allegiant air

How many of you have used them out of Bellingham? I went to Vagas with them last year and have booked again in2 months.I have read so many bad reviews about them ,now I'm having second thoughts. Yes we were delayed last Feb for 7 hrs but didn't reallize that ,that is normal for them.Now I hear that there is nobody at the counter except for certain times and that pasengers that were there 2 hrs before flight haven't gotten on because there was nobody at counter at the time and when staff have arrived its less than 2 hours before flight and the passengers have been told that they can't get on.Allegiant says that they don't overbook their flights so I don't understand...Please someone out there ease my mind there are 6 of us going and 4 of them have never been.I don't want their trip ruined because of me..Is there any good things about this airline?

Allegiant is owned by some of the casinos. Haven't heard much good or bad. There is an air forum on here or you can try asking on flyertalk.com

which is a forum solely for frequent airtravelers. They have a forum for each air carrier. Like most things more people will post complaints vs happy customers so take things with a grain of salt.

Our family of 5 flew with them last Feb. We had no problems whatsoever.We got an amazing deal to vegas, under 100.00 a person round trip. That even included us paying the extra for assigned seats.

I am using them again this mon. got a great vegas package deal. You really have to keep watching for the low prices.

I have flown with them many times out of Bellingham to Vegas, Los Angeles & San Diego, for adult & family vacations. We have never had a problem with them, ever. Even at other airports the staff was nice & polite. I highly recommend them.

we have flown with them several times to san diego. the last time was 27mar from san diego to bellingham for the 3 of us. all these times traveling with them, we have never had any problems except we were delayed only for an hour or so once from yvr to vegas. i think you and your friends will be fine , sometimes we can't always worry about things that are out of our control. as you know, allegiant will NOT credit any fare difference like alaska and they charge for pop and bottled water at $2 on board unlike alaska which is complimentary. the seats are fine and the leg space is good as well and usually the fare between allegiant and alaska on the same routes is a minimum of $20 or more each way.

have fun on your trip

Ive used Allegiant once out of Bellingham and it was very smooth. Ill be using them in 10 days again to take some R & R in Vegas and I expect only the same.

Some "2 hours" people might be stretching it a bit... Allegiant has a policy (I believe) of closing check-in 45 minutes ahead of the flight. They certainly want people paying for seat selection and for the $40 it cost the 2 of us round-trip balanced with the no-frills fares weve paid I think its money well spent.

We can show up 45 minutes to an hour before and slide smoothly (fingers-crossed) thru the usually friendly TSA line at that airport.
