Heat, maintenance force Allegiant to shuffle Las Vegas flights

Allegiant Air rescheduled 11 flights headed out of Las Vegas and canceled one departure due to heat and maintenance issues spanning two days, an airline spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Problems arose on Sunday, when the Las Vegas-based budget carrier had to reschedule flights from McCarran International to airports in: Cincinnati; Casper, Wyoming; Fresno, California; and the Tri-Cities area of Washington state, Allegiant spokeswoman Hilarie Grey said.

A flight to Santa Rosa, California, was canceled on Sunday and could not be rescheduled because it was Allegiant’s last day of operation at that airport, Grey said. Those passengers were given an option to receive a refund or book a free flight to another Northern California airport.

The issue carried into Monday, when Allegiant rescheduled flights from Las Vegas to: Fresno; San Antonio, Texas; Bellingham, Washington; Eugene, Oregon; Laredo, Texas; and Wichita, Kansas.

Stranded travelers were provided hotels and placed on a rescheduled flight the following day.

Sunday was Allegiant’s single busiest day for scheduled flights, Grey said, making it difficult to make same-day adjustments.
