Pros: "Its a short trip, no doing for food or entertainment"

Pros: "Food vouchers."
Cons: "Being delayed almost 3 hours and getting in after 1 am."

Pros: "Apparently mechanical problems early in the day put our jet 89 min behind, but all involved worked the magic to achieve only a 60 minute late arrival. Loved the sparkling water (she was kind enough to make mine vegan even : - )."
Cons: "Late start and long taxi and long bus rides. BUT, the conversation with the new found friend was off the chain. I'm cool with the Sonoma means a taxi and bus portion - worth the fare."

Cons: "I had booked my flight to take off at 2:30 PM, but when I checked into London Gatwick, my boarding pass given was 7:30 PM. Of course there's no Alaska desk so I couldn't ask anyone there. When I got to Vancouver, they said they weren't sure why I was bumped, but there were seats left on the plane. However, I had to go to the gate to change my flight because I had a checked bag. Got to the gate, and of course, it was sold out. And they told me they weren't sure if the 7:30 PM flight would be taking off. So I grabbed my bags, made my way via train/bus/hitchhiking across the American border where my dad picked me up. Never got a single reason why I was bumped in the first place."

Pros: "I liked it all"

Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Friendly"

Pros: "Coffee Starbucks"
Cons: "Passenger seat 25D was swearing all the time"

Pros: "on time, somewhat"
Cons: "very cramped seats; are my husband and I profiled on airline flights? why are we always placed exactly over the wings or in the rear of the plane, with all the babies? we are senior citizens and flying three to five hours with babies crying all around us is not a pleasant flight. So we up graded to first class on this return flight. Is that the only way to get out of being profiled to sit in the rear of the plane with the crying for three hours?"

Pros: "The flight was thankfully very short!"
Cons: "Crappy service, slow boarding, lack of control of boarding passengers at gate, plane was not as clean as normally expect for this airline."

Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."

Pros: "The crew was super nice, from when we boarded the plane to when we got off. (:"

Cons: "We had to wait over 2 hours delayed our flight claimed it was mechanical reasons then change it saying it was paperwork they need to do so we would be able to make the flight wasted almost 3 hours I was sleeping the crew wakes me up for drinks like really !!bad experience!!!!"

Pros: "Air travel in the US is a disaster. People are cattle. Food is overpriced. Some airlines have policies that out to be criminal in how passengers are treated. The good news is Alaska and just a few other smaller airlines are far less terrible than the rest of the industry. The product is still cramped, unapitizing and not always smooth... but the crew is consistnetly awesome... and their policies are customer friendly"
Cons: "Selling the credit card on every flight for 15 minutes is torture. Force feeding us an informercial once is more than enough but if you have a round trip with connections it is 4 times. I was considering it but by the 4th time I was too annoyed to ever get your credit card"

Pros: "The crew and the service"
Cons: "The 30 min delay in takeoff"

Pros: "Service, nice plan and easy ride to Honolulu."

Cons: "Seating pitch is just not acceptable for 10+ hrs long flight! I am tall (1.92 cm) but there are taller people than me and there is just no way they can sit in economy class seat! That is basically some kind of racism.."

Pros: "good flight, inflight menu and movie library"
Cons: "rude bag drop off kiosk"

Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."

Pros: "Service by crew. I was flying economy but it was par to business class."

Cons: "Compared to Virhin Australia crew, Delta staff seem almost poorly trained in comparison. For example, Drlta crew don’t check your pass, don’t immediately move down the aisle to move along tourists busy discussing their seats and then line up for Boarding seems chaotic at best."

Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."

Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"

Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"

Cons: "Delayed due to problem with the door"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."

Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"

Pros: "Excellent service, God flight"

Pros: "The one good thing about this unexplained ordeal (the flight was delayed for 5 hours, causing me to miss my connection) was that, after a few hours of hearing nothing (no emails or texts from Delta), I finally saw some options for different flights pop up, so I was able to book a new flight without calling India. Also, I got an exit row seat on my new flight to MSP."
Cons: "They moved our gate about six times and never told us why the flight was delayed. Actually, the biggest annoyance was that Delta told us nothing. The only reason I knew about the delay and gate changes was because of Kayak! I know I am signed up to receive texts and emails from them, but I guess they forgot to notify me."

Pros: "Very friendly crew. Good seating"
Cons: "V limited complimentary food for long haul flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Always delays with this airline, hope their service improves now they have been bought out by Air Canada. Staff need training on how to deal with their delays, rather than the "I know as much as you" answer. Their staff have always pleaded blind ignorance when disruptions occur. AVOID."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The night skyline from above as you fly into LAX is simply awe inspiring with the miles and miles of lights everywhere you look. Quick flight and no hassles."

Cons: "gate change last minute"

At some point crew decided she should not fly to LA, but the ladies wouldn’t get off plane! 45 minutes later and 4 RCMP show up to escort them off plane. Then we didn’t have any ground crew to get us off loading ramp. Finally got away 90 minutes or more after scheduled departure.

Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "On time Flight. Nice and friendly staff. Assistant at the check in Kiosk."
Cons: "Inattentive baggage security and check personnel."

Pros: "Boarding and flight attendants."
Cons: "Not enough food selection"

Pros: "Smiling faces and humor from the crews."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Good in flight entertainment and food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Cons: "Yea missed the connection due to taking an obviously not sick young woman off flight from Jamaica I am a doctor"

Cons: "snow caused my flight to be cancelled instead of the direct flight to nyc i flew via Atlanta. due to the timings of the flight - landing at 2.30 am, leaving at 7.30 am - i had no option but to sleep on the airport floor i will try to avoid fliying with westjet in future - staying loyal to air canada - to avoid the risk of such a terrible flight diversion"

Pros: "THE flight got me home"
Cons: "Th check in staff made light of what seat I was assigned stating it was the best seat. 23A a bulkhead back row seat that did not recline. I was then Seated next to an individual that should have had two seats to themselves instead of most of my seat and theirs. I was literally pressed into the bulkhead by the very large person next to me. Who had another large individual next to them. WestJet used to be a great airline that Had a little more legroom. Now airlines like flair offer the same flights with more legroom wider seats and far lower costs. WestJet has lost me as a customer that used to pay a little extra if There was a WestJet flight option"

Cons: "Nothing, one of my best flights ever."

Pros: "My flight with Qantas was late and I missed the flight, they refused to move me to a later flight even though I had a paid ticket!"

Cons: "Seat was broken. Reclines without requesting. Tray also needs attention. Seat 15C"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"

Cons: "Generally, it was just good."

Pros: "Stress free trip - fine all round"
Cons: "Auto check in wouldn’t recognise passport (YET AGAIN- and not only mine)! Was seated to rear of aircraft and coffee trolly didn’t get to me before ‘seatbelts fastened for landing’ announcement.."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the crew was friendly"

Pros: "Fast boarding with group number priority"
Cons: "No complementary rescteshments. You had to pay and only pay by card."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was 21 years old and showed every minute of its 21 years. Economy class is very bunched. On board food was average at best"

Pros: "Virtually nothing, even in Club Europe."
Cons: "Crowded cabin, uncomfortable seat pitch, anarchic boarding (even for Club), lousy food and that ghastly safety video."

Pros: "Everything went like clockwork. Great service and flight."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "As always no issues at all, I reserved my seats early to get extra leg room which is always great. Fast boarding and a quick flight, having been on a long haul flight a few hours before I needed this to get home."

Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quick check in online, efficient auto bag check with helpful staff available, Quick efficient boarding, quiet flight less than half full."
Cons: "Being bumped to an earlier flight (7:15 from 11:20), not sure that was BA or the booking agent, but caused alteration of plans and hotel being booked."

Pros: "The drew were helpful"
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac. No vegan meals."

Pros: "The service and the entire crew were outstanding"

Pros: "When i booked on kayak was from 8th August to 18th August when BA booked 8th August to 18th September it cost me extra to come back on monday 20th August £ 1400 extra"

Pros: "It has to be said, the prices were good. But you do get what you pay for...… (in my case, a lot of extra time and stress)"
Cons: "Firstly Kayak is apparently actually LastMinute.Com? BA flight was OK, but not much different from a low-cost airline. Return leg had to be Ryanair and online check-in didn't work (ouch! - you have to pay extra to check in at the airport). I eventually found out (after frantic googling) that Kayak auto-generates an email address for you as part of the Ryanair booking process, and this is the one you need. I spent about 30 mins getting through to LM.Com overseas helpdesk trying to get hold of it. I also had to request hold baggage as a separate process and it took 10 days to confirm this had been arranged (again, I would have had to pay extra at the airport)."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being delayed for 2.5 hours wasn’t pleasant. Once we finally boarded the crew members did apologise in person to all first class customers. I was sitting with my granddaughter right behind it. We felt like a second category customers.... nothing to add to it it shows it all"

Pros: "New plane and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "Had to pay for any food and drinks. No entertainment but very short flight."

Pros: "Great!!!"

Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."

Cons: "They kicked me off the flight and I missed my husbands performance"

Pros: "I liked that we landed 30 minutes in advance for both flights to and back, compared to the other parallel flight via SAA which was delayed 2 hours when we arrived back."
Cons: "I didn't like the cheese roll I asked for as the whole roll and cheese was literally stuck to the bottom and parts of the bottom of the roll were mushy. The staff were professional but lacked personality and seemed a little hollow."

Cons: "The staff would not accept cash for the food and drinks, I didn’t have any so had to stay thirsty"

Pros: "Entertainment was a little better than usual, but could have had more current movies. Food was OK. Nothing special, but more than acceptable. I like the ice cream. Although we had a late start, we got to San Francisco pretty much on time."
Cons: "I don't like being scrunched in a little seat for 10 or 11 hours, but then I am not willing to pay for a bigger seat and more leg room."

Cons: "My flight never happened due to the cancellation."

Pros: "Great crew, very friendly"
Cons: "Prior to departure, we were told to check in our carry-on luggage due to flight overbooking..... Turned out that there were lots of overhead compartments/bins were totally empty. We were not prepared for that so cluld not pack personal items accordingly"

Pros: "flawless flight, pleasant captain, friendly crew, free drinks, better than average food, enough food, toilet rooms not crowded, entertainment as good as can be expected, charging stations, reclining seats to the extreme"
Cons: "music could have more variety. window shade jammed... could not close, light broken, impossible to extricate oneself from seats due to reclined seats in front."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Outstanding service"
Cons: "Down onevtoilet from get go was unfortunate but not a big deal until both toilets on our side were out.."

Cons: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"

Pros: "This flight the only bonus was I actually had a seat."
Cons: "Two flight attendants to service the whole of Euro class meant waiting nearly two hours to be served a bottle of water and a sandwich. Too much time is lost trying to cook food and take the money. Just add £5 to every ticket and give the food as part of the service, you are not a budget airline Plus dont rub our noses in it by bringing meals from the first class galley to feed the crew at the rear of the plane."

Pros: "It got me to where needed to get to. First flight in 12 months that wasn’t delayed."
Cons: "Poor value for money. The food & drink selection (that you have to pay for) is abysmal. UK Border is a joke, 20+ passport desks but only 2 are ever occupied, ePassport gate DOESNT work (won’t eork if you have kids). Zero f**ks given. #BrexitBritain #BrokenBritain"

Pros: "Great service, easy travel from Heathrow Terminal 5."
Cons: "Shame the complimentary drinks have gone, sign of the economic times."

Pros: "Smooth & efficient"
Cons: "That you’ve to pay for everything including water"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system"

Cons: "Poor service from the customer service phone line. Pure waste of time. Couldn't help with simple questions about checking in...Sad"

Pros: "Lie flat bed"
Cons: "Non-A380 plane feels very old now and in need of an overhaul. My biggest complaint was the food. On the outbound leg (SFO-LHR) I had the pasta dish which was dry and poorly cooked so on the return flight I opted for the beef dish which was ok. I thought that the pasta was just a one-off issue. When the pre-landing meal arrived, it was so bad I had to look at the menu to see what it was (pea mousse with artichoke and almonds). It was completely inedible. Finally the amenities bag consisted of hand cream, face lotion and lip balm as well as the std toothpaste, socks, eyeshades etc. in the past there were far more items in the bag. Overall it feels like BA has cut costs and I had a reasonable deal on my flight price which I was willing to pay just to have a lie flat bed. I can't imagine if I paid $5K for this flight and had the same experience. I recently flew Emirates from SFO to Dubai in business class and it was comparable to first class in BA."

Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"

Cons: "The online check in didn't work. At the airport at check-in I had to wait 15 min to get a boarding pass and a seat allocated as there weren't any available as the company oversells tickets.. that's what they said to me at check in.. When boarding I was told that I needed to check-in my cabinet bag because of the crowded flight, the lady just put a label on the handle of my trolley and said to leave the bag down on my way to the plane.. Thing which of course didn't do... very bad service.. I'll keep traveling with easyJet and reconsider British airways only for a super cheap flight."

Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"

Pros: "Its just the sane as any standard budget airline service - you get exactly what you pay for nothing more nothing less"
Cons: "Planes could do with an upgrade - it'd be nice to have charging ports for USB seeing as no entertainment is provided or available onboard"

Pros: "Routine departure"
Cons: "Booked emergency exit for legroom but did not get it due to full flight."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"

Pros: "The crew were professional and helpful. The movie selection was great. I like the flight tracking 3D feature."
Cons: "The seats provide very little legroom."

Pros: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"

Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
