Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Poor service for food and beverage"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Cons: "No entertainment on board"

Cons: "I called and wanted exchange my flight purchase for a credit for another flight as I had gone into the hospital the day before and received a doctors note regarding an infection of the ear and I was instructed by my physician to be weary of flying immediately and I have the note from my physician to provide if necessary. After speaking with multiple people they said they do not have a medical clause and I could not get my money back or even a credit to reschedule a flight."

Cons: "sat in a middle seat"

Pros: "1st class and iMessage"
Cons: "No tv/wifi to watch anything"

Cons: "A woman thought she had my seat. She said "I am 29A" and so I quickly got the steward so we could resolve the complication. It turned out she read 29A on her itinerary only it was for an earlier leg of the trip. Instead of understanding her accidental oversight, the steward said to us both, "you have 29C and you 29A whats the problem?" I understand he was busy, only 2 passengers booked for the same seat would cause a problem on a full flight. He should have understood her accidental self-seat assignment change because she read the seat from the earlier flight. She and I weren't trying to have issues, we just wanted to sort out what we thought was an overlap in seat assignments."

Cons: "It's confusing that SFO to SNA is in international. I almost missed my flight after running to the air train in a mad dash after going through security in domestic Alaska. Stressful..."

Pros: "Everything else was standard"

Pros: "On time. Big space. Friendly attendance"

Pros: "Very on time . New airplane . Easy ride"

Pros: "Sonoma county airport is the easiest airport to travel through with the friendliest TSA and airport employees. I got there 40min before my flight where I checked my baggage, went through security, and had 15min to spare before boarding."
Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."

Cons: "Aircraft felt and sounded old. Lots of extra cracks and rattles while taxiing."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy but that may have been because it was a small plane."

Pros: "The cheezits were awesome."
Cons: "After departing an hour late because they forgot to fuel the aircraft, we have landed and are currently in the wrong city because they did not onboard the correct amount of fuel.

I checked my bags personally after going through customs In the connecting baggage area then had a four hour layover and they JETBLUE couldn't get the damn bags on board! This is completely frustrating and costing me money as I miss work/jury duty waiting for luggage. Azores airline did a great job of luggage transfers.

Cons: "Cleaner"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"

Pros: "Was boarded promptly"

Pros: "room and services"
Cons: "can't think of anything"

Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"

Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"
Cons: ".."

Pros: "The selection of movies was great."
Cons: "The food. No herbal or decaf tea. No decaf coffee. The regular coffee and regular tea was awful; I like strong coffee and tea but on the plane it was terrible. The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."

Pros: ".."
Cons: ".."

Cons: "I understand Mother Nature causes issues tkayakhat no one can control but when I'm receiving updates from the 3rd party travel app that isn't the airline before receiving any information directly from the airline via the gate agent or Deltas travel app and the gate agent not being able to verify the 3rd party travel app something is wrong."

Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."

Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"

Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"

Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"

Pros: "A3A"
Cons: "Ĺ"

Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Not supplying headphones Crew not to helpful, one unpolite Refreshments ridiculous"

Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."

Pros: "Everything else"

Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."

Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."

Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."

Pros: "red"
Cons: "red"

Pros: "Everything was just right"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly sataff. Not informed that we have to me know in with a difrnt confirmation number related to the operating Claire. I had to spent one hour to fit this information to be able to check in.? It was an international flight but it was treated like a domestic flight. We were not even offered the curtesy snake for a domestic flight by unfriendly stewards apparently unhappyted with her job. Apparanty all American carrier staffs has no respect for customers. It is not only s united problem. Curtesy and respects goes both ways. They need to be retrained in public relation."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."

Cons: "Flight Attendant should dis infect the lavatory everytime a customer uses since they have plenty of downtime (no longer serving refreshments)."

Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"

Pros: "Entertainment was good for the length of the flight."
Cons: "Delayed several times, one of which was because they didn’t have enough gas for the trip. The pilot also came in so fast and hard that he slammed on the planes breaks when landing - violently shaking the entire plane."

Cons: "Plane was delayed for 1 hour, electrical problems, which were never fixed. No entertainment no wifi, unable to charge battery on cell phone. Cabin very warm."

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."

Cons: "The chairs"

Pros: "Food and staff are great"
Cons: "Small space between seats"

Cons: "Overall good business class trip."

Cons: "The greed of the airlines is on full display. There was a time in the 1960's when flying was a special experience. That is all gone now. Flight attendants cold, and almost hostile."

Pros: "Attentiveness of crew and meeting my needs"
Cons: "More leg room/space and a FREE sandwich. I’ll take one is those."

Cons: "The crew seemed annoyed and not into it."

Pros: "Never even made it on this flight because the first flight was ruined and delayed severely"
Cons: "The fact that my travel plans were entirely derailed and I had to book with another airline"

Pros: "Good pilot/ crew to passenger interection. Great movie and entertainment selections."
Cons: "Turbulence but airline / pilot can't control that."

Pros: "The crew were fine, not their fault for sure."
Cons: "5 hour delay. That about says it all. All due to late flight crew from weather elsewhere, having them being taken offline because of long hours, trying to find new people, having a jetway break. Having to sit on a plane in the terminal for more than an hour with no air and stifling heat, taken off the plane and back on. All for a non-stop flight from Boston to LA. Definitely not fun."

Cons: "Flight got delayed by 2 hours"

Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"

Pros: "New entertainment system, and variety of selection. Plane cleanliness as condition."
Cons: "Seats are stiff and uncomfortable. Pretzels and only pretzels for snacks."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of snacks"

Pros: "Paying for food (sarcastically) — the staff on the flight need hospitality training"

Pros: "What you expect from an internal US flight: no food, crowded flight, cramped seats. I have come to expect two things - arrive on time and arrive safely. The good, we arrived safely."
Cons: "Pulled away from gate and sat on tarmac for over an hour while technical difficulties fixed. We should not have boarded until plane was ready. We arrived over one hour late and just made connecting flight. Our luggage was not so fortunate."

Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."

Pros: "The flight was safe."
Cons: "Hi. I was shocked that there was no food served on the 6 hour flight from Boston to LA. And the seats are way too small. I’m not large and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. There wasn’t enough help, either."

Pros: "Flight from Lax to Lihue. Very comfortable, crew enjoyable entertainment with options"
Cons: "Everything about the flight from.Boston to Lax"

Pros: "Plane was on time, everything proceeded like clockwork."
Cons: "Paying for luggage or food."

Pros: "Good crew Lucky to get better seats!"
Cons: "Poor Selection of entertainment not enough screen"

Cons: "20 minute departure delay. More than 30 minutes at baggage claim"

Pros: "Great having plugs, nice seats"
Cons: "First leg of flight did not have personal TVs, so limited selection of entertainment"

Pros: "Old school seat. No foot rest. Small plane to go coast to coast."
Cons: "UI on the entertainment system was horrible."

Cons: "No complaints. Best flight in a long time"

Pros: "Got in an hour early. Booya."

Pros: "Crew are cold. Babies crying. Dogs parking. And strong headwinds flying in from Boston made this flight uncomfortable"

Cons: "Two legs flying up from Norfolk to Boston delayed. Two legs flying home the next day also delayed."

Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"

Pros: "There's nothing good about AA"
Cons: "One of the few things SouthWest, Alaska & United did was the proper queuing of people to get into the plane. AA is a free for all - those who follow regulations will fall behind. In this flight from Boston to LAX - I heard there were 80 Priority checking - are you kidding me. Group 1 does not help if I have 80 Priority seating and one family took 12 people in with one elderly. It's good to place Elderly and Military up front first - but to take the Whole entire family - that's not fair - you have 8 able bodies who should be in line with the rest of the crowd. Also who heard of 80 Priority check ins - normally, that's Group 1. Never flying AA unless I a desperate."

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment interface was well-designed. The aircraft tracker is the best, the media selections were plentiful. Having the usb and headphone plugs next to the monitor is the best. Better than Virgin for sure. But strangely, you couldn't order from the food and drinks menu like you can from Virgin so it was just a video version of the menu card. Food was good."
Cons: "Someone destroyed a lavatory so we were short one for the flight and caused a 30 minute delay before take-off. The usual spiral happened: pilot flew into bad turbulence to make up time. No biggie."

Cons: "Lack of entertainment provided."

Cons: "I purchased extra legroom but got less - front row.Between two very large elderly gentlemen. No overhead storage either. Miserable and long flight."

Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."

Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"

Cons: "They charged me for my baggaged. Said it wasnt included with the ticket"

Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"

Cons: "Internet is kinda hard to get connected to sometimes."

Cons: "Gogo inflight entertainment"

Pros: "Great smile for all the air hostess all the time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Not allowed single single baggage,"

Pros: "No issues. The whole trip went well."
Cons: "The little lady sitting next to me took my seat but it just let her have the window seat because she could not speak english"

Cons: "4 hours of no air conditioning in a middle seat..."

Pros: "Loved the people, very friendly and accommodating. I sat in first class and felt very comfortable."
Cons: "I think needing your own device for entertainment is awful then having to pay rental fees, even if you're in first class."

Pros: "Nothing. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for 3.5 hours with little communication or apology. The seats were very uncomfortable. Terrible turbulence. Not even a complimentary soda for all of this. I will never fly Allegiant ever again."

Pros: "No seat not comfortable."
Cons: "No legroom."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Boarding was excruciatingly slow."

Pros: "They sat my family together and the crew was amazing."
Cons: "The seats are really uncomfortable and the flight was really packed with all this covid stuff."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Communication is always my #1 complaint with Allegiant. They delay flights regularly but there’s never any additional information...they just send you a text or email saying your flight is delayed, never tell you why, but they want you at the gate at the regular time...so you sit there for hours with No further communication and the gate agents never come to the gate to let you know what’s going on or what to expect because corporate has gotten stingy with regard to compensating folks even when THEY are to blame for the delay. Two trips in a row, two weeks apart, they’ve done the same thing to us. I appreciate the low fares, but I’ve just about decided I’d rather pay more for good customer service because theirs just sucks."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "A little Snack"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "?"

Pros: "Flight speed"
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that we are all watching and listening to them hoot and holler with themselves. During the flight the head attendant was watching a movie on her personal device. At this point anybody could do her job"

Pros: "Everything was simple and it was cool that they let the staff wear comfy clothes"
Cons: "Usb chargers in the seat, and free refreshments and peanuts"

Cons: "Free beverages"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Not having so many extra charges and having to pay for a carry on"

Pros: "Great fares even for last minute booking."
Cons: "Services and comfort as expected for the price."

Pros: "All wa great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cost of flight"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Couldn’t even get a cup of water."

Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Asked flight attendants for a cup of water as I was not feeling well and was told I could buy some water. I was also told my carry on was too big when it clearly fit in the container at the check in process."

Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"

Pros: "It was great"

Pros: "Affordable but no free water or snax"
Cons: "Cheap feeling seat. Thin plastic shells packed tightly together. But hey- its cheap!"

Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"

Pros: "The flight left on time and was fine."
Cons: "This flight was at a small airport and we waited in line for security longer than at a large airport. There were 5 flights going through security at the same time with nothing scheduled later. Why not spread them out a bit and save everyone some time?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The $17.00 i paid to insure the flight was not honored. I had some health issues and needed to cancel. I was then told that the airline I chose through your site, won’t honor it. I am furious and am owed my refund."

Pros: "Friendly staff!!"
Cons: "Hour delay on flight"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Quick flight and overall nice crew."
Cons: "None"

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

Pros: "Plane, staff, made best of bad situation. Seats are only OKAY to Good, but NO airlines are really comfortable so by comparison they were good"
Cons: "The delay - this time not due to the airlines, so thus the good review."

Cons: "Our engine seats at the rear of the plane were of course a little noisy at first. We got these seats on both our flights. Hoped that at least one-way we would have managed seats with a window."

Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."

Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."

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."

Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."

Pros: "Flew 2 different legs with Allegiant, both of which were delayed for maintenance stuff. 2nd leg, we sat in the plane for an hour waiting for a maintenance guy, so my wife went to the bathroom. No toilet paper! When my wife asked about it, she was told "we won't be getting toilet paper for this flight." Inexpensive is one thing, but...dear lord!"

Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."

Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."

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!"

Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"

Pros: "The prices are good. Anything additional (food, overhead carry on space) is an additional cost but this is how they make the tickets cheaper for people who don't need extras."

Pros: "I like the flight. It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."

Pros: "It's really annoying to stand in line, get to the attendant and then be told to step aside and download an app for your phone and check in (and especially check bags) that way. I don' know the security or privacy of that app, plus it is just tedious and annoying."
Cons: "Seats on Allegiant are terrible, and charging to print out a boarding pass is awful. Charging for water on a flight where you have no other options for water should actually be illegal. Shame on them for that."

Pros: "friendly staff, good take-off - landing, all that jazz"
Cons: "Not knowing it would be a late take off. Other than that, very good."

Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"

Pros: "It's ridiculous have to pay to bring a bag on your airplane it's ridiculous that your staff at the Medford airport or unprofessional and lack common courtesy."
Cons: "Gate staff at Medford Oregon airport were rude and unaccommodating"

Pros: "Excellent direct flight at good price"
Cons: "Flight 339 not listed on TV monitors at Boise airport"

Pros: "It was fairly clean and the flight wasn't crowded."
Cons: "Flight boarded late, $2 charge for water (and it's not even good water), and no free carry on."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "First time flying Allegiant: Head's up! They charge you for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING and the overall experience is awful. Would you like to know what it's like to fly on a plane bound for extradition to a foreign prison...fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like to experience the unexpected thrills of being nickeled and dimed at every turn....fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like the answer to the question posed after paying $100 for two carry-on's: 'could this get any worse?' Answer: It does!...fly Allegiant Airlines. Here's how it all starts out they welcome you to the terminal with a wonderful opportunity to pay $5 for printing your boarding passes (unless you download their app). How could a piece of paper that small that no other airline charges you to print cost $5 you ask? Well that is the magic of Allegiant Airlines at work, if they can't make something simple; both costly and annoying then you aren't flying Allegiant Airlines. You then inquire at the check-in desk can my loved one and I sit together, and they say sure but you will have to do that at the gate. Ok some positive news here...but then it sinks in.. wait a minute what Airline are we flying again? ...Allegiant Airlines, and what is their motto?? If it is simple and easy it shall become both costly and wildly inefficient. You arrive at the gate with hope in your heart and they then tell you, umm no. Who ever told you that is a fool! You can make no changes to your seating this is a 40,000lb aircraft with a 300,000lb lift capacity and it can't handle you sitting next to your girlfriend it would compromise the avionics and we would all surely die. Then why on the app did it show open seats? Seats of course for a price! Not by section like a normal airline ohhh noo a price that was completely different for every single seat as if the seats were in competition with each other in some high altitude economy that makes far less sense at sea level.The helpful response to this inquiry was 'oh well that was then' I am looking at it right now. I don't know what to tell you.. What's next?! A surprise $50 charge per carry-on! Unless you read the small print on one of their emails that is filled with advertisements they make it look like another advertisement, I'm going to go out on a limb and say INTENTIONALLY as it is never mentioned on: (The check-in email, the purchase confirmation email, not mentioned by the ticket counter, not anywhere on the app, not written anywhere on the electronic ticket despite them announcing otherwise) They instead tell you right as you are boarding the plane and have absolutely no choice in the matter and have done this innumerable amount of times as the flight attendant was well versed in de-escalation protocol and a security guard was positioned an arms length away as she deftly charges your card on file... I have run out of characters for this post I can only assume this comment section is run by Allegiant Airlines.."

Pros: "Cheat, direct flight from LA to Boise."
Cons: "Absolute bare bones. Like riding the city bus."
