Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "In time and bring crowded"
Cons: "He abut bottled water since there’s nbther service?"
Cons: "If iris on time"
Cons: "I booked this flight from Kayak with check in luggage, then when I was in the airport I paid 60 dollars for mu check in luggages... why?"
Pros: "Great crew with a excellent personalities, nice clean plane, and just great service all around!"
Pros: "Even though I was in Group C, I was one of the first to board (Groups A, B, and C were called to board all at once). Since the gate agent said the flight was full and there would be limited space for carry-on bags, being one of the first on the plane was nice. The leg room (I'm 6'2") was good."
Cons: "The crew only did one pass through the cabin with soft drinks. Perhaps because it was a red-eye? Anyway, on a nearly 5 hour flight, I would have liked more than one small cup of refreshment."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about an hour."
Pros: "Crew is always amazing and friendly on Alaska."
Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"
Pros: "Nothing. Missed the connection due to being on the tarmac/runway for over a hour and a half. Missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything from flight schedule to customer service could have been better. Alaska Airlines is horrible"
Pros: "The person who worked in ther terminal at the podium was awesome. And the flight attendants were nice I heard a flight attendant say she was new to her coworker which sort of shocked me because she didn’t seem new. I think her name was Su."
Cons: "No coffee ... on the way to Seattle?!?"
Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."
Cons: "Entertainment system 40H not operational. This is not the first time. Overall the plane seemed a little run-down and in need of maintenance. Crew had a “couldn’t care less” attitude about passengers, very unusual in TK flights."
Pros: "Awesome !"
Cons: "The way they handled the bad weather redirected landingwas absolutely idiotic. I will not spend any more time explaining it. I expended nearly $500 to get my wife and I home. I do hope to get it back. Flight 450 from Portland to JFK that ended up in DC."
Pros: "I liked everything about this Airline the hospitality the service they treated you with respect my flight was on time and the times that I have flown Alaska Airlines we've have never had any delays, the crew acted very professional and we're very attentive. Check in was a breeze"
Pros: "I'd like adequate leg room with the ticket already purchased. I'll need at least one bag. why am I paying again for bags? Food, a decent meal without being charged even more. seriously? I already bought a ticket, stop with the nickel and diming already."
Pros: "Very polite kind staffs, Appreciated"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment!"
Cons: "No snack..."
Pros: "Typically exceeds expectations!"
Cons: "Some people smell bad in Alaska. I suppose it's the dry cabin mentality, but some people smell of body odor. It wasn't too offensive, but someone near by was smelling like an arm pit. Nothing Alaska Airlines can do about that."
Pros: "great views! pilot interactions one woman on the crew was extremely personable & friendly!!! she stood out above the rest. :) (don't know her name but short blonde hair. friend and I agreed that she was great) windows clean enough to take some great pictures from the window"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and water was offered a couple times which was nice."
Cons: "I had selected a new seat when I checked in online but my boarding pass reflected my old seat and for a nearly four hour flight only offering snacks once and water a couple times felt like it should have been more. There were also people watching movies without headphones on a red eye and there weren't any crew asking them to wear headphones since people were trying to sleep."
Pros: "I didn't have to set next to a 500 pound cow."
Cons: "Your beer and wine is sooooooo expensive."
Pros: "Attendents were great good service"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late but the fly attendents"
Pros: "I flew from Seattle to New Orleans and everything was smooth and easy. The crew was friendly and we arrived fairly early."
Pros: "Good as well. I made it home in a fair amount of time and even better there was plenty of leg room in the plane. Yeahh"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "Loved the newer plane!"
Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"
Pros: "The atmosphere was good, staff were professional and overall care for customer was good like the way it should be. Also very comfortable lots of leg room."
Cons: "Asked at check-in if my barcode was ok to use bc I did not receive an automated email for return check-in, she said "Let me see, yes that's good, but hurry up because you have 40min before your plane departs". Low and behold, security said my barcode was not valid and had to run back and forth to get a new one printed. What made it worse was the check in clerk wanted to argue her point and there was only one flight attendant available and boarding closed 12min prior to departure, I was standing and waiving through the gates window trying to get all the flight attendants attention. I could have made it but missed my flight. Horrible experience!"
Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"
Pros: "Free chat onboard"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."
Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."
Cons: "Plane was very loud"
Pros: "everyone was pleasant and accommodating."
Cons: "again neither me or my seatmates[not travel companion] could not get the inflight network to work. my seatmate was traveling with a child and that left her frustrated."
Cons: "Baggage crew was so careless in loading bags onto plane. There were two bags and a car seat that were thrown and missed the conveyer belt and fell off the side."
Pros: "Free small snacks and regular drink runs. Very good hospitality."
Pros: "It was a cheap flight and the service was better than I've learned to expect from airlines that fly into Mexico. It may be I'm seeing things that are not there, but I believe most airlines currently traveling into Mexico treat their passengers like cattle. I rank Alaska on the positive high end of this, but it could do better."
Cons: "passengers were treated like cattle."
Pros: "This was one of the newer 737s I've gluten on recently, and it definitely makes a difference. Spacious seats and comfortable headrests made this a very pleasant trip, not to mention power outlets. Also the coffee was nice and hot."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Plane was very cold"
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The new interiors on the 737-NG aircraft are fitted with vents which are pretty inadequate. They don't open very wide and then don't provide very much air at all. Headrests on window seats in the exit row don't move. No free in-flight entertainment. Since there's relatively no equipment cost to airline to allow streaming to personal devices, this is pretty disappointing."
Pros: "Convenient and flights are short from ANC to FAI"
Cons: "Q400 seats are very narrow, seat pitch is too short (unless you are in an exit row), very little overhead space. It's a short flight, but it really makes those narrow 737 seats feel like first class."
Pros: "It was decent"
Cons: "The crew didn't offer me a beverage. There was no blankets."
Pros: "The plane was actually pretty nice and the crew ok"
Cons: "Original Flight sfo-seattle was delayed. Had to pay $25 to change to an earlier flight to make my connection! Note the that earlier flight was also 2+ hours late!"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and friendly."
Cons: "Need free movies"
Pros: "I liked having the entertainment system on the Minneapolis to Atlanta flight. I was able to watch the football game which made the time go by more quickly. The crew was excellent and provided good service even though I did not have any food or drinks."
Cons: "I am always dismayed by how long it takes to get passengers on the plane. Once on the plane, it also takes too much time to get passengers seated. Passengers continue to bring luggage which takes up too much space in the overhead bins and have more items than permitted. I do not bring luggage on board because it is too hard to find space and it holds up the boarding process."
Cons: "Flight was late for one hour"
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"
Pros: "Only selection of movies but that’s all!"
Cons: "Flight delay could have been explained better, boarded the plane and sat in for about 2:30 min, crew could have been more proactive but NO! Food especially thinking this dinner time in business class fare very small portions! Wi-Fi paid for full flight but it was turned off in the mid of the air!"
Pros: "Great comfortable seats"
Cons: "Crowds in airport"
Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Always available if needed"
Cons: "Food was just ok. Could have a little more movie selection"
Cons: "No usb or electric socket to charge mobile phones Landing was very rough"
Pros: "Good landing, great service."
Pros: "Food quality was above average (compared to Air France, for instance). On-board entertainment system offers a lot of movies or tv series, assuming it is in working order."
Cons: "A negative point for the entertainment system is the variety of movies - all US based movies. Other airlines mix in foreign movies, Delta is squarely US centric. Also, the entertainment system didn't properly work until rebooted, but flight attendants could not be contacted to get this done timely (cannot call attendants through a non-functional screen). Another concern is the noise level of the cabin, but it's mostly due to passengers."
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"
Pros: "They were very helpful. I hurt my leg and am on crutches and they were extremely helpful to get me to my next gate in Minneapolis and to get me to baggage claim in Philadelphia."
Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"
Pros: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "The staff was very professional, courteous, and accommodating. Having the Delta app made everything relatively easy for me with the up to minutes updates on flight and baggage status."
Cons: "I didn't like the long lay over, considering I found a gnetleman that was also going to BWI, but he was given an earlier flight. I am grateful for being able to get a cheap ticket for same day booking, but the gentleman also booked the same day as me."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "Quick and everyone was friendly"
Pros: "Jamaica security and boarding, despite a crowded airport and gate, was very quick. Appeared chaotic but was friendly and efficient. Boarding was orderly and efficient. Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."
Cons: "Only one offer of beverage on 3 hr. flight. "Food" at dinner time was chips or crackers. Arriving 1/2 hour early we sat on tarmac for 50 minutes before reaching gate. 20+ minute walk to customs, 30 minute line."
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Cons: "Partner site said it was Aeromexico. First flight was delta so different check bag policy for internal flight that cost me $80. Screw you all"
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Didn’t know that I didn’t have a window on the row I was on"
Pros: "Anna from South Africa was funny, and super accomidatinf"
Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"
Pros: "It was a great flight."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Pros: "Clean plan and efficient boarding procedure."
Cons: "Horrible delay. Took off almost two hours post originally scheduled time."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Pros: "Good flight. Typical air travel"
Pros: "The Economy seats with added space Plenty of space Cheerful crew"
Pros: "Smooth. Great Staff"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time"
Pros: "Nice crew, normal seats, TV etc. They were very apologetic about the delays. They gave multiple updates and came around with water/snacks"
Cons: "The plane was delayed to wait for passengers from another flight. We waited for almost two hours. After that there was multiple technical difficulties- loading the bags, closing the door, refueling...the list goes on. We ended up taking off almost four hours late."
Pros: "exit row - good leg room; new storage compartment was good."
Cons: "New seats = hard; got uncomfortable after about an hour. Wish there was a way to disconnect folding tray from behind seat - person behind kept dropping it, drumming on it, open it and closing it - really a nuisance."
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Pros: "Window seat"
Pros: "People, your people were fantastic!"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay no explanation"
Cons: "Gate agent was cold rude and incompetent"
Cons: "Some of the crew had an attitude and the purchased WiFi did not work"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helped me with what I needed."
Cons: "Leg room. But you know that"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early!"
Cons: "When checking in, it indicated a smaller plane. I was not in a window seat and I had to check my baggage (and wait at the baggage terminal)."
Cons: "If delay to much pls let customer out of plane"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and not very attentive. Although one person did get sick and caused the crew to be shorthanded that’s no excuse to not smile and be friendly. I wanted to throw away some beverage cups and no flight attendant came through for almost an hour. The food sucked."
Cons: "Much better food, even though we were economy class the food could have been better. Also, I was told and researched that there would be an AC outlet at my seat and all there was is a USB port. I rented a portable CPAP machine and couldn’t use it. Cost me $120."
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Umm, maybe a tv in the headrest"
Cons: "I have changed flights. Been delayed 5 times now. And still haven’t left the USA."
Pros: "great trip"
Cons: "In a period of 20 minutes in the hour before boarding there were three gate changes. The last one was a change of terminal and gate. You have been doing this for years and you should know how to do this already."
Pros: "Why do I get asked 3x times if I am ready able to assist with a verbal yes. I get asked at baggage check in, again when I board by gate agent, and then again by flight crew. Is this FAA regulations to ask 3 Times?"
Cons: "Ask me 1 time"
Cons: "Smelling booze on obviously wasted passenger who invaded my personal space multiple times."
Pros: "Fast quick flight. Bags out quickly."
Cons: "Seats are far too cramped for someone who is 6,2."
Cons: "Seats were small"
Pros: "I was able to choose a seat in Cabin with more leg room and complimentary alcoholic beverage."
Cons: "It was late going to Chicago and late returning to NYC. There were no crackers. I don't like pretzels. The ONLY reason I flew American is because my company paid for it. I absolutely hate LaGuardia. It has a bad spirit."
Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"
Pros: "It got me here."
Cons: "Apparently codeshare purchases are non upgradable, so my airline status was irrelevant."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Cons: "I had to run to make it to my connection because the flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "Friendly Crew."
Cons: "The food that was served."
Cons: "Delay in Fresno"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "They put so many people (over 200) in a room by the gate to wait for boarding. There were no bathrooms there to use."
Cons: "Seats and food"
Cons: "Very very cramped"
Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat, so my boyfriend and I had to fly cross country on opposite ends of the plane. There was a stewardess named Karen who was so rude. She clearly was not happy to be working, never smiled, and banged on the bathroom door while I was peeing because I was "not allowed to miss the instruction video." Had I not seen it a few hours earlier, I would have waited to use the restroom. Good thing they showed the same video three times in a row."
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Slow set up of gateway upon arrival"
Pros: "Food and a/c"
Cons: "Two hours delay."
Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"
Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."
Cons: "Big lines for the kiosks to print out the boarding pass, after that another line to drop off the lauggages. We left late. Horrible food. Uncomfortable sits. NO INDIVIDUAL TV."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "The crew for the most part were friendly. Boarding was easy enough"
Cons: "The one thing that stood out was that the flight attendants weren't offering water outside of the regular beverage service. I've never been on an international flight where there wasn't almost a constant flow of water. I was so parched after 8 hours. It seemed unusual. Also the seats are so small. I'm only 130 and 5'7" and it was a tough ride"
Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."
Pros: "crew is rude!"
Pros: "....it all worked as planned.."
Cons: ".... nothing .... it all worked as planned ..."
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, timing was superb,"
Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."
Cons: "Food was expensive and not well put together."
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Cons: "The flight movies and entertainment were down the whole flights but only for our seats. Which on an international flight was the pits."
