Flights Review

Dec 3, 2019

I could have used a waiver on the baggage check. I have 6 total trips this month with one bag to check - Four more trips coming up, starting Friday. The baggage fee is way to excessive and I could use a break since I only used AK for travel..

I wish Alaska supported sending boarding passes as text messages. I can't print and don't have email on my phone, so getting a boarding pass is a pain.

Not accept American Airlines: free first bag checked:( :( tho listed as ONE World Group! OOPS!!!
