Cons: "Politely asked boarding agent Michelle if my wife could be put in the isle because she's pregnant and needs to get up a lot.

Pros: "Easy fast boarding fast flight home"
Pros: "Economy is just cramped. That's the way it is"

Cons: "I was sitting in 29C (aisle seat) and 2 of the 3 crew members kept running into my aisle-side shoulder and arm.

We really appreciated the excellent services and the customer-oriented attitude. I definitely will choose to fly with Alaska Airlines in the future."

Pros: "After an absolutely horrible experience with United, we ended up switching and booking a last minute flight on Alaska. So glad we did, they got us there on time, the plane was comfortable, snacks were good and the tablets for movie/TV watching were great. Most importantly it was a direct flight instead of 3!!!"
Pros: "What a pleasure to fly with Alaska Airlines. Have yet to feel like I was an imposition with traveling with AA. Thanks for letting me feel like a client rather than a bother. Virgin Air and AA will be a happy merge, I believe. Keep your work ethic and soar even higher!"
Cons: "Not a thing. 15E and 15F even!"
Pros: "Very friendly helpful ground crew in Lihue and aboard jet. Difficult to sleep on a red eye flight without pillow, blanket."
Pros: "Easy to board, got to destination on time, friendly crew."

Cons: "Jammed in seats, the inevitable tiny bag of pretzels, and no free entertainment if you did not have an iPad or other device. Long trip without anything."
Pros: "Actually Alaska was just a connecting flight to Emirates from Seattle to Nairobi, but comments apply to all flights."
Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful. Also a representative handed each passenger a chit with instructions for a discount on a future flight. Again a thought act instead of a flat response!"
Cons: "Lack of space between passengers."
Pros: "Everything was on time with departure and arrival and fly was very smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that our 5 hour flight did not provide a complimentary meal. Also half of the crew were friendly but the other half was not so much. They also lack in cleaning up soon after serving drinks, snacks, etc.for we had to hold on to our garbage for a while. It would also be appreciated if they can preannounce and let us know ahead of time of what they're going to do i.e. when it's ok to get out of seat and when not."
Pros: "More leg room and seats are very comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and snotty."

Pros: "The flight was great and very relaxing."
Cons: "There actually wasn't anything I could say I dislike about it."
Pros: "Everything was pretty smooth, on time, as expected, no problems."
Cons: "The entertainment access from my device was unusable due to unavailability of downloading the proprietary American Airlines APP. I had the GoGo In Flight app installed but that wasn’t enough. A better system should be in place."
Pros: "Mostly pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "Better gate agent and mechanics"
Pros: "The crew and the movies. It was an overall comfortable flight."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"

Cons: "Boarded faster and a bigger plane to put roller bags in the over head bin instead of checking them"
Cons: "Food options were just snacks. On a 4 hour flight? What??"
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "That you have to pay extra for entertainment, that you have to have your own device, and that the food was mediocre"

Cons: "I'm 6ft2in not enough leg room"
Pros: "Experience was fine, Flight was late leaving & plane seamed pretty old. The crew however is was very good."
Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."
Pros: "Pilot sounded nice"
Cons: "Airline Attendant ride. Not 2 me. I stayed away from her seeing how she talked to other patrons. Yelling “get with the program. I’ll be watching you” for simple mistakes made before door of plane closed. Tried to talk elderly woman out of tea because she was lazy and didn’t bring hot water on her cart. Eventually brought it but why try to talk her out of it. Heavy set dark brown tall Attendant on flight 5874 Mesa Airlines. Lost my luggage. More and more friends, family & 1 flight expert says AA gets more complaints. Will try booking with another airline carrier in future unless absolute emergency to take AA. Worth $40.00 or more extra to get friendly service."
Pros: "American Airlines was fantastic. ALL personnel were professional yet friendly. They will be my airline of choice in the future."
Cons: "WEATHER! Any problem we experienced was weather related."
Cons: "Flight was 3- 4 hours late No food No reimbursement"
Cons: "American Airlines nor British airways honor kayaks booking codes in the event of an emergency"
Cons: "If you get to the airport too early and there aren't any American Airlines flight before yours you have to wait for the crew to get there to open the counter and check you in. Just a couple pounds over the 50lbs and you get screwed with a $100 fee. There is very little AC in the airport and very few outlets so if you have to wait for a flight make sure to charge your devices prior to getting to the airport. WiFi on this an all other American Airlines flights I've recently taken has been useless - almost impossible to use."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and quick."
Cons: "Lost our baggage while on our honeymoon. We were told it would show up to our destination the following morning and we would receive a call upon its arrival. Baggage didn’t show up until three days later and we had to retrieve it at the airport. Was given incorrect information numerous times, also several of the customer service agents were very impolite and not helpful whatsoever. Not a great experience, will do my best to avoid flying AA in the future."
Pros: "The crew and their understanding about our frustrations with delays"
Cons: "Repeated delays. Not AA’s fault."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for 45 minutes. Grrr"
Pros: "On-bard snacks and service"
Pros: "I had a great experience on my flight and the staff could NOT have done a better job. I want to thank everyone from the boarding gate to the deboarding gate, for such a nice experience. But listen up Americans, the entertainment would’ve been better, if one: the internet was free like it was in MEXICO! And two: the sound worked for the movies. (That might’ve been my fault... or my phone’s fault). But, the free texting was something only available in a country to which Donald Trump (the most patriotic American in his whole wide mind) thinks is so inferior! What’s up America? Can’t afford to give us free WiFi in our planes? I hear ya... What’re you gonna do Trump, build a wall around the United State’s overpriced internet service?!? Just kidding folks! I had a great flight!"
Cons: "I didn’t like nothing! Haha... see that just sounds cool and negative to say... but if you want to get technical and check my syntax and grammar and stuff, that means I DID like EVERYTHING! And I did! Thanks American I appreciate you!"
Pros: "American Airlines is always my first choice for flying. Gate crew was February friendly & efficient."
Cons: "This particular plane was not worth the up charge for seats. The head phone jacks did not work in our entire row & nobody cared, so we were not able to watch the monitor or any entertainment. Seats that didn’t have to pay extra we’re working. They skipped our row when offering drinks & snacks, when my seat mate asked for some of the biscotti the attendant questioned her asking if she was sure she hadn’t already already had one. Final small thing was the latch on the try table was not working correctly. In a nut shell, not worth the extra money that was paid."
Pros: "We were up and down and I’m happy there was a direct flight to St George from Phoenix. But the price was higher than going to Salt Lake ."
Cons: "Plane was very old and we had to walk a loooong way to board."
Cons: "I had to stand on stairs while crew served drinks! Windy on stairs. Unacceptable! I felt like a second class customer!"
Pros: "Drink service was good"
Pros: "On time arrival at destination"
Cons: "No food entertainment or other amenities available"
Pros: "i loved everything but there should be more variety of food and snacks"
Pros: "Quiet plane."
Cons: "No local temperature control, back of plane too cold, middle too hot. No air vents at seats. 3 hours with no drink service, went to back asked for a diet coke, was told no. Flight attendant who was in the back would not give me one, said they were doing water service now and I should wait."
Pros: "Good service and excellent crew"
Cons: "Food choice are few by the time they reach the back of the plane."
Pros: "I loved the extra room in the seating, great seats too. Plus the personal TVs and movie selection was fantastic!!! However, 1/3 of the planes TVs did not work. Luckily, my row of TVs did work and we had an empty seat between my daughter and me , so when my son's TV went out he sat in my row which did work. Great plane, once everything is fixed!"
Cons: "I paid 800.00 and no breakfast order lunch served."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Pros: "Didn't have to turn around & come back like other flight. Still got to my destination in time."
Cons: "hour delay because too hot to land in El Paso, only then did they need to fuel the plane, then realized plane was overweight, made me wonder if making it up or really hadn't thought it out."
Cons: "Cramped seating. As per usual."
Pros: "Companion in flight nice Korean girl... We chatted trough all flight time"
Cons: "Arrived and luggage did not arrive and had to open a claim and had to go back to pick my luggage next day, not pleasant considering I live in Juarez Mexico and had to cross the border all tired and fed up with this incident"
Pros: "No hassle. Drinks provided. No complaints."
Pros: "Seating was surprisingly comfortable (S80). Left the gate about 4min early. Arrived at destination about 18min early. Full can of soda/juice offered rather than a single cup."
Cons: "Limited overhead storage (S80)."
Cons: "No place to put my purse!"
Pros: "The ticketing staff in Lihue was excellent!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Need better crew the lady serving the snacks looked moody."
Pros: "The new airplane was nice. The plane that we took to Hawaii was so old that it still had ashtrays and was super dirty."
Cons: "For some reason American has not given us any seat assignments in our trip home and all the gate agents are very unfriendly and not in HR least bit helpful."
Pros: "I was there 35 minutes early at the kiosk, checked in then it said unfortunately you missed your flight."
Cons: "Showed up 29 minutes before my earlier flight and was evicted. It took 7 hours to get on another one. Then that flight was delayed an hour due to the A/C not working. Frequent business traveler going to avoid AA at all costs from now on."
Cons: "Terrible side to side of aeroport to get conetion fly with out time"
