Cons: "Alaska Airlines is always a great experience"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed, changed the seat I chose to a middle seat without telling me til I boarded."

Pros: "Excellent flight"

Pros: "The cookies are delicious."
Cons: "The flight was tumultuous and the landing was rattling."

Pros: "Comfortable and reasonably spacious."

Cons: "My flight from SNA to SEA was also on Alaska ut this plane was a downgrade. No inflight entertainment in the seat back, not the relaxing pink lights, less comfortable seats. There was also an altercation between passengers in my row. Made the flight very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great crew and snacks"

Cons: "No problems at all but flight was rerouted to San Jose"

Pros: "Features was nice crew was great"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Over all quick experience"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly"

Pros: "Flight was fast, crew was pleasant, and pilot was good at communicating delays."
Cons: "Children were pretty annoying, but that's expected. Maybe a coloring book should be offered like when I was a child. Biscuits are meh."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Pros: "Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats and aisles are ridiculously close together and chlostophobic. I was in an aisle seat and was constantly being bumped by the carts, crew and passengers even though I had my arms within my seat area."

Pros: "Smaller plane so the two seats on each side provide more room. Very comfortable."
Cons: "This is my second Alaska flight at this time. Both times it was late for departure and it’s the first flight of the day!! Once was a break failure light (understandable) and today was a manifest issue...how do you lose a passenger from scanning in to boarding (30 minute) delay!"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. I didn’t have food or drink so I couldn’t really rate it"
Cons: "Landing was bumpy"

Pros: "Quick flight Good selection of entertainment Being able to text your friends is really nice"
Cons: "Waited for an HOUR in the plane for some paperwork. First we waited like 15 min for the first set, but it was the wrong one (missing some key verbiage?) so we had to wait EVEN LONGER for the correct paper to show up. Get your damn act together, Alaska. Luckily we had some tailwind so we only arrived 20 minutes late... BUT STILL."

Cons: "Overbooked almost didn't get a seat even though I bought tickets months ago"

Pros: "Very pleasant flight attendants."

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

Pros: "Pleasant crew"

Cons: "I called and wanted exchange my flight purchase for a credit for another flight as I had gone into the hospital the day before and received a doctors note regarding an infection of the ear and I was instructed by my physician to be weary of flying immediately and I have the note from my physician to provide if necessary. After speaking with multiple people they said they do not have a medical clause and I could not get my money back or even a credit to reschedule a flight."

Cons: "Did not like the rates for wifi. First r such a short flight it should be FREE."

Pros: "boarding, staff"
Cons: "all good"

Pros: "The people who work for Alaska Airlines"
Cons: "I had a carry-on suitcase, but it wouldn't fit. It had to be checked, which was what I was trying to avoid."

Pros: "On time and efficient service, Alaska made the entire journey easy and terrific. I will continue to use this airline it is a mile above the rest."

Cons: "A woman thought she had my seat. She said "I am 29A" and so I quickly got the steward so we could resolve the complication. It turned out she read 29A on her itinerary only it was for an earlier leg of the trip. Instead of understanding her accidental oversight, the steward said to us both, "you have 29C and you 29A whats the problem?" I understand he was busy, only 2 passengers booked for the same seat would cause a problem on a full flight. He should have understood her accidental self-seat assignment change because she read the seat from the earlier flight. She and I weren't trying to have issues, we just wanted to sort out what we thought was an overlap in seat assignments."

Cons: "It's confusing that SFO to SNA is in international. I almost missed my flight after running to the air train in a mad dash after going through security in domestic Alaska. Stressful..."

Pros: "The crew were even more friendly and chatted with me, the flight was more empty so I had an entire row to myself and was able to sit near the lavatory. I was ablessed to watch "Hidden Figures" during the flight, a movie I had been anxious to watch but had not had the time. And the coffee was delicious! Whenever I make my own travel arrangements I always fly with Alaska!"
Cons: "Bit of a bumpy ride due to some turbulence, however that cannot be helped."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, I had space because I got bumped up to premium class which has some nice legroom, the flight itself was smooth"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. ..."
Cons: "I gave up my seat for a family to sit all together and attendant at the counter said that I would get an email & money.... So far have not received anything."

Cons: "It was a bit cold on the plane but it was a smooth flight."

Pros: "Nine was great."

Cons: "Delay boarding"

Pros: "On time. Big space. Friendly attendance"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Clean new planes with keen crew and service"
Cons: "Sitting in back of plane - but that's on me for scheduling a flight last minute"

Pros: "Sonoma county airport is the easiest airport to travel through with the friendliest TSA and airport employees. I got there 40min before my flight where I checked my baggage, went through security, and had 15min to spare before boarding."
Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."

Pros: "I was running late but was already checked in, the flight boarded at 5:30am and was schedule to take off at 6:15. They were nice enough to keep the cabin doors open as I finally boarded at 6:05am, making the flight. Not to mention we even arrived about a couple minutes earlier than scheduled."

Pros: "Friendly crew, quick loading."
Cons: "Seats keep getting tighter and shared armrests are difficult with adults sitting next to each other. Very slow unloading. Too many people using overheads since you started charging for checked luggage."

Pros: "The flight departed on time, as well as my first flight, which was very satisfying."

"No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made"

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."

Pros: "They were ensuring everyone wore the requirements of masks on the flight or you didn't fly."
Cons: "There was no social distancing on the flight due to it being full. We had to switch out planes which caused an hour delay. No food and no one came for trash which I just left my empty cup on the seat. No flight attendants came through during the duration of the flight. The Wifi didn't work but I didn't need that for once."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"

Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"

Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"

Cons: "AA needs to be more prepared than delaying"

Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."

Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."

Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."

Pros: "Worst experience food is very bad"

Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "On time departures. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."

Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."

Pros: "Polite and professional"

Cons: "I'm still waiting for my 10 pm flight and it's almost 2am."

Cons: "Second time I fly to Springfield and it's delayed at least a didn't have to sleep in the airport like the first time"

Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"

Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."

Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."

"I like the fact y’all get me to my destination on time."

"Worst plane ride ever. So uncomfortable and it ran late was just not a great company for us"

Pros: "Quick boarding. A bit of personality from pilot"
Cons: "The delay at gate was said to be 10 minutes- no update for at least 30. Almost an hour waiting for gate"

Pros: "Nothing. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for 3.5 hours with little communication or apology. The seats were very uncomfortable. Terrible turbulence. Not even a complimentary soda for all of this. I will never fly Allegiant ever again."

Cons: "Was surprised to see 0 social distancing in the plane. It was packed and not everyone had masks. Should be mandatory."

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"

Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Cons: "The seats are very hard."

Pros: "Boarding was super smooth,"
Cons: "Offer some type of entertainment, ie internet or something"

Cons: "I would have liked to have a drink of water for free!!"

Pros: "Crew was very good and friendly."
Cons: "I would have appreciated a “free snack & cola”."

Cons: "The plane was filthy. It made me sick thinking that im stuck on this plane that they never clean..in the peak of sick season."

Cons: "The landing. the approach was so rough. I've flown 6 times this year. And that was the roughest approach ever"

Cons: "Seats, snacks"

Pros: "Not much after sitting in the airport for two extra hours on both flights"
Cons: "They could have boarded flights on time or at least explained why the flight had been delayed."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. We arrived early."
Cons: "It was too cold & they kept turning on the lights (it was a late night flight)."

Pros: "Enjoyed isle seat."
Cons: "Wider seats."

Pros: "Crew was nice for the most part."
Cons: "Didn’t leave on time. Would be nice to get something complimentary for all the wasted time. Would like to be able to watch something"

Pros: "Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water..."

Cons: "Be on time, 3 hour delay."

Pros: "All wa great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ticket prices are always the best. Even though The flight was delayed by 30 minutes we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes but we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"

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: "Fight was changed then late"

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

Pros: "Check in was fine Wait was short Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE SAD Could not have updated the seats on newer Jets."

Cons: "The beer"

Cons: "they charged me more money because i need alleges air . ap"

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "New plane!"
Cons: "Boarded too early!"

Pros: "Nonstop on time and as expected"

Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Left late"

Cons: "Allegiant needs to put more than just school bus seats in their aircraft."

Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."

Pros: "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: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Could of had more selections on the flight for snacks"

Pros: "Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc."
Cons: "NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!"

Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that they canceled the entire flight on the day of the flight so I had to pay for a last minute ticket which was much more expensive!"

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

Cons: "Significant Delay"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."

Cons: "Muy mal aerolínea"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Having then bill me for each little thing."

Pros: "Staff was wonderful!!"

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

Pros: "friendly crew clean plane, speedy service"

Pros: "Great flight staff and every allegiant like we've had is very friendly and professional"
Cons: "don't like the extra price is tacked on when you purchase your tickets online each suitcase and other fees"

Pros: "Easy to navigate"

Pros: "I had a great experience with Allegiant. The airline had a great rate, professional staff, and great service. I'd recommend Allegiant to all my friends."

Cons: "I purchased a “first class”seat when the door close I switch from my seat to the front seat to put more distance with others passengers since I’m a transplant paciente. The rude flight attendant told me in a very bad tone to go back to my seat that I couldn’t seat in there . Only to see later that she put her coat in there. I got up later to go to the bathroom , also I have overreacted bladder and she told me in same rude talk go back to my seat that if I couldn’t see that the do not get up signs were on. I felt literally she yelled at me . Never asked me if I needed help , or just wait a little . I literally pee in my pants"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Roomier seats"

Pros: "Good job"

Cons: "The seats are too narrow"

Pros: "Worst experience I’ve ever had traveling and I travel a lot. United needs some better works and to compensate for my 14 hours of sitting in the airport for no reason."
Cons: "Everything that happened was completely shitty...."

Cons: "Plane had mechanical problems for an hour"

Cons: "0 space felt like two people were sitting on top of me the entire flight. Seats are so small. No room to even put my arms at my side. I'm 5'9 and my knees were scraping the seat in front of me. Uncomfortable the entire flight. only nice part of the flight was the captain and crew."

Cons: "Asked which sandwich was most popular, burger or chicken, and flight attendant told me she was a vegetarian. Diet Coke had one small ice cube."

Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."

Cons: "Cold, not enough space for carry on"

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "United Arlines has a lot of room to improve. It’s clearly just in it to make money and doesn’t care about the individual customer"

Pros: "Flight was on time, smooth with efficient boarding and quick baggage retrieval."
Cons: "Only one beverage service shortly after takeoff. No additional offers of drink or snack on 6 hour flight. Attendants were sitting around in rear galley. One was knitting! I told them that trash receptacle was full in restroom. The response was "I'll put on gloves and "push it down" but it was still unusable fifteen minutes later. Had to pay $7.99 to access flight map. No earbuds were offered. Attendants were invisible except for collecting trash."

Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"
Cons: "Entertainment is boring and tired, United use to offer better free shows and movies!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"

Pros: "I had window seat"

Pros: "Love it"

Pros: "This was the final leg of our Toronto to Orange County trip. It was 1 ½ hours. We got on fast and took off on time. I slept through most of it..."
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services..."

Pros: "I was in Economy Plus and it was as nice as any type seat on any other airline."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could serve a snack in mid flight as it's a long long way!"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cut one hour and took off when I made chek in they gave another ticket I was supposed to arrive 6 pm in my destination I arrived 11 pm and they were very very rude when I tried to complain about it! United no more!!!"

Cons: "Extra for carry on extra for movie,extra to eat,cramped sitting for 4 hours,earphone jack broken,screen control broken,keep paying more for less,sucked"

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "What entertainment system? This was terrible. While so many airplanes have personal screens and entertainment systems, this flight was a find your own connection and good luck. Not very helpful and on a VERY late flight (due to weather)."

Pros: "Quick, smooth"

Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't lean back on this flight, it was able to I think it was just jammed."

Cons: "I was forced to check in my carry-on bag (and pay). My flight was delayed and therefore I missed my connecting flight. I was unable to change seats, and the United staff were I accommodating to assist with the "Basic Economy" fare."

Pros: "The free pass to united club lounge"

We had 2 in our party that had made the plane (grp4, child n wife).
