Cons: "I don't blame American for being late but putting me on a United flight and splitting up my wife and I seperate seats was a little under the bar."
Cons: "Pilots could have at least tried to talk to passengers on what was causing delays. Just silence"

Cons: "Everything sucks"
Cons: "No food served on a 5+ hour flight...you had to pay extra for it and it didn't look like it was worth it. You also had to pay to choose your seat to be with other members of your group....this is all after paying for the flight itself! For the trip to Ireland from LA, for a group of 6, it was another $1000+! Just another way to get a few more bucks because they can! :("

Then my Phoenix flight was delayed by two hours that caused me to shift flights in Charlotte because i would miss my connection. Lastly, they had to change a break on the plane leaving Charlotte so instead of getting home at 7 like i was supposed to, i got into Norfolk at 1139 pm."
Cons: "Still waiting to get to the terminal."
Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."

Cons: "Late leaving Monterey. Other than that, fine trip"

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Pros: "I was really impressed by the dinner and breakfast choices. I liked that the plane had several bathrooms, and great-looking staff. It’s sad to fly somewhere and see staff not care about their appearance. They were also very attentive and personable."

Cons: "Plane was a half hour late and had to run to catch our connecting flight"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Great communication from pilots, and the service was great."

Pros: "Great crew and plane"
Pros: "The new clean plane. The pilot and crew were great."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. It was already a late flight with 2 children"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "The friendly personal"
Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."
Cons: "Boarding started almost an hour late but the status never went to delayed (they just said it was on time but kept pushing the boarding time back). Arrived in CLT with only 20 min before the next flight departure."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Landed early."

Pros: "Friendly-on time-love the charlotte airport"
Pros: "The crew moved quickly to get us in the air once we had a plane to get on."
Cons: "I waited in an airport for 10 hours because there wasn't a place to get on. They messed up the schedule then two different planes had problems that made them unsafe. This made me feel uneasy about flying with them at all. Overall not a good experience."
Cons: "Boarded an hour late"
Pros: "Quick flight (made up for lost time), good pilot, smooth landing."
Cons: "- Delayed by 30 minutes or so at take off - Too cold in the cabin, no more blankets to provide - Overhead compartments were full so people with a luggage where asked to get back to the front of the plane to check in their luggage. Very inefficient process as there were still people trying to board at the same time - No in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "They should have let us know we would be diverted to Des Moines, and 2 hours Late to BMI before we got to the airport"
Cons: "I had problems with baggage and Allegiant staff at the airport were very unhelpful."
Pros: "Crew, check in and access"
Cons: "Seats are getting a bit tiny and the trays are small. Comfort and baggage prices are starting to drive the price out of competitiveness."
Pros: "Florida was amazing. The people were very friendly."
Cons: "Allegiant plays games with seating to try to milk more money from passengers."
Cons: "$50 bag fee for small carry on is punative."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Free beverages"
Pros: "We finally got to our destination"
Cons: "Uhh not boarding and then the pilot coming on and saying "whoops we have to deplane since the weather is bad." Really? Why not just delay boarding instead of putting everyone through that. Terrible experience"

Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable- they do not recline and the springs in the seat back pole into your back"
Pros: "I’m 5’10- tall for a woman but average height I’d say overall. I was so cramped in that seat that next time I will choose another airline to get more rom."

Pros: "On time and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Old plane,"
Pros: "The speed"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "The flight was over 5 hours late. We were supposed to leave at 6:06 PM and didn't leave until about 11:10 PM. We were supposed to get into Asheville at about 8:00 PM, but finally arrived about 1:00 AM. I fly this route frequently and Allegiant has a terrible problem with on-time flights and communications with passengers waiting for their flights. I am not certain what the problem is, but it is a significant issue with them. Captain was "bubbly" and upbeat without properly managing the passengers' expectations. Bad public relations."
Pros: "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."
Cons: "I flew to my "surprised" 50th bday party with family and to meet more family. The aircraft problems overheated engine, caused us to get out of the plane, move all luggages and wait foe a new plane that also had to be cooled off before reboarding. We were tired and hungry. Missed my bday with family. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."
Cons: "The flight had a lot of turbulence, but that's not their fault. I thought the pullout handled the situation well."
Pros: "My book"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "No leg room!"
Pros: "Direct flight much better not having to change planes."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight would be nice to have Wi-Fi on planes."
Pros: "Flight attendant Lisa was great."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite. One in particular expressed a great sense of humor throughout the flight and had a great rapport w/ passengers. Flight was on-time. Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "direct flight to where i wanted to go was great initial fare was very low, add-ons added up though."
Cons: "flight out was handled by Miami Air, lost the money i spent on a seat. everything costs extra, including printing a boarding pass. the app wouldn't let me check in so i had to go to the desk. i had to show the person that the app told me to go the desk then she printed the pass for free."

Pros: "Flight smooth"
Cons: "Extra costs"
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: "Excellent direct flight at good price"
Cons: "Flight 339 not listed on TV monitors at Boise airport"
Cons: "That you guys so tight that would not even offer free water....."

Pros: "Very accommodating cabin crew."
Cons: "Sitting in a little plane for 3 hours wasnt any fun,that and same reasons as above"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for almost an hour before takeoff. We actually sat so long that they did the safety demonstration twice. It was absurd. Mistakes happen, but my overall trip must have fallen in the unlucky category. I'll continue to use kayak, but I'll be reluctant to book United Airlines."
Pros: "This was one of the planes you are starting to hear about where the seats are spaced so close and are extremely narrow. This was redicolous for such a long flight. Hope the talked about law suit on this goes through this seating is unsafe. Plane we flew from Chicago to Grand Rapids was more comfortable and you could really see the difference in seat spacing and size."

Pros: "The person next to me"
Cons: "The fact that they over booked the flight. Couldn't give me a seat unless someone volunteered to give up their seat. Then last minute gave me the seat of someone who didn't show up. It really was uncomfortable and the worst feeling when you're potentially not going to be able to go home to see your family. Especially when you're going for 4 days & they wanted you to sit in the airport of an additionally 5 hours until the next flight."
