Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great flight and wonderful service"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Person next to me was pleasant."
Cons: "Seats hard and uncomfortable, head rests didn't go up. Plane did appear to be new."
Pros: "We got stuck with the very back seats, that don’t recline. Was rough as it was an overnight flight. I liked that we had an early arrival!"
Pros: "Good crew, thank you."
Cons: "Better coffee!"
Pros: "The people were sweet and patient"

Cons: "I didn’t get a seat assignment"
Pros: "The flight was quick with food available for purchase. Seats were fine."
Cons: "The gate waiting area was very very watm"
Pros: "The crew at Alaska is top tier! They are always the friendliest, on the phone or in person. I was stuck in the Seattle snow storm and they were so helpful with flight changes"
Cons: "There was no tv on the plane and no complimentary snack/drink"
Pros: "Crew was very efficient. First class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The airport terminal at KOA belongs in the stone age. It's not air conditioned. Its sound system is overwhelmed by ambient noise. We walk across the tarmac in the blazing sun and climb rickety ladders to board the plane. Hard wooden benches for seats while waiting. Too few schedules boards."
Pros: "Spiffy plane; nice, attentive flight attendant."
Pros: "I thought vueling or wow when I first got on the plane.. 5.5 hr flight and I wouldnt be able to walk... but the seats were wider, perhaps the molding of the seats are american sized..) the flight was comfortable and I am walking to Duke's chowder ! I didn't bother with the wifi, just used amazon downloaded videos. Was nice to have electric outlets at the seats. the crew from bwi to sea were really good. pleasant folk that worked the aisle quickly and made many trips with drinks and food."
Cons: "we bought salads and fruit plates. $54.00 for small and mediocre food. I was thinking that it would be better, give the price. On the way home we will pass (unless over ridden)"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Cons: "Two rows up from us, I kid threw up all over the center aisle as we were pulling away from the gate. We returned to the gate to allow a cleaning crew to board and clean. However, the cleaning job was rushed and left remnants of the throw up behind which smelled the whole 2.5 hour flight. It really felt unsanitary and unsafe being that it’s unknown what caused the child to get sick. It very well could have been a stomach virus and could have infected the people in rows around the incident due to the mediocre cleaning job. I understand that it’s important to keep flights on-time, especially for connecting flights, but the safety of the passengers and their health should ALWAYS be the #1 priority."
Pros: "The flight itself was great."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late boarding and we spent another 1/2 hour waiting in line to take off."
Pros: "Plenty of space. Arrived early"
Pros: "All done right. They know how to do airline!"
Cons: "On the leg from Seattle to Anchorage there was a significant time delay due to a “medical situation” I suspect a young female passenger had a few to many drinks and puked all over the back of the plane prior to take off. It happens and is really no ones fault but her own. I guess being the smug person I am I would like to see Alaska be compensated by the young lady"
Pros: "I didn’t have any problem at all everything worked perfectly"
Pros: "Friendly staff, quick to get on the plane after a long wait in the security line. TSA is very inefficient in SAN."
Cons: "The cabin crew didn’t let us know we got free drinks on the premium seating area. Hey should invite us proactively to order our drinks. The menu does not contain info on what is included on the premium seating purchased. The seats are too narrow."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Aisle was kind of narrow on the plane"
Pros: "How's things were directed."
Cons: "I wish the boards on the screen were bigger so we could read from a distance. To check flights.. baggages and gate numbers."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time."
Pros: "Flight attendants very attentive and helpful as well as a smooth fligh."
Cons: "Departed late was the only thing, otherwise very good."

Pros: "Same as before."
Cons: "The flight was super hot! I have been hot on the tarmac before which happens but it was hot the whole 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "6 hour delay with no compensation"
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than two hours out of Missoula. Reason wasn't made clear by the crew. Updates from Alaska were good, but the extensive delay was a disappointment."
Cons: "Why board us and then deplane us. Surely they knew this was a problem. Friends flying other airlines didn't have to board and deplane when delayed due to SFO runway maintenance. I am sure the airlines all knew about the construction and should have altered their flights rather than inconveniencing the passengers at the last minute."
Pros: "nice helpful employees. On time service."
Pros: "-The tablet entertainment option was great since there was no inseat entertainment. The cost of of the tablet was cheap and allowed you access to everything, which is different from other airline a-la-carte purchasing of different entertainment. -Crew was great, food/beverage service was also great."
Cons: "-At HNL there was poor signage to get from the rental car return to the airline. Once we got into the terminal it really wasn't clear if we should go left or right, We wound up asking an American employee where Alaska was. -After the checked bag agriculture inspection it was not clear that you go to the kiosks there right after the inspection. I think it partially wasn't clear because there were multiple large groups traveling with tons of luggage and you go straight to the kiosks and then back track to hand over your checked bag. The line for checking the bag vs needing help wasn't clear either. Luckily there were Alaska employee's there helping at the kiosks and with the bag checking so it did go smooth but could definitely be better."
Pros: "$25 meal voucher. Helpful staff who made sure everyone made connecting flights or were rerouted"
Cons: "Repeated delays. 5+hrs in airport."
Pros: "They began boarding early, left on time, arrived early, baggage available quickly. Great crew. Helpful and friendly. Smooth takeoff and landing. Pilot shared relevant details with passengers, nice to know what to expect. They served Starbucks coffee; better than the usual on other airlines."
Cons: "A wheel broke off of my suitcase but they got on it right away to compensate (repair or replace); I'm sure this will be handled - no pun intended - properly! :)"
Pros: "Seats are a little larger n more legroom for my 6'2" big man of a husband"
Pros: "I was checking in in a fluster and trying to attach my bag tags. A agent came over and helped me (for some reason I had taken the entire sticky back off ha!) and then he took my bag for me right from the kiosk. I was super impressed"
Pros: "Overall no complaints about flying from Newark to San Diego. The extra legroom in coach was much appreciated as this is how Alaska sets up their seat configuration. Flight attendants came through numerous times with beverages. Having the free movies available on your personal device great. I also liked having the ability to print out my bag tags I had a time and just dropping off my check in baggage quickly."
Cons: "Only reason I couldn't give 5 stars was limited free snacks as they gave some small cookies. Even having some small bags of chips like they do on JetBlue would be nice. My flight was delayed 90 min, so that was painful."
Pros: "The service was wonderful and the airline was amazing at taking care of us and apologizing for the delay with a $100.00 voucher"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed but they did provide a 100 off coupon so it was nice of them."
Pros: "Food was close by."
Cons: "The chargers in the chairs didn't work."
Pros: "Flight attendants were all nice. And especially the workers at the gate they helped me my son and mother change seats to be able to sit together. Everyone was friendly"
Pros: "has better leg room than American airlines has."
Pros: "The only thing I didn't agree with was we asked to change my dads seat to a seat more room bc he had hurt his back while on vacation the seat was open that we wanted but they still charged $50.service charge."

Cons: "Some were not"
Pros: "Price no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating and lack of entertainment."
Cons: "At the airport before collecting my boarding pass I was told to pay additional $25 for te baggage I was carrying! Am an international traveler and asked for an exception to be made for the waiver of that fee as I couldn't figure that out while booking my ticket online, the information was so poorly reflected on the website! Spoke to a supervisor on duty and she was extremely rude and terrible as far as listening was concerned! Maybe people can be more human during such times, listen and take some feedback rather than stating a loud no and asking straight away to pay?"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!"
Cons: "Never Never Ever will i take another United flight out of Dulles, this is TWO times in one week that I missed the transfer flight out of Dulles. For the exact same reason, gate was changed last minute and the flight left early. Yeah they will give you a new flight and may even comp a room but thats doesn't help honestly!"
Cons: "Windows were dirty and that's looking for something. Lol"
Pros: "Thanks to TSA we missed our originally booked flight but United was gracious enough to book us on the next outbound flight. Once on board, it literally was smooth sailing."
Cons: "Not a fan of those chintzy pretzel bags but what can one expect from economy??"
Pros: "Service was excellent and it was on time"
Pros: "Flight attendants and other crew work long, hard hours, and I appreciate them greatly, particularly those who have enough self-awareness to be honestly gracious and friendly (as opposed to plastic smiles). I did not get this young woman's name, unfortunately, but everything about her work was exemplary. Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was just fine."

Not sure what his position was but he was walking the aisles informin us.the flight was delayed and was directing people where they could place their luggage....not a very professional representative for the aitline"

Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Everything was fine except I barely made the flight in Chicago.when arriving in Charlotte I had to wait about 10 or 15 minutes for a wheel chair to get off the plane."

Cons: "Didn't like anything."
Pros: "The flight was pretty smooth and we made up some lost time from the delays."
Cons: "This is touted as one of the newest in United's fleet. I've flown on this plane twice in the last month and the seats are the worst. They are hard plastic (feel flimsy), and have very little padding. The recline is almost nonexistent. Both times I've come off the plane with my backside feeling numb."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Waiting an hour to take off"
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Cons: "It was very crowded"
Cons: "Late arriving crew. Screw up because the ground crew forgot to throw a switch. So we left even later. Got to Charlotte and United had forgotten to request a gate."
Pros: "To have better service and put on the correct timeframe"
Cons: "Never told and delayed 5 hours. I had to call United and they switched me to American ..."
Pros: "I appreciate the fact that caught the issue with the aircraft while it was on the ground."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Service is not what it used to be!"
Cons: "I specifically booked my trip based on a 6 HR travel time. Because I was re-routed, it tacked another 4 hrs onto my trip time. I could have driven to where I was going for a fraction of the cost. It's so frustrating to fly now a days, the massive crowds, grumpy airline workers and delayed flights. I'm going to start driving more... Sick of the hassle with commercial flights."
Cons: "I did not like having to check my carry on after all. I was told the overheads were full so I could get it in Baggage after the trip. For health reasons I did not want the trip to baggage and I did not want to risk my bag being lost. I drive 3 hrs o the airport and I did not want to drive back or wait 3 days for a lost bag to be sent to me as I have before. The person at the gate was rude when I said you won't lose my luggage will you? he said Probably. I said really, and he said well you did ask."
Pros: "Friendly helpful courteous"
Pros: "I was surprised on how clean the plane was, considering it was an express. The attendance were pleasant as well."
Cons: "How small the snack bag is."
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "Feel like a number. Crowded zone two line (Platinum and below and all the darn credit card holders. Flight was delayed for no crew, then in was maintenance issue, which could not be addressed until the pilot was there. Ugh. Inefficient."
Cons: "First, when I got to the booth AFTER checking in, they told me that there isn't any more seats on the flight. The attendant proceeded to tell me "just go to JFK and see what happens" obviously I was furious. United will be lucky if I ever fly on them again"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Pros: "I liked getting to my destination safe and back safe."
Cons: "I didn't like the pulling off or the landing or the rocking while flying."
