Pros: "I was allowed to change my seat online before flight to a preferred location."
Cons: "Players handed out on plane- I think they ran out before they got to me, or not offered- was unaware of price, etc... Unclear that snack tray contained other than snacks, may have purchased food if aware of offerings- maybe should have read AK air mag in seat pocket?"
Pros: "I basically fell in love with the guy sitting next to me. We talked the entire flight and connected in a way I have never connected with a complete stranger before. It was exhilarating! But besides that, I really appreciated the pilot giving weather updates and information about what areas could be seen out of the window."
Cons: "I was given a seat that did not recline without being told about this before hand. Unfortunate circumstance."
Cons: "This flight was first delayed, then not listed on the reader board. Then the flight added a stop over in Seattle for the the only reason that the crew was maximizing their allowed time to work. This delayed arrival at final destination. They could have brought on a fresh crew in Chicago but they did not do that."
Pros: "The crew was nicer. New plane."
Cons: "I've never in all the years I've been flying have I been treated like I was way below the people who work there. I think I'll stick with Delta if I can help it."

Cons: "great service, first time flying with Alaska Airlines"
Pros: "CREW, CAPTAIN AND OVER ALL FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE THAT ALASKA AIR FOSTERS IN INNER-STATE TRAVEL."
Cons: "CENTER SEATING FOR FAT OLD MEN LIKE MYSELF... AIN'T NO FUN."
Pros: "I fly this route regularly and Alaska is my first choice - the service is good, and everyone gets a celebratory drink prior to landing in the Islands. I will often upgrade to 1st class, and that is so worth it. I arrive at my destination after 5 hours feeling relaxed and able to jump right into the new environment."
Cons: "In 1st class - no complaints whatsoever. In coach - the usual: seats small, cramped, packed in with hundreds of other human beings, just waiting for it to be over. What a difference between the two!"
Cons: "Two stews, one wm slightly balding down right rude to several passengers and in particular another traveler with a service dog. Argued with man with service dog and failed to understand that "service dog" was not some pet. We attempted to assist other flyer and he was rude, bossy, and nearly insolent to us ... he finally to it but needs for re-training for him pretty darned important. One blondish wm stew with long page-boy like hair cut also verged on rudeness through her inability to hear, understand and desire to chant rules rather than to hear what was actually happening ... both of them more than mildly disappointing. Other two stews fine but seemed to want to stay out of way of the two rude ones."
Cons: "Horribly slow, poorly conducted."
Pros: "Very on time flight. Not strict with baggage."
Pros: "The crew was very good & accommodating. The seating was terrible and even though we were required to purchase it they ran out. It was the first time I have ever been UNHAPPY on an Alaska flight and I have been on many."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was very very nice and courteous. They definitely got their job done and made sure that passengers were taken care of."
Pros: "You need a not applicable option, as I did not partake in the food or entertainment. Flight arrived early!"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and they really seemed to enjoy their job. There was a screaming child and a flight attend did a great job at helping her calm down with some cool looking wings. Even though I didn't rent them, I liked how entertainment tables were avaible. Again I had plenty of space in my seat so I was comfortable the whole time, non of my limbs feel asleep! Best part is we got to ANC almost a half hour early! Two thumbs up!!"
Cons: "I really enjoyed this flight the crew was wonderful, but I wish I would of been offered something to drinks second time. The tea was just so good!!"
Pros: "I was able to get on an earlier flight once I got to the airport which I really appreciated. Crew was very nice and helpful. Pilot was able to get us there 30 minutes ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "Since I bumped up my flight I had to have a middle seat. Not the airline's fault but definitely my least favorite spot. Aisles were too narrow."
Pros: "They were totally on time. They were very friendly they were very professional and helpful. I like the fact that you can watch movies from their Wi-Fi for free on your phone. I also like the fact that there's an outlet at every seat so you can charge your phone and laptop. Much cleaner and more comfortable than most other airlines. Really my first time flying them I was impressed."
Cons: "I wish they had offered headset so that I can actually listen to the movies if they offer for free on your phone."
Cons: "The flight attendant was TERRIBLE. She basically shamed me for having a beer in the morning. I'm a nervous flier and I thought it would help settle my nerves. I was at the very back of the plane and unfortunately could hear Everything she had to say. All the other flights were fine. I was just telling my friend about her today. Very disappointing. It was my first time flying Alaska airlines. I would not recommend them."
Pros: "Who would have known there were actually nice flight attendants in the world? I'm tired of the big airlines and their lack of service. Alaska Air does it right."
Cons: "kids crying for 90% of the flight a couple rows away. pilot would keep fasten seatbelt sign lit for long periods even though there was no turbulence. Then when the slightest turbulence arrived he/she would turn it back on immediately. Makes for going to bathroom a gambling proposition and snarky comments from flight attendants for those who decided to stay in line for bathrooms."
Pros: "Boarding and comfort was good. The crew was helpful and engaging. One of the stewardesses was sooooooooooo attractive. Whew."
Cons: "Plane was a little tiny but I had a no one next to me so it was not a big issue."

Pros: "The staff on the flight were great! They were really nice, and always asking if I needed anything."
Pros: "boarding and take off was fast"
Cons: "very uncomfortable plane with a lot of turbulences, not comfortable at all as not very stable .."
Pros: "Excellent service and great landing."
Cons: "So on my way to Madison my bags got lost and mind you that the bag they lost was my guns. I was on my way for a family hunting trip and the airlines didn't have my guns when I got off the plane in Madison. They did find them but it took an extra day and I had to drive an hour back to Madison to claim them.and then on my way back to anchorage a very expensive gun case that was mine got broken the handle got busted off and there was a cracked down the side of the case about a foot long. I usually don't write reviews and have flown alaska airlines many times without error but for some reason this trip was not top notch at all"
Pros: "Serving snacks and beverages often."
Cons: "Snacks are too light. Have to spend money to satisfy your hunger."
Cons: "Good for now"
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."

Pros: "See previous comments"

Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "Our flight was late, and we had a sick passenger and had to wait until they leave however many of us had connecting flights in which we missed. The flight attendant should have allowed the one's connecting a flight leave first."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."
Cons: "Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another."
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"
Pros: "Very good flight. Nice staff that seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great smiles and personable. Modern and clean plane with WiFi and charging outlets"
Cons: "There was a mechanical issue that delayed departure. Fortunately I did not have a connection to make. The crew made sure to communicate with everyone onboard frequently so we were aware of the situation and progress. They handled everything well which was reassuring for my peace of mind."
Pros: "Nice enough crew"
Cons: "The MD88 is such a crappy plane for anyone that wasn't born a dwarf. I'm tired of filling out these and yet you do nothing about it. It is criminal to cram is in like sardines like this."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Pros: "Customer service was great"

Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"
Pros: "Boarding super excellent! Also: Best landing I've ever experienced! Props to the pilot!!"
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "My outlet didn't work and it made it impossible to make the most of the internet I purchased."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."
Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was pretty good for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare, no announcements were made in English so half of the passengers were confused. The seats were sooo uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Pros: "We were kept informed about the delays. I was was automatically rebooked on connecting flights because of the delays."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"
Pros: "Ability to change planes with a 30 minute layover."
Cons: "Sat in Row 34. Engine noise was overwhelming."
Cons: "Enforce your baggage size and number limits. A significant number of passengers take bags onboard that are oversized."
