Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew and staff."
Cons: "Gate team at PHX departure was a bit short and delayed the flight by over 40 minutes while offloading passengers from the previous flight. Also boarded most of the flight before they boarded the Comfort+ area. If I would have known that, I would not have paid for the upgrade."
Pros: "Yes, turned out perfect"
Cons: "Awesome accomodations, delta really cares about your needs. Thank you!"
Pros: "On time and comfortable."
Pros: "Flight canceled without notification"
Pros: "Trip was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour"
Pros: "Crew were great. Cookie was good. Seat was comfy to sit in upright."
Cons: "Leg room was poor, flight was overcrowded, seatback wouldn't recline, there simply isn't enough width to the seats in the middle of each row. This should be a perk to balance the perk of a window on one side and extra leg room in the aisle on the other."
Pros: "The staff were lovely."
Cons: "no covid-19 precautions were taken. It was a packed airplane didn't feel comfortable"
Pros: "Plane was new and equipped"
Cons: "In first class we had beef jerky for breakfast"

Pros: "I had been travelling for 2 days with a bad back & everyone was so helpful with my situation."
Pros: "Crew was amazing once again. Friendly and engaging."

Unfortunately having customers not being respectful with how they leave the area they were sitting a mess can make your jobs that much more challenging. Trash cans are not far away!!!"
Pros: "Friendly, patient and helpful employees."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better. We traveled economy and were treated like 1st class."
Cons: "Given we left at 7:15 am, I would’ve liked some food options instead of biscuits and peanuts"
Cons: "No leg room on this plane"
Cons: "Loved it!"
Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "We were delayed by several hours"
Cons: "The exit row that I paid up for, for leg room, didn't have extra leg room. First world problems."
Cons: "I didn't flight because I was tested Covid-19 positive ! I am waiting for AeroMexico to contact me to get and flight back to Minneapolis !"

Pros: "Smooth flight early arrival crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing I enjoy delta"
Cons: "This was a great short flight."
Pros: "Seat average for a small jet"

Pros: "Crew was very welcoming and nice"
Cons: "There was a lot of empty space on the plane I wish they would’ve spaced passengers out evenly."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew helped find a place for my violin. Even though I was early to the gate, they also helped me update my seat before the new flight crew arrived."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats really comfortable!"
Cons: "Headphones sold for $ 2. Headphones preferably free"
Pros: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Cons: "I fly regular this was an excellent flight"
Cons: "My flight from Chicago was two hours late and that's why I missed the flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires. No one helped and did not know that the flight was delayed and I had to find a place to sleep. I'm not satisfied with the experience and I have not yet arrived in Argentina because of the whole"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, pilots informative, and a very smooth and on time departure and arrival!"
Cons: "Sitting in the last row where my seat didn’t recline and it was loud and no window. It was claustrophobic!"
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "No air conditioning. Sat at the terminal in 95+weather, many elderly on the plane in hot weather. Attendants said oh well well at least your not in the back of the plane. Also intercom was set to blaring with a high pitched squealing sound."
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"
Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."
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."
Pros: "Don’t really interact with the crew much as people remain to themselves with Covid. But have always found the crew friendly in past flights"
Cons: "When plane is partly empty due to Covid why do they seat non family members next to each other when they could be placed in a row alone"
Cons: "We are in the midst of a pandemic and while masks were "required," the number of passengers not wearing a mask or wearing a mask incorrectly was obscene. The flight attendants needed to be reminding people and correcting people on their mask wearing. More importantly, the airline needs to be upholding the safety of their passengers! I was also seated DIRECTLY next to another passenger, which breaks all social distancing. And while I repeatedly asked him to fix his mask, it still always managed to fall off his face while sleeping. I know it isn't really the fault of the crew, but I think the airline needs to do a better job."
Cons: "I loved it great crew great pilot great seats! The only I missed was having screens on the back of my seats. Thankfully the inflight WiFi was working fantastic which definitely was a plus! I am looking forward to my next flight in sun country!"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destination."
Cons: "Accommodation for my flight being over two hours late."
Cons: "Be on time next time"
Cons: "I’m extremely frustrated. When I booked my flight, i was told that the flight would NOT be a full flight due to COVID. It was almost completely full. I was not comfortable with that nor did i receive any notification that it was going to be full prior to boarding. I’m extremely frustrated."
Pros: "Well we made it to our destination and it was on time."
Cons: "There was no kiosk, no one working until 6:30 pm, the employees were rude, tossed our bags carelessly, condescending, nonexistent email communication when trying to precheck and make sure we were set up, the girl making announcements kept messing up and getting mad at herself and stopping her announcement so it was hard to keep track of who was boarding. The seats were incredibly tight - OH and it was ridiculous that after purchasing tickets they then hit you with additional fees - like you have to PAY to pick a seat?! And then if you want to bring a carry on it costs the same as a checked bag?! Nickle and diming at its finest. All of the passengers we talked to from our flight all said the same thing. We will never fly Sun Country again."
Pros: "Onboarding was easy and smooth. The plane was clean and the seats were comfortable. WiFi easily connected, too. Much better than expected for a budget airline."
Pros: "Nothing. Delayed for 4 hours. No time change updates were ever provided at the airport. No communications provided as to why our flight was delayed. No other options given. No food or drink vouchers given & of course, no discounts provided for future travel. Not that would EVER fly Sun Country again"
Cons: "Communication and updates. At the very least, food and drink vouchers. 4 hours is a LONG time to be delayed. Extra points had the airline reimbursed their $40 ONE WAY bag fee regardless whether it’s a carry on or checked luggage."
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours due to rain that lasted about 30 minutes"
Pros: "Not crowded, and enough space"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "I got to change my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Our flight was delayed and we were not updated nor given a reason as to why."
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."
Pros: "They got us safely to our destination."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to check in the night before our flight, only to find out that the only way you can do that is to pay money to select your seat. So, we checked in at the airport, only to find out that the cost for a checked bag is now $25 instead of the $20 it would have been to check in early online. Not to mention the fact they charge your for a carry-on which is $30 if you check-in ahead of time, but $40 if you check-in at the airport!! Clearly they want to try to give people an incentive to check-in early, which is fine, but then making you pay extra just to select a seat!! What a joke! We will NEVER fly Sun Country again!"
Cons: "Sun Country is very hit or miss and it all comes down to the flight attendants. I’ve have previous flights with Sun Country where the flights are smiling, kind, and helpful. However this crew didn’t take the time to be helpful and spoke down to the customers. The carts came by and it wasn’t obvious if everyone got a beverage or if was for purchase only. Either way, not the flight attendant’s fault, for me not knowing, but I was uncomfortable asking them because of the crabby looks on their faces and their unwillingness to politely answer questions."
Pros: "Thankful that we got there safely; certainly a competent pilot. Thank you!"
Cons: "Crew members were nowhere to be found; couldn't even flag one down to get a cup of water. The sweet lady in front of me,, thought English was her second language, had a crew member raise his voice to her to tell her to sit down, this after 30 + minutes of her looking to and for to get someone to just get her a cup of water so she could take her medicine. I suppose she should've pushed the attendant button but with English was her second language she must not have known this procedure? I asked for a soda and once he brought me the disgustingly warm soda with cup of ice I had to hold it on my lap the whole time because my tray table was broken. Def could tell that my once-favorite airline has switched ownership. I know changes have to be made in this day and age but it was really gone downhill. I gave you a 5-star Yelp and 5 Star Trip Advisor last year and have talked you up to so many people; sure wish I could do that again. :("
Cons: "Sun Country website was down so I couldn’t check in. I received an error message. When I got to the airport the computers were down so the line was very long. They continued checking people’s bags and when we got to security several peopke missed the 1pm flight Lax to Minneapolis flight. When I tried to rebook the Sun country air employees scolded me and others for coming to the airport late. Long story short I bought and American airlines flight home I’ll never fly with them again... I’ll spread the word amongst my community."
Pros: "The orange juice."
Cons: "No Known Traveler # did not transfer to boarding pass; had to go through regular security instead of TSA Pre. Plane was changed; Got different seat assignment which I paid for. At online check-in I was forced to buy a seat. There was no option to get an assigned seat from Sun Country. After this, plane was changed and my window seat became a center seat. Got zone 5 at check-in even though I checked in within a couple of minutes beginning the 24 hour window. Very unpleasant travel experience."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was attentive and nice. The pilot was talented enough to land in a blizzard. It was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "The seats were assigned at random and virtually no one got to sit with the people they were traveling with. We asked for help with this situation, but I really do not think the flight crew or check-in tried much to remedy. When on the plane the guy next to me was traveling with his family and they were all in separate seats on the plane, including his 8 year old boy, who was crying about it... it was a 5-6 hour flight. The other person next to me was not sitting with his wife, neither was I, it was such a scattered mess, it would've been better to let people just first come first serve their seats."
Pros: "Our first flight was canceled due to snowstorm. Once we were rebooked and ready both flights were great! That’s why we choose Sun Country!!!"
Cons: "During a severe snowstorm Sun Country would not make the call to cancel our flight! Almost everything was canceled at 1pm when they shut down the airport...but our flight and 2 other Sun Country flights. So we had to fight the storm to get there in unsafe conditions!!!! As we watched the storm get worse, we actually had to board the plane! Then we had to deboard when the airport shut down again.. I felt very unsafe! By the time they finally canceled at 5:30 we were barely able to get the last cab from the airport. Sun Country put us in a dangerous situation to save a few dollars by not canceling the flight!! I was a flight attendant for Sun Country for a short time and thought I had seen a lot, but this was a very poor judgement call!!"
Cons: "- Flight was delayed for undisclosed reasons. - Boarding took longer than needed. - Flight Attendants were extremely unhelpful and rude regarding our Emotional Support Animal. - Flight Attendants also seemed unsure of what take off regulations were and scolded us for things other passengers were allowed to do. - Getting our bags from baggage claim took over 30 minutes. - Seats were small and uncomfortable. I'm only 5'8" and my knees were touching the seat in front of me. We will not fly Sun Country again."
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: "On the trip from Los Angeles to Mineapolis, I have my carry on free checked in. I forgot to take my camera out of my carry on when I left it on boarding. When I go back from my seat to take it the personnel did not allow me and instead of telling me the reason with easy English (I still cannot understand spoken English well), he talked to another personnel who might be at the place where the carry on's were. I want to know why I cannot take the camera and if the personnel's behavior is appropriate"
Pros: "In this age of Making America Great Again...people need to learn to mind their own business and just...stop. Never have I been stared down by a flight crew of white folks more in my entire life. It's a little disappointing, as this was a flight back to my home town after years of being away..and Sun Country is based there. You can feel and see the aggressive body language coming at you, so I just ignore till then point It's chrystal clear, then allm of a sudden...the body language becomes self consciousness when they realize...i am here for flight, whatever other agenda you may have has nothing to do with me and won't get my attention. You need more people of color working you flights in and out of the Midwest. There's a certain sensitivity that comes with that. Disappointed, but not surprised."
Cons: "I wasn't even offered food or a drink when the carts rolled. It was so obviously, the old white lady sittikng next to me shot the stewardess a negative glance and all of a sudden it...would you like something to drink..as an after thought. I politely declined and looked out the window and played on my Kindle the entire flight."
Cons: "I was traveling with a lap infant and the flight was more than half empty. The middle seat was empty next to me but the gate agents still would not allow me to bring my FAA approved carseat on board because I had not purchased a seat. Carseats make life so much easier for parents traveling with infants. Additionally it is safer for the infant. Finally, its better for fellow passengers because infants in their carseat can be better pacified while flying. Many other airlines allow carseats carried on when their flights aren't full (for free) and this is why I won't be flying Sun Country again."
Pros: "the flight was on time to take off, arrived early"
Cons: "I don't like that they board randomly, starting from the back of the plane.. Most people book their seat knowing that they know will board first. The seats were uncomfortable on this flight, the back of the seat was at a weird angle and made noise when you adjusted it. seemed like an older plane. Kid behind me kept kicking and pushing her legs on the back of my seat, slamming the tray up and down, talking in a loud high pitched voice... mother next to her did nothing. Flight attendant told the kid once, to back off my seat with her legs... kid kept it up. made for an unpleasant flight."
Pros: "My bag was a couple pounds overweight, but the woman at check-in gave me the opportunity to move things around to make sure my bag was under the 50 pound limit. There was NO WAY I was paying an extra $50 because my bag was a couple pounds over the limit. I was so flustered after moving things between my bags that I walked away after getting my boarding pass and forgot to pay for my baggage. I went back and apologized, and the woman at check-in was very understanding and polite. Boarding the plane was very quick and there were no issues. I was seated next to 2 unaccompanied minors and the flight crew took very good care of them, which was a relief to me."
Cons: "I tried to check-in online the day before my flight and it said that all seats were already booked unless I wanted to pay extra to be in the preferred section or in the exit row. When I got to the airport, I was not allowed to choose my seat and ended up in the very last row on the aisle, when I had already requested a window seat online. Throughout the entire flight, people (including the flight crew) were bumping into me and my seat or using my seat as an arm rail while waiting for the bathroom. Everything with this flight came with an extra fee. I would much rather fly Delta and receive in-flight entertainment, charging stations, and online check-in where I can choose my own seat."
Cons: "I will never fly Sun Country again. They denied me boarding because the plane left early, even though I had checked in online earlier that day, alerted staff in person at the airport that I was on my way to the gate, and arrived at the gate BEFORE the scheduled departure time. One phone call from Sun Country staff could have kept the plane at the gate until the scheduled departure time, and I would have made my flight. This company is not keeping up with its competitors in terms of customer service and convenience, and I will not be giving them my business again."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was in the area of the gate, window shopping. Heard someone say that a flight was leaving early I went to the gate, plane was still there and they wouldn't let me board. They said they were paging me, but saying my name wrong. I was possible 1 minute (until the normal 20 min boarding), They were of no help and this even started before my trip. After calling several times, they would now give me my flight info, said I had to go thru Kayak. I stated they charged my credit card, they should have the info. A big struggle with them. Not happy, missed a leg of my trip and want a refund."
Pros: "voucher for hotel"
Cons: "Sun Country flight was struck by lighting and was diverted. sun country was not helpful and was confused about theire own policies anddid not offer soIutions. This was a familiy get together I had to purchase a flight from delta that left the same time and was able to make the flight, but was rejected by Iceland Air because they had rebook me for the Sunday Flight without communication. I am disappointed in Sun Country as they did not relay the information that I purchase the flight from Delta that lands that same time. I am disappointed that I was not texted with any update as my email and phone number. I am sad because this was a day I lost wiith my family that I have not seen for years. This is time lost that cannot be returned."
Cons: "First, it took an hour to board the plane. If you loaded back to front this could be alleviated. Then the seats are horrible. Hard, short seated and no room. Paid for a cold cheeseburger. What's up with that? Held on to garbage they refused to take until after we were supposed to prepare for landing and got yelled at to put my tray table up even I had just gotten rid of my garbage. It was rude since some other attendant had just refused to help me. Now I sit here getting gassed by them having opened up the back of the plane while we are still stuck on here."
Pros: "I've flown Sun Country in the past once or twice and had generally positive experiences. Sun Country did offer food vouchers of $10 and $12 due to the delays, and $100 towards a future Sun a Country flight, which is more than I could say for Spirit Airlines. The staff that I encountered did the best with the information they had and were always friendly, but they didn't seem to have the information required to help the passengers they were working with."
Cons: "I flew from Minneapolis to Seattle and back for Christmas with Sun Country and each of my flights was delayed by over three hours. The initial flight we arrived at our gate to discover the flight had been cancelled with no warning and we had been switched to a flight leaving six hours later. When we checked in no one said a word, and when we arrived at our gate there was no Sun Country employee to inform us of the change. The only reason that we and our fellow passengers learned of this at all was by checking the departure boards at the airport and learning it had been cancelled. To add insult to injury they forced each of the passengers to go back out to the front ticket counter to have new tickets reissued rather than having them printed out at our gate, meaning we all had to go back through security due to what seemed to amount to the laziness of the carrier. On the return flight my flight was initially pushed back by one hour, then two, and eventually ended with a four hour delay. Several of these changes were made within mere minutes of each other. While I understand that delays happen, that also means rides needs to be reworked, plans cancelled, etc. To have the first few hours of time with family robbed by a delay, and the final hours of time with family marred by having to rework plans and make last second changes is a disappointment."
Pros: "We got a good deal from Frontier Airlines, and decided to try them out. I can say never will I do that again. Our flight was cancelled and they were awful to deal with, leaving us stranded in Orlando. I booked a flight with Sun Country and everything went smoothly with Sun Country. I even was interviewed by the news and told them that we were happy to be with Sun Country- so hopefully that gained you some more business. The crew at the ticket desk, the pilot, and all the flight staff was wonderful. They made an awful day so much better. I am very happy that we were able to find a flight back to Minneapolis with Sun Country. We will for sure fly Sun Country from now on."
Cons: "Only negatives were having to pay for a checked bag and also the seats seemed more narrow then what we were used to. The arm rests didn't go up all the way, so that was slightly uncomfortable. Other than that, we were very pleased."
Cons: "Everyone knows that traveling with a child is tough, but most of us have to do it. All the passengers were very empathetic and trying to help me entertain my child and the flight attendants on both flights to and from were so rude and judgmental with me. They made a tough flight so much more emotionally draining. They gave me looks, as I was walking my child (the only thing that made him happy) they'd say "Where's your seat??" and make us go back to our seat whenever we were up trying to get him to calm down. No turbulence or anything. It was a nightmare! I've used Delta in the past and they were so much more accommodating and helpful."
Pros: "It was less expensive than the other last-minute options I had."
Cons: "The staff and crew were rude from the minute I checked in to the minute I deplaned. The woman at the check-in counter was upset that her printer was malfunctioning and instead of apologizing to the guests being delayed from boarding their flight, she rolled her eyes and grunted at them all. I went out of my way to pack a carry-on sized bag for a week long business trip and was *forced* (not asked) to check it in because the flight was full. The woman at the gate couldn't have been more rude about inconveniencing me and making me late for my first meeting of the week (due to waiting for my checked bag at the wrong carousel--which the crew directed me to). The second leg of the flight, from Minneapolis to LA, was delayed, and my seat/flotation device on that plane kept detached while I slept. Just a nightmare start to finish, and I will never fly Sun Countey again."
Pros: "I understand some technical difficulties are unavoidable within the airline industry, flight staff was very courteous and apologetic of the circumstances."
Cons: "Over an hour flight delay due to defective equipment on the aircraft caused me to miss my connecting flight. Not unusual and understood that these things happen they assured connecting passengers they were working on rescheduling tickets at the next airport. When we arrived things went a little haywire as the majority of passengers had connecting flights and we all had to wait as we explained the situation to the attendants and they made phone calls to get flights rescheduled. There were no flights to Denver with Sun Country that day so they transferred me to Southwest. Again, still trying to be understanding but at this point Southwest put me on another connecting flight to Chicago that didn't leave for over another hour and a half. Then I would finally be able to get a flight into Denver another hour after that flight landed and transferring planes. The fun didn't stop there either, my heart dropped when we had to de-plane the flight to Denver from Chicago because there was a problem with the weather equipment. I was so afraid that the nightmare wouldn't end, I was exhausted from being at the airport so early and having to transfer planes/airports so many times. Thankfully Southwest had another plane the same size that we we boarded within a reasonable amount of time. Whether it's just bad luck or Sun Country could be doing a lot of things differently, I have to say, I will not be flying with them again."
Cons: "ON MY WAY BACK HOME FROM MSP AIRPORT. I GOT TO THE AIRPORT AT 2:10 PM MY FLIGHT IS AT 3:05 PM. I GOT TO THE COUNTER TO CHECK IN TO MY FLIGHT THE PERSON BEHIND THE COUNTER IS TELLING ME THAT YOU CANT CHECK IN YOU ARE LATE FOR YOUR FLIGHT. I TOLD THEM I CALLED LAST NIGHT TO CHOOSE MY SEAT I HAD CHECK IN AND THAY ARE TELLING ME NO YOU DID NOT CHECK IN. I TOLD THEM I HAVE ONE HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT HOW AM I LATE!! I TALKED TO THE MANAGER AND SHE IS TELLING ME THE FLIGHT IS LEAVING 10 MINUTES EARLY. I TOLD THEM NO ONE INFORMED ME THAT THE FLIGHT IS LEAVING EARLY. THEY DIDN'T LET ME GET ON MY FLIGHT. I WAS AT THE AIRPORT ONE HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT. I HAD TO TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO SAN FRANCISCO THAN PAY $300 FOR A FLIGHT BACK TO LOS ANGELES. I REPORT THIS AIRLINE TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU BECAUSE THAT IS A JOKE I GOT TO THE AIRPORT 1 HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT AND I CANT GET ON."
Cons: "Went to check in online and the only seats that were supposedly available were "premium" seats with an upcharge. Obviously a scam to extort more money from their customers. Their app wouldn't allow me to check in otherwise, since I couldn't pick a seat without paying an upgrade fee. We called and waited an hour on the phone, then were told we had seats, but to get to the airport three hours early to pick seats. Got there three hours early and got our seats. This is why I'd rather drive most of the time. If I can drive it in less than 20 hours, I skip flying because it will take at least ten hours to fly by the time you factor in debacles like this, stops, and missed flights. Just not worth it."
Pros: "Direct flight, the gate was close to the security checkpoint in terminal 4"
Cons: "This plane had an hour plus delay. I know these things happen, especially on flights later in the day, so it's not that the flight was delayed. The entire Sun Country staff was unacceptable. First, the airport staff wouldn't tell us when we were boarding or the updated departure time after the first delay. We ended up boarding 15 minutes after the posted departure time with no warning or notice. Once on the plane, the flight crew wouldn't give us a take off time (such as how many planes we were behind in line) or our arrival time in Minneapolis."
Cons: "While returning to my seat after using the toilet I witnessed an older, female, blond flight attendant be inappropriate with a passenger. The passenger happened to have a hijab on. The flight attendant repeatedly, & with a raised voice, told the passenger to go back to her seat and even put her hands on her shoulders three times pushing her in the direction of her seat. Meanwhile, the passenger was in line for the bathroom and, more importantly, was waiting for her much younger brother who was in line 3 people ahead of her; The flight attendant either could not hear us try to tell her that she was waiting for her younger brother or did not care. It made me feel very uncomfortable as she seemed to be singling this woman out. The woman was very appropriate wth her, despite being discriminated against as well as having had been pushed away."
Pros: "The San Francisco based crew and customer service was very welcoming, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "On the return flight (out of their hub airport!), their online system failed so it didn't capture that we had prepaid both our checked bags nor our seat selection. When we arrived at the ticketing counter they were essentially accusational about the issue. We showed the confirmation page on our cell phone and even logged into our mobile banking app to show them and still had to argue about paying again. On top of that, they acknowledged the system was having issues and would do absolutely nothing to help us get seats together (my husband and I), let alone anywhere near what we had selected during the online check-in process (we paid extra for an aisle and middle towards the front of the plane, and they gave us two middle seats in the back of the cabin). There were four empty seats in first class, and they wouldn't even bump up a frequent flyer to give us seats together in coach. Not once did anyone apologize, ask how they could help, or just try to be helpful. Both "managers" were clearly poorly trained in handling these situations and defensive and dismissive (walking away while we were speaking). They didn't even offer a free meal voucher. Nothing was done to help rectify the situation. It was honestly shocking how terrible of an experience it was - no indication that they felt we were a paying customer. There were so many little things they could have done even without changing our seats that would have made the situation better. I will never fly this airline again, out of principle, and will absolutely share my experience with everyone I know. If someone from Sun Country reads this, the managers' names are Oniekey Brown and Jolynn Carpenter. I would suggest your management chain have a conversation with both of them and highly suggest training."
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!"
Cons: "It was a pretty unpleasant ride, I arrived only to find that the size listed for carry-ons on their website was inaccurate se ended up having to check my bag at the gate for a 25$ fine and had to pay another 20$ on the way back. Really expensive especially for a college student who can barely afford it on top of the nearly 500$ ticket. Definitely not worth that especially if they scam you into paying for checked bags. I don't know if it was just this one flight but I don't plan on flying Sun Country again. Horrible experience."
Cons: "Sharing a single gate with 3 airlines leaving at the same time is I'm sure not what anyone wants. Departing time was supposed to be at 1210, instead we took a bus to I think Mexico to board the plane then we taxied the plane all the way back to LAX and took off at 218 (well documented time). I was late for work so I was let go, my wife left me and took our 4 sort of intelligent kids with her. I'm just glad I could write this review before my phone services are shut down do to lack of funds. At the end of the day things could have been worse but I'll survive. "Just keep swimming"-Dory"
Pros: "Nothing, it was awful...read below"
Cons: "My Tiffany necklace was stolen from my luggage As my luggage had a tag on it that it had been gone through...when someone went through my bag, it had jewelry from Tiffanys stolen...I am going to have to call sun country tomorrow to get a replacement of a very sentimental piece of jewelry. I am beyond horrified that this happened...I had know idea sun country airlines crew would steal while working for the airline. Sun country needs to be able to remedy this situation, otherwise I will have to ban the airline for future traveling as well as spread the word to those I know that you can get stolen from employees of sun country while traveling. This is most disturbing. Please advise ASAP. Melissa Sackett Cell phone number: 612-501-7551"
Pros: "Sun Country has a system which promotes smooth boarding. First to board are for those with special needs requiring more time (families with kids, etc.), then the first class passengers, then those without carry-on, or who are willing to leave their carry-on as gate check, then for the first 10 rows, and then the back rows, and then everyone else. This seems to work fairly well since it minimizes jams associated with front row seating first, as well as seating those who have large carry-ons."
Cons: "The only thing is that they should emphasize more that those who board first because they do not have carry-on, but just personal bags, should place those personal bags under the seat rather than use that to board first and then take up valuable space in the overhead compartment. I saw people board first claiming only personal bags, and then they would deposit their bags towards the front in overhead compartments, or they would just put their bags sideways in the overhead--taking up twice as much space as carryon bags going in lengthwise."
Pros: "I haven't flown Sun Country for many years because I couldn't get directly where I was going on that airline. I was so pleasantly surprised on both of my flights--non-stop to and from SFO from MSP--at the cleanliness of the plane, the comfortable seats, the tiny bit of extra knee room made all the difference for me, a long-legged woman of a certain age. The passengers were assigned seats mostly on the aisle and window, giving us an empty middle seat for space and separation of space. That made so much sense. On the flight home, I was not feeling well, and I talked with a Flight Attendant who allowed me to take on of the several empty rows (it was a red eye flight) so I could lie down for a couple hours of the flight. Again, common sense, as the rows were empty, but such a caring gesture. I will sing Sun Country's praises and check their routes first before I make any other arrangements for flights."
Cons: "I booked this flight almost 3 months early and still was not able to sit with my travelling companion. I do not wish to pay extra for preferred seating, but think it's unreasonable not to be able to choose seats at the time of booking or during online check-in the day before. The gate representative informed us that there were lots of seats available and would reassign us neighboring seats, but did not do it after all. Very disappointing. Also, I asked for an aisle seat due to having claustrophobia and he did not accommodate that request either."
Pros: "Customer service that includes reservations Mexico, Cancun gate agents, wheel chair persons MN, flight crew and ground agents, wheel chair person. We had to change our flight because wife became ill in Mexico. Sun Country made a difficult trip easy. We are so very grateful to all the employees we came in contact with. Sun Country is amazing. in our book. I looked around wondering if they were only treating us so well. No, they treated everyone well in Mexico. Thank You Sun Country"
Cons: "It was excellent trip regarding service."
Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"
Cons: "American Airlines is on top there game"
Cons: "Did not allow use of exit rows to improve social distancing (those seats “not in my class of service“). Flight was crowded."
Pros: "Same as previous flight"
Cons: "Same as previous flight."
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Punctuality, professionalism, and overall excellent customer service. Every personal i spoke with was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "There are too many good flight times with extensive layovers not enough non stop flights at reasonable times"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Cons: "Absolutely full flight with no physical distancing."
Pros: "The crew was fine, friendly enough, although I was incredibly disappointed that they didn't force people to wear their masks as they boarded. They also didn't enforce masks over noses--rendering masks useless."
Cons: "The flight was completely full. And people weren't wearing masks as they boarded, and the flight attendants did nothing about that. Also, there was no distancing IN the airport during boarding. It's NOT DIFFICULT to put tape marks on the ground to ensure physical distancing. It is THEIR responsibility to make sure the process is safe, since half of the people seem to not care about distancing (or mask wearing). I'm incredibly disappointed and I will be flying Southwest for the time being: I hear they're better at enforcing distancing."
Cons: "Plane had to land in a different city due to inclement weather. Very disorganized process, huge traveling setback, never got my travel voucher."
Cons: "We were packed in during coronavirus. I am never flying American again. Profits over health"
Cons: "Made it a smaller flight. It was a lot of people on the plane! We could not practice social distancing"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."
Pros: "Seat 5A was great"
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Busy but kind stewardesses"
Cons: "Please offer another snack option besides carboard flavored pretzels."
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Pros: "This is such a quick flight, and the staff made it quite easy."
Cons: "My in Flight Wi-Fi did not work. Not a huge deal, because it's such a quick flight, but it is a little Annoying, and may have just been a bad day for the system."
Pros: "The lady at the counter before we boarded switched our seats for us so our tickets could be together."
Cons: "The seats we had were exit seats right next to the bathroom and it was a night time flight. So 8 hours overnight of constant commotion and people walking by. The flight attendants were blatantly rude and would sit right in front of us and openly talk badly about the passengers. One of the flight attendants walked by and literally just grabbed my drink out of my hand and took it. There was only one flight attendant who was actually pleasant and polite to everyone and her name was Kate. The other flight attendants were just rude and abrasive to everyone and basically would mock people who did not speak English as their primary language. We were both treated okay but I was truly appalled with the way they spoke to some of the other passengers."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "short flight, crew was nice"
Cons: "left 40 min late due to a communication error deciding what crew would work the plane. didn’t find out why the flight was delayed until airborne."
Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "I got here."
Cons: "Everything else. American cancelled my first flight from MSP to ORD. And when I got to Chicago, it cancelled my next flight to Nashville. The flight I managed to get on departed two hours late. There was no explanation for each of these cancellations/delays. There was virtually zero inclement weather anywhere, save for most of the country’s temperature being nearly equivalent to the surface of Neptune. And, the surly, clueless Chicago-based gate agent was the coupe de grace in my search for a reasonable explanation after which I waited impatiently for this episode to conclude. American get your act together."
Cons: "American completely missed the mark. AA did not successfully change our reservation when the initial leg of our trip was delayed by an hour due to a fuel issue, which caused us to miss your connection in Chicago. Since American partners with Alaskan Airlines, American should have changed my reservations with regards to Alaska Airlines, but they failed to do that. I stood at the Alaskan Airlines counter as the plane left the gate with our empty seats because there was not a ticket. American Airlines did not change a reservation successfully and so although we had boarding passes with our names and seats and the flight number, the plane left without us. I was stranded and Seattle airport at midnight with a child and an infant with one diaper and one bottle left and it was a terrible experience with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying American they cannot get it together when problems happen with delays."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I bought the tickets together, but was informed at the ticket counter that i had only purchased tickets—not boarding passes. Boarding passes needed to be purchased by paying extra if my husband and I wanted to sit next to each other. I tried calling the customer service line through kayak and waited on hold for a long time with no indication of wait time. When the gate agent arrived, we asked and were moved to seats next to each other right away. The ticket agent at initial check in was very abrasive and non-solution oriented. if what she was saying was true— that we only paid for tickets and had to pay extra for boarding passes together— that was never made clear during the booking process. It’s unlikely I’ll use kayak again unless I know for sure what I’m buying."
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and provided good service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Boarding process could be improved. Seems some people board out of sequence and it screws up the process of stowing luggage and getting to your assigned seat. These same people bring in large over sized bags that will not fit in the above compartment or underneath the seat. Charging these individuals for these violations would deter them from engaging in this behavior. You might also want to add to your instructions how to disembark the plane, some individuals think their schedule is more important and rush up the isle in front of others who are trying to get their carry on luggage from the overhead compartment. Losers!!"
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Pros: "*finally* getting rebooked"
Cons: "The aircraft was downgraded, so there were 12 "overbooked" seats. The flight was delayed several times, with each new delay only being acknowledged after the previous departure time had already passed. Eventually, the flight was "delayed" to 3:15, but then it was bumped BACK to 2:45, so one woman ended up missing the flight because she had gone to the lounge based on the 3:15 departure. I accepted a voucher, but as the original flight kept getting delayed and I couldn't receive the voucher until the doors closed, I almost missed the flight I was rebooked on. If airlines would just communicate better (e.g., tell us there's a delay *before the departure time has passed*), people would be much more willing to deal with the hassle."
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Cons: "it was an hour late"
Cons: "In January, we booked a 5:40pm fight through Kayak to Barcelona. July 7th, the day before our flight kayak sent us an email with a different time. Apparently, this flight had been dropped and completely changed to 5 hours later on February 2nd. Kayak didn't care to tell us until the day before. We ended up having to book a new connecting flight which cost us $250. Ive always booked with kayak and now I fear I will never again. I would like a refund for the $250 or a flight stipend. My name is sarah chambers"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "I booked with British Airways and later noticed the plane was operated for American Airlines. The seats were cramped and the online entertainment was terrible. On an overseas flight, I expect in 2017 that there will be on-screen entertainment on the back of the seat in front of me. Instead, the movie was projected on a screen in the middle seats on an overhead that was about 10 rows away. Plus, you didn't get to pick your movie. You were stuck with the selections provided by the airline. I would have brought along my DVD player or laptop had I know this was going to happen. American flight crews are not as friendly and accommodating as European flight crews, which is why I try not to select an American carrier. Seats are less comfortable on American carriers also."
Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Pros: "Good Entertainment. One flight attendant was great."
Cons: "American Airlines Seats were too close together. The plane was way way too hot. Asked the flight attendants and spoke to the captain after the flight as the front coach section of the aircraft was at least 10 degrees hotter than the rear. We were all taking layer of off cloths as it was so hot. Seems the first class attendants were not monitoring the temps which regulars the temps just behind first class. Told the flight attendant who also acknowledged it but the first class attendants did not make the change Many were angry. We were on the Tarmac for almost 1.5 hours waiting for the plane to be de-iced. No AC during the process."
Pros: "Fast flight"
"I like the fact y’all get me to my destination on time."
"Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and friendly at all times, very professional and approachable."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable."
Cons: "Communication is always my #1 complaint with Allegiant. They delay flights regularly but there’s never any additional information...they just send you a text or email saying your flight is delayed, never tell you why, but they want you at the gate at the regular time...so you sit there for hours with No further communication and the gate agents never come to the gate to let you know what’s going on or what to expect because corporate has gotten stingy with regard to compensating folks even when THEY are to blame for the delay. Two trips in a row, two weeks apart, they’ve done the same thing to us. I appreciate the low fares, but I’ve just about decided I’d rather pay more for good customer service because theirs just sucks."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Reclining seats would be great!!"
Cons: "A plan to deal with a hostile mom with a screaming kid that was out of control."
Cons: "The landing. the approach was so rough. I've flown 6 times this year. And that was the roughest approach ever"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Not much after sitting in the airport for two extra hours on both flights"
Cons: "They could have boarded flights on time or at least explained why the flight had been delayed."
Pros: "This flight itself met all expectations and I am very pleased with Allegiant."
Cons: "Communication & Technology @ check-in. I was never able to check in using the Allegiant phone app. Reason never communicated. Unable to check in online. Finally after a long hold over the phone I reached an agent who explained the system was updating. Bad set up. Could have been communicated!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, and the aisles are spacious"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary."
Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed departure with no explanation. Other passengers clogged up the overhead bins with small bags, purses and containers of to-go food. Causing me to place my carry on in an overhead bin multiple aisles behind my seat which made for a cluster trying to board and de board."
Cons: "Flight itself was great. Seats are very narrow"
Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."
Cons: "Bad turbulence throughout the entire flight. Hot temperature during majority of flight."
Pros: "Very efficient. You cannot beat the price. All I expected is to get there."
Cons: "The plane was very clean and looked new, the seats were comfortable but did not recline. I missed that."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and helpful and boarded us in an orderly manner."
Cons: "Staff are part time employees and do not arrive to check in counter until 1.5 hours before flight. When flying out of this airport you do not need to arrive 2 hours early."
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Seats were way to small for tall people with long legs..........."
Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"
Pros: "They gave us a soda in the waiting area, because we were so delayed. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 2.5 hours, with no explanation or information given. Loading was extremely slow, hot, and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Like the newer plane. The crew was nice."
Cons: "I purchased 2 bulk head seats for more leg room and because they changed the plane, my seats were no longer in the bulk head. We didn't have extra leg room and I would like a refund for the price I paid to upgrade my seats. It is impossible to get service on the phone, since even the customer service number the flight attentendant gave me, still put me on an unbearable hold time. Please refund my money for the seats that you did not provide me with."
Pros: "Quick non stop."
Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"
Pros: "Great price on airfare"
Cons: "Long line for baggage check in"
Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."
Cons: "Reviewed 9 hours because a crew member didn’t show. Was originally told 6 hours delay only 20 minutes before the flight was due to leave. Received two $8 meal vouchers and rude and slow service from the entire ground crew."
Pros: "Quick boarding with no fuss."
Cons: "The planes could be a lot cleaner."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours then canceled"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "While I enjoy the fact that Allegiant offers direct flights to Laredo at an affordable price, the planes really need to be updated."
Cons: "We really disliked that we boarded the plane and just before taking off they made us get off again and never did confirm the real reason. The planes really need better maintenance since this is the second time in two weeks we have to change planes due to problems."
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "The food vouchers for 5 hour wait and water/beverages available. Liked alligent app for boarding pass available without printing."
Cons: "The 5 hour wait while the plane was worked on was unexpected. Not a lot of extra space for a near 6 hour flight. Seats do NOT recline at all. The other plane they boarded us on smelled like dirty shoes or diaper."
Pros: "Flight cost."
Cons: "Xtra charge for everything."
Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"
Pros: "The crew and pilot"
Cons: "Literally had to pay for every little thing that is usually included in other airline tickets."
Pros: "Fast flight. Good climate control"
Cons: "Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The plane was freezing the entire flight. Apparently, the crew tried to get the pilot to turn down the air, but it never happened. I hate how Allegiant nickel and dimes you. Not even a cup of water is free."
Pros: "I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Having to pay for drinks. But, I didn't even not mind it that much. I'd much rather a cheaper flight"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."
Pros: "STS ground crew waived goodbye. Love a small town airport"
Pros: "It's a budget airline so don'texpect thrills, but it got me to my destination."
Cons: "The boarding agent didn't understand priority comes before group 3."
Pros: "friendly crew clean plane, speedy service"
Pros: "Excellent flight! Down side no wi fi connection and no Internet, you must buy all food and drink but hey for cost of the trip worth it!"
Cons: "No internet or wifi"
Pros: "EXECELLENT BOOKING & FLIGHT, WILL CONTINUE USING YOUR SERVIES. JOHN"
Pros: "The crew was very kind. Plane loaded very quickly, every flight we've had on allegiant has left on time! Overall - very good experience!"
Cons: "Seats are TOO small!"
Pros: "It was cheap and was no different than other flights I have taken."
Cons: "Their station at the airport didn't open until about an hour before my flight."
Pros: "We had missed our original flight and were met with new boarding passes for a new flight, so that was good. When my friend and I realized we were on different flights, the woman at the ticket counter was very kind and helpful in changing my flight. We didn’t get our bags, but the women at baggage claim were very kind and helpful, and hopefully my bag will be delivered soon."
Cons: "All planes are too cramped - not much legroom, even for me, and I’m 5’1 Not bad for this flight - only an hour - but really uncomfortable for a nine hour flight"
Cons: "Flight left 2.5 hrs late. Had to wait on tarmac 45 minutes then had to change planes and run to other end of Chicago airport. My friend was in a wheelchair so extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "Transfer from international (T5) to T1 at O'Hare is very unpleasant..Generally O'Hare is a terrible airport."
Pros: "I thought it was awesome to see the crew assist with holding babies so parents could get a little respite on the flight."
Cons: "Out plane showed up late due to weather - understandable. We didn't have anyone to pilot the plane for over 5 hours - unacceptable. I was due to be home by 8PM CT on Sunday; didn't get home until 4AM Monday. Very poor job by United."
Cons: "Kayak sent me a message that our connecting flight out of O'Hare was boarding at gate B5. However, checking the monitors in the terminal showed the correct gate was B21, which is on the opposite end of the terminal. I don't know why Kayak had the wrong information on this. We barely made our connecting flight because our starting flight was over 30 minutes late, which was United's fault. This made rushing to the correct gate for our connecting flight all the more stressful. No time to stop at the bathrooms or pick up something to eat. Both United and Kayak let me down on getting back to Hartford. We arrived at the end of boarding with no room left for our bags in the overheads so we had to check them and pick them up at the carousel. A totally BAD flight experience."
Cons: "Delayed from another flight but this crew tried their best to get us up in the air"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Respect and support"
Cons: "Lost my bags..."
Pros: "I appreciated that the airline put us up in a hotel, gave us vouchers for food and bumped us to first class, however not all of us even got on this plane. My wife is on standby while my daughter and her friend go with me at 6:20 AM, my work de is scheduled for 7:45 flight. We’ll see but I’m not holding my breath."
Cons: "See above..."
Cons: "It was delayed due to my earlier trip but united tried to get me a connection which was atleaogood. The overall trip was 24 hours and due to all these delays my trip took 31 hours."
Cons: "There’s a guy cree that is rude."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a half hour. No one announced anything about the delay until we were almost leaving. It would have been nice to at least share what was happening and when we could expect to leave. Delays are always frustrating but especially so late at night and when no information is given."
Pros: "Our family was able to sit together"
Cons: "The flight left late It arrived late and we sat out away from the gate for 15-20 minutes before getting up to the gate to deplane."
Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."
Cons: "The flight was late, which I realize isn't any one person's fault, but it was annoying. We were actually taxiing almost as long as we were in the air! The part that was really frustrating was that my infant's car seat was damaged, but United refused to acknowledge that they did it because it hadn't been something severe like being run over by a forklift. The good news is that I now know to avoid flying United."
Pros: "Temp was comfortable, not freezing cold like on other flights I experienced"
Cons: "The delay!!"
Cons: "The next time I'm going to drive to Chicago to save $500.00 or more on my trip to South America or use a different airline."
Pros: "United had gotten the idea that they should charge more for their flights. They've done it by inventing a new "basic economy" class which costs just what it used to cost to fly economy, only you don't get to pick your seats, don't get to bring a carry on, and can't check in for your flight without one of their staff verifying your personal item isn't secretly a carry-on."
Cons: "Being treated like a third class citizen because I'm poor."
Cons: "Need more free snacks"
Pros: "Everything went well, landed early, crew were helpful. Could ask for better."
Cons: "Nothing to say here."
Cons: "You cannot check in online so you have to wait in line for an agent to check you in. The fare only allows you a middle seat. There is really not much good about this low fare. I'd rather take a low cost airline then get treated like you get treated on the basic economy fare."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and no one got beat up."
Cons: "In-app entertainment is better than nothing. But free wifi would have been great. And the seats are horrible and hurt my neck and back."
Pros: "The plane did not crash. That was the part I liked."
Cons: "No one cares what coach customers think of "their in-flight experience" so im not sure why I'm bothering. I got a cheap ticket and packed a tiny backpack. Was reminded of my lowly state by being made to wait till the last second to board. Last row of plane. 2 inches of leg room. Leave it to United to figure out a way to create a class of customer so low that you envy all the other cattle. MOOOOO!"
Pros: "2 flights today. Both delayed. Both with no free entertainment or any attempt to make up for the horrible problems. Service was non existent on the first and limited on the second."
Cons: "There is very little to like about united. Instead of taking the opportunity to offer some free comps to the passengers on either flight for the delays they just brushed it off as business as usual. Poor choice when a little hospitality goes a long way."
Pros: "Their waffle cookie is the best 'freebie' in the air. I also liked the access to the wifi for entertainment on my own device."
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "I haven't gotten on the flight. It's been delayed 3 times."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Will never fly united again."
Pros: "Ok flight short crew nice"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I had long waiting time for my flight from ORD and asked at stall if i can get early flight and the person at desk checked the system and get me early flight with no charge in cooperative and helpful manner with smiley gesture ."
Pros: "Crew was really friendly, and the boarding was quick."
Cons: "There was no snacks or anything to eat during the flight ."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I was so happy to find a cheap one way flight at the last minute. Was able to get my son home for the weekend. Otherwise he would hace had to stay in Chicago for the night. Super easy and efficient."
Pros: "The crew was very considerate and nice to all passengers."
Cons: "It took forever to board and people had to move because the plane was unbalanced. That shouldn't happen in 2016."
Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 40 minutes because of "paperwork" according to the pilot. We boarded the plane on time however had to sit on it during the delay. We were not informed of what was going on until we had already been waiting for 30 minutes. When they informed us of the delay they offered everyone free direct TV in flight to make up for the delay. Once we finally took off they announced that the direct TV was not actually working. The flight attendant making the announcements was not sincere and rather unprofessional. Luckily the pilot flew fast so we ended up arriving only 10 minutes late."
Pros: "Good legroom. I was at an exit row. Crew was cheerful. Plane seemed pretty new and clean."
Cons: "Delayed departure. And had to sit on tarmac on arrival in Minneapolis waiting for other plane to leave our gate."
Pros: "Was given a couple of blankets that I asked for. Everyone was very professional. Very accommodating."
Pros: "This flight was very relaxing as it could be. I do not like to fly but the crew made it very easy to relax and get comfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the in cabin experience went smoothly."
Cons: "It took over half an hour, for the plane to depart from the runway. In addition, the gate was changed three times without overhead announcements from O'Hare."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
