pilot was very good...he landed in Bellingham in a rain storm that really rocked the plane. Great job!"
Pros: "All the staff was friendly and did the best they could"
Cons: "Had the last seets in row 32 Very uncomfortable. Was not given anything to drink for over an hour. When the meal trays reached us in the last row of seats, no more hot meals available..... We were by the bathrooms in the back of the plane. Every time someone use the bathroom the doors kept slamming and there was really no peace to close your eyes or sleep if needed on the long trip Very disappointed. Jerry"
Pros: "After we boarded, the flight was fine."
Cons: "Although we booked the flight months before, and I'm both an Alaska and American frequent flyer, they would not assign us seats until when boarding started. In fact, unless I went to the agent's desk, I'm not sure they would have even remembered. Then my husband and I were split on the plane, and even worse, assigned in middle seats. Unacceptable. Last, unlike Hawaiian, they served no food. I'm flying Hawaiian in the future."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 7 hours."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, courteous service. Different from other airlines, the flight crew did not seem exhausted and overworked."
Pros: "On time/early, pleasant crew, great flight (other than the fact we were leaving paradise!). Also the plugs to charge phones/tablets/computers during the flight are clutch!"
Cons: "Probably should split the board group to something smaller than rows 20-32 (too many folks in 3 "lines"), but I was in row 17, and since most folks had boarded it was smith sailing for me."
Pros: "First flight on Alaska, fantastic airline! Will definitely fly them again. Friendly crew, good perks, comfortable flight. Highly recommend."
Cons: "Asked fort blanket. Told they were only available for First Class passengers"
Cons: "The air hostess made a big deal about using the restrooms on the front side of the plane by the cockpit even though she knew the food trolley was blocking the way to the restrooms on the rear end. They even made announcements about not standing in queue for the restrooms (note- there was no queue, I was waiting for my mother to find her back to the seat). Less than average hospitality."
Pros: "The 52 year old airline assistant, who looks about 32 was very nice to us and understanding when she knew we had so much travel ahead of us. She was very nice."
Cons: "So uncomfortable. We had a 25 hour traveling day ahead of us and needed some sleep. It's just soooo uncomfortable and squished. It's painful to sit for long periods of time, let alone try to get some sleep. The girl in front of me adjusted in her seat and totally smacked me in the head when I was trying to lay my head on the table to give my poor back a break. Babies, a lot of babies, and dogs, not good for trying to catch some z's either."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival. And excellent in flight entertainment options."
Cons: "Slightly cramped in regular economy."
Cons: "Only one movie in 5 hours because the network does not work properly. . A second movie could not be selected after the first movie was chosen"
Pros: "The service crew at the Alaskan service gate were amazing. We showed up 5 minutes post boarding gate close because we had to run back to our hotel to grab a wallet left behind. They waived the flight change and quickly put us on the next flight to the Bay Area asap."
Cons: "Not related to Alaska airline directly, the security check in took a long time."
Cons: "almost 5 hr delay, Really!"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and weren't overbearing or rude like I frequently experience on other airlines. They offered tablets to passbook the time with our kids and offered lots of chances for drinks and food. We felt well taken care of. Would definitely fly with Alaska again and hope to get row 6 again!"
Pros: "The flight was very good! The ground and flight crews were very courteous and took the time to answer our questions and help us to move through the flight process very quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "The only complaint is the additional cost for luggage on the aircraft. My wife and I both had a suitcase and we were charged accordingly. I'm confident that this is a requirement of the airline but it should all be doable if within the 50lb weight limit. Thank you for everything, Randy Patchett"
Pros: "Extra leg room was well worth the upgrade. Flight was better than on time, leaving 10 min. early (well organized) and arriving 45 min. early due to favorable weather."
Cons: "Snack was meh and not really filling, paid extra choices were not appealing either - bring your own food if you have any dietary issues."
Pros: "The flight took one hour less than was predicted!"
Pros: "The crew on both flights were very nice!"
Cons: "On first leg of trip my suitcase came off the plane with a very large dent! On return flight my 2nd suitcase came off the plane missing one wheel! I have a back injury and it's very difficult to drag a suitcase around without a wheel. So now I have two broken suitcases!!!!"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight with very accommodating flight attendants. It couldn't have been any better."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "The Airline did not notify via text/email that the flight was delayed for 2 hours."
Cons: "Two hours late"
Pros: "It was a beautiful flight. Everyone was kind and accomodating."
Pros: "Ticket agent kindly arranged for us to sit together - after we had been assigned seats apart from one another."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, disorganized and chaotic. Flight crew seemed to be overwhelmed and scattered. Ran out of hot meal about halfway through aircraft. When I expressed my disappointment, the F.A. said that there were a lot of wrestlers on board and they got all the food. I commented that it was poor planning and the FA stated that he didn't think anything would please me. He was argumentative and rude, IMO. He could have handled it better, eg: "So sorry. Out of our control, etc." To say that the food went to the wrestlers, and attitude gave me and those around me, the impression that he really didn't give a damn. Customer service training would be a good idea."
Pros: "I liked the direct flight."
Cons: "We returned to Sacramento, and my bag was "lost". The bag attendant suggested it was hung up on the belt. Our neighbors had to circle the airport while we dealt with her. We went home without my bag. Thirty minutes after we were home, the bag attendant called and said they had my bag. We returned to the airport to pick it up because they could/would not guarantee that it would be delivered safely. The attendant said that it was there on another belt. NOT, because I actually checked before we left. Then, she didn't want to give us the Measly $50 voucher. Ugh, still upset a week later."
Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "No pillows or blankets available. Not enough communication about turbulence."
Pros: "I liked getting off the airplane."
Cons: "Look every one experiances problems. It comes in the form of weather, mechanical or security issues that disrupt a flight in the form of delays. There is no surprise when this occurs. So when a three hour delay is thrust upon you and you have already given up your carry on and your assigned seats perhaps the recovery should have been less of a surprise. One pilot announcement, and offer of free loyalty points falls so short. No comp eat or drink coupons on the ground. Still got billed for food and wifi. Drinks were offered but ofcourse they ran out before the center of the AC was served. The recovery happens at the moment not in the next few days you will recieve an email with miles. Still haven't gotten any email after a week. I will fly anybody other then Alaska."
Pros: "Staff was excellent. They were courteous, professional and inviting."
Cons: "Even though I booked all three fares together, we were not given the seats I selected online nor were we even seated together."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1h, you had to pay for food and entertainment for a 5h flight"
Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"

Cons: "food"
Pros: "Airplane was clean, modern, and very accommodating (cup holders, usb port, large touch screen entertainment systems for which they provided headphones FREE of charge, free hot turkey and cheese mini croissant with a mini cold doughnut, fresh drinks). Staff were also super nice and accommodating, flight was smoothe. Oh...and seats leaned back quite a bit more than on other airlines i've used in the past."
Pros: "It's a very good airline when you make a conection because allways are very puntual. Also the sita aré very confortable"
Cons: "The food is so lame. They could make it because you haven't enougth time to eat at the airport in the conection"

Pros: "Dame"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "I have no complaints about the actual flight. My problem is that I flew from Miami to Barranquilla Colombia. I checked one bag which had a lock on it. Nobody told me to remove it. When the bag arrived in Barranquilla it was wrapped in a plastic bag. Upon opening it the bag was open and my belongings tossed around. The lock was gone, one zipper was missing and the other zipper was damaged. Couldn't close the bag. Made a complaint in Barranquilla at the Avianca desk. They gave me another bag. Made another complaint over the internet at Avianca.com. Let see if they reimburse me."
Pros: "Quiet overnight flight."
Cons: "Staff was insensitive to frustrations caused by the airline. Flight was delayed yet no updates were posted at the gate. A delay on the Avianca flight caused us to miss our connections and the staff at the Avianca Club desk was not knowledgeable and told us to figure it out ourselves."

Cons: "Crowded gates at boarding area. Long bus ride to aircraft."
Cons: "We had a delay on one of our flights, but there was a lack of explanation. When we inquired about missing our next connecting flight they said, "Don't worry the plane will wait for you". When we arrived, our connecting flight had already left without us. There was just an overall lack of transparency and a lack of communication within the company/between airports."
Pros: "A relatively short flight in an Airbus. Went in business and everything was done well."
Cons: "Not sure it is worth paying for business on a single aisle short flight."

Everything was fine it was just cold

The airport needs to have some type of shuttle for passengers who have to make connecting flights between Hawaiian Airlines & Delta for example. I’m 65 & my sister who was with me is 70, lugging our luggage from one end of the airport to the other was extremely difficult.

The staff was the highlight. Only thing that could have been better was the temperature on the flight from Hawaii to Seattle. The plane was too cold to get comfortable

I loved the hospitality of the crew, they were a great crew. What I didn’t like was how the airport I was going to be in for a layover closed down due to it raining in the area. I missed my connecting flight, and got put on a flight that departed 8 hours from the time I arrived to the airport. I also have no news on where my luggage is.

Cons: "The social distancing, the cdc is recommending 6 ft but there are passengers directly behind and in grinning us and only one passenger seat empty between 2 people. With covid on the rise, how are you actually doing your party to take care of your customers."

Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"
Pros: "none"
Cons: "ground staff was rude when I asked for clarification because the descripency between app in formation and unclear voice announcements."
Pros: "Check in process & text updates were awesome!"
Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"

Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes late. The food is ridiculous."
Cons: "Crying baby"

Pros: "left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "no legroom even in first class."
Pros: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."
Pros: "The crew are very nice on both flights and they were very courteous the seats.T"
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "no bed"
Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."
Cons: "Signage is terrible. Delta sign out side is obscured as and too small. Construction is no excuse for the confusion. Delta is not readable on the overhead signs and airport is too dark at night. Everything is hard to find."
Pros: "1000s of movies and shows to watch. Plenty of overhead bin storage. Alcohol beverage service included. Crew was great."
Cons: "Baked chicken dinner was gross."
Pros: "We had terrible turbulence for probably 4 of the nearly 5 hour flight. The turbulence were the Pitts, but the plane, amenities, staff and amenities were top nothcj! Highly recommende Delta."

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."
Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"
Pros: "Delta is the best airline to use because they care about you as a customer. They will do everything they can to make your flight as enjoyable as possible. I would not recommend any other airline to use but DELTA !!"
Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."

Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."

Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."
Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No TVs for int'l flight, disorganized and chaotic boarding process, limited snack options"
Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."
Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."
Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."

Pros: "On time flight"

Cons: "I realize that it is a very short route circa 1:25 hours, but it would be nice to have USB power outlets."
Cons: "The crew on this particular flight was not up to par with the previous KLM crew standards. From the boarding, which they started letting economy class before elderly people and Skypriority to the lack of at least a smile from the crew serving you. Copa please train your crew. After we are the client"

Pros: "The flight was on time, seats were comfortable, service on the airline was great."

Spoiler: it isn't. I have NEVER had to pay extra for a carry on based on its value. I was tired and had been traveling since 3am. I asked for a Coffee to wake up and was informed that they are NOT complimentary. I asked what snacks or beverages they had that were complimentary and they informed me there were NONE. Zero. What? I only had cash on me (my card had been lost in traveling days before) and I asked if they would either let me pay cash or be willing to just this once offer me a free coffee. They flatly told me no. It is worth noting that I was kind and courteous throughout learning this. I didn't take any frustration out on the flight attendants. But I was deeply disappointed. I'm am exhausted traveler on your airline in a bind without my card. Can you please just be kind and offer me a coffee on the house? Nope. Sigh."

PHOG airport infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired and even lack back up electrical generators for power outage contingencies that delayed the departure of this flight more than 1.5 hrs. As the gateway to Maui they need a lot of work to meet standards
