Allegiant: No Cancellations Due To MD-80 Work

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Allegiant Air is reporting no cancellations in its modest Tuesday schedule while crews continue a systemwide rehab of emergency exit slides on MD-80 aircraft.

Company spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler says the airline had 25 flights scheduled nationwide, including 12 carried over after they were canceled Monday.

Wheeler says at least 32 of Allegiant’s fleet of 52 MD-80s are back in service.

About 10 percent of Allegiant passengers endured cancelations since Friday, after the airline grounded MD-80s until each exit chute was overhauled to meet manufacturer’s recommendations.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Co. began the effort after reviewing maintenance records following a smoke alarm and emergency evacuation of a Sept. 16 Allegiant flight in Las Vegas.

The inflatable chutes worked properly, and no one was hurt.
