Pros: "Check in and crew were friendly and helpful. Was in first class so of course was comfortable. Deplaning was quick and efficient."
Cons: "This flight required taking a shuttle from the gate to an offsite location. The distance to the offside was rather far and we were packed in a shuttle. We had to wait for two more shuttles for passengers that were in delayed connections. Additionally, someone apparently filled the plane with too much fuel, throwing off the balance of the plane and we had to wait for some of the fuel to be removed. During this wait, in first class we were only offered orange juice or coffee. I realize it was a very short flight, but a snack might have been a good idea."

Cons: "Late boarding, narrow seats"
Pros: "Crew was attentive to a couple of issues with families (not my issues, but could have affected customers traveling alone adversely)."

Cons: "We got in later than estimated."
Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "would have loved a soda not juice and it seems like the turbulance is always bad"
Cons: "I realize flight delays happen, but many of us commute by plane!! Show a little hustle! It might make us feel like you care that we’re an hour late for work!!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants kind and understanding."
Cons: "Mechanical issues making nearly an hour delay."
Pros: "Crew great. Flight on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly and clean crew and plane"

Cons: "Scrunched seats"
Pros: "The attendants were really nice... flight was fast and smooth."

Pros: "Organized and on time!"
Pros: "Friendly, punctual"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Everything, quiet"
Cons: "Baggage charge"
Cons: "Our luggage was lost upon our return trip. While helpful, they didn't automatically offer a customer service gesture discount without request. This was mentioned upon disembarking from the jet. However, the claim attendant did not mention it at customer service to my wife. I had to go and mention what was stated by the flight attendant. While waiting again in line, I observed that the customer service person did not mention it to the two families in front of me."
Cons: "3 times in the last 10 years i have had flights with this airline from portland twice an seattle once everytime they have some excuse about air crews an the flights leave 2 hours late after a long layover this has been a problem for a long time if i knew the right people like in the faa to call i would . honestly i seriously recommend to do not fly this air line to spokane unless you are desperate .once ok twice wait a second three times two different citys there is something here an it need fixed yesterday"
Pros: "Awesome flight."
Pros: "Got me home."
Cons: "Weather and pilot delays kept us in Seattle about an hour and a half longer than we were supposed to be. 1120pm flight actually left at 1am. Tried to find an earlier flight once we knew it was delayed the first time. No other options and then it delayed again. Part of travel I suppose and the crew was nice, just was ready to be home."
Pros: "On time. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Friendly staff with sense of humor. Beverage service even on a very short flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Flight was oversold from the get go so there was a constant request for volunteers to take a later flight and voucher. At boarding time it was announced there was a mechanical delay for 30 min. Then another 30 min. Then another 30 min. Eventually it was announced that another plane with 20 fewer seats would be used and volunteers were requested again. After being awake over 24 hours a very miserable end to a trip."
Cons: "Traveling alone with my 7 mo infant. Boarded the plane and got all settled for our quick flight, just to be told that we all had to deplane due to mechanical issues. So, had to pack up all our baby stuff, grab our gate checked car seat and stroller, go to another gate, and board again. After taxiing for about 40 min, we finally took off (when we should have been landing). Definitely prepped bottles and diaper bag for a one hour flight and had an antsy baby by the time we landed. Totally understand that mechanical issues come up and am glad we were safe, but would have been much appreciated if we didn't have to board, deplane, and then board again."
Pros: "Poor experience"
Cons: "Flight cancelled at the last minute."
Pros: "The gate agents, flight attendants and flight crew were polite, professional and efficient."
Pros: "Useing both doors for loading and unloading"
Cons: "Getting roasted by the sun because there were no window shades. I was covered in sweat and there wasn't a dry spot left on my shirt. Why aren't there any window shades?"
Pros: "Crew was excellent despite the delays."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes in the aircraft after boarding, after the flight was already delayed 30 minutes. Warm day and none of the in aircraft ventilation was turned on. What should've been a roughly 45 minute flight from Seattle to Spokane became a 3hr slog."
Pros: "They were very accommodating and friendly. It's so easy to use."
Cons: "I like the food and how they changed my seat when I told them I have back trouble. But next time I will get first class or business class if I can."
Pros: "um...I got home?"
Cons: "Ugh where to start. First my flight from Oakland was delayed an hour, and while they did rebook me a flight (with a 3-hour layover in Seattle), they couldn't keep me in a first-class seat and didn't offer anything to compensate for that. This was my first time (and probably last time) treating myself to a first-class flight, and I was kind of looking forward to that seat...although I understand if flights are full.. When I arrived (an hour late) in Seattle, the gate was shown as N2, about ten thousand miles away from my debarking gate in the C section. After walking halfway there, I stopped at an Alaska desk to AGAIN verify info and ask if someone could PLEASE CHECK and see if I could keep my first-class seating, since I PAID for one originally and the delay was airline-based. They blandly told me the flights were full and everyone had checked in already, and then mentioned that the gate had been changed BACK to C section, so hike back another 5000 miles to where I started. Wait three hours. I did check in at the gate as well, yet again, to beg with my best smiley-face and see if the girls could find me a first class spot or put me on standby, since I PAID for it. They said, sadly, no it's all full and checked in. Wait and wait. When I finally did board, I noticed that the info board said that "two upgrade requests" had been filled. What? Seriously? Is that MY FIRST CLASS SEAT YOU JUST GAVE SOMEONE? *frowns slightly* Walked through the already-seated first-class cabin, noticing that TWO OF THEM are empty. I was seated in the middle between a regular dude and this woman who is apparently running her company and having a conference call loudly on her phone, right in my ear. So yes, we understand: She's important. After sitting for a few minutes, I finally buzzed an attendant, who finally arrived, and asked her AGAIN, if she could please check if there any first class seats open, because that is what I PAID FOR and I'd appreciate finishing my trip as it was origanally booked. She said she'd check. AND THEN DISAPPEARED FOREVER. Never did see her again. A few minutes later, yet another attendant walked down the aisle with a clipboard, checking for open seats and I'm thinking she's coming to tell me that yes, there's been an opening and one of those 2 empty seats is mine and please go ahead and move. But no. She walks on by and says something about adding more standby people to some empty seats. I'm literally biting my tongue. Then, before I can say anything, these TWO GUYS come flailing down the gangway and bail into the two lovely EMPTY first-class seats in front of me. *scowl* I'm sorry, but unless they were late getting to the plane, and those were actually their seats (could be true), this whole thing was handled very strangely. I never fly first class anyway, and I understand delays and full flights, but it would have been nice to have anyone even attempt to help me finish my trip in the class that I had PAID FOR."
Pros: "The check-in was easy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from GEG -> PDX Before departure, the pilot announced that the flight would be "very bumpy" and so they weren't going to have drink service at all and the flight attendants would stay seated for the duration of the flight. This made me very nervous for the whole flight. However, it was hardly bumpy at all. I arrived tired from getting all worked up over nothing. On the way back to Spokane, the pilot announced before departure that the takeoff and landing would be bumpy, but once we got up to altitude it would be smooth. The reality was totally the opposite. During takeoff it was quite smooth, but then there was so much turbulence at cruising altitude that the pilot came on to say they were cancelling the beverage service halfway through for safety reasons. And then it smoothed out before landing. I thought it was a bad experience on both counts. Why even bother making a prediction about flight conditions if they are so changeable? It only sets people's expectations and then they are disappointed or unsettled."

Cons: "The crew was rude, it was so unpleasant"

Cons: "Flight attendant bumped me several times, did not apologize or say excuse me."
Pros: "Such a short flight, 37 minutes. Just oj or water. All else great."
Cons: "The customer service representative at the counter was cold, without a smile, and not having much eye contact while providing service and answers. That makes it an unpleasant experience while I needed to get a boarding pass."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight was ok. But the important thing is that Alaska was really accommodating in putting me on standby when I arrived at airport early and the standby process was very smooth and efficient."
Cons: "It was an hour and a half late but they Kept us informed"
Pros: "a few minutes early...great job, great crew considering the morning following a snow storm"
Cons: "nothing... i even sat next to a very nice old lady excited about making it in the flight"
Pros: "Everything was great. I was on a regional flight so I didn't try any food and their was no entertainment but everything ran very smoothly. Very pleased."

Cons: "See above."
Pros: "My favorite airline by far! On time, great crew, great flight"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The plane was very new everything was good"

Pros: "They left the bags at LAX. We we’re driving to Sun Valley and don’t have our ski clothes and equipment"
Cons: "Get our bags to us in the morning"
Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "Since my first flight was delay I lost deje second one."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Never made the connecting flight."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was the best I’ve seen in coach. Free games, movies, moving map, etc."
Cons: "The seating is too cramped. It has just gone past what is reasonable. Seems too tight on both the knees and elbow room."
Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Cons: "Bigger personal space"
Pros: "The Crew on this flight was great and the flight was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3+ hours and Delta kept pushing the delay out further without giving any updates as to why it was so delayed, and when I inquired at the Delta desk at the gate the woman was very rude to me as she snipped that it was a mechanical issue."
Pros: "The crew was absolutely amazing!! So kind and helpful! The captain also took a beautiful path around Rainier during a gorgeous sunrise!! The seats were very comfortable and the flight was smooth even though it was a smaller plane (Skywest). I will absolutely fly Skywest again!"
Cons: "It’s an older plane and needs a little work; but don’t we all?! ;)"
Pros: "Had a great experience with Delta all around. Seating and crew were lovely, in flight entertainment was great. Overall, very pleasant experience and flight was on time."
Cons: "20 minutes late"
Pros: "Food was decent and crew were nice enough"
Cons: "Seat space was small and cramped. Entertainment was poor unfortunately"
Pros: "Short and easy"
Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."
Pros: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pros: "On time leaving and landing"
Cons: "Every thing went well"
Cons: "There is no place to specifically order vegetarian options in booking. Luckily virgin carries extra"
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "I love flying with Delta because of the entertainment that they provide. It makes the time go by faster. My 5 hour trip was over before I knew it!"
Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"
Pros: "Customer service was great"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Flight was on a 787! Great plane"
Cons: "Food was mediocre for an international long haul fight, and was served by a completely indifferent staff! My prearranged seat choices were switched to a no recline rows and rebooking after a unnecessarily missed connection became 7 step comedy of errors ,aside from quality aircraft this felt like a budget operation."
Pros: "SLC ground gate crew was awesome."
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."
Pros: "The crew was very cheerful"
Cons: "No entertainment and uncomfortable seats (at least for trying to take a nap)"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very Comfy plane."
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Pros: "While the seating is narrow, the seats are well appointed and seem roomier than they are. Each seat has 110V and usb ports and a back of the seat movie and entertainment screen. Very good for a short flight to Atlanta"
Cons: "The 0.012 oz packet of tiny tiny pretzles"
Cons: "First class seats were uncomfortable for a 6.5 hour overnight flight."
Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."
Pros: "Even though we had to tax over to the de-Icing pad before we could take off from Philadelphia, we were still in the air by our original departure time. Our flight was accompanied by tail winds that got us to Detroit early giving me plenty of time to make my connecting flight."

No delays, the wifi on flight didn't work and friendlier staff would be a good start.

This is not customer service. Let’s not pretend. Flying American is transactional at best. I pay for transportation, the airline provides transportation (unbound by comfort and convenience)… the end. No one is there to impress or innovate, they simply just exist as part of the transportation process. Avoid if you have other options.

Everything was ok , .

Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"
Pros: "not much; very crowded; feel bad for the crew too;"
Cons: "put more flights and give people some room; or put less seats; over booking and over crowded flights are not fun. basically, i am expecting some improvement either from you or from other companies"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours each way for maintenance, did not allow us to switch seats to sit together previously at flight and the flight was very empty. Very uncomfortable seats. Will not fly AA again"
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Everything was awesome. No wait, fast boarding, nice crew!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. TSA in Tulsa can always speed up or open more lanes!"
Cons: "There was a delay on the departure"
Cons: "Too small of a plane for that long a flight. Cabin was too damn hot."
Pros: "Timelness"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "Different snack options."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Cons: "On both segments of the trip American changed my seat which I. I’d not realize until boarding. Way to late to protest. You pay for preferred seating but then get bumped to a lousy seat with no explanation. Likely because I was a single traveler and an American employee wanted my seat. Better not happen on the return flight"
Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."
Pros: "The helpful gate agents getting the assisted on board. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats have no leg room. the person in front of me laid their seat back and I could not get out to use the restroom. The screen where my husband sat did not work."
Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "Wasn't full, plenty of room. Free booze offered!"
Cons: "Delayed, crew didn't help couple to calm their children and restore morale"
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Typically claustrophobic conditions. No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "I miss friendly Southwest. Even the assigned seat is kit enough for me to use AA again. People smile at Southwest and seem to enjoy their job."
Pros: "The flight was as advertised. Nothing particularly special other than reliable which was just fine with us."
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and pleasant"
Cons: "No IFE, bug not a big deal I had my own."
Pros: "Its Alaska. Nothing more to say. My preferred airline and never had a bad flight."
Cons: "The usual. More legroom would be good. That's about it."
Cons: "You pay extra to get the TSA Full background check, so you can breeze through TSA, with PreCheck, yet this Airline has a problem with recognizing it. 3 phone calls layer and a Visit to their Costumer Serice Desk, and none of them can figure it out. Uhg again."
Pros: "In General, as a premium passenger, I usually enjoy the premium cabin experience; however, it was lacking this time."
Cons: "In first class, three/four of us requested headphones/headsets; the flight attendant informed us that there were no headphones/headsets; thus, we could not watch any programming In first class, there were two meal options, but one was almost immediately depleted before the flight attendant arrived at my row."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "There was nowhere to stow my purse and things i wanted to use during flight near me, my luggage got lost"
Cons: "Delayed flight, moderately friendly crew, moderately comfortable flight, expensive."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I know there is little to be done about who you get seated next to. I also know you do your best with full flights. However I was seated next to a frightening woman who touched me and laid on my the whole flight. No matter what I did, she moved closer to touch me and did not give me personal space for the entire flight. Since it was a full flight I couldn't ask to be moved."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "otherwise ok"
Cons: "2hr delay"
Pros: "Actually coming home was great. Thank you"
Cons: "Going to Cancun. From Boise sucked. Are flight from Boise sucked we we're 4 to 5 hours late due to the gas contamination in Boise and we weren't informed until a hour + after from the time our flight was suppose to go out. We weren't very happy. They new the night prior, so we could have came to the airport 3 hours later and been just fine. Which also made us miss the connecting flight"
Pros: "I liked that the plane was clean, that the staff consisted of somewhat normal, more mature people, and that water and carry-ons are free."
Cons: "I felt that having to pay $50 extra for a seat when I checked in was pretty deceptive and unethical. I think most people would agree that when they purchase a boarding pass, it is assumed that it includes a seat. Having to pay extra for a seat was something I did not plan for and it was out of my budget, but I had no choice, because I had to get home somehow! I'll be going without groceries this week due to this unplanned expense."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and hour and they lost out baggage. Did not have clothes for 2 days"
Pros: "The space"
Cons: "The agents and flight attendants were very unfriendly. You could tell that because I was of a different nationality that this was a problem."
Cons: "The counter manager at PHX, Lanell Monarrez was a total witch and whispering to Lanya in front of me was very unprofessional. I paid a full fare 1-way ticket to get out of PHX as they were not willing to allow me to fly standby or make a change to my existing ticket. Crappy airline service at the counter. Good flight crew."
Pros: "Nice aircraft, clean, comfortable, friendly staff"

This flight not too much to like. .5lbs and they were gonna charge us $50. No one on the flight had a personality. Literally they all just stood there with a frown on their face. My 3 year old who is always cheerful spoke to all the ladies and they all just said hi in a somber tone. Very disappointing. Got charged for two drinks when paying with my Allegiant Mastercard. Should have gotten one free. Just a disappointing flight experience.

All ok. Just departure by 45 min. Also one hr delay on original trip.

My only real issue was that when I booked this flight through Kayak, I somehow booked via BudgetAir.com (though I was on your website.) Due to this, I was unable to access boarding passes coming or going via the Kayak app, or the Allegient app. Luckily I was able to print them prior to leaving home (and the resort printed them for on the way back), but using this site is definitely something I'll have to consider for my trip. I should have been able to access boarding passes electronically via the app regardless.

Cons: "Squished and smelly but good value overall and good crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "The airports restaurants closed and security shut down as well. We were prisoners in the airport with only a vending machine. Unbelievable. Believe the Allegiant Air stories from 60 Minutes. The stories are true."
Pros: "Direct flight in less than 3 hours"
Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"
Cons: "Flight delayed when we ere told it was early. Waited and waited."
Pros: "Like the newer plane. The crew was nice."
Cons: "I purchased 2 bulk head seats for more leg room and because they changed the plane, my seats were no longer in the bulk head. We didn't have extra leg room and I would like a refund for the price I paid to upgrade my seats. It is impossible to get service on the phone, since even the customer service number the flight attentendant gave me, still put me on an unbearable hold time. Please refund my money for the seats that you did not provide me with."
Pros: "People in my row."
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "EVERYTHING is extra payment, even a small carry-on; water $2!!!; seating is extremely cramped"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
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: "Cost"
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "Great price. Direct route. Friendly gate staff and flight crew. On time (actually early) departure and arrival."
Cons: "Flip side of departing early is they closed boarding over 30 minutes before scheduled departure (nearly missed flight)."
Pros: "My wife said that this was the smoothest airplane ride she had ever had."
Cons: "The first lady at the check in desk told us the wrong gate. We wound up taking a tram to another terminal, found out that we were in the wrong place, and then made it back just in time to board with a few minutes to spare. Anyway, the airline itself was o.k. and next time I'll check the arrival/departure board. Since we were traveling with only a carry on, it was a good price after all the "frills" were added (pay for carry on, pay to select seat). we still had a price lower than any other airline. So all in all, once we got on the plane it was a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Cost of tickets, airport locations-and more convenient travel utilizing smaller airports."
Cons: "Baggage fees are outrageous, no complimentary amenities or refreshments. Flight attendants were rude in asking parties to return to assigned seats, while there were several completely open rows towards the back, (no obvious or explained reason aside from "assigned ticket seats" that they should remain empty. Families or companions could have traveled together- seemed unnecessary to prevent this, only gain noticed was Flight attendants satisfaction at denying seat relocation."
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."
Pros: "I never have any issues. Everything is always great."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Charge for carry on and in flight snacks and drinks (sodas,juices,water)"
Pros: "Well, it was a somewhat inexpensive flight out of a convenient terminal."
Cons: "I say somewhat cheap, because by the time they ala carte everything, it's not so cheap anymore. As in no longer cheap enough to justify the bare bones service. The flight attendants are basically candy salespeople. I typically need help putting things in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant actually told me it wasn't her job. That indeed may be the airline's bad policy, but she also thought her way of expressing it was appropriate, which it is not. That has to come straight from the top. Also, what kinda janky airline doesn't serve complementary water. Probably the biggest deal though was that my flight was delayed for 2 hours both ways due to a maintenance issue. I know air travel is fairly safe, but given the track record of both Allegiant and Airbus, I was a little worried during the flights. Even though this particular route is convenient for me, I'm going to avoid Allegiant."
Pros: "Direct flight, low price"
Cons: "Paying for a seat. Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Even snacks and water are only available for a fee. Seats do not have much padding and are not comfortable."
Cons: "That you charge for every little thing...surprised you don't charge to use the bathrooms. Don't appreciate having to be your clean up crew either."
Pros: "Reasonable price for non-stop flight. Staff very helpful and personable."
Cons: "Late, which seems to happen alot with this airline. Have to pay extra for many thngs: selecting seat, carry on bag, snacks, drinks."
Pros: "Fast boarding and getting out of plain."
Cons: "The stewardesses were not very professional, but it's ok since you pay so little. Also you can not adjust seat, it's the same position all flight"
Cons: "The weather blizzard and freeways being closed. I missed my flight"
Cons: "Every flight has been late or delayed by 1- 5 hours, unacceptable"
Cons: "My row of seats was completely skipped when they were handing out refreshments."
Cons: "Overpriced !!"

I’m glad this flight had a snack service as this flight generally only has non-alcoholic beverage service. The Canadair regional 200 jet is one of the worst aircraft experiences you can ride, but it’s better than flying the Dash 8.

Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"
Cons: "On time arrival."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating"
Cons: "They has us deplane twice. Flight was delayed 2 hours. Need to upgrade plane equipment"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Every flight was delayed or ran late on this trip. Going to and headed home."
Pros: "Customer service in Business Class."
Cons: "No communication with airlines as far as flight information. The airlines sent me gate change which was incorrect and almost missed my flight"
Pros: "Courteous attendants"
Cons: "My seat smelled like urine."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Pros: "We were 2 min late for check in and the agent got our bags and got them on the plane"
Pros: "Tailwinds made the trip arrive earlier than expected even with a slight delay boarding due to the jet not arriving exactly on time. The ERJ's are really nice with the updated seats and tray table in the armrest. It was only an hour and a half flight, so no real way to rate food or entertainment."
Pros: "Comfortable, pleasant Attendants and friendly Pilots"
Pros: "Gate agent was sincere and professional."
Cons: "Aircraft cabin temperature far to warm and uncomfortable."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The plane was coming from the hanger and we departed over 2 hours late because we had to wait for a tug to get the plane to the gate."
Pros: "FAST TURNAROUND OF LATE ARRIVING INBOUND FLIGHT"
Cons: "The air did not work on this plane and it was hot and uncomfortable! Usually once you take off the plane cools down. We sat on runway for 15 minutes due to weather(which the airline cannot control). However once we took off the air still did not work and the plane was uncomfortably warm with little air movement."
Pros: "Chicken wrap was very tasty. Very attentive flight crew."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Chilly in the cabin"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Pros: "Not a thing."
Cons: "Ended up missing our connector flight into Boise. They gave us a food voucher and a hotel room. Very pissed off! Made me miss a full day of work on Monday the 23rd."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Cons: "Couldn't cancel or change flight. Website makes it difficult."
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Cons: "I am Asian who was not allowed using restroom located in the front of airplane close to the 1st class cabin, but people sit next to me can. I feel insulted."
Cons: "The snack"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "Best, smoothest landing ever! The captain was great."
Cons: "The two squalling children two rows back. They were obviously upset and the parents were apparently newbies to traveling with infants and toddlers. The parents were almost as annoying as the children. That's just the way it goes while traveling. c'est la vie"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very unpleasant, when they were handing out the little snacks bags the guy threw mine into my seat instead of handing them over to me. Also the plane was filthy and there were dirty Q-tips in the seat back pocket in front of me that I had to look at the whole time"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Pros: "helpful people working for United"
Cons: "Information about seating for people with disabilities was not readily available. I purchased extra room seating then found out my co-passenger was entitled to it without extra charge. United refunded fees."
Pros: "Boarding was simple and easy."
Cons: "Seating is much too narrow and much too close together. My knees were against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Sitting in first class made the trip a breeze. The seats were extremely comfortable and the snacks were great!"
Cons: "I had an infant with me and mind you he's an amazing traveler but I still seemed to get dirty looks from the flight attendants. The wifi wasn't working and they had to reset everything."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."
Pros: "Nothing good to comment."
Cons: "It was 4.5 hr delay due to late inbound crew. Once boarded we still waited 30 min waiting on more crew to board. Particles fell on my head during flight. Landing was hard and scary. Horrible experience."
