Pros: "I'm glad it was a short flight!"
Cons: "It was hot. Really, really hot. They were talking about taking us back to our destination, but that call, positive or negative, should have been made before the flight as we didn't have equipment failure post-boarding. The idea that we'd go back is ludicrous if we'd already pushed from the gate. Get it together, Alaska."

Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "tablets were perfect for my seven year old."
Pros: "Arriving earlier and baggage pickup without delays. Love it."

Pros: "Very friendly crew. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Small selection of movies. Must use one's own portable device to view movies, or rent one of their tablets."
Pros: "The ticket desk people were very nice in assisting us with ars baggage weigh in and tagging. The 2 flight attendants did a great job of handling a full plane of passengers. Nice legroom on the Embraer flight. We are arrived 1/2 early. The food and cheese plate was pretty good for the price."
Cons: "We were an hour late leaving the gate but the pilots made up for half of that time in the air. I was not bothered since that was the end of our trip and we had nowhere to be."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "Food options just ok. Seats super small"
Pros: "My first time treating myself to first-class, so it was very nice."
Cons: "Delayed an hour at departure, and then got bumped out of first class on my connection, which they did change to a later flight; however, sadly no one looked very concerned about the fact that I'd like to have continued my flight in the class I PAID for. More on that in my next flight review."

Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled!"
Pros: "The crew on Alaska is always great. They always engage in conversation and seem to be in good moods, and not cranky. I like the little prop planes. Plus the complimentary beer and wine is fantastic. What happened to giving the consumer a little something on any other airline? I mean I feel like I have to fight for a cookie."
Cons: "We were rushed on both flights I took this week with Alaska. It was to make up for lost time. It just was a jumble at the gate. It made up for the time but it feels like cattle being herded. And I hate that. But I was happy with being on time so, good and bad I guess."
Pros: "leg room on premier seats. Entertainment had big variety and high quality."
Cons: "No food on 5 hour flight unless you pay"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice."
Pros: "The fact that there is air service is great for someone who has disabilities. It is a shame you have to rely on assistance of train or coach staff that may be or not be there!"
Cons: "Due to so few fly it is expensive"
Cons: "Two days before flight online seating chart showed no seats available that were together in main cabin so I bought "economy plus" seats. There were actually 32 empty seats in economy, many people had while rows to themselves. What a ripoff."
Pros: "the upside was that legroom was ok--i'm 6'2". plane did leave on time."
Cons: "1) not that alaska does any worse than others, but boarding is increasingly unpleasant. 5 grades of 'rewards' groups boards, then children, then military, then the elderly, etc. by the time people who paid full fair for their tickets board there's no overhead space left. by charging for any checked bags, the airlines are creating a very stressful and disorganized boarding experience; 2) the ambiance is just dull: cheesy music, dull, grey colors, poor lighting, etc. it just feels as if you're in a space designed by someone with no taste--and this is from the company that bought and killed virgin!? 3) the food is the same cheese plate and tapas plate i get on other airlines. 4) no special greeting upon boarding. it wouldn't take much to make the entire experience pleasant, but alaska and others don't feel the need to make the effort."
Pros: "The flight attendants made our flight very nice. They went out of their way to take care of us."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines has chargers at each seat! So convenient. They also have free messaging, and movies! They also de-board their luggage super quickly - I walked off the plane, grabbed my luggage, and was on my way as quickly as if I only carried-on!"
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing the crew could do; weather conditions"
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "There were several issues with my electronic boarding pass. Both on my way in for this flight and previously on another Alaska Airlines flight."
Pros: "Plane was late. Ground crew did a good job keeping passengers notified"
Cons: "Plane was late, but can't help the weather"
Cons: "A long line for the aft toilets, and crew told us we couldn't use the empty toilet at the front because first class passengers pay more. This was TWO attendants making people wait when at least one other toilet was open up front on a five hour flight. Is this even legal? Very disappointed in lack of consideration for health and comfort. Thanks for listening."
Pros: "Crew were super nice, free beer and excellent landing! Great way to start my trip! Well done Alaska!"
Pros: "Fast and easy boarding even with a really busy holiday weekend. Clear communication with crew and staff who make sure to make things as easy as possible really made a potentially chaotic boarding really great! The type of plane is noisy, but I was still able to hear the flight attendants and they were patient with the passengers."
Cons: "I can't eat dairy so having a cheesy cracker snack is a bummer, but I my seat mates on both flights were really excited about them (I said they could take my crackers and they said their kids would be really happy) so I figure it's fine!"
Pros: "Still waiting for our return flight to land"
Pros: "Crew very helpful since my mom required wheelchair and assistance. Very responsive crew members"
Pros: "Love the charging station on every seatback, friendly crew and healthy snacks."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the captain's message over the speaker....he either had an accent or the reception was terrible."

Cons: "The seats were suprisingly small."
Pros: "they were very friendly and funny :)"
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: "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: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Cons: "100% as always.. delta has never disappointed! Keep up the good work guys"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, professional."
Pros: "Crew from GNV to ATL was very pleasant."
Cons: "On time departure to ensure that I was able to catch connecting flight instead of missing it and being placed stand by on the next available flight."
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "Crew attentive and helpful"
Pros: "Pilot explained the flight path and landmarks along the way. Crew was friendly to us and welcomed our baby onboard before many other pax boarded."
Cons: "Seats were narrow and I’m not a big guy. 6’0”. 185."
Cons: "It was late"

Pros: "Flight staff friendly and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Always wishing for roomier seats."
Cons: "They did great. The weather was poor, so it felt more like a roller coaster ride home. Made it safe and sound. Would’ve been nice to get an update is speaker about change in weather and the rough ride in store when the whole ride was so turbulent."
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "Lots of snacks and drink service"
Cons: "No electricity or tv or movies or WiFi"
Cons: "Going to Delta today to see if they can help me...we'll see!"
Pros: "The crew on the airplane was great. We had 2.5 hours turbulences but the crew started to give out drinks as soon they got the ok from the pilot"
Cons: "We went in LGA to the Baggage drop off and the employee there was super rude. On the flight to New York with Delta we had to check our carry ons at the gate because it wasn't enough room for bags in the airplane.so we asked when we checked our one suitcase if we can/should check our carry ons to avoid having to do it at the gate. The delta employee told me sure no problem. He checks in my one suitcase I purchased gives me the tracking paper and says ok have a good flight. I asked him so what is with our carry ons and he told us that that would cost 25$ and we can't check those in at the drop off?!?We ended up taking the carry ons with to the gate and then off course there wasn't enough room on the airplane that we had to check it in. And surprise it was free?? We had never issues with Lufthansa, icelandair etc. with checking our bags at drop off to not needing to carry it around and than still end up to check it at the airplane. Every airline has been more than happy that we volunteer to check our bags that they don't have the trouble at the gate."
Cons: "Need vegetarian meal in first class"
Cons: "They lost my luggage & made me miss my connecting flight"
Pros: "Everything on time, friendly and helpful attendants"
Cons: "Why does boarding have to happen with several other flights, gets confusing. Have other flights board at a different time or from another gate far away so customers don't get confused"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"
Pros: "Short and nice flight"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "boarding process was good food was okay not great not bad entertainment was good flight attendants and service excellent"
Cons: "food could have been better but arriving to destination safely is most important"
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
Pros: "Seat and headrests especially were nice"
Cons: "Very bumpy rides in both cases"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats too close together."
Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
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"
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: "Nothing in particular was that great. Just very low average"
Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Pros: "Nice and Easy. Great service before during and after the flight."
Cons: "Not being able to choose a seat with basic economy during online check-in. With all the issues about seating nowadays you definitely want to know you have a seat going on."
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: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Pros: "The flight actually took off."
Cons: "No forewarning of weather impacting flights 3 days later, allowing passengers to potentially change flights. Two hour delay became a four delay which became a five hour delay. Delta reps entirely unhelpful when I asked if anything could be done, "Atlanta is a disaster right now." I get that these things happen from time to time, but Delta is handling this very poorly. I'm actually waiting for my flight out of Atlanta and it's also been delayed, luckily only for 30 minute this time."
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: "Ability to change planes with a 30 minute layover."
