Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew with a excellent personalities, nice clean plane, and just great service all around!"
Pros: "Crew is always amazing and friendly on Alaska."
Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"
Pros: "The staff is always super nice."
Cons: "The landing sucked. It seemed unnecessarily rough."
Pros: "Awesome !"
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: "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."
Cons: "Hard to get movie on second flight, stuck from first flight"
Pros: "Rented a player and watched movies. Yeah"
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."
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: "We needed wheelchair help. That was well done."
Cons: "Late late late"
Pros: "Pilot information/anoucements."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "It was fast and friendly. They took a lot of guesswork out and made us feel safe."

Pros: "Too cold"
Cons: "Stewardess hated her job so it seemed"

Pros: "Way too hot on plane without anyersonal air gens. Then it was freezing after takeoff"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Lack of infotainment, poor ventilation and air, and landing was rough."

Cons: "Need free movies"
Pros: "Checking in was easy. As long as you have your confirmation number ready you are golden!"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay for my luggage at check in was a horrible surprise. I thought one luggage check came with the price of the ticket and was included in the fare. Guess not! I had to use 75$ of my vacation money for luggage there and back!!!"
Cons: "Was unfamiliar with Seattle airport .. no one around during the wee hours in the morn when I arrived .. finally saw a worker who directed me to the Alaska airlines gate. Had to take three trains to get there, Not the fault of the airlines, just an annoying experience for me."
Cons: "Can't believe you charge for the internet!"
Pros: "Even the ground delay was handled so easily it was not a problem."
Cons: "I didn't get a blanket or pillow"
Cons: "That I am trapped in Seattle because an active volcano exploded, and now my very limited funds are being sucked away because the airline won't pay for hotel fees because " active volcano" doesn't fall under things they will pay for. I am stuck in Seattle with a service dog who I might not be able to purchase more dog food for because of hotel fees, I probably won't be able to pay for rent at home, and my flight has been changed THREE TIMES IN ONE DAY. I was supposed to leave yesterday, then I was supposed to leave 3 hours from now, and now I don't leave for another 24 hours, and will have to pay ANOTHER DAYS WORTH of hotel fees. Thank you for sending me to the poorhouse, and possibly getting me evicted from my apartment, Alaska Airlines. My service dog and I get to spend 8 hours in an airport tomorrow morning, because checkout is at 1 PM. UNLESS THE FLIGHT CHANGES AGAIN AND I HAVE TO PAY FOR ANOTHER NIGHT."

Cons: "More space:)"

Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."

Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"
Cons: "Multilpe delays"
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Cons: "Too many announcements"

Cons: "Boarding process needs fewer rounds of pre-boarding. Not because it didn't make sense but because people are ridiculous these days and just crowd around the jetway. It becomes awkward."
Pros: "I was traveling to visit my terminally ill brother so really appreciated the no hassle experience. While it was a very sad trip for me personally I had a feel good moment when they offered priority boarding to all military active or non active."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "it would be easier and faster if they started loading from the back first, this way it wouldn' t hold up the people that have seats up front and are in the way of the people that have to go to the back seats. I t' s o k for the 1st glass people to load first and parents with small children too"
Pros: "We were delayed leaving by an hour and got no updates until 30 minutes in, at which point we were advised "paperwork was waiting to be completed". Then when we finally arrived there was no gate for us to unboard from for at least another 20 minutes."

Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."
Pros: "The service was above and beyond expectations. Seats in economy are roomier than I'm used to. There was also many movies to choose from for in air entertainment. Food was delicious. Will fly Japan Airlines again in the future."

Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Pros: "And it was actually terrific. United employees were top shelf at every stop, on every plane. (I did seven flights total.)"
Cons: "Shitty service ,...."
Pros: "It was great!"
Cons: "Cacelled then delayed twice. United workers are also very rude. I give them a big ol"

Cons: "Custmer Service"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "New looking plane but the TVs behind all the chairs were locked without a credit card. The new chairs looked great until you sat in them. I'm 5'10" and my knees were already brushing up against the seatback in front of me. If you push the recline button on the armrest, the chair doesn't go back (of course it doesn't, the person's legs behind me are probably up against my chair anyway). Multiple people around me were also asking around if the chairs recline. I have a mild back injury and sitting up at 90 degrees the entire way was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Changed my seat to a better one"
Cons: "Plane an hour late taking off"
Pros: "More important than the trip home last Wednesday was the reason for the trip. We attended my granddaughter's wedding. Everything else was secondary. Even if the trip had been in a one wheeled barrow, it would have been good. To get to what you want which is the mechanics of the trip. The two people who attended to the aisle chair, most teams were competent. Some hadn't done many passengers so they were fumbling with the straps. I've learned that I almost alway have to ask for one at the gate where they check or issue, (what's it called, loading permits, some kind of pass, not landing pass. loading pass. I can't remember and my wife has gone to bed.) Well, they have to come up with an aisle chair because I've only got 1 1/2 legs. I always make it to the seat on the plane, but the competency of the various crews is uneen. Sorry my answer is so nonspecific but I don't remember one airline from another. Great people all, get the job done."
Cons: "Not much I don't like. They get us there That is the main thing. Sometimes when the plane stops after it has pulled away from the Jet Way, the pilot gives an explanation that I find unfulfilling, not enough details. I suppose if they explained more, other fliers would find the explanation too verbose. I can live with it. Again this is about all flights and airlines. Nothing stands out, such as, " this awful thing happened when we left San Francisco.""
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Everything was cramped- not enough space to move. They completely ran out of overhead space. Completely crazy"
Cons: "Gate attendant recommended we check bags because overheads were full, but there were multiple empty overheads when we entered. This caused us an extra delay when we landed."
Pros: "I learned to stop flying Air Canada or United affiliated partners"
Cons: "Just about everything else"

Pros: "Literally the only saving grace was an employee named David R at the Chicago desk on the morning of July 22. He helped my friend and I, calmed us down, and dos his job quickly and competently. He made me feel like a human instead of an insignificant part of the herd of cattle. Thank God for that man."
Cons: "I do not have time to fill out this box. I could write about everything shitty that happened, but then I would die typing on my phone instead of doing something amazing like bungee jumping or outrunning a grizzly bear."

Pros: "It was delayed a few minutes but they did whatever possible to get it back on schedule."
Cons: "A long layover"

Cons: "They lost my piece of luggage."
Pros: "Blankets were provided"
Cons: "There wasn't any food or entrainment for me to rate."
Cons: "The worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Could not get seat assignment 24 hrs in advance. Website said see desk. Phone call to United said pay more $ get a seat. Had to check in twice, once with bags...still no seat...wait in line again at gate for seat."

Cons: "No TV"
