Airline reviews

Pros: "I liked the price and that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Everyone was moved around a lot to try to social distance so I was closer to more people than I would have been on a regular flight."

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."

Cons: "$50 bag fee for small carry on is punative."

Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The seats were far too close to have any kind of real comfort."

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."

Cons: "Free cokes, water, and peanuts would be great."

Pros: "Pilot was friendly"
Cons: "A little confusion about departure gate"

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

Pros: "The captain was very good, and we arrived early to our destination. We had to hold back before landing, due to smaller planes landing, so the captain pointed out some areas along our path! Loved it! The flight was smooth."
Cons: "We had to be in the boarding area an hour before the flight was scheduled to leave. However, because of the way that the flights are scheduled, people were still deplaning from the previous flight for 25 minutes after our gate arrival time."

Pros: "Quick"

Pros: "the staff was nice."
Cons: "the soda can was 2$ and for a rum and coke 20$, the plane was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Crew friendly and professional"
Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"

Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."

Cons: "The airports restaurants closed and security shut down as well. We were prisoners in the airport with only a vending machine. Unbelievable. Believe the Allegiant Air stories from 60 Minutes. The stories are true."

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

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."

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

Cons: "The beer"

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

Cons: "The seating is terrible. Everyone is like sardines packed away."

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."

Pros: "Kids board first and you dont have to worry about seating if u have a young child. Also, the nonstop flight was so relaxing."
Cons: "Not much..."

Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."

Cons: "It was raining when we landed and we were told the guy didn't want to come out in the rain to open the door so we were stuck on the plane for a while. Being Florida, it rains. If it's your job to pen a plane door, I would think it's reasonable you do it in the rain sometimes. Then up to the passengers on board whether or not they want to get out of the plane when it's raining."

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: "The staff is always helpful and flights are comfortable."

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: "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: "This flight was a return to airline travel in the 1980s in a good way! The plane was clean. The seats are among the most generous seats today. The best and brightest surprise was that each flight attendant was genuinely polite and welcoming."

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."

Cons: "I didn't like how the air was turned off before we were allowed to leave the plane. It made it difficult to breathe with my asthma."

Pros: "No lay overs"

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: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."

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

Pros: "landed safe ."
Cons: "long delay . actual usual delays with airline . with out exception get very sick every time i fly with allegiant . makes me question proper hygentic maintaince / ventallation system vac and clean. i fly jet blue,southwest and virgin, usually with out illness. if there are health checks by the airline , post them !"

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

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."

Pros: "Reasonable price for non-stop flight. Staff very helpful and personable."
Cons: "Late, which seems to happen alot with this airline. Have to pay extra for many thngs: selecting seat, carry on bag, snacks, drinks."

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: "Friendly crew. Flight on time"
Cons: "Felt like sardine in coach. Everything costs $$$"
