Pros: "Friendly staff. Snack service."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."

Cons: "Delayed. Flue season folks. If your sick just don’t travel!"
Pros: "Great crew as usually"

Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "Flight had a mechanical issue. They kept us informed, provided vouchers for food, and a discount on a future flight. We also were offered a free drink once the flight finally did take off. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour delay, however, we deplaned after about 50 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"
Pros: "It was great we had a nice Tailwind that got us in 50 min early . Space in seating was more than adequit."
Cons: "Their wasn't anything I disliked."
Pros: "Staff was awesome"
Pros: "Had no food or entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent Crew - I flew standby, so have great gate agents and flight attendants makes all the difference when you’re hoping for a seat. In flight they are professional and personable and keep you up to date on what you need to know! Plus, I’m always happy when my flights have USB ports so I’m fully charged when I deplane."
Cons: "I always want more leg room or a little more room under the seat in front of me. But I didn’t upgrade for a roomier seat and there was more than enough overhead space, so truly can’t complain about it!"
Pros: "Good customer service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Sat for an hour before take off."
Pros: "Everyone on my flight were just great"
Cons: "Service"
Pros: "Alaska never disappoints us. We lucked out with a 1/2 full flight from Chicago, so had lots of room. Each of us got a window. Friendly crew and desk staff. Timely return of checked luggage. All good."
Pros: "Everything was awesone...the airline crew were helpful and approachable."
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is top notch on my pole! Always been Awesome and I have flown with them for the last 20 years!"
Pros: "Professional flight attendants"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The flight attendants went above and beyond!"
Pros: "I was in first class so that's the better experience. I would have been even unhappier in coach."
Cons: "Seat, despite being first class, was not comfortable I asked for a blanket before takeoff and was told there aren't any on board. No blankets for an 8 hr red eye??? No pillow either. Flight attendants never asked if I wanted another beverage after initial service. It was an 8 hr flight. The first class meal was a tiny cheese plate. I was starving. For a $900 1 way ticket, I expect more of this airline Flight attendants seemed like they didn't want to be there. Wasn't feeling the love. it was a 12:30am flight. We are all tired, but c'mon. Smile a little."
Pros: "the seats were much more comfortable and the fans worked. I had a way better flight."
Pros: "After a long delay the captain did his best to get us to Anchorage as quickly as possible. That was appreciated."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours due to the fact that the scheduled captain could not fly anymore due to hours. We had to wait to get another pilot. This caused some problems for some who had schedules to meet, and rides to be notified. The airline needs to see this possibility sooner so long waits are avoided as much as possible. The 737 was not as comfortable as the regional jet on our first leg of this trip."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The airline also offers a little more leg room than other airlines"
Cons: "Small crowded terminal at O'Hare made boarding seem chaotic"
Pros: "The service was great, everyone was very friendly!"
Cons: "The change from virgin airlines to Alaska was a bit confusing. I was told conflicting things and was not told that I would have to pic up my checked bag to re-check it. There needs to be more clear instructions on what someone needs to do if they are flying with both airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and efficient. The seats were comfortable, but my wive got squeezed by a large person next to her. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! I was on my way to my bachelorette party in Portland and they were so sweet, congratulating me and even giving my friends and I free drinks! I would definitely fly them again! LOVED IT! :)"
Pros: "• Quick to board plane and take off • Flight arrived sooner than expected • built in plugs so you can charge your computer or phone."
Cons: "They have a 20 minute policy for baggage claim. At the 19 minute mark they sent up about 20 bags and stoped. It took them another 30 minutes to start sending more bags. One of the airline attendants spelt a fruit package on the floor in front of me. The juice from the package got all over my bag below the seat in front of me, getting important military paperwork damaged and she didn't even apologize."
Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."
Cons: "Boarded early because of disability, crew unable to assist in placing carry-on in overhead bin (bad back, medical reason or other excuses). Intermittent "rough flight" Lavatory - not flushed when entered, reported to crew. Problem ?"
Cons: "We were asked to exit the plane at Tarmac and I was traveling with 2 little children. There were a lot of stairs to get off the plane and then walk back to terminal and then a lot of stairs were there to get back to terminal. I was hurting in my knee and my kids ears were hurting badly because the pressure was not controlled while landing. It was a very bad experience and I will definitely think twice about flying Alaska again."
Pros: "Mostly smooth flight and good service."
Cons: "Didn't use provided entertainment service."
Pros: "Captain's flight commentary good Crew fine. Plane fine."
Cons: "slow, untimely, disorganized boarding Couldn't get seat assignment online or at airport."
Cons: "My wife cleaned the seat headrest with a disinfectant wipe and it was very dirty."
Pros: "Was seated by a very nice couple."
Cons: "The plane was crowded. I was very upset to find that on a 6 hour flight I not only had to pay for entertainment I didn't even get to finish watching what I paid for. Was really pissed that on a 6 hour flight I had to starve because you also charge for food! Didn't have a credit card only cash that was refused so I was unable to eat."
Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"
Pros: "Great service and extremely friendly staff. Brand new plane. More economy legroom then other carriers"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Everything else was perfect."
Cons: "These seats are $50 extra, and yet the entire row doesn't recline. I feel like this should be clearly stated before allowing people to upgrade to "premier" seating. Our flight was a red eye and it was the worst sleep I've ever tried to have."
Cons: "Who ever made my reservation did not put in seat numbers is now my wife and I are not sitting together. Also Alaska airline charges for everything. So they suck."
Pros: "The crew was great. Only problem was we were in the back row and by the restrooms. The people who were going to the restroom didn't bother me. But there was one woman who just stood back there for over 30min. That was really annoying and should not be allowed. Made me really claustrophobic."
Cons: "That the woman was allowed to stand there was never asked to sit down. She had her hand on my seat and her elbow at one point. For what I had to pay I shouldn't have had to have this person in my space."
Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"
Pros: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."
Cons: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Pros: "Crew is amazing, seats are pretty good."
Cons: "On time, baggages checked in and were made available on time."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Pros: "Use my built up miles for the SEA-ANC leg of our trip, as to physically price it out as one ticket usually increases the fare by 300-600 u$d depending upon time of year. As it was the tail end of an already long journey (OKA-ICN/ICN-SEA), booked the First Class Cabin. Every mile was worth it."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "Good snack selection. Crew was personable."
Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Well, if our plane had been leaving on time it would've been superb."
Pros: "The entertainment was nice."
Cons: "If the screen wasn’t behind the seat. I could hear the tapping of the person behind me."
Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "Jeff was our flight attendant in first class. He is an excellent flight attendant. He has an amazing attitude and his manner made us feel as if we had been friends with him for years."
Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
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"
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"
Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."
Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"
Pros: "We had a 2 1/2 delay due to mechanical issues but the crews, flight and ground, did a great job. Thanks."
Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"
Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"
Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Cons: "Layover"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Pros: "I LOVED the free movies. Great idea and newer movies. Finally was able to watch a movie I'd wanted to see for a long time."
Cons: "Flight was packed which always makes for a more cramped ride. Again, boarding. Flight boarded late and just seems boarding from the back to front would be faster."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "The staff and crew were great help all along the route and the planes were well kept and clean."
Cons: "One of the legs did not have the free wifi available, but they mentioned that before takeoff and were very apologetic that it had not been added to that plane yet."
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Cons: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and engaging throughout the flight. Gate agents as well. Plane and terminal remain very clean as they always should have been."
Cons: "Seats are incredibly uncomfortable as always. Tailbone was again painful for 2-3 days like every Sun Country flight. Head rests are like plywood and do not a allow restful position. The landing was quite hard. Many surprised screeches on this one."
Pros: "The seat pocket had enough room to fit my book and water bottle."
Cons: "Make it clear right up front that you charge for checked bags and overhead carry on bags - my flight is now $70 more expensive than I thought; don't charge for overhead carry on bags as well as for checked bags; at least provide a bag of free pretzels or something with the free beverage, fly on time, when you don't fly on time, update the monitors in the arrival airport as soon as possible - not just after the original arrival time (by then it's too late for the people picking me up!)."
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."
Cons: "Nothing."
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"
Cons: "We were almost 2 hour delay inside the hot plan..."
Cons: "Quality for everything."
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."
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat was hard and the tall woman behind me kept jabbing her knees into my seat. Very unpleasant"
Pros: "Much better than Spirit. Things were cramped but not unbearable and I was on a 5.75 hour flight. Plane was new and clean. I liked that the armrests were thin."
Cons: "Ok. So you aren’t allowed to check in before you get to the airport unless you pick your seat - which costs money. Very sneaky. But then I wanted to pay for a bag without checking in. Let. Me. Just. Say. - this was possibly more difficult than hacking into the pentagon. Lort."
Pros: "Even though we departed a little late, we arrived close to on time."
Pros: "I got from point A to B on a non-stop flight. Desk staff and flight attendants were polite and accommodating."
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. Also, you would think on a 5.5 hr flight that occurs over/near dinner time there would be more food options than just snack packs. Even that was mediocre."
Pros: "I loved how, once the aircraft was there they updated us and got everyone organized during the boarding process and we left in a reasonable amount of time after the aircraft arrived. I didn't have any problems with the flight, and it was nice to be notified in advanced about the upcoming turbulence."
Cons: "It was late, and with my long layover, I couldn't check-in without exiting the secure area. They are understaffed, and they don't have anyone in the secured area to even ask questions too, let along check in passengers that are transferring from other airlines. Also, there wasn't anything showing the passengers that the flight was delayed until 10 minutes before the flight was supposed to leave. I knew it was late, only after the agent from a different airline did many searches into my connecting flight, and I also asked my check-in agent at Sun Country, I had to ask! That information was not given willingly."
Pros: "Was great?"
Cons: "Was a long line to check in, in Minneapolis. No automated check in."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There are fees for carry on and checked luggage, there is a fee for entertainment, and there are no complementary snacks or meals. My luggage didn't make my connection, even with an hour layover."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed by an hour and two hours. Customer service refused to help me out even though I completely missed my connecting flight and wasn’t able to get home in time to make me sons birthday party."
Pros: "I made it to my destination along with my checked bag."
Cons: "Plane was 45 minutes late taking off. Plane is very crowded and cramped. Gate ataff is either untrained or apothetic"
Pros: "We chose this flight as it was a direct flight from MSP to Anchorage. Takeoff was just slightly behind schedule, maybe 25 minutes or so. We were only 15 minutes behind on arrival. We were given beverages a few times during the flight."
Cons: "Did not like the long lines at the check in counter. They need to hire more people. I don’t like when we board and then are not able to get up into the sky for some time. Then they expect people who have been waiting on the plane to not need to use the restrooms. “The pilot has not turned off the seat-belt sign yet” is true, but also you boarded us late and then couldn’t get up into the air right away. Also, our checked bag didn’t arrive with us. We’re waiting to here if it was lost or not."
Cons: "No charge port no tv"
Pros: "Los of room between seats, much more than many airlines! So much less crowded than MSP-1."
Cons: "Could not check in without choosing a seat assignment. Only ones open for my wife and I were extra charges, unless we didn't suit together."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accomodating!"
Pros: "Same comment as above."
Cons: "Same comment as above"
Pros: "5+ hours Minneapolis to Anchorage was great"
Cons: "Seats a bit small"
Pros: "Again good pilot"
Cons: "Again super cheap but there was slightly mor leg room which seemed the normal amount this time"
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "Long flight ( 5 hrs) not even a complimentary snack offered"
Pros: "Great service, made good timing, no issues"
Cons: "No tablets in back of seat, had to request for use"
Pros: "Upgrade to 1st class"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The headrest were nice, no neck pillow was needed because of how I could adjust it. Checking in was very quick and painless, something I appreciate very much. Drink service was nice, they did come around more then expected. The staff was very nice an accommodating , very friendly when we boarded the plane."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. I brought my husband for his first flight and I had told him how comfortable flying was, but when we boarded the plane he was a little horrified about the seats. He said, "they look like metal skeletons with pleather stretched over them." Yikes, I was a little embarrassed for telling him how comfortable he would be. I usually fly coach and I guess I was surprised not to find better seats and screens for movies attached to the back of the headrest (that sounds terribly spoiled, sorry)."
Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, sat by rest rooms very busy at times"
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Flew first class because it was a 6 hour flight. The flight attendants were not helpful and didn't pickup trash, empty cups etc from anyone in the first class cabin. Never made eye contact to see if anything else was needed. Disappointing service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were exceptional and I loved how the pilots kept us updated throughout the flight."
Cons: "nothing at this time for this flight."
Pros: "Crew on board was so nice... Asked the pilot and let me know when we flew over a certain city I asked about. The crew that checked me in was extremely nice too and allowed me to check one of my two bags for free as a one time courtesy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and they didn't really say why, but they made up some of the time in the air."
Pros: "The was my first time flying with Sun Country, the crew was very professional and they got me to my destination safely! Paying an extra $15 for comfort seating was worth it, because of early brooding andore room."
Cons: "No entertainment and the seats were uncomfortable, so I brought a neck pillow for the return flight."
Cons: "Slow service. Dated plane."
Pros: "The woman who checked me in was kind and gave me a better seat without prompting-which I appreciated. Too bad it didn't make much of a difference in the end, since I was stuck in that seat for an extra hour waiting to take off...."
Cons: "Boarding always takes such a long long time. Why does it take so much longer than any other airline? Ended up leaving over an hour and a half late. Absolutely unacceptable. Sun Country planes are so so cramped. Hardly even enough room to walk up the aisle. Was a truly miserable flight and overall experience. Yuck. Definitely avoiding Sun Country in the future - even if the fare is least expensive, it's not worth it."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Friendly, accommodating."
Cons: "Terrible boarding/gate crew and process."
Pros: "Everything went exactly as it should"
Pros: "A good price for non-stop flight. It flies out of terminal 2 which has easier access than terminal 1 at the MSP airport. The afternoon fly out time worked well with my schedule."
Cons: "The seats could always be a little larger."
Pros: "Treated great and upgraded with no questions asked. Handled system being doing fantastically."
Cons: "No concerns great service"
Cons: "The boarding ramp broke and the person who was running boarding at the plane started shouting and panicking, which was completely inappropriate. Even if something is worthy of panic that does not help your customers. Then it took an hour to fix and I missed my connection."
Cons: "When I checked in for the flight, I was told that I would not be charged the $25 baggage fee because I was given a seat ( and the responsibility) for sitting in the emergency evacuation row. Imagine my surprise when you charged me the fee anyway! Disappointed....."
Pros: "I liked the price of the flight."
Cons: "I didn't care for the boarding process. They boarded the middle , row 15 last, and by the time we got on to put bags away our section was full. We had to store bags all the way in the back. It made getting off the plane a hassle because we then had to wait for everyone to get off before we could grab our bags. Was never offered a drink either."
Pros: "everything good would fly again"
Cons: "we could have gotten chips, pretzels or something lite for a snack"
Pros: "It was smooth. Great takeoff and a good landing."
Cons: "The seats are to hard to sit on."
Pros: "Very caring and friendly crew."
Cons: "Delayed 30 minutes and plane temperature was too warm"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Individual TVs, perhaps"
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was about 1000 years old and I don’t think I’ve sat in a more uncomfortable seat."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the new AA so-fi"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Flight crew was great. The plane was half full, so the attendants allowed us to move."
Cons: "Terrible landing in Charlotte. The plane was rattling and had an annoying whistle."
Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
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: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Pros: "Our plane was late getting to the gate. They kept us informed and turned it around pretty quickly. There were storms between Chicago and Rochester so we were rerouted. As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that. Flying is absolutely no fun anymore so you take what you can get for the positives."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working so I couldn’t communicate my late arrival to family picking me up."
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Pros: "They alerted me to problems with our flight and we switched to an earlier flight. No problems with new flight. Good service."
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "crew was great, plane seemed newer and clean. individual screens worked better than others I've used in flights."
Cons: "newer touch screens were great except viewing angle couldn't be adjusted. standard food was horrible, esp for an international flight; not sure if specialty diets have better meals. kid movies were dubbed into many language options but Chinese was not one for ANY kid films. bathrooms with the same crappy mini sinks that you can't really wash your hands in, esp if someone pukes in it. they should all learn from Japan's ANA airliners with the motion sensor sinks with faucets raised up high enough for you to wash your hands without touching the gross basin."
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Cons: "Missed it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Cons: "The cramped space"
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "The crew was great and getting 2 meals was very nice."
Cons: "My headphone jack kept malfunctioning (loud popping noises in my earbuds) while watching the movie and all the reading lights came on and stayed on the majority of the flight so sleeping was difficult."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Cons: "Delayed Swiss flight 8 tue 12 dec 2017 led to catastrophe"
Pros: "Quick"
Pros: "Comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Inflight WI-FI doesn’t work, it kept on dropping in the middle of the movie or it went back to the beginning. Couldn’t see a movie."
Pros: "Nothing! I will make sure to never use United for any flight from now on."
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Cons: "Average"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Cons: "The pilot's landing was way too fast. I was sure that the plane would come to a stop in Hwy 280 at the end of the Asheville runway. That plane probably needed a major brake job after that landing. We ended up at the absolute very end of the runway!"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Cons: "The United mobile app as well as my emails stated that the gate was B3. Upon arriving at gate B3 and attempting to board, I was alerted that I was at the incorrect gate. The gate was switched to C11. However, my app did not alert me nore did it reflect the gate change. I didn't receive a text or email update. I had to run to the different concourse nearly missing the fling."
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
