Great value

Aug 4, 2019

Bad WiFi or rather no wifi

Jul 27, 2019

They forced me to check my bag and there was TONS of free overhead space once i got on the plane that went unused. That was unnecessary.

Loved the Alaska experience!

Jan 23, 2019

Exceptionally helpful with boarding and deplaning due to a handicap.

Dec 18, 2018

Only thing I didn't like is that I had to pay $30.00 each way for my very small suitcase to be checked in because it had an aerosol container in it. Somehow this needs to be written out in big bold lettering online when one is getting their ticket.
