Pros: "Seat. Service."

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."

Pros: "It was all great"
Cons: "All was well"

Pros: "Good crew on this leg. While not always the case, they left the lights off for the entire flight and only had them dimly on when doing their final checks. It was also nice that everybody was handed water bottles that wanted one."
Cons: "Alaska Airlines doesn't have seatback screens and only limited beverage selections on these shuttle flights."

Pros: "This was my first complete trip using momondo to book my flights from LAX to SFO. This was also my first time flying AlaskA! Everything about the momondo app and Alaska Airlines was perfect!! Momondo did an immaculate job of informing me about flights and when to check in, and if anything was delayed."
Cons: "Our flight home was delayed by 2 hours, luckily the Alaskan airline staff was super accommodating. We just so happen to be at the gate when an earlier flight was boarding, and they graciously allowed us to board ahead of schedule. They were amazing."

Cons: "Food was Dreadful. And no USB port working in my seat or those beside me I did notice some people had functioning USB ports but noticed others where they did not work either. Staff not remotely interested"

Cons: "The flight was severely delayed due to inadequate staffing"

Cons: "One of the most turbulent flights I've ever taken. No fault of the airlines....just bad weather all the way to LA...it was awful!"

Cons: "Bathrooms were not maintained during duration of flight. With airlines like Delta and JetBlue stepping up their in-flight service Alaska needs to get with the program. I think everyone and their mothers we're in boarding group C but yet no one was in A...make it more dispersed."

Pros: "Customer service was great."
Cons: "There’s no outlet to charge my iPhone."

Cons: "Boarding via bus to plane. Delays due to mechanical issues at both departure and arrival. Staying on the plane while maintenance is performed. No complimentary snacks or drinks after losing value on ticket price."

Cons: "Delays. Pricing , pay for every amenity"

Pros: "People were as nice as they could be but they were not empowered to fix a stupid problem with an obvious solution."
Cons: "They arbitrarily changed my connecting flight - I ran and made the flight ! But they had already switched me to the later flight without telling me and then wouldn’t let me board MY FLIGHT even though there was space so I had to wait an hour and a half for the next flight"

Pros: "Flew Alaska air - Plenty of leg room and much more than any qantas domestic flight!"

Cons: "No international choice in entertainment and food"

Pros: "Quick flight and comfortable seats."
Cons: "The chicken salad sandwich was okay."

Cons: "Crew! Enetertainment and comfort."

Pros: "I flew from Seattle to New Orleans and everything was smooth and easy. The crew was friendly and we arrived fairly early."

Pros: "Flight delayed - yes it happens. Boarding - walk a mile to the gate ... really? Landing - waiting on the tarmac for a gate to open up in San Jose ?? At 11:30 p.m. !!!! C'mon Man!!! :("
Cons: "That says it all"

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "I continue to like Alaska Airlines and their accomadations."

Pros: "The staff were generally helpful and kind, and arranged for people who had tight connections in Seattle to exit the plane before others - which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 to 2-1/2 hours: first, because they were "waiting for a crew member", then because they needed to change a tire on the plane; and finally because there was an air show happening near the Seattle airport, so they couldn't fly in to the airport. I know that problems happen, but this was a very long day - and I missed 2 shuttle buses that I hoped to take from the Seattle airport, and had to wait for 2 more hours after landing there to finally take one."

Cons: "They cancelled my original flight"

Pros: "Good temperature, got a full can of soda which I like! More legroom than my United Airlines return flight."

Cons: "wasn't clear that flight was leaving from International terminal."

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The fans in the plane didn't work at all so it was extremely uncomfortable for me. I'm an Alaskan I think it make more sense to be cool and cover up if you get cold. If your hot there is nothing you can do about it, it ridiculous."

Cons: "Too quick when getting drink orders - skipped me the second time on both flights Small overhead compartment"

Pros: "It is competitive with other major airlines in quality at a reasonable price."
Cons: "I blame unprofessional attitudes of check in counter staff as the reason for our lost bag. Entertainment required a download on own device, but was not well communicated and on board option was expensive to rent. Food seemed great quality, but I would y know because I wasn't about to pay the outrageous price."

Pros: "Same day change for an earlier flight was easy and I appreciated the helpful staff. Beverages are very good. Love the Tazo teas and Starbucks coffee."
Cons: "Alaska snacks are inedible. Biscottis is horrible and the cheese crackers are full of preservatives and taste awful. Surely there are better options available."

Pros: "Plane had a delayed boarding and no explanation for the delay eas given"

Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight, easy to board, big overhead compartments, free soft drinks and water, seat room better than some, on-time departure and arrived a few minutes early."

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."

Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Pros: "Same exact comments as first flight"
Cons: "Not a complaint"

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"

Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Easy transition through customs."

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"

Pros: "Nice equipment for the ride and pleasant staff"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "Flight less than 2/3 full, lots of room for comfort. On time, no need to gate check carry on."
Cons: "nothing, it was great."

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."

Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."

Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"

Cons: "1 hour flight delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly helpful assisting my last minute boarding needs. Staff was friendly and polite."

Pros: "Short, sweet, uneventful"

Pros: "What mede this trip so poor was that the agent at the desk informed me that as I was boarding the plane my carry on suitcase had to be checked due to limited space in the overhead bins. This is the same carry on that I have stored in overheads on literally over 100 flights including a United flight 4 days earlier. I was the approximately the fith passenger to board in group 3 and after I let her check my bag I walked on to the plane to see not only was it only one quarter full of passengers, most of the overhead bins were completely empty. So I had to go to baggage claim to get my checked bag after we landed which took almost 40 minutes. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "See above!"

Pros: "United does it better than low-cost carriers"
Cons: "Not worth the additional cost over low-cost carriers"

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "Ok."
Cons: "Less time with seatbelt sign on."

Cons: "Couldn’t finish check in process without checking a bag"

Pros: "WiFi and entertainment on board the aircraft"
Cons: "All goof"

Pros: "The time between boarding and departure was limited."
Cons: "It was hot and the pilot sped up through turbulence to land on time. The wind was too rough to fly fast through, I almost needed the "barf bag"."

Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "I was able to change my seat since mine was all the way in the back. very happy about that."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the plane took off before the takeoff time and thus I missed my flight. No explanation. No apologies. This was also the last flight out to NOLA and you would think they would take that into consideration. Nope."

Pros: "Nonstop"

Pros: "Even with a nearly hour delay to switch planes, the captain and crew were very good at keeping people informed of the situation. The plane we were supposed to be on was having mechanical issues and rather than waiting until we were boarded and sitting on the plane until the issues were resolved (which coincidentally happened on my earlier flight for 1.5 hrs) the stopped boarding, which made a bad situation a little less crummy."
Cons: "Being delayed an hour for an red-eye flight sucks no matter what the circumstances, but better safe than sorry"

Pros: "Very nice employees. The trip was good. Unfortunately, the plane was delayed for a fueling off load for 45 minutes but it all worked out just fine."
Cons: "NONE"

Pros: "Very late - no communication from gate agents."

Pros: "Besides being tired and walking what felt like 3 miles to new gate I have not issues to report."
Cons: "I chose to fly Southwest on the way back and for less money I received better service. If you find a reasonably priced flight you don't have to worry about paying extra for baggage or stomach during the flight. On the flight home, I realized that they have bigger seats, your bags ( 1 personal, 1 carry-on, and 2 checked bags) are "free" and they give you a little snack to hold you for maybe and hour. Overall I prefer Southwest because of all the benefits you get while flying with them but it doesn't mean I will never fly United again."

Cons: "I was informed at check in that I could not bring a carry on bag. Therefore, I had to pay to check my bag. However, all other passengers on the plane brought carry on bags. Then, upon arrival in New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive. My bag was still in Chicago."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant & helping. There was a gentlemen I sat beside with a service dog the size of a horse! He (diesel) was a gentle giant. The crew were dog lovers so they took care of diesel like he was a rock star!"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"
Cons: "Late takeoff"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating!"

Pros: "Fun crew"

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "My group got separated, as well as a few other groups I saw. There was no effort made by the airport staff to accommodate any of us."

Pros: "On time. Comfortable"

Cons: "The plane being overbooked, having to check my carry on bag. Making me late to my event having to wait at the carousel."

Pros: "Wish all the major airlines would have more flight options from ORD and MSY, but all went well"
Cons: "Fast and painless"

Cons: "After I booked my round trip flight to Denver from New Orleans I discovered that my mom had surgery to remove her breast cancer on the day I was originally supposed to depart. I called to see if there was anything I could do to change my flight to the next day and received no help what so ever. They said it would cost $200 just from the start. I couldn't afford that, so I just bought a cheaper one way ticket for the next day, not knowing that if I didn't catch my first flight that my return flight would also be cancelled. When I called to see if I still had my return flight I was told no and one again told it would cost $200 to do anything about it. So in the end, I'm stuck in Denver and bought a round trip ticket for absolutely no reason."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great until the network stoped working 2/3 of the way there."
Cons: "We landed almost 40 min early, but was not allowed to get off because we had to wait our turn. So we just sat there with with nothing to do."

Pros: "Nice new comfortable seats"

Pros: "was finally able to get the upgrade"

Pros: "Timely Clean"
Cons: "Too much carry-on luggage slow loading and exiting of the airplane"

Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on because others were allowed to bring several carry one bags I counted 18 passengers that were allowed to bring 3 carry one bags & a personal item to store under the seat so if you are in the 3rd, 4th or 5tn boarding group there isn't any overhead storage available I paid to check check my other luggage so I would follow the rules others should be made to do the same I worried all the way to New Orleans that my carry would be lost"

Pros: "couldn't access wifi. crowded cabin. passengers being loud/obtrusive. long delay for takeoff."

Pros: "Excellent service!"

Cons: "The wi fi should be free of charge"

Pros: "No issues or delays"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"

Pros: "On time and direct"

Cons: "Same comment as above"

Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."

Pros: "The United Airline staff was very helpful. Our evening flight from another airline was cancelled and we booked the next available United flight departing early the following morning. Recommendations from the staff made our unplanned stay much more comfortable. It was greatly appreciated."

Pros: "Left promptly on schedule and arrived on time."
Cons: "Crew cordial but not friendly. Refreshments: I asked for water...flight attendant never asked if I wanted ice and she gave me room temperature water........"

Pros: "Stewardesses were new hires, but still decent with their service."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late with no clear explanatiom, making it really difficult to get home at the time of arrival."

Pros: "They were friendly no matter where you were seated. Always had smiles"
Cons: "All was good. No dislikes"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2-3 hour delay kept delaying, snack was nasty, drink yeah right it was a sip. They take a can and split it between four people. So unorganized and rude."

Pros: "On time and friendly"

Pros: "Same as above,"
Cons: "Same as above, but no snack was offered, and there was only expansive food for purchase"

Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."

Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."

Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"
