Scary

Wow. 60 minutes on Allegiant Airlines. Don't fly them! 99 planes, mostly old and bought from foreign countries. Not enough mechanics to service the planes. 25 in flight engine failures in 2 years! Cabins filling with smoke. Aborted take-offs.Cabin pressure loss. Focus is on profits for consecutive quarters (profits often at 30%). Pilots can't speak out - they will be fired. I know enough from listening to Bryan (my pilot son) that the issues discussed (more than I mentioned) are very serious.

I've never heard of that airline. Don't know if they fly out of O'Hare.
Very scary indeed.

It's more of a short distance airlines (sorta like a regional). Don't know if they fly out of O'Hare either. They do fly a lot of southeast coast states.
