LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
Eleven outbound Allegiant Air flights needed to be rescheduled or canceled entirely within a 48-hour duration from McCarran International Airport. The pattern came around one week after clients were stranded in Las Vegas for four days, attempting to fly to Oklahoma City.
Flights to the following cities were impacted on Monday.
Monday, July 31
Bellingham, Washington (rescheduled).
Fresno, California (rescheduled).
San Antonio, Texas (rescheduled).
Eugene, Oregon (rescheduled).
Laredo, Texas (rescheduled).
Wichita, Kansas (rescheduled).
According to FlightAware.com, Allegiant Air was the only airline company to cancel a single outgoing flight on Monday.
Hilarie Grey, a spokesperson for Allegiant Air, did not state the reason for the majority of the canceled flights. She said that the very first three flights were rescheduled for Tuesday. FOX5 did not immediately get or request information about the flights to Eugene, Wichita or Laredo, which were canceled later in the day.
Genevieve Haley, who was expected to be on the flight to Bellingham, stated she remained in town for a roller derby convention. She stated her flight was canceled due to “mechanical problems.”
” Allegiant simply truly has to get it together,” she stated. “Thirty-six hours is a long time to ask people to wait.”
The airline offered Haley a space at the South Point Hotel, but she will be not able to obtain back the money she lost at work. Still, after she did some research, she realized she was among the fortunate ones. Travelers trying to fly to Oklahoma City recently did not have any of their hotel costs repaid despite having to wait four days for the next outgoing flight. Rather, they got $300 contingent upon their agreement not to submit a suit against Allegiant Air.
Grey stated that the factor those guests didn’t get hotel spaces was since that flight was canceled instead of rescheduled.
” It sounds like they’ve been having a lot of concerns in the previous 2 weeks,” Haley said. “There’s lots of people that are making sacrifices and losing cash, and my sibling actually is missing out on a task interview after being out of a job for a month.”
Final flight to Santa Rosa canceled
Brian Donnellan, another client, did not have his flight rescheduled. He said he was supposed to fly to Santa Rosa, California on Saturday when his flight was canceled.
Donnellan’s set up journey was the last scheduled Allegiant flight to ever go to Santa Rosa. He stated the cancellation forced him to lease an automobile and drive house to be with his household.
According to the Allegiant Air website, 2 other flights out of Las Vegas had to be rescheduled on Saturday. The travel notifies page does not have any mention of flights that are not rescheduled, although Grey verified Donnellan’s story is precise.
Sunday, July 30
Santa Rosa, California (not rescheduled).
Casper, Wyoming (rescheduled).
Cincinnati, Ohio (rescheduled).
Tri-Cities, Washington (rescheduled).
Fresno, California (rescheduled).
Grey said the flight to Santa Rosa had to be canceled “due to a downline mechanical issue.”
” Passengers have been provided additional funds to assist defray costs associated with the last-minute change,” she said.
Donnellan stated the money he is supposed to receive will not even cover the cost of the rental automobile he had to require to get house, not to mention the rest of his money and time lost.
