Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nothing I can think of at the moment."
Cons: "I didn't like anyt of it."
Pros: "Accurate assessment of flight time."
Cons: "Small space and I am only 120 lbs."
Pros: "Flight from Newark to SanFran was smooth, and entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "Crew wasn’t overly welcoming (though certainly not rude at all), and boarding was rushed at the gate just to stand in huge line waiting to get on aircraft."
Pros: "Lots of room, both legroom and overhead luggage room."
Pros: "This survey is great because it lets customers have a say in the airline industry’s practices and operations and the above question should have an N/A option because I neither consumed food nor used entertainment so I didn’t experience those two features on my flight and it would be misleading for me to give either item a rating of more or less than three"
Cons: "I buzzed the flight attendant and asked her to bring me water and I detected surprise and perhaps mild annoyance at my request and to make matters worse she brought back a half-full water cup as opposed to a full one"
Cons: "No comfort given to passengers despite 2.5 hr delay in leaving and another 1 hr on the ground after landing"
Pros: "Entertainment, prompt service of flight attendant"
Cons: "Delay of flight, boarding was very long wait"
Pros: "The entertainment was fantastic."
Cons: "It was freezing cold and they didn’t have any blankets. It was about 90 degrees outside so most of the passengers weren’t dressed did the frigid temperatures inside."
Pros: "Everyone was lovely and to be honest it was the best plane experience I’ve ever had. I’ll take a polite and friendly crew over silly marketing gimmicks any day, which is what it feels like you give your travelers."
Pros: "The seats and stowage were expected in comparison to a 737-800. Boarding time was fairly quick and organized."
Cons: "Boarding announcement was localized using a small portable microphone/speaker combo. Not great if you were sitting in another gate where seating was available. Food was pay as you go. Soft drinks and water were free. No in flight entertainment in the seat. They use GoGo Flight and rent tablets for 10.00 USD. The videos would skip and you will miss key elements of a plot. I was underwhelmed by this airline and will likely not take them again for a 5.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Alaska's crew and equipment continue to be top notch. Helpful and friendly at all times."
Cons: "Newark facilities are severely lacking: poor signage outside security and gate area too crowded leading to confusing mob-scene at boarding. Ground delay of 45 minutes after leaving gate. Gogo wifi connectivity was extremely frustrating: very slow and constantly disconnecting: made it impossible to actually use wifi for work related tasks."
Pros: "Very Happy with Hot food"
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seating, good wi-if/entertainment"
Cons: "Did not take off on time, food cost extra"
Cons: "I understand the possibility of flight delay. I also believe that a proper notice should be deliver to customers as early as possible. My flight was scheduled at 6:50pm, and thus I arrived at the airport around 5:30pm and went through security check. I found that my flight is now scheduled to depart at 10:40pm. There was no explanation, and I did not recieve any notice. It can be easily sent via email or text message. Now, I have to wait for 4 HOURS at the airport. I was a quite disappointed by this unacceptable service."
Cons: "Limited choice of movies and my movie discontinued part way through and I did not have time to replay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "- wifi wasn't available for most of flight due to area coverage - babies crying but out of the airlines' control - food options were minimal but not a deal breaker"

Cons: "IT was perfect"
Pros: "The seating was very uncomfortable. No space & unable to recline. Pretty tough on a 7 hour flight see"
Cons: "See previous statement"

Pros: "There was a confusion with my reservation and I didn't have a seat assignment. But the ticket agent listened, assisted and called over the manager to resolve the situation. It all took 3 minutes and they were very accommodating. The flight attendants were all lovely."
Cons: "The boarding process took over 35 minutes and felt unorganized at the gate. It would have been nice to have more clarity as to the order we would enter and where we should stand to facilitate that."
Pros: "Overall no complaints about flying from Newark to San Diego. The extra legroom in coach was much appreciated as this is how Alaska sets up their seat configuration. Flight attendants came through numerous times with beverages. Having the free movies available on your personal device great. I also liked having the ability to print out my bag tags I had a time and just dropping off my check in baggage quickly."
Cons: "Only reason I couldn't give 5 stars was limited free snacks as they gave some small cookies. Even having some small bags of chips like they do on JetBlue would be nice. My flight was delayed 90 min, so that was painful."

Pros: "I will never forget the kindness extended to me in the wake of my brother's suicide. I purchased a ticket for him and his friend to meet me in Seattle for a Mariners game, an event which never happened.

Pros: "I love Alaska Air!!"
Pros: "Counter help was very friendly and helpful"

It was delicious, hot, just right. Thanks."
Cons: "Poor communication about serious delays."
Pros: "1. Decent movie selection 2. Ground connection support knew of our situation on arrival."
Cons: "No communication via intercom about delay both on the ground at departure and landing in Mexico City.

Pros: "Because of a leg wound, we could not make the flight. But AM ticket refund is one of the worst in the business."

Cons: "I asked the agent to find us seats with Legroom as i am over 6'2 and mostly legs. he charged us $40 extra per ticket. the seat #'s were 10 E and F so we assumed it was a comfort plus seat.. NOPE! knees against the sat in front of me.. in the CENTER of a 9 seat row. the flight was sold out.. now place to Move.. FURIOUS and feeling ripped off!"
Pros: "From the boarding process all the way to arrival it was a great experience overall. Brand new planes with free up to date movies. The economy seats truly recline (to what i was very surprised) and the food was pretty good."

Pros: "Aircraft is new and comfortable"
Cons: "Food was bad, even for airline standards."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the flight."
Cons: "It was a red eye and meals were served. Why? It's an overnight flight!! Also, when booking my reservation I was not told there would be a meal. As I am a vegetarian I was not able to request one. So I was woken up to people talking and eating and I could not myself eat anything. The "dimmed" cabin lights were bright. Crew members were not respectful of passengers sleeping as they talked in normal voices. I also found it very rude that I asked a crew member for a pillow and he said they didn't have any without even checking. Which I don't believe. Overall it was an awful experience and I will never fly Aeromexico again. I am going to tell all my friends and family to never fly this airline."
Pros: "Entertainment on board."
Cons: "Staff at JFK's Aeromexico desk grossly incompetent: non-communicative, extremely slow and not very helpful."
Pros: "Flight attendants were not friendly or welcoming. Some were extremely short and I could easily tell they just did not want to be there. Food was terrible. aircraft did not offer wifi. Announcements were not clear. Announcements for boarding and all other changes were made in Spanish and rarely in English. If announcements were made in English it was made by recording device which were not clear. Will not be choosing Aeromexico again!!"
Cons: "Overall experience terrible."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and we arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule which was a plus. Would definitely fly withy then again. Plus they offered inflight meals"
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was not able to go on this trip because I recently found out I am pregnant and the risk due to the current Zika virus makes traveling out of the question. Aeromexico was NOT understanding at all. Their only offer was a 1 year voucher from the time I purchased my ticket. I purchased my ticket in October 2015 (before the Zika outbreak and before being pregnant) and I will still be pregnant in October 2016 so that voucher is completely useless to me. I basically lost $900. Even though I repeatedly tried to explain my situation to customer service and had a letter from my doctor it didn't matter they just repeated their voucher line over and over. Needless to say I will NEVER purchase airline tickets from Aeromexico again and that is a real shame for them because I have a timeshare in Mexico which I plan on enjoying with my growing family for years to come."

Cons: "First class seat didn't have a working entertainment system."

Pros: "Able to fall asleep as soon as possible during my flight."
Cons: "For starters, when I checked in I was charged for a damn carry on!?!? Super unexpected expense, and in my opinion wrongfully executed. I was told that I had to pay for my carry on or else I could not board the plane. When I asked why, he said it was over the limit, I weighed it and then he said, u have to add the other small bag too. — THE OTHER SMALL BAG WAS A BAG FILLED WITH SOUVENIR ITEMS PURCHASED AT THEIR AIRPORT PRIOR TO ME CHECKING IN! I explained that and of course nothing happened. The viva aerobús person that ran the register is called Jose A. Carrizo #21 badge. 31/12/2021. - The problem is not the amount that I paid, but the fact that customers before me were not asked to pay, even though I could clearly read the numbers on the scale as they weighed it. My bag weighed 10 kg exactly. i weighed it when I packed it. And the other bag was a bag used to carry around souvenirs from the airport. I think this was a bad way to do business and I’m simply not happy about it."

Pros: "The only thing that i liked was that the flight was real quick"

And both carryon and luggage have to weight 10 kg - AND IF YPU GET ANYTHING ELSE AT THE DUTY FREE THEEY REWEIGHT YOUR BAGS AND MAKE YOUPAY IF IT GOES OVER!!! They always change the boarding gate and don’t have anyone telling you to go to the new gate! You have to walk and look out to the screens for the stupid sign!"
Cons: "Crew and personal at las very rude"
Pros: "Nothing was nice. Delayed flight for 3 hours and never told us what was wrong or why was it delayed. They first said it was about 30-45 minutes late, then an hour, later, another hour and so on. They didn’t offer anything on board, not even a cup of water. I understand they want to make profit and sell snacks and drinks, but come on, charge you for water!? Seriously?!"
Cons: "NOTHING! I rather pay $100 more in an airline that has great CUSTOMER SERVICE and that in addition for not giving me a straight answer about how delayed is my damn flight AND taking one fu****ng hour to put the luggage in the carousel for the passengers! I hope they go out of business!!!!!! I know they lost mine and my whole family!"
Pros: "Horrible service. Never again fly with them. Sold our seats while we were checking in three hours before our flight time. Then they checked in our under bags. At the end they sold me another ticket from someone else who didn't make it in time but the others traveling with me had to stay behind for 8 hours later for the next available flight."
Cons: "Did not like that in order for me to fly I had to pay extra for a reserved seats."
Cons: "Crowded, disorganized boarding process. The worst I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Due to heavy traffic we arrived 35 minutes prior to our departure and were not allowed to board the flight. The website clearly states that they reserve that right within 30 minutes. Their website also did not allow us to check-in online which would have also saved time. They simply told us no and said it was a lost ticket. When I questioned a credit, refund or an additional flight they said no and offered no assistance. Finally, they called security when I asked to speak to someone else."
