Pros: "Timeliness"

Pros: "Helpful staff, very open for customer."

Pros: "The crew was very kind and friendly"

Pros: "The purpose of our trip is to be in a wedding. The suitcase may ,or may not arrive in time. I was told it would be delivered to the Costa Verde Quepos, Manuel Antonio hotel. I will be without any clothes for at least two and a half days. Please help! My cell is 209-549-6276, but I don't know if it will work while I am in Costa Rica The suitcase tag number is 10-65-88"
Cons: "I tried to print my boarding pass at home the day before the flight, with an error message "please see an Alaskan Clerk". I also tried to get my boarding pass via phone with the same error message. I also tried to go through Cathay's website, no luck. Cathays customer service is closed on Sunday, and Alaskan customer service said they cannot help me. I arrived 2 hours before my flight from SLC to LAX via Alaskan Airlines, and they were unable to print my boarding pass in time to make my flight. I waited 2 hours in line with other people also leaving at 6am, almost all of us missing our flight.... I am extremely disappointed and would like a refund for this trip. I ended up purchasing another one-way ticket to HKG, and will take the return flight home from Cathay."
Pros: "Love that you have complementary wine on short flights and chees-it's were a nice change for a snack!!"
Cons: "My flight back from Salt Lake City has a lot less friendly staff"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful from the moment I walked in to helping me check in to discreetly giving me a seat belt extender. The airplane was comfortable with plenty of space for a coach seat. I really had a good experience."
Cons: "I have no complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "It was the worst flight experience i have ever had!!. Our flight was scheduled for departure at 845 pm July 5th, and did not end up departing until 203 am!! We had to sit in the airport for 8 hrs, i barely had any money left and had to use it on food and snaks while we waited. The staff was very rude. I had asked them different times what was going on, because the time of departure kept changing and what were my kids and i supposrd to do, and they just said sorry and dont know what to tell you. After spending my last bit of money on food for my kids and i, I was told by another passanger that the airlines were giving vouchers for food. They never once in the 4 or 5 times i talked to them, offered or told me about the vouchers. It was a terrible experience all around!! We landed in portland at 330 am and had to still drive 3 hours home. we didnt get home until 630am. Ridiculous!!!! I was and am still very upset about the whole thing. Also the staff that was so rude in SaltLake City, every time i would see a concerned or upset passenger go up to talk to them, as soon as they would walk off the staff was over there giggling with each other about it. So Very RUDE!!! Another passanger said that Alaskan Airlines has habbit of having problems with delays . If this is the kind of experience that comes with flying Alaskan, then i will never fly with them again.!!! or go througj expedia"
Cons: "The Stewarts were also irritated with the screaming kids. Could not hear the emergency information. There should be a better method to entertaining or sitting those with children together I want to blame it on the situation however I need state that the flight attendants were rude while passing out the complimentary food."
Cons: "On the return flight it was cancelled and they put us in a flea bag hotel and I have written Alaska and requested a FULL ROUND TRIP TO COSTA RICA and they haven't had the courtesy of responding. I wrote Wayne Newton 2x. b"
Pros: "The free beverages and snack"
Cons: "That our flight got canceled the night before"
Pros: "The bisquit cookies."
Cons: "The staff weren't that friendly! Gone are the helpful employees! My daughter's seat wouldn't go back and they did nothing to accommodate her! LAME! Not overly friendly, need to take notes from JetBlue!"
Pros: "clean modern airplane, polite air crew, easy to plug-in and charge tablet while in use during flight."
Cons: "food was overpriced meh."
Pros: "all announcements sounded muffled and difficult to understand both on the plane and by women making the announcements just prior to boarding. I upgraded to first class on the flight back to SLC so the return trip was more enjoyable. Non stop is the only way to fly if at all possible. Please have your people speak into their microphones slowly, clearly, and loud enough for their instruction and/or information can be easily understood."
Cons: "you asked about the quality of the "food"; please, crackers for food? The flight was delayed for an hour and then we are served crackers! I have flown both Southwest and Alaska; Alaska is by far the better airline even though your flight attendants act bored out of their mind. In their defense however, dealing with 150+ people in a confined space has got to be just shy of having a frequent nightmare. I will definitely fly with Alaska again."
Pros: "Good trip with good Ser vice."
Pros: "My return flight was precisely on time, boarding was efficient and the offer for a free chat service while in the air (though I didn't use it) was a nice touch."
Cons: "While my flight was short and snacks weren't necessary, I was pretty underwhelmed by the snack offerings."
Pros: "Really like the E175."
Pros: "The bump to first class was awesome as was the crew."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "My seat was in the premium class somehow and I loved it. Perfect timing with boarding and seating. The crew was very attentive and kind."
Cons: "Entertainment wasn't available."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late. I wasted an entire day sitting in the airport. You knew that the flight was late hours in advance and should have texted or emailed me to say as much. Instead, i checked in on time, and within 10 minutes we went from 'On Time' to four hours late due to equipment and crew. Very inconsiderate and unappreciated to your customer. The flight should have been free after such an inconsiderate gesture on your part. Instead, you send me a gift certificate that obligates me to spend more money with you in order to redeem it, and then within a certain period of time. If I have choice in the future, I'll lean toward a different airline than yours. You clearly do not value my time nor my business."
Pros: "Will try to avoid Alaskan airline at all cost"
Cons: "They forced me to take my luggage in San Francisco. My flight was to HK. I bought that as one ticket with transfers and they treat my Asian travel as a separate ticket even though it was suppose to be as one. Very disappointed. At the gate in SLC lady harassed me about my passport bag on my neck. Something wrong with their heads! How about harassing passengers if they have hats or coats?"
Cons: "Having to walk up 3 flights of stairs from the plane to the arrival terminal."
Pros: "Pretty standard Alaska Airlines flight. Crew was friendly, boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "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: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "It was a very long flight, but no meal or entertainment was provided. On other airlines I've flown in the past, these things were included on international flights."
Pros: "inexpensive flight"
Cons: "Although flight was full and too many carryon bags they wouldnt do skycheck (gate check) except for those with status. REALLY!?!?"
Pros: "Was able to upgrade to first class when checking in online. Wonderful"
Pros: "How smooth the ride was. It arrived early."
Cons: "They counted my small purse as a bag. Told me to put my purse inside my backpack then it would be considered 2 bags instead of 3. The flight attendant wasnt clear at all. Did not understand a word. All the flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "When we arrived at the airport there was a long line that was not moving. We were afraid we would miss the flight. We spoke with an Alaska airline representative and they moved us and anyone on our flight to the front of the line to make sure we didn't miss our flight."
Cons: "That there was a long line to check in"
Pros: "Air circulation"
Cons: "Middle seat and space"
Pros: "The price was right, so I chose this airline I'd never been on. Let me tell you, it was the finest flying experience I've ever had. I wish they would fly everywhere, because then we'd be done with the brutal shafting Delta and American and even United dishes out on the regular. Comfortable, friendly, accommodating (usb and AC ports on every seatback), and laid-back, it was perfect. I mean, perfect. AND we got there early."
Cons: "I didn't like sitting there and comparing them to all the other airlines I've ever flown with, because Alaska puts everyone else to shame. It was a positively joyous experience."
Pros: "Flight was on time and staff very courteous."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "When I had to change a flight on Alaska, because of a delayed flight on another airline, the customer service rep from Alaska was unbelievably helpful. Even after I had to hang up mid-conversation to board another plane, she arranged new flights and refunded me the money I had spent on an upgrade for the earlier flight. First class treatment!"

Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Cons: "The television visual for my row died about half an hour into the flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Cons: "Delayed by over 2 hours"

Cons: "My seat did move move - and it was very stiff. Not very comfortable for my neck. It was difficult to rest the entire flight."
Cons: "Flight was two hours late. Man was too large for his seat so he lifted up the seat divider and sat in my seat as well. Do you have any policies for overweight people that don’t fit in their seat and want to use others by lifting up the seat divider?"
Pros: "Easy boarding and polite crew. Smooth flight all around."
Pros: "Although it was stormy there was very little turbulence and the flight was smooth overall. The staff was great and made sure to come by fast."

Pros: "The person (Jorge at Salt Lake City, Utah airport) who checked us in so polite and kind he is a genuine person who cares about customer service he made my day - Thank you"
Cons: "The 1 hour delay, no reason given. People boarding when they should not have i.e., call for people with disabilities and bunch of people without a disability boarded; call for families with children and those with bigger kids (not one child under 2) boarded. What is the purpose of groups if it is not honored."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Was forced to check a carry-on bag at the gate because there was “no room in the overhead storage space”. After boarding it became clear that here was plenty of room in the overhead storage.

Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold.

Pros: "fine"
Cons: "no issues. all fine."
Pros: "The most was the attention of the flight attendant and how fast and save we landed. Good vibes"

Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone!

Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."

Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."

Absolutely loved the flight crew they were really good and nice. First time flying first class and they kept offering us more items. Only thing that made me uncomfortable was the couple next to me who used their hospitality as an excuse to not wear their mask for 2 out of the 2hrs and 13mins we were on the plane. Also the fact they were making their own drinks. Thankfully they were being unruly. But still very disrespectful.

FLight crew was friendly, efficient and informative!

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Extremely late
