Most local fliers are familiar with Allegiant Air, which is one of the airlines that service the Fort Wayne International Airport, but the airline is currently under fire for a situation brewing in Las Vegas, after they allegedly stranded about 200 passengers there.
Fox News reports passengers headed from Vegas to Oklahoma City received a last-minute email Monday, saying their flight had been canceled and another one wouldn’t arrive until Thursday. Passengers say they were offered a $300 check, which would be mailed to them in a little over a week, but that’s not enough.
An Allegiant spokeswoman says mechanical issues were to blame for the decision. If that sounds familiar, it should: a report last November said that Allegiant flights were “four times as likely” to have mechanical problems that force an emergency landing.
