Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew unfriendly, sometimes rude"
Cons: "Very dissatisfied with boarding and told we had to pay for our luggage but noone else did .I had prepaid for 1 incase I brought big luggage but I brought carry ones. So I was charged 100..but everyone else's was larger"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly"
Cons: "A little confusion about departure gate"
Pros: "The captain was very good, and we arrived early to our destination. We had to hold back before landing, due to smaller planes landing, so the captain pointed out some areas along our path! Loved it! The flight was smooth."
Cons: "We had to be in the boarding area an hour before the flight was scheduled to leave. However, because of the way that the flights are scheduled, people were still deplaning from the previous flight for 25 minutes after our gate arrival time."

Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"

Cons: "The seating is terrible. Everyone is like sardines packed away."
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything about Aligiant is horrible. Service, attitude, even the pilots can’t land smoothly. As a diabetic, they don’t even give you water withiit paying for it. Had my wallet in my checked bag and almost had a health issue."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."
Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."

Pros: "Could,nt Have went any better."
Cons: "It was raining when we landed and we were told the guy didn't want to come out in the rain to open the door so we were stuck on the plane for a while. Being Florida, it rains. If it's your job to pen a plane door, I would think it's reasonable you do it in the rain sometimes.

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."
