Pros: "Great crew, at the gate and onboard."
Cons: "The $8.50 I spent for the ono bowl was a train wreck. Not seasonsed. The sauce was congealed. Pretty much inedible Sad when everything else was superior."

Cons: "Lack of snacks for free"
Pros: "The logo on the plane"
Cons: "No snacks , no tv . slow flight"
Pros: "We were completely surrounded by parents with toddler. The tots were crying and one was screaming. The flight attendants brought ear plugs. We waited for the bar service. The planes was clean, new with WiFi hookups. Leg room is a thing of the past. I am glad to be thin and limber. The cheese plate was reportedly delicious."
Cons: "Being in a sea of crying babies. I would have preferred some space away from the noise."

Pros: "Everyone super friendly no other complaints"
Cons: "Boarding delay. Also asked last minute before boarding for passport in a new line so had to wait in the back. Consider some of us are crunched for time when we get to destination (rental car before closing, etc)."
Pros: "Great service on time"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Flight attendant were super nice and friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer.. highly recommend"
Pros: "My first time treating myself to first-class, so it was very nice."

More on that in my next flight review."
Pros: "Comfort,service , and plane all great !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Alaska's boarding/deplaning procedure is slow and inefficient."
Pros: "The gate agents and staff were very friendly"
Cons: "When I checked my bag. They had to hand write a slip for the next leg of my flight (Calgary to London). This added about 10 minutes of time. It's 2017, how can it still require paper write up??"
Cons: "I couldn't understand the captain's message over the speaker....he either had an accent or the reception was terrible."
Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Lots of flights leaving the same time through side by side gates - and all delayed. yuck"
Pros: "I like the seats - the headrests wrapped around. That was good."
Cons: "They KNEW there wouldnt b enough room for the overhead luggage, so they offered to check bags for free. This is wrong: people bring overhead luggage because it won't check or cant check. It seems wrong to offer to check it because they already know its not all going to fit. also, the Alaska boarding procedure is really messed up, compared to Southwest which always runs smoothly."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight Nice desk people they did give us regular updates and clear expanation of why we were delayed"
Cons: "They took our small carry on bags planeside with a PROMISE to return planeside in Calgary - but didn't - they came through just like a checked back 25 minute wait in Calgary and one of the LAST bags off the flight! Plane was 20 minutes late leaving"
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "Fantastic crew and service"
Cons: "Very rough landing"
Pros: "Flight was great. Crew were very polite"
Cons: "Probably had nothing to do with airline but I left a bag in car, my fault but had problems reaching the car rental field office. I tried contacted within a hour to no avail. Not until the next morning did they answer the phone. Can u please help. Payless car # 40278755. Oakland drop off. Johnny Templet 985-518-3949"

Cons: "Free TV shoes were extremely limited. Virtually nothing complimentary to watch for 5 hours"
Pros: "they were very friendly and funny :)"
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."
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
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: "More cushion in exit row seats."

Pros: "The crew made the whole experience fantastic."
Cons: "I loved all of it"
Pros: "Seat comfortable and amazing crew"
Cons: "Choice of movies somewhat limited"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "Nothing my timing was a bit off it all worked out well"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence and people screaming in fear, it always makes me feel better when the crew says something reassuring to make people less anxious."

Cons: "The seat in Economy Comfort was awful. Not enough padding and no place to put my feet because of a very large entertainment control box on the floor."

Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "Slight delay of flight"
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing!! So kind and helpful! The captain also took a beautiful path around Rainier during a gorgeous sunrise!! The seats were very comfortable and the flight was smooth even though it was a smaller plane (Skywest). I will absolutely fly Skywest again!"
Cons: "It’s an older plane and needs a little work; but don’t we all?! ;)"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
Pros: "The flight was fine. I don’t do 5 stars ever since they started pushing the limits on seating. I also have a problem with the wide swing in prices for the same flight but know that is marketing."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded for anyone to be truly comfortable"
Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."

Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"
Pros: "That the planes flew and i met my connections and arrived home."
Cons: "Below average crew with little to no interest in doing anything but getting the flight over. Cool, and perhaps lazy or tired. We were told there was not good offered on the flight because it was not long enough. Minneapolis to Spokane - seriously????5 days earlier on same flight there was full food offerings. Audio quality and ear bugs are barely useable. Very difficult to hear any of the spoken words of the movie and I have good hearing."
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Cons: "Paid $28 for a Wi-Fi package that didn't work. No refund...."
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."
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: "Delayed over 3 hours with no explanation from Delta or any information. Once boarding finally began, another 30 min went by before they closed the plane again without any explanation. As a connecting flight after a long international flight, it was awful. Unfriendly and impatient staff."
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: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."

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: "Its the way flying should be. The flight attendants were very pleasant and funny"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working all the time. Didn't bother me I was reading"
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
