Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "I like to fly again with SingaporeAir. Thank you for you amazing service. Excelent job."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly yet they give you your space. I know there is no personal space in an aircraft however it felt like it. Great job."
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew."
Cons: "PA system was awful when the captain spoke. It was very muffled and barely audible. If there had been an emergency it would have been impossible to get instructions from the captain. This is a great safety concern."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. Comfortable seats & good entertainment, & we arrived early."
Cons: "I didn’t have food so I can’t rate it. Also, a lot of crying babies, children. Otherwise it was a comfortable flight."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very slow checkin. No urgency. Boarding pass machines were broken so everyone had to wait in line and struggled to make flight."
Cons: "When Alaska Airline counter opened up at BWI Airport at 2:30pm this afternoon, they absolutely ignored those customers in line. The customer service lacked service. This is Not what AA is noted for for. Supervisors need to make sure their staff is ready to greet customers standing in line and process them promptly."
Pros: "Excellent service and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "The fact that if you didn’t pay for a seat you had to wait until everyone else boards then you can get a seat. Also if they could have told you to download Gogo app when we first get on the plane."
Pros: "Direct flight, seat next to me was empty so had a little room to spead out."
Cons: "Bad weather delayed the flight by 2 hours, bumpy the last half. flight attendent talked too much gave me a headache!"
Pros: "Getting my bags quick was definitely the highlight f the trip"
Pros: "All done right. They know how to do airline!"
Pros: "We loved that the boarding was so easy because we had assigned seats. Everything went smoothly and we were able to leave earlier than planned because we were ready. That was nice. The pilot was great."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, arrogant, and didn’t do their job well. They stayed in the back texting the entire flight instead of attending to people and when someone asked for water they acted like it was a man joe nuisance. It was very off-putting."
Pros: "No hidden charges, flight entertainment, sensible boarding process, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not much to say. I'm tall and usually fly economy/coach so leg room is limited."
Pros: "Wi-Fi, power, smiles from the team, and overall it was great"
Cons: "Not having a first class seat."
Pros: "Left early, arrived early, check in process was easy, boarding convenient."
Cons: "Cabin was too bright for a red-eye flight, so I couldn't really sleep"
Pros: "Liked free WiFi!"
Cons: "Switching from Alaskan Air to Hawaiian Air in San Diego is near impossible. I got off at 9:25am and had to run out of the airport and down to another terminal, go through security again and run to gate 51 from gate 10. It is near impossible for someone who can’t sprint. I was the last one to board. Lost my window seat and luggage didn’t make it. In Honolulu I found out luggage hasn’t made it for at least three other couples flying out of BWI with these connections. This combo should not be offered when people select flights."
Pros: "Excellent crew and gate staff, super friendly, accommodating, and patient."
Cons: "Lack of seatback IFE is a serious competitive disadvantage over Delta and others, particularly for coast-to-coast routes. Economy seat cushions are thin and wear you out on a transcontinental flight. And storage is extremely limited and inflexible given the hard plastic back of the seats and the barely-there netted space for personal items."
Pros: "Customer service was superior."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Everything about the flight, from boarding to deplaning."
Cons: "The menu could use an upgrade but that’s the only thing bad I could say..."
Cons: "Long time ago coming home from AK and getting a little box of pizza and then an ice cream bar.. cute"
Pros: "I take this flight about 30 times a year and I love it."
Cons: "I do not like teachers and people that work for the hospital complaining about people that live in Bethel."
Pros: "plane was delayed 4 hours how ever alaska airlines dealt with the is very well! Meal voucher AND $125 credit for future travel!! will def. fly with Alaska next flight!"
Cons: "If you want to buy a hot meal don't sit past row 15 as they run out. Who runs out of food for purchase? Apparently this isn't a new issue."
Pros: "The staff is pleasant"
Pros: "That we landed safely."
Cons: "They didn't feed us. Maybe 5 hours was too short. I downloaded the gogoentertainment app, but every movie I chose said that the movie already expired."
Pros: "Service was good, lots of leg room and they even had in flight entertainment for free!, unlike all other domestic airlines where they always try to nickle and dime you. Great airline."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight"
Pros: "I like straight flights."
Cons: "I couldn't fly the plane myself. LOL The pilot wouldn't let me."
Cons: "There were no blankets and it was a bit cold on the flight"
Cons: "I did not have food or entertainment. Boarding and exit just takes a long time."
Pros: "My flights arrived early on both ends of a round trip—loved it! Plus, it was great having more leg room than the average airline offers. I'm over 6 feet tall. Leg room is a VERY big deal for folks like me."
Cons: "On the return trip, my plane taxied on the runway for over 30 minutes due to a conga line. As a result, an early arrival pretty much became an on-time arrival, so I'll give Alaska the benefit of the doubt."
Pros: "I was greeted the moment I boarded."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like except a pending typhoon but we were kept informed."
Pros: "From checking in the bags to boarding the flight, the staff was very helpful. They really care about their customers. My friend and I were separated on the flight and they did everything to sit us together."
Cons: "I don't like sitting in the middle seat for 6 hours"
Cons: "The flight attendant said my bag was too large for the overhead bin, and would need to be checked. Her demeanor was rude, and unprofessional. She said "well, if you can close this bin, then go right ahead". I closed it very easily. Her behavior made me much less likely to fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "the crew was very attentive , i liked that they board the back of the plane first"
Cons: "my in flight internet services didnt work at all and the food options were awful . we need a little more leg and aisle room"
Pros: "Great service all the way around."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. The crew were attentive. Food was excellent. Even the clouds parted to allow us some great scenery along the way."
Cons: "The only negative I can think of is that I had to pay for the trip but it was worth every penny."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and being able to charge my phone inflight was great"
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding. I specifically purchased a seat at the front of the aircraft thinking I would be boarded among the first. To then have to wait until the entire flight was boarded and then be called last was a horrible experience."
Pros: "I was very satisfied with my flight from BWI to LAX on May 10,2016. The crew was great. Boarding was easy. I think the value of the fruit and cheese plate was worth it. I feel like I got great value for what I paid for my ticket. On future trips I would consider flying Alaska again."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Great pilot and flight attendents, clean plane"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Pros: "I felt like I had enough room & was comfortable"
Cons: "Would like to have some form of free entertainment (music, TV show, movie) without renting a tablet"
Cons: "I'm a fairly frequent Alaska Airlines traveler and MVP. I can't believe how poor the circulation is in the rows 6-8. It was like being sauna for 5.5 hours. I was AA, I would be embarrassed to put anyone in those seats. The flight attendant told my family it is a well known problem on those planes, and that these is almost no air circulation at all in those rows. I had 0 air coming out of my vent. I usually am pleased with AA, but this was a miserable experience."
Pros: "New plane. Timely departure and arrival. Great friendly crew. Best of all, ample leg room, unlike the major airlines. To top it all off the lowest cost. Can't say enough."
Pros: "Pleasant staff"
Cons: "To cramped"
Cons: "I was freezing the entire flight."
Pros: "Decent room for being in coach."
Cons: "The one hour delay before takeoff."
Pros: "Everyone from the airline staff to the onboard crew was excellent! Very pleasant and accommodating, departing and returning! They treat you as individuals. The seats are pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The stewards do not ensure that people on the flight turn off their cell phone before taking flight. I was asked to check my bag and there was room on the flight. It was unfortunate since I had to work as soon as I returned to Baltimore and I had to wait for my carry on."
