They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers.

She also thanked a soldier for her service. Love these little touches.

Not much to add here because not much to like

There was nothing on this flight. No plug ins for your phones, or music or movies or nothing. No magazine, and it was so cold I thought I was going to freeze. I flew out to Chicago on Alaskan and the fight was wonderful! But this flight was a total opposite to that flight. I took pictures of the seats to show my daughter that there was nothing. And swore at that time....never fly Frontier again.

Wish I could think of something to write here.

The on-line purchasing process did not function correctly. Was forced to call customer service and the rep I spoke with kept confusing departing and returning flights. The plane was late. My special zone 2 only boarding time was skipped and lumped with zone 3. The plane then had to wait for additional maintenance. The plane appeared to be... ancient. "Unlimited" coffee... was limited to two cups. A kid stuck a sex toy to the interior ceiling of the aircraft and despite a 10" purple silicon dildo hanging down, no staff member said a word.

I purchased insurance in the event my circumstances changed and I couldn’t fly. My circumstances did change and I ended up not flying.

Your subject headline in your email read: How was your Alaska Airlines flight to Washington? All correspondence referenced Alaska Airlines, however my flight was and American Airlines flight and in a terminal on the complete other side of the airport. I suggest you clarify on line.

Nothing, didn’t fly

I purchased insurance in the event my circumstances changed and I couldn’t fly. My circumstances did change and I ended up not flying. When I contacted Alaskan, they “reimbursed” me for the flight but simultaneously charged me $125 as a change fee. The result was no benefit from the insurance, and a loss of my money as a result.

Nothing.

They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers.

The gate was switched at the last hour for no apparent reason to a gate that had a delayed flight. My flight was delayed an hour as we waited for the first flight to depart and then my flight to deplane, get cleaned, load and depart. Not sure why this needed to happen.

Staff was professional but not warm. Boarding was easy and the timing was great.

Cramped. Absolutely no leg room and I’m 5 foot 2 inches. The bathroom filled up so no one could use the facilities for the last hour of flight.

Not much to add here because not much to like

There was nothing on this flight. No plug ins for your phones, or music or movies or nothing. No magazine, and it was so cold I thought I was going to freeze. I flew out to Chicago on Alaskan and the fight was wonderful! But this flight was a total opposite to that flight. I took pictures of the seats to show my daughter that there was nothing. And swore at that time....never fly Frontier again.

Mostly that it was a non-stop flight. Flight attendants were nice.

I didn't care for all the "ups and extras" that were added to the base cost of the flight....one bag for 40 bucks, 17 bucks just to sit there? Ridiculous!

Very uncomfortable seats, they nickel and dime you for everything. You’re better flight America or United unless you plan to fly with the clothes you have on and a very small carry on.

Would not allow upgrade even thought seats available because my economy ticket was not appropriate for upgrade. Seems that if all those who could upgrade hf upgraded had done so, why not allow the upgrade. Would have been more money for airlines and I would have enjoyed the trip more.

The crew was wonderful; I purchased a business class seat, which was comfortable (although I could not tell the difference between business class and coach seats).

The food was horrible - nothing fit for a person who is diabetic or vegan or non-dairy. And the price was outrageously high for what one received.

The aircrew on my flight to Washington was courteous and efficient. It was a red eye so mostly slept. I understand why the seating has become more cramped and can accept that.

The ground crew at the United station at LAX were outrageous. They told me they were tougher than other airports, and they harangued the Economy passengers actually telling them that the Economy ticket didn’t allow them anything. “That it wasn’t worth buying an Economy ticket.” Why do they sell them? These people need some serious customer relations retraining.

Crew was great. I was carrying a tuxedo and a suite and one of the crew offered to take them from me and hang them instead of folding them in the overhead. Everyone was very please t.

1. Entertainment was a small tablet that you rent to see movies. I can’t believe it has reached that extent. 2. Food. We ordered a chicken sandwich and the veggies that go in the sandwich came separately in. ZIPLOCK bag. The shredded carrots were all over the place. Really bad idea.

Everyone from counter check-in to flight attendants were very kind. You just don't see that anymore. This is my first time with Alaska Airline and I would be glad to fly you again.

The Gogo internet was very slow to non-existent -- like dial-up slow. WiFi delivery may not be Alaska Airline's fault, but $40... woof. For that price, I want it to be blazing fast.

Plane was full, but it didn’t feel too cramped. Flight Attendants all kind and efficient.

No complaints except they need more vegetarian food options as it’s a 5.5 hour flight. No entertainment screen, you need your phone to watch anything, but there are USB plugs at each seat.

Nothing, the seats were really horrendous, the head rest was in such an awkward position that it was better to attempt to hunch over and try to sleep on the tray. The lack of leg room as well made it equally uncomfortable. Seriously, the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on.
