The passengers had to face a delay of more than five hours. The flight reached its actual destination Sanford International Airport after 6:30pm local time.

 

 

Allegiant Air spokesperson Jessica Wheeler informed that the passengers were given meals and drink-vouchers and the flight authority also gave them a chance to change their flight without charging them extra amount.

 

 

Passengers of Allegiant Air Flight 749, were given a $50 off voucher for their next Allegiant Air flight as a sorry gesture.
