Cons: "Great flight all around."

Pros: "It got us to Atlanta on time."

Cons: "The cabin temperature was very hot"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food could have been better, seat was uncomfortable."

Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."

Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."

Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"

Pros: "There was plenty of space under the seat in front of me for my personal items."
Cons: "There was an issue with a part on the plane so the flight was delayed so it could get fixed before takeoff. That is not a big deal, I'd rather it be safe than on time. But the way crew and staff handled it was pretty unprofessional. No one seemed to know what was going on or what to do."

Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"

Pros: "Crew was good. As always not enough leg room if you are taller. Resent having to pay extra for more leg room."

Pros: "The seat was great, I wish all seats on the plane were that comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, everyone was great"

Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."

Pros: "No major delays and able to make my connection. It was a standard flight without too much to report on"
Cons: "wish there could be less trash generated on airplanes. I notices that Flight Attendants on this flight separated the plastic cups from the trash, and I hope this got recycled."

Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"

Pros: "Delta crew & flight were excellent no complaints!"
Cons: "We were stopped by the Delta crew checking tickets as we got on to the flight. They let a party of 7 with a small child cut us in line. They even allowed another traveler to board with them. We were a party of 8 w/ 2 people in wheelchairs. They would not allow us all on & said only one could accompany them both. They were also very rude and unorganized."

Pros: "see above"

Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."

Cons: "Aiirlines always want to try and chargel extra money for everything. If you purchase tickets back in February and still can't sit with your significant other that's a problem to me."

Cons: "Boarding issues cause delay after plane had to be replaced People were double booked Then land awaited on tarmac because of no ground crew Caused me to miss my next flight"

Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."

Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."

Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"

Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."

Pros: "great flight free movie going down"
Cons: "no free movie/tv coming back"

Pros: "Good customer service"

Cons: "My toddler daughter became ill before departure and the crew was awful. They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."

Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable on the smaller plane"

Pros: "Easy boarding, great service from the flight crew, and excellent food and drink service. Seats were comfortable and plenty of entertainment options for a long flight"

Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"

Cons: "flight ticket very expensive."

Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."

Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."

Cons: "I liked it all"

Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."

Cons: "start from the back to the front for god's sake! crew is often focused more on process than customer service."

Pros: "Enjoyed food and movies.Woul"
Cons: "Would like more comedy or romance movies. Becky"

Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."

Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"

Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."

Pros: "Repair took just under an hour which I think is very good considering the paperwork that is involved. We were informed and everyone on the plane seemed to understand so the handling of the event must have been exceptional..."
Cons: "we took off 45 minutes late, business trip, but a slack day prepping for tomorrow, so still no big deal. Besides we picked up an hour by the time zone change. Im good!"

Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."

Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"

Pros: "Nice selection of in-flight media Ahead of time arrival"
Cons: "MSP baggage service was probably the longest delay I have ever experienced w Delta~40 minutes. (Overshadows the ahead of time arrival). Also, I had an oversize item-ski bag-which for some reason they did not deliver through the designated "oversize baggage" door but instead put out against the wall through a side door well down the terminal from the designated door. I might still be standing there except my traveling companion walked down that way and found it."

Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."

Pros: "Excellent crew. Better drinks in comfort plus BUT NO SCOTCH!! Bummer."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable even in special comfort plus ( too thin)."

Pros: "Crew was professional, courteous and kind. No issues on the plane."
Cons: "WiFi did not work for me to watch the on board entertainment, but not a dealbreaker for me."

Pros: "Clean airplanes, comfortable, efficient."
Cons: "Having neck problems I would love a recess or latch device for electronic devices that are at eye level when looking forward."

Pros: "They didn’t let me on I want a refund this made me miss my birthday party in Chicago thanks for ruining 25"
Cons: "Refund"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for five hours with no communication from sun country reps"

Pros: "I am thankful that the flight was delayed. I got to the airport late, the crew got me in right away, only took 15 minutes to get to my gate"
Cons: "It was a little turbulent ride, but overall good"

Pros: "The customer Service rep at check in was so helpful and accommodating!!!"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Flight departure was late. No entertainment options."

Pros: "Service was great everything was easily taken care of absolutely no complaints"

Pros: "I love the professionalism of the crew, our flight was seated on time, and our flight came into Vegas earlier than expected!!!"

Pros: "Flight was delayed and I was not notified. No on board entertainment. Connecting flight was also delayed. No on board entertainment either. Missed work due to delayed flights. Landed 2 hours late."

Pros: "Service, smiles, great trip"
Cons: "nothing to improve"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Now paying for checked bag and it took 45 minutes-an hour to get bags from the carousel"

Cons: "Was not offered accommodation due to their flight delay, which made me miss my connecting flight. Young woman alone in Minneapolis without any help or guidance, very uncomfortable expirience."

Pros: "Had a great flight, on time and no issues."
Cons: "Had problems getting checked in from home but easily resolved at the airport."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Had to wait upon arrival on tarmac to get to gate"

Cons: "I was traveling with a lap infant and the flight was more than half empty. The middle seat was empty next to me but the gate agents still would not allow me to bring my FAA approved carseat on board because I had not purchased a seat. Carseats make life so much easier for parents traveling with infants. Additionally it is safer for the infant. Finally, its better for fellow passengers because infants in their carseat can be better pacified while flying. Many other airlines allow carseats carried on when their flights aren't full (for free) and this is why I won't be flying Sun Country again."

Cons: "The crew simply was not friendly. Had a holier than thou attitude. Attendant gave me a huge eye roll and look of irritance when I asked to use bathroom."

Pros: "The headrest were nice, no neck pillow was needed because of how I could adjust it. Checking in was very quick and painless, something I appreciate very much. Drink service was nice, they did come around more then expected. The staff was very nice an accommodating , very friendly when we boarded the plane."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. I brought my husband for his first flight and I had told him how comfortable flying was, but when we boarded the plane he was a little horrified about the seats. He said, "they look like metal skeletons with pleather stretched over them." Yikes, I was a little embarrassed for telling him how comfortable he would be. I usually fly coach and I guess I was surprised not to find better seats and screens for movies attached to the back of the headrest (that sounds terribly spoiled, sorry)."

Pros: "The crew was super nice and enjoyable. The captain was funny, too!"
Cons: "Got stuck in seats that didn't recline. Very uncomfortable. No inflight entertainment unless I pay $12? Don't even get a snack anymore either on a $500 plane ticket. Big bummer!"

Cons: "We were in the last group to board and were forced to check our bags (with one other person), as the gate agent claimed there was not any remaining overheard storage space. Not only were there several spots for bags once we got on the plane, the overhead bins directly above our seats were practically empty. I don't mind cooperating when these things happen, but it's extremely frustrating when they happen completely unnecessarily."

Cons: "No snack options like in some other airlines."

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: "Easy check-in and boarding at Minnesota's hometown airline. Will always fly Sun Country if it's an option."

Pros: "This is the first time I fly with sun country and heard of them. The crew and staff all seem they enjoyed and cared about their job and customers. I always fly the mayor airlines for the first. I felt it welcomed and the staff wanted to serve me. I will definitely fly with them again"
Cons: "I have nothing to say. Everything was very good"

Pros: "So easy, totally enjoyed the Check in to landing!"

Cons: "When checking in our luggage the woman asked several times how many bags and we responded several times 2.my self and my wife. My wife even held up her hand indicating she was checking her bag. The woman charged me the initial bag fee of 25.00 then charged me again for an additional bag at 35.00. That was wrong since there was 3of us flying."

Pros: "Plane arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats were bit hard."

Pros: "We had a good flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis."
Cons: "A small snack would be a nice compliment to the beverage."

Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"

Pros: "The flights seemed to go fast once we were in the air and it was nice the pilot was trying to get us there earlier because we had taken off late."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"

Cons: "A bigger plane."

Cons: "When there’s a 30 minute delay on the tarmac, explain why."

Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"

Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."

Pros: "Yup, the best part was that even with Basic Economy our family got to sir together and love that the carry-on is free again. Try the crackers instead of Pretzels as a snack though"

Cons: "Horrible food"

Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."

Pros: "The pilot made up for a lot of time. The flight was said to be 1 hr 40 minutes about but we touched down after about only 1 hour in the air. Deboarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. We eventually boarded and then spent another 30 minutes waiting to taxi. Another narrow plane with not much room."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"

Cons: "Flight delayed, interior of aircraft was deteriorating"

Pros: "The movie selection was great!"

Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and was in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"

Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"

Pros: "AA is always on time! Love the premium economy!"

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."

Pros: "They were pretty much on time."
Cons: "The Gate Agents give NO information that could be useful. A passenger is at best a Number. I would not want to be non-traveler."

Pros: "It was o k."

Cons: "Easy and fast flight"

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Cons: "Canceled flight. Moved us to another flight IN ANOTHER CITY. Changed our second reschedule flight gate from one end of the airport to the other. NONE of the walkways worked. Total unorganized mess - this airline is run like idiots are running it! Very challenging as I have CHF."

Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."

Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."

Pros: "All great"
Cons: "Food and entertainment not applicable"

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Crew let people move to main cabin extra without paying like I did"

Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."

Pros: "How nice the crew were through it all was great! Flight to D.C. was smolth too."
Cons: "Because of the fire in the Tower, all flights in the DMV area were cancelled that evening. I was unable to go to work the following day having to request off sick."

Cons: "I was very cramped in my seat."

Pros: "Only 30 minutes or so to ORD from GRB Paid with AA points at 7,500 miles each way for a weekend in Chicago"

Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."

Cons: "Flight didn't leave on time so had to reschedule & fly out of Peoria next day . Lost day of vacation. Lost luggage."

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."

Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."

Pros: "Quick and easy"

Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."

Cons: "My flight date was changed because of a medical issue with my grandson, and I was outraged by the amount of the change fee."

Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."

Pros: "The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again"
