Pros: "The crew were great, security at the airport took over an hour to get through so I arrived at the gate 10minsbefire takeoff. The crew were great in getting me on board and checking my luggage was still there t"

Cons: "I don't like the fact that the clean-up crew cam on board while we were trying to exit the plane. It took about 30 minutes because the crew was trying to clean. I will never fly Alaskan Airlines again because of this."

Cons: "On bag should be free!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Arrived earlier. Good accommodations."

Pros: "By far and away the kindest domestic service professional musicians and their unique flying requirements-thank Y'all for being so kind!"

Pros: "Wine flys free is amazing!!!"

Pros: "Stewardess very helpful and welcoming."

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."

Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The prices were decent and the personnel at the airport check in counter were friendly and helpful. The flight was short but it was nice to have the seat-back chargers to recharge my phone."
Cons: "The onboard crew seed a little stiff. They were very selective - the two flight attendants in first class & coach - with whom they greeted good morning / hello. I watched this from my seat in disappointment. I needed to ask for a seat extender as I'm currently recovering from surgery and needed a little room around the bandages and I had to ask several times even though there was not a lot of pre-flight activity. They were standing around in the aisle. I make note of this type of behavior because I fly frequently for work on a variety of airlines and this is my first experience with Alaska Air."

Pros: "I was checking in in a fluster and trying to attach my bag tags. A agent came over and helped me (for some reason I had taken the entire sticky back off ha!) and then he took my bag for me right from the kiosk. I was super impressed"

Pros: "Liked the self-print station for bag tags and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding was not good;they delayed the flight, then returned it to our original time without changing the flight board. Then they stopped us in the middle of boarding to say there was a problem with the plane without giving an estimate of how long. We got to board again 10 minutes later."
