Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more.

First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

They were super friendly, efficient, thorough, assited the elderly on the flight, and continuously cleaned the cabin. they helped people organize the bags in overhead ducts and always had a smile. They should be the standard for service on all flights. Excellent job."
Cons: "Having to go through Kayak wasn’t helpful. I wasn’t kept informed of the flight and getting to my flight schedule was difficult. Going through the website was also frustrating and confirming flights was difficult."
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "Everything was delightful on Delta’s side. Very comfortable. Great service."
Cons: "Why do parents with infants choose to sit in First Class. Crying babies are not appreciated when I’ve paid a lot of money for a First Class experience. The parents in the sears behind me had a child who cried & cried. It was a real spoiler for me. I enjoyed eveeeythinf about the First Class experience except that."

Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The crew was great and nice. Very professional and clearly made safety number one."

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly enough. No carryon barggage fee, no checked baggage fee."
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly; however, they were never able to tell us which gate we were landing in. We ended up barely making our connection after the final call for boarding with the 45 minute delay from de-icing in MSP. It would have been nice to know the gate number before getting off the flight so that we knew where to go in the terminal. A complimentary snack or breakfast wasn't provided on the 4 hour flight, and they only came through once with the beverage service."
Pros: "Nothing. Rude check in person. Not accommodating. Terrible airline."

Pros: "NON-STOP !!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice stewardesses - very polite and helpful"
Cons: "When I checked in online the day before, I was only given seats that I had to pay an additional charge! I had already paid for my tickets when I booked the flight. This is ridiculous to check in and be expected to pay an additional charge just to get a seat! No snacks unless you pay for them - also ridiculous."
Cons: "No outlets or wifi or charging capabilities"
Pros: "Very easy connecting in the Sun County terminal in Minneapolis. Gates are close together and there are many restaurants."
Cons: "No complementary food, no complementary entertainment, older plane."
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: "Very good have fun with the"
Pros: "Crew was kind"
Pros: "I flew 1st class first time and it was great."
Pros: "Sun Country is a good budget fare choice--$117 round trip to Vegas this time! Seats & leg room are fine and ample space under seat in front of passenger to stow personal gear."
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed, apparently due to a late arriving flight. Consequently the plane was not as clean as usual as evidenced by ( I did not use bathroom) minor debris on seats & beverage rings on pull down table because the cleaning crew had less than 10 minutes to work. Otherwise fine."
Pros: "Smooth trip"
Cons: "The man sitting next to me with an infant was forced to wait from 9am until the 1135 pm flight because he was in traffic and only checked in 35 minutes early. No exceptions for a small baby. Sad!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding; great staff on plane and at ticketing"
Pros: "Overall it was good but the airlines want more more moneyif you pay close to $1000 you should get free movies not have to pay $12"
Pros: "Smooth flight.That's it."
Cons: "2 hour wait to get luggage checked because of really bad employees and no water till an hour into the flight. You should really make water available to customers that ask"
Pros: "The employees were so attentive & caring. Very accommodating. Was pleasantly surprised."
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."
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: "It's 8:18 pm and no one here. No plane no person so i guess im stuck with a lot more."
Pros: "First time on this carrier. After research last Fall, I was confident of the companies history so we were able to save a few $$ using Sun Country on a non-stop direct flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis. Great crew both ways and consistent with their pleasant and positive approach to all passengers. Will use Sun Country again when the time avails itself/ Go USA . Winning the 41st Ryder Cup."
Pros: "Overall great, boarding was fast the stewardess did an awesome job of making you comfort and supplying your needs. Met several people from various places interesting. Will be looking forward to another Journey again sometime soon."
Pros: "Sitting in an exit row allowed for lots of leg room and boarding early with the first class passengers. The price of the flight was very reasonable."
Cons: "Not being able to recline my seat, and no fancy in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "direct flight from San Fran saved time."
Cons: "everything was fine."
Pros: "Good flight!"
Cons: "Sometimes couldn't do online check-in, was instructed to check-in at the airport."

Cons: "It was an overnight flight and we could not recline the seats, which made sleep impossible."
Pros: "I liked the price of the flight."
Cons: "I didn't care for the boarding process. They boarded the middle , row 15 last, and by the time we got on to put bags away our section was full. We had to store bags all the way in the back. It made getting off the plane a hassle because we then had to wait for everyone to get off before we could grab our bags. Was never offered a drink either."
Cons: "While returning to my seat after using the toilet I witnessed an older, female, blond flight attendant be inappropriate with a passenger. The passenger happened to have a hijab on. The flight attendant repeatedly, & with a raised voice, told the passenger to go back to her seat and even put her hands on her shoulders three times pushing her in the direction of her seat. Meanwhile, the passenger was in line for the bathroom and, more importantly, was waiting for her much younger brother who was in line 3 people ahead of her; The flight attendant either could not hear us try to tell her that she was waiting for her younger brother or did not care. It made me feel very uncomfortable as she seemed to be singling this woman out. The woman was very appropriate wth her, despite being discriminated against as well as having had been pushed away."
Pros: "Good flight. No delays. Fast luggage retrieval."
Cons: "I didn't have seat assignments and waited on the phone for over 50 minutes to talk to a representative. He said seats would be assigned at the airport. With 4 in our party, I was concerned about seats, since the map showed no available seats."
Pros: "Ok beer prices food limited and expensive"
Pros: "Frontier's hidden charges make me appreciate the experience with sun country even more. Up front and fair service with no surprises was Sun Country."

Cons: "The seatback offered free streaming of AA entertainment on my tablet, but when I opened the browser and selected entertainment, the only option was to pay $9.95, so I just watched downloaded Netflix episodes. Plus the movies offered on AA streaming didn't look especially good."

We had a party of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) our seating was split sporadically, the 2 adults were split and placed in two different rows next to 2 other single individuals. The 2 children were placed in the back rows. Same rows next time!!!"
Pros: "On time"

Cons: "The A319 that was used appeared quite tired. Strange irregular banging noises were heard and felt under the wing root area as jet taxied out of Santa Ana. After landing, a very high pitch squeal started and lasted 5 minutes after engine shut-down. Finally, there was a very loud "sawing noise" coming from under the aircraft after parking in the terminal that others commented about the loud sawing noise. Canadair aircraft was much nicer and quieter that was used from SFO to Santa Ana."

Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."

I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
