Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "I dislike cramped, crowded seating. Alaska could reconfigure and lose a row or two to allow for more leg room and customer comfort. I wouldn't fly Alaska if I had another choice."
Cons: "Flight got delayed"
Pros: "Smooth easy flight, nice new plane and friendly crew"
Pros: "Very sweet crew"
Cons: "Nothing. It was perfect"
Pros: "The customer service rep was polite"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before claiming ‘weather’. It was fine flying weather at my origin, destination, and layover airports and forecast to remain so. All other carriers were flying. The re-booked me not on a later flight, but on the next day with not one, but now two layovers."

Cons: "There was a long delay to defrost the wings, it took a long time for the team that does the defrosting to get to the plane."
Pros: "Great crew and flight service. Quick and friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "Small planes are rarely comfortable, it's less of a reflection on Alaska Air and more on smaller aircraft. No in flight entertainment, less expected on small craft."
Pros: "Flight was late leaving Reno. No room at the terminal in Seattle so they used busses to transport us to the terminal, but instead of us entering the airline terminal we went all the way to the main terminal area. 3 trains later I missed my connection"
Cons: "All of the above"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight - crew was really nice."
Cons: "Nothing - it was all good"
Cons: "Sketchiest landing ever. And the crew definitely didn’t communicate that our plane was having problems..."
Pros: "Great crew! On time professional Food average. Excellent pitch for the Alaska Mileage plan and credit card"
Cons: "for a 1 hour flight, you could add more frequent services from Reno to SJC. This will help remove traffic from the roads during long weekend and encourage more travel to Reno/Tahoe area from those of us who don’t prefer driving in traffic"
Pros: "I liked nothing. TSA is a sad partner in the “Expidite your Line Wait for Cash” racketeering scam. They make Hundreds miss their flights because of lengthy wait times, then leave you only a couple options; Pay or miss your flight. Absolutely sickening."

Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice and informed us about the cool deals they have for ski season in Oregon and Washington. I will definitely be flying Alaska a lot more!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional. These small planes are never exceedingly comfortable, but we had a very pleasant flying experience despite that unalterable fact!"

Cons: "New seats not as comfortable as the older seats."
Pros: "Not being woke up"

Pros: "The weather in Reno. I didn't however make it to Seattle."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I arrived at the airport at 11:15 AM for a noon flight and by the time I got to the front of the line was told that 11:20 AM was the cut off time for that flight. I do not like the fact that the ticket agent Was quite rude and uncaring and unhelpful. The Epitome of poor customer service for a terrible policy. she almost seemed to gloat over the fact that she could not or would not help me join my family for a dinner in Seattle."
Pros: "Cabin was nice and warm during flight. Crew were kind and easy to talk to. Planes ran on time too. Well done."
Cons: "The fact that it's owned and operated by Horizon,which meant smaller planes were cut (via a corporate choice), off from having wi-fi. Seriously? Why only give a few planes wifi access and then proceed to market your flights including wifi?? It's rather deceptive. :( This is a let down and ethically kind of stinky!"
Pros: "The staff and everyone was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight is noisy cause the plane is smaller."
Cons: "My fought was canceled with no costumer service answeringvtge phone and I had to re book my next ticket"
Cons: "We picked our seats for both round trip flights well in advance and we ended up being assigned less desirable seating on both flights. On the first flight we we ended up in the very last row next to a lavatory and on the second flight we had seats where the backs did not recline also. Go figure!"
Cons: "Really? Flight from San Jose to Reno delayed 1 1/2 hours. Return flight delayed 1 hour, then canceled altogether. Both flights delayed or canceled due to mechanical problems. Yes, you did provide a $250 credit, but I lost a day's pay from work. Luckily, my family has a place in Truckee . Felt sorry for so many of the passengers whose travel plans were greatly changed by Alaska's mechanical problems."
Pros: "Alaska is efficient and friendly . The plane was new and clean. The plane left SF on time and landed lightly --perfect flying ."
Cons: "Because of the wind in Palm Springs, the flight crew wasn't able to do a real drink service. I look forward to a glass of cheap Alaska red wine on my Friday afternoon flights!"
Cons: "Not enough room in the cabin,"
Cons: "You failed to inform me that Alaska no longer offered the original flight from Eugene to Portland, so I had to buy another flight the next day and ended up being late for a family gathering for thanksgiving. The Eugene airport was extremely helpful but your service has been horrendous. I will no longer book through a 3rd party. I know this is the wrong flight I'm commenting on but your poor service equates to my poor feedback."
Cons: "If United can serve more than orange juice or water, so can you"
Pros: "the ground and flight crew made every effort to be sure that I made my connection (along with 5 others). They were very pleasant and accommodating"
Pros: "The pilot introduced himself and kept us updated on the weather and turbulent."
Pros: "I was able to board early due to my premium status on American. The aircraft, a Boeing 737 was relatively new."
Cons: "The flight was over half an hour late, and we were told the airline was servicing the cabin while we waited at the gate to board. When I got on board, I was the first to arrive at my row and there was so much trash on the floor, in the seats, and in the seat pockets in front of me that I gathered what I could carry to the restroom to dispose of it before sitting down. There was still tons left. When I alerted the flight attendant, she just shrugged."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Late start 20min"
Pros: "Flight departed on time."
Cons: "No charging station at my seat No media device given to watch movies or TV Flight crew was WELL seasoned, was not personable and didn't seem to care much about service (even in first class) Aircraft was OLD The food "choice" was dried out chicken thighs and some ravioli First Class Flight attendant spent more time in the first class restroom than the passengers did"

Smooth trip. No problems no delays and that's great.

Onboard crew was great, but I was unable to check in on my phone so after my connecting flight I checked in right at the gate, at that time they assigned me a seat but didn’t tell me that I wasn’t allowed a carry on bag and needed to check it due to my boarding group. While boarding was when I was informed I needed to check my bag at which time they informed me I needed to pay $65 since I didn’t check it at check in, I informed them that I had a connection and didn’t check in regularly at LAX and was unaware I needed to check my bag, at that time they changed the charge to $35 but I was still disappointed I needed to pay anything considering it was a small carry on bag that I wasn’t told I needed to check before hand.

Cons: "Internet could be faster."
Pros: "JetBlue crew was awesome"
Cons: "this time around the whole experience was great"

Pros: "love jet blue"
Pros: "Great legroom. Got in a bit early which was fantastic. Appreciated a mid-flight update from the pilot."
Cons: "Earphone jack did not work so I couldn’t listen to any movies or shows — shouldn’t sell a seat on a 5 hour flight if entertainment isn’t working. Plane also felt like it could have been cleaner."

Pros: "They were very communicative and snacks were free"

Pros: "Great service and amenities!!!"

Cons: "Sleeping in longer"
Pros: "The colors"
Cons: "THERE ARE ONLY 1-2 STAFF MEMEBRS AT TERMINAL 5 JFK (busiest ailier in the world) for 309+ passengers an hour that’s not enough. I booked with you guys and paid extra money for worthless travels, but no. Never again with JetBlue"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight and overcrowded"
Pros: "I slept a lot, there is more space than most planes"
Cons: "We were delayed by 3 hours, the flight had so much turbulence throughout, no water was passed out during our delay, in fact, it took way too long for beverages. When I boarded and settled in, a flight attendant was crushing Ice for about 30 minutes and the flight crew in the back was really loud during the flight when most of us were trying to sleep."
Cons: "My main comment is that the wi-fi didn't work for all passengers. One of the reasons I flew this airline was because they promise reliable wi-fi on the flight and despite multiple attempts to troubleshoot, it never worked."

Cons: "Gate changed not enough notice missed flight"
Pros: "I like jetblue, everything is excellent,."

Cons: "Only gripe was the seatbelt wasn’t very long. Barely crossed my waist."
Pros: "The pilot was on it, time for some new planes."
Cons: "The plane left the gate 35 min late, went to take off the pilot saw a water leak returned to the gate. Finally fixed than went to leave the gate the 2nd time and there was another malfunction. 2 hours later finally took off. When we landed at lax we had to travel across the runway for quite awhile to our gate where we had to wait another 45 min for the other plane to leave before we could park."
Pros: "Thank you for the leg room! While all the other airlines are packing people on the plane like sardines, thank you for treating your customers, especially the economy customers like human beings. I can’t emphasize enough how much that will affect my travel choice and I am not even a person of big built."
Cons: "The head rest did not have the bending capability so the head can’t rest comfortably to either side while sleeping."
Pros: "Unpleasant. I requested some water, it arrived far too late. I stated I had diarrhea. The staff stated “Take your seat.” I stated I was under a doctors care for some injuries, I needed to be able to stretch my hip.” Once again the staff stated “take your seat.” The staff was rude, condescending, seemed annoyed and angry with having to do their job. I declare under penalty of perjury the formentioned is true and correct under the laws of the state of California. Karen Schuber"

Pros: "DirectTV and snacks."

Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Long delay in cold terminal"
Pros: "Quick security check."
Cons: "Temperature to hot in main cabin during flight."
Pros: "They made a potentially difficult departure from JFK in a snowstorm super easy. And they couldn't be more helpful."
Cons: "Man, the regular seats are just too small."
Cons: "I arrived 2 hours early. Security lines were long. I had to run to the gate as they announced that the plane doors were closing 20 minutes before takeoff."
Pros: "my wife was unable to use her ticket, so i had a seat between me and and the next passenger. very comfortable. Plus your plane had more leg room and complimentary television."

Pros: "Jet Blue is always a great experience due in great part to your staff! I was running late. They accommodated. The flight was late but the checkin crew was stellar and kept us informed and in a great mood. Then the flight crew took it from there and they were, as always, true professionals. Thank you!"
Pros: "Read some reviews regarding tardiness but our flights out of LAX and return from NY (go see US Open Tennis Championship) were either on time or early. On-board entertainment was great since we can watch LIVE matches from US Open on the return trip. However, you have to bring your own ear phone/head set otherwise it will cost some $$. Free WIFI too"
Pros: "They got us on quickly, and the flight arrived quicker than expected."
Cons: "The line for security was poorly managed, tried talking to multiple employees and they all ignored me, and on the plane there was no wifi, and I tried to flag down a flight attendant for water but they never came to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Cons: "They don't have free meal services and they ran out of the meals you can purchase, we weren't pleased"
Pros: "The staff, the service and the overall flight experience!!! Best flight ever1"
Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great!"
Pros: "The free wifi, snacks and service was awesome."
Cons: "I didn't like the food selection on the menu."
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."
Cons: "It was fabulous as always! Thank you. I love Delta!"
Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly.

Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."

Pros: "Delta never ceases to amaze me. The flight was perfect!"
Cons: "There’s nothing I can think of."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."

Pros: "Delta is professional and safe. The best fares ever."
Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."
Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."
Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent and so friendly and down to earth."
Cons: "The seats are very hard but I find this with all the airlines now"
Cons: "When I was transferred to Delta's website to book, the date was reset to 6 months in the future. It happened to be the same Monday the 26th so that's why I didn't notice. Delta refused to refund my money. This was a terrible experience and I plan not to use Kayak or Delta again!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Pros: "Good service and food"
Cons: "My non-reclining first class seat was a disappointment on this long flight. The flight was full, so there was no re-seating option."
Cons: "Delayed"
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: "Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food variety for lactose intolerant. Crew was bare able."
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."

The flights are all packed full and the overhead bins are full of things like purses, stuffed animals, and other lightweight bags instead of putting them under the seat. This makes it hard to get actual suitcases up there. The new hook thing for setting your viewing device on is a nice touch though.

Quick boarding was great. Seat cushions are hard and painful. Did not eat anything. Disappointed with the nonexistent masking policy. No snack options caused allergy poisoning. Bottled water would not spread the virus so easily

No wi fi and carry on had yo be checked not enough room

Yet another delayed American Airlines flight (the one coming over was delayed too.). I understand these things happen. My issue is that the flight crew does a lousy job of keeping passengers informed of what is going on with the delays. They wait until 15 minutes after your scheduled departure to tell you why you're still sitting at the gate. Then they tell you it will only be another 5 minutes. After 20 more minutes they decide to tell you why you haven't moved, and it should only be 5 MORE minutes. Really, American, if you don't have any idea how long the delay really might be, don't just pull numbers out of the air. People prefer honesty to BS.

Delayed. Flight attendants were on a international flight

The crew was great. We were in first class in 2D and 2F. The man in front of us coughed continually with a very deep cough. We were very concerned that he may have been infected and we plan to be tested for Covid-19. As a Condition of flying we support airlines requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test within the past 72 hours. Otherwise airlines may find a segment of the population refusing to fly.

Cons: "Lots of bags had to be checked from the passengers already on the plane. Wifi kept going during the super bowl so we couldn’t watch everything."
Cons: "I always have preferred American Airlines but they seem to have constant problems with the aircraft these days. This causes delays and missed connections. This in turn causes no breakfast or lunch or dinner opportunities. I travel with snacks in my bag at all times now just in case so I won’t get sick for lack of nourishment or water! This last flight I missed my connection altogether and had to take a shuttle home, then catch a ride back to the airport to pick up my luggage and then get my car to drive home. It was 4 hours past my expected time home."
Cons: "Was not allowed to get on slightly early with a car seat and a 3 year old to get situated in the seats, though on every other flight we have been allowed to. There was a delay that caused us to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Cons: "No money for baggage registred"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Gate check of carry-on luggage was nice. The connecting flight from DFW to FLL was on time and the boarding process was very smoothly executed by the gate agent. Well done!!"
Cons: "The flight out of RNO early in the morning was chaotic. One of the kiosks was down and the line to self-check was long and moved very slowly because there was only one agent behind the self-check baggage drop. She did well keeping up but there was a long line of unhappy customers due to the long wait. No snack was offered but I did get a glass of water. Not enough overhead storage for the carry-on bags because passengers get the luggage check tag but brought the carry-on onboard anyway."
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Poor ratings for food Is result of not eating any food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "I think things would run so much smoother if the plane was loaded from the back to the front. That way you don't have to wait as long for people to put things in the overhead and then sit down."
Pros: "Flight box waste of money for sure. The middle seat was vacant and it was fantastic. We travelbwith a guide dog."
Cons: "The boxed food"
Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"
Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Cons: "It was 3 hours late"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Cons: "Thanks for the cheap flight. Oh wait, still over $200 and they passed out iceless water. Why can't they give coffee as an option or heaven forbid, anything other than iceless water?"
Pros: "Crew did the best they could considering the situation."
Cons: "There were multiple delays, leaving half my flight with missed connections in Phoenix."
Pros: "the crew was pleasant and efficient The landing was really smooth compared to my trip in the opposite direction."
Cons: "paying extra for a small seat was really frustrating"
Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Pros: "."
Cons: "."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, great crew, lots of food & drink options, great screens with excellent selection of movies & games."
Cons: "Long flight. We did not realize that we needed to claim baggage and then re-check it at Japan Airlines for a domestic flight. Airport personnel were understanding and helpful, so no crisis."
Pros: "Pleasant flight for the hour ride. Not bumpy at all."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice. I dont' like to fly and the take off was so rough, I spent the whole flight in the bathroom. The flight attendant gave me ginger ale and pretzels and let me sit in the back so i didn't have to go back and forth. The other flight attendant had aroma therapy that helped a lot but i was just too freaked out. Those two made the flight as nice as possible."
Cons: "Very rough take off but that is mother nature not the air line :) Took off almost an hour late. LAX scheduled too many flight to land at the same time, Had to wait on the runway in Reno."
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Paying for extra legroom, delays, being told the flight may be canceled if we didn't leave by a certain time, no beverage service"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight to to 3 delays."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "It was a standard boarding. The standard ride. I have nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "Boarding was easy & seamless"
Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Yes +50"
Cons: "The previous crew did not do some kind of check so leaving Reno was delayed which left almost no time to get to my connecting flight. No one seemed very happy at all."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Cons: "Broken down seat cushion ."
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: "Delays caused a little stress but all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Late arrival to DCA."
Pros: "Flight from Dallas to Boston was comfortable and pilot made up for lost time in previous flight"
Cons: "Flight leaving Reno was 40 minutes late due to a plane not coming in which is just a part of flying but after the plane arrived we had to wait an additional 20 minutes to board because the flight attendants got off the plane to do whatever in the airport and then the same ones came back 15-20 minutes later and got on the plane. I should not almost miss the flight so the staff can get off the plane to stretch their legs or get a coffee."

It was great for the money, smooth flight and comfortable enough

The flight was delayed 3 hours with little info given to the passengers

One flight attendant was rude to several customers. She was much older than the other three. They were great. I’m a senior citizen so this is not a knock on old people. Not a smile the entire flight. She even chastised a fellow flight attendant. She should not be working in the public eye and representing Allegiant Air

On time departure and arrival.

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

Late, dirty and uncomfortable.

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours. No honest apology"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Should offer free water at least."
Pros: "Not bad for the price, convenience beats all"
Cons: "First class"
Cons: "$50 bag fee for small carry on is punative."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "I like I can pick seats."
Cons: "Ppl putting their carry on in overhead bins nor in their row so when zone 6 (at the front of the plane) gets on, there’s no room in your overhead bin space. Crew should say to passengers to put their luggage in their area, not front of the plane."
Pros: "The price was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours."
Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"
Cons: "Bad turbulence throughout the entire flight. Hot temperature during majority of flight."
Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."
Pros: "Great fares even for last minute booking."
Cons: "Services and comfort as expected for the price."
Cons: "Good flight."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Earlier delay notification"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still in Reno. Aircraft broke down"
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Runs late but no updated to arrival board, the attendant was rude when asked what time they thought the plane might be leaving."
Pros: "the staff was nice."
Cons: "the soda can was 2$ and for a rum and coke 20$, the plane was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Short flight and pilot was able to explain delay"
Cons: "Long delay due to many planes in front of us, no offer of water only drinks we have to pay for"
Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"
Pros: "."
Cons: "Late departure without any explanation. TSA really under staffed."
Pros: "I have never experienced this before. You stand in line to get a tag for your bag. Then you stand in line to check your bag. Then you stand in a Disney style HUGE line just to get to the escalator to take you to the second floor so you can go through security. Thank goodness for TSA precheck! That line was long but not very long like the other line."
Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats were very tight. Have to pay for water."
Pros: "Airport and onboard crew were nice."
Cons: "It was myself, my wife, and our 18 month old son. The trip was a complete disaster. The first delay was from 12 noon to 7:30 pm because the plane was unavailable. We left the airport and returned at 6 pm for the 7:30 pm departure. The plane was "available." We checked our bags, found our way to the gate, and eventually boarded "ontime." Instead of taking off, however, we sat on board the plane at the gate for 2 hours as work was being done. The work was first called "maintenance," then "a small error code." The captain teased us by saying "folks, just a few more minutes and we should be departing." The crew nourished us with a dixie sized cups of water and Chex mix. Then finally the airline gave up and deplaned everyone. Once deplaned, it was explained to us that they couldn't clear the error code, so they couldn't use that plane. But there was another plane coming from Las Vegas to use so that we could expect a departure around 12 midnight. 12 midnight rolls around. Nothing. 12:30 am. 1 am. Finally, a plane arrives. But then the airline holds us up yet again - turns out we can't depart after all because the arriving airport shuts down at 2 am. Gee, they didn't know that before making us wait another 3 hours??? Now they're offering a refund to anybody who wants one, as well as a hotel for the night and the promise of a flight at 2:30 pm the following day. At this point, many of us are looking up alternative flights to Eugene and even Portland. A $1,000 extra for us. We're not sure whether we can trust Allegiant to have an actual plane ready to go the next day. And we're too tired at that point to even ask why the next flight would be at 2:30 pm rather than first thing in the morning. So finally we line up to get a hotel voucher and find our way to the hotel. It takes over an hour to checkin at the hotel because it's the middle of the night and 150 people just showed up to checkin. We finally get to our room at about 3:30 am. I'm amazed at how well our toddler held up sitting on an airplane for 2 hours, sitting at the airport for about 6 hours, and waiting to fall asleep all night. We eventually made it back to the airport the following afternoon and, praise the lord, made it to our destination. Allegiant - NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "No Delays All went smooth & arrived early!"
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: "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: "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: "Free bags for military. Friendly, efficient, on time, price. It was all good."
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent flight."
Pros: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours then canceled"
Pros: "Flights were all on time"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Charge for carry on and in flight snacks and drinks (sodas,juices,water)"
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"
Cons: "My return flight was rescheduled for a day later."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Paying for my carry on bag."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "You have to pay extra for everything."
Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"
Cons: "The flight was late and we were not given updates until the time we should have been taking off."
Pros: "Excellent flight! Down side no wi fi connection and no Internet, you must buy all food and drink but hey for cost of the trip worth it!"
Cons: "No internet or wifi"
Pros: "Cost Flight Crew Deplane option from Front and rear"
Cons: "Only 2 flights per week Delayed flights All the "additional" charges $40 to check a bag $30 to bring a bag on board $12 for priority $12+ to book a seat in advance The method for Boarding that put every on in zones 2 and 3 in line before letting people who paid for priority get on board $22 for water"
