FAQs for booking flights from Orlando to New York

Boarding area was a scrum, instead of a line. Audio selections are poor. The necessity or pre-ordering food is a hassle. Flight was delayed because of human error, not because of weather or mechanical issues.

Pros: “Service and overall cleanliness etc. was very smooth, good and clean. I sat in seat 1A both ways and as the first person to get on and off the flight found the process well laid out, easy, clean and smooth. I also got to witness the boarding process from inside while seated. Very professional and courteous all the way. The first class cabin was sparsely filled with ample space between us and based on how many people I saw getting on, I think the rear cabin must’ve been sparsely filled as well. More on the comfort aspect in the “what would have been bettter section” … in short, the seats are the weakest link in the chain.”

Cons: “My only gripe is about the seats fitted in first class for this Alaska Air leg (JFKSFO). Like most, my travel frequency has dropped so much that I can finally afford to pay full fare first for the few times I do need to travel. I expect that this will more likely be the norm than not and hope/expect that more among us who can afford to pay extra for the additional comfort, do so. The airline industry will need to keep that segment to get ahead of this seismic shift in travel patterns that 2020 has brought upon all of us. I was hoping to just sleep through it. I normally sleep well/easily on flights (at times, “too well”!) but could not do so on this leg. The seats in first class are just not meant for sleeping and are thus limited in their positioning … brief napping is the best you can do – carry your entertainment/work or plan on meditating while fully awake. The base is for all intent and purposes, immovable (maybe a couple of inches back and forth at best). There is no concept of a foot rest in the design. The back locks into one of two positions – a vertical one for take-off/landing and a second one tilted about 15 degrees or so. That makes it impossible to stretch the body out while fully supported – so hard to go into relaxed/deep sleep for those who wish to do so. The front passenger seat of a common car offers more for a five hour road trip – something to ponder on, eh? Upgrade the seats …the extra investment will pay for itself quickly in this age of reduced travel as you’ll attract more of those who are lucky to be able to pay a little more to fly in comfort for the few times that they need to. Additionally, sleeping passengers are often the easiest/cheapest to service!”

Cons: “Airplane temperature. It was warm and humid.”

Cons: “Freezing in biz class and NO extra blankets. Existing ones too short. No nibbles service either. Pathetic.”

Cons: “Only thing served on flight was beverages”

Pros: “Excellent take off and landing.”

Cons: “They had ressigned seats and put me in the middle of a full row, in front of the emergency exit, so the seat would not recline. The head rest was made for a tall man, and its position made me lean forward until my neck hurt. The movie selections were good, but the earphone jack didn’t work well enough to hear the dialog. They let me move to another seat and the earphones didn’t work there either. After trying two different earphones they concluded the jack was bad. Also the seats were smaller and there was less leg room than the Alaska flight going out.”

Pros: “I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable.”

Cons: “I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service”

Cons: “New York airports are always delaying landing and getting to the gate by at least 30 mins. Nothing to do with the airline I assume, but still quite frustrating to do detours and spend extra 30/40 mins in air or taxiing.”

Pros: “I’m an alaska member so I have taken quite a few flights with them and I notice the service difference after a while. Generally the crew was nice.”

Cons: “There was no beverage or food service till ~2 hrs into the flight. No air issues etc. that would cause a delay. There was only 1 service in a 5.5 hr flight. The previous crew served us beverages at least 2-3 times and carried water up and down. Coming from +90 degree weather everyone is thirsty. I bought food soon as I got on, I have a toddler.. it was delivered over 2 hrs later, luckily I came prepared with lots of snacks. Also there are no hot vegetarian meal purchase options on the flight to Mexcio/Costa Rica (which was the first leg of our trip) we had to make do with cheese/fruit platters.”

Cons: “The screaming boy in front of me who choked on something and threw up a little. I had to hold a napkin over my nose for most of the trip because of the smell.

Cons: “Terrible terrible ! Over 2 hour delay, they said it was cause of lightning, no lightning seen, and bad weather at jfk, my husband said no bad weather there , it must of been something else , I had to cancel an appointment, which is going to make my weak harder Terrible, terrible!
