Allegiant Air Update – Same Plane Two Emergency Landings in 24 Hours! When Will the Media in Northwest Illinois Report the Problems with Allegiant?

This posting is an update to the previous posting. It is hard to believe, but it is being reported that the plane that made an emergency on June 1 is the same plane that made an emergency landing today (June 2). It is even being reported that it was the same mechanical issue both days! For God’s sake, what kind of airline is this? A plane makes an emergency landing one day, and the next day it is back in service and not repaired.
