The price is good, and it is on time. I didn't got kicked out.

The baggage fee shows on the app is not exactly correct. I paid more for my baggages when I am doing check-in.

The website was really annoying - it wouldn't let me check in or pay for my baggage. Then when I called it took over an hour for someone to answer the phone. I was told if a passenger did not fly both ends of a round trip flight, we would need to pay a $50 cancellation fee for the privilege of not using the ticket we had already paid for. This is also the first airline I have flown that charges for carry ons and also charges for seat assignments during online checkin! That's right, I could have paid an extra $6 to select a middle seat in the back of the airplane! Except the online checkin system kept crashing so I never checked in online anyways. And finally the food options were horrible, the worst I have ever seen. I was really hungry, so I bought one of their snack packs (after the person at the counter assured me there would be sandwiches), and the snack pack was disgusting, even by airplane food standards. I'd prefer flying Spirit Air - at least they are up front about nickel-and-diming their customers. I'll do my best to avoid flying sun country again.

Quick boarding. Direct flight.

Super cramped seating. Definitely had a child’s feet all over my seat the entire flight. Flight attendant seemed super annoyed to be there. Guess I should have read that you have to pay for a carryon or pay to check your bag. Which is actually odd because it costs less to check your bag than have it with you.

I made it home.

We sat on the tarmac for over two hours in temps of 90 degrees. Requested water and fight attendent Bridgette told me she was busy and trying to manage everything. After 1st class got offered their third round of drinks and food, my son attempted to get flight attendant Ed's attention but he refused to acknowledge him. He went to Bridgette who gave water with a hair in it. The crew was unpleasant and did not greet or say good bye. So sad.

Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid...

Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade.

There was a delay from Charlotte to Dallas but not too much so it was fine. Once we arrived in Dallas, however, it took an absorbent amount of time for the crew to open the door. On top of that, the skyline in Dallas was broken down and it caused me to miss my flight completely. I’m a student so I don’t have much money so I had to “sleep” in the airport because I couldn’t get a hotel voucher due to the fact that I missed my flight due to the airport and not the airline itself. My next flight is tomorrow morning but now takes away time from an incredibly busy and tight schedule that I was on. Not happy at all with the Dallas airport.

Actually pushed back from gate on time in Philadelphia. Took about 25 minutes from then til take off. Landed only a few minutes behind schedule. Crew was pleasant. Food was okay.

It was a Finnair flight but operated by American Airlines. I booked through Justfly.com and paid extra for what I thought were our seats. Don’t pay Justfly for seating choice as the operating airline can switch your seats. Online checkin was difficult as I tried Finnair first with no luck, then got somewhere with American. Seats were not very comfortable but I guess that’s what you get in economy.

Actually pushed back from gate on time in Philadelphia. Took about 25 minutes from then til take off. Landed only a few minutes behind schedule. Crew was pleasant. Food was okay.

It was a Finnair flight but operated by American Airlines. I booked through Justfly.com and paid extra for what I thought were our seats. Don’t pay Justfly for seating choice as the operating airline can switch your seats. Online checkin was difficult as I tried Finnair first with no luck, then got somewhere with American. Seats were not very comfortable but I guess that’s what you get in economy.

Excellent 8.6

A cheap option to upgrade to 1st was offered that ended up being a net 0 cost upgrade for me so I took it. Comfortable on an old (but oh so nice) aircraft.

Arrived 30 minutes early to the airport but then had to sit at a remote pad so that we ended up being 5 minutes late to the gate. A short transfer was made even more difficult, and a massive waste if time and fuel sitting and waiting. Figure out your gates early and better, and move around if needed. At the very least, bring up some stairs and buses to get passengers to the terminal and then tow the aircraft in when you have a gate available.

Poor entertainment - food not very good. Didn’t look as though there was concern regarding recycling plastics and metal. We should all be aware of the importance, especially in the airline industry who handle so much recyclable materials.

Quick boarding. Direct flight.

Super cramped seating. Definitely had a child’s feet all over my seat the entire flight. Flight attendant seemed super annoyed to be there. Guess I should have read that you have to pay for a carryon or pay to check your bag. Which is actually odd because it costs less to check your bag than have it with you.

Everything was easy.

All the extra charges for luggage and seating. Total rip off! Not flying with Sun Coutry next trip. Very disappointed.

I made it home.

We sat on the tarmac for over two hours in temps of 90 degrees. Requested water and fight attendent Bridgette told me she was busy and trying to manage everything. After 1st class got offered their third round of drinks and food, my son attempted to get flight attendant Ed's attention but he refused to acknowledge him. He went to Bridgette who gave water with a hair in it. The crew was unpleasant and did not greet or say good bye. So sad.

The price

They switched my seat last minute because the accidentally charged me for bags that didn’t get checked and had to re-check me in. The woman in the seat in front of me was practically sitting in my lap, which I couldn’t help unless someone surgically removed part of my legs. My knees were smashed against her recliner seat for the full three hour flight. I was moved from a window seat mid cabin to a seat surrounded by children under the age of six. No chance at rest. Made me lug bagged to oversized drop off only to be told that my gear wasn’t actually oversized and I had to lug it all back and stand in line for bag drop off again. This was a bad time.

Going through security. Tthe line was.long but moving rather swiftly.

Sun Country...never again. First I was supposed to get an eticket which I never got NO KIOSK! I had to get on a line for my boarding pass only to learn that I had to pay extra for my carry-on. It only weighed 16 lbs. I get on the plane...NO SCREENS. I bought my headphones this time ready to watch a movie. Ooh and snacks are not free. You get your choice of water, juice, coffee, soda, or tea for free. Nothing like my last trip with a DIFFERENT airline which I enjoyed.

The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule

We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4.

Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid...

Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
