Cons: "Flight was hot"

Cons: "Would have appreciated a heads up about needing to shuttle to the remote parked aircraft at the Seattle airport. The process itself was fine but everyone was just confused on what was happening and it’s always hard to hear the announcements via PA"

Pros: "Flight from New Orleans to Seattle was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "Since Alaska Air used an aircraft from Seattle to return to Seattle, mechanical issues created a seven-hour delay in departure. Alaska expected us to remain at the gate, even though they had no intention of replacing the aircraft that would take 5 hours to arrive ONCE it eventually left Seattle. Upon arrival in Seattle, we were told we could only continue to Anchorage by splitting up, each of us taking a different flight. I checked with gate agent because had received notification of ONE of my three bags being on the carousel at Seattle, rather than going to Anchorage. She assured me all three bags were going to Anchorage. Arriving there 19 hours after our appearance at New Orleans Airport, we found one of our bags had indeed been left in Seattle. 8 hours later, still no bag or call. Good thing there are a dozen Seattle to Anchorage flights per day."

Pros: "Wide seats and head support."

My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."

Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches.

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "- lack of power plugs - could be cleaner Both perhaps more a function of the dated aircraft."

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."

Cons: "Unexpected traffic from an accident delayed arrival and airport, that coupled with long lines made for time tight, girl in front of me at security was also going to my flight so I wasn't too panicked and tad kept telling us it was going to be ok and we'd make it but they pulled me aside to pay me down at security then my companion ran on ahead, they let her on the plane and then shut the door right as I was running up. Then the last was extremely rude to me and told me it was my fault and everyone else made it on time so why couldn't I, them when the second gate agent was going to put me on the new flight the ride lady told her to put me as standby, the agent inquired as to why and said there were open seats, she said do it, standby. And then smirked at me like she'd put me in my place. I was speechless, never delt with suncountry employee who was rude. Really disappointed with this experience"

Pros: "Plane staff was friendly, onboard entertainment options were good and the fare was reasonable."

I told them about my situation that I was late because I was in a funeral, and they didn't really care about it. Customer service was not really nice to me even though when I got there not to late.

Cons: "I'm stuck in this huge airport because the connection time between Mexico City and my next flight to Leon was vastly underestimated. In Vancouver I was assured that one and a half hours would be sufficient but when I saw the line through immigration I realized what a joke that was. That process alone took well over two hours, followed by another hour to pick up my bag, find the correct spot to drop it off again and then re-enter the boarding area. Meanwhile, the shuttle I arranged to pick me up in Leon have one and gone. So, here I sit, exhausted, frustrated and weary, waiting for the next flight, and not knowing how I will get to my destination in the dark hours of the night. I could do with back rub and a shoulder to cry on."

Cons: "seats are very cramped"

Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nisy airplane and hard seats."

Pros: "Availability of WiFi"

Pros: "Airplane food was good"
Cons: "I was in the air 24hr, the trip was as good as it gets."

Pros: "Liked the flight. Very nice crew."

Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."

Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"

Cons: "I didn't have enough time and had to rush to get to me connecting flight. It scared me that I might not make it to the terminal and gate in time. thanks!!"

Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."

Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."

Pros: "Everyone was very helpful."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the plane​approximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."

Pros: "Service, attitude, great hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever."
Cons: "Fact that I have to fly different airlines in the future"

Cons: "I am million miler in Korean air. It's a seven star airlines"

Pros: "We made it home."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX."

Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."

Pros: "Top notch airline - staff is personable & comfortable seating"

Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"

Cons: "No entertainment. There wasn't even a drop down screen for a movie."

Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "That I paid for luggage when most people waited until they were told while boarding so they checked the baggage for free even though it was obviously too large. Maybe it should be checked closer when checking in before going through security."

Pros: "Left on time arrived on time"
Cons: "Air conditioning didn't work on Charlotte to ft wayne leg."

Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"

Cons: "I purchased a round trip ticket to Miami for my infant son and I to accompany my wife on her business trip. First off, there was a 2.5 hour delay. The flight was overbooked. The lady at the ticket counter would not switch my seat to be seated next to my wife and 4 month old infant. Luckily the gentleman beside her was willing to switch seats so that she could comfortably breast feed our son. My checked luggage was severely damaged. The side of the luggage was caved in and one wheel was completely ripped off while the other was partially damaged. A cart had to be rented in order to transport the broken suitcase through the airport to the rental car service area where we picked up our car. The infant car seat belonging to a $180 traveling system was damaged and is missing pieces that secure the broken canopy. We were rudely advised by a staff member to file a report as she pointed in the general directional of a line a mile long. We have been advised by the manufacturing company to discontinue the use of this car seat because it is no longer considered safe for the baby to travel in. Should we ever be involved in an accident, the car seat would likely fail to ensure the baby's safety due to the mishandling by American Airline employees. Unfortunately since the flight was ridiculously delayed and my son was ill, we were unable to file the report. My wife has since contacted American Airlines via telephone and intends to write them a formal written complaint."

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "The flight did not have enough immigration forms for all the guests. The wifi did not work. The seats were uncomfortable and small. The plane emitted a deafening high-pitched whistle for about 10 minutes at a certain altitude. The plane wreaked of nauseating jet fuel as we waiting on the Tarmac. The flight crew at the gate was rude and inattentive."
