My review of Allegiant Air 

I have flown on Allegiant Air more than a dozen times.  The prices are fantastic,  the service is great.  The employees go above and beyond what the standard carrier provides.  I have had the opportunity to explore incredibly beautiful destinations I thought were out of my reach thanks to their business model. And the best of all is flying back home and knowing your 15 mins from the airport parking lot to your driveway.  I can honestly say I give Allegiant Air and the Punta Gorda Airport five stars.
