Good customer service

Plane was filthy. Not enough turnaround time. Floor was disgusting, tray had food on it, no soap in washroom at the beginning of the flight. Everything else went well, but please tell Alaska to clean up their act!

All great!! On time, Service on flight was great

Two other flights at the gate were boarding at practically the same time as ours. Seems like poor planning to have two flights boarding at the same time.
