Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Planes are clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Communication needs to be better via text or email regarding flight status changes."
Pros: "On time and arrived early."
Cons: "Neck massage would be nice :)"
Pros: "Leg room was good."
Cons: "No food service during flight."
Pros: "A very short flight. And you really need to improve leg room."
Cons: "Comfort seems to be up to us, the passengers. You keep taking away our space. And soon , I hear, we won’t be able to recline our seats. And international flights are far worse. But you know that don’t you."
Pros: "Quick and organized."
Cons: "Once we we're boarded, it did take a while to leave. But great experience overall."
Pros: "The air conditioning?"
Cons: "Nobody ever wants to be advertised to (use our credit card?) after paying a few hundred bucks for the ride. I don’t care how many other airlines are doing it, cut it out."
Pros: "It took off on time, cabin crew were good and the pilot did a good job landing in a strong wind."
Cons: "I bought a cheap ticket and apparently that now means on Alaska Air that I don't get a seat assignment until I get to the gate and then I will be given two seats in the very back of the plane."
Cons: "Everything was great, beverage service could have been more timely but everything was good"
Pros: "Good coffee"
Cons: "Serve drinks before take off."
Pros: "Boarding was OK"
Cons: "Plane was small and could not handle air turbulence. After landing waited 20 minutes on ground for a bay to unload Cost 3 times as much as Southwest"
Pros: "Foight was great and on time, friendly crew"
Cons: "The gate wasn't available when we landed, and we had to wait 30 minutes until it was free. Made me late to visit a relative in ICU."
Pros: "Fairly swift boarding. Comfortable seats Cocktails and snacks Free movies Free messaging over WI-FI"
Cons: "The last row in first class may have been a mistake. The person in the row behind me kept ramming into my seat as if they didn’t understand the dimensions of their own body. Not the airline’s fault."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but no explanation was provided until we waited more than 30 minutes"
Pros: "Room for my carry-on in above seat compartment was good and available right above where I sat. Crew was friendly when boarding."
Cons: "No seat room or real leg room and I am only 5’2”. No in- flight screens and unable to connect to WiFi even though I had the app already downloaded. But, again, why do I need to use my own device? Back of the chair that faced me was dirty and had food residue on it— hard to clean with only 5 minutes between disembarking and loaded next set of passengers."
Pros: "LOVED having an outlet at my seat. Great movie selections that I didn't have to pay for. Really friendly flight attendants who were very attentive."
Cons: "Flight wasn't quite long enough to watch an entire movie so I planned to watch the end of the movie on the way back but couldn't find it in the selection :( Seemed like the available movies changed over the weekend."
Pros: "What a nice crew! Literally the nicest flight crew I’ve ever had"
Cons: "Luggage was lost on arrival at Kalispell. Promised $25 refund but did not receive."
Pros: "Customer service at airport was great. Helped us change a flight."
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Everyone friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Landing in Burbank was bumpy and rough"
Cons: "I was given an option to change my seat at the check in kiosk, after selecting a different seat it told me they could not change my seat at that time. As soon as I boarded I asked one of the flight crew in the back if it was possible to purchase a cheese platter as I was really looking forward to it and was already hungry since I was trying to save room for it. She explained it was a first come first serve... By the time the lady got to the back she stood there for a while gossiping with another traveler without even glancing over at us and was holding our commentary cookies in her hand. She finally acknowledged us and when I asked for the cheese platter I was informed they had sold out... At that point I was HUNGRY and tired and honestly irritated that we had to sit there for several minutes without being acknowledged so she could gossip with a passenger. I ended up having to buy a box that I really didn't like but I didn't want to be cranky cuz I was hungry and I needed to eat something. Also, I had a middle seat ALL the way in the back of the plane next to a crying baby, which I couldn't change even though I was "given the option to." I have a difficult time flying if I can't see out the window. That just added to the irritation of the situation :/ I fly Alaska a lot and I was surprised at how bad this flight experience was..."
Cons: "Prop plane made a lot of noise- never was on one before"
Pros: "Liked the overall experience"
Cons: "The landing was a little bumpy and bad"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight 2 days before departure and attempted to book me on another one that was unrealistic for me to make. This forced me to drive the 10 hours home-resulting in me missing a half day of work. Although I am obligated to uphold my commitment to flights booked they seem to have no sense of responsibility on their end."
Pros: "Only airline I try to fly because of their excellence!"
Pros: "No space for my small duffle bag in the overhead binders"
Pros: "The flight was on time leaving and early to arrive."
Cons: "One of my flight attendants seemed grumpier than I would expect. Not rude, but not at all pleasant either. This was uncharacteristic from an Alaskan Airlines flight attendant in my experience."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to check in at the kiosk because it was approximately 40 minutes prior to departure, and there were no ticketing agents operating the counter. When I asked the supervising TSA agent at Kalispell airport for help, he took my ID to the ticketing agent at the gate past security and asked her if she could check me in and print a boarding pass for me from there and she did not. I was traveling with two other people in my party, one of which checked in approximately 10 seconds before I did on one of the kiosks and the other checked in approximately 5 minutes before me. I had my flight booking confirmation email on my phone, my receipt for the $497 ticket, and I was very polite in asking for help and very polite in receiving the bad news. The Kalispell airport is very small (there are just 3 gates), so I understand that the ticketing agent in the gate may have been so busy that she couldn't use the computer and printer at the gate to check me in and print my pass, but as someone who works in customer service I must say I was extremely disappointed in the verdict of my dilemma. I maintain full responsibility that our group had made it to the airport with little time to spare, and could have prepared differently, but from what I witnessed between my group's experience and my own, there could've been a touch of customer service added to our experiences. When I called Alaska Airlines customer service to rework my flight, I was charged a $211 change fee. I called customer service 10 minutes before my flight's departure time, so I was very clearly not late, there was no line at the security checkpoint, and I could see that the other two people in my group made it through security and to the gate in no more than one minute. I explained that there was no ticketing agent at the main counter outside of security and that the agent at the gate did not see any possible solutions for me. To say the very least, I am extremely disappointed in my experience with Alaska Airlines and the Kalispell airport and am truly discouraged by the sense of entitlement that I felt from the airline employees, the TSA employees, and air transportation as a whole. Again, I maintain responsibility for my dilemma, but would expect actual customer service for someone who very clearly made a mistake but is being extremely polite and calm in asking for help in a situation where there was ample time to correct the mistake, especially since there were others in the party that had successfully checked in merely seconds before myself. I know that sadly, my shared experience won't make much of a difference in anything, but I can't stress the importance of customer service in this world where it's a dying practice. I'm certain there are employees with Alaska Airlines that would have handled the situation differently, but for this particular experience I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Free beer"
Pros: "easy access,"
Pros: "My husband paid extra for an elite seat. It was very roomy and comfortable. I got a nice snack but didn't get a complimentary drink. We got to San Jose 15 mins. earlier, that's why. The return flight from San Jose was wonderful. I got upgraded to an elite seat, better than the one I paid for, had a very nice seat companion and got my snack and a complimentary drink. I wish the trip had been longer. I have only had good experiences on my Alaska Air flights. About 5 now. Staff also very nice."
Cons: "Check in staff at Assistance counters either had problems with their computers or couldn't understand reservations. We had a pet for which we had paid for round trip reservation months ago, yet agent took quite awhile to reconcile our reservations. We stood in line for nearly a half hour during which their were very long lines at each check in point and at least one or two agents left on breaks while the lines were still very long. At Burbank the agents were fast, accurate and there were almost no waiting. The flight itself was great and the flight attendants were excellent; but not impressed at all with check in at Seattle."
Cons: "Got to SFO -no luggage. Switched to Virgin America in Portland. Two hour layover - it should have made it"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work at all. Couldn't open any websites on Gogoinflight."

Pros: "Aircraft was very clean!"

Pros: "boarding was good"
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "Flight is overcrowded and they allow too many too large carry-ons, which delays boarding and makes for an uncomfortable flight, and this is all caused by the Alaska baggage fees for checked bags."
Pros: "crew nice... but I chose an available seat and they re- seated me in a middle seat ... this is done to accomadate a person who books after me ??? I dont understand when they do this or why and would appreciate an email.warning me and giving some options if need to reseat ... I chose a seat when thete were many seats available"
Pros: "Always professional yet relaxed!"
Pros: "Once on board the crew was very friendly and tried to Ease thru the trip as best they could"
Cons: "When you make people wait for over 2 hours I believe that you should take and reward them for using your airline it was not their fault that they couldn't board your plane and make their connections instead nothing was done there were no half price tickets given there were no offers to go to other airlines there was no free breakfast for everyone that was on board or lunch. There was nothing that's not right"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Made good time even with a maintenance delay on the tarmac after boarding. Got home. Lol"
Cons: "Plane was old. No screens. No outlets to plug in anything. Not even headphones. I had the first class divider curtain literally in my lap the whole flight. Ratty dirty old thing, if it's not going to be used get rid of it. Had to physically tie it up then it fell on me and I had to tuck it in my seat pocket to keep it off my leg. Lame food service and minimal drinks. Crew was friendly tho. I've had much better from Alaska in the past."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Cons: "I wasn't able to connect my ipad to the free wifi for any of my four flights."
Pros: "crew was exceptionally kind and helpful. I felt they really cleaned up, sanitized, even participated sanitary clothes and hand sanitizer to everyone."

Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "Very helpful and professional crew, despite some pretty snarky passengers. Seemed to go out of their way to accommodate everyone."

Pros: "The plane was brand new!"
Cons: "Every time my husband and I fly our seats get changed from our original picks. I make sure the tickets are linked and they still move us. Very irritating not sitting together especially when you take the time to ensure it doesn't happen."

Cons: "Nothing, Delta is the best!"

Pros: "Crew was very sweet"
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Pros: "The crew was really nice! They were very energetic!"

The airport staff was friendly, but airport management needs be prepared and perform better. Compared to other airport, there was not that many people flying, and still there processing issues."
Pros: "Diverted for unclear reasons. Stuck in TSY with hotel voucher to an overbooked hotel; trying to find out of pocket accommodations after long day of no food at MIDNIGHT was a real downer! I’ll let ya know if I make it home TODAY!!!"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."

Pros: "The female crew were really nice to my 3 year old daughter and made her feel at ease on the flight. Hi"

Cons: "The 27 year old B747 was a pain. Seats are hard, and engines are loud. The cabin is extremely dry after 14+ hrs of flight."
Cons: "Because we were diverted to JFK for "Weather" even though LaGuardia is only 9.6 miles away, and it was 11:30pm by the time we landed. The only flight to Manchester was the next night and would have gotten us to Manchester by 6pm. I had to rent a car at midnight and drive the four hours to be able to attend the reunion I was flying up for."
Pros: "For the first time in a ling time I felt if I dropped something I didn't have to kiss it goodbye. My knees and back didn't hurt by the end of the fight. I know longer felt like a sardines in a tin."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times, didn't land in ATL until almost 4 a.m. Still was charged for bags and when I called in to reschedule so I could get another nights sleep they said next flight wasn't until 10 the next day and there was charge for that. Also my flight from ATL to Boston earlier that week was delayed 3x. Overall not impressed with this connection. Meanwhile another flight to Boston from ATL left and I was not notified or selected for this change."
Pros: "Great service and amenities for a low cost"
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."

Cons: "2 hours delayed"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Delta sent a text which notified that our flight was to be delayed and we were free to seek an alternative flight. Delta was able to get us on an earlier Flight land then delivered our luggage the next morning. Delta sent an e-mail with the driver's picture, name and picture of the vehicle. The driver called to notify he was on the way. Excellent service."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "I'm a frequent flyer with AA; it's very dissapointing that I have missed my connections with AA about 60% of the time this year. I don't know what's going on with the airline, but it seems they are falling behind the curve in terms of punctuality. Seriously thinking about changing airlines."
Cons: "The constant updates on delays was pretty miserable."
Cons: "lack of communication on flight delay"
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "service was consistent"
Cons: "Plane was unusually hot"
Pros: "Fight was reasonably smooth. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Being able to afford 1st class"
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."
Pros: "It started with a 2 hour delay. Then, when the plane finally got to Orlando, there was a smoke alarm going off. We had to wait another 30 minutes for that to be fixed. Then when we got on the plane there was a issue with the baggage and we sat again for another 30 minutes"
Cons: "Not one explaination, or consideration. The attendants were rude and the pilot didn’t even come on during the flight to say anything but signing up for a credit card. Bullshit."
Cons: "How is it possible, in this day and age, that American flies a 9.5 hour flight with no individual seat screens, just the 1980's style middle-of the-aisle screen with 2 x TERRIBLE movies?? I know, there are much worse things in life, but an Airline that claims to be SOOO big and great, this is a total disgrace, seriously. And try to explain that to my kids-ages 9 and 10-who had NEVER flown a plane without individual screens (and my son has been already to 20 countries....yes, we fly.) Did I mention that the food is the worse in the industry in this airline? Give me now a reason to keep flying American, please...."
Pros: "Landed early and safe. Crew was nice and comfort was okay"
Cons: "The crew was a little late"
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Worst trip ever"
Cons: "Delayed hours , then circled airport on arrival. Then couldn’t deboard because no gate. Hands down worst experience"
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "the staff was great from check in at the airport until I landed"
Cons: "I wish the snacks were heathy like dried fruit and nuts"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding. Excellwnt service in first class. Comfortable ride."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent travel experience."
Cons: "They lost our luggage even though we have 50 minutes between connecting flights."
Cons: "Made us wait over 2 hours on the tarmac before take off inside the airplane."
Cons: "Didn't make the flight because the flight to London was cancelled."
Cons: "The drink was terrible, hot tea"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Smooth ride, checked in online, electronic boarding pass, going through security - a breeze. Was little apprehensive because I heard bad things about AA - my 1st experience was good."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful and the flight was smooth as expected."
Cons: "Nothing the airlines caused. I would however like to know if the plane will have screens and plugs on the plane before hand. Our flight coming had it and our flight home didn't and my phone was dead :-("
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "Crew was fine and meal service was decent"
Cons: "Stood on the jetway for 30 minutes due to some issue with boarding. Aircraft was tiny, not enough bathrooms for such a long flight. Dirty bathrooms and long lines."
Pros: "Nothing, boarding was effective"
Cons: "The crew was rude and completely unhelpful. They wouldn't honor my upgrade and than when I wanted a Mimosa they said it was only for first class even though they could have clearly got it and charged me. This was a rare occurrence but a terrible one nonetheless."
Pros: "Met expectations. Landed early."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected"
Pros: "Great service and friendly stafg"
Cons: "Loved the yourt for breakfadt...rest of it was ok"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight itself was uneventful and arrived 19 minutes early. The follow flight to Toronto was about equally late, but construction and heavy traffic made it unavoidable. I saved a lot of money with the Hopper app. Flying used to be nicer, but this is what cost cutting (anywhere) results in - less service and less comfort. We get what we demand - whether we really want it or not."
Cons: "I miss the 'free' services such as food, but we all know it wasn't that great anyway."
Pros: "Quick and fast. Slept through the landing and woke up to everyone gone and was in a rush to get out, but forgot my phone and passport, and I asked about it they went back there and looked for it for me and got it back. Over all good experience."
Cons: "Wish they offered water, but since it was short it made sense."
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service provided by the flight attended. They were extremely attentive and welcoming. I've never flown American Airlines before and glad I had the opportunity to experience it."
Cons: "I've flown on other airlines to Europe before and it felt spacious when compared to American Airlines. I didn't like the accebility to buying snacks, drinks and other food throughout the flight. Flying for 10 hour is draining and the only entertainment be controlled by what the captain provides on the screen isn't comfortable. I may fly American Airlines for domestic flights but I'll surely use another company or longer flights to Europe."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and provided sufficient food and drinks. Plane was late."
Cons: "The plane was late. Took a long time to turn over and the seats were not very comfortable. This was a flight operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was prolific, with many many movies to choose from including recent releases. The staff provided plenty of beverages to help the time slide by nicely. The seats had both USB and 110V power outlets which was awesome. The entertainment systems work with regular iPhone headsets which was good."
Cons: "Couldn't get our meal preference selected, Iberia page for the flight check-in didn't work at all, getting a page not found error. Then after calling Iberia, and getting the AA confirmation managed to at least get into AAs web site for the flight, but now it was apparently too late to change our food option, and AA wouldn't work with us at all, the phone agent event LIED on the phone suggesting we could talk to customer service at the airport to have them provide an appropriate meal option. The customer service line was CORDONED OFF at LAX, and getting help out of their agents was like trying to get blood from a stone. The worst customer service experience I've ever had, even than Comcast. Then, I guess this ticket is economy minus, you have to pay more for seats that aren't at the total arse end of the plane. WTF. Economy means economy, not the back end of economy, but now you gotta pay to "upgrade" to regular economy. I can't imagine what that must have been like for families of four with children who are being extorted just so they can sit together. Then at the airport, despite having been assigned a gate, the plane came into a different gate, and we're just sitting there slowly wondering more and more why there aren't many people around. Finally we have to go ask another airlines' desk where our plane is at (it never had a correct gate assignment on the monitors) to figure out where we had to board. No announcement, no agent at the old gate to direct passengers to the correct place. Upon traveling to London on the red-eye, they proceeded to keep the plane completely dark the entire trip. No attempt to help passengers adjust to the destination time zone at all. Trying to open a window resulting in being curtly asked to close it. Jet lag on eastbound transatlantic is bad enough without the airline making it worse. On the return journey the line for the gate was around the corner AFTER boarding had started, and people couldn't board in any sort of order. My entertainment system crashed, when they finally came round with food, I could ask them to reset it. Having paid for the Wifi, which is fine, it's an add-on service, it was difficult to connect to, my phone really struggled to bring up the sign-in page, and I had to reboot my laptop three times, clearing my browser cache to get it to connect. The connection and payment screens were very slow, which was because the wifi overall was very slow. I am sitting on the plane waiting to hear from my father about his critical surgery with my phone dropping on and off the wifi due to slowness and extreme packet loss (>50%). I had been hoping to get some work done on the flight, so much for that idea, I couldn't maintain a solid VPN connection for more than 5 minutes at a time. I will never fly AA again unless they are the last option at a non-horrible price. This was an emergency trip as it was, and booked through Iberia; thanks for nothing Iberia."
Pros: "Great round trip flight! I was traveling on vacation with a group of 6. We all had no issues. I pray all my flights from this pint forward will be this effortless."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Sticking me in the middle row"
Pros: "AA flights now have individual screens with free movies/videos/music/games. Power outlet and USB port included. Staff was polite, helpful"
Pros: "No delays all on time United gets A+ for service"
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "We were delayed initially because our jet was given to a different flight which had been delayed due to mechanical problems. Then our incoming flight was first from San Diego, then Los Angeles. The arrival was delayed several times. Then our boarding was delayed several times. By the time we we in the air, we were even later. The flight was so turbulent, there was no food or beverage service, which isn't important anyway since that has become a token gesture by airlines anyway. . If this was an isolated incident, I could ignore it but it seems that this almost always happens when I fly United."
Cons: "Boarding delayed an hour, and another one hour until takeoff. I was late for my meeting for an hour. :("
Pros: "Leaving this company in the rear view mirror"
Cons: "Everything was awful"
Pros: "- orderly boarding - calm crew despite many frustrating circumstances which delayed the flight"
Cons: "- Had to wait for catering to deliver carts before take off (this also caused a weight balance issue) - After carts were delivered, we were informed catering had forgotten one which caused more of a delay - While we were waiting, the plane started to become unbearably hot - After finally taking off, we were promised free Directv access for the delay but the entertainment was turned off 5 min into the flight due to technical difficulties"

Cons: "I paid 6 dollars to watch TV but the headphones plug in wasn’t working well."
Pros: "Flight crew, flight, getting to plane and retrieving baggage"

Cons: "2.5 hour delay, people were nice, but I missed my connection."
Pros: "United - standard and expected fare!"

Cons: "The customer service and lousy desk agent made my flight that much worse after flat out ignoring me."
Cons: "This is the second time I have had a flight flat out cancelled to Burbank from SFO for blurry reasons. I was told it was an air traffic control issue. I was re-routed to LAX, which defeats the entire purpose of booking this particular flight."
Cons: "The old old plane that I flew the 1st leg of my trip. Not having TV or movie screens."
Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Less organized boarding of carryon items. Other legs of my travel had gate checked cartons in advance for the last boarding groups instead of just having us try to load it all first when their clearly was not enough rokkmin the overhead bins for everyone."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by two hours to wait for crew that was delayed elsewhere as they were coming off duty and had to presumably fly them back to Burbank so our entire flight was held to wait for them."
Cons: "Didn't take the flight. I want a refund!! You cancelled my flight and I couldn't take later flight. I had to buy a new flight from AA for $255 to get home in time for work. Please refund me and call at 585-727-9282"
