Flyer Reviews of the Alaska Airlines

I fly Alaska Airlines almost every domestic trip I take, however that has recently changed. I will no longer fly Alaska. On a recent flight, my wife and I were among the last passengers to board, and were forced to check our carry on luggage (1 small suit case), because we were told there was limited overhead space. We begrudgingly accept and board the plane to find about half the overhead space completely empty. I'm not exaggerating here either. There was room for another 30 luggage bags. I immediately ask the nearest stewardess why we were being asked to check our bags with all the obvious available space, and she responds with: "We are concerned about overhead space filling up". I shoot her a confusing look and then look to the ample available overhead space, and she doesn't respond. This definitely sounds like a lame and nit-picky complaint, but we were meeting a friend at our destination who would be waiting on us to share a cab with, and the extra 20 minutes waiting for our checked luggage is a bit ridiculous. We packed light for the very reason of NOT having to check any luggage.

On a May 10, 2018, flight, the seat was a little forward compared to the submitted picture. I was able to see outside when I leaned forward. But still had the wall to lean against to sleep.

First off, the seat is easily 2 inches narrower than every other seat on the plane, as the fuselage starts narrowing two rows before this one. It also has less legroom than other rows. Adding insult to injury, it also does not recline at all, making it impossible to have a computer open and get work done. But wait - it gets better: you are next to the lavatory! Enjoy smells, lineups of people, and doors opening closing all flight long...

Watch out for this seat maybe, no seat reclining in front of you; may have extra legroom; no underseat stowage; near the galley; traytable in armrest means narrower seat; armrests do not move.

Just not a good seat, may have limited recline; near the lavatory.

seatlink
Could go either way on this seat, this exit row seat has extra legroom; the seat in front does not recline; will not recline; no under seat stowage during takeoff and landing; may be missing an armrest; seat cushion may be very firm.
[Seat 16F on a Boeing 737-900]


seatlink
Avoid this seat if you can... may have limited recline; near the lavatory.
