unfortunately I did not get the seat with my husband as booked. I think many people were scattered and we were unable to switch our seats unless we upgraded. That was frustrating.

Unfortunately, due to the wild fires and weather in JFK and Newark, there were delays from ATC that were beyond the help of Alaska Air. Aside from that, there is no other national carrier I would rather fly, nor any will I fly again but Alaska Air.

United at LAX is a disaster if you are on an international flight. You have to walk three quarter of the airport to get from Immigration to a connecting flight, if you mobility challenged you will have a lot of issues making connections.
