Cons: "More seat room"
Pros: "25 minutes early! Amazing."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Clean airplane. Great Alaska Airline app for managing flight."
Pros: "This was my first flight on Alaska Air. Free carryon and free movies, along with cookie snack and two passes from the drink cart were all appreciated. Flight attendants were pleasant, luggage was waiting for us in the baggage claim area by the time we got there!"
Cons: "Seats were not all that comfortable, although they did recline a bit, and we had quite a little outdoor hike to get from the gate in Portland to where our plane was parked."
Cons: "Had to take bus to plane. Waited a long time on bus before it headed to plane. Male attendant spoke so fast he was not understandable."

Pros: "The staff was so polite and the plane was clean"
Cons: "The seats are a little tight but it’s ok for a short flight"
Pros: "The fights were on time.Crews were friendly. Landings were smooth. Luggage was indeed right there on the tarmac after we disembarked in PDX."
Cons: "Soooo disappointed that you needed to pay for the internet on the smaller planes while on the larger one it was included in the price for us lowly Economy flyers. The flight from SEA to PDX was tight with the smaller seats. My husband is a big man and if he had not been sitting next to me and been a man I did not know it would have been VERY uncomfortable. The flight from PDX to ONT was better with the seats but again we had no way to charge our devices and were asked to pay for the WiFi. Really??? In this day when EVERYONE uses them you are going to punish economy??? If you offer WiFi on the big ALaska planes then it should be offered on all of them. Not sure how hard it would be to wire in charge ports but someone should be working on that."
Pros: "Friendly efficient service"
Cons: "Seats are getting progressively more uncomfortable each year"

Cons: "The dry cookies need to be replaced. Please bring back pretzels."
Pros: "I'm glad they successfully fixed the mechanical issue before we got into the air."
Cons: "I do wish they would have checked the plane for the mechanical issue previous to boarding. The plane pulled away from the gate only to return to have its thrust reverser fixed when an error message had shown up. It would have been nice for that to have been handled before."
Cons: "Passengers moved from their assigned seats after the flight started, so I went from having a comfy back seat with nobody in the middle to suddenly having a very large person sitting in the middle. That alone wouldn't have been so bad, but he had very poor manners and spread his legs and arms out as far as he could. It was an extremely uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Service, flight and boarding was great. I had a good short flight. I liked the Starbucks coffee options. Everything was on time."

Pros: "Comfort, kindness of staff, on time and luggage so fast! Thank you."

Pros: "Left 5 min early and got in 40 min early!"
Pros: "Service was professional and accommodating"
Pros: "The people are most helpful, cheerful. Some confusion about the gate. The plane was clean. I would fly with Alaska again. Free checking of a carry on due to ful flight very nice."

Pros: "Was an average flight, nothing bad happened and nothing exceptional happened."
Cons: "Food was OK, but we were promised Chocolate and there was none"
Pros: "Alaska airlines is amazing. The free wifi and tv/movies was definitely a nice perk. And on top of that, the crew was so just so sweet and pleasant. Overall a great flying experience."
Pros: "People were nice and made good time on the trip"
Cons: "Wifi was terrible, could not even do basic email work on both my flights to and from Portland. Waste of money and very disappointing. Did not have this issue with Jetblue on my last trip. -sm"
Pros: "Great people with awesome service. Wish all air line was like Alaska."
Pros: "Early flight, and short. I think I slept through it. Woke up sore, but eh I'm not surprised by that. I'm a giant and no one woke me up for anything so I was satisfied."
Pros: "Glorious leg room! Some airlines have crammed their seats so close together that even someone of average height has their knees jammed into the seat-back in front of them. Not so on Alaskan Air. I had a good 4-5 inches of space between my knees and the seat in front of me. Can't say the same for a lot of other airlines."
Pros: "all and all,it was a pleasant flight,--seats were comfortable-nice flight-attendants-courteous and considerate pilate and crew"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, plane was clean and comfortable, and departure was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a little disorganized - not due to the Alaska Air staff, but the space is a little awkward. The desk staff would announce the different times for boarding various categories, but it was hard to actually get in line because everyone was crowded around the area to line up, so those in the back could not get to the actual line."
Pros: "Leg room and large overhead bins. Offered to check our carry on at the check in counter for free."
Cons: "Suggest boarding the plane in 3 main groups instead of 2."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, they do offer multiple free sodas. No inflight entertainment, you have to pay for internet if you want to use it."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay for internet, they should offer it for free since you do pay for the flight. The food that you buy was high priced but that was to be expected. The quality of food that I purchased was average."
Pros: "timing and services"
Cons: "Major turbulence made the flight miserable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Being that it doesn't arrive in ABQ until almost midnight, a 52 minute delay means I don't get home until almost 2 in the morning. Seats also seem to be kind of narrow on the 737-800. I'm not a big guy, but I am still bumping shoulders through out the flight."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Pros: "Good flight. 3 hour duration at night. I flew in first class, as the extension of my business class flight from Paris."
Cons: "Had to use a wheelchair service in terminals. Me and another victim were wheeled to 40 feet from the check in desk and the guy took off without further instruction. I hobbled to the counter to make sure we were on the pre-board list. Defeats the purpose, but whatever....."
Cons: "Yo actually take off on time"
Cons: "Flight canceled with zero re-book.assistance offered and NO seats left. I was forced to upgrade to get to my destination a day late. Trip was short to begin with. I booked plenty in advance. I want my 55m miles back in my account. It was that or $1000. Unhappy customer."
Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time"
Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."
Pros: "Got bumped up to main cabin extra for free whiskey"
Cons: "2 hour delay on first flight making me miss my second flight and instead of arriving home at 3 pm I won’t be home till about 10 pm .... definitely reconsidering booking American Airlines again...."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 1.5h. On top of it, there was no inflight entertainment or snack available during the 3h long flight."
Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"
Cons: "Pésimo perdí mi vuelo de conexión porque el vuelo estaba retrasado 1hora y media"
Cons: "Cancellations and the staff was not very helpful at all! Very disappointed"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."
Cons: "I had a delay of 4 hours. Got home very late. Not what I had planned on."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Cons: "Boarding at Terminal 3 gate A8 was slow and a single line makes for a lengthy process."
Pros: "The staff was great smooth flight"
Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."
Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."
Cons: "Very old fashioned plane, with one tv to watch a movie. I don't think I've flown on anything like that since the 90's."
Cons: "Smallness of seats"
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that American Airlines try to get me to put my small carry on bag below both ways in the cargo area it is against FAA to have batteries down there. I have 30,000.00 in cameras and they tried to get me to do this both times saying the bag will not fit. The Flight Attendant each time say that it fits JUST FINE! I'm going to try to avoid American Airlines as much as I can!"
Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"
Cons: "Flight path at the end had to many turns kinda made me sick"
Pros: "Departure gate was clean"

Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, too narrow, and little leg room."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "I did not like how I requested a same day flight, was presented with a low fare, so I took it, and it was deceptively a different day months in the future. . . This is not a flight I feel I should have paid for, as I feel I was deceived"
Pros: "Chargers in the back of the seat for devices Friendly staff Nice quality airplanes"
Cons: "Paid for WiFi, and it was very choppy and slow. Took over 3-4 min, and several refreshes to send/receive an email."
Pros: "The crew was kind and courteous. Highly professional and helpful."
Cons: "Aside from flying through a huge storm which is out of anyone's control and arriving 20 minutes early only to have to sit on the plan as the terminal was occupied, my trip was great."
