Cons: "Better menu choice."
Pros: "Crew was nice and took care of us. We respected them and got it right back."
Cons: "It was no fault of the airline, but we got his with some weather delays which dampered our very long trip. Also, the leg room on the flight from Detroit to PDX was very small, we got lucky that we only had two people for our row of three seats. Let us stretch some."
Pros: "Boarding, flight, landing"
Cons: "Baggage claim was unmanned Ground transportation was awful Delta & all Harrisburg staff was not responsive, for example w/baggage unmanned a sign said "go to ticket counter" when I got to ticket counter Delta agent didn't notice me in Sky Priority line for 5 minutes because she was texting on her personal cellphone."

Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Cons: "When plane landed early and waiting on another plane to move so we could get off plane over yhirty minutes waiting"
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service in First Class. Had the side with only one seat -- nice to have no neighbors."
Cons: "Delay on return flight"
Pros: "There were only two lines. The economy line took so long because there were many passengers checking in their fish catch boxes. So those of us with only one baggage were lumped with them. There was no option to tag your own bag if you alr day checked in, as it was the same checking and bag drop line."
Cons: "If we were standing in line for a long time, I hope they can increase the number of counters. They can also dispense with the nonsense chitchat. It's not needed, just move it along. The roving staff should to remind those next in line to prepare their documents, it seems the lady at the counter had to ask for photo ID every time!"
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Pros: "Held the plane for a late connection . Trackble luggage"
Cons: "No screens. No food. A320 mechanical issues on both planes."
Cons: "The fact that seats could not be reserved ahead of time. Having them assigned at the gate is illogical and does not reward the passengers who reserve / check ahead of time. Additionally, it creates unnecessary rush at the gate."
Pros: "everthing went well"
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "I liked the free in-flight entertainment - movies, music, HBO, etc. That was very nice and helped the flight fly by"
Pros: "Todo estuvo genial fue la primera que viajaba con niños y no hablo inglés"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Boarding passes were hand written, very 1980s or earlier"
Pros: "The inflight crew were great. The price of the tickets were also good."
Cons: "The crew at the check in on our way out of nashville had the worst attitude I have ever experienced from an airline. They got us quickly up to the counter (good) but when I had to ask questions because I didn’t have time to read the signage they got an attitude with me. “Didn’t you see the sign?” And turning to another employee, “isn’t there a sign with all the information posted?” Same employee came down to the terminal and announced the wrong destination for our flight while we were boarding. On the way out of Miami and back to Nashville the crew had great attitudes but it was so disorganized we had the longest line to wait in to check in for both concourses. People were going to miss flights. They fixed that eventually but I’m not sure they did it fast enough for some. Getting through security was far faster than check in. Also, they nickel and dime you for luggage, snacks, etc. It’s a no frills flight. I’ll probably give them one more chance though."
Pros: "We boarded and took off on time. The staff was friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are way to close together! No lag room for a person 5 feet 11 inches. I was uncomfortable during the entire flight! They served one beverage and that was it. They charged $6 per person to reserve a specific seat in advance! I think I will drive next time, because Sun Country treats their customers like cattle in a stall! (Crammed seating)"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to check in online using sun country’s app because I booked through kayak. Missed my flight and now flying stand by"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful, which is how I like it."
Cons: "My flight was fine; boarding was a real pain. The gate in Boston is very inconvenient, the charging station didn’t work, and I couldn’t hear when my boarding group was announced. The TSA crew in Boston was a nightmare as well. Unusually rude, and shoved my stuff through the x-ray machine faster than I could grab it. They pinched my kid’s fingers!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "They switched my seat last minute because the accidentally charged me for bags that didn’t get checked and had to re-check me in. The woman in the seat in front of me was practically sitting in my lap, which I couldn’t help unless someone surgically removed part of my legs. My knees were smashed against her recliner seat for the full three hour flight. I was moved from a window seat mid cabin to a seat surrounded by children under the age of six. No chance at rest. Made me lug bagged to oversized drop off only to be told that my gear wasn’t actually oversized and I had to lug it all back and stand in line for bag drop off again. This was a bad time."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Some seats were loose."
Pros: "Affordable flight."
Cons: "Was not aware they charge for a carry on bag."
Cons: "Tightest seat I have experienced 90 minutes to get luggage at carousel Offered drinks only once"
Pros: "Wings didn’t fall off"
Cons: "Both flights each direction were delayed and late and luggage was a nightmare with major waiting times (the whole flight waited over an hour for luggage). The flight delays were related to staffing emergencies. Luggage seemed like 1 guy was working. With their fees, they push you to check your bags but don’t have the service to back it up. Do not recommend if your schedules are tight."
Cons: "Both flights to and from Alaska were delayed. The carry on baggage fees the seat selection fees were a terrible upcharge. I will not fly Suncountry again."
Pros: "I liked that SY fly new Boing 737-700. Good and safe airplanes. Speedy check-in and bording. Pilots and flight crew were very nice. Good Service."
Cons: "I booked through a 3rd party and needed to change departure time - not good. I thought SY could help but I needed to go back the party I initially booked with - not very customer friendly. Will book directly with SY from now on."
Cons: "baggage was slow, missed our shuttle."
Pros: "The thing I liked most was the non-stop flight from ANC -> MSP. Seats were fine, didn't feel more overcrowded than usual. Crew was polite and boarding was fairly quick."
Cons: ""Lowest fairs!!" and then on check in they nickel and dime you with extra costs for even a carry on AND to choose a seat that you already bought!! I mean, you don't have to. You could always just wait until check in at the airport and get thrown into a middle seat. Saving extra money was what pushed me over the edge here, but after all the fees after booking was paid for and experience, I would have gladly paid the extra money to fly Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "My father also had a seat that would not recline. Not good for a 5+ hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Great staff and crew. Very good for an economy flight."
Cons: "Flight 2 hours late. There is no entertainment or food just soda."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late departure, dirty plane, hidden expenses"
Pros: "That I got to my destination safely and on time."
Cons: "There were two people working Sun Country desks so I almost missed my flight. Flight attendants were cranky. No food offered and I don't think they recycle. No blankets offered anymore and it was very cold. Worst thing - I jumped through all the hoops so my small bag could be carried on instead of checked, and I then had to pay $40 to carry on instead of the $25 to check."
Cons: "The seats don’t give much leg room and no plug ins available for phone/iPad. Guess I’m used to Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Some of the flight attendants were nice but the other half were crabby."
Cons: "Paying that much for a plane ticket and traveling that far without being able to watch a movie was too long of a trip as they said they ran out of them on the way there but had none to offer on the way back except for first class."
Pros: "Missed my friends wedding"
Cons: "I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early at destination"
Cons: "There was no overhead room for carry on bags when I boarded at row 11. I just had a cloth bag and had to keep it at my feet- not comfy leg room for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Seats are TINY even for myself (5'5 130lbs). Wish the flights had wifi too! I'm sure that's not always feasible though."
Pros: "Inexpensive non-stop flight"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "There was no communication as to why our boarding process was delayed 1 hour. Clearly there was USPS mail being unloaded but no communication was offered until 45 minutes after our initial board time. It does not bother me the flight was delayed, it was unprofessional not to offer any communication."
Pros: "Fast boarding and great service. Funny piolet was a a plus."
Cons: "Paying for tablet use during a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Poor seats, no reclining. No head rest. Most uncomfortable flight ever. No WiFi. Ran out of dvds for movies before row ten. Offers nothing! If your going to be a budget no amenities sure line ADVERTISE IT! Don't fool people. Never again!!! Terrible"
Pros: "No problems boarding. Can't rate food or entertainment as had neither."
Cons: "Cabin was uncomfortably warm. Attendant was unhelpful and rude when I had trouble getting my bag into overhead."
Pros: "We loved that the plane took off each time on time."
Cons: "Cabin was about 85 degrees the entire flight"
Pros: "The people on the plane was great"
Cons: "The people at the ticket counter and gate liked their jobs as the were talking down to the customer and not to the customer"
Pros: "Don't know why more airlines don't board from the back to the front like Sun Country - WAY more efficient and very smooth. The crew were funny and cordial. I had sprained my ankle on my vacation and was on crutches. Employees at the airport were quick to supply me with a wheel chair to my gate and had one waiting for me on the arriving end when we landed."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable for an overnight flight. Sleeping was impossible. The headrests need the adjustable 'wings' like most other airlines so you at least have something for your head to rest against. Seats barely recline so even with a pillow your chin is in your lap. Nice to have the full can of pop but a pretzel or peanut snack would have been nice for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Easy check-in and boarding at Minnesota's hometown airline. Will always fly Sun Country if it's an option."
Pros: "Pleasant attendants."
Cons: "sitting in the last seat."
Pros: "Price and friendly staff"
Cons: "Narrow seats, small amount of legroom, narrow aisles, inability to contact customer service, check in, or reserve a seat ahead of time"
Cons: "A broke down plane, a 12+ hour delay, dinner vouchers given 10 minutes before departure, a $300 voucher promised at JFK but unfulfilled in MSP...what else can I say, the day was spent trolling the halls of Terminal 4."
Cons: "The seats in the row right behind 1st class are extremely narrow. Customers should be informed of that when booking or boarding."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional and helped people with their bags. There wasn't a big difference between this airline and other bigger airlines. Some flights will be better than others depending upon the crew and passengers and weather, but passengers are packed in one lost all the flights."
Cons: "Took a long time for passengers to board and "line" was clogged up at the gate by people waiting. People need to get out of the way of those boarding. Ran out of video machines by the time they got halfway down the aisle."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Plane was clean."
Cons: "We ran into rough weather and I know that the crew cannot control that."
Pros: "Everything was great. Thanks"
Pros: "Nice smooth ride. Service was great. Very friendly. Great landing in rough weather."
Pros: "We were assigned to the exit row, so had more leg room. It was a new plane and very nice."
Cons: "It was an overnight flight and we could not recline the seats, which made sleep impossible."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Food options were poor"
Pros: "I like that SunCountry flys directly to my most important locations,"
Cons: "Can't spring for a bag of pretzels or something?"
Pros: "Had window seats"
Cons: "Why are you sending me this survey at 2:31 am?"
Cons: "No complimentary snakes No inflight entertainment"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Tried to reschedule flight took 2 days"
Cons: "There seems to have been a mix up. Several parties were scattered throughout the plan. My husband and I were on opposite sides of the plane. Another woman was 20 rows behind her husband. There was a family with four kids, each was in a different row- though they were able to corral them with assistance. We booked several months earlier, so I'm not sure why it happened."
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn’t crash!"
Cons: "I don’t know, maybe having FOOD ON THE FLIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF JUST CANDY?"
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The gates were backed up due to cancellations and weather. Missed flights, lost luggage and some very angry people."
Cons: "Need power outlets at seats."
Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"
Pros: "Quick boarding and early arrival"
Cons: "No real entertainment features. Nothing while in international waters. Not even a map of where we were."
Cons: "I didn't go on my trip. My course in SF was cancelled and United would n't refund my money or change the dates for my trips because of there basic economy package. They have 3 different economy packages and the economy basic doesn't get refunds and you can't change the flights if needed. It feels like they are banking on increasing there ROI with this basic economy ticket which is 40 -60 dollars cheaper than the next economy package. Intuitively they know people will pick that, but if something comes up the customer is screwed."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The seats are small, no real space, things over all looked run down, feels like I’m taking a city bus but even those have more room."
Pros: "The base price is better than Alaska Air. The travel time is acceptable."
Cons: "The base price is for a cramped seat with no checked bag included. Food and entertainment are also extras The human element has been eliminated from the check in process."
Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"
Pros: "It was generally quiet and peaceful. I called the stewards at one point and they were very prompt and attentive."
Cons: "Teeny tiny seats on an overnight flight? I had to ask my rowmates to clear the row so I could find my glasses that had fallen under my seat because there simply wasn't room to maneuver even an arm down to manually search for them. This is not to mention that most people sleep on these flights; how is that comfortable for most regular Americans?"
Pros: "Uncomfortable seat cushions like all of our United flights. This was the 1st United crew that was at least friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions like all of our United flights. This was the 1st United crew that was at least friendly!"
Pros: "For the amount I paid I'm surprised all we got was mixed nuts! Very disappointing! I hated watching movies on my iPhone, wished you had mounted headrests"
Cons: "Free food or more snack options! Tv consoles in the headrest"
Pros: "My flight attendants on my flight were wonderful and so was the boarding crew at San Fran's airport to Las Vegas were awesome as well. The space I had on my connecting flight to vegas was awesome and the feature it had to charge devices were a nice too."
Cons: "The crew at the front desks and at the boarding area for my flight from Anchorage, AK, to the San Fran airport however, were extremely rude. The rating for the crew is a 2 because although my flight attendants were awesome, but the service given to me and to my fellow flyers by the Customer Service Agents/Reps at the front desk and the training of a newbie at the gate, when boarding at the Anchorage, Alaska, airport was terrible. They were extremely unprofessional and did not seem to care that the tones of their voices, their facial expressions, as well as their body language, showed that they lacked the manners and knowledge of compassion, respect and courtesy. Their rotten attitudes were insufficient at making the customers/guests of the airlines feel comfortable before flying. I did not appreciate being spoken to the way some of the reps did."
Pros: "kept on delaying and didn't take off until almost 3 hrs later"
Cons: "Worst airline meal ever - ok chicken with plain grits and bitter green vegetable (kale?) and a tough dry roll"
Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The attendents were helpful and nice except in the situation I've listed in dislike. The plane left on time and arrived early and we didn't have to wait 20 minutes for a gate to open up."
Cons: "I chose the back window seat right in front of the restrooms. Crewmember even said it was the worst seat in the house. Although I didn't pay to upgrade, thee were available seats up there. The attendant even said she would ttry to move things around once people were seate without anyone asking. She just knew our row was going to be uncomfortable.. I am tall with big shoulders, the gentleman next to me was large. All that I ask is the attendant come back after all is settled and explain that it wasn't possible to move things around. Although, if there were seats available I should have been offered a different seat. I have flown a lot on different airlines. I've flown on a 15 hour flight overseas. This is BY FAR the most uncomfortable I have EVER been."
Cons: "I have pictures and video of how dirty the plane was from the air vent all the way to the floor so disgusting do you guys ever clean the planes"
Pros: "no delays!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "If nothing else United has been consistent in their late departures and arrivals backed by absolute lies about the reason for delays. Staff says one thing then Pilot says something completely counter. Then the lack of any sort of heartfelt appology adds to the insult. Every flight was overbooked by at least 5 people. Total incompetence. Moreover, United has made profit so obviously more important than client comfort. The seats were similar to a straight back Dining room chair except with your knees in your chest. They even took away the seat back pouch as a smal comfort to place items to be replaced with an 8 inch high mesh that fits nothing larger than your cell phone. A 6 hour flight and 1 drink service with 1/2 glass of soda. Pay $7.99 only to find out that video does not work through Canada which was the majority of the flight"
Pros: "Blanket and small pillow. Puerto Rico crew sang Christmas song- very nice."
Cons: "No food in a 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight."
Pros: "I ended up missing my connecting flight because the flight left the airport almost an hr late....once i get to my connecting flight...ive missed it...soooo i had yo wait 4hrs for the next available flight & missed my doctors visit......im sooo pissed....."
Cons: "Missing my connecting flight"
Pros: "Boarded on time. That is all."
Cons: "After boarding, we waited on the plane for a long time before they said there was a mechanical problem and we would need to deboard while they fix it. After waiting another four hours they finally canceled the flight. They couldn't get us another flight and said to come back the next day to see if there is another flight out."
Cons: "I was not told that if I voluntarily checked my carry on bag I wouldn't be able to make flight changes later."
Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "I am 5'4" and had no leg room. My knees touched the seat in front of me the whole time. The in seat entertainment was broken on the entire plane for the flight. Simply won't ever fly in a plane so cramped ever again."
Pros: "The one crew member that talked the whole flight was nice"
Cons: "Entertainment was not given freely, as if you didn't just pay 300 per ticket to fly on United. It would cut in and out just to tell you it wanted your credit card. The seats were so full the middle person doesn't even have room to sit up straight without touching shoulders"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Flight was great."
Cons: "Only negative was that the seat was cramped, not much room."
Pros: "Boarding and crew"
Cons: "Service, look like you have to purchase everything from food to entretaiment."
Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and made us late"
Pros: "Everything you are.."
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"
Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."
Cons: "They canceled my flight, lost my luggage made me miss events in my life on my vacation and only comped me 20$ food ticket which is nothing in an airport. And I was stuck in an unfamiliar airport for 10 hours waiting for a new flight through another airline. Oh and dod I mention the bag they lost for a whole day was 50lbs of fresh Alaskan seafood and yes it all was thawed.... I will never fly United airlines again."
Cons: "On a flight as long as this one was it should have included FREE use of the movies, TV shows, the entertainment feature ."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Needed to get to a hurting friend asap who's husband was dying. When I checked my luggage the delta employee gave me a heartfelt hug & words of encouragement Which meant more to me then anything. That's not in any training manual that's the heart of a great employee...."
Pros: "Once on the aircraft everything was just fine"
Cons: "First of all it was delayed, no big deal but once i checked in I wasn't even assigned a seat. I try to find an agent at the boarding gate and none to be found. They finally arrive 30 min before take off and then assign me a middle seat when I specifically picked my seat weeks earlier and of course was one of the last people to board barely enough time to search for a place for my bag and get to my middle seat in the back of the aircraft. Not even a sorry or any type of compensation for a terrible experience"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "The way you bord the plane"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "United has squeezed its Economy class customers into seats that are tolerable only for the shortest. If I were an inch or so taller, I would have found the space intolerable. As it was, my knees were against the seat in front. For a flight as long as this one (over 5 hours from Anchorage to Denver), it was uncomfortable to say the least. The middle of the plane was nearly empty, because United charges $75 per seat for an upgrade. For the round-trip for two of us, that would have added $300 to our bill. The fact that so few are willing to pay the upgrade fee indicates that the increment is too large."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I don't think it's possible to construct a plane more cramped than that, but I'm sure someone will rise to the challenge."
Pros: "boarding was on time"
Cons: "plane was so small."
Pros: "Weight restriction on the plane, almost didn't make it out"
Cons: "Late to leave anchorage because of a weight restriction. Flight was only 3/4 full."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "seats were a little less shitty but still shitty"
Cons: "Two time delayed"
Pros: "The bigger seat and more room"
Cons: "Flight attendants not walking around and pick up the trash. I had to take the trash back to the garbage. I saw the ladies just chatting in the back."
Cons: "There was a lot of empty seats but the crew never offer the guy seating next to us to move. His elbow kept hitting the buttons and turned on the tv screen while I was trying to sleep. I saw he went to ask one of the crew but was told to wait until flight takes off then no one helped him after. Flight was bumpy most of the time..not a very happy customer"
