I was skeptical about using American but the flight was great. The leg room was good, the staff very nice and helpful. We even got a blanket, free headphones and a meal. I was pleasantly surprised and will fly American again.

There was an hour delay, but these things are expected, time and unforseen circumstances happen to us all.. bad weather fortnight. They worked it out, we are safe in LA, what more can we ask for. (Maybe bring back applause when pilots land =).. Thank you Alaska! Very happy, great service.

I wish plane seats were more comfortable...it's so hard to nap on a plane...even in an extra room seat it's uncomfortable. Not much can be done about this I guess....maybe one day I can just afford to fly business class and layyyyyy down :-)
