Allegiant Air Complaint - Extra Charges
DULUTH, MINNESOTA -- In reviewing my itinerary for a trip to Orlando, I noticed that we were charged for tripflex insurance ($31.96) and priority boarding ($19.98). Allegiant makes you opt out of these instead of opting in. That doesn't seem quite fair to me. You have a 24 hour period to make a change to your reservation. Unfortunately, that time had passed when I noticed these charges. Also, when you make a reservation with Allegiant, they automatically assign you seats. For this flight, they had my husband and I sitting several rows apart when, in fact there were many seats open where we could have sat together. Come on, give me a break! Of course, then when you change your seats in order to sit together, you are charged for this ($51.96).
This is the biggest ripoff of all. I know of no other airline that charges for seat assignments. The initial airfare might be lower, but by the time you pay these extra charges, it's a ripoff!
