Cons: "What food? Alaska Airlines doesn't feed the cattle. Even the Salmon I brought back, one was semi frozen, expected that... The other was not frozen at all??? What's up with that??? Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."

Cons: "A long line for the aft toilets, and crew told us we couldn't use the empty toilet at the front because first class passengers pay more. This was TWO attendants making people wait when at least one other toilet was open up front on a five hour flight. Is this even legal? Very disappointed in lack of consideration for health and comfort. Thanks for listening."

Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Relaxed atmosphere, updated seats, everything was smooth and on time, attendents were polite and helpful"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the service was very good. For an 11 hour flight, it was better than I anticipated. The meals were surprisingly tasty!"
Cons: "Just one thing...I couldn't seem to recline my seat, but I didn't say anything about it. This isn't anyone's fault, but for someone my age, sitting in one location for 11 hours is a pain. Also, my one check-in bag was literally the last bag on the baggage carousel... just my bad luck."
Pros: "I love"
Pros: "Nothing. I slept 70 percent of the way but these two adults ad their brat kid kept kicking seats and the father was the worse.it wasn’t a horrible trip but I think the father was the oddest. He kept changing his seat next to mine. But overall I slept 70 percent of the time."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly!"
Cons: "You had to pay to watch movies, like really? It's an 11 hour flight. Not to mention, the last row on the plane next to bathroom is never a good thing. The food was spaghetti and meatballs, not what I'd call Hawaiian food."

Pros: "There is a port for a USB, so you can bring a device? But then, you have to prepare your entertainment in advance which is an inconvenience...."
Cons: "The complementary food was garbage. I am not asking for a 5 star meal from Roy's; I am asking that the food be somewhat edible. The paid snack options were few and there we no healthier choices. You have to pay for all of films, games, and movies. No WiFi on the plane. The display had issues when I tried to turn it off - it would randomly come on. The volume for the "advertisements" were ridiculously louder. In fact, they were louder than the safety announcements from the staff! Gotta pay $25 for a checked bag."
Cons: "I was not in the system for my flight so therefore i didnt have a ticket. My trip was round trip and for some reason i was not marked as being on the original flight from honolulu to jfk so they canceled my return flight."

Pros: "The flight was good, and the flight attendants were efficient."

The meal that was included on our flight was good especially since you would be paying extra on other Airlines."
Cons: "Don't forget your earbuds or earphones."
Cons: "Passenger have to pay for every single entertainment."
Pros: "Hope you would continue your practice of onboard food offering services. That was great!"

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
