Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time flight-crew was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Pros: "I liked the service to see if there was a chance to upgrade because of the connecting flight and even though there was a delay in the plane arriving to Alaska, the quick turn was excellent and we were in the air within a short period of time."
Cons: "The comfortability and that’s rear even if I had the middle seat. I had it on my way towards Alaska and didn’t have any issue"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "On time/ early arrival!"
Cons: "Most bring on 2 large carry ons slowing down boarding an de- planeing."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Cons: "Cabin was too hot!!!!"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "On the way to Minneapolis the plane was BEYOND PACKED. There was no room for even my backpack."
Pros: "Was able to sleep for once. Nobody in center seat."
Cons: "Crying babies"
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Polite and thoughtful crew took care of our needs. Beverage service came through at least twice. Crew persevered through difficulties with the in-flight entertainment system and finally got it to work for us. :)"
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"
Pros: "Crew was professional, courteous and kind. No issues on the plane."
Cons: "WiFi did not work for me to watch the on board entertainment, but not a dealbreaker for me."
Pros: "They didn’t let me on I want a refund this made me miss my birthday party in Chicago thanks for ruining 25"
Pros: "Very friendly"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Boarding passes were hand written, very 1980s or earlier"
Cons: "More leg room."
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)"
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."
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: "Flight was delayed and I was not notified. No on board entertainment. Connecting flight was also delayed. No on board entertainment either. Missed work due to delayed flights. Landed 2 hours late."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late departure, dirty plane, hidden expenses"
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: "The price of the tickets were great. They definitely "nickel and dime" but it was expected given they seem to be a budget airline. The crew at the terminal were nice and professional."
Cons: "Every flight was slow in taking off (delays aside). The crew on the plane never smiled and seemed annoyed to be serving us. It was unbearably hot on the flight for some reason and the air wasn't working very well."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Comfortable flight in the air due to the pilots."
Cons: "No food. Had to pay for it. Had to pay for entertainment as there were no t.v. s. It was very uncomfortable in the plane as it was very hot..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was very rude and dismissive."
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"
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: "Excellent 9.5"
Pros: "Loved everything about it"
Pros: "The assistance with wheelchairs. I had difficulty walking due to knee and foot pain Seats were roomy. Room for legs"
Cons: "No snacks provided"
Pros: "Plane arrived on time."

Pros: "I had not heard of Sun Country before. I loved the price and the easier boarding and everything else. I wish I could take this airline everywhere I fly!"
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and courteous, the flight was quick and comfortable."
Pros: "The Security at both Logan and Minn. where first class. Suncountry had its own section which allowed for a quick and efficient security process. The food options, though paid for, are reasonable in price and much greater in variety. I do wish they had some free snack options."
Cons: "No entertainment, well they had hand held devices you could rent but that was not ideal. The room in the seats was the worst in the industry. I am 6' tall and I could barely fit my legs under the seat in front of me with a small bag there. For the price it is well worth it and I would do it again for a short flight but nothing of length."
Pros: "Inexpensive and direct from JFK to MSP."
Cons: "Mechanic delays are common and is certainly a no frills airline."
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."
Cons: "We never got off the ground because of mechanical problem. I was sent back to the terminal where I waited in line for 2.5 hours. Finally SC put me on a different airline on a flight that left 12 hours later. No compensation for food or other costs incurred as a result of this problem. I understand that things don't always go right but it is important to provide good customer service on those occasions. SC failed me."
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: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Slow on return of gate checked bags. A little late in getting off the ground."

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."

My 6 foot 200 lb husband ended up against the window in a row with 2 women that were both well over 250 lbs and I was seated with strangers. No free movie as there was on the trip to Texas"
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"
Cons: "The amount of luggage people bring as carry ons."
Cons: "Well being an United Explorer card holder and still paying baggage makes you scratch your head on why I have the credit card in the first place."
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 luggage and made us late"
Pros: "Everything you are.."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Late to leave anchorage because of a weight restriction. Flight was only 3/4 full."
Pros: "Flights was ontime"
Cons: "Plane was too hot, and then way to cold. This seems to be a re-occurring problem. I am not sure why the plane can't just be set to be be 68-72 degrees. There is no need for it to be above 80 or less than 60."

Cons: "seats were a little less shitty but still shitty"

Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
