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."

Cons: "There was no entertainment (movies) on this long flight. Not an issue for me, but I know other airlines typically do have them."

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: "Stewardesses were very nice."
Cons: "I paid for my smaller bag to go with cargo. Got to airport - no bag. Was sent to Alaska Air with the folks who had sent their bag ala carte (meaning they didn't pay) Waited for 20 min for someone to come out! They all got their bags and I was told mine was the ONE bag they took off the plane because the airlines had over booked cargo. Really - take off a paid bag but bring people who try to stuff too many bags in the plane and get to send theirs free. I live over 4 hours from airport and was told my suitcase was in Seattle and would not be here until next morning and airlines would call to confirm. No one called, no one answer the message I left. Didn't reach anyone until the next day and was told my suitcase didn't come in until another day later and they it was Fedexed to me. I was not happy as I had Christmas gifts that I had traveled with. Lack of communication by airline, lack of customer service. Still waiting for a "voucher" for future travel - they are supposed to email me with that info. Not yet."

Cons: "I will never fly with Alaska again."

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: "My flight was canceled and I never made it to billings for my sons 4th birthday, traveling with an infant after my grandpas funeral and never making it to my destination. ..ill never fly again"

Pros: "Very accommodating staff"

Pros: "The flight crew supplied plenty of drinks throughout the flight."
Cons: "Those seats are just never comfortable in economy class. They need lumbar adjustment."

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

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."

Cons: "This flight was first delayed, then not listed on the reader board. Then the flight added a stop over in Seattle for the the only reason that the crew was maximizing their allowed time to work. This delayed arrival at final destination. They could have brought on a fresh crew in Chicago but they did not do that."

Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"

Cons: "Coffee was super week No movies ORD-JFK"

Cons: "Tv dont work in a fly of 4hr 30 min"

Cons: "This flight was very delayed"

Pros: "Free wireless"
Cons: "I'm not in Charlotte"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The screens on the back of the seats are showing their age and the controls on the armrests are causing your neighbor to change your channel or the brightness of the screen. Letting everyone stream content to their own devices would probably be a better option, with safe charging available."

Pros: "Service was awesome, 100% recommended"

Pros: "Loved the roomy seats"
Cons: "Sound system was low quality. Hard to here the movie."

Pros: "Unbelievable for the price."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say."

Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Took 3+ hours to get in the plane"

Cons: "The cabin crew was a little lacking and the captain did not mentioned that we had landed almost a full hour later than scheduled."

Pros: "More leg room Affordable prices Snacks dunkin donut coffee Pleasant flight attendant Punctuality"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew talked a big game. They were ready for anything, including loss of cabin pressure, paid snacks, and even a water landing."
Cons: "No water landing! I was excited to float around on a hot day, go down an awesome slide, and catch some sick waves, but come on people, we never even got a chance!"

Cons: "could not make it in time. Then we got on plane and pilot said it was an electrical problem on the flight but the generators were now up and at em again. Very hair raising ride for me - got in at 2:30 am with another hour to drive home - and I lost a LOT of confidence which I have always had in Jet Blue. I hope this is not the future we can expect with you"

Pros: "The crews were very friendly A lot of options from direct tv and other entertainment programs The seats were wide enough Free Wifi"
Cons: "The plane got 2 hours delayed The screen was too small There was no charger on the plane Food option was limited"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was very late leaving Chicago. We sat on the plane for quite a while (over 30 min) shut up tight with little air circulation AND no information about why we were not leaving the gate. Flight crew were not very friendly - almost "marched" up and down the aisle and barked at people."

Pros: "No gate, waited 2 hours in plane"

Pros: "Everything is ok"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"

Cons: "Turbulence was terrible, understand that is not JetBlue issue - wanted to note."

Pros: "Captain and crew"

Pros: "You took great care of my wife who needed a wheelchair. the flight itself was delayed due to weather. I totally understand. I love the extra legroom"

Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."

Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."

Cons: "Can’t think of anything"

Cons: "Almost"

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."

Cons: "Add A Display Board For When Cabin Sections Are Boarding"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."

Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."

Pros: "Everything! Flight-Flight Attendants-Peanuts-Coffee-Pilot"
Cons: "I’d love to have a free fruit or veggie snack. Just a small bag"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."

Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."

Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"

Pros: "The friendliness of the flight crew and professionalism"
Cons: "The seats in the Boeing 717 or way too cramped. You would think there will be more legroom in the exit row but there is not"

Pros: "In flight movies"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late taking off which made us miss our connection to chicago so we are stuck in Atlanta tonight with unplanned expenses we were not planning on!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Pros: "On time. Good customer service. Easy route, no hassles."

Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"

Pros: "I'm 6'6" and used to having my knees jammed hard against the seat in front of me (right into the metal frame). The knee room on this flight was better, they weren't even touching the seat!"

Cons: "Wifi not working"

Pros: "The flight attendants in this flight were amazing. By far the best I have had in a very long time."

Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"
Cons: "Inwasny aware my small pocket knife wouldn't be accepted at the airport even though it has been cleared before and the staff was a bit rude about it.the food"

Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."

Cons: "turbulance"

Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"

Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"

Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5+ hours past its scheduled 12:15 departure due to mechanical issues with the plane. Delta was only able to offer a $50 travel voucher for this huge inconvenience."

Pros: "It was great and very roomy I felt like a movie STAR!!!"
Cons: "N.A"

Pros: "The fight was delayed but they gave us complimentary drinks on the flight. Nice."

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"

Pros: "I got to change my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. Our flight was delayed and we were not updated nor given a reason as to why."

Pros: "Crew was awesome. Our flight was delayed 6 hours but they were so kind about it and we got vouchers."
Cons: "My glasses were stolen from my bag. I assume the airport staff before they were put on plane."

Cons: "Crew was not friendly or kind - acted burnt out and burdened"

Pros: "At least there was a USB port to Charge my phone."
Cons: "The flight was three hours late and suncountey lost my luggage. When I looked at my claim ticket it had someone else’s name on it."

Pros: "Ontime, arrived 10 minutes early"
Cons: "Had to wait 45 minutes for luggage, since 3 flights arrived at same time....at least they explained the delay."

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding. Nice crew"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose a seat with suncountry, which I chose not to do. Also have to pay for food, which I did not do so unable to attest for the quality"

Pros: "It wasn’t a full plane."
Cons: "Was put at wrong gate. My aunt was wheelchair assisted and was put on pushed through during regular loading. And last but not least. On top of buying the ticket to fly to Vegas. We had to purchase the seat we sat in on the plane. Isn’t that what the ticket was for in the first place. A seat on the plane"

Cons: "Instant coffee? Really? Hate the way they hide the baggage fees very bumpy landing but weather appeared to be very calm."

Cons: "While the cart was parked next to me the flight attendant dropped a can of soda which splattered on my jacket, shirt, pants, feet and shoes - needless to say, I wasn't happy to be wearing soda for the next 10 hours. While she did apologize, their just wasn't any heart, concern or follow-up on it. No steps to give me water or napkins to clean myself up. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Boarding and disembarking was easy as I was behind first class. Luggage pick was easy. I lost my wallet and the staff received it and returned it. I didn’t get to say thank you to the associate who returned it at sfo."
Cons: "Plane was dirty late and tight. No entertainment like on other carriers. The plane was loud and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "When we booked the flights, we were not allowed to choose our seats and did not see any notice about charging for carry on bags. When we checked in, we had to pay extra for carry on or checked bags and had to pay for seat assignments. No complimentary snacks either. Disappointing."

Cons: "System failure and was not expecting a sun country subsidiary."

Cons: "Took 1 hour to get bags in Florida , more than 30 minutes in Minnesota"

Cons: "Why do we have to pay for our seat when we've already paid for the flight? $15 for an isle seat!!! And $3 for a middle seat!!! Why isn't it included in the ticket cost? I'm not sure I'll ever fly with them again. Between that and the ridiculous restriction of carryon bags to one, I am very disappointed."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "It was sooo hot in the plane. Very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Was not offered accommodation due to their flight delay, which made me miss my connecting flight. Young woman alone in Minneapolis without any help or guidance, very uncomfortable expirience."

Pros: "Seat position"
Cons: "Didn’t like landing Way to hard on breaks(lol) everyone in my row plus others pitched forward aggressively"

Cons: "Flight was 2:00 hours late, which felt even longer because my in-bound flight on Thursday was 1:30 hours late. They didn't really explain why it was late. They just said "traffic in the NYC area," which could mean anything. I didn't get a ticket until the gate, which I hate. And because the flight was delayed, I never got a ticket until we boarded. The only good thing was they gave me an exit row, which was comfortable and allowed me to get on the plane first. But that was just luck. Probably not flying Sun Country again."

Cons: "Everything about this plane and trip says cheap. I think the seats are made of cardboard"

Pros: "Freindly check in."
Cons: "Cabin crews. Looks like they are either tired or lacks interest in their profession."

Pros: "excellent flight--On time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and plane was on time"
Cons: "Deboarding took awhile and I couldn't hear the captain over the speakers"

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time. There was a beverage service."
Cons: "Ticket counter was understaffed and staff that were there were slow. Strangely, no kiosk at which to print boarding passes so some people were in line just to print a boarding pass, which made the wait even longer."

Pros: "I like"

Cons: "waited in line for over an hour and then was told i could not board the flight! Next flight was in four days! How can they do this? Called the supervisor down and she had no authority to do anything! She handed me an 1-800 number and told me to call them. Asked for transportation to the main terminal and she pointed down the aisle and said " the train is thatwa way " Here's who will get you home - 1-800 - DELTA."

Cons: "small seats and when we go into the air there were plenty of seats to spread out. The crew should have announced that it would okay to disberse."

Pros: "The crew gate agents and ticketing were all amazing"
Cons: "Like every other airline no snacks you can buy them"

Pros: "Employees at checkin and on board were very pleasant and helpful. Plane was spacious and had enough leg room."
Cons: "They still don't have free snacks and entertainment but getting used to bringing our own along so not a big deal."

Pros: "The flight was cheap and non stop! The flight attendant's were all very nice. Also i was able to move to a window seat. This was my first time using kayak and flying sun country and it was a excellent experience."

Pros: "Friendly and efficient air staff. I like the way I was treated on the plane. I had a delicious hot cheeseburger. I was given a really nice thank you and goodbye when I left. That genuine thank you with a smile is the reason I will choose Sun Country again as well as recommend Sun Country to my friends and family."
Cons: "I was too squeezed in. The seats are really too close together. Next time I will fly first class!"

Pros: "Good prices, good friendly crew, arrived at least a 1/2 hour earlier than we were supposed to..overall excellent"
Cons: "Better snack selection other than that it was an excellent experience"

Pros: "The flight had to make an emergency landing. I understand the stress that can have, but we kept being told different things, the people that waited patiently ended up getting the short end and sat around all day. When we were told we would know more in 5 minutes, that took 25, when we were told we would know more and to keep sitting there in the small area we would know more in about 20 minutes, it too 45."
Cons: "Kept being misdirected."

Pros: "Flight attendants very helpful and accommodating."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and too close to restrooms."

Pros: "everything was great except"
Cons: "1. was not aware that Sun Country flights are in Terminal 2 - MInneapolis airport is not well marked regarding which airlines are in which terminals when you drive in on the highway 2. THe monitor in terminal 2 said gate H4 and it was gate H2. 3. Took a long time to get from terminal 1-terminal 2 on public transit early on a sun morning 4. They were "training" new TSA people at the Terminal 2 builing early sun morning - also took extra time! 5. I almost missed the flight!!"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding."
Cons: "The size of the seating area. I'm a big guy and don't have much room on the plane."

Pros: "Over 12 hour delay. Barely any counication"

Pros: "Good flight!"
Cons: "Sometimes couldn't do online check-in, was instructed to check-in at the airport."

Pros: "Crew were great, seat sizes were comfortable & overheads were bigger than other domestic airlines (a small thing that made a big difference to boarding)."
Cons: "A complimentary snack would have been nice."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours - we were originally scheduled to depart at 9pm and didn't take off until 4am. There was no communication from Sun Country about the delays, or why were being delayed and they no offered compensation for the extremely poor experience. I just lost a day of work because we didn't land until 5:30am central time."

Pros: "The flight was on-time and went smoothly. The crew were helpful and polite. We were allowed to bring on a carry on and a personal item for no additional charge. There was a complimentary beverage service."
Cons: "A downside is there was no in-flight entertainment and no complimentary snack. (Although there were snack options for purchase)"

Pros: "First time flying Sun Country. Great experience both ways. Will fly with them again."

Pros: "So convenient in mpls!"
Cons: "I suggest in flight wifi for purchase on your own device"

Pros: "All other aspects of a flight"
Cons: "The girl behind me constanly kicking my seat !!!!!. Never been so annoyed in my life."

Cons: "We will never fly Suncountry again. Very bad expierence."

Pros: "Staff friendly & efficient Price was good."
Cons: "Tiny seats -- no leg room."

Cons: "First time we have flown First Class on American Airlines and service was outstanding and perfect! Thank you for an amazing experience!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Handicap issues. We were exiting on the tarmac in Charlotte- all crew left us on the plane waiting for assistance to get off. Finally when someone showed they would not come up the ramo to get my Mom. I backed her down myself while 5 bewildered airport workers looked confused."

Cons: "2 hour delays on both flights of a round trip"

Pros: "You got us there safely."
Cons: "Not sure who is at fault for running out of de-ice solution, but keeping us sitting on the tarmac without air ventilation for almost 3 hours... with only an apology and a last minute glass of water? that was terrible customer service."

Pros: "On time. Friendly and attentive staff."

Pros: "One flight attendant was very nice and petsonable."
Cons: "Already checked in and then flight canceled 10 hours before departure. Paid for preferred seating but rebooked on smaller aircraft full and had to sit in last row. Not happy and arrived 2 hours latet than original flight. Tried to explain this at gate to American employee but she told me to sit down until name was called. Probably could have had better seats earlier if she could have listened to my issue but she wouldn't listen to me. Didn't even have the chance to tell her what had happened."

Pros: "They got me there on time"
Cons: "Long delay getting off STL-CLT. Made it to gate for CLT-ROC. Then, crew delay. The usual crammed interior, cheap snacks, feeling about like a public bus"

Pros: "A cheap option to upgrade to 1st was offered that ended up being a net 0 cost upgrade for me so I took it. Comfortable on an old (but oh so nice) aircraft."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes early to the airport but then had to sit at a remote pad so that we ended up being 5 minutes late to the gate. A short transfer was made even more difficult, and a massive waste if time and fuel sitting and waiting. Figure out your gates early and better, and move around if needed. At the very least, bring up some stairs and buses to get passengers to the terminal and then tow the aircraft in when you have a gate available."

Pros: "I fflew Delta last Nov. Had meals movies dinner inks etc. American I am serv d beverages no meals and no movies. Getting ridiculous"

Pros: "Great seats in first class"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Room between rows Entertainment from St Louis to Phoenix"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no compensation"

Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."

Pros: "Fast"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and boarding was a pain. Not sure why you wouldn’t want to board from the back to front. Weather grounded us at our loading airport so we were stuck with the option of staying the flight or going in the lobby."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. On time flight"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks:("

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Quick boarding, on time departure and early arrival. No waiting for a gate at LGA upon arrival - excellent."

Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."

Pros: "Spacious seats"

Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."

Pros: "I was so happy I could check in online and boarding was a breeze. I actually got to sit by the window when my original seat was in the middle. So nice of the ladies to suggest it to me."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "The video monitor for my seat was broken. So, low entertainment score."

Pros: "everything was on tyime"

Pros: "On time take off"

Pros: "A nonstop flight, with a friendly efficient crew, met my expectations. A crew member went above and beyond when I asked for a coffee stirrer with my coke and ice."
Cons: "I've been spoiled by another airline's access to screens on the back of the headrest. I have my own hand held devices to entertain myself instead."

Cons: "Flight was late, got a message from Kayak that it was delayed 3 hours...thank goodness I happened to check again, because then it was only delayed for 41 mins, then it gave me an update that it was only 21 mins delayed, then went back to 41! Pretty inconvenient, and it would have been nice to get a text, not just some silent pop up"

Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"

Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"

Cons: "good"

Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."

Pros: "Smooth - trouble free - calm process"

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The storage are very small, by the time i boarded everything was full. I had to hand carry bags and i had to put it in front of me which is a very small space already, on top of that i had the window sit so i had no space to move. it was very uncomfortable, and flight was delayed. We sat there for an hour before taking off but i understand its due to the weather but it was my worst plane ride not worth 300dollars. I will not ride american airline again."

Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."

Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"

Cons: "Got to charlotte with 80 minutes to connect. Sat on the tarmac for 60 waiting for a gate. Missed connection by <5 minutes. Thanks, AA!"

Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Airline"

Cons: "Boarding took forever, the flight was over 2 hours late which caused me to miss my connecting flight and my military orders were not honored - I still had to pay extra to take all my gear back to my duty station. Never had that issue with any other American airline."

Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."

Cons: "No food or beverages for me. I slept comfortably on my flight"

Pros: "You provide me with the best ticket prices and to me that was the the most important part of of the trip thx"
Cons: "The airlines charging for your luggage"

Pros: "Plenty of leg room no entertainment so I dozed."
Cons: "People stuffing oversized bags in overhead."

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"

Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Cons: "Would be nice to know ahead of time if flight is equipped with an in seat television so as to be prepared to bring headphones."
