    AllegiantAir charges to print your boarding pass in person check in through their app 24 hrs prior and use the app to go through security. Kind of fun. No more lines.

    For fast & cheap Allegiant flights, don't reserve a bag or a seat - both will charge you. Buy a bag that fits under the seat in front of you. No carry-on charges, no check-in wait, & quick security!

    There's no indoor, non-security route between baggage claim/rental car kiosks and ticketing. Gates are open air too. And Allegiant is on time but uncomfortable.

    You have to cross 5 lanes of traffic to get from the rental car drop-off lot to the terminal. Unsafe, and bad if you're in a rush.

    Very affordable way to travel. They offer some great prices for flights but on unusual days and times. My wife flies back home to Washington through here frequently.

    For domestic travels check this airport to see if they have cheaper tickets because they usually do. However, arrive early if you don't want to miss your flight. There are usually huge lines.

    Cute little airport, free WiFi. Check the cactus garden between gates 5 and 4. If you printed your boarding pass ahead of time you can breeze through security.

    All food options are closed inside security for late night flights. Pack your own snacks and fill a water bottle full of ice before arrival. At security you only need to drink or dump melted liquid.

    Avoid Allegiant. Otherwise nice airport with a small cafe. Close to a shopping center if you want Starbucks or maybe Jack in the Box.

    Allegiant is a good way to save money but be aware of flights always being delayed and I almost died on one of there flights! Pilot was either drinking or banging a crackwhore in the cockpit.

    Check out Airforce 1 parked on the tarmac it's for sale

    Have your boarding pass printed from home, and go straight to security screening. No need to check in at the gate then.

    I will never fly Spirit again. No wonder they're being sued for billions! I would comment on their horrible customer service, but the fact of the matter is that it does not exist!

    I printed the boarding pass last night, got a seat assigned and slid through all checkpoints. Organized airport.

    Beware of Spirit Airlines! Terrible check-in/carry-on policy and even worse customer service!

    Even though this airport takes FOR-EVA to get to from downtown Phoenix, it's worth it for my family in Nebraska to be able to fly easily and quickly to the PHX metro area!

    Odd that Allegiant asks us to check in online ahead of time but does not provide a special express line for advance check ins like at YVR.

    Terrible waits and the planes suck but it's cheap. Watch out the bag wait limit is now 40 pounds and they charge between 20 and 35 bucks for a carry on! Bullshit!

    Love this place late at night. No waiting. Even the shuttles are efficient.

    If you check a bag online it's $50 ... If you check it at the ticket counter it is only $35. Save yourself $15!

    Flying Allegiant, check in 24 hours before online. Be here an hour or so before flight to get through bag check and security. Smooth process, friendly people from airport, airline, and TSA.

    Make sure you ask for your BLUE STICKER at the ticketing/check in center BEFORE you go to the security check in. If you don't you either have to wait in line or go all the way back to the check in.

    Check out the courtyard outside. It is cute and a good way to get fresh air in the secure area!

    Short trip? Fly cheap! Pack a bag that fits under the seat to avoid extra fees on either Spirit or Allegiant. Print your boarding pass ahead of time to avoid lines and this airport is quick and easy

    Cheap flights are great and even worth paying for a bag. Flight attendants with allegiant tend to be extremely rude throughout flight, however, which gets annoying.

    I've been waiting in line for an hour to check into my flight and there are still about 30-40 people behind me waiting for a flight that leaves in 40 mins. Still have to go through TSA.

    I thought Sky Harbor baggage claim was bad, this is seriously the freakin WORST. Prepare 2 wait an hour. Literally.

    The snack bar has a very limited menu late nights; the gift shop is open late but has lousy snacks - Quick Trip outside airport place to buy good snacks and / or eat before flight - Village Inn close

    It's no longer open seating. You have to pick before purchasing your ticket or get what they give you.
