Airline reviews

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."

Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."

Pros: "Allegiant does a great job of turning flights and getting you out on time in general. The crew is friendly and helpful."

Cons: "The landing. the approach was so rough. I've flown 6 times this year. And that was the roughest approach ever"

Cons: "I booked two tickets at the same time through kayak and was assigned a seat not next to my son! Because the flight was fully booked there was no ability to rearrange seats."

Pros: "I'm never flying them again I like nothing"
Cons: "the flights were never on time"

Cons: "The air pressure in the cabin was awful. My ears hurt & it gave me sharp pains in my head. Even typical yawning & blowing nose did not help."

Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."

Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"

Pros: "Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water..."

Pros: "Definitely the price. Boarding process was pretty quick. Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Left a little late, but still arrived on time, so that was okay. Seats aren't the most comfortable, but that's expected. Was still able to get a little nap in."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Allegiant knows how to get people off and back on the plane ASAP. The last few flights I have taken we left early and arrived earlier than planned because of this. Crew was friendly. I like the fact the flights are direct and no layovers at airports."

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: "Great crew and online customer service..."
Cons: "1- Flight Behind Schedule 2- Live customer service agents are truly non-existent until 1.5hrs before ‘departure’"

Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly, very polite unlike the United flights I have taken. I was told the space would be uncomfortable but it was absolutely fine for the short flight."
Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."

Pros: "The flight was delayed for almost 4 hrs, but the staff was excellent. From the check-in agent, the gate agent, the flight attendants and pilots - everybody was upbeat and helpful."
Cons: "Just the continual delays, but the mobile notices were so helpful in not coming to the airport for a delayed flight. As always, the fact that the seats don’t recline makes the trip more uncomfortable."

Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("

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 airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"

Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"

Pros: "On time and very efficient"

Pros: "I fly this airline airline quite a bit because I have family in the mountains of North Carolina. I have never had a problem with them, I fly out of Fort Lauderdale to Asheville, it's a quick one and a half hour flight. The flight crew is always professional and courteous."

Pros: "Wow so nice to have an economical fare to Baltimore! On time, courteous, uneventful flight. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Both departing and return flights were delayed by just over 5 hours."

Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."

Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."

Pros: "Being on time and the crew"
Cons: "The chair is not reclining"

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.

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Charge for carry on and in flight snacks and drinks (sodas,juices,water)"

Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of turbulence, but that's not their fault. I thought the pullout handled the situation well."

Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."

Cons: "Bad service. Long waits. No directions at airport from the airline and counter service slow"

Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."

Pros: "No Frills Business Travel Good price No hassle Everything on-time and efficient. A choice if I want extras including baggage, seat assignments, etc. Airport convenience"

Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very respectful and courteous."
Cons: "Last 10 minutes of landing the plane was very very rough. A few people had to pull out the barf bags Lots of speeding up and slowing down. Ups and downs. It wasn't turbulence but it felt like it."

Pros: "We eventually got to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Everything. Spend an it make and book with someone else."

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."

Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
