Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."

You guys up sold me by telling me how much I'm going to enjoy the free drinks and snacks on the phone. So I said screw these people seemed nice and not pushy.

Pros: "Alaska airlines much better than United or American in terms of friendly service, wifi and battery charge, and entertainment options"
Pros: "We especially liked the in flight movies which you could rent on a tablet like device similar in size to an iPad. Also, we appreciate airlines that still board the plane by row starting in the rear. That is the most sensible way to board a plane. Also, I had plenty of legroom while seated."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "This was a completely booked flight during Xmas week, and the flight was delayed an hour. Alaska Air did a great job of accommodating these difficulties. When I checked in online they had a notice asking if we would volunteer to check bags for free because they knew overhead space would be tight. Once the flight was underway they announced they'd been able to reroute to save us some of that time. And the Alaska Air/Horizon connecting flight was also delayed, most likely to accommodate this large flight. The aircraft is wonderful--the plugs for devices at every seat plus free entertainment piped to our devices really helps to pass the time."

Cons: "We were very delayed in taking off because the copilot wasn't there. Many people had connecting flights and the crew did nothing to help them get off the plane first or give any kind of reasrrances that they could make the flight."
Pros: "LOVE the free WiFi for messaging."
Pros: "Free movies!"
Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("
