Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "First class lav was filthy."
Pros: "Every thing except food"
Cons: "A couple more vegetarian choices would have been better!"
Cons: "Really comfortable. Great flight"
Pros: "All smooth."
Cons: "All okay"
Pros: "Makeup was on point!"
Pros: "Surprised to find seat was comfortable.."
Pros: "Free upgrade!!!"
Cons: "the overhead storage was tiny!"
Cons: "Alaskan did away with the food & drinks on demand, part of which made virgin so special. Also internet did not work and documentation of it was wrong anyway, not good for work commuters. Flight was over a halfhour late taking off, however displays said ontime and sfo staff ignored the queue waiting to ask questions"
Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Tons of legroom"
Pros: "The food and drinks were good once they got there. Entertainment was adequate."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the charger under the seat didn't work, the flight attendants said to just order food and drinks on the screen but it took at least 30 minutes for them to arrive."
Cons: "Hard seats"
Pros: "No one in the middle seat... friendly attentive staff. Clean plane."
Cons: "It was very nice no complaints"
Pros: "I hate this bus thing"
Pros: "I had an empty seat and the stewardess asked me if it was ok to move a person, so I agreed. She gave me miles just for that."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "First time (and hopefully last) flying Alaskan. Boarding was ok, not the most efficient but it worked. Once aboard a predicted snow storm started (in Seattle so not the first time this has happened) and we had to de-ice. This process was exceptionally long, in fact so long that we had to add fuel for the trip. These two delays conveniently “timed out” the pilots, brilliant! Total delay was over 4 hours, all to be blamed on their ineptitude. Seems like the norm for airlines these days but this was blatant mismanagement."
Cons: "The free chat feature did not work on my iPad."
Pros: "Easy on and off for a holiday weekend. Entertainment system worked well..."
Cons: "Texting service wasn't always working, suspect it follows if the internet was working.... Austin baggage claim needs improvement... 30+ minites for bags to hit belt."
Pros: "I’m a tall guy and there was finally enough room for my legs on a plane"
Pros: "On time and uneventful. That's all I really want or expected. Alaska came through in flying colors (pun intended)."
Cons: "On my return flight it seemed that the attendants were trying to stop anyone other than the 19 or 20 people in first class from using the forward bathroom. On my flight out, the cabin was asked to "wait at row 6" for the bathroom to be free. That seemed reasonable, even though I was in row 6, and fair to ask. However, on my return flight they seemed to expect the entire rest of the plane to use the rear bathroom. That doesn't seem right."
Cons: "I should have been given a chance to pick my seat. I had to pay for an upgrade because I was give a seat in the middle of the last row"
Pros: "Time literally flew by. The staff were friendly, they're always on time or early, and they've never lost a bag."
Pros: "Got there safely and on time. The staff was very friendly, one stewardess interacted with everyone individually, thanking them for choosing Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "I'm tired of being crammed into small and uncomfortable seats. It seems comfort is only for people who can afford it. Headrests were non-existent. I'm not extraordinarily tall but the seat stopped just above my neck and felt like a hard, sharp surface rather than something soft and padded. And, of course, there's not enough leg room. Especially once the person in front of you leans back. I don't mean to sound petty but it felt like the airline was more worried about maximizing profits at the expense of their guest's comfort."
Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No wine, had to be shuttled to terminal. Done ever time after Virgin purchase. (At LAX)"
Pros: "Smooth experience all around"
Cons: "The flight left without me and six other passengers, despite the fact that I got to the gate at 5:30am for a 5:45am flight."
Pros: "They left and landed early! The staff was pleasant and very helpful."
Pros: "never booking with alaska airlines again"
Pros: "Very convenient to fly from Santa Rosa to LA"
Cons: "It was a small plane so it was a little crowded"
Pros: "Liked being able to board the plane from both ends, much quicker."
Cons: "No entertainment but none was expected"
Cons: "After arriving at the santa rosa airport, an airport smaller than most bus stations, I tried to print my boarding pass at the kiosk, it told me to go the Alaska desk for assistance, easy enough considering theres only 1 desk in the entire airport, however there were no Alaska employees there. I waited, and waited, and started to panic as the flight time approached but knew the plane was literally 10 steps away so I did my best to remain calm. I tried to enter when people started to board, but despite my confirmation number, receipt for my flight and 2 forms of photo ID, the security team informed me that I must get a boarding pass from the non existent Alaska air employees. After waiting for 45 minutes and watching my plain board and fly away, an employee finally showed up and did his best to help me, but also told me its normal for Alaska to leave their assistance desk unmanned, and I should have used the kiosk... Which didn't work. After putting me on a bus to SF airport and assuring me they have a flight waiting for me with united. I was surprised to discover they actually shipped me to an airport 2 hours south, with no ticket waiting for me. After a 24 hour ordeal I finally made it to my destination, and all I was offered for their horrible customer service and "forgetting" to confirm the flight they claimed was waiting for me, was a 24$ food voucher!!!! Wow, a full day late for my cousins wedding, but I got a food voucher! I'm shocked and appalled at their lack of professionalism and will NEVER fly with Alaska again"
Pros: "The ease with which we disembarked. Having two options to exit made it so nice. I was out the door in two minutes."
Pros: "Easy checked bag drop off. Loved not driving to SFO . Easy boarding . The whole experience was great much more relaxed than when I have to go to the city . This is my first time flying out of STS . Loved it ."
Cons: "Small commuter plane , but I'll have to get used to it ."
Cons: "No window shades...on a sunny day. Uncomfortable, unsafe and difficult to work on a computer. ps, at leadt I got on the flight. This airline is ruthlessly unsympathetic to people that miss boarding - even when plane not full and even when there is a second holding area requiring additional wait time."
Pros: "Great stewards, great price, comfortable + clean + modern airplane. What else could you ask for"
Cons: "I could ask for live TV on the backs of the seats, as with Jetblue and others"
Pros: "Really cramped overhead storage. Not TSA dimensions."
Pros: "Loved the staff!!"
Cons: "6 am is really early"
Pros: "The crew were all great."
Cons: "I had a window seat and the window itself looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. It was not only dirty but it was gross. Smears of what appeared to be a dried up liquid or something. Lastly, there were smeared boogers in several different spots around the window. I didn't want to touch anything. Seriously the nastiest flight I've been on."
Pros: "Overall great."
Pros: "Complimentary beer"
Pros: "Sonoma county airport is the easiest airport to travel through with the friendliest TSA and airport employees. I got there 40min before my flight where I checked my baggage, went through security, and had 15min to spare before boarding."
Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."
Cons: "No closed captions --"
Cons: "YOU CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR OVERWEIGHT PACKAGE."
Pros: "Friendly staff, and the flight was pretty empty so I got a whole row to myself."
Pros: "My flight was inexpensive and convenient. None of the travel stress I hear about. Everything about the travel during my trip was on the money!"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Nothing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "A red eye that boarded late-- Oof. I tried to upgrade to first class, but it was sold out. I had never been on an upgrade wait list before, so when I (very politely!) asked what my chances were since my name was next up on the screen. The attendant at the service desk was very snippy with me, as if I were being demanding or rude. I had a smile on my face, and spoke in a low voice, wasn't begging or sighing or guffawing. There was no one else at the counter, just me and the attendant who treated me like I was the most annoying loser he'd ever met, for no reason. The flight itself was so cramped that I couldn't sleep, of course. I was hoping to catch some shut-eye on this red eye, because I had to be at work in the morning. No such luck. Alaska really, really, really needs to open a mid-day flight from SEA to ATX. Only 5am and 11pm aren't cutting it, and both flights were jam packed. Six hours is an awfully long layover."
Pros: "Took care of us, gave us snacks and drinks, and pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Plane almost caught up in flames. Gas was filled through the entire plane. Had a big scare."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "They looked for 18 people to get off the plane because of weight restrictions and the process was very disorganized"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. They offered to valet my bag as I was boarding when they saw that it was cumbersome for me. The stewardess put me in a great seat when I was helpful to another passenger upon boarding. Also everyone seemed to be quite attentive and helpful during the covid situation, where people are a bit unnerved. I appreciated the effort to make everyone happy."
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough, but the rest of the flight was a dream. Definitely one of the better experiences Ive had in my 34 years of flying."
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane."
Cons: "Bring back beverage service when you can!"
Cons: "Its okay"
Cons: "They could at least announce boarding group 4..."
Cons: "More beverages"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "Travel time was great"
Pros: "Free checked bag. Comfy seats back in row 27."
Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."
Pros: "The window seat of this plane is so closely placed to the window that you can hardly sit straight up and down. Food is non existent and one drink offered in 4.5 hours is bad service"
Cons: "Virtually everything"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Most was as expected."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had to wait 5 and a half hours in the airport and not being compensated by the airline, who for some reason penalize anyone of their passagers if they are late or want to change a flight. I was also late for a meeting"
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "entertainment monitor for my seat did not work at all. also on all flights: I was not aware one needed one's own headphones to hear entertainment."

Cons: "would like more comfort in the seats and a pretty young lady sitting next to me."
Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."

Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."

Cons: "Gate was changed and Houston is a huge airport so lots of walking, flight was delayed, no snacks and only room temp water offered, no entertainment provided"
Pros: "My trip overall was great . I like the many stops for us to walk around and not be stuck in the plane for 11 plus hours . Our planes all the way to Zurich and back had no delays at all . Awesome"

Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Pros: "Sadly, I am unable to find anything positive to say, aside from one customer service agent at LAX of the 7 I dealt with"
Cons: "The lack of accountability. Rude staff. The TSA was even more welcoming. Any time I had a question, I was pawned off to another agent, who would ignore me. I had to walk back and forth from gate to gate and was charged $310 for luggage."
Cons: "These "free" snacks are S-T-A-L-E."
Cons: "Only water"
Pros: "Can not think of anything"
Pros: "Quick flight"

The flight attendant said she'd try to reset the monitor and then never came back the rest of the flight. I also was not compensated for agreeing to take another flight than the one I booked, paid for and successfully checked in for.
