"Thanks"

"We flew First Class to LA from Denver on the Delta-branded contract airline - Sky West. On the way back, we flew First Class on a Delta Airlines owned jet, and the experience was so much better. The flights should have been comparable; but unfortunately cost-cutting by Sky West was evident."

"The terminal on my ticket was different than the gate number. We went through security and had to take a 15 min shuttle to a different terminal. Why not just go through security there? There were also no attendants at the gate to discuss seat assignments. My husband and I didn’t have seats together. Try on board crew was great, but the airport experience was lacking."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "More arm space and leg room for cabin"

Cons: "The check in process for Delta was a chaotic mess. There was no one to assist passengers, lines were crazy long. I overheard so many people complaining about missing flights and they could not get any help. I also think the amount Delta charges for luggage was insane."

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Nothing was mediocre about the crew or delta. The other passengers around us made a 4 1/2 hour flight feel like 8 hours of hell."

Pros: "The crew did a good job in announcing the arrival of the flight and where we are at and how far we are flying overall did an excellent job"
Cons: "If they had orange juice lol"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Cons: "The plane change in LA was confusing & not very clear."

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Airline was operated by Delta Air. COVID precautions with distancing on board were not followed. Flight was overcrowded- hardly any empty seats between passengers."

Pros: "Easy boarding and very nice crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Social distancing, purell wipes were handed out, food and water handed out in a baggy."
Cons: "everything was great. I love delta."

Pros: "yes"

Pros: "Loved it all. Thanks for helping me get home to Australia when other airlines couldn't."

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Cons: "not the cleanest seat/tray table"

Pros: "They left the bags at LAX. We we’re driving to Sun Valley and don’t have our ski clothes and equipment"
Cons: "Get our bags to us in the morning"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"

Cons: "No hubo comida suficiente"

Cons: "Bathroom floors could be better."

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"

Pros: "Flight crew was ok and boarding was really quick"
Cons: "Terminal 2 security at LAX is awful and inefficient Also plane had a malfunctioning switch and it took them 1.5 hrs to fix while we are on the plane. This was 1.5 hrs delay on a 58 minutes flight. :("

Cons: "... on top of that I kindly requested to speak with a supervisor and i was denied it. As a customer I deserved that. I would a ticket with Aerolineas and nowhere it said it was delta. I followed the baggage allowance explained on kayak website and on Aerolineas Argentinas. I took a bicycle which is free and i pay $100 to packed it as Aerolineas wanted. When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it. He said no and after wait there for a while before boarding i kindly ask to speak with a supervisor and the denied it and disappeared. I request a refund of my fee to you for providing incorrect information."

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"

Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"

Cons: "-"

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."

Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."

Pros: "I liked the fact that were were able to watch movies complementary, staff was very kind and looked good and for the most part the air craft was spacious than United Airlines"
Cons: "I disliked the fact that their weren’t any charging station, I wasn’t able to to charge my telephone device previously but I thought I would be okay sonce air crafts that I have boarded have out lets to charge devices, was an inconviencesince I wasn’t anle to contact family. Also there was complementary movies to watch but there werent any head phones that were given, united aire lines provided us with head phones for entertainment."

Pros: "The attendant was most helpful. Because the flight was not full, she allowed us to sit in the exit row, window and aisle, with no one between. I'm a tall person, so the extra leg room was deeply appreciated. I give her and the airline high marks."

Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been a little more friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."

Cons: "My registered luggage was sent LAX->MDE and i had a short change in MEX. Running out of the LAX->MEX plane, the crew the said: "don't forget to pick up your luggage".. and then all went pairshaped. One member of MEX staff claimed the baggage is going directly to destination, another said that it won't and i need to pick it up myself and do god knows what with it. LAX->MEX flight delayed by 30mins, 1hr change time. Everybody relaxed just me loosing all my boozy contraband as i had no choice but to put my registered luggage thru security."

Pros: "Outlets to charge your phone and watch movies."
Cons: "It wasnt specified which terminal to go to Aeromexico or delta. Going both ways. I had to pay a 40 dollar taxi to get me to the correct terminal .5 a mile away. And leaving in the early morning it was too dark and they convinced us it was unsafe and a 35 min walk. It’s def would be that long of a walk in Mexico since we had no idea where we were going."

Pros: "Tons of free entertainment on the screen in front of your seat! Movies, games, and details on your flight, all available on your touch screen. USB charging is also available."
Cons: "No one told us they wanted everyone with a roller carry-on to.check their bags. An attendant told my sister that her bag needed to be checked. We did not receive this notification until we were at the gate, boarding."

Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."

Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."

Pros: "The flight was quick and quiet with a kind crew and captain that had a great smile."
Cons: "I didn't like the food."

Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."

Pros: "Hassle free left on time arrived early San Jose nice airport and drive to red wood city picturesque Staff friendly and cookies great"
Cons: "On this occasion I actually enjoyed it all"

Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."

Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."

Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."

Cons: "Of the 4 FA only 2 were pleasant. The others were short and accusatory, not with me but other passengers not okay American"

Pros: "Everything was done in a good amount of time."
Cons: "Better room in seats....feels really tight"

Pros: "Staff, plane, ride - one of the nicest flights I've had in a long time"
Cons: "Nothing. Well, if you paid me to fly ;)"

Cons: "They cancelled the Flight and we had to book with Air France instead and made us late to our cruise"

Cons: "Flightleft 2 hours late and then an extra hour waiting at the next gate."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "We experienced flight delays, lots of turbulence, and my knees were pressed up against the seat in front of me the whole duration of the flight. They also overbooked the flight, so some people had to take a flight the following day."

Cons: "My entertainment screen was not operating. Could not recline my seat."

Pros: "The movie selections"

Pros: "Although they charged me $10 to book a seat for check in it allowed me to pick one that keep the middle seat open for my wife."
Cons: "To be charged to pick a seat. You should have revealed that in you pricing."

Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, and pretzels are gross"

Pros: "It was not crowded breakfast"
Cons: "Breakfast was lousy"

Cons: "Flight attendants completely unresponsive when overhead space was filled by a lot of backpacks that supposed to go under seats. Also, kept selling alcohol to people who were clearly drunk and were obnoxious and loud the whole trip."

Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"

Cons: "Not the best. Marginal food and hassled about carry-on that fit the size requirements. More like premium economy."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "More than 24 passengers on the flight from LAX to Chicago lost their connection to Venice After we landed in Chicago with 2 hours delays we all run to catch our flight to Venice and we got there 5 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave but was still there instead but we were denied access and send back to customer service"

Pros: "Pilot was informative."

Pros: "Staff at gate were very nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed three or four times throughout the day"

Pros: "the Bowing 787 was wonderful"
Cons: "flight had been delay and delay. we are very disappoint because we always think we are fly with British airway, we even went to check in counter of British airway but find out America airline are the solo airline.you guys can't advertized like that."

Cons: "I missed all my flights and my bags because of a stupid delay made by the airline."

Cons: "Small seats."

Pros: "Nice crew, very reasonable cost. Didn’t like the “no overhead access” but worth it for the money I saved."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously crowded. It’s really so uncomfortable and claustrophobic, even for shorter flights."

Pros: "Flight was on-time and crew was pleasant. This flight had movies available to watch!"

Cons: "Never given instructions on use if inflight WiFi. No food service on a three hour flight???"

Cons: "Check in process was an overbooked disaster Plane was very old Staff at gate and onboard were very rude"

Pros: "I liked having the built in screen on the a321. Americans streaming service has lots to offer but the built in screens have more choices. I get why they want to just offer the streaming but I appreciate all the choices! There was a group number enforcer at the gate to make boarding more organized! She was polite but told the mobs that try to use the premium line to wait their turn."
Cons: "I asked for upgrades to and from Chicago. I’m a gold member and fly for leisure fairly often. There are so many people looking for an upgrade these days that you’re rarely getting the opportunity"

Cons: "So little space between seats. Barely no legroom at all. I’m 5’ 5” and still found it tight. Feel bad for all tall or big ppl."

Pros: "On time arrival. Entertainment system worked on this Airbus, unlike the Boeing 737 (updated, but still outdated!) on the way out."
Cons: "Limited and unimaginative food options on board"

Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "What a great plane with a great crew. Truly an enjoyable flight. And the tailwind got us in quite a bit early!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "(mostly) friendly staff, decent chairs, decent set of movies available. (First leg by American, second leg by British Airway)"
Cons: "Paid for seats, never got them, ended up in a cramped flight with no room (I'm only 5'5", so heaven forbid average height people try to sit here. My wife was miserable, and got a back ache because of the small quarters."

Pros: "Very clean. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Paid extra for six inches of leg room but the seats recline 2 inches. Not comfortable. TV touch screen did not work."

Cons: "The seat I had reserved was given away even though I paid extra for it back in February. American Airlines rep said it was because when i book through a 3rd party like Kayak, they can't guarantee my seat assignment."

Pros: "The check in agent went above and beyond to get us on board."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online. Couldn't get a straight answer as to why. Kept getting the runaround from Kayak, American Airlines and British Airways. Never booking through kayak again."

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."

Cons: "Iberia does not have a check in counter at lax. All flights are operated by American, but ticket issued by Iberia. American could not locate my ticket and as a result I missed my flight. Iberia's 1800 number would not cooperate to release or rebook my ticket until a full day and 3 trips to the airport later when I made a manager speak to an American airline rep to explain and resolve what should be done with my unused ticket. Unbelievably inefficient and rude."

Pros: "Flight on time."

Pros: "I like the comfortable chairs and screen touch screen in the seat in front of me"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We purchased seats and they changed them without telling us so we picked new ones. Well guess what, we get to the airport and the same thing. I was seated at the front of the plane and my fiancé was at the back. Luckily a nice gentleman switched seats with me and we were able to sit together but it was the last seats that did not recline on an 8 hour flight. We will never fly American again. Their customer service offered no help and was extremely rude to us."

Pros: "Boarding was a mess - there were no announcements about boarding and the gate agent did nothing to promote order in the gate area. Thank goodness for the new planes on this route - the old planes with the blue "leather" seats were so overdue to be retired. Onboard entertainment was great and every seat had a USB port and AC outlet. Smoothest landing ever, I couldn't even tell when the wheels hit the pavement! It was also the first time I recall a female captain on American - maybe the smooth landing wasn't such a coincidence :)"

Pros: "Plane was the best. Newer model and took us one less hour to get to our destination."
Cons: "Boarding was a little messy. We had to wait even though we had a toddler with us."

Pros: "AA flights now have individual screens with free movies/videos/music/games. Power outlet and USB port included. Staff was polite, helpful"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I don't normally travel long distances, but when I do I fly with American Airlines. I found a round trip from Chicago to Los Angeles for only 170 dollars. I had an overall excellent experience. Thanks for the great hospitality."

Pros: "How spacious it felt and there were film selections"
Cons: "My film kept stopping randomly."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Cramped, claustrophobic space. Cabin too warm."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Usual delays in 15 minute increments. Then when we landed waited on Tarmac for 15 minutes then were dropped off at a remote terminal and left to wait for 4 buses to come and pick us up 45 minutes later, one bus at a time. Almost felt like I was in a third world country."

Pros: "Crew was nice and understanding how uncomfortable the flight was."
Cons: "The seats are now smaller than ever. AA made them more marrow, closer together and less reclining. With 1.2 mil miles I am switching to drlta."

Cons: "Flight delayed turbulence out of control!"

"Had to cancel flight as it was delayed by 12 hours"

Cons: "Sat on the runway and at the jetway at LAX for over an hour because they couldn’t locate a ground crew to get everyone off the plane. Changed gates to try to help. What airline can’t get their customers off the plane?"

Pros: "Crew was good but baggage claim took forever. The seating was not well arranged. The seats were very uncomfortable. The weight limit of the bags were unreasonable"
Cons: "Better seats could be better"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, super helpful, very friendly and understanding when it came to social distancing."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."

Cons: "Major delays, no communication from airline"

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

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

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish there was at least a free beverage."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind, attentive and caring. There was a special needs girl in the same row as me that was by herself and they were always making sure she was okay and comfortable as well as the rest of the plane."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly."
Cons: "the seats were pretty uncomfortable, that was my main problem with the flight."

Cons: "Built in headrests on the seats."

Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed departure with no explanation. Other passengers clogged up the overhead bins with small bags, purses and containers of to-go food. Causing me to place my carry on in an overhead bin multiple aisles behind my seat which made for a cluster trying to board and de board."

Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."

Pros: "Original low price for reservation"
Cons: "Large amount of additional fees making the original 'good' price not so 'good'"

Pros: "Nothing. It is a cheap airline and it shows. It is the worst airline I have ever flown."
Cons: "The crew was okay but it must be depressing to work for a company where you cannot get a glass of water without paying for it. I had never flown allegiant and was not prepared for paying $50 for my carry on bag."

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

Cons: "Fight was changed then late"

Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."

Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"

Pros: "Availability at last minute was awesome, and the price was excellent. The direct flight was great too!"
Cons: "No frills... no peanuts!"

Pros: "Cheap fare, nice crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Small seating, small snacks , extra charges for anything"

Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "EVERYTHING is extra payment, even a small carry-on; water $2!!!; seating is extremely cramped"

Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."

Pros: "Airport and onboard crew were nice."
Cons: "It was myself, my wife, and our 18 month old son. The trip was a complete disaster. The first delay was from 12 noon to 7:30 pm because the plane was unavailable. We left the airport and returned at 6 pm for the 7:30 pm departure. The plane was "available." We checked our bags, found our way to the gate, and eventually boarded "ontime." Instead of taking off, however, we sat on board the plane at the gate for 2 hours as work was being done. The work was first called "maintenance," then "a small error code." The captain teased us by saying "folks, just a few more minutes and we should be departing." The crew nourished us with a dixie sized cups of water and Chex mix. Then finally the airline gave up and deplaned everyone. Once deplaned, it was explained to us that they couldn't clear the error code, so they couldn't use that plane. But there was another plane coming from Las Vegas to use so that we could expect a departure around 12 midnight. 12 midnight rolls around. Nothing. 12:30 am. 1 am. Finally, a plane arrives. But then the airline holds us up yet again - turns out we can't depart after all because the arriving airport shuts down at 2 am. Gee, they didn't know that before making us wait another 3 hours??? Now they're offering a refund to anybody who wants one, as well as a hotel for the night and the promise of a flight at 2:30 pm the following day. At this point, many of us are looking up alternative flights to Eugene and even Portland. A $1,000 extra for us. We're not sure whether we can trust Allegiant to have an actual plane ready to go the next day. And we're too tired at that point to even ask why the next flight would be at 2:30 pm rather than first thing in the morning. So finally we line up to get a hotel voucher and find our way to the hotel. It takes over an hour to checkin at the hotel because it's the middle of the night and 150 people just showed up to checkin. We finally get to our room at about 3:30 am. I'm amazed at how well our toddler held up sitting on an airplane for 2 hours, sitting at the airport for about 6 hours, and waiting to fall asleep all night. We eventually made it back to the airport the following afternoon and, praise the lord, made it to our destination. Allegiant - NEVER AGAIN!"

Pros: "The price was unbeatable, especially if you don't pay for a checked bag, carry-on, or a soda on the flight. Very smooth flight as well."
Cons: "The plane interior looks like it was gutted, then fitted with hard, plastic seats. No headrests, no privacy for the flight attendants. Everything costs extra."

Pros: "My wife said that this was the smoothest airplane ride she had ever had."
Cons: "The first lady at the check in desk told us the wrong gate. We wound up taking a tram to another terminal, found out that we were in the wrong place, and then made it back just in time to board with a few minutes to spare. Anyway, the airline itself was o.k. and next time I'll check the arrival/departure board. Since we were traveling with only a carry on, it was a good price after all the "frills" were added (pay for carry on, pay to select seat). we still had a price lower than any other airline. So all in all, once we got on the plane it was a pleasant experience."

Pros: "Great cost. Boarding and crew were seamless and pleasant."
Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."

Pros: "The original price points for the direct flights are wonderful. You can actually book the week of a trip and save hundreds because those prices will probably still be the best. That is, until you learn about all of their extra fees."
Cons: "Wow, they sure do add extra fees for everything. Watch out. In the end, I bet it was cheaper to book with a major airline like American. They charge extra for each bag, including your carry- on, when you pick your seat you are charged depending on where it is in the aircraft, if you want a drink or food on the plane you will have to pay, if you do not print your ticket prior to arriving to the aiport they will charge you, etc."

Pros: "Last week I flew to Florida on this airline. I quickly wrote a stellar review because the flight crew was sincere, nice and kind. Apparently, that is against policy and on this flight there was no hint of that nice attitude. No frills, no courtesy, just transportation."

Pros: "I liked that they had a direct flight from Los Angeles to Bellingham."
Cons: "The delays were horrendous and a google search reveals this to be so common it makes me wonder if it's not part of their business model. Like, so bad I ended up booking a return flight on Alaska and just ate the extra $300."

Pros: "Flew 2 different legs with Allegiant, both of which were delayed for maintenance stuff. 2nd leg, we sat in the plane for an hour waiting for a maintenance guy, so my wife went to the bathroom. No toilet paper! When my wife asked about it, she was told "we won't be getting toilet paper for this flight." Inexpensive is one thing, but...dear lord!"

Pros: "Considering the fare was advertised between $350 and $700 with other carriers on Kayak, I took this one for $179, roundtrip, direct from LAX to Grand Junction."
Cons: "When the crew runs to get coffee in the terminal, make sure to do the same. I brought some snacks, but wish I had brought coffee. The man next to me kept creeping into my space which was incredibly annoying, but it was a relatively quick flight. Beats the two day drive from L.A. to Colorado."

Pros: "Nothing about this flight experience was good, with the exception of my overpriced hummus and crackers."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and archaic. Once we were all finally seated they came through 3 times with a paper trying to figure out who wasn't on board. As we taxied towards the runway a lady who felt dizzy coming on board threw up. The crew was obviously panicked and unorganized. We taxied back to our gate and waited for LA Fire for. to escort the ill lady off and clean the area. While waiting to taxi out the second time the flight attended, Tyeesha, was very rude to an elderly gent. He was seated in an exit row and she didn't think him capable. The lady on the aisle of my row volunteered to switch and Tyeesha' s response was a sharp, "Do you want to pay the higher price too?" When the lady next to me said she would gladly pay Tyeesha announced loudly that this discussion was between the two of them and everyone else needed to mind their own business. The lady offering to switch was really embarrassed, as was the elderly gent. Someone else was made to switch with him. They looked disgruntled too. In the air all the flight attendants were sharp and very direct. There were no please or thank you's used. Trash was collected silently and mostly with pointing. The armrest to my left had five flavors of chewed gum stuck to the side of it. My lap tray had grey and yellow sticky stuff on it and I chose to hold my food rather than let the two touch. The floors were untidy. The only reason I will ever fly Allegiant again is if I have no other options. It is 60 minutes closer to my house than SLC and I will be making the drive from now on."

Pros: "Seats were clean and nice"
Cons: "One crew member clearly is a disgruntled employee. It also should be against the law not to provide water without payment."

Pros: "The crew and pilot"
Cons: "Entertainment."

Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"

Pros: "Everything was super easy with Allegiant. This was our second time flying with this airline, and even though you feel like you get nickeled and dimed to death, the overall price is still much lower than any other airline. The plane was clean and the crew, both ways were awesome and in-tune with their passengers. Don't be fooled by the pricing, this is really an outstanding airline, we will fly again with Allegiant!"

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

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

Pros: "I sat in the front row so that I had leg room. It was worth the extra 20 bucks."
Cons: "No champagne."

Pros: "It's ridiculous have to pay to bring a bag on your airplane it's ridiculous that your staff at the Medford airport or unprofessional and lack common courtesy."
Cons: "Gate staff at Medford Oregon airport were rude and unaccommodating"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great. Pilots attention to detail..Great."
Cons: "Charging for every little thing including seat choice, bags, snacks. No complimentary beverages or peanuts. Not even water! In the long run, I didn't save money on this trip."

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."

Pros: "Flight was on time with a very pleasant staff"

Cons: "Every flight has been late or delayed by 1- 5 hours, unacceptable"

Pros: "I liked the price. Crew was very efficient getting everyone on board. Flight was on time. Your crew for the most part was very attentive. I fly between Albuquerque and LAX at least 2x a month. This was my first time with your airline. I am definitely going to use you again."
Cons: "A couple times staff was a bit inattentive. The elder lady in my row spilled her drink all over - on the tray and her lap. I had to ask 3x to get a napkin or something to help her clean it up. After the 3rd time she responded she was getting something but it was after she talked to someone and got a bottle of water for herself. It was unfortunate but overall I found your crew very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Base price and airport convenience."
Cons: "Add on pricing for booking the reservation, selecting a seat and any other possible need. "Required" arrival two hours prior to flight, but check in desk not available. Seats were thin and too narrow for most every body type."

Cons: "Overpriced !!"

Pros: "I like their phone app, as it was the only thing that consistently communicated with me what was happening with my flights."
Cons: "I'm average-sized and these planes are tighter than most other commuter planes I've flown. My destination flight was an hour late. It happens. But my return flight ended up being three hours late and an hour of that was spent in the plane as they waited for someone to fix a non-essential cabin video monitor. There was almost no communication either in the airport boarding area or on the plane to tell us about the ongoing delays, changing gates, new estimated departure and arrival times. When we finally took-off, the captain never even apologized or announced what the new flying and arrival time would be, so we were again left in the dark. The crew were ok. I could tell they were in the dark about much of what was going on, too, and were frustrated but resigned to working with Allegiant's way of operating. But they weren't able to muster anywhere near the level of friendliness, helpfulness, or enthusiasm that would have made a passenger's experience better under these circumstances. Instead, they left us to suffer just like they were, and that's the feeling we got. Also note that apparently there's no time to clean anything between flights these days. There was trash and crumbs and all sorts of nasty stuff left behind from previous flights. Things a bit out of the airline's control, but contributing to one of the worst flights I've taken were multiple crying babies and children almost non-stop, extreme body odors and emissions throughout (need better ventilation!), and this new trend of people thinking that the first to get up from their seats and with luggage in hand after landing, the first out the door (instead of filing out by seat order). This leaves others stranded and waiting for the entire plane to deboard, And finally, unrelated to the actual flight, but also contributing to my experience is Allegiant's nickel and diming approach to flying. They charge literally for everything (and not just a little), from your carry-on bag, to choosing a seat number, to using a credit card online. What starts as a very favorable cost to fly versus many other airlines, becomes unreasonable when adding in all the extra charges. This goes for in-flight food or beverages, too. Expect to pay for everything, down to a cup of water. I took Allegiant because it was the only 2-hour direct flight available and seemed to be a more reasonable price than other options. The time-savings never happened and the cost-savings wasn't worth it."

Cons: "i was somehow ‘offloaded’ from a seat that i paid extra for."

Pros: "Very narrow seat"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Sound quality on the inflight Entertainment was terrible quality."

Pros: "Great flight - very nice crew and service."
Cons: "A few dirty cups were left behind from the previous flight."

Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable. A lot of turbulence during the flight made me very sick. Landing was very rough."

Cons: "WiFi could have been better, and seats could have been better"

Pros: "The check in process at LAX was very efficient and smooth. and the crew on the plane was very considerate. And the tv system on some of the planes is very enjoyable."
Cons: "There was a technical issue on the plane so they had us get off and wait hoping they could fix the problem. It turned into a 3 hour wait. They covered a meal for us which was good and gave us $50 off our next flight. But I’m not sure I want to book united again. The lady at the service desk was not very patient (which is understandable since a loy of people had to rebook their connecting flights). But I was smiling at her and just asking how to go about changing our connecting flights and she seemed a little bit ready to get rid of me. And the next plane we got on, one of our tv screens didn’t work. And the connecting flight was delayed also because of a technical problem."

Pros: "The economy plus seats were extremely comfortable and boarding was relatively simple."
Cons: "The food was poor and the flight was delayed. The worst part was that the temperature inside the plane was like an icebox."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to print out my own labels for my bags. No one told me this . Mind you, I was already in line! I had to go print label. Get in line again. Attendant said I need to put the label on myself. And for me to step aside. I was not gonna get out of line again. No one was there to let customers know of this labeling. People were confused! Then I paid $25 online for my luggage. Then my luggage was over 50 pounds. I was charged $100. So I paid $125 for my luggage. Lax TSA Employees are rude and mean. Yelling do this and do that. Like we prisoners. I will never fly United again. I will let everyone know of my experience. Terrible customer service. Then your screens don't work on your airplane. Cannot watch movies. Therefore your plane is not up to par. But I paid up to $700! Never again. Good luck United."

Pros: "Friendly crew (on-board and at gate) and smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Terrible seats. No comfort. Had to stand up just to get my under-seat item out/put away. Felt like a sardine for 4 hours."

Pros: "No complaints."

Pros: "Left a little early"
Cons: "Smaller seats, no video or music options on a almost four hour flight. Why United why?"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."

Pros: "Ok"

Pros: "They were able to change my seat location from middle to an exit aisle seat, nice."
Cons: "No food choices"

Cons: "No reclining seats and no meal. Flew from LAX to CHICAGO. Very uncomfortable. Advertisement for free WiFi on plane, but makes you pay when you log in."

Pros: "Comfortable seats; good service; friendly crew"

Cons: "It would be great if there were music channels included in the online entertainment choices :)"

Pros: "The ON flight crew who tried to compensate for the lost time and poor management of the situation at the gate"
Cons: "Lack of regard for travelers by the staff/reps at desk. Avoiding questions asked by travelers, not making announcements when arriving at changed gates. Not assisting those who missed connecting flights or even answering questions about such. Rude offputting demeanor. Just an overall unpleasant experience"

Pros: "I liked that the plane didn't crash"
Cons: "The TV played a commercial that advertised all the shows and movies you could watch which lasted the duration of the flight WITHOUT the option to turn the TV off. Maddening. Just madness."

Pros: "It was as comfortable as possible given that it is a night flight. I don't know what to propose as these kind of flights are the "is what it is" type of thing."

Pros: "Spacious seats, seatback screens, and some empty seats made this a most comfortable flight"

Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Very negative about this company they did two times cancelation, at first was problem with lights in plane and we stay over an hour, then they say that the airplain has mechanical problems and we waited about one more hour, then they returned us to airport and we waited one more hour, finally after 3 hours they start to board us but service was horrible so rod boarding people. So I hade meeting with singing contract in the morning, I was late contract cancelled and I lose my money..... The company did not any compensation. I'm so Negative, negative, about this company, not recommended will never have again"

Pros: "The woman at customer service was very nice telling me my flight was rebooked for the morning."
Cons: "Airport closed with no accommodation or resources. Slept freezing in a chair. Late flight and stranded overnight with no compensation, apology or reason why/where to go/what to do."

Pros: "I had a medical emergency and the flight attendants were so very attentive, particularly Sue. It made all the difference and I felt better. You certainly never want to have that happen to you, but if it does you want compassionate and well-trained help around you."

Cons: "I'm 5'3 and could not even lean forward to rest my head on the table in front of me because there wasn't enough room. I shouldn't have to pay an additional 95 dollars to have what was previously considered a normal seat with normal leg room, especially after loosing 6 hours of my life due to United flight delays during the course of my trip."

Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "We were seated in the last row and on takeoff a stream of water started pouring on us from the overhead compartment. It was caused by a gentleman's water bottle leaking. He was sitting 4 rows in front of us. The stewardesses took action right away to solve the problem, but we did get wet."

Pros: "Service was wonderful"
Cons: "Ran out of food I wanted because I was toward the back of plane."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movie selections"
Cons: "My seat was given away to a stand by passenger. Even though I showed up on time the crew member refused to give me my seat back."

Cons: "Had flight delays and then had to get off plane because of maintenance. Ok I get it . No one wants to stay on a broken plane. But staff was just as aggrevated as the customers. I chose to reschedule for next day due to massive delays today. But compensation was even brought up. Not even points??? Ugh"

Pros: "The flight was timely and the staff was really nice."
Cons: "I sat in the row in front of the emergency exits in the middle of the plane. The seat did not recline and the leg room feels smaller."

Cons: "My flight to LAX was delayed by over two hours and I had to call and reschedule. I was rescheduled to an AA flight connecting in Chicago. The flight from Chicago to LAX was delayed by over four hours!"

Cons: "Not a fan of their Direct TV alliance, since it means that other entertainment options aren't available, as United wants the $$ from spending $6 or $8."

Cons: "Good trip good service"

Cons: "Easy for check-in and on time"

Pros: "I like that it was big airplane"
Cons: "I was sitting by the exited and I didn't like it I couldn't sleep at all because the seats were not able to go backwards there was a woman that was standing at the entire flight because it was so difficult to fall sleep...!!! She was older I kinda feel bad for her I am 22 but I didn't really care but this woman was in her 50s and I felt terrible for her."

Pros: "Flight attendants responsive, delay updates timely and appropriate, and we even arrived early after having to wait on the jet way longer than expected."
Cons: "Not enough gluten free / vegan options for snacks."

Pros: "I think these older flight attendants should retire if they don't like their jobs anymore. They were completely rude to many guest."

Pros: "Everyone was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Every flight was late. I flew from Nashville to lax and both of my flights were late there and back"

Pros: "Fast. Early. Friendly staff. Awesome flight."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was awesome. Would fly again in a heart beat."

Pros: "Not dieing"
Cons: "No tvs you didnt have enough over head space so i couldnt have my carry on untill my final destination. And then no wifi for the final flight to appleton and i purchased the beat wifinpackage you offered. The flight from chicago to lax on friday was a joke in soooooo many ways... United needs better management iif you ask me."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight delays on both legs of the journey."

Pros: "That it ended."
Cons: "Sitting between two large people, with no room to even put my shoulders back, it was a miserable 3 and a half hour flight. Back support was horrible as well. Wish it at least had some TVs to help pass the time, but no such luck. Would not recommend United."

Pros: "There was a 30 minute delay, but we managed to get to Chicago close to on time."

Cons: "No free wifi. No free entertainment. Smaller than a kids small fruit snack bag of trail mix for a 4+ hour flight. Gate issues delaying our boarding-resulting in late take off.- and delayed transit home to last available route of the night- thank goodness!"

Cons: "The boarding process is a bit chaotic. I honestly think the wi fi should be free."

Cons: "Flight left LA late I had a connecting flight to Lexington but I did make it after rushing to the gate I'm not a young person anymore"

Pros: "Seats seem to have less room. Very uncomfortable when the flight is sold out and I'm stuck in the middle seat. 5'9" not much room"
Cons: "Smaller seats less leg room"

Pros: "Orderly protocol"
Cons: "Boarding is chore based but it went smoothly."

Pros: "The price was fairly cheap. Now I know why."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, each while we were sitting on the runway. The let us know the pilot before had made it known it would need maintenance. They still boarded us and we sat on the hot plane sweating for two hours in a crammed tiny seat."

Cons: "What I already mentioned you make my travel a nightmare"

Pros: "No"
Cons: "Letting me know from the beginning that I need to scan some stupid code that is not necessary I waste a lot of time trying to scan the code and I couldn't to finally an employee give me a form to put what all ready was written"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Faster boarding More comfortable seats!! Crew was doing a turn around and we’re exhausted-not good customer service-crew too tired!!!"

Cons: "The social distancing was completely random. I had two girls sitting next to me meanwhile there were entire rows of seats completely open. Totally unnecessary!"

Cons: "Follow the rules "Social Distance" The flight was completely full. People sitting 3 in a row. We felt very unconfortable"

Pros: "Caring and through personnel in the face of a virus."
Cons: "WATER"

Pros: "Todo esta bien"

Pros: "The crew was super professional"

Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."

Cons: "Not pay to much for my luggage"

Cons: "Crew was not prepared with enough custom forms. When we arrived at airport it was a mad Scramble to find some."

Pros: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I didn’t even get a chance to take the flight. I realized my flight was for 12am the day I was supposed to leave within 2 hours of departure. I asked if I could get another flight was told no! I couldn’t even get a credit since I didn’t call within 3 hours of departure. I would not recommend!!!"

Cons: "I arrived at the airport on time, I had Mobil check in, went to boarding, waited for my turn. after an hour, my docs were check. then I found out that I had lost my coding form. I was directed to immigration to get a replacing form. On my way back, the tripulation didn't let me inn. I was 15 min. b"

Cons: "Being timely"

Pros: "Getting my boarding pass was a hazel and the flight was delayed about an hour and a half. Seats were extremely uncomfortable and they practically didn't recline. Everything on board was sold and nothing was offered complimentary not even a cup of water."
Cons: "What could be improved is, being on time. The seats could also be a more comfortable with a bit more legroom, room to recline, and space between people. Seats felt like I was sitting on the other person's lap. A small drink should be complementary."

Cons: "There was hardly any space under the seats and between each row so it was pretty cramped. Because of this, the flight was not very comfortable."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "a lot"

Cons: "I could not check in on my phone. I never received email or link to check in. I tried 4 times in the previous 24 hour period. Using the app wasn’t mentioned until on the plane. When we arrived at the gate, 45 prior to departure, we were initially told to wait until the boss was there. 15 minutes lat"

Pros: "Flight left on time! No hassle with carryon"
Cons: "I hate paying for water. Legroom was ridiculously short."

Cons: "Get the forms to fill up"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "More organization toward boarding"

Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"

Pros: "One of the worst experience I’ve had."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 3 hours! Completely ruined out plans."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing! Crew was rude and liars"
Cons: "Tried to work more with customers and try to accommodate."

Pros: "Nothing Volaris made us miss our flight and they charged us to be on the next flight tomorrow."
Cons: "Everything could be better."

Cons: "Everything they over charge on everything and they forgot to send our luggage so I had to wait till the next flight to get my luggage to get are boarding tickets the wanted to charge us $7 dollars for each person and for each luggage they charge us $50 dollars per when it should of been $26 dollars"

Pros: "The flight was swift without a hiccup, boarding was also done in a quick manner. Volaris is always great in service even at the counter."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know the baggage allowance and that we had to check in first via kiosk before lining up to drop off our luggage."

Cons: "Light free snack"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Everything could be better."

Cons: "The seats cannot recline and they won't even give a glass of water. I had to pay adittional 60usd for the documented baggage eventhough when I bought the ticket I filtered my search with flights with the documented bag included!!"

Cons: "Maybe courtesy soft drinks and peanuts"

Pros: "Please don't travel with Volaris, extremely old seats I felt like I was seating on a wooden board with some rocks on it. No room leg. You won't get any help from the Staff at check-in. I was charged $10 to print your boarding pass, the machines to print the boarding pass didn't work."
Cons: "Volaris need to get new seats. Volaris charge you almost for even breathing, I am not kidding. They ask you to use the machines at the airport to print the boarding pass but their logo is not on this machines that's how they make $10 on each passenger. Bad experience."

Pros: "I liked the boarding was pretty simple and went by smoothly. The crew was very welcoming. I was happy to know that the vessel was not fully booked and therefore, had some empty seats to which I moved to. I felt fine like any other flight."
Cons: "No entertainment but that is because it was a short 3 hour flight. Nothing else to report."

Pros: "Everything was fine. I recommend Volaris."
Cons: "Long walk to boarding gate."

Pros: "First time in my life that I've never been offered even a glass of water on a flight. I know this is a budget friendly airline, but on a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles to Guadalajara I would have appreciated a small cup of water."

Pros: "Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight."
Cons: "Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All the mosquitos that entered the plane upon boarding."

Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No real food only snacks"
