Wonderful flight from SBA to SEA-Tac. Reminded me of the 'old days' when the airline really cared about keeping its customers happy and comfortable. May be a function of the smaller airport. Seattle was back to the rush and crowds but still Alaska staff did everything to make it tolerable and comfortable. Best flight in a long time even as an economy flyer.

Lost my bag luckily I returned home. Baggage update says they are trying to locate bag but a rep in LAX told me it was on a plane that had landed in LA shortly after I did and would be coming to SANTA barbara with me. So it has been 24 hours and no bag

Online check-in is essential. Hope that United discontinued the "Basic Economy" flights that did not allow online check-in.

Having just flown on a different airline to and from Tel Aviv, I was amazed at how roomy and comfortable the seats were. I had plenty of leg room in spite of my bag resting under the seat in front of me. It was especially pleasing since I had inadvertently gotten a "basic economy" flight! Thanks!
