Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The boarding/unboarding process was very efficient. I’ve never unboarded such a large plane so quickly."

Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "on-time departure"
Pros: "NOTHING ㅗ"

So I thought I could just listen to music, but no. The flight attendant said that was gone together with the games. Not a good flight for me. I even moved to the bank of the plane, to read my book in peace, only to end up hearing 1 very loud FA talking!"
Cons: "Read above."
Cons: "Late departure, no headphones on board (thus no access to movies etc), and while waiting at gate to depart, plane became very hot with no airflow, Electronic ordering system for drinks also was not working And it’s absurd that a 6.5 hour flight has no snacks or food offered. Cheap Branson."

We were on the ground at 7:40 and I didn't get on airporter until 9:30! Also, the gogoinflight didn't work."

Pros: "Nothing got seat by the toilet"
Cons: "Everything stressed"
Pros: "All Alaska personnel were friendly. I've flown Alaska many times before. This time was especially enjoyable."

Cons: "No tv players or video players on a 4 hour flight made it feel long"
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."
Pros: "The complimentary drink. Early arrival!"
Cons: "I didn’t get a small snack bag like I did on my trip to Portland"
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: "The pilots interacted with the passengers (going both ways) in ways that didn't make it seem like, they were just flying their billionth hour. On the way there he thanked us for "enjoying the miracle of flight" with him. On the way back there was an issue with one of the wings. He kept us up to speed with everything going on, even when he made the call to bring the plane back to the gate and get maintenance guys on board. When everything was all set I was comfortable to fly with him. I was left with the impression that Alaska Airlines must do something special to ensure a higher caliber of pilot."
Pros: "Crew was grea"
Cons: "Rain delay but not there fault"
Cons: "We had 4 hour delay due to technical difficulties in san Francisco."
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."
Cons: "Rerouted to San Jose when I was supposed to fly into sfo. Once there, we waited 2 hours in the rain for a bus to pick us up and take us to sfo."
Pros: "At no point did I feel inconvenienced by this company. That's what really matters at the end of the day with an essential service like this. Polite, warm employees all around, no attempts to nickle and dime me to death."
Cons: "I did not check my luggage. The overhead bins were full, so I was forced to check my bag while I was on the plane. Alaska then lost my bag. Completely ridiculous. Especially considering the individual at the baggage counter told me that my plane might be on a different flight heading form Seattle to San Francisco. How is that possible when a bag is gate-checked? It is not. It seems highly unlikely that my bag will be retrieved."
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row with more leg room and the crew were very nice! We also felt better when the pilot came on to say there was going to be turbulence."
Cons: "Having an hour delay but it was due to weather."
Pros: "Serving snacks and beverages often."
Cons: "Snacks are too light. Have to spend money to satisfy your hunger."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, easy boarding, great service in flight and overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "The fact that your website had the wrong time posted and we were on the wrong flight"
