Pros: "Every thing"
Read more about Alaska Airlines
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Back of seat televisions."
Cons: "The seats barely reclinedwhich is the entire reason i fly business"
Cons: "This was about as uncomfortable as a Spirit flight. The seats felt like fold out chairs and they didn’t even recline."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "What entertainment??"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and easygoing. The best seat ever"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful. They were able to seat me in an exit row and took, which had ample room."
Cons: "Alaska needs to work more with their terminals to make sure their customers are getting what they need. JFK does not have TSA precheck or priority boarding, but Alaska does not tell you that beforehand. That's important!! Alaska gave me a lot of attitude about changing my flight, so I couldn't."
Pros: "Everything good !"
Cons: "Cheaper"
Pros: "It was an hour shorter than normal"
Pros: "Nice in flight entertainment options. Good movie selection."
Cons: "I remember watching the show "Band in Seattle" in previous Alaska flights (with the Gogo app), but I guess this was an ex Virgin airplane, and it didn't have that show. There was good movies though."
Cons: "Great and smooth flight with a very friendly crew!"
Pros: "I missed my flight."
Cons: "Help me get my money back for a miss understanding"
Pros: "Empty plane so lots of space to lounge and quick boarding"
Cons: "Sat on runway for hour after plane landed, just waiting for a gate. How is this even possible? With no offer of beverages or food. Or updates. Crew was hardly seen maybe once or twice on a six hour flight. When asked to take trash, they would reply, we are only doing drinks at the moment."
Cons: "We sat onboard for two hours not being told at first what the holdup was. We were then told there was an issue getting a motorized wheelchair stored in cargo. The only indication about the delay was this. If a customer is traveling with this need I would presume the airline knows in advance so why was it a problem and a surprise which delayed a plane full of people for two hours. People missed connections etc. Not good! And barely any updates"
Pros: "Good movies to watch"
Cons: "I was only offered a snack once. But drinks 3x."
Pros: "Ese of check in, comfortable seats, good service"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful, food choices, seat comfy, ease of boarding, gate check bag came right away."
Pros: "This is the worst day of the year to travel. Hundreds of people waiting to catch flights to Seattle, which were delayed with no news of when they might fly. Alaska Airlines staff had way too to handle, but still found time to help a disabled person/passenger in need. Thank you."
Cons: "TSA had no time to help a disabled person, rather abruptly sending me from line to line to line, because I was disqualified from going through walk-through a certain scanner. Then was un-necessarilly angry with me for putting my Kindle on top of my laptop, to go through the scanner. If TSA had given clearer directions, I would have known how to place electronic devices in the plastic tub. Also they took my wallet from me to go through the scanned by itself. As TSA staff pushed belongings down the conveyor, the little dish holding my wallet turned over, credit cards and the like started to fall all over and under the machine. I started to collect my congtents and was told to stay put, and hold out my hands so they could swab my hands for explosives, and to not move while they put the swab in their sensing machine. Makes me want to not fly in the future."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines was efficient & friendly, former Virgin Airlines plane."
Pros: "Crew constantly coming by if needed are willing to be flagged down. Loading the plan was so quick and efficient"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew kept a positive attitude, Moved passengers around if they wished so no one had to feel cramped."
Cons: "Half plane boarded. Mechanical problems. Every had to disembark. Hour delay before re-boarding. Then sat an extra hour waiting for crew to move plane for departure. Other airlines have offered discounts on future flights because of such delays. Alaska offered nothing. Overall, a 3 hour delay with lots of apologies."
Pros: "No free WiFi, no hand soap in the restroom, my chair would not recline, no free snacks thank god for the free water and coffee, $9 cheese plate half of which was inedible, no power outlets or usb charging ports. And the flight attendants were so rude, a simple question was met with short, hostile replies and rhetorical questions instead of friendly respnoses. I WILL NEVER FLY ALASKA AIR AGAIN."
Cons: "No free WiFi, no hand soap in the restroom, my chair would not recline, no free snacks thank god for the free water and coffee, $9 cheese plate half of which was inedible, no power outlets or usb charging ports. And the flight attendants were so rude, a simple question was met with short, hostile replies and rhetorical questions instead of friendly respnoses. I WILL NEVER FLY ALASKA AIR AGAIN."
Pros: "Customer service excellent"
Cons: "Ground crew and crews on plane not communicating with passengers. I have canceled flight which my daughter texted me that flight canceled while I wear sitting at the gate. Next morning flight had delayed I found out while checking the flight status on line again I was at the gate"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional at every juncture - from check in to landing. The flight was smooth and landed a bit early. Tv/movie choices were great."
Cons: "Airplanes are so cramped, it’s ridiculous. I’m only 5’2” and I didn’t even have the room to bend down to reach under the seat to pick up a pen I dropped. Take out a row and give everyone more room."
Pros: "Danielle the woman who was handling everyone complaining at the gate. She was the only person helping anyone with whatever she could. Also the crew, weren’t properly stocked with anything, not even water. They did their best to work with the lack of supplies and information they were given. Otherwise I felt like I was in a bad version of the twilight zone. And I love that show."
Cons: "Absolutely everything except for the crew listed above. The delay was never informed to anyone until check in- even then the gate’s LCD screen wasn’t even updated with a delay. They said they had to call British airlines to ask them to change the information! No one was allowed into the lounge for a 5 hour delay which is horrible. Considering the airport was under construction and the restaurants all closed an hour before boarding. It was horrible. I missed work because of this and my day rate is 800$ and all I got was a lousy $100 voucher. If Alaska airlines had, I don’t know let everyone into the lounge and provided us with more respect and something in return maybe it would be so bad. But right up to three of the boarding crew (not Danielle) who were YELLING at people. People who were tired and confused. It was the worst experience and I am a global flyer with my company."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed and delayed multiple times. I wa son the back and ice chips kept falling on me from above my head. Horrible."

Cons: "My only complaint was that my complimentary alcoholic beverage was a very small pour. I had a glass of Chardonnay and for the price I paid to upgrade my seat to premium, it should have been a larger pour or at least a refill!"
Pros: "Didn’t have food or entertainment for a short flight, but boarding and crew were very good."
Pros: "I appreciated the assistance getting to my connecting flight in time. Great service!"
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"

Cons: "Didn't use entertainment offered. Not interested."
Pros: "After custom, I put my check-in luggages to connecting flight conveyer, I was told to go to gate without boarding pass. I was concerned about availability of seat. I was waiting more than 1 hour at gate but no crew showed up. It was about 1 hour before scheduled flight to Sacramento. So I asked nearby crew again, I was told then to go to Alaska Airline customer service. The crew was very helpful to give me a boarding pass there."
Pros: "Enjoyed the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "The media on this flight was a little outdated"
Pros: "Yes the crew was great."
Cons: "It was a short 2.5 hr flight. Jet blue provided packaged snacks and a soft drink at no additional charge. Other airlines charge for everything.

Cons: "TV was broken."
Cons: "Wifii In plane"
Pros: "The seat was good, snacks is good."

I actually like rap but not listening loud with the speaker on with kids in the plane is not considerate."
Pros: "Crew handled a health situation very well. Never lost their composure."
Cons: "Not having our luggage lost"
Cons: "Wasn't their fault but it was a pretty turbulent flight. It's winter and we flew NY to Costa Rica, this is expecteddue to the wind, in the winter, in warmer climates. you could tell the pilot was doing his best to avoid turbulence though & the staff were ultra professional."

Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "Flight delayed and service was poor, TVs didn’t work"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "My flight was delayed"
Cons: "Our prior flight arrived 30 minutes late and we had to run to the opposite side of the airport. We were there before the departure time but the staff gave us a hard time saying they were going to lock the doors on us. It wasn't until the flight crew ran up behind us that they finally didn't have an attitude and said we were fine. Online entertainment didn't work, no shows, the map doesn't have a time or useful info. My row was skipped by the crew for snacks. The guy came from behind first, which I didn't see and then one the way back, he didn't even look at my row or the row in front of me."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The boarding policy changes are confusing. No longer boarding from the rear of the plane and no explanation of how to board sooner without buying an extra space seat. Also the seats are less comfortable."
Pros: "Left on time. Quick, smooth flight. Arrived early. Couldn't have been better!"
Pros: "The customer service was amazing!"
Cons: "The flight was about an hour delayed."
Pros: "Great service, delightful crew, flight went in a smooth and timely manner. Very satisfied."

Pros: "extra leg room that I purchased."
Cons: "gate personnel were rude. called passengers by group, then told them they were blocking the way for other passengers! flight attendants had no personality and didn't interact with passengers I will not fly with this company in the future."
Cons: "The flight delayed over two hours, which happen more than three times taking JetBlue. The flight attendant we had didn't seem like he liked his job and wasn't responsive."
Cons: "First off the TSA line was changed right in the middle of waiting in it. They combined two lines into one giant line, putting the other line in front of my line. I know part of this is TSA, but JetBlue has some pull/say in how their terminal works. This doubled my TSA wait time resulting in a 1hr 15 min wait for security. Second, the flight was 20 minutes delayed. Not the best JetBlue day."
Pros: "There was a delay on my flight from Dubai to New York... as a result I missed my flight to Rochester. Now I am being told to rebook the flight and pay full price. I am getting the short end of the stick here. This is totally rip off"
Cons: "Tv, internet did not work majority of the flight, air was not that high."

Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."

Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the landing also was very good. The selection of movie are plenty."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Pros: "Attentive, respectful and nice crew, swift take off and landing and awesome views"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Pros: "Everything escept the seat that was too small. I also had problems with the entertainment when trying to see movies."
Cons: "Seats too small ant could not watch Movies beacause the screen was defective."
Pros: "I usually have had great experiences with Delta. The meal selection was limited. By the time they made it up to my seat they had run out of what we wanted. Also, the entertainment system at my seat and my husbands wasn’t working well. One of the bathrooms had a cabinets Tvst oliiiooooiiooooioiooiiiooiio"
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."

Cons: "The were no outlets and the wifi was not working. That's a big deal for me because I needed to do work on the plane!"
Pros: "The flight was calm"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "In between Delta and Aeromexico changed my flight and made me travel more than 24 hours. In addition, I was traveling with a suitcase and nobody was able to pick it up for me. Layover time was 6 hours originally. Service from Aeromexico at JFK is the worst"
Pros: "Space looked a bit cramped in business class but I was pleasantly surprised at the length of the flat bed and the additional foot well space once I'd reclined the seat."
Cons: "Need to fix the flickering lights in the JFK club lounge, the opposite of relaxing!"
Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "Delta never used to be my first choice in airlines, but of my recent experience with them has been excellent. The people from the counter to the plane have been professional and courteous. This is why I will fly with them more frequently."
Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Lack of legroom in economy"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "No complaints!"

So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."

Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"

I feel sorry for American Airlines..Ok we landed safe..Thank God, that's something..."
Cons: "Apparently due to staffing issue I sat in a plane for 2 hours before it took off causing me and my partner to miss our connection."

Need to track down a manager to get a refund. He says he issues me a refund but it never came through. Then on the flight WiFi isn’t working, no entertainment on a cross country flight of 6 hours. Not a word mentioned, no credit offered. Was offered credit by delta for the same issue on a flight half the length of time. Super uncomfortable seats. Also no current to charge devices. My friend moved up to a different seat that was empty to try to get power for her phone and told she needs to pay 160$ to sit in that seat even though the plane is half empty. Just really poor experience overall.."

Cons: "I was told that I had to gate check my bags which had all of the necessities to travel with my child ( snacks, books, toys) due to it being a full flight. When I boarded, there were still several overhead storage bins completely empty. Very annoying. The crew could have physicallt assessed and checked before assuming due to flight capacity."

Cons: "TINY seats! I'm 5'11 and I had a hard time being comfortable and I find it incredibly unfair to have to now pay more for the exit row??? The person in front kicks back their seat and suddenly the TV screen on the back of the seat is in my lap"
Cons: "The father in the row who wouldn't leave his kids alone and didn't let anyone sleep"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I was originally scheduled to fly to Cleveland from LGA at 8:30PM. At 12:30PM I got a text from United informing me that my flight had been cancelled. My only rebooking option on the same day was a 9:45PM flight out of Newark. Newark is significantly farther away from my apartment (2 hours vs. 30 minutes) but I took it because it was my only option. After a 2+ hour trip to Newark and going through a disastrous check-in process I found out my flight was delayed until 10:30, then 11, then 11:41. Hardly any real announcements were made until the end when the gate agent stopped hiding. No apologies were made and wasn't even offered water for the inconvenience."

Pros: "I liked: The rambunctious kid behind me in the security line who was the Asian version of Chris Farley playing Rudolph Giuliani's kid on Saturday Night Live."
Cons: "I disliked: The fact that the flight departed at 6:00 am. It's my own fault for choosing such an ungodly hour."
Cons: "I had round trip from Sacramento to Cancun, the staffs service was poor, there are even no greeting and smiling when I every time checked in. That is really bad experience with united airline"
Pros: "they gave us the whole can to drink on the flight for drinks"
Cons: "the stupid old white man at baggage check in in New YOrk who was EXTREMELY rude and made me HATE flying with UNited"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the stuffs were mean and helpless,your luggage fee was so high ,only give one checked bag for free,this is international airline and you charged the first for 100 dollars and the second one for 200dollars and you let me,a poor little girl felt lonely in the airport and found it nowhere to complain,I missed two flights in one day and the air attendant 's attitude were bad,this was the worst experience ever in my life,I won't recommend United airlines to any of my friends"
Pros: "It was good to be in Houston for a brief moment!!"
Pros: "The pilots at the front were friendly as we departed, thanking the passengers."
Cons: "The line up process at LaGuardia was unorganized based on the preassigned number boarding system. There was no space to organize 1-5 as assigned on the boarding passes. Going and coming from LaGuardia, the flight gate was changed multiple times, then there was at least an hour and a half delay on the ground and an hour in the plane. We had to reroute to Neward because of air traffic situations, but the ground crew was not ready nor efficient in helping the throngs of people find transportation or understand the process The crew was sour, and when simply asked for a spoon, the guy said, "later" and of course, he never brought one. There was no friendliness or cordiality from these people. We were like cattle to them. I have never seen it so bad. I have watched what used to be a great airline with Continental, decline to a consistently subpar experience with United. I will look for other airlines to fly in the future. My experiences with Southwest have been much better in the last two years."
