The Flight Attendants were very nice. A passenger that I had been seated beside was extremely rude. I asked to be moved. They moved her and made the flight so nice.

The plane was clean and the crew professional

The plane boarded early—so I was "late." Consequently I got the one remaining untaken 1st class seat—which was unexpected. I slept through most of the flight, so I can't say much else about it.

The ticket said Alaska Air but it was actually American Airlines. Some confusion getting the boarding pass there.

No comfy seats. No free upgrades. No tasty food. No free baggage but I got there and back alive

Aug 13, 2018

yes, I had seat to be selected at the gate ticket, I arrived earlier & wanted to assign the seat but there was no body at the date booth. They literally arrived 15min before the flight, which made me nervious, as I wasn't sure if this was overbooked flight & wanted to secure the seat. This was my only concern. But as soon Delta attendant arrived, she was very accommodating, polite and efficient.
