Pros: "Check in and crew were friendly and helpful. Was in first class so of course was comfortable. Deplaning was quick and efficient."
Cons: "This flight required taking a shuttle from the gate to an offsite location. The distance to the offside was rather far and we were packed in a shuttle. We had to wait for two more shuttles for passengers that were in delayed connections. Additionally, someone apparently filled the plane with too much fuel, throwing off the balance of the plane and we had to wait for some of the fuel to be removed. During this wait, in first class we were only offered orange juice or coffee. I realize it was a very short flight, but a snack might have been a good idea."
Pros: "The Pilot kept us safe XD"
Cons: "Pretzels!!! Instead of those cookies, bleh"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Late boarding, narrow seats"
Pros: "Crew was attentive to a couple of issues with families (not my issues, but could have affected customers traveling alone adversely)."
Cons: "Plane was delayed in Seattle, but there was no notification from Alaska. I found out through Kayak and didn't have as short a connection as I thought I would."
Cons: "We got in later than estimated."
Cons: "We were delayed for nearly 4 hours and were stuck on the plane while being lied to telling us “we’re up next to get de-iced then we can take off” then one hour goes by and the same announcement. Will never fly Alaskan again."
Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "would have loved a soda not juice and it seems like the turbulance is always bad"
Cons: "I realize flight delays happen, but many of us commute by plane!! Show a little hustle! It might make us feel like you care that we’re an hour late for work!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants kind and understanding."
Cons: "Mechanical issues making nearly an hour delay."
Pros: "Friendly and clean crew and plane"
Pros: "Appreciated the complimentary beer/wine"
Cons: "Scrunched seats"
Pros: "The attendants were really nice... flight was fast and smooth."
Cons: "My flight from Seattle to spokane was cancelled and then reinstalled but I had no boarding pass and had to get the ticket at the main desk before catching my connection. By the time I got through the line the flight was already gone"
Pros: "Organized and on time!"
Pros: "Friendly, punctual"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Great staff - fun and casual . - price was great"
Pros: "Everything, quiet"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Cons: "Our luggage was lost upon our return trip. While helpful, they didn't automatically offer a customer service gesture discount without request. This was mentioned upon disembarking from the jet. However, the claim attendant did not mention it at customer service to my wife. I had to go and mention what was stated by the flight attendant. While waiting again in line, I observed that the customer service person did not mention it to the two families in front of me."
Cons: "3 times in the last 10 years i have had flights with this airline from portland twice an seattle once everytime they have some excuse about air crews an the flights leave 2 hours late after a long layover this has been a problem for a long time if i knew the right people like in the faa to call i would . honestly i seriously recommend to do not fly this air line to spokane unless you are desperate .once ok twice wait a second three times two different citys there is something here an it need fixed yesterday"
Pros: "Got me home."
Cons: "Weather and pilot delays kept us in Seattle about an hour and a half longer than we were supposed to be. 1120pm flight actually left at 1am. Tried to find an earlier flight once we knew it was delayed the first time. No other options and then it delayed again. Part of travel I suppose and the crew was nice, just was ready to be home."
Pros: "On time. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Friendly staff with sense of humor. Beverage service even on a very short flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was oversold from the get go so there was a constant request for volunteers to take a later flight and voucher. At boarding time it was announced there was a mechanical delay for 30 min. Then another 30 min. Then another 30 min. Eventually it was announced that another plane with 20 fewer seats would be used and volunteers were requested again. After being awake over 24 hours a very miserable end to a trip."
Cons: "Traveling alone with my 7 mo infant. Boarded the plane and got all settled for our quick flight, just to be told that we all had to deplane due to mechanical issues. So, had to pack up all our baby stuff, grab our gate checked car seat and stroller, go to another gate, and board again. After taxiing for about 40 min, we finally took off (when we should have been landing). Definitely prepped bottles and diaper bag for a one hour flight and had an antsy baby by the time we landed. Totally understand that mechanical issues come up and am glad we were safe, but would have been much appreciated if we didn't have to board, deplane, and then board again."
Pros: "Poor experience"
Cons: "Flight cancelled at the last minute."
Pros: "The gate agents, flight attendants and flight crew were polite, professional and efficient."
Pros: "Useing both doors for loading and unloading"
Cons: "Getting roasted by the sun because there were no window shades. I was covered in sweat and there wasn't a dry spot left on my shirt. Why aren't there any window shades?"
Pros: "Crew was excellent despite the delays."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes in the aircraft after boarding, after the flight was already delayed 30 minutes. Warm day and none of the in aircraft ventilation was turned on. What should've been a roughly 45 minute flight from Seattle to Spokane became a 3hr slog."
Pros: "um...I got home?"
Cons: "Ugh where to start. First my flight from Oakland was delayed an hour, and while they did rebook me a flight (with a 3-hour layover in Seattle), they couldn't keep me in a first-class seat and didn't offer anything to compensate for that. This was my first time (and probably last time) treating myself to a first-class flight, and I was kind of looking forward to that seat...although I understand if flights are full.. When I arrived (an hour late) in Seattle, the gate was shown as N2, about ten thousand miles away from my debarking gate in the C section. After walking halfway there, I stopped at an Alaska desk to AGAIN verify info and ask if someone could PLEASE CHECK and see if I could keep my first-class seating, since I PAID for one originally and the delay was airline-based. They blandly told me the flights were full and everyone had checked in already, and then mentioned that the gate had been changed BACK to C section, so hike back another 5000 miles to where I started. Wait three hours. I did check in at the gate as well, yet again, to beg with my best smiley-face and see if the girls could find me a first class spot or put me on standby, since I PAID for it. They said, sadly, no it's all full and checked in. Wait and wait. When I finally did board, I noticed that the info board said that "two upgrade requests" had been filled. What? Seriously? Is that MY FIRST CLASS SEAT YOU JUST GAVE SOMEONE? *frowns slightly* Walked through the already-seated first-class cabin, noticing that TWO OF THEM are empty. I was seated in the middle between a regular dude and this woman who is apparently running her company and having a conference call loudly on her phone, right in my ear. So yes, we understand: She's important. After sitting for a few minutes, I finally buzzed an attendant, who finally arrived, and asked her AGAIN, if she could please check if there any first class seats open, because that is what I PAID FOR and I'd appreciate finishing my trip as it was origanally booked. She said she'd check. AND THEN DISAPPEARED FOREVER. Never did see her again. A few minutes later, yet another attendant walked down the aisle with a clipboard, checking for open seats and I'm thinking she's coming to tell me that yes, there's been an opening and one of those 2 empty seats is mine and please go ahead and move. But no. She walks on by and says something about adding more standby people to some empty seats. I'm literally biting my tongue. Then, before I can say anything, these TWO GUYS come flailing down the gangway and bail into the two lovely EMPTY first-class seats in front of me. *scowl* I'm sorry, but unless they were late getting to the plane, and those were actually their seats (could be true), this whole thing was handled very strangely. I never fly first class anyway, and I understand delays and full flights, but it would have been nice to have anyone even attempt to help me finish my trip in the class that I had PAID FOR."
Pros: "The check-in was easy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from GEG -> PDX Before departure, the pilot announced that the flight would be "very bumpy" and so they weren't going to have drink service at all and the flight attendants would stay seated for the duration of the flight. This made me very nervous for the whole flight. However, it was hardly bumpy at all. I arrived tired from getting all worked up over nothing. On the way back to Spokane, the pilot announced before departure that the takeoff and landing would be bumpy, but once we got up to altitude it would be smooth. The reality was totally the opposite. During takeoff it was quite smooth, but then there was so much turbulence at cruising altitude that the pilot came on to say they were cancelling the beverage service halfway through for safety reasons. And then it smoothed out before landing. I thought it was a bad experience on both counts. Why even bother making a prediction about flight conditions if they are so changeable? It only sets people's expectations and then they are disappointed or unsettled."
Pros: "Gate attended kept us posted on what was going on when our flight was delayed. So wasn't left wondering what was going on"
Pros: "It was fast."
Cons: "The crew was rude, it was so unpleasant"
Pros: "Flight was on time and everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Such a short flight, 37 minutes. Just oj or water. All else great."
Cons: "The customer service representative at the counter was cold, without a smile, and not having much eye contact while providing service and answers. That makes it an unpleasant experience while I needed to get a boarding pass."
Pros: "a few minutes early...great job, great crew considering the morning following a snow storm"
Cons: "nothing... i even sat next to a very nice old lady excited about making it in the flight"
Pros: "Everything was great. I was on a regional flight so I didn't try any food and their was no entertainment but everything ran very smoothly. Very pleased."
Cons: "Don't like walking out and climbing into plane. Have to knee replacement and process was uncomfortable and hard. Bombardier planes are cold and extremely noisey"
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Makes sense to board back of plane first"
Cons: "I was offered water, wine or orange juice but told there wasn't time to offer full beverage options because the flight wasn't long enough. Though the cart was fully stocked. How could it take more time to pour ginger ale than water? Made no sense."
Pros: "Small airplane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Everything went perfectly. Great price."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "My favorite airline by far! On time, great crew, great flight"
Pros: "The crew is always really nice on Alaska"
Cons: "The plane was really small. There is no entertainment, but the flight was only 50 minutes so it doesn't matter."
Cons: "Fellow passenger that would not shut up"
Pros: "plane needed repairs was put on a direct flight to Portland"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Same as above. It was the same airplane with the same crew."
