Allegiant slammed in 60 Minutes segment

60 Minutes’ Report Takes Aim at Allegiant Air 60 Minutes’ Report Takes Aim at Allegiant Air

A flight on April 18, 2015, from Punta Gorda, Florida, to Lehigh Valley International Airport, where the plane was forced to turn around because of a problem with its right engine.

Allegiant issued a statement by Eric Gust, vice president of operations, charging that the CBS story told a "false narrative" about Allegiant and the FAA.

The parent of Allegiant Airlines dropped following a "60 Minutes" segment detailing a high number of what the program called "midair breakdowns" at the budget carrier. The report also aired a long-running accusation by the Teamsters union local representing Allegiant pilots that the airline discourages pilots from reporting mechanical problems with planes.

According to the "60 Minutes" report, Allegiant reported three times as many mechanical problems with flights as six other major airlines - including Delta, American and United - over the same time period, January 2016 and last October. "Yet for the most part, allegiant's difficulties have managed to stay under the radar of the flying public", CBS News' "60 Minutes" reported Sunday. This one-sided presentation falls far short of responsible journalistic standards expected from reputable outlets, including 60 Minutes. "The City of Concord is not in a position to speak to the safety practices and operations of Allegiant or other carriers, other than all airlines must meet FAA requirements".

Russian Federation had earlier warned that it would equip Syria with better anti-air missile defense systems to take down any missile attacks in the future.


The internal memo was first tweeted by AirlineGeeks.com, and Allegiant later confirmed to CBS News that it had been sent to employees. He is said to be indulged in "lawsuit seeking money damage against the company". "We have safely carried almost 90 million passengers since beginning operations in 2001". Our team members safely operate thousands of flights each week, which will transport more than 14 million passengers this year. She heard about the 60 Minutes story an hour before her cab was supposed to take her and her friends to the airport.

Allegiant flies out of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport on a daily basis with over 40 destinations.

"To me it's safer to fly allegiant today than it ever has been before because of all this additional scrutiny that's taking place". The FAA later overruled Allegiant's objections and produced the documents. We will continue to work with Allegiant and our regulatory partners in providing safe travel experiences for our passengers. The segment also covered multiple safety incidents for the airline including an in-flight engine failure over the last few years. The 60 Minutes report referenced a 2015 report from the Tampa Bay Times that found the low-priced carrier made emergency landings at four times the rate of other airlines in the United States.
