Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No seat-back entertainment on a long flight is not ok. If there was warning about that during the booking process, it was too subtle and I missed it. It was an unpleasant surprise. Also, the seats are just so stiff and uncomfortable. If this was a 3-hour flight, fine. But nearly 6 hours, no."
Cons: "Didn’t like sitting on tarmac for 40 minutes after arriving. Got very warm and uncomfortable to breathe"
Cons: "Missed 2nd leg of flight due to 1st leg not taking off at correct time due to improper scheduling on Alaska’s part at SeaTac airport. Forced to take next flight the following day without any accommodation for my wife and 3 year old son. Was told by Alaska service agent to just sleep at the USO."
Pros: "Very good attention in general"
Cons: "Improve the seats"
Pros: "My seat was so wonderful and even the people in my row too. I surly do not like a middle seat... but location of row 6 and everyone in the flight crew made me feel so so comfortable I was even able to get some sleep"
Cons: "I love you guys and I am looking forward to my next trip and adventure with Alaska Airlines!!!!!"
Pros: "All the ladies (and the pilot) who helped us were so lovely and helpful! Thanks for such a wonderful experience ❤"
Pros: "Staff was professional but not warm. Boarding was easy and the timing was great."
Cons: "Cramped. Absolutely no leg room and I’m 5 foot 2 inches. The bathroom filled up so no one could use the facilities for the last hour of flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "The flight took the blink of an eye."
Cons: "I would have liked to have been woken for the food dispersal and being over 6 feet O cannot say enough about adequate leg room or lack thereof."
Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."
Cons: "It was about half the price of other major airlines. So naturally I expected the worst. Turns out it was better than many airlines I flown in the past."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Our flight was changed to a later time. I selected new seTs but when we check in our seats had been changed and we were not sitting together. The internet was difficult to navigate For more than just my husband and myself"
Pros: "Everything, overall an amazing experience."
Pros: "I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."

Cons: "unprofessional workers who gossip about other workers and customers, dirty plane, no free food, and no aloha spirit."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I upgraded seats for $99. Compared to Hawaiian Airlines upgrade for $80 return trip from Honolulu to Oakland, Alaskan was disappointing. One older stewardess with long blk/grey hair and glasses was rude. I asked her a question and she told me to sit down. I was waiting to use the restroom. Must have been a bad day for her. We were fed on Hawaiian which was a treat."
Pros: "The flight was ontime and the crew was great. Nice app onboard for watching movies...free!"
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but I am a little over weight and the flight was tight."
Pros: "it was a very pleasant flight .everything was smooth except for a little delayed on the way back looking forward of flying with Alaska Airlines .a airlines"
Pros: "The staff were very patient with very large group traveling. The staff were very cautious of them not burning themselves with the coffee. If when having large groups of non-speaking passengers, place their group leaders separate so that they can help translate for the crew and then not have to take so long to help them out."
Cons: "Allergies to dogs and there was a dog on the plane. Couldn’t stop sneezing and had an aweful time trying to pressurize my ears from allergies. Very difficult when air circulation can’t be controlled at seat. It was freezing and no way to close vent or stop air from hitting directly onto me."

Cons: "I would like to have as much room in coach as first class, but that won't happen. :)"
Cons: "A long line for the aft toilets, and crew told us we couldn't use the empty toilet at the front because first class passengers pay more. This was TWO attendants making people wait when at least one other toilet was open up front on a five hour flight. Is this even legal? Very disappointed in lack of consideration for health and comfort. Thanks for listening."
Pros: "boarding and disembark were good for premier as was seating comfort"
Cons: "There is no substitute for a wide body aircraft"
Pros: "I loved that on the way home to Hawaii there was an option to get an app to access free movies and TV shows. It was awesome!"

Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "Friendly and courteous attendants"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"

Pros: "I love that the plane has extra space available between seats (with no one in the middle) & that everyone was encouraged to keep their mask on at all times."
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."
Pros: "I like flying with Delta, it's just I was not feeling well and our flight got delayed and delayed and delayed. We finally made it on and the extra comfort was great"
Cons: "The food selections not so great. The sandwich was hard. Could use more options."
Cons: "Crew was abrasive and put off by people asking for service. Monitors had to be rebooted 3 times. Ran out of water and snacks."
Pros: "Boarding process need to be improved. Seat assignment is horrible"
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "Clean first class seat."
Cons: "My connecting flight, and the the flight not being delayed the night before."
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"

Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "They have to improve the boarding process a bit."
Pros: "crew found me an outlet for laptop"
Cons: "The pork dinner meal option was burnt … al the way through."
Pros: "Appreciated stewardess comping wine because my husband and I couldn't sit together"

Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable for such a long flight"
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew and flight"
Cons: "Price for food and number of bathroom available"
Cons: "Rapid City, I could check my BAG through to PDX."
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Gal at the gate was most helpful. She corrected my boarding pass to zone 1 and put us in exit row. I have sat there before but it was really roomy although the seat seemed less comfy."
Cons: "Plane was much smaller than what I usually fly to Hawaii but the roomy exit seat made up for that. Downside was the screen was small so hard to see."
Pros: "Speedy boarding and deplaning."
Cons: "The gate agent appeared annoyed when I requested a seat change a couple of hours prior to boarding. She didn’t offer assistance or an explanation. Just looked at me like ‘ in your dreams’. And flight attendants should really practice smiling more. Snacks offered on 5.5 hour flight we’re pretty pathetic."

Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."

Pros: "Let on time and arrived 30 mins EARLY."
Cons: "Had to pay for meal despite length if flight."

Cons: "Even with "Comfort +" the seats are horrible."

Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."

Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."
Cons: "Air conditioner was not working properly and we were delayed over 3 hours waiting on the plane at the gate and tarmac. Then they had to de-ice the plane which added more delay. Lost too much time that could have been spent in sunny, warm Hawaii."
Pros: "The plane was modern with good entertainment options. Overhead storage was ample."
Pros: "entertainment options are great. The flights are plentiful, so lots of options."
Cons: "No options for vegans on 10 hour flight!! Shame on you!! Our needs should be considered."

Hands down Delta IS THE BEST, there nothing better then having Free movies to pass the time, from TV to HBO and SHOWTIME and Current Movies in the theaters TODAY music, games, etc even free headsets any eye cover to rest ALL FOR FREE Delta isn't so worried about charging for eveything, a happy traveler is a repeat traveler, that is DELTAS GOAL Happy repeat travelers I voiced my displeasure with Hawaiian after finding out on my Day flight over I get charged $10 for blanket n pillow and free ( bad ) meal. Then on red eye home it's free blanket and no food, I can bring my own better food, and blanket which I do, but to charge for entertainment is the worst thing ever, AND EVEN FOR SIMPLE MUSIC WAS A CHARGE, SUCH POOR SERVICE Delta hands down IS CUSTOMER SERVICE ORIENTED PERIOD DELTA DELTA DELTA I'M FOREVER YOUR HAPPY TRAVELER,"

Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."

Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Duck tape holding up oxygen mask compartment 1 row behind us. Cabin entertainment monitor was missing a 3rd of the display and only one headphone jack in our row worked. Thankfully, we brought a splitter. We will never book an American Flight again. Aer Lingus was STELLAR. No comparison."

Pros: "The crew was very welcoming."
Cons: "The weather caused a bit of turbulence."

Cons: "Being held inside the plane for a total of 5:30 hours before taking off. Even if there were several concurring factors, it it necessary to find a better procedure in order to avoid keeping passangers inside a plane with the prospect of taking off in the next half hour repeated every half hour! For the ones of us traveling with children it is even worse, and becomes a real nightmare."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Cons: "delayed, missed connection, no assistance automatically booked for 24 hrs later connection, no accomodation travelling with infant, had to spend the night (total >12 hrs) at security post, no AA employee available to assist, horrible customer service actually AA does not know if there is such a thing as customer service exist!"

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Pros: "Watch movies, charge your phone, play games, and snack away after meals. Had an excellent flight. I have to say that the crew made the experience very relaxing.

Cons: "It would be nice to get complimentary wifi access, even if it's for a total usage time of 30 minutes, to text/email loved ones about departure and arrival. Still have good access options."
Cons: "The controls for the entertainment were hard to figure out. To many options and multi use buttons."
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."

Pros: "Free military upgrade was awesome. Thank you AA. In flight entertainment was good because it was free. And thank you for the USB outlet, now if you could just do that for ALL domestic flights i would never fly anything other than AA. Also, my connection was late and AA held the flight for me and 11 others to our final destination to Honolulu. Thank you American Airlines."
Cons: "Some of the flight crew were awesome, and some reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. Overall good but not great. Nothing to really complain about though."
Pros: "Everything about the 787. Very comfortable and pleasant"
Cons: "Again, United is not enforcing its own COVID restrictions. That’s gotta stop"
Cons: "Stewardess was mean when I asked for a mask"
Cons: "Service could be better. Bathrooms need to be clean periodically. Your cut back of restrooms - sucks. I guess the offer of free drinks and a small snack is all United can offer for the price we pay."
Pros: "If the food is offered free as part of the fare. The food is roughly $12.00 or whatever price. That should have been added to the fare we are paying for the flught."
Cons: "Our BOS-SFO flight was delayed several times that would have caused us to miss our connection to HNL. Instead we were diverted to IAH where we spent the night at our expense. We are still in Houston awaiting our return to HNL. Too long a delay."
Pros: "It was just okay"
Cons: "Nothing just flying in a smaller plane"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Airfare price. Friends were able to get a better deal connecting through Japan."
Cons: "The food options are poor at best and it's really sad that they don't offer anything for free. My ticket wasn't cheap so I can't imagine they're saving me money on my ticket by not offering better food on that long of a flight."
Cons: "The seating, being separated from my wife!"
Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"
Pros: "All the crews are very friendly,service was great!"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."
Cons: "didn't know how to download the entertainment system"

Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."
Pros: "It was not overbooked and had plenty of space"
Cons: "Wifi and food prices were a little too expensive"
Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"
Pros: "Free drinks. Soft ones of course, but not something you can count on anymore. And very pleasant accommodating staff. Also very on time."
Pros: "Everything was great except for entertainment."
Cons: "Wi-fi wouldn't work on my phone or iPad. What an extremely long trip with no entertainment. Hopefully it works in the flight baCj home :/"
Cons: "Simply, EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly. Food was just ok. I had the omelet which was mostly cheese. You had access to the entertainment only if you had your own system that would tie into the United app. For most people, it was probably not a big deal but I had to download the app before taking off (they did warn you numerous times) and if you didn't do it, you were out of luck."
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Pros: "Flight was okay"

Cons: "No free meals"

Pros: "Delayed 3hrs due to awaiting the aircraft. Was given the option to change flights with no more flights to HNL tonight"
Pros: "It was on time, the landing was beautiful!!"
Cons: "Selection of snacks were not appealing."
Cons: "having to sit in an aircraft for more than 2 and a half hours after push back from the gate and unable to take-off due to a computer problem at their Chicago headquarters. If the captain knew about the problem, he should not have let passengers board so early. This flight was operated by United Airlines so Lufthansa should not get any blame for this."
Pros: "The crew was good. Direct with instructions and efficient."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, I should not have to pay extra for the little TV, when other carriers are offering this in-flight entertainment for free. Nickel and dime-ing customers does not bring loyalty. I'll be returning to flying almost exclusively on Delta."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
