He then made everyone who had lined up in general boarding line exit the line and then finally turned on the sign that said preferred boarding. Then the same thing happened again. He could have saved all of us and including himself lots of frustration if he had just made an announcement regarding the boarding process with directions when he was about to start boarding.

Pros: "Free food, space, drink."
Cons: "Charges to check in two small bags were $70. Had to upgrade to comfort section for $80 because no aisle seats in coach were available for this handicapped senior citizen customer . Plus tips for wheelchair services made this an expensive one way flight."

Cons: "I needed some medicine up above in my carryon. I asked an attendant while we were still at the terminal but doing announcements and was told I could get it if I did it quickly When I stood up I was told to take my seat sharply by another. Later when no one was in the galley I poured some water from a bottle sitting there into a cup to drink. The attendant who came by in a raised rude tone told me to go sit down and grabbed the water from my. He proceeded to say “How could you do that as it was so unsanitary”"
Pros: "Meal served"
Cons: "I was annoyed with the fact that everything cost money. The women next to me asked for water and the flight attendant said that she could pay for it or wait for breakfast. I was thirsty on the plane but I was not about to pay $8 for a bottle of water. I was also not happy that almost all the movies (with the exception of three about the sea) had to be purchased. Most planes now have at least an app with movies on it for free, especially on 6 hour flights."

Pros: "Two male attendees, tried to help. Female supervisor rude and turned us down no problem."

I'm suppose to photograph my friends wedding tomorrow which I'm going to miss his ceremony AND my mom lost one day of work which is a huge deal and ONE day of being in Hawaii out of the four days we planned. I got it as a gift for her, and now were both in our apartment in orange doing nothing, when we are suppose to be arriving to hawai for the first time ever. So upset, and sad and bummed. What a let down. 41 min before our flight and there was nothing anyone could have done. I was on your site for over an hour checking all the guidelines about bags, carry ons, where we need to be and i didn't check in time at all. I just can believe this, a hotel room paid will be empty, and well be here waiting until tomorrow so we could repeat the same thing this morning. waking up at 530 a, heading to LAX in traffic from orange . why."
Cons: "Every time the flight attendant walk by there was a strange odor, maybe onions. When they past out some bags of Hawaiian potato chips, the bag had that odor and we then thought it must be the chips and from her being around them. We decided not to eat them and carried then off in our carry on baggage The next day I was hungry and decided to eat a bag. The odor was gone and the chips didn't smell at all Turns out it was the flight attendant. Maybe the type of food she consumes or her clothes were around a lot of garlic and onions Hope she is not on our return flight"

Cons: "The food left much to be desired. Biscuit only had cheese in it-not even bacon or sausage or for that matter, spam. It is Hawaiian Airlines afterall (no more free leis after you get off the plane either). I appreciated the individual movie screens but my touch screen kept freezing and I couldn't make a selection."
Pros: "Crew was very polite cabin was very clean"
Cons: "Seats are too small, no leg room. Breakfast sandwich, although complimentary wasn't very good.To get a blanket or pillow you had to purchase them."

Pros: "Nice touch with breakfast crew was very pleasant. Aloha!"
Cons: "The only free content was Hawaiian airlines sponsored documentaries. The touch screen was hard to control and frustrating"
Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Cons: "Don't assume you will get a good fare just because you book 2.5 months in advance, have a Delta AmEx card, and use some of your earned miles"
Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."
Pros: "best meal ive had in so long service was great the captain anniuncements were clear and detailed"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "5+ hours and just some bagged snacks. Had to wait forever for soda. Screen was difficult to work - touch wasn’t working. Much smaller program selection than flights 6 days ago from RSW to LAX via ATL."
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Cons: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"
Pros: "The gate agents were gruff, but helpful. Stewards were super friendly."
Cons: "Even though I had picked out two seats together, they had us separated. Very thankfully they put us back together after the fact - that was wonderful & appreciated. But entertainment system also didn’t work, and as always, seats are disgustingly uncomfortable. Also odd that they made us check bags with so many empty overhead bins."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."

Cons: "Sun Country website was down so I couldn’t check in. I received an error message. When I got to the airport the computers were down so the line was very long. They continued checking people’s bags and when we got to security several peopke missed the 1pm flight Lax to Minneapolis flight. When I tried to rebook the Sun country air employees scolded me and others for coming to the airport late. Long story short I bought and American airlines flight home I’ll never fly with them again... I’ll spread the word amongst my community."

I want to know why I cannot take the camera and if the personnel's behavior is appropriate"
Pros: "In this age of Making America Great Again...people need to learn to mind their own business and just...stop. Never have I been stared down by a flight crew of white folks more in my entire life. It's a little disappointing, as this was a flight back to my home town after years of being away..and Sun Country is based there. You can feel and see the aggressive body language coming at you, so I just ignore till then point It's chrystal clear, then allm of a sudden...the body language becomes self consciousness when they realize...i am here for flight, whatever other agenda you may have has nothing to do with me and won't get my attention. You need more people of color working you flights in and out of the Midwest. There's a certain sensitivity that comes with that. Disappointed, but not surprised."
Cons: "I wasn't even offered food or a drink when the carts rolled. It was so obviously, the old white lady sittikng next to me shot the stewardess a negative glance and all of a sudden it...would you like something to drink..as an after thought. I politely declined and looked out the window and played on my Kindle the entire flight."
Cons: "all ok"
Cons: "Did not get any service attention between LA and Minneapolis."

Cons: "ON MY WAY BACK HOME FROM MSP AIRPORT. I GOT TO THE AIRPORT AT 2:10 PM MY FLIGHT IS AT 3:05 PM.

I TALKED TO THE MANAGER AND SHE IS TELLING ME THE FLIGHT IS LEAVING 10 MINUTES EARLY. I TOLD THEM NO ONE INFORMED ME THAT THE FLIGHT IS LEAVING EARLY. THEY DIDN'T LET ME GET ON MY FLIGHT. I WAS AT THE AIRPORT ONE HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT. I HAD TO TAKE ANOTHER FLIGHT TO SAN FRANCISCO THAN PAY $300 FOR A FLIGHT BACK TO LOS ANGELES. I REPORT THIS AIRLINE TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU BECAUSE THAT IS A JOKE I GOT TO THE AIRPORT 1 HOUR BEFORE MY FLIGHT AND I CANT GET ON."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I was unable to use the ticket from LAX to MSP due to a death in my family!. I had to book another earlier flight with another airline to get home to a funeral. Unfortunately, Sun Country didn't have a flight back to MSP the day / time I needed. When I contacted the regarding my cancelation they refunded my money, no questions asked!"
Pros: "Offer to check carry-on for free."
Cons: "I had to return my rental car about 5 hours before flight and didn't realize I would have to wait for Sun Country's ticketing to open for two more hours. Have to pay for blankets and pillows? Then turn temperature up."
Cons: "Weird boarding process, boarded late--litte communication from crew"
Pros: "Sun Country was able to move me to an earlier flight and I really appreciated that."
Cons: "It would have been nice if the pilot would have announced what we were flying over. There was beautiful scenery that I couldn't identify."
Pros: "It started with the crew at the desk being very helpful, attentive when we came to check in. And both times, coming and going, they were this way...and friendly. This sets the tone for the rest of the trip."
Cons: "Sharing a single gate with 3 airlines leaving at the same time is I'm sure not what anyone wants. Departing time was supposed to be at 1210, instead we took a bus to I think Mexico to board the plane then we taxied the plane all the way back to LAX and took off at 218 (well documented time). I was late for work so I was let go, my wife left me and took our 4 sort of intelligent kids with her. I'm just glad I could write this review before my phone services are shut down do to lack of funds. At the end of the day things could have been worse but I'll survive. "Just keep swimming"-Dory"
Cons: "Did not eat or have entertainment on the way over so you could say NA."
Cons: "chose seats for the fight back weeks ahead of time but when we checked in my husbands seat was moved10+ rows behind us and from an aisle to a center seat. He is 6 feet 8 inches tall, luckily there was an open exit aisle seat an they upgraded him without charge...otherwise would have been a horrible fathers day for all"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late arrival. Circling MSP due to weather"
Pros: "Sun Country has a system which promotes smooth boarding. First to board are for those with special needs requiring more time (families with kids, etc.), then the first class passengers, then those without carry-on, or who are willing to leave their carry-on as gate check, then for the first 10 rows, and then the back rows, and then everyone else. This seems to work fairly well since it minimizes jams associated with front row seating first, as well as seating those who have large carry-ons."
Cons: "The only thing is that they should emphasize more that those who board first because they do not have carry-on, but just personal bags, should place those personal bags under the seat rather than use that to board first and then take up valuable space in the overhead compartment. I saw people board first claiming only personal bags, and then they would deposit their bags towards the front in overhead compartments, or they would just put their bags sideways in the overhead--taking up twice as much space as carryon bags going in lengthwise."

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!"
