Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Having built in TV, better complimentary snack food selection."
Pros: "Boarding was unsatisfactory. I and my family were the initial few people who boarded the flight. We were asked to check in the bag saying the bag was little big while many people who boarded after us had bigger bags. We had a carry on roller bag, small carryon bag and a back pack for the 5 people from the family and we were asked to check in the bag. While people who had 2 bags per person with the carry on roller bags bigger than ours was allowed to carry the bags inside."

Pros: "Selection of entertainment on a BYO-device was good, especially in the movies category"
Cons: "Weather-related delay is certainly not Alaska’s fault, but the 10-minutes waiting for a gate after landing was excruciating after such a long delay in the first place"
Cons: "It is much better now"
Cons: "Ventilation, flight was stuffy."
Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."

Pros: "Timing-Fasrer than scheduled"

Pros: "The crew was excellent. The entertainment was good."

Cons: "Delayed. Flue season folks. If your sick just don’t travel!"
Cons: "We have been stuck on the plane for an hour and have not received any exact communication as to why. The flight attendants were also giving people a hard time about using the restroom when the plane was not even moving. Worst flight of my life."
Pros: "Great crew as usually"
Cons: "Hated ORD"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and was great besides the boarding."
Cons: "Boarding seemed to take quite quite awhile, not sure what the deal was but once we were boarded they kicked it into high gear"

Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Pros: "The seat and entertainment"
Cons: "The charge of food I only had cash and my cards did not work so o had to stay hungry all the dam flight"
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."

Pros: "If you have a phone, tablet or laptop, you can watch a bunch of movies for free! No charge whatsoever. I had my laptop and was able to watch two movies and a few TV shows. I also sat in an exit row and had a LOT of leg room. I was really happy."
Cons: "I thought the food choices could've been a little better. Just free biscuit-style cookies."
Cons: "USB port in the flight to charge my phone. But flight didn't have WIFI"
Pros: "The cheese platter was delicious and I like the gogo entertainment. Boarding was very quick, the crew was hepful and kind."
Pros: "The flight crew..."
Cons: "You lost my bag, and it still hasn't come, its a big hassle. Customer service for paying customers is more important than transporting fish. Then entire plane saw the boxes of fish getting loaded on the plane, and half the customers had their bags delayed. Priorities please."
Pros: "I liked the drink service and the general boarding process and flight."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not notified that I was in a section where my seat could not lean back during a cross country flight. I also did not like that the only snacks were super sugary cookies. I would have preferred pretzels."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! I was on my way to my bachelorette party in Portland and they were so sweet, congratulating me and even giving my friends and I free drinks! I would definitely fly them again! LOVED IT! :)"
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "People were nice and made good time on the trip"
Cons: "Wifi was terrible, could not even do basic email work on both my flights to and from Portland. Waste of money and very disappointing. Did not have this issue with Jetblue on my last trip. -sm"
Pros: "Everyone was so kind, thoughtful and timely."
Cons: "Our seats didn't recline, making it hard to rest."
Cons: "My check-in bag was manhandled - the zipper was open, and there were scratches and grease all over."

Pros: "The crew and staff are friendly, efficient and hard working professionals. Great ride!"
Cons: "I tried to order food online before the flight, but I couldn't figure it out."
Pros: "Very accommodating staff"
Cons: "We were asked to exit the plane at Tarmac and I was traveling with 2 little children. There were a lot of stairs to get off the plane and then walk back to terminal and then a lot of stairs were there to get back to terminal. I was hurting in my knee and my kids ears were hurting badly because the pressure was not controlled while landing. It was a very bad experience and I will definitely think twice about flying Alaska again."
Pros: "Seats were not bad - headrests actually fit my head right!"
Cons: "Coffee was super week No movies ORD-JFK"
Cons: "The seats were awful and uncomfortable. Payed 100 dollars extra for even more leg room and barely had any. Such an old plane for such a long flight. The seats in the first row barely fit a female with hips. The in-flight entertainment was staticky and you could barely see the TVs. Overall, one of the worst flights I have taken on JetBlue."
Pros: "Nice crew, nice plane"
Pros: "Complimentary snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Broken seat back, broken tray table, audio input didn't work."
Pros: "Cleo, our fly attendees made us feel right at home!"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, main reason I like this airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "The screens on the back of the seats are showing their age and the controls on the armrests are causing your neighbor to change your channel or the brightness of the screen. Letting everyone stream content to their own devices would probably be a better option, with safe charging available."
Pros: "Service was awesome, 100% recommended"
Cons: "The food can be better."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food was good, especially the beef at dinner"
Cons: "Breakfast omelette was rubbery and really not good. Layover was way too long (4h). Not looking forward to my 11h layover on the way back, but at least JFK is a nice airport and I have lounge access through one of my credit cards"
Cons: "Jetblue the best"
Pros: "Everything was smooth, great service, friendly staff and captain. Arrived ahead of time. Free Wifi. Great inflight entertainment."
Pros: "You can always count on JetBlue for good snacks and free WiFi."
Cons: "But the snacks and free WiFi is not enough to payback the delayed departure experience. Just a week prior, my JetBlue flight was scheduled on time and then three things delayed thre flight for three hours right before we took off and now this! I was told it was due to needing to replace a crew member from another delayed flight. How can that affect so many people? The seat was also super uncomfortable and the back of the cushion was rolling forward, which made it hard to sit for that long. we also didn’t have a gate when we landed so that added on an extra 30minutes. Really disappointed."
Pros: "The rescheduling of my flight via a phone call"
Cons: "The delay of course"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed an hour due to pilot error (we left the gate on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour). This caused me to miss my connecting flight, which stranded me at JFK because they only had one flight per day to my destination. JetBlue's customer service told me I could not reach my destination until the next day, which was unacceptable (I had a morning interview). In fact, the only thing they said they could do was *PARTIALLY* refund my ticket, even though they stranded me in a completely different city. They also said I would "be able to" book a new flight with a different carrier, which cost roughly $400, using my own money. In the end, I spent about an hour talking with customer service until they were "nice enough" to do a partial refund with an additional credit equaling the remainder of my $400 ticket to fly with them in the future. It was still a very poor interaction with customer service."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Took 3+ hours to get in the plane"
Pros: "It was a great trip for the cost."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Free WiFi. Cute vids for Holloween"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "I appreciate that they let families with strollers board after Group A, there seems to be more space than the major carriers, and the snacks are good!"
Cons: "My Satellite XM radio didn’t seem to be working."
Pros: "As always, JetBlue gives one of the best mobile experiences while traveling, excellent flight as always with everyone from the staff very attentive and nice. Good to still be welcomed during the flight to those popcorn chips! An excellent overall experience"
Pros: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Cons: "This flight is 3 + hours delayed, and I think it’s because Jet Blue didn’t have a full flight for the 8:30 am departure, this is unacceptable and I need to be compensated for my time Winston White"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly A lot of options from direct tv and other entertainment programs The seats were wide enough Free Wifi"
Cons: "The plane got 2 hours delayed The screen was too small There was no charger on the plane Food option was limited"
Pros: "That Harry Potter was playing"
Cons: "That our flight got delayed so many times, they changed the departure time to sooner at the last minute and we had to book it to the gate from security, we missed our connecting flight and had to sleep in the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we would have missed our connection in NYC. So we had to cancel the trip."
Pros: "Good snacks, entertainment and excellent WiFi. Boarding was efficient and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "We arrived later for almost 2 hours"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Loudest airplane I've ever flown on! All though there is excellent leg room the seats were the most uncomfortable!!!!"
Pros: "Per usual crew and plan itself were nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 3 hours from scheduled take off"
Cons: "my flight was delayed for 2 hours and there was no compensation for it"
Pros: "Bring her own earphones as then u can listen to their varied entertainment channels. Gave free snacks & there was quite an assortment so I wasn’t stuck w pretzels again. Free soft drinks; nice flight attendants & smooth ride from Chicago to NY"
Cons: "Late boarding with little communication. Equipment failure delayed the flight after pushing from the gate. Additional delay of 10 mins one we got to the destination gate."
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "That you can't turn off the movie"
Pros: "Crew was very hospitable"
Cons: "The headphone jack wasn’t working properly, sound was muffled and fuzzy. Couldn’t enjoy any entertainment provided. The flight was full so I couldn’t ask for another seat either."
Pros: "Free in-flight WiFi service for all travelers on the plane. Many onboard entertainment choices available using individual LCD screen display. Many selections of in-flight meals and beverages available for purchase during your flight. Online seat selection and online check-in were fast and efficient. Additional perks for travelers available online."
Cons: "There was no food included in my flight."
Cons: "Movies didn't work and we were one hour delayed on the runway."
Pros: "The only good things about this flight were: - The crew at the gate were very friendly and attentive - We arrived safely without incident"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 times before boarding. We were delayed 1 more time while on the plane. The pilot told us there was equipment trouble that had been fixed, but there was paperwork to fill out and it would only be a few minutes...and then radio silence for 30 minutes before pulling back. The flight attendants rushed through the pre-flight announcents and I could only understand about 60% of it due to speed, volume and accent. Despite asking me for my drink order, it never came...and I only heard a few soda cans pop open at all. Did they just decide not to serve us? She even gave me a napkin for it. Luckily when they put the snack basket in front of me, there was a tiny bottle of water, which I grabbed...little did I know, that was all I would get. The flight attendants were just tapping in the back of the plane the rest of the flight. They didn’t even bother collecting garbage until we were on final approach. They also never did the normal checks before landing."
Pros: "Crew was happy and friendly"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Seats were comfy."
Cons: "No coffee. Snacks were smashed."
Pros: "They refund me the money"
Cons: "I almost lost my international connection, had to pay double to get my destination on time"

Pros: "I liked my face mask. overnight flight"
Cons: "I don't think there is the option to turn off the TV"
Pros: "Boarding system efficient. Lots of leg room. Choice of snacks. Good service."
Pros: "The check in line was a little long, but moved quickly. Then the unthinkable happened and we got wind of our friend passing just as we got to the front. The woman working at the counter felt so bad for us that she actually moved us into our own row so that we could have the space to grieve. We were also traveling with a dog so that in itself was so kind and accommodating."
Pros: "Entertainment on board"
Cons: "My flights was delayed"
Pros: "Gave me my refund!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 times without sufficient reason. Weather was clear. Had to ask for a refund after the 6th delay. Missed an important event."
Cons: "The ambient lighting used throughout the cabin was too bright and stimulating to let me fall asleep in an overnight flight, should have been dimmed more or turned off. The seats did not help the comfort levels either, should have been able to recline a tad bid more. The carry-on-bag situation is getting out of control, you should crack down on people who bring too many bags or oversized bags that should be checked in instead."
Pros: "Friendly staff and the on board entertainment and snacks"
Cons: "The last time I took JetBlue the flight was delayed by almost 3 hours"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable, good selections"
Cons: "Tv wasn't working well. Sound was crunchy."
Pros: "the plane was good!"
Cons: "the plane boarded late"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, the airline wouldn't provide me with a refund. They also had no other flights to my final destination so I was stranded in Beijing. They also lost my bag in the airport - I fortunately found that. I won't fly air china again"

Pilot was a madman. The landing was the worst I've ever experienced. He seems to have misjudged the ground and hit the runway HARD. My back hurts and my inside organs are sore from the impact. Then as we were taxing to the gate he repeatedly slammed on the breaks so we jerked forward each time with enough force to tug on the seat belt. All the passengers were asking "what happened? What went wrong?" Pilot had an Australian or New Zealand accent.

It was a smooth flight. Nothing untoward happened

The 2 hour delay stunk

They made us check carry ons despite the entire aircraft overhead space being empty

Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Cons: "Rude to passengers and then went to the back and loudly complained about other passengers. Very unprofessional."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "I arrived safely."

Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Hour late"
Cons: "Entertainment app from Go Go didn’t Work."
Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."

Pros: "The crew and pilot were absolutely amazing."
Cons: "This is my 3rd delta flight in a row that has been delayed. I understand these things happen, just extremely frustrating."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent!"
Cons: "That's the flight is clean"
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarded quickly and efficiently. Staff were nice enough but all business."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, choose your own entertainment has new and classic films. Snack selection and quantity were low compared to JetBlue."
Cons: "Took too long to board the plane. Wifi never connected."
Pros: "Very clean plane and comfortable. Great friendly crew and very good service."
Cons: "Wifi service was slow but acceptable. Not a big issue."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Pros: "Got lucky, and got an upgrade!"
Cons: "Good staff on the plane very sweet like. Actually arrived early. Thought we would get breakfast on the flight from Madison Wisconsin to New York City."
Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Delta's free in-flight wi-fi for entertainment (movies, tv, music) on your own device is a big plus. Not so easy to find (there's sparse information in their magazine or seat-back brochure), but once you find it there's a wealth of options."
Pros: "The customer service of the middle aged White frmale FA"
Cons: "The seats were small"

Two hour delay for no reason

Snacks must also be offered on late night flights!!

Super experienced pilot flew a steady flight out of a huge snow storm in Chicago ( no flights were landing and few were leaving) and landed like a feather in a driving rain storm in NYC LaGuardia which is usually a hard, difficult landing airport. Didn't see the flight attendants the entire flight except for boarding. New plane was a dream. Seats comfortable, tons of room for carry- ons and electric at each seat.

From timely boarding and announcements, to handing out sanitizing wipes (did not happen on my outbound flight on Friday) to handing out snacks to good customer service, all good.

Cons: "On time take off would be nice"
Pros: "Despite the poor rating because of the mechanical issue, I will say the pilots did a fantastic job with some pretty choppy air conditions."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour while we were already on the plane. Minor mechanical issue that could’ve been handled at destination. The seat was super uncomfortable and I would’ve appreciated at least some more from the crew, like maybe even a bottle of water or something."
Pros: "AA is always a good time:) I loved the crew, the complimentary service and the comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "A bit more legroom than united airlines. Tvs were a plus. The service was excellent and they give you a full can of soda instead of just a dram."
Cons: "Nothing really it was a great value for the price."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "Didn’t know basic economy has 1 personal item and 1 hand carry and I was told my the staff to pay for baggage my bag was canon soxe btw"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "I was able to choose a seat in Cabin with more leg room and complimentary alcoholic beverage."
Cons: "It was late going to Chicago and late returning to NYC. There were no crackers. I don't like pretzels. The ONLY reason I flew American is because my company paid for it. I absolutely hate LaGuardia. It has a bad spirit."
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"
Pros: "Gates, delays, changes"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. No opportunity for priority boarding. Flight crew no help. Just another hum drum experience."
Pros: "Very quick fight. Faster than anticipated arrival"
Pros: "The available movies and games in personal screen"
Cons: "Seat selection"
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Cons: "The plane was very old."
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "Exit row seat very roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Flight from ORD to LGA delayed even though the plane was already at the gate in ORD. No announcement explaining why it was delayed. What was worse was that after landing at LGA, baggage tagged as Priority did not come out first, it came out much later - after numerous non-priority baggage came out. This is not the first time this has happened at LGA. What's the point of tagging it as Priority if it won't be handled that way?"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays! A few hours. There were liars among their staff!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service and late departures."
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "Almost always on time, captain keeps us updated, friendly airline staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I entered the airport from the beginning everything is fine.On board service is also very thoughtful"
Cons: "I feel I have been treated unfairly. Boarding time. Crew many times took the Americans boarding pass 。when my hands was in half the time。Just because I'm not American?"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No dislikes"
Cons: "The flight was super late."

Love flying Allegiant!!! The only hiccup this time was, they moved my seats, without any notice, so my family was separated for the flight. Frustrating because I paid for seat selection, and my son really does not like flying! Other than that, great as usual!

Flight was delayed over an hour

Had an issue being able to sit with my wife. Wasn’t pleased with how that was resolved. Overall the flight was good. Thought the flight was very smooth

All went as planned.

30 min to get luggage at SRQ! This not what we are paying for.

Worst plane ride ever. So uncomfortable and it ran late was just not a great company for us

Pros: "The crew was upbeat and friendly"
Cons: "Flight was late, there was no sense of urgency to get the passengers on the plane, it left almost an hour late, no chargers on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was good but baggage claim took forever. The seating was not well arranged. The seats were very uncomfortable. The weight limit of the bags were unreasonable"
Cons: "Better seats could be better"
Pros: "Great crew. Everything was on time. Loved it"
Cons: "Major delays, no communication from airline"
Pros: "The gate crew was absolutely wonderful. They made the delay bearable. The were very entertaining and friendly."
Cons: "The delay. Couldn’t be helped, but still annoying."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Depart on time Not Loose my luggage Track all luggage every step of the way instead of crisis management only when a lost luggage claim is filed"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient, the plane was really clean."
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, and if at least water was served (even if snacks and other drinks cost money)."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable after about 40 minutes. Very cramped."
Pros: "Allegiant is a Budget airline. Good fares and great service. Nonstop service to less traveled destinations"
Cons: "Nothing for the price."
Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."
Pros: "Nice pilot and crew."
Cons: "The warning about alcohol was a bit sarcastic, but I guess in today's world people who have acted out are the real culprits..."
Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super rude personelle"
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "Friendly pilot."
Cons: "My reading light kept flashing off and on. So I couldn't read my book."
Cons: "I bought a flight that I had to end up cancelling - when I called to cancel - within the 24 hour period, they would not let me cancel despite text on my confirmation saying that there would be a free cancellation within the 24 hours. Extremely annoyed that there was a blatant miscommunication. I did not end up going on the flight but was unable to get a refund which seems ridiculous given that there was text on the website explicitly saying this was their policy."
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly and courteous and even added some humor. Flight was on time for departure and 20 min early on arrival. Couldn’t beat the fare. Only airline to fly direct non stop to my location."
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks or snacks. Seats did not recline. Fortunately only a little over a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding, very nice crew. I would definitely recommend spending the extra for Priority, it is much faster."
Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Cons: "Allegiant Crew were very snotty and sassy... bossy even, like they were all having a bad day. The flight itself felt like we were falling out of the sky the entire time. Up and down up and down. Seat back tray tables were extremely small."
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, even water"
Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."
Cons: "Reviewed 9 hours because a crew member didn’t show. Was originally told 6 hours delay only 20 minutes before the flight was due to leave. Received two $8 meal vouchers and rude and slow service from the entire ground crew."
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
Pros: "It got us there and back for a descent price. The flight was fine but the seats are not comfortable and do not recline. I wouldn't suggest Allegiant for anything more than 2 hours and that was even pushing it."
Cons: "We arrived 3.5 hours early and the line was very long. They must have had a system glitch but didn't communicate to anyone in the line as to what was going on. When it did come time to board, they told everyone in the line that was going to Cincinnati that we couldn't check in until 2 hours before the departure time. Apparently there were some other flights that left before us. If they had told us to keep our place in line and to let other people through, that wouldn't have been a problem. But, they didn't. Their own website says you should check baggage at least 2 hours before your flight and no more than 4 hours before. They took it upon themselves to change the rules on people who arrive early. Then, once they no longer had anyone else to check in, they changed their rules again and start checking in people for Cincinnati about 2.5 hours ahead of time. A little communication and brain power from the staff would have gone a long way. After all that mess, the flight was delayed leaving about 15 minutes without any updates from Allegiant either."
Pros: "I chose this flight knowing it was gonna be a little cramped and no snacks. But I loved the price, so I booked it. The unexpected bonus was the crew. They were down to earth and funny."
Pros: "The price was unbeatable, especially if you don't pay for a checked bag, carry-on, or a soda on the flight. Very smooth flight as well."
Cons: "The plane interior looks like it was gutted, then fitted with hard, plastic seats. No headrests, no privacy for the flight attendants. Everything costs extra."
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."
Pros: "Fare and friendly staff."
Cons: "No wi-fi."
Pros: "Wow so nice to have an economical fare to Baltimore! On time, courteous, uneventful flight. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Mostly the Price! Wonderful Crew Too!"
Cons: "Wish they had flights on Friday and later on Sunday..."
Pros: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"
Cons: "Bad service. Long waits. No directions at airport from the airline and counter service slow"
Pros: "The fare"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. There's NOTHING complimentary not even water"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled - trip had to be completely rearranged."
Cons: "Two planes of passengers in gate area delayed takeoff without warning or information."
Pros: "Arrived an hour before flight. Check in took 25 min and tsa 30 minutes. Tried to go through expedite line but agent refused to let me even though flight was leaving in 30 minutes. I have received better treatment in new York airports than here in Myrtle Beach. Who would have thought. There were 3 others that missed the flight. Why would they not just let's be expedited?"
Cons: "See above"
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: "I liked how friendly the staff were and how everything was done on time."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and old. Was nauseated on both flights."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Paying for my carry on bag."
Cons: "The flight from Las Vegas was changed twice"
