Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew. No delays."
Cons: "Some of the foot Wells are much smaller than other and present a very real problem both for baggage and tall folks. It seems unfair to pay the same price as someone who gets vastly more foot space and the airline is really doing its passengers a disservice by not making it explicitly clear that certain seats are more physically constrained than others. (737 isle and center seats."
Pros: "Entertainment was great"
Cons: "I thought I had reserved an aisle seat but I was in the middle when I boarded."
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable and on time."

Everything was better, the seats were comfier, the tray table was larger, there was a wifi option, complimentary food and drink, much more professional staff, even the plane noise was much quieter and to top everything off we got home over 30 minutes earlier than expected. Alaska is definitely my new preference."
Pros: "I really like Alaska Airlines overall. Their planes are newer, have power outlets at every seat and the oversize luggage compartment make it easier for everyone to fit with their carry on bags. Way more comfortable than their main competitor at our little airport."
Cons: "I got a notice to check in the day before my flight, which is fine except that they had completely changed my flight to a different one with no prior notice. I searched through my email after I got home in case I missed it, but couldn't find anything. I would have appreciated a bit better communication."

Cons: "I didn't like that my first checked bag was $25. I thought it was no charge"

Pros: "free glass of wine"
Cons: "- crowded in emergency row - poor connection time allowance - almost missed my connection to Victoria - plane vey crowded - poor food choices - very long time security clearance, even with Nexus card - so-called free wifi a joke"

Cons: "Delayed our flight, had to buy another hotel night to accommodate and restructure our schedule, but it was pleasant other than that."

Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"
Pros: "The flight entertainment and crew were great. They had a lot of the latest movies available to watch, though I'm not sure you'd be able to watch if you didn't have your own headphones (I did). The crew were friendly and helpful. I got a cold cup of coffee when it should have been hot, and they corrected it immediately."
Cons: "They charge you for everything: sitting in an aisle or window seat ($15); checking one piece of luggage ($25); for food, even on a five hour flight, save for complementary snacks like a granola bar or pretzels. I paid $11 for a tiny sandwich (it fit in the palm of my already small hands). I will definitely get good at the airport next time. It may be just as expensive, but at least it will be filling."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Long wait in hot plane before take off."
Pros: "When we landed and I was able to get off the plane"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclining his sea before take off and the crew not correcting him so I had to which I did. He told the crew "he had the right" Crew refused to correct him because he was on a buddy pass so the rules didn't apply to him."
Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "Smooth. Fast."
Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."
Pros: "One of the male flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "No food was provided, there was a throw up stain on my first flight to Atlanta then on my connecting flight there was crumbs on my table, my boyfriends table did not want to close so that caused discomfort to the person in front of us. Boarding time took a very very long time"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and fast"
Cons: "Seats were cramped"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Nothing to like.."
Cons: "Everything about the flight..."
Pros: "On time and convenience of the connection"
Cons: "Airplanes were a little bit old"
Pros: "plane was farily empty. Who doesn't like that, other than Delta, haha. Nice workers, smooth flight."
Cons: "Delta comfort was very tight. I'm 6 foot tall and my knees were hitting the chair in front of me the whole flight."
Cons: "Check point had only one person working on a holiday weekend made for an extremely long wait"
Cons: "Not real happy with getting charged 25 dollars for a bag when I am MVP with Alaska Airlines, was under impression both airlines are together."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "My flight time was changed multiple times, the final change was not communicated and myself along with other passengers missed the flight. Employees refused refunds, failed to apologize and/or provide a phone number to reach Sun Country. Did not offer to reschedule or assist in finding another flight. Overall seemed unorganized, unhelpful, and common courtesy for customers was not exhibited. Never flying with Sun Country again,"
Pros: "I loved my flight but there was no snack unless you pay for it"
Pros: "Easy and painless. In fact, while I was getting my bag checked at the gate, the Gate CSR noted that there was an aisle seat available and asked if I wanted to move from a middle seat to the aisle. At 6'3", I was very grateful for the ask."
Pros: "Everyone went out of their way smiling in the comment thank you so much"
Cons: "Nothing you're my new go to airline"

Cons: "50 minutes late"
Cons: "I paid for a particular seat next to the escape door on the wing. But they put my wife in the very back seat at the back of the plane."
Pros: "The crew really nice"
Pros: "Friendly crew, flight left and departed on time, good value for the money. Terminal 2 at MSP is really convenient. Can't comment on the food, I didn't eat on the flight. I don't need to be entertained. I will definitely fly Sun Country again."
Cons: "Seats are cramped."
Pros: "We were allowed to free check some carryon bags due to full plane."

Pros: "Flew down Tuesday and back Wednesday - all flights were on time and everything went smooth."
Pros: "For the most part it was okay."

Cons: "It was a cluster"

Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late, but arrived ok."
Pros: "Love that Sun Country is at the smaller terminals with less crowds ! It was a cheap ticket and the flight was fine -- no complaints. It's no frills -- be prepared to pay for anything you want (in flight entertainment, snacks, seats at the front of the plane, etc.) but that's fine with me."
Cons: "Sun Country -- please keep those nasty cheeseburger smells off the plane. If you're going to sell a hot snack, please pick something that won't stink up the plane. The free smell does NOT encourage others to purchase it !"
Pros: "Crew were very nice. I'm sure it was the end of a long day for them, so they were probably ready to be done - more interaction between themselves than the customers."
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable. Too bad that comfort has to be given up for profitability..."
Cons: "Boarding started late, plane left late."
Cons: "First, it took an hour to board the plane. If you loaded back to front this could be alleviated. Then the seats are horrible. Hard, short seated and no room. Paid for a cold cheeseburger. What's up with that? Held on to garbage they refused to take until after we were supposed to prepare for landing and got yelled at to put my tray table up even I had just gotten rid of my garbage. It was rude since some other attendant had just refused to help me. Now I sit here getting gassed by them having opened up the back of the plane while we are still stuck on here."
Pros: "Asked for an aisle seat, if available, at airport. Placed me in Exit row, aisle seat as last available aisle seat. Attendants on board were very nice in asking what I would like to drink. Flight left on time and arrived on time- always a good factor."
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Although seats were assigned when purchasing the tickets, I wasn't able to print boarding passes that allowed my travel companion and I to sit together"
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient."
Pros: "We made it home alive, stewards smiled a lot"
Cons: "No one at desk for check in, then when boarding there was a man standing in the aisle that would not allow me to pass, I had an infant in my arms but he refused to move even after multiple requests. I had to squeeze past him. When plane was fully boarded he started to vomit. He vomited multiple times before we started moving. Steward asked him if he was okay to fly and he did not answer, just nodded a bit. He continued to vomit, was unable to use the bag properly, he appeared highly intoxicated. He vomited into the aisle and all over our shoes and pant legs and carry on bags. We told the stewards who went and grabbed a package of paper towels and shoved them at us. They moved the passengers on the other side of him up to the front of the plane but said nothing to us. No one apologized. Twice we were told our baby was the baby of the year but that was the only remark."
Cons: "Old worn seats with the frame work sticking up. No leg room, seats too narrow and could not move."
Pros: "good pilots"
Cons: "transparency with delays"
Cons: "No wifi option. Flight took off 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Being delayed and disorganization around the need to have more people check their bags"
Pros: "Better leg room than some other airlines. Flight was on time. Let us check our bag at the gate = faster boarding.no food"
Cons: "No food or entertainment, should have a 'not applicable ' rating."
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty so I had room to stretch out and relax with armrest up!"
Cons: "We were late boarding in PHX but no explanation was ever given as to why?"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "The seats were really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great service! Comfortable seat. A+."
Pros: "Friendly customer service. Efficient boarding. Liked being able to board early because I did not require overhead bin space."
Cons: "Complimentary pretzels or other light snack would be nice."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "Flight was late on both going there and coming back."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. I forgot that Sun Country serves cheese burger hamburgers, keep them on the menu."
Cons: "People switching seats prior to take off in the airplane. This needs to be enforced that people need to stay in their assigned seats unless approved by the crew."
Pros: "Price for ticket"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "I got to my desinations on time to and from."
Cons: "The seats were small and uncomfortable. It felt like I was squished into my seat both flights, and that was even being on the aisle. While I don't expect every seat to be made for an obese individual, having enough space in the seats so as not to require scrunching your shoulders every 20 seconds would be appreciated."
Pros: "We had a good flight from Phoenix to Minneapolis."
Cons: "A small snack would be a nice compliment to the beverage."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable flights."
Pros: "Smooth process, direct flight."
Cons: "No peanuts or treat of any kind"

Cons: "not enogh professionalism in same crew members"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful and the flight was smooth and relaxing"

Pros: "The boarbing was easy and fast."
Cons: "Some of us pay for our luggage and we still have to wait for all them people to load there over size bags and wait to get off the plane while they get all there luggage. I thing the people without all that luggage should get off the plane first. The people that bring all there luggage on the plane should be the people that have to pay for luggage."
