Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fun crew!"

Cons: "Most service good"
Pros: "Crew was excellent!"
Pros: "Love Alaska Airlines"

Pros: "The timeliness, crew were very nice and courteous. The overall feel was very positive. The lady at the check in counter was amazing.she was friendly,welcoming and set a very good tone for the flight"
Cons: "There was really nothing that I did not like on the flight that I can think about right now"
Cons: "Haven’t had it yet"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Went to ticket counter at 5:33 and talked with Tyler L, whose boss Jerry had instructed him to not let passengers check in after 5:30. The flight was at 6:10. Tyler smugly smiled while refusing to print a boarding pass, then was unable/uninterested in helping me rebook. I had gone through security and couldn't find boarding pass email. I went through checkin the night before but apparently it didn't finish. Talked with security about getting back to front of the line. I had 30 minutes to walk 600 ft and absolutely could have made that flight. Called 800 number to book a new flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding and take off, arrived early and didn’t have to wait for bags."
Pros: "Great staff. Quick boarding. Appreciate them greatly."
Cons: "Nothing it was a wonderful experience. Maybe if the weather in DC had have been better"
Pros: "love direct flight from Omaha to Seattle. timely in getting us off. Crew very responsive. coming through several times to offer us water which is great for a 3 hour flight. thanks."
Cons: "we both bought food. Mine was great. his was mediocre. through no fault of Alaska airlines. we were in row with 3 seats. the other gentleman had a very high weight. He struggled to get his seatbelt to close. Not sure what you can do to fix that. Just a growing USA problem. Where he needed a seat and a half."
Pros: "Seeing me seated next to a young person big enough to need more than one seat (couldn't lower the arm rest), a flight attendant found another seat for me without me asking."
Cons: "If a person needs two seats, maybe they should buy two seats. The streaming movie only came it fitful bits, far inferior to previous provided screens. It also took about twice as long to play as a result. And of course, checking a bag should not be an additional cost, nor should a meal on long flights."
Cons: "Rude people. Guy next tp me was offered food. I'm pregnsnt and wasn't offered food"
Pros: "Plane was full, but it didn’t feel too cramped. Flight Attendants all kind and efficient."
Cons: "No complaints except they need more vegetarian food options as it’s a 5.5 hour flight. No entertainment screen, you need your phone to watch anything, but there are USB plugs at each seat."
Pros: "Every Alaska Airlines employee went above and beyond to make sure our family had a great travel experience. Our seats were assigned together, we were not charged for checking smaller bags, and the beverage/snack service was fast and they checked back often. Seats on this plane were roomy and the flight was not over-crowded. Boarding and de-boarding were easy and relaxed. Arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "great job."
Pros: "Fantastic flight - we got in early even!"
Pros: "Clear regular flight notifications. Clean cabin. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Both flights in and out had snappish flight attendants who were short-tempered and actively unfriendly. Otherwise fine flights."
Pros: "The food options and prices were great."
Cons: "The entertainment wasn't working for most of the flight, so it really wasn't worth the $10 I paid for it."
Pros: "Crew was great. I was carrying a tuxedo and a suite and one of the crew offered to take them from me and hang them instead of folding them in the overhead. Everyone was very please t."
Cons: "1. Entertainment was a small tablet that you rent to see movies. I can’t believe it has reached that extent. 2. Food. We ordered a chicken sandwich and the veggies that go in the sandwich came separately in. ZIPLOCK bag. The shredded carrots were all over the place. Really bad idea."
Pros: "very helpful employees made check in a breeze, on time boarding, early arrival by 40 minutes, quick baggage delivery! Awesome experience, kudos to all employees!"
Cons: "The usual: poor seating and no food/beverage service gratis. Compared to the majors United, American, and Delta, Alaska service and helpfulness are outstanding."
Pros: "On time, baggage was so fast- no wait! Everyone was friendly and service amazing. I also have a broken tailbone and seat was still comfortable and wifi was great."
Pros: "Alaska delivers -- even though taking off took a lot longer, the pilot made good time during the flight"
Cons: "I brought economy plus seat but unfortunately my immediate neighbor was a mom with a two year old screaming boy. And he screamed and screamed."
Pros: "Bad wifi/internet connection. Toilet in first class cabin stopped up. Plane interior needed refurbishing."
Cons: "Bad wifi/internet connection. Toilet in first class cabin stopped up. Plane interior needed refurbishing."
Pros: "Landing 40 min ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Flight attendant really kind and helpful, brought me tea and honey for laryngitis."
Cons: "Pilot should welcome, check in at some point, and definitely comment on turbulence or any turning on or off of seatbelt sign other then for takeoff or landing. Was really weird to get no updates other than from flight attendance when at times we had bad turbulence but silence from cockpit. I'm afraid of flying so I listen for this every time I fly and this was first experience of so little from pilots."
Pros: "The entire on line checking in process including self bag tag was easy and bag drop was efficient."
Cons: "Initially I had problem with on line checking in. So I called help as was suggested. But the agent was not helpful or resourceful in solving my problem. So I said goodbye and tried it again from beginning and it worked."
Cons: "i didn't like the fact that we did the plane did not take off on time from LA making the arrival time very late to DC."
Pros: "Stewardess stylish accessories to uniforms."
Cons: "Pilot error of a few inches off when parking after landing. Could slow down and pronunciation more clearly"
Pros: "the plane was late so boarding was late. it took a while for us passengers to all get on board."
Cons: "good entertainment options."
Cons: "The flight that I booked is from Omaha to Guangzhou, but you guys gave me the ticket shows that there has one stop by Canada, and I don't have the ETA so that the stuffs wouldn't let me get in the flight and I can't make my trip on time! I don't think that is my bad because as a customer YOU( this APP) should be able to let me know I need to get the ETA to support me stop by Canada before I book the ticket from YOU GUYS, and I don't know that, so that I can't get in the flight which is make me feels really tough! And I know that it is not just happen to me but also it happen to other people, there has some people has the same problem as I do, so I don't think you guys should do that! DO NOT sales us the ticket that can't let us get in the flight! As a public APP. You guys should make the notes when you sale the ticket, say" there has a one stop by Canada, IF U don't have ETA, pls don't book it!" Let the people know so that we won't get any trouble OK?!?!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Didn't have to wait long if I asked for refreshments."
Cons: "Needed more instructions on making your cell phone work to get movies, especially that you had to do it before you took off."
Cons: "The lavatory smell. How about have some air freshener like Emirates airline."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant, helful and truly desirous of making sure all had a comfortable flight."
Cons: "Miss the real airline food. Don't like having to pay 6 dollars for a box of munchies. Especially when you are flying trough two meal times."
Pros: "I was impressed with the friendly stewardesses. They boarded us quickly. It was nice to being a bag for free too. This was my first Alaska Air trip. The seats were more reasonable with space for my knees. Thank you."
Cons: "Baggage fees."
Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english. For some crazy reason she singles me out and says "you understand that sir". My neighbor in seat 17b said "she told you off hahaha". I was embarrassed."
Pros: "Best flight attendants in a long time. Lots of fun!"
Cons: "seats seemed extremely narrow"
Cons: "I was sent to the wrong city making my flight time more tiring and longer from Washington D.C. to Seattle to Portland to Honolulu. I was told I would get a $25.00 waiver and did not. Mean while the representative never asked me for id. On the return home I explained to the representative what had happened she kindly apologized for the rep not asking for my id and also saying she would give me a waiver that did not happen so the rep waived my baggage fee on my departure back. Unfortunately I ended up loosing my wallet during my layover because I was overwhelmed with going to a city that was never a part of my itinerary. On the way back to Washington D.C there was massive turbulence but the staff at Alaska airline did not make an announcement or serve any kind of drink for the first four hours. Finally the last hour and twenty minutes people finally came around. Overall I am turned off with the customer service I received,"
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Flight was very smooth and pleasant."
Pros: "On time to the minute"
Cons: "--Useless underseat space for aisle seats --Rude, unhelpful attendant --Meal never offered --Alaska now prohibits refilling of water bottles or coffee mugs or reuse of plastic/paper cups, Very thirsty flight for a ZeroWaste passenger. Etc."
Cons: "Had to change my flight- $125 cancellation fee is almost as much as the flight itself. At least let people use their credit on Alaska like Southwest does! Makes me hesitant to ever book with them again."
Pros: "Great service , great crew members treat you with so much respect and help you the best they can. They need to train the staff from America Airlines."
Pros: "Comfortable and safe flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."

Pros: "Crew ok ... not engaging"
Cons: "Terrible flight experience from delta"

Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Pros: "No delays. Easy boarding."
Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."
Pros: "We were able to fly standby on our original 2:30p flight but had to return to DCA for checked baggages later that day"
Cons: "Connecting flight from JFK to DCA was moved from approx 2:30p to nearly 8p, making our layover 7+ hours, as opposed to 1-2 hours. No reason for this change was provided. Delta crew member in JFK was rude and unhelpful. The second agent (who ultimately booked our standby tickets for our original connecting flight) was more pleasant."
Pros: "The service, free entertainment."
Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"
Cons: "There was no rhyme nor reason for who boarded first"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"
Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"
Pros: "The free small meals are a nice touch. Everything was great. The flight was on time and lived up to my expectations for the best US airline."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants didn’t seem super happy. Not much to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."
Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"
Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."
Cons: "Delta is terrible!!! $100 extra for everything!!! Terrible!!"
Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."
Cons: "The seat I was assigned did NOT recline !!! I have neck and back problems and I was in so much pain. You need to clearly indicate when a seat does not recline ( as in exit row seats, which are clearly indicated)."
Pros: "The movie availability was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Although my TSA Pre check number was on my flight coming into Atlanta, it wss not on my fight leaving Atlanta. That caused me to arrive at my gate 5 mins before boarding time and prevented me from having time to eat breakfast before my flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding, not a full flight, had plenty of room to stretch out, friendly flight crew, extra snacks!"
Cons: "Not much to say I didn't like, few problems with in-flight WiFi but otherwise good."
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "Hartsfield rental car train broke so it made me miss my original flight to DCA. Delta ticket agents rebooked me w/no problem and could not have been nicer or more professional. Thank you Delta, you are my hero! Hartsfield Airport, not so much."
Cons: "2 hr delay"
Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Pros: "My comfort zone seat"
Cons: "The plane was late to JFK and then we had to wait for them to deboard and prepare for us to get one. Now we are in DCA and we can’t even get to our gate for another 10 mins"
Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"
Pros: "Ontime boarding, few minutes delay made up enroute for ontime arrival."
Cons: "Cabin service interrupted by turbulent weather."
Cons: "No entertainment. Wifi didn't work."
Cons: "no access to sky club"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Cons: "Too many boarding calls for different levels of service."
Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "My daughter was traveling alone (as a college freshman) for the second time and her bag was overweight. The counter agent was impatient with her and made her feel embarrassed"
Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
Pros: "nice new plane, lots of room"
Cons: "No fuel available"
Cons: "The boarding announcement speaker was broken, so the flight attendants needed to yell out."
Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"
Pros: "Appreciated the opportunity to upgrade at a reasonable price because the flight was so full"
Cons: "The "Miami based" crew were a little abrasive"
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Pros: "The entertainment options was awesome used the on board wifi and the flight cruised by"
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning is always such a hassle"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Sears are pretty tiny for comfort"
Cons: "Seats small"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Pros: "Delayed 4 hours. Strung along the entire time. Awful experience. Inability to get hotel."
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Pros: "many movies"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Pros: "I am handicapped so I was concerned about my walker and ability to use stairs etc. The crew on the plant and boarding area couldn’t have been more helpful. I was impressed by the comfortable seats and friendly stewardesses. After the plane landed the first officer went to get my walker so I didn’t have to wait."
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Cons: "Kiosk sign-in tried to sell several upgrades prior to issuing boarding pass. Very irritating! Seating was very cramped"
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "It was all good.it was"
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and as I have a disability they gave me a chair with moreegroom and closer to the exit."
Cons: "It took a long time before they offered beverages, we were in the air for more than 1.5 hours before they came by to offer drinks"
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "The first leg of trip had a newer aircraft......potentially due to the "mechanical delay" that started the fiasco."
Cons: "I don't usually do reviews, but this experience has prompted me too. I usually pick American over other airlines even if the price is slightly higher but after this last fiasco I doubt I will fly with them again. From the start of the trip there was a delay. I was told that I would have to stay in a hotel in Charlotte because I would miss my connecting flight. I agreed and waited for my flight that was nearly 2 hours late. I arrived in Charlotte and retrieved my bag as instructed and went to the counter. The lady then stated that it was probably best if I tried to get on the last remaining flight even though it showed sold out because "there have been delays all day and plenty of people have been missing their connecting flights". So I rechecked my bag and headed to the game. This flight was delayed, as it was the last for the night, so that all the connecting flights could be made. Okay, that is fair enough....even though I didn't get to board and now I no longer had my bag as this is now on the plane. 30 minutes after the plane left I finally get my voucher for motel along with a $12 voucher for food that can only be used in the terminal restaurants......which are now closed for the night. After 30 minutes of trying to contact the hotel for shuttle information I was advised that they were no longer taking airline vouchers. I , again, approached the ticket counter and I was advised that I "would just have to wait because there are no rooms in the system at this time." And none of this instruction seemed professional or accommodating. After another hour I was approached that now there are no other options in their system for accommodations and I would have to pursue options on my own. So......the higher priced one way ticket just became $100 more at no fault of my own."
