Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"
Cons: "for a 1 hour flight, you could add more frequent services from Reno to SJC. This will help remove traffic from the roads during long weekend and encourage more travel to Reno/Tahoe area from those of us who don’t prefer driving in traffic"
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice and informed us about the cool deals they have for ski season in Oregon and Washington. I will definitely be flying Alaska a lot more!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi and entertainment was great."
Cons: "We left 4 hours later than expected. Didn't get home until the wee hours."
Pros: "Extra legroom seats for no additional price"
Cons: "Charging for checked bags. Charging for meals (hey, we got a free meal on Hawaiian on the way over)."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional; boarding was rushed; cabin was clean, but seating was very cramped; entertainment was v good (and currently free) using own tablet, phone, or smart phone."
Pros: "The flight offered was a direct flight. They offer preboarding for families with children under 2."
Cons: "The seats on this flight are so close together your shoulders literally touch your neighbors shoulders while sitting normally in your seat. This is unacceptable. When will airlines finally get it? People deserve to sit in their own seat without being on top of their neighbor."
Pros: "I liked the friendly customer service on the planes, comfortable and have heard great things about their points/rewards system for frequent flyers."
Cons: "Boarding process is not as well-defined and caused a pretty difficult crowding situation when leaving Seattle for Oakland. Giving more specific sections of seats to board at a time could help."
Pros: "POG was available from the beverage cart. On-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "We were assigned two middle seats in different rows for a five hour flight! Flight attendants were rude. The bathrooms were a mess. Complimentary food for a five hour flight is a bag with nine, dime-sized pretzels."
Pros: "Overall as expected. Decent flight, nothing that made me go "wow", but on time, clean, reasonable boarding."
Cons: "I found the reaction of one of the flight attendants to be unprofessional. When I asked if she could pour a bit of water into my water bottle, rather than say, "I'm sorry, I am not allowed" or "unfortunately, no" or really anything verbal, she made a "tsk, tsk" face and offered me a plastic cup. Besides being annoyingly wasteful as a policy (if indeed it is one - this has not been an issue on other airlines), her customer service skills left something to be desired. This strange interaction left me with a poor overall impression of the flight experience."
Cons: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew."
Cons: "I did not receive notice or a page of my flight leaving Boise. I was not in the airport long after arriving from Reno and I missed my original flight and I was right in front of the gate."
Pros: "Ticket agent kindly arranged for us to sit together - after we had been assigned seats apart from one another."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, disorganized and chaotic. Flight crew seemed to be overwhelmed and scattered. Ran out of hot meal about halfway through aircraft. When I expressed my disappointment, the F.A. said that there were a lot of wrestlers on board and they got all the food. I commented that it was poor planning and the FA stated that he didn't think anything would please me. He was argumentative and rude, IMO. He could have handled it better, eg: "So sorry. Out of our control, etc." To say that the food went to the wrestlers, and attitude gave me and those around me, the impression that he really didn't give a damn. Customer service training would be a good idea."
Pros: "my inflight meal was wonderful, the staff were friendly and very attentive and I was sitting in the last row. flight was delayed many hours due to mechanical issues on the plane and saftey came first."
Cons: "since the seat doesn't recline in the last row, more padding in the headrest would be nice"
Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful. Also a representative handed each passenger a chit with instructions for a discount on a future flight. Again a thought act instead of a flat response!"
Cons: "Lack of space between passengers."
Cons: "Not enough room in the cabin,"
Cons: "You failed to inform me that Alaska no longer offered the original flight from Eugene to Portland, so I had to buy another flight the next day and ended up being late for a family gathering for thanksgiving. The Eugene airport was extremely helpful but your service has been horrendous. I will no longer book through a 3rd party. I know this is the wrong flight I'm commenting on but your poor service equates to my poor feedback."
Pros: "Everything was on time with departure and arrival and fly was very smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that our 5 hour flight did not provide a complimentary meal. Also half of the crew were friendly but the other half was not so much. They also lack in cleaning up soon after serving drinks, snacks, etc.for we had to hold on to our garbage for a while. It would also be appreciated if they can preannounce and let us know ahead of time of what they're going to do i.e. when it's ok to get out of seat and when not."
Pros: "We were lucky and had a seat open between us. Comfortable, and crew were great."
Cons: "Coming down and landing"
Pros: "I was pleased that the crew was helping to get everyone on board and settled quickly. The plane was on time which everyone appreciates."
Pros: "the ground and flight crew made every effort to be sure that I made my connection (along with 5 others). They were very pleasant and accommodating"
Pros: "not availab;e"
Cons: "Alaska does not allow people on flights booked through third parties (priceline in this case) to choose your seating, you take what you get or, as in our case - have it fixed at the gate (which they did)."
Pros: "Boarding aircraft from back to forward. Speeds the boarding process."
Pros: "Crew members services were great."
Cons: "Seats are small size, old and some are ripped. Lavatory had no handwash. Most of all, the plane was very shaky/vibrates a lot. Landing wasn't that smooth."
Pros: "To be able to upgrade, charging stations at my seat, generous beverages"
Cons: "No free baggage, unclear coomunication about check in and choosing seats, was not offered my free drink."
Pros: "I booked my flight within 48 hours of travel and received a fare that I would expect normally with months of planning ahead."
Cons: "The turbulence but obviously a much smaller plane will get whipped around a lot more."
Pros: "I like the hospitality from the crew members and how smooth my travel experience was."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Great service. Always checked up on every guest on the plane if they needed anything."
Cons: "TSA was unprofessional, slow, and as usual pointless."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Seats are like hard plastic cop car chairs. Stale pretzel and drinks that were so shaken up when I opened it it sprayed me and the lady next to me. Long boarding times and again....my back is gonna be messed up for a while from the seats"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Late start 20min"
Pros: "crew did there best to help with passenger on board that needed medical attention they handled the situation luckily a passenger was a nurse and was able to help them"
Cons: "they need to prepare more for emergency situations alaska airlines need to provide bigger jets for flights longer than three hours"
Pros: "I liked how there was a bigger selection of free entertainment on the flight through the wifi stream. Some airlines don't have any free entertainment. Also the staff was helpful with bag check in."
Cons: "There were a couple of children who were crying and screaming almost the whole time, but that isn't the airlines fault and I realize that. Other than that, the flight was good."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew, and blocked the middle seat for our infant."
Cons: "Incredibly unhelpful unapologetic and generally sullen ground crew both coming and going even AFTER our infant car seat was lost for 4 days. No apology when we checked and and asked for reimbursement and actually rolled her eyes when we asked her to double check the destination."
Pros: "Flight departed on time."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Needs more amenities, free in flight movies perhaps, a better smack"
Cons: "Not the fault of the crew, but someone's coffee mug leaked all over the overhead storage compartment and dripped on top of all the passengers sitting underneath it. Other than that, it was a pretty smooth and short flight."
Pros: "The Alaska airlines people are very pleasant and helpful, I always fly Alaska when I travel to Hawaii. They seem to get there earlier than scheduled , I like that!"
Cons: "The flight attendants chatted loudly the whole flight - and it was an early morning flight where most were trying to sleep. One attendant spent a good 30 minutes talking about her daughter and a dance she went to."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great , so kind and helped us pick out snacks/drinks."
Cons: "How rude the people were around us. I felt really bad for the flight attendants and clean up crew :( . no one on that flight seemed to listen to the illuminated signs except for flight attendants and my row ."
Cons: "1 hour mechanical delay"
Cons: "Could not fly back on scheduled day because of wind in Reno, NV. Might need bigger aircraft in the future."
Cons: "Flight was cancled"
Pros: "On time departure. Arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The planes were tiny. Really small and uncomfortable. The staff-from check in to the flight attendants, were unhelpful and borderline obnoxious. I think this may be my last Alaska flight."
Cons: "$25 to check one bag is absolutely rediculous. Especially for one of the smaller planes. Flight attendants were nice but not organized. Plane is not comfortable in the slightest."
Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. I appreciate the complimentary bag check for my carry-on bag to the destination."
Pros: "confortable and good service."
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."
Cons: "More food more room - but hey that’s what we always want"
Cons: "On board entertainment was inop, making for a long (4) hours flight."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Cons: "Plane was cramped and in disrepair: broken seat arm and headrest, very limited recline. It was a 767 and felt more uncomfortable than a 30 seat regional jet. Very dated entertainment system with limited media options. Exceedingly long delay (1 hour) which the pilot attributed to the ground crew."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "For me the boarding was of fast"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "The intercom was turned up too loud."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."
Cons: "My kids were asleep when the flight attendant passed the snacks . I asked to get the snack for them and she told me they will have to get it in the back of plane once awake. Didn’t argue but was surprised"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was very professional"
Cons: "Have wifi available"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "Cabin was cold enough to store meat. Entertainment system was poor at best. And, of course, the seats were too small and uncomfortable. Time to start looking at other airlines."
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "Easy boarding and helpful crew (despite the rain as we walked to the plane)."
Cons: "No entertainment options on board. All Delta planes should have the TV monitors and radio."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "I enjoyed the upholstery and comfort of the chairs."
Cons: "I prefer to be made aware of delayed flights sooner than an hour before the flight. I would much rather wait in the comfort of home or a hotel over waiting in the airport."
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."
Pros: "Truly, everyone of the flight attendants were delightful, professional and caring."
Cons: "Food. I didn’t remember to bring food this time but thankfully I was far enough forward there was some. Thanks"
Pros: "Pls see above"
Pros: "Good in general."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "Not much . The boarding process took forever and the lines through TSA took longer .. no direction to lines and I was standing for 10 min before saying something to someone and they said o there’s another line."
Cons: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "The attention, kindness and never tiring helpful attitude of the personnel."
Cons: "None of the 7 screens I ried had the audio working. I had to result to sleeping when I could have easily enjoyed 3 movies and what not. It would also be helpful to have charging outlets on long-haul/international flights."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "Great service from the attendents and awesome movie selection"
Cons: "Seats not the most comfortable and boarding was sluggish."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "Nice and attentive staff, smooth on and off."
Pros: "They held the plane for me. Due to customs and TSA, I had to run across the airport, and then a bus to the correct terminal to catch the plane. I arrived at the gate a couple of minutes after it was closed. THANKFULLY the gate agent came back (he was on the plane) and issued my seat ticket (it had been upgraded) and led me to the plane. So, didn't miss my flight, AND had a seat upgrade."
Cons: "Nothing. Despite the slight delay to allow me on board, and the loooong line on the runway, we still made it to our destination ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "TSA in Atlanta was a nightmare. Really just a little kindness would go a long way."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "First time I've seen Delta have zone boarding areas near the gate, kinda like what Southwest does with their boarding numbers. Kinda worked, kinda still a mess. One crewmember was nice to my son at the end of the flight, offered to get him into the cockpit for a photo op."
Cons: "Very little legroom. My knees just barely fit in the aisle."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."
Pros: "My Delta flight from Salt Lake to Orlando was the dreaded redeye. Flight was packed, no empty seats. I had a middle row seat. But the plane was new and the seats were comfortable. The flight arrived early.I slept or tried to sleep the entire flight. No complaints."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Cons: "Just the nature of regional jet travel. Cramped, noisy. No problems, but harder to accept at the end of a 17 hour travel day."
Pros: "Delta Club"
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
