Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Seat power charger didn’t work"
Cons: "If they had noticed the first plane was extremely hot before boarding everyone and leaving the gate and if once they found a new plane they had bothered to put fuel in it during the hour we deplaned, walked to a different terminal, and reboarded. Also, if they had passed out drinks or snacks during the flight."
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "The pilot and steward"
Cons: "Both flights delayed. No information at all on my the first one was delayed. The second, due to mechanical incompetence"

Pros: "Free movies available in flight"
Cons: "Airplane temp never comfortable Airline staff not friendly Wheelchair service terrible"
Pros: "Nothing really getting home"
Cons: "Freezing whole flight Coffee was warm not hot Lady in front of me never charged for her drink (beer)"
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Pros: "Everything was smooth, organized, professional! Loved the entertainment options, the direct flight, smooth and comfortable!"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Attentiveness, service, and smiles!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."
Pros: "I needed to run real fast to the connection flight and gladly got there on time."
Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"
Cons: "Pilot did not give consistent updates for delays"
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "My entire flight experience was delightful. Was dry impressed with the staff both at Hartsfield-Jackson and DFW...and our flight crew was positively sublime."
Pros: "During my experience on 19 November I encountered only wonderful crew members, from the gate attendants to the on-flight crew. Everyone was extremely helpful and kind."
Cons: "Earlier in the day when I was checking in, there was a prompt to be added to the list of volunteers to take a different flight should one of my later flights (it did not specify, I flew from DAY to ATL, and then ATL to ORF) was overbooked. My schedule was accommodating enough that I selected yes. In ATL I was called up as a potential volunteer as they needed 3 volunteers to take a later flight that day. I was told that I was not initially assigned a seat since I had earlier agreed to be a potential volunteer. I was okay with all of this. We were told that the decision would be made at the end of boarding, and we would know if our seats were needed. At the end of boarding they called for the 3 volunteers to board. I was the last one to board and was given my seat assignment. Once I got on the plane I saw that someone had already been assigned my seat and let a flight attendant know what had happened. I stood on the plane for about 10 minutes while the flight attendants and other crew members tried to figure out what had happened. My name was not listed under any cabin (main, comfort, etc) even though I had a ticket and a seat assignment. Eventually they had to open the doors again for me to get off the plan as there were no available seats. Once I got back to the gate podium I was booked on a later flight, as would have been the case had the normal course of action for volunteering to give up my seat taken place. Everyone was extremely helpful in trying to figure out what had happened, but it was still frustrating that it had to happen in that way. Luckily I don't believe the delay caused any major delay for the flight. In the end, things worked out fine, it just seems as though this is an issue that didn't need to happen."
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical difficulties"
Pros: "The crew were professional and courteous"
Cons: "The fight was delayed multiple times, starting at a 5:44 takeoff and finally taking off around 9:15. It was delayed in 30 min increments, which made it hard to do anything else around the airport since I was constantly in a state of "about to board." A frustrating experience. No posts of extra snacks while waiting, or compensation or explanation of what caused the delay."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"
Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."

Pros: "Liked the selection of channels and movies."
Pros: "Boarding reasonably quickly; able to find overhead storage for my roll-on even in Zone 3; departed on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight. MD-88 not as comfortable as the Airbus from Chi to Atl."
Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Pros: "Seats are crowded together, nowhere to move, no storage, reclined seat is in your face for 10 hrs!"
Cons: "The plane, the seats the food"
Pros: "Length of flight was good, one of the flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant arguing and having words with a passenger BEFORE the flight even took off was very alarming, the attendant had walked past the seat, we saw her face change, she halted and walked back to the passenger and a very heated and negative exchange ensued, then another flight attendant came out and threatened to evict the passenger from the flight, this was before the flight even took place .... all passengers were like just remove them already ... t his is a short flight and most of use were connecting from a long flight from overseas ...."

Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"

Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so we missed our connection. The entertainment system was down during the flight and all they did was apologized over the speaker. There was no rep waiting to help upset customers so we had to wait TWO hours in line as there were only 2 girls at the counter when there are 6 counters. They were completely unapologetic and although they set us up on another airline to fly back, the whole experience was completely unsettling. AVIANCA NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."
Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."
Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."

Flight delayed 1.5 hours.

Flight was cancelled because they didn’t have a plane. Waited in the airport for hours after being delayed 4 hours initially. Had to drive 15 hours to Florida. Never flying Allegiant again and will never in a million years recommend this poorly constructed airline.

Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Pros: "No leg room & very misbehaved children sitting behind me. The children screamed the whole time, kicked our seats, and the mother had no control. If you are any taller than 5’9”, you may want to consider an exit row seat to have room for your legs. My knees were jammed in to the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Great fares even for last minute booking."
Cons: "Services and comfort as expected for the price."
Pros: "On time flight... good stew's, all around pleasant experience."
Cons: "the seats are hard and very narrow."
Cons: "Very dissatisfied with boarding and told we had to pay for our luggage but noone else did .I had prepaid for 1 incase I brought big luggage but I brought carry ones. So I was charged 100..but everyone else's was larger"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly"
Cons: "A little confusion about departure gate"
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: "Very efficient. You cannot beat the price. All I expected is to get there."
Cons: "The plane was very clean and looked new, the seats were comfortable but did not recline. I missed that."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "All went well. No real disappointments!"
Cons: "A little cramped but not terrible. Would like to know kayak fee up front before booking and all hidden charges!"
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Cons: "Flight delayed when we ere told it was early. Waited and waited."
Cons: "Baggage claim very slow"
Pros: "It was exceervice"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything about Aligiant is horrible. Service, attitude, even the pilots can’t land smoothly. As a diabetic, they don’t even give you water withiit paying for it. Had my wallet in my checked bag and almost had a health issue."
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, even water"
Pros: "Everything. Boarding stared early and, although the plane was full, everyone was seated and ready for on time takeoff"
Cons: "Plan to curtail service at AVP! Planes are always full!!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 4-5 times before it was cancelled all together and rescheduled for the following day. I lost over $200 in hotel charges and valuable time with family. A 3 day trip was decreased to a 2 day trip. Extremely disappointed. After sharing our experience with others we heard the same thing happened them."
Pros: "Price!"
Cons: "Left/ arived 30" late"
Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."
Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."
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."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "High baggage fees. Airplane sat for 30 min after boarding for fueling and some type of technical specifications. Seats don't recline."
Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."
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: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."
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: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "Direct flight, low price"
Cons: "Paying for a seat. Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Even snacks and water are only available for a fee. Seats do not have much padding and are not comfortable."
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite. One in particular expressed a great sense of humor throughout the flight and had a great rapport w/ passengers. Flight was on-time. Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."
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: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Hard landing"
Pros: "I am a little disabled... Am in a electric wheelchair, can't speak very well, this was my first flight alone and my chair would not lock in upright position after unfolding it. (If I leaned back on the backrest it would collapse/fold up. I learned I had to lean forward to keep it up.) Everyone was very accommodating and very helpful! At the Provo Airport they gave me a regular wheelchair and I showed them how to remove the lithium battery, remove and stow the joystick and how to fold my chair. No drinks or snacks unless you pay for them. On arrival I waited for everyone else to exit but also took advantage of the lavatory to relieve my bladder ;-). They were waiting trying to unfold my chair. I gave them instructions to step there and lift on the arms and up it went! I showed them where the joystick was, they pulled it out and connected it to the arm, put the battery in the bag, plugged it in, zipped up the bag and I pressed the green button and Voila! it was done! Thank you to the Awesome Allegiant Crew!"
Pros: "I sat in the front row so that I had leg room. It was worth the extra 20 bucks."
Cons: "No champagne."
Cons: "The LA to Eugene leg was delayed in departing, but this was an improvement on the cancelled flight from Eugene to LA. Arrived at the airport 2 hours early per their instructions to find the flight was delayed. Thirty minutes later they cancelled the flight and then provided no information concerning the new flight the following day."
Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."
Pros: "The crew was great."

Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "Everything was very nice."
Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."
Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."
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???)."
Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"
Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"
Cons: "cushion on the seats are a bit dead. I wish they notified us of gate changes at O'Hare."

Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"

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: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"
Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."
Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"

Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."
Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "On time arrived early"
Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."
Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."
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: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."
Pros: "personal service"
Cons: "This flight didn't happen."
Cons: "Very small plane. I have to valet my carry on which meant removing all my medicine (I am a cancer patient) and my camera and carry them on board with me."
Cons: "Nothing was fine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "Good"
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."
Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"
