Pros: "Gate people kept changing the gate"
Cons: "Been on time"
Pros: "Truth is it was a red-eye flight and there was only 12 of us on the plane. I slept the whole way"
Pros: "Southwest notified us via text that our flight was cancelled but Yvonne at the service counter did everything to get us on an EARLIER flight home. The usual GREAT service that sets Southwest Airlines apart from the rest!"
Pros: "Live Tv and Movies"
Cons: "Southwest flight was delayed over an hour with no explanation. Crew members were rude."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seat was just a seat"
Cons: "Nothing! The flight was great. The crew was very friendly, helpful, and courtesy!"
Cons: "Boarding area was in a very cramped area. Flight delayed."
Cons: "Communication. Austin airport guaranteed that connectors would be made in San Jose even with a delayed departure as planes were being held, but the connection was indeed missed and in fact the connection left San Jose early."
Cons: "Better, healthier snack choices. Ritz crackers are loaded with salt and white flour."
Pros: "Pleasant flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay due to routine maintenance oversight Unusable WiFi Throttled out of approach 15 mins delay Total delay 1 hour"
Pros: "Empty flight"
Cons: "Wish they didn’t switch baggage claim turnstile last minute"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Delay after delay."
Pros: "Due to delay, asked for drinks and was turned down rudely for no reason. Could have simply explained drinks aren’t served from the ground."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Cons: "The flight was late and the communication about lateness was atrocious. When it was time to board, there was no plane, no gate attemdants and no announcements. Then we boarded to find there was a crew issue, sat on the plane for 90 minutes, half de planed, the reboarded all with no explanation"
Pros: "Confortable flight on a short flight."
Cons: "It would be better to have assigned sitting."
Pros: "Service was great! On-time departure."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient. Captain was communicative and flight attendants good."
Cons: "2 hour delay due to mechanical problems. We were on the plane for 4 hours total for a 2-hour flight."
Pros: "The flights were in time, boarding was well coordinated."
Cons: "No announcements were made after SW028 landed to inform passengers regarding the long wait on the tarmac."
Pros: "I appreciate that the crew did their best to make everyone happy and comfortable. I also appreciated that since the flight was delayed the crew did their best to make sure the boarding process was quick and as painless as possible."
Cons: "The connection in St. Louis was tight and unfortunately the departure gate was on the other side of the terminal so the Austin passengers had to hustle to make sure to make the flight. I’m not sure why my KTN did not connect to the tickets and so I was not able to utilize the pre-check security, which is a bummer. I have my number on my SW account so I’m not sure why this time it did not connect automatically as it as done in the past."
Pros: "We had to sit on the taxiway for 20 minutes post arrival while a gate opened. This is not fun with a toddler. Get your operations act together!! Don’t hold your passengers hostage to squeeze in more flights. Perhaps you need to consider busing. I’ll fly someone else next time."

Pros: "Loved the attention the crew gave to my family and the rest of the passengers."
Cons: "The flight delay and the length of time it took for Southwest to book new flights for passengers."
Pros: "The crew makes the flight! Friendly, entertaining."
Cons: "Half hour delay."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "I had to get another ticket at the counter even though I had a ticket already? This put me to the back of the line again."
Pros: "I usually use Southwest to travel inside the US. I’m always happy with their service and the quality of the flight"
Pros: "Flight Crew was great!!! Nothing like taking off listening to Top Gun music over the loud speaker, best flight ever!!!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, flight attendants were polite, club soda was served with lime as requested, no complaints"
Pros: "I like the "paperless" procedure and early check in through the app. The flight attendants are always cheerful."
Cons: "I used to not like the boarding process, but now that I'm used to it I enjoy it."
Pros: "The plane was completely full and it was comfortable. The flight attendants were friendly and always had a smile. Very professional."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wanted to be a stand up Comedian. It was a little trying but my wife liked his routine more than I did."
Pros: "Boarding is easy. Friendly service."
Cons: "My bags never made it on the plane, and it wasn't specifically located because you don't scan bags until they arrive at their destination. It's more than a little inconvenient because I couldn't change clothes, but I also didn't have to drag my bag to the hotel."
Pros: "Very spacious, lots of leg room"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway too long."
Pros: "The crew is very engaging and always smiling"
Pros: "Good service, good prices, free baggage, changeable tickets"
Cons: "I love flying Southwest because their flight attendants are fun to be around. The flight attendant we had on this flight was rude and insensitive. When my mother, who is very cold-natured in general asked for a hot chocolate, he replied with, "Okay, it's like 100 degrees outside!" making her feel as if she was abnormal. We're not outside, we're inside the plane where it's temperature controlled. What is it to him that she wanted hot chocolate? Sounds like he was being too lazy to make it. The flight was early in the morning and in many cultures, it is common to have a hot drink in the morning so this whole situation made him seem culturally insensitive as well. I heard several smart-aleck responses to several passengers throughout the flight. Normally, I enjoy flying SWA but I couldn't get off this flight fast enough."
Pros: "Really good service security was fast staff were lovely"
Cons: "Not enough usb charging points spread around the airport."
Pros: "Staff Boarding On-time WiFi"
Cons: "Always seems so hot on SW planes before take off, like the air is never turned on until we reach 10K feet The snack is super lackluster compared to the selection on Jet blue and delta."
Pros: "My wife left a small carry-on in the overhead. We called and filed online but weren't sure it would turn up. SW called today and is sending it to us. Great relief to my wife."
Pros: "The flight took off and landed without me being harmed in the process."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour and they didn't update the departure delay until I was almost on the plane. The gate changed twice, but they did manage to update that. Once we landed, our gate was occupied by another plane. After 20 minutes, I finally got off the plane only to find that the baggage claim was never posted. 30 minutes later, I went to the ticket desk, and then they announced the baggage claim. I'm not upset about the delays, but I'm very annoyed with the lack of communication."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Latest and last flight into Logan and somehow didn't have a gate to dock into, sat waiting to get off the plane for over an HR. I'll never fly Southwest again. Terrible scheduling on arrival for an expensive ticket, being the last flight, how could we not get off the plane?!"
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming. The flight was delayed but the crew moved swiftly and efficiently to get us aboard the flight and to our destination. I enjoyed flying Southwest!"
Cons: "I was disappointed about not getting any consideration on my last two flights after two solid weeks of travel that had me on 12 flights in 14 days. So much for that legendary southwest customer service."
Pros: "Southwest still offers free bags and the available wifi is convenient. The crew onboard was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "LGA is just the worst! We were delayed and it's impossible to get in and out of the airport. Cabins are dated and feel spartan. Not having assigned seats is archaic and stressful. People don't actually follow the rules, and it makes the flight feel more like flying on a bus. The staff at midway was strangely rude and dismissive when asked about upgrading my boarding position."
Pros: "The attendants are always so friendly. If you're nice to them they are super nice to you. Flight was great and I would do it again. Other than the grown woman that had a hissy fit like a 5 year old that the middle seat wasn't available next to me because my husband was in the bathroom, it was a lovely experience."
Cons: "I still am not a fan of the pick your seat thing and having to pay ahead to have the option to have two seats together. There were 4 of us traveling together and to get us all together we had to pay an extra $60. Each way. Not a fan"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "When we landed they parked the plane a foot from where it needed to be. We all had to be reseated while they moved the plane a foot. It still didn't seem to work. It took 20 minutes before the door was opened to deplane."
Pros: "Crew did a fantastic job"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Good selection of movies streamed to phone"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "Crew was good,,,"
Cons: "Don’t be an hr.late taking off for starters!"
Cons: "Enjoy Alaska air"
Pros: "Crew was considerate and prompt."
Pros: "Very roomy seating with ample leg room. Snack service was good."
Pros: "They were nice and calm workers."
Cons: "I asked to check my bag while at the gate, and I was told yes just give me one second. They proceeded to call groups to enter the plane. I wasn’t helped. They forgot about me, then I went up 10 minutes before departure to board, and they told me I was late. It was a mess with overbooking too."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so long, I missed my wedding day and had to rent a car and drive Shane was horrible"
Pros: "Super friendly staff. Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Short flight, generous complimentary drink portions."
Cons: "Another passenger was in my assigned seat. When I called him on it, he acted all confused, but made no effort to move. I had to put my bag in a further bin because there was no room in the one next to my seat and when I returned to my seat, the man was still there. I told an attendant, but the man only gave me the number of HIS seat and told me it was the same. I told him it was NOT the same. I assumed he wanted to sit next to a friend, so I just let it go and the flight attendant just kind of drifted away. I also didn't want to be the one getting tackled by an Air Marshall for causing a fuss. Turns out, that man didn't even know the person he was sitting next to. I suspect he just wanted to get out of the plane sooner. Either way, this shouldn't be allowed to happen - what's the point of choosing your seats if someone else can just take it from you?"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Coffee refills"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "I love Virgin America and was surprised I was getting on one of their planes. I later found out Alaska bought VA out. The moon lighting and easy access to food/drink choices on touch screen is a plus."
Pros: "Not much to say hear. I would expect better service since they aquired virgin America"
Cons: "Crew didn't have a friendly approach to passengers they all seemed rude Not enough food on board or even drinks. I asked for water and she made it seem an inconvenience. Barely any legroom. Also the passenger that was reassigned to the seat next to me was not happy as they would not help her switch seats with anyone as she had a need for assisted care."
Pros: "Nice movies Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"
Pros: "Flight was efficient and smooth, attendants were all very kind, we arrived early, and my bags made it intact."
Cons: "I was shocked that there wasn't an in-flight meal, or at least more of a snack. It's a 7 hour flight from Chicago!"
Pros: "Arrived 5 min early and bags at bag claim in less than 20 min"
Cons: "The flight attendant went on and on and ON about how turbulent air was reported ahead, just because we're in a smooth stretch doesn't mean we're out of it yet, and so on. Must have been every 10-20 minutes. She just would not stop talking; while her voice was fine in person, over the PA it sounded like a cheese grater taken to my inner ear. I barely slept that flight; it was miserable."
Cons: "My flight had a two hour delay"
Cons: "No options for vegetarians when food was handed out. I asked if they had the food for purchase and they said no on a 2+hour flight."
Pros: "Nice and easy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Couldn't find any way to input my TSA Pre-Check number so ended up standing in the long line... For that reason alone, I won't buy through Kayak again"
Pros: "check in at ohare was super easy. Also no security line. Friendly Staff."
Cons: "After push back we waited for about half an hour before we moved to the runway."
Pros: "Loved the fact they had shows that you could watch through your phone just connect with their internet, they were very nice and fast at giving drinks."
Cons: "Plane was not the most comfortable, and super cold (could also be the fact I forgot my jacket and was wearing tank top) you have to download app to watch movies before actually watching them on plane. There's no way you can download app in airplane."
Cons: "The ice falling from the AC was so annoying. It kept falling on my skin and it was jarring and uncomfortable. I won't be using Alaska airlines again until you get that resolved."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Only 1 flight attendant in first class for 16 passengers, as the other one disappeared most of the time, and when asked for help she actually refused, saying she was only helping coach class! Dinner service took almost 3 hours. Never asked if we wanted wine or another drink with dinner."
Cons: "The air hostess made a big deal about using the restrooms on the front side of the plane by the cockpit even though she knew the food trolley was blocking the way to the restrooms on the rear end. They even made announcements about not standing in queue for the restrooms (note- there was no queue, I was waiting for my mother to find her back to the seat). Less than average hospitality."
Pros: "We were on our way to a bachlorette party and the crew was really fun and adding to the whole experience."
Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."
Pros: "Online wifi"
Cons: "They ran out of hot meals for purchase one row ahead of me"
Pros: "Three stars is an average service. Five stars should only be expected when circumstances bring the above and beyond out of CSRs. I had no issues, the flight was pleasant, the flight attendants and pilots behaved in expected manners. Perfectly normal flight - 3 stars."
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: "Quick boarding and exiting of the plain. Kind staff."
Cons: "It cost way too much for the internet and their is no other source of entertainment movie or music on plane that you have to purchase the internet or be board."
Pros: "It was a cheap flight and the service was better than I've learned to expect from airlines that fly into Mexico. It may be I'm seeing things that are not there, but I believe most airlines currently traveling into Mexico treat their passengers like cattle. I rank Alaska on the positive high end of this, but it could do better."
Cons: "passengers were treated like cattle."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for over two hours and we didn't receive any type of notification. We got to the airport and then we were told. If we had known we wouldn't have come to the airport, returned our car…. We would have spent that time in Maui. Very bad ending to our trip. Plus, they didn't issue any type a voucher or refund for that. We are very disappointed."
Pros: "The sites were great the flight was good departed on time and arrived on time mostly all the crew was nice"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses in first class was a little rude to some of the people on the flight. Ex. (the person next to me asked for a water in first class and was given a glass of water and told that's all we have) it was said in a really rude way and almost thrown at him not cool Ex. ( old couple was in need to use the restroom and asked for some assistance and she was really rude to them cause they needed here help to get up. again not cool if she was not having a good day then she should not have came in to work."
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: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "There were technical problems with the plane. We were scheduled to leave Portland at 11am and the flight was delayed until 3:45pm once it was determined that the plane was not repairable and we were forced to wait for another plane flying in from So Cal. There wasn't sufficient communication between the airport staff and passengers regarding the status of our flight and attempt 's to repair the plane. It was beyond disconcerting. Needless to say, it was not an enjoyable experience enjoyable experience. I live in California and did not arrive home until 7:30pm that day."
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."
Cons: "Having to walk up 3 flights of stairs from the plane to the arrival terminal."
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: "We have been traveling to Hawaii and especially Kauai for years. We love the fact that we don't have to fly into Honolulu and transfer to the Inter-Island Terminal with Alaska. This saves a lot of time and there is a lot less hassle. We upgraded to Preferred Seats which are in the Exit Rows and with the extra leg room, it is really nice especially if you have someone in the window seat. We don't eat anything on the plane because we usually head to our favorite restaurant once we land."
Cons: "The only thing I don't like is that the seats are not as padded as they use to be. With a 4-1/2 hr. flight, they become really hard. I am planning on taking a seat cushion with me the next time I fly."
Pros: "Plenty leg room"
Cons: "I paid $25 to get an earlier flight. Plane was brought back due to pressure failure. Changing aircraft. Would like my money back for the inconvenience of leaving later and having relatives wait in San Jose. Please let me know. Thanks"
Pros: "Snacks are good and crew is very friendly. Kept us up to date with arrival times. Would fly again with Alaska"
Cons: "With delta, the movies are free. Didn't like that I had to pay for certain entertainment on Gogo"
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."
Pros: "Boarding was good. Staff friendly."
Cons: "No electronics charging outlets. Limited food."
Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "Really felt happy on time touch down nice journey with delta"
Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"
Cons: "Terrible delays"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cabin was way too hot despite complaining multiple times. Wi-Fi didn’t work the whole flight. The entertainment system was down. Seats uncomfortable. Inept crew. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
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: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Cons: "No delays. And have the terminal bridge in working order"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, capt. had smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Late gate change threw me for a loop. Had dinner with some friends in terminal before they caught a different flight. Walked to my gate only to find flight had changed to a different terminal and gate. Ended up fine because there was a delay with the lane switch, but made me a little anxious."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
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."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
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 movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
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: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient."
Cons: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient. Unfortunately, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get into our gate because another plane was there, so we arrived late. Not DELTA's fault."
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "We took off and landed early. The crew was wonderful and the snacks were exactly what I needed."
Cons: "We landed early and were stuck waiting on the plane for an hour and fifteen minutes for a gate to open."
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Nice folks. Courteous and professional"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat and ended up next to a bulkhead with no window. I can get claustrophobic so concerning and Frustrating! Also, unlike the trip to Minneapolis where the Wi-Fi worked great the Wi-Fi was awful on the return trip and made watching a movie challenging."
Pros: "Most of the crew was very friendly. Good selection of entertainment options and decent food and beverage options."
Cons: "I had three short interactions with one of the female flight attendants who never made eye contact. The movie service frequently froze for 30-60 seconds at a time."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Love the local beer."
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: "Crew and gate staff very helpful (see below)."
Cons: "I needed wheelchair assist at both ends. In each case I was waiting over 30 min. At the departure end there was a danger of missing the flight so one of the gate staff wheeled me, Amina was amazing. Another long wait at SFO. I spent almost as much time waiting for wheelchairs as I did on the flight!"
Pros: "Seats on Sun country are ok but I don’t expect much for the relatively inexpensive flight! Crew were very efficient, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Movie options"
Pros: "Flight attendant Susan was wonderful. Very friendly, professional, and helpful."
Pros: "Convenient to go thru intl security / boarding area"
Cons: "No on board Wi-Fi or entertainment , but. That is fine go short flight, I love sun country out of SFO"
Pros: "Exceptional price on a direct PDX-SFO flight at $66 roundtrip. USB outlets at all seats I could see. Looked to have a good selection of in-flight entertainment available to stream to personal devices (phones, tablets, etc) Staff were low-key."
Cons: "Basic fare: no reserved seats, only personal item. Like United (but not Alaska/Delta) require desk check-in at airport!! No online check-in/mobile boarding pass, and *limited agent hours* Lame. Buy-up reserved seat (fee) Stupid policy for passengers, extra work for staff."
Cons: "More leg room, wider seats."
Cons: "They lost my bag!"
Cons: "The lady checking me in said I could pay $40.00 for carry on or $25.00 to check my carry on luggage. This did not happen in SFO. The upper bins were somewhat empty and the plane wasn’t full. I don’t understand why it was different on my way home. Since I had to check my carry on, I missed the airporter by five minutes and had to wait over an hour."
Pros: "Quick entry. One flight attendant was very friendly."
Cons: "First class upgrade was suspect. Seats were all visibly torn. Very busy ailes to bathrooms for first class. One flight attendant was a bit rude. Other attendant was very nice. But didn’t feel upgrade was at all worth the money. Also had to try three times online and twice in person for upgrade."
Cons: "We were fully boarded and then were delayed 1 hour without any explanation. They also had poor in flight service and very uncomfortable seats. No leg room at all and if the person put their seat back the 5 degrees it could move, there was no way to be comfortable because the seat in front presses against my knees."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly enough. No carryon barggage fee, no checked baggage fee."
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly; however, they were never able to tell us which gate we were landing in. We ended up barely making our connection after the final call for boarding with the 45 minute delay from de-icing in MSP. It would have been nice to know the gate number before getting off the flight so that we knew where to go in the terminal. A complimentary snack or breakfast wasn't provided on the 4 hour flight, and they only came through once with the beverage service."
Pros: "The price of the tickets were great. They definitely "nickel and dime" but it was expected given they seem to be a budget airline. The crew at the terminal were nice and professional."
Cons: "Every flight was slow in taking off (delays aside). The crew on the plane never smiled and seemed annoyed to be serving us. It was unbearably hot on the flight for some reason and the air wasn't working very well."
Pros: "The plane was not full so seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Check in line was really long. But luckily the terminal was small so I still made it to my flight on time."
Pros: "No communication"
Cons: "Our flight was moved to three different gates and delayed, incrementally, by over 4 hours, without even an overhead announcement/update. I realize that while frustrating, delays are inevitable, but communication can go along way! Return flight was only delayed about 1.5 hrs."
Pros: "Same issues in JFK and sfo"
Cons: "Same issues"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Very good basic service."
Cons: "Jimmy John’s sandwich"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. No bags got lost. Were happy with having our carry on luggage checked for free."
Cons: "Got hungry mid-flight (4hr trip). Would have purchased food but chose not to because options were poor and expensive."
Pros: "Easy boarding process, complimentary bag check (on full flights), multiple direct flight options available, affordable prices for round trip or one-way flights."
Cons: "Food/snacks are only available for purchase."
Cons: "My flight was canceled for unknown reasons."
Pros: "Didn't happen"
Cons: "Didn't happen"
Pros: "Making the connection was super easy since was very close to arriving gate. On time and had an aisle seat even tho booked last minute and couldn't pick myself"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "Everything was very simple. All employees were great"
Cons: "I missed the captain announcing where we are flying over once in awhile"
Pros: "Didn't have any food. All was well, and glad to have discovered sun country."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline."
Cons: "volume on recorded announcement was too high but overall, an excellent experience!"
Pros: "friendly crew, but hard to understand Captian"
Cons: "seats are very uncomfortable - hard & no lumbar support"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour from when we landed until we got our bags."
Pros: "A surprisingly good cheese burger ($5),cheerful crew, and on-time departure and arrival. Given my low expectations for American air travel, I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "As always, the seats are too small, the overheads too full, and the staff a bit harried. I really shouldn't fault the airline for any of that."
Pros: "It was good to break up coast to coast trip with a stop in Minneapolis, and 2nd leg both had fewer passengers, which equaled more comfort in coach."
Cons: "When I checked in on the internet, there were no economy seats available. I had to pay $15 for a "preferred" seat, which was an aisle seat on row 7, near the front of the economy section. I was told by an employee that the only economy seats were the middle seats, that aisle and window seats were preferred seats. I was told the plane was full and they could not change my "preferred" seat although I did see empty seats on the plane after takeoff. Also bathroom facilities were poor - only two in the back for the entire economy seating. And the aisles were narrow."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew and on time departure and arrival during busy holiday travel time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Website to check in said no sears left except seats where had to pay additional $15-25 so had to get boarding pass at airport...at airport magically got seats that were showing as not available? Is this a scam to get people to pay more $?"
Cons: "Upon arrival, we had to wait about 30 minutes waiting for a gate to be open so that we could deplane."
Pros: "had to sit in the row before exit row so my seat didn't recline, which was uncomfortable."
Pros: "cheap price. thats what's most important, right!?"
Cons: "pay for food only. make sure you bring some of your own snacks ok!? i did :D also the takeoff was late, but i mean it was because of the weather, not much the airline could do about that..."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and organize in boarding ."
Cons: "None, but actually could not so rating for food and entertainment, as this actually n/a"
Pros: "I like how the flight attendants came around twice to offer us drinks."
Cons: "There was an issue checking in online. I couldn't reserve my seats on the plane at home (I tried twice; once the day before my flight and on the way to the airport), and so I had to take extra time to go to the check in counter at the airport to get my boarding pass."
Pros: "Not too uncomfortable."
Cons: "They censor their films. We watched two comedies over our two flights, and both were obviously edited for content and language. Why? We paid to watch these and were never made aware we were not seeing the full film. I'll avoid this airline in the future because of this."
Pros: "Last minute trip to MN and back to Bay Area. Went for a funeral. Flew Sun country for the first time both ways. Best experience I've/we've had flying in a while. Thank you. We'll be back - especially if y'all go to the east coast."
Pros: "For only $15 more I upgraded to a seat with more space and was very comfortable. With the baggage fee only $20 (not $25 like other airlines), I was very happy with the affordable upgrade."
Cons: "Rude. Pushy. Bad even for a red-eye."
Pros: "Never flown Sun Country before and was impressed by the crew's efficiency and demeanor."
Cons: "Seats don't go back and you have to pay for the use of a movie entertainment center."
Pros: "Drinks were offered twice."
Cons: "No complimentary peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "The computers went down the day before the flight and the phones said they were too busy try later. But the personal service at the airport was outstanding, which completely made up for the glitch. And the crew were extra friendly."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL."
Cons: "THE SEATS SEEM BROKEN- THE PAD SLIDES AROUND. IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THAT CRAPY WIRE THAT HOLDS THE SEAT BACK POCKET CLOSED? IT HITS US TALL GUYS IN THE KNEES AND IS A TRUE DETRACTION EVERY TIME. THE SEAT PAD WAS SOOOO FLAT- NO CUSHION LEFT."
Pros: "The general attitude of the flight crew was great. Warm and kind, fun and full of smiles."
Cons: "The picnic pack was the only thing I could eat and was told it was no longer an option but still on the menu. Ended up not getting anything and was not thrilled by it."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Pretty efficient for a completely full flight."
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat 2L Rocked back-and-forth every time person in seat 1L moved. This was a day flight from Chicago to London so I wasn’t sleeping. I could see if you were sleeping and had to deal with all the seat movement it would not be ideal."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Great ! Next time please confirm seats before boarding"
Cons: "A toilet had no water. The internet was not working for the whole flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 3 hrs! As a result I missed work!"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "I was bumped off the flight due to weight restriction and moved to a flight 6 hours later, it only took me 4 hours to rent a car and drive home. I am a 210 lb 6ft tall male. I was not the reason for the plane being over weight, I was there before boarding took place they didn't ask and I didn't fly."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."
Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"
Pros: "American Airlines Crew, friendly and personable"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Pros: "Easy boarding crew were friendly food was hot"
Cons: "Seating was a pain to try and get 2 seats together even though I booked it months in advance very noisy rude people couldn't sleep on a supposed overnight am exhausted"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."
Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."
Cons: "I got tranafered to 4 different gates aand my flight was delayed for 3 hrs with no explaination and the staff didn't try to help"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I was traveling today with my daughter, who is 6 months pregnant, my 3 1/2 & 18 month old grandsons, my husband & son-in law on an international flight from Chicago to Manchester. I was very disappointed a 757 was used for an international flight! No attempt was made by staff to accomodate our family with a extra seat for the infant, even though there were a large number of rows with empty middle seats (4 of which were directly behind them!) The 1st indication of the beginning of the NIGHTMARE was when the plane arrived in Chicago and overshot the gate, this caused almost an hour delay! (We heard our crew saying "oops" while looking out the window at the plane arriving & then again when they were discussing it would have been faster if the plane had used a different method to get to the gate again.) This was then followed by a mechanical problem with a frozen water valve, requiring us to be de-iced x2! Then we started to taxi out and again had to return because of a hydraulic problem that required repair. I think we were delayed almost 3.5 hours. The crew did bring a round of water during the onground delays, and offered free drinks later in the flight. The icing on the cake was not getting the stroller back at the gate because there were no baggage handlers. I can't tell you how much FUN that was trying to corral a toddler & 3yr old with all our carry-on bags while getting thru customs! Did I mention in our haste to get off that plane we overlooked my daughter's winter maternity coat in the overhead! May be time to switch to the Friendlier Skies of United for our UK travel!"
Pros: "Loved having 2 empty seats next to me so I could stretch out after a very long day of travel."
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable in any position."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."
Pros: "The entertainment was good. Lots of choices. Food was about what I would expect for airline food."
Cons: "The seats were terrible. I don't know what it was about them, but I've never had a more uncomfortable flight. My husband had leg cramps for much of the flight and couldn't get comfortable. The rest of the flight was fine, but the uncomfortable seats were a huge minus. We'll probably try to avoid 787s from now on. The window-darkening system was annoying. They darkened the windows when it was dark outside and they darkened the cabin, so we couldn't look out the window. It was dark outside--why the need to darken the windows?? My husband requests window seats so he can look out the window."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from start to finish. On time departure. We did have to wait for a gate to open up in San Jose. It was a completely full flight."
Cons: "No gate being available upon an on time arrival."
Pros: "The crew, the movies, and window seat"
Cons: "Didn't like how tight the flight was. Way too compact and 3 seats near window seats makes it so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Pros: "The American Airlines crews and people manning the desk erred very professional. Yes, this particular flight was conducted by American for Iberia under a share code. So whatever horror stories you have heard of about European Iberia flights, the one I took was fine. But the airline's crew is being let down."
Cons: "In Chicago, our flight was delayed at least three hours for a "GPS update." The crews said the software wasn't even handshaking. Okay. But I have a feeling this is common, and wish the airline would figure out a way to conduct updates, safely, without impacting everyone's schedule. My wife flew through same connection on the same airline a week later. And her flight was canceled. Maybe for the same issue? Unsure. It could have been a a bad luck streak."
Pros: "It was on time. Crew were very good."
Cons: "Plane seemed very dated. No individual entertainment No USB chargers Not much space"
Cons: "The airline "randomly" selected me for extra security. Even though I have TSA pre-check I was jostled around, sent to multiple security lines without any reasoning and the local Chicago TSA and airport staff didn't seem to know what to do. Once it was figured out I was subjected to what was essentially a cavity search. Again I HAVE TSA-pre-check but apparently that means nothing if an airline flags you. It was an extremely upsetting experience but you were in a situation of either agree to the invasive search or get stranded over 1000 miles from home. I will NEVER fly Iberia again after a cancelled flight and being stranded in the wrong country on the way to my vacation and the horrible security experience on the way back. I seriously may never go to Chicago either after seeing the complete lack of organization and traumatizing personal invasion. I fly a lot for work and have never had such a horrible experience. I would really like to know how many terrorists are caught with these invasive searches and would love to know the justification for sticking your hands inside someone's pants and grabbing their privates after they have already gone through a metal detector AND the body scanner. Especially for someone who has already passed a federal background check to obtain pre-check status. Absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They did not compromise when I couldn't go, I understand no refund but I cancelled a few days after,"
Pros: "Seats quite comfortable. Crew ok."
Cons: "Pitiful food offering and no entertainment at all when on previous 1.5 hour AA flight choice of movies."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew were very nice. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. Even unedited movies!! Great."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for a half hour before it was marked as "delayed" and then it was delayed another half hour. If I had known it was going to be an hour late I would've been able to eat a proper dinner. They seemed to be out of every normal drink on the drink cart."
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Pros: "Eventually we made it"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because a door wasn't working (old). Business class entertainment was a tablet that was collected an hour before we landed. Food was very bland."
Pros: "I sat next to a friend I haven't seen in almost a year"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
