Pros: "IT was ok, for a 45 flight"

After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death?"
Pros: "The efficient boarding. Unlike other airlines, overhead compartment is large enough so passengers don’t need to check in at the gate."
Pros: "Easy on off and let us sleep"
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Alaska Airlines."

I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."
Pros: "On time and can check in at least two bags each passenger !"
Cons: "My luggage was off loaded in Juneau and staff was not very helpful in providing information on claims etc....Very disappointed with Alaska Airlines."
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."
Cons: "My husband and I were seated apart from each other, despite booking the ticket 9 months in advance. I was seated next to a drunk individual who had personal space issues."

Cons: "Change the movies more ofti"
Pros: "the food was really top notch and service was great and friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"
Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Pros: "Kara was really nice to us."
Cons: "Noisy plane."

Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Late going down to Vegas and late coming home from Vegas."
Cons: "We were almost 2 hour delay inside the hot plan..."
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."
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: "Ticket agents Zahara and Consuelo decided I had to pay $40 to carry on a bag on return flight that I had carried on on my destination flight for no charge, as I was steps away from boarding the plane. Very same agents that checked me in at ticketing and said nothing about my carry on bag. This airline extorts money from passengers, pay up or miss your flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 and 1/2 hours. The plane was a mess. One of the seats was broken causing more delays. To top it off my golf clubs never arrived. The final straw was listening to the customer service recording tell me for 30 minutes how seriously they take luggage issues. I guess you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Honestly, it was the best takeoff and landing I've ever experienced (I keep telling people that whenever I talk about my flight) Having never flown Sun Country before, I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff who checked me in and my flight crew. I don't know if it's because the hub is in Minnesota or because we were all coming back from a relaxing vacay in paradise, but it was the friendliest flight I have been on in a long time."
Cons: "Honestly, it was the same gripe that I have about every flight regardless of airline. The seats are super uncomfortable, but as a larger woman, I was happy that the seatbelts fit! I wasn't a huge fan of having to pay for my actual seat after purchasing (and spending a decent chunk of change) on my actual ticket, and the fact that there were no free snacks, but after being able to get the seatbelt to fit, I was so happy that I didn't need snacks :)"
Pros: "Our first flight was canceled due to snowstorm. Once we were rebooked and ready both flights were great! That’s why we choose Sun Country!!!"
Cons: "During a severe snowstorm Sun Country would not make the call to cancel our flight! Almost everything was canceled at 1pm when they shut down the airport...but our flight and 2 other Sun Country flights. So we had to fight the storm to get there in unsafe conditions!!!! As we watched the storm get worse, we actually had to board the plane! Then we had to deboard when the airport shut down again.. I felt very unsafe! By the time they finally canceled at 5:30 we were barely able to get the last cab from the airport. Sun Country put us in a dangerous situation to save a few dollars by not canceling the flight!! I was a flight attendant for Sun Country for a short time and thought I had seen a lot, but this was a very poor judgement call!!"
Pros: "On timeflight. Even arrived early"
Pros: "Good Service, Flight arrived ahead of schedule, hassle free, good value"
Cons: "Wish they had a Mobile App, Online checkin on website using phone was cumbersome"
Pros: "The people at check-in were most helpful ensuring I made my flight since I was late to check-in"
Cons: "I wish my ticket had said I was landing in South Terminal in Austin; however, it's a newer terminal."
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: "Thanks for participating in the Pre-TSA program. Although I thought I was running late (LAX traffic) I presented my mobile pre-check w/my Pre TSA number, it was a breeze and took less than 10 mins for security check"
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"
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)."
Cons: "Not enough leg room, sat by rest rooms very busy at times"
Pros: "On time departures, friendly service"
Cons: "seats not the most comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Clean plane, roomy, easy on off, nice staff"
Cons: "No free snacks, no free entertainment"
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: "Lucked out with no one in the middle seat again.."
Cons: "I was in row 9 so my seat didn't recline because the exit row was behind me which literally made me furious. I was so uncomfortable I asked a flight attendant for a pillow & she said they didn't have any when I in fact saw the overhead compartment in the front of the plane with pillows in it while boarding... I found that super rude."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport about 50 minutes prior to departure due to an unexpected delay. After a poor experience with the online check-in tool (it failed to allow us to check in & wouldn't let me purchase a checked bag), my girlfriend & I made it to the check-in desk about 40 minutes before departure (which has never been a problem with any other airline). The receptionists practically laughed at me when I asked to check in, and without missing a beat or even checking anything on the computer, they told me that the plane was already on the runway waiting to depart. We asked if they could help us book a make-up flight, and they practically laughed again and said, "Yeah, for next Sunday." I found this hard to believe that the plane was on the runway so early. The whole experience was very unpleasant, and we received little help from them. After a half-hour wait on the phone, I was offered a voucher for another Sun Country flight. Very dissatisfied with this. I appreciate the direct flight from MSP-SAV, as I don't think any other airline offers it. But I don't think I'll fly with Sun Country again."
Pros: "The seats"
Pros: "No frills"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. I had no issues there. The crew was great and I was comfortable."
Cons: "I repeatedly had issues with their website and I couldn't checkin online or update any of my information, even when I called them. I also had to connect flights at the airport and I asked the airline beforehand if I had enough time, as I flew into a different terminal. They said that I did, but I almost missed my flight, even though I had two hours. The signage was poor as MSP, which isn't Sun Country's fault, however they made the transfer sound easier than it was."
Pros: "The flight attendants were moderately polite"
Cons: "The flight was 8 hours late. The stated reason "weather" was not credible and we not informed. There was no offer of a meal or any other accommodation at all. I will NEVER fly Sun Country again!"
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: "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: "everything good would fly again"
Cons: "Had to CALL airline to get seat assignment. No was to check in online otherwise."

Pros: "Very caring and friendly crew."
Pros: "Boarding went well and so did getting off the plane."
Cons: "Two of the flight attendants that we dealt with at the back of the plane were for rude not only to my husband and I but to our 7 year old child who was seated in a different row."
Pros: "The plane was on time. The cabin was clean. Seats were fine. All but one of the crew were helpful and kind. Excellent flight with a wonderful pilot(s)."
Cons: "One crew member insisted on her own HERDING of us all in line for the restroom. She treated us all like preschoolers. We were already working out the problem, when she took it upon herself to yell loudly at us all to make room for one person. She sheepishly explained away her actions. Horrifying. I have never felt so degraded on a plane. I can barely imagine, how she would have reacted, if any of us had approached her in the same tone and manner."
Pros: "The crew at the check-in changed my parent's seat so that they can sit next to each other."
Cons: "We called Sun Country to changed seat but music played for 20 min, we couldn't talk to customer service through phone call."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. We were served multiple beverages on this flight."
Cons: "They do not give you complimentary snacks. We have a 6 hour flight no snacks and no entertainment. But both are available for extra charges."
Pros: "Courteous staff, smooth flight"
Cons: "Online check-in does not work."
Cons: "My flight from LAS to LAX was excellent, it was a larger plane , full and was able to stretch out. I would love to fly American Airlines more but flight times for my destinations are not always the best."
Pros: "Crew was excellent especially the first class attendant very attentive and always checking on you"
Cons: "The food needs to be back to normal for first class and also baggage is very slow almost over 30 min wait"

Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Cons: "It took entirely too long to board the plane. Then there were ‘mechanical issues’ that needed dealt with. Well, don’t have everyone sit on the plane for 60 minutes. Don’t continuously state ‘it’ll be fifteen minutes.’ Just give straight answers"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "It was SO hot in the airport terminal and on the plane, but only on our half of the plane. We were all very uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers brought hot food on board at Dallas. McDonalds and KFC odours were overwhelming for first 30 minutes."

Instead he scolded me not to bring carry on luggage if I can't put it in. The bin wax too high for me . I'm 4'10 inc tall and unable to reach the over head bin. And Daryl H, was sitting on my paid chair. A nice passenger offer his help and put the carry on to the bin. I will not book this airline again."
Cons: "Worst staff never flying with this airline again"
Pros: "It was last minute booking, I was balky for the price and the overall experience was comfortable."
Cons: "They forgot to get my coffee but it's nothing major plus we were about to land in 30 mins or so"
Pros: "On time flights."
Cons: "Middle seat."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Then we all were told to re-ticket at customer service. Waited on the line for 2 hours to get a stand by ticket for the next flight. Luckily I was the second from the last that got the seat, or else I would have to wait for the next flight which would take even longer than just drive to Vegas myself. I asked customer service to accommodate me with some food coupon since I had to wait for the next flights...they said they don't have that kind of accommodation, really?!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. The flight arrived early and that was great."
Cons: "It was a bit overcrowded and the internet was a bit spotty"
Cons: "Plane was full!"

Pros: "Crew was great. I had almost the first half of the airplane to myself and got to lay down as my flight was 1230 midnight"
Pros: "The flight was nice and easy. Great food and service."
Cons: "Plane is still yet to be upgraded to full Polaris experience"
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Cons: "The WiFi system is very slow"
Pros: "overall great flights"
Cons: "food could've been a bit better."
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Cons: "Don’t use United out of Charlotte"
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent and went over and above to help us"
Cons: "We were told due to the delay that CSR ‘s would help us with making our flights. Upon arrival no csr. Plane was still at terminal. Had to make 2 calls to a supervisor before csr’s Would do their job and get us boarded. Finally they came to their senses."
Pros: "Good selection of films as usual."
Cons: "I had to put up with *loud* banter from 2 flight attendants at the back of the plane throughout the entire flight, which was freakin' annoying to say the least. I'm NOT interested which pilot or male attendant you find cute or want to make out with. You also really shouldn't laugh at passengers' faces after telling them to resume their seat to the upright position. A real shame since their performance "on the floor" was perfect."
Cons: "This is the fourth time that I've been bumped off of a flight because United overbooked. I'm in the military and each time I was trying to get home to family or fly family to me. I will never fly with United again."
Pros: "As always with United you know what to expect being a Silver Star Alliance member."
Cons: "It was a normal United flight, good, but not outstanding - in coach class - it is one of the most reliable national carriers."
Cons: "Crew was late and we boarded an hour later than was scheduled which delayed our flight."
Pros: "The front desk was able to change our seats so that my husband and I were able to sit together and we were very appreciative for this."
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable, too long and they were unable to provide meals and ran out of plastic cups."
Pros: "Free wifi & drinks, good time and friendly staff"
Cons: "The ride was bumpy (not their fault) and the plane was just loud in general."
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: "My connection was clear across the airport, it was quite the trek when the second flight was already boarding"
Pros: "priority boarding; seat;"
Cons: "snacks selection was limited"
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."

Pros: "I liked that I personally wasn't beaten in the face"
Cons: "I don't like United. They can suck a fat one."
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Pros: "Crew. Pilot did an excellent job getting us back to Chicago. Flight attendants were friendly. Couldn't rate food or entertainment,there wasn't any."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable...fold-down tray was too low..seats too narrow."
Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "How can they keep on squeezing people in a plane... this is becoming ridiculous"
Pros: "Very smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
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: "Seats are to small but fortunately sat directly behind first class and had plenty of leg room. The new entertainment system worked well."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Pros: "Updated plane, free movies"
Cons: "Only 1 little snack for 8-10 hour flight"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
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: "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: "food is so bad, low quality and small portion looong period before main meal and last meal"
Pros: "I liked the movies on the seat."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay because they didn't know how to manage the weight of the plane. We waited 2 hours on the plane to take off, and ended up missing our next flight"
Cons: "Airlines asking the economy customers to upgrade the seats . Without the upgrade they are giving random seats numbers to the family"
Pros: "I was on an exit row so I had a lot of room and could sleep comfortably. The luggage came quickly and both pieces were there!"
Cons: "Noisy children kept waking me up but I know that was beyond the control of the airline."
Cons: "They canceled my flight, lost my luggage made me miss events in my life on my vacation and only comped me 20$ food ticket which is nothing in an airport. And I was stuck in an unfamiliar airport for 10 hours waiting for a new flight through another airline. Oh and dod I mention the bag they lost for a whole day was 50lbs of fresh Alaskan seafood and yes it all was thawed.... I will never fly United airlines again."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "PA unreadable, entertainment screen broken, special allergy safe meal lost, luggage didn't transfer to next plane and we actually had to drive back to airport and get it 25 hours later loosing time on our trip,staff apathetic to everything! Will NEVER fly United again!"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly. Jumped at any and all requests. Always looking for ways to assist all flyers. Boarding was quick and easy. Plane was on time, boarded quickly, AC worked perfectly, plenty of blankets and food was spectacular. Crew made the 6 hour flight feel like an hour of comfort."
Cons: "No wifi because we traveled through Canada, and the tv was no working"
Pros: "I liked the friendly smiles everywhere. I was lucky to score a window seat with no one in the middle."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay $25 to check one bag and the Wi-fi didn't work all flight."
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no TVs, no free wifi"
