Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight attendants were really great and nice."
Cons: "That I’m still stuck on this damn plane and we landed 30 minutes ago."
Pros: "The flight took the blink of an eye."
Cons: "I would have liked to have been woken for the food dispersal and being over 6 feet O cannot say enough about adequate leg room or lack thereof."
Cons: "The landing at SFO was very hard and a couple of was made very scared startled sounds!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was late in arriving and we were hard pressed to make our connecting flight. A stewardess made an announcement requesting everyone without a connecting flight remain seated until those of us with tight schedules got off. Most everyone was courteous and waited. Thus we, and many others, were able to make our connecting flight. We really appreciated the assistance."
Pros: "The complimentary food the crew gave us."
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "Crew were fairly good however it was probably due to sitting by the captains significant other. First time flying alaska, probably will again due to them having more free stuff then United."
Cons: "Drinks didn't come by very often, felt like the crew were sucking up to the SO of the captain and ignoring me and my fiance."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for 1.5 hours prior to departure because the plane was too light. This should be something that is determined prior to boarding the plane."
Pros: "Clean new planes. Good service."
Cons: "The idea for tablets as in-flight entertainment is one that I hope does not gain too much traction."
Pros: "The in flight cookies were deliscious"
Cons: "I arrived to my gate about a half hour before boarding was set to start. An employee greeting me recommended I use the restroom because the gate was down an elevator and in a portion of the airport that did not have accessible restrooms or food options. She cautioned against returning late later than ten minutes before boarding. I returned about ten minutes before the scheduled boarding, only to be told there would be a delay, which wouldn't be an issue except that it took over an hour and sounded like a standard, foreseeable safety process due to the plane being out of the country prior to our flight. Then we were shuttled to the plane on a frigid bus, which at one point stopped so suddenly several passengers and baggages were sent to the floor. And then, after finally taking off, the in flight wifi did not work. After landing in Portland, there was a 45 minute delay because "a vehicle is parked in our gate." Ultimately, we flew safe and sound, but the discomfort caused by the cold bus transports, poor bus driving, foreseeable delays, and a parked vehicle was really unacceptable. After this experience, it will be hard to choose Alaska Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Better vegan snacks available for purchase would be great."
Pros: "Same as before."
Cons: "We had to take a bus to our airplane. It took off a full hour late and it seemed mostly due to horrendously slow gate operations"
Cons: "They cancelled my original flight"
Pros: "The service was fine."
Cons: "On the airline website it said that flights to OC flew out of the international terminal but they don't. Then the flight took off 1/2 hour late at least."
Cons: "lost luggage.......two days...............................19 miles away."
Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."
Cons: "It's confusing that SFO to SNA is in international. I almost missed my flight after running to the air train in a mad dash after going through security in domestic Alaska. Stressful..."
Pros: "As the flight was delayed, staff made sure we had water and snacks in the terminal and kept us up to day. Kudos!"
Pros: "The staff was super friendly and the plane was new. It felt brand new."
Pros: "1. Boarding appeared streamlined. 2. Plugs ins for tech. 3. Coffee smelled amazing. 5. Seat size seemed larger than most airplanes."

Pros: "Excellent service. I would fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I didn't try the food or entertainment."
Pros: "Would be better to allow blue Tooth headsets to view tv/movies did not have wired head phones and did not want to purchase them."
Cons: "1 hour delay. I asked. Front desk said it was due to sfo fog. Me: Isn't it 2017? They have radars now; I have flown from Boston under severe snow storms. Yes. I have."
Pros: "I liked that they have Danny devito has a mascot"
Pros: "Staff was great, loading and unloading of plane was swift"
Cons: "There's absolutely no way to be comfortable flying while fat and wide unless you have first class seat money. WHY DO THE SIDES NOT GO UP? I had a hard plastic seat divided lodged in my outer thigh with no hopes for comfort for over an hour, I cried from the pain."
Cons: "I like that they have the power supply for the electronics on board."
Pros: "Hard to find much good to say. The flight crew did their best on a packed flight."
Cons: "The boarding in sfo was horrendous. I finally made the flight with 5 minutes to spare. No room for my carry on so stewardess helped (?) and stowed for me. My bag was supposed to be available in Portland but was not. Alaska personnel couldn't find it and I was told to board my last flight to Bellingham and it would be on the flight. It wasn't so had to file a claim in Bellingham and it arrived about 12 hours later. How do you lose carry on???!!"
Pros: "very comfortable seats and comfortable plane in general."
Pros: "appetizer plate and the service by the wonderful flight attendant Kristy. she was very friendly, kind and generous. 5 stars to her. thank you Kristy!"
Pros: "Better than United and no stopover in SFO."
Pros: "Service was solid. I liked the $12 voucher to use at the airport while waiting for 2.5 hour delayed flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay"
Pros: "First flight (out of 5) they didn't run out of hot meals before they got to me."
Cons: "Delay for more than an hour due to malfunction in the cockpit with no explanation for a very long time. Seats would not recline even an inch and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Loved it! Great food choices and we downloaded the app so we watched a few free movies!"
Cons: "I would like to have as much room in coach as first class, but that won't happen. :)"
Pros: "Seats were comfy"
Cons: "Delayed and no head rest tv screens :( Flew with my two kids those sure make a difference on how my flight goes"
Pros: "Friendly crew, free mai tai."
Cons: "Pay for baggage."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the professionalism the ticket people at the counter. they were very helpful and very pleasant. I like both alaska airlines and virgin America. I never have a problem when I fly with them."
Cons: "the only thing that was unpleasant was my boyfriend was missing a phone charger and some cigars out of his suitcase. it must of happened through customs or the baggage handling."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour due to maintenance. We finally boarded with good news that it would take us just an hour and twenty five minutes from SFO to SEA. But then there was another delay on the strip for an hour. Then the off boarding process was extremely slow as well. Was just felt like a very long night."
Pros: "The cabin was miserably hot"
Pros: "My flight was delayed by two hours, but I got to go on the earlier flight (that left at my original time), and they even gave me a Premium seat!"
Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."
Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful."
Cons: "I was asked to change seats twice. The first time before we boarded, to accommodate a family. That was totally fine with me. Then I was asked a second time as I was boarding to accommodate a couple. Of course I agreed again, but it was a little much."
Pros: "No delays whatsoever, we left almost on the dot. Friendly staff, decent snacks and good in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Good experience overall"
Cons: "Having to pay for in flight entertainment on domestic route and small seats"
Pros: "I like that you could watch TV, movies, or listen to music."
Cons: "When we arrived to SFO the flight was delayed for mechanical issues. When they couldn't fix the plane they had to fly another one from the Island to get us. This resulted in over a 14 hour delay and ruining our plans for our first day. The wing in SFO was all under construction so if you wanted to get anything you had to leave security and go back through it over and over."
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Luggage situation"
Cons: "My surfboard bag was ripped and all straps were broken and was then patched up with duct tape!!! What the F#€*?!! It looked like it fell off the plane and was run over. Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland"
Cons: "No free blanket. No free entertainment."
Cons: "Waiting for baggage at the baggage claim."
Cons: "There should have been movie/tv options that were free!"
Pros: "I drink a lot of water and more so on flights. They weren’t apprehensive about serving me more than one glass of water/drinks (a problem i have had with other airlines)"
Cons: "The food was lack-luster and there werent any options (aside from the specialty diets that you can request ahead of time). They also did not provide any blankets or pillows during the flight and the AC was running the entire time."
Cons: "Most airlines offer free entertainment on long distance domestic flights as long as you bring your own headphones. This is a 5-hour flight. Why would Hawaiian Airline want to charge $7.99 for viewing a movie?"
Pros: "Crew was so nice, flight was easy, quick and smooth, and the whole thing was just enjoyable!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "When I checked in i asked the agent to help me board early since I was carrying a fragile musical instrument. She said check back later. I had no seat assigned and was told I would be seated after all families were taken care of. I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid. Thankfully I didn’t have to check the instrument but the hassle was a nightmare I really wanted to avoid."
Pros: "Food was better than most domestic airlines. Seats were large enough for comfortability during a long flight. Seats against walls still recline."
Cons: "Domestically, infotainment, headphones, blankets, and most drinks cost money. Can't pick seats online for international flights, so we're stuck with whatever is leftover. Planes not particularly clean; lots of crevices with years of debris."
Pros: "Boarding didn’t take too long and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "WiFi on plane would be awesome!"
Cons: "Online check in and Check in terminals at airport didn’t work"

Pros: "The free run punch and chips they serve right before landing."
Cons: "Reserved seats and they were not honored. Instead we were stuck in the next to last row. Agents were unapologetic and did not care."
Pros: "Ontime , friendly , comfortable, they really do take care of you"
Pros: "Food served is actually ok. Planes on time"
Cons: "I'm so sick and tired of being subjected to damn ads on Hawaiian Airlines flights. They literally use the claims form as an excuse to show a short video about how to fill it out and THEN give you two or three ads because they figure "what the hell we have your attention now and we're going to sell you something and increase our profits." I have had it with this type of capitalism that just milks people's patience. No thanks! And no more damn Hawaiian Airlines credit cards ads! For crying out loud."
Pros: "Good price, food and drink free, cocktail prior to landing in Oahu, accommodate to have two seats together"
Cons: "Didn't know seat assignment ahead of time, in flight entertainment needed to be paid for"

Pros: "The tropical twist to the food served on board."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "We didn't have assigned seats for some reason. At the gate, the agent placed is in extra comfort seats at no extra charge. Nice!"

Cons: "the one hour delay"
Pros: "Not really Thier fault as they were waiting on the ground crew but they could have at least turned on the A/C. We were very hot in there waiting."
Pros: "I like the customer service on the plane. They were pleasant. The plane was clean the planes was pretty empty. It was comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like the people who was at the San Fran airport who checked us in. I have a sister who Is handicap and I needed assistance and they had no Mercy. Honolulu gave us much better service Then San Francisco. The people in Honolulu helped us from the time we exited our car till we got on the plane."
Pros: "On my flight to SF I had a runny nose and requested for tissue from the attendant. She was so busy and forgot, but I managed to get tissue from the restroom. On my way back to HI, she was in my flight and apologized (I didn't even notice her since I was preoccupied) - I told her it was busy and I saw her working it and it was okay. She offered her help in anything and I thought that was super sweet, then she said.. I wont forget this time. Nice touch"
Cons: "The HNL airport check in is very crowded and confusing--everyone just crowds and no one knows where to go"
Pros: "Very nice helpful people at Hawaiin airlines"
Cons: "There was a little delay due to my flight being over sold, but Hawaiin airlines as quick to react by switching to a bigger plane. We took off late but still ended up landing on time. wow!"
Cons: "The original 9/23 9:05 am flight from SF to Honolulu was cancelled. The airline staff did not say a word why the flight was cancelled, but they were kindly enough to put me on a United Airline flight at 1:15pm on the same day. But the UA flight got delayed and delayed, I didn't get on the airplane until 5pm on 9/23. This was such a terrible experience, I wasted 9 hours at the airport and had to cancel so many activities I have planned on 9/23."
Pros: "Excellent service, the food was perfect, they gave us a Ron Hawaiian, it was so yummy...and they gave us a good impression from the island."
Pros: "I upgraded my seat while checking in and was satisfied with the amount of leg room I had."

Pros: "Airbus seats were comfy. Air hostesses were nice, but I didn't get anything because I was sleeping the whole flight."
Cons: "Did not like the girl at the check in counter. No smiles at all, not a good representation of aloha Hawaiian spirit. She looked like she hates her job. She couldn't assign me a seat right there and she told me she'll call me up to boarding counter. She also promised to get me an aisle seat on my next flight but she gave me window instead."
Pros: "Everything l just Love it .takin off and landing was Absolutely Flawless congratulations TO The Pilot."
Cons: "Absolutely,Nothing At all"
Pros: "It was easy helpful and a delight . All of you are great and had a good time I'll do it again."

Pros: "Atmosphere at board during the flight"
Pros: "The price was very good."
Cons: "I was told by an Hawaiian representative that if I joined their mileage program that there would be an reduced rate for the first bag used on their flight. So I joined as did my wife. Yet this info was incorrect and my wife needed to pay $25 for her bag from SJC to HLN. Plus in arriving in HLN we need to talk about 1/2 mile to their baggage claim which is in a separate terminal than the landing terminal."
Cons: "The quality of the complimenty red wine was extremely poor quality"
Pros: "Everything went well with the airlines. On time leaving and getting to our destination. Crew was friendly and wonderful. Food was ok, not a vegetarian."
Cons: "I did a pre check on line and had to have my boarding pass printed at the airport. My husband had a tsa pre check and I didn't. It was such a hassle to get thru the long lines, my husband had to wait about 15-20 minutes for me to get thru. Is there any way that a couple or family can all have tsa pre check together?"
Cons: "Have to pay for entertainment on a 12 hour flight Only free choices were Hawaiian commercials"
Pros: "Atmosphere, service."
Cons: "A who;e family of like 8 people getting kicked off the plane for something the patriarch said to a flight attendant. To be fair, I have no idea what he said, and it very well may have been warranted, I don't know, but it made me sad."
Cons: "Hopefully upgrade on monitors (touch screen was not working),"
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"

Pros: "I liked the movies and overall entertainment available to the passengers."
Cons: "The food selection needs a poultry option."
Cons: "Didnt fly from San Francisco to Atlanta"
Pros: "Quiet, quick, no issues"
Cons: "Slow boarding. Slowest boarding everr. Maybe not enough overhead space, doesn't make sense how there is not enough overhead space while calling zone 2 passengers."
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"
Pros: "Once aboard, flight went without a hitch and flight crew was attentive"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"

Pros: "Polite crew, clean plane, smooth reservation and seat selection process"
Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kept making rounds with water so we didn't have to get up looking for it. Free entertainment at our seats made the flight go by faster."
Cons: "No complaints, I was stuck in a middle seat but somebody has to sit there!"
Cons: "entertainment system had terrible touch response flight was delayed by 1.5hrs"

Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "the 1 hour delay, when we arrived we sat for another hour and I missed my international flight"
Pros: "Plane was a newer one, clean, and the stewards were nice."
Cons: "New seating was terrible. The seats are so jammed together that my knees were pushed up into the seat in front. How can anyone be comfortable with this kind of seating arrangements?"
Pros: "Quick flight and we flew over Yosemite (where we recently hiked). Also, the free in-flight entertainment is such a nice addition! My wife and I had the seat open next to us, so it was very nice to have extra room in our row!"
Pros: "Free drinks"

Hands down Delta IS THE BEST, there nothing better then having Free movies to pass the time, from TV to HBO and SHOWTIME and Current Movies in the theaters TODAY music, games, etc even free headsets any eye cover to rest ALL FOR FREE Delta isn't so worried about charging for eveything, a happy traveler is a repeat traveler, that is DELTAS GOAL Happy repeat travelers I voiced my displeasure with Hawaiian after finding out on my Day flight over I get charged $10 for blanket n pillow and free ( bad ) meal. Then on red eye home it's free blanket and no food, I can bring my own better food, and blanket which I do, but to charge for entertainment is the worst thing ever, AND EVEN FOR SIMPLE MUSIC WAS A CHARGE, SUCH POOR SERVICE Delta hands down IS CUSTOMER SERVICE ORIENTED PERIOD DELTA DELTA DELTA I'M FOREVER YOUR HAPPY TRAVELER,"

Pros: "Service is good. Flight on time."
Cons: "Don't like the chicken wrap which is dry and hard."
Cons: "Charging money for window and aisle seats a new low"
Cons: "Apparently, using a third party source lost me the ability to choose my seat on both flights. The only book ahead options are ones I need to pay extra money for which feels like a scam. I won't be able to get a seat ahead of time on the way home either which will be an even longer flight (6+ hours) and will likely be stuck in a middle seat yet again. If this is the case with booking through third party sites, I won't do this again."
Pros: "The small scack/meal was excellent. Good service. Smooth flight. In-out-done! Good job Delta!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything negative. A long time standing by on runway waiting for departure."
Pros: "Big plane and fairly comfortable"
Cons: "It's more of a shuttle than a transcontinental. Seats are narrow with little leg room. Like all others you have to pay for everything. Delta terminal is not easy at jfk. Sfo is fine and works well All airlines are the same these days. Flights are uncomfortable and crew just throws out peanuts and water"
Cons: "The person taking tickets asked me to check my bag. I said ok and he instructed me to step aside and taking anything out of it that I might need. I did this and when I came back they had locked the doors."
Pros: "I was able to fly standby so I arrived early and so did my luggage."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."
Pros: "On time. Arrived 30 mins early. New plane."
Cons: "Middle seat. Very crowded, could hardly work on my laptop. Food was not great. Had a turkey roll. Opt to pay for the $10 sandwich at the airport."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Check in staff was horrible... Communication was horrible, also I asked not once not twice but three times to make sure my seat was confirmed the lady said yes, so when I returned to check in they tried to charge me again for my bag and my seats after I told them repeatedly I hadn't already paid and showed them my confirmation email."

Pros: "Check in and boarding were so easy and convenient. Even security went fast."

Cons: "Sun country staff are a bunch of sticklers. They wouldn't let me use the bathroom. They made rude remarks to me when I was trying to find my seat. I am consistently disappointed in the crew"
Cons: "Terrible, unusable headphones. That's it. Everything else was just a terrific trip."
Pros: "Unlike the horror stories from the news, everyone at Sun Country was extremely friendly and helpful. This was true from the person on the phone, through the check-in and boarding process. They were very efficient and left on time. It was a redeye so no food or drink service or entertainment as far as could tell, which was fine."
Cons: "The issues that had, I would probably have with any airline: The seats are small, uncomfortable, crammed together and completely booked. It was a red-eye, I was exhausted, brought my own pillow and I still had a difficult time sleeping. I have been flying for over 30 years and the situation has only gotten worse."
Pros: "Easy boarding!"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi or charging opportunities on the plane."
Cons: "I will never fly Sun Country again. They denied me boarding because the plane left early, even though I had checked in online earlier that day, alerted staff in person at the airport that I was on my way to the gate, and arrived at the gate BEFORE the scheduled departure time. One phone call from Sun Country staff could have kept the plane at the gate until the scheduled departure time, and I would have made my flight. This company is not keeping up with its competitors in terms of customer service and convenience, and I will not be giving them my business again."
Pros: "Staff was competent, helpful and polite."
Pros: "staff was nice, snack sizes were large and reasonably priced"
Cons: "we were on the plane well over an hour and a half before beverage service began for our 3.5hr flight. i had planned to catch up on work during the flight and was told there was no wifi. i would've flown a different airline had i known that and paid the extra for the ticket. it wasn't worth what i saved. also the seats are not comfortable and seem smaller and closer together than most. there was barely room under the seat to store my purse."
Pros: "Staff were attentive and professional."
Cons: "Got a piece of napkin in with the ice for my drink. Now sure how that happens."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and old. Crew seemed snippy although I had no direct issue. Absolutely no snack or entertainment unless you pay for it."
Pros: "I have never seen such a steady stream (no pun intended) of passengers using the restroom. Crew was having a hard time getting beverage carts out as a result, but handled it with charm."
Cons: "Not enough overhead storage"
Pros: "Your flight was wonderful."
Cons: "I liked all"
Pros: "Goes directly to MSP from SFO."
Cons: "Would be nice if they traveled from Oakland, CA. The seats are too narrow. The aisle ''tis too narrow. There should be access to front and rear bathrooms as available. Don't charge for baggage. Provide free snacks"
Cons: "The delayed flight- waiting - not on time"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were told that due to a full flight if we volunteered our bags at the gate then we would get them at the gate when we stepped off the plane. Seeing that it was later flight and I intentionally didn't want to volunteer but did with that stipulation I'm pretty unhappy. I know as a flight attendant or airline worker you probably have the "get over or attitude" but I don't share that. You'll have to "get over" the fact that I'll fly another airline mext time."
Pros: "The announcements were humorous and quirky"
Cons: "Seats narrow, aisle narrow, no snacks provided gratis. No real personal care given by staff. Bland"
Pros: "We had mobility issues and got great help♡"
Pros: "Sun Country checked my bag for free since they were short on space. The seats were comfortable and they offered drinks and snacks often. The staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We took off late due to a mechanical but were not updated regularly."
Cons: "The flight was an hour-and-a-half delayed, which meant a 12:30 a.m. arrival into Minneapolis, the seats are uncomfortable (even the $25-extra exit row seat I paid for), and they don't even serve peanuts or any kind of minimal snack, not even when they're an hour and a half late!"
Pros: "Good service; free soda, stowed our carry-on rollers. Best of all: no hidden fees and extras. Honest pricing good flight. A throwback to better times."
Cons: "As always, exiting plane took forever."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly, seats comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like that they only offer one hot food - a hamburger. A wrap and or sandwich offering (healthier choice) would be better. Other airlines offer more."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive, there were extra seats on the plane which gave us room to stretch out. Easy experience all around."
Cons: "Apparently (from the conversation behind me), the cheese/cracker platter ran out on the flight, which I had on a previous flight. Its awesome, but if this is worth writing about, then I cant really complain."
Pros: "Good pilot. Kind workers before boarding."
Cons: "Having a crew member tell me i cant bring my own alchol. No other airline has bothered me about bringing my own alchol."
Pros: "Everything was great. no complaints!"
Pros: "U S money is legal tender for all debts public and private how come I have to use a credit card when I wnat to pay with US currency doens't seem legal"
Pros: "Wonderful service and the staff was great!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are so close"
Pros: "Gave me good food."
Pros: "Good service and friendly attendants"
Cons: "Both legs of round trip were delayed by 2 hours, and no mobile tickets."
Pros: "Decent price, polite administrative staff in home office"
Cons: "Website - wouldn't allow me to check in, difficulty with mobile site, frustrating repeated issues with seating choices and online check in. Seat assignment - only pre- releasing and then having airline assign certain number of seats is a ridiculous system that results in people being uncomfortable and lacking any ability to exert preferences for certain seating conditions. This is like a process for the 1960s airline, especially combined with the dysfunctional website."
Pros: "At first it seemed cheaper but ..."
Cons: "You won't actually get to your destination. When you choose to fly Sun Country you'll think you saved $50 by not flying delta or American or whoever. When you get to airport prepare to fork over that extra cash because more than likely you'll have to switch airlines. switch ? Why ? Inevitably flights get delayed a little bit and when you get delayed and have a connection to make you'll be royally screwed. The next connecting flight won't be for another 12hours because this airline is the butthole of airlines and always flies like four planes total."
Cons: "Crew member opened champagne bottle as passengers were getting on the flight and it spilled on the person in front of me and on myself and I had to ask for napkins from him instead of him apologizing and giving them to me himself. No free food, not even chips or anything. No TVs. I was on a 5 hour flight with no in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Connecting flights held to accommodate late arrival."
Cons: "Flight attendant was abrupt with passengers."
Pros: "Boarding experience was pretty smooth. I liked that because it was a 4 hour flight they served us drinks twice. The crew was generally very nice and pleasant. I didn't purchase any food or rent the entertainment center."
Cons: "It was too cold at first (and I saw many others fiddling with the AC vent and putting hats and scarves on), but after I told them about it they turned down the AC to a comfortable temperature."
Pros: "Checkin was smooth and e"
Pros: "I had never heard of Sun Country before flying San Francisco to Minneapolis. I decided to look up the airline on Yelp to see what kind of experience to expect, and found that I may have to deal with delays and rude customer service. I was glad that neither of those turned out to be true. Flight boarded and left right on time, despite being toward the end of the day, and everyone was perfectly courteous."
Cons: "I'm sad for the days when you'd get free food on flights. There are no complimentary snacks on this airline, but then again most have done away with them. So yeah, pretty standard experience."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "worst food options i have ever seen on an airline"
Cons: "Crew very good"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Pros: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Cons: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff"
Cons: "More non dairy food obtions"
Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."
Pros: "Lots of good movies"
Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "Very tight fit."
Pros: "Staff was really friendly Boarding was easy Flight was on time"
Cons: "Not much space within the seats Food was mediocre Entertainment was okay"
Pros: "I gate checked in the stroller at LAX. When it was pretty much dumped in front of me at LHR with an unspecified apology, the sun hood was bent so it doesn't fold right anymore, there's scuff marks on the side, there's a part missing from the left wheel and it drags to one side now. Not happy. If I'd been told, we'll take this off you and damage it, I might have checked it normally. Our car seat was fine."
Cons: "Damaging our stroller. Food wasn't good either. A yogurt with various toppings apparently is a "Continental breakfast"."
Pros: "That the staff at American Aiirlunes were helpful in getting me to my destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then canceled!!!!! I missed my connecting flight in Miami."
Pros: "Nothing. Cause it didn't happen"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful! Especially Glenda."
Cons: "The flight was delayed six hours."
Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Pros: "Great entertainment system at each seat"
Cons: "Food was nasty and they didn't have a non dairy option"
Pros: "Customer services was good."
Cons: "Seat was too small,food was disappointed."
Pros: "Movie options"
Cons: "2 hour delay was inconvenient. Like why?"
Pros: "Great choices of entertainment that made the flight very enjoyable"
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Pros: "The crew relax and smile"
Cons: "very small seats"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."
Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Cons: "I bought Japan Air but it was American air.. I'm not buy tickets any more!!"
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "The flight was on time, even arrived early. Nice crew and plenty of food/snacks. It was good to have a selection of movies and TV shows to watch, too."
Cons: "The lack of space on such a long flight was painful, and there wasn't much opportunity to stretch my legs. I was also seated across from a woman who didn't realize how stupid it was to bring a toddler on a 12 hour flight, and he screamed pretty much the entire time. I couldn't sleep at all and not even headphones drowned it out. That part wasn't really the airline's fault though, and I could see that the flight attendants were asking her several times to get her son to quiet down. I just wish there were regulations on these sorts of situations. Everyone around you suffers when you bring a small child on a very long flight because they will inevitably be bored, cranky and uncomfortable, and because we are confined to our seats, we are forced to suffer through it all. I wish that children under a certain age would not be allowed to board flights over a certain length of time except for special circumstances."
Pros: "New aircraft."
Cons: "The flight from LAX to HKG was diverted to Haneda, Tokyo. The septic tank was not properly emptied in LAX. Flight in Hong Kong was delayed by about 2 hours due to this diversion. I agree with the call from the Captain. It's a pity that the poor quality of service team in LAX (probably 1-2 individuals) caused tremendous inconvenience to passengers and crew."
Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "Checkin was a nightmare! Not clearly marked and very confusing at LAX."
Cons: "all flights delayed"
Pros: "Fast trip to london. Even it was late by more than hours plot made up some lost time. Entertainment was very good both in quality and varieties."
Cons: "Throughout the trip it was very bumbby. The food was not nearly as good as other cross Atlantic airlines."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude, had us waiting forever get off the plane"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "Practically no food was served."
Cons: "Flight cancelled , no communication, the flight the next day delayed two hours and we where given four different gate numbers for the flight, walked backwards and forwards trying to find the correct gate with my children."
