Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Both of the two flights in two days were delayed to the point that I missed my next flight. Third times a charm"

Pros: "This flight did not exist - I ended up with a flight from Bellingham to Seattle, but they cancelled that and I ended up having to catch a bus at 4 am to Seattle to catch my flight to Indianapolis. Now I have to track down how to get reimbursed for the bus ticket, which is not easy for me."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was inconveniently scheduled to fly out about TWELVE HOURS before my originally scheduled flight. Unbelievable."

Pros: "A Flight attendant went beyond the call of duty when she found me after I had returned to my seat. This was after I had walked to the rear of the acft to work out a bad cramp in my thigh. She provided me with a hot water bottle that did wonders in relieving the pain and stopped the cramp from returning."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I didn't take the time to remember her name."

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight was basically beyond max capacity in terms of food & bathroom but they handled it well."
Cons: "- Ran out of food. There were a lot of people asking to buy food but no food available. - Crazy lines to the bathroom -- the plane was probably too small for the number of people and the length of the flight?"

Cons: "Our 10:15 a.m. flight was delayed until 11:45 a.m. - we had arrived at the airport too early and ended up waiting a long time in a crowded and noisy terminal that lacked sufficient seats for all the travelers at the gate (Gates 11, etc.)"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "That the flight was right on time with no delays."
Cons: "The change of gate for departure."

Pros: "What a pleasure to fly with Alaska Airlines. Have yet to feel like I was an imposition with traveling with AA. Thanks for letting me feel like a client rather than a bother. Virgin Air and AA will be a happy merge, I believe. Keep your work ethic and soar even higher!"

The crew also gave my friend a voucher for towards a future flight when she offered an extra pair of her son's pants to a family whose son threw up after the bumpy flight. Thanks so much!"

Pros: "my inflight meal was wonderful, the staff were friendly and very attentive and I was sitting in the last row. flight was delayed many hours due to mechanical issues on the plane and saftey came first."
Cons: "since the seat doesn't recline in the last row, more padding in the headrest would be nice"

Pros: "The flig t had a delayed departure so I was given a voucher for $12 to get something to eat. In this day and age I thought that was very thoughtful. Also a representative handed each passenger a chit with instructions for a discount on a future flight. Again a thought act instead of a flat response!"
Cons: "Lack of space between passengers."

Cons: "Coming down and landing"

Pros: "To be able to upgrade, charging stations at my seat, generous beverages"

Cons: "Planning"

Pros: "The passengers were spaced out, so we could actually social distance."
Cons: "Not all passengers wore masks. During a contagious pandemic. What the actual hell? Also, the tray tables are too small to use for anything, and we didn’t even get a free drink. Water and soda are so cheap, it’s absurd. I’d never take Allegiant again if they weren’t basically the only airline operating out of my town’s small airport."

Pros: "We had a really nice crew."

Pros: "Florida was amazing. The people were very friendly."

Pros: "Love Allegiant!"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Flights in both directions were late."

Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."

Pros: "Everyone from desk to gate to crew were very friendly. I like alla carte airlines for thier value. I dont need a free soda for and extra $100 ticket price."
Cons: "Needs better organization during boarding. Everyone piles up near the gate. Thry can copy Southwest and make the process smoother."

Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."

Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"

Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."
Cons: "Reviewed 9 hours because a crew member didn’t show. Was originally told 6 hours delay only 20 minutes before the flight was due to leave. Received two $8 meal vouchers and rude and slow service from the entire ground crew."

Pros: "Affordable and fast"
Cons: "Big guy sitting next to me took up 2 seats!!"

Pros: "Boarding at the new Austin South terminal was a breeze!"
Cons: "It's ridiculous to make passengers keep their personal items on the floor when most of the overhead lockers are empty. Ridiculous and dangerous."

Pros: "Although we were late to our gate, the Allegiant staff made sure that we were able to board our plane on time."

Cons: "After the horrendous delays getting to my destination I just bit the bullet and bought new tickets (duplicates) on a different airline to get back home-- rather than risk a repeat experience. Ended up costing an extra $300 but at least I didn't have to spend an entire day in an airport trying to keep my 7 year old from losing his mind."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again."

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."

Pros: "The price for the flight and the direct flight make it worthwhile."
Cons: "Boarding process was completely chaotic; they had two lines, one for people with paper boarding passes and one for those with electronic passes, but they just let everyone line up all at once which was way too crazy. It needs to be better organized."

Cons: "I flew to my "surprised" 50th bday party with family and to meet more family. The aircraft problems overheated engine, caused us to get out of the plane, move all luggages and wait foe a new plane that also had to be cooled off before reboarding. We were tired and hungry. Missed my bday with family. Very very disappointed."

Cons: "7 hour delay. Giving us delays in increments so we couldn't make a decision to leave."

Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"

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

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "We sat for five hours waiting for a thunderstorm to end on a hot plane with no drinks."

Pros: "Crew was great and handled the delay well. Definitely worth the 6 bucks each way to get the seats with additional leg room."
Cons: "This the 2nd time I've flown from Punta Gorda to Indy in the last month and both times the departures were delayed because of mechanical issues. No vouchers offered + no free anything offered = Bad customer service model. This airline also charges for carry-ons."

Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."
Cons: "They would tell me the problem with the plane."

Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"

Pros: "At least I arrived to Oakland eventually. A one hour flight turned into a 7 hour wait and flight"

Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
Cons: "The security crew made me go through security twice and made my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter stand while they searched her bag"

Cons: "Leg space tight. Seat didn't recline. They said the maximum width on the under seat personal item is 7 inches but space is big enough for wider than that. I felt that was misleading."

Pros: "Flight attendant Lisa was great."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Slow to get luggage. Seats not comfortable"

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: "The flight left on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for carry on bags and they don't have a toll free number"

Cons: "That you charge for every little thing...surprised you don't charge to use the bathrooms. Don't appreciate having to be your clean up crew either."

Pros: "Having to bug hotel staff to make sure to print boarding passes to avoid a $5 charge for each...having to pay for carry-on bags in advance and then unstuff them in the cramped aisles while boarding because the overhead compartments were too small...flight delays on each leg of the trip...staff that seemed lobotomized...seats that have a bar jamming into your lower back and don't recline.... etc., etc, etc, etc, Plus stupid coporate name and a logo that's hard on the eyes! ALLEGIANT SUCKS from its nose to its tail fin."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "6hr delay, boarded the plane 3 separate times. 2 different mechanical problems. Infrequent updates"

Cons: "Wondering why my initial flight to vegas from oakland wasnt up for review. That experience was terrible. It was delayed 4 hours with no explanation or other compensation. I'll do my best not to fly allegiant again."

Pros: "Spanish speaking lady employee at the counter very helpful."
