I booked my flight tickets with alaska airlines as i have a good experience with them but this time. I was planning a little longer trip so, i had to carry some baggages along and i was not sure about the baggage allowance policy of alaska airlines. I had booked my tickets through the official website of alaska airlines so, i visited the site again to check for the baggage policy and plan accordingly. It was not that difficult to find the baggage policy, i reached the page of alaska airlines baggage policy and read each and every written detail. The details mentioned on the website were accurate and helped me a lot to do my packing accordingly, i got lucky to be saved from the extra baggage charges. Alaska airlines is a good airlines according to me, they maintain proper transparency with the customers and you will feel satisfied with their service and facilities offerings.

I had a flight with alaska airlines so, i was preparing with all my stuffs and clothes to pack. But before that, i wanted to know the baggage policies of alaska airlines to do packing accordingly and avoid any extra baggage charge. i googled for the helpdesk number of alaska airlines and gave them a call. My call was not picked up by the alaska airlines staff members and i was really disappointed with them. Then, i opened the official app of alaska airlines on my mobile phone and searched for their baggage policy to be ready in advance. Fortunately, the baggage policy of american airlines was described in the mobile app and i read all the details to avoid any extra baggage charge. In the end, i got what i wanted to know but i was disappointed due to no call response.
