Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Sandwich was tasty. Got a whole row to myself, in an otherwise packed flight. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Sandwich was pricey. Got glared at and eyeballed, for having a whole row to myself. LOL"

Cons: "No snacks , no tv . slow flight"
Pros: "Crew was efficient, pleasant, and had a sense of humor."
Pros: "Planes same more spacious. Crew excellent. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "They did change my flight by several hours which was disappointing as I had a very short stay made shorter. No compensation not able to get me something better. Also resulted in a 5 hour layover in Seattle. Don't like paying for entertainment or food when I pay $1000 for flights. Feel cheated and buckled and dimed. Also did not like no free checked bags. Again I find all airlines that do this insulting. One bag should be included in our flight. How many people fly without any. That is one reason I often fly southwest."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Crew were fairly good however it was probably due to sitting by the captains significant other. First time flying alaska, probably will again due to them having more free stuff then United."

Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "Comfortable (as much as an economy seat can be). In-seat charging"
Cons: "~10 for internet--for each leg of a flight. Really??? ~25 per checked bag.... ouch. That was a surprise."

Cons: "It was freezing cold !"
Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants"

Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"

Cons: "The seats are too tight. I'm 5ft. 2 inches and even for me it's just not comfortable."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and plenty of legroom in coach"
Cons: "No airplane at the gate. One had to be towed from the hangar, and it put us an hour behind leaving Seattle and arriving in Honolulu. I'm surprised that there was a lack of knowledge about where the plane was. It seems people should have been a little more on their toes about if a plane should have been at the gate, and why it wasn't there."
Pros: "Courteous crew, short flight, free drink, space still available in overhead compartment for my item, although boarded last"
Cons: "Other passenger seated in my seat had to move when I boarded, leak of water between inner& outer window panes Loose fixed wing bottom airflow closest to fuselage wiggled on takeoff& landing"

Pros: "the friendliness of the stewards returning home to Hawaii."
Pros: "As always the boarding process was a breeze and the crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "This was a red eye flight and it was FREEZING on the airplane. They did not have blankets or pillows to hand out like other airlines and the temperature was way to cold in this plane. In felt sorry for people who didn't wear shoes or bring a jacket. I had both and I felt like I was frozen solid. They really need to have some sort of temperature control in the cabin to make passengers comfortable. This really made my flight unpleasant and I did not get any rest at all."
Pros: "Free Nai Tais"
Pros: "I love flying Alaska Airlines, the flight attendants are always smiling and helpful. The cabin has plenty of room, and comfortable seating."
Cons: "The Airport in Juneau literally shuts down you have to leave the secure area, and there are absolutely no amenities."
Pros: "Again, everything was great! Loved the crew, seats were comfortable with lots of legroom, on-time....really no complaints at all!"
Pros: "The flight attendants on flight 833 from PDX to Honolulu were memorable. They genuinely looked as if they were happy to be there and enjoyed serving us. They went above and beyond to make sure we were all comfortable and made many rounds to ask if anyone needed more water, food, pens to fill out the customs forms, etc."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat, junk food, junk entertainment"
Pros: "On time. Good price no frills flight."
Pros: "Tablet for $10 with movies was a good deal."
Cons: "Paid for gogo Internet day pass when there was no service and no internet once we were 20 min into flight.... They should make a point to let people know the service is not available and that tablets replace it. Also the fact that the Internet was $16 and did not come with any movies or ability to stream is a ripoff. Also there was a time I asked an attendant for a ginger ale and the response was "yeah this a the trash cart" with an attitude was upsetting. It's a very long flight."
Pros: "Arrived safely. Price was average. Experience was average. Legroom was average. Nice flower taped to toilet."

Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Cons: "Food quality"
Cons: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Pros: "Crew on board was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours weeks before which made the return really inconvenient for my schedule. Then the flight was delayed on the day of the flight until the next day. I did not get to the hotel room until 3:30 AM- 3 hours sleep then back to airport only to have the flight delayed again."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was fast and we arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Waited one hour and 50 minutes for my luggage. The ENTIRE flight had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes for our bags to come in on the carousel. There were no apologies or explanations or compensation offered for our wait. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "Crew very good"
Pros: "Old aircraft. Ucomfortable seat."
Cons: "uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The plain was very old meaning no screens, outlets, pretty much no entertainment what so ever."
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and that must have been the decision of the airline. We landed early and taxied and waited for a long time, more than 30 min until we actually pulled up at gate, also the airlines fault."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, they gave us two snacks and earbuds and had a lot to watch for free."
Cons: "The wifi was useless."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Freezing, one hour wait on the tarmac before takeoff meant one hour delayed arrival. No TVs in seats, no meals on six hour flight."
Pros: "The on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. I don’t recall the fair but this was a bargain and we were safe."
Cons: "Not enough water served. More snacks please"
Pros: "Ummmm the only thing I like is we landed in Maui safely. Pilots and crew seems friendly."
Cons: "We almost this flight because the connection flight can't find an open gate to park the plane. Inside the air plane kids got hungry, we were ready to order $$$ meals and they said they didn't have it anymore. Seriously?! 6+ hours flight and no meal. Then I asked for 3 pretzel and they gave it to another passenger, so they only have 1 left supposedly!!! Come on!!"
Pros: "Decent amount of bathrooms"
Cons: "I was shocked that we weren't provided better and more food for an expensive and lengthy flight. Also there were no head rest tv's. They plane seemed very old"
Cons: "Seats are small, tight and don’t recline much."
Pros: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "much room. great entertainment. great crew"
Pros: "The cabin crew was great at boarding and organizing the overhead bin space. Also, ground staff didn’t start check roll aboards before the overheads bins were full. There is nothing more frustrating than getting on after forced to gate check your bag to empty bin space (ahem, United at SFO)."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the entertainment to work."
Pros: "The planes were on time. On our way down to Cozumel. The pilot let me 4-year-old son see the cockpit. Which was AWESOME, they were great As well as the flight crew on the way down. The trip down was terrific, If AA had this level of service all the time I would fly with them all the time."
Cons: "The trip home was more of what i expected from AA. The check-in process was slow and i was overcharged for my bike, On the way down it was $25 the same price as previous AA flights, On other airlines, it also just counts as a piece of luggage. On the way home i was charged $150 oversized luggage, yet it was <50 lbs and within the size limits. The flight crew was not overall friendly. Very business like and not warm at all. If they were a restaurant i would not be returning. The locks on my bike case were both broken off. the case was not locked. Nor was this done by TSA as they would have left a note as they have previously done."
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Cons: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment at all. Your only option is to purchase WiFi so that you can view entertainment on your phone or other electronic device. For a plane that cannot offer inflight entertainment, the WiFi should be free."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "Got to watch movies"
Cons: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"
Cons: "This agent spent 30+ min to check us in through a connection flight to Seattle. He couldn't find my wife's reservation, when it should be in the same reservation as me. He tried 5 times, and still failed. Later we found out at the gate that he was using the wrong name (same last name, different first name). Luckily the American Airline agent at the gate was more than competent and efficient to correct the issue in 5 min."
Pros: "thay we didn't crash"
Cons: "1. To didn't work 2. Give us pillows"
Pros: "Entertainment system Leg room"
Cons: "Just one package of snacks for a 6 hour flight Delays going out of NYC"
Cons: "After everyone boarded they said they had a 2 hour delay and if you got off the plane your flight would be cancelled. After an hour of sitting on the plane they got everyone off so a different plane could board and take off and then everyone got back on the plane and continued to wait. We left 2.5 hours late and when we arrived at the destination the plane couldn't contact the tower?!?! So we waited another 30 mins...ridiculous, rude, and rather fly southwest"
Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."
Pros: "Free drinks!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "I liked the boarding, entertainment, and food."
Cons: "I did not like the cramped legroom. The airline got greedy and crammed too many rows of seats in the plane, cramping the legroom for all the economy passengers. Legroom in economy was MUCH better on the Japan Airlines plane (also a 777) that I was on from Los Angeles to Japan. Legroom is always important, but especially so on long trans oceanic flights. I am inclined to avoid American Airlines in the future because of that.qa"
Cons: "i didnt like the food tasted like it was in a fridge forever"
Pros: "Tvs on last flight"
Cons: "Overnight delay in Dallas."
Pros: "the crew is fantastic"
Cons: "normally a meal and other entertainment services are included when upgrading to first class. it even indicated such items would be included when i purchased my upgrade. Very disappointed i wasted my money."
Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."
Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."
Cons: "Checkin was a nightmare! Not clearly marked and very confusing at LAX."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
