Pros: "Our Captain was something else... he took the time to be present with us while the crew got ready. He knew he had time and really did a great job of helping extol the virtues of Alaska. Then on the flight the crew - stewards and stewardesses - were very attentive and professional also keeping a friendly, welcoming attitude."
Cons: "Lack of food choices for premium and the realityn1st class is always booked and being an MVP doesn’t gain us much"

Pros: "Arrived at destination over an hour early."
Cons: "Restrooms were inoperable."
Pros: "Love Alaska Air!!"
Pros: "Boarding was a little slow but the overhead bins were a total win! Love the bigger compartment! The seats were comfy and the flight crew were great! Plenty of complimentary drink choices and delicious snacks that could be purchased. Free in flight wifi was awesome and loved being able to charge my tablet at my seat."
Cons: "Needs wider seats, more help with boarding so it could go smoother and faster. More than one passenger struggled to raise the arm rest."
Pros: "Flight had a mechanical issue. They kept us informed, provided vouchers for food, and a discount on a future flight. We also were offered a free drink once the flight finally did take off. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour delay, however, we deplaned after about 50 minutes."
Pros: "Not much to like this time around"
Cons: "Boarding attendants announced that the flight was delayed just 10 minutes before boarding time because of weather. Flight was from Seattle to Los Angeles and the weather was clear on the flight path. Two hours later, an announcement was made that it was actually because of congestion at the airport (poor planning) and yet, they did not offer anything to the passengers for the inconvenience. We boarded the plane two hours late, only to sit on the tarmac for another 40 minutes. This situation could have been handled so much better by Alaska Airlines."

The ladies in the back were really rude"
Cons: "3 times in the last 10 years i have had flights with this airline from portland twice an seattle once everytime they have some excuse about air crews an the flights leave 2 hours late after a long layover this has been a problem for a long time if i knew the right people like in the faa to call i would . honestly i seriously recommend to do not fly this air line to spokane unless you are desperate .once ok twice wait a second three times two different citys there is something here an it need fixed yesterday"
Pros: "Crew was very upbeat and helpful."
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was not great- I got a burrito that was too hot to eat at first and was mediocre plus a dry, very crumbly slightly sweet snack with very little flavor- no choices for a gluten-free diet. The worst part was getting through the Mexico City airport and immigration, which Alaska can't do much about, but I barely had time to make my connection even with a 2 1/2 hour layover."
Pros: "In my flight form ANC to FAI the check in was seemless. I was given a bag for my car seat. I was able to check my pack n play no issues. Checking my bag"
Cons: "My flight back my cab driver was late. I got there at 530 first of all the baggage drop lady was rude and looked me up and down before choosing to talk to me. I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."

Pros: "First flight (out of 5) they didn't run out of hot meals before they got to me."

Cons: "I wish there were vegan options"
Pros: "People were efficient and friendly"
Cons: "Had to spend the night in Bozeman because the pilot had too many hours so plane was late missed flight from Seattle to Walla Walla. Horizon terminal crew was clueless. Hope to never have to fly on Horizon if trying to get somewhere on time."
Pros: "Friendly Crew! Comfortable Seating! Genuine!"
Pros: "Check in was very smooth and stress free. There was a representative available to assist with printing our bag tag and getting our agricultural tag for our bags. Boarding and take off were on time and arrival was early. The only negative is that my wife and I were unable to sit together on the flight. That being said we are impressed enough to consider becoming members of Alaskan Airlines."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "did not supply pens to fill out the US custom form and they don't ask if you need one, I never carry a pen on me"
Pros: "It was my first time flying with Alaska. I was pleasantly surprised with the boarding times, organization, super-friendly crew, free entertainment (a few select movies with complimentary tablets to view them on), and outlets for charging mobile devices in every seat. Easily the best flight I've had in a couple years. I will fly with Aaska again."
Cons: "I felt like the aisle was unusually small ( I was sitting in an aisle seat and was occasionally bumped by people walking by me. Then again, I was in a deep sleep most of the time and could have easily been leaning into the aisle....I'm not really sure. Overall though, best flight I've had in a while. They really do a great job."
Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"
Pros: "Overall as expected. Decent flight, nothing that made me go "wow", but on time, clean, reasonable boarding."
Cons: "I found the reaction of one of the flight attendants to be unprofessional. When I asked if she could pour a bit of water into my water bottle, rather than say, "I'm sorry, I am not allowed" or "unfortunately, no" or really anything verbal, she made a "tsk, tsk" face and offered me a plastic cup. Besides being annoyingly wasteful as a policy (if indeed it is one - this has not been an issue on other airlines), her customer service skills left something to be desired. This strange interaction left me with a poor overall impression of the flight experience."
Pros: "1st, I got upgraded to TSA precheck so security was a breeze. Was able to change my middle seat to a window seat in an exit row at 24hr check. It was a full flight, but no fight to get suitcase space. And the flight attendants were very clear & concise in their directions & food/drinks went very fast. Thanks, Alaska Airlines"

The walk and ride took us to a new terminal where we walked and walked and I am 78 and hard to keep up. Then we were off and a nice flight and we made up a bit of time. Upon arrival in Aspen and there was not gate for us so we had to wait 25 minutes to deplane, The staff and pilots were terrific and tried to make the best of it. At least we got there. Snacks and water would have been nice with all the waiting we did....Linda Decatur"

Was on the plane for 45 minutes with no explaination from the crew. It was an electrical problem. Had to inboard and wait 45 more minutes. Allow weld to rehoard again. Waited another 20 ministrations before leaving. I am all for safety, but communications need to improve."

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."
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Meal was hot and tasty. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Insufficient arm/legroom. Limited selection of interesting movies."
Cons: "Even though I presented a valid handicap sticker to the front desk, they treated me as though I was some kid who stole it from my grandma or something when I asked to board early. The steward was rude and pushy. I asked a question and he acted as though I was bothering him."
Pros: "on time flight, excellent crew"
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: "Las aeromosas muy amables y profesionales."
Cons: "Los asientos incómodos que no funcionaban el cambio de posición. El pago de sobrepeso escandalozo; por 10 Libras $160 más extra fees...."
Pros: "Pretty average flight and experience overall. Food was as expected. Average flight attendants - no one really stood out, which is odd for an international flight."
Cons: "Premium economy seat didn't decline making this the most uncomfortable and unpremium experience I've had. Sore neck and back. Searching for media such as artist or movie worthless - yields no results, yet the album is included in the listings - I stumbled on it earlier in the flight and wanted to listen to it again. Same search experience on a flight three months ago."
Cons: "We got there 2 hours early and almost missed our flight"
Pros: "Plenty of room in first class. Flight crew was efgicient"
Cons: "Flight was not catered, therefore we ended up with only a small cup of water. It wasn't worth the upgrade to first class. Also, the upgrade indicated our luggage would be a priority at baggage claim. We had connection to make for an international flight, but here I sight at baggage claim 1...waiting and waiting."
Cons: "see review headline above"
Pros: "The service from flight attendants very goood. Even the chicken dinner was as good as many restaurants serve with tastey sauce and cooked just right with nice tossed salad and even apple pie desert. We got served free beverage 3 times on 9 hour flight from Paris to Dallas. The entertainment options were amazing: So many new movies or video games or e-reader were added plus with individual screen in front of each seat! They will be my first choice. New seats also had extra padding and were more comfortable! Wow1"
Cons: "A little more leg room would be nice."
Pros: "The crew was OK"
Cons: "Entertainment extremely poor."
Pros: "The planes and staff were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Hated the layovers!!!"
Pros: "There was a crew member Dario, from Lima to Buenos Aires that was super nice."

Pros: "The crew tried and did as good a job as they could with what they had to work with."
Cons: "The shuttle transportation didn't give me any information about baggage claim, took me 45 min to find the right baggage claim! So frustrating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."
Cons: "1.5 hours late leaving"
Pros: "Quick load, full flight, courteous crew."
Cons: "As the norm, American Airlines once again did not have their numbers prior to departure. Upon arrival American Airlines did not have a gate readily available for us. This caused a delay in arrival and a delay in departure. American Airlines is renowned for this type of treatment. I had hoped it would improve when US Airways had acquired them. Unfortunately, such is not the case. You can do better."
Cons: "Flights that long should have on board entertainments and food"
Pros: "The flight are crew were amazing though! Food was surprisingly good as well."
Cons: "The entertainment was kind of bad compared to other international flights I went on. You weren't really able to watch what you wanted and it wasn't the best experience."

Pros: "Great gate staff at each leg. Fantastic crew DEN to IAH"

Pros: "I liked that I knew in advance to download the United app so I could actually watch a movie!! This was the second leg of the trip, and I didn’t know this the first flight and couldn’t use the United entertainment."
Cons: "An hour and half layover is fine, but add an3 hour delay on top of that, Kinda stunk. But hey, me and all my bags made it this trip!"
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."

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."
Pros: "Courteous cabin crew."
Cons: "I pre-paid $250 to bring my pet, for my extended vacation to visit family, and was careful to book a ticket that allowed me to pre-select my window seat. After I boarded the aircraft, I discovered to my dismay, that my standard sized pet carrier did not fit under the seat in front of me. There was a metal box bolted under the seat, that significantly reduced the size of that space. Having to pay so much extra to bring my pet on board in the cabin, I would have expected United to ensure that my pet carrier would fit under the seat. Based on a previous United flight, I expected to be able to watch a free movie on my smart phone, using the United Wi-Fi entertainment, and my wireless Bluetooth earphones. This aircraft did not offer that service. Instead, there was a screen on the seat back, and a physical headphone jack. I had no way to watch anything, or even follow the aircraft position, without paying extra, and requesting wired headphones. I checked the United website prior to my flight, and saw that they provided Wi-Fi, so I was prepared to take advantage of the free United entertainment, but I was disappointed."

Cons: "We booked a flight on ANA Airlines specifically for our trip to Japan. However, upon arriving at the airport to board our plane we discovered the flight was operated by another carrier. Out intent and desire was to fly on ANA."
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: "They gave away my seat to a standby before the the time they said. I rebooked with southwest"
Cons: "Crabby flight attendants"
Cons: "This flight was my third delayed United flight in under 3 days. I will not be flying with United again. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "I arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The female attendant was very friendly, welcoming and engaging. The male flight attendants, not so much!"
Pros: "Flight not too full"
Cons: "Delayed flight, cramped seats, charge for entertainment even though the airline magazine said it was free, crew was a little gruff"
Cons: "Flight turned around and I was merely given a voucher for a hotel. This was united's fault; it was not caused by weather. Now I'm responsible for paying $80 for a hotel room. I'm furious. I will never fly united again."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The plane left late due to electrical issue – light was on and had to be checked, and then we arrived in Houston very late and the captain said we had to push back to 3 inches. That's ridiculous. We are already late and people up out of their seats and we had to go is down again."
Pros: "Clean airplane. Great crew. Happy with the trip from takeoff to landing. Our landing was very rough due to strong winds on runway. At one point, plane was a little sideways. But with the great crew in control of the plane...Safe landing. Scary...but lived to tell."
Cons: "That you don't at least get one show that is free on flight. A cooking show is what was the choice, but no control over the volume. And I can't read lips. So that really sucked."
Pros: "Timeliness and orderliness"
Pros: "For a coach seat, it was ok since I sat with my wife in a 3 seats row."
Cons: "The fact that you couldn't upgrade with miles."
