Cons: "No soap in bathroom stall. Told crew who tried to correct it but it was broken. Boo..."
Pros: "Half of the flight was empty. I asked of I could move to the row behind. I was told that was premium seating and I didn’t pay for that. I didn’t appreciate being addressed like that. And did ot really matter when nonoe is sitting there or plenty of other seats."
Cons: "She could have just let me sit there. I should have been told that the seat didn’t recline when the ticket was pirchase."
Pros: "I always enjoy Alaska but this was another level. I was horribly late and still processing at security with 10mins until take off and the guy at the gate called me to see where I was - gave me mins to make it - which I did - just.. I was traveling to San Diego to meet my family for the weekend - I would’ve been in severe trouble had I missed the flight. Thanks Alaska!!"
Pros: "Seats were decently comfy. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Delay Part not available"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No food offered but I usually don’t eat food but some passengers were asking about the food service"
Cons: "Paid for and reserved a premium seat 6 weeks before flight but got reassigned to a non-premium seat upon check-in. I had to call customer care for a refund of the premium upgrade. No more live TV unlike the old Virgin America."
Cons: "Flight was late!"
Pros: "First time with Alaska but from today on, me and my bf love Alaska Airlines!!"
Pros: "Leather seats"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Cons: "They cancelled my 5:30 pm flight and text me that they put me on a 6a.m. flight the next morning without offering me a hotel or anything. I had to make new arrangements myself and the only option was to fly out earlier in the day and lose a day of sightseeing and time with family that I made the trip for in the first place. I had to race to the airport to get there in time. It ruined our trip."
Pros: "TSA pre-cleared me so I didn't even have to take off my shoes and there wad no one else in line in front of me. Alaska Airlines has comfortable seats with lots of leg room. We didn't get fed but there were many choices of movies and t.v. shows to watch."
Pros: "Great entertainment system, great selection of movies. Comfortable and well kept up plane."
Cons: "Controls for entertainment system were often broken. Flight boarded late. Few vegan snacks available."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Our seats did not recline - this was a red-eye flight so not seats that do not recline is a problem. The plane was very cold and we kept our jackets on but it was still too cold. The flight attendant said it was warmer in the center of the plane. That's great for them but didn't help us since we were not seated in the middle."
Pros: "The crews spilled coffee on me and my purse.....made my LV bag so smelly"
Pros: "Crew was great, dealt with angry customers on delays well"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour due to booking too many on the same gate. And late planes"
Cons: "If there was a less than one star that is what they deserve. SFO flight was late. They gave away my seat on my connection to Kalispell. They basically blamed me for being late and not being there on time. Two others from my flight were allowed to make the connection but told me that they gave my seat away because I was late. We all showed up at the same time from the late flight. I talked to 3 people including customer service and did not get a single “I’m Sorry”. Do they not communicate with each other when a flight is late and they have passengers for connections running late? They told me they don’t talk. The best they can do is put me standby for 9:30 flight and if I cannot get on that flight I have to wait until morning. My daughter is in a competition tomorrow morning and thanks to Alaska Airlines I’m going to miss it. I’m sitting here writing this review, paying for a dinner I should not be paying for and probably searching out a hotel room until morning when I can catch a flight. Unbelievable the lack of empathy."
Pros: "Everything in Alaska’s control went great. The passengers not as much."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"
Pros: "The mood lighting on the plane."
Cons: "Not applicable; everything about this flight was great!"
Pros: "Like having movies to watch."
Pros: "There is nothing about this flight that my girlfriend and I liked. This was the worst experience with an airline either of us have ever experienced."
Cons: "We didn't like that we were delayed so long that we missed our connecting flight. We were delayed upwards of 3.5 hours and watched a flight going to the same place that was supposed depart 1 hour after us, and it left 30 minutes before us."
Pros: "Alaska is great as always and try to fly with them when traveling!"
Pros: "The airline offered food and drinks for free in spite of the low price, inwas pleasantly surprised"
Pros: "I really love the customer service , I make a phone call to update my flights and they were really helpful."
Pros: "A row of seats all to myself. On time departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Super polite and friendly crew."
Cons: "If I have to pick something, maybe the chatty woman behind me but that's not the Airlines fault."
Pros: "Real tray tables! A magazine! Power jacks!"
Cons: "Waiting for a gate agent so they could open the door in Seattle."
Cons: "1 hour delay. I asked. Front desk said it was due to sfo fog. Me: Isn't it 2017? They have radars now; I have flown from Boston under severe snow storms. Yes. I have."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "preferred a friendlier cabin staff, lousy in flight magazine, rushed service, good for airline cost wise, but will choose another carrier when flying to the Evergreen state ... Yes i will pay more for more, when flying we have a choices, you will NOT be mine $"
Cons: "Waiting in front of the gate for one and a half our after the initial boarding time in uncertainty. If the flight is delayed please tell us in advance, not let us hover around the boarding gate waiting and waiting."
Pros: "Easy flight. Boarding was fine and the crew were friendly enough. The steward didn't come and see me much and I think I had one little snack and one beverage."
Cons: "No entertainment but I didn't really expect it on such a short flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour due to maintenance. We finally boarded with good news that it would take us just an hour and twenty five minutes from SFO to SEA. But then there was another delay on the strip for an hour. Then the off boarding process was extremely slow as well. Was just felt like a very long night."
Pros: "There was a huge delay due to weather. The plane didn't take off until almost 2am, however the crew kept everyone up to date and did everything they could. Upon arrival I had an apology email from Alaska with a discount, this amazed me as usually airlines don't offer you anything when the delay isn't "mechanical", and even then you usually have to complain. I felt this made Alaska's customer service memorable as they went above and beyond."
Cons: "The seats were small and cramped."
Pros: "The two flight attendants in the aft cabin were an absolute delight.They made the flight a great experience."
Cons: "The captain announced we would arrive early in Seattle and we were in fact late."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "This flight was fine. It wasn't really anything to write home about - nobody went above and beyond; nothing was terrible. It could have been better, though. The flight actually landed a bit early, which was nice since it was a bit of a late flight."
Cons: "Pretzels. The in-flight snack was pretzels, which is innocuous and also super boring. Also, no entertainment to speak of."
Pros: "Good organization, good hygiene, polite crew."
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "The entire time there was a clogged bathroom smell coming in waves. The crew was forgetful of requests. Not a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding"
Cons: "Good taste perhaps...?"
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was very hot."
Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "The crews were very fast and efficient. The Dinner was good but the breakfast was very basic."
Cons: "The seat was so crammy and disgustingly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
Pros: "Seats are fine. Ordering system is up to date."
Cons: "After the first two hours of my flight (which I sleep through) I couldn’t buy a drink a soda or anything."

Pros: "That Tillamook cheese and fruit plate was nicely done. A pleasant surprise."
Cons: "We had to wait at the gate on arrival"
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Cons: "Didnt fly from San Francisco to Atlanta"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"
Pros: "The crew are very friendly, positive and have good sense of humor."
Cons: "The flight got delayed badly"

Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"
Cons: "Delta airlines has very poor costumer service. THE WORST I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I wasn't the only one feeling this way, I witness a couple people fighting on the phone like me. When my 1st flight was delayed I asked to be rebooked then and the delta employee insisted that I would make my connection. I didn't make it. This is not all. I could have gotten to a near city several hours after but on the same day, but the mediocrecy of this employes did not allow me to get there until the next day at 7 am. Happy new year to me. This two women (or one of them) on the phone, lied to me. There was an option to get me here and one of them failed to do their job right AND LIED TO MY FACE ON THE PHONE. Just unacceptable. I will sue them, I had an under age waiting for me in Cancun and a pet with me!. With no food or access to do its necessities. AND THERE WAS AN OPTION THAT "they missed" on porpuse."

Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Pros: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."
Cons: "I tried to get a seat and it was so hard, i couldn't do an online check in and once at the airport, no one could help me."
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "Quick boarding"

Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Cons: "After landing, we were waiting on the tarmac for sometime and I needed to use the restroom I was an allowed to do so. It would’ve taken me a short short time. I went to The rear of the plane to use the restroom and was told to get in my seat."
Pros: "Newest 787 plane in the fleet. Really comfortable seats and terrific in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was fine and we were very comfortable. This is because we were in Premium seats. The experience is entirely different in economy, which we did while flying the other direction."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Brand new plane."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Rush through US customs going down do to late flight held plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour which isnt horrible but then had to sit on the plane an additional hour waiting for take off. I barely made my connecting flight in Calgary.

Pros: "Easy access to website. Flight was great and crew was very accommodating, friendly and hospitable."

Pros: "I really appreciated the leg room that we had on all our flights. The seating was most comfortable. Staff most friendly."
Pros: "the connection time in Calgary was short, so overall the trip was verily quick. Generally, the flight was good, clean plane, good services."
Cons: "There was no food for sale on a 4 hour flight from Hamilton to Calgary the flight left at 6:30 a.m., meaning that one had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m., and for me leave where I was staying an hour before that. It was a connecting flight in Calgary with almost no time in the airport so I didn't get to eat until I arrived in Nanaimo at 1:15 p.m., Ontario time. for health reasons - I'm diabetic, I wish I had known that no "real" food was available. I got a snack which I read had 50 calories, and I got a juice which I normally won't drink to maintain blood sugar levels."
Pros: "Friendliest crew, good entertainment system. Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Desperately need a lounge facility in terminal 5 Chicago"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too small of a plane. Using twin props instead of jets.. Depends on the time of departure. You pay for preferred seating and get jammed into this de Havaland jumper plane. Noisy and then the gate is at the end of the old part of the Calgary airport. Having to board and get off the plane in rainy weather. How bush for both airports. Air Canada please come back to Abbotsford.!!!!Everything"

Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, and I am still trying to get to lax. All due to the pilots being too tired to fly, and due to maintenance. I would of appreciated checking into a hotel room a lot earlier than I did due to vague communication. I’m exhausted with only 2.5 hours of sleep."
Pros: "Great and welcoming crew."
Cons: "It would’ve been nice if we made it to fort Meyers!"
Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."

Cons: "The seat assignments based on loyalty status - rude gate agents"
Cons: "Delayed multiple tomes"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took off 40 minutes late, rude attendants, very hot on plane, no apologies from staff for being late. Worst flight in a long time."
Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."

Pros: "Staff were helpful."

Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."

Flight was delayed, connection was missed, Airline failed to follow Canadian Customs and Border rules which could of resulted in the loss of personal property, fine or possibly being arrested. Gates for departures were suddenly changed, and airline lost my clothing and a cased firearm. I have also lost a day of hunting with an outfitter to the tune of $875 per day. Think I’m upset, do not under any circumstances use this airline.

Pros: "Lovely staff, new plane, great entertainment options"
Pros: "Everyone was cordial"
Cons: "Entertainment system, especially the sound was poor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waiting for a plane to go that wasn’t ready to move, going for 2 rounds of de-icing when the 1st wore off, losing our place in line. Should have waited a little longer at 1st de-icing so we could have left in allotted time period (20 minutes after application). Also fairly certain we left Toronto Airport past the 20 minutes of 2nd de-icing. Which resulted in many passengers missing connection flights (myself included) with as much as a “We are sorry” from Air Canada. I know the weather was an issue, but wasn’t sole cause."

Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Just before boarding it was announced that there would be no hot water on board and passengers should try to run and get a coffee at the airport. 5 hour flight ahead. I didn't have free hand to carry a coffee on board.So no coffee or tea. Also no water in the bathrooms! All meals for purchase were not loaded so no veggies or any gluten free options for purchase. Wanted to buy Duty Free and was told that it wasn't loaded either for some reason. The cabin was a bit cool and after 4 hours of cold drinks I was a bit chilled and asked for a blanket only to discover that they only sell them to the passengers. Then I got the giggles as they thanked us for choosing Air Canada voted number one airline in North America. Hilarious!!!"
Pros: "Left 30 minutes late but made up time and arrived roughly 5 minutes off original time. Ample leg room in coach. Nobody in the seats in front. Crew pleasant. Quiet ride."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "movies"
Cons: "Since my flight was delayed from calgary I had to sleep overnight to catch a morning flight. To my inconvenience I had to wait to have my seat assigned at the gate. I asked the rep at the gate to please have an aisle seat but she asked me to wait as she will call my name for seat assignments later. As I waited like she called many names and not mine, i again reminded her that she didnt call mine and she then just gave me my boarding pass without even apologizing that shr had put me in a middle seat. I told her i cant sit im a middle seat i need am aisle because I go to the bathroom often. she coldly said. "no more aisle seats". bad experience with ground staff in general as this is not the first time."
Pros: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Cons: "Normal flight. Nothing exceptional."
Pros: "The plane was obviously newer and in good condition. Entertainment options were good. Window dimmers were a cool touch."
Cons: "Service from the crew was generally bad. For a 5 hour flight, we were offered one drink. We had to sit with our pile of trash for 2.5 hours before they collected it. Crew was grumpy and unpleasant. My baggage was damaged."
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ."
Pros: "It was smooth and great trip."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times. Flight was scheduled to take off at 1210 pm, delayed to 1510, delayed again to 1700 then delayed to 2110 and hen finally boarded at 2230 but the flight did not take off for an additional 2 hours making the total flight delay 12+ hours. My mom did not speak English and the staff at the boarding gate would not provide her a translator nor where they willing to talk to us over the phone to assist her. I understand that delays happen but the lack of assistance and multiple delays was alarming (with clear weather). Air Canada device over the phone was unprofessional as well when I called to discuss the lack of assistance we received."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "Missed scheduled flight from Toronto to Calgary. The staff at the desk in Toronto were most helpful and kind. A new boarding pass was printed for the next flight and she assured me that my checked luggage would accompany me from Toronto to Calgary. They also printed a boarding pass for my next flight to Lethbridge. On arrival in Calgary flight personnel ask all patrons to remain seated to allow those of us who had a connecting flight to depart first. I certainly appreciated this kind suggestion and it allowed me more time to reach my next departure gate."
Cons: "Prior to arriving at the desk I was anxious about missing the flight to Calgary and it was a very long trek in the airport and I had to clear customs and security."
Pros: "I arrived safely!"
Cons: "This was an AIR CANADA operated flight. Considerably less comfortable than the 3 LH operated legs of my recent trip to Kenya."
Cons: "Air Canada also bumped our flight to 3 hrs earlier."
Pros: "The 787 aircraft. What a beautiful plane"
Cons: "Calgary airport. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "very pleasant"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Boarding was very chaotic and our seats were originally booked together and someone needed up separate. In the end, the crew worked it out for us and we were satisfied."
Cons: "I've flown this airline a few times and the seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased"
Cons: "it was a horrible experience and i will never fly with air canada again. best of luck"
Pros: "Good leg room even is coach."
Pros: "Everything was as scheduled"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Wel,l my flight out of SFO was delayed by an hour and ~20 minutes, which was the length of my layover in Toronto. The pilot was able to make up some time in the air, but I still had to go through customs, security, and then run through most of the Toronto airport with only 25 minutes (before my flight left, probably even less because they close the doors before take off). I was off the plane at 7:30. My flight to Charlottetown was on-time, leaving at 7:55. The nicest male flight attendant on the plane moved me to a seat right before first class and put my carry-on in the closet at the front so I could be of the first off the plane! I ran through the airport, customs, security and all. I got to the gate at 7:41. The lady at the gate saw me running from far off and asked if I was Michelle. She was so happy that I had made it and let me catch me breath before I boarded. The delay on the first flight was very unfortunate and stress-inducing, but all the Air Canada people I interacted with along the way were very wonderful."
Cons: "The delay."
Cons: "Flight and hospitality"
Pros: "Flight crew including cockpit were kind, courteous, professional, appreciative and much appreciated."
Cons: "Ground crew - grouchy, uncooperative and down right unprofessional!!"
Cons: "LGA Gate #6 and #7 to cold, people were freezing. Also, those two gates are like cattle barn."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, and checkin was a breeze."
Pros: "Okay flight, nothing special."
Cons: "Food?"
Pros: "Seat space, leg room"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "We actually arrived alive."
Cons: "We arrived into London so late that we were forced to take a taxi at a huge expense. During the 3 hr delay the only food provided was a small bag of pretzels and water."
Cons: "Traveling with 2 adults, a 3 year old and 1 year old, we had to ask to get our seats next to each other's for each flight at the desk. For both our family and other passenger it would make more sense to get that covered beforehand."
Cons: "The crew member on ground were very rude."
Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
Cons: "First flight: My headphones didn't work with the entertainment system and the only other option to watch what was on the tv was to purchase headphones. Also, the movie skeleton was somewhat limited. Also, it was a longer flight but there was no free food option"
Pros: "Food has to be paid for on board- and the quality is not that great. Friendly staff willing to please"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost an hour from Calgary to Toronto (technical - computer issue). On the return flight from Toronto, the flight was also delayed (seat issue)."
