New SRQ carrier Allegiant has safety record scrutinized on '60 Minutes'

  • 60 Minutes Preview: Is Allegiant Airlines Safe to Fly?

Allegiant is the only official airline that flies in and out of Rockford.

"It does not appear they are on it when it comes to Allegiant", Alkalay responded.

The Las Vegas-based company reported that last month, it had 1,356,305 scheduled passengers, up from 1,143,571 in March of 2017.

O'Neill says MD-80s haven't flown in and out of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway in more than a year after the airport underwent a full transition.

"It was a little bit disturbing to watch that", Ed Riney, airport board chairman, said of the "60 Minutes" report.

John Goglia: "I've encouraged my friends, my family, and myself not to fly Allegiant". "We're happy they fly out of Owensboro".

The FAA also reported a sharp decline over the past three years in the number of issues experienced by Allegiant flights. The last time he did that for a US airline of similar size "was ValuJet prior to the 1996 crash in the Everglades", he said.

Allegiant has been taking its MD-80 jetliners out of service and replacing them with Airbuses, driving down the airline's rate of mechanical problems, he said.

A CBS "60 Minutes report" about Allegiant Air has rattled some nerves. Church said the flight was delayed for three hours due to a maintenance issue, and when it did take off she could smell fuel in the air coming out of the overhead vents. "We were flying 280,000 out of that airport in the late 70's", said Wilhoit.

That left Park two shots behind Henderson going into the seventh, but she fell further behind as she struggled to make birdies. Pernilla Lindberg shot 70 in her first start since beating Park in an eight-hole playoff in the year's first major.

"It is unfortunate and disappointing that CBS" "60 Minutes' has chosen to air a false narrative about Allegiant and the FAA", Allegiant vice president of operations Eric Gust said. "Allegiant complies with all FAA requirements and participates in numerous voluntary safety programs to ensure we operate to the highest standards".

"I'm concerned", said Mary Jo Horton, traveling to Cincinnati.

Sioux Falls Airport Manager Dan Letellier says that Allegiant does about 16 to 17 percent of the business at Joe Foss Field.

In July 2016 the agency said a safety audit at Allegiant found issues in multiple areas, including incorrect pilot-training materials and incomplete flight manuals. "All the bad things I've done in my life", she said to her sister, "and now I'm going to die". "I think they are as safe today as they were yesterday and the day before".

WTOL 11 reached out to the Toledo Lucas County Port Authority.

"In 2016, we moved up Allegiant's 2018 scheduled review, known as a Certificate Holder Evaluation Process (CHEP)". "It's only going to take one time to really screw up and you're going to kill a bunch of people". "It is so good about direct service (to vacation destinations)".

Shares of the company continue to fall in the aftermath of the report on the low-priced carrier.

"The captain came on and said some smoke was spotted (when the landing gear came down) and as a precaution we were being met by the fire department", said Check on Monday.
