| This was my first time flying with Allegiant, as I usually fly with Southwest. I thought I would try this airline to return home from an unexpected short vacation to FL. My seat was 3D (a seat I had paid for), and I had a carry on bag. I attempted to put my bag in the overhead bin, but it was closed, and I was quickly corrected that those were reserved for rows 1 and 2 passengers and their items. The bins for the next several rows were full of other passenger's items, so I placed my carry on about 5 rows back in that bin. I was thinking how inconvenient this would be when I went to get off the plane, as I would have to backtrack to get my personal items. As rows 1 and 2 filled, the flight attendant opened those 2 overhead bins, and after there was no more traffic from passengers boarding the plane, I realized there was still plenty of space to put my small carry on bag right above my seat. As I got up and went several rows back to grab my bag and move it, the flight attendant quickly corrected me and told me they were still waiting on 1 more passenger and they may need that space. She was rude and loud. I told her if another passenger boarded and there was not room for my belongings, that I would move them again. She replied with another rude comment, rolled her eyes, and kept to herself. Another passenger never boarded. There would have been space for my belongings the entire time, as there should have been, because again, I paid for this seat, and I have just as much right as any other passenger to store my personal belongings near me. The FA was so rude that even the other passengers around me noticed, and were caught off guard by her attitude. When exiting the plane after landing in Louisville, I grabbed my carry on (which was now above me in the overhead bin due to me moving it), and watched as the FA said "Thank you for flying with Allegiant, have a good day!" to passengers exiting before me; when I exited, she didn't look at me, nor wish me a good day. Overall poor customer service.
