The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."
Pros: "Great food, nice cabin"
Cons: "Legroom bad, seats hard"
Pros: "We eventually made it to our destination, with our luggage!"
Cons: "Better update on delays. Seats are horribly uncomfortable especially for international flights. Food was a joke, dinner was mediocre and breakfast was a cold snack, you can do better. Please consult with airlines that rank in the top ten about how to do things. You already make a huge profit, stop squeezing your customers for more. Maybe you won’t be ranked amongst the worst airlines in the world anymore. Second bad international experience with AA. Never again."
Pros: "Once we took off the flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 11:55 am take off to a 1:30 pm take off."

Pros: "All connections-smooth"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Broken down into more groups - ok I guess..."
Cons: "No way to know who was up next, who was in line for what number - should have corraling stations (some airlines have this) where you gather based on your number and can move out of the way for others. Getting onto the plan was awful - the aisle are SO TINY - I'm 5'6" tall and 140 lbs, trying to roll a small back through the aisle, and it was impossible not to hit 14 people. It's like you have to go to class on how to walk through the aisle and not be an idiot."
Cons: "one of the worst trip ever. although there were many turbulances, the captain did not appear to be proficient along the way. The landing was horrible as well."
Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

Cons: "Small seats, flight was late"
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "FLIGHT TIME"
Cons: "Bad turbulence throughout the entire flight. Hot temperature during majority of flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. New plane, super clean!! Even though the seats don't recline, they're still quite comfortable. I love how wide the aisle is...people have plenty of room to move around."
Cons: "They would not refund the charge for a carry on I made in error. I did not have a carry on. Would not give me info as to where I could take my complaint so I guess I took it here. The guy at the desk was HORRIBLE"
Pros: "When you land at Concord you are right near the parking lot!!!"
Cons: "on time flight. Accurate info on app. Correct seat assignments"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Earlier delay notification"
Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"
Pros: "The captain was very good, and we arrived early to our destination. We had to hold back before landing, due to smaller planes landing, so the captain pointed out some areas along our path! Loved it! The flight was smooth."
Cons: "We had to be in the boarding area an hour before the flight was scheduled to leave. However, because of the way that the flights are scheduled, people were still deplaning from the previous flight for 25 minutes after our gate arrival time."
Pros: "The staff was great"
Cons: "Seats were way to small for tall people with long legs..........."
Pros: "Affordable but no free water or snax"
Cons: "Cheap feeling seat. Thin plastic shells packed tightly together. But hey- its cheap!"
Cons: "Extra fees"
Pros: "The price!"
Cons: "Flights in both directions were late."
Cons: "Flight delayed when we ere told it was early. Waited and waited."
Pros: "The pilot landed smooth."
Cons: "We were boarded and waiting on the stuffy hot plane with no air. The seats were so small and tight and then we had to get off the plane and take all of our belongings and waited another 3 hours to get back on the plane after they had told us something was wrong with the plane. It was a horrible experience. And we received nothing for the inconvenience when I had to cancel my work day so I had no compensation and lost clients because of cancelling last minute on them."
Pros: "Cheap fare, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Small seating, small snacks , extra charges for anything"
Pros: "The staff and crew are extremely polite and focused on good service."
Cons: "The seats on the Allegiant MD-80 don't recline AND the space between one row and the next is EXTREMELY tight. Much tighter than I have seen in an airline in a while."
Pros: "It got us there and back for a descent price. The flight was fine but the seats are not comfortable and do not recline. I wouldn't suggest Allegiant for anything more than 2 hours and that was even pushing it."
Cons: "We arrived 3.5 hours early and the line was very long. They must have had a system glitch but didn't communicate to anyone in the line as to what was going on. When it did come time to board, they told everyone in the line that was going to Cincinnati that we couldn't check in until 2 hours before the departure time. Apparently there were some other flights that left before us. If they had told us to keep our place in line and to let other people through, that wouldn't have been a problem. But, they didn't. Their own website says you should check baggage at least 2 hours before your flight and no more than 4 hours before. They took it upon themselves to change the rules on people who arrive early. Then, once they no longer had anyone else to check in, they changed their rules again and start checking in people for Cincinnati about 2.5 hours ahead of time. A little communication and brain power from the staff would have gone a long way. After all that mess, the flight was delayed leaving about 15 minutes without any updates from Allegiant either."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Pros: "No hassle. No delays."
Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Cons: "We were moved gates a few times. Delayed a few times, finally on a plane and they deboard the whole thing. No one seemed too apologetic at all. Pretty much who cares, after spending money and being moved all over seeming like they cared would've been nice."
Pros: "Last week I flew to Florida on this airline. I quickly wrote a stellar review because the flight crew was sincere, nice and kind. Apparently, that is against policy and on this flight there was no hint of that nice attitude. No frills, no courtesy, just transportation."
Pros: "The flight itself was great. The Flight Attendants were pleasant and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't take too kindly to the Service Agents on the ground. The Service Agent in San Antonio wasn't very accommodating or supportive to my needs. I had a problem that needed resolved and instead of diligently helping me, she would turn to another customer, totally ignore my concerns and speak Spanish with this other woman. When I was at the counter first, not the other woman. The Service Agent in Orland on my way back was rude as well. She gave my Mom and I attitude about my luggage being overweight. Told us to pay the $50 or figure it out. We had expressed already paying the $18 to check the luggage to begin with and wanted to see if that amount could be included in the $50. The Service Agent scoffed at us and turned up her nose. Great air service, horrible ground service."
Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"
Pros: "The crew was plesant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 35 mins. Then we couldnt get luggage when we arrived because of lighting. We were told to go one place and our luggage was taken somewhere else."

Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"
Pros: "Easy airport. Easy for rental return, going through security, and walking to the terminal. Quick loading time. Nice, clean plane with plenty of on-board crew to accomodate."
Cons: "Damage to checked baggage from Mesa to SGF. A quality, thick, hard-sided suitcase developed a crack in the side. Abnormal pressure would have had to be applied to cause this type of damage. Cheaper or soft-sided luggage would have experienced damage to the contents. Unfortunately, I did not check the luggage before leaving the airport to file a complaint."
Pros: "Flight crew was very kind"
Cons: "The security crew made me go through security twice and made my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter stand while they searched her bag"
Cons: "Having to pay for drinks. But, I didn't even not mind it that much. I'd much rather a cheaper flight"
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."

Pros: "The Bacardi"
Cons: "How small the bottles are."
Pros: "Nothing about it at all"
Cons: "I didn't like the turbalance on the plane I didn't like the service check in line Need more people helping in the airport"

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Second delay in a row"
Cons: "Delays both ways"
Pros: "The flight was 15 minutes late arriving in Springfield, and we then were forced to sit on the tarmack for an additional 10-15 minutes because the arrival gates were over were occupied by two, TWO, idle aircraft.

Cons: "When about to get on plane, carry on taken to checked bags; 5 people already on plane were required to come back off and check bags. I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."
