Airline reviews

Pros: "I like the spaciousness in the front for your feet."
Cons: "The flight lasted about 5 hours, but they only offered limited small snack (chip or granola bar) and some drinks. They have sandwich and other real food but it costs around $9.5. Some other airlines provide free full meal even the flight time was only 3 hours."

Cons: "Crew could have been just a tad bit more friendly"

Pros: "Fast flight; clean cabin: tv screens at every seat"

Pros: "good service good flight"
Cons: "everything"

Cons: "Change gate not done properly"

Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Fresh food and better entretaiment"

Pros: "Alaska is my favorite airline."
Cons: "My seat assignments did not transfer to Alaska so I couldn’t get my seat assigned until just before I could board."

Pros: "More room in economy than other airlines. Thanks!"
Cons: "Still miss the live tv programs from Virgin America days."

Pros: "Half of the flight was empty. I asked of I could move to the row behind. I was told that was premium seating and I didn’t pay for that. I didn’t appreciate being addressed like that. And did ot really matter when nonoe is sitting there or plenty of other seats."
Cons: "She could have just let me sit there. I should have been told that the seat didn’t recline when the ticket was pirchase."

Cons: "Nothing - most excellent flight!"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "first class service"

Cons: "I was in the last group being boarded (D) - by the time it gets to this group it seems a kind of controlled pandemonium starts and the staff just do their best to herd people in. I have an Alaska Air credit card and one of the selling points was to board earlier, but that has not been the case, as they reserve this for their higher level customers, whatever that means. Also, on this flight, I was very unimpressed with the crew, there was a younger African American man, who was particularly unfriendly, he clearly needs remedial training in customer service. I was disappointed with my experience this time as I have mostly found the crews to be very professional."

Pros: "Both the ground crew and flight crew provided exceptional service. They were caring, attentive, and very helpful from the time we arrived at the airport in San Francisco until we landed at Washington Dulles."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."

Pros: "Flight was fine. Crew friendly. Seat comfort quite good. Movies etc great."
Cons: "Cabin very cold. Took 90 min for crew to come around for drinks and orders. Nothing to do with rough air."

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: "Roomy seats and all together comfortable."
Cons: "There wasn't anything we did not like."

Cons: "I don't normally leave reviews, but words really can't describe the nightmarishness of what should have been a quick four hour flight from San Francisco to Washington. Seats for my wife and I were not where I had reserved. Plane had one working lavatory for a cabin of 150 economy passengers. This resulted in a line that stretched the entirety of the single aisle of the plane for the majority of the flight. The second toilet simply had a piece of paper with sharpie that read "DO NOT USE!!" There were two attendants, one of whom wore a t-shirt and was mostly indistinguishable from the passengers. Didn't get so much as a cup of water until over two hours into the four hour flight. No snack, but that's the least of my complaints really. The attendants spent most of the flight in the back of the plane discussing their new vacation lottery and where they were going to go out drinking when we landed–I know because the rear of the plane was where I ended up, forced to smell the single working toilet, in a seat that didn't recline."

Cons: "The gate was switched at the last hour for no apparent reason to a gate that had a delayed flight. My flight was delayed an hour as we waited for the first flight to depart and then my flight to deplane, get cleaned, load and depart. Not sure why this needed to happen."

Pros: "Boarding smooth"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Our flight attendants were fantastic."
Cons: "The application I had to download had cookies."

Pros: "Nothing, didn’t fly"
Cons: "I purchased insurance in the event my circumstances changed and I couldn’t fly. My circumstances did change and I ended up not flying. When I contacted Alaskan, they “reimbursed” me for the flight but simultaneously charged me $125 as a change fee. The result was no benefit from the insurance, and a loss of my money as a result."

Pros: "The great selection of movies available on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed rude and not friendly."

Pros: "Also...spacious seating by coach standards"
Cons: "Never a fan of boarding zones but it was fine"

Pros: "The assistance by the San Jose CR Alaska office re; my misplaced carry on and their super help in the return exchange of backpacks"
Cons: "Meal on board charges"

Pros: "On time. Tons of free movie options. Good snack options. Comfortable seats."

Cons: "Service"

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was very friendly and the seats were very comfortable. Overall very good experience."

Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"

Pros: "Premium seating has more leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment system down. WiFi worked intermittently and was very slow. Without the system, food service was nonexistent. I actually asked for food to purchase only to have an attendant walk to ‘check’ and never return. Abysmal."

Pros: "Entertainment, free movies"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They separated my seat with my 2 years old son, far far away. My 2 yo son got the seat in row 13 while mine was row 23. Then the front desk staff could only help to switch to row 12 and row 13. We’re still not together. That’s horrible. Then when we got on the plane, I asked people around if they don’t mind to switch their seats, but still not working well. The flight attendants didn’t help at all. Just saying, “this is the best we can do.” What did they do? They didn’t even help me to work it out. Then one of the front desk staff came onto the plane and help me out. My son and I finally sit together. But the overall experience sucks! Alaska Airlines needs to train their crew to have more emphatic to the passengers."

Pros: "Crew was exceptional - friendly and took care of passengers, including helping an old lady with her bags etc."

Pros: "all was good trip and service nothing to criticize"

Pros: "The selection of movies"
Cons: "Noisy unfortunately second to last row on the plane near bathroom noise and traffic. Loud conversations behind me. At one point a woman started playing music on a device and singing loudly. This was a night flight. I think one of the passengers finally asked her to stop, I would have thought one of the flight attendants would have approached her"

Pros: "Getting to where I needed to go"
Cons: "Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!"

Pros: "Usually we fly United on a direct flight to PDX. That flight is no longer available so we chose Alaska to Seattle. Their entertainment and internet actually works making them a better option than United. Flights were on time, crew was friendly, and the aircraft was clean. No complaints with Alaskan, and actually happy to change airlines after years of being with United even though it is not a direct flight to our destination."

Pros: "Yes, they My have lost it but they delivered it to make up for the mistakes."

Pros: "Alaska is great in all ways"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were delayed. Crew was rude. Then we flew to another airport just to get fuel, which further delayed us. We arrived late to the connecting airport and missed our connecting flight home. Not given food vouchers. Had to pay for 1 checked bag despite flying internationally. Overall, very dissasatisfied with Alaska Airlines and I will be sure to go out of my way not to book again with Alaska."

Cons: "Chargers didn't work on either flight"

Cons: "Would love to see more vegan options on the menu!"

Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, easy boarding, great fast baggage claim. overall great!"

Cons: "charged for ipads, wifi didnt work,"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines was a great, very friendly crew and pilot. boarding was eazy , and the flight was on time."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "I arrived to Costa Rica on a flight from El Salvador, police hold a long line which made a lot of people loose their connection flight including myself. After losing my flight, Alaska did NOTHING TO HELP to get a new flight or get hotel accommodation. Alaska employees showed great disregard for helping stranded costumers that lose their flight even when it was not passengers foul. I will try NOT to flight on Alaska anymore!!!!"

Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Very dissappointing."

Pros: "Crew was nice, flight was smooth."
Cons: "The plane was not boarded back to front because large parties were not broken up and therefore not social distanced."

Pros: "The assurance of safe social distances, The boarding was well done. Getting off the plane was pretty good. Leaving on landing as scheduled. Keep it up"

Pros: "Everyone spaced apart on flight. Snacks handed out in individual presorted packs."
Cons: "Surprised they didn’t check everyone’s temperature before boarding."

Pros: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job."
Cons: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job. Two of the employees serving the cabin could use an attitude adjustment. The crew was late in getting food out but for a four hour flight there is no value in flying anymore. Airlines are just trying to rake in as much money as possible. When are they going to be responsible for everyone getting sick like cruise ships are? They should hand out masks and sanitizer because airlines are one of the dirtiest public spaces that there is! Show up late and barely clean the plane between its third or fourth leg of the day."

Cons: "Temperature oscillated a lot,"

Pros: "Very well organized, smooth boarding, early arroval"

Pros: "The crew were great. The seat could always be bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Examine the seats in the cabin it seems to be loose from the mounting to the floor."

Cons: "Multiple delays and changing of gates. Sitting on the tarmac waiting to deplane for longer than communicated by pilot."

Pros: "A lot"
Cons: "a little comfy seats"

Cons: "I pick Jetblue over other carriers because of the ability to watch TV. It wasn’t working today and the attendant was aloof and uncaring. What was worse was the bathroom in the back that was ‘out of order.’ Both of these made my flight less than I would expect and I will consider another carrier"

Pros: "crew man lifted and stored my bag overhead."
Cons: "More food"

Cons: "Need more vegan food options"

Pros: "Landed much earlier than expected!"

Pros: "The pilot made up time after taking off late, the coffe and popcorn was good"
Cons: "The cabin crew seemed to do nothing but try and sell you stuff from blankets, credit cards, lunch boxes they spent a lot of the flight just trying to get you to buy stuff. When we landed we landed so fast the pilot had to brake very hard that life jackets came out of the pockets under the seats."

Pros: "Roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I froze my butt off!"

Pros: "It was all good."

Cons: "The plane was miserably cold, with tempuratures dipping well into the 50s on the aircraft. I was shivering and sneezing the entire time, guests in the row in front of my had their leather jackets over their faces. Air was pummeling me in the window seat. It was the most miserable 2 hours on a plane I have ever experienced, and I have been on thousands. I would highly reconsider the tempuratures on the plane seeing as that this could severely sicken children and elderly. I have never experienced this before."

Pros: "On time and the comfort of legs room"

Pros: "Non chaotic boarding, efforts by gate agents to gate check carryon bags to ensure there would be enough space for those bags."

Pros: "Very easy"

Pros: "Everything smooth, and clean."

Pros: "Yes, excelente"

Pros: "Service at the ticket counter was excellent."

Pros: "There was a huge glitch in your ticketing, resulting in me confirming the same ticket 3 times. After calling Jetblue for customer service per your advice, they first suggested to give Jetblue credits for extra tickets. When I insisted that the issue was solely caused by kayak-jetblue ticketing connection issues, they supervisor approved to cancel 2 credit card payments... BUT I have to wait for 2 weeks to see the cancellation on my credit card. Unfair and ridiculous, if you as me."

Pros: "Efficient crew charge"
Cons: "Charge for earphones"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Got to my destination ahead of schedule. Great work."

Pros: "The way their. Staff treated the customers."

Pros: "Everything was smooth overall. Very spacious for being in coach and staff was friendly."
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my 1 year old. They called those traveling with young children so I started gathering my stroller and diaper bag. Before I even made it to the boarding entrance the next group was called. I had to rush with my daughter to check the stroller and get on the plane while others were loading in too."

Pros: "On time. Very organized. Great price."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff were sweet and knowledgeable."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Due to hurricane Irma, people are flooding out of Florida like rats on a sinking ship. So, the security checkpoint is an absolute mess. Meanwhile, the trains at MCO are malfunctioning badly as they chaotically try to replace them. The boarding agent acknowledged these issues as she explained to me and 5 other people that we couldn't get on the plane that wasn't scheduled to leave for 12 more minutes. Finally, thank God, a supervisor arrived and called the captain of the plane who subsequently let us board. Completely unnecessary situation. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Comfort Price"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We were not allowed to check my bag in line 2 hours early. Time listed on e boarding pass was at gate but we were in line 2 hours early and not alerted to get put ahead in lines.

Pros: "Colaboración del personal"
Cons: "Atrasos"

Pros: "Perfect trip"

Cons: "Old plane, I was in business class and no entertainment was offered and no screen was provided in the seats"

Cons: "Be on time"

Pros: "Price"

Cons: "There was not enough room to put the carrion bag in the compartments"

Cons: "Would give 0 stars if possible."

Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed. It was the worst travel experience of my life and i received no help or compensation for missing all of my other flights. All thy gave me was one stale muffin. I will never fly with this airline again."

Pros: "Nice employees."

Pros: "Due to their overbooking I was almost foreced to stay, I was told that I was travelling at my own risk: please give me a break!"
Cons: "The pushy attitude of the check in hostesses"

Cons: "Did not fly as scheduled - still in Bogota"

Pros: "Speed and punctual"

Pros: "- boarding the plane was efficient and well organised - airline staff were friendly - when my flight was canceled I was sent to a hotel and didn't have to wait around in the airport - comfortable with plenty of room, pillows and blankets"
Cons: "- My first of two flights was canceled which was poorly communicated after waiting in a queue for two hours. I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options. Would have been helpful to have known before the flight so I could have bought my own food to take on the plane. - The charging points on the back of the seat were inactive"

Cons: "Lost our bags in Panama City even though we had a five hour layover."

Cons: "To wait"

Pros: "Staff was nice. Relatively comfortable, good movie selection"
Cons: "I'm vegetarian, only ham and cheese sandwich"

Pros: "I'm very dissapointed with avianca specially.now that I have a few trips coming up. When I was at the airport I asked the clerked for specific information ,I asked him how much it would cost to take my surfboards if it was going to be to expensive I would just leave them home ,he said no problem that there would be a charge of.$120_150 and it cover the trip until denpasar ,I asked are you sure?he said YES that he would put it on the note and that if I had any problems in NY to just show them the receipt well no need to say.that.when I arrived in NY I was charged again ,the cs rep of the other airline said they wouldn't have charged if avuanca would have put that the surfboard was going until denpasanr when we said that he had done it we looked stupid because he had just checked our bags on the tag until Bali but not the surfboard. So now I have to return and I'm working if I will have.to.end up paying.$1000 in.total.just for my surfboard.when this could have been avoided from the start if the cs rep of Avianca would have told.me the truth or know how to do his Job. What solution can you give ,I feel very annoyed. Thank you"
Cons: "The beverages and punctuality"

Pros: "Friendly staff, nice snack, free checked baggage."

Pros: "My best experience so far"

Cons: "I was not informed of having to pay $150 extra for having a surfboard, very disapointing"

Cons: "This plane was too full for social distancing. I was really skeptical about this flight as it relates to the COVID pandemic."

Pros: "The crew was good, and the airline tried to make our wait in the airport as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The four-hour delay was really hard. Since it was in DC, I don't know why it took so long to get another plane."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable and I got extra Biscoff Cookies"
Cons: "Great trip"

Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."

Pros: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"

Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."

Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."

Pros: "Good flight in air"

Pros: "The crew was dealing with NOVA/DC residents"

Pros: "Coming from Europe Alitalia and Delta did an EXCELLENT job at assisting the passengers get rid of their luggage just as soon as we were done going through customs... I don't usually fly on this route, but I thought it was perfect. Transfer between Delta terminal was a breeze too..."
Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."

Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."

Pros: "The service is very good from the beginning. The flight attendant is very caring thanks so much."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"

Pros: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
