Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The staff at both airports were amazing. (SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up. That’s not to mention the Alaska staff that allowed me to move my flight up to accommodate my schedule or the excellent staff at the gate and on the plane. Very nice experience!"

Pros: "Very organized"
Pros: "Canceled and rented a car to get home!!!"
Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."
Pros: "Awesome !"
Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."
Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"
Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."
Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."
Pros: "Seeing me seated next to a young person big enough to need more than one seat (couldn't lower the arm rest), a flight attendant found another seat for me without me asking."
Cons: "If a person needs two seats, maybe they should buy two seats. The streaming movie only came it fitful bits, far inferior to previous provided screens. It also took about twice as long to play as a result. And of course, checking a bag should not be an additional cost, nor should a meal on long flights."
Pros: "Flight was 15 min early."
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty, chocolate on the one next to me and carpet had stuff on it."
Pros: "Professional staff. Very friendly. Flight on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Extra cramped. Very uncomfortable for 5 hour flight. Not even enough room to work on 13" laptop. Wanted extra $80 for 4" extra legroom. Seems steep for not really much difference. Airlines getting too cheap and cramming people in. Had to lean against window just to keep from bumping person next to me."
Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"
Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"
Pros: "the seats were much more comfortable and the fans worked. I had a way better flight."

Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."

Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"
Pros: "Crew was curteous and friendly."
Cons: "Food was only available for purchase. The limited amount of entertainment was limited to mostly pay."
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."
Pros: "It was decent"
Pros: "Roomie and comfortable seating!"
Cons: "Nothing. I would recommend AK"
Pros: "The crew is always really nice on Alaska"
Cons: "The plane was really small. There is no entertainment, but the flight was only 50 minutes so it doesn't matter."
Cons: "There was not enough room for my small sized bag to fit in the overhead. Crew members seemed nice, but then would go to the back and laugh and say something rude about a passenger. This was a late night 3 hour flight and no entertainment was offered. It was freezing during the entire flight and no blanket was available. Overall, I was not pleased with my experience with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable seats Friendly staff Soft landing"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thankyou so much."
Pros: "The guy working the terminal was very helpful."
Cons: "There was some grouchy lady working the terminal and she put a damper on everyone mood. Could put my seats together without me paying an up charge."
Cons: "We had to take a shuttle bus from the gate out to the plane, this made boarding very chaotic. The seats were not very comfortable- they needed more padding."

Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "I wanted an aisle seat."
Pros: "Everything! Thank you"
Cons: "Nothing. Thanks"
Pros: "Amazing crew as always"
Cons: "Wifi on smaller hoppers"
Pros: "I was surprised that we received two meals and constant drinks in economy. Delta definitely has better hospitality than American."
Cons: "The seats were really tight between the rows. The space between the seats on the same row were typical."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "The plane was 2 hours late and I could not get home. Missed the connection to Greenville at 11:38. They told me there were no hotels in Atlanta and I would have to stay in the airport and then take the 8:55 am fight to Greenville. That took an hour in line and there was no help."
Cons: "The pilot was awesome. He flew as fast as he could to help anyone make their connection but it didn’t help. But I appreciate him trying. Just frustrated that being military I didn’t get to board earlier or that they didn’t help me find a way home"
Pros: "In rescheduling us they only charged us $54 per person"
Cons: "Reminder came 20 min beforehand and because I didn’t pre check in we missed the flight even though the plane had not even arrived.... terrible experience in Paris and impacted our life in a large way.... not a good experience using kayak"
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Delta was OK"
Cons: "Lack of attention by the fly stuard in Virgin Australia Virgin had a 45´delay"

Cons: "Sitting in the last row where my seat didn’t recline and it was loud and no window. It was claustrophobic!"
Cons: "Dripped on!!!!!!"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Service with a smile."
Cons: "We almost missed the flight sitting right in front of the gate. No announcements could be heard in the gate area and when we asked, they said they were already removing our luggage, Very odd. Food was terrible! Choices were pasta and cold chicken salad. I had the pasta, which was bland ravioli in two bland sauces. I was surprised, because I had experienced better food on recent international flights."
Pros: "Attentive, respectful and nice crew, swift take off and landing and awesome views"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Pros: "During some bad weather the pilots chose to go into a holding pattern to wait for a thunderstorm to leave the field. Thanks for considering our safety. The entire crew was awesome."
Cons: "Why do the airliine attendants make sure all of our seat belts are fastened before they give us a safety briefing to demonstrate how to buckle our seat belts?"
Pros: "Like the fact I could watch 2-3 movies. Love the gluten free options for snacks."
Cons: "All of the couples were not assigned seats together. I've never seen anything so stupid. So before the plane took off, about four of us ladies from all over the back of the plane stood up and each jumbled a bunch of seats like a rubix cube so the men could then get up and go sit with their wives."
Pros: "The crew was organized and made us all laugh, and had a great personality."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average."
Cons: "Sat by the exit seat so the door was a bit more chilly. No food. Small entertainment screens with audio bleed through."
Pros: "Fast, orderly boarding."
Cons: "These planes are too small. I’m average in size but women have hips and it’s not easy fitting into the seats. Why are they stacked so closely together? It’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight smooth and quick."
Cons: "Gate change and departure time change not reflected properly on boarding pass. Problems with gogo in Flight."
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "New plane with knight entertainment screens at all seats!"
Cons: "Delayed, bit crew was friendly and efficient!"
Pros: "Quick service - uneventful."
Pros: "Other than the delay by the Hong Kong Airport controller, everything went smoothly. The plane was late to Seattle."
Cons: "The luggage custom clearing would be much better if we could do it like the Vancouver BC where an electronic monitor was used to identify one's luggage without the need to handle them manually. Much more efficient and allowing folks to get on the connecting flights easier."
Pros: "Flight all left on time and actually arrived early. Nice to have free movies, shows, etc. Good selection of current stuff"
Cons: "Seat spacing width is too narrow. Knee room was good as we had an exit row."
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "I Love flying on Delta especially since I'm often upgraded to Comfort or first class."
Pros: "Delta has a pretty good entertainment system. Lots of movies to watch and the system works well."
Cons: "Seats are very tight and uncomfortable. The food was horrible. Tasted like a $1 frozen meal that was microwaved til mushy. It was chicken but I couldn't tell you more. And flight attendant helpfully described it as 'chicken'. Breakfast was a cold roll, a piece of cheese and some awful yogurt. This was the most unbearable 8.5 hours of my life."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment options, much was complementary, which was definitely a neat addition."
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay right before boarding, which was not the airline's fault, but air traffic control at the destination. Unfortunate, but things happen."
Pros: "On time, quick flight, nice people."
Cons: "It was freezing cold."
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"

Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."
Pros: "Delta sent a text which notified that our flight was to be delayed and we were free to seek an alternative flight. Delta was able to get us on an earlier Flight land then delivered our luggage the next morning. Delta sent an e-mail with the driver's picture, name and picture of the vehicle. The driver called to notify he was on the way. Excellent service."

Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, service was nice."

Pros: "The crew was polite, including TSA, and I had no problems with anyone on board. There was also little turbulence, which was nice as a first time flyer."

Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely precious."
Cons: "Delayed because a passenger was let on that shouldn’t have been. The plane was kind of beat up and gross. The gate changed after boarding started. This is the second flight in two weeks that had the wrong gate posted."
Pros: "Attendant was quick to provide seatbelt extender."
Cons: "Seatbelts were short. I'm a big guy, but I needed a seatbelt extender. This wasn't an issue on other flights."
Cons: "Left on time and arrived early:)"
Cons: "Inflexible employee, bad website, worse app. NO ROOM for mid seat traveler. Had to keep arms crossed the whole trip, Dangerous for somebody like me with respiratory illness and sleep apnea"

Pros: "The planes took off on time, and arrived early. Couldn’t ask for more!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and legroom was bad."
Pros: "Great entertainment and crew."

Cons: "Another delay on second segment of cross country flight — this time for maintenance issues that were never fully explained. took off an hour late from DFW."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "We missed our flight to Orlando because we were delayed in London. The staff couldn't help when I requested to see the full text contract as stated on back of the boarding pass. Over three hours late to Orlando. Even in Orlando people couldn't help us find the long term parking shuttle and wind up taking a whole hour tour of Orlando airport."
Pros: "arrival to the destination"
Cons: "booking through kayak was a nightmare. they serve no purpose othan than to collect a fee and add zero value and provide no support after the transaction. it is pointless to use this service as no one at Kayak can help you after the purchase, and we all know airlines are useless when it comes fo customer service. never again! american airlines was even worse with their customer service when trying to get seat selections preserved when the airline was updated from British to American airlines. American airlines lied over the phone and was even more rude in person. JOKE"
Cons: "the payment didn't work but I got no notification. When I got to the airport I couldn't check in. It took a lot of time with more fee to figured it out. A terrible experience"
Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."
Cons: "Flight from Gulfport was delayed 3 hours and carry on bags with wheels were not allowed on the plane even though there met the size requirements for a carry on. I was allowed to bring it on the incoming flight, which was the same kind of plane. Not a pleasant experience and will definitely avoid American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Flight attendant, David, was extremely professional and nice."
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "The service from the flight attendants on the flight was absolutely amazing"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Pros: "When the lettuce looks like the salad you forgot to put away last night you know it has been around and about too long! Pity!"
Pros: "Plane was comfy and food was good"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich was a nightmare. There was no place to line up and there was only one person checking tickets which resulted in 100s of people trying to push through at same time. After that we had to cram on buses and wait on tarmack for 30mins till plane was ready and then everyone rushed on the plane."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Plenty of food and beverages, decent comfort in seats, great flight crew."

Pros: "Once in the air things went well."
Cons: "We spent more time on the tarmac than in the air. The plane was unusually noisy on landing. There was little room"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Pros: "Pampered by flight crew !!!"
Pros: "The flight was painfully uncomfortable for me, as a tall and not particularly small person. I should have known better than to take the window seat (Orlando to DC was painfully uncomfortable because I just don't fit in those seats). The in-flight service was good, but I was glad when this flight was over."
Cons: "Mentioned above"
Pros: "On time. Friendly."
Pros: "Short but comfortable first class flight."
Pros: "crew is rude!"
Cons: "On a 5.5 hour flight, a snack would have been nice. Crew needs to be friendlier like in the old days."
Pros: "Good assortment of movies"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Flight was late arriving to Atl flight was late arriving to Chicago made me miss my connection to FNT American rebooked (after they told me they hold plane I ran through 5 concourses to get there n American still left me and several other passengers) through United late flight to FNT a 4 hr lay-over turned into 6hrs 2 plane changes cause of mechanical issues n had to run 2 concourses over still was late leaving and arriving to FNT...."

Pros: "The food was remarkably good for a US airline. The wine was good as well. I found enough video material to entertain me throughout the long flight, although I would have liked a decent classical music program."
Cons: "I had to ask for a pillow and when I did not take the blanket becaue it was comfortable I had made a mistake. It was VERY chilly in the last third of the flight and there was no way to locate personnel, or even a call button in the darkened plane to ask for one.Finally I climbed up on my seat (short people cannot reach the overhead bins on this plane) to get my coat out of the overhead bin and passed the last hours bundled up in that. While water was passed out frequently, collecting cups and bottles, not to mention the remnants of the snack or meals was not high on the priority list and eventually we were sitting in a trash pile. Bravo for having luggage available as soon as we got through customs!"
Cons: "No drink service And no free tv"
Pros: "On time. Efficient on and off plane. Didn’t hassle me about my carry on."
Pros: "They let me know they couldn't get it together enough to get a plane in an almost timely manner. Once they did I couldn't take advantage of the alternatives without risking missing out all together"
Cons: "The 4 plus hour delay that meant a 3 plus hour layover because of the missed connection. Requesting an agreement to just make the new connection because of their non-weather related delay."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Everything but the easy boarding. Horrible comfort level to the point of wishing I could have hurled myself out of the plane."
Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"
Cons: "We were delayed in Detroit due to deicing the plane. We landed in Houston late. They let us and a few other couples off the plane first so we could make our connection. We sprinted off the plane and arrived to the gate two minutes after they closed the door; plane was still there and they would not let us on. United knew we were coming and they closed the door anyway. The next flight out to Liberia, Costa Rica wasn’t for two more days. They ended up rebooking us on a flight to Panama which had a connection to San Jose, Costa Rica. Much farther of a drive from that airport. Very disappointed in how United handled this situation, we were told if it was a bigger group they would have held the plane for us. I will never fly United again but I know it has nothing to do with Kayak. Kayak has always been great and is my go to for booking plane tickets."
Pros: "The Boeing 787 plane was very nice. The window shading control is unique!"
Cons: "Thanks United for keeping my diet in check."
Pros: "Reached SFO safely. Thank God!"
Cons: "Awfully rude and uncaring cabin crew. Especially a guy named Eric. Bumped my shoulder with service cart when Zi was sleeping. Ignored me when I tried to catch his attention several times. Didn’t care a damn about offering a vegetarian meal/snack. Both times only available meal was non vegetarian. Normally the crew tries to accommodate and offer some options. But Eric said this was it...take it or leave it. Just so rude and uncaring. No entertainment in head rest in front. Internet was extremely spotty and the charging station would stop after some time automatically :("
Pros: "the flight left on time"
Pros: "This flight was good"
Cons: "The delay flew twice with united and both times delay"
Pros: "Very couteous and helpful at gate"
Cons: "Delayed two hours which caused many travel problems"
Pros: "Cordial airline."
Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"
Pros: "The leg room on plane was great."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. They did not have enough room to line up people for organized groups. People were cutting in line, walking up in front, where as people had been in line for half an hour. they need more clarity and staff to help with this."
Pros: "Agent at check-in was very, very helpful and accomadating"
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "The guy who put our luggage up was rude! He slammed the baggage on my foot on purpose! Plane was too cold and no blankets. It was late and they didn't turn lights off. Very annoying. Some ppl were cold and annoyed."
Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."

Cons: "The flight had no snacks. The seats werent comfortable."
Pros: "Crew at counter n on plane were great. Perfect. Couldn't ask for more."
Pros: "On time - small plane. Ground crew performed well"
Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."

Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed coming in from Oslo, so boarding was pushed back due to customs clearance of the plane. TVs weren't working properly and needed to reboot before take off. Then while viewing movies, there was constant skipping throughout the flight. Then after landing, we sat on the runway for over 40 minutes waiting for a gate. Leg room not great. Overhead compartments were too small for the average rolling carry on so I was forced to check my bag at the gate, and then deal with baggage claim at LAX."
