Pros: "All the movies and tv shows were 100% free. A very good selection of things to watch."
Cons: "The WiFi was too expensive."
Cons: "Nothing, all was perfect!"
Pros: "This is how flying should be. No ridiculous fees, free drinks and entertainment, easy and fast boarding, comfortable seats, attentive attendants."
Pros: "Nice crew. Firm landing in very windy conditions."
Cons: "So, this plane was a Virgin America aircraft taken over by Alaska since the merger. My fiance and I were on a red eye non-stop to Philly from LAX. That said, the plane was in terrible condition. The seat back in front of my seat was broken and hanging down on my knees, there was no opportunity for entertainment unless you brought your own plug in headphones (none on the plane to use or purchase), we purchased upgraded seats and when we checked in the night before were told they were not available and we would be in economy (still waiting for that $200 refund 7 days later), the arm rest between our seats was broken and would not stay up, the headrest of my seat was broken and there was exposed metal, and when we purchased champagne to celebrate our vacation it was warm. One other item I noticed was the woman across the aisle's seat would not sit upright. She was asked to move to another seat for both take off and landing. Not sure if this was a Virgin America crew of Alaska, but terribly disappointed iin the crews lack of care and would not fly them again across country if this is what is to be expected."
Pros: "Free movies, comfy seat, more leg room than most"
Cons: "They checked my bag unnecessarily at the gate, but at least I wasn’t charged."
Cons: "I missed the connection for a delay in Qantas for Melbourne."
Pros: "Overall good service. Excellent free entertainment selection."
Pros: "Thomas was great! Upon arriving to the gate, I proceeded to ask if there were any upgraded seats available for purchase. He then gave me a list and asked me to choose where I’d like to sit. Seconds later he printed out a new boarding pass with my chosen seat without charge. Right up front in premium"
Cons: "Not a thing. And I’m not a huge fan of getting on planes to begin with"
Pros: "Had a window seat...got lots of sleep!"
Pros: "the newer and clean plane, the staff and the video selection"

Pros: "The movie selections,keep me occupied"

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Pros: "The choice of movies seemed great"
Cons: "As suggested by Alaska airlines, I downloaded the Gogo inflight app the day before my flight. Though when I boarded it said it wasn’t available for my flight, leaving me without any entertainment because I had Bluetooth only headphones. Also no USB ports:/"
Cons: "Chair was not working could not adjust Media entertainment system was not working at all. We were told these items had been broken for over two weeks. Makes you wonder about the mechanics of the rest of the airplane"
Pros: "Just fine"
Cons: "Plane was delayed. Plane was very hot. Wasn't able to get water for over an hour. Seat was broken and didn't recline."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful and remained true to their promise to try and be as quiet as possible so everyone could sleep. This was very nice, as the flight was already short enough that most people would get less than 6 hours of rest between takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Great service. Nice flight attendants."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines continues to do it rite! To my surprise, while checking in my 60 lb bag of surfboards, I was only charged $25, not the already low price of $75 I am usually charged. This new discounted price enabled me to save $100 round trip on board charges. Unlike other airlines that charge $100 Per surfboard, Alaska Airlines has implemented a program that serves the sports enthusiasts. From surfers, golfers, hunters, fisherman, and so on. Our gear goes with us for a fantastic price. Also, the food is actually pretty tasty too & the flight attendants treat you well."
Pros: "Service was good, lots of leg room and they even had in flight entertainment for free!, unlike all other domestic airlines where they always try to nickle and dime you. Great airline."

Thanks to her, she helped me say my goodbyes to my daughter. Roberta Gilbert -- flight 3490 Seattle to Fresno, Ca"

He had two deep cuts in his fingers, couldn't focus on sitting down, awful hygiene, was sold two vodka cocktails, and he hit his eye on the straw because he fell to sleep then woke up to drink more. I felt very uncomfortable throughout the entire flight and would like to speak with someone from Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Plane was a brand new 737 that was delivered in 2016. It had very high-tech LED-based mood lighting, which gave off a soft glow yet still allowed people to sleep if they chose. Flight boarded efficiently, departed DFW on time, and arrived in Portland on schedule. Service from the crew was pleasant and prompt. I like the new style of power outlets in every seat that Alaska uses. You can plug in a laptop or other device using a standard plug, and they also have a USB outlet for charging phones or tablets. Would fly again."

I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
