It was a great experience. The flight crew were friendly and efficient!
I needed to preboard and was nicely accommodated. We were disappointed that this long flight that was expensive did not include any food beyond pretzels and cookies. I know we could have purchased food, but we were already spending a lot of money for the flight. I was also disappointed that I would have to purchase wifi access.
It was a smaller plane so a little crowded. Very short flight so no food/beverage service (not a problem). Took longer than expected to get out of O’Hare airport but the flight itself was fine.
Overall I would fly Alaska Airlines anywhere and anytime.
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Relaxed, comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seat was super comfortable and food was great."
Pros: "The flight got me home to pdx safely."

Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived half an hour before schedured"
Cons: "The plane is not clean, seat very small I am not a fat person"
Pros: "Leg room seems a bit more spacious than other flights. Very comfortable. Nice experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The seats are very comfortable. While waiting for the flight at the airport, an employee was offering everyone free snacks and drinks. I will use this airline exclusively in the future."
Cons: "There is nothing bad to say."
Pros: "The attendants were really nice... flight was fast and smooth."
Pros: "Despite the heavy snowfall at the end of our flight and elsewhere in the country, Alaska Airlines did a great job of keeping us up to date on the delays. They were eve able to make up much of the 45 minute time loss in flight to get us to our destination. The flight crew was in high spirits throughout the flight as well."
Cons: "There was an obnoxious rattling in one of the overhead bins - maybe because the props were spinning faster to get us to our destination 30 minutes quicker. But the flight attendant did everything she could to try to silence it. Eventually, she won the battle."
Pros: "I don't fly Alaska much but I might make more of an effort to do so after this past experience."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the leg room being 6’4” and all! All my flights were con time, and without delay. I definitely we will recommend Alaska Airlines to family and friends."
Cons: "Not showing free movies on the flights."
Pros: "First class upgrade"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive to elderly mom and her needs."
Cons: "Missed connection due to slow ground crew (no ramp to de-plane)"
Pros: "They were helpful and polite while boarding and flying. They even give you a complimentary glass of wine or beer on board. All in all my experience was extremely pleasant. They have been much better than my experience last week with united. I would very much recommend Alaska if you have the option."
Pros: "Pleasant flight. Seemed to have more leg room. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "New approach to entertaiment, which requires you to have your own devices to view"
Pros: "om time"
Cons: "We were rerouted through Helena, MT and had to rent a car and drive 2 hours to our destination. Due to the limited services into Montana through Alaska Airlines, we would highly consider another airline to accommodate future trips."
Pros: "How accommodating the whole flight crew was to every individual person."
Pros: "The ability to get to Montana in 3 1/2 hours. The only reason I fly squashed in a tin can."
Cons: "Being squashed in a tin can and not being able to recline. I never feel my comfort is any kind of a goal by an airline. Only one goal for the airline. Profit. Can't even say safety is a high priority because how the heck can you get out of a plane when there's no space to walk. Passengers need more space not less. But can't do that it'd lower your profit."
Cons: "There was freezing air blowing on my feet!"
Pros: "Excellent, quick service. Luggage picked up and brought down efficiently from the plane."
Cons: "Passengers weren't informed prior that the walk to the plane was very long."
Pros: "Quick flight- friendly staff"
Cons: "Landing was a bit abrupt but not scary."
Cons: "No beverage or snack service whatsoever. And when asked about water to the flight attendant, she looked pissed off like she couldn't be bothered. She didn't do anything but eat her own snacks at the back of the plane the whole time! Also this plane has only a chemical toilet. Very poor experience. Plane is also super small."
Pros: "Over an hour late leaving San Francisco, over an hour late leaving Seattle! One delay after another. Spent more time in airports than on planes"
Pros: "Friendly, caring crew."
Cons: "Wi-Fi would be nice."
Cons: "Crew at gate never kept us informed . Did not board us at time they had posted and never announced that. I ended up just standing in a line that formed that how I knew to board. Seats were way to small and the attendant hit my arm with beverage cart. She never announced she was coming through and didn't apologize just speed by. Pilot never came oup on speaker to talk with us either"
Pros: "Alaska provided a food voucher and a future flight credit."
Cons: "Food was OK, but we were promised Chocolate and there was none"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "The meal that was served was excellent. The in-flight wi-fi worked great."
Cons: "The plane was freezing- the crew was alerted to this by more than one passenger and the heat came on for about 10 minutes then it was back to cold air blasting through the plane. It was nearly a four hour flight and it was just not comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional staff. Free access to movies was really nice as well."
Pros: "They offer complimentary beer & I think that's cool. I also like the moldable headrest."
Cons: "Seats are smaller than usual economy."
Pros: "They are always on time even earlier, boarding fast and the flight attendants are very kind"
Pros: "This is the 8th flight I've had with Alaska and I only have one complaint to be honest."
Cons: "Both of my flights stated we would board by a certain time but instead we boarded ten minutes before our departure time. This in turn made us late."
Pros: "Such an easy flight! The flight crew is always amazing"
Pros: "I love Alaska Airlines, normally. The staff on board was wonderful. I love that you can print everything at home, check in is a breeze."
Cons: "I was very angry that my seat was changed without asking me. I always thought book my seats when I buy my ticket and I always pick the same seats. I like to be near the wing. I try to get the window seat in Row 20. They, without asking, moved me to the second to the last row, by the bathrooms. Needless to say it ruined the flight for me."
Pros: "An employee named Angel at Boise airport was exceptional. He was helpful and light hearted and had a good sense of humor."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence :("
Pros: "Kid got wings on first flight! He was thrilled. Free microbrewery beer didn't hurt my feelings ;)"
Cons: "Flight back from Seattle was not pleasant. Flight attendants were just plain crabby, didn't make eye contact or verbally respond to questions. Flight staff can make or break an experience, and these ladies broke it..."
Pros: "Boarding aircraft from back to forward. Speeds the boarding process."
Delayed on tarmac for over an hour
The staff were great, but they lost my luggage and my flight got delayed 6 hours.
We made great time and arrived early
Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Pros: "Everything was awesome"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "WiFi entertainment not working"
Pros: "Crew was good. There was a lot of movies available. A LOT!"
Cons: "The boarding process was the WORST!"

Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "K&yak was awful. Tossed me to a low end third party provider once booked. Never go through them again."
Pros: "Everything worked out well and plane arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Seemed like it took longer than average to get bags from baggage claim."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"

Pros: "The staff on board were excellent, very professional and efficient. Despite the fact we left an hour late, we arrived nearly on time, so kudos to the pilots!"

Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "I had to run for all its worth."
Pros: "When I went from London to Chicago, I felt one male crew member wasn’t very kind. He wasn’t tall but healthy and serving the other side away from the main door. I felt him greeting others with a smile but with no smile to me. I thought in my heart seems like he is discriminating, I could be wrong, but I always felt he wasn’t so humble while serving to me or may be other Indians too. But he was smiling extra to rest of the passengers,"
Cons: "I didn’t like his attitude. I would request you to request the crew members to be kind to everyone. Since Iam vegtarian ..I couldn’t eat the egg that was served an hour before landing in Chicago. He could have given me the chocolate inside. He just said in haste this has egg. I told him oh I don’t eat egg, thank you. still he could have been considerate and offered me the chocolate “Toubolron” but he just went away. Later on I saw everyone eating the chocolate."

Pros: "Everyone was very professional and pleasant."
Cons: "All great today."
Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."

Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic. They took great care of us the entire trip."
Cons: "Trying to figure out where to go in each airport for customs, integrations, and gate changes."
Cons: "I had a connecting flight in DFW to BOS. My plane left late from OKC, giving very little time to get to my connecting flight in DFW. The flight arrived in BOS and I got to the gate at 6:15pm; with a flight departure of 6:25pm. I felt the gate agent handled the situation very poorly. Instead of letting me, and another passenger with the same situation as mine, let us know why the gate was closed 10 minutes prior to departure was rude and brusque and said sorry, nothing could be done. A simple explanation of why we couldn't board would have gone a long way. She finally barked out for us to go to Customer Service to re-route us. Customer Service was very slow and the agents had attitudes. I did get on an AA flight the next morning, including comp vouchers for dinner and breakfast, but I missed an entire day of the conference I was attending in Boston."
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."

Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Cons: "Not able to check luggage all the way through"
Pros: "Boarded on time, and was a quick flight."
Cons: "There were cabin pressure issues mid-flight that really hurt my head."
Cons: "We didn't fly Finnair. All of my emails said Finnair and then when arrived at the Finnair counter they didn't have my family registered. After some panicking, we were told to try American Airlines. That is who we flew with, not Finnair"
Pros: "Quick and fast. Slept through the landing and woke up to everyone gone and was in a rush to get out, but forgot my phone and passport, and I asked about it they went back there and looked for it for me and got it back. Over all good experience."
Cons: "Wish they offered water, but since it was short it made sense."

Pros: "Once seated flight was pleasant & arrived to our destination 20 min early."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been more attentive to boarding customers. They were serving drinks to first class, talking in the aisles, did not move when you were trying to get in your seat. Too much commotion going on while boarding and it became frustrating."
Pros: "The onboard crew was amazing. No problems there. The flight was decent."
Cons: "Both ways I had delayed trips. On my way back my first flight was running late. So arriving at my connecting airport I literally had to RUN clear across be airport and the attendant tells me I was a "no show". So I would have to wait and go on a different flight. The plane was still there. It was 25 minutes before take off time. And she rerouted me onto a different aircraft in which I had to RUN to the other side of the airport again. Only to find out this flight was delayed for 45 minutes. In which adding on to me already delayed flight. I understand some things are out of everyone's control. But the lady made me feel like I was just looking around in shops instead of being where I needed. Never again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no food"
Pros: "The crew was lovely, that's the only compliment I can muster."
Cons: "The plane was too small for an international flight, no in-seat entertainment, it was so small and horrible. We were like packed sardines for 6 hours. Seat in front of my was broken and in a perpetual state of big recline, the bathroom light was broken in one bathroom and door on the other. The plane looked old and disgusting. Cracks in window, grafatti on seats. Will try desperately not to fly American Airlines in the future."

I had to pay $600 for her to fly delta because she had to get back to school for her finals the next day. And United was absolutely NO help!"
Pros: "Free drinks in first class"
Cons: "Really small restroom. Plane on second leg was too small to even have a first class"
Pros: "On time ,friendly employees"
Cons: "My flight from OKC to Denver was cancelled the night before and United neglected to inform me. I learned about my cancelled flight at the OKC airport. United has all my contact information and Im a frequent flyer with United, so they had no reason for not contacting me. Another example of poor customer service."
Pros: "There was nothing to like...received several emails about airtraffic control problems and rescheduled flights."
Cons: "No accommodation! Nothing! It was a connecting flight and no consideration was given to that effect...just rescheduled for Friday. Some people received taxi and hotel vouchers while I received a, " all the flights are full there's nothing we can do.""

Pros: "United needs to get there entertainment figured out because it does not work right. Out of 5 flights in the last week only got to watch TV once. Same way when I flew in January. We pay enough money to fly at least the extras could be worth it. Everything else was fine"
Cons: "The planes seem to need a little bit of refurbishing"
Cons: "Extremely frustrated at having to wait a full hour for baggage to be delivered to baggage claim. Otherwise, fine--the typical comfortless, joyless flight that all airlines provide."
Pros: "Wonderful and kind crew. We flew out at 6 am so I slept the whole time and it was nice and quiet."
Cons: "The delay of 1 and 1/2 hours caused us to miss the next flight. We called United to report the delay and they promise us the next flight was going to be held. They didn't. Don't make promises you can't keep."
Cons: "FLIGHT FIVE HOURS LATE"
Pros: "The staff was pleasant. You can sign up for text notifications in reference to flight information."
Cons: "The gate changed and there was confusion as to the correct gate. Luckily I had signed up for United text notifications which communicated the change. Restroom restrictions due to non functioning test rooms."

Pros: "Arrived on time, no luxury but great price."
Cons: "Smaller planes, but was expected for the value."
Cons: "I nearly missed getting a cup of ice when the refreshment cart came up the isle. Then the attendant acted as if he couldn't understand my request for a "cup of ice, please" and he tried to hand me a small package of snacks. I had to repeat myself 2 more times and finally got my cup of ice. I said "thanks!" His look told me I wasn't "welcome"."
Pros: "Michael Reeves was helpful"

Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455! United Airlines is a great airline. There was a wonderful agent who helped me at the kiosk for check-in. Very friendly. The flight attendants were great too."
