Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "When I checkied in online for my flight i had to pay for the seat, as well as for my carrying luggage. No idea ahead of time these fees would be added."
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: "Thankful that we got there safely; certainly a competent pilot. Thank you!"
Cons: "Crew members were nowhere to be found; couldn't even flag one down to get a cup of water. The sweet lady in front of me,, thought English was her second language, had a crew member raise his voice to her to tell her to sit down, this after 30 + minutes of her looking to and for to get someone to just get her a cup of water so she could take her medicine. I suppose she should've pushed the attendant button but with English was her second language she must not have known this procedure? I asked for a soda and once he brought me the disgustingly warm soda with cup of ice I had to hold it on my lap the whole time because my tray table was broken. Def could tell that my once-favorite airline has switched ownership. I know changes have to be made in this day and age but it was really gone downhill. I gave you a 5-star Yelp and 5 Star Trip Advisor last year and have talked you up to so many people; sure wish I could do that again. :("

Cons: "No free video screen"
Cons: "My disappointment was not with sun county I’ve always had great fights on sun country it’s with the company I booked it with price line , do to the recent shootings in vagus I canceled it because of my fears , and was told I would not be able to use at a later time nor would get my money back so that’s for asking."

Cons: "Plane was super hot the entire flight and nothing could be done."
Pros: "Overall great experience. The flights were on time, crew was friendly and courteous, and boarding was smooth. The only reason I gave "food and entertainment" categories 1 star is because there wasn't any offered. Both flights were quick and food and entertainment were unnecessary. Great experience overall!"
Pros: "boarding was easy and fast, crew was friendly and prompt"
Cons: "Had an aisle seat and the space for storing bag underneath was tight and smaller than the other two seats.

Cons: "I would like better food choices."
Pros: "The price of the flight! My luggage got to my destination. Liked flying out of the Humphrey Airport in MPLS."

Pros: "The plane seemed extremely clean, fairly new, and the service was good."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly cramped together tightly. I'm a small person sitting in the center seat with two reasonably sized man next to me. No need to be so cramped. It didn't help that my seat didn't recline either that was one of the ones in front of the exit , So I understand."

I just lost a day of work because we didn't land until 5:30am central time."
Pros: "Everything was expeditious, staff was courteous and the flight went smooth. Thanks Sun Country Air!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very attentive and kind."
Cons: "My tray table was broken so I couldn't use my laptop on the flight and lost working hours. My armrest was also broken making the entire seat pretty uncomfortable. There was less foot room than other airlines I fly."

Cons: "N/A pls keep up the great work!"
Pros: "On time!"

Cons: "Everything went quickly and smoothly. Great flight; even the weather was less turbulent than expected."
Cons: "You really need to install jet ports at Punta Gorda. We sat on tarmac for almost two hours due to rain and lightning in the 5 mile radius. Would have avoided this delay with a jet port."
Pros: "We finally got to our destination"
Cons: "Uhh not boarding and then the pilot coming on and saying "whoops we have to deplane since the weather is bad." Really? Why not just delay boarding instead of putting everyone through that. Terrible experience"
Pros: "On time flight... good stew's, all around pleasant experience."
Cons: "the seats are hard and very narrow."
Pros: "The crew was great. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I wish water was free. That is the only thing I don't like. I understand it's a cheap airline so everything cost extra, which is fine. But come on, water should be free."

Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"
Pros: "For exception of price there is nothing I liked about"

Cons: "Airbus seats are as uncomfortable as school bus seats."
Cons: "The flight was delayed all day!!!"

Cons: "On the return trip, I had to wait 30 minutes for my luggage."

Cons: "Late departure without any explanation. TSA really under staffed."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, on schedule and the cleanliness of the cabin."

Cons: "Long wait due to plane speaker malfunction. Offered free drink pours on flight once we finally took off but it was a very small “2 sip” pour."
Pros: "Passengers were fun"
Cons: "Need entertainment"
Pros: "Pretty empty flight so we were able to change seats. Good thing because my family wasn’t sitting together-$12 to pick or change seats ahead of time. Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it. Trenton and punta gorda airports are small, you have to walk to the plane. I love the small airports, no lines , easy parking!"
Cons: "Seats aren’t that comfortable and don’t recline even a bit, tray table is small."
Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."
Pros: "Crew likes to have fun with their passengers -- making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. It's a budget airline so you have to pay for things like refreshments and snacks (also, carryons and if you want you boarding pass printed at the airport) -- but don't let that sway you! All it takes is a little prior organization (we packed a couple of sandwiches and printed our passes at home, plus packed very light). Overall a great experience."
Pros: "Affordable and fast"
Cons: "Big guy sitting next to me took up 2 seats!!"
Pros: "Direct flight to my Destination"
Cons: "Rental car I paid for on Allegiant website didn't include $50 in airport and sales taxes making it look like the Allegiant rentals were about the same as renting directly from rental car companies. Problem is that Allegiant didn't include taxes in the quote or amount I paid online. Surprise when I got to my destination and was told it would be $50 more. Alamo agent said I wasn't the first person to have that problem. Then on return my bag was damaged and was told I could place a claim at the ticket counter. It would have been helpful to have an agent there or a way to contact an agent. No such luck. After bag charges, poor service and hidden fees Allegiant isn't really a great deal."
Pros: "Love this flight from Belleville to Punta Gorda. On time and great crew."
Cons: "Allegiant needs to put more than just school bus seats in their aircraft."
Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to Irma in Florida. Customer service agent was fantastic. I was able to rebook die the following week without any hassle."
Cons: "I didn't get to fly to Florida when I first chose."
Pros: "Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."
Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "45 minute delay my 1st flight and a 2 hour delay on the 2nd. It's become so late so consistently that I don't even bother to arrive early anymore."
Pros: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."
Cons: "They booked me and two others for the same seat"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and quick once we were in the air..."
Cons: "We waited for another crew from another plane and had to leave almost an hour later than the scheduled flight."
