SEATTLE, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines ranked highest in airline customer satisfaction among traditional network carriers for the sixth consecutive year by J.D. Power and Associates in its 2013 North America Airline Satisfaction Study SM. The airline also ranked highest in J.D. Power and Associates' annual segment rankings between 2008 and 2012.

"We're honored to receive this prestigious recognition from our customers," said Alaska Air Group President and CEO Brad Tilden. "Receiving this award six years in a row is a credit to the 13,000 Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air employees who show their dedication to our customers every day and on every flight."

In the annual survey, Alaska Airlines ranked highest in six of the seven measures ranked by travelers, including cost and fees; reservation; check-in; flight crew; aircraft; and boarding/deplaning/baggage.

J.D. Power and Associates' 2013 North America Airlines Satisfaction Study SM is based on responses from more than 11,800 passengers who flew on a major North America carrier between April 2012 and March 2013. The study measures overall customer satisfaction based on performance in seven measures (in order of importance): cost and fees; flight crew; inflight services; aircraft; boarding/deplaning/baggage; check-in; and reservation. Traditional network carriers are defined as airlines that operate multi-cabin aircraft and use multiple airport hubs. Read the official J.D. Power release at www.jdpower.com.
