Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Simple and easy"
Cons: "They’re amazing crews"
Pros: "It is always a joy to fly on Alaska. This is especially pronounced when on a long flight with multiple airlines and then the Alaska segment brings a smile to my face. Even when other airlines do good, Alaska does it better. In a word, employees. Alaskan employees always have a genuine smile and a kind word. Thank you Alaska!"
Pros: "service excellent"
Cons: "Alaska lounge sub standard"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow"
Cons: "On the leg from Seattle to Anchorage there was a significant time delay due to a “medical situation” I suspect a young female passenger had a few to many drinks and puked all over the back of the plane prior to take off. It happens and is really no ones fault but her own. I guess being the smug person I am I would like to see Alaska be compensated by the young lady"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "It was great we had a nice Tailwind that got us in 50 min early . Space in seating was more than adequit."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "No reclining capability"
Pros: "After a long delay the captain did his best to get us to Anchorage as quickly as possible. That was appreciated."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours due to the fact that the scheduled captain could not fly anymore due to hours. We had to wait to get another pilot. This caused some problems for some who had schedules to meet, and rides to be notified. The airline needs to see this possibility sooner so long waits are avoided as much as possible. The 737 was not as comfortable as the regional jet on our first leg of this trip."
Cons: "Downloading an app to watch the movies does not work out if you're already in flight bc the wifi connection won't let you access the App Store. A little counter productive!"
Pros: "Lots of leg room."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized and crowded. I wish Alaska would adhere to its carry on size limit. Too many pax have big bags."
Pros: "People were efficient and friendly"
Pros: "It was on time. Courteous employees."
Pros: "New seat configuration is nice. Like the option of a forward cabin upgrade."
Cons: "Flight attendants were goofing around on the PA system and not giving the full briefing. We all know it by heart now, but it was unprofessional and the one gal Mimi you could barely understand. Seemed like they had all been having a night out before coming to work. Not Alaskas usual standard."
Cons: "My husband and I were seated apart from each other, despite booking the ticket 9 months in advance. I was seated next to a drunk individual who had personal space issues."
Pros: "Flying is difficult because it is so crowded but this is just part of travel. Alaska Airlines does a great job of getting us where we are going, on time."
Pros: "The beer."
Cons: "No blankets."
Pros: "Just whole trip was great."
Pros: "The wifi was really nice."
Cons: "It's a tight fit. There is very little leg room and I was put in a seat that didn't recline."

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Delay due to maintenance"
Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."
Pros: "Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. Even though I am only a coach passenger, when I spend $400+ on a flight I expect at least a little bit of attention to be paid to the comfort and ergonomics of the seat."
Pros: "Alaskas great cheese plate"
Cons: "The heat was high, we asked the male steward many times to request the heat turned down, people were removing as much clothing as possible. It was very hot and sticky and smelly. The descent to landing was to fast when near the runway, and we crashed hard like a carrier landing. I would inspect the gear and wing spats for cracks. The fuselage bowed like a banana, it was evident looking down the tube sitting the back. How about a breathalyzer or something, everybody knows the drunken pilots, the can't be fired and they know it, so it takes years to sober them up at our expense. The pilots who've been caught drinking are not trying to get better, they just whine that the others who haven't been caught yet are even worse drunks. Everybody who flys on Alaska has heard it from the same old Alaska born drunken pilots. How about less drunken bush piloting and get your drunken pilots who've been busted in the last few years to shut up and stop telling everyone that all Alaska pilots are drunks as defense of there drunkeness."
Cons: "need more space"
Pros: "All of the above. The round trip was a pleasure"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and then postponed to 3 hours later but at least they reaccommodated the passengers as good as they could."
Pros: "Nothing special good or bad"
Cons: "My seat did not recline properly and had to sit upright throughout the flight, so was less comfortable."
Cons: "Absolutely full flight with no physical distancing."
Pros: "Newer plane, smooth boarding and on time arrival"
Cons: "the pilot gave us a hard landing in Jamaica"
Pros: "Yes all good"
Cons: "Nothing I can think on to improve."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."
Cons: "All of my flights were delayed"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The seat was tiny. It took forever. I hate you people."
Cons: "3 of the crew Members were extremely rude... snarky remarks when asking very simple questions... We are supposed to have a good experience as a costumer. Not my fault the crew might be tired or having a bad day."
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Cons: "Food and wine"
Pros: "Good flight good crew"
Cons: "Hated the connection from terminal 5 to terminal 3 we should not have to go through the departure lounge this added 10 mins or more into a very tight connection."
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...."
Pros: "I love it"
Pros: "Fairly short trip but was able to used the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Too many PA announcements and the volume when connected to the TV screens was way too loud! Gave us a heart attack everytime!"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose."
Cons: "Not sure why it was a Finn-Air flight when it was an AA plane and crew?"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Standard flight and good landing. On time."
Cons: "Need more space in coach."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine and the inflight entertainment provided good entertainment."
Cons: "From the begining the trip was plagued by delays. I was supposed to leave Monterey at 0600, we didnt leave until 0630. Then my Phoenix flight was delayed by two hours that caused me to shift flights in Charlotte because i would miss my connection. Lastly, they had to change a break on the plane leaving Charlotte so instead of getting home at 7 like i was supposed to, i got into Norfolk at 1139 pm."
Pros: "Friendly curbside skycap at check in"
Cons: "I didn't realize that I was sold a "basic" ticket. No early seat assignment, last boarding group, no access to overhead stowage (didn't need it) so all bags have to be checked for extra fees, bought preferred seating just to be sure my wife and I could sit together but did not get a receipt and had trouble explaining this at curbside check in. Overall unsatisfactory. Same seats but no amenities."
Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "The Monterrey airport is very comfortable and fast. The trip was pleasant. The staff very attentive."
Cons: "On this trip I wanted to see snow and I did not see it."
Cons: "Late leaving Monterey. Other than that, fine trip"
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "Crew and actual flight were great but something was broken on the rear air conditioning unit. It was a full flight and 86F in Dallas and 77F in Columbia. I was seated in rear of the plane very very hot with all the people on the plane. I felt it was difficult to breath once we were on the ground in como. We were at the gate and everyone stood up to get off but the doors remained closed for awhile. It seemed to get even hotter."
Cons: "Crew was great and the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Pleasant crew and flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was a half hour late and had to run to catch our connecting flight"
Cons: "Closed gate early and left me stranded. The AA employees could care less about you. They are hired for the rudeness and indifference."
Pros: "Very pleasant employees at the Hattiesburg/Laurel airport. We were thanked for our patience even though it wasn't directly their fault for the call-out."
Cons: "They kept delaying the flight in Hattiesburg because of someone who called out earlier in the day. My family had to take off of work early to take me to the airport and it was difficult to know how late they could work due to the flight delays."
Cons: "When I arrived in Kingston after a long day of traveling only ONE of my TWO checked bags arrived that has my clothes swimsuits shoes jewelry and a host of other important items"

Pros: "The wifi service and very enthusiastic flight attendant!"
Cons: "The food was bad"
Pros: "The airplane had screens that tracked the flight progress, which was nice once we finally left."
Cons: "The delay leaving Boston caused me major ground transportation problems in Philadelphia. Also boarding agents did a lousy job getting people to check their carry on bags, knowing with a full flight they wouldn't have room. This further delayed take off."
Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Pros: "We enjoyed the movies and games available, lots of leg room and had a lot of food to hold us over. The flight was long but very smooth."
Cons: "I did have to lay for my seat or I would have had to get a middle seat."
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Pros: "It's American company airline So,not bad. People are not good service but still fine."
Cons: "No entertainment. No real food. Only snacks and the advertised snack box wasn't available. I paid for a box of items I could only eat one thing from."
Cons: "We were in the very last row so they ran out of food options."
Pros: "Captain and crew were friendly and professional."
Pros: "A free airline ticket!!"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that American Airlines cancelled my 17 Yr old neice's flight from Dallas to Denver over a thing called "timed-out". And had her sleep in a room with a cott instead of a hotel room. And the fact that we as customers pay good money for tickets only to be subject to the airlines way of business. It is absolutely unacceptable!"
Pros: "on time..."
Pros: "The lady sitting next to me was nice to talk to - that's about it"
Cons: "The whole experience was terrible. The airport gate terminal was chaotic. While boarding, I am told I have to check my bag because apparently the flight was overbooked and there was no room for my carryon. We finally get on the plane and are told by the pilot that we have to stop for fuel - MID FLIGHT!!! I have never had a pilot stop to fuel up in the middle of a flight. And he told us it would take 10 minutes. It took an hour and a half!!!!!!!It completely derailed my connection flight. I missed it and was rescheduled, but wasn't told anything. I get to my new connection flight - that wasn't leaving for another 2 hours mind you - and ask the lady about my bag, because I was nervous it wouldn't get there with the flight change. Her response - "Well, they knew where you were going, right?""
Cons: "You couldn't hear anything as people boarded."
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"
Pros: "Great gate staff at each leg. Fantastic crew DEN to IAH"
Cons: "Nothing really. The layovers allowed me time to work on schoolwork and to enjoy lounges."
Pros: "Spa first class but seats are pretty comfortable. Wi-Fi works well ."
Cons: "Parked at gate getting in without gate availability. I hate those delays ."
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness is below average"
Cons: "Cabin service is average"
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Pros: "Flight crew. Entertainment."
Cons: "2 hours late. No room for 22 inch carry-on in the overhead."
Pros: "This was one of the worst domestic flights I’ve ever taken. United Airlines had a maintenance problem I’m delayed this plane by one hour every hour for six hours keeping us captive at the airport !! Horrible service horrible Airline I will try to avoid this at all costS."
Pros: "Crew was professional and took care of business"
Cons: "1 hour delay over mistakes on paper work due to a Maintanance issue Wifi did not work entertainment system would not play on Apple macbook .... priority luggage came out last ."
Pros: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight was to short."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No snack or drink was offered."
Pros: "Loved the fast boarding and quick flight! The crew did their best to inform us about our various delays."
Cons: "Cmon dudes, just plan ahead. Don't leave us to taxi on the tarmac for an hour before take off, only to do the same once we land! This shouldn't take quite so long."
Cons: "Outrageous baggage fees cause a huge traffic jam in the aisle at boarding and disembarking due to overloaded carryon baggage. This causes huge problems for already cranky travellers and slowing down your process of clearing your planes. No wonder air rage has been in the news so much lately. Won't be flying United anytime soon."
Cons: "wifi wasn't working so I couldn't work. MIss having a screen to watch a movie in flight. Food was for purchase only - my Delta flight on the way out had a meal and a snack - was a miss. Many children on the plane - was very loud. Seat didn't go back far enough so my head kept falling forward as I tried to nap - terrible crick in my neck by the time we did land."
Pros: "Flights to be on time"
Pros: "The boarding procedure, and flight were completely uneventful. Flight attendants were nice. Slept through the snack if there was one offered."
Cons: "Seatback entertainment by directv is getting a little old at this point. I didn't test it but I believe you can watch content on demand on your own device instead but it's hard to keep the seat back screen turned off. Be weary of tight international to domestic connections at IAD. I had an hour and a half between flights and made it to the gate when they had called group 5 for boarding. This is with Global Entry, TSA Pre-check and priority tags on my bags. I'm sure many others without the above were not so lucky."
Pros: "Short flight.... no food or ENT. But quick easy and pretty on time. Thx."
Pros: "Gate staff was nice."
Cons: "Difficult to understand steward on flight"
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, flight was on time"
Cons: "Grouchy flight attendant. No overhead room for carry on. No coffee. No hot tea. Apparently not well prepared for flight."
Cons: "Waited for clearance to take off for about 10-15 minutes on the tarmac."
Cons: "Worst trip ever! United overbooked the flight, and then I got delayed in LAX and had to cancel my trip all together! No planes in to Duluth or MSP until Monday. Had to fly home to Monterey!! Totally pissed customer right now"
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Cons: "This flight was my third delayed United flight in under 3 days. I will not be flying with United again. Absolutely unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight 5022 was delayed 1 hr leaving SBP due to flight arriving late. Very little info was relayed by airline staff about the reason for or details of the delay. This delay caused me to miss my connection in SFO and be rebooked to a later flight, which was also delayed over an hour."
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Pros: "Pros: flight landed early Boarding was easy. Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Was FAR too cold on the plane. The way bags were being distributed the large carry ons from under the plane after landing was unorganized and poorly planned. Tried to reschedule my flight, to do so is a cost of $200 not including the price difference in having to buy a new ticket. May not be flying United anymore"
Cons: "Waited 45 minutes for bags in Houston. Whatever we made up in the air was lost on the ground."
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Cons: "THe sits where very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Horrible leg room"
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Cons: "I'm still at the airport !!!"
Cons: "The movie I was watching ended 20mins before the end.."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "Timeliness and orderliness"
Cons: "It would have been helpful if hanging a garment bag were available, which was the case on my return flights to DC on American Airlines."
Cons: "My flight was delayed two and a half hours. The pilot repeatedly said we were ready to go and would then say we had to wait again."
Cons: "Even though I downloaded the app, the WiFi wasn't available so there was no entertainment. Also, the flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
