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"

Cons: "Sitting in back of plane - but that's on me for scheduling a flight last minute"

Pros: "Sonoma county airport is the easiest airport to travel through with the friendliest TSA and airport employees. I got there 40min before my flight where I checked my baggage, went through security, and had 15min to spare before boarding."
Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."

Pros: "Sandee was an outstanding Flight Attendant. In between the safe take-off and landing, Sandee made my wife and I feel like Family. We were in First Class, and it was worth every penny with Sandee In our section. She had a great sense of humor, was very responsive to our needs, and made the trip home just as pleasurable as our Resort Vacation."
Cons: "There could have been more pens available for the Immigration/Customs forms. I seem to forget to bring my own sharpened pencils, ballpoint pens, awls, screwdrivers, ice-picks, and quills when I fly. Sandee loaned me hers, but there were several people scrambling to complete the forms."

Pros: "The crew and cleanliness was great!"
Cons: "No usb sockets to charge my phone"

Pros: "Boarding went fast and smooth"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Seat comfort and leg room!!!! FANTASTIC! Pleasant crew. Made super time... landed 20 minutes ahead of schedule. Always a good thing"

Cons: "Delayed by 30-40 mins"

Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Leg room entertainment and coffee"
Cons: "Three hour wait on plane due to maintenance issue. Pilot kept stating he thought it would be resolved in 15-20 minute. We were given water but not offered anything else. We were not given option to get off the plane nor given any compensation or good will gesture like a 25 Voucher etc. I was disappointed withJet Blue."

Pros: "Leg room!!"

Pros: "The flight was almost on time, and it was okay."
Cons: "Not only the tv screens didn't work for some of the passengers (including everyone in our row), they kept showing "noise" and there was no way to turn them off. I'd say 20% of the screens were malfunctioning and the remote control in the arm rest to my left kept coming out of the seat. It was quite unsettling / uncomfortable."

Cons: "We arrived later for almost 2 hours"

Pros: "I liked that Jet Blue has a really big selection for viewing/listening."
Cons: "The crew announced WI-FI was broken, and then the movie I was watching, cut out."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours and I was clear that the flight would be late so a notice beforehand would have helped me to stay at home and come to the airport later rather than sitting around the waiting area when all stores are closed already."

Pros: "This was my best flight ever"

Cons: "The flight attendants we're very nice. Liked the drink and snacks. Seats were nice."

Pros: "I was feeling a bit ill and asked to move to an empty row to be able to lie down, and the flight attendants accommodated my request and were very kind to me. I was then able to nap and felt better after. I'm grateful for their hospitality!"

Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "People were being inconsiderate towards one another and staff did not care to diffuse the situations."

Cons: "crew very unfriemdly"

Pros: "They were so friendly...let me gate check my bag. Plenty of snacks."

Pros: "I asked for help to check in luggage as my flight was leaving soon and I was essentially just told look for any son that stays check in without being directed. After 3 kiosks said put pf service and the lines were packed, when I asked for help again the jet blue advocate said “I can’t help you, you just missed the flight"
Cons: "I missed flight had to call customer service and pay even More money to get to my destination. I’ve been a very loyal jet blue customer both domestic and international and this quite frankly putna bad taste in my mouth"

Cons: "No priority boarding for credit card holders"

Cons: "We sat towards rear of the airplane and the flight attendants were very loudly talking during the entire flight whenever they were in the galley."

Pros: "The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines."
Cons: "The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of leg room. Very friendly staff even though the flight was maxed out the flight attendants handle every situation professionally."
Cons: "This flight was delayed as usual. The entertainment was out of date and hard to use. Was not sure if I would be charged for the headset or pillow so I opted not to get them."

Pros: "Love the extra space in the seats."

Pros: "Wonderful service, easy boarding and the flight crew was excellent. Love their flexible baggage rules. Flying with two kids and they made it so easy, a true pleasure! We will definitely be flying with them again."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Dirty tray and seat area."

Cons: "TSA held me up with a 30 minute bag check so I arrived for an 11:30 AM flight at 11:16 AM. I was told that because I was a minute late they wouldn't let me on even though the plane was still in the runway and connected to the terminal. I asked to speak to a supervisor and the agent disappeared for 10 minutes while the plane took off. I then went to go speak to a customer service agent who wouldn't even look at me while I spoke. She actually started listening to and talking with another agent while I was talking to her. Then when I was finished, she started arguing with me until another agent said "he's not worth it." JetBlue just lost my business."

Pros: "Great customer service and attentive staff. I would definitely ride Jetblue again."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The night kit"

Pros: "JetBlue sent me two updates announcing that my flight was delayed, so I adjusted plans accordingly. Then, JetBlue restored my original flight time with no updates, so I missed my flight."

Pros: "Great trip."

Pros: "Flight attendants were super nice."
Cons: "Long delay while waiting for equipment."

Pros: "Everyone was very helpful..."

Cons: "A few factors led to a 6 hour delay. Not necessarily Jet Blue's fault but it was certainly a frustrating day of travel"

Pros: "I loved that they boarded from the back of the plane first. It is so much more efficient. They also deplaned from both the front and the back which also made getting off the plane quicker. Lots of legroom. Looks like they have comp wifi."
Cons: "1 flight attendant was a little grumpy. The plane could be a little cleaner."

Cons: "The mask mandate needs to be voluntary ADA violation"

Cons: "The man sitting next to me was coughing and not covering his mouth. I am especially concerned given the recent Coronavirus outbreak."

Pros: "Customer service as always"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants. I appreciate the complimentary bag check for my carry-on bag to the destination."

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. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."

Pros: "The crew."

Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"

Pros: "Everything! I appreciate that the ticketing agent helped me get an earlier flight and I appreciated the gate agent making sure I had a good seat! I love Delta!"
Cons: "Nothing honestly"

Pros: "Yes, . Amazing crew Seat was comfortable."

Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"

Cons: "4 hour delay"

Pros: "The free upgrade"

Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"

Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."

Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "Late arrival"

Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"

Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"

Pros: "Gate agent inATL helped an elderly man get on board early at my suggestion.Proud of our female pilot from ATL-PHF"
Cons: "I'm so used to the nice screens with free tv games and flight tracker and really missed that on this trip. I'm glad I decided not to pay to upgrade to comfort + this trip for the first time in a long time. I was able to use my tablet for flight tracker but could only see the map and not the stats"

Pros: "Food and entertainment not applicable"

Cons: "Seats very tight!"

Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"

Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"

Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"

Pros: "Crew was amazing , one patient was getting sick while flight and always to flight stewards where always outside bathroom to help her. And crew was still able to service whole plane of 200 passengers."
Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."

Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait. There's no Delta lounge, so you're stuck trying to find something to eat and somewhere to sit well before our flight. The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."

Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly."
Cons: "Being next to lavatory."

Pros: "Entertainment did not work even though it was a quick flight we sat at the gate for a while which turned the flight into hour and a half."

Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

Pros: "N A"
Cons: "I did not receive acknowledgment that I had cancelled the flight... and I still received 'updates' to give uncertainty to the status."

Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"

Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"

Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."

Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"

Cons: "Due to waiting so long on the tarmac, I almost missed my ground connection. Also, two persons with impaired mobility were deplaned while nearly all the remaining passengers waited. It has been my experience in the past that those with impaired mobility are assisted in deplaning AFTER the other passengers have deplaned. This only makes sense. Also, baggage handling was slow compared with my previous experiences. Seemed to be a hard landing."

Pros: "Service from the crew."
Cons: "Quality and comfort of seats. Quality of food. The TV screen was from the 80s."

Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."

Pros: "This was a first! The flight attendant (sorry I didn't catch his name) was very attentive and assisted us in first class as needed. He actually addressed us by our name and that made me feel like I was not just a passenger!"

Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"

Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Pros: "Overall great experience"

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."

Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Cons: "No money for baggage registred"

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: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

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: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Cons: "Missed my connecting flight to to 3 delays."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

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: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."

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: "Polite and professional"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"

Cons: "Broken down seat cushion ."

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."

Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."

Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."

Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."

Pros: "Comfortable newer plane More overhead cargo room"
Cons: "Not enough time between groups - people standing around blocked terminal Extremely full flight"

Pros: "Flight crew was very helpful ."
Cons: "The crews at the airports are extremely rude and impatient."

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "I love that they fly out of smaller airports. I feel like the crew is kind and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable but luckily most of the flights are not too long."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I liked the price and that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Everyone was moved around a lot to try to social distance so I was closer to more people than I would have been on a regular flight."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. The aisle was nice and wide which makes walking to seats easier"
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, the flight was smooth and my husband and I got a full row to ourselves."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable, no entertainment."

Cons: "A place to out my bottle of water"

Pros: "Crew and plane ride."
Cons: "The seats hurt us."

Cons: "$50 bag fee for small carry on is punative."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

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."

Cons: "Unfriendly Flight attendants"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Still in Reno. Aircraft broke down"

Pros: "Ticket prices are always the best. Even though The flight was delayed by 30 minutes we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 30 minutes but we were only 15 minutes later into the terminal"

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."

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

Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."

Cons: "This was the first flight if the day and the plane floors were fithly. It look as though they have not been vacuumed in a few days!!!"

Cons: "Delayed flight"

Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "There was no one working at the counter when we arrived at the airport and there was already a sizable line. We waited about 10 minutes before anyone showed up to assist customers. Not sure what was up with that. Very uncomfortable seats and crowded seating on plane which is typical these days everything else went fine. Flight left and arrived on time."

Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"

Pros: "Made it home safely."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac 2.5 hrs. Then plane delayed 10 hours. Then waited on tarmac 2 more hours. Horrible first experience flying with Allegiant."

Pros: "Great airport for getting to Florida. Good prices"

Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food choices are very limited"

Cons: "Seats are hard"

Cons: "So many charges at every step. $5 for boarding passes?"

Cons: "they charged me more money because i need alleges air . ap"

Cons: "The ground crew got something stuck in the snow and we can't get off the plane because of that."

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

Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"

Cons: "15 minutes waiting for luggage—still none out."

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."

Cons: "I understand that Allegiant has a pricing structure to implement, but forcing passengers to keep personal items between their feet when most of the overhead compartments were empty was just insulting and ridiculous - not to mention dangerous. In the event of extreme turbulence (or worse), all those personal items would be flying around the cabin."

Pros: "Great flight. On time. Easy on. Easy off. And amazing fares."
Cons: "Everything great"

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

Pros: "Snacks were good but we had to pay for them."

Pros: "Very cheap ticket Non stop flight to HTS with excellent service. Eat before the flight. It is a short flight but if needed bring your snack... airports near big cities..."

Pros: "Great cost. Boarding and crew were seamless and pleasant."
Cons: "As with all airlines, it has all the comfort of a cattle car. No drink service - even water cost you money."

Cons: "Four hour delay and charging for on flight drinks including water"

Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"

Pros: "The crew and pilot"
Cons: "Entertainment."

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

Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."
Cons: "They would tell me the problem with the plane."

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, quick cart service, fast flying"
Cons: "Seats are so small I was window seat with two men who were jammed up so uncomfortably in their seats I felt bad. I was cramped cause they had no choice but to spill over in my seat. I understand safety is important but unless the plane is in middle of taking off or landing, or horrible turbulence anyone should be able to use the bathroom. We had landed and were just sitting and waiting on a gate to open. My fellow travler happened to be on her period n was told No she could not use the bathroom. After the 3rd time of her being sent back I got up with her and a tampon in hand n told the staff they had no choice she was using that bathroom. Of course they had to phone the captain and ask for permission which he ok it, but seriously , what are we supposed to do just sit in our blood. That was not cool."

Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"

Pros: "Great price ."
Cons: "Landing in Austin and having to walk down a wet slippery ramp and then across the tarmac in a thunderstorm ... got VERY wet . How about a cover ?"

Pros: "Very good flight crew. Cheerful. Nicely suggested a free adult beverage since we had the Allegiant credit card."
Cons: "Was an hour and half late"

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."
