Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "It was so nice to fly direct again!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Only gogoinflight entertainment. Seats were uncomfortable and they ran out of the food we wanted"
Cons: "Device entertainment was glitchy and I wasn’t able to watch, despite following directions for device compatibility."
Pros: "TSA time in Portland was 20 min at 9:30am on a Tuesday. Power outlets in the boarding area were nice but could’ve been more of them. Flight attendants were outstanding (AK 841)."
Pros: "On time friendly"
Pros: "Clean, newer plane on time with courteous professional staff. All went very well."
Cons: "Not a thing."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late at night"
Pros: "Flight was on time-ish, no trouble really. Call center folks were great."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled with no explanation. My girlfriend was notified of this and I was not. When I called to get my flight details I was informed that I was to fly out on a completely different day instead. After explaining that there was no chance of that happening, the call center rep was happy to help. The flight was now an American Airlines flight booked through Alaska. About 3 days before our flight we both received calls from American saying that they did not have our passenger information. Apparently Alaska just didn't transfer that over. We also now had two confirmation codes as the returning and connecting flights were still with Alaska. Once we got to the airport on the day of I was able to print my American Airlines boarding pass, however I could not print my Alaska boarding pass on neither American nor Alaska's kiosks. It was a redeye flight as well so there was no staff at the check in counters yet. We ultimately did get to our destination, but it was such a completely unnecessary headache to get there."
Pros: "Overall I would say I was pretty impressed with Alaska, their crew and their service. I would say that the part I most enjoyed about your flight services was the gogo inflight internet. On my iPhone 6 it worked perfectly and i happily enjoyed multiple free movies on my flight. My wife did experience some troubles connecting with her LG 6. Hopefully as you go along you will continue to work to get better support for all phone types."
Cons: "I think mostly it is because the world has become so allergy sensitive that these things must be avoided at all cost, but I'd say my least favorite part about the flight was the inflight "snack" service. I don't know where these biscotts came from, but I miss the old days of peanuts and pretzels. I will commend you that the drink cart came around 2 times during our flight. I think that is great. But the drink cart was definitely missing Dr. Pepper."
Cons: "I was asked to gate check my bag, which I did. Then waited an hour on the tarmac while they “rebalanced the baggage” which turned out to mean “taking 60 bags off the plane and leaving them.” They didn’t ask for volunteers or even tell us until we got to baggage claim and our bags didn’t show. The carryon I was asked to gate check will now be held at least 24 hours. Totally deceitful and unprofessional."
Pros: "Great flight, lots of attention by crew. Arrived early!"
Pros: "Great service on time"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The weather was exceptionally bad with very low visibility and lots of turbulence. I don’t know where they found this magical pilot - he managed to navigate the turbulence and land on a dime beautifully. Well done Alaska Airlines. And give that pilot a raise!!!"
Pros: "What sets this airline apart from the others is its aircraft. Charging stations, inflight WIFI and the free movies is excellent. I will recommend to any one I know who flies!"
Cons: "Crew was rude with handling of the beverage and food carts and passengers trying to get down the aisle. This is an issue on all flights, but this crew was inconsiderate and seemed to dislike their job"
Pros: "The seating was comfortable. The flight crew was very customer focused and pleasant. I was wry impressed and would fly with this airline again and"
Pros: "Love your service so much. Thank you."

Cons: "The plane was older then my grandma"
Pros: "Friendly, on time"

Cons: "There were about 50 types of memberships that kept getting called before us peasants could board. I liked the cheery nature of one of the boarding staff."

Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Was late to the gate, and with the ramp still attached to the plane were told the flight was closed. Still traveling, through San Diego and board a plane this morning to Kauai. I sent an long email to customer service. Not a happy camper."

Cons: "Bag got taken off plane because plane weighed too kuch"
Pros: "Florida got hadgood leg room."
Cons: "The barcode at auto check in did not print out so I had to go to the main desk. No one was available until 12:30 for a 2:45 flight. The flight was late and they did not explain why. There were no outlets to plug devices in even though the flight info bragged that they did. On my flight to St. Louis there were also no outlets on that flight. I used to love Alaska airlines, but the quality has dropped."

Cons: "No suggestions at this time"
Pros: "They were kind, considerate and friendly."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the the staff was friendly and made sure things were well taken care of."
Cons: "The in flight special meal there was only a select number of them on board so by time the cart got to me they were sold out. Come on Alaskan should've had enough for everyone."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, loved the charging port on seatbacks, kind staff."
Cons: "Could've used more options on the entertainment website, or at least shown a movie for everyone"

Pros: "The flight attendant was very attentive to our needs while traveling with 2 small children."
Cons: "The entertainment offered was very limited for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "The service crew was very helpful, efficient and friendly! The pilots were top notch. We had some rough chop which blew us all over the place, especially on landing, but the pilot took us in with a degree of skill and smoothness I have not seen before. Boarding was very efficient and we arrived a few minutes early! I would ride with those guys again anytime. Thank you!!!!"
Cons: "Tight seating, tight isles, unhealthy on a body for even a four hour flight. I felt it this morning even after a good rest! I suggest planning some heavy stretching after these flights."
Cons: "First plane had a broken wing and we switched planes which was the only positive situation because it only took 20 min. Then on the next plane it smelled like sewage and yet to find out when me grandma opened her over head when we landed it was filled with sewage not pleasant at all ruined one of the passengers luggage and lucky it didn't leak on my grandmas head or we would have some real problems n"
Pros: "There was a lot of entertainment choices"
Cons: "Seats are so crammed. Plane was late."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment was not reliable on one of our TVs, and the earphones ports barely worked, had to hold the plugs to hear. MinimL food choices, and you had to go to the rear of the plane to get it. Staff on plane was not super friendly."
Cons: "Handicap issues. We were exiting on the tarmac in Charlotte- all crew left us on the plane waiting for assistance to get off. Finally when someone showed they would not come up the ramo to get my Mom. I backed her down myself while 5 bewildered airport workers looked confused."
Cons: "2 hour delays on both flights of a round trip"
Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device. And no power - neither usb nor 3 prong"
Pros: "On time. Friendly and attentive staff."
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: "Great seats in first class"
Pros: "Room between rows Entertainment from St Louis to Phoenix"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no compensation"
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: "Smooth boarding. On time flight"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks:("
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "51/2 hour delay!! Should have brought in another plane."
Cons: "Me 6’ 200 lb sitting in middle seat next to somebody that needed 2 seats for self (pls understand I’m not unsensetive nor prejudice just stating a fact). I requested to sit in last row (of both sides of plane that were empty but attendant said sears reserved for attendants - 2)."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time departure and early arrival. No waiting for a gate at LGA upon arrival - excellent."
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: "Spacious seats"
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: "Entertainment comfort crew food fligjt"
Cons: "Not 1 thing"
Cons: "The video monitor for my seat was broken. So, low entertainment score."
Pros: "everything was on tyime"

Pros: "A nonstop flight, with a friendly efficient crew, met my expectations. A crew member went above and beyond when I asked for a coffee stirrer with my coke and ice."
Cons: "I've been spoiled by another airline's access to screens on the back of the headrest. I have my own hand held devices to entertain myself instead."
Cons: "Flight was late, got a message from Kayak that it was delayed 3 hours...thank goodness I happened to check again, because then it was only delayed for 41 mins, then it gave me an update that it was only 21 mins delayed, then went back to 41! Pretty inconvenient, and it would have been nice to get a text, not just some silent pop up"
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!"

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "No wifi nor power outlets. The entertainment was okay at best."
Cons: "The storage are very small, by the time i boarded everything was full. I had to hand carry bags and i had to put it in front of me which is a very small space already, on top of that i had the window sit so i had no space to move. it was very uncomfortable, and flight was delayed. We sat there for an hour before taking off but i understand its due to the weather but it was my worst plane ride not worth 300dollars. I will not ride american airline again."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time. Enjoyed the blankets and the inflight movie options were good."
Cons: "Cramped, and we didn't get seats together... Hate the system where you have to pay $30-$95 additionally to choose your seats before check in, just doesn't seem fair when the tickets are already crazy expemsive and you're paying for your luggage as well... if you don't pay extra, you (we) end up sitting across from the restroom for six hours of in and out excitement."
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 ,"
Cons: "Got to charlotte with 80 minutes to connect. Sat on the tarmac for 60 waiting for a gate. Missed connection by <5 minutes. Thanks, AA!"
Pros: "Non stop"
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: "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 internet connection was terrible i was not able to see anything that was being offered"
Pros: "Very good no complaint at all"
Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."

Cons: "Cramped seating in basic economy, the upgrade seating wasn’t much better"
Pros: "The breakfast sandwhich they gave me for free (because they didn’t have lunch? Idk they just said don’t worry anout it when I went to hand them my card)"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed. We did not make the connecting flight. They would not provide us another flight same day or money back or money for the rental that we required."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The flight was half empty and when I tried to move a row ahead of me (from economy to economy plus), the flight attendance rudely told me I had to move back to my seat since the economy plus seat was $70 more. However, a reasonable airline would upgrade their customers to first or economy plus to not only appease their customers but to fill some empty seats. Therefore, I had to spend the entirety of my redeye flights crammed next to someone while I was looking at an almost empty economy plus section. Also, we boarded earlier than expected but we spend an extra hour on the flight waiting to take off. I would not have minded boarding early if we had taken off early, but we took off an hour later."
Cons: "One hour on tarmac."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was nice and helpful."

After spending a fair amount of time on the phone with customer service I was able to get me on a Flight to Minneapolis that did not arrive till 1:30am then had to take a rental car to drive 3.5 hours to make it to my destination. I was not compensated for any of this. My return flight from Fargo to St. Louis was also Delayed. Both from Fargo and from Chicago. I have never experienced such poor scheduling from an airline or as many delays or cancelled flights in just a few day period."
Cons: "Never on time"
Pros: "Smooth and positive communication."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "I managed not to use toilet."
Cons: "An epic storm (April 27-May 4) caused my bicycle tour across MO to flood out during our trip. Rescheduling my flight back to CA cost &230..same price as RT. Gouging people leaving a massive flood! The governor of MO declared a State of Emergency yet my trip cancellation insurance didn't cover what was clearly beyond my control.

Pros: "The service was prompt and professional. The plane on this trip was clean and in good repair. The snack was simple and tasty. It was a pleasure flying United."

Pros: "Good communication and helpful."
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly and was on schedule."
Cons: "Overhead compartment filled up and it was hard funding space for my bag."
Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."
Cons: "Massive delays on both flights out of O'Hare... No leg room...."
Cons: "Completely missed meeting due to 6 changes made during flight - Ask for a refund of some sort and non was given - not even air-miles or ticket recognition. Customer service from United was almost non existent. Will not be flying with united ever again."
