Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was very service oriented. Appreciate their constant offer of water."
Cons: "Someone should know how to make your entertainment system run on iPAD. I preloaded your system before boarding. However, even though I can access your menu, I can not play any movies. The crew tried to help but no one could figure out how to make it work on iPad."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No screens on the plane...for a 6 hour flight. Additionally, the seats are close together."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive at checkin and gate. They were ready for me before I was ready for them! Flight crew was also great. Seats comfortable, plenty if legroom in coach."
Cons: "Everything was excellent - but having not flown Alaska, I was expecting something exceptional. Top rated US carrier, and inheritor of the Virgin America legacy, I expected something more. I've flown VA, and it was an exceptional experience."
Pros: "Always great crew on Alaskan, but this is the first time the pilot updated us constantly and I loved it."
Cons: "Better planning on Reagan and Seatac airports with their air traffic control."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Better snack options for premium members"
Cons: "Flight was missed due to late departure. Customer service at the counter was lacking. No apology for the delay. Next available flight was next morning.

Pros: "The leg room is great, seats are comfortable, everyone is super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Having a seat before everyone else boards"
Pros: "Crew and actual flight were good."
Cons: "When booking the flight, the only seats that showed as available were premium seats that I had to pay $150 extra for each way. Upon boarding I saw that there were many, many seats available so I spent that money for nothing."
Pros: "Being on time, then early! A clean plane, and boarding from the rear first. An airline has finally caught a clue on boarding the rear of the plane and window seats first! Hello!"
Pros: "Entertainment, modern aircraft"
Cons: "Rude and uninterested flight crew, undisclosed bulkhead mid aircraft"
Pros: "Very nice and cheerful folk. The baggage fee for what I could have carried on was waived. Cabin service was attentive. The flight was on time, and my luggage arrived."
Cons: "The child behind me ... but that is not the fault of Alaskan Air."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Cons: "Nothing. Alaska is by far my favorite airline! Virgin is my second favorite. They are now joined. Perfect!"
Pros: "quick boarding process"
Cons: "good options for entertainment"
Cons: "I wasn't able to fly Alaska Airlines due to storm in Washington DC. My first flight American Airlines from Charlotte to Washington DC was cancelled. The second flight Alaska Airlines from Washington DC to Portland was delayed, but I never flew. I got a direct flight from American Airlines from Charlotte to Portland instead."
Pros: "On a short flight the flight crew did a fine job."
Cons: "Well, my lost carry on on Portland was still lost in Bellingham. I must say Rick did a good job of helping with my claim in Bellingham and the bag showed up 12 hours later."
Pros: "The food was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Didn't realize the seat I selected didn't recline because it was in front of the exit row. I sat straight up for 5 hours and 10 minutes. I wish I would have known this at the time of booking. That was extremely uncomfortable. When I asked the crew about it, they said "yup sorry year seat doesn't recline because it's near an exit row." No apologies, no concern, no trying to find an alternate solution. I couldn't figure out how to work the Wi-Fi and so I asked a crew member and she was less concerned about trying to help me figure it out and was more concerned about trying to get me to rent an iPad."

Pros: "George Yoo"

Pros: "Flight arrived in time to make connecting flight easy tomake."
Cons: "Sat for nearly an hour upon boarding while "problems with caterer" were worked out. It is already a long time to sit in a restricted space. Please don't make it even longer. Also, socializing by attendants at rear of aircraft made any chance of napping impossible."
Cons: "Flight delayed 10 hours due to mechanical problems. They said they could not rebook passengers on alt flights because all flights were booked. Yet when I went on kayak they were still selling seats on these fflghts. This was unconscionable before a long five hour flight to make a 70 year old women sit in an airport with 290 others when their were other options or were the airlines just overselling again so they could boot people off the plane?"

Pros: "I like everything the attendance flight everything"
Pros: "Very friendly"

Pros: "Power outlet at each seat."
Cons: "Narrow aisle. Had to rent device to see movies."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and attentive. They were delightful."

Pros: "The flight arrived early."
Cons: "It was too cold."
Pros: "Kind crew."
Pros: "Seat cramped"
Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"
Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."

Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
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 Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Pros: "The flight between WA D.C. And Phoenix went well. Very nice staff, orderly onboarding"
Cons: "Arrived in Phoenix and hurried to my next gate for the flight to Palm Springs only to discover a delay in the flight. No marguees were updated, no explanation just the plane had not arrived. Soon after we were told of a gate change, the marquee then said the flight would not arrive until 11 pm it is a one hour flight, so we actually arrived at 10 pm."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."
Pros: "The head flight attendant was fantastic. I apologize I don't have her name, but she was courteous, which is a rarity these days when flying commercial."
Cons: "The boarding process was incredibly disorganized. There is poor spacing between the seating groups, which encourages a mob to stand right at the podium and rush the gate. Unlike United, which uses gates to separate Boarding Groups, American just leaves it to be a free-for-all that actually slows down the process and frustrates customers before anyone has boarded."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good seats"
Cons: "No food, beverage service was mediocre, and there was no on-board entertainment"
Cons: "DC Gate agent was rude upon boarding. DC plane was very small and lacked overhead cabin room."
Pros: "Due to inclement weather, which I know is beyond the control of AA, I spent 10 frustrating hours of delayed, but then ultimately canceled flights. Followed by long customer service lines and "sorry buts" to flat out lying from gate attendants and stewardesses. I know most of the airlines do it but now that you are making a profit I think it's time to give back to the customer when weather complicates their travel. But most of all, please just give us the decency of the truth -- it sucks-- but we can handle it. Yes there will always be those out of control customers that scream and yell, but most of us, as what I witnessed-when it all breaks down--are chill and understand. Complimentary drinks. Coupons for a later flight. All hands on deck with crazy knowledge of the routes you fly to ease rebooking. I realize we as a people can't stop flying, whether it be for work or family needs, but you can't keep treating us like stupid cattle. Thank you whoever reads this for letting me express my frustration and thank you AA ultimately for getting me to my destination."
Pros: "Cancelled due to weather. Still stuck in DC. American's communication is AWFUL!"
Cons: "Jammed on bus to go to plane and no notice of what was going on. Passengers jammed into bus with no updates. AA sucks."
Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"
Pros: "From start to finish the flight faced problems: unscheduled stop for refueling, change in planes for mechanical problems, emergency medical intervention, and more. Yet at every stage the flight crew and gate staff did an outstanding job communicating and seeking to alleviate passenger woes. With delays, we missed connections, and yet AA worked wonderfully to find alternatives. At the end of the day, we arrived at our destination, and even our luggage made the trip successfully! Wonderful courtesy, adaptability, and determination to serve. Thank you."
Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "crew was nice."
Cons: "plane was small and had no room for carry on flight was late."
Pros: "I was able to grab 4D on both flights using my Alaskan Airlines MVP status. It is a Main Cabin extra seat - but it has a TON of leg room. More than first class it looked like."
Pros: "Your sirvey is not well designed; there was no food or entertainment on the flight yet we must give it a rating?"
Cons: "Two hours late"
