Pros: "The crew was so nice especially the man who came to thank me for keeping my body out of the way of those who were serving and those using the bathroom. My husband an I were in the last row. He offered me a free drink, which I didn’t accept but I felt so good."

Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."
Cons: "Passengers should have the option to ask for additional snacks."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and graciously got the hot tea I wanted."

Cons: "Everything was good!"

Pros: "Being in First Class"
Cons: "Heavier food selection would be appreciated."
Cons: "we began the boarding process late, which can be understandable, although the plane was there pretty early. Once the boarding began, someone, I presume the gate agent, essentially gave a countdown to hhow many minutes were left until the flight could have an "on time departure". I travel nearly every week so I value being on time. However, a minute by minute call to hurry up on a flight that was sold out was over the top. There was mumbling among the passengers, to the point of someone joking "Free cookies and water if we make it on time?" Just a bad gate experience, but bad enough that peopoe were commenting, and I waited for someone from the cockpit to del\part so I could mention it to them."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Cons: "Friday when I supposed to depart at 7:21 am my flight was delayed to 6:00 pm and yesterday when I supposed to depart from New York at 7:21 pm my flight was delayed until 11:20 pm was horrible! I never again i would took Delta because I call a day before my departure to see if they would help me changing my flight by morning and they couldn’t they told me that i have to pay $300 dollars."
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "Quick, safe flight. Very good pilot."
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work at all during the 2.5 hour flight. Was very disappointed."
Pros: "The welcoming and kindness of flight attendants and staff"
Cons: "That headsets are not free and the leg space seemed tighter than usual"
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Didn’t know that I didn’t have a window on the row I was on"
Cons: "When the passenger in front reclines their seat it was in my face The legroom wasn’t terrible but I had a hard time even reading since it was so close"
Pros: "Aircraft appeared to be brand new"
Pros: "I always enjoy my flights on Delta the staff members are always pleasant and helpful, not to mention a smooth flight. :)"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"
Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Delta employee who drive shuttle to connection stopped to drop off a passenger and proceed to chat w other workers thereby getting me to my gate late and missing my connection and getting me to Florida almost 3 hours later than planned. Agents at desk in JFK were rude. There was another Delta employee also on the shuttle who was the only one who seemed to show concern. He alerted the driver, called the boarding gate and led me to it."
Cons: "Out of all the airlines I have flown, this was quite disorganized in my opinion. The fact that I was not able to select a seat, nor did I have one assigned to me until prior to an hour before boarding, gave me a bit of anxiety. I don't think it's fair to take away this option to those that get the "cheap, standard" tickets."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and other than the food incident, good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "No choice during for lunch since the flight crew didn't have enough meals to cover the preferences of the first class travelers."
Pros: "When I was finally able to get on a later flight this was a very good one"
Cons: "The cancellation of original flight was stressful as I had a wedding to attend and the long delay and subsequent cancellation of original flight prevented me from it. Further, I was forced to get local transport after arrival in FLL, since I missed my ride altogether."
Pros: "I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices."
Cons: "Nothing, truly an excellent experience."
Cons: "Completely threw our afternoon plans and next day on their head because of the flight delays. Not cool."
Cons: "Flying from Sydney Australia and this being the final segment, Delta lost my luggage with no explanation as to why. It made it around the world only to get lost on the shortest segment. A real pain after 21 hours of flying to be delayed late at night by airline. No offer for compensation."
Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."
Pros: "The new plane was great. TV's on each seat back w/ great entertainment options"
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
"I like the fact y’all get me to my destination on time."
"Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!"
"Late, dirty and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Cons: "It’d be cool to see more inflight services some day? As in maybe WiFi at a cost or TVs, seat recliner"
Pros: "I paid extra for the added leg room!"
Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."
Cons: "They charge $50 for a carry on bag!!!"
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."
Pros: "Slight weather delay, no problem. We were assigned to seats with additional leg room that we didn't pay for, that was a nice & unexpected upgrade."
Cons: "I was a bit annoyed that my TSA Precheck was not included on my return ticket although I purchased the RT tickets through my Allegiant account that has all of that on my profile information. Feel like this should automatically have been added when tickets were purchased."
Cons: "Unfriendly Flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful; plane was clean; flight was on time; no problems"
Pros: "I finally got home"
Cons: "We took off 3 hours late. No transparency about what the delay was or how long, they just kept stringing us along 30 minutes to an hour at a time."
Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"
Pros: "Our trip to Knoxville was great- no complaints. A/c cool— flight on time."
Cons: "Trip back to FLL air was not working well. Plane dirty as well."
Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped but I suppose most are these days"
Pros: "Friendly pilot."
Cons: "My reading light kept flashing off and on. So I couldn't read my book."
Pros: "One hop flight"
Cons: "cramped seating, no wi-fi or on flight entertainment, low class of traveler, noisy older model aircraft,"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, very polite unlike the United flights I have taken. I was told the space would be uncomfortable but it was absolutely fine for the short flight."
Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."
Pros: "Great crew fast service and flight smooth !"
Cons: "I’m tall and have some back issues I found the seats very close and not too comfortable ! I tried to get A seat by the emergency exit but wasn’t early enough on my pick !"
Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours."
Pros: "Getting off the bus!"
Cons: "2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!"
Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("
Pros: "Standard no frills airline"
Cons: "No room for overhead bags near my seat. I paid $25 to sit up front and $35 for a carry on. I paid extra with the goal of deplaining first. Crew refused to allow me to stow the bags in the front bin, had to place it 10 rows back. If I didn’t run to my gags as soon as Wen landed would have been the last to deplane. If allegiant is going to charge so much for carry on, they need to find a way so front passengers are not squeezed out like this."
Pros: "Actual flight good and crew very accommodating"
Cons: "Seats poor. Waited 40 mins before the luggage entered the belt for pickup. Held us up for transportation to rent lot."
Pros: "terminal small and easy to navigate"
Cons: "flight was late because of a "valve issue" in terminal, then on the plane pilot tells us its a computer issue and just needed to "reboot" plane computer because it's a computer with wings. Not sure if either of those reasons were true."
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: "Great assistance with a wheelchair to board, and gate crew in CVG is super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After landing, we spent a hour sitting in the plane, waiting for a gate. After the entire plane had deboarded, it took another 15 minutes for them to bring my husband's wheelchair up from the gate checked storage."
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Pros: "- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines."
Cons: "- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual."
Pros: "I arrived safely Tommy Destination"
Cons: "It was so hot boarding and unloading. There was no air. Staff was curt and not very friendly as of assistance."
Pros: "Allegiant is a great flying experience! A little bit of a wait at BLV,but that will be fixed once they get the other TSA checking completed. VLP was a smooth and easy experience!"
Cons: "We weren't given a menu in the Kayak App to choose seats or bags at purchase. Kayak needs to rectify this. It caused us to spend more money on our bags especially..."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight experience was good, with the exception of my overpriced hummus and crackers."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and archaic. Once we were all finally seated they came through 3 times with a paper trying to figure out who wasn't on board. As we taxied towards the runway a lady who felt dizzy coming on board threw up. The crew was obviously panicked and unorganized. We taxied back to our gate and waited for LA Fire for. to escort the ill lady off and clean the area. While waiting to taxi out the second time the flight attended, Tyeesha, was very rude to an elderly gent. He was seated in an exit row and she didn't think him capable. The lady on the aisle of my row volunteered to switch and Tyeesha' s response was a sharp, "Do you want to pay the higher price too?" When the lady next to me said she would gladly pay Tyeesha announced loudly that this discussion was between the two of them and everyone else needed to mind their own business. The lady offering to switch was really embarrassed, as was the elderly gent. Someone else was made to switch with him. They looked disgruntled too. In the air all the flight attendants were sharp and very direct. There were no please or thank you's used. Trash was collected silently and mostly with pointing. The armrest to my left had five flavors of chewed gum stuck to the side of it. My lap tray had grey and yellow sticky stuff on it and I chose to hold my food rather than let the two touch. The floors were untidy. The only reason I will ever fly Allegiant again is if I have no other options. It is 60 minutes closer to my house than SLC and I will be making the drive from now on."
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."
Cons: "My flight to Vegas was cancelled the day of the trip, so the trip back did not exist for me. How does an airline do business this way? I had hotel booked and lost out on money."
Cons: "Arrival in Ft Lauderdale... Bags took an hour to get to carrousel. Never were posted on the information. Flight were, as expected, uncomfortable."
Cons: "I paid more to be upfront so I could get off plane faster but there was no room in overhead because people had put their carry on and personal items. I also didn't like that drinks weren't complimentary, especially beings that it was a 3 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant Lisa was great."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Pros: "The flight was fast, and direct."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and did their best under difficult circumstances."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed by 2 hours. When we arrived in Rapid City, we were stuck in the taxiway for more than half an hour before we could get to our gate."
Pros: "Price ok"
Cons: "Poor rude service. Waited 45 min once boarded to leave Hard to find flight info once booked Won't use again"
