Cons: "3 hr delay and had to change gates"

Pros: "Crew was amable and entertainment is good with lots of choicest."

I ended up paying for a 2nd checked bag and leave it at Miami AA baggage services for replacement."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Our layover was originally supposed to be an hour and a half in Phoenix. As we were boarding the plane from Austin to Phoenix, we got a notification that our layover had been delayed an additional 5 hours due to construction at SFO.

Cons: "Stale mini pretzels are not appetizing. There are much better inexpensive alternatives. Yuck."

Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "No food offered. Premium seating that I paid for was so narrow there was no way I could sit next to the person next to me and not have their elbows on me."

Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "Price for a very short notice trip, ease of online booking, very informative staff. Also, able to readjust my seating assignment."

Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."

Pros: "Seats which I choose where very comfortable."
Cons: "Would have like a choice in food severd"

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."

Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."

Cons: "."

Pros: "nothing"

Cons: "Wanted more food. Haha!!"

Cons: "No carbs free meals."

Pros: "Smooth ride, easy security"

Pros: "The boarding process was easy and the crew was great."
Cons: "Other passengers were annoying. One guy was listening to a baseball game on his phone at full volume on the plane during boarding. Another kept hitting the back of my seat playing a game on the entertainment system. And a flight attendant let a guy stay on his phone, while we taxied for takeoff, having the douchiest conversation in history."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."

Pros: "S"

Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"

Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."

Pros: "the crew was pleasant and efficient The landing was really smooth compared to my trip in the opposite direction."
Cons: "paying extra for a small seat was really frustrating"

Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."

Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"

Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"

Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"

Pros: "wifi was great"

Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."

Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"

Pros: "Infrastructure"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"

Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."

Pros: "Staff was wonderful."

Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"

Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"

Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."

Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"

Cons: "Got cancelled"

Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."

Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."

Pros: "Employees from the gate agent up to and including the flight attendants we are very accommodating and helpful!"

Pros: "Flight staff nice"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, super helpful, very friendly and understanding when it came to social distancing."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."

Cons: "Covid travel. Had us board an hour before take off and the back half of the plane was 100% full. Every seat including middle seats. 15 min before take off they allowed passengers to take empty seats and spread out."

Cons: "They should have let us know we would be diverted to Des Moines, and 2 hours Late to BMI before we got to the airport"

Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Cool"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Direct flight was very nice. Took off on time and arrived slightly early. Flight crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Baggage check not staffed until 2 hrs before flight and then it's a 20-30 minute wait to check a bag. Seats were uncomfortable, but tolerable for 2 hrs."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, and the aisles are spacious"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"

Pros: "the crew was very welcoming. and the boarding process was fast."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable. however I can understand because of the price."

Cons: "They would not refund the charge for a carry on I made in error. I did not have a carry on. Would not give me info as to where I could take my complaint so I guess I took it here. The guy at the desk was HORRIBLE"

Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"

Pros: "When you land at Concord you are right near the parking lot!!!"

Pros: "Definitely the price. Fairly quick boarding process, just a little congested. Decent priced drinks."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats, but there was no one next to me, so it was okay."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super rude personelle"

Pros: "Boarding is always a pleasure out of Provo, with no security wait and a pleasant crew. The plane we took was a newer model, and is similar to many Fronteir and economy Delta planes. Unfortunately that means that even a short one-hour flight leaves pains."
Cons: "Our ride was very turbulent, whether that’s due to weather or pioloting I’m not sure. Either way it would have been wonderful to have a free cup of water. Sat for de-icing for about 20 minutes before takeoff."

Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, the directions on having boarding passes on the app or printed prior were not given so found that our last minute to avoid paying the front desk clerk $5.00. The flight landed 5 hours later than scheduled which is completely unacceptable."

Pros: "All went well. No real disappointments!"
Cons: "A little cramped but not terrible. Would like to know kayak fee up front before booking and all hidden charges!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Cons: "Long delays"

Pros: "The flight attendants, the space on the plane, the prompt departure and arrival!"
Cons: "Media has not been reflective of my great experience."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes"

Pros: "People"
Cons: "Extra fees"

Cons: "my Luggage did not make it to Reno."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "initially assigned to center seat."

Pros: "Quick and very smooth flight, amazing flight attendants."
Cons: "Wish at least one drink/soda was free. Boarding line was so slow."

Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"

Pros: "That we made it once we were in the air"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay that should have been announced but we had to get alerts on line not from the airline but Kayak"

Pros: "Like the newer plane. The crew was nice."
Cons: "I purchased 2 bulk head seats for more leg room and because they changed the plane, my seats were no longer in the bulk head. We didn't have extra leg room and I would like a refund for the price I paid to upgrade my seats. It is impossible to get service on the phone, since even the customer service number the flight attentendant gave me, still put me on an unbearable hold time. Please refund my money for the seats that you did not provide me with."

Cons: "they charged me more money because i need alleges air . ap"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything about Aligiant is horrible. Service, attitude, even the pilots can’t land smoothly. As a diabetic, they don’t even give you water withiit paying for it. Had my wallet in my checked bag and almost had a health issue."

Pros: "Great price on airfare"
Cons: "Long line for baggage check in"

Cons: "The ground crew got something stuck in the snow and we can't get off the plane because of that."

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable- they do not recline and the springs in the seat back pole into your back"

Pros: "Front seat leg room"
Cons: "No WIFI."

Cons: "I understand that Allegiant has a pricing structure to implement, but forcing passengers to keep personal items between their feet when most of the overhead compartments were empty was just insulting and ridiculous - not to mention dangerous. In the event of extreme turbulence (or worse), all those personal items would be flying around the cabin."

Pros: "friendly staff and clean enviornment. no nonsense flight."
Cons: "nothing to say except that seats could be a little more comfortable."

Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extra legroom. No recline, no room. Horrible flight"
