I had a window priority seating, and without notifying me they change my seat to a middle seat and when I called to change it was pretty much told, no other seats available... Too bad.

Boarding was good

How do you board a multi-million dollar aircraft, yet still find yourself in an old western tv show. Easy, fly Frontier Airlines. The seats were like riding on an old horse buggy. Hard and unforgiving. The only positive was I didn’t get any slivers in my butt. No complimentary anything. Even the old settlers from the past could rustle up something simple to eat and drink, but not on Frontier. They need to get up to speed in this department, other airlines are starting to give drinks and snacks again for the long wagon ride in front of them.

I didn't eat or watch movies, so couldn't rate those. The crew we're pleasant and helpful, and the pilot got us there in one piece, which is the important thing. Then, I managed to leave my suitcase behind, after picking it up at baggage claim. I had just arrived at my destination and realized it was missing, and before panic set in I got a call from someone at Alaska Airlines, saying they had my bag. Excellent! I'd definitely fly Alaska again, and recommend it to others. Eileen

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
