Pros: "The space we currently have."

Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours"

Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Was told they don’t feel they can do a good job of serving 48 passengers in Premium Select with 2 crew."
Cons: "Image recognition step slowed boarding down a lot. Food and amenities on Delta Premium Select seem to be getting worse"

Pros: "Great seat and always on time."

Cons: "Not enough room with the seats if someone reclines in front of you."

Pros: "Crew attentive and helpful"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Almost 3 hours delayed"

Cons: "After my flight was delayed for over 3 hrs - the counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. She felt it was appropriate for her to flick the customer service phone number in front of my teenage daughters. I would say avoid Delta!"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was great. Movies, games, moving map. Best I’ve ever seen in main cabin for free."
Cons: "The seating was too cramped. It’s extremely uncomfortable. Seems tighter both on knees and elbows."

Pros: "Crew was gr8, seats comfy and space between seats was great, great space for legs"
Cons: "The quality of the forks and knife, I had meat for dinner and the fork broke two times. Coffee needs to be a little more stronger. Keep it up!"

Cons: "No problems at all!"

Cons: "Everything was excellent."

Pros: "Early arrival. On time departure. Good selection of movies"

Cons: "Overall: pretty good."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and very friendly. The boarding process was calm and orderly. The seating was comfortable and very relaxing. The service was frequent and available. The entertainment was up to date and easy to access. The temperature was perfect. The flight was calm and fast. The overall experience was awesome."
Cons: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!"

Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Cons: "My bag was roughed up a bit. Protective belt was torn off & signs of light damage."

Pros: "Although we ended up being stuck on the plane for 2 hours prior to take off due to high volume, weather and as the pilot put it, "possible military activity" the crew kept us informed every step of the way. There was one flight attendant in particular who was so full of energy and made the unfortunate circumstances not so bad. She entertained us and kept us in the loop the entire time as did the pilots. It made the 2 hours not feel so bad which was appreciated."
Cons: "That we were delayed on the plane for two hours on a small plane but I know it was out of their control."

Pros: "Everything but the consistent delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay and it being the last flight out of LAX."

Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"

Cons: "Plane was Boarded and we sat for over an hour waiting on fuel. Minimizing the wait time on the plane should be considered prior to boarding. The practice of getting us on the plane to make us wait shhould be stopped. It will creat a much more relaxed and smooth delay if we are allowed to be in the terminal."

Pros: "Seats were very Comfortable"
Cons: "Rudeness of one of the crew members"

Cons: "The child behind me kicking my seat"

Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"

Pros: "We loved Jaimie and Dana with Delta, two super nice ladies working at check-in and bag drop counter. We were running late and a bit confused, both of the ladies helped us with the whole process, re-assured is that all will be well. They did so with a great genuine attitude. Thank you again Jamie and Dana :)))"
Cons: "More leg room wouldn’t hurt!"

Pros: "Loved how close the gates were"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"

Pros: "Loved the in-flight entwrtainment, choice of snacks, movable headrests and plug to charge electronics."

Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"

Pros: "Flight less than 2/3 full, lots of room for comfort. On time, no need to gate check carry on."
Cons: "nothing, it was great."

Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"

Pros: "Entertainment. Large overhead compartments. Clean."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane was too hot and made for a very uncomfortable flight. The individual air conditioner spewed out hot air. My kids and I took off as much clothing as possible and still remained hot. We were putting ice on our wrist to try to cool down! I sat with my hand against the window to capture some cool air. We were in Row 37. I am not sure if we were in a hot seat or if the other passengers experienced the same."

Pros: "Customer service was great"

Cons: "They change schedule day before we flight, the change schedule 2 time while were flighting"

Pros: "Could be among the best landings ever. I felt nothing as we touched down in Salt Lake!!!"

Pros: "Short flight so no food, drink or entertainment."

Cons: "Flights on time"

Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed take-off, one plane for hour or so."

Cons: "no food for Vegans. Like literally nothing besides a confused crew"

Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"

Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."

Pros: "The flight left on time and landed earlier than anticipated"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and very upright"

Pros: "Fast boarding, everyone nice."
Cons: "Wifi was yo and down the whole flight, about 20 times, so kids were not entertained."

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and had a lot of space to move around"
Cons: "The gentleman indicating on the loud speakers what zones will be loading first was very rude."

Cons: "You determined I would miss my connection when in fact I would land and have an hour. You rebooked us on a later flight. We made it in plenty of time and wouldnt even attempt to help. Your customer service is beyond reprehensible. With everything going on in the airline industry you would think airlines would at least attempt to please. The crew in the airplane was pleasant, that was a positive."

Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."

Pros: "Product was excellent, the whole experience was amazing."

Pros: "Great crew. Everything was on time. Loved it"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Communication is always my #1 complaint with Allegiant. They delay flights regularly but there’s never any additional information...they just send you a text or email saying your flight is delayed, never tell you why, but they want you at the gate at the regular time...so you sit there for hours with No further communication and the gate agents never come to the gate to let you know what’s going on or what to expect because corporate has gotten stingy with regard to compensating folks even when THEY are to blame for the delay. Two trips in a row, two weeks apart, they’ve done the same thing to us. I appreciate the low fares, but I’ve just about decided I’d rather pay more for good customer service because theirs just sucks."

Cons: "Covid travel. Had us board an hour before take off and the back half of the plane was 100% full. Every seat including middle seats. 15 min before take off they allowed passengers to take empty seats and spread out."

Cons: "Allegiant plays games with seating to try to milk more money from passengers."

Pros: "Crew nice. Seat okay"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Cheap and direct no frills"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, and the aisles are spacious"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary."

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

Pros: "Cost of reservation"
Cons: "Expensive extras (added up to more than a flight on another airline would have been)- carry-ons, in-flight snacks and drinks, etc."

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: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"

Pros: "The crew was good , plane was delayed and late for departure. Second flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours , I just can’t catch a break !!"
Cons: "I could not log onto the website and check my carryon bag , cost me $50 at check in. It would not recognize my number for the first flight. I’m a known traveler on Frontier so I did log in with them ."

Cons: "They could have not been 8hrs late"

Pros: "The crew was great. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I wish water was free. That is the only thing I don't like. I understand it's a cheap airline so everything cost extra, which is fine. But come on, water should be free."

Pros: "No The crew was not friendly at all"
Cons: "I honestly am angry that I was charged for things others where not.This is ridiculous"

Pros: "Nice pilot and crew."
Cons: "The warning about alcohol was a bit sarcastic, but I guess in today's world people who have acted out are the real culprits..."

Cons: "it was very hard to hear the stewardess"

Pros: "Efficient, direct flight, outstanding price, quick boarding, left late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Nothing. I did not try food or entertainment on this flight."

Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."

Pros: "The plane didnt crash :) Friendly attendants."
Cons: "NO WIFI. Flights are delayed often, what looked like a brand spanking new plane had the most uncomfortable seats ever, felt like sitting on wood in the exit row. You get what you pay for though."

Pros: "Great crew and online customer service..."
Cons: "1- Flight Behind Schedule 2- Live customer service agents are truly non-existent until 1.5hrs before ‘departure’"

Cons: "Squished and smelly but good value overall and good crew"

Pros: "Timing and ease of travel"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Early out and early in."

Cons: "The seats were a bit cramped but I suppose most are these days"

Pros: "It was great"

Cons: "Delays!!"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly, very polite unlike the United flights I have taken. I was told the space would be uncomfortable but it was absolutely fine for the short flight."
Cons: "No beverage service. Not even water is offered."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and smiled a lot. Non stop flight from easy and for me, convenient airports. I knew food cost extra so i brought my own."
Cons: "I knew my comfort would be cramped so that was expected. My only complaint was we couldn't understand the boarding instructions at the gate when they were calling zones. The microphone stunk! So because we couldn't understand,, people got in line who shouldn't have yet, and others didn't get in line that should have which seemed to really annoy some mouthy jerk in zone 5....who then had to turn around while boarding bc he forgot his phone, lol. Karma. So, that was my only entertainment and it was pretty great."

Pros: "Price"

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

Pros: "Smaller airports make travel easier, and more relaxed. No frills--to get even water on the flight you'll pay for a bottle. Personnel all tend to be friendly and helpful. With Allegiant I've learned to pack lightly and plan travel carefully. It's been worth it as I have been able to see friends and family more often. We even took an impromptu vacation this year when we found a great deal on airfare."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"

Pros: "The staff was nice, kind of, but also unprofessional at time."
Cons: "My flights were both fine but the flight from Fresno to Las Vegas was such a disaster! They switched planes so the majority of the people did not have a seat because the plane did not have any B seats. It would have been nice if ANYONE had made that announcement before we boarded to avoid confusion. Also, the fees are ridiculous! Your app is not user friendly at all! Who the hell charges for a carry on bag?! Are you kidding me?! The directions on the app made it sound like the $17 charge was for an additional carry on item, not the allowed one carry on item. So, when we went to check in and I was told I would have to pay $50 for my mother's carry on, it was livid! Also, are you serious with the $5 fee to print a boarding pass? I will NEVER fly with Allegiant Air again. That is absolutely unacceptable. I will say that the staff was pleasant but the airline is inept and inefficient. The reason I will never fly this airline again because of what a rip off the fees are. Allegiant Air, you should be ashamed of yourself."

Pros: "Love the ticket price, but charging $44 for a carry-on? C'mon man! Added charges that were worth it? Priority boarding: $15, Exit row seating: $25 Also be advised that all food & drink is for purchase and must be purchased with debit or credit card - absolutely no cash."

Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Both departing and return flights were delayed by just over 5 hours."

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

Pros: "Didn't mind paying for bags, seat, snacks, drinks,.....but a 10hour delay!!!! UNEXCEPTABLE Will NEVER use this airline again!!!"
Cons: "10hour delay!!! No weather problem.."

Cons: "We were moved gates a few times. Delayed a few times, finally on a plane and they deboard the whole thing. No one seemed too apologetic at all. Pretty much who cares, after spending money and being moved all over seeming like they cared would've been nice."

Cons: "Did not purchase any food and there was no entertainment offered"

Pros: "Allegiant is a great flying experience! A little bit of a wait at BLV,but that will be fixed once they get the other TSA checking completed. VLP was a smooth and easy experience!"
Cons: "We weren't given a menu in the Kayak App to choose seats or bags at purchase. Kayak needs to rectify this. It caused us to spend more money on our bags especially..."

Pros: "Their flights are always delayed. They have some pretty old flights and they always get broke before the take off and they have to do some maintenance before take off. Not going to fly again with them."
Cons: "Entire flight experience."

Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."

Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very respectful and courteous."
Cons: "Last 10 minutes of landing the plane was very very rough. A few people had to pull out the barf bags Lots of speeding up and slowing down. Ups and downs. It wasn't turbulence but it felt like it."

Pros: "We eventually got to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Everything. Spend an it make and book with someone else."

Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Plane was very clean and more spacious than any other airline coach seats. We departed on time and arrived 15 minutes early at our destination. Flight price was hundreds of dollars cheaper and the only airline which offered non-stop service from nyc to Knoxville, TN."
Cons: "Honestly i have no complaints."

Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
Cons: "First Allegiant flight, so I did not realize the 40 lb bag limit. Made for a last minute headache during checkin."

Pros: "I didn't like anything about them"
Cons: "They made me pay 100 dollars for two bags that would of fit under the seat"

Pros: "Staff was wonderful!!"
