Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "It was good service 4me..."

Pros: "I made it safely to LAX"
Cons: "We waited in the plane on the tarmac for an hour. My boarding pass did not have a seat assignment, when I approached Alaska agents at the gate, they were rude and dismissive. Arrived late to LAX. Alaska offers free texting & entertainment while in the air it didn’t work with my iPhone."

Cons: "Nice plane. Decent leg room, pleasant flight."

Pros: "Comfortable roomy seats"
Cons: "We had to wait 30 minutes after landing before we could exit the plane."

Pros: "biscotti, boarding process, crew was pleasant"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Waiting on the runway for no reason. Poor communication by staff and pilot"

Pros: "The upgrade to premium was kool and worth it, if the flight wasn't filled. I thought it was a filled flight so I bought the upgrade. Then after purchase found out it wasn't filled, but it was OK cause the perks were AMAZING!"
Cons: "It was a short flight so not much to say that needs to be better."

Cons: "Blankets"

Cons: "No food, just snacks."

Pros: "I'm an alaska member so I have taken quite a few flights with them and I notice the service difference after a while. Generally the crew was nice."
Cons: "There was no beverage or food service till ~2 hrs into the flight. No air issues etc. that would cause a delay. There was only 1 service in a 5.5 hr flight. The previous crew served us beverages at least 2-3 times and carried water up and down. Coming from +90 degree weather everyone is thirsty. I bought food soon as I got on, I have a toddler.. it was delivered over 2 hrs later, luckily I came prepared with lots of snacks. Also there are no hot vegetarian meal purchase options on the flight to Mexcio/Costa Rica (which was the first leg of our trip) we had to make do with cheese/fruit platters."

Pros: "everything was great!"

Pros: "Courteous staff, on time."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "I very much liked boarding early in the boarding process."
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade and I had a woman with a baby behind me kicking my seat the entire flight, so my upgrade was a total waste. Also, I was in a premium seat and I ordered a glass of wine which I PAID for. On the return trip I was told that premium seats include a beverage and I didn't have to pay, so on my flight to LA not only did I pay EXTRA for a more spacious seat and was kicked and knocked the entire flight, but I then had to pay even more for a beverage. NOT impressed."

Pros: "Staff go above and beyond to be friendly and they truly do have a serve with a smile attitude."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Gate misinformation snafu."

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."

Cons: "Boston landed at Gates C Run to catch flight at Gate 'N" Stupid....but who gives a shi***** right?"

Pros: "I enjoyed the experience and friendly staff"

Cons: "Last row seats don't recline. Unfortunate while on a red eye flight. There is no entertainment. Flight attendants could learn to juggle or do some magic tricks. Tell jokes maybe?"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Baggage crew definitely stole my sunglasses right out of my luggage. I left them in a case in my baggage - they took the glasses left the case. I reported to Alaska, but haven't heard back for a few days."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, left the gate on time, and in-flight service was good."
Cons: "The flight took off late because of a lot of planes leaving at the same time."

Pros: "I liked how the captain came thru the plane talking to everyone and engaging. I didn’t try any food so not sure how it was but the coffee I had tasted burnt. I didn’t use the entertainment available but the WiFi was so slow I was unable to use my device."
Cons: "Most of the plane was asked to use the back restrooms which caused quite a line for quite some time."

Pros: "All the staff was friendly and did the best they could"
Cons: "Had the last seets in row 32 Very uncomfortable. Was not given anything to drink for over an hour. When the meal trays reached us in the last row of seats, no more hot meals available..... We were by the bathrooms in the back of the plane. Every time someone use the bathroom the doors kept slamming and there was really no peace to close your eyes or sleep if needed on the long trip Very disappointed. Jerry"

Pros: "it was on time and boarding was quick. Crew was nice."
Cons: "the mini plane was scary. It felt like it was going to fall apart. The pilot could have alerted that he was about to land because it was frightening to just land, after being in extreme turbulence most of an hour. Plane is very very small. I don't know how a large person would fit in a seat."

Pros: "Everything about our round trip flight on Alaska Airlines was lovely,"
Cons: "We do however have a complaint. It was necessary for my husband to be seen by a physician in Washington who recommended he return home as soon as possible for evaluation. When we called Alaska Airline to ask about the possibility of doing so, we were told we could fly out the next day for an additional $1000.00+. This on tickets that cost us less than $600.00. We chose to keep our originally scheduled reservations."

Pros: "Inflight wifi and entertainment."
Cons: "Not clear what food or drink was free."

Pros: "They had complementary beer and wine on the flight!"

Cons: "I missed my flight due to tellers taking their time doing their job"

Pros: "Alaska airlines has got it together, probably the best airline company out there. Customer service, punctuality, comfort, baggage department are all top notch!!! I'm so glad they're in Philadelphia so I can come back to this tightly run ship after struggling with other airlines for years!!! My experience was AWESOME!!!!"
Cons: "NOTHING"

Pros: "This was the first time flying for my granddaughter. She is 16 and was a little apprehensive to fly. The pilot & crew were very kind and welcoming. They provided a peaceful setting with their warm smiles & welcoming greetings. She commented about being greeted as she boarded the plane & being thanked as we said our good-byes. This was a trip she'll always remember. Thank you, Alaska Airlines!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was efficient and courteous"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible (like most airlines), too many levels, and by the time we can board, we have a long wait in the loading corridor, at a standstill in the aisle. Seats are cramped and the only thing they offer to eat (free) is a small cookie. They charge too much for internet connection also. I wish airlines would just board from the last row forward, would speed the process up tremendously. I don't care about first class, MVP, military, families, they always seem to be in the front third, and that's what slows everything down."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight, comfort, crew and entertainment was good on my flight"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make my connection so it was put on the first flight from PDX to SAN in the morning. The bag was scanned as arriving in San Diego, but it is lost and they think it's permanent. I had all my favorite things in my bag (it was a 10 day trip) and now I have to account for all of them, submit a claim and hope I'm reimbursed. It was a horrible end to an otherwise great vacation :("

Pros: "Loved that I ended up in a seat with no one next to me for both flights."

Cons: "had difficulty finding how to input known-traveller number; missed out on the TSA PreCheck line... but the airport wasn't very busy so..."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and polite."
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped, so it was a little uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew members especially Terrace"

Pros: "The beverage was good."

Pros: "Everything was just great! Everyone was super helpful"
Cons: "My boarding pass had he wrong gate but I was able to find my way."

Pros: "The flight was generally like any other flight"
Cons: "I had paid for a nonstop flight at a certain time to get home for an important meeting, but because I booked through a third party they said I was going to be bumped to another flight that would get me home over 12 hours later WITH a layover. That's frankly not what I paid for. That makes me not want to ever book with a third party again. I don't appreciate not getting what I pay for. Eventually someone took a voucher and I was able to get on the flight, but I'm still upset because, as the customer, I did nothing wrong. Just book the proper amount of seat for the proper amount of people. So frustrating."

Pros: "Excellent contact from airlines when delayed"
Cons: "Seating comfort. Lacking cushion softness"

Pros: "Direct flight, crew to Stl great, to Pdx average"
Cons: "No suggestions at this time"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Polite crew. Flight was on time."

Pros: "I loved that on the way home to Hawaii there was an option to get an app to access free movies and TV shows. It was awesome!"
Cons: "I tried going from the Entertainment link to the free chat link but it didn't work. Maybe I was at the wrong altitude or something but it would have been nice if I could switch between the two option of chatting and watching the movies and TV."

Cons: "Having food & being on time would’ve been nice?"

Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Hmm pilots safety records paid over 2500 for comfort eats wanting to feel a bit more special"
Cons: "Food was awful service main cabin mediocre at best I don’t think delta realizes how important all the customers are not just business class as we do have choice out there throwing the piece of chocolate out there at the end to a horrible experience doesn’t make it ok"

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

Pros: "Yes, the crew was helpful and patient. The food and drinks were good."
Cons: "Clarity in the PA system could be better. Too much background noise."

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

Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."

Pros: "Movies and snacks on board. Friendly staff"
Cons: "They should provide free headphones"

Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."

Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on 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."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Old airplane. Everything was worn out and stained. Entertainment system is ancient. Economy seats are so small you can barely get in and out."

Pros: "Direct flight on time"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"

Pros: "The crew was polite but not overly friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Boarding was orderly but it was hard to hear the announcements of the zones. I flew economy and it was like flying in a frozen sardine can. There was absolutely NO leg room. At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "The Delta crew is always nice I got wings and a lot of snacks"
Cons: "On the McDonnell Douglas 88 (MD-88) there wasn’t any IFE ( In Flight Entertainment) screen."

Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight"

Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Delta changed our seat assignment and our seats sucked"

Cons: "Toilets space are below standards"

Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late because the gate was understaffed. During the flight, the crew told us they couldn’t serve us because of turbulence, but then served first class."

Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Delta does not transfer your luggage in Canada even if they say they do. It will not make it to your final destination"

Pros: "Great service and the staffs were wonderful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The exit row seat on this leg out of PHL to SLC did recline! No need for Delta Comfort+ unless you want to get off of the plane ... faster."
Cons: "For some reason, the pilot couldn't figure out how to adjust the cabin temperature for the first hour or so. This made the flight (and I was sitting in an exit row seat, right by the door which is usually cooler) uncomfortably hot and muggy. Food? No food. Thank goodness for Delta Lounge (even if it was the one in PHL). Just snacks make this a poor option for many. I don't know what is up, but the USB charger on the two monitors didn't work and neither did the outlet between the seats. And I have two different sets of cables "just in case" and they're the 3-in-1 so I can try to charge multiple devices (Apple, Android and Samsung) but nothing worked."

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

Pros: "The A330 is So much better than the A320, More room, movies, games, wish the flight down was on a A330."
Cons: "Nothing- plane was full and pretty quiet. Bathrooms were easily accessed"

Pros: "The crew was extremely nice and helpful."
Cons: "Small crowded aircraft with minimal overhead storage. The seat pitch was so limited my knees were against the seat in front of me. The tray table couldn’t be lowered completely. Small child behind me kicked my seat during the entire fight."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival"

Pros: "Service and staff"

Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"

Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"

Pros: "Friendly staff and onetime aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in perticular"

Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

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: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"

Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."

Pros: "Spacious, clean, great host and hostesses. The flight arrived at our destination 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"

Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"

Cons: "Hello allow upgrades to first class if they're available even when the flight takes off -on my flight in to Atlanta the pump three people up to first class and love them to sit in on my flight home to sit still empty what's up with that ?"

Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"
Cons: "+$25 extra each bag, seats not near travel companion"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"

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: "This was a code share flight on a delta ticket but a virgin airline, the entertainment was great with the seat back selection, the seat comfy and the staff friendly."
Cons: "Firstly check in was a nightmare, travelling on a Virgin Australia Flight from LAX - BNE and a connecting flight BNE - PPP (Proserpine) all with Virgin Australia, and they claim they don't have the ability to tag your luggage the whole way through??? (I understand I have to collect it on arrival into another country and then take to a bag drop) but with the same airline they claim they can't do this? I travel a lot and with many other flights internationally and I can tag my bags with different airlines all the way through, but NOT WITH VIRGIN WITH THE SAME AIRLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH? They can't do it? Then 2 hour delay on the tarmac after taxiing out from the gate at LAX, which got us in late to Brisbane. The food on this leg LAX-BNE for the vegetarian option was terrible, which was strange as on the fist flight over from BNE-LAX it was the best vegetarian food on any flight I've ever had. Strangely 6 months out from our flight I tried calling Delta to upgrade our tickets and was told they had no way of doing it as the Delta computer system isn't linked Virgin system. Then calling Virgin to upgrade I was told I can't as it is a Delta ticker. We tried again a week out from the flight and got the same response and told to try at check-in. We tried then at check in and told they have no idea how to do this as only so many seats are allocated to Delta tickets and they can't access the Delta system?? So very frustrating and we could never upgrade?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Cons: "Social distancing"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Less turbulence haha"

Pros: "It was on time!"

Cons: "Charlotte airport needs to stop taking the protective cover off of my suitcase and I don’t get it back, this is the 2nd time that this has happened in Charlotte and it keeps costing me money to buy new covers and my suitcase becomes more damaged because they treat other’s belongings with no respect."

Pros: "Flight attendant Louis was great. He was very nice and friendly. Calmed me down when I was nervous about turbulent. Great staff overall!"

Pros: "no"
Cons: "on time departure"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hrs"

Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."

Pros: "Crew were amazing despite all the delays throughout the day"
Cons: "The weather lol"

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"

Pros: "Crew onboard was nice and helpful"
Cons: "No power outlets at my seat meant that my purchase of internet was pointless after my computer died and I couldn’t recharge it. My bag was checked despite being a priority Gold customer even though I pleaded with them to let me take my bag on board. When I got to my seat, there was plenty of room"

Cons: "Disgusting Food. Extremely uncomfortable seats: unable to recline far enough, my knees on back of seat in front of me, unable to sleep at all the entire trip. This was American Airlines, not British Airways. Cheap headphones kept falling out of line in port. TERRIBLE FLIGHT, Never Again!"

Pros: "Trip was wonderful."

Cons: "The AA flight from NYC was late arriving at Heathrow, causing me to miss the connection. AA/BA was very good about orienting me to the new plan, but the delay was very inconvenient and being in the last row of the newly arranged flight to Lisbon was downright unpleasant."

Pros: "See above"

Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"

Pros: "Flight was great!"
Cons: "It was an older plane. We liked the flight to Miami that had the super modern technology with the screens on every seat back to watch movies etc. This plane was kinda lame."

Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."

Cons: "The turbulence st the end made me puke."

Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."

Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."

Pros: "Relatively comfortable!"
Cons: "It was late."

Cons: "We taxied on the runway for 45 minutes. Grrr"

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

Pros: "Plane was lightly booked so plenty of room to sit and storage space."
Cons: "Plane left FRA 25 min late and occured more delay during flight. Came into DFW with 50 min delay and had to go through TSA again for connecting flight - why? So missed the connecting flight to LAX and had to get rebooked."

Cons: "Flight was a half hour late leaving O'Hare."

Pros: "Excellent. on Time. Friendly crew"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rude customer"

Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."

Pros: "Roomy, Helpful crew. Good food. I liked the yogurt/ granola / dry fruits for breakfast (something I can eat at 2:00am) . Landed early. Great flight all around"

Pros: "The crew was terriffic"
Cons: "seats are tiny, but that's what I paid for."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Cons: "."

Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."

Cons: "Very late"

Cons: "The seats in first class were actually pretty uncomfortable. The backrest has a strange curve. I think economy would have been better."

Pros: "Loved the individual seat back entertainment"

Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."

Pros: "Electrical outlets. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Changed the time of the flight affecting our plans why we did buy this route. Couldn't check in online"

Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No food, no pillow, stuffed plane of sickness and pathetic drinks on 5 hr flight which I paid $75 to arrive 2 hrs early... this airline is CHEAP. Good things were friendly, sympathetic crew and good movies."

Pros: "Movies"

Cons: "One of the reasons I typically avoid flying on American Airlines is because they have a mostly older fleet which means uncomfortable seat and poor, or in this case no in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "The lack of organization at he moment of boarding generates problems with the passengers .. A lady started to get angry when group 3 was boarding and she was group 2. She was waiting were group 3 was in line .. It would be better to have it like united that they have lines for all groups."

Pros: "Best airline ever"

Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay waiting for another plane was ridiculous."

Pros: "excellent services from employes"

Pros: "We had a delay due to an equipment malfunction. They deboarded us so we didn't have to sit on a hot plane. That was greatly appreciated. The crew and gate personell in Cedar Rapids were very friendly and organized in getting us all back on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "We made up time in the air to Dallas. We arrived early and waited about 15min. Due to another plane being in our gate."

Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."

Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Half the flight didn't wear masks, crew didn't bother to enforce."

Cons: "They charged $3 for water, nothing complementary."

Pros: "The passengers were spaced out, so we could actually social distance."
Cons: "Not all passengers wore masks. During a contagious pandemic. What the actual hell? Also, the tray tables are too small to use for anything, and we didn’t even get a free drink. Water and soda are so cheap, it’s absurd. I’d never take Allegiant again if they weren’t basically the only airline operating out of my town’s small airport."

Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."

Pros: "Crew was Aamazzing! Went above and beyond even to sit with one of kids while I used restroom, put my kids at ease, went above and beyond to make sure at such a tender age that they were okay! Made me very happy with allegiant and happy that I chose them!"
Cons: "It’d be cool to see more inflight services some day? As in maybe WiFi at a cost or TVs, seat recliner"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, the flight was smooth and my husband and I got a full row to ourselves."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable, no entertainment."

Cons: "Two hour delay"

Pros: "Quickness, efficiency"
Cons: "Nothing. I received all I expected."

Cons: "It wasn’t explained to me that Zone 2 allowed no storage of bags overhead. What was that $50 fee for? Hidden fees confusing."

Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "Not bad for the price, convenience beats all"
Cons: "First class"

Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"

Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"

Pros: "Slight weather delay, no problem. We were assigned to seats with additional leg room that we didn't pay for, that was a nice & unexpected upgrade."
Cons: "I was a bit annoyed that my TSA Precheck was not included on my return ticket although I purchased the RT tickets through my Allegiant account that has all of that on my profile information. Feel like this should automatically have been added when tickets were purchased."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable"

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: "Crew was very pleasant and professional"

Pros: "Crew was good, quite friendly and helpful. Seats are a bit uncomfortable but what airline isn't."
Cons: "Both flights of this trip were delayed over an hour with no explanation. Major impact was my transportation arrangements on the return were impacted and forced a rental expense."

Pros: "Boarding is always a pleasure out of Provo, with no security wait and a pleasant crew. The plane we took was a newer model, and is similar to many Fronteir and economy Delta planes. Unfortunately that means that even a short one-hour flight leaves pains."
Cons: "Our ride was very turbulent, whether that’s due to weather or pioloting I’m not sure. Either way it would have been wonderful to have a free cup of water. Sat for de-icing for about 20 minutes before takeoff."

Pros: "Everything was done right"
Cons: "The landing was rough"

Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."

Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by more than 2 hours, we were able to make it home."
Cons: "Started with constant delays. Flight ended up leaving around 8:30 when the flight was supposed to leave at 5:59. Once boarded there were no snacks, no liquor and only a few options to drink. The flight attendant was mumbling and kept on messing up what he was supposed to say the entire flight."

Pros: "Getting off the bus!"
Cons: "2.00 for water! Overpriced everything! Crew was not nice. Kindness goes a long way. Not for this crew impatient and just rude to other passengers. We pay good money to ride on the horror bus!"

Pros: "The flight was delayed for almost 4 hrs, but the staff was excellent. From the check-in agent, the gate agent, the flight attendants and pilots - everybody was upbeat and helpful."
Cons: "Just the continual delays, but the mobile notices were so helpful in not coming to the airport for a delayed flight. As always, the fact that the seats don’t recline makes the trip more uncomfortable."

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: "Quick non stop."

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"

Pros: "For a “no frills” airline I like the modern aircraft, professional and friendly crew and on time departure and arrival. The flight is too short for entertainment or food service but the snacks and drinks for sale are varied and acceptably priced."

Pros: "Overall very helpful and friendly crew, good flying e perience"
Cons: "Boarding is unorganized and takes extra time for everyone.....not exactly sure why it took so long. Don’t know if other airlines have better systems?"

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "Direct flight to my Destination"
Cons: "Rental car I paid for on Allegiant website didn't include $50 in airport and sales taxes making it look like the Allegiant rentals were about the same as renting directly from rental car companies. Problem is that Allegiant didn't include taxes in the quote or amount I paid online. Surprise when I got to my destination and was told it would be $50 more. Alamo agent said I wasn't the first person to have that problem. Then on return my bag was damaged and was told I could place a claim at the ticket counter. It would have been helpful to have an agent there or a way to contact an agent. No such luck. After bag charges, poor service and hidden fees Allegiant isn't really a great deal."

Pros: "Love the ticket price, but charging $44 for a carry-on? C'mon man! Added charges that were worth it? Priority boarding: $15, Exit row seating: $25 Also be advised that all food & drink is for purchase and must be purchased with debit or credit card - absolutely no cash."

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."

Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"

Pros: "Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."

Pros: "Very efficient service... actually a good experience."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."

Pros: "Great service and very clean plane. Staff did everything to accommodate everyone's needs."
Cons: "There was a lot more turnulance than expected which could have made for our shaky landing but the pilot did a great job regardless."

Pros: "Nice smooth ride"
Cons: "Could offer more options on snacks"

Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."

Pros: "The idea of a more competitive airfare. New South terminal in Austin is nice. Parking is cheaper. Food truck and outdoor seating are nice."
Cons: "No wifi. No entertainment options. You have to pay for snacks and regular drinks- even water."

Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"

Cons: "My flight to Vegas was cancelled the day of the trip, so the trip back did not exist for me. How does an airline do business this way? I had hotel booked and lost out on money."

Cons: "My return flight was rescheduled for a day later."

Pros: "I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"

Pros: "The flight left on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for carry on bags and they don't have a toll free number"

Pros: "Finally got home!"
Cons: "Flight was Delayed taking off by 2 1/2 hours due to mechanical issues. This flight along with the four hour delay when I flew to Orlando is a disaster. Probably the last time Allegiant will be flown!"

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: "The direct flight"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"

Cons: "I didn't like the schedule time change. Very inconvenient missed some of my planned festivities that were prepaid."

Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing. She was friendly, courteous and went out of her way to make my flight very enjoyable."

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."

Cons: "Very turbulent day."

Pros: "Everything was very nice."

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: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"

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

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."

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"

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

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: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""

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: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."

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: "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: "Enjoyed the free movies"

Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"

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: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."

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."

Cons: "This flight didn't happen."

Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."

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: "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: "united customer service quickly booked new flight for second leg as I was not going to make it in time"
Cons: "I did not like waking up super early in the morning only to sit at airport for 3 hours because an escape hatch leaked and got the radios wet. only to have the nearest tech over an hour away. and for him to not be able to do anything but let it dry out. Then the flight attendants did not even do a beverage service."

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: "The flight to OHare was fine. No problems whatever. There was no entertainment. The juice was ok."
