Pros: "ditto above"
Cons: "ditto above"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."

Cons: "Wobbly, tight seating. Broken tv/entertainment system. No legroom. No warning before turbulence."

Pros: "They had good movies"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Pros: "Nice FA's"
Cons: "We landed early and spent 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Really?"

Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."

Cons: "On time, friendly staff. Breeze to check in from Terminsl II at MSP"

Pros: "Desk staff member very helpful When departures was busy more staff were called immediately"
Cons: "Difficult to navigate online payment for extra baggage. Inconsistency about carry on sizes We paid for extra leg room in an exit row and we're given a very brief safety talk while 2 others asked to sit in an exit row and were given no instructions"

Cons: "No entertainment options or wifi available was a bummer."

Cons: "Very cramped. The guy in front of me reclined his seat and I could barely move."

Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Not allowing a personal item and a carry on bag for free. Seats were uncomfortable. No free entertainment (like on Delta flights). Boarded and didn't take off for another 50 minutes due to slow loading of baggage."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and they tried to make the service announcements funny. But SW has that niche. ."
Cons: "Sad they are turning into the nickel and dime airline. Kind a of a hassle so will need to bat Delta by $100 for me to lol at them again"

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff upon check-in"
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane, even upon boarding. A lot of debri on the floor from previous flight/flights."

Pros: "Identification was stolen in Schofield, WI Unable to get back to Minneapolis for the flight. Thanks, Kyle"

Pros: "Everyone and everything was extremely efficient. I particularly enjoyed the pre-recorded timed announcements."

Cons: "I tried to pre select a seat online. The seating chart indicated that the flight was full and only few middle seats and aisle seats were available. The middle seats were free but the aisle seats cost $15. I'm a big guy so I paid the $15. When I got on the flight I learned the flight wasn't full and there were plenty of seats available. I thought there must be a mistake so I tested it on the way back to L.A. from Minneapolis. I got the same email encouraging me to get my seat early and check in online. The seating chart indicated that the flight was full and only a few middle seats and aisle seats were available. So instead of checking in online I waited to do it at the counter. Sure enough the lady at checkin told me there was plenty of seats and even offered me and my travel companions a whole row so we could sit together. I feel like Sun Country is misleading their customers in order to make a few extra bucks. Lame!"

Cons: "No Wi-Fi on this place."

Pros: "They tried to separate me from my son in order to accommodate a passenger using a wheel chair. I accidently found out just before boarding. My son was NOT having it!! They changed our seats, putting us together again, without a problem or negative attitude. Total professionalism in an awkward situation!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "LACK OF WIFI"

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable."

Never flying Sun Country again. Not to mention the flight attendants repeatedly bump into my wife by reaching over her to serve people in the row in front and behind us. So rude..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The service"

Pros: "It was timely."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, no snacks, no food, no entertainment"

Pros: "Timely departure and arrival Aircraft was relatively clean."
Cons: "The event I flew to attend got changed, so I had to change the dates of my 'Going To' and 'Coming Home' flights. It was not my fault, but I got horribly overcharged to change my flights. I am not working right now nor do I get Unemployment; I booked the flights months ago while I was still working. In that situation, the airline could help a bit more financially. Airline crew going out was courteous and helpful, but there was one attendant on the flight back who was frankly rude to me and bullied me. I do wish airline food was a bit more reasonably priced, and cash payment was accepted."

Cons: "Boarding late"

Pros: "It was a pleasant trip I would recoment to any one"

Pros: "All employees were super friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Very painless experience. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints from this trip."

Pros: "Jodi, the head flight attendant serving our cabin, was friendly, attentive, professional, and is a huge asset to Sun Country and their business model and mission. She promoted the highest customer service and said she'd been with Sun Country for over 20 years. Impressive! She took our flight from enjoyable to exceptional."

Pros: "Everyone was nice, great leg space , comfortable, very helpful, reasonable baggage prices."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful customer service across the board - check in was a breeze, flight staff very attentive and cheerful, pilot was amiable and gave us a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The seats and rows are incredibly compacted - unless you're a small person you won't be able to move much at all. The aisles are the narrowest I've ever seen - if you sit on the aisle expect to be bumped repeatedly. There's also much less room under the aisle seats for putting bags/personal items."

Pros: "Very accommodating Wonderful staff Comfortable seating (exit row) Funny: Willy Wonka on the exit row instructions!"

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?"

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours. No honest apology"

Pros: "The direct flight is amazing. The status updates were great. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "Not much, it was great. No more masks for vaccinated people would be awesome."

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

Pros: "Cost of flight"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Couldn’t even get a cup of water."

Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Asked flight attendants for a cup of water as I was not feeling well and was told I could buy some water. I was also told my carry on was too big when it clearly fit in the container at the check in process."

Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"

Pros: "It was great"

Pros: "Affordable but no free water or snax"
Cons: "Cheap feeling seat. Thin plastic shells packed tightly together. But hey- its cheap!"

Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The $17.00 i paid to insure the flight was not honored. I had some health issues and needed to cancel. I was then told that the airline I chose through your site, won’t honor it. I am furious and am owed my refund."

Pros: "Friendly staff!!"
Cons: "Hour delay on flight"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Quick flight and overall nice crew."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Lost my bag"

Pros: "Plane, staff, made best of bad situation. Seats are only OKAY to Good, but NO airlines are really comfortable so by comparison they were good"
Cons: "The delay - this time not due to the airlines, so thus the good review."

Pros: "Wow so nice to have an economical fare to Baltimore! On time, courteous, uneventful flight. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."

Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."

Cons: "After the horrendous delays getting to my destination I just bit the bullet and bought new tickets (duplicates) on a different airline to get back home-- rather than risk a repeat experience. Ended up costing an extra $300 but at least I didn't have to spend an entire day in an airport trying to keep my 7 year old from losing his mind."

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: "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: "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."

Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "The flight itself was great. The Flight Attendants were pleasant and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't take too kindly to the Service Agents on the ground. The Service Agent in San Antonio wasn't very accommodating or supportive to my needs. I had a problem that needed resolved and instead of diligently helping me, she would turn to another customer, totally ignore my concerns and speak Spanish with this other woman. When I was at the counter first, not the other woman. The Service Agent in Orland on my way back was rude as well. She gave my Mom and I attitude about my luggage being overweight. Told us to pay the $50 or figure it out. We had expressed already paying the $18 to check the luggage to begin with and wanted to see if that amount could be included in the $50. The Service Agent scoffed at us and turned up her nose. Great air service, horrible ground service."

Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."

Pros: "While I enjoy the fact that Allegiant offers direct flights to Laredo at an affordable price, the planes really need to be updated."
Cons: "We really disliked that we boarded the plane and just before taking off they made us get off again and never did confirm the real reason. The planes really need better maintenance since this is the second time in two weeks we have to change planes due to problems."

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."

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: "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: "The prices are good. Anything additional (food, overhead carry on space) is an additional cost but this is how they make the tickets cheaper for people who don't need extras."

Pros: "I like the flight. It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."

Pros: "Crew polite, clean plane"
Cons: "Late, delayed. Price deceptive, extra charge to reserve seat and carry-on bag."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The staff at Ft Lauderdale airport was not customer focused. They were disorganized and rude. My friend paid $5 for his ticket to be printed and, at the very least, they should refund that. I'll never fly Allegiant again."

Pros: "It's really annoying to stand in line, get to the attendant and then be told to step aside and download an app for your phone and check in (and especially check bags) that way. I don' know the security or privacy of that app, plus it is just tedious and annoying."
Cons: "Seats on Allegiant are terrible, and charging to print out a boarding pass is awful. Charging for water on a flight where you have no other options for water should actually be illegal. Shame on them for that."

Pros: "friendly staff, good take-off - landing, all that jazz"
Cons: "Not knowing it would be a late take off. Other than that, very good."

Pros: "Didn't have any problems. Flight was on time departing and returning and non-stop."
Cons: "When I booked my flight, the website didn't give me an option of whether I had a carry-on or checked bag."

Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"

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: "Excellent direct flight at good price"
Cons: "Flight 339 not listed on TV monitors at Boise airport"

Pros: "It was fairly clean and the flight wasn't crowded."
Cons: "Flight boarded late, $2 charge for water (and it's not even good water), and no free carry on."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "First time flying Allegiant: Head's up! They charge you for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING and the overall experience is awful. Would you like to know what it's like to fly on a plane bound for extradition to a foreign prison...fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like to experience the unexpected thrills of being nickeled and dimed at every turn....fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like the answer to the question posed after paying $100 for two carry-on's: 'could this get any worse?' Answer: It does!...fly Allegiant Airlines. Here's how it all starts out they welcome you to the terminal with a wonderful opportunity to pay $5 for printing your boarding passes (unless you download their app). How could a piece of paper that small that no other airline charges you to print cost $5 you ask? Well that is the magic of Allegiant Airlines at work, if they can't make something simple; both costly and annoying then you aren't flying Allegiant Airlines. You then inquire at the check-in desk can my loved one and I sit together, and they say sure but you will have to do that at the gate. Ok some positive news here...but then it sinks in.. wait a minute what Airline are we flying again? ...Allegiant Airlines, and what is their motto?? If it is simple and easy it shall become both costly and wildly inefficient. You arrive at the gate with hope in your heart and they then tell you, umm no. Who ever told you that is a fool! You can make no changes to your seating this is a 40,000lb aircraft with a 300,000lb lift capacity and it can't handle you sitting next to your girlfriend it would compromise the avionics and we would all surely die. Then why on the app did it show open seats? Seats of course for a price! Not by section like a normal airline ohhh noo a price that was completely different for every single seat as if the seats were in competition with each other in some high altitude economy that makes far less sense at sea level.The helpful response to this inquiry was 'oh well that was then' I am looking at it right now. I don't know what to tell you.. What's next?! A surprise $50 charge per carry-on! Unless you read the small print on one of their emails that is filled with advertisements they make it look like another advertisement, I'm going to go out on a limb and say INTENTIONALLY as it is never mentioned on: (The check-in email, the purchase confirmation email, not mentioned by the ticket counter, not anywhere on the app, not written anywhere on the electronic ticket despite them announcing otherwise) They instead tell you right as you are boarding the plane and have absolutely no choice in the matter and have done this innumerable amount of times as the flight attendant was well versed in de-escalation protocol and a security guard was positioned an arms length away as she deftly charges your card on file... I have run out of characters for this post I can only assume this comment section is run by Allegiant Airlines.."

Pros: "I did not get onto flight"
Cons: "Allowing me to board; I showed up to Denver international with plenty time, I arrived at gate of new flight the check in attendant placed me on, I then watched my original flight close the gate and fly away while waiting for my next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "A lot. They could have had the decency to empathize with new travelers in this pandemic situation."

Cons: "The only negative was the weather!"

Pros: "They gave us the emergency row with more space which we liked!"

Cons: "Boarding process could have been better. I felt I was poorly informed of the technical issues and would have liked a better understanding of what was going on. Boarding and then having to deplane right before departure due to a tire inspection fail was unnecessary. I feel as though the inspection should have happened prior to boarding."

Cons: "Frontier has declined a saddening amount."

Pros: "Amazing it took an international pandemic to finally convince airlines to board from the back front."

Cons: "I was enjoying accept no food lolz"

Pros: "Air hosts and hostesses"

Cons: "Lost my bag and the lines were insane!"

Cons: "Plane was too hot"

Cons: "Computer systems were down and delayed boarding by almost 45 minutes."

Cons: "Delayed 30 mins after I arrived at the airport for unknown reason. Waited on tarmac another 30 mins (at least) after landing. We didn't get an explanation for 20 mins. The plane was literally 30 feet from the gate. It was almost funny how annoying it was. I'm surprised all the passengers kept their composure. NEVER AGAIN"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "The person besides me."
Cons: "We waited 40 minutes on the tarmac. :("

Cons: "The chairs were uncomfortable and didn't recline. You charge for a cup of water!"

Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "No priority boarding for kids under five?!!!! Announcement is not clear about gate changing and boarding zones. Charged 45 dollars on a small hand carried suitcase? And 40 for a large checked in suitcase? It doesn't make any sense......"

Cons: "Everything I hated"

Cons: "Delayed both in Mpls and Denver!"

Cons: "Be careful flying budget airlines. Their gate options are few if something goes wrong."
