Flights Review

Sep 11, 2018

The only downside to this trip was that my flight going to Santa Barbara from Seattle was delayed and my flight from Santa Barbara back to Seattle was delayed. Also, the internet did not work and there was no entertainment options available, so you have to bring a book or something else to do on the flight.

Seats way too small, though nothing can be done about that.

Jul 25, 2018

Great crew and service. Very friendly. I appreciate that Alaska Air also considers environmental concerns.
