She helped me get booked on a flight that would arrive in time and was so comforting! In fact, all employees that evening were so helpful. Even when the engine wouldn't start on connecting flight in Seattle and we had to return to gate, delaying flight quite a while,?Captain kept us well informed of what was going on and was very apologetic and very quickly, Alaska airlines sent me an email with a credit towards another flight because of the inconvenience!! THANK YOU Alaska Airline, Taeao and employees working on the evening of June 20 at HNL!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful. Flight on time."

Pros: "The first-class flight attendants would sometimes help the main cabin passengers and were generally in a better attitude and much more helpful."
Cons: "The plane was changed and my "Premium" seat was downgraded. The seats were uncomfortable and much too cramped. I paid $89 extra for premium seating, and when cancelled upon, was only offered a $25 credit for future travel plans. Since I cannot count on Alaska, I'm not sure how soon my "future," travel plans will be ..."
Pros: "flight was good and on time"
Cons: "in flight entertainment ok but cant use it with out apps that you cant"
Pros: "I liked the fact that I could charge my mobile device in flight. I also liked the fact that there were allergy-sensitive menu choices. Menu prices were OK, about the same that I could buy from a restaurant in Honolulu."
Cons: "I didn't know that in order to watch the entertainment, you need to download an app first. I also didn't know that you could reserve meals beforehand. Happily, that wasn't an issue; the only thing I was interested in eating was still available when they got to me, even tho I was sitting at the very back of the plane. The meal was not delicious."
Pros: "-The tablet entertainment option was great since there was no inseat entertainment. The cost of of the tablet was cheap and allowed you access to everything, which is different from other airline a-la-carte purchasing of different entertainment. -Crew was great, food/beverage service was also great."
Cons: "-At HNL there was poor signage to get from the rental car return to the airline. Once we got into the terminal it really wasn't clear if we should go left or right, We wound up asking an American employee where Alaska was. -After the checked bag agriculture inspection it was not clear that you go to the kiosks there right after the inspection. I think it partially wasn't clear because there were multiple large groups traveling with tons of luggage and you go straight to the kiosks and then back track to hand over your checked bag. The line for checking the bag vs needing help wasn't clear either. Luckily there were Alaska employee's there helping at the kiosks and with the bag checking so it did go smooth but could definitely be better."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Flight on time"
Cons: "Alaska has scaled back seats, not as comfortable as Hawaiian. No meal included even on the long flight to Hawaii. Hawaiian has a meal and seats seem to be more roomy in coach. I am not a big person and o thought it was more cramped than my Hawaiian Coach seating."
Pros: "It was on time and 30 minutes early to our destination!"
Pros: "Comfort,service , and plane all great !"
Pros: "Left early, arrived early"
Cons: "Tell me about the entertainment software before we get to the airport."
Pros: "The boarding process was unhurried and they offered free checked bags to keep the overhead storage from overflowing."
Cons: "The noise level in the cabin was high. I'm glad that I have Bose noise-cancelling headphones."
Pros: "Flight attendants, mai tai."
Cons: "Late plane"
Pros: "It was a little confusing beacause your brochure said I would have free Wifi so I didn't rent your tablets. A half hour later I realized the wifi doesn't actually work, so I missed out on renting your tablets to watch something. I think there should be a less confusing system. This is more of an Alaska Airlines gripe though."
Cons: "Cramped really hot felt like a sardine for 5 hours. will not fly alaska"
Pros: "Flight personnel were focused and expedient. We arrived on time."
Cons: "First time flying Alaska outside of the Mainland. For a five hour flight, surprised there were no complementary meal service. Only beverage cart services. Flying five hours to Maui, Hawaii is a bit different than a 1 hour flight to Portland or Seattle. Price of Alaska economy ticket no less than their next competitor (i.e., Hawaiian Air, etc.) on the same flight route offering meal service. May want to rethink pricing model?"
Pros: "leg room on premier seats. Entertainment had big variety and high quality."
Cons: "No food on 5 hour flight unless you pay"
Pros: "Loved the charging ports in premium economy;"
Cons: "didn't realize you needed a download for entertainment until I was on the plane, and no wifi from Hawaii, so that was a wash... maybe send an email or something to remind before the flight?"
Cons: "Two days before flight online seating chart showed no seats available that were together in main cabin so I bought "economy plus" seats. There were actually 32 empty seats in economy, many people had while rows to themselves. What a ripoff."

Pros: "Flight was safe and generally comfortable. Staff was kind and helpful. Baggage was available for pickup ver quickly."
Cons: "Baggage looked dirty at pickup, so something was probably on one of the conveyors to cause this. Flight was a little late, but not a significant issue."
Pros: "Great flight, on time"
Pros: "The juice offered for the short flight was welcome."
Cons: "Traveling partner did not have a seat assigned at check in, and even though we got to the gate an hour before boarding and asked to be able to sit together, either they forgot or were unable to make it happen. Seats assigned at checkin seem standard now, so not having one is unsettling."
Pros: "It is a 25 minute flight. It takes about 45 minutes of standing in line and shuffling around the overhead luggage before the flight takes off. So the flight is late. And gets to Kahului more than a half hour late. Then it takes 45 minutes to get the luggage. And since there is really no competition, Hawaiian Airlines couldn’t care less."

Pros: "The staff at the terminal and on the plane were awesome!! The plane was roomy compared to the bigger airlines. Didn't feel like I was in a sardine can. Would HIGHLY recommend this airline!"
Pros: "that it was quick"
Cons: "seats are not that comfortable"

Pros: "The crew and the food"
Pros: "Boarding and other process was straightforward"
Cons: "Charged extra for luggage"
Pros: "Seating space was good when the person in front of you didn't recline. Crew was nice and boarding was easy. Like the flow of the Airbus. Food was airline food. Like the wine with dinner and the welcome drink to Hauwaii."
Cons: "The seating was good but allows the seat in front of you to recline to far. Some recline is fine but theirs is too much leaving you unable to fully use your tray, and if the entertainment was decent, to watch it. Entertain was very disappointing. Paying for entertainment on a 5 hour flight that has lots of families is ridiculous. Already have to pay for luggage and seat upgrades. They make having meal a big deal but when you don't offer any entertainment and no wifi and for what yo u pay for a ticket is very disappointing."
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "No advanced facilitation of handicapped passengers online or at boarding. Preboarding announcement did not allow handicapoed passengers time to preboard"

Pros: "Feel comfortable, secure and like the customer service of all the staff surely recommend it to some friends and relatives of mine,"
Cons: "Small tray table - not practical for working on"
Pros: "The ground crew and flight crew were great."
Cons: "Would have appreciated easier steps (lower risers) for boarding. Arthritic knee makes it hard for me to manage the high risers between steps. Also having armrests would have made the flight more comfortable."
Pros: "I loved the small craft and easy boarding."
Cons: "Flight is a little slower with a smaller plane, but that was expected."
Pros: "The easy quick comfort"
Pros: "So fast and friendly crew. So much easier to fly to Morgantown, instead of driving. Plus the views from above are so great."

Cons: "No cons"
Pros: "No TSA!!!"
Pros: "Exactly what I needed, decently priced flight to save hours of drive-time and minimal headache. Yep - smaller plane, smaller airport but anyone not knowing that will be shocked by many other facts in life. Friendly staffers on sire as well as in the cockpit. Well pleased!"
Pros: "No long lines. Easy to talk with pilots. If you make it, your baggage will make it!"
Cons: "Small plane is a little more subject to bumps and turbulence."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight for no reason at all."
Pros: "I was so upset, tired of being lied to and running through airports to make a connecting flight, I can't think of anything I liked."
Cons: "Since I bought my tickets through Kayak, when my flight was canceled the night before I was to leave, it took Hours to get the ticket problem straightened out with me on an earlier flight. I was called back by Kayak minutes after I finally got off the phone to be told That flight was now canceled. Another hour on the phone to get to a 3rd flight arranged. I arrived early and saw everyone sitting around, went to the counter to be told this flight was now delayed. Also was told that the EARLIER Flight I had been changed to, Went off on Time! So I was Lied to. Waited hours as they moved the departure time 4 times! Went through an agonizing security search. Took an hour in a freezing plane to get to Pittsburgh. Missed my flight OF Course and had to pay money for a ticket change and go stand by, barely getting on a connecting flight. I call it the Travel Day From Hell!!!"
Pros: "Not being a person that likes flying this was the coolest experience I ever had. All I had on my mined was to get to Pittsburgh to see my daughter. Didn't know what to expect when I got to Lancaster but it was really easy. I'm going to do it again. Hour and a half plan ride is better then 15 hour drive"
Cons: "Really can't think of anything. I should up 2 hours early to figure out what I need to do and everyone from southern airlines and the TSA took care of everything."
Cons: "The flight never occurred and wasn't told."
Cons: "Return flight home was cancelled and not communicated. Poor customer service to find out about a refund. Never flying with southern again."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "I had this airline booked several times (4 flights to be exact) and every. single. time. the flight was either cancelled or changed in some way. In the first instance, the second leg was moved three hours ahead, causing the second leg to depart before the first one, so I had to cancel it. In the second, the first leg was moved three hours before the initial departure time, and I had to cancel it due to scheduling issues. The third time I tried to take this airline, the first leg was cancelled completely and in turn my return flight was also cancelled. Each time, they informed be THE NIGHT BEFORE the flight was supposed to leave that it was either cancelled or modified. Had I not booked all four of these flights at once months in advance, I wouldn't have booked it again after the first instance. Do you know how expensive it is to find alternate transportation THE NIGHT BEFORE you are trying to travel? I will never attempt to fly this airline again. They have a lot of work to do to gain the trust of their passengers and they are not doing it right by any means in my opinion."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "I never even took the flight - the layover was moved ahead by two hours THE DAY OF THE FLIGHT causing me to cancel my flight, since the layover was then leaving before my first flight even took off! At that time, alternate flights were >$250 one way and I HAD to be at my destination the next day for a wedding. Southern Airways caused me hours of time spent planning and additional money to find alternate transportation. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND -- I am never flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "Received full refund for ticket."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no reason provided."
Pros: "The price of the ticket was very reasonable."
Cons: "I traveled with a colleague from Dulles to Morgantown. Three issues arose: 1. We could not find the ticket counter at Dulles, and no one we asked knew where it was. This could easily be resolved by adding info about how to find the counter to the airline website. 2. My colleague's return flight was canceled and she was never notified. 3. When I went to check in for my return flight, I was told that I was not on the boarding list. It took 30 minutes to get me added to the list even though I had my confirmation. When I asked for an explanation the man at the ticket counter shared: "They're crazy [the customer service]. This happens all the time." Complete incompetence."
Pros: "Great Crew, very pleasant. It was nice to be away from all the frustrations common in the main airports and to get to wait with my family right up to boarding time."
Cons: "The plane left over 4 hours after departure time. It also took a while to figure out that this airline is not based within the main airport (at both DFW and MEM airports at least) and the address for the actual boarding place was not included in any communication prior to the flight. No compensation for inconveniences caused."
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly"
Cons: "I was the only person on the flight. That was kinda weird. But it was a smooth, easy flight and I would definitely use them again."
Pros: "I just loved Southern. It was so easy. I avoided the hassle of the main airport, the parking problems and the waiting in line. Everyone was so friendly. I will definitely fly Southern again!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and comforting. I was nervous because it was my first time on a 9 seater plane but the ride was surprisingly smooth"
Cons: "I never even ended up on the plane. The departure time came and went with no communication from the desk agents I was sitting 10 feet away from. No communication about the flight being delayed was given until I asked. It was 3 hours later when they unceremoniously cancelled the flight. And because it was weather-related I didn't receive any of my money back. Worst travel day ever."
Pros: "PERSONAL TREATMENT!"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled No apology or compensation"
