Airline: Alaska Airlines
Seat #: can not remember
I departed with my family to LAX at about 6:00am to catch a 8:00am fligh to anchorage. I checked in and the agent was totally borring. She sounded like somoeone was forcing her to do this job. I then got upstairs in a breeze because this was a month before 9/11 and when Midway airlines was comming to LAX. I then waited and boarded the plane and I got inside and was greated by the nice Flight Attendants and got to my seat which was the second to last row in the plane. I find that there will be NO ENTERTAINMENT for 5hrs and 10 mins. I was so mad when I found this out. Then into the flight the seat was too small and I kept sliding into the asile and my legs had no place to go. There was no leg room and I am almost 6 ft. I notcie that the walls in the plane were ALL DIRTY and the place where the reading lights are were falling out in the seats across from me. Then the tray table in back of me was broken and every time the guy behind me used it he had a hard time getting it back in its place. FINALLY we landed in ANC and I had never been so happy to be on the gound. We got to the gate and I was happy.
I had to gothe next day to start the tour so we used Alaska Airlines again.
Airline: ALaska Airlines
Aircraft: 737-400 (love that plane)
I was once again going to fly alaska airlines. I got on the plane and I saw the same seats and was glad to see the plane was clean, had bigger seats and was in good condition. Also there was more room I thought. We took off and I saw a lot whie in the air since we flew low. Fairbanks had a lot of Chirstmas Trees next to the airport. we got there and got off the plane to start the tour.
Airline: Alaska Airlines
Arrived: 9:30 pm
I was tired and so was everyone else that came with em onthis tour. I got on that 737-700 again. I sat close to First class. I wanted to go home but not on AS. I got to my seat and put my stuff in the bin and sat down. those planes board quick like in 10 or 20 mins the plane is rolling back I am use to the 747's that can take an hour to board. I watched the Flight Attendants which were all men do the safety briefing. Then we took off and had dinner. I finally saw the sun set. I had not seen this phenoma in 7 days. I was very excited. I read, listened to music and waited to land in LAX (MY HOME). We finally came over LAX and I got excited again to see the lights of my city. We landed got our suitcaes that went all around Alaska and my aunt picked us up and we went home.
I hated that airline. That kind of aircraft belongs to Southwest. They are allowed to have planes like that but not AS. I paid a lot of money to fly them and i did not like it. Southwest you do not pay a lot for so I expect that kind of Striped model of an Aircraft but for AS that is terrible. Even first class plassengers do not have TV. Now I will fly AS on short haul flights and that is it. I will avoid them at all costs and fly alternate airlines to fly on. The TV commercial they have says " Alaska Airlines the Spirit of Alaska" if they want to talk about the sprit of Alaska don't use the airline to show that because people will not want to go to Alaska.
