Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and the seat was fine."
Pros: "The crew was great. Friendly and helpful"
Cons: "A 5 hour Departure delay."
Pros: "Alaska Air sets the standard. Seated in exit row. Power outlets at seat. 500 movies/TV shows available to stream on devices. Ok food available for purchase. Flight attendants seem knowledge and a cut-above service-wise."
Cons: "Honestly in-flight food for purchase is just ok. Not great, not terrible. Just doesn't seem like they're trying that hard. Unusual for Alaska."
Pros: "I did like the space between the seats, it felt roomier than other airlines. and the seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "I was never able to connect to the inflight movies on the flight even after downloading the app and following all the instructions. That was pretty frustrating."

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

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."

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!"

Even though we had to buy the food, they delivered the food very fast and kept on serving us the drinks (three times) even though they plane had some turbulence during those times. We really appreciated the excellent services and the customer-oriented attitude. I definitely will choose to fly with Alaska Airlines in the future."

Cons: "We left 4 hours later than expected. Didn't get home until the wee hours."
Pros: "Not too much...just ok."
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: "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."

Pros: "On time, the flight crew was amazing. Helpful and accommodating when possible."
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."
