The seats are pretty uncomfortable for the long flights, but that's fairly standard in your industry.
Delay at DFW. App didn’t reflect until 1/2 later.
Everything good, crew and otherwise. Did not partake of food or entertainment. You need to add an “na” choice.
The internet was painfully slow for $29.95. Felt like it was way too much considering the poor performance.
Flight was delayed. Crew seemed a little disorganized. Gate changed several times
The seating space is too narrow and small
Better complimentary food options. At least have a savory option along with the sweet.
Unannounced gate change and flight late,
Flight was canceled. They did nothing to get us on another flight. Terrible service
Delay was terrible. The seat I paid $43 for was uncomfortable the doorade it super small. I paid over $100 for 6 lbs over weight. Ridiculous.
Staff on plane were fine. Ticketing was poorly trained or incompetent to handle boarding passes
do not book this trip thru kayak. i think the relationship between kayak, alaska and american airlines is not one where they talk to each other and these tickets had me going from terminal c in DFW to terminal d and back to terminal c (not an easy or quick process) b/c the confirmation number was messed up by one of the 3 parties (likely kayak). i highly recommend you go to aa.com and buy the tickets there to avoid the confusion and the 4 hour processing it took to get on the airplane at dfw.
Once again I did not get the seat I paid for and sat in the last row infront of the bathrooms. Kayak/ Alaska should have sent me an email or text to notify me of flight change. Bad experience because of you.
We were delayed two hours and then missed our connection. We got rebooked only for it to be cancelled.
Cons: "ladue leaving dallas. late arriving toseattle so gate was gone. had to sit on tarmac after landing."
Pros: "Nothing horrible service."
Cons: "Everything . Meet customer expectations and we’ll as accommodations"
Pros: "Cheese tray was great, good selection of movies"
Cons: "Seats are very narrow"
Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "travelers needed to listen"
Pros: "I love the free entertainment and texting. That is a big plus on a long flight."
Pros: "Our pilot was excellent. Best flight considering the weather while flying over Colorado. He was informative about the turbulence beforehand and did a great job steering through or around most of it. Typically I hate flying."
Pros: "Newer plane Early takeoff and arrival Smooth flight and good food for purchase"
Cons: "There was only one rude employee when we were printing our boarding passes. The machine malfunctioned and she treated us as if we had done something wrong. She would not communicate with us, she was very impatient with not only us but the other employees around her. I did not get her name, I just wanted to try to stay positive and get out of her proximity as quickly as possible."
Pros: "Strewardess were great , fun. Gave extra snacks."
Pros: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Thanks to delayed flight I didn’t make my connection."
Pros: "Nice, easy flight. Boarding was smooth and easy. Really like their 20 minutes to have baggage to carousel rule....nice!"
Cons: "I had a window priority seating, and without notifying me they change my seat to a middle seat and when I called to change it was pretty much told, no other seats available... Too bad."
Pros: "Comfortable, quiet, friendly"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Even with extra legroom, the seats were uncomfortable. Very hard, 2” movement is not really a reclining seat"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and flight was smooth and fast once we were on."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 2 hours and we were told once we got there. We sat by the bathroom and there was a constant flow of people and crew, wish the line was better controlled."
Cons: "We had an hour delay at the dallas airport"
Pros: "The plane was very clean, staff was very kind & the take off/landing was very smooth."
Pros: "The entertainment package. Large screen , top of the line - can read USB sticks, the food is good"
Pros: "We where given the tour feeling when the captain explained what we where flying over The app to watch movies was awesome I like the way alaska loads their planes it makes a lot more sense"
Pros: "I loved the fact that I could actually use FREE wi-fi to text through my apps and keep in communication with people while on the plane. It didn't feel like I was being forced to pay for wi-fi ONLY because I wanted to use some of my texting apps (which can use wi-fi). This is by far the biggest plus I've ever had with any flights, and I'm going to use Alaska Airlines any time I get the chance for future international flights just because of it. And yes, of course, the service was amazing :)"
Pros: "Still a little bit of the old fashioned service and curtesy left."
Cons: "Last trip on Alaska, I was offered a complementary beverage. ( alcohol) . I thought it was a joke. This time, no. $7. Was a joke."
Pros: "Lots of leg room... that was GREAT!"
Cons: "Seats were like plywood and too short to cushion you head or even use a pillow. That said, I survived the flight without any aches or pains."
Pros: "Great crew. Got upgraded to 1st class."
Pros: "My mother took a flight from DFW to PDX last week. She is elderly and handicapped. She marveled at how well she was treated and how well she was taken care of. All her needs were met and she arrived tired but not in pain, which was outstanding! Thumbs up!"
Pros: "Flight was on time , bording the plane was smooth and quick. The flight attendants was very informative and professional."
Cons: "Alaska Airlines NEEDS to provide BETTER SNACKS"
Pros: "Plane was a brand new 737 that was delivered in 2016. It had very high-tech LED-based mood lighting, which gave off a soft glow yet still allowed people to sleep if they chose. Flight boarded efficiently, departed DFW on time, and arrived in Portland on schedule. Service from the crew was pleasant and prompt. I like the new style of power outlets in every seat that Alaska uses. You can plug in a laptop or other device using a standard plug, and they also have a USB outlet for charging phones or tablets. Would fly again."
Cons: "There wasn't really anything I disliked, but I did not try the on-board food or entertainment during the flight."
Pros: "We were able to get out on the next scheduled flight."
Cons: "Turbulence. Missing connecting flight because of a refuel stop in Colorado Springs."
Pros: "All flights left and arrived on time! I greatly appreciated the timeliness of all 4 flights. It is one of the reasons I search for Alaska Airlines flights first."
Cons: "Way too hot in the cabin. Poor legroom."
Cons: "Because of ATC, we waited on taxiway for 40 minutes in a hot airplane in Dallas. Yet, when I look at Alaska airlines Flight Status, it shows we departed early. But, Alaska is my favorite airline."
Pros: "Nice crew. Great boarding"
Cons: "Pretzels. Had to rent device or have your own to see movies etc. And then pay for movie"
The flight was late leaving by a half hour. Other than that it was excellent
I didn't get to take this flight due to delays and missed flight
Great if they didn’t cancel my flight
Atleast along with water or juice they should give some snacks.
Short flight, food and entertainment.. not an issue..
Easy boarding on and off. There is nothing really bothered me.
Online check in the night before made boarding easy. Free check in of luggage at the gate was also offered. Crew offered drinks twice. Wish they would give food like they used to instead of selling it. On board entertainment was good & worked well. Surprised that it was a full flight but it was comfortable. Boarding and deplaning was organized and check in luggage came out promptly!
Pros: "The customer service phone number was impossible to get through on in order to take to someone within 24 hours of my flight in order to make my Special Meals request as I have Celiac's Disease. I was unable to make this selection at booking as when you book through a third party like Expedia, which I did, you cannot access the same internal tools required to make that selection. You can ONLY then call once you have checked in before the flight in order to let the airline know of your Special Meal needs. This is not only a terrible policy as it undercuts those who ARE ultimately still buying tickets to their airline, and that the airline is CHOOSING to sell. It provided me with an extremely subpar experience of the airline but left up to the last minute with doubts about my ability to board a 13 he international flight without the reassurance that I would have ANY meals aboard and no other options should that be the case. Right before my flight departed I was reassured that the information we had requested Expedia relay to the airline internally the day before, who we called when we couldn't get through to the airline, WAS able to convey this Special Meal request and I was going to have food on the flight, so I then did not purchase a bunch of snacks in the airport to have as options. The first meal in, no Special Meal was provided and I had to explain then entire situation all over again. They assured me they would figure it out and get me taken care of. However, no one who assisted me conveyed this to anyone else on the flight and every time food was dispersed, same situation. This was stressful and exhausting and the options provided me were modified to be gluten free, such as an entire plate of fruit for my snack, instead of the protein heavy snack everyone else received, because there truly wasn't extra for that type of dietary restriction. This was stressful and I was very hungry on the flight. One of the attendants got me a few chunks of cheese from first class, but otherwise, it wasn't great. I would advise travelers with Special Meal requests NOT to fly with AirCanada."
Pros: "It was a small twin prop so there was only one cabin crew, but she was really pleasant."
Cons: "Instead of just staying on the plane we were required to deplane and take all of our luggage and haul it all through a long winding ramp and hallway into the airport. As soon as we got there, they said it was boarding immediately and we had to turn around and haul it all right back."
Pros: "I don’t usually complain, but this was probably my least comfortable flight. Not much that I liked about the flight."
Cons: "Compensation or at least an apology for tv screen and air conditioning not working. The flight was hot and boring."
Cons: "Attendee is very rude."
Pros: "Most of the flight there was strong odor of suer smell"
Cons: "This was a direct flight from DFW to Vancouver. 3.5 hours. Upon arrival in Vancouver we were paged to baggage claim and informed that our bags were taken off the plane and would arrive later in the night. Problem was, we were leaving on a cruise at 4:30PM. Our bags had two cruise luggage tags on each bag. When our bags were delivered to us 2.5 days later in Ketchikan, Alaska - The cruise tags had been torn off our bags. There were a minimum of 8 vacant seats and corresponding luggage not on this plane. I believe Air Canada had a chance to load more cargo and removed our luggage to make more room for the cargo. I will never fly this airline again. I had nothing good to say to anyone on our cruise regarding this airline. Terrible passenger service. The guest services said that 16 bags were delivered in Ketchikan from Air Canada."
Pros: "The flight itself was very good The plane was quite new. Very comfortable seats and plenty of leg room with nothing obstructing the foot space. Good inflight entertainment and complimentary earbuds. Flight attendents were capable and friendly, food service better than average."
Cons: "Check-in at the Air Canada counter was chaotic, a long lineup with only one agent available to direct the crowd. She coped well considering there were multiple people asking questions at the same time. There was a small sign instructing persons who had obtained boarding passes and luggage tags to go to baggage drop but no signs or separate lanes to indicate where that was. Very disorganized. At the gate it was the same scenario. Agents at adjacent desks were calling boarding instructions for multiple flights at the same time. Our Vancouver flight was never actually announced but passengers all started lining up because the stated boarding time had passed. It was impossible to tell which flight was calling for which boarding zones and everyone was wondering out loud "what is going on here?" Once finally aboard we sat on the runway, our flight left an hour late and we missed our connecting flight in Vancouver which, I realize happens. However..."
Pros: "Around $700 air fair for round trip flight to Asia is a good deal."
Cons: "The flights between Vancouver and Dallas are small and tight, very uncomfortable. Normal carry on csn not fit into overhead bins."
Pros: "The flights went smoothly overall. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The movie selection on the tv was limited."
Pros: "The extra $50 seats were roomy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no one knew why!... Plane had been sitting ready at the airport for hours. Novice flight attendants, they each picked on different things others missed just before them. No consistency, seats left reclined during takeoff and landing for example. One way there was drink service once even though it was a smooth flight and the return had drink service twice even though it was bumpier! Entertainment does NOT work on androids, it is NOT the AirCanada app they tell you to download prior to the flight, it's an AirCanadaRouge.pk file that needs to be downloaded in flight! Which means we're stuck paying for the iPad and of course only with cc because there's no wifi for debit cards.... AC needs to stop this insanely mediocre and yet expensive monopoly."
Pros: "The ease of boarding the plane and the crew wa attentive and pleasant."
Cons: "Food was not great, but was edible. Leg room was not as good on the long flight as the shorter connector."
Pros: "I didn't really care for to much, I was just thankful I made it safely!"
Cons: "By far the WORST experience I have ever had flying international as well as the most costly due to flight changes and delays with your airline.I WILL NEVER fly air Canada again!!!!!!"
Pros: "No water in washroom No coffee , Coffee machine do not work Food is for purchase and the whole menu is not available except one item only crew are not friendly No head phones for entertainment I will NOT fly with Air Canada again unless I am forecd to do so"
Cons: "Crew did not seem to want to do anything extra. Movies seem to be out of date. Unpopular TV shows. A little cramped seating. I paid for a premium seat, no real difference I could tell."
Pros: "Plane was quite comfortable for a smaller model."
Cons: "Entertainment system was difficult to use as touch screen only worked accurately 1 out of every 4 times. Only food offered was a tiny bag of pretzels."
Pros: "Flight was delayed leaving Dallas due to crew members arrived late."
Pros: "Easy , on time, friendly"
Pros: "Short and easy checkin"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Did not reimburse new arrangements. Missed connection due to flight delays on Air Canada's behalf."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Connecting flight was cancelled (still in toronto now) and confusion over the boarding pass made me think it was another 24 hours til we flew out."
Pros: "There was no outstanding feature to mention."
Cons: "The delay, but not a big deal."
Pros: "Good service hassle free"
Cons: "1시간이상 딜레이, 비행기를 타고서도 1시간쯤 있었던 것 같다. 그리고... 난 뒤에서 두번째 좌석에 앉았는데, 맨 뒷좌석에서 두 직원이 밥을 먹으며 얼마나 떠들어 대던지... 그리고 돌아다니면서도 주머니에 손을 넣은 채 거의 빼지 않고 말만 많은 젊은남자직원... 정말 건방져보였다. 착륙할 때 얼마나 급정거를 하던지 맨 뒤에 있었던 큰 물병이 떨어져서 맨 앞까지 굴러가더라. 다른 승객도 나와 눈이 마주친 후 무사히 착륙한 것을 축하한다고 쓴웃음을 지으며 농담을 했다. This is the Air Canada."
Pros: "I like the prompt service by Air Csnada ticketing at DFW . I got immediate attention and wheelchair staff was very gentle and friendly. Very smooth process passed TSA."
Cons: "When arriving YYZ, don't mind to be the last passenger to get off, but I was waiting inside the plane for wheelchair about 30 mins after everyone has gone. Perhaps the staff should be managed better the timing. Lucky yyz is my destination, otherwise i would have missed the connecting flight. Waiting for 30 mins is too long. Also the staff stopped for another 10 m in ns to take care of something else. I thought one staff should only take care of one passenger at a time. It showed unprofessional gesture. Btw I didn't get ckeck in email for my return flight to YYZ."
Cons: "The boarding gate for small aircraft is very far away from the terminal. There was not enough seating for all those waiting for flights"
Pros: "The check in was fast and easy, even was able to get a better seat. The cabin and seat were comfortable, the crew very nice. There wasn't any food which is never offered on thse shortish flights. Flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight. Just the passport control took a long time in Toronto, which is not the airlines problem."
Pros: "I liked the flight crew. They were very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Checking in my luggage was so slow. The inside of the airplane was dirty. I can still see some garbages on the sides of my chair. Food was not good at all and have very small portion . You have to pay $10 to rent an iPad which I think should be provided freely expecially if you're in a long flight. Overall, it was an uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "-very little leg room on rouge plane -do not own a device to watch movies etc -this is very exclusive and assumes that everyone has access to devices"
Pros: "When my food was late they refunded it"
Cons: "The boarding times were quite far behind The lack of TVs was unfortunate, and renting an ipad instead for more money is cheap."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth but then the flight was not full"
Cons: "The crew looked bored and surly. They missed giving me my pre ordered meal. When they finally found it it was given without the water bottle. I had to ask for tea twice only to be told that all hot beverages had been poured out."
Pros: "At least we had movies and a book."
Cons: "The checkin staff were not at there designated area on time and the flight was delayed for over an hour causing us to not be able to board our connecting flight from Toronto to Milan."
Cons: "They over sold the flight and we couldn't board the plane."
Pros: "Efficient flight got us there on time."
Cons: "Food was expensive."
Pros: "Loved the great GPS display."
Pros: "Everything was good, just a small plane... 2 seats on each side of the row and being tall, there just isn't room for my legs!"
Cons: "I booked this particular flight because it was the shortest route available. But the Air Canada flight from Dallas was delayed for an hour and then we experienced computer problems causing further delays. I therefore missed my connection in Toroto and was told by the ground staff I could only get out 2 days later. I was also told there were no hotels available. There were long lines of angry people complaining, and they were from different flights, One couple complained they missed 2 days of their honeymoon. The plane did have seats in business class which they refused to hand out. Eventually they found me a hotel and redirected me through Frankfort the next day. It turned out to be a 27 hour trip. Huge disappointment."
Pros: "Nice aircraft. Good direct flight without the hassle of a layover"
Cons: "Seat comfort not so good. The cabins a bit dated with the seats needing to be tightened."
Pros: "Movie options were decent. Good was good."
Cons: "More (new release) movie options would be better."
Pros: "Service, flight, food"
Cons: "Lost my luggage, two days before it was returned."
Pros: "I liked the cabin crew. They worked really hard with what little they have to work with."
Cons: "Old planes, aisles way too narrow and too long, made drink service take forever!! Dicey for a diabetic, even when I brought my own water on. Food was yuck. Plane smelled, but the bathrooms were stinky! Can't you put up a sign asking men to sit down?! Urine on the floor, as always. Window blinds were sticky. Will never fly Air Canada again if I have any other option!"
Flight was good. Regular economy seats not as crowded as some other airlines. Would fly United again.
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. The flight arrived early and that was great."
Cons: "It was a bit overcrowded and the internet was a bit spotty"
Cons: "The video on safety did not work"
Cons: "I know that flying isn’t what it once was when it comes to comfort and amenities, but good, polite, service seems to be vanishing as well."
Cons: "Give snacks"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 2 hours. Maintenance - While I understand that these things happen to tell the passengers that maintenance crew "can't find a screw" to fix some panelling on the plane seems rediculous. Then further delay the flight because the wrong luggage was loaded?"
Cons: "The uNited app could not stream video well. The connection was too slow. Too much buffering."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly"
Pros: "Great smooth boarding process, prompt flight, and helpful flight staff. Bathrooms were clean and convenient"
Cons: "As is typical for airplanes, uncomfortable seats and little space to maneuver into the isle."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Just waiting in line to get on a plane. Pretty easy."
Cons: "No problems with the flight from Dallas to Chicago. Very quick and easy flight. Chicago to Paris was a bad experience."
Pros: "I LIKE THE SERVICE ON BORD OF THE PLANE"
Pros: "Friendliness of Crew"
Cons: "Seat handles would not go all the way up. Did not make for enough room with an empty seat righ beside me."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "There was no free in-flight entertainment available on the tv screens. Half of the screens didn't work."
Pros: "the ERJ175 has nice leg room in coach."
Pros: "Emailing me with updates"
Pros: "Great follow up with texts messages on any delays."
Cons: "Everything was trerrible on this flight! We were delayed from our first connecting flight out to SF to LA and we're put on a different flight connecting to Houston to get us home sooner. We were told by the gentleman at the check in that our correct boarding passes with our seats sitting all together would be given to us at the boarding desk. That was the biggest mistake ever to take this flight because we were then delayed 3 more hrs! Not only that but when I approached the next gentleman at the boarding desk in Houston he was super rude! He was yelling at me when I told them that "they in Dallas,the worker at the check in" told me to get my boarding passes in Houston. He kept yelling saying "there was nothing he could do that he could do that he didn't know who THEY were but that I was talking to him now and that's why he is saying" I tried explaining to him that I just wanted to make sure I got in the right flight home because this is what I was told to do by the employee in Dallas. Not only that but our connecting flight to Houston was horrible! The flight attendant (the male) was very very rude!!! He also was yelling at my niece and nephew when we were trying to put the carry on bags in the compartment. And telling us we could have anything underneath the seat when clearly we could have our personal item underneath. Overall we had the worst experience with United and will never again fly with them! I understand delays may happen but there's no need for the employees to be so rude. so much for their customers service!"
Pros: "Easy check in. Flight crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "Cant turn it off. Want to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed both th way"
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour, but as little pick-me-up united offered free snacks and water to tide all the passengers over! So unusual to see, since generally it's just like "deal with it." Also the smaller plane was fast to board and de-board."
Cons: "Eh being delayed is always kind of annoying."
Pros: "Flight was wonderful!"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Entertainment options limited."
Pros: "Slept so can't complain."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Everything was great travel was a brezs"
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I fully understand that weather and accompanying delays are unpredictable at best. But to be updated every 30 minutes over what turned into a 3 hour wait was frustrating. I appreciated the updates, but I could have done lots of fun things if I'd known the time would end up being 3 hours. Maybe you could work on the accuracy of your delays and how long it will really take. The flight attendants seemed as though they didn't even want to be there."
Pros: "quick and landed on time"
Cons: "should serve a small breakfast item"
Pros: "Great flight. Flight attendants were great"
Pros: "Dallas flight was 1 hour delayed, United landed in terminal C (C115) in Newark, flight to Hartford departed in terminal A (A26). People were running to catch the Newark to Hartford gate on the other side of the airport. I am surprise United hasn't beeen sued for this lack of consideration to their customers. Luckily I was not in a wheelchair to run across to the other side of the airport due to United delay. I wonder how a United employee would feel if ithis happened to them and their children or disabled parents. Flying is already stressful enough, experiencing a flight delay and forcing people to run like cattles in an airport only pushes people to drive rather then fly."
Cons: "Try placing inbound and departure United planes in the same terminal instead on on the other side of an airport. If you delay a flight, the departure flight should be delayed too to allow customers a fair chance to get home. Not everyone can run like Husain Bolt in an airport. Consider your future customers."
Pros: "No good"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. This is not comfortable."
Pros: "The power outlets were a perfect way to be ready to arrive home. Great option of personal mobile device entertainment."
Cons: "No television on that flight."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled, so I can't say how the flight was. However, I can say that in my 20 years of travel, this was by far the worst, most stressful experience I have ever had. I was placed on 2 other flights with 2 other airlines and wasn't notified until AFTER I was already checking in with another airline (this is also after calling the airlines regarding the cancellation, several hours before heading to the airport). Worst experience. Do not recommend."
Cons: "TSA agaent at New Orlleans airport was very RUDE"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Pros: "The crew was very nice despite some rude passengers. They were some of the best crew I've ridden with in a while."
Cons: "We can't control weather, but I wish we were given more options when weather deferred our flight to a different airport."
Pros: "Enjoyed the overall experience of the flight to SFO."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 42 mins & this was an inconvenience."
Pros: "I didn't"
Cons: "United is worst that spirit"
Cons: "EXTREME LACK OF LEG ROOM"
Pros: "The only thing good about this experience is that I didn't go through it alone"
Cons: "I was stuck in DFW for over 10 hours, the staff was rude, ineffective and lacked customer service skills in general."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Now have to sleep in airport because connecting flight was missed. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Seats and leg room were acceptable for economy seats."
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work right on most devices. Finally got some of it to work on one cell phone."
Cons: "Although it did not happy to me personally, one of the flight attendants had a bit of an attitude towards several other passengers."
Pros: "Space boarding and flight"
