Nice comfortable ride. Flight attendants were all nice too.

Gogoinflight app does not let you watch a second movie easily. I finished watching a movie and tried to select another movie to watch but the app does not let me go back to the main menu. I had to restart my device couple of times. "Go back to main menu" button will be nice.

New aircraft with plugin for laptop, free movies, and WiFi for a price. Friendly and professional crew. Totally productive flight. Alaska Air is my new favorite.

First time flying with Alaska, and they were great. Quick, efficient, friendly, and my seat was comfortable enough that I was able to nap. I won’t ever fly with anyone else if I can help it.

Staff were respectful Plane was warm enough Left on time Extended leg room seats were actually comfortable Not next to toilets

Food was somewhat disappointing. Ordered a gluten free meal which somehow turned into a vegetarian meal - that was disappointing.

Boarded in, then boarded out. Told aircraft was not inspected then delayed by ~2 hours due to bolts loose in a wing plate despite brand new aircraft

Nothing.

UA supervisor literally said, “It’s not our fault so now hotel assistance and you have to leave airport. When I asked what we should do since all the hotels were booked he said, “You can go anywhere you want to go but you can’t stay here.” Callous, uncaring, worst experience since I was in Desert Storm!

Seats were very comfortable. Was able to recline back and had excellent leg room. Area looked clean and organized.

Captain didn't say much before or during the flight like most do. Not a big deal-it was a short flight.

The flight was practically empty!

Paid for comfort, Delta offered free drinks to everyone. Unfortunately though the flight attendant did not bring us the alcohol we ordered and mixed 3 different kinds of whiskey into two glasses! We always are given our bottles separate from the mixer. Oh well. Did to being in so late it took us an hour to get a cab in Detroit.

They did not let me use the restroom, I called for assistance and they just came and turned off the assistance light and left, I had to wait 40 mins just to use the bathroom because they didn’t want to open it, I understand that the seatbelts light was on but when you have to go you have to go. The ladies in the back were really rude

Ticket confirmation numbers are not provided with third party companies. I tried e-ticket #, confirmation #, reservation #s and none of it worked. The flight rep at the counter printed a ticket and told me the number listed on it my confirmation # and I should use it on my way back. That # was expired when I was having problems checking in online.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
