Pros: "Great crew, at the gate and onboard."

Pros: "Flight was 15 min early."
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty, chocolate on the one next to me and carpet had stuff on it."

More on that in my next flight review."
Pros: "Comfort,service , and plane all great !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Alaska's boarding/deplaning procedure is slow and inefficient."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the captain's message over the speaker....he either had an accent or the reception was terrible."
Pros: "I like the seats - the headrests wrapped around. That was good."
Cons: "They KNEW there wouldnt b enough room for the overhead luggage, so they offered to check bags for free. This is wrong: people bring overhead luggage because it won't check or cant check. It seems wrong to offer to check it because they already know its not all going to fit. also, the Alaska boarding procedure is really messed up, compared to Southwest which always runs smoothly."
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Need to start earlier with pre boarding. This caused a back up bcz an elderly couple had not pre boarded earlier. They were very frail and needed a lot of help. Perhaps they cannot hear the announcement. Keep them close to the gate. Food is pricy, poor variety, and skimpy"
Pros: "Fantastic crew and service"
Cons: "Very rough landing"
Pros: "Flight was great. Crew were very polite"
Cons: "Probably had nothing to do with airline but I left a bag in car, my fault but had problems reaching the car rental field office. I tried contacted within a hour to no avail. Not until the next morning did they answer the phone. Can u please help. Payless car # 40278755. Oakland drop off. Johnny Templet 985-518-3949"

Cons: "Free TV shoes were extremely limited. Virtually nothing complimentary to watch for 5 hours"
Pros: "they were very friendly and funny :)"
Pros: "I fly this route regularly and Alaska is my first choice - the service is good, and everyone gets a celebratory drink prior to landing in the Islands. I will often upgrade to 1st class, and that is so worth it. I arrive at my destination after 5 hours feeling relaxed and able to jump right into the new environment."
Cons: "In 1st class - no complaints whatsoever. In coach - the usual: seats small, cramped, packed in with hundreds of other human beings, just waiting for it to be over. What a difference between the two!"
Cons: "Two stews, one wm slightly balding down right rude to several passengers and in particular another traveler with a service dog. Argued with man with service dog and failed to understand that "service dog" was not some pet. We attempted to assist other flyer and he was rude, bossy, and nearly insolent to us ... he finally to it but needs for re-training for him pretty darned important. One blondish wm stew with long page-boy like hair cut also verged on rudeness through her inability to hear, understand and desire to chant rules rather than to hear what was actually happening ... both of them more than mildly disappointing. Other two stews fine but seemed to want to stay out of way of the two rude ones."
Cons: "Horribly slow, poorly conducted."
Pros: "Very on time flight. Not strict with baggage."
Pros: "The crew was very good & accommodating. The seating was terrible and even though we were required to purchase it they ran out. It was the first time I have ever been UNHAPPY on an Alaska flight and I have been on many."
Pros: "They were totally on time. They were very friendly they were very professional and helpful. I like the fact that you can watch movies from their Wi-Fi for free on your phone. I also like the fact that there's an outlet at every seat so you can charge your phone and laptop. Much cleaner and more comfortable than most other airlines. Really my first time flying them I was impressed."
Cons: "I wish they had offered headset so that I can actually listen to the movies if they offer for free on your phone."
Cons: "The flight attendant was TERRIBLE. She basically shamed me for having a beer in the morning. I'm a nervous flier and I thought it would help settle my nerves. I was at the very back of the plane and unfortunately could hear Everything she had to say. All the other flights were fine. I was just telling my friend about her today. Very disappointing. It was my first time flying Alaska airlines. I would not recommend them."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Good snacks"

Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."

Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Cons: "On time, free upgrade."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."

Pros: "The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with."
Pros: "On time as scheduled."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early."
Cons: "Smallest bathroom on a plane I've ever seen. Could barely sit down without my knees banging into door or wall."
Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"
Cons: "..but the multiple delays are ridiculous, I would not fly Delta if I had a feasible choice."

Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."
Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "Gate agent arranged flight via Salt Lake City and also gave me $15 lunch coupon for my troubles. She was awesome!"
Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "Just not enough room to accommodate that many people for such a long flight. And felt neglected and grouchy by the end of the trip."
Pros: "Ability to change planes with a 30 minute layover."
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
