Very frustrating."

Pros: "Flight attendants could not have been nicer.. highly recommend"

Pros: "Very convenient to fly from Santa Rosa to LA"
Cons: "It was a small plane so it was a little crowded"

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: "Exceptional flight crew - attentive and friendly."

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: "Great service"

Pros: "I loved the extra room for feet. And the size of the overhead storage I loved the chocolate treat And the cheery steward chatter on the overhead speaker Best flight experience in many moons Looking forward to next Alaska experience"
Cons: "My seat 12 A. Had no window"

Pros: "The staff was very attentive, friendly, and accommodating! Getting free mai tais half way through the flight was a pleasant surprise."

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: "The power outlet..."
Cons: "that it didn't have tight enough holes to hold the plug in place (it would keep falling)"

Pros: "Flight attendants offered drinks. I wasn't offered beverages on the flight from LAX to STS and was very thirsty."
Cons: "The overhead speaker was WAY too loud. It felt like they were screaming at us the whole time through the intercom."

Pros: "Really cramped overhead storage. Not TSA dimensions."

Pros: "I am a flexible, thin, 5'0" person and had a hard time sitting on that plane! Ugh. I don't know how bigger people make it through the flight."

Pros: "Crew was top notch"
Cons: "Waiting for late ppl.to board. I get there 3 hrs early because it's considered an international flight. Left an hour late. Not happy about that."

Pros: "Loved the staff!!"
Cons: "6 am is really early"

Pros: "more legroom, agent allowed me to move to a row with an empty seat."
Cons: "I think the "free" maitai was pretty awful.....would skip it next time. Hardly representative of island quality."

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

Pros: "I paid for first class and was pulled out of line and told was being moved not asked this happens so many times when I fly alone is embarrassing and not comfortable as I pay the same as them they should have done earlier. also first class wasn't much different as people were coming up non stop for bathroom not sure why.... not to be picky but is not like that on other"

Pros: "Direct flight. Yummy ginger cookies"
Cons: "Limited food choices on a flight that was not really late."

Cons: "Free TV shoes were extremely limited. Virtually nothing complimentary to watch for 5 hours"

Pros: "Good service in flight | Departed on time | Arrived early"
Cons: "Gate was changed within 20 minutes of boarding."

Cons: "American crew and gate agents are awesome!!!!"

Pros: "They looked for 18 people to get off the plane because of weight restrictions and the process was very disorganized"
Cons: "Organization"

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: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight came with free entertainment. That's a plus."

Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"

Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"

Pros: "Getting off. Entertainment system."
Cons: "The food. Working toilets. 10 abreast seating is too tight on 777. Avoid."

Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."

Pros: "Convenience"
Cons: "To change a flight they want $200! That is why I changed to Southwest."

Cons: "Leave on time"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"
Cons: "Why do you board a flight when the airport has grounded takeoffs? Just to meet some stupid metric for on-time departures, you make 100 people sit in the plane for 2 hrs, when you could have just let them wait to board. Misery."

Cons: "Our flight was overbooked and we were moved to a later flight causing a 7 hour layover and arrived at 2am the following morning."

Pros: "The entertaining, the aircraft"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "Left Newark 2 hours late which mean missing connections in Chicago by 20 minutes. From that point on American was inept in getting me to MSP."

Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"

Pros: "friendly crew, good leg room, on time dperature and arrival. entertainment"
Cons: "one of the food items (beef sandwich) has alcohol in it but I was't told so I ordered from my child then discovered it after reading the label."

Pros: "On time. Was able to sleep through much of what was likely an annoying flight because there was no personal entertainment--the tiny screens overhead would have been impossible to see and they were showing a movie that was lame. It seemed anachronistic."
Cons: "At the Lima gate they made each passenger open their carryon and submit to a secondary inspection to confiscate all water we bought past security. No warning was given about this. I had paid airport prices for water to bring onto the plane and then had to surrender it at the gate. Of course in economy class they will not give you water or attention until you are at cruising altitude. More than one flight attendant did not smile and one was actually rude in spite of my attempts to be kind and smile. Except for one friendly person at check-in kiosk, bad service overall. They do not have personal entertainment systems, and it was like going back in time with the tiny screens you cannot see, playing a movie you either watch it or not."

Pros: "Good piloting...courteous on board service"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not operational. No food..only simple snack. Even willing to pay only a simple snack box is available...few choices due to length of flight being under 3 hours."

Pros: "Nothing. It was a terrible flight with a very long delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed well over 2 hours"

Pros: "Paying for food (sarcastically) — the staff on the flight need hospitality training"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Out of wraps, sandwich disappointing. Legroom bad."

Pros: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"

Cons: "Late leaving Monterey. Other than that, fine trip"

Cons: "The maintenance crew forgot to check 1 thing and that delayed us ~1h. Enough for me to have to run to catch my connection."

Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"

Pros: "Old plane. No entertaining in seats for a 10 hour flight. Awful."

Cons: "The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate."

Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No room to sit comfortably on an 8 hr flight ."

Pros: "Very dirty and unconfortable Airport Environment."
Cons: "Combination of Business Class and Economy Class ticket sold by British Airways, although offered as Business Class. Hat a lot of Trouble with British Airways."

Pros: "The boarding was fast, the flight was faster than expected too, crew was very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Space between seats too small, breakfast not good, too far inside the plane... Not so happy of the company rules : whatever you want to change, it will cost you. I suppose it's the way to keep flights cheap, but it's not fair to pay if when you arrive first, you have to pay to change for another seat... One free luggage of 23 kg when you cross the Atlantic is not enough..."

Pros: "We liked the effiency and politeness of the staff. We enjoyed the movies, the food was better than normal."
Cons: "We were very unhappy at having to pay extra for our seats after we had booked the airfare. Especially on the way to Paris when there were so many extra available seats! I counted 50 available seats!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected."
Cons: "AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch or raise legs. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."

Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"

Cons: "When I arrived in Kingston after a long day of traveling only ONE of my TWO checked bags arrived that has my clothes swimsuits shoes jewelry and a host of other important items"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarded on time, and was a quick flight."
Cons: "There were cabin pressure issues mid-flight that really hurt my head."

Pros: "The trip, in general, was nice. The food quality and the available entertainment are good. the crew is nice."
Cons: "I had one of the smallest seats on the jet (window seats)."

Pros: "When we arrived, we found the plane was changed, and our seats were in the middle, and separated. We had paid extra to have window seats.. After speaking to one of the gate attendant ( Arturo ), he went out of his way to accommodate us, and we ended up with great seats. Friendly and accommodating crew! ."

Cons: "I believe the flight was delayed due to weather. This resulted In my seat being given away on my connecting flight."

Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"

Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"

Cons: "There was no Entertainment. No Screens. Nothing. Except one small tv on the alley. I can so no entertainment for so ever"

Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "No real food."

Cons: "I purchased extra legroom but got less - front row.Between two very large elderly gentlemen. No overhead storage either. Miserable and long flight."

Cons: "I boarded in group 2. A lot of the overhead space was already full due to the large number of priority passengers. This led to people having to go to the back to find space for bags. That creates a lot of jams at the end of the flight. Also, younger passengers often try to rush out of the plane rather than waiting for their row. This should be stopped."

Cons: "Lots of empty seats but was not available seat choice options when checking in"
