Everything good, crew and otherwise. Did not partake of food or entertainment. You need to add an “na” choice.

the crew one in particular ALLY was rude and not professional

Seats are comfortable and Alaska let’s you choose your seats with paying extra. They served us snacks and drinks on our 3+ hour flight. Alaska is a great airline!

It was comfortable safe flight.

For a cross country flight, airline should at least offer 1 meal.

Pros: "Affordable non-stop flight."
Cons: "Relatively long flight with no substantial snack."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Boarding confusion"

Cons: "Seats felt even more narrow than I am used to, and area under seat seemed smaller. Could barely fit my backpack underneath."
Pros: "Not much to like about this entirely unexceptional airline."
Cons: "Everything costs money - food, entertainment, luggage - and far too much at that, which is unacceptable for such a long flight."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and instead of getting a cancellation notice, I received a “your flight has been updated” email which indicated that my flight was changed from Wednesday to Friday. Unacceptable!!!"

Cons: "We had a delay in departure"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Super flight"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The employees are excellent and very friendly."

Cons: "The delay due to mechanical failure and not being compensated"
Pros: "I liked that there was in flight entertainment on smart devices but not a big enough selection."
Cons: "I didn’t love the movie or tv choice, nor the “food” since none was offered. The wine wasn’t very good. I would find a good distributor with little bottles so you aren’t pouring from the same bottle and people can take what they don’t drink."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Didn’t know that Alaska and virgin America were now one, great in flight entertainment for the whole family."
Cons: "Seats are so small and there is virtually no leg room. No choice of free snacks—just a cookie. Took forever to disembark—so long that no one from the crew said good-bye to us and the cleaning crew had already begun cleaning the 1st class area. Flight take off/ landing was comfortable. No on board movies. Couldn’t even connect with my own iPad or iPhone. Can’t believe there are airplanes without screens on the back of seats. Just an okay flight."
Pros: "Alaska Air was AWESOME!"

Pros: "Roomy seats, friendly staff."
Cons: "Not permitted to use both bathrooms (one on front reserved for first class only)."

Cons: "My luggage that was to be loaded in the cargo area of the plane never was put on the plane. No clothes, no shoes, no medications, no gps radio equiptment, and no special fishing equiptment, (as I was on a sportfishing vacation). Really, Really dissappointed."
Pros: "Jo and lauren are the best!!! Best flight i’ve ever been on. Keep up the good work and service"
Pros: "Alaska tried to keep us informed after technical issues forced a three-hour delay in the flight. This included communication, snacks, and compensation. Given the circumstances, the ground crew performed well. The cabin crew did a great job."
Cons: "The technical issues, which caused a number of follow-on issues (over-fueling the plane), was preventable. But ultimately, they solved the problem and got us safely to Spokane."
Pros: "Going through TSA was horrible!! Honolulu airport definitely needs more help to get people through the lines. We are both in our 70's and had to wait way to long of time to get through security!!!"
Cons: "The flight was good but when we landed at Sea-Tac airport, we had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to our gate!!! It was 2 hours before we got off the plane. We missed our Sea-Tac shuttle to take us to Oak Harbor and had to reschedule. We just made the next one and it cost us to reschedule. Thank goodness they had room for us on the next shuttle!!! Not very happy!!! It was no fault of the Alaska pilots or crew but the management of the airlines!!"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew"
Cons: "I like complimentary food and entertainment"
Cons: "I didn't like that my passport was expired. I didn't ride any plane that day. My trip to the airport was uneventful, however I had to leave at 2:30 AM ."

Cons: "Maintenance issues caused extensive delays. Ran out of food options by the time they got to my row."
Cons: "Gate 11c."
Cons: "There was a long wait for staff to check our bags. Approximately 45-60 minutes in a line of 30+ people."
Pros: "Price of the ticket last minute one way from Boston to Anchorage for a family members surgery. Did a one way coming back even cheaper! Also missed connecting flight in Seattle and CS rep was kind enough to put me on a very booked flight 2 hours later. She waived the $200 change fee she could have charged. TY very much Brittany in Seattle!"
Cons: "Bring ur own snacks. Food is expensive like every other airline and not necessarily what one might feel like eating at that time."
Pros: "Great service and very organized."
Pros: "Alaska attempted did their best to compensate me."
Cons: "I missed all my business meetings in Seattle."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Flight was pleasant"
Cons: "Changed from 6AM next day to 3PM day early - charged $375!!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not being informed why flights were delayed at all,wether a one hour delay, which I had on my first flight or a four hour delay. Felt I was not being informed , felt I was cornered into taking the last possible flight to Boise not even knowing I would get there. Then to top it all off, I was prevented , by an Alaska man from taking my suitcase after arriving from Kelowna, BC into Seattle, in taking my 6:45 flight to Boise though I had a half hour to get thru TSA. Upon rebooking a flight, it became apparent I would be on the last flight into Boise but that was delayed 4 hours! The topping on the cake was my luggage had 4 hours to get on board BuT did not get there. Why must it be inspected twice? My luggage was still in Seattle Jan. 5. It finally came in late, by that time we drove back to Hailey, Idaho. Thankfully my luggage arrived by 1:00 am Jan. 6 ! Sorry, I was not impressed. On one flight Dec. 18 , to BC, Canada, the Alaskan stewardess said she was sorry but could not even offer us water, reallly? Susan Teed"

The boarding process was more like a circus than an ordered process. It wasn’t necessarily the Westjet staff, as it was people attempting to push in and board early. The seats in economy are far too small and limiting; I am aware that this is a transaction for money.. I’d just like to feel less like cargo or cattle. I got what I wanted, a trip from point A to point B, it just wasn’t an experience that left me feeling good about the company or the experience. If I’m comparing Westjet with o other flights, it could have been better in service, in seat room, and just little things like a smile from the staff letting you know that it’s not just a job for them.

Flight was cancelled, then rebooked for 10 hours later, but I wouldn’t reach my destination (which was only about 400km away from my origin), until 14 hours later. Was able to call westjet for them to put me on an earlier (non-direct flight) with a connection in Vancouver. Along the way, my bag was lost and has yet to arrive.

Nothing everything was prefect

competitive price with free carry on bag. I just wish they didn't charge for seat selection.

Pros: "We upgraded our return flight to Plus. The extra space is great."
Cons: "Compared to our flight in, this was lacking a bit. We were only offered beverages one time, the flight attendants didn’t come to clear our waste.

No room to stretch your legs, for those of us who have circulation problems...."

Pros: "Crew overworked but pleasant and doing their best. Self check in works well with assistance"

Aame

Terrible customer service

tv did not work. earphones broken. too much kids. crying

Pros: "Movies and shows. Blankets. Prompt staff on plane. Snack options."
Cons: "Ticket counter was stubborn to release our boarding passes despite having already checked in online. Saying we were “too late”. The kiosk would not release our boarding passes either. Yet, we breezed right through security to the gate and we’re first to board the plane having had to actually wait awhile before boarding. The ticket counter person unnecessarily made us wait even longer when we were already running late due to having spent 11 hours in the hospital day prior from E. coli. The boarding process was also sloppy. Three different attendants asked to see our passports. Why did everyone need to verify us? We were asked very silly and seemingly unnecessary questions before boarding further slowing the process. We were asked before boarding if we had checked a bag, not sure what difference that made."
Cons: "gate boarding schedule was horrible, and checking in your luggage was a nightmare, missed my flite, and the second day it almost happened again it is totally a mess at this airport unbelievable!!"
Pros: "Exelent airline"
Pros: "Crew as amazing Abaut seat to really comfortable but i understand that because i paid for tourist class"

Pros: "Enjoyable flight with great crew!!!"
Pros: "No complaint at all, I am very satisfied."
Cons: "Gate no printed on boarding passes. I understand that gate no are subuject to change, but at least it would point me on the Wright direction"
Cons: "Attitude of the Aeromexico flight attendants . No customer service skills . Rude and disregarding"
Pros: "We were early, the flight attendants were really nice, and it was a pretty smooth trip for a rainy day"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for along time. One piece of luggage was missing and was returned with holes. In other words, destroyed"

Cons: "There was not red wine, other than that no complaints"
Pros: "Our ~5 hour lay over in Benito Juarez airport was not good."

Cons: "That there was nothing ales but peanuts for a snack. I don't like peanuts. I understand that it was a 2hr flight, but I was tired and would of loved a blanket and they didn't have any. Flight AM to JFK again only one choice for breackfast, so I tried it, eggs w string beans and black beans. Did not like!!"
Pros: "First class was nice onboard the plane, but too tired to enjoy it since it was a 1am flight."
Cons: "The counters did not open until 10pm, only 2hrs B4 "the flight closed at 12 midnight), even though they say arrive 180 minutes early. The "SkyPriority" line was the slowest line. At the outset two agents weren't even helping guests. This was a very frustrating experience. Unfortunately, I had to pickup and recheck my bag and ended up waiting outside security for several hours because there was no where to drop the bag after passing immigration from my connecting flight. I suggest AM get another airline's baggage handler to recheck bags for early arriving customers so at least they can wait inside security where amenities abound."
Pros: "The cabin attendants were very professional, bilingual and smiled."
Cons: "No internet service available."
Cons: "Aeromexico's conditions of carriage allow them to cancel your flight rebook you days later with no liability. They pay no compensation for delays that last days . Take at your own risk, I learn the hard way."

Cons: "On June 29 Aeromexico Flight 2683 arrived in Mexico City airspace and the Captain informed the passengers that the plane would have to refuel in Alcapulco due to inclement weather in Mexico City. The website https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/mexico/mexico-city/historic reports NO inclement weather on that date or at the time that AM 2683 was to land. I observed partly cloudy skies from my window seat as well. The ground crew in Alcapulco was unprepared for AM2683 and the fueling was delayed. After doing so, AM 2683 landed AFTER my connecting flight AM 684 was scheduled to depart at 1:05 AM on June 30. A female connection agent met me at the baggage claim and informed me that that AM 684 had not been held and had departed. The female agent was unhelpful, dismissive and rude. In fact, she had taken a personal cell phone call at the connections desk prior to assisting passengers of AM 2683 which lasted many minutes. She escorted us to the Aeromexico counter where I waited 30 or more minutes to speak to a representative. The representative at the Aeromexico counter informed me that there were NO flights to Quito until 1:05 AM on July 1. I asked if she could book me on another airline and she informed me that because the delay was weather related Aeromexico had no obligation to accomodate me. She booked me on AM684 for July 1. I asked where I was to wait for the next 24 hours and she said Aeromexico had no obligation to pay for lodgings. She gave me food vouchers for the airport. I immediately logged onto Travelocity.com and found a Copa Airlines flight to Quito leaving that afternoon which was in fact OPERATED BY AEROMEXICO! I booked that ticket myself and waited in the Mexico City Airport for 14 hours. What would have taken 10 hours took me 22."
Cons: "Massive 12hour delay, no compensation and then plane was over 45 minutes late the next day"
Pros: "Provide a service of excellence when the delay is so great because people are upset and should mitigate the anger."
Cons: "Why leave first flights that originally departed 1 hour or two later"
Pros: "Shops"
Cons: "Not knowing where the gate was until 30 min before.No Awro Mexico employee to help with the gate change and monitor was wrong"
Pros: "First class"
Cons: "Seats no that comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, good overall flight"
Cons: "Please offer a vegetarian food option. Many people would enjoy it. It's healthier, tastes better. Simple veg sandwich or bowl of rice and beans? There are many options for a simple vegetarian meal. Only option to eat is white bread with a piece of processed meat. People take it but many people would love another option"
Pros: "The New airplanes. great crew with excellent team work concepts"
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The system they have to check in is the worst. Why should you have to make a HUGE LONG line to print a boarding pass than go make another HUGE LONG LINE to check in your bags. On top of it all they charge $25 for the first bag you check in. WTF that's just being crazy. Soon they will charge people to use the on board toilet. The crew members were very rude, don't smile. They give you actitude when you asthem for something. Uncomfortable seats from the 80's. Smelly airplane. I wouldn't recommend flying with Aeromexico ever!"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Crew was nice and eficiente, flight was smooth"
Cons: "No entertainment on flight and only peanuts and drink to eat"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "The meal was cold"
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Retraso de una hora 40 minutos"

It's only a semi-complaint because I did not have to wait for my bag when I arrived, but my bag was sent on an earlier flight without me.

Kayak…wonderfull app

Flight delayed. Offered hotel voucher on the phone but then airline wouldn't provide one at the airport where we missed our connection due to the delay

My flight was delayed a total of 6-7 times before finally boarding 51/2 hours after the original time of the flight.

On time!

It was three hours delayed. If they knew people were delayed from other planes they shouldn’t have boarded us yet. We spent two hours just waiting on the plane

Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.

Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."
Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Pros: "The plane was super comfortable"
Cons: "The crew of boarding was very rude"
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "That flight was not ultimately cancelled after 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Upon arriving after 4 hour delay, for crying out loud have someone there to immediately for deboarding !!!"
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Pros: "Seat upgrade."
Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."
Pros: "Very good crew."
Cons: "Hate the kiosk check in"
Cons: "We were told to board quickly so we could leave on time, boarded and sat for more than a half hour. The landing at Monterey was dreadful, hit hard first touchdown and then two more bounces."
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"
Cons: "Delay out of Wichita and another delay out of Dallas, got into Tokyo 3 hours late. Paid $167 for upgrade to economy plus but seat assignment was in economy"
Cons: "The delay in Columbus caused me to miss my connection and have to fly into LAX instead of LGB."
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "extra leg room but I had to pay for it"
Cons: "This should only be used for important communications. And to not offer food on a 6 hour flight is horrible."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "I think for the most part you have some of the best customer service but your snacks are awful compared to other airlines."
Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."
Pros: "When I was able to get my seat TV to work I enjoyed a movie."
Cons: "Food gave me cramps, seat was super uncomfortable, and the crew was not happy to be there."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly staff"
Cons: "We were a little delayed"
Pros: "Flight was on time and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "We get used to cramped conditions on domestic flights but normally get more for international flights. The 777 was very modern but small cramped seats (3 4 3 configuration) meant for a tough journey and almost impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Cons: "Old plane with no tvs or power source for a 5 1/2 hour flight. Dirty plane too."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was falling apart. Food served frozen cold. Entertainment was commercials then nothing for hours. Crew was a mess and rude. Flight from hell."
Pros: "No internet on long light!!!!"
Pros: "No complaints. Love American!"
Cons: "Missed flight, no help. Spent $500 for nothing."
Pros: "Quick flight, stewardesses still offered complimentary drinks, a/c worked well."
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "The long time inside the plane 1h 30 m ."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no food"

I am not a huge fan of air travel but due to work I fly back and forth from Edmonton to Toronto every six weeks or so. IMO Air Canada is the best airline. It is definitely the most expensive but the flight crew are all far more professional than any of the discount carriers. The air craft is also configured in a more passenger friendly fashion so that it's not the most uncomfortable three hours possible. I do wish the price was a bit lower but they always get you home which is the whole point of putting up with air travel, and sadly, more than you can say for a lot of the other operations with planes in the sky right now.

The staff were friendly and the plane was on time. The jack in seat 25A for sound needs to be fixed.

Cons: "Not so crowded during COVID. Every seat full"
Cons: "No delays"

Pros: "Entertainment, service"
Cons: "30 minutes of delay at least."

Cons: "The lunch was average at best. Comedy show selections were terrible (in my opinion). I miss the days of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development."
Cons: "There’s not enough leg room & no food other than pretzels"
Cons: "Flight wad delayed without letting me know anything for next schedule. and staff was non cooperative."
Pros: "Friendly attendants, excellent foods"
Pros: "The flights are fine, on time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Air Canada was a disaster on our vacation. Delays, re bookings, cancellations. Every thing was told to us as an excuse from the weather, flight attendant was running late, not staffed enough, need supplies on the plane, someone died, planes needing de-icing, planes too small, planes overbooked... you name it they said it! New York to Toronto, Toronto to Edmonton and return. Not one single flight was on time! We got put in a Hotel - only nice part of the trip - got Vouchers for $15 each - such a low amount!!! Didn't get our luggage with our clothes and amenities to use at the hotel - had to sleep in our plane clothes. Spend extra money we didn't have... it was awful! We will be staying away from Air Canada for awhile!"

Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The crew on board all flights were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination I found that the item I had gate checked had been damaged- an instrument case I was no longer able to close. The zippers had both been busted off. Due to time constraints I was invited to write a review and email which I intend to do. The item itself was gate checked for safety - and to me the damage says that still somehow it is unsafe to fly with an instrument which as a professional musician is frustrating. In addition flights have very limited food options that accommodate persons with gluten/dairy allergies."

Cons: "Some staff were very personable and some were the opposite."
Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment console is pretty good"
Cons: "Departure was 40 minutes delayed right off the bat for reasons unknown and unexplained. Then, worse, mechanical trouble on the tarmack, we had to return to the gate and power down the plane, while still remaining on board, unventilated and unpleasantly sweaty, in the dark even for a while. What should have been a quick 1.5 hour flight and 8:30pm arrival thus became a sweaty 4-hour ordeal and almost 11pm arrival. Not the end of the world, but I was a bit taken aback at the absence of apologetic behaviour, like perhaps serving drinks while we're sweating on the tarmack, or heaven forbid, a meal of some sort considering we were departing later than we should have all already been home."
