Take off was on time and landing was early!! Assistance desk at San Diego was better than excellent!!!!
Negotiate better gate locations- Gate 20 in San Diego felt like a 3 mile walk
Plane was delayed because the fuel truck ran out of fuel. ?!?!
Everyone! Best airline l have ever been on.
Very smooth and fast travel experience. Would definitely fly with Alaska Airlines again.
Flight attendant asked me to take off my KN95 and put on cloth or surgical mask
It was not made clear to me that if I wasn't electronically checked in 45 minutes prior to departure, I would not be allowed to check in and would effectively miss my flight. I arrived at a fairly empty Portland Airport and tried to check in 44 minutes before my flight, but was denied the ability to check in, even though I did not have any checked in luggage. I think I actually logged on to the kiosk with 46-47 minutes to go before my flight so I was kind of annoyed. It would have been >easy< to make my flight if either 1. that arbitrary rule had not been made, or 2. if that rule had been clearly communicated in the email I receiver inviting my to check in.
Cons: "Nothing could have been better"
Pros: "I liked getting the $75 credit due to the extreme lateness of the flight."
Cons: "The passengers seemed a bit wound up after a 3 hour delay. When it was time for the safety review, several passengers were not listening to the attendants, and one attendant shouted "Hey, you need to listen. This is important. This is not a party bus." I understand her frustration, but her behavior was really unprofessional. I've been in customer service for years, and you never let your personal frustration show. She should have brought the behavior to the attention of the flight deck for the pilot to make an announcement, etc. Southwest attendants are always cool, calm and collected. I'll bear that in mind the next time I book."
Pros: "Seating comfort was excellent, the interiors were spotless."
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over two hours before taking offf, with periodic vague updates from the pilot that changed scenarios from possibly having to disembark and change planes to everything being ok..."
Pros: "All flight crews we're great."
Pros: "The crew and seat were comfortable.I like Alaska airline.It was first time I used this airline."
Cons: "Smallest, tightest, poorly designed seating ever! Extremely uncomfortable seating. Alaska airlines charges extra for virtually everything. Flight was delayed multiple times (non weather). The ticket wasn't cheap but was lower-priced then competitors at that particular moment on short notice."
Cons: "Both legs were delayed for unknown reasons. Supposed to arrive in Reno at 2:39 but with delays that was actually 4:00. Lost 2 hours of work time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and well trained"
Cons: "Delayed, due to smoke conditions"
Cons: "55 min flight to LA took 4 hours. How , I will never know"
Pros: "No one in the seat next to me and we got there 20 mins early"
Cons: "Deboarding is always a hassle, nothing really bad"
Pros: "When we landed"
Cons: "Delays. Pricing , pay for every amenity"
Cons: "i wish Alaska would fly straight to Denver from Montana. I fly from Montana to Denver a lot and it ends up being a whole day of travel instead of a couple hour flight."
Pros: "Got in a little late but not too bad. Having a direct flight was great."
Pros: "Fantastic flight - we got in early even!"
Pros: "Was on a spirit air flight that was cancelled. Should have booked with Alaska all along but now I've learned my lesson. ;)"
Pros: "for little planes, the landings were nice and easy"
Cons: "everything else. it's my fault for flying that short route. next time i will drive."
Pros: "The check in process, the flight was smooth, captain informed us of weather, time arriving because of slow takeoff, etc. staff were very friendly!"
Pros: "She was cute, really acted like she liked her job! Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "I wanted a candy bar instead of the mai tai"
Pros: "My beef dinner wasn't horrible. It was mediocre."
Cons: "Where do I start... even though I booked my flights in late July for this late August trip, and even spoke to a representative over the phone about my dog being my carry on item, they never mentioned to me that my first row seats in First Class didn't allow dogs. I had chosen my seats so my partner and I could obviously sit together, but on the day of my flight(s) is when they decided to change my preferred seat which I paid to reserve and moved me into another row in First Class but without sitting by my partner. We had to get our seats fixed before each flight which should have either been alerted to me in the first place or automatically found us seats together. Also, the First Class check in before TSA was useless, as we had to go through the Assistance line anyway and it added considerable time to my trip. Also, once we were at the gate, First Class didn't even board first, but had to wait after three different groups of people were allowed to board first (families with children, injured people, and veterans). While boarding them with some priority is not the issue it's that first class should go before these, then those special groups, THEN general boarding. What was the allure and advantage of First Class? Once I boarded my flight to Seattle and had finally been approached (in flight) by my stewardess about my meal and drink options, she easily asked others before me and listed their options but with me stared blankly and gave me a judgmental look when I ordered champagne and dinner, something almost every other person before me had said to her. After that, getting service was a joke. I had to press the call button to even get her to come by when I needed hot water for my asthma cough attack, and she never even returned to me so I could continue getting more hot water (that I needed). I felt she was doing this out of racism, as I was one of the only brown people in First Class and as I observed, the only one she singled out for this behavior. Also, the in flight tablet to watch movies had grainy, low resolution and all my films were edited for children (curse words were badly edited out) and I think this is unnecessary for anyone unless they are seated with children. I couldn't imagine paying for that tablet and watching such low quality videos on it at a further extension of that cost. Finally, I was accosted by this stewardess again as we were landing for my dog's carrier bag not being shoved even further under the seat in front of me (bear in mind, I never moved my dog or her bag at any time after I had initially placed her under her seat) and honestly I found that to be pretty insulting and humiliating when all I was doing was sitting there. First Class came with literally no perks other than alcohol and subpar food, which I would not pay that extravagant price for ever again. In fact, it left me with no intention at all to continue ever using services with Alaska airlines, even though I have to travel to Alaska often."
Pros: "The flight was on time the crew was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. And the gate was not clearly marked. Had to take a bus to the plane and wait in it for like 15?'inutes. With no AC and it was HOT"
Cons: "had difficulty finding how to input known-traveller number; missed out on the TSA PreCheck line... but the airport wasn't very busy so..."
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Not having free meals. Just a tiny cookie."
Pros: "Really liked the new app to watch movies and more on your own personal device. Made the time fly by."
Cons: "Too bad it was not available on the smaller aircraft."
Pros: "Mood lighting"
Cons: "No free snacks and $25 per bag surcharge"
Pros: "Good customer service and flight"
Cons: "Turbulence was bad :("
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The cabin attendants were excellent!"
Cons: "Crowded seating, dirty seats and main cabin. Worse than a Greyhound bus, but thank GOD a lot faster!"
Pros: "Beer and friendly crew Printing bagtags at home and easily checking in."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to crew not making it on time and not enough seats in waiting area for gate 64a"
Cons: "Nothing - Cancelled flight"
Pros: "Alaska has great customer service, friendly people, and haven't screwed up my flights yet."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and personable. Food was excellent."
Pros: "The ONLY thing I liked was my seats. Closer to the main door. The faster I get off this plane the faster my vacation starts. Maybe your employees need a vacation too!"
Cons: "The stewardess were quit rude made the whole experience horrible thanks Alaskaairline"
Pros: "The crew served beverages as they would on any other flight, and they left the lights off which was nice and relaxing, considering it was a night-time flight."
Cons: "Although it was a short flight in general, I wish the chairs had the ability to recline even just a little. Also, the seatbelt light was on for the entire 2 1/2 hours(I didn't feel any turbulence) and for those like me whose bladders are the size of a pea, that didn't make me the most comfortable. Finally, although we left early, we arrived 20 minutes late, and that was a little irksome, although I know that's out of the pilot's control."
Quick boarding, early departure and arrival. Nice flight.
Staff was very helpful. They looked for compartment space when I couldn't find any. This allowed me to sit while they put away my bag
Our bags took over 45 minutes to unload,
The entertainment display was faulty.
The flight was delayed for five hours due to airplane issues.
So much fun to be delayed 3.5 hours so you land at 12:12 a.m. CT and then discover there are planes stacked on the tarmac but no open gates. We’ve been sitting in a hot plane for 1:20 and have no estimate when we’ll get a gate. This was poor gate management by American Airlines and DFW. Every AA flight I am on of late has been problematic at best.
It was a smooth, uneventful ride. The staff was very friendly. The overhead compartments were a little small for my hiking style backpack, but I made it work.
Cons: "Old planes, disinterested crew, full flight"
Cons: "Beverages fir 1st class"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Cons: "The a/c wasn't working. Flight attendants acted annoyed by the people flying, no connectivity to gogo inflight."
Cons: "Coach seats are cramped and little under seat space in window seats. Plus CMH de-icing was a mess (although not AA’s fault)."
Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."
Pros: "Take offs equaled lands"
Cons: "Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage"
Pros: "The gate agent in Columbus was in a wonderful mood."
Pros: "Biscuits are awesome"
Cons: "WiFi is a little confusing. App didn’t work."
Cons: "Flight delay at every single step of the way Crew was great though"
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Pros: "Excellent service gate to gate."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"
Pros: "Nice legroom! Easy boarding, everything good and on time. Short flight so didn’t use entertainment."
Cons: "Delayed by 90 minutes."
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Cons: "The delay in Columbus caused me to miss my connection and have to fly into LAX instead of LGB."
Cons: "Could have been given more snacks for 3 hr flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall people unless you pay extra."
Pros: "Was a little slow in starting leaving too little time to drink my coffee and I was one of the first to be served."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome! Very accommodating"
Cons: "All was good, flight attendants were exceptional"
Pros: "Everything was excellent about the flight. I had no issues"
Pros: "The crew, as always"
Cons: "Being sectioned off from 1st class"
Pros: "Boarded on time. You should let only executive Platinum board after 1st class. The value is diluted when ALL advantage members board at the same time."
Cons: "Boarding. See above."
Pros: "As usual the plane was clean and everybody involved with American was very friendly."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Left on time. Arrived a little early. Flight attendants were friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing really. Short flight. Wasn't expecting food or entertainment."
Pros: "The staff was helpful"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Despite a technical problem they got us to Newark on time."
Cons: "If they overbooked the flight, offer flight vouchers AHEAD of us being at the airport."
Pros: "Generally efficient, clean"
Cons: "Crew seemed hurried - when asking if people wanted coffee walked by so quickly I did not have a chance to reply"
Pros: "The Lufthansa crew was very friendly on all legs and provided excellent service. The good was actually good."
Cons: "The seat could have been more comfortable for a long trip but still better than your typical American airlines."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Late arrival of aircraft. Mechanical problems with navigation able to get through that but took off one hour late. The usual."
Pros: "Agent at the gate"
Cons: "My seats changed so my son and I were not sitting together. The agent at the gate was wonderful and got us seated together."
Cons: "Sat in the very back row. Seemingly had less space than any other row and got hit by every person walking to the bathroom. I know united can’t control how often ppl go to the bathroom but this was a rough flight with constantly having ppl out of their seats. Crew was great!"
Pros: "Less than an hour in the air- commuter shuttle"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Air traffic control delay."
Pros: "Seats are too narrow. Passenger next to me was so big he was sitting on my seat."
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "From Washington to Albania everything was great."
Cons: "The boarding at the first flight from Columbus to Washington was the worst flight I ever had, peoples who worked there were really rude and disrespectful not to only me but to a few passengers especially a lady who worked at the ticket both."
Cons: "Our originally scheduled flight out of CMH was cancelled within minutes of getting through security. We were told to wait for another flight-which was scheduled to depart 3 hours EARLIER, but had yet to depart. 3 hours later THAT flight cancelled, and we were rebooked for a flight the following day. So we were out our first night's accommodations as well as transportation to/from the airport that day. The next day we boarded our scheduled flight, sat on the tarmac for awhile, then went back to the gate and de-planed for some unknown reason. We were then re-booked on a different airline. THAT flight was then delayed, which would have caused us to miss our connection to EDI. The ticket agent worked for an hour to find us a flight to EDI that wasn't going through Newark (delays from hell) or Chicago (weather from hell). She finally put us on a flight with an all-too-brief layover in Amsterdam after a connection in Detriot. At this point we have boarding passes coming out our arses, It's 5pm and I haven't eaten since 9am, and we're STILL not out of our departure city. Our projected arrival time was going to cost us ANOTHER night's accommodation, as well as cause us to miss previously paid for engagements. 2 more delays allowed us to finally land in our destination about 40 hours after our original itinerary, with no apology or effort to amend the situation in any way."
Cons: "They were cancell my fly let me sleep in airport never fly to united"
Pros: "The flight was delayed serial times."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times."
Pros: "So I made and didn't get assaulted. So I guess it went well."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Then they told us they might turn us around and take us back. It was anxiety provoking."
Cons: "The small commuter planes used for the trip are not smooth rides at all. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "lots of turbulence but that happens"
Cons: "Lots of delays, not so friendly flight attendants..."
Pros: "The crew and ground staff kept us fairly well updated"
Cons: "An excessive delay that included having a part flown to Monterey from Los Angeles"
Cons: "NOT ON TIME EVER THIS FLIGHT IS ALWAYS DELAYED HATE TAKING IT ONLY DO AS A LAST RESORT"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled, bad weather was the day before our flight, not the day of our flight (the day of our flight which was sun). We now got rebooked for wed. That's 3 days we didn't plan to be in Columbus oh. That seems excessive."
Cons: "Delays no good..."
Cons: "They turned the flight around, getting us home hours later than what was supposed to be"
Pros: "We ended up with the exit row seats - awesome, especially for my 6'6" husband."
Cons: "We each had one bag- a backpack for him and an incredibly small roll bag for me. We were told we absolutely had to check the roll bag as space was limited. There were 3 off duty flight attendants sitting next to me and each had 2 large bags. Multiple other people had multiple oversized bags they were allowed to carry on. This infuriates me. I brought one bag, and a smaller than regulation one at that and I had to check it because other people were allowed to bring multiple bags. If you know a flight will be a tight squeeZe, limit people to one bag each."
Pros: "Very nice flight staff. Will be joining again"
Pros: "Short. Easy."
Cons: "Flight a little late. Waited outside at SFO before anyone could board plane 15minutes it was cold."
Pros: "Crew and they kept you well feed"
Cons: "I just could not get comfortable"
Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."
Cons: "Delayed and delayed and at last cancled the flt. It's Uniteds tradition to cancled the late evening flt. Stupid airlines."
Pros: "attendant was very helpful and friendly"
Cons: "flight was late and missed my connection, causing me to wait several houes to nake the connection to SLC"
Pros: "Good price and good flight."
Cons: "Overlay at the airports were tiring. While going into USA, in chicago I had to stay overnight for the next flight. While coming back, in Japan, I had to stay overnight for the next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding procedures by groups. I also was forced to check my carry-on, even though after boarding there was plenty of room in overhead storage. Because I was in group 5, they assumed it would be full. They didn't check or allow me to check."
Cons: "Additional fees for extra space were 1/3 the cost of my flight"
Pros: "Nothing everything was horrible absolute terrible customer service"
Cons: "Didn't offer vouchers or accomodations Classified delay as weather when we were told in Ohio it was a mechicanical I was extremely distraught began crying horribly became extremely dehydrated & went into urgent care once returning to PHX"
Pros: "Everything was fantastic"
Pros: "I enjoyed the great service, entertainment and the quickness of the flight."
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was schedule to depart at 9:17am and didn't depart until 4pm. Delay after delay. I missed a business meeting with the city and now have to spend more money on a hotel room and rental car as I have to extend my stay as the city is not open for a meeting until Monday. This is absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Fast puddle jumper from CMH to IAD."
Cons: "United has replaced all gate agents with contractors. It is abundantly clear. No stakes in customer service, these folks are just slightly above automated robots following scripts verbatim with poor skills speaking English."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "The temperature control was ridiculous!!! One minute it was 40 degrees and the next it was 90. People were putting on coats and hats, taking them off and putting them back on the entire flight. It was horrible and there was NOTHING relaxing about this flight bc of it. The crew announced the inflight entertainment and gave directions on how to use it. Thirty minutes later, they informed us it wasn't working. So nothing to distract us from the horrible temps!!! Pull this aircraft out of service and fix the temperature!!!"
Pros: "Got home early no delays good seats"
Cons: "All my tickets states see attendant for seat so I was worried I didn't have a seat"
Pros: "Window seat. On time. Courtesy of staff."
Cons: "Cramped. Tight fit for such along flight. Squoze in."
Cons: "We are two active duty members flying to take our son to our parents for us to get ready to go on deployment. When we arrived there the line was almost an hour and a half just to check bags we almost missed our flight. When we got to the counter ans told him we were both military flying on orders and asked to be tsa checked he had no clue what we were talking about so this kind woman helped him do his job, needless to say he was a manager. Once we got out tickets the seat assignment said see agent so we did. He hands us our tickets and we are a plane length apart. Let me mind you we both just left our child for a 8 month deployment overseas. We asked the guy if it was possible to get seats together wouldnt even acknowledge we were speaking to him. So we tried again he held his hand in my face and told me he serviced me and to please step back. Ive been bawling 2 hours straight from having to leave our son. So we stepped back. Then in the line this couple comes up and they were looking for seats together, i kid you not he gave them seats together! I will NEVER EVER fly united every again. Thank goodness for this kind gentle to switch me seats on the plane because i was crying i had to leave my fiance after i just had to say goodbye to our son for 8 months!! I was so shocked!!! I will tell every single person i know to never use united! You guys should be ashamed of our company! I will inform every active duty member i come across!"
