They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight."

Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated.

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "New Management at Sun Country. Staff were less-than-enthused. Work the timecard, with no passion for the company. Long wait for baggage."

Cons: "The website was really annoying - it wouldn't let me check in or pay for my baggage. Then when I called it took over an hour for someone to answer the phone. I was told if a passenger did not fly both ends of a round trip flight, we would need to pay a $50 cancellation fee for the privilege of not using the ticket we had already paid for. This is also the first airline I have flown that charges for carry ons and also charges for seat assignments during online checkin! That's right, I could have paid an extra $6 to select a middle seat in the back of the airplane! Except the online checkin system kept crashing so I never checked in online anyways. And finally the food options were horrible, the worst I have ever seen. I was really hungry, so I bought one of their snack packs (after the person at the counter assured me there would be sandwiches), and the snack pack was disgusting, even by airplane food standards. I'd prefer flying Spirit Air - at least they are up front about nickel-and-diming their customers. I'll do my best to avoid flying sun country again."

Cons: "Very rude ticket counter. They wouldn’t allow me to to board even though I showed up an hour, twenty minutes before take-off at their online POSTED terminal BUT they’ve moved (unfortunately no update on their web site). By the time I managed to get from terminal #2 to #5 (around LAX on a busy morning), a half hour later, the counter help wouldn’t even consider issuing me a boarding pass!"

Pros: "The service was quick and friendly"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi"

Cons: "My suitcase was left behind I had to pick it up at a later time. My military issued gear was in there and I needed to make sure it would arrive later that day due to me needing my gear the following day. It was flown out with another airline."

Pros: "Safe, smooth flight."
Cons: "Older plane"

Pros: "I had a seat toward the front, so I boarded early-ish, which went smoothly."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. The bottom cushion was worn down, so my butt was sore after just a three hour flight. Also, my neck and back were in pain after getting off the flight. I am in my 20's and don't really get sore neck or back, but the seats were just that bad. However, I did have JUST enough leg room even though I am 6'4". I'll probably avoid this airline in the future just for the horrid seats alone."
