No entertainment

Alaska Airlines staff members are super friendly and helpful!

Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."

Pros: "Seat was not comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Plane was hot and uncomfortable."

Cons: "WiFi sucked"
Cons: "A little more room."
Cons: "It was a little chilly."
Cons: "Better snacks. No cost for checked first luggage"
Pros: "It’s not American, United, or Delta."
Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."
Pros: "Selection of entertainment on a BYO-device was good, especially in the movies category"
Cons: "Weather-related delay is certainly not Alaska’s fault, but the 10-minutes waiting for a gate after landing was excruciating after such a long delay in the first place"
Pros: "Good communication re: the delay, comfy seats, super friendly gate staff, great free movie selection"
Cons: "Not sitting at the gate on the plane for 2+ hours:("
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."
Pros: "Alaska service is always great"
Cons: "I waited to leave and to get off the plane"
Pros: "Received a military upgrade to First Class for the holidays...thanks Alaska!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Employees were pleasant, not overcrowded. Plenty of leg room"
Cons: "We were skipped for snacks and I waited for a drink of anything! No entertainment of any kind!"
Pros: "Chargers at every seat, ability to text in air, excellent in flight entertainment options, great food options at reasonable price"
Cons: "Crowded, middle seat"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"
Cons: "Dog allowed to sit next to me. It should be ina crate or at least on the lap of the owner"
Pros: "Had the chance to watch interactions with boarding attendants and other passengers and flight crew. Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Time of flight is not delayed and arrival time is even ahead of the estimated time."
Pros: "Free WiFi for texting, can watch movies on your phone with their app or rent tablets from the airline. Great service overall!!"
Cons: "Could use a heartier snack, they gave cookies and drinks"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable with a fair amount of seating leg room. This was the last leg of our return home and this was a welcome flight after the 14 hour flight we had previously."
Cons: "The process of passport control and customs upon return from an International flight was busy, but went well. The baggage claim and line to exit the baggage claim area to get to our next connection was utter chaos. There were so many people and it took time to figure exactly where the end of the line was once we had our baggage. The organization of this portion of the travel process needs to be reviewed and made easier to navigate. The Alaska terminal doesn't have near enough seating and people have to stand or sit on the floor. Food choices are limited and poor."
Pros: "I love Virgin America and was surprised I was getting on one of their planes. I later found out Alaska bought VA out. The moon lighting and easy access to food/drink choices on touch screen is a plus."
Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and *human*... all of my interactions with them were absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "Cabin could have been a little cleaner. There was some candy/gum stuck to my seat and my tray table had juice spilled on it."
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: "Person announcing the boarding needs some enunciation lessons. She spoke too quickly and on top of (or below) other announcements and even kept talking when she was doing something beneath the podium, so no chance to read lips."
Pros: "Seats had slightly more leg room"
Cons: "Seriously a coffee pot running hot water kept us on the ground another 45 minutes to an hour, very frustrating. There was one flight attendant Jordan that just made me uncomfortable she seemed rude and short even with her co workers. The food looked like it wasn't worth it on flight. Over all this experience made me second guess booking through Alaska and I'm going with the rei credit card instead too."
Pros: "Staff made an announcement to let those of us with tight connections get off the plane first."
Cons: "Staff did not have updated gate information for connecting flight."
Pros: "Alaska never disappoints us. We lucked out with a 1/2 full flight from Chicago, so had lots of room. Each of us got a window. Friendly crew and desk staff. Timely return of checked luggage. All good."
Pros: "check in at ohare was super easy. Also no security line. Friendly Staff."
Cons: "After push back we waited for about half an hour before we moved to the runway."
Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Friendly. Uneventful. Roomy."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "There was no entertainment (movies) on this long flight. Not an issue for me, but I know other airlines typically do have them."
Pros: "Smooth take-off and landing. More leg room than American."
Cons: "The plane leaving Chicago was delayed, causing me to worry that I might miss my connection at PDX...which ended up not being an issue because that flight was over an hour delayed."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "The cabin was to hot. Was sweating the majority of the flight."
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. :("
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Man next to me needs two seats and made my trip home very uncomfortable. I am a cancer patient and he coughed and sneezed all the way. He had horrible body odor as well."
Pros: "Got to Fresno safely"
Cons: "Poor choice of food, flight was on time up until less than 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure time then the rolling delay started. Flight departure time kept slipping and we were about 2 hours late returning to Fresno. Not a word from Alaska since returning from Seattle. Will not choose Alaska to fly on unless as a last resort!!"
Pros: "I like that I get to my destination a bit early or right on time. I like that they offer complimentary wine or beer from local brewery or winery. I will definitely fly again with Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "They don't offer anything for entertainment but that's ok because I bring my own. That's pretty much it on the negative. Which really isn't really negative."
Pros: "Was seated by a very nice couple."
Cons: "The plane was crowded. I was very upset to find that on a 6 hour flight I not only had to pay for entertainment I didn't even get to finish watching what I paid for. Was really pissed that on a 6 hour flight I had to starve because you also charge for food! Didn't have a credit card only cash that was refused so I was unable to eat."

Flight crew was not always respectful when addressing travelers. I understand having a bad day, but the individualized sass and snarky attitude is unprofessional.

Check in in Cancun took at least 2 1/2hours standing in line at Delta.

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "More arm space and leg room for cabin"
Cons: "Excellent experience during covid times."
Pros: "Super respctful"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because one or more of the crew were late. I would suggest that when you board a large flight, start from the rear of the plane, not the front. Having to go past everyone to get to your seat is time consuming and somewhat stressful. The food was super gross. The so called beef bulgogi was not appetizing at all. For breakfast, the food was disgusting."
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing, and boarding was right on time."
Cons: "It was pretty hot on the airplane. Could have regulated the temperature a bit better."
Pros: "Nice on board crew."
Cons: "More arm & leg room in basic seating. Tray tables are flimsy and seem worn."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulty. Late Then missed connecting flight. 4 hours in a hotel. Then back to the airport the next day. Why can’t airline keep planes in good condition?"
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, plane clean, snacks good."
Cons: "Small plane but that’s not really fixable"
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Cons: "I was flying standby. I checked the list on line and my name was number 5. I get to the gate and there’s just a handful of customers. The agent said there was enough seats for the standbys I wait and wait for my name to be called but no luck. My name wasn’t cleared yet. Finally I was the next to last one to get a seat. The gate agent who didn’t ask for my name tells me I was all the down at the bottom of the list. While I am glad that I got on I wish I knew what method is use to get your name on the stand by list?"
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."
Pros: "The seats had plenty of leg room and the crew was was very kind."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and I was seated in the only row of the aircraft without entertainment for a four hour flight. Then on top of that the passenger next to me removed his shoes and you could smell his feet from a mile away but the flight attendants never requested for him to replace his shoes."
Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "Great staff, plenty of room, efficient snack and drink delivery, effluent boarding"
Pros: "The movie options."
Pros: "They offered some snacks"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that they had no backup pilots for the plane. We waited 12 hours!!!!!! For a flight"
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Took two business days to respond."
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was great. The plane was great. I would highly recommend Delta over every other airline for travel within the USA."
Cons: "The airport in Minneapolis is ridiculous. If you get a short lay-over, then hope you did your sprint training. I avoid this airport as much as possible. Had no choice with this flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was tiny"
Pros: "Fast boarding, we even left early! Very kind crew. Flight was WAY shorter than it said on our itinerary!"
Cons: "No TVs and couldn’t get wifi to work. Small plane, slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"
Pros: "Crew worked incredible well with all the passengers that lost connection flights."
Cons: "Same thing, flight was delayed about three hours."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats are too close together."
Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "I got to destination. Baggage claim was quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to waiting for a tardy flight attendant. Landing felt a little hard. No announcement about baggage carousel prior to disembarking."
Pros: "Pilot kept us updated on the weather siuation."
Cons: "I wish the Wi-Fi was free. It's very expensive. Beverage service on those carts is slow. It's time to update both those items."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Pros: "Service was ok food also crew was friendly"
Cons: "Check in bags and carry on policy and space on airplane is stupid"
Cons: "My original flight from IND to LGA was cancelled due to weather and I was rebooked for the next day. I was forced to spend a night in a hotel near the airport. Then my flight the next day kept being delayed, first 5 min, then 20, then 40, etc until 2.5 hrs. Since the delays kept increasing, I decided to rebook on another flight with a very tight connection in Detroit--the only other option. When my flight arrived, the other fight was already boarding and I ran to make it. Luckily I got to the gate in time, just before the door closed. The original flight ended up with a 3.5 hr delay!!! That is unacceptable."
Cons: "Spent $25 on Main Cabin Preferred when I thought it was Economy Comfort. Did not really change my experience and i'm out $25."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment on this flight. But then I didn't expect any food, drinks or entertainment"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "I liked being in a lie flat seat"
Cons: "The seat, tray table and storage pouches were filthy wiht crumbs,stains, debris on my seat. A substandard experience and shows disrespect to paying customers, for whom airlines exist!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Computer glitch at boarding"

Plane smelled a little funny. Flight was 30 minutes shorter than expected, but gate was occupied when we arrived. Staff was great.

I had pretzels and there was not entertainment on the flight

Cons: "Same old tiny uncomfortable commuter jet."
Cons: "First time we have flown First Class on American Airlines and service was outstanding and perfect! Thank you for an amazing experience!!"
Pros: "Timelness"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "When the delayed flight landed, the crew should help expedite those connecting to other flights. They should announce our connecting gates so that we don’t have to look it up."
Cons: "2 hour delays on both flights of a round trip"
Cons: "4 hour plane availability delay - of course planned on weather but not planning"
Pros: "You got us there safely."
Cons: "Not sure who is at fault for running out of de-ice solution, but keeping us sitting on the tarmac without air ventilation for almost 3 hours... with only an apology and a last minute glass of water? that was terrible customer service."
Pros: "Very good crew."
Cons: "Hate the kiosk check in"
Pros: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."
Pros: "One flight attendant was very nice and petsonable."
Cons: "Already checked in and then flight canceled 10 hours before departure. Paid for preferred seating but rebooked on smaller aircraft full and had to sit in last row. Not happy and arrived 2 hours latet than original flight. Tried to explain this at gate to American employee but she told me to sit down until name was called. Probably could have had better seats earlier if she could have listened to my issue but she wouldn't listen to me. Didn't even have the chance to tell her what had happened."
Pros: "They got me there on time"
Cons: "Long delay getting off STL-CLT. Made it to gate for CLT-ROC. Then, crew delay. The usual crammed interior, cheap snacks, feeling about like a public bus"
Pros: "A cheap option to upgrade to 1st was offered that ended up being a net 0 cost upgrade for me so I took it. Comfortable on an old (but oh so nice) aircraft."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes early to the airport but then had to sit at a remote pad so that we ended up being 5 minutes late to the gate. A short transfer was made even more difficult, and a massive waste if time and fuel sitting and waiting. Figure out your gates early and better, and move around if needed. At the very least, bring up some stairs and buses to get passengers to the terminal and then tow the aircraft in when you have a gate available."
Pros: "I fflew Delta last Nov. Had meals movies dinner inks etc. American I am serv d beverages no meals and no movies. Getting ridiculous"
Pros: "Great seats in first class"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Fast"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and boarding was a pain. Not sure why you wouldn’t want to board from the back to front. Weather grounded us at our loading airport so we were stuck with the option of staying the flight or going in the lobby."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "The people where great. But this does not make up for what happened."
Cons: "1. Undisclosed LAX bus ride time limit to get to gate. BS 2. Undisclosed LAX bus ride to gate. BS 3. Alaska Airlines never explained at ticket purchase that it was at American Airline Terminal. Caused a 8 min walk to AA terminal from Alaska terminal. BS 4. None of this was explained at ticket purchase. Not happy. Probably will never try to fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "I was so happy I could check in online and boarding was a breeze. I actually got to sit by the window when my original seat was in the middle. So nice of the ladies to suggest it to me."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The video monitor for my seat was broken. So, low entertainment score."
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Cons: "good"
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."
Pros: "Smooth - trouble free - calm process"
Pros: "Arrived to the airport well ahead of time and encountered lines so long that we were not able to make our flight. Only 2 attendants working and so many people had to be rebooked we didn't get another flight for 3 days. Did I mention I was traveling with a baby?"
Pros: "Overall it was very comfortable and smooth flight."
Cons: "The airplane was looked new, clean and the seats were very comfortable."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great and very friendly!"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't very good so I couldn't access the in flight entertainment I also had my own snacks so I didn't buy any food"
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Airline"
Cons: "Boarding took forever, the flight was over 2 hours late which caused me to miss my connecting flight and my military orders were not honored - I still had to pay extra to take all my gear back to my duty station. Never had that issue with any other American airline."
Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."
Pros: "I don't know how airlines get away with all the stipulations and regualations they have in the buying process there is. Otho g I like about the scam artist they are"
Cons: "The fact they they can just make it a policy and then because the employees have to have a job and enforce it blows my mind. 200 dollar transfer fee plus the difference in the ticket when it's over two weeks in advance. You people are scam artist"
Pros: "You provide me with the best ticket prices and to me that was the the most important part of of the trip thx"
Cons: "The airlines charging for your luggage"
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"
Pros: "After boarding and a 20 min wait seated we were told we had to leave the plane because of the broken something . It was fixed and we were off about two hours late. Fresno is a beautiful easy airport."
Pros: "Frankly there isn't much to say here. After 7 flights in 2 weeks there was only 1 flight with great staff that actually cared about the customers and looked like they enjoyed their job. The rest treated guests with indifference at best."
Cons: "Customer service is dreadful, the planes are so old they still have cigarette lighter charges in first (but of course no adapters), no food/snacks of any significance, and they seemingly cancel flights at a whim with basically no staff to help re-book the lines of guests that have been disrupted. I pity those who loose luggage AA baggage services are flooded with lost baggage they just don't care any more. Seriously its embarrassing how little they care about customer service."
Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."
Pros: "I used points to bump up this flight to first class and was very grateful for the delicious food and extra room. We received good service from attendants who checked on us often to bring extra drinks and answer questions. I see now that it's worth the extra money/points to fly first class. Thank you for making it a great experience!"
Cons: "I felt the flight attendant who first served me was a little brash. We were seated for what seemed like extra time before takeoff so I ordered a mimosa when asked if I wanted a drink. She seemed reluctant to give it to me so I wish she had explained that there wasn't much time or explained any hesitations that she was maybe trying to hide from her expressions. I was only 1/3rd finished with the drink when she practically grabbed it from my hands and said she had to take it away. A warning would have been nice, I could have finished it faster. Then during the flight when I ordered another one so I could actually enjoy it, she still seemed hesitant/judgmental and finally said "that will be the last champagne the plane has." It was an awkward experience that I didn't appreciate. However, this same attendant seemed more friendly throughout the flight and was kind and helpful."
Cons: "Would be nice to know ahead of time if flight is equipped with an in seat television so as to be prepared to bring headphones."
Pros: "We arrived safe."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Waited in the customer service line for 3+ hours just to not be helped. Had to rent a car for more money than I spent on my round trip ticket without reimbursement. United employees give you the run around so they don't have to deal with you anymore and none of them are on the same page. Definately lost a loyal customer after this nightmare of an experience."

Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card.

I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."
Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"

Check in process

They charge you ridiculous amounts for a carry on and a checked bag (almost the same price as the flight itself). Volaris has got to be the most uncomfortable airline I've ever been on. There is barely any leg room, the seats don't recline even though there is a button, and there is no way to get any work done, as not even a laptop fits on the tray-table.

Pros: "easy boarding, great crew(though very tired), seats were finally comfortable, not like sitting on wood"
Cons: "best flight ever with volaris!!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly But people at checking in are really mean. Nasty people you should get another people with better trainings, etc. They were asking personal questions and abusing just because of their power. Not good at all, one on the worst experience"
Cons: "Personal at checking in. They have the worst attitude ever"
Pros: "Super rude, starting from the check-in counter to security inspection to boarding the plane- every attendant we asked a question to or asked for assistance had no clue what to do or respond."
Cons: "Get better-qualified personnel."
Cons: "It was a little too warm"
Pros: "Nothing Horrible trip, horrible service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5hrs Hard to get clear information about the delay and when we were actually going to leave. Horrible wifi in Mexico Airport. They had all passengers board the plane and then decided to refuel, so everyone sat in the airplane for 1 hour at the gate before leaving. We didn’t even get a drink of water on the plane. We were sitting in the last row in the back of the plane and when the attendant got to us it was time to land so she just skipped our row. I highly dis recommend Volaris."
Pros: "Need remplace the seats and need more space"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Airline reps were always available"
Cons: "They flew me from Veracruz to Guadalajara 3 hours later than scheduled. Instead of making an effort for several passangers to catch the flight from Guadalajara to Fresno (also ran by Volaris) they would not let us board the Fresno flight; even though the gate was still open and the last passengers were boarding. Instead, Volaris sent me to Los Angeles (they gave me the option of flying to Fresno, but 5 days later. I don't live in Guadalajara and that was not my final destination). In Los Angeles, I had to take a cab from the LAX to the Bus Station, take the bus to Fresno (spend all night on the bus) and take a cab to the Fresno airport to pick up my automobile. Thank you Volaris . . . great job!"
Pros: "No frills. To the point. Quick 2 hour flight, nice plane."
Cons: "Take off was delayed"
Cons: "The flights took off over an hour late. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and didn’t recline., even ven a little bit. I am 5’6” and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."
Pros: "The crew were absolutely amazing. They offered to tag my carry on free of charge as baggage. No issues whatsoever with stroller or car seat. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "The plane itself was uncomfortable and would prefer complimentary snack or beverages."
Cons: "El equipaje"
Cons: "Everything. The plane was disgusting, garbage from the last flight. We were delayed too."
Pros: "Horrible attitude and incompetent..did not properly tag luggage causing us to miss next 2 flight segments. DISASTER"
Pros: "volaris charged me 20 usd more only because I had 11 kg of luggage , the limit was 10 kg"
Cons: "The airplane wasn’t clean, spaces very reduced, bad service... that’s the problem with cheap companies but Volaris can do better"
Pros: "Volaris did good, is you who did terrible, I make the reservation since March and even a day before the trip you told all is good, the night before I found reservation was canceled since March, I had to buy new tickets old prices $87, new prices $500.$410 extra dollars Because of you"
Cons: "Check with the airline the status of every reservation in a daily basis and let me know that you can’t fulfill the contract"
Cons: "There was hardly any space under the seats and between each row so it was pretty cramped. Because of this, the flight was not very comfortable."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The seat was awful! No cushion at all. Very old like you are sitting on a piece of hard wood for 3 hours. Causes unnecessary back pain. No leg room or arm room. Won’t travel Volaris again."
Cons: "Seating"
Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "My flight supposed to be $220.00 but when I got to the airport the final price was $340.00. It was rather unfortunate to learn that they lied with their online prices. It was until I was at the terminal did they start charging me for everything that was not included in the online bill."
Pros: "Flight left on time! No hassle with carryon"
Cons: "I hate paying for water. Legroom was ridiculously short."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "More options to fly out of Chihuahua because Volaris is horrible."
Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"
Pros: "The flight was punctual."
Cons: "The crew was to loud and annoying. I got a window seat without a window and was not notified (Seat 30F). If there was mention of no window seat I would have purchased a window seat."
Pros: "Good basic airline ALWAYS reserve your seat ahead of time"
Cons: "Softer seats more like cement"
Cons: "Light free snack"
Pros: "That was fast"
Cons: "The seat is not at all confortable"
Cons: "Very bumpy flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for a suitcase that was a couple of pounds above the 10 Kgs, and a small tube where I bring my fishing pole (paid as much as a large suitcasewhen it only weighted 1.2 lbs). In the previous flight they also charged us for printing the boarding passes (we we unable to do it online),"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "gates changed multiple times, got different information from different people. had to shuttle to the plane. over an hour delayed but no notifications of delay were ever updated"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "no entertainment choices offered - RADIO OR VIDEO."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "They force to choose seats (with extra charge), they charge for kids, for stroller, for baby package, for check-in in gate, for carry-on, for lougage, don't breathe too much air they might charge you extra."
Pros: "The plane was great and so was the flight. I like that they save the overhead compartments for the people who are sitting in those seats."
Cons: "It would be good to be able to charge my cell phone on board"
Pros: "Again, good time and no delays."
Cons: "Sitting in the first row was a bit difficult. Could not sleep, the crew made so much noise. My handbag had to be put in the bin, I asked for it to get my pen to fill a form out for immigration. Because I don't like to stand up while the plane is flying, I put it under my seat. One of the crew made a loud comment that I was hiding it. I did not appreciate that at all."
Pros: "Good time and no delays."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The workers telling me I can’t listen to music"
Pros: "First time in my life that I've never been offered even a glass of water on a flight. I know this is a budget friendly airline, but on a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles to Guadalajara I would have appreciated a small cup of water."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."
Pros: "On time, arrived early, good price, good service"
Cons: "Got to Acapulco too early in the morning to check in the hotel"
Cons: "Super mala, organización, aviones pequeños"
