Allegiant Air responds to its safety record

60 Minutes’ Report Takes Aim at Allegiant Air

Abbotsford realtor Jonathan Gelderman said he has noticed a marked difference in Allegiant's on-time performance for flights out of the Bellingham International Airport since bringing newer planes on its routes from the airport. Earlier this month, the airline announced new flights from Jacksonville to Louisville, Kentucky, and Norfolk, Virginia. Sometimes, flyers have to choose between cost and comfort.

In a statement Monday, Allegiant said it has 31 MD-80s in its entire fleet.

"I think they follow the rules", passenger Guy Boulais said.

"I have encouraged my family, my friends and myself not to fly on Allegiant". "The airport that they went to was close to home". Allegiant Air reports filed with regulators show more than 100 serious incidents in less than two years.

Gust, in his statement, said Allegiant complies with all FAA requirements, and that any suggestion that the airline muzzled employees "is offensive and defamatory".

The "60 Minutes" report questioned the FAA's 2015 adoption of its "compliance philosophy", which aims to work with airlines to foster improved compliance and reporting of issues.

"My reaction to the show is anger that the public is being subjected to some known dangers".

A Versailles woman flying out of Cincinnati captured one of those scary moments when an engine blew on takeoff.

"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.

John Nelson of Dunnegan, said, "The flights are fine, the planes are fine". "It is something that is terrifying to pilots and passengers".

"I've used it several times to Phoenix and Vegas and have had zero issues", Gelderman said. "Not with what I know now". "We as a board are obviously concerned about safety". Booth offered some advice.

There are flights offered from Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth to Myrtle Beach in SC, as well as Daytona Beach, Orlando and Fort Myers in Florida. United Airlines was excoriated last year after officers bloodied and dragged a 69-year-old man off a plane to make room for a crew member, yet the incident seemed to have no effect on ticket sales.

Passengers shouldn't worry too much if they fly one of Allegiant's newer planes, Weinkrantz 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.

In a written response sent to KELO.com News, Allegiant says the "star" source in the report is highly suspect.

Safety experts say the numbers tell another story.

After the CBS report aired Sunday evening, U.S. Sen. The violation of those obligations would trigger not only punitive action from Allegiant, but could also result in enforcement action from regulatory agencies, loss of a certification, and even criminal charges.

Hastert points out Allegiant passed its most recent federal audit, a Certificate Holder Evaluation Process that was conducted by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in 2016. "Anything less could lead to disastrous consequences".

Lowe said she has no concerns about booking Allegiant for her customers. Airport Manager Bob Whitmer tells us, they've had no incidents with Allegiant.
