Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Overall a great experience"
Pros: "The employees on the plane as well as those in the terminal were very friendly and acted like they liked their jobs! No surprise financial add ins!"
Pros: "Boarding in order of seat numerical order (big numbered rows board first)"
Cons: "Put on an American carrier despite having booked with Alaskan. Told the wrong gate. Then told the incorrect boarding time at the correct gate. Missed flight due to gate keeper. Had to gheck my back on the next flight despite ample room to carry on. EVERYONE that works for American Airlines is incompetent, rude and terrible. I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. Your company should be sold off and every employee fired."
Pros: "Fruit platter. On time. Efficient. Professional Plane was very clean"
Cons: "Seattle airport first security man grumpy. Not helpful. No reflection on Alaska airlines however"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "The crew is consistently on point ! Accomadating , friendly and warm !"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, seat was comfortable. I appreciate that food and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "One particular flight attendant purposely ignored me when I tried to ask for cream and sugar for my coffee which she did not offer when handing out drinks. Then she looked right at me twice as I tried to give her my garbage which she was collecting, but she ignored me again and left me holding my garbage until a different flight attendant came much later and took it without incident. It made me wonder if it was because I looked Asian- she was helpful and polite to the white women next to me. I was polite and was not being difficult in any way. I'm half white, but was often treated like this in Illinois when I was growing up. She should have been professional and if she had I would have rated the trip as excellent."
Pros: "Flight was fine - can't really say much real good or bad - we slept most of the time. Left tablet on board and a crew member retrieved it for me and did so with a smile. Pretty happy with the flight."
Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."
Pros: "Was in time. Leg space was good"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent, the flight was on time and I retrieved my luggage in 10 minutes."

Pros: "I've always had a good experience with Alaska Air."
Pros: "The beer."
Cons: "No blankets."
Pros: "Plenty of overhead bin space; no excessive announcements; ultra clean cabin; flight deck explained the lengthy ORD taxi time to the arrival gate"
Cons: "FA's appeared to be rushed during boarding. I was asked to put up my tray table, and I spilled all of my French fries on the floor as the flight attendant watched. I had to leave the mess all over the floor. My seat neighbor offered to help clean the mess. I cleaned it up on my own with a safety information card as a scoop and dumped the mess into a puke bag. The flight attendant should have offered a trash bag as there was plenty of time before takeoff. I flew for your airline as a flight attendant for almost four years, and I know AS flight attendants are among the best."
Pros: "I liked the choices of food and the movies!"
Cons: "I thought it took too long to get the laptops out. I didn't finish my movie."
Pros: "I appreciated the checking in process with Akemi. She made it seamless! Thank you!"
Cons: "Seating felt a little more cramped than usual."
Cons: "Barely any free snacks, aside from water. Everything either needed to be paid for or was advertised in a way that eventually got annoying and overwhelming. I felt less like I was on an airplane and more at one of those promotion things where you have to sit in an uncomfortable chair for three hours listening to a guy in a suit talk about boats before you can get a free fast pass ticket to a ride at Disneyland."
Pros: "I like a lot the treatment"
Pros: "easy check in. (emergency seat with no extra cost) kind staff. board on time. but not declined seat, new plane with two power outlet."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Wonderful seat and attendants."
Pros: "Having an exit row"
Pros: "Crew always has a smile. Smooth boarding process"

Cons: "No sandwiches for sale just snack boxes"
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Everything was as to be expected"
Pros: "Crew was professional, courteous and kind. No issues on the plane."
Cons: "WiFi did not work for me to watch the on board entertainment, but not a dealbreaker for me."
Pros: "New plane, very comfortable. Crew handled weather delay well."
Cons: "EWR Terminal B3 has the worst TSA capacity I’ve seen in a long time - understaffed, no TSA PreCheck (& no option to go through a different security check point), resulting in very slow lines from inadequately shepherded inexperienced international travelers. I won’t take Sun Country again thru’ EWR"
Pros: "They didn’t let me on I want a refund this made me miss my birthday party in Chicago thanks for ruining 25"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I had to pay for my seat. Then I was suppose to leave at 5:55 PM. Then it was changed to 6:45 departure time. I get to the airport my boarding pass said boarding 7:15. I looked online to see if there were any delays come to find out there was I asked the lady at tge counter she stated that there was bad weather coming this way. Then she made an announcement saying there was a delay due to an international flight that landed in Dallas. They needed to change the crew, clean up and do security check. This was an experience that I have never had to go through. This was inconvenient for not only myself but the people who were picking me up from the airport in Dallas. The seats are way too tight. No leg room nor room between the person next to you."
Pros: "The crew were super nice even though we were a little late leaving, we made up time."
Cons: "For a stripped down airline I was still very pleased with the trip. It really reminded me of a Southwest Airlines."
Cons: "Flight be on time"
Pros: "Price was reasonable."
Cons: "The lady at the check in counter was unfriendly - gave me hard time communicating with me."
Cons: "It now costs money to select ANY seat, to have ANY luggage whether it is carry-on or checked. The planes are old and poorly maintained. No longer a viable option to fly."
Cons: "The flight was the worse we've ever had. Had us running from north concourse to the south concourse for at least a mile& then busing us back to the north to board the plane. No room in our seats, one drink cart, ¬ able to put anything up in the overhead without paying $30 dollars. Having to pay for a small crummy seat that left our legs cramped after a 3 hour flight. I shutter at the thought of our return flight home! NEVER AGAIN will we fly Sun Country!"
Pros: "Departing & arriving at MSP T2"
Cons: "Paying extra for seats, Personal item carried on having to be stowed under the seat when there is a ton of overhead bin space available, crappy choices for on-board food purchase, no onboard entertainment (other than “renting” a device), & flight attendants that don’t seem to like their job."
Pros: "The attendants were excellent they were very helpful the whole trip."
Pros: "The flight crew on the plane were very good."
Cons: "Well, to start with, we had purchased a ceramic piece for $75 on our vacation. Because we already paid for checked luggage and it was too big for a personal item, we decided to bubble wrap it very, very well and wrap clothes around it to make it secure when packing. We also put a "fragile" sign on outside of suitcase. When we checked luggage, we were told by the attendant at the airport that they would take extra good care of it and because we had it marked, that would help. We had a pretty good flight (other than witnessing 2 men almost fist-fighting because one claimed another was in his space), landed, picked up luggage and went home. When we opened the suitcase, we know it was a mistake to check the gift, but it was not only broken in one or two places (which we understand does happen accidentally), but was shattered into many, many tiny pieces. Obviously our luggage was thrown around greatly, even with the fragile sign on outside of suitcase. We are very disappointed with this and are upset that we couldn't depend on those who we put our trust into. I guess our grandson won't get this gift."
Cons: "This airline is impossible to contact both for reservation changes and their credit card service"
Pros: "Good crew and service, flight was late seats were tough setting in. Very bumpy flight (nothing you can do about that)"
Cons: "I’d like to connect my own device to entertainment options"
Pros: "The efficiency of the in-flight staff"
Cons: "Check-in process was slow, very slow"
Pros: "Quick and helpful staff."
Cons: "Not anything I could think of."
Cons: "To crowded and cramped . No complimentary snacks."
Pros: "On time to Seattle, and comfy flight."
Cons: "The late departure on my return"
Pros: "The crew were nice and professional and efficient"
Cons: "We had to deplane and switch to another aircraft after boarding was complete the first time. We arrived almost two hours late, in the middle of the night, I was really hungry by then. Some complimentary snacks or something would have gone a long way to making it up to us. I had screaming children behind me and I know that's not entirely the airline's fault, butthe delay contributed significantly to the children's misery and thus ours, and the in-flight announcements were way too loud; they woke them up abruptly and started tantrums in several places throughout the cabin."
Pros: "Boarding & deplaning process was quick & efficient. Temperature on the plane was good."
Cons: "Mobile check-in would be so much better. Seats could be a little more comfortable. Some kind of complimentary snack would be nice for longer flights."
Pros: "The airline employees were all very helpful and customer focused."
Pros: "Same crew to San Fran and back 5 days later. They were WONDERFUL. Cheerful, engaging, remembered my husband and I. Were notable courteous and great to everyone. In short, the crew we flew with seemed to really enjoy both each other and just being around people. That means a lot when you are flying."
Cons: "size of the seats. they are very narrow. That being said, I hadn't flown your airline in a while. your leg room is better than most."
Cons: "Not having Internet on a four hour flight in 2017 is really bad. I won't be taking this airline again."
Cons: "No email was sent to me inviting me to check in. Sun country site was down on 9/10 and 9/11, so I could not checkin online."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early at destination"
Cons: "There was no overhead room for carry on bags when I boarded at row 11. I just had a cloth bag and had to keep it at my feet- not comfy leg room for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "bumped to first class. Not really good or bad, since if the flight was more overbooked I could have missed it"
Pros: "On time departures, friendly service"
Cons: "seats not the most comfortable"
Cons: "Check in 55 min befor flight was told to late bought ticket on southwest person was rude snobby arrogant and enjoyed telling me book another flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding, organized by section, starting from the back makes it faster to board."
Pros: "Ticket agents were fabulous, bulkhead seats perfect for my husband who has an injured leg, crew helpful and efficient"
Cons: "Had a neighbor who talked A LOT! And three crying babies on the plane. Nothing you could do, but it was far from relaxing!"
Pros: "This was my first trip using Sun Country and the departure and return flights were direct. I would use this airline again. I like their process for boarding flights. The flight staff were kind and courteous. We took off and landed safely (HUGE PLUS)! At the gate, I sat near the counter and saw how the gate staff treated customers. It was evident they cared about their job and the customers they serve. There was a minor issue when 1 of 2 wheelchairs made it to the gate. They worked hard to track down an additional wheelchair for a customer getting off a flight. They treated customers with questions and requested seat reassignments kindly and were clear and composed in their communication."
Cons: "The seat was rather uncomfortable. It was dirty and hard. I was somewhat disappointed that there were no "complimentary" snacks, but if it's meant to kee fares low, I'm all for it. I'll bring my own then."
Pros: "Always love Sun Country! Much better prices then most, service is always great (Midwest nice ;) and Terminal 2 is effortless to get through! Also got the NICEST lady on the phone when calling with questions prior to leaving, you guys are all around wonderful!"
Cons: "The Plane was very cold and the seats was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Easy check-in and boarding at Minnesota's hometown airline. Will always fly Sun Country if it's an option."
Pros: "SunCountry is a classy operation. I appreciate having another option to fly directly to Boston."
Cons: "The gate at Logan airport is cramped and insufficient. Also no amenities once you clear security."
Pros: "I did not have food or entertainment so cannot rate those things."
Pros: "There were good food options. I didn't order anything, though, so can't rate it."
Pros: "The courteous check- in staff. The direct flight, the amazing punctuality of the flight. In general, the flight and on ground service were great"
Cons: "The only thing that was amiss was the demeanor of one flight attendant. In a response to a (the only from us) call light she responded to us with the following sentence "what do you want". I was able to shrug off the very unprofessional response. However, I wasn't the only passenger who was put off by her attitude and this can unfortunately affect the company's reputation negatively."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfort. Worth the $15 seat upgrade."
Cons: "Nothing. Pleased with flight and cost."
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival Aircraft was relatively clean."
Cons: "The event I flew to attend got changed, so I had to change the dates of my 'Going To' and 'Coming Home' flights. It was not my fault, but I got horribly overcharged to change my flights. I am not working right now nor do I get Unemployment; I booked the flights months ago while I was still working. In that situation, the airline could help a bit more financially. Airline crew going out was courteous and helpful, but there was one attendant on the flight back who was frankly rude to me and bullied me. I do wish airline food was a bit more reasonably priced, and cash payment was accepted."
Pros: "We where about to land at the airport in Minneapolis the flight tool off again, I think there was another flight that was about to land, And the way the pilot took off was perfect. I was impressed so impressed. Our flight from Washington DC too was very smooth take off and landing. I highly recommend"
Pros: "Term 2 and sun country rock"
Cons: "Was all good"
Pros: "Easy to board"
Cons: "There was no air despite the vents We were in the back of the craft and could not hear the pilot Nio tv for a 3 hr flight No wifi and very tight seating."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, seats comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like that they only offer one hot food - a hamburger. A wrap and or sandwich offering (healthier choice) would be better. Other airlines offer more."
Cons: "When we got to Boston, no one from Sun Country was at the counter. We waiting for over 20 minutes until finally someone came to get us checked in (there were about 20 other people waiting). Small plane, flight took off 15 min late because of how long it took them to board. The entire flight was uncomfortable because the temperature in the cab was 78, and the air conditioners were not working. It was one of the worst flights ever."
Pros: "Everything was great. no complaints!"
Pros: "Everone that I had contact with were friendly and professiona l. Its the best experience I've had in a very long time!"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
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: "Easy no hassle check in and board."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. Thank you!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Comfy seat, great entertainment options"
Pros: "seat was basic. prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen."
Cons: "prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen. only food available besides pretzel was pay food."
Cons: "Try to be on time!"
Cons: "If we had access to the WiFi to watch shows earlier like United does, that would be nice."
Cons: "The service and courtesy of the staff wasn’t great."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"
Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"
Pros: "The jet"
Cons: "No advanced seat assignments unless we paid $100 per person?! Recently flew Delta on same equipment (A321). Delta had in-seat entertainment & adjustable head rest"

Cons: "No wifi, no personal TVs"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
