Which Airline’s Planes Are 4X More Likely To Fail During Flight?
This should make you feel better about all the times you opted not to take the low-cost carrier! A recent study by the Tampa Bay Times found Allegiant Air planes are four times more likely than other major US carriers to fail in-flight.
Two of the not so fun facts their investigation uncovered about Allegiant aircraft:
- In 2015, nearly half of the airline’s 86 planes broke down inflight at least once.
- Other carriers’ planes have an average age of 12 years old, Allegiant planes average 22 years.
The full study is pretty interesting, including Allegiant’s response when presented with the findings.
Do you think Allegiant’s crazy cheap fares are worth the risk?
