The touch screens on the plane were hard to use. You had to press hard on the screen many times before it registered. I thought someone kept kicking my seat back until I realized they were just trying to play a movie.

Great experience

I didn’t like how they started checking all the class Basic’s carry-on bags. When I got on the plane, there was actually lots of space.

Attendants were very nice.

A little uncomfortable, too tall for the seats

Alaska airlines kept changing the plane and our Preferred seating kept getting taken away which was kind of an inconvenience.

I did not appreciate being surprised about the BE ticket. When working through the Expedia process, I kept checking to make sure I was not booking a BE ticket. I was even allowed to select a seat. It was not until the confirmation email was sent that I was made aware of the BE status of the ticket.
