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.

Good 7.0

Pros: They have been on time for most flights

Cons: They never have enough room for my carry on even though I pack light. Also I always board in group D no matter if I have an aisle seat in the back or a window in the front.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: I like people who work for Alaska they try they best are very professional and polite.

Cons: I travel from Hawai to New York with a laid over in San Francisco In the airplane around 6 hrs fly the offer only one time drinks. Went I check my luggage in HNL they tell me will go all the way to JFK airport , went I was in San Francisco they call me to pick up luggage because they don’t sent to New York. Went we arrive to San Francisco airport they delay fly for 3 hrs I have a hotel in NY to sleep for 5 hrs before I pick up rental car and start to drive to my next trip . I lost my hotel reservation, again only one time they offer drinks and food was not good in airplane .

Excellent 9.5

Pros: Crew was funny. Was offered water to drink many time throughout the long flight.

Cons: Just sore from sitting for so long in a cramped position, felt roomier that other airlines.

SFO
JFK
Good 6.3

Pros: Boarding was quick, uneventful. Standard issue, the passengers were on their own to stow bags, get seated...even as crew was requesting that bags be turned on their sides like a book to provide as much room as possible. Then please go through the cabin and assist. Otherwise it was fine because no one has anything approaching expectations these days.

Cons: This plane was older, smaller and less comfortable than the one we flew from JFK to SFO. For 5 plus hours it wasn’t the most inviting. At landing several people appeared desperate to deplane, perhaps to make connections but no one assisted them. There were also passengers from the rear of the plane up and in the aisle immediately which just causes tension and friction for those still seated. That’s when I want to and did say something to certain individuals and made them wait. But this is the flight crew’s responsibility, not the passenger’s.

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.
