I’ve been watching this story on Allegiant that was on 60 minutes. The airline has had 25 engine failures in less than 2 years according to the video. And other failures. Someone that used to work for the NTSB said that this is a very high amount of failures for an airline of this size. This is a harrowing account of what this airline is doing. They terminated a captain for evacuating the aircraft after they landed and had smoke in the cabin. In the letter saying it was unwarranted and the captain didn’t value company assets. There has also been 100 serious incidents in a 22 month period. The FAA has not looked into Allegiant even with these issues.
My opinion: After seeing this I am terrified that Allegiant will have a disaster sometime soon. The U.S. aviation field has been good with safety (at least to my knowledge) and I feel that Allegiant might ruin that.
