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.

Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and I don't know when or how much I will be refunded. The flight was canceled due to "maintenance" and they booked me on a new flight...for 16 hours later on the NEXT DAY. That was not acceptable for me and my travel companion since we have work today. There were no other flights and rental cars were scarce. I was able to book us tickets on a bus, and incurred costs for the bus tickets and the transportation to the bus stop. I want to be compensated for those costs AND refunded for the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Everything. There was also a lot of miscommunication about how my gate checked bag would be handled. Once I got back to Austin, my husband had to drive all the way out to the airport to retrieve my bag because they were not able to give it to me in Dallas. It was a huge inconvenience all around."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, they offer me to change my seat to fly with my sister."

Cons: "Late take off"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, it lost power. We sat at the gate with no air conditioning for almost an hour. While they tried to jump start the plane. After deboarding due to the heat (Dallas temps around 105 F), instead of telling us the next available plane to put us on was going to be 5 hours later, they delayed the flight 15-30 minutes at a time. This was a flight from Dallas to Austin and I could have rented a car and driven in a shorter amount of time."
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Most was as expected."

Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Quick smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything went well with this flight."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
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: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Pros: "Biscoff!"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Cons: "Board keeper rude to several guest who didn't want to check in their bag when there was plenty of room on the flight."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Worst airline I have ever used. Continuously bad experiences."
Pros: "Other than the delay, it was your basic 1 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."
Cons: "no food"

Pros: "Courteous"
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."
Pros: "Everything very nice peaple"

You canceled my vacation. Why are you sending this to me? It is tone deaf and counterproductive to your purpose.

Cons: "Give complimentary water"
Pros: "Crew was Aamazzing! Went above and beyond even to sit with one of kids while I used restroom, put my kids at ease, went above and beyond to make sure at such a tender age that they were okay! Made me very happy with allegiant and happy that I chose them!"
Cons: "It’d be cool to see more inflight services some day? As in maybe WiFi at a cost or TVs, seat recliner"

Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable, no entertainment."
Pros: "Nice crew. Friendly and responsive"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Bag check agent could have been a little more friendly."
Cons: "Flight itself was great. Seats are very narrow"
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"
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: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Pros: "Cost of flight"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Couldn’t even get a cup of water."
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: "Fight was changed then late"
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly and courteous and even added some humor. Flight was on time for departure and 20 min early on arrival. Couldn’t beat the fare. Only airline to fly direct non stop to my location."
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks or snacks. Seats did not recline. Fortunately only a little over a 2 hour flight."
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: "Availability at last minute was awesome, and the price was excellent. The direct flight was great too!"
Cons: "No frills... no peanuts!"
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."
Cons: "No free water?! That’s just cruel considering the flight was over 2 hours."
Pros: "The service is not extravagant but completely adequate. Also, it is very consistent every time I fly them."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Cons: "Lands in South Terminal of Austin’s airport, meaning you have to shuttle 8 miles to get to main terminal or long term parking. Unbelievable! Very inconvenient..."
Pros: "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."
Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Both departing and return flights were delayed by just over 5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours then canceled"
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: "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: "Considering the fare was advertised between $350 and $700 with other carriers on Kayak, I took this one for $179, roundtrip, direct from LAX to Grand Junction."
Cons: "When the crew runs to get coffee in the terminal, make sure to do the same. I brought some snacks, but wish I had brought coffee. The man next to me kept creeping into my space which was incredibly annoying, but it was a relatively quick flight. Beats the two day drive from L.A. to Colorado."
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "The speed"
Cons: "Leg room"
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: "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: "The fight"
Cons: "Security"
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"
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."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Pros: "Direct flight much better not having to change planes."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight would be nice to have Wi-Fi on planes."
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: "The price."
Cons: "Having then bill me for each little thing."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Pros: "The crew was good and had customer service"
Cons: "After an 36 hour delay and only $8 meal voucher in Las Vegas, highly disappointed!!! The next flight was late arrival and Late boarding. everything to include water and sodas are extra fees. not impressed and will never fly Allegiant again"
Pros: "Great flight staff and every allegiant like we've had is very friendly and professional"
Cons: "don't like the extra price is tacked on when you purchase your tickets online each suitcase and other fees"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "6hr delay, boarded the plane 3 separate times. 2 different mechanical problems. Infrequent updates"
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Cons: "we had a 9 hour delay"
Cons: "Nice exp and service"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "My trip overall was great . I like the many stops for us to walk around and not be stuck in the plane for 11 plus hours . Our planes all the way to Zurich and back had no delays at all . Awesome"
Cons: "The only proble we experience was in the way back our booking didn’t show in the system only partial."
Pros: "boarding was fast, flight was on time, nice crew"
Cons: "pretty basic creature comforts, seats so so"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Hostess was super loud repeated destination at least 100 times."
Cons: "Pilot was calm and understanding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "Quick flight, faster than schedule. Flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room or arm space in the seats on US express jets. If the flight were longer than an hour it would make for an absolutely miserable experience."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though we reserved well in advanced my wife and I got middle seats in different rows. Fortunately, we both got aisle seats (the last ones available) but of course in different rows when we signed in for our tickets."
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Cons: "We bought this on swiss air with the terms that included free skis. When we arrived at the airport, Unites airlines informed us that skis would be $200 to check. A pretty awful surprise to start our vacation. Perhaps it should be made more clear that the operating airline’s fees with predominant - not the fees we originally agreed to at purchase. United’s planes are awfully old and small."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed our flight. The least they could have done was given us a pass to the lounge to relax considering we came in on a red eye or a lunch voucher. The staff was a bit rude."
Cons: "Plane was delayed.. Rude customers"
Pros: "All of it was good."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "2 short a trip to serve food"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "It was hot...the whole flight"
Cons: "Hot hot hot"
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Cons: "Late flight. Plane 1 hour and 37 minutes late because arriving plane was late, then the arriving plane was slow to de-plane, then spent the next hour waiting on "paperwork" to approve takeoff. Very dissatisfied."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Greenville at 6:41 pm, we never arrived until after 11 am."
Cons: "- The flight out of IAD was overbooked and left late. - My hand luggage was taken from me with promise of delivery at final destination - Staff in EWR was unhelpful and just short of rude - My luggage did not make the connection at EWR - There was no United staff in PoS to take my report of lost luggage -"
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Pros: "On time flight. And the upgrade was wonderful"
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Cons: "Coffee pot didn't work"
Cons: "Pretzels were the only food option"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Both flights were on time. The planes were new and clean."
Pros: "The personal are very amability"
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Cons: "I was bumped from my confirmed flight and had to sprint across the airport to catch an earlier flight where they put me in the back of the plane in a middle seat with an entertainment monitor that didn't work. The flight attendant said she'd try to reset the monitor and then never came back the rest of the flight. I also was not compensated for agreeing to take another flight than the one I booked, paid for and successfully checked in for. I also got into Austin later than I wanted with this new flight I was forced to take. Overall this experience was a terrible one unfortunately."
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding seemed quicker than other flights on other airlines"
Cons: "Noisy/ squeaky seat"
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "Flight attendant was extraordinarily kind, especially for the couple sitting next to me with their adorable 7-week old baby."
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was non stop to Denver."
Cons: "I did not like waiting on the plane for over an hour while the plane waited to get fuel."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Pros: "We arrived 10 minutes early which allowed me to catch connecting ground transport"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Plane was freezing cold. Even with numerous empty seats I was assigned a seat in the last row next to the laboratory and not permitted to change. Flight attendant had a poor attitude and was generally not helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My husband, sister, brother-in-law and myself flew into STL. We thought we had booked the same flight but when we got there found out our departure flight was different. We asked about moving them to our floght but it was over booked so we asked if we could move to there flight. They had 15 open seats. They told us no. There would be a charge of 500 dollars if we wanted to change. We decided to just fly out first and meet them there. We stood by the counter to speak about meeting. As we did we could hear them telling the next couple that they would have to move to the later flight. It was a huge problem for them as they would miss there connection. We then offered again to take the later flight so they could take our place on the over booked flight and make there connection. They where unwilling. Then we get on the flight and the plane was nasty and dirty. We put out tray table down and there was drink and dirt all over it. When asked if they could be cleaned we got an attitude. They never came back to do it. Luckily I had a wet wipe to do it. The plan smelled like urine. Same was true for our return flight. The plane was very old and not taken care of. This is not the first problem is we have had with United. We will not be flying with them any longer."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. 2 seats on a side, 5 thumbs up."
