Flights Delayed As Allegiant Inspects Exit Slides

Posted: Updated:

Allegiant Airlines is inspecting emergency exit slides in its MD80 fleet. The company expects to complete the process by the end of September. MD80 aircraft will be placed back in service as soon as possible.  Allegiant returned 18 aircraft into service, leaving as many as 32 MD80s out of service, causing Allegiant to delay, reschedule or cancel a number of flights over the next several days.

"We apologize for the disruption to our passengers and ask that they please remain patient as we work to correct the issue, reschedule affected flights and accommodate any passengers impacted," says Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President. "Allegiant is committed, above all else, to the safety of our passengers and crew, and we are dedicated to working around-the-clock to ensure that all of our fleet meets the highest standards."

As of this update, 18 of 121 scheduled flights will not be completed today. Sixteen of those flights will operate Sept. 21, and two flights between Oakland, Ca . and Reno, Nv. will be cancelled. Approximately 20 additional flights will be significantly delayed.

Allegiant teams are working to accommodate all affected passengers and will offer the following compensation:

  • Flights delayed less than four hours: $100 voucher for future travel 

  • Flights delayed 4-6 hours: $150 off voucher for future travel 

  • Flights delayed 6 or more hours: $200 voucher for future travel 

  • Reschedule flights: Full refund and $200 voucher for future travel 

     

For passengers delayed overnight, hotel accommodations and meals will be provided. For travel and compensation questions, please call Allegiant Customer Care at 702-505-8888

It's not known how long flight schedule disruptions will continue. Customers can sign up for flight alerts for individual flights at https://www2.allegiantair.com/flight-status or call 702-505-8888.
