Pros: "Crew was very attentive and the seat was fine."
Pros: "Everything was great except the delay and also the delay in getting my baggage"
Cons: "We could have left on time"
Cons: "Better late night food"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No movie ability unless you rent the device"
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. She rudely told me to sit down and she would call me up when she was ready. She serviced everybody else first, made us wait until last, and gave us two window seats instead."
Cons: "They didnt tell me I had to order food before getting on the plane and that I needed to download a program to watch on my phone."
Pros: "All the movies and tv shows were 100% free. A very good selection of things to watch."
Cons: "The WiFi was too expensive."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment system was great; HUNDREDS of choices from movies and TV. Food packs were really good and we could reserve specific items when we did online check-in (so no more hoping they’ll have X or Y available)."
Cons: "I was sitting in 29C (aisle seat) and 2 of the 3 crew members kept running into my aisle-side shoulder and arm. I’m a bigger guy and I understand that occasionally bumps will happen, but 15-20 times on ONE FLIGHT?! The only thing I wanted was an “excuse me” or “pardon me”, you know COMMON COURTESY!"
Cons: "Nothing, all was perfect!"
Pros: "This is how flying should be. No ridiculous fees, free drinks and entertainment, easy and fast boarding, comfortable seats, attentive attendants."
Pros: "We arrived to check in at HI Lihue and the agent that checked me in was helpful and set off a chain of positive experiences for the flight home. Our luggage arrived moments after walking to the luggage carousel."
Cons: "Caused serious problems with our travel plans"
Pros: "Nice crew. Firm landing in very windy conditions."
Cons: "So, this plane was a Virgin America aircraft taken over by Alaska since the merger. My fiance and I were on a red eye non-stop to Philly from LAX. That said, the plane was in terrible condition. The seat back in front of my seat was broken and hanging down on my knees, there was no opportunity for entertainment unless you brought your own plug in headphones (none on the plane to use or purchase), we purchased upgraded seats and when we checked in the night before were told they were not available and we would be in economy (still waiting for that $200 refund 7 days later), the arm rest between our seats was broken and would not stay up, the headrest of my seat was broken and there was exposed metal, and when we purchased champagne to celebrate our vacation it was warm. One other item I noticed was the woman across the aisle's seat would not sit upright. She was asked to move to another seat for both take off and landing. Not sure if this was a Virgin America crew of Alaska, but terribly disappointed iin the crews lack of care and would not fly them again across country if this is what is to be expected."
Cons: "I missed the connection for a delay in Qantas for Melbourne."
Cons: "We flew to Lihue on a different airline and they provided a free meal. The attendants on that flight were more friendly, carefree and smiled more. This is the second time I flew with Alaska."

Pros: "The choice of movies seemed great"

Pros: "Friendly captain talking with crew"
Cons: "I wish flight attendants would hold their Mic an inch from their mouth so their announcements didn’t blast you"

Pros: "Wonderful experience!"

Cons: "They need to make people aware that they need to download a movie app before they fly across the ocean. No internet connection for 6 hrs and no way to watch my IPad without the app installed."
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!!!"
Cons: "A long flight and was cold, and a crying baby throughout the flight"
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!"

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."
Cons: "Alaska does not allow people on flights booked through third parties (priceline in this case) to choose your seating, you take what you get or, as in our case - have it fixed at the gate (which they did)."

Pros: "The crew was super nice, and the rest of the experience felt like it was designed around us being as comfortable and happy as possible."

Cons: "Let me start by saying.. I never ever leave negative comments; and two, I apologize for th long winded message.. but I'm still fuming!! My husband and I both had smaller roller carry on bags traveling with us. When we approached the plane through the gate, the Hawaiian Airlines staff told us there wasn't anymore room for our bags, and that they would have to be checked. Whenever this has been done on other airlines, they always return your bag to you as soon as you get off the plane... not this time! Our bags were sent to baggage claim, and we had a connecting flight with a very short layover window! This means that we were FORCED to leave the airport area, retrieve our bags from baggage claim, go through security AGAIN and almost miss our connecting flight! I expressed to the crew immediately after we got off the plane our situation and that we were never even given an option to give them our bags as we would have never opted in for going all the way out and all the way back in to get to our connection (SO stressful!!). Make a long story short, the staff lied to us about where our bags were going, were NOT helpful when I told them that we needed our bags, and showed no concern or sympathy that we may miss out connecting flight because of their mistake. Winded, mad and extremely late.. we barely got on the connection.. NO THANKS TO THE HAWAIIAN AIRLINES STAFF! Will never fly Hawaiian again!"
