The flight was canceled. They didn’t tell us until we got to the airport. The agent that “helped” us said the next flight was the next day, too late for the wedding we were going to. And then said it was up to us to find a different flight. So, yeah the experience absolutely sucked. Very disappointed in Alaska.
Essentially no attempt was may to ensure or even remind the many maskless and semi-masked passengers to mask.
Pros: "Very comfortable for such a long trip"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "There was no meal on both flights. From Kona to Seattle and Seattle to Atlanta"
Cons: "The seats in coach are tiny. This is not conducive for a long flight. Not only that, but I was seated next to a obese person and she took up some of my seat too. Unbelievable!"
Pros: "Getting off!"
Cons: "No free wifi"
Pros: "Ireally slept well."
Cons: "Second leg was a bit Spartan, but will consider Alaskan air before other major carriers going to same place."
Cons: "The temperature was about 84 degrees in row 8 and despite my complaint, and a adjustment, it was still about 80 for the entire flight. The flight attendant said that it’s always warm in that part of the cabin, but in all my years of flying (pretty frequently for the past 8yrs), I’ve never had this issue. If anything, it’s usually on the cooler side. Regardless of the reason, I was in a premium seat (paid extra $99) and to be so uncomfortable for this 5hr the red eye flight was super disappointing."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to deal with too many people on the flight."
Cons: "I didn’t like that my cup of ice was taken away from me before finishing the ice to hydrate myself from the hangover."
Pros: "The seats were more spacious than on many planes. The overhead bins were larger than on many planes. There were power outlets at the seat. The flight attendant gave generous pours of wine."

Cons: "both legs of my trip were canceled due to lack of pilots."
Pros: "Pleasant crew,comfortable seats"
Cons: "Have to bring your own entertainment viewing system or rent one"
Pros: "I always appreciate a direct flight to Portland. The planes may be smaller but the service and comfort aren't that much different."

Pros: "Alaska is the best airline"
Pros: "knee space the free cookies/snacks"
Pros: "I always fly with Alaska because they always have a great crew, very friendly and if you have an issue they are very helpful in solving it."

Cons: "crowded with no room to sit anywhere and couldn't hear announcements outside immediate area. Immigration process too lengthy and almost missed flight with 2 2/12 layover in Seattle."
Pros: "Great crew and flight; really made the red eye a pleasant experience. Well done, all!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"

Pros: "The crew was great. They were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "We were on row 33 d,e, & f. Seats d & e would not recline. The button on seat d was broken. As annoying as that was, there were 3 unaccompanied minors sitting in front of us. Two of them were fine. The third one on the isle seat was up and down, in and out of his seat the majority of the flight. I couldn't sleep. This was my second flight of the day after staying in Seattle for 7 hours waiting between my flights. The kid was loud and it seemed like the crew couldn't correct him. He just did as he pleased. I wasn't the only passenger who had a problem with him. And apparently the crew did as well. I paid a lot of money for that flight and he ruined it for me. If they are going to fly children like that, the crew should be able to correct them so the other passengers can have a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Ground crew and on plane crew were awesome"
Pros: "The whole air experience is so egregious now, I'm committed to first class and only a few airlines. Just can't do it anymore. I'm not a herd animal and I don't want to do it their way. Period. On Air Alaska it's a clean cabin, they leave on time, they maintain the planes. Amen."

Pros: "Smooth process"
Cons: "No meal given. No entertainment."

Pros: "very relaxing flight"
Pros: "Getting on was clear cut & without hassle. The checked bag fee ($25) was clear & up front. All of the help at the departure gates (both sides, it was a round trip) was friendly & helpful. I don't want problems..."
Cons: "Offering to get me a better seat for $10, it was like I was dealing with a used car salesman. i never did ask (or find out about) the loaner/rental entertainment tablet the flight crew asked for at the end of both flights."
Pros: "Had enough leg room."
Pros: "The flight was on time; it was comfortable as possible, and the crew was courteous."

Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Cons: "1. Board the plane from back to front! It is ridiculous the way it is currently done. 2. Get people to announce boarding who speak CLEAR English. 3. Further limit carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Very slow plane turnover."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Pros: "I like how friendly the crew was"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour and we had a connecting flight IN ATL that we had to get to in :30 minutes. By the time we got off the plane we had :15 minutes to get to our connecting flight. We barely made it. They were about to close the door on us. Didnt really appreciate that."

Cons: "Paid extra for Econ Comfort but still got a seat with no in flight entertainment and they provided no food/beverage services."
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "Air crew was excellent"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Didn't serve snacks with peanuts because someone one board had a peanut allergy"
Pros: "Entertainment is so appreciated on long flights. It was quiet. Snacks done quickly. Took a long time to board, but the flight was full. We were delayed out of gate because of this. Unloading plane went fairly quick but could have been a problem for short connections. Those people should have been allowed to leave first."

Cons: "Little time for plane change at Atlanta. Atlanta rail excellent but plane arrival was late and time to cross airport limited. This was especially galling as I was at MCO early enough to catch the 1hr prior flight and requested a transfer to travel with a friend. There were seats available and Delta tried to move me but KLM would not allow it????"
Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"
Cons: "No entertainment available at all. There were empty seats available and passenger next to me in the aisle seat was not offered to move--she fell asleep with her legs crossed and kept kicking me in the middle seat--I was traveling with the window seat passenger."

Pros: "There was a slight delay, but boarding was easy, and flight was smooth."

Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Once we finally departed the flight timing was excellent."
Cons: "This was the first flight out. Flight was delayed and there was no gate agent that communicated why the flight was delayed. When we were finally able to board, it was NOT done by group number and thus I had to check my bag."
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"
Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."

Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "All service once on board was lovely"
Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
Pros: "The staff did their best to compensate for the 4 1/2 hour departure delay, getting us Panera sandwiches and snacks."
Cons: "The 4 1/2 hour departure delay"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."

Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Pros: "On time. Good leg room."
Cons: "Valet flight, i.e. even normal sized carry-on cannot be stowed above the seat We arrived at the gate 20 min before departure, due to TSA delays. But they closed the door and no one was around to even talk to. At least they put us in the next flight.... Still, as we're not checking in any bags, they could have let us in."
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Cons: "Itthe ground staff (red coat agents) at MIA extremely unhelpful and arrogant. I am visually impaired, asked for assistance to check luggage, asked for assistance and was simply tol to go to end of the line at a counter that was at least fifty yards away. Upon my. O planning of the lack of service as simply to go talk to the manager."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Pros: "Volare con American"

Pros: "Being able to have my own individual entertainment. Staff handled the situation at hand with dealing with everyone's frustration pretty well."

Cons: "The pilots did not show up for my flight after my other connecting flight was delayed and a previous fkight had been cancelled."
