I thought with all my kids out of High School I would be done with sitting in bleacher seats but now apparently Alaska has installed them on their planes. Bring your own seat cushion!
Both window seats in row 11 have a protrusion from the side of the plan that dramatically reduces shoulder and arm space on the window side. Made for an uncomfortable flight even though, unlike 10A, 11A does have a window forward of the seat.
Lots of leg room ( Im 62) and AC power. Seems like more space than their premium seats. Really a pleasant surprise
Additional leg room is nice. Seats are horribly uncomfortable due to hard-sided armrests. Attendants may forget that these are premium seats.
There are two rows of emergency exit seats, rows 16 and 17. Plenty of legroom in both but instead of limited recline for row 16, there is NO recline at all for seats in row 16, so you will sit up straight for the full journey. Entertainment system is changing. We got the equipment using the go go entertainment system requiring ...
You should note storage space limits under seats - middle seat has AC power box and aisle storage is narrow.
Both going and coming from Maui on Alaska, these seats were very noisy caused by passengers in economy rows/seats 6 DEF. The passengers in 6DEF kicked and pushed on our First Class Seats both ways. We were the last to receive meals and got "what was left over". Service in row 3 was equivalent to economy plus. Rows 1 & 2 wer...
My family of 5 sat in rows 8 and 9 premium class and we boarded early as advertised and were happy with our snack box (fig bar, almonds, chocolate). Not sure what happened with the guy complaining there's no early boarding. The seats themselves are no wider or more padded than the standard seats except the headrest but no o...
The last 3 rows of seats on both sides of the aircraft have limited/no overhead space. They are locked for safety or health equipment. If it's important to have access to your bag very close to your seat, you'd be wise to book a different seat further up the aircraft.
Surprisingly it has no window. So, for those that like to open their window shades, just don't expect to see any window.
A good seat, well worth the extra fee for Elite status. Flight attendants even provided these "Elite" seat passengers with a special snack treat, including goldfish, almonds and chocolate.
Missing/mismatched window for seats 11A & 11F: In the "Premium Class" configuration of Alaska's Boeing 737-800, row 11 would normally have 2 windows: one window forward near row 10, and a second window immediately at row 11 near the passenger's shoulder/elbow. In this aircraft configuration, that second window is missing -- r...
Lots of extra leg room. Don't have anyone reclining their seat in to your lap. You get first choice of meals. I do agree this seat needs a pocket on the wall in front of it. Even to read the emergency card or the inflight magazine you have reach over the person in 1A as they have the only pocket for 1A & C. Same problem exists f...
Although there is no floor storage, there is a lot of extra legroom in row 1. Most spacious row in First Class.
I flew in first class on this plane, and it was amazing, friendly staff, good food, lots of leg room-if you put your stuff in the overhead bins-I put my stuff underneath the seat, I was okay since I am short, but not really good for long legged people.
Let me see. Where do i begin. These new seats have to be the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of sitting in. Minimalist padding does not work for the passenger. Oh I am sure it works for Alaska airlines because it allows them to cram more seats in regardless of the pain it costs their passengers. I touched ...
Seat does give extra legroom but paying extra does not guarantee early boarding as advertised. Still some confusion over what gate agents know about new seats. Snack box is a bit of a joke.
Lots of legroom, but the seats are cramped due to the intrusive armrest. I was put in this seat, it was not the one I chose. Be careful, Alaska assigns seats even after you have payed for a particular one. Fortunately, the man next to me was thin, otherwise it would not have been comfortable.
The forward exit doors show directly in front or even with the seat row. That is not so, the exits are still through the galley.
There is no storage for this seat, or 1C for that matter. No seat or wall pocket, nothing, you have to hold everything on your lap, glasses, book, anything.
