Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"

Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "It was Ok. Some short delay but over all not too bad. Just didn't like the fact I always get seats next to the toilet"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a ticket thinking i bought it through kayak but I actually bought a ticket through a third party in India. Where no one spoke good English. I called the agency to find out if I needed a Visa for my visit to Australia and the told me no. So when I showed up to the airport I didn’t have the right documents and I MISSED MY FLIGHT. Also the wouldn’t just change my flight and charge me the change flight fee. They cancelled my flight entirely and made me buy a whole new ticket!!! Worst flight experience I’ve ever had and this is not my first time flying to Australia or out of country."
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Check in Denver super helpful Gate staff hustled to turn around flight Flight crew excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed, almost missed international connections"
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."
Cons: "Snacks are the bare minimum and the restrooms could have been attended to more often, paper was piling up in the trash."
Cons: "One flight attendant was a little rude to the passenger on my row who was hard of hearing."
Pros: "The seats are not comfortable at all. The tickets that we bought promised a USB port and there were none. And oddly enough, everything around me was very sticky. The seat, the seat in front of me, the window.. it was an overall uncomfortable flight"
Cons: "At least one USB port per seat would’ve been nice. The WiFi was so slow that I couldn’t even send an email. And maybe the seats could’ve been wiped down a bit."
Cons: "Didn’t enjoy the flight at all. Seats were uncomfortable, staff looked somewhat unkept and were gossiping loudly in the back during the flight. Snacks were not provided, only one drink for the entire flight. I will not be using Sun Country again."
Cons: "Cramped seating, limited overhead bin space, mediocre experience. Next time I’ll spend the extra money and fly Delta."
Pros: "On-line entertainment was ok. It would have been better if they could notify you more clearly in advance about how to download the information you need and to let you know that earphones are not provided."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. Flight attendants were not particularly service oriented. For example, when I asked for a glass of water the flight attendant sighed and then got it. So, the result was fine but the manner was not friendly."
Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "Check in crew were robotic, lacked enthusiasm. Is management competent? Are they leading, or directing? There is a difference, and one is more effective than the other. If morale is low, if employee satisfaction is low on what is visible to the passengers; then I wonder about what passengers don't see: maintenance crews, safety, quality assurance. I heard lots of grumblings from other passengers about bag policy. Provide first class service to your employees, and they will provide first-class service to your customers."
Pros: "Fare good but hated having to pay extra for seat"
Cons: "Food and entertainment were non-existent. They used to give away and then sell cheeseburgers that were fabulous, but no longer. T flight was 12:20-3:00 so should have had food option. Also they should board window seats first. I had to disrupt a couple with a baby."
Pros: "I was forced to buy a ticket in order to get my rental car. I wasn’t sure when I was going to be returning to Minneapolis. So I guess I’m not upset with my overall experience with Suncountry I’m upset with the overall experience of the travel industry lately"
Cons: "Policies"
Cons: "Very cramped. The guy in front of me reclined his seat and I could barely move."
Pros: "The crew on the ground and sky were amazing. Everyone i talked to was kind and understanding while dealing with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Ultimately, sun country could of communicated better all around. Was not informed that the flight was delayed until I checked into airport/ even though we were told that the airline knew that the plane was late “all day.” Arrived for a 3:50 flight and did not take off till after 9. Furthermore, there was limited communication regarding when we would actually take off. Checking-in I was informed boarding would start at “6:40” and then we did not board until 830-9."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Being given new seats even though we had to pay extra to get them in the first place. Being charged for luggage when the website wasn’t clear about this matter."
Pros: "Denver airport boarding crew was really Good. Flight attendants not so much. I’m sure they were as tired as the clients after the 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Better communication and resolve Maintenance issues or change the aircraft sooner. Which is what finally happened. Delay started in L.A."
Cons: "I researched and called and found a 45L backpack so I could carry on my dive bag. That’s the reason I’m going all the way to Fiji. Not letting me get it in LA I’d also ridiculous."
Cons: "90 mins late leaving LA caused us to miss connection from Brisbane to Darwin now delayed additional 12 hrs. LA Qantas rep lied and said every 2 hrs there were flights from Brisbane to Darwin and not to worry. Truth is only one per day."
Pros: "seat"
Cons: "Staff seemed exhausted. American has no customer service phone to explain to customers what is going on. Bad experience all together."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly. Pilots flew great. We arrived a few mins early as well."
Cons: "On the way to Denver from Miami we were on a nice new AA plane with TV entertainment, movies, power, and comfortable seats. On the way from Denver to Miami we were on an old plane with no entertainment and old uncomfortable seats. If this is going to be the case, charge me less up front as well. My daughter had a terrible time for a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "Even though I presented a valid handicap sticker to the front desk, they treated me as though I was some kid who stole it from my grandma or something when I asked to board early. The steward was rude and pushy. I asked a question and he acted as though I was bothering him."
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Cons: "Many other travelers were not wearing their masks and the flight was completely packed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than 45 min as 2 passengers noticed that the plane was not cleaned properly prior to boarding (apparently there was a large mess around their seats). As a result, the cleaning crew had to board the plane and remedy the situation. In addition, the crew was rude."
Cons: "Smiles on statements. Plane was freezing cold. Lite didn’t work."
Pros: "The jet was nice. I was in Economy Plus. So, I had a little more room. There were no TV’s in the back of the seats in front of me. You have to have an tablet, and connect it to their wifi to watch a movie. (You don’t have to go through paying for internet. Just Connect to the wireless access point and then go to www.unitedwifi.com. From there you can click on Entertainment to watch movies for free. Or, you can see flight details like ETA, altitude, and speed from clicking on the top-right of the page.)"
Cons: "I didn’t like that the flight attendant didn’t even ask me if I wanted to buy a snack pack. I was starving, and had read the menu in their magazine in preparation to order food. She came by and asked me if I wanted something to drink. I said Coke please. She gave me a tiny cup of Coke which contained a little more than a swig of Coke, and then handed me a tiny pack of pretzels before turning away to serve the next guest. This was a 2hr flight. So, no big deal really. I wasn’t going to starve to death. But, I never got to eat. By the time the food service cleared and they were making their rounds to gather trash before landing, it was really too late to address the issue with them. So, I just sucked it up and spent my $9.99 elsewhere."
Pros: "Although there were a lot of passengers on this flight, the crew was able to get everyone on the plane in an efficient manner."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2 and a half hours because of the weather in Denver. I was not comfortable at all in my seat because the passenger beside me had his knee and elbow all in my personal space. I asked an attendant if it was okay for me to move and she stated that it was okay, but United switched a lot of passengers flights around so there wouldn't be any empty seats. I was stuck beside the man, all hanging out of my seat, because there wasn't an open seat available. Thank goodness the flight was only 2 hours long. Overall my experience with United was terrible and I will not be flying with them anymore."
Pros: "Great crew and process"
Cons: "For the fare, the leg room is not enough for average 6'0 person to be comfortable for longer than an hour."
Pros: "Your mobile website only asked for first and last name, not middle. Yan was denied boarding from LAX to CAN after she was allowed to fly from DEN to LAX without the middle namename on the ticket. We have had so many problems are are trying to get Air China to refund part of the ticket but they hang up on us frequently. They are almost as bad as Kayak who screwed us over with not having a middle name spot for proceline ticket purchase. I will also be calling you to tell you."
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Why do the exit rows get filled with pilots and flight attendants. If you are looking at a brand experience for your paying customers, we should be bumped up to at least better leg room in the exit row while your crew takes the cramped seats we were sitting in. Just a thought"
Pros: "Everything is just horrible I could go in to detail but what would be the point"
Cons: "Being treated horribly"
Pros: "Comfort was perfect. Checkin was easy and staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Engine problems before take-off."
Pros: "Nice crew, plenty of leg room, quick on boarding and off boarding"
Pros: "Simple and straightforward. Non-invasive crew. On time."
Cons: "Tough to check in online and at the kiosk. Couldn't get anyone on the phone - supposedly due to "weather"."
Pros: "It's somewhat cheap"
Cons: "That they are NEVER ON TIME FLIGHT GOT DELAYED 2 times"
Pros: "You get what you pay for. Departed on time and arrived early"
Cons: "The beverages (soda) were overpriced."
Cons: "I haven't even left to Los Angeles yet. The flight has been delayed twice. I don't appreciate being sent an email asking how my flight was when I haven't even departed. This is ridiculous."
Pros: "I just liked the fact that their airplanes were pretty clean."
Cons: "The flight prices are very misleading though. You have to pay $50 each way for luggage! That's is very stupid as you tend to find this out upon online check-in or at the terminal. They will try to sell you anything and everything!"
Cons: "Little to no communication from staff. Hidden charges on baggage. Different instructions/information from different staff. Delays, no apologies."
Cons: "1.Seated next to a very large man that should have bought 2 seats. I was only able to occupy 3/4 of my space. It was a very uncomfortable flight with having part of a strangers body touching and crowding me. There were no other seats available to move to. 2. When I asked for a glass of water, they do not give you, but you have to pay. 3. ALL other airlines allow a purse and a small carry-on. They charge $55.00 dollars. 4. They charge double for check in bag. $50.00, most others charge $25.00 I will not fly with Spirit again and heard other complaints from other passengers. This will be a short-lived airline."
Cons: "My round trip ticket was $150. Great deal except for the added $100 for my check in luggage! Which would have $110 if I would have carried on a bag! Ridiculous! For that price I could have taken another person with me! Next time I should just wear all my clothes I would normally pack and check nothing in! LOL!"
Pros: "THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME FLYING AND THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE FROM CHECKING IN, GOING THROUGH SECURITY AND THE STAFF FROM SPIRIT MADE MY TRIP VERY NICE"
