Cons: "Nothing."

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

Pros: "We especially liked the in flight movies which you could rent on a tablet like device similar in size to an iPad. Also, we appreciate airlines that still board the plane by row starting in the rear. That is the most sensible way to board a plane. Also, I had plenty of legroom while seated."

Cons: "We were told it would take 5 minutes to deplane, fix the problem and reboard when it actually took an hour"

Pros: "Great Flight Attendants"
Cons: "No light snack with beverage. Was told company forgot to put on plane. Could also be we were in last row of plane and may have run out. Last row of plane was very cramped. I was in middle. Attendant felt bad enough did not charge me for the glass of wine I ordered."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Pros: "The flight attendants made quite a few passes through to make sure everyone had drinks."

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: "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: "Very accommodating staff"

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Plenty of leg room. Departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Can't think of anything."

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

Pros: "Flight was 30min faster than we expect, awesome :) we arrived 30min earlier :) she was the most beautiful pilot i ever saw. ."
Cons: "Everything was just fine. ."

Pros: "That everything was in time. No delays."

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: "They needed to run the air conditioning more during boarding. It was hot & smelly."

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"

Cons: "The food can be better."

Pros: "Ride was great"
Cons: "Had to pay for earphone"

Cons: "The Black guy service is not good"

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."

Cons: "No hot beverages available."

Cons: "My Satellite XM radio didn’t seem to be working."

Pros: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Cons: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"

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: "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: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"

Pros: "Jeff was our flight attendant in first class. He is an excellent flight attendant. He has an amazing attitude and his manner made us feel as if we had been friends with him for years."
Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."

Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."

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

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "Over crowded. Scaled down the aisle to add extra seats. I weigh 100lbs. and am 5'2". My knees were crammed into seat in front of me. No beverage or food service and no discount for that."
Cons: "More worried about carry on luggage than customer experience."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time. Crew was very good"

Pros: "The flight got delayed and than it was also late"
Cons: "Be on time"

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: "The trip was as to be expected. The low cost was the absolute best thing about this trip. If the cost is going to be that affordable, I will definitely take more trips with sun country and recommend it to my friends and family."
Cons: "The only issue w/the flight was that we sat on the tarmac for about as long as the flight took. There was something going on at the gate we were to arrive at, and that left us on the tarmac for about 45 minutes or so. Then there wasn’t very good air flow. Should’ve had an alternate gate."

Pros: "it was a direct flight"
Cons: "allowing to check bags in late. didn’t allow us to & made us take our bags thru TSA. We told them that we had liquids in there & would need to check them in at the kiosk bc tsa would throw them away. They said “it’s okay, just let tsa know we said it was ok” tsa threw our stuff away & lost a lot of"

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."

Pros: "Nothing. I was not allowed to board because I was 5 minutes late for checkin and was not allowed to check in ahead of time online. I had a ticket. The plane was right on the other side of security. I had plenty of time to catch my flight if I'd had a boarding pass. Instead I had to buy a new ticket."
Cons: "Let me check in ahead of time online. Also, make it abundantly clear on the ticket and elsewhere that if I check in at the airport it has to be at least 45 minutes before departure."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Comfort"

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: "Check in was easy and quick"
Cons: "Plane could have been cleaner. Price is ok, but not as good as it seems once you add luggage."

Cons: "I missed the flight because they did not allow online check in. The check in closed 45 min before the flight and I got to the airport 35 min before the flight because my first flight at LGA was cancelled and I had to spend $250 to uber yo EWR. They charged me $200 and only refunded me vouchers"

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."

Cons: "We were unable to check in with SunCountry .. very frustrating!"

Cons: "TV and music would be nice."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "I didn’t realize I had to pay for a carry on"

Pros: "The crew was absolutely wonderful And seat was the most comfortable ever"

Pros: "The upgraded seats were worth it."
Cons: "Everything else. Had me listen as wrong gender. Had to pay extra to fix it. Couldn’t get checked in early. Spent 30 minutes with the agent to get a ticket, went to gate and was told I need to show a receipt because they don’t have record of me paying for the seat. Will not fly sun country again"

Pros: "Crew friendly, enough leg space"
Cons: "Internet access"

Cons: "No updates and it was delayed an hour then took a bus to the aircraft that was about 100 degrees while the driver texted. Terrible would never fly again on sun country"

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: "Hidden cost. Late flight. Had to take bus to the plane"

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: "No WiFi"

Pros: "I did not fly to Las Vegas... the ticket went unused."

Pros: "Flight and ticket staff very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "We ran into a combination of traffic, parking, and other issues that drove us to arrive at our check-in at 7pm for a 7:40pm flight. We were not able to check-in given the 45 min rule. NO WHERE in our email did it say there was this rule nor were we prompted or told to check-in prior to our flight online. There's no suncountry app for check-in that we could find (only a visa one). We booked through priceline.The flight hadn't even started boarding and we were not allowed to check-in. We were re-booked on a flight that left two hours later, but that flight was delayed 3 hours. The whole thing essentially took one full night of paid hotel and fun in Vegas away costing us over $200 just in hotel plus we spent an extra 5 hours in an airport that didn't have a bar open past 9pm."

Pros: "Friendly gate staff Friendly flight attendants Seats bigger than Spirit Airline's Just $15 for an upgraded 6th row window seat Accepted my carry-on bag free, without measuring the the wheels as part of it's measurement. Note: Spirit always accepted this same carry-on for many flights over the years, but didn't on this same trip to my location. ( This Sun Country trip was on the return flight. )"
Cons: "Really nothing"

Pros: "We’re coach feels like your in first class"
Cons: "The staff are the best , the accommodations are superb"

Pros: "Generous with size of carry on. Staff pleasant"
Cons: "Would like a small snack included"

Pros: "Flight there&home had a very nice young man/lady get me set up with ticket and boarding pass"
Cons: "Getting searched like a criminal on the way there. Young lady gave me the fast lane home. They treated me like a human being"

Cons: "Boarding was awful - they were all over the place! Board from the back - then the front! Lots of chaos!! awful experience! And seriously - no peanuts or snacks for free? Ugh!"

Pros: "I went from Minneapolis to Vegas in 3 hours which is way better than a 24 hour drive."
Cons: "No snacks."

Pros: "Good service!!!"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "seating is a little cramped."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant. Flights were on time with no delays."

Pros: "The crew was great--very pleasant and attentive. Flight was smooth with an easy landing."
Cons: "At the Sun Country desk in Minneapolis they told me they couldn't check my bag all the way through to San Francisco because they didn't have an arrangement with Virgin America. I learned in Las Vegas after claiming injury checking my bag that they do have an arrangement, and that agent just didn't know about it. Kayak should never have allowed me to book a ticket where I had to re-check my bag and go through security again without a big warning, so I'm unhappy about that. Additionally, it seems like Sun Country needs to get his ducks in order regarding baggage agreements. The change in Las Vegas was stressful and involved switching terminals as well – not ideal."

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Waiting for 2 hours for them to fix a part. And being Late"

Pros: "Good price on tickets"
Cons: "Wish I could have picked my seats after I made my reservations I had to go to sun countries website and figure out how to pick my seats"

Pros: "Not going to say this will happen to every soldier but when they started boarding first class passengers,they also stayed boarding anybody in the military. I went up and after some confusion,they upgraded me to first class. I didn't even ask for anything. It was amazing!"
