I made it home.

We sat on the tarmac for over two hours in temps of 90 degrees. Requested water and fight attendent Bridgette told me she was busy and trying to manage everything. After 1st class got offered their third round of drinks and food, my son attempted to get flight attendant Ed's attention but he refused to acknowledge him. He went to Bridgette who gave water with a hair in it. The crew was unpleasant and did not greet or say good bye. So sad.

Going through security. Tthe line was.long but moving rather swiftly.

Sun Country...never again. First I was supposed to get an eticket which I never got NO KIOSK! I had to get on a line for my boarding pass only to learn that I had to pay extra for my carry-on. It only weighed 16 lbs. I get on the plane...NO SCREENS. I bought my headphones this time ready to watch a movie. Ooh and snacks are not free. You get your choice of water, juice, coffee, soda, or tea for free. Nothing like my last trip with a DIFFERENT airline which I enjoyed.

Quick boarding. Direct flight.

Super cramped seating. Definitely had a child’s feet all over my seat the entire flight. Flight attendant seemed super annoyed to be there. Guess I should have read that you have to pay for a carryon or pay to check your bag. Which is actually odd because it costs less to check your bag than have it with you.

I didnt like much. It got me from point a to point b safely and that's the only positive thing I can say.

My luggage was lost on a direct flight from Dallas to Las Vegas. There was no urgency in finding my bag and it has been nearly impossible to get anyone on the phone. 4 days after my flight and we still have no bag. We had to buy all new clothes, toiletry items and luggage while on our trip. Thankfully we had enough funds to do so or else we would have had to wear the same clothes for 4 days! The flights were late both ways. The overall experience was absolutely horrible.

There was a cute male flight attendant with a man bun. Wish they provided snacks tho. Other than that, it was your standard flight, pretty efficient and uneventful.

You had to pay for headphones, so I had to pull down my hand luggage mane sidt thru all my belongings to find headphones. That was annoying. Wish there were snacks and that I didn’t have to pay $25 to bring my luggage.

There were no headphones available on the flight, the seatbelt signs were half working, half not, and when I tried to use my own headphones- the jack in my seat was not operable. On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes.

The delayed of this flight. No explanation was provided. After boarding they decided to “fix” two of the luggage cabinets. And they fix nothing, they juat put tape on it. This flight delayed was three hour of nothing. My entertainment (screen) was damaged.

The flight attendants were very communicative and helped get us all boarded in time

The stress of possibly not getting off the ground in time and having a very long layover then taxing at the gate for over 30 minutes was frustrating

Love that Jet Blue now flies out of St. Paul looking forward to flying it more often. I also live in WPB and really hope it will fly from NYC to WPB during the winter more often so my children who live in NYC can come more often!!

I liked that the flight itself was smooth.

I hated sitting right next to the bathrooms. I didn't like the bait and switch of riding Virgin rather then Alaska. I didn't like that you couldn't buy headphones for the entertainment and that there were no games for kids to play as a part of the inflight menu. I hated that only regular drinks were free with no free snacks. Also the inflight crew wasn't that friendly or attentive. I hated the inflight safety video as this huge musical number.

The ticket price was amazing. It made the negatives acceptable. Friendly but scarce attendants. Although there was no electronic boarding pass for my phone, the printed one did contain useful information.

I was unable to find out how the $9 Club could save on baggage fees. No answer from online help. I thought baggage fee would be in line with American. But NO it was twice as expensive. Next time I will wear camping clothes and pack everything in my personal carry on. Web site is difficult to navigate.
