Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The plane ride was smooth!"

Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"

Pros: "Boarding went well."
Cons: "Crew could be more attentive. They avoided passengers most of the time."

Pros: "I reached y destination."
Cons: "One flight attendant yelled at me for switching seats, even though I had asked permission to move seats. Another flight attendant clumsily kicked me when leaning over to serve another passenger. After living in Japan, it's pretty rough to see the low bar of American customer service."

Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"

Pros: "The flight landed early. Check-in staff were great."
Cons: "Boarding was a debacle. Flight was oversold. Passenger had trouble boarding when their group was called."

Pros: "Crew was great"

Pros: "Crews were friendly"

Pros: "Comfort + was nice."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two other men. I was given my seat by the gate. It would have been nice if they placed my more strategically. That might be asking too much but seems reasonable."

Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."

Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"

Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"

Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."

Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"

Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Comfortable seat for a short trip."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delayed and then arrived at airport and sat on tarmac for too long waiting for clearance to go to gate"

Cons: "Aiirlines always want to try and chargel extra money for everything. If you purchase tickets back in February and still can't sit with your significant other that's a problem to me."

Pros: "Great service, on time."
Cons: "Could not print subsequent AeroMexico flight segment boarding pass."

Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Seats, the whole flight experience"

Cons: "The worst"

Pros: "The staff was efficient and kind"
Cons: "The plane was late for weather reasons and they overbooked the flight they had to offer $400 for next flight wasn’t until the next morning.. no entertainment system on plane"

Cons: "Gate agent not friendly"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."

Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."

Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."

Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."

Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."

Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"

Pros: "Helpful crew, more food than usual, entertainment system and choices."
Cons: "Didn't get meal request even though we did on flight to Europe and despite phone agent working to generate and verifying them before both flights."

Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."

Pros: "Crew was tentative."
Cons: "Lady besides me was eating something that smelt bad."

Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"

Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"

Pros: "I've never seen such a modern and easy to use entertainment system before. All the movies are complimentary."

Pros: "Was on time, in fact early. Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The CRJ is just very small. No room in the overheads, no room below. Seat didn't recline, all average carryons have to be gate checked, the usual. Well it still beats driving!"

Pros: "Staff was great, flight o time."

Pros: "After canceled, Delta had a hotel and found new flight for next day. Shuttle to and from hotel provided."
Cons: "Ten gate changes. Rescheduled for 15 to 45 minutes each time for 6 hours, this lead passengers to believe flight would still happen. Which a backup flight was not booked. Frustration!"

Pros: "Pleasant crew. Efficient loading and gate-check."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. Very small overhead bins."

Pros: "I got rerouted to make it to destination on time (almost)"
Cons: "I received a notification my original flight was delayed and the option proposed was so tight I could not even make it to the airport even if I was 20 minutes away. I would have loved to see all my options right after this text alert."

Cons: "It's was my kids first time fying and no entertainment. Wi-Fi didn't work. And the kandng was a bit scary."

Pros: "Pilot was informative."

Cons: "Have to pay for WiFi"

Pros: "Awesome roomy seat right behind business class. Could not have asked for better! And it was a gorgeous new aircraft."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Sitting next to a bunch of crying babies"

Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."

Cons: "Food and WiFi connection was horrible. Crews were unfriendly."

Pros: "Poor airplane not have nothing"

Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."

Pros: "+ Last minute aisle seat + Middle seat empty"
Cons: "- Food was passable (chicken and rice for lunch) - Mediocre breakfast"

Cons: "Closed gate early and left me stranded. The AA employees could care less about you. They are hired for the rudeness and indifference."

Cons: "Website is still slow to update trip delays, not a problem today though!"

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: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"

Pros: "Half empty and on time"

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Check in counter needed more help-line very long"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "the seats were pretty uncomfortable, that was my main problem with the flight."

Cons: "Built in headrests on the seats."

Cons: "Unclear pricing for carry on bag, could have saved $30 by paying at the ticket counter (even though I was sent an eticket and boarding pass); got stuck paying $50 at the gate."

Cons: "Everything went quickly and smoothly. Great flight; even the weather was less turbulent than expected."

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!!"

Cons: "Check in."

Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Runs late but no updated to arrival board, the attendant was rude when asked what time they thought the plane might be leaving."

Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."

Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and smiled a lot. Non stop flight from easy and for me, convenient airports. I knew food cost extra so i brought my own."
Cons: "I knew my comfort would be cramped so that was expected. My only complaint was we couldn't understand the boarding instructions at the gate when they were calling zones. The microphone stunk! So because we couldn't understand,, people got in line who shouldn't have yet, and others didn't get in line that should have which seemed to really annoy some mouthy jerk in zone 5....who then had to turn around while boarding bc he forgot his phone, lol. Karma. So, that was my only entertainment and it was pretty great."

Cons: "The seating is terrible. Everyone is like sardines packed away."

Cons: "Flight was very late. Have to pay $45 for a carry-on bag. Seats were uncomfortable and have to pay for all snacks and drinks including water."

Pros: "No Delays All went smooth & arrived early!"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Ground personnel"

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: "Boarding process"

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: "On time and very efficient"

Cons: "Sent email out asking for volunteers to reschedule her flight. Got on the plane our seats were not the same as selected. And we paid more to select our seats. Friend of ours seat was switched also and instead of him sitting next to his wife he sat next to a person who did not have an assigned seat he was extremely large and he was hanging off The seat into the aisle I noticed an empty seat and had to ask the stewardess if he could switch seats instead of the stewardess offering on her own. The flight out was delayed approximately one hour various mechanics coming on and off plane until finally we were able to leave."

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

Cons: "Entire flight experience."

Pros: "Best flight for its Price. It was on time."

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."

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: "At least I arrived to Oakland eventually. A one hour flight turned into a 7 hour wait and flight"
Cons: "7 hours from Vegas to Oakland. I could have driven. I deserve a reufind voucher"

Cons: "My return flight was rescheduled for a day later."

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

Pros: "Clean plane and nice crew."
Cons: "We waited for over 2 hours for takeoff after we had boarded."

Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."

Pros: "Finally got home!"
Cons: "Flight was Delayed taking off by 2 1/2 hours due to mechanical issues. This flight along with the four hour delay when I flew to Orlando is a disaster. Probably the last time Allegiant will be flown!"

Cons: "Not clean"

Cons: "Seats were made of stone."

Pros: "I was asleep."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped."

Pros: "The entertainment is amazing. Did not expect it. Just download the UA app and it is connected to your device"

Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."

Pros: "Promptness"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The fact that I got fully refunded, even though I still lost out on $500+."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 12, and all that Kept happening was me receiving text messages about delays pushing my departure time back to 5:35pm. I missed a big birthday event I was throwing for my class that I teach, lost out on money spent for the event and missed out on all the memories made that night. I never got to leave, ended up cancelling my flight. What a waste of time. Seems to always happen when I fly through United."

Pros: "i was rebooked and am still on my way"
Cons: "i was delayed in ONT, making my flight an almost 24 hour trip from vONT to my destination. not fun had to reschedule car rental. luckily, they did not charge extra"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada flight from Ontario to SFO was operated by United. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and we ended up missing our connection. The customer service on the phone from both Air Canada and United would not take responsibility and continued to advise to call the other company to reschedule the flight. Not only did we miss our connection but our checked bag was rerouted onto another flight with no formal notification."

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Que acomoden a las parejas juntas."
Cons: "Asiento incomodo"

Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."

Pros: "I liked nothing about my flights."
Cons: "I hated that my first flight was delayed a whole day and I had to fly out of a different airport to get to eugene. To add coming home I tried to upgrade my flight to Ontario to an earlier time and they refused to do so and said it would cost $75. I felt the least the airline could do was let me fly home an hour earlier since they delayed my flight a whole day but that didn't happen."

Cons: "The plane smelled like sewage and it was extremely cold inside the plane for the entire duration of the flight."

Pros: "Upon arrival at my gate departing to Durham with a 2 year old handful. I was excited to hear the attendant call for travelers with small children to board first. The thought of boarding at the same time as everyone else was giving me anxiety."
Cons: "Once I shuffled through tons disgruntled travelers because of my "child privilege" the attendant rolled her eyes and took a deep breath at the amount of time it took me to get to my ticket. Mind you, it makes sense I would have it somewhere convenient, but like I said single traveller, 2 year old handful. She scanned my ticket and flogged her hair in the air telling me take my stuff to the front of the plane. While the other attendant tagged all my items."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Long wait for the flight delay, Long wait for take off, long wait pulling into gate. No outlet for rechargING phone, same on flight."

Cons: "Very Rude while talking to me at the airport. Was not happy to assist me and other passengers even though it was the air-line mistake for cancelling the flight and delaying the flight. Will never fly with this airline ever again."

Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."

Pros: "What did I like like that the pilot let us know what was going on on every moment and the stewardess was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable last flight 30 minute flight took an hour if not more and not knowing what gate my next flight is until I get there"

Pros: "This was a short flight. The only issue was the boarding. Took a while for me to get to my seat."

Cons: "The plane landed to San Francisco earlier than scheduled, but we could not get off the plane due to the gate not available. We were stuck on plane for about half an hour and I really worried about making my connection. I hope such arrangements are conducted more smoothly."

Pros: "nothing totally a rip off"
Cons: "I paid 125 for my hockey bag. Flight was delayed but no email or anything. Changing my flight was miserable staff so rude and people on phones can barely speak"

Cons: "TSA took forever, other than that. My flight boards at 0540 and I got there exactly at 0545. The plane already made its way to the runway and wouldn't wait an extra 10 mins for passengers to enter."

Pros: "Three hours late. No in flight snack since the weather was too bad for the flight attendant to bring a cart down the aisles. Pretty old plane, so kind of uncomfortable. But the staff was really nice and friendly for it being the holiday season, so they get all two stars."

Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight was expensive and they wouldn't let us or anyone place carry ons in the over head bin. It was an expensive ticket and didn't include checked bags ($25 more). Carry-ons wound up being "stowed". It would have been nice to know before I bought the tickets that I needed a smaller carry on."

Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"

Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs!"

Cons: "I paid good money to be back by 6am however I was delayed and had flights cancelled which made me get home 10 hours later than I should have. This was an overnight flight, so all the places to buy food were closed- United didn't offer snacks or blankets or really anything for the troubles. There were kids also stranded."

Cons: "The cramped conditions. By the way, please add a "N/A" or "not relevant" or "not interested" option to your rating selections. Or allow categories to be left not rated. There was no entertainment on my flight and even if there was I probably wouldn't use it. I don't want to leave a rating at all for that but there's no way not to."

Pros: "It was on time And very convenient"

Pros: "We were not given seats together..."
Cons: "Busy and not well managed and we bought seats well in advance"

Cons: "Received several text messages announcing further delays in flight..."

Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight. We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."

Cons: "They over booked my flight, so I would have missed it had someone not gave up their seat for me. This was extremely disappointing begin that I had booked months in advance. I even picked my seats!"

Pros: "Once on the plane, the crew were great."
Cons: "not much leg room"

Cons: "Ticket agents did not communicate with passengers on why there was a delay and weren't willing to help passengers find alternate routes to their destination."

Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly and boarding was fast"
Cons: "There was gooey stuff in the cracks of the inside paneling near the seams where something had seeped in, but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."

Pros: "Good"
