Pros: "Lots of water"
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."

Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Cons: "I was not able to use this flight from Dallas because of the Hurricane Irma's impending closure of Sarasota. So I had to purchase a one way, First Class ticket from Dallas to Tampa so that I could get home before the hurricane hit.

Cons: "Seats are hard. Sat in the exit row."
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."

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

Pros: "On time great staff"

Cons: "The flight was delayed from 9:35 PM to 10:15. No announcements were made at the gate. We were all standing around (no seats left) and only had text or email notifications informing us.

Cons: "Food was horrible. Salad 90% celery chunks, and beef that was 90% gristle. I paid extra for more leg room but got a bulkhead seat that had less leg room , and cramped, hard to access table and video screen."
Pros: "I took two connecting flights on American Airlines between Los Angeles and Lisbon period on the website American claims to have charging and or electrical ports in every row. There were none on either flight. To make matters worse, when my tablet and phone batteries both died before the end of the first flight, there was no inflight entertainment, other than 1 ridiculous thing available, on either flight. American has switched to BYOD for entertainment, but forgot to provide a way to charge our own devices. Incredibly stupid."
Cons: "On top of that, one of the flight attendants on the Philadelphia to Lisbon run was a hella snarky guy with a bad attitude all the way through. I would be surprised if I am the first person to complain about him."
Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "I wish more food"
Cons: "The man at the gate was rude and tried to tell me I needed to pay 50$ to bring on my small purse, while his assistant said I could put it in my carry-on. Even more strict that Spieit airlines and higher prices. They didn't even bring around drinks because of "turbulence" unless you were first class. The plane shook slightly more than a smooth flight for only a small fraction of the flight."
Cons: "Broken in-flight entertainment system, broken ac plug, broken arm rest"
Pros: "Liked having LCD screen for viewing movies and such"
Cons: "Cramped seating, but I guess this is par for the course these days. Pack people in like sardines and make them drool over first class seating."
Pros: "Fast and early"
Cons: "Tv screens kept freezing"
Cons: "I was not a fan that the overhead compartment for my row was not available due to the life raft in there. I understand you have to have one on board, but I think it should be more at the emergency aisles. Also the size of the seats and the space you get is not really worth the price anymore. No matter how big or small someone is, its not comfortable. Airlines need to get back to how the seating was back in the day with great leg room and the seats are a bit wider than what it is now."
Cons: "tvs weren't working correctly during the entire flight"
Cons: "I despise Heathrow. I'll only go there or use an airline there as a last resort."
Pros: "Everything was awful about the flight."
Cons: "The crew members were extremely rude, especially, Michelle and Micheal they should not be on long flights with such awful attitudes. None of the tv's, usb charging Ports worked. AA was the worst airline to fly overseas. Very disappointed."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Cons: "I WAS NOT ALLOWED TO BOARD MY FLIGHT BECAUSE I WAS ONL,Y 19 MINUTES EARLY RATHER THAN 20 MINUTES EARLY FOR CHECK-IN. SOUTHWEST WOULD NEVER BLOCK A PAYING PASSENGER BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T CHECK IN 20 MINUTES EARLY. I PAID $600 FOR THAT FLIGHT AND WATCHED IT SIT ON THE RUNWAY WHILE I WAS BLOCKED FROM BOARDING. IT WAS 20 FEET AWAY FROM ME IN THIS TINY AIRPORT. MY CO-WORKER WAS ABLE TO GET ON, BUT I WAS A COUPLE OF STEPS BEHIND BECAUSE OF RETURNING THE RENTIAL CAR."
Pros: "They flew us back to Charlotte in good time."
Cons: "Prior to take off as the plane backed away from the ramp, we heard a noise for several minutes from under the plane. It sounded like something with the wheels. Kinda unnerving. Just prior to taxiing the plane stopped, the pilot announced a technical difficulty. They had to reboot one system to correct it. We heard more wheel noise. Almost like the doors over the wheels were stuck. Again kinda unnerving. Once airborne everything was smooth."
Pros: "The entire plane crew to the ground crew did their best with a situation that was out of their control. The luggage door would not close, so we had an apps 4 hour delay"
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "We were delayed multiple times and landed extremely late"
Pros: "Nothing unexpected happened"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, and the plane wasn't completely full so there was a little room to stretch out. And you'll never hear me complain that American Ninja Warrior is on tv."
Cons: "The plane was late, and I had a connecting flight. Luckily I made it in time, but my connector, despite also being American Airlines, was in a different section of the airport. And the seat was really uncomfortable when sat in for two hours."
Pros: "One crew member was very funny and helpful which unfortunately we forgot his name but he looks like Oscar from the Office if that helps. He was awesome! And the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "James. One of the crew members on our flight he was extremely rude and had no interest in helping you with putting your carry on away and if you have to put any effort he automatically says "you have to check this in" luckily my boyfriend got up and arrange the baggages easily and done. James was obnoxious, rude, and very unfriendly. The entertainment was absolutely terrible. It was a 10 hour flight the movie choices were slim to none. When I took a flight from New York to China and rode United Airlines we had every movie selection imaginable."
Cons: "Taking 48 hours to get home and it would have taken longer if I didn't insist on being put on standby. Being told it was probably "god's will" that my flightless canceled."
Cons: "Missed this flight because of missing the first flight"
Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful ."
Cons: "The crews at the airports are extremely rude and impatient."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."
Pros: "I paid extra for the added leg room!"
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: "A plan to deal with a hostile mom with a screaming kid that was out of control."
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: "Crew was nice and efficient."
Cons: "Check in counter needed more help-line very long"
Pros: "Direct flight was very nice. Took off on time and arrived slightly early. Flight crew was friendly and efficient."

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived early and boarding was smooth. Seats were not that great. Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "A free beverage and snack."
Pros: "On time flight... good stew's, all around pleasant experience."
Cons: "the seats are hard and very narrow."
Cons: "Check in."
Pros: "Very efficient. Arrived early."
Cons: "Seating very tight."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the price was low."
Cons: "Communication during our delay."
Pros: "Everything was done right"
Cons: "The landing was rough"
Pros: "The prices are good. That's pretty much it. I can't say anything else"
Cons: "you get what you pay for. Both flights delayed. One delayed for 12 hours. limited days to fly out"
Cons: "Squished and smelly but good value overall and good crew"
Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."
Pros: "Nothing to like!"
Cons: "Allegiant has an obscure boarding policy that shuts down online and in-person check-in 45min before departure. We got to the Allegiant desk 35min before departure to get our boarding passes and no luggage to check, and were told we missed the flight because check-in wasn’t allowed anymore. That policy should be made very visible and clear to anyone buying tickets on Allegiance as no other airline does that to passengers. We lost 4 tickets and had to buy tickets for a flight the following day. Horrible experience!"
Pros: "The flight left on time and was fine."
Cons: "This flight was at a small airport and we waited in line for security longer than at a large airport. There were 5 flights going through security at the same time with nothing scheduled later. Why not spread them out a bit and save everyone some time?"
Pros: "Made it home safely."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac 2.5 hrs. Then plane delayed 10 hours. Then waited on tarmac 2 more hours. Horrible first experience flying with Allegiant."
Cons: "Long wait due to plane speaker malfunction. Offered free drink pours on flight once we finally took off but it was a very small “2 sip” pour."
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!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."
Pros: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."
Pros: "Better than on time Smooth sailing through south bend airport!"
Cons: "Just have to remember thrift airline No seat going back"
Pros: "After the delay, we were treated to complimentary soft drinks and snack mix. This was after sitting in the plane for over an hour, though."
Cons: "We spent two hours of the delay in the airport and then eventually boarded. However, another problem with the plane developed and we waited for at least an hour more in the incredibly cramped plane. The seats are bearable for a short flight, but they’re hard to endure with multiple delays. The boarding was also disorganized. There were two announcements: one for people who needed extra time to board and another for the final call. Nothing in between."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"
Pros: "Easy to book. Easy to check in. Inexpensive. Flight on time. No frills flight, which in my opinion was great. I have no complaints. Overall a great experience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "From entering the airport, gate, and plane- nothing is more pleasant and efficient than Allegiant flights. I was able to attend my grandsons bday and back by start of the next week- round trip at REASONBLE prices! Thank you."
Cons: "I am ok with it but the walk way was so filthy on my return trip. I know plane was late and we boarded late... but a really quick vacuum would have taken only a few minutes. I realize it was messy from cl"
Pros: "Nonstop on time and as expected"
Cons: "Seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "Mostly the Price! Wonderful Crew Too!"
Cons: "Wish they had flights on Friday and later on Sunday..."
Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "Very efficient service... actually a good experience."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."
Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."
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: "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: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"
Cons: "Literally had to pay for every little thing that is usually included in other airline tickets."
Pros: "Fast flight. Good climate control"
Cons: "Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Cons: "Having to pay for drinks. But, I didn't even not mind it that much. I'd much rather a cheaper flight"
Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
Cons: "First Allegiant flight, so I did not realize the 40 lb bag limit. Made for a last minute headache during checkin."
Cons: "You take my money for nothing yu stolen my money why why you kayak my husband doesn't travel from Desmoines he is not in system why ????? bring my money back to my account aa"
Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"
Cons: "On time arrival."
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."
Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Pros: "Punctual flight, fabulous flight attendants, and the best airline food I’ve eaten in a long time. I can’t remember the last time passengers were given a menu to order food from ."
Cons: "No WiFi on board"
Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"
Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Pros: "Easy connection and on time"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Olane was way too small. Plane was hot. Plane was noisy. Would bever take that flight again."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "I loved it"
Pros: "Flight was punctual. Boarding was smooth. Crew was courteous. Flight was smooth and on time arrival."
Cons: "Very limited cabin space."
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "The snack"
Cons: "The crew missed 6 rows in their beverage service and when someone in those rows asked to be served they acted like the rows were lying, my row was one of the ones skipped and when they begrudgingly came back to serve us they ignored the Chinese man sitting next to me and didn't bring him anything to drink they also refused to serve a snack when someone wanted to buy one. If I can ever fly other airlines than United I do and this experience confirms why."
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and staff was friendly. I was in an emergency row so I had a little extra leg room in my middle seat. Also had wifi on this flight."
Cons: "Snacks need to be updated. I prefer the good old fashion pretzels, so maybe providing an option would be better."
Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."
Cons: "I was flying out of De Moines, IA to DC with a layover in Chicago. I received an email stating that my flight was changed to 3pm. While the email stated the flight number it didn't state the destinations or the airport. It turns out the email was referring to the layover flight that I had in Chicago. I even called the number provided in the email to verify the change and instead of giving me information on my flights it gave me a status update of the flight at that particular time of the day (Which was the day before when I called and was not something I particularly cared about). This wound up being very bad for me because I slept in and missed my flight. I booked another flight for the next day but a very bad snowstorm hit the east coast and was unable to travel back to DC for 5 more days. I had to get a hotel room in Chicago and spend over $500 in expenses because of this error. United should be more specific when notifying its passengers of any changes by email. This messed up a lot of things for me and I'm very upset with how United handled this"
