                    Location ok, hotel is clean, water in the shower is good, bed and pillow are comfortable. The lacking point is just the lighting. The lights provided is very strong and sharp for the eyes. Not comfortable. So it’s either too bright or too dark.

                                          The United flight across country had no entertainment options unless you had the United App already downloaded. The flight attendants were great, but traveling with 4 small kids and having no inflight entertainment was challenging.

                                          The food ordering function on the touchscreens didn’t work. I had to call the flight attendants manually to order food

                                          Only critique is that service timing was long gor beverages and we only got a water refill once. I had to go to back of plane to ask for more water on a 5hr flight. Other than that great flight!

                                          I was concerned when Alaska purchased my beloved Virgin USA but this was one of my best flights ever (on christmas eve no less!)

                                          Massively delayed - thanks to the weather - but the plane ran out of purchasable food within an hour. That said, I'm a fatass, so skipping a meal every now and then wouldn't kill me...!

                                          Even though the plane is brand new, the engine was noisier than the Alaska Aid Boeing plane I flew in April. The A321 lavatory is very small.

                                          $I paid 129.00 to ujpgrade my mother to a seat closes to the door (row 6). Alaska Airlines moved her seat without any notification or warning. My mother is 78 years old and issue with balance. The goal was to seat her closet to the exit door so she would not have to walk so far. We did not ;learn about the move until check in at the airport we learned she had been to row 22 on the plane. We were both very disappointed to learn this. Unfortunately we did not have time to find another flight. My hope is that by writing this note other customer will receive better treatment. Also please be advised that I still have not received a refund or $129.00 for the upgraded seat.

                                          Flight was delayed for 5 hours. There was no proactive acknowledgment of inconvenience, information updates, or compensation from beginning to end including front counter, gate personnel, and flight crew. Flight crew delivery of services was perfunctory. They didn't seem like they wanted to be there. Alaska could have at least provided free food and alcoholic beverages for the inconvenience. I wound up missing the last rail from airport to home at my destination, and had to pay for $95 cab ride home. Alaska didn't provide any services to address the transportation issues and needs of its passengers at the destination. A "well we got you here, you're on your own" attitude".

                                          We sat on the tarmac for two hours and the flight attendants kept the restrooms locked for most of the plane. They opened them sooner for first class but reminded passengers throughout the flight that they were only for first class. For the entire rest of the plane there were only two restrooms in the back. They finally opened the coach restrooms just before clearance was given for takeoff and there was a huge line, but then everyone had to go back to their seats, and it was a long time before the seatbelt sign was turned off again so most people waited several hours before they were permitted to use a restroom. No snacks or extra drinks were offered although we were on the plane for more than 8 hours. Weak Alaska, very weak.
