Alaska Airlines did very well w/ a totally full flight. I'd readily fly with you again, especially in comparison w/ several other airline experiences (late, not real positive crew or support staff,etc.) which shall stay unnamed. Something I would love, which airlines used to do long ago, would be a map or way to track the course and progress of the flight. I'd love to know what I was flying over, and be able to ID some landscape/landmarks.
Pros: "Nice quiet flight"
Cons: "Crew member attitude specifically regarding passengers in the emergency rows"
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "They were careless with our suitcases. When we got to Vancouver, we were missing wheels on our suitcases. 2 wheels on my husband's and 1 on mine. It made it horrible to pull the suitcases."
Pros: "Crew was thorough"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was good. Food is good but expensive."
Cons: "Free or inexpensive food options would be nice. I also prefer when the screens are in the back of the seat and I don't have to stream on my phone or pay high prices to use data."
Pros: "Crew were very attentive and hospitable to the crew. I have been flying ASIANA many times and enjoy the flight as well."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tray tables very dirty, flight overbooked, hard to find gate agents"
Cons: "Better snacks premium members"
Cons: "Better communication to passengers. Gate agent didn't know why it us delayed."
Pros: "Crew is always amazing and friendly on Alaska."
Cons: "There were no movie devices for some reason on the flight"
Cons: "Person next to me was tobacco smoking! And he was really obese taking up 2 seats! Airline shouldnt have noticed it and took action!"
Cons: "What have been nice if I was told that seat availability was nonexistent. I tried checking in each day without any information such as give it up you suck and you’re going to get the worst seed no better how much you try to avoid it…"
Pros: "The upgrade to premium was kool and worth it, if the flight wasn't filled. I thought it was a filled flight so I bought the upgrade. Then after purchase found out it wasn't filled, but it was OK cause the perks were AMAZING!"
Cons: "It was a short flight so not much to say that needs to be better."
Pros: "The flight was great and the process from boarding to take off was wonderful. This was also a rescheduled flight after my other flight was cancelled."
Cons: "The seats cushions. They weren't the best. That's all."
Pros: "The flight attendants on all three of my flights were nice and helpful as well as all the employees at each airport I visited. The food was good and I had a great time."
Pros: "My bags were about 3 pounds heavier than allowed and she let me in with them. The crew is overall very nice and professional."
Pros: "Excellent and courteous cabin crew. United Flight attendants are a surly bunch of weaponized employees that seem to so hate their jobs and/or their airline... but you all know that. Life is too short."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Sat in an exit row with lots of leg room"
Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"
Pros: "It got me to where I was going. Attendants were very good."
Cons: "Long flight delay. Seats were cramped."
Pros: "Good leg room for the seat I selected. Crew was nice."
Cons: "On time for boarding, but over an hour late taking off."
Cons: "My connecting flight was late and they gave my seat away. So I’m not on the flight. Worst of all I was made to feel like it was my fault for being late"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accommodating. I liked that they boarded the back of the plane first. Also liked the updates from the flight attendants of what areas you were flying over at the moment. Was impressed with the landing as the pilot had a nasty crosswind to deal with that rocked the plane pretty good."
Cons: "I've been on a few flights recently with headrest screens for entertainment. This plane did not have that."
Pros: "I paid for seat. Hainan airlines charged me, but told me was not successful. I spent a lot of time and energy on it."
Cons: "At Xian Xiangyang Airport, I was asked to provid a address. They did not know how which is street name and which is city name. I taught them. They scanned with my green card, however, their system could not recognize green card. I was forced to sign an agreement to take all responsibilities if I can not go abroad."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Biscuits kind of gross. Could have skipped water service"
Pros: "- Assigned Seats - Comfortable Leather Seats - Electronic & USB Plugins in the Seat Backs - Free Text Messaging & Movies - Fast, friendly checkin - On Time, Smooth Flight"
Cons: "- Snacks were not conducive to accommodating for food allergies (i.e. wheat free) Just a Bischoff cookie. - Wi-Fi was available but pricy - Food was average"
Cons: "My seat was changed and I had to sit by a baby crying off and on the whole trip...should always let the customer know ahead of time"
Pros: "I'll let you know after we get on the one they pushed us to. Completely unacceptable service."
Cons: "We don't think that we will be flying an airline with such poor management teams in place again."
Pros: "The people did their job with excellence and ease. Made our flight comfortable."
Cons: "There was an unexpected gate change that made us have to run to the other side of the terminal. It would have been nice if the announcements had been just a bit clearer."
Pros: "Staff was awesome"
Pros: "Got me home."
Cons: "Weather and pilot delays kept us in Seattle about an hour and a half longer than we were supposed to be. 1120pm flight actually left at 1am. Tried to find an earlier flight once we knew it was delayed the first time. No other options and then it delayed again. Part of travel I suppose and the crew was nice, just was ready to be home."
Pros: "It was my first time using Alaska, this trip. I liked your airline overall! Clean."
Cons: "On my flight home to Detroit I was seated in the back. The flight attendants did nothing but gossip about other flight attendants (good and bad), their home life,etc. One rammed me with the cart & their body, woke me up, didn't even apologize. Just felt it was rude. I pay for my flight. I was trying to rest on my 4 hour flight before I had to tend to daughter who had cancer, I need the rest. And for what I paid, I should be able to. Not listen to Alaska's drama within."
Pros: "Liked the free entertainment app"
Pros: "Great customer service; comfy plane."
Pros: "It was a pleasant enough flight. Planes are just very crowded and cramped these days, so not really Alaska's fault."
Pros: "We loved the nonstop flight."
Cons: "Not much in directions/instructions. Waited in check in line only to be directed to another kiosk to print our paperwork, then wait in line again. Would have gone smoother if there were signs telling that."
Cons: "crowded with no room to sit anywhere and couldn't hear announcements outside immediate area. Immigration process too lengthy and almost missed flight with 2 2/12 layover in Seattle."
Cons: "Was disappointed that my bag went to another location (Eugene?) Can get it til tomorrow morning and I have a conference to attend and no clothes..!"
Pros: "The plane was modern and comfortable, including the adjustable side wings on the headrests. In flight free wifi and entertainment was a wonderdul way to pass the time. Crew was so friendly. Flights on time and luggage retrieval was very speedy."
Pros: "The plane felt new and was comfy. Crew was nice and the flight was overal pleasant"
Cons: "They gathered passengers before the gate to check for passports. Thought that was a strange way to do that. Once in the plane not even a snack or a beverage was offered and I was sitting in first class. No entertainment either."
Pros: "Easy flight. Boarding was fine and the crew were friendly enough. The steward didn't come and see me much and I think I had one little snack and one beverage."
Cons: "No entertainment but I didn't really expect it on such a short flight."
Cons: "we switched seats and they charged us 127$ dollars and the seats were the same as every seat, and we didn't even get offered a beverage. so what exactly did I pay for? I demand a refund."
Pros: "Boarded and left on time. Short flight so I can't speak to the food or entertainment offerings. Crew was pleasant although probably at the end of a long work day. This is no small thing for people who must deal with the public all day in a small space. It was appreciated!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Nice quick and efficient hop."
Cons: "Of the 4 my flights between SFO and SEA in the last 3 weeks exactly none departed on time."
Pros: "Attentive staff. Clean and smooth flight."
Cons: "Again wish Alaska offered complimentary meals at the price we pay for a ticket but understandable! Somewhat clean and slow to board."
Pros: "Overall the options & attendants were good"
Cons: "One of the attendants wasn't so nice. Watching her pour drinks, one would be full 's one half, she would have her favorites sort of speak. Attitude. Of those who had the half full glasses asked for more, the attitude came out, she would give them more with a snip. Of course those others she would gladly with a smile. I checked my suitcase in as we had a 'full flight' & never got my $20 voucher. Yet there was plenty of overhead space that I saw. So that was a waste of time on both counts."
Pros: "don't know if it was the time of the year but there was more open seats which meant we weren't crowded going to Seattle and coming back home to SLC. Great assistance, nice people, smooth flight."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Boarded early because of disability, crew unable to assist in placing carry-on in overhead bin (bad back, medical reason or other excuses). Intermittent "rough flight" Lavatory - not flushed when entered, reported to crew. Problem ?"
My overall review score is scored negative because of the horrendous entertainment experience. The movies were so glitchy as I to make them unwatchable. Also, I couldn’t figure out how where to put the audio jack so I had to ask the crew. I’m a VP of Technology and it take me 15 minutes just to get the WiFi access. What I see is that there is no bandwidth for the passengers. Having no food on a 7 am flight other than some junk that I need to buy and isn’t worth the trouble, shows how far this industry has fallen over the years.
Cons: "Nothing... great flight, uncrowded flight, plenty of extra seats to stretch out. Seat were very comfy and spacious which I loved even got a full can of soda unlike the usual half a cup and done lol. Would definitely fly Jet Blue again and prefer also. Way better than the other carriers."
Pros: "MINT CLASS is amazing"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I had significant delays on both the flight to Logan & the flight back to Charlotte."
Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"
Pros: "Seat fine. Crew fine. Good communication"
Cons: "I don’t like fees piled up fees. I’d rather pay once."
Pros: "crew was great."
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late with lame excuse. tray tables disgusting. felt unclean. cookies tasted gross. pa system not working. live flight not working either"
Pros: "Missed my connection"
Cons: "Making it to Charlotte"
Pros: "Crew was nice and accommodating. Plenty of leg room in regular cabin. Good entertainment options.?"
Cons: "We waited in the runway for 2 hours after landing. Not the airlines fault however completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew was great, seat very comfy with good legroom."
Pros: "Everyone was boarded early so we departed early. Quick flight with pleasant flight attendants and nice snacks."
Cons: "The desk agent in Boston could be a little more pleasant."
Pros: "Not too full of a flight"
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew was great!"
Pros: "Sleeping in"
Cons: "Sleeping in longer"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Tv did not work on a 4 hour 40 minute flight."
Pros: "Smooth ride great service"
Pros: "Crew was nice. legroom seemed a little better than other domestic flights."
Cons: "You have to pay extra to sit in the exit row and there was no one in the entire row. Isn’t that a safery issue? Also, what really made me mad, instead of printing our boarding passes at the kiosk we went to a person (husbend had questions about Precheck) and she made us buy return tickets right then, on JetBlue. We had not decided on our return and wanted to leave it open. Can she do that? If not, I would like my money back."
Cons: "There was a 1 1/2 hour delay in taking off."
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight is so much delayed. The flight attendent seemed not happy about me with a two year old, which makes traveling with a kid so unpleasant. When my kid asked to go to restroom, it seemed that we’re troulesome. My mom missed the water when they gave out drinks, but they did not come back for us. When I went to the back to ask for my mom, they said they’re cleaning up already."
Pros: "Friendly staff and a smooth takeoff and landing. All I could ask for. This was the 1st time that I flew JetBlue and I was impressed."
Cons: "The middle seat but that was probably my fault."
Pros: "I've been flying budget airlines for so long that I was almost shocked to fly an airline that actually cares about its passengers! I kid you not, when they offered coffee to all passengers, I was so sure they would charge us I turned it down. Then, I noticed no one else was paying for it. The next time free snacks and drinks came around, I made sure to grab some! I also appreciated the few extra inches of leg room in every row. Being 6'3", not many planes are designed with your comfort in mind. I fit fairly comfortably in a non-emergency row seat. Last time I flew to Baltimore for work, I had a terrible experience with a different airline. It was $200 less expensive than most airlines, but I ended up paying more in baggage fees and seats. It was only a 1 hour flight and My boss said, "Cheap things usually cost you more, in money, time, and emotion" and nothing has been truer. I always assumed that flights were always unpleasant experiences. Now, I know better."
Cons: "The seats, while having more than average leg room, still weren't very comfortable. Not that I'm expecting a luxury experience while flying economy, but I felt as though the headrest was farther back than average. I can usually fall asleep on a plane and wake up without neck pain, but I really struggled to even figure out a relaxing position this time around. I also did not know that JetBlue did not serve meals on cross-country flights. Or, on any flights for that matter. Had I known, I probably would've picked up a breakfast sandwich before boarding."
Pros: "I enjoyed the comfort once boarded and flight attendants warm welcome"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours late. Was supposed to leave at 10pm and left at 1:13 am!! Customer service at jetblue kept lying about the aircrafts whereabouts and crew. They barely gave us updates, and at one point once everyone started asking questions and getting upset, they disappeared from the desk for an hour at least. The crew was late, there was no food, customer service had quite an inappropriate attitude, and tvs on the plane barely worked,"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and I never received notification. I got to the airport for a 4:10 flight to find out it was delayed until 6:15 and we didn’t board until after 6:30. Poor communication to passengers. Once on the plane the headphone jack didn’t work because something was lodged inside of it."
Pros: "Jet Blue know how to make everything right"
Pros: "Very smooth ride, only a little bit of turbulence here and there but nothing to write home about. Crew was also extremely professional and friendly. For my first time flying solo, they were amazing."
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking. My entire row couldn't change the channels at all so we were stuck watching the same movie on repeat. Couldn't even get to the map to see how the flight was progressing. WiFi also kept going in and out every 3-5 minutes. Knew this was to be expected over Canadian airspace, but the rest of the time was unbelievable."
Pros: "The crew members were great- really friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Turbulence. But like... nobody can make that stop so basically it was perfect"
Pros: "On-time departures ....love it!!!"
Pros: "everything was good except that I didn’t like to pay for blanket"
Cons: "to pay for blanket"
Cons: "Made it to my destination 2 hours later."
Cons: "Luggage claim was not correct. We were given wrong carrousel number. Our luggage was at carrousel #6, but we were directed toward carrousel #2, even the help desk person was saying “luggage would come to carrousel 2”. It was a big hassle. Fortunately, my next connecting flight is after 6 hours."
Pros: "while I did not partake my seat mate was using the internet to a play a game on his phone. He invited me to join so his use of the internet made the short flight ok."
Pros: "On time, ease of boarding, airline friendly staff"
Pros: "Very good flight, Love the size of plane and the comfortable seat, the TV's on the back of the seats were great."
Pros: "Crew and flights are very good"
Cons: "our Baggage is mishandled and some of the items inside are damaged and lost couple checked in baggage"
Cons: "Normally I love Jet Blue but we were delayed first for three hours. The only reason I even knew was because I asked someone if I was at the right gate because it didn't state it was a JetBlue gate anywhere. Then we were delayed two subsequent times for a maintenance issue and a gas issue. That didn't inspire any confidence whatsoever. We were also told we would be receiving a flight credit which I have yet to see."
Pros: "Plane departed early and arrived 40 minutes early. Well done"
Cons: "Prefer BLUE Chips rather than cheese x AND usually they call for VETERANS to board before the start of general boarding. This is the first time Jet Blue DID NOT extend that courtesy"
Pros: "great flight attendants"
Cons: "very warm in on the plane"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable (an Airbus A320). Entertainment system adequate. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Two dogs in cabin. They were mostly well behaved. A group of six children loosely supervised by a couple of adults. The children were allowed to wreak havoc on the center section of the plane's cabin."
Pros: "TV sets JetBlue apart - except when it doesn't work. Snack choices are bad."
Cons: "No TV; plane was not clean - smelled like the toilet overflowed. And this was the first flight of the day - the plane was parked at the gate for over an hour prior to boarding."
Cons: "The flight gate was changed last minute--only one or two announcements."
Pros: "Direct flight from Boston to Pittsburgh, leg room, friendly staff."
Pros: "The staff, the service and the overall flight experience!!! Best flight ever1"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Seats very confortable and spacious. Attendants attentive and discrete. No hidden costs."
Pros: "Boarding, crew, bathrooms, entertainment, smoothness of flight, wifi"
Cons: "Always hope for more than water and pretzels, but those days are gone I guess."
Cons: "Our tvs were broken"
So uncomfortable, no food. And one of the flight attendants was rude.
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilots too."
Cons: "The audio and video at my seat did not work correctly."
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Pros: "Delayed boarding but made up for lost time in the air"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Cons: "No mechanical failures or delays would be nice"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Pros: "this is the airline"
Cons: "sat on the tarmac for 3 hours because the pilot was late."
Cons: "Better allergy aware food."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Cons: "The crew members were very rude and they called me an IDIOT!! Yes they did because the forced me to check my carry on bag and i didnt want they are racists"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours- was just sitting in the plane for couple hours before it took away"
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Cons: "Stood by as people blocked aisle during boarding, making snide comments. Instead, the two should have assisted & encouraged the passengers to step out of the aisle & move along. Was very cold hit call light fir blanket. No response for 10 min so went to the bs k of plane where the crew was chatting & eating. When I asked about blanket, they didn’t look fir any & said they didn’t have any unopened. Upon leaving big plane, I saw a stack of about 5 packaged blankets in the front. Just rude & lazy older crew. Time for a different job fir them"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Cons: "insufficient overhead luggage space"
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: "Direct flight, on time, friendly crew, smooth flight"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Pros: "the service in general very nice"
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Cons: "Not supplying headphones Crew not to helpful, one unpolite Refreshments ridiculous"
Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."
Cons: "Missed our connection. Spent the night in Minneapolis. Luckily we had no urgent reason to get home to."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "Free first checked bag, comfy seats"
Cons: "Would have liked more movie selection"
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Pros: "The entertainment system worked well and was able to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "It's very cramped seating. They started boarding by rows but then gave up. Crew are nice."
Pros: "Friendly crew, on time"
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "That we got home. Delta was apologetic but it would be nice if you didn't get stuck for hours touching and looking at the grime left by others."
Cons: "Too bad the attitude of one crew member wrecked it for her coworkers but this can happen. Sorry for Delta and pasengers. The plane was disgusting, filthy, miserable. Dirty trays for more than one in our party. The lavatory on starboard side was a wreaking urine splattered mess before the plane took off. Come on airlines. Take your profits and at least clean your crappy old planes if not replace them."
Cons: "Late flight, minimal beverage service....on a four hours on a plane one would expect at least a second pass through the cabin with water"
Pros: "Crew was terrific! Nice folks. Courteous and professional"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat and ended up next to a bulkhead with no window. I can get claustrophobic so concerning and Frustrating! Also, unlike the trip to Minneapolis where the Wi-Fi worked great the Wi-Fi was awful on the return trip and made watching a movie challenging."
Pros: "The crew was generally nice to me and my emotional support animal (dog). The people checking in my bag were friendly."
Cons: "If you are traveling with an emotional support/service animal-make sure to include the breed and approximate weight of the animal in the "additional details" on the online form you have to fill out. They don't ask those questions but then need it to process the request. Call times are 90+ mins."
Pros: "They didn’t let me on I want a refund this made me miss my birthday party in Chicago thanks for ruining 25"
Pros: "Seats on Sun country are ok but I don’t expect much for the relatively inexpensive flight! Crew were very efficient, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Movie options"
Pros: "Flight attendant Susan was wonderful. Very friendly, professional, and helpful."
Pros: "Quick entry. One flight attendant was very friendly."
Cons: "First class upgrade was suspect. Seats were all visibly torn. Very busy ailes to bathrooms for first class. One flight attendant was a bit rude. Other attendant was very nice. But didn’t feel upgrade was at all worth the money. Also had to try three times online and twice in person for upgrade."
Cons: "Very cramped. The guy in front of me reclined his seat and I could barely move."
Cons: "SC recently changed their baggage policy and the line at 6:00a to check a bag was from one end of the terminal to the other. I’m sure they’ll get it figured out at some point but they had to pull people on flights leaving within the next hour from the lines in order to get flights out on time. Terrible experience, no apology, no explanation."
Pros: "Fast and friendly"
Cons: "Bathroom in the back was leaking water on the floor, and there were a lot of young kids on board... minor stuff"
Cons: "The seats are too close together. When I tried to eat my salad my head bumped into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "They delayed the flight (very first one of the morning) by over an hour, caused me to miss my connecting flight, which meant I had to stay overnight and take another flight. Extremely frustrating as they did nothing to help reschedule or reimburse. Use old planes, which don't have entertainment or outlets. Overall, very frustrated with the experience. I don't want to fly sun country again! (The flight on sun country going was terrible as well)"
Pros: "Good prices, nice staff"
Cons: "Way too hot on the plane. THE WHOLE TIME."
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. No bags got lost. Were happy with having our carry on luggage checked for free."
Cons: "Got hungry mid-flight (4hr trip). Would have purchased food but chose not to because options were poor and expensive."
Pros: "Friendly gate staff Friendly flight attendants Seats bigger than Spirit Airline's Just $15 for an upgraded 6th row window seat Accepted my carry-on bag free, without measuring the the wheels as part of it's measurement. Note: Spirit always accepted this same carry-on for many flights over the years, but didn't on this same trip to my location. ( This Sun Country trip was on the return flight. )"
Cons: "Really nothing"
Pros: "I was seated close to the front so deboarding was quick. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Had a middle seat in the row in front of an emergency exit so the seat did not recline. Seat wasn't all that comfortable to start. Fat guy sat next to me so I really only had 9/10ths of a seat."
Cons: "I don't like hearing that Suncountry is going to be an airline that charges a fee for everything like Spirit airlines. I heard that this will begin as of January 1st. Suncountry is a great airline. Why would you change that? It's disappointing."
Pros: "There wasn't entertainment in my flight, and I didn't buy any of the food,so I really can't rate that. However, the flight itself was fine, nothing great, nothing bad."
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "Long flight ( 5 hrs) not even a complimentary snack offered"
Cons: "Plane was an hour late in leaving. Seats crowded and only middle seat available, We spent $15. for preferred seating for my husband and then none of us got to sit together. Nothing for snack and offered drinks once."
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: "The price was right"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to select my seat when I booked the flight and I wasn’t able to check in and get my boarding pass online. Then the flight was delayed almost an hour."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Both flights delayed due to air traffic control (too small of an airline?), vague threatening announcements about stopping all boarding unless people came forward to check their overhead luggage, horribly uncomfortable seats and far too loud, obnoxious PA system."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic the captain kept us updated"
Cons: "Row 11 not reclining was a bit uncomfortable I ordered a prosecco it was warm. I like the fact I got a whole can of pop not just a glass"
Cons: "I was not able to use tsa precheck as a passenger on sun country. The ticketing agent could not get the tsa precheck to print on boarding pass. I've never had this issue with any other airline."
Pros: "A surprisingly good cheese burger ($5),cheerful crew, and on-time departure and arrival. Given my low expectations for American air travel, I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "As always, the seats are too small, the overheads too full, and the staff a bit harried. I really shouldn't fault the airline for any of that."
Pros: "Good ticket price. Direct flight. Able to change from assigned aisle seat to request for a window seat shortly before takeoff."
Cons: "When I checked in on the internet, there were no economy seats available. I had to pay $15 for a "preferred" seat, which was an aisle seat on row 7, near the front of the economy section. I was told by an employee that the only economy seats were the middle seats, that aisle and window seats were preferred seats. I was told the plane was full and they could not change my "preferred" seat although I did see empty seats on the plane after takeoff. Also bathroom facilities were poor - only two in the back for the entire economy seating. And the aisles were narrow."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew and on time departure and arrival during busy holiday travel time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Website to check in said no sears left except seats where had to pay additional $15-25 so had to get boarding pass at airport...at airport magically got seats that were showing as not available? Is this a scam to get people to pay more $?"
Pros: "Nice people, easy boarding, very friendly attendants on board."
Cons: "can the seats get any closer together? I'm skinny and I couldn't cross my legs without sticking them into the isle first."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable and too close to restrooms."
Pros: "on time and no problem getting seats I wanted"
Cons: "Given unsafe seat. Had to change at last minute prior to landing, by a very abrupt flight attendant. Seat should have been red lined. Another passenger where I was moved to had a similar experience. My flight attendant told me that I should have reported the issue earlier. How was I to know that any seatback that goes up 2 inches short of vertical is bad. Am I to know the airline or FAA rules?"
Pros: "Can't really complain re: a direct flight for less than other airlines charge for a flight with layovers. Large, comfortable plane with good food. $25 for an exit row seat was worthwhile as I had 4 rows(!) to myself. Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment. When I chose my seat online, I was made to believe it was basically a full flight (only ~3 seats were available and they were all middle seats) so I spent $25 on an exit row seat. Once we boarded, it became apparent that there were a TON of open seats and I would have been able to get an aisle. Kind of sketchy for them to misrepresent the seating like that."
Pros: "The flight itself was great. I had no issues there. The crew was great and I was comfortable."
Cons: "I repeatedly had issues with their website and I couldn't checkin online or update any of my information, even when I called them. I also had to connect flights at the airport and I asked the airline beforehand if I had enough time, as I flew into a different terminal. They said that I did, but I almost missed my flight, even though I had two hours. The signage was poor as MSP, which isn't Sun Country's fault, however they made the transfer sound easier than it was."
Cons: "I was blockaded from access to the bathroom(s). The first class dragon forbade access to anyone but 1st class and the rear bathrooms were blockaded bt workers handing out drinks. Very tough on us 75+ crowd.We don't get much time from urge to crisis."
Cons: "I felt like a sardine in a can. Seriously can you make seating more comfortable? It's torture while first class is treated like royalty. The coach seats were hard as rocks and tiny. I hate flying because airline companies treat people who can't afford the over priced first class seats like cattle. Airlines are greedy. The good price for the flight is great but in the end feeling cramped and getting my legs and arms bumped every time someone walks by is ridiculous. GET COMFORTABLE SEATING IN COACH DAMN IT!!"
Pros: "A good price for non-stop flight. It flies out of terminal 2 which has easier access than terminal 1 at the MSP airport. The afternoon fly out time worked well with my schedule."
Cons: "The seats could always be a little larger."
Cons: "My departing flight was delayed 1.5 hours and my return flight was delayed approximately 2.5 hours. No explanations were ever given as to why we were delayed. Also, you'd think after being delayed for that amount of time we'd get an apology or some "thanks for your patience" pretzels, but no. Drinks and snacks still come at a price. I won't be flying this airline ever again."
Pros: "Paid more for priority seats roundtrip to find out nothing about it is priority. They boarded our section last. All rows were bparded before rows 4 through 8. What a waste of money. Never flying Sun Country again. Not to mention the flight attendants repeatedly bump into my wife by reaching over her to serve people in the row in front and behind us. So rude..."
Pros: "The plane was on time. The cabin was clean. Seats were fine. All but one of the crew were helpful and kind. Excellent flight with a wonderful pilot(s)."
Cons: "One crew member insisted on her own HERDING of us all in line for the restroom. She treated us all like preschoolers. We were already working out the problem, when she took it upon herself to yell loudly at us all to make room for one person. She sheepishly explained away her actions. Horrifying. I have never felt so degraded on a plane. I can barely imagine, how she would have reacted, if any of us had approached her in the same tone and manner."
Pros: "Flight was full, checked out bags at gate. Really don't mind doing that. Got earlier seating after all the other special seating."
Cons: "Tried online check in day before, only specialty seats were available for $15 more. Nothing special about seats, only ones left. Had no choice, booked those gave CC details. Paid $30 more, but obviously no choice. Got to airport, tried to print boarding passes, had to choose seats again. Ones from day before did not take. Thankfully, not charged. Frustrating though."
Pros: "I got home safely and (more or less) on time."
Cons: "Flight attendants were mostly rude. They nickel and dime the passengers ($8 or more for "entertainment modules"), aisles were very narrow; I felt like a sardine. Bathrooms were not kept clean and getting to them was a challenge because the crew wouldn't let us wait in the galley and you weren't supposed to crowd the aisle...."
Pros: "Loved the fact that you can check your carry-ons for free at check-in on full flights. We had planned to carry-on, but it was nice to have a free hand through the airport."
Cons: "The website function to check in ahead of time and pre-purchase checked bags did not work on either leg of our flight, so we had to pay $5 more at the airport. On our flight the other direction, they honored the online price. I was traveling back with a friend's wedding dress as my only carry-on, but had to fold it into a bag to fit their carry-on regulations. I could not hang it, as there were no closets."
Pros: "Price was good"
Cons: "No televisions and most airlines have them for trips across the entire USA"
Pros: "The price ............"
Cons: "Fake smiles and discrimination............"
Pros: "I loved the incredibly cheap upgrades to the exist row. I paid only $10 to upgrade online the exit row had tons of legroom."
Cons: "There were no entertainment options, which is fine because I just slept the whole way."
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Later departure"
Pros: "Color of the seating, the green upholstery gave it a cheering pop of color Appreciate being able to have a can of pop, with a glass of ice"
Cons: "Hand held movie device, 12 min. Into the movie it froze... Flight attendant was awesome at reimbursing me. Did not enjoy any food, Should have NA option in your survey."
Pros: "The general attitude of the flight crew was great. Warm and kind, fun and full of smiles."
Cons: "The picnic pack was the only thing I could eat and was told it was no longer an option but still on the menu. Ended up not getting anything and was not thrilled by it."
Pros: "More legroom than the bigger airlines, comfier seats, reasonable price. Great experience overall"
Cons: "The ONLY complaint I have was there were no free snacks and it was a 3.5 hour flight...but I did get a whole can of soda for free so that was nice"
Pros: "I suppose we’re grateful for “free entertainment on your own device”."
Cons: "Robust entertainment on a seat-back screen."
Pros: "The space between the seats"
Cons: "Seats space"
Pros: "The early boarding and charging ports accesbility?"
Cons: "Just one snack option maybe a few more comps. Also it didn’t have any info on the new airplane. The ride was nice."
Cons: "Was late. Almost missed me next flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice as was the meal"
Cons: "Panasonic Wi-Fi does not come close to the value GoGo provides."
Pros: "Plane had a modern feel with exception of entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment on the back of the screen. This is 2018, who doesn’t have that??? Sit length was a little small. I’m 5’10 and barely fit."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment and drinks service"
Cons: "Very tight for space."
Pros: "Plane is clean. Well kept"
Cons: "Wifi. It terrible"
Pros: "They got another flight for us"
Cons: "4 hour delayed"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient the flight left on time in spite of rain. Lots of air traffic departing JFK and we were delayed in the take off queue for an hour. The captain made up time and arrived Paris almost as scheduled. Food was very good for coach class and it was a hot meal."
Cons: "The coach seats even on this 6.5 hour flight were uncomfortable. The seat backs have no support. The aircraft was an older 767 and did not have entertainment screens on the seat backs. Thus there were no games or other interactive programs. It had the overhead monitors for movies. Hopefully they will modify that plane soon."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and it was nice to have a complimentary meal and wine. We landed very early."
Cons: "This plane has not been updated since before I was born. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and there was no in seat entertainment, just overhead screens. I was never able to get the WiFi to work. There were no power outlets, and we were never offered headphones, eye masks or ear plugs. I expected more from American since our 2hr flight from Orlando to JFK had working WiFi, power outlets and in-seat video monitors."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty!"
Pros: "staff was very nice. boarding was on time and efficient"
Cons: "no screens to watch movies. the plane was delayed for a repair and we had to sit on the plane for two hours before we took off. they should of let us off the plane during this time. because of this the flight felt longer. there was no choice of movie because there was only the screen in the isle. the food was horrible for dinner. the smell made me feel sick and the taste was worse. a sandwich might of been better than that disgusting hot food."
Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Cons: "Very old plane. No personal entertainment. Very basic service."
Pros: "The comfort seats"
Cons: "Flight was oversold and that caused a delay of over 1 1/2hr."
Pros: "On time good service"
Pros: "much room. great entertainment. great crew"
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Pros: "It got me there safely without delays."
Cons: "Food isn't good. the connections can be offered in a much better and time efficient way but they were not. I had to change airports in NYC with a 7-hr layover while they could've flown me to JFK (there was available flights). Same thing with coming back, a long layover in Texas."
Cons: "Food was 100% inedible, I didn’t even bother with the breakfast because the main meal was really really disgusting No in seat entertainment The electrical outlet was not turned in for that section of aircraft"
Pros: "I'm gluten free & I don't eat pork so I would like a gluten free no pork option!"
Pros: "the check in went very well and the crew seemed efficient."
Cons: "the food was not good. it was not hot. the sound system was not good. the plane's screens were too far away. the earphones were a joke and did not fit well in the ear....plus no crew member came around offering them-I had to ask for them."
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "Flight departed approximately 5 hours late, excuses given by employees didn't make sense."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "After arriving at the airport more than 2 hours early and at the gate 30 min prior to departure, American Airlines never called last boarding call, not our names. We sat at the gate, not knowing they had boarded, and tje plane departed unbeknownst to us. Had to stand in the rebooking line for 1.5 hours before speaking to a rep who told us we couldn't rebook our international flight. Had to request a supervisor, who thankfully after an additional hour was able ro rebook us."
Cons: "3 hour delay on international flight from JFK made for a very long day."
Pros: "Reserved seating at time of boiling so all 5 of us sitting together."
Cons: "When we got our boarding passes we were all sitting in different places. I cannot understand how you sit a 3 and 4 year old away from their parents. Shocking oversight."
Pros: "The associates at the terminal, who faced long delays and concerned and frustrated customers were patient and gracious. Following prescribed procedures they made announcements, apologized and provided snacks for the long delay."
Cons: "Having to wait for an extended time in the terminal. Delays turned my 10 hour journey into 24 hours."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
Pros: "What I enjoyed about this flight is that I eventually made it to Chicago."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times - blamed on Chicago ATC. The food offered was not suitable for First Class - there was chicken and vegetarian option. The FA was rather slow in serving and clearing trays. She was not interested in going around and asking for refills - when I inquired about it at dessert time, she didn't come back for 15 minutes and I had to ring the call button - she informed me they didn't have my drink of choice, so it was OK for her not to come back and tell me that. Service was terrible in First Class. American should seriously do something about that."
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "I have been flying American Airlines for years and never had a big issue. The crew was better some times than others but I usually travel at night and try to get some sleep. Obviously, I like the newer planes and hope that the fleet will eventually be replaced entirely."
Pros: "why you have send email for survey I cancelled my trip do to emergency/ for sorry really sorry,"
Pros: "That we amazingly finally made it to Rome."
Cons: "Almost everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Literally, every plane we were supposed to fly on had something wrong with it. We were delayed for hours, missed a connecting flight, had to take another flight which was delayed even longer, they had to find another plane entirely because something was wrong with THAT one. Once we finally got on the plane, we sat on the runway for an hour because there was some kind of TSA-related issue (awesome) and then the airport wouldn't let any planes take off inexplicably. We got to our destination 12 hours later than we were supposed to. But to make up for it, American gave us $10 food vouchers to use in the airport in the middle of the night..."
Pros: "Plane was clean boarding was fine."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"
