Cons: "The Gogo Internet access was much worse than non-existent, causing me to pay and waste literally hours trying to get a single flight search done on [This idiotic form is broken—the search engine that starts with “Kaya”], and now I have to waste more time and effort to demand a refund from Gogo."

Cons: "Noisy air con Seat not reclining Headphone jack not working No storage space"

Pros: "crew's upbeat attitude"
Cons: "very limited drink choices"

Pros: "We especially liked the in flight movies which you could rent on a tablet like device similar in size to an iPad. Also, we appreciate airlines that still board the plane by row starting in the rear. That is the most sensible way to board a plane. Also, I had plenty of legroom while seated."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable seats"

Pros: "Most of it was fine."
Cons: "Seat size and proximity is uncomfortable. A flight attendant was somewhat rude, which the couple next to me even commented on."

Pros: "Excellent experience all around on all flights."

Pros: "It got me to my destination"

Pros: "Left 5 min early and got in 40 min early!"

Pros: "Love the amount of space availabile for my legs!!"

Pros: "First time flying Alaskan. Out of all the US-based airlines I flew with, Alaskan was the cleanest, friendliest, and quickest."

Pros: "Friendliness"

Pros: "The flight attendants made quite a few passes through to make sure everyone had drinks."
Cons: "We were very delayed in taking off because the copilot wasn't there. Many people had connecting flights and the crew did nothing to help them get off the plane first or give any kind of reasrrances that they could make the flight."

Cons: "Customers should be made aware that animals are on the flight before boarding to safe guard against allergies."

Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"

Cons: "Can I have a refund? My flight has been delayed 3 1/2 hours and then they add another delayed flight to leave from my gate ahead of us. Wonderful."

Pros: "Efficient and comfortable"

Pros: "The plane was new but with no bells let alone whistles."
Cons: "No monitors/screens at all on plane."

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("

Pros: "Very accommodating staff"

Cons: "The crew didn't offer me a beverage. There was no blankets."

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Space between the rows is narrow, I understand it has nothing to do with the flight itself."

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Sparse food."

Pros: "I love the leg room on Alasks flights, and I'm always impressed by the professionalism and respect Alaska employees show to their customers."

Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."

Pros: "My flight out of Chicago was delayed for about 3 hours and was no way I was going to catch my connecting flight in Seattle. I called Alaska airlines customer service and they were able to get me rescheduled on two new flights from Chicago to Fairbanks the very next day!! Excellent!!"

Pros: "I liked the seats and comfort, nice crew an allt that."
Cons: "That we were late. I wasn't their fault cause it was because of the weather, but it made me stressed and I couldn't relax."

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Gate agents were a little snippy."

Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."

Pros: "Quick boarding process! Everything was on time as estimated."

Cons: "Provide earphones or headphones"

Pros: "Professional crew attentive."
Cons: "More local information weather etc."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"

Cons: "We always board with Sky Priority but the agent took us off the line until Comfort Plus boarded. It was embarrassing to my husband and myself."

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"

Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"

Pros: "We actually did not fly this route. We bought a car and drove home!"

Pros: "The crew was spectacular. My son and daughter-in-law (married the day before) were are the flight as well, and the flight crew went out of their way to welcome them."

Pros: "Everythg was perfect"
Cons: "Have some headset so people can watch movies in the plane"

Pros: "First I don’t comment on these normally, but during our flight we had a medical emergency and the crew handled it with perfection. They kept a very calm atmosphere and handled passenger with great care and professionalism. I could not be more impressed."

Cons: "Worst transatlantic flight in 40 years. Filthy old seats and mine had a wet ironed stain. The seat in front of me was broken and reclined into my lap. That made the screen for entertainment unusable. The reading lights didn’t work. The toilets were a mess and never serviced."

Cons: "Sat in comfort+, bbut never offered any sort of snack. Not sure why it is considered an upgrade."

Pros: "Delta cramps people into these planes and forces you to put your bags under a seat because they stuff at the overhead spaces. They nickel and dime you for every single thing. There was even one person I saw who had to pay for his headphones to listen to the onboard entertainment. I think Delta should quit being so cheap with the profits they make and give it back to your flying customers. It borders on gouging."

Cons: "plane was a bit old. tiny tv screen"

Cons: "The Wi-Fi cut out a bit"

Pros: "The service on our flight was absolutely amazing, the food was surprisingly great, and the long ride was as comfortable as it could have been in an economy booking."
Cons: "My entertainment pad malfunctioned the whole time, even after it was reset. Thankfully I had enough things to keep me busy on my own, but it still would have been nice to have."

Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great service from ground and flight crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable on today’s packed planes"

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The plane was really nice. It was awesome being able to view movies on the flight."

Pros: "Simple, easy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was fine. No real complaints other than a talkative neighbor when I wanted to sleep."
Cons: "Talkative neighbor when I wanted to sleep. Very narrow and cramped cabin."

Pros: "Swift travel!"

Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confused. Crew was excellent as usual, but seemed to stop service in the last hour. Food was good, but they ran out of my preferred option. No screen entertainment, but access to entertainment was available via the WiFi."

Cons: "Flight boarding was an abomination as it was delayed 6 times. Then we had to board (by bus) to a location about 1-2 miles from the gate. Gate agents DID NOT keep the passengers updated. A simple announcement every 10-15 minutes would have made a big difference. Also video screens on several rows did not work, no entertainment for a 7 hr flight."

Pros: "Normal flight with every seat filled. I liked the icw.cream bar they served."
Cons: "Small seats. Dirty air."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "And arrived early, too.☺"

Cons: "The service was horribly they dilate my flight 24 hours and I lose my flight yesterday because from Washington to Atlanta the flight was late and from Atlanta to Tegucigalpa leave early"

Pros: "Crowded boarding area, but no standing around for long. Quick boarding. Entertainment not available so can't rate that. Good crew"

Pros: "Good flight no problems with boarding and take off"
Cons: "No blankets, it was cold and it was a 4.5 hr trip"

Pros: "I liked the selection of movies."
Cons: "The arrival estimate was off."

Cons: "Late flt"

Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"

Pros: "Free movies/TV is a great amenity. Overhead bins were full by the time I boarded, so I gate-checked my bag. The staff was helpful and accommodating, which made that process quick and easy."
Cons: "Boarding is chaos. There's got to be a more efficient way than zones."

Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."

Pros: "Boarding and deplaning were efficient. Crew was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Seat was near the restroom and there was an odor for the second half of the flight. Issues with the A/V - hum in the headphones and the touch screen only worked intermittently. Cabin temperature was a bit cold."

Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."

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."

Cons: "We had to leave the airport to get another boarding pass. Wish we could have gotten it at the start of our trip, because the people at the counters in Mexico city sent us to like 3 different counters. 2 aeromar counters and one delta. Things were not clear about this flight by aeromar operated by delta..."

Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."

Pros: "Friendly, friendly, friendly."

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly attendants. We had exit Sears so great legroom."
Cons: "Sears not assigned until boarding."

Cons: "Individual seat space is small, nor do seats recline much."

Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Being that it doesn't arrive in ABQ until almost midnight, a 52 minute delay means I don't get home until almost 2 in the morning. Seats also seem to be kind of narrow on the 737-800. I'm not a big guy, but I am still bumping shoulders through out the flight."

Cons: "I was not notified that I needed a visa as of October 1st, therefore missed my flights. You suck"

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"

Cons: "communication prevented me boarding my British flight, rerouting done by american, had paid reseved seat don't know if I will receive a refund. now have to spend my first few days back home going through the delayed flight to europe protocols."

Pros: "Good flight. 3 hour duration at night. I flew in first class, as the extension of my business class flight from Paris."
Cons: "Had to use a wheelchair service in terminals. Me and another victim were wheeled to 40 feet from the check in desk and the guy took off without further instruction. I hobbled to the counter to make sure we were on the pre-board list. Defeats the purpose, but whatever....."

Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Getting a flight"

Pros: "All the crew were pleasant"
Cons: "There was a delay but we weren’t well informed"

Cons: "Flight could have been on time"

Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."

Cons: "The delay of 1 hour inside the aircraft and at the end before they closed the doors 3 new passengers came in and it appeared that the aircraft was waiting for these passengers"

Pros: "The staff were polite and the pilot kept us on time. The flight wasn’t over booked and I was able to have an extra seat between myself and the other passenger in my row."
Cons: "That due to the Kayak purchase I had to wait until the last group to board."

Cons: "No TVs. We were set to be 20 minutes early because of the wind, yet they still made sure we got to the gate later than the original flight time."

Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."

Pros: "45min delay due to weather and could only be given a gate away from the others, which ultimately required a shuttle. Long day."

Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."

Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."

Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I have flown this airline many times and never once have we ever taken off on time. We left 2 and a half hours late and the people that work for them are grumps all the time. Never flying them again."

Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"

Cons: "Could not get to Santa Fe! Had to fly to Albuquerque & arrange transport to Santa Fe! No luggage til next day!"

Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"

Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"

Pros: "I liked the expediency of being rescheduled for another flight and the kindness of the American Airlines staff. When I first received my boarding pass, the pass listed gate A24 as the one where my flight was scheduled to depart. The plane destined to depart from Dallas to LAX did not show up. However, a few of us were kindly offered a cot and blankets to sleep on. The next morning I folded the cot and the blankets and found an American Airline staff member who swiftly rescheduled me for another flight to LAX. She did state that the original flight had departed at 11:15 p.m."
Cons: "From around 6 P.M., December 11, 2017, I was at gate A24 - the gate listed as the Departure gate for my return flight to Los Angeles. The last flight that left went to Saint Louis, I believe. There was never a flight to depart from Gate 24 to Los Angeles. I believe the gate may have been changed and for some reason, those who were at Gate 24 were not informed. Also, the travel instructions on the advertisement for scheduling the flight mentioned the ability to carry on luggage for no additional charge. When I received my boarding pass, it stated I was only allowed to carry on baggage that would fit underneath the seat and not in the overhead bin. I had to pay to check my baggage that I thought was free. In spite of the changes, the flight was a good flight. Thank you"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No problems."

Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."

Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"

Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."

Pros: "I had a weapon to check and found that one of the case locks had been broken. With only minutes to spare a Huntsville TSA bag checker donated a personal padlock so I could make my flight. 5 stars."
Cons: "Monotonal flight orientation. Follow a Southwest Airlines model and add some vigor!"

Pros: "I was in Business class and had some room to spread out."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost three hours. Crew provided NO service, but it was a late flight."

Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"

Cons: "Flight path at the end had to many turns kinda made me sick"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero entertainment. Flight sat on tarmac as they tried to fix some technical issues after taxiing"

Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"

Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."

Pros: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "The American Airlines plane was very clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and attentive at all times. I enjoyed the food served and the selection of movies offered inflight was excellent. I would definitely travel with American again."
Cons: "I wish the vegetarian meal was a little better thought out! It tasted a bit like hospital food."

Pros: "It he seats were very comfortable There was enough leg space Crew was excellent The timing was good"

Pros: "2 flight attendents reset the unit but to no avail."
Cons: "We could not resolve it."

Cons: "Lots of turbulence."

Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable, too narrow, and little leg room."

Pros: "Friendly crew."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "crew was kind and helpfull"
Cons: "They lost my luggage for 6 days. Also a 18 hour layover just the little things that makes the difference in travel"

Cons: "The plane had mechanical problems and was rescheduled to a different flight"

Cons: "I did not like how I requested a same day flight, was presented with a low fare, so I took it, and it was deceptively a different day months in the future. . . This is not a flight I feel I should have paid for, as I feel I was deceived"

Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Took forever To take off. Also a mix up happens with our seats & crew was unconcerned or helpful."

Cons: "Absolutely GREAT!!!"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"

Cons: "A plan to deal with a hostile mom with a screaming kid that was out of control."

Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."

Pros: "Flight speed"
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that we are all watching and listening to them hoot and holler with themselves. During the flight the head attendant was watching a movie on her personal device. At this point anybody could do her job"

Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Comfortable and inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "It was all good!"

Pros: "Cost of reservation"
Cons: "Expensive extras (added up to more than a flight on another airline would have been)- carry-ons, in-flight snacks and drinks, etc."

Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Free beverages"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. Seats were as comfortable as they can be"
Cons: "I really didn't have any problems , very pleased with the airline"

Pros: "The crew was great. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I wish water was free. That is the only thing I don't like. I understand it's a cheap airline so everything cost extra, which is fine. But come on, water should be free."

Cons: "on time flight. Accurate info on app. Correct seat assignments"

Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"

Cons: "1- Flight Behind Schedule 2- Live customer service agents are truly non-existent until 1.5hrs before ‘departure’"

Pros: "Smooth timely flight without incident."
Cons: "As retired military we were to have assigned seats since we purchased our tickets but somehow our return tickets separated us by 2 rows & opposite sides of plane. We were supposed to be in an isle seat & a window seat in the same side & row. We do appreciate all Allegiant Air does for the military. Wish all airlines did what they do."

Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Hsve to pay for drinks & snacks"

Pros: "The flight attendants, the space on the plane, the prompt departure and arrival!"
Cons: "Media has not been reflective of my great experience."

Cons: "The flight was delayed all day!!!"

Pros: "Flight left early and was at destination 30 minutes earlier!"
Cons: "On the return trip, I had to wait 30 minutes for my luggage."

Pros: "Pretty empty flight so we were able to change seats. Good thing because my family wasn’t sitting together-$12 to pick or change seats ahead of time. Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it. Trenton and punta gorda airports are small, you have to walk to the plane. I love the small airports, no lines , easy parking!"
Cons: "Seats aren’t that comfortable and don’t recline even a bit, tray table is small."

Pros: "My kids and I had great experiences with Allegiant Air, thanks in large part to some excellent flight attendants. This was the first flight for both of my children (5, 7) and they had a blast. On our initial flight from Indianapolis to Ft. Lauderdale the attendants even gave each of them their own set of pin-on wings since it was their first time. The kids loved this!"

Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"

Cons: "Extra charges for everything, even water"

Pros: "Quick boarding with no fuss."
Cons: "The planes could be a lot cleaner."

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "Flight was on time, the cabin attendants were courteous, and the flight captain kept us informed."

Pros: "No hassle. No delays."

Cons: "Bought flight insurance. Had to cancel within one week due to mom's health issues. Could not get a refund without her Dr.'s signature, which was impossible for me to do. Therefore....lost 145.....down the drain....."

Pros: "Efficient check in, no hidden fees (all were explained via email well before the flight), fast boarding, take off and unloading. Time left and arrived on time. The staff was extremely friendly."
Cons: "The seats were bare bones and not very comfortable but I guess that's what helps keep costs down."

Pros: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."

Pros: "Quick boarding with priority access Friendly staff"
Cons: "Unclear boarding instructions. Both flights roundtrip were delayed about an hour. Wasn't advised of seat changes and reasons why. Mobile passes were unavailable due to a system issue gate attendants had to check manually. Bring own snacks or eat before flight and provide your own entertainment. Seats not reclining are uncomfortable. Not suitable for someone with back issues. First flight was uncomfortably cold return flight was uncomfortably hot."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"

Pros: "didn't like anything"
Cons: "delays"

Pros: "I am handicapped and was given the best possible service"

Pros: "Very smooth ride and attentive friendly staff"
Cons: "Snacks were over charged."

Pros: "The stewardess was great on trip up there and back!"
Cons: "Little bit bumpy ride in some spots"

Cons: "Arrival in Ft Lauderdale... Bags took an hour to get to carrousel. Never were posted on the information. Flight were, as expected, uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was amazing & child friendly."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"

Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."

Pros: "On time. Courteous stsgg. Great price."
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Very good flight crew. Cheerful. Nicely suggested a free adult beverage since we had the Allegiant credit card."
Cons: "Was an hour and half late"

Pros: "Bring your own snacks & entertainment you will enjoy your flight. Make sure you eat before your flight. Download the Allegiant Air app to your cell phone you will have a Mobile Boarding pass no need to print use your phone."

Pros: "The price, found a round trip from Albuquerque to Austin 3 weeks ahead for 74$. I couldn't believe it"

Pros: "Very affordable."
Cons: "Seats are too close"

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"

Cons: "Not clean"

Cons: "Uncomfortable"

Pros: "Ease of finding gate"
Cons: "There were several cases of couple who purchased tickets together were separated on the plane & no one knew why they were arranged that way. No solution offered at counter."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."

Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."

Cons: "2 hour delay."

Pros: "Things were new"
Cons: "Seats were smaller, legroom was less, seatbacks when fully upright push your heard forward so when I fell asleep, my head kept falling, NO FREE ENTERTAINMENT. They tell you to download the app mid-flight to get free entertainment, but you need to pay for wifi to access the app store."

Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."

Pros: "Staff did a great job communicating about turbulent situations & delaying services"

Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"

Cons: "Had a one hour delay on thtarmac waiting for de-icing...weather related."

Pros: "Good progress info in-flight from cockpit"
Cons: "TSA lines at SFO Terminal 3 are a zoo, precheck included. United gates had no facilities available to plug in a charger. C'mon folks, it's 2017, one wall outlet with two kids sprawled on the carpet next to it isn't enough. The 'grab a snack' box had one crumpled cellophane package of peanut butter crackers. Yum."

Cons: "I appreciate the in-flight entertainment idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired."

Cons: "flight was delayed - mechanical; disabled husband (had knee replacement 15 weeks ago) had to walk the entire way from concourse F to A. the caused excruciating pain."

Cons: "Personal entertainment did not work. Most first and business class airlines have a screen to see the movies."

Pros: "Flight was late"

Cons: "Thirty minute delay with pushback in San Francisco"

Pros: "service.snack"
Cons: "some folks didn't use ear phones watching shows so i had to hear annoying entail mentioned selections. I had ear plugs fortunately :) didn't find anything I'd watch in entertainment. enjoy learning/science/documentaries"

Pros: "The attendants tried to be cheerful in a difficult situation."
Cons: "Once we were boarded we waited for a long time in a crowded stifling hot plane. Requests to the crew were met with helplessness on their part!"

Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"

Pros: "Really fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was really bumpy which I realize isn't anyone's fault but I couldn't wait till we landed...also they announced that as soon as we were at a certain altitude they would begin beverage service....which I was really looking forward too , and then ten minutes later they announced that they were cancelling beverage service."

Pros: "We arrived on time and I had no problems ."
Cons: "Everything was ok."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned."
Cons: "nothing to complain about on this flight."

Pros: "It was on time and I had no problems whatsoever."

Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Left on time,arrived on time, crew was polite"

Cons: "Not a crew or airline issue, but strong winds made for three attempted landings."

Cons: "Lost our bags which we still haven't received. Seats didn't recline. Airplane wasn't stocked with enough food for the passengers. This was on top of both flights being very delayed first due to weather and then maintenance."

Pros: "The crew was polite and courteous. Aircraft was clean. The flight even landed way ahead of schedule. Overall a great return flight"
Cons: "The food seemed overpriced for what it was. I passed as it didn't look very appealing."

Pros: "Delay, delay, delay"

Pros: "Only good thing was the flight was fast and on flight staff friendly."
Cons: "Flight to Denver was supposed to leave from Albuquerque at 9:55. Screen said flight was on time. No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"

Cons: "Waiting in the airport for 8hours! I have fibromyalgia and it was very uncomfortable. Never got a straight answer about why it kept being delayed. Missed my flight to San Diego!"

Cons: "I didn't like the 1 hr delay and sitting on the plane for an hr before take off"

Pros: "Again, great staff at the gate and crew aboard. Short flight but very comfortable."
Cons: "It was freezing!"

Pros: "The crew was very courteous and kept us up to date."
Cons: "I did not like that both planes they put us on were broken. We were very delayed"

Pros: "On time both ways"

Pros: "Staff was nice and attentive"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight and the departure and arrival times were just perfect. I really liked the cookies they had. If I had wanted to use it, there was WiFi available."
Cons: "We took off late due to mechanical problems and I think the practice of allowing first class passengers to board first and then get in the way of other people trying to board later is inefficient."

Pros: "The flight was safe, the crew courteous. Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Cons: "Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."

Pros: "Very little to like"
Cons: "First : I bought Lufthansa tickets but was flown w United. Rude staff terrible food and unbearable seating no tv monitors per seat. I travel to Europe 4 time a year... This was without question the worse"

Pros: "Okay crew."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seating. Departure time and gate changes."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When traveling with a service animal, it's kind of a given that I would be seated where there would be room for my dog. My dog is 70 pounds. There was no room for him to sit in front of me. The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle". A 2nd attendant was able to move me to a front row where there was space for him to sit on the floor in front of me."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, the food was good and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable, and the WiFi was expensive. Plus, when I got to my destination, my suitcase has been damaged and a few items were missing."

Pros: "No problem flight"
Cons: "Announcements from cockpit inaudible"

Pros: "Left and got into destination early"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "My first trip as a handicapped traveler. All airline staff made me feel comfortable and welcome."
Cons: "In the Denver airport one of the wheelchair pushers let me stranded. The airline staff came to my rescue and got me to the restrooms and down the ramp to the airplane to Albuquerque."

Pros: "Was on a larger regional small jet. The service was great. Lots of legroom."

Cons: "United double charged me for the same flight! When I called customer service I was left on hold for a long time and received no explanation or refund. Such a terrible airline experience."
