Excellent 8.3

Pros: The crew was great, and the free movie selection was outstanding. Because the flight was full, they let me check my carry-on bag for free.

Cons: They ran out of the meal I would have ordered.

Excellent 8.0

Cons: Customer needs better control over their seat assignments.

SAN
PAE
Good 6.0

Pros: Great legroom

Cons: A crew member apparently thought I wasn’t throwing my trash away quickly enough, so he very roughly reached through my legs to get it. It was super inappropriate and made me feel really uncomfortable. He should be reprimanded. Makes me feel unsafe flying on Alaska.

SEA
CHS
Excellent 9.6

Pros: Flight rough as we passed over major storm. Great landing at CHS in a stiff wind and we were 20 minutes early!

DAL
SJC
Excellent 9.3

Pros: The flight was quick and arrived earlier than expected. Great selection of movies to watch.

Cons: Paying extra when offered to fly premium I took the offer. Extra space was not bad but the seats weren't that comfortable given the extra amount I was paying.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
