Pros: "Crew is always wonderful"

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight wasn’t overly full. I live the hot tea selections."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ran out of meals. The oatmeal was terrible."
Pros: "That they made up time in the air"
Cons: "Nearly everything"
Cons: "They did an advertisement for Alaska airlines credit cards midway through. That kind of thing maxes me extremely angry. They ought to be ashamed."
Cons: "Crampy plane"
Cons: "Snacks other than the cookie they always offer."
Pros: "The crew and timeliness of this airline is hard to beat!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Had the exact same meal on both of our flights. Flight from Seattle was one hour late in departure."
Cons: "Your premium seating snack were dry and boring. Second leg from Seattle to.Vancouver I was charged for free drinks, snack. Then flight was barely 35 mins, waste of money and looked no different from basic seating"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Inflight movies were great!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. I bought this ticket from Anchorage to San Antonio TX. I paid over 100 extra to get this flight then competition just to get there as soon as possible/smallest amount of time traveling. My 9 hr travel became 18. 2 flights became 3. And all they offered me was 75 dollar coupon"
Pros: "I missed my flight and the lady who helped me get on the next flight was so helpful!"
Cons: "On my flight I was freezing. I saw first class received blankets and many of them were not being used. I explained to the flight attendant how cold I was and asked if I could purchase a blanket. I’m a very understanding person, but even after all of my attempts to warm up (i.e., drinking hot water, moving around, etc.) I was miserable and on the brink of tears. I understand staff must follow company policy but I found this to be horribly inhumane. After reaching out to corporate my issue was never resolved."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for a sardine can, but that is a given these super efficient cramming of people on the plane days. But the seats were clean and comfortable, the flight crew was professional, and the trip uneventful."
Cons: "Bigger seats are probably to much to hope for..."
Pros: "Crew was great and with 100% occupancy they hustled is on and were great at getting the carryons squared away to be ready before scheduled departure"
Pros: "Flight was on time, service was great & schedule was convenient for me as s traveler."
Cons: "Flight attendant didn’t give safety demo! Planes very nasty -"
Pros: "Everything and the smiles."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything."
Cons: "Screens on the back of the seats. Long flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was nice"
Cons: "Could have had games on screens on 2nd flight--or anything like that on first flight. Beverage service was extremely slow on 2nd flight."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "For real? Just cookies?"
Pros: "How's things were directed."
Cons: "I wish the boards on the screen were bigger so we could read from a distance. To check flights.. baggages and gate numbers."
Pros: "Everything!"
Pros: "2 hours 20 minutes late. Cramped seats with zero elbow room."
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is top-notch on-time comfortable seating service was impeccable and a great experience all around can't wait to fly them again"
Pros: "On time, good leg room, clean, pleasant crew"
Cons: "Must bring your own entertainment system or pay a screen to use on the flight."
Pros: "I liked the service from the associates overall."
Pros: "My beef dinner wasn't horrible. It was mediocre."
Cons: "Where do I start... even though I booked my flights in late July for this late August trip, and even spoke to a representative over the phone about my dog being my carry on item, they never mentioned to me that my first row seats in First Class didn't allow dogs. I had chosen my seats so my partner and I could obviously sit together, but on the day of my flight(s) is when they decided to change my preferred seat which I paid to reserve and moved me into another row in First Class but without sitting by my partner. We had to get our seats fixed before each flight which should have either been alerted to me in the first place or automatically found us seats together. Also, the First Class check in before TSA was useless, as we had to go through the Assistance line anyway and it added considerable time to my trip. Also, once we were at the gate, First Class didn't even board first, but had to wait after three different groups of people were allowed to board first (families with children, injured people, and veterans). While boarding them with some priority is not the issue it's that first class should go before these, then those special groups, THEN general boarding. What was the allure and advantage of First Class? Once I boarded my flight to Seattle and had finally been approached (in flight) by my stewardess about my meal and drink options, she easily asked others before me and listed their options but with me stared blankly and gave me a judgmental look when I ordered champagne and dinner, something almost every other person before me had said to her. After that, getting service was a joke. I had to press the call button to even get her to come by when I needed hot water for my asthma cough attack, and she never even returned to me so I could continue getting more hot water (that I needed). I felt she was doing this out of racism, as I was one of the only brown people in First Class and as I observed, the only one she singled out for this behavior. Also, the in flight tablet to watch movies had grainy, low resolution and all my films were edited for children (curse words were badly edited out) and I think this is unnecessary for anyone unless they are seated with children. I couldn't imagine paying for that tablet and watching such low quality videos on it at a further extension of that cost. Finally, I was accosted by this stewardess again as we were landing for my dog's carrier bag not being shoved even further under the seat in front of me (bear in mind, I never moved my dog or her bag at any time after I had initially placed her under her seat) and honestly I found that to be pretty insulting and humiliating when all I was doing was sitting there. First Class came with literally no perks other than alcohol and subpar food, which I would not pay that extravagant price for ever again. In fact, it left me with no intention at all to continue ever using services with Alaska airlines, even though I have to travel to Alaska often."
Pros: "worst flight ever on Alaska air. paid full fare first class and treated like a freeloader. hate to see their reputation go downhill. but like most airlines now, they are not interested in the premium customer. Ill go back to Delta..."
Pros: "TMobile customers get an hour free WiFi"
Cons: "It took way too long to get a drink and the plane was hot as Satan's taint."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "They sent one of two bags on an earlier flight than we were on and we thought they had got lost"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew and the ability to change seats when it was not a full plane."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of the 737, they are just not comfortable for me. But it is ok and the flight is not too long."
Pros: "Awesome services from the crew, very accommodating"
Cons: "It's all perfect"
Pros: "I was completely satisfied with my trip per usual :)"
Pros: "Alaska airlines always does a great job"
Pros: "We arrived late for a connecting flight--that was about to leave--and were transported by van literally from the plane to the connecting plane. The driver quickly took all our boarding passes and checked us in at the gate. We left just a few minutes later! The crew helping us make that flight were so quick and took care of us. The other travelers and I were impressed and very grateful to barely make that flight. We were all sure we would miss it when we first landed. Thank you to all you wonderful people who made that happen!"
Cons: "I'd like to see movies on the flight for no charge. But we don't live in those days anymore, do we?"
Cons: "They ran out of food by the back of the plane where I was."
Pros: "All on time, nothing out of ordinary, on time."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was great"
Cons: "Why does layovers at anchorage are never less than four / six hors??"
Pros: "For the most part everything was good"
Cons: "The plane was small and the guest in the seat next to me occupied his seat and made himself comfortable enough to extend himself into my space as well. I paid for my seat and didn't expect to have to share it with anyone else. It made the three hour flight a bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "I was seated in 19A and they had already ran out of the Chefs sandwiches by time they got to my row."
Pros: "The staff was awesome! Thank you! It was my first time flying Alaska & the ticket crew was great coming from Alaska to Denver. I will definitely fly Alaska airlines more now."
Cons: "Obliged pay for drink"
Pros: "has better leg room than American airlines has."

The seat back entertainment screen didn’t work at my seat. Staff was great.

The plane was hot. my seatbelt was too small; of the 4 planes we were on on this trip, this was the only belt I had a problem with. The in-flight entertainment screen was not responsive so it was stuck on one movie the entire flight. This experience was very much unlike any other Delta experience.

Airport experience is exhausting. Extremely long lines for check-in and then even longer lines at TSA. Hand sanitizer stations are almost all empty and in the mens room, people are crowding together to get soap from one dispenser that has just a bit left... flight was no better than Southwest Airlines, and it took over an hour for the bags to start coming out. Delta bag claim attendant just said, "I don't know what's going on with them, just wait a bit longer".

As with the outbound flight, this return flight was not full - maybe 40-50%. As they started boarding they announced they located a few people the help with 'load a balance' of the aircraft. What they had done was to compress all passengers in the middle of the plane leaving no space between anyone. It is difficult to understand why everyone is required to wear Masks, then relocated to remove all space between passengers, when there was ample room to allow everyone to be seated with space between.

Great service during the pandemic.

As a silver medallion I don’t know how to request upgrade and when I call delta I have been on hold 3 times for over 2 hours each and can’t reach anyone.

Pilots found a smooth flight path! Wowza!!

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."
Cons: "No baggage space in overheads. Despite being in an early boarding group"
Pros: "We flew from Anchorage to Boston via Seattle. If there had not been a delay in Anchorage, the flight would have been excellent. However, there was a mechanical problem earlier in the day with a plane to Cincinnati. Our flight was scheduled to leave Anchorage at 4pm, but Delta decided to take our pane from us and use it as a substitute for the original but nonfunctional Cincinatti plane. A ridiculous decision. The Cincinnati people already had missed all their connections, but now all the Seattle people missed theirs as well. When we finally got to Seattle 3 hours late (just before midnight), the desk agent said that Delta had no hotel rooms for us and also no hotel vouchers. We thus had to find a room and pay for it on our own. The next day, we had been rescheduled to Detroit and then on another flight from there to Boston. The flight to Detroit arrived nearly 30 minutes late, and we just barely made our connection. Had we missed it, we would have had to spend that night in Detroit. Delta did its best to keep the two of us together. On the Seattle-Detroit flight we were on opposite sides of the aisle in the same row, but that was in a row right behind a bulkhead, making it easy for us to walk over to each other. On the Detroit-Boston flight we were next to each other. Both flights were completely full, so Delta must have made some effort to keep us together as well as possible."
Cons: "Delta should not have made the dumb decision to take the Seattle-bound plane and use it as a substitute for the malfunctioning Cincinnati plane. Delta should have provided accommodations for the stranded travelers once they arrived in Seattle."
Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "The crew members were nice and didn't bother while sleep when giving out snacks & drinks (I've had this done to me before, annoying). Plane was comfortable because it wasn't packed, so was able to have a seat empty in-between me. The entertainment offered was really good, the connecting to the Go-inflight WiFi was a bit difficult, but no biggie."
Cons: "THE DELTA TERMINAL AT HARTSFIELD AIRPORT, ATLANTA, IS DIS-ORGANIZED!!!! THERE WAS NO ONE GIVING PROPER INSTRUCTIONS FOR DROPPING BAGS OFF, PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVERY KIND OF MADE LINE!!! ALMOST 30 - 40 MINUTES OF WASTED TIME, THIS AND THE SLOWEST TSA PROCESS CAUSED MANY TO PROBABLY MISS THEIR FLIGHTS, INCLUDING ME (THANKFULLY MY FLIGHT WOUND UP BEING 3HS DELAYED - THAT'S NEXT). DELTA SHOULD INFORM TRAVELERS ABOUT TIMES WITH THEIR BAG DROP AND TSA!!! 3HRS TO GET A SMALL PART THAT ONLY TAKES 2 MINUTES TO FIX, I'M VERY GRATEFUL IT WAS FOUND WHILE ON THE GROUND, BUT AFTER 1 AND HALS HOURS COULDN'T WE HAVE JUST CHANGED PLANES!?!?! I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HOME AFTER 10A, WASN'T UNTIL ALMOST 2P.."
Pros: "everything was just as comforting as it was pre-pandemic"
Pros: "Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I waited for over 40 minutes for someone to answer my call button. And then they just turned it off without asking me or anyone in my row if we needed something."
Pros: "Quick flight with basic service."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Pilots and crew were amazing"
Cons: "It was perfect"
Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."
Pros: "The little food packets were cool and convenient."
Pros: "We've always enjoyed flying Delta and this trip had been just as nice as the previous ones we have taken through this airline."
Cons: "Our stewardess/stewards seem to be incredibly cranky on this trip and very unapproachable. They must have been having an "off" day I guess."
Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."
Pros: "Crew was solid."
Cons: "Don’t change my seat. Not on time. No food. Luggage with legally checked firearm sent to the wrong airport."
Pros: "Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "Crew was great, comfort+ definitely has more leg room."
Cons: "Beer not guaranteed on flight for Delta comfort plus."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost."
Pros: "Free entertainment"
Cons: "More comfortable seating"
Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Cons: "Miniature candy bars are not sufficient for an hour and a half flight."
Cons: "The Anchorage airport was FREEZING cold and it was August, maybe a little less AC IS IN ORDER"
Cons: "It made no sense to board an hour and a half before takeoff."
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Video system locked up at my seat"
Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Pros: "Boarded and left JFK on time and arrived 15 minutes early to Seattle. Love DELTA."
Pros: "The nice staff and entertainment options."
Cons: "I usually fly delta and have a great experience - unfortunately my flight from Detroit to Seattle was not. To start off, i was flying with two other people and we were not able to get seats together, and the whole seating process with delta is really difficult even when I had called weeks in advance to see if they could try and seat us together. I understand with main cabin tickets you can only choose your seat as you check in, but it would be nice to be able to request seating with a person/group you are flying with. I was placed in the very back row of a busy flight, and noticed that the horrible smell from the bathrooms which made it unpleasant. As said above, I normally have a pleasant experience.. but being a delta sky member I feel as though i do not really receive any differences as to a non-member. I hope this review helps for the next customers! Thank you."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the flight attendant gets the order starting from the back and by the time she gets to the front there's no more selection for breakfast except for what is left that nobody like."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"
Pros: "We boarded quickly, in zones. Staff were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Perhaps more than just 2 episodes of some TV programs eg Goldrush. Also more current shows."
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: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Pros: "Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available."
Cons: "No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding."
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."
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. :)"
Cons: "N/A"
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: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "On time. Nice crew. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "More entertainment variety."
Pros: "Crew were fine- did what they had to do: distributed tiny bottle of water, picked up trash, were polite to passengers. Otherwise, no interaction."
Cons: "Crowded airplane during a pandemic. Greed motivates Sun Country Airlines- overcrowding, seats are paid extra, baggage is extra including carryon. Flight arrived on time, but it took two (2) hours to get out of the airport, waiting for a gate and baggage. Landed at 10:10p- left airport with bag at 12:10a. Will try never t o fly with them again!"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The airfi wifi was very intermittent. That should be addressed for international flights! Also, seat was supposed to have a usb cord and there wasn’t one. We would have picked a different airline for an international flight had we known that. Tray backs were dirty too."
Pros: "The entertainment was great surprise and the crew helpful in getting everyone connected."
Cons: "Boarding! Other airlines are boarding from the back to the front. Absolutely no social distancing on this flight...by the time I was called to board, proceed to the back of the plane the others in my row had to get up & move so I could get to my window seat. In a world of technology, boarding can be done more efficiently."
Cons: "Well, you could have felt that when there is an unprecedented pandemic illness and federal guidance against travel that you don't doubly penalize customers who (1) cannot travel due to the extraordinary public health crisis of COVID 19 and, (2) are devastated that he cannot celebrate his best friend's 40th birthday despite being the thing he looked forward to for months and would love to use a travel voucher in the future when this whole thing eventually blows over. Imagine what your company could gain by being good."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Boarding passes were hand written, very 1980s or earlier"
Pros: "I’m not sure what I missed when I booked our tickets a couple months ago, we never got email or text reminder for check in. I thought they may just not have online check in option for certain routes. Then we found out people from same flight did get reminder. My husband and I both have globe entry. They did it right when we flew out. On the way back, there was no TSA sign on my boarding pass, so I was redirected to regular line. The plane wasn’t full on the returned flight, yet they assigned seats indifferent rows and way back of plane. I notice there were some empty seats in the front and middle of plane, they packed a lot of people in the back and separated people who traveled together but not paid and selected seats. Is it policy of Sun Country airline? Last time we took Sun Country, they didn’t assigned seats accurately although we paid fee for selected seats. After sending in complain, they did refund the selected fee for my husband. Hope they would see this and improve their ticketing."
Cons: "Seats are comfortable. Flight attendants are giving service and meeting our needs."
Pros: "The plane crew was great!"
Cons: "My husband is still in Boston because he was not allowed to check in. We tried all morning to check in and we kept getting an error message. I then tried calling and sat on hold for 45 minutes before I was disconnected!! I figured we were close to the airport so what’s the point. We dropped off our rental and my husband realized his cell phone was still in the car, he went back for it. Myself and the other couple checked in and went to the gate. By the time my husband got back to check in, he wasn’t allowed since it was less than 45 minutes before take off! The gate agent told me the flight was over sold and he wouldn’t get a seat anyways. The agents could have cared less. Not accommodating what so ever. Now he sits and waits hoping to fly out at 9 pm, it’s not a guarantee. So now here we are home and he’s not. Very frustrating. No one really seems like they want to help."
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: "On time."
Cons: "Some seats were loose."
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: "On July 7th, I was flying from JFK to MSP and then from MSP to PDX. Somewhere on the way, Sun Country Airlines lost my bag and they don't seem to have any idea where it might be. I was forced to spend my entire vacation without my bag. It's been 16 days, we called the baggage services office several times, wrote e-mails, even talked to someone in person in the MSP office and yet nobody's able to help. All we got were promises for a call back about the status of the claim, but nobody ever calls or responds to e-mails."
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."
Pros: "The flight was quick and had friendly crew."
Cons: "I was so upset by all the surprise fees involved. I felt completely scammed and taken advantage of. I have flown sun country many times and had no complaints but this will be the last after pricing changes. First in order to check in we had to pay $11 to reserve a seat- that should be a given when you pay hundreds for a ticket. Then the luggage fees were $20 for a checked bag and $30 for a carry on!!! It pretty much forced us to check a bag to save the money, and then they lost our bag. It was a direct flight, not sure how that happens. And the last and worst fee is traveling with a pet, they charged $199 to bring my 5lb dog on board. Nobody even saw her or checked for her ticket, what on earth is the $199 for when the dog fits in a bag under the seat in front of me. I have had to spend $120 before but an average fee is $60. I would have never brought my dog had I known it would cost $400 round trip. I’m so upset and will never fly sun country again."
Cons: "My hand piece baggage was being charge $45. and to check my hand piece in $25. {Bull crap} American airline has one personal item and one hand piece Free. We were sitting in the plane before take off with no air conditioning until we got up in the air. {Bull Crap} I and all my family and friends will stick with American Airline. No more sun country."
Cons: "My father also had a seat that would not recline. Not good for a 5+ hour overnight flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late departure, dirty plane, hidden expenses"
Pros: "Staff was genuinely very pleasant and the boarding process (mind you the flight was half full) was fairly quick. Ha - then again, no one really had carry on baggage, so kept things easy ;p"
Cons: "I booked with Sun Country because rates were significantly cheaper than with Alaska and my priority was to book a nonstop flight. What they don't tell you when booking, is all of the fees associated with your flight that you pay AFTER booking. Baggage Fees: Sun Country doesn't allow you to take more than a personal item on the plane without a fee. It's $20 to check a bag (which you pretty much have to do, as their carry on bag dimensions are smaller than the average roll-a-board bag), and $30 if you want to carry a bag on. Per person. So there's $80 gone for my fiance and I, round trip. Seat Fees: Yes, you heard me right - then you have to PAY FOR YOUR SEAT. I'm sorry - what did I pay for when I purchase my ticket?? The front of the coach cabin starts at $25 per seat (including exit rows), $20, $11 towards the middle, and $2 at the back of the plane. Ok, so apparently if you check in online, you have to select a seat and you have to pre-pay for bags. Ok, felt like I was stiff armed here. The fiance and I decided to go with the $2 seats - can't be that bad, right? Boarding and flight crew were lovely - no complaints here. The plane itself, and the additional costs associated in-air...another story. We were going to a wedding, so he had his suit - the flight attendant let us know the plane didn't have a closet (wait, what?!) so we had to lay it down in one of the overhead bins. Don't worry folks - the bins were next to empty across the entire plan (again, wait, what?!) because of course no one wanted to have to pay $10 more to carry on a smaller bag than it would cost them to check a NORMAL bag. One of the two bathrooms was working, and the entire back of the plane smelled like feces was being recycled through the air system. No wonder these were $2 seats. The aisle was full of people standing the whole flight because the plane only had one working restroom. Entertainment? Hope your phone is charged - the planes are old and don't have outlets. The options for 'entertainment' offered for free on larger carriers like Alaska, are $15 per device on Sun Country - so let's say that's another $60 round trip if we each wanted a 'normal' flight amenity. TOTAL - we're now looking at $144 of charges I would never have imagined ON TOP of the fees I had paid when booking. Next time, I'll go with Alaska - I know what to expect, and know there are no real hidden charges anywhere. At that rate, the cost isn't that different either."
Cons: "The seats don’t give much leg room and no plug ins available for phone/iPad. Guess I’m used to Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came before 50min to boarding and they didn’t allow us to board the flight.. the staff said they have closed the gate .we can schedule u for next day flight.. not even next flight.. next day.. what the hell! What had to pay extra 266$ for hotel reservations.. we already paid 1152$ for the air ticket before.... overall it was a bad first experience with sun country airline...I will never recommend to my family and friend in future."
Pros: "I always love to fly Sun Country. In flight everything has always been awesome."
Cons: "I went to the counter in Denver to ask the gate agent where my seat was (middle or aisle) and if I could get it moved. The agent said he would help me once he was done setting up. I sat there for 15-20 minutes while he moved the ropes around (for the line), set up his mouse, found a mouse pad and set that up, found signs to put up at the desk and made sure they were in the right spot. He was on the computer for a good 5 minutes writing notes on a paper. I waited patiently, but was getting really annoyed that he couldn't look up my seat quick and then go back to setting his desk up. Finally, he took my ticket, did not apologize for my wait or thanked me for being patient, and just said he had no seats. I waited 20-minutes, which then I didn't have time to eat before we boarded the plane. I was extremely disappointed in him telling me he'd help, did not communicate that I needed to wait for him for that long and then wasn't nice enough to thank me for waiting. Incredibly disappointed in this service."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and were all settled in when they discovered an issue with the wing. We all deplaned one hour after we were supposed to take off and got in lines to be re-booked on another flight the next day (10am, not an option for us). Luckily, my partner found a delta flight going out that night so we booked the flight while waiting in the sun country line and ran, just barely making it."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
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"
Cons: "This was a red eye flight and the attendant was the loudest on flight. Constantly walking about and talking loud. Then just when the pilot indicated that we would be making initial descent - I quick got up to go to the bathroom and the attendant followed me, knocked on door and said I couldnt use the bathroom because we were less than 10,000 feet. Then about two minutes later, I hear a toilet flush and turn around and the same attendant who tells me that I cant use the restroom - comes out of bathroom door! She had long brown hair and glasses. So its ok for her to use bathroom but not me? And we didnt even land for another ten minutes!"
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: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The people working at the desk at the gate laughing and running around pretending there was no delay. Only announcing the plane had issues when we were supposed to be departing. Waiting an hour later to announce we needed a new plane. Finally leaving two hours past schedule. Arriving to Minneapolis late and missing my connection. Being told to go back to ticketing and they new what was he opening yet they had no idea. Not getting a refund for my checked bag. Having to beg for a morning flight. Behind transferred to a different airline all together. Waiting for luggage that had already been in the baggage claim office for over an hour but no one had said anything. Worst airline ever. No wifi. Flight attendants were rude. Asked for a seat belt extender three times and was only given one when the plane was about to lift off. You're reading that correctly, the plane was moving and I still did not have a seat belt on. Worst airline ever."
Pros: "This was my first trip using Sun Country and the departure and return flights were direct. I would use this airline again. I like their process for boarding flights. The flight staff were kind and courteous. We took off and landed safely (HUGE PLUS)! At the gate, I sat near the counter and saw how the gate staff treated customers. It was evident they cared about their job and the customers they serve. There was a minor issue when 1 of 2 wheelchairs made it to the gate. They worked hard to track down an additional wheelchair for a customer getting off a flight. They treated customers with questions and requested seat reassignments kindly and were clear and composed in their communication."
Cons: "The seat was rather uncomfortable. It was dirty and hard. I was somewhat disappointed that there were no "complimentary" snacks, but if it's meant to kee fares low, I'm all for it. I'll bring my own then."
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online due to unknown "server error". The guy at the airport said they had a system failure the previous night - no info on the site though, so we've lost 45 minutes retrying check in online. The plane itself was definetely not renovated for quite some time (the interior). Not too comfy seats, but had worse. Boarding was a bit unusual - they're splitting the passengeres to maaaaaany groups - military, no carry-on luggage, disabled, with kids, with carry on to put under the plane, first class and finally the regulars... Not sure if that actually speeds up the process, seems officious.."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the staff friendly."
Cons: "A few complimentary snacks would have been helpful, as I started getting a headache from hunger. We sat in the Tarmac for an extra hour before we left. Also, some began-friendly options would have helped."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Nothing. The experience was awful"
Cons: "The flight got delayed by over 4 hours without explaination as to why. There was no one to ask at the counter. When I called the number they said the wait time was 30 mins to speak with a Rep. As I was waiting and automated system started talking, saying the reason you have a longer wait than expected time is because Sun Country is trying to incorporate new innovations. You're reaction might be it's crazy and you're right it is. After all this I waited quietly the rest of the evening. Came time for on boarding, the team was highly UNTRAINED. I watched them switched TWO mothers with infants from line tonline multiple times the lines got out of control people were literally jumping lines. No sense of leadership nor organization. Literally take this as a warning from someone who has had multiple bad experiences with the same airlines in the last year and half. I am done with Sun Country!"
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"

Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me.

Status notifications

Better, more recent entertainment selections

Pros: "This was the worst flying experience I have ever encountered."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac 3 hours, then deplaned to a holding area for another hour and then were told the flight would be delayed until 1 pm the next day. I booked this flight in order to arrive home 7 hours earlier than originally planned on Alaska Air. I finally arrived 20 hours LATER THAN I WOULD HAVE ARRIVED!"
Pros: "The crew member was not helpful with my need at all and just ignored my request to change my seat (which was empty). I am very disappointed and had a bad experience!!"
Cons: "The crew needs to be helpful and be courteous."
Pros: "Felt like a sardine, packed in tightly. Crew was pleasant though."
Pros: "Crew were lovely, let me sit in the cockpit. Drinks/snacks were rapidly distributed to facilitate sleep during the redeye, legroom in my extra legroom seat was sufficient, and bathrooms were large. Also, we left swiftly and arrived on time."
Cons: "Lack of IFE screens was disappointing and the seats had zero padding."
Cons: "Too crowded c19"
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Aisles were too narrow and everyone was touching each other even when they didn’t want to. Seats were uncomfortable and narrow"
Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Pros: "Yes and Yes"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat were comfortable."
Cons: "Don't charge for wifi. It should be free."
Pros: "That we got there on time. And landed safely."
Cons: "Honestly I have no complaints but they could at least serve something for a 6 hour flight"
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "The only decent point was the food. Not great but at least edible."
Cons: "Since check in in São Paulo was a complete chaos. There were only 2 people helping on check in (in machines) and these people were still not helping people (like me) with questions about on how to do check in in those machines. On the other hand to dispatch the bags there were almost 8 attendants to receive the bags. Ridiculous! I’ve tried calling American Airlines and Latam several times to assign a seat for me and they swore there were only middle seats but I know how airlines work to make extra money on these seats. At the end, they only gave me a middle seat option and I had to take I.t of course. On the plane I realized there were dozens of empty seats and yet they made sure not give them to me or anyone else. Unbelievable! Unfortunately I still have to use AA on my way back to Brazil. After this, I’ll chose another airlines for sure. Also, the 3,4,3 arrangement is ridiculous: there’s no corridor space making people touching you everything someone passes by your seat. And boy! Those seats are so uncomfortable and there’s no way to incline the chair so you can even have a little rest (because it’s impossible to even sleep on those seats). The crew were simply doing their jobs! No pleasure! No smile! No engaging with anyone unfortunately! They looked miserable and I asked for water and the flight attendant NEVER brought me anything. Seriously! Water is free!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "The entertainment and food on the flight were excellent and the crew were kind and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't much legroom in the economy section. Another problem - which is probably related to Heathrow airport and outside of the crew's control - was that the staff at the airport rushed us tremendously during boarding, saying that the flight would close half an hour in advance. I had never seen boarding close that early and it was very frustrating, because the boarding then took a very long time, since they searched us for no reason, and our flight ended up taking off 30 minutes late! As passengers, we felt very rushed, it seems, for no reason."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "This had to have been among the worst flights I have ever experienced in 50+ years of flying to 86 countries. First, an e-mail before I left my Paris apt that it would be 1 hr late departing. THEN the announcement ON BOARD that the flight would make a REFUELING stop in Bangor Maine (the eqpt was a 20 yr old 757 meant for a medium-range domestic route instead of Paris-NY). So it was FOUR HOURS LATE arriving, including an extra hour on the ground in Bangor because they'd lost their landing slot (tho they lied about "bad weather" at JFK) ... a succession of lies and incompetence. Headphone jack didn't even work at the seat ... the movie was a US film dubbed into French anyway! Gawd what incompetence. A letter Fedexed to Doug Parker, AA's CEO, was not even acknowledged.... and I do 35,000 air miles a year on AA. THE WORST."
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I hadn't realized that British Airlways had contracted the flight out to be operated by American Airlines. The flight was delayed in Paris and I ended up missing my connecting flight through JFK to DC. Though we were told on the plane that we would be given assistance upon landing and helped in an expedited manner through customs, instead I was briefly informed I had missed my connecting flight, handed an envelope, and told I needed to now travel to Laguardia Airport. No other information or assistance was provided. I was not given a reason why I needed to travel an hour in NYC traffic to switch airports nor was I given any help through customs. The shuttle I was told to take was unable to take me to the correct terminal, so I needed to get on a secondary shuttle. Again, after a 7 hour international flight, little assistance or aid was provided. I was barely able to make it through security in time to catch the new flight. Additionally, the actual flight from Paris to JFK lacked basic in-flight entertainment that almost any international flight would have. I will not be traveling on American Airlines again, and I am hopeful that Kayak and BA will be more clear in the future."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."

United is my favorite. They are so much better with service and staff and landings. I've been flying with them for over 40 years. The seats are the only thing that could be better by being a little bigger. Otherwise, fantastic flight.

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The cabin pressure gave me such a migraine, I couldn't think"
Pros: "Team worked well together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for my device. An educational label would help."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Gate agent at SF was rude and unprofessional. While waiting, gate agent at gate 65, flight 647 started the following, “group 1 boarding, group 2 boarding...everybody, let’s go let’s go”. She went on to call out one, Hispanic customer with limited English, “come here, you can board now”, rude rude."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Small seats. United is shrinking the hell out of these seats, and I am not a big guy. Free snacks are sugary and paid snacks are overpriced."
Pros: "Can’t think of a darn thing."
Cons: "There were no power outlets or USB ports on the plane (at least in coach). Strange for a cross-country flight. Also, if you drop something or want your bag from under the seat in front of you, forget about picking it up unless you want to ask your seat mate if they mind your head in their lap. I am a small person, but not a contortionist. Limited entertainment."
Pros: "Not a lot to say really from a positive, In Europe if we had to fly over 4 hours the airlines put on larger planes, this plane was small for a 6+ flight"
Cons: "Small plane for a 6+ hour flight, food is . sub standard, if you want to watch the onboard entertainment you need to do so from you phone or Ipad, you need their app installed first and flash player, if not your screwed. They allow you to download their flash player but it does not work."
Cons: "The flight staff was rude, the wrong gas was put in the plane causing a delay, I missed my connection because of this where they wrote it was delayed because "it was snowing in Savannah" which was a blatant lie, but made it so they did not have to help me in any way since their delay was "weather" related. They could not get my to my destination until noon the next day which forced me to buy a new flight on Alaska air. My flight on Alaska was absolutely fantastic and I regret ever buying any United flight and will not in the future."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi. I find this unacceptable, especially because the airlines charges upwards of $80 for an Economy Plus seat and then one needs to $26.99 for wi-fi for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "Staff was very good at their job/duties."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "I didn’t like not having to choose our seat assignments after we booked our flight. I have used Kayak on many occasions and I was able to choose my seat after booking. I was not able to do that after I booked my flight."
Pros: "able to use a personal device for entertainment."
Cons: "Seats did not have power outlets and were very close together. I am not a tall person and still had issues with not enough leg room."
Pros: "As a result of extensive business travel, my husband and I enjoy premiere status with United . We love the airline, because even when we buy inexpensive tickets on our own dime for family travel, we are treated exceptionally well and often upgraded. The flight was on time, the ground and cabin crew friendly and the captain competent. That works for us!"
Cons: "I was not able to sit with my husband and the man next to me drank a a bunch of red wine and the attendant brought him whiskey after that until he passed out with his baby over my lap."
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: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Had ro pay for entertainment"
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."
Cons: "This flight was also late, and this was after having to spend the night in the airport"
Pros: "Delay"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington"
Pros: "I liked how there were some (very few) staff that were friendly and helpful. They somewhat eased the nightmare a bit"
Cons: "There were so many delays that could've easily been avoided. To make matters worse there were two United attendants at the gate hastling every passenger preboarding. The two women were so rude and confrontational. Then I board the plane that I had to be rebooked on because of the delays I missed my connection .. and didn't even get the seat I chose. A woman sat in my seat and refused to move, leaving me with a middle seat next to a lady who was so mean. She kept making rude comments to me throughout my 5 hour flight, and proceeded to get intoxicated. I didn't get home till almost midnight..when I should've been home by 9."
Pros: "Having a flight. United Airlines employee at the help desk was very helpful and found the quickest available flight."
Cons: "Got my ticket. Had to run through the airport because the layover time was too short (as it has been on MANY of my flights with United). Attendant that took my ticket was actually rude to me about having a ticket on the plane. Boarding was disorganized."
Pros: "Newark flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. I returned home and Caught another flight the next day through Chicago, as I didn't want to spend the night in the Chicago airport waiting for a connecting flight the next day. The flight crew, United airport personnel, and TSA were all very courteous and professional."
Cons: "There wasn't enough gate personnel to help everyone re-schedule our cancelled flights. The waiting line was very long. All media entertainment had to be paid for in order to access it. Seats were narrow and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Not much lots of crying kids, fully booked, so no escape"
Cons: "It just sucked. Delta on the way to NYC was great and this one was awful."
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: "No wifi... with the amount you pay for the flight, seems insane you have to pay for wifi too"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was very I'll and could not complete this flight. Was told by airline to call Kayak for changing date of flight for $50 vs $200 they would charge. Ticket was less than $200. I called Kayak. They said sorry it will cost you $200 per airline policy. Either way, this is unacceptable to me. I will stick with Southwest who let's you change flights on all fares if you use it within one year. So since change fee was more than ticket I just ate the cost. Not happy with UNITED or KAYAK. Won't use either one again."
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Pros: "Roomy exit row seats."
Cons: "Having flown on several other air carriers in the past two years, United's inflight entertainment is poor. Don't make us use our own devices - that's just cheap on your part."
Pros: "Upgraded me to a bulkhead seat to accommodate my 6ft 4 inch frame!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "At 6' tall I'm not exactly TALL, SLIGHTLY above average yet as hard as I pressed back into the seat I wasn't​ able to squeeze Even a milimeter of leg room. I spent 2+hrs in moderate pain with no options. The seat sold to me WASN'T big enough for a person talker than 5'10". I felt ripped off. At age 41 I've NEVER had a flight with less leg room. Ever, not on a commuter flight or anything. It was a very painful experience. I had to ice my knee caps afterwards."
Cons: "ZERO LEG ROOM AT ALL. PAINFUL to say the least."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived about half an hour early. That was great because I could grab a leisurely lunch before taking off on my next flight."
Pros: "We were delayed due to some maintenance issues, but the crew did a great job of keeping us updated on what was happening. Other than that, a normal flight."
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: "One of the crew members at the gate! I believe her name was Jackie or jaciquiene at SF was the most inconsecrate women I have ever met! She was yelling at me to put my bag in the bag to see if it will fit. She was completely rude and acted like she hated her job! I will NEVER fly with UNITED again! I will be contacting United regarding this issue as well! The other lady at the gate called her led and after that she contacted her supervisor and they also didn't let me on the flight! This was the worst experience I have EVER had! I will NEVER FLY WITH UNITED AGAIN."
Pros: "I thought the newer model 737 with the ambient lighting and redesigned overhead compartments gives the plane a less claustrophobic feel. The pilots did a great job navigating through potential turbulence and the flight crew was attentive and on point. A better experience than the crew on the flight from Seattle to Houston four days before. It is my understanding that Continental crews remained intact upon the merge and my assumption was this was a Continental crew versus the United crew that was not as good."
Cons: "The boarding process with the arbitrary assignment of boarding group 5 giving us no chance to bring our one bag on the plane. There is no real enforcement of the carton policies of these airlines which makes it frustrating for those who follow the rule only to be punished and forced to check the bag and go through baggage claim."
Pros: "Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds."
Cons: "most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear."
Cons: "The difference in entertainment options between different United flights is frustrating. Unlike some flights, which offer a bunch of free movies and shows you can watch on your phone or tablet, this flight offered a small selection of movies I could pay $8 for access to, which started at pre-determined times so you might pay for them and not even be able to catch the movie from the beginning. My original flight offered an outlet to charge my phone and a fairly large selection of free movies, so I watched 3 movies and the time went by quickly. My return flight did have an outlet, but I didn't want to pay for a bad selection of movies that I couldn't pause or start from the beginning, so it felt like a much longer flight."
Pros: "Mr Anthony Brown, gate crew for United in Chicago remembered that I had asked for an aisle seat and, when one became available, he made sure I got it. I was so grateful for his consideration and professionalism."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Few bathrooms. More cramped."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The United app told us we missed our connection so we had to go stand by on this flight. We later discovered that the original flight was delayed an hour and we could have easily made it. We were told that this fight was overbooked. We almost waited on an even later flight. Luckily we stayed at the gate and found that this flight was in fact only half full. United IT sucks. The entertainment system is horrible. With one exception the FAs were bitter and angry."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 1.5 hours which was not nice and it was a six hour flight and only could receive pretzels without paying for food."
Pros: "Crew was gracious, helpful, and courteous during a terrible and disruptive ordeal for passengers"
Cons: "Being stuck for nearly an hour sweating on a plane with no AC while mechanics were trouble shooting, only to find out that we had to exit the plane, and that it could not fly. Passengers had no idea what to do - whether another plane would be sent for us, whether United would reimburse our ticket if we arranged another flight on our own, etc. We were left to fend for ourselves. I had a wedding to get to with many pre-wedding events, starting this evening. So, I looked for another flight, found one, booked it, and went to United customer service to request reimbursement for my ticket. I was told that United had just learned that another plane was coming for us and would arrive in 30 minutes, at 8:10. (My original flight had been at 6:35). The other flight I had booked was at 10:30 pm. So, United customer service changed canceled my new booking and put me back to my original flight, now arriving at 8:10 and boarding at 8:50. The plane did arrive, but we did not board until 10:50 pm. My flight left at 11:02 pm. Bottom line is that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. I missed an important event that I was supposed to host. I missed my only opportunity to see a dear friend (and guest of honor) - this is someone I have not seen in person for ten years and was the guest of honor at tonight's celebration that I was supposed to host and missed. Furthermire, I could not carry on a bag that I have carried on for years, and that would have easiky fit. Having to check my bag left me without my phone charger. Of course, the fact that we were 4.5 hours delayed meant that I ran out of power shortly into our long flight from Washington. to Seattle. And the food was awful - stale nuts, . ;, b:;"
Pros: "That i finally arrived at my destination"
Cons: "The flight was immorally delayed by 1.5hrs. then by another half an hour. Then there were issues with boarding, which delayed us more. Then the plane was put in a holding pattern (just circling in the area) because there was too much traffic at Seattle. I understand there are many factors that affect flights, but the entire experience today left me feeling really down and disappointed, and unfortunately, annoyed."
Pros: "Flight crew was attentive and kind."
Cons: "We had to sit on the Tarmac for 20 minutes before taking off due to low cloud cover over Seattle."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly"
Cons: "Flight delay"
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: "While waiting in the terminal for everyone to board and the plane to be cleared you got your options of watching everything on the Direct TV headrest screens. It was interesting to see what people watched at 1am (4am my time)."
Cons: "Received another handful of snack mix, which was fine. At least I knew not to eat it this time. Once the plan took off, the headrest screens asked you to pay some ridiculous amount of money to watch them for the hour that we were on the plan. I wasn't surprised, but I never found out who killed the lady in my show. Bummer."
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."
