Cons: "2 hour delay on take off"

Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"

Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "Great flight crew! Got exit row seating (16C) and the drinks kept coming! Friendly and personable staff!"
Cons: "Boarding can be improved... no respect for seat numbers as you can general board apparently any time. Wifi cuts out (messenging) as you are near Cabo so get your messaging done! And only a biscuit :/ Download the GoGo app before you go for entertainment!"

Cons: "When I went to check in in San Jose, they told me I was double booked on the flight to Seattle. One booking was paid for but not connected with the Reykjavik flight and the other booking was not paid for and connected to the Reykjavik flight. I spent 30 minutes at the first class check in counter of alalska air and then another 20 minutes at the gate almost missing the flight."

Pros: "Fast abs friendly, knowledgeable staff."

Pros: "Fast service, very professional and great customer service! Overall, a very pleasant flying experience."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Boarding was a breeze and hassle free. They brought around beverages 3 times during the flight. Right before landing they handed out complimentary cocktails. This was my first time flying with Alaska Airlines, I would fly them again."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "I love traveling Alaska airlines. The staff is amazing, easy loading on plane etc. My only complaint is the minuscule seats. Seriously, why so tiny?"
Cons: "Teeny tiny seats."

Pros: "Very on time . New airplane . Easy ride"

Pros: "The ONLY thing I liked was my seats. Closer to the main door. The faster I get off this plane the faster my vacation starts. Maybe your employees need a vacation too!"
Cons: "The stewardess were quit rude made the whole experience horrible thanks Alaskaairline"

Cons: "flight was delayed by ~30 min delay although handled well ... the boarding terminal screen was not reflecting the new departure time as staff was busy boarding another flight... i guess. Overall experience was fine just a small bit which could have been handled better."

Cons: "Wrapped glassware in checked in luggage. Glassware looked so broken as if someone jumped on the suitcase. Never saw crushed glass like that."

Pros: "Friendly staff outside checkin counter to help with baggage"

Pros: "Everyone was very nice and wonderful to my 2 and half year old."
Cons: "I didn't get much help from the stewards with my car seat and my bags. I struggled to get the seatbelt through the car seat. I guess it's not in the stewards job description. And only pretzels for a snack! What happened to peanuts! Need some protein to stave off hunger."

Cons: "No organization for lining up to board the plane. Boarding was announced by row but there was no procedure to confirm that only those passengers were boarding at the time."

Cons: "Had to pay for food and entertainment."

Pros: "Flight was ok"
Cons: "Price of $600 RT via kayak search engine was 300% more than others paid who were on trip with me. I was mortified when I find this out"

Cons: "The plane was almost 1 hour late leaving San Jose, which made me miss my flight from SJ to Petersburg,ak.So I spent the nite there at the airport in Seattle,Wa"

Pros: "Staff was very personable. Power plugs at seat and good leg room. Plane felt modern."

Pros: "Very effect flight with great service"
Cons: "Everything went great!"

Cons: "Unable to select seating together at time of booking"

Cons: "People I sat next to stole armrests and wouldn't trade me seats even though they were together."

Cons: "The plane was freezing. I fly very frequently, never seen anything like that. Got sick."

Pros: "Early arrival."

Pros: "Legroom was fine."
Cons: "We bought six tickets as a group for a flight to Cabo, three months ahead of the date of flight, paying almost twice as much as the fares were later. We also promptly checked in 23.5 hours prior to departure. Unfortunately, Alaska assigned no two seats together. We couldn't change it because they said the flight was full. Our two kids flew with us, and one of whom is a 12 year old girl. Even she couldn't be accommodated to sit with one of us. The staff on the phone and at the airport were of no help because the flight was full. In all other international flights I have taken over the past 30 years, the airline company always does group seat assignments appropriately so we are all seated together. Disappointed. Won't be recommending the airline to anyone. Sorry."

Cons: "TSA needs to get their act together. This was ridiculous. Boarding is always going to be a 1/2 until the airlines can figure this out. Whatever their doing isn't working and it is just getting worse."

Pros: "A very mice crew, comfortable and nice fligjt."

Pros: "San Jose, Calif to Guadalajara. Super nice crew, had some leg room in economy. Some drinks, two cookies and a bean burrito. Not much, but small quantity good amount in morning."
Cons: "Seats a bit slouchy. No lower back and headrests to forward. Made me more hunchback, and lower back achy (maybe that's normal for 3-4 hour). No tvs, snacks OK."

Pros: "I liked the snacks and beer on the plane but that was it."
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late to my 6:30am flight because of sjc security being the worst, slowest, people ever. Then I was promised I'd make it on the 7:30am flight to Seattle but there was only one seat available so my friend went and I stayed behind where I was then told I'd definitely get on the next flight. But wait!! I wasn't allowed on the next flight and had to wait until a 12:55 flight all while sobbing and having the worst anxiety attack of my life by myself. So I'd have to say that was the worst experience of my life. Thanks!"

Pros: "Plane wasted full."
Cons: "Nothing everthing well done."

Pros: "This one was late due to maintenance issues, but they beat the new take off time by 30 minutes and I had plenty of time for my connector"
Cons: "Being tall it is a little uncomfortable with head room in the restroom"

Pros: "The crew was simpatic and servicing"
Cons: "The in-flight systems did not work even in the USA. Too limited offert of free entertainment when it worked"

Pros: "Clean, roomy, not a packed flight. Great price and friendly crew!"

Cons: "No internet in the flight"

Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."

Cons: "Smallest plane ever. Absolutely no leg room or overhead space."

Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."

Pros: "Flight attends are very friendly."

Pros: "Great flight"

Cons: "Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong."

Pros: "It didn’t happen"
Cons: "It didn’t happen"

Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"

Pros: "delivered as expected"
Cons: "drink cart earlier and more often"

Pros: "Comfortable flight and was able to get a couple hours of sleep in."

Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"

Pros: "Friendly crews"

Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour. Wasted so much time."

Cons: "Another delay on second segment of cross country flight — this time for maintenance issues that were never fully explained. took off an hour late from DFW."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."

Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."

Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"

Cons: "5 delays with the flight. Had to Switch to a flight leaving from SFO and pay $60 for an Uber to get to SFO"

Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."

Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"

Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."

Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."

Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"

Pros: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"

Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"

Cons: "No pre boarding for family with kids"

Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."

Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."

Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Airlines should board from the back first. That would eliminate all the jostling of passengers already seated in the front, as well as the clogging of aisles as passengers trying to load their bags into overhead bins or under seats bar the way for passengers with seats behind the people blocking the aisles. It would also make it easier for flight attendants to get to passengers who need assistance. Seats are too narrow for the size of most American passengers. The people next to me on both my flights took up part of my space and pressed against me because their upper bodies were too large to fit in their seat space. Paying to check a bag on a domestic flight is very irritating."

Pros: "Smooth sailing. Staff pleasant and professional. Orderly flight"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"

Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"

Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."

Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."

Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."

Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"

Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."

Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"

Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"

Cons: "I choose my seat to accommodate a physical condition. My seat was changed at the last minute and that made the flight very uncomfortable."

Cons: "The delay my fly canceling poor communication I miss my dates etc"
