6 hour flight no food. No TVs

Pros: "That the plane was newer"
Cons: "The service and entertainment options... and the WiFi was terrible"
Cons: "Airplane temperature. It was warm and humid."
Cons: "Freezing in biz class and NO extra blankets. Existing ones too short. No nibbles service either. Pathetic."
Cons: "I had never flown Norwegian Air before. It was a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "The inflight system was hard to use. The rented iPads had to be given back almost an hour before the end of the flight."
Pros: "Awesome crew. Service was well above expectations. Thanks"
Cons: "Wi fi wasn’t working I didn’t understand the media and it didn’t work No screen"
Pros: "Everything was superb! The airline I prefer did a great job! The seats, the food selections, the staff - everything!"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was just perfect!"
Pros: "Crew was so helpful and nice!"
Cons: "Better entertainment options and food options"
Pros: "The plane was clean and the ticket was cheap."
Cons: "Boarding process was needlessly complicated — just assign everybody a seat beforehand. Gate agents were rude. Seats are very uncomfortable and it’s difficult to sleep on red eyes. It should be prohibited to fly 737s cross-country."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More room"
Pros: "The crew was very happy and welcoming."
Cons: "We were late and I missed my flight. I was told Flt 452 from LAX to JFK is notoriously late. Also, there could have been more updates about our delayed arrival."
Pros: "I just really like the customer experience with Alaska. I dislike flying, but Alaska makes things as painless as possible."
Cons: "I don't think anything could've been better, it's not possible to be comfortable in coach, but we all already know that."
Cons: "You pay first class a looot of money But your seat can not even recline properly"
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour and 43 minutes. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Should have let me cancel, or gave me credit for another flight, my schedule changers and I asked 2 months in advance, they could care less"
Pros: "yes, yes,yes!"
Cons: "nothing really..."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was really great. A large number of excellent movies"
Cons: "Seats felt even more narrow than I am used to, and area under seat seemed smaller. Could barely fit my backpack underneath."
Pros: "Crew very helpful especially considering I had a child with me. Boarding process was very easy. Departure process was very easy."
Cons: "Food and seating could have been better considering the price for first class."
Pros: "Boarded on time and got to the destination early. Never flows Alaskan Airlines before but will definitely remember the great experience"
Cons: "Nothing. All great"
Pros: "Fast boarding, nice crew, good flight!"
Cons: "I know it was a late night flight but I expected more than just a little cookie and 1 drink for 5 hours and a half. The seats were fine but could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was ‘amazing’!!!"
Pros: "Crew was great, seat was ok"
Cons: "Everything was groovy"
Pros: "completely not flight was 11:45 they fly on 12:15 after stopping Multiple times on ramp also even flight land at 8:18 Supposed to be at 7:55 because of uber driver charge me waiting fee and in flight i ask water so she said i’ll give you in air and in air she didn’t came for 1:30 for offer water"
Cons: "crew should be better and flight should be on time"
Pros: "Nice crew, intermittent information by crew, Plane ended up leaving ontime despite being delayed initially"
Cons: "Had to go outside via ramps onto tarmac to take a bus to the plane which involved waiting on bus for 25/30 minutes before it moved! Then off bus and up ramp onto plane - not most comfortable process! So it wouldve been better simply to board plane at the gate, and no delay- plane initially delayed"
Pros: "Crew was so accommodating! Excellent service and personality. Smooth easy flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun. Seats were roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom stall. Told crew who tried to correct it but it was broken. Boo..."
Pros: "Clean plane and pleasant crew and announcements."
Cons: "The complimentary snack were dry sugar biscuits."
Pros: "A real cute friendly boy was in the seat next to me. It was easy to sleep through the night on the red eye flight."
Cons: "I passed out the whole time so I didn’t get to flirt as much as I would have liked to."
Pros: "Love Alaska Airlines"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, uneventful. Standard issue, the passengers were on their own to stow bags, get seated...even as crew was requesting that bags be turned on their sides like a book to provide as much room as possible. Then please go through the cabin and assist. Otherwise it was fine because no one has anything approaching expectations these days."
Cons: "This plane was older, smaller and less comfortable than the one we flew from JFK to SFO. For 5 plus hours it wasn’t the most inviting. At landing several people appeared desperate to deplane, perhaps to make connections but no one assisted them. There were also passengers from the rear of the plane up and in the aisle immediately which just causes tension and friction for those still seated. That’s when I want to and did say something to certain individuals and made them wait. But this is the flight crew’s responsibility, not the passenger’s."
Pros: "Ample leg room (I’m 5’9, could be tight for someone 6” and taller)"
Cons: "No headphones provided for inflight entertainment. I have an iPhone 8 so I only have blue tooth headphones and couldn’t watch the movies displayed."
Pros: "I love that you can charge your phone in-flight! It was a red eye, so I wasn’t trying to watch movies or anything, but battery life is always a concern when you want to use your phone. There’s no free WiFi but you can text, which is cool."
Cons: "Generally, we all know coach is just uncomfortable. This was made worse by the fact that the flight attendants NEVER STOPPED WORKING THE AISLES. On a red eye, things usually get quiet after an initial drink service. And they even said it was going to, but that was a lie. I was in an aisle seat and got knocked by drink carts rolling past on at least 3 occasions, and they would talk without even trying to stay quiet. ALL NIGHT LONG. I definitely didn’t sleep, which is usually pretty easy for me. I fly a lot of red eyes and have gotten used to getting to sleep on the plane, but this was by far the worst experience I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Very pleasant and attentive employees."
Cons: "Booked at last minute so have middle seats."
Pros: "They have been on time for most flights"
Cons: "They never have enough room for my carry on even though I pack light. Also I always board in group D no matter if I have an aisle seat in the back or a window in the front."
Pros: "Flight attendants were upbeat and attentive. They came around frequently with food and drink carts."
Cons: "My wife and I had our seats changed (not requested or offered) to “sit together”. Turns out this was in the last row, and between not having a reclining seat, a generally rough flight, and the constant line to the bathrooms it was particularly unpleasant. I should have looked more carefully at the seat assignments and they should have been more up front!"
Pros: "Check in, quick boarding"
Cons: "First class food is terrible, first class seats are disgusting, dirty and broken. The Virgin planes are showing their age. No one is cleaning or repairing anything. The service is not what it used to be. They removed live TV and the movie selection is at least a year old. Sad sad state of affairs. Virgin was my favorite airline."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave at 10pm. We all boarded only to be told that some ground crew vehicle ran into the cargo door and scratched it so badly it had to be reported. The report must be filled out and sent to Seattle for review. We were told by the air crew this would take a few more minutes. It took over almost an hour and a half. Screaming babies and a FULL plane. We finally changed planes to the other end of the Terminal. I got no sleep and missed a very special Labor Day Holiday with my daughter because I am sleeping now. I dont understand how your own ground crew can damage your plane and it take so long for you to decide to change planes AFTER BOARDING A FULL PLANE!?!?"
Pros: "Staff was nice - they did what they could"
Cons: "Six hour delay. Unreal."
Pros: "I liked the price of my ticket. I liked the app. I felt like the plane was clean and very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn’t like that both my flights were over booked so boarding took a lot longer then I expected. I didn’t like that the on board ordering system offers free earbuds, yet the flight attendant said they did not have any. When I boarded my return fligh, the flight attendant that was supposed to be creating us was scrolling through her phone didn’t even make eye contact. When I was getting off of the plane. That same flight attendant was sitting in a first class seat scrolling through her phone again, she did look up to thank us though. Overall the plane was nice, but the I wasn’t disappointed with the flight attendants service"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "New York airports are always delaying landing and getting to the gate by at least 30 mins. Nothing to do with the airline I assume, but still quite frustrating to do detours and spend extra 30/40 mins in air or taxiing."
Cons: "There were no headphones available on the flight, the seatbelt signs were half working, half not, and when I tried to use my own headphones- the jack in my seat was not operable. On the Alaska flight on the way out, the seat was broken and I couldn’t recline for the whole 7 hour flight. It just seems as though there is a repair issue with Alaska/virgin airplanes."
Cons: "No USB port to fit my ear buds so 6 hours with no audio/video To cold and was declined any blanket froze!!! Unfriendly stewardess both directions who didn’t care to collect trash:SMILE or care I was cold with no movie"
Pros: "I like people who work for Alaska they try they best are very professional and polite."
Cons: "I travel from Hawai to New York with a laid over in San Francisco In the airplane around 6 hrs fly the offer only one time drinks. Went I check my luggage in HNL they tell me will go all the way to JFK airport , went I was in San Francisco they call me to pick up luggage because they don’t sent to New York. Went we arrive to San Francisco airport they delay fly for 3 hrs I have a hotel in NY to sleep for 5 hrs before I pick up rental car and start to drive to my next trip . I lost my hotel reservation, again only one time they offer drinks and food was not good in airplane ."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind. Would fly it again."
Cons: "Plane small and crowded. Food is a little pricey and they need to offer more than just 2 cookies."
Pros: "love direct flight from Omaha to Seattle. timely in getting us off. Crew very responsive. coming through several times to offer us water which is great for a 3 hour flight. thanks."
Cons: "we both bought food. Mine was great. his was mediocre. through no fault of Alaska airlines. we were in row with 3 seats. the other gentleman had a very high weight. He struggled to get his seatbelt to close. Not sure what you can do to fix that. Just a growing USA problem. Where he needed a seat and a half."
Pros: "I enjoyed what felt like more room, especially since the flight was relatively empty and the lovely crew who seemed to be in very good spirits."
Cons: "I wish that there was food included in the price of the ticket and that there would be screens for viewing on the back of seats like with other companies. I find this to be a nice perk for flights longer than 3 hours."
Pros: "There was lots of room The flight was not full"
Cons: "No hot chocolate as one of the free beverages:("

LGA Terminal A is terrible. Not NEARLY enough bathrooms (huge line) and very inadequate seating in small crowded waiting room.

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work well, tv had to be reset"
Pros: "Lots of room. Great crew. We left early. We arrived early."
Cons: "Food ok."
Pros: "This time within the last couple months the trip a lot better."
Cons: "Not taking over 5 hours to get to my destination."
Cons: "Entertainment System wasn’t working properly. Movies were down as were many of the channels. Although a disappointment, JetBlue is still amazing!"
Cons: "There was a woman with a small dog who did not have a carrier and was being difficult- at boarding and on website it should have been made clear what the regulations were regarding pets"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "The entertainment system was missing at my seat. It was also down for the entire plane. The crew missed my row for drinks."
Pros: "Comfort and food"
Cons: "The delays before entering the airplane so that we aren’t stuck"
Pros: "Staff was amazing loved every minute of flight"
Pros: "Loved the movie and tv show selections available"
Cons: "Direct TV did not work for me. Really wanted to watch the AFC championship football game but I couldnt because direct tv wasnt working."
Pros: "I boarded fast"
Cons: "flight attendant was moddy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes but the bigger issue is that after we boarded the crew told us that some paperwork needed to be signed but we didn’t leave the gate until 40 minutes later. The crew including the pilot never informed us as to what was going. Terrible communication. Also, in regard to myself, I was sitting in an Exit Row and the flight attendant came over to ask unless individually if we were willing and able to handle our responsibilities. Before each of us was ready to answer he said OK, turned around and left. What would have happened if we had a problem and someone in the Exit Rows had a concern?"
Pros: "Free wine , free coffee, quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Wi fi and the tv made the time pass quick , seats were big , flight was quick"
Pros: "The seating space was just right, and thanks for the complimentary Sprite."
Cons: "The wifi/ flyfi did not work. The directv screen kept going offline. The complementary cookies ran out"
Pros: "Good snacks, was switched to an “even more space” seat"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification, got at email with delay notification but no information that the gate was moved from 5 to 25 until I went up to ask the desk staff since my departure wasn’t showing on the screen. Very loud engine for some reason. No USB a chargers on plane is old school"
Pros: "My wife were satisfied with everything."
Cons: "No reason to say anything, we were grateful to be there."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, on time and efficient. The crew was friendly and they moved quickly in the cabin so not to disturb people sleeping on such an early flight."
Cons: "Flight was way delayed. :("
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "We were delayed due to poor weather on takeoff and on landing due to airport traffic."
Cons: "Not acceptable for plane to be 100 minutes for no real reason"
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "By the time we boarded in row 8 all overhead bins were full thru row 16. Made getting off more difficult when we had to get our carryons"
Pros: "Excellente"
Cons: "Staff, legroom bterra chips"
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "The people on the flight not so much. Barking dogs and screaming babies."
Pros: "Quick service no complaints."
Cons: "Tv service was weird."
Cons: "A woman was boarding the plane with two babies and clearly struggling to get to the back of the plane. When she could not handle it anymore she asked one of the flight attendants to help her. She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."
Pros: "I like the new collaborative coffee option at the gate and the get-your-own-snacks option upon boarding."
Pros: "Everything was on-time and we arrived early with no problems. Wasn't expecting even snacks/drinks on a 45 minute flight, but they served them. Crew was even more friendly and helpful than usual."
Cons: "E-mailed me advertising a free drink on BOS-->LGA flights, but I didn't see that."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and respectful even when some passengers were rude."
Cons: "Paying for headphones."
Cons: "The boarding pass machine was broken, almost missed my flight. The customer services was rude."
Pros: "Free beer!"
Cons: "Nothing, it was excellent!"
Cons: "Onboarding crew was a bit rude and rushing everyone. Forcing people to check in bags even though there was still space in the overhead bins."
Cons: "My overhead light didn’t work. My seat mates tv didn’t work. We were in 13 A & C"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed...they inform passengers of the delay, then set back to the original time. Horrible. This airline stinks."
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "Efficient boarding process. Flight Attendants happy to be on board with you."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 80 mins and then we had to taxi for an additional 45 mins. We were supposed to arrive at 9:40, we did not get off the flight until 11:45pm."
Pros: "Polite crew. Flight on time."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Smell in the air"
Pros: "the atmosphere, appearance of lga, the wheelchair service attendants-kind, courteous and attentive."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good wifi most of the flight. Usual JetBlue professionalism."
Cons: "Not JetBlue's fault but we had to wait on the runway about 45 minutes because of weather issues up north. Otherwise a great flight."
Cons: "My flight was delay more than hour it wasn't pleasing experience"
Pros: "the food options and staff"
Cons: "i reserved two seats together and when we checked in we were sitting apart."
Pros: "Overhead space"
Cons: "departure was very late same thing happen coming back they were late,but the most upsetting was that they lie insulting our inteligent."
Pros: "miss the flight, plane was at the tarmic, door was not close, supperson supervisor was in the plane but gate was close, person at the gate did not try to contect the supervisor, thats not helpful at all"
Cons: "JetBlue went from telling me that my bags were delayed in Boston to now telling me that they are lost. I'm so disappointed in this airline because I've always held them with such great regard."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours, then a seats were very cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Cons: "They sent my luggage to a completely different state! Now I have to wait till it gets to LGA and then they’ll send it to me."
Pros: "We got home safely! The crew was great and generally cheerful despite less than great conditions."
Cons: "Lots of delays due to weather, which I get. The plane was small and old and stuffy with too close seats."
Pros: "We arrived eventually."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours. Payed extra for an earlier flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate was inconvenient b/c jt dissuades you from taking a bathroom break before the flight. They can't prefer that you go on the plane."
Pros: "Quick Boarding Awesome staff"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Just better food"
Pros: "The ease of travel that Delta efforts me"
Cons: "Easier status earnings"
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "Accurate arrival time"
Pros: "Actual flight was great!"
Cons: "Delays were awful, and the ground crew was unhelpful in helping people find earlier alternatives to the delayed flight."
Pros: "I was rerouted through Detroit after it was apparent I would miss my connecting flight. The flight was good and I have no complaints."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Efficiency"
Cons: "they did not serve food in my section at all."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Checking in was easy, the overall flight was quiet and quick and on time"
Cons: "Nothing to report here"
Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Cons: "I understand Mother Nature causes issues tkayakhat no one can control but when I'm receiving updates from the 3rd party travel app that isn't the airline before receiving any information directly from the airline via the gate agent or Deltas travel app and the gate agent not being able to verify the 3rd party travel app something is wrong."
Pros: "They had available seats on an earlier flight and I was able to get home super quick! My checked bag also made it which was great!"
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"
Pros: "EXcellent"
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "The speediness if the crew to get the flight boarded and in the air, entire process form boarding to unboarding was about an hour."
Cons: "Plane was loud and very stuffy, but the flight being so shore made it managable, overall good flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delta cancelled direct flight and we ended up standby on two flights, getting into NYC much later. Not nice."
Pros: "Delta's free in-flight wi-fi for entertainment (movies, tv, music) on your own device is a big plus. Not so easy to find (there's sparse information in their magazine or seat-back brochure), but once you find it there's a wealth of options."
Pros: "An excellent flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats small"
Cons: "A tv on plane"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "delayed almost 5 hours due to “air traffic,” flight had plenty of room and they did not offer any upgrades"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "There crew was not welcoming nor understanding of the passengers' frustrations caused by the delays. There was no air-conditioning on the flight, no air circulation to speak of. No food was served due to turbulence or so we were told."
Pros: "no"
Cons: "on time departure"
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Pros: "Everything. The entertainment was ok. I think a movie would be better than the shows"
Cons: "if I would’ve been in first :)"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The seats could be bigger."
Cons: "Everything was fine, crew was great, but the wifi entertainment system is a joke. Its nice to allow passengers to connect and watch movies or shows, however, when trying to watch a movie it constantly buffers. More buffering then watching, to the point of just stopping and skipping it all together."
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "Plane too cold hard to sleep, no blankets or pillows"
Cons: "late cold plane"
Pros: "Wi-Fi was adequate"
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, but it still felt cramped. The tray was crooked and I had no priority boarding."
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "Time consuming during check in. Was not allowed to do the pre check in, so arrived to airport, waited around 20 minutes to check in, including my luggage. After that, had to wait around 45 minutes to drop my suitcase. After that, process was good and efficient. Plane left on time LIMA to Miami, and then Miami to NYC."
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Cons: "Boarded the plane and had to wait on the runway for almost 3 hours after being delayed at the gate. Absolutely horrible with no compensation for our time whatsoever."
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Arrived to the airport well ahead of time and encountered lines so long that we were not able to make our flight. Only 2 attendants working and so many people had to be rebooked we didn't get another flight for 3 days. Did I mention I was traveling with a baby?"
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service and late departures."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and as I have a disability they gave me a chair with moreegroom and closer to the exit."
Cons: "It took a long time before they offered beverages, we were in the air for more than 1.5 hours before they came by to offer drinks"
Pros: "Also quick and painless flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants where kind of rude."
Cons: "I paid extra money to sit in the front of the plane due to traveling with my dog... when I looked at my boarding pass I realized I was sitting in the last row of the plane ... the cabin was booked and they could not move my seat! Really upsetting and frustrating!"
Pros: "On time departure/early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding g process a bit chaotic"
Cons: "The crew was late arriving to the gate which delayed boarding and then the plane had an electrical problem that could not be quickly fixed so had to deplane, go to another gate and board another plane. We were an hour and a half late leaving."
Pros: "the flight was on time coming and going"
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "Very friendly. Quick & semi efficient."
Cons: "Need bigger chairs for bigger people."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "Refer to above. Both flights were horrible."
Cons: "Everyone excellent"
Pros: "boarding was in time, and comfort."
Cons: "comfort was very good"
Cons: "Not flying."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No refreshments"

Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable, but the price is right."
Cons: "No help with the Coronavirus bs. Customer service blows"
Pros: "Punta Gorda was not over-busy. So the hassle level of the pre--flight experience was way down from the norm nowadays. The flight was on time, and only mostly full, not crowded."
Cons: "Not even water free infliight is a tad chintzy. Allegiant is not responsible for this, but the seat belt sign was on most of the time. I counld wish for better weather enroute. On arrival at ALB there was not video display announcing the belt numbers fror different arriving flights. One had to just drift from belt to belt"
Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Cons: "The seats are very hard."
Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."
Cons: "Pathetic rationale for delay"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Be on time"
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 the best on any flight I have been on. Love their jokes."
Cons: "Unfriendly Flight attendants"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "The plane, the crew..."
Cons: "Seats wider"
Pros: "The plane didnt crash :) Friendly attendants."

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

Cons: "Paying extra for EVERYTHING"
Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food choices are very limited"
Pros: "The entire crew we're so accommodating and Robin was hilarious, made the hassle of traveling enjoyable and entertaining."

Pros: "The service is not extravagant but completely adequate. Also, it is very consistent every time I fly them."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Lands in South Terminal of Austin’s airport, meaning you have to shuttle 8 miles to get to main terminal or long term parking. Unbelievable! Very inconvenient..."
Pros: "Flight attendants did the best they could; just a bad situation. It happens."
Cons: "Said it was a radio problem, but we were delayed, told we were leaving, delayed, de-planed, changed planes and finally got in nearly four hour late."
Pros: "We got the brand new AB 320 on both flights! Nice plane!"
Cons: "Lightning delayed boarding and departure for hours. Not Allegiant's fault but it happened."
Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Pros: "No frills inexprnsive"
Cons: "No services"
Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "Price, service"
Pros: "Quick boarding with priority access Friendly staff"
Cons: "Unclear boarding instructions. Both flights roundtrip were delayed about an hour. Wasn't advised of seat changes and reasons why. Mobile passes were unavailable due to a system issue gate attendants had to check manually. Bring own snacks or eat before flight and provide your own entertainment. Seats not reclining are uncomfortable. Not suitable for someone with back issues. First flight was uncomfortably cold return flight was uncomfortably hot."
Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"
Pros: "Arrived an hour before flight. Check in took 25 min and tsa 30 minutes. Tried to go through expedite line but agent refused to let me even though flight was leaving in 30 minutes. I have received better treatment in new York airports than here in Myrtle Beach. Who would have thought. There were 3 others that missed the flight. Why would they not just let's be expedited?"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Was an hour and half late"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Having then bill me for each little thing."
Pros: "Bring your own snacks & entertainment you will enjoy your flight. Make sure you eat before your flight. Download the Allegiant Air app to your cell phone you will have a Mobile Boarding pass no need to print use your phone."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Bought two tickets, I had to pay more to sit with my wife. Seats don't recline. Endless emails before the flight telling me to pay for my carry ons."
Pros: "The direct flight"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"
Cons: "I didn't like the schedule time change. Very inconvenient missed some of my planned festivities that were prepaid."
