Cons: "Humor doesn't cover the corporate decision to operate a cattle-car."
Cons: "I’m a bit annoyed and disappointed.. when I purchase y travels with SW I always request ( wheelchairs) and every time I’m forced to wait for one when getting to my destination. Why is that?? So inconvenient. Can you improve on that service?"

Cons: "Flight delay of more than 90 mins"
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Perfect flight, plus flight attendant gave me a free glass of wine! J was friendly and cracked up when young passenger said he deserved a free beer. Probably had a SW free beverage ticket! On time! No wait gate in Ontario! Great landing!"

Pros: "They were good and helpful"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I thought the crew were very nice, courteous and helpful."

Cons: "The flight attendants showing up late due to a late arriving flight."
Pros: "The crew was polite and did a nice job"
Cons: "My seat was in the last role in the back of the plane on the aisle. The other two seats were occupied and I had hardly any room. In fact, my right shoulder was outside of the seat area. Totally uncomfortable!!!"
Cons: "Southwest crews are usually nice or funny but our male attendant was a grump, giving everyone distainful looks as he took drink orders and not uttering a single other word to us. No one seemed to be in a good mood on this crew except for the other guy waving goodbye to us as we deplaned."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and accommodating with the short flight. They were also efficient in getting everyone on the plane."

Pros: "apple juice for the kids"
Cons: "on a clear day from SFO, was delayed about 90 min. They said we're down to one runway with in and out flights."
Pros: "Friendly communicative crew."
Cons: "Everybody hates peanuts. Please consider providing outlets at the seats so we can charge our devices, and little tvs on the backs of the seats. As-is, $8 for internet on a short flight is dumb and my phone can't last very long playing media anyways."
Pros: "Didn't have any issues on this flight. It took a while to take off, but as the captain stated, it was under the control of ATC, and there is nothing Southwest could have done about it. This flight had a PERFECT landing!"
Pros: "The air hostesses!"
Pros: "Baileys with coffee was great. Cookies were good?"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. Flight was on time and landed early. Flying while the sunset is happening is amazing... nature's entertainment"

Cons: "Really comfortable. Great flight"
Pros: "Crew was great, the flight was good. Food is good but expensive."

Pros: "Excellent flight"
Pros: "Makeup was on point!"
Pros: "Seats were great."
Cons: "Food was less than acceptable. Service could have been better."

Pros: "Features was nice crew was great"
Cons: "Could have been on time"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Over all quick experience"
Cons: "Don’t really lnow"
Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."
Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Tons of legroom"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats and aisles are ridiculously close together and chlostophobic. I was in an aisle seat and was constantly being bumped by the carts, crew and passengers even though I had my arms within my seat area."
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?"
Cons: "They closed the check-in counter 40 minutes prior to check in AND the flight was delayed 10 minutes. So even though I was at the airport a full hour before departure, I was not allowed to check in and I missed the flight. I had to be rerouted through Seattle and got home 8 hours later than planned. Very frustrating."
Pros: "The Service was AMAZING!!!. I will ALWAYS continue to Fly Alaskan Airlines."
Cons: "Crowded plane TBH lmao...But overall thal I can REALLY complain about."
Pros: "Marissa was fantastic..! Great everything..!"
Pros: "I had an empty seat and the stewardess asked me if it was ok to move a person, so I agreed. She gave me miles just for that."
Pros: "Staff an airplane"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight attendants."
Pros: "The burger was decent.. crew was efficient helpful if humorless, it arrived pretty much on time."
Cons: "Somewhat disorganized on the ground in Puerto Vallarta."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Pros: "Super efficient and quick, it was an awesome flight!"
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."
Pros: "boarding, staff"
Cons: "all good"
Cons: "The flight left without me and six other passengers, despite the fact that I got to the gate at 5:30am for a 5:45am flight."
Pros: "The people who work for Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "I had a carry-on suitcase, but it wouldn't fit. It had to be checked, which was what I was trying to avoid."
Pros: "On time and efficient service, Alaska made the entire journey easy and terrific. I will continue to use this airline it is a mile above the rest."
Pros: "didn't crash"
Cons: "sat in a middle seat"
Pros: "Apparently mechanical problems early in the day put our jet 89 min behind, but all involved worked the magic to achieve only a 60 minute late arrival. Loved the sparkling water (she was kind enough to make mine vegan even : - )."
Cons: "Late start and long taxi and long bus rides. BUT, the conversation with the new found friend was off the chain. I'm cool with the Sonoma means a taxi and bus portion - worth the fare."
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."
Pros: "The crew were even more friendly and chatted with me, the flight was more empty so I had an entire row to myself and was able to sit near the lavatory. I was ablessed to watch "Hidden Figures" during the flight, a movie I had been anxious to watch but had not had the time. And the coffee was delicious! Whenever I make my own travel arrangements I always fly with Alaska!"
Cons: "Bit of a bumpy ride due to some turbulence, however that cannot be helped."
Pros: "Very delayed flight and bags late"
Pros: "Up graded to business and it made all the difference in the world. I was not looking forward to the trip and thoroughly enjoyed it."

Pros: "The defective hydraulic pump was replaced efficiently and worked. Very much liked landing at Orange County airport. Very easy airport to navigate."
Cons: "Being delayed by an hour."
Pros: "On time. Big space. Friendly attendance"
Cons: "None"
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."
Pros: "It is a very nice touch to be offered a complimentary beer. What a treat."
Cons: "The bathroom was not nice. No sink to wash hands seems unreasonable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, quick loading."
Cons: "Seats keep getting tighter and shared armrests are difficult with adults sitting next to each other. Very slow unloading. Too many people using overheads since you started charging for checked luggage."
Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Outdated plane"
Cons: "Guess I am old but there should be more room on a flight ."
Pros: "The crew did a good job in announcing the arrival of the flight and where we are at and how far we are flying overall did an excellent job"

Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."

Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We didn’t get offered a snack or drink."

Pros: "The crew rocked!!!! Professional and fun. We enjoyed the music."
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work well. Still great flight."
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."
Cons: "Late arrival"
Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"

Pros: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work the entire flight"
Pros: "Snacks & drinks & TV movies good"
Cons: "One hostess was very rude & slow forget our headphones Kept getting me to help her with getting attention of other hostesses also very bad at giving snacks and kept my husband and another man waiting for 10 mins while she gathered rubbish despite repeated requests which would have been easy as she was at the front of plane obviously unsuited for this position"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"
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: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Did not like that they still made me pay a fee to bring my support dog aboard. Stood at the special services counter just to pay a fine for my medical animal."
Pros: "Friendly staffs and on time flights"
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: "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: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"
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"
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
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!!"
Cons: "Delay on return flight"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
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"
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: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."
Cons: "Sat in Row 34. Engine noise was overwhelming."
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"
Pros: "My Delta flight from Salt Lake to Orlando was the dreaded redeye. Flight was packed, no empty seats. I had a middle row seat. But the plane was new and the seats were comfortable. The flight arrived early.I slept or tried to sleep the entire flight. No complaints."

On our return trip we were able to get on an earlier flight. American airlines made it so easy to do & at no cost!

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."
Cons: "American crew and gate agents are awesome!!!!"
Pros: "They looked for 18 people to get off the plane because of weight restrictions and the process was very disorganized"
Cons: "Organization"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. They offered to valet my bag as I was boarding when they saw that it was cumbersome for me. The stewardess put me in a great seat when I was helpful to another passenger upon boarding. Also everyone seemed to be quite attentive and helpful during the covid situation, where people are a bit unnerved. I appreciated the effort to make everyone happy."
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough, but the rest of the flight was a dream. Definitely one of the better experiences Ive had in my 34 years of flying."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Cons: "3 hr delay and had to change gates"
Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"
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: "Convenience"
Cons: "To change a flight they want $200! That is why I changed to Southwest."
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
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: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"
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: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Cons: "Delay"
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: "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."
Cons: "Smallness of seats"
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
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."
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
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: "Easy to get on and off"
Cons: "cramped"
Cons: "-No pillows nor blankets were offered"
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: "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."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."
Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."

Had to cancel flight as it was delayed by 12 hours

Pros: "Crew was very nice and very competent."
Cons: "I'm trying to wrap my head around the # of flights that are delayed or cancelled, when I fly on Allegiant. Perhaps, I have just had bad luck. The flight was delayed a total of 5 times for a total delay of about 4 hours. The original scheduled flight was for 6:35 pm and we didn't actually leave the ground until almost 10:30. We kept getting pushed back. I am not certain if it was due to weather (in another area) or required flight crew rest, both of which I would understand. There was no reason posted that I saw. I have a 10 yo son who has Autism and should be in bed no later than 10 pm, preferably 9 pm. I appreciate all that Allegiant does for the military, and therefore, will continue to fly on your airline. I will NOT, however, take any more evening flights as most of the ones I've flown on have either been delayed or altogether cancelled. Again, I truly appreciate your recognition of retired and active duty military. 8/10 is a B and can be improved upon with more clarevoyance and keeping on-time flights."
Cons: "It's a low cost, no frills flight option. But we left and landed on-time and that's what I wanted."
Cons: "A plan to deal with a hostile mom with a screaming kid that was out of control."
Pros: "Boarding was super smooth,"
Cons: "Offer some type of entertainment, ie internet or something"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Not bad for the price, convenience beats all"
Cons: "First class"
Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "OMG, miffed and aggravated right now!! Currently on Allegiant Flight 1355. PIE to CVG A non-eating flight. These POSs MFers decide to have a friggen pizza party in the middle of the flight"
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: "Seats are uncomfortable after about 40 minutes. Very cramped."
Pros: "Cheap and direct no frills"
Pros: "Love Allegiant!"
Pros: "Comfortable and inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "It was all good!"
Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."
Pros: "Cost of reservation"
Cons: "Expensive extras (added up to more than a flight on another airline would have been)- carry-ons, in-flight snacks and drinks, etc."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Earlier delay notification"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still in Reno. Aircraft broke down"
Pros: "The prices are good. That's pretty much it. I can't say anything else"
Cons: "you get what you pay for. Both flights delayed. One delayed for 12 hours. limited days to fly out"
Pros: "Cost of flight"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Couldn’t even get a cup of water."
Cons: "Fight was changed then late"
Pros: "Direct flight in less than 3 hours"
Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"
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: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Pros: "It is hard to beat the price of tickets for this airline. I love the price; that the flights are direct & almost always on time; that the staff, from the flight attendants to ticket agents, all seem professional, helpful & friendly; and that the planes are clean and seats well cushioned & comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like that the seats don't lean back & that they are very close together with little leg/knee room. Altho the base price for the flights is cheap, they charge for "extras", including making your reservation by phone instead of online, printing out your boarding pass &choosing your seat. There's a fee for carry on's as well as regular size luggage. If you don't prepay for your luggage or if your luggage weighs more than 40 lbs, they charge $50, instead of $25. They not only charge for food, but also for water or any beverage. If you are prepared for a no frills flight & are willing to sit separately from your travel companions, etc. then this is a great way to save time (direct flights) and money. I will choose to fly with them again, even tho My husband & I prob. won't get to sit together. If you know what to expect & plan for it, it is a great way to save."
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: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."
Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"
Cons: "Cut my already short trip even shorter. I used this airline twice now, and both times I was delayed."
Pros: "On time and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Old plane,"
Pros: "Free bags for military. Friendly, efficient, on time, price. It was all good."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Love this flight from Belleville to Punta Gorda. On time and great crew."
Cons: "Nothing!!"
Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."
Cons: "All of the hidden fees. I was initially charged more than $200 over the price I was quoted on Kayak.com and then had to pay an extra $45 to bring 1 carry-on each. I do not plan to use Kayak.com again for these reasons and will not recommend this site to anyone"
Pros: "Departure was on time and arrival was a little early! Nonstop flight was great!"
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped and their is no pocket on the seat back to put your water bottle or book"
Pros: "The original price points for the direct flights are wonderful. You can actually book the week of a trip and save hundreds because those prices will probably still be the best. That is, until you learn about all of their extra fees."
Cons: "Wow, they sure do add extra fees for everything. Watch out. In the end, I bet it was cheaper to book with a major airline like American. They charge extra for each bag, including your carry- on, when you pick your seat you are charged depending on where it is in the aircraft, if you want a drink or food on the plane you will have to pay, if you do not print your ticket prior to arriving to the aiport they will charge you, etc."
Pros: "Cleanliness, friendliness, on time."
Cons: "Charging for drinks and snacks snacks.."
Pros: "Last week I flew to Florida on this airline. I quickly wrote a stellar review because the flight crew was sincere, nice and kind. Apparently, that is against policy and on this flight there was no hint of that nice attitude. No frills, no courtesy, just transportation."
Cons: "The flight got cancelled - trip had to be completely rearranged."
Cons: "Even snacks and water are only available for a fee. Seats do not have much padding and are not comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was super easy with Allegiant. This was our second time flying with this airline, and even though you feel like you get nickeled and dimed to death, the overall price is still much lower than any other airline. The plane was clean and the crew, both ways were awesome and in-tune with their passengers. Don't be fooled by the pricing, this is really an outstanding airline, we will fly again with Allegiant!"
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."
Pros: "On time. Courteous stsgg. Great price."
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."
Pros: "The Bacardi"
Cons: "How small the bottles are."
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: "Really smooth flight, quick and easy to Las Vegas..."
Cons: "Paying for checked luggage..."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"
Pros: "I am a little disabled... Am in a electric wheelchair, can't speak very well, this was my first flight alone and my chair would not lock in upright position after unfolding it. (If I leaned back on the backrest it would collapse/fold up. I learned I had to lean forward to keep it up.) Everyone was very accommodating and very helpful! At the Provo Airport they gave me a regular wheelchair and I showed them how to remove the lithium battery, remove and stow the joystick and how to fold my chair. No drinks or snacks unless you pay for them. On arrival I waited for everyone else to exit but also took advantage of the lavatory to relieve my bladder ;-). They were waiting trying to unfold my chair. I gave them instructions to step there and lift on the arms and up it went! I showed them where the joystick was, they pulled it out and connected it to the arm, put the battery in the bag, plugged it in, zipped up the bag and I pressed the green button and Voila! it was done! Thank you to the Awesome Allegiant Crew!"
