I’m starting to think that Alaska Airlines is the last remaining U.S. airline whose business policy seems to be authentically rooted in genuine good will to all people, customers, non-customers and colleagues. Or maybe it’s really always been in a class by itself. It translates to excellence throughout their organization, and, well, it most certainly doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for another wonderful experience, Alaska Airlines!

American continues to surprise through their lack of consideration and cheapness Prefer to have seat empty on the front rather than move passengers that are loyal frequent flyers.

Seating is incredibly cramped now. I'm not a big guy by any means and I couldn't sit without touching the person next to me or even rest my head on the tray table, and the seat backs reclined barely 6 inches. That made it pretty much impossible to sleep on a red-eye. And there were no entertainment screen, though we had them in the EWR->SFO direction. All in all bottom 10% of flights I've been on.

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,
