Mechanical snag strands Allegiant flight with 200 fliers on board

Published on : Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Allegiant AirAlmost 200 hundred Allegiant Airlines fliers are stranded in Las Vegas. The airline cancelled its flight to Oklahoma City and said there would not be another one until Thursday.

 
Passengers received an email from the airline saying they’d send them a check for $300 in the next seven to ten business days, and if they choose not to re-book with Allegiant the flight will be refunded.

 
However, passengers talking to media said that’s not enough.

 
“No money to eat, no flights, all of the cars are gone, no rental cars, we have no hotel room,” passenger Alana Buckner said.

 
She and other passengers went to the Allegiant desk for answers, where Buckner says they were turned away.

 
“They locked the doors, they said, we asked to speak with somebody higher up they said that she is on vacation. We asked for phone numbers for someone corporate anything and they said there’s nothing they could do and they were going to call security, we needed to leave,” Buckner said.

 
“It’s ridiculous I feel like at the very least you should give us another flight. Even at 7 a.m., give me something. Thursday is not even an option,” Buckner said. “We all have children and jobs that we need to get to Monday morning and no way to get back home.”

 
A small handful of passengers were put on a plane to Tulsa, and passengers that looked for other airlines found tickets near $1500.

 

Spokeswoman for Allegiant Airlines Krysta Levy profusely apologised for the last minute cancellation on behalf of the company and added that mechanical issues were to blame for the decision.
