Cons: "On board entertainment"
Cons: "No problems on the flight."
Pros: "Great crew and snacks"
Cons: "Better handling of baggage. They mislabel my bag which led to frustrations."
Pros: "So the flight was shorted food... not that big of deal as it was ally 2:45hr flight. The crew totally made up for it but being super fun and friendly. Gave people doubles on their drinks if they wanted. The REAL perk is flying into Everett/Paine Field. What a great experience it is. Fast and simpl"
Cons: "The seats on the E-175s are a little short for me... I’m 6’4"... everything else was fine!"
Cons: "bus shuttle ride to plane could have been quicker. standing on a bus in the freezing cold with the doors open was a bad experience"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "The crew did it’s best but there was 2 hours delay due to issues at San Francisco airport."
Cons: "LAX airport plane docking took 30 minutes and not enough information to get to International Terminal."
Cons: "No food, just snacks."
Pros: "The fact that that the crew first offered us water, then, two beverages. I was exceedingly happy about the switch to wooden stirrers. Good for Alaska for doing their part in dealing with Climate Change."
Cons: "Switch from pretzels to a cookie. Being diabetic we are unable to eat the cookie."
Pros: "first class food selection: muffins and drip coffee. and water."
Pros: "Staff/Crew were all very friendly. Plane was clean and air temperature was comfortable."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable! NO cushion = a very sore bottom, especially on an almost 6 hour flight. VERY disappointed in the entertainment. This airline expects everyone to have a device to play their downloadable entertainment or else pay to rent a device. This is horrible for such a long flight, when you happen to be one of those people who do not have a device for this. I will not fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Complete failure to announce that passports needed to be verified. Telling you as you board is infuriating. This was Alaska’s fault, not TSA’s."
Pros: "Standard airlines"
Cons: "Plane in front of us forgot their food so our plane had to sit on the taxi way for 30+ minuets."
Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."
Pros: "Was on time and very kind"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "I like complimentary food and entertainment"
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."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Brenda at LAX called me jerk and was a terrible representative for your company... To say the least"
Pros: "Crew had great attitude"
Cons: "By the time I boarded I was unable to take my bag on as all overhead compartment space was gone. My bag was not prioritized, instead I had to wait FOREVER at SFO for the bag to arrive. There were over 6 flights assigned to the same baggage carousel. I think since we have to pay now for bags to be checked, I should have been compensated for NOT being able to take my bag onboard and for being forced to wait a very long time to retrieve it...exactly what I had hoped to avoid by carrying on."
Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Pros: "Read above. It was good. I was grateful to be on the flight because I missed my flight the day before."
Pros: "That we landed safely."
Cons: "They didn't feed us. Maybe 5 hours was too short. I downloaded the gogoentertainment app, but every movie I chose said that the movie already expired."
Pros: "From SEA to SAT the pilot (or co-, couldn't tell which one) provided information on what we were flying over (e.g.Mt. Rainier, Columbia River, Salt Flats, corner of New Mexico, etc. ). I LOVE THAT! There was no food or entertainment on this short flight."
Cons: "The bad news about the commentary by the pilot was that the PA system in the plane was bad so I couldn't hear it all."
Pros: "Flight attendant really kind and helpful, brought me tea and honey for laryngitis."
Cons: "Pilot should welcome, check in at some point, and definitely comment on turbulence or any turning on or off of seatbelt sign other then for takeoff or landing. Was really weird to get no updates other than from flight attendance when at times we had bad turbulence but silence from cockpit. I'm afraid of flying so I listen for this every time I fly and this was first experience of so little from pilots."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice & accommodating. I would definitely book them again."
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The fans in the plane didn't work at all so it was extremely uncomfortable for me. I'm an Alaskan I think it make more sense to be cool and cover up if you get cold. If your hot there is nothing you can do about it, it ridiculous."

Pros: "The Alaskan airlines staff was very friendly and accommodating. I felt as though they went above and beyond to ensure I traveled comfortably with my baby."

Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"

Cons: "Worst turbulence ever."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "Could have not delayed the flight 3 times."

Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."
Cons: "My bag is misplaced and no one has an answer"

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally polite and helpful!"

Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Pros: "Price for a very short notice trip, ease of online booking, very informative staff. Also, able to readjust my seating assignment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the pilot assigned had a car wreck coming to work that morning. The delay was not bad, but my timeline was tight. Still, very grateful that a suitable replacement was found. The delay could have been much worse."
Pros: "Even if we departed with 1h and 30 min delay, the pilot made it up and we arrived with only 15 min delay on the initial arrival time. Great. I could get my initial connecting flight to."
Cons: "Just the stress of getting one message after the other mentioning that the flight was delayed over 1 and then 1 and a 1/2h."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, the service and the food was great."
Cons: "There was a delay from Charlotte to Dallas but not too much so it was fine. Once we arrived in Dallas, however, it took an absorbent amount of time for the crew to open the door. On top of that, the skyline in Dallas was broken down and it caused me to miss my flight completely. I’m a student so I don’t have much money so I had to “sleep” in the airport because I couldn’t get a hotel voucher due to the fact that I missed my flight due to the airport and not the airline itself. My next flight is tomorrow morning but now takes away time from an incredibly busy and tight schedule that I was on. Not happy at all with the Dallas airport."
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times and then again upon landing at destination."
Pros: "Our first upgrade to 1st class since I stopped working for IBM in 2009!"
Cons: "Surprised to see they charge $50 carry on fees at the gate."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Standard flight and good landing. On time."
Cons: "Need more space in coach."
Pros: "This a short flight and they only offered drinks. No entertainment was available"
Pros: "With my frequent flier status, I get some perks on American, but by using the Boeing 777 instead of the Airbus BA uses, we had comfortable coach seats, easy boarding and good entertainment."
Cons: "Food is still just okay, but after all, it's 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: "On this flight back to Arizona they arrayed mutt husband and I together, unlike on our way to Spokane. That was much better. We had more leg room this time."
Cons: "The seats are hard, fine for young people, but difficult for older people with arthritis and Auto immune diseases, such as fibromyalgia."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Space was very tight, music choices were terrible, no plug to charge my phone, no individual screen for entertainment, movie screen went black half way through the movie I was watching and it never came back on"
Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth. Food quality was decent, could have been better though."
Cons: "One of customers was rude. One of hostesses kept on bumping into my arm, waking me up twice and hit me on accident with the food cart without apologizing. Did not provide enough snacks."
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
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"
Cons: "The seats are terrible. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. Awful all around."
Cons: "No problems."
Pros: "The plane itself was comfortable and there was ample storage for bags. The food was also fine."

Pros: "Pleasant crew and flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was a half hour late and had to run to catch our connecting flight"
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "I wish I could remember the names of our flight attendants- but they were wonderful and really took time to get to know passengers! They were so friendly and went above and beyond in any of our requests. Loved them!"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have individual screens for such a long flight, but I wouldn't say that's a complaint. The flight was fine."

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"
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: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was efficient. Flight was fine"
Pros: "Getting the flights was easy, used kayak. Tickets ultimately were purchased through priceline."
Cons: "Flight was a round trip flight and American Airlines (or American Eagle, which is it?) changed my flights and I went from an hour layover and arriving at the time I desired to instead a three and a half hour layover and arriving after midnight."
Cons: "The crew was rude and were just sassy."
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Cons: "Not on time, no entertainment system, little space"
Pros: "Good crew, very pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The three and a half hour delay was not great, but since it was due to weather issues in Chicago, certainly not the airlines fault. However, the communication about the delay was terrible. There was nobody and the gate, so we were relying on automated notifications from the airline. They kept pushing it later by 30 - 45 minutes at a time. We could have gone to the airport much later but just didn't know that."
Cons: "Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."
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: "Parked at gate getting in without gate availability. I hate those delays ."
Cons: "My baggage was left in Houston"

Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
Pros: "We made it home safe"
Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "seats not really comfortable,and we arrived late to London,good thing I didn't miss my flight but still, Departed late, and when arriving plane flew around in circles before landing according to the captain it was because the run way was busy but I mean if we would've left on time there wouldn't have been problems arrived first."
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: "Boarding was organized and prompt. Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Flight was to short."
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"
Pros: "Good rate"
Cons: "Didn’t like that I had to check my own bag in and still pay a fee. If your going to charge me then your staff should check my bag. Also I’m not a heavy person i workout so my shoulders are big. Your seats are to small"
Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Pros: "Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats."
Cons: "I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found."
Cons: "Late, no leg room and bad wifi"
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."
Pros: "All the way we had a great atencion from all the crew and airport facility thanks"
Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"
Pros: "tsa pre"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"
Cons: "Booked on flight next day but much less convenient than original direct flight."
Cons: "They charge de luggage, didnt gave anything to eat, the luggage in orlando came like 2 hours late. The flight back from Houston was cancelled with no reason, they overbooked the flight.. and worst of all the only offer us a $10 disccount in a cheap hotel.. no food nothing"

Pros: "Gate staff was nice."
Cons: "Difficult to understand steward on flight"
Pros: "Awesome Illy coffee and stroopwaffel cookie for my flight to Guatemala for my first medical mission trip on a snowy cold morning was a welcome snack. It was so much better than the snack mix or nut packs that you usually get."
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"
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: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."
Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."
Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why? Do I expect people to be rude? I mean, I need to like something extraordinary, something that others don't do. I can't remember anything remarkable. Just nothing."
Pros: "The crew that helped get everyone booked on another flight did an outstanding job. Too bad we had to sit around for 3 hours to find out that the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Not enough communication as to the flight being canceled. Too long to inform us that it was canceled. We were told that the flight was always on time with the exception of the past few days. We were told that the service was starting to slip."
Pros: "The easiness of the airline to adapt to the fact that we will be going late and the swiftness in organize all the passengers in a way that no one will miss their connection flight"

Pros: "Timeliness and orderliness"
Pros: "Got us safely and conveniently to Vic at a good price and on time. Flight attendant was fine and cooperative, though no special warmth."
