60 Minutes Report Slags Allegiant Airlines For Safety Issues
The Dispatch-Argus is reporting this morning on a 60 Minutes segment that aired last night citing safety issues with Allegiant Airlines.
The Las Vegas based air carrier flies several flights each week from the Quad Cities to Sanford, St. Pete's and Fort Meyers, Florida; Las Vegas; and Meza, Arizona.
The 60 Minutes segment accused mechanics with the airline of asking pilots to not report mechanical of safety concerns. According to CBS News, Allegiant is three-and-a-half times more likely to experience safety issues than major airlines.
