Flew down to visit our relatives for a mini vacation over the July 4th holiday. This would be my first trip on Allegiant, and I have heard good things about them. We checked in around 9:30am, and it was a breeze, then headed over to security. That went by quick too. Everything was fairly smooth this morning. Normally when I fly I like the first flight of the day around 6am, and CID
is always busy then as all of the outbound hub flights to places like ORD
leave about the same time. Since our SFB
flight was mid-morning (10:50am) and because it was the 4th of July we got to bypass that. Once we made it thru the security checkpoint we headed up to gate C5 where we would board. Our flight would be full today. We had got priority boarding, and I was glad we did. We were off on time, taking of to the west then quickly turning southeast. Our route would take us southeast over southern Illinois, Kentucky, then over the Nashville area, Atlanta, then down to Jacksonville where we followed the Atlantic Coastline before we turned back towards SFB
. Here are some pics enroute, the Mississippi River crossing into Illinois, downtown Atlanta, the Atlantic coast of FL
, descent into SFB
airport. Service was great, I decided to purchase a diet pepsi. Everything on G4
is buy on board, but I could not complain since the service was good and our airfare was a good rate.
Flight home was full again too. Once again we had priority boarding. Our flight home would take us west out of Orlando to the Gulf Coast just north of Tampa, then we would turn north over the Gulf and come back in on the panhandle side over Tallahassee, over AL
, KY and southern IL
near the St Louis area.
Overall I was very pleased with Allegiant, and will be flying them again this fall to LAS
