The Rockford Register Star and The Journal Standard have not reported on a consistent basis the problems that Allegiant Air has had during this last year. One paper that has reported the problems with Allegiant is the Tampa Bay Times. A recent article stated that one of Allegiant’s planes was involved in four emergency landings in a six week period. http://www.tampabay.com/news/business/airlines/allegiant-air-appoints-new-coo/2262384
Allegiant had five emergency landings on flights from Florida in a one week period during the holidays this year. http://www.tampabay.com/news/business/airlines/allegiant-air-had-five-emergency-landings-out-of-florida-during-holiday/2259958
A very serious incident occurred on August 17 in Las Vegas. The report by KNTV in Las Vegas began as follows:
“Is Allegiant Air a tragedy waiting to happen? That’s what aviation experts are wondering as the Federal Aviation Administration investigates the latest mechanical failure at the Las Vegas-based carrier.” See the report at http://www.ktnv.com/news/contact-13/allegiant-aborts-takeoff-after-critical-flight-system-fails
Allegiant is the major carrier serving the Rockford, Illinois airport. Without Allegiant there would be practically no commercial service at this airport. Passengers flying out of Rockford need to know the facts about this airline. Read the articles and watch KNTV report, and then you decide if you want to fly this airline.
