very good experience

Aug 29, 2019

Love flying Alaska. I sometimes take them and have to drive a few hours to my destination because I don't like the options that go to my little airport

Jul 7, 2019

Very bumpy take off and landing. Extremely cold on the plane, very uncomfortable.

1st time on Alaska Airlines

Jul 28, 2018

Anchorage flight was delayed, so missed flight at O'hare, but United booked us on an American flight which was only a couple hrs difference. Appreciated that and made it much better. And, our luggage made it also :)

everything was on time and the flight was managed professionally.

1 of 3 of my luggage was lost. Waited at XNA for 4 hours before administration got involved to locate my baggage. Identified that the luggage was placed under the name of someone else in my party and was still in Chicago. The service at the XNA United desk was disappointing. Since I waited there for 4 hours, I was able to monitor the customer service. The wait time for check in was at least 30 minutes if you had to check a bag or make travel arrangements. This experience will definitely impact my decision to travel on United in the future.

Although it is not under your control, I thought TSA at the Anchorage airport was dreadful. I hv an easier time getting through security at O’Hare that at Ted Stevens. I am glad I was not running late, or I may hv missed my flight.
