Cons: "If people understood how to get off the plane"
Pros: "Very good attention in general"
Cons: "Improve the seats"
Pros: "Flight was faster then expected. Friendly/pleasant crew."
Pros: "Flight rough as we passed over major storm. Great landing at CHS in a stiff wind and we were 20 minutes early!"

Pros: "Awful experience"
Cons: "No gate when we landed"
Cons: "Typical flight delays in and out of Fresno"
Pros: "Crew was nice, movies were fast"
Cons: "I could barley sit in my seat because the over weight man in the middle seat took a third of my seat with his body spilling over into my seat. I had to lean all the way to the right side so my back hurts really bad after I got off the plane. The angle I had to sit in is unacceptable and he should not be allowed to have a middle seat let alone one seat. He needed an extension just to buckle his belt."
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew."
Cons: "PA system was awful when the captain spoke. It was very muffled and barely audible. If there had been an emergency it would have been impossible to get instructions from the captain. This is a great safety concern."
Pros: "Crews were helpful. Flights were on time. Snacks were good."
Cons: "The screen says to Portland but it was actually for a Los Angeles flight. I almost boarded in the wrong flight."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew was friendly and efficient. The pilot directly communicated about the flight and that was a nice touch. It was a very early flight and there were only 11 people on the plane, so lots of room."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and did their best on this flight that was not pleasant"
Cons: "Plane was late arriving at the gate to be unloaded and so we where late boarding and take off and the plane late in arriving in San Diego and costing me more for my parking rates. The flight was bumpy and overcrowding is an issue and allowing passengers with bags that will not fit in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Sin inconvenientes, muy amable y atento el personal en tierra y en cabina... Excelente puntualidad"
Pros: "Staff/Crew were all very friendly. Plane was clean and air temperature was comfortable."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable! NO cushion = a very sore bottom, especially on an almost 6 hour flight. VERY disappointed in the entertainment. This airline expects everyone to have a device to play their downloadable entertainment or else pay to rent a device. This is horrible for such a long flight, when you happen to be one of those people who do not have a device for this. I will not fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "Good.price for a direct flight. Plane landed on time"
Cons: "Seats were so tight. Deli box has gone down in quality."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The lack of space I had being in the middle seat"
Cons: "The Gogo videos didn't work much of the time."
Pros: "Friendly staff with sense of humor. Beverage service even on a very short flight."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Nothing. Missed the flight."
Cons: "I missed this flight because although I was there an hour prior to when the flight was scheduled to take off there was no one at the ticket counter. They then put me on another flight that arrived after my International flight was meant to leave Seattle."
Pros: "Quick beverage service, fast boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline and no lower lumbar support."
Cons: "The idea for tablets as in-flight entertainment is one that I hope does not gain too much traction."
Pros: "I had a problem with my ticket, and before my flight the information desk helped me get it resolved very quickly with none of the hassles I have come to expect flying other airlines. Huge relief!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 1/2 hours. Seats were hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and forthright when asked about the flight and the delays."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay and talking to some passengers who had been delayed from the day before; all from mechanical issues. Also the gate people did not announce a change in the gate until they were actually in the process of boarding. That is pretty short notice."
Pros: "Although Economy, the seats had more room than other Economy seats on other airlines. The crew was friendly and the plane was on schedule."
Pros: "Staff both in terminal and onboard were friendly and helpful. We were accommodated on seat changes due to young children being involved."
Cons: "I have no complaints at all."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take flight due to punishing re book procedure that Alaska employs to basically steal money from it's customers."
Cons: "They weight the value of 1st leg much higher than the return AND they want to charge you $125 change fee. My grandma passed away and I needed to reschedule my itinerary. Alaska stuck to their policies (you know, those pages of microscopic text that is written by lawyers for sole reason of screwing the customer.) I just felt really abused; told them to keep the useless "credit". I booked with Delta. At what point does a company forget who they are supposed to be serving? Perhaps the people that are actually giving you money and keeping you in business?"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Would prefer a snack option that is not sweet"
Pros: "Warm and gracious crew"

Pros: "Staff was friendly, plane was clean and comfortable, and departure was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized - not due to the Alaska Air staff, but the space is a little awkward. The desk staff would announce the different times for boarding various categories, but it was hard to actually get in line because everyone was crowded around the area to line up, so those in the back could not get to the actual line."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "The usual horizon air standard flight."
Pros: "Alaska air cost me $250 because I had to purchase another ticket due to their nearly-2-hour delayed flight. The weather is fine so it is cleary a logistical issue."
Pros: "Boarding from two doors. Good views on the trip."
Cons: "They made me walk very far even though I am disabled. It was painful and difficult to get all the way to my seat"
Pros: "Sandee was an outstanding Flight Attendant. In between the safe take-off and landing, Sandee made my wife and I feel like Family. We were in First Class, and it was worth every penny with Sandee In our section. She had a great sense of humor, was very responsive to our needs, and made the trip home just as pleasurable as our Resort Vacation."
Cons: "There could have been more pens available for the Immigration/Customs forms. I seem to forget to bring my own sharpened pencils, ballpoint pens, awls, screwdrivers, ice-picks, and quills when I fly. Sandee loaned me hers, but there were several people scrambling to complete the forms."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Easy flight. Non stop=huge bonus! Arrival 5 minutes early. All good!"

Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."
Cons: "Food service Leg room"
Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"
Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"
Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Pros: "Nice crew. Stable flight."
Cons: "No gluten free snack options."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Pros: "top notch KLM are the best"
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should be assigned when we checked in. They weren't for the second leg. But, the seats are fine."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Cons: "Great early morning flight."
Cons: "Don't call it "food." the meals were terrible. Also stop creating so much single use plastic."
Pros: "Crew gave specific instructions on boarding as to wear to place bags (overhead vs under seat) so even though we boarded toward the end, there was still a place for my bag. I enjoyed the choice of snacks."
Pros: "36 minute flight.."
Cons: "Not really much you can do"
Pros: "It was early arrival"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Takes so long to board plane"
Pros: "seating, food, service"
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and Curt. Seats still smaller than a kindergarten class, and didn't even serve water."
Cons: "It was not acceptable that the delay on the fight DL391 STO DGO-NY was delayed for lack of crew members to bring the aircraft from NY to STO DGO the previos day of the flight"
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"
Cons: "The worst"
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"

Pros: "On time. Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Didn’t have a requested wheel chair on arrival. Mother (93) had to be helped to walk up ramp..them asked for help"

He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."
Pros: "The crew was great and the pilot kept us informed the whole trip."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and there s no room to move. The seat in front of you is so close that watching the TV is uncomfortable. The seat pockets have no room for anything - a bottle of water doesn't even fit in them."

Pros: "Flight got cancelled after a 10 hr delay. No compensation offered. Told us too bad so sad. Pushed us off onto American and acted like they were doing us us a favor. Today was the day I swore my allegiance to Southwest Airlines. I don't care if you gave me a lifetime supply of flights and the CEO, your business model pales in comparison to that airline. Disgusted is the only word I can use to describe my experience. Save the hassle, use southwest even if it costs more."

Cons: "The Gate was changed several times with very poor announcement. Entertainment is N/A on these type of flights."
Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"
Cons: "We were trying to print our boarding passes and computer didn't recognize our bar code. United employees were trying to help us and they couldn't print it either until we approched counter. We didn't see that much of professionalism on United employees. At one point one of the employees told us to go back to Air Canada counter and I thought she was not trained properly."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Arrived on time. Fast boarding"
Cons: "A little turbulent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"
Cons: "Plane too small to support carry-on suitcases, so everyone had to check them gate side and then wait for them right outside plane. All the hassle of carry-on (carry belongings through airport) without the perk (having belongings available during flight)."

Pros: "I sat in exit row. Since I am tall , I enjoyed having leg room Each seat had a screen and Wi Fi availability."
Cons: "The lack of air conditioning in the economy section. Noticeably cooler in the front an middle section of the plane. Rear of plane warm. The less you pay the less comfort a customer receive? Plane fares are expensive for everyone. Even those who buy economy should ride with comfortable seating and temperature."
