Allegiant Defends Service After “60 Minutes” Report
(Moline, IL) — One of the few airlines to serve most of Illinois’ airports outside of Chicago is defending its reputation after a scathing report on its safety. Allegiant Airlines yesterday called Sunday’s piece on “60 Minutes” ‘one sided.’ The report cited federal reports that showed Allegiant had more than 100 serious mechanical issues in 2016 and 2017. Allegiant flies to the Quad Cities, Rockford, Peoria, Springfield, Bloomington-Normal, and the Metro East. An airline official yesterday said that they are proud of their dedication to safety.
