For the brief flight we took from Seattle to Oakland, one doesn't expect too much but Alaska managed to make this a pleasant flight. They departed and arrived on time, which is a nice thing. And they delivered our checked bags to the carousal within 20 minutes of landing, which is their guarantee. That is a big plus, making for...

As always we enjoyed our flight to Los Cabos on Alaska airlines. Love the new free baggage allowance when you use your Alaska visa signature card. Great service and reasonable prices.

This was my first time to be on one of their planes. I actually got to see two of them because I had to change planes in Seattle. They have extremely comfortable seats, a ton of legroom, and they keep their windows clean. I was traveling from San Antonio TX to Anchorage AK, and used Delta Airlines to get from...

My husband and I booked round-trip economy class for our trip to Portland, OR. Imagine our shock when we tried to board and the attendant printed us new boarding passes and said "You've been moved to first class!" Everything about this flight was first class. The plane had more room in both classes than any other jet we have flown...

Since I live in the NW I've decided to fly Alaska Airlines whenever possible and maintain elite status as one of their frequent fliers. I believe their frequent flier program is one of the best and I've always had professional and competent service when interacting with the employees whether with the reservation department, flight attendants or airport staff. I do...
