Many say that Allegiant Airlines, the minibus of the sky, is so bad that it makes Spirit and China Eastern Airlines, the Greyhound of the sky, look good. Is it? Here is TPOL’s Allegiant Airlines review:
The booking process is a headache. First select where you hope to fly:
Then say no to the following:
You’re not done yet. The fun has only just begun:
Planning on sitting somewhere in this cramped plane? Allegiant charges for seat assignment. Though that’s become the standard across airlines, it doesn’t make it right.
Want to carry on a bag? That’ll be an extra charge you must prepay. If you aren’t crafty in trying to sneak in a bag that doesn’t fit under the seat in front of you it’s a $50 fee at the airport. Checking in the golf clubs for the prepaid rate of $25 was reasonable.
Forgot to print your boarding pass? That’ll be $5 buster.
Now let’s board the plane:
This review doesn’t include photos of the inside of the plane as I will leave that to your imagination. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, soft drinks are not included, and the seats don’t lie flat.
Still if you don’t get delayed, don’t get caught holding the bag like Frontier Airlines says, and if you arrive at your destination, I guess Allegiant might be OK.
