Airline reviews

Pros: "The cookies are delicious."
Cons: "The flight was tumultuous and the landing was rattling."

Pros: "It much"
Cons: "It was so bumpy No air circulation Smelled It made me sick"

Cons: "No problems at all but flight was rerouted to San Jose"

Cons: "Could have been on time"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Inexpensive flight on an expensive weekend, but staff is really nice."
Cons: "The flight is always a little delayed (30-45 min) because of how far plane is from the gate"

Pros: "Smaller plane so the two seats on each side provide more room. Very comfortable."
Cons: "This is my second Alaska flight at this time. Both times it was late for departure and it’s the first flight of the day!! Once was a break failure light (understandable) and today was a manifest issue...how do you lose a passenger from scanning in to boarding (30 minute) delay!"

Pros: "- Good service once we were on the plane - Free wifi for texting - Inexpensive since Southwest got more pricey"
Cons: "- Flight was an hour late - instead of being honest about the delay it was like "Just another 15 min... we'll be ready to board shortly..." - The gate was SO FAR from the plane. We were in the shuttle bus for like, 10 minutes. WTF?"

Pros: "Quick flight Good selection of entertainment Being able to text your friends is really nice"
Cons: "Waited for an HOUR in the plane for some paperwork. First we waited like 15 min for the first set, but it was the wrong one (missing some key verbiage?) so we had to wait EVEN LONGER for the correct paper to show up. Get your damn act together, Alaska. Luckily we had some tailwind so we only arrived 20 minutes late... BUT STILL."

Pros: "Marissa was fantastic..! Great everything..!"

Pros: "Leg space. Free WiFi for t mobile customers."

Cons: "Having to pay for own transportation and time to San Jose when flight was supposed to be out of San Francisco."

Pros: "Clean jet, friendly crew"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Pros: "Clean new planes. Good service."

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

Pros: "The in flight cookies were deliscious"
Cons: "I arrived to my gate about a half hour before boarding was set to start. An employee greeting me recommended I use the restroom because the gate was down an elevator and in a portion of the airport that did not have accessible restrooms or food options. She cautioned against returning late later than ten minutes before boarding. I returned about ten minutes before the scheduled boarding, only to be told there would be a delay, which wouldn't be an issue except that it took over an hour and sounded like a standard, foreseeable safety process due to the plane being out of the country prior to our flight. Then we were shuttled to the plane on a frigid bus, which at one point stopped so suddenly several passengers and baggages were sent to the floor. And then, after finally taking off, the in flight wifi did not work. After landing in Portland, there was a 45 minute delay because "a vehicle is parked in our gate." Ultimately, we flew safe and sound, but the discomfort caused by the cold bus transports, poor bus driving, foreseeable delays, and a parked vehicle was really unacceptable. After this experience, it will be hard to choose Alaska Airlines in the future."

Cons: "Better vegan snacks available for purchase would be great."

Pros: "Same as before."

Cons: "We had to take a bus to our airplane. It took off a full hour late and it seemed mostly due to horrendously slow gate operations"

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: "They cancelled my original flight"

Pros: "The service was fine."
Cons: "On the airline website it said that flights to OC flew out of the international terminal but they don't. Then the flight took off 1/2 hour late at least."

Cons: "lost luggage.......two days...............................19 miles away."

Pros: "The flight crew was good, and the flight was quick once we got on the plane - which was 1 hour 45 minutes after we should have!"
Cons: "I got on the second leg of a flight from Seattle to Palm Springs at San Francisco. First, the flight arrived an hour late. Passengers from Seattle said that the loading crew somehow dented the wall to the luggage area (?) and they had to inspect it before flying. When it finally got to SFO, we boarded the plane at first, and then had to deplane back into the airport because they had (over?)filled the wrong fuel tank. So they had to empty that tank and fill another I guess? Don't know if the tank they filled was on the other side of the dented luggage area. The announcements from the desk were puzzling, and tended to be every 10 minutes telling us to wait 10 minutes instead of giving a good estimate so we didn't need to stand at the gate the whole time. After about 50 more minutes we boarded again and the plane took off OK. But there needs to be serious improvement in communication between the crew on the ground (gas & luggage etc) and the pilot and the desk crew, and between all of them and their paying customers."

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: "As the flight was delayed, staff made sure we had water and snacks in the terminal and kept us up to day. Kudos!"

Pros: "The staff was super friendly and the plane was new. It felt brand new."

Pros: "1. Boarding appeared streamlined. 2. Plugs ins for tech. 3. Coffee smelled amazing. 5. Seat size seemed larger than most airplanes."
Cons: "1. Wifi or gogo did not connect. 2. It was a tad bit cold."

Pros: "On-time departure and no hassle boarding policies."

Pros: "Free movies, able to text in flight"
Cons: "Annoying seat neighbor with bright light and computer screen on during entire late night flight."

Cons: "The delay of 45 minutes to about an hour inside the plane."

Pros: "Excellent service. I would fly this airline again!"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "I didn't try the food or entertainment."

Pros: "Would be better to allow blue Tooth headsets to view tv/movies did not have wired head phones and did not want to purchase them."

Cons: "1 hour delay. I asked. Front desk said it was due to sfo fog. Me: Isn't it 2017? They have radars now; I have flown from Boston under severe snow storms. Yes. I have."

Cons: "Departure happened when we were supposed to arrive"

Pros: "very comfortable seats and comfortable plane in general."

Pros: "appetizer plate and the service by the wonderful flight attendant Kristy. she was very friendly, kind and generous. 5 stars to her. thank you Kristy!"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Pretty solid flight, no complaints"
Cons: "Everything was divine"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, I had space because I got bumped up to premium class which has some nice legroom, the flight itself was smooth"

Pros: "Service was solid. I liked the $12 voucher to use at the airport while waiting for 2.5 hour delayed flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay"

Pros: "Seats were comfy"
Cons: "Delayed and no head rest tv screens :( Flew with my two kids those sure make a difference on how my flight goes"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the professionalism the ticket people at the counter. they were very helpful and very pleasant. I like both alaska airlines and virgin America. I never have a problem when I fly with them."
Cons: "the only thing that was unpleasant was my boyfriend was missing a phone charger and some cigars out of his suitcase. it must of happened through customs or the baggage handling."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by an hour due to maintenance. We finally boarded with good news that it would take us just an hour and twenty five minutes from SFO to SEA. But then there was another delay on the strip for an hour. Then the off boarding process was extremely slow as well. Was just felt like a very long night."

Pros: "The cabin was miserably hot"

Pros: "My flight was delayed by two hours, but I got to go on the earlier flight (that left at my original time), and they even gave me a Premium seat!"

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."

Pros: "Nine was great."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and pleasant. Seat was comfortable, good knee room. Left and arrived on-time. Good experience."
Cons: "Reclining seats need to either go away, or be built so that reclining takes leg room away from the person reclining. Why should I be punished for a rude passenger in front of me who decides to punish me by reclining their seat?"

Pros: "Staff’s attention and patience with customers was great. They knew many were frustrated with the delay but they met our needs with a smile"
Cons: "Weather delay was a real bummer but I liked the app wanted to help reconnect people with other flights. The app should also tell us the reason for the delay, if allowable, especially if it weather. I almost hoed on another flight through Minneapolis but would have been stuck in Minneapolis cause I didn’t know the delay was due to weather an hour later."

Pros: "comfortable seats enough overhead bin space."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"

Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"

Pros: "Flight ifself was okay once on the plane"
Cons: "5 hours delayed for no apparent reason. Understaffed in SJC to handle this."

Pros: "Crew was amazing , one patient was getting sick while flight and always to flight stewards where always outside bathroom to help her. And crew was still able to service whole plane of 200 passengers."
Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."

Pros: "Good clean aircraft. Fairly comfortable seats. Even had a power outlet in my row. Not too bad for an aircraft from the late 70s."
Cons: "for some reason, i had to pay to gate check a bag. It didnt seem like anyone else did while boarding my flight."

Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"

Pros: "Crew was nice, the snack was pretty good. Good air conditioning."
Cons: "Didn’t turn off overhead light. It’s usually off most of the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

Pros: "No food, no entertainment but the crew were nice and the process was painless. Recommended"

Pros: "I got a good seat from LA to GTA on 1st jan. it was in the front and spacious and I was also served food."

Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."

Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "They were very dishonest about everything. We need to be there in Australia on Monday morning for very important event but reached Australia Monday night 8PM. Virgin Australia contatcted out their flight from SJC to LAX through Delta and Delta cancelled flights becaue no-show of Pilot to operate the plan. What a Joke???? We asked them to put us through another carrier to LAX for connecting flight they refused.Very very BAD. It was a big miss for us.. never again Delta/Virgin Australia.............."

Pros: "Quick friendly service from crew and captain."
Cons: "First class seat was broken was reclined and super uncomfortable the whole flight the plane was super outdated and old."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"

Pros: "I liked that flight time was shorter than expected"
Cons: "no screens, only wify entertainment, app is working only with ios and android. seats don't have much leg room, and not very comfortable. i paid for extra luggage, and they were strict about the weight(had to take any items out of the bag, even that i had one large bag, and one small bag(2nd bag was underweight)"

Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"

Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Pros: "Flights were on time and friendly attendants!"

Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"

Pros: "The flight was very quick."
Cons: "They didn't serve us water."

Pros: "I liked the boarding process."
Cons: "Bigger seats are more helpful."

Cons: "Delay over one hour."

Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."

Cons: "The crew didn't even have the decency to wait for passengers to deplane. They were long gone by the time we got off. I found this pretty terrible service. Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."

Pros: "Courtesy seating"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"

Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly done. Almost unnoticeable that didn't make me nervous at all."

Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"

Cons: "Very rude flight attendant - unnecessary attitude"

Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Pros: "Overall great experience"

Pros: "New and improved food options!"
Cons: "Boarding took more time than usual. They were able to accommodate less carry on baggage."

Pros: "the embraer 175 is VERY comfortable, despite being a smaller jet."
Cons: "Just an FYI - the small overhead bin space on the Embraer 175 made it so that many passengers bags needed to be checked at the gate to baggage."

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

Pros: "the flight on Delta and Virgin Atlantic was nothing other than brilliant!"
Cons: "everything - service - facilities - food - amenities - an overall wonderful experience!"

Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."

Pros: "How reassuring the previous crew was that everything would be fine"
Cons: "They lied. Due to delays we got to plane 5 min before scheduled departure. But crew closed plane on our noses. No explanation. No consideration that most of airport was running late"

Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"

Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."

Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"

Pros: "Great crew!"

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"

Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."

Cons: "2 days late"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"

Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."

Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."

Pros: "Polite and professional"

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful ."
Cons: "The crews at the airports are extremely rude and impatient."

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "I love that they fly out of smaller airports. I feel like the crew is kind and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable but luckily most of the flights are not too long."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked the price and that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Everyone was moved around a lot to try to social distance so I was closer to more people than I would have been on a regular flight."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. The aisle was nice and wide which makes walking to seats easier"
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, the flight was smooth and my husband and I got a full row to ourselves."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable, no entertainment."

Cons: "A place to out my bottle of water"

Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."

Cons: "$50 bag fee for small carry on is punative."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "I like I can pick seats."
Cons: "Ppl putting their carry on in overhead bins nor in their row so when zone 6 (at the front of the plane) gets on, there’s no room in your overhead bin space. Crew should say to passengers to put their luggage in their area, not front of the plane."

Cons: "Unfriendly Flight attendants"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still in Reno. Aircraft broke down"

Pros: "Ticket prices are always the best. Even though The flight was delayed by 30 minutes we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes but we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"

Pros: "The plane didnt crash :) Friendly attendants."
Cons: "NO WIFI. Flights are delayed often, what looked like a brand spanking new plane had the most uncomfortable seats ever, felt like sitting on wood in the exit row. You get what you pay for though."

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."

Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."

Cons: "This was the first flight if the day and the plane floors were fithly. It look as though they have not been vacuumed in a few days!!!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "There was no one working at the counter when we arrived at the airport and there was already a sizable line. We waited about 10 minutes before anyone showed up to assist customers. Not sure what was up with that. Very uncomfortable seats and crowded seating on plane which is typical these days everything else went fine. Flight left and arrived on time."

Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"

Pros: "Made it home safely."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac 2.5 hrs. Then plane delayed 10 hours. Then waited on tarmac 2 more hours. Horrible first experience flying with Allegiant."

Pros: "Great airport for getting to Florida. Good prices"

Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food choices are very limited"

Cons: "Seats are hard"

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

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

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

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

Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"

Cons: "15 minutes waiting for luggage—still none out."

Pros: "The staff was nice, kind of, but also unprofessional at time."
Cons: "My flights were both fine but the flight from Fresno to Las Vegas was such a disaster! They switched planes so the majority of the people did not have a seat because the plane did not have any B seats. It would have been nice if ANYONE had made that announcement before we boarded to avoid confusion. Also, the fees are ridiculous! Your app is not user friendly at all! Who the hell charges for a carry on bag?! Are you kidding me?! The directions on the app made it sound like the $17 charge was for an additional carry on item, not the allowed one carry on item. So, when we went to check in and I was told I would have to pay $50 for my mother's carry on, it was livid! Also, are you serious with the $5 fee to print a boarding pass? I will NEVER fly with Allegiant Air again. That is absolutely unacceptable. I will say that the staff was pleasant but the airline is inept and inefficient. The reason I will never fly this airline again because of what a rip off the fees are. Allegiant Air, you should be ashamed of yourself."

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: "Great flight. On time. Easy on. Easy off. And amazing fares."
Cons: "Everything great"

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

Pros: "Snacks were good but we had to pay for them."

Pros: "Very cheap ticket Non stop flight to HTS with excellent service. Eat before the flight. It is a short flight but if needed bring your snack... airports near big cities..."

Pros: "Great cost. Boarding and crew were seamless and pleasant."
Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."

Cons: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"

Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"

Pros: "The crew and pilot"
Cons: "Entertainment."

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: "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: "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."

Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"

Pros: "Great price ."
Cons: "Landing in Austin and having to walk down a wet slippery ramp and then across the tarmac in a thunderstorm ... got VERY wet . How about a cover ?"

Pros: "Very good flight crew. Cheerful. Nicely suggested a free adult beverage since we had the Allegiant credit card."
Cons: "Was an hour and half late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."

Pros: "Free snack and drink"
Cons: "Complicated check in process for basic economy. Sat on tarmac for 30 min for gate to open up. Crew was not knowledgeable. No food, no WiFi."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Roomier seats"

Cons: "0 space felt like two people were sitting on top of me the entire flight. Seats are so small. No room to even put my arms at my side. I'm 5'9 and my knees were scraping the seat in front of me. Uncomfortable the entire flight. only nice part of the flight was the captain and crew."

Cons: "Cold, not enough space for carry on"

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "United Arlines has a lot of room to improve. It’s clearly just in it to make money and doesn’t care about the individual customer"

Pros: "I had window seat"

Cons: "The flight had delayed almost 3 hours"

Pros: "This was the final leg of our Toronto to Orange County trip. It was 1 ½ hours. We got on fast and took off on time. I slept through most of it..."
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services..."

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Quick, smooth"

Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding because of a technical issue and then after waiting over an hour we had to deplane and board another plane in a different terminal. That was a bummer"

Pros: "perfect"
Cons: "thank you"

Pros: "I really love the customer service of wheel chair for my mom , he was super nice , could not believe that he took care of my mom untile her seat , amazing . His name was Brooks Vestal , I will never forget this flight"

Pros: "Stewardesses were nice"
Cons: "Captain did not show. Had to wait 45 minutes for a new crew!"

Pros: "Ditto"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled a few minutes before boarding announcement. All indication prior to that was flight was on schedule. Wasted 4 hours after struggling to get another flight."

Pros: "On time, new plane."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very friendly"
Cons: "Since I could not check in the day before I was not able to change my seat. The gate agent was not helpful"

Cons: "Sat on the plane for over an hour at the gate. Then it took another 30 minutes to taxi and take off. No food, drinks or restroom b"

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "2 hour plus delay. After we boarded an additional delay due to maintenance paperwork. I missed part of a work meeting because of this."

Cons: "Other than the flight being delayed it was a good flight"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Delayed luggage"

Pros: "I missed my flight and the front counter was very, very cheerful at 8pm and helpful. I was able to get on the last flight. There was no food or entertainment, but it's a short flight. I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "My flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Having to spent the night here at the airport. I'm still here waiting. I was rebooked on a 11:55am flight for this morning 7/19/16. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Took off early!"
Cons: "One stuartist was very frank and unwelcoming."

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."

Pros: "finally reached our destination"
Cons: "germany was apparently having a strike. all flights were cancelled. we were made to wait overnight. then sent to frankfurt. then sent to venice. couldnt land there. we landed in bologna italy. then made to wait overnight. then we flew to rome. then we flew to chisinau... finally. what was initially supposed to be 18hr flight. turned into a 5 day trip. i want a refund!"

Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."

Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "I liked the boarding process. The staff were nice people too."
Cons: "The plane made a horribly alarming screeching sound before takeoff. WiFi was out. The snacks tasted like stale trail mix from a Fresno gas station."

Pros: "This plane had nice seats with comfortable room!"

Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew were friendly and a smooth sailing flight."

Pros: "did not enjoy my flight whatsoever."
Cons: "they had to change me and about 10 other peoples flights because of the delays from "cloud cover" (what the hell?? terrible excuse) then the attendant LIED to me about where my bag would go. i missed my flight because of this, had to get re routed to san diego over 2 hours from my house, and my bag was sent to john wayne so i had to drive ANOTHER hour ans a half in traffic out of my way all because that illiterate moron of a flight attendant didn't know how to communicate with her coworkers about where our bags would be or how we could get them. absolutely never flying united again. horrible. what an awful day. they DO NOT deserve my hard-earned money, and the people deserve to know how truly crappy their service is."

Cons: "I did not make it on time to a wedding because of the delay & problem with the plane."

Pros: "Plane was clean, crew was efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, baggage took 20-30 minutes on the opposite end to be unloaded."

Cons: "Poor management of delayed flight and boarding"

Pros: "The plane was very nice and comfortable. There was a slight delay but we were kept well informed."

Cons: "It was FREEZING which made it impossible to sleep despite being exhausted from the extreme flight delays. Two issues (one was maintenance, the other was a passenger not feeling well) caused delays up to about 90 min!"

Pros: "The way they said "Hello" to me. Other than that, the water was good."
Cons: "Everything else. My flight was delayed for weather, and I missed my boarding by 2 MINUTES, and they rejected me at the gate, and told me my seat was already taken by stand-by. Then the lady I went to see at the customer service desk was rude, and rejected me from first class even though it was THEIR MISTAKE I was booked there. Then I didn't even land at LAX! I had to take another flight that landed at Ontario so I can make my appointment on time. Will NEVER travel with United again!"

Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely amazing! I really don't think I've ever had such lovely and respectful people working my flight before."
Cons: "I really have no complaints about this flight. It was organized, well cared for, and an overall very easy experience!"

Cons: "Was told I could sit next to my travel partner but when we went to check in at the boarding gate, we did not have seats together...."

Cons: "Unfriendly crew. Small, cramped seats. Issues with assigned seats. In-flight entertainment is cost only - i.e. no free option."

Cons: "There was a one hour delay in our boarding and departure times which cut into our travel times."

Cons: "Never made it to Sna. Whiched me to lax because that was fastest time back. Wasted more money on uber to get home from la"

Pros: "I ALWAYS LOVE THE SMILING FACES OF THE CREW"
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT"

Pros: "The flight out to Idaho."
Cons: "The flight home"

Pros: "The free inflight entertainment was very good."
Cons: "I was very upset that the gate agent stated that the overhead bins were full and that I would need to check my carry on bag, which i did. However upon boarding the plane, there were multiple overhead bins that were actually empty. I do not appreciate being lied to by the gate agent and being forced to check my bag when there was plenty of overhead bin space available. Moreover, I waited for nearly 30 minutes for my then checked bag to come through the baggage carousel after deplaning. This is far too long to have to wait for a bag after a 5.5 hour flight, especially when it was a carry on bag I was forced to check despite there being ample room in the overhead bins. Very disappointing and unnecessary aggrevation. Additionally, there was some slight turbulence during the flight for which the captain turned on the seat belt sign and everyone was requested to return to their seats. A few minutes later there were still some people standing in the aisles waiting to use the restroom, at which point a female flight attendant came on the intercom and stated, "I will try to make this as simple as possible for you to understand..." She then carried on explaining in a very rude and sarcastic tone the safety reasoning behind asking the standing passengers to return to their seats. While her frustration with people not returning to their seats was understandable, her tone of voice and sarcastic demeanor was not professional, and quite unappreciated. My overall experience with United could have been much more pleasant but for these instances. I feel these couple of bad experiences could have been easily prevented which would have led to a much more enjoyable experience with United. Unfortunately, because of these things, I will think twice about flying with United in the future."

Pros: "There were no delays."

Pros: "Good, courteous service -- on-time performance"
Cons: "Heating and cooling systems were not working well, and my outlet had no power during the flight."
