Allegiant Air in northwest washington has been a discount airline who provides no-frill flights to select usa cities.
We travellers that use this type of airline is because we simply need to get from point a-b and don't want to pay for low value frills that come at a high cost such as the "dreaded airline meal" etc.
But, like always, once something becomes successful the provider of these services generally start to get a little fat and start increasing either flight fees, baggage fees or both. Allegiant is guilty of this.
What used to be a value airline now feels like it's not a lot different from the other mainstream airlines. Their significantly increased baggage/flight fees over the past year has made them far less attractive.
I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada and the drive between Vancouver and Bellingham, Wa is minimal so I generally travel out of Bellingham. Why? Because as usual, the Canadian Airline operators are worse and always want to hit the "home run" as far as fees go so we travel across the line...
I hope I haven't rambled too long. Just my $.02 cents worth... that you asked for.
