Pros: "Kayak is the best"
Pros: "Alaska is my absolute favorite airline. On time, courteous, a fair mileage plan, nice planes. Unfortunately I have to take them out of SeaTac."
Cons: "SeaTac is the worst airport in the entire country in my experience. Two examples why: 1. When I arrived this morning at 5am there was already a nearly hour long security line. 2. Upon our early arrival from California, SeaTac doesn’t have a gate for us, so we burn time and fuel on the tarmac. Like usual. One trip to any other airport and you have an appreciation for how DREADFUL SeaTac is on the whole. Some great people, but a poorly run poorly managed monstrosity of a disfinctional airport."

Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"

Cons: "I like Alaska airlines, just not the flight last night. Something was wrong with the engine and we were sitting there forever. They should have checked the engine before boarding everyone. We were sitting there with no A/C and then they had to turn the power off. They tried and tried to fix the problem but it didn't work. Then everyone had to get off the plane and there were not enough seats the next flight and no other flights that night at that airport. We had to change the airport for am flights or fly out the next day. They offered to change the tickets but nothing else. Some passengers had to pay for taxicab and hotel for the night by themselves."

Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."
Cons: "I was starving because of my short connection time and couldn't have lunch - wanted to eat something solid and they just had boxes with fruits and cheese."
Pros: "I always have a great experience on Delta! Thank you"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "my car broke down on the way to the airport"
Cons: "Out of the four frontier flights I’ve taken in the past six months each one has been delayed for some reason. First one was over an hour late and caused a majority to miss connecting flights. Today’s experience was not a whole lot different. First leg of the trip was behind schedule, second was delayed at the terminal for the “cleaning” of the aircraft. I will walk to my destination before ever flying with frontier again"
Cons: "It’d be nice to have internet access, whether free or for purchase"
Pros: "I arrived."
Cons: "It was an hour after boarding before take off. Another 15 minutes on the ground after landing waiting for a gate at midnight on a weekday. I understand that circumstances occur beyond the airlines control, but this has been routinely occurring on my trips with Frontier. Absent compelling reasons, I will not be flying with them again."
Pros: "Getting to Seattle to get away from the airline"

Cons: "Flight left hour and a half late because of scheduling problems so we were without a pilot, but we spent that whole delay boarded on the plane----thankful it was mostly empty so we could spread out, otherwise it would have been miserable."
Cons: "Outrageous charge for carry on baggage, uncomfortable seat, lack of functional tray table (tiny shelf was a cruel joke), late departure, on-board charge for everything except toilet paper, non-functional restroom, lack of reclining seats, cold temperature in the plane for the entire flight, food very expensive for minimal servings. Price not low enough to justify bad experience. Will not fly Spirit again, and will tell all of my friends and colleagues about my experience."
