Pros: "Straight flight"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours waiting for “catering.” When we were about to pull out, we had to go back to the gate because of a passenger fight. Very unpleasant flight. This could have all been avoided."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the leg room for a 5 ft 10 inch man was fine in the main cabin. Pre ordered food and that was good."
Cons: "If people understood how to get off the plane"

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Comfortable seating."

Cons: "If flight 339 from Orlando to San Diego is not delayed by one hour. It was hot and uncomfortable waiting in the plane for one hour before taking off.."

Pros: "the crew was good my seat was broken so they moved me into a premium seat which w very comfortable"
Cons: "and explanation could of been made while we were standing in the jet way waiting to board for about 15-20 minutes"

Pros: "Was the seat super comfortable? Absolutely not. But no worse than any other flight."
Cons: "We were seated behind a family, including an infant and two children under 4. The kids had no concept of “indoor voice” and were up and wired the entire flight; the parents abstaining from trying to keep them quieter. I believe I will get some sound-cancelling headphones For the next flight."

Cons: "Assigned seats."

Pros: "Loved the crew"

Pros: "Not sure how we mistakenly booked premium economy but the extra legroom was nice."
Cons: "Didn’t try the food. Entertainment required a pre downloaded app which we didn’t have."

Pros: "Comfortable, smooth flight"
Cons: "A bag was lost despite being checked in at the same time as two others on a direct flight."

Pros: "The coffee was good and the crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The transfer was very rushed. I know it’s hard to control those things, but 45 minutes turned out to NOT be enough time between flights, especially because the first flight was taxiying for 20 minutes once we landed, which was an unanticipated delay."

Pros: "Always happy with Alaska"

Pros: "We flew to and from with Alaska for our honeymoon and they were awesome."

Cons: "Only thing served on flight was beverages"

Pros: "Good crew, early arrival, great plane (737-800)!"
Cons: "Hard landing (half point deduction) 9.5 ;-)"

Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "Not enough space for everyone's luggage"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "No televisions in the headrest"

Cons: "I didn’t like about not knowing your seats and being blocked by the airline."

Pros: "I'm an alaska member so I have taken quite a few flights with them and I notice the service difference after a while. Generally the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no beverage or food service till ~2 hrs into the flight. No air issues etc. that would cause a delay. There was only 1 service in a 5.5 hr flight. The previous crew served us beverages at least 2-3 times and carried water up and down. Coming from +90 degree weather everyone is thirsty. I bought food soon as I got on, I have a toddler.. it was delivered over 2 hrs later, luckily I came prepared with lots of snacks. Also there are no hot vegetarian meal purchase options on the flight to Mexcio/Costa Rica (which was the first leg of our trip) we had to make do with cheese/fruit platters."

Pros: "It was a smoooth good flight. Flight attendants were great and helpful"

Cons: "food is terrible !!! need improvement"

Pros: "I generally love Virgin/Alaska. The crew is friendly and the flights are generally on time."
Cons: "The WiFi was inoperable for the duration of the 5-6 hour flight."

Pros: "Overall, good flight."
Cons: "I pay for first class because I want a higher level of peace and quiet and a lower level of distractions. On two instances, first during the mid flight cockpit bathroom break, and second during the 30 min final descent, the crew engaged in conversations between themselves in such load and animated voices that it was impossible for passengers sitting in the first four - five rows to ignore them. During the cockpit break, the young handsome pilot flirted with the young beautiful flight attendant who had positioned herself to block access to the forward bathroom. They chatted for what seemed like 10 min, her standing and facing us, him standing directly behind her, also facing us. We felt like we were on a soap opera set. And during the final 30 descent into Seatte, when we from Florida were extremely tired, the two forward flight attendants talked with each other in such load voices that it was impossible to keep reading my book. Admittedly, they were just chatting, but doing so in such a load voice that we could not escape."

Pros: "I didn’t have any problem at all everything worked perfectly"

Cons: "I really wish the airline could sort out the whole "check at the gate for seating" because I don't think anyone wants to buy a plane ticket just to deal with the uncertainty of if they are going to be able to fly or not."

Cons: "We had a specific situation on our flight tonight that was especially disruptive. Shortly after take-off, my fiancé who was traveling with me, felt the teenager (most likely a minor) directly behind him pushing his seat. My fiancé turned around to ask her to stop. Rather than apologizing and stopping, the teenager immediately began complaining about how my fiancé was encroaching on her space. My fiancé replied that it was well within his rights to lean his seat back. The teenager responded with further complaints. Her comments were out of line and rude. It was clear that she was not satisfied with my fiancé having his seat leaning back. My fiancé eventually put his seat back, and the teenager stopped complaining. We believed that the situation had been resolved, but apparently the teenager was not satisfied. Instead, she went to a flight attendant and lodged a complaint against my fiancé. Rather than hear our side, the flight attendant immediately asked us to move to a different seat. We were forced to move, against our will, to two separate middle seats further forward in the plane. We no longer were able to sit next to each other for the remaining five hours of the flight. And this was all because one particular teenager did not want my fiancé to put his seat back, which he is certainly allowed to do. Overall, the situation was handled poorly. We paid to sit together on a flight, but due to one other passenger's attitude, we were forced to sit in seats that we did not choose apart from one another. The flight attendant should have at least heard our side of the story and offered us an alternative. Instead, we were forced to accommodate another passenger who was in the wrong. Not to mention, throughout this entire process - which lasted about 30 minutes - I was not able to use the GoGo Inflight Internet Package I had just paid for. That was money wasted. The experience was embarrassing, disruptive, and awkward. We love Alaska Airlines, and we are usually pleased with their customer service. However, tonight, the customer service we received did not meet our needs; instead the flight attendant exacerbated the situation and we left our flight feeling frazzled, angry and disappointed."

Pros: "This was our first time on Alaska Airlines. We flew nonstop from Orlando to Portland. Staff and crew were excellent! We arrived early and our bags were already on the carousel by the time we got to baggage claim!"
Cons: "At Orlando (MCO), there was no line for baggage drop off for passengers who had already checked in online or at a kiosk. The line was the same whether you had already checked in or not, which seems to defeat the purpose of checking in before getting in line."

Pros: "The crew on the plane and on the ground were all very patient and helpful."
Cons: "Narrow seats and the seat pockets are really tiny."

Pros: "Helpful crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "middle seat, my 13 yo son was in a different row and we couldn't communicate in flight. It would be nice if when booking there was automatically an option to put families together - without an addition fee to select seats. There were enough seats avail when I booked, but not once I arrived to the airport."

Pros: "Empty seat between us. Entertainment was good. Bags made it to the baggage claim before we did!"
Cons: "Flight attendant had an attitude when I boarded. I went to put my carryon item in overhead compartment and she questioned me asking my seat number. My seat included a carryon and she had an attitude for no reason."

Cons: "The plane was ancient. Cabin was freezing, seats were rocks. Using an old short-haul CRJ for a 3.5 hour flight sucked."

Pros: "Kinda confusing the train finding the gates"

Cons: "Seat too cramped"

Cons: "The fact that I can’t purchase a drink is ridiculous! I am willing to pay $8 for a can of beer and still can’t buy one. I believe many companies are using the coronavirus excuse as cost saving measures."

Pros: "So frendly"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Better seat cushions! There is not much padding & the seats get really hard."
