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

number of flights over the next several days.

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.

affected passengers and will offer the following compensation:
