My kids and I had great experiences with Allegiant Air, thanks in large part to some excellent flight attendants. This was the first flight for both of my children (5, 7) and they had a blast. On our initial flight from Indianapolis to Ft. Lauderdale the attendants even gave each of them their own set of pin-on wings since it was their first time. The kids loved this!

Flight was ontime and smooth. No issues boarding or debarking.

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".

Crew likes to have fun with their passengers -- making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. It's a budget airline so you have to pay for things like refreshments and snacks (also, carryons and if you want you boarding pass printed at the airport) -- but don't let that sway you! All it takes is a little prior organization (we packed a couple of sandwiches and printed our passes at home, plus packed very light). Overall a great experience.

The staff was nice and boarding was quick and efficient. They gave away free miles to one quest; kinda nice.

Airport waiting area was very nice with lots of different seating options. The boarding went very quickly, but that was because the flight was mostly empty. Can't believe how expensive the luggage was. I guess that is why the ticket is less expensive.

The seats were hard and the tray table was almost non-existent.

The relationship between Alaska airlines and Virgin American looks good on paper! However, they are two separate entities who's counters do not collaborate! Gate 31 at Newark, New Jersey had no digital display and therefore did not indicate the destination or flight number, because a nearby screen was dedicated for Alaska airlines. The Virgin American guys seem to set up a little temporary podium that did not have a microphone so the guy was yelling instructions to us and in the back it was very difficult to hear which boarding group they were accepting. At the check in counter they told me to get my seat assignment at the gate, so I went to the virgin American gate on the left and they said I needed to check in at the other counter which was Alaskan Airlines, which referred me back to the other gate. It was all very confusing. I doubt Richard Branson is aware of how poorly organized the boarding process was!

You pushed us up to an earlier flight so we didn’t delay the connecting flight. The seat location was worse than the original flight including, in one case, seats that didn’t recline. The fact you don’t offer free snacks on a five-hour flight is obnoxious. When we got to LA, there was absolutely no guidance where to find out conntecting flight, if we had to retrieve our bags or anything else a customer-centric airline would provide. We turned to LAPD for direction. Should that have been necessary?

The flight itself went smoothly and arrived early, and the crew was very efficient. However, I didn't realize when I booked with Spirit that I would have to pay for everything (carry-on and checked luggage, airport check-in, food and beverages, etc.). While the flight itself was inexpensive, these additional costs, especially for luggage, raised the price by over $170.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
