Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"

Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled on Sunday and they couldn’t get us out until the following Saturday. So we had to cancel our reservation and get refunded... except American says talk to royal jordanian, royal jordanian says talk to air booking. Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."

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"

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

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."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Courteous personnel"
Cons: "Almost wouldn't let me check my luggage to Europe as I arrived an hour in advance to flight from Austin to Dallas, ground crew claimed I should've been there 3 hrs early. Says so nowhere. Then flight departure was delayed! No individual video screens, no choice of movies. No food."

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

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

Pros: "Good entertainment options in newer flights."
Cons: "Food options for first class could be better."

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

Pros: "Can't think of anything at this time"
Cons: "Bought this ticket as gift for my grandson. His departing flight was 4 hours late! Therefore the people picking him up in L.A. Had to pick him up after midnight instead of 8pm. Airline wouldn't try to get him a seat on another airline to help the situation. Thought I was booking this on Alaskan airline but turns out they used American. Will never use this sight again. Going to book directly with actual airline next time"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."

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: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"

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!"

Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"

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 stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."

Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."

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"

Pros: "Staff was wonderful."

Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat too small, cramped leg room. Was told there was no space for my carry-on and to check it, but there was plenty of space when I got on plane."

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 made it home safe."
Cons: "However, the customer service was horrible and very unprofessional. I had to leave a loved one behind because nobody knew the rules and regulations on bringing back a pet! Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"

Pros: "I did not like any of it."
Cons: "We couldn't hear any of the group calling. There were so many different reward members that by the time group B was called I had to check in my baggage. I was not able to pick another seat during ticketing. When I fly for business I generally have a carry on so I can quickly catch my ride however dour to check in of my baggage I had to wait another 30 min before I received my baggage. Air hostess were not very friendly or helpful."

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

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I would like to be able to let the passenger next to me to close the shade. He slept , the sun was not in his face ."

Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."

Pros: "The flight was only 30 min"

Pros: "fly was on time"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on plane. Plane was older. Seats were not comfortable. Had to wait 40 minutes in hot plane for our gate to be available for our plane to pull into."

Pros: "Flight attendants allowed me to move into an unoccupied seat to have more room. Very polite."

Cons: "I paid $40 extra to select a seat and the seat was a middle seat and very uncomfortable and a rip off."

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

Cons: "Cancelled, had to stay in Dallas until next day"

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."

Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."

Pros: "No weather issues this time"
Cons: "Nothing good flight"

Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."

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

Cons: "Major delays, no communication from airline"

Cons: "Absolutely GREAT!!!"

Cons: "I love the changes that have taken place. I last flew with them 5 years ago and vowed too never fly with them again. Times have changed and they are a great Airline!!!"

Cons: "I tried to cancel this trip but was told I would have to pay more in order to receive a refund. Very disappointed customer as I have traveled with Allegiant many times and the one time I try to cancel my flight, I’m told I have to pay a fee which was more expensive than the actual price of the ticket. Waste of money."

Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Met expectations"

Cons: "You really need to install jet ports at Punta Gorda. We sat on tarmac for almost two hours due to rain and lightning in the 5 mile radius. Would have avoided this delay with a jet port."

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."

Pros: "On time flight... good stew's, all around pleasant experience."
Cons: "the seats are hard and very narrow."

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: "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: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Seats were way to small for tall people with long legs..........."

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: "We were delayed on takeoff, but pilot made up a lot of the time I. air"

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: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"

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."

Cons: "Boarding process"

Pros: "Kids board first and you dont have to worry about seating if u have a young child. Also, the nonstop flight was so relaxing."
Cons: "Not much..."

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

Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."

Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."

Cons: "Cut my already short trip even shorter. I used this airline twice now, and both times I was delayed."

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: "My wife said that this was the smoothest airplane ride she had ever had."
Cons: "The first lady at the check in desk told us the wrong gate. We wound up taking a tram to another terminal, found out that we were in the wrong place, and then made it back just in time to board with a few minutes to spare. Anyway, the airline itself was o.k. and next time I'll check the arrival/departure board. Since we were traveling with only a carry on, it was a good price after all the "frills" were added (pay for carry on, pay to select seat). we still had a price lower than any other airline. So all in all, once we got on the plane it was a pleasant experience."

Cons: "We were moved gates a few times. Delayed a few times, finally on a plane and they deboard the whole thing. No one seemed too apologetic at all. Pretty much who cares, after spending money and being moved all over seeming like they cared would've been nice."

Pros: "No frills inexprnsive"
Cons: "No services"

Pros: "I liked that they had a direct flight from Los Angeles to Bellingham."
Cons: "The delays were horrendous and a google search reveals this to be so common it makes me wonder if it's not part of their business model. Like, so bad I ended up booking a return flight on Alaska and just ate the extra $300."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi"

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.

No recline, no room. Horrible flight"

Pros: "Efficient check in, no hidden fees (all were explained via email well before the flight), fast boarding, take off and unloading. Time left and arrived on time. The staff was extremely friendly."
Cons: "The seats were bare bones and not very comfortable but I guess that's what helps keep costs down."

Cons: "Did not check in or take this flight. Trip up to NJ was so bad I could not fly back. Tried to contact company and was told they could not assist in anyway. So lost ticket cost. Live and Learn. Do not fly this line."

Cons: "First they delayed the flight and then they cancelled the day of and I had to book a whole new flight for the day which was costly. I will never recommend that airline to anyone and I wanted to like it since I looked at their website and it looked very military friendly, but it was just disappointing"

Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."

Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I am handicapped and was given the best possible service"

Pros: "Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc."
Cons: "NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!"

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The plane was freezing the entire flight. Apparently, the crew tried to get the pilot to turn down the air, but it never happened. I hate how Allegiant nickel and dimes you. Not even a cup of water is free."

Cons: "No leg room!"

Cons: "Not recliner seats"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."

Cons: "everything was poor"

Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff were and how everything was done on time."

Pros: "The price, found a round trip from Albuquerque to Austin 3 weeks ahead for 74$. I couldn't believe it"

Pros: "I didn't like anything about them"
Cons: "They made me pay 100 dollars for two bags that would of fit under the seat"

Pros: "Nothing about it at all"
Cons: "I didn't like the turbalance on the plane I didn't like the service check in line Need more people helping in the airport"

Pros: "It's a budget airline so don't​expect thrills, but it got me to my destination."
Cons: "The boarding agent didn't understand priority comes before group 3."
