Awesome flight and friendly staff

Not a whole lot of extra room in your seat. Pretty difficult to get to the bathroom without making everyone next to you get out of their seat if you are sitting in a window seat.

No power in plane for charging and no entertainment if you didnt have your own device and no chargers to charge your device.

First Alaskan airline flights and super impressed with seat space!!

Jul 6, 2018

One thing I didn’t like was that I get air sick easily and there was not a throw up bag in my seat or the neighbors. I needed one too.

How do you get a free checked bag?

Wish I hadn’t had to wait until next morning for my bags.
