Cons: "Better snacks. No cost for checked first luggage"

Cons: "Nothing. I've flown on worse."

Pros: "It’s not American, United, or Delta."
Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."

Pros: "Alaska is a great airline."
Cons: "Free food would be awesome."

Pros: "Good communication re: the delay, comfy seats, super friendly gate staff, great free movie selection"
Cons: "Not sitting at the gate on the plane for 2+ hours:("

Pros: "Average"
Cons: "Seat back screens. More space."

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."

Pros: "Timing-Fasrer than scheduled"

Pros: "Great! Decent."

Cons: "Delayed. Flue season folks. If your sick just don’t travel!"

Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"

Cons: "Dog allowed to sit next to me. It should be ina crate or at least on the lap of the owner"

Pros: "All good"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Time of flight is not delayed and arrival time is even ahead of the estimated time."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "We were sitting in the plane on the tarmac for 3 hours waiting to take off. The crew did a very poor job announcing what was going on."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "No Free Meal"

Cons: "They did not provide sanck for 4 hr flight and they should keep a few spare head phone"

Pros: "First time on Alaska. Great experience."

Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"

Pros: "Alaska airlines much better than United or American in terms of friendly service, wifi and battery charge, and entertainment options"

Pros: "crew's upbeat attitude"
Cons: "very limited drink choices"

Pros: "We especially liked the in flight movies which you could rent on a tablet like device similar in size to an iPad. Also, we appreciate airlines that still board the plane by row starting in the rear. That is the most sensible way to board a plane. Also, I had plenty of legroom while seated."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "This was a completely booked flight during Xmas week, and the flight was delayed an hour. Alaska Air did a great job of accommodating these difficulties. When I checked in online they had a notice asking if we would volunteer to check bags for free because they knew overhead space would be tight. Once the flight was underway they announced they'd been able to reroute to save us some of that time. And the Alaska Air/Horizon connecting flight was also delayed, most likely to accommodate this large flight. The aircraft is wonderful--the plugs for devices at every seat plus free entertainment piped to our devices really helps to pass the time."
Cons: "Person announcing the boarding needs some enunciation lessons. She spoke too quickly and on top of (or below) other announcements and even kept talking when she was doing something beneath the podium, so no chance to read lips."

Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats"

Cons: "The USB charger on my seat was broken"

Pros: "Excellent experience all around on all flights."

Pros: "I try to book Alaska when I can, they have good leg room for a taller person and their baggage fees are not outrageous like Spirit. You can tell the crew is not completely miserable doing their jobs and treat you like a human most of the time."

Pros: "Love the amount of space availabile for my legs!!"

Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Pros: "The flight attendants made quite a few passes through to make sure everyone had drinks."
Cons: "We were very delayed in taking off because the copilot wasn't there. Many people had connecting flights and the crew did nothing to help them get off the plane first or give any kind of reasrrances that they could make the flight."

Pros: "Free movies!"

Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."

Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"

Cons: "Can I have a refund? My flight has been delayed 3 1/2 hours and then they add another delayed flight to leave from my gate ahead of us. Wonderful."

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

Pros: "The plane was new but with no bells let alone whistles."
Cons: "No monitors/screens at all on plane."

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("

Pros: "Very accommodating staff"

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Space between the rows is narrow, I understand it has nothing to do with the flight itself."

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."

Pros: "I love the leg room on Alasks flights, and I'm always impressed by the professionalism and respect Alaska employees show to their customers."

Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."

Pros: "My flight out of Chicago was delayed for about 3 hours and was no way I was going to catch my connecting flight in Seattle. I called Alaska airlines customer service and they were able to get me rescheduled on two new flights from Chicago to Fairbanks the very next day!! Excellent!!"

Pros: "I liked the seats and comfort, nice crew an allt that."
Cons: "That we were late. I wasn't their fault cause it was because of the weather, but it made me stressed and I couldn't relax."

Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."

Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."
Cons: "The trip was great"

Pros: "The crew very professional. My flight was on time."

Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats really comfortable!"
Cons: "Headphones sold for $ 2. Headphones preferably free"

Pros: "Calm and safe, just like I like it."

Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."

Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."

Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Price"

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"

Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."
Cons: "No entertainment."

Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."

Cons: "It was late"

Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."

Cons: "Well, if our plane had been leaving on time it would've been superb."

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: "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: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "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: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."

Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"

Pros: "Everything was perfect, everyone was nice, there was lots of room, the crew offered snacks frequently, WiFi had a great connection and there was a wide array of entertainment."
Cons: "There was a problem with the plane that they told us after we boarded that delayed our plane an hour. But hey, better safe than sorry!"

Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."

Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."

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"

Cons: "Layover"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

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."

Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."

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."

Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"

Cons: "Didn't stick to zones when boarding customers. Gate agent basically let anyone board during pre boarding and priority boarding, why even offer it if you aren't going to make people adhere to the rules."

Pros: "Friendly staff/ comfortable seating."

Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."

Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"

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..."

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: "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."

Cons: "Use to love this airline now I only take it when I need to since we are now charged for every little thing, carry on, online check in, pick your seat, you don’t even get a little snack of pretzels anymore, only get to buy a snack for 5x more than what they actually cost. No thanks. Never again."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "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: "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."

Pros: "I enjoyed how smooth, organized, and simple things went. We even managed to arrive early"
Cons: "Little leg room"

Pros: "Boarding, crew all great."
Cons: "No entertainment and the seats were SUPER close in front!"

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: "We got here."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever"

Pros: "Quick and helpful staff."
Cons: "Not anything I could think of."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and accomodating!"

Pros: "Flight left on time and was shorter than expected! Captain was very vocal."
Cons: "There was turbulence :(, but I know that is out of everyone's control."

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."

Cons: "It delayed for 3 hours"

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: "One kind male steward."
Cons: "2 hour delay and very turbulent. Innacurate arrival time estimate at time of take-off"

Pros: "Better leg room than some other airlines. Flight was on time. Let us check our bag at the gate = faster boarding.no food"
Cons: "No food or entertainment, should have a 'not applicable ' rating."

Cons: "I couldn't select seats or check in online. I had to call and found out their site is not compatible with Apple computers or devices. That is rediculous."

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: "seats are comfortable, foot room good"

Pros: "Direct flight. Nice staff."
Cons: "Delayed Crying baby next to me for half th flight. Skipped over for food, crushed by rude passenger in front of me."

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: "Upgraded to first class. First time ever doing that and it's the best way to go."

Pros: "everything good would fly again"

Pros: "Service, very nice attendants, availability of entertainment"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm"

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."

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."

On that trip I did a review and gave the whole trip a 1 out of 5 stars. That trip was the trip from hell, with delays, waiting on the Tarmac, deplaning, almost cancelled, more waiting on the Tarmac, wheels up in Reagan, wheels down in ORD, and then more Tarmac waiting for a gate. So I was already more than perturbed when this trip had similar outcomes."

Cons: "There's no room for non skinny people. It was awful"

Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"

Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"

Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."

Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."

Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."

Cons: "On a flight as long as this one was it should have included FREE use of the movies, TV shows, the entertainment feature ."

Pros: "The directTV was great."
