Leave that one out on the tarmac or what??? Doesn't matter what "AGREMENT" Alaska Air has with any airlines. Make you go through TSA again and there isn't enough time to catch a flight 60 minutes later. Much less get bags and check in again. I"m look for a different air carrier. Alaska Air is a mediocre airline and it's okay for them. That landing included a few bounces. The pilot came over the com talking about a great landing. I'd hate to see one of his bad landings."

Pros: "The food order concept"
Cons: "No food, not even snacks, despite the long fligjt"

Cons: "At boarding, when overhead bins are full, you cannot force passengers to check their bags if they had planned not to.

Cons: "All went well"

Cons: "Food. Sandwich was terrible. Couldn’t figure what kind of of filling it had. Bread hard and difficult to bite. Not enough restrooms. Aisle is narrow. When waiting for restroom behind row 35(?) they are standing and waiting and bumping into people sitting in rows 28+."

Cons: "Just one thing...I couldn't seem to recline my seat, but I didn't say anything about it. This isn't anyone's fault, but for someone my age, sitting in one location for 11 hours is a pain. Also, my one check-in bag was literally the last bag on the baggage carousel... just my bad luck."

Pros: "I love"

Pros: "Nothing. I slept 70 percent of the way but these two adults ad their brat kid kept kicking seats and the father was the worse.it wasn’t a horrible trip but I think the father was the oddest. He kept changing his seat next to mine. But overall I slept 70 percent of the time."

Cons: "Sitting next to the unpleasant lady in my row. Some passengers are rude but we’re coming from New York, so...."

Cons: "The seats are too small. There was also no way to update the seat, to pay for a closer seat, nothing. The booking should have allowed me to do this."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly!"
Cons: "You had to pay to watch movies, like really? It's an 11 hour flight. Not to mention, the last row on the plane next to bathroom is never a good thing. The food was spaghetti and meatballs, not what I'd call Hawaiian food."

Cons: "Wish flight also available out of Liberty-Newark airport which is closer to home"

Pros: "Staff very helpful"

Cons: "Not much food or snacks for such a long flight Other than that it was excellent."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"

Pros: "There is a port for a USB, so you can bring a device? But then, you have to prepare your entertainment in advance which is an inconvenience...."
Cons: "The complementary food was garbage. I am not asking for a 5 star meal from Roy's; I am asking that the food be somewhat edible. The paid snack options were few and there we no healthier choices. You have to pay for all of films, games, and movies. No WiFi on the plane. The display had issues when I tried to turn it off - it would randomly come on. The volume for the "advertisements" were ridiculously louder. In fact, they were louder than the safety announcements from the staff! Gotta pay $25 for a checked bag."

Cons: "I was not in the system for my flight so therefore i didnt have a ticket. My trip was round trip and for some reason i was not marked as being on the original flight from honolulu to jfk so they canceled my return flight."

Pros: "It was a long 12h flight from NY to HI, I requested change of seat. They arranged it so so got one in empty row since I were by myself. Food is good too!"

Pros: "The flight was good, and the flight attendants were efficient."
Cons: "The portions of food were small. The entertainment package for $7.99 was very dated and limited in options."

The meal that was included on our flight was good especially since you would be paying extra on other Airlines."
Cons: "Don't forget your earbuds or earphones."

Cons: "Passenger have to pay for every single entertainment."

Pros: "Hope you would continue your practice of onboard food offering services. That was great!"

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Cons: "This is possibly the worst airplane food ive ever had. Ever. The chicken didn't look nor taste like chicken and it was in some weird green chickpea sauce?? Very unpleasant."

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?"

Pros: "Really liked the plan"

Pros: "Everything up to departure. Sat in line for almost an hour."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."

Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Cons: "Well, you could have felt that when there is an unprecedented pandemic illness and federal guidance against travel that you don't doubly penalize customers who (1) cannot travel due to the extraordinary public health crisis of COVID 19 and, (2) are devastated that he cannot celebrate his best friend's 40th birthday despite being the thing he looked forward to for months and would love to use a travel voucher in the future when this whole thing eventually blows over. Imagine what your company could gain by being good."

Pros: "New plane, very comfortable. Crew handled weather delay well."
Cons: "EWR Terminal B3 has the worst TSA capacity I’ve seen in a long time - understaffed, no TSA PreCheck (& no option to go through a different security check point), resulting in very slow lines from inadequately shepherded inexperienced international travelers. I won’t take Sun Country again thru’ EWR"

Cons: "Less time on the tarmac. Spent at least 40 min, 20 each side just sitting."

Cons: "No inflight entertainment. No free snack. $40 for a carry on!"

Pros: "Price was right and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment and a real lack of food for a 5 hour flight."

Pros: "The crew were awesome! Was comfortable"
Cons: "The USB ports were not charging"

Pros: "It landed early."
Cons: "Some complimentary snacks. No extra fee for online check-in. It’s cheaper to you to allow people to check themselves in online than make people check in at the desk that was woefully understaffed. Made it a terrible experience for all"

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

Cons: "Hand carry shouldn't be charged as other flights."

Pros: "The crew was ill mannered and rude"
Cons: "Just do use Sun Country"

Pros: "Liked the fare"
Cons: "Crew not very welcoming—when boarding, no greeting, no eye contact; after being seated, crew member tersely asked to see my ticket...no please, no explanation, no thank you. In cabin crew did not make us feel safe , secure, cared for. This is the first negative comment I’ve ever posted."

Pros: "was really helpful"
Cons: "need some pastel"

Pros: "Terrible online check in process 10 hour delay!"

Pros: "It was utilitarian and got me from point a to be at a very good price."
Cons: "Smaller seats, no entertainment to speak of. No complimentary snacks."

Cons: "NEVER FLYING SUNCOUNTRY AGAIN"

Pros: "Pricing"
Cons: "Room"

Pros: "Complimentary drinks and comfortable seats"

Cons: "Seats too small."

Pros: "The staff were lovely."

Cons: "Delayed flight, hot airplane until cruising altitude will never fly with this airline."

Cons: "Very rude ticket counter. They wouldn’t allow me to to board even though I showed up an hour, twenty minutes before take-off at their online POSTED terminal BUT they’ve moved (unfortunately no update on their web site). By the time I managed to get from terminal #2 to #5 (around LAX on a busy morning), a half hour later, the counter help wouldn’t even consider issuing me a boarding pass!"

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "No snacks stingy on the drink and carry on baggage fee"

Pros: "The crew was really great! The flight attendants were all very kind, courteous, and entertaining. It was really windy when we landed, so the landing was rough. The captain joked about it. We were seated right behind first class, so we had tons of room. All in all, a good flight"
Cons: "The usual stuff: bag fees, expensive drinks, expensive food options, limited food options. Also, no in flight entertainment."

Cons: "No internet. I needed to work. I didn't even know flights didn't have internet anymore. Uncomfortable seats. Dirty plane. The flight was much too expensive for this."

Pros: "Sun Country Airlines 1. Nice and helpful crew"
Cons: "Sun Country Airlines 1. Crammed like sardines"

Pros: "Slept on flight but my son rented entertainment system and it was satisfactory. Plane left on time and arrived on time."

Cons: "Seats a bit small"

Cons: "We were left at Waco Regional Airport at 1AM and transporation was not arranged util nearly 430 in the morning. There was no sun country staff to assist with travel arrangements. We were abandoned at a closed airport for hours. Eventually, I got the one and only uber still running in waco to drive me at 330am from waco to dallas. There has been no reinbursement of fares or compensation for lost wages, time and the general annoyance that being awake all night long caused. If you would like to know more information, please feel free to contact me via phone 972-765-0570"

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.
