                          It was convenient for the tennis tournament that was held at Holua. Parking was too far from the condo and the walk was a distance to the courts. Should have had the use of a cart.

                                          I always need assistance at check in. I think it’s the orbitz system does not work well with Alaska Airlines

                                          First trip out from Orlando, we were never notified that United app was needed for movie’s until we were in the air, we noticed that all the other flights they announced it, other than that Perfect experience

                                          Alaska Air is a superior airline!!!

                                          Should make kids fly on the wings.

                                          Overall, good but my luggage did take an unscheduled flight without me and then it took quite awhile to get to me at the hotel. We were just about in bed when it came.

                                          May 13, 2018

                                          Was really disappointed as Wi-Fi did not work the entire 6 hr flight!

                                          May 11, 2018

                                          Best service I've had in awhile will definitely look to use United more often

                                          May 4, 2018

                                          Seat was aweful. Really packed in 737 . Not the best way to travel for 51/2 hours

                                          United canceled our flight because they said we wouldn’t make it on time for our connecting flight. So disappointed and really inconvenienced.

                                          Waiting for drinks was too long

                                          Jul 14, 2018

                                          The stewardess stole a form I was supposed to fill out from me while I was sleeping. I told her repeatedly I wasn't finished with it. I don't get why she was in such a rush it was super annoying.

                                          Apr 4, 2018

                                          This was a Virgin flight. Worst service I have experienced in memory. It would appear Alaska has botched its takeover of Virgin. Won't fly again if possible.

                                          Smelly plane, deliberately overbooked-forced to get much later flight, disgraceful overall
