Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The cleanliness of plane and it appeared new."
Cons: "The seating arragnement was next to a paranoid stranger instead of my spouse"
Cons: "First class lav was filthy."
Pros: "Everything was great and we had plenty of room. Attendants were nice. Flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "We paid for Premium upgrade, but needed a pair of headphones. They charged us for it which seemed petty given the Premium upgrade. I wish the audio for the entertainment system would MF have had closed captions."
Pros: "landed close to on time"
Cons: "seat is uncomfortable, very basic first class amenities."
Pros: "Every thing except food"
Cons: "A couple more vegetarian choices would have been better!"
Pros: "All smooth."
Cons: "All okay"
Pros: "more leg room in economy than other airlines, nice crew, seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "my flight over on Alaska was on a newer airplane so we all had screens - the way over we did not so I was expecting it on the way back"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "I was assigned a middle seat on a full flight. But the back 2 rows were nearly empty"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and simple. The crew nailed the flight. We were late leaving due to the incoming plane arriving late, but everyone caught up with a speedy boarding and making up some time in the air. The seats were comfortable and had decent leg room in the non-premium section."
Cons: "The plane was hot for the entire 3.5 hr flight. The flight attendant was complaining during the drink service and she said she was going to fix it, but apparently the issue couldn’t be remedied because it never changed. Other than that, the flight was pretty good. The plane didn’t have TVs, which is so nice when flying with a child, so it would have been great to have some in flight screens."
Cons: "Alaska has utterly ruined Virgin’s first class experience, and the food is garbage."
Cons: "Alaskan did away with the food & drinks on demand, part of which made virgin so special. Also internet did not work and documentation of it was wrong anyway, not good for work commuters. Flight was over a halfhour late taking off, however displays said ontime and sfo staff ignored the queue waiting to ask questions"
Pros: "The food and drinks were good once they got there. Entertainment was adequate."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the charger under the seat didn't work, the flight attendants said to just order food and drinks on the screen but it took at least 30 minutes for them to arrive."
Pros: "No problems noted."
Cons: "It was a crowded flight, with a lot of yappy people."
Pros: "Flight, once we boarded, went well. Traveled on Virgin plane. It was comfortable"
Cons: "It was delayed 2 hours. Never given reason. We did have free movies, that was nice"
Pros: "No one in the middle seat... friendly attentive staff. Clean plane."
Cons: "It was very nice no complaints"
Pros: "Plane was clean and the crew friendly"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Planes , Free movies , staff that appears they care"
Cons: "One of the first class seats had a molding come loose/fall off... NO COMPROMISE TO AIRCRAFT SAFETY! We were delayed cause a tech was called to fix it. Could have waited! 45min late."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "First time (and hopefully last) flying Alaskan. Boarding was ok, not the most efficient but it worked. Once aboard a predicted snow storm started (in Seattle so not the first time this has happened) and we had to de-ice. This process was exceptionally long, in fact so long that we had to add fuel for the trip. These two delays conveniently “timed out” the pilots, brilliant! Total delay was over 4 hours, all to be blamed on their ineptitude. Seems like the norm for airlines these days but this was blatant mismanagement."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I noticed my area wasn't clean. I found tissues and trash in one of the pockets. P"
Cons: "The free chat feature did not work on my iPad."
Pros: "The crew was fun and efficient."
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "Easy on and off for a holiday weekend. Entertainment system worked well..."
Cons: "Texting service wasn't always working, suspect it follows if the internet was working.... Austin baggage claim needs improvement... 30+ minites for bags to hit belt."
Pros: "I’m a tall guy and there was finally enough room for my legs on a plane"
Pros: "On time and uneventful. That's all I really want or expected. Alaska came through in flying colors (pun intended)."
Cons: "On my return flight it seemed that the attendants were trying to stop anyone other than the 19 or 20 people in first class from using the forward bathroom. On my flight out, the cabin was asked to "wait at row 6" for the bathroom to be free. That seemed reasonable, even though I was in row 6, and fair to ask. However, on my return flight they seemed to expect the entire rest of the plane to use the rear bathroom. That doesn't seem right."
Cons: "I should have been given a chance to pick my seat. I had to pay for an upgrade because I was give a seat in the middle of the last row"
Pros: "The entire process was fluid and easy. The price was great for a non stop flight between Austin and Seattle. I really appreciate that. Though I didn't take advantage of the in flight entertainment option of using a personal tablet, I thought that was an awesome idea. I'm interested in checking that out in the future. Staff was friendly and I didn't have to deal with any lines!"
Pros: "Time literally flew by. The staff were friendly, they're always on time or early, and they've never lost a bag."
Pros: "Got there safely and on time. The staff was very friendly, one stewardess interacted with everyone individually, thanking them for choosing Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "I'm tired of being crammed into small and uncomfortable seats. It seems comfort is only for people who can afford it. Headrests were non-existent. I'm not extraordinarily tall but the seat stopped just above my neck and felt like a hard, sharp surface rather than something soft and padded. And, of course, there's not enough leg room. Especially once the person in front of you leans back. I don't mean to sound petty but it felt like the airline was more worried about maximizing profits at the expense of their guest's comfort."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, no room to move. The air was not working in my row of seats so we were hot and uncomfortable the whole time."
Pros: "Smooth experience all around"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything!"
Pros: "They left and landed early! The staff was pleasant and very helpful."
Pros: "never booking with alaska airlines again"
Cons: "Arranged for handicap assistance once we landed, but Austin airport did not have it available. The flight/flight crew was great!"
Pros: "Direct flight to my final destination. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I was assigned seats that didn't recline on an overnight flight both ways. Boo! Those downgraded seats need to be labeled clearly, disclosed before boarding, and given at a discount. Super disappointed!!"
Pros: "wifi phone charging"
Cons: "I arrived later than most, since my connecting flight was tight. Unfortunately, other passengers had let their young daughter take my seat and didn't seem to understand that I wanted to sit by a window (having never flown to the northwest, I wanted to see the view). Didn't want to seem like a heartless adult, so I sat in the aisle seat in another row. not good! constantly jostled by people going to and from the bathroom. and the kid closed the window anyways! I saw people take someone else's seat on the way to Portland, but the original person asked them to move. Guess it's a common thing"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and flight was on time."
Cons: "As I went to board my flight to return to Austin my seat was changed for "operational purposes" from a window to seat B elsewhere. I hate to complain and at the point we were boarding and I simply wanted to return home. However I have motion sickness typically and really hate being stuck in seat B neither on the isle or window as this really does not assist with feeling nauseated. Furthermore the seat I was placed in did not recline so I was unable to relax at all once we were airborne."
Pros: "The flight was quiet. No loud talkers was able to sleep."
Cons: "Too many people with more than one carry on. I was unable to store my bag above my seat."
Pros: "The crew were all great."
Cons: "I had a window seat and the window itself looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time. It was not only dirty but it was gross. Smears of what appeared to be a dried up liquid or something. Lastly, there were smeared boogers in several different spots around the window. I didn't want to touch anything. Seriously the nastiest flight I've been on."
Pros: "No need to print boarding pass is nice because most customers don't have a printer at home. Great idea using an app on customers' smart devices. Charging ports is great plus."
Cons: "Lack of free services to kill time during a long flight. No free music and lack of free video. I was surprised Samsung Note 7 wasn't banned during my flight because of the battery issue."
Cons: "No closed captions --"
Cons: "YOU CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR OVERWEIGHT PACKAGE."
Pros: "Friendly staff, and the flight was pretty empty so I got a whole row to myself."
Pros: "Everything was great, gave food 3 stars but only because it was just snacks. Seats were comfortable and really liked the charging ports, better accessibility than under the seat."
Cons: "Didn't like that it felt like a free for all when boarding. Could have been better if it was more sectionalized, that is, allowing smaller section of rows to board at a time."
Cons: "There was not enough room for my small sized bag to fit in the overhead. Crew members seemed nice, but then would go to the back and laugh and say something rude about a passenger. This was a late night 3 hour flight and no entertainment was offered. It was freezing during the entire flight and no blanket was available. Overall, I was not pleased with my experience with Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "My flight was inexpensive and convenient. None of the travel stress I hear about. Everything about the travel during my trip was on the money!"
Pros: "Great crew. Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Should add weather/radar to the flight tracker"
Cons: "Snacks, and drinks"
Pros: "Social distanced seating"
Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"
Cons: "The plane itself and seating was filthy, some unknown substance fell on me from the vent above, there was a bunch of crumbs in the seat buckle that fell out all over my lap when I fastened it. I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Delta check in was HORRIBLE! I was charged for a bag check in and had to take my bag through security and they threw away my cologne and razors."
Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"
Cons: "They could improve the boarding process."
Pros: "Seats were comfy movie was great"
Pros: "Lots of in flightentertainment options"
Cons: "4 hour delay on take-off and despite that my luggage didn't make it onto the flight."
Pros: "The plane had more leg room and felt less confined because of higher ceilings."
Cons: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."
Pros: "Excellent support from all the Delta associaties"
Pros: "excellant movies"
Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"
Pros: "Good service. And good features. Enough space in seats in first class."

Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"
Pros: "Flying first class and the attendants were wonderful"
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Coldest flight I’ve ever taken. Not sure why I paid $60 to fly in comfort when I had to endure the arctic temperatures. Free WiFi never worked once either."

Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."
Cons: "Legroom was poor, Im 6' tall and my knees were rubbing the seat in front. Flight was full so no alternate."

Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."

Cons: "Can't change the weather. Flight was delayed a bit but they were very informative as they found out info."
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Cons: "Not enough entertainment choices"
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
Cons: "The economy seating was very tight on this plane. I'm just 5'8", and it felt incredibly tight. I think I had 2" of leg room. I cannot imagine being much taller."
Pros: "Took care of us, gave us snacks and drinks, and pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Plane almost caught up in flames. Gas was filled through the entire plane. Had a big scare."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane."
Cons: "Bring back beverage service when you can!"
Cons: "They could at least announce boarding group 4..."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Cons: "More beverages"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "That I finally reached my destination."
Cons: "I & all passengers would have received accurate, timely information related to the 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they announced it was because they weren’t sure there was enough tread on the tire to land which didn’t give anyone a great feeling. Crew was probably on their last shift and just rude."
Pros: "Travel time was great"
Pros: "Free checked bag. Comfy seats back in row 27."
Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."
Pros: "The window seat of this plane is so closely placed to the window that you can hardly sit straight up and down. Food is non existent and one drink offered in 4.5 hours is bad service"
Cons: "Virtually everything"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew on full flight."
Cons: "Late take off"
Pros: "The crew handled the flight delay well."
Cons: "Having to wait in Chicago due to mechanical plane problems was a bunner!"
Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Most was as expected."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had to wait 5 and a half hours in the airport and not being compensated by the airline, who for some reason penalize anyone of their passagers if they are late or want to change a flight. I was also late for a meeting"
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "entertainment monitor for my seat did not work at all. also on all flights: I was not aware one needed one's own headphones to hear entertainment."

Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."

Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."
Cons: "Sat on the runway and at the jetway at LAX for over an hour because they couldn’t locate a ground crew to get everyone off the plane. Changed gates to try to help. What airline can’t get their customers off the plane?"
Pros: "Crew, check in and access"
Cons: "Seats are getting a bit tiny and the trays are small. Comfort and baggage prices are starting to drive the price out of competitiveness."
Pros: "We had a really nice crew."
Cons: "It is Allegiant Air. Not much more needs to be said."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Offer at least water at no charge."
Pros: "The boarding wasn’t smooth, there were 3 women at the podium listing zones and it was very mumbled and low, quite hard to hear despite the small area dedicated to Allegiant passengers."
Cons: "The women at the podium listing flights could have been friendlier and more customer service oriented... there was a lot of mumbling into the speaker for boarding ... and the person kept giggling into the mic. Once past boarding, everything was great !"
Pros: "Great fares even for last minute booking."
Cons: "Services and comfort as expected for the price."
Pros: "Definitely the price. Boarding process was pretty quick. Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Left a little late, but still arrived on time, so that was okay. Seats aren't the most comfortable, but that's expected. Was still able to get a little nap in."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Still in Reno. Aircraft broke down"
Pros: "All went well. No real disappointments!"
Cons: "A little cramped but not terrible. Would like to know kayak fee up front before booking and all hidden charges!"
Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"
Cons: "The airports restaurants closed and security shut down as well. We were prisoners in the airport with only a vending machine. Unbelievable. Believe the Allegiant Air stories from 60 Minutes. The stories are true."
Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"
Pros: "It was exceervice"
Pros: "Flight was ontime and smooth. No issues boarding or debarking."
Cons: "Cheap plastic "mass transit train" style seats. Poor legroom. Borderline exorbitant fees for baggage and carry-on. Also weight on checked luggage was only 40lbs per piece while industry standard is 50lbs. Makes it difficult to share one suitcase between 2 people to save on baggage "fees"."
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: "Friendly Crew. Staff did expedite our checking bags to make our flight when we asked about our flight that started boarding early and made sure our bags made the flight. Excellent pilots, trip went seamless from wheels up to wheels down."
Cons: "Boarding started 30 minutes earlier than first notified as, Long lines to check bags."
Pros: "Front seat leg room"
Cons: "No WIFI."
Pros: "I’m 5’10- tall for a woman but average height I’d say overall. I was so cramped in that seat that next time I will choose another airline to get more rom."

Pros: "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..."
Cons: "Sent email out asking for volunteers to reschedule her flight. Got on the plane our seats were not the same as selected. And we paid more to select our seats. Friend of ours seat was switched also and instead of him sitting next to his wife he sat next to a person who did not have an assigned seat he was extremely large and he was hanging off The seat into the aisle I noticed an empty seat and had to ask the stewardess if he could switch seats instead of the stewardess offering on her own. The flight out was delayed approximately one hour various mechanics coming on and off plane until finally we were able to leave."
Pros: "Boarding at the new Austin South terminal was a breeze!"
Cons: "It's ridiculous to make passengers keep their personal items on the floor when most of the overhead lockers are empty. Ridiculous and dangerous."
Cons: "No compliment"
Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."
Pros: "Cost of tickets, airport locations-and more convenient travel utilizing smaller airports."
Cons: "Baggage fees are outrageous, no complimentary amenities or refreshments. Flight attendants were rude in asking parties to return to assigned seats, while there were several completely open rows towards the back, (no obvious or explained reason aside from "assigned ticket seats" that they should remain empty. Families or companions could have traveled together- seemed unnecessary to prevent this, only gain noticed was Flight attendants satisfaction at denying seat relocation."
Cons: "We were moved gates a few times. Delayed a few times, finally on a plane and they deboard the whole thing. No one seemed too apologetic at all. Pretty much who cares, after spending money and being moved all over seeming like they cared would've been nice."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "They offered a direct flight from Cincinnati to Austin. The price was good, even though they charge for carry on."
Cons: "They land at the Austin airport, kind of. Once we landed they took us to a Remote terminal which required waiting for a bus to fill up and then take you back to the actual airport. There was no quick way for the bus to return and it has to drive for 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main airport. I took 1 complete hour from when I landed to when I got in my car in lot D."
Pros: "other airline seats are concave, forcing my back in to a painful posture. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs, so I'm not the normal body; but I just can't imagine who finds concave comfortable. Thank you Allegiant for a chair with a more-flat back."
Cons: "I was surprised with the carryon fee and wondered if I would have to pay fees to use the toilet. I didn't use it, so I don't know."
Pros: "While I enjoy the fact that Allegiant offers direct flights to Laredo at an affordable price, the planes really need to be updated."
Cons: "We really disliked that we boarded the plane and just before taking off they made us get off again and never did confirm the real reason. The planes really need better maintenance since this is the second time in two weeks we have to change planes due to problems."
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: "It's convenient and inexpensive for one of my regular destinations. Though, over the years, I've experienced a few cranky employees at the Punta Gorda location. Just the opposite in Asheville, where friendly was apparently invented."
Pros: "Well, it was a somewhat inexpensive flight out of a convenient terminal."
Cons: "I say somewhat cheap, because by the time they ala carte everything, it's not so cheap anymore. As in no longer cheap enough to justify the bare bones service. The flight attendants are basically candy salespeople. I typically need help putting things in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant actually told me it wasn't her job. That indeed may be the airline's bad policy, but she also thought her way of expressing it was appropriate, which it is not. That has to come straight from the top. Also, what kinda janky airline doesn't serve complementary water. Probably the biggest deal though was that my flight was delayed for 2 hours both ways due to a maintenance issue. I know air travel is fairly safe, but given the track record of both Allegiant and Airbus, I was a little worried during the flights. Even though this particular route is convenient for me, I'm going to avoid Allegiant."
Pros: "The idea of a more competitive airfare. New South terminal in Austin is nice. Parking is cheaper. Food truck and outdoor seating are nice."
Cons: "No wifi. No entertainment options. You have to pay for snacks and regular drinks- even water."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight experience was good, with the exception of my overpriced hummus and crackers."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and archaic. Once we were all finally seated they came through 3 times with a paper trying to figure out who wasn't on board. As we taxied towards the runway a lady who felt dizzy coming on board threw up. The crew was obviously panicked and unorganized. We taxied back to our gate and waited for LA Fire for. to escort the ill lady off and clean the area. While waiting to taxi out the second time the flight attended, Tyeesha, was very rude to an elderly gent. He was seated in an exit row and she didn't think him capable. The lady on the aisle of my row volunteered to switch and Tyeesha' s response was a sharp, "Do you want to pay the higher price too?" When the lady next to me said she would gladly pay Tyeesha announced loudly that this discussion was between the two of them and everyone else needed to mind their own business. The lady offering to switch was really embarrassed, as was the elderly gent. Someone else was made to switch with him. They looked disgruntled too. In the air all the flight attendants were sharp and very direct. There were no please or thank you's used. Trash was collected silently and mostly with pointing. The armrest to my left had five flavors of chewed gum stuck to the side of it. My lap tray had grey and yellow sticky stuff on it and I chose to hold my food rather than let the two touch. The floors were untidy. The only reason I will ever fly Allegiant again is if I have no other options. It is 60 minutes closer to my house than SLC and I will be making the drive from now on."
Pros: "Low cost, great service, arrived 20 min early"
Cons: "Seats were kinda tight but I'm sort of used to that"
Cons: "I paid more to be upfront so I could get off plane faster but there was no room in overhead because people had put their carry on and personal items. I also didn't like that drinks weren't complimentary, especially beings that it was a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."

Pros: "got moved up to first class since I'm premier Access. silver"
Cons: "Mechanical delay on this leg left us in a hot plane on a hot Texas tarmac. We were initially told it would take 15-20 minutes but this incrementally grew to 1-1/2 hours. Even when we were told that we were pushing away from the gate, we didn't move for another 15 minutes. At least tell the truth. Only water offered. Observed flight attendant moving cups along baggage bins.... Don't know if these were the ones he then served water in."

Really wish flight attendants would get more involved in these situations. Sigh."
