60 Minutes also spoke to a pilot who claimed that he was sacked for an "evacuation that was entirely unwarranted" in a separate incident after flight attendants reported smoke in the cabin.

"We found more than 100 serious mechanical incidents, including mid-air engine failures, smoke and fumes in the cabin, rapid descents, flight control malfunctions, hydraulic leaks and aborted take-offs", host Steve Kroft said Sunday night.

In Illinois, Allegiant is a low-fare carrier for regional airports such as the Quad-City International Airport and airports in Bloomington, Peoria and Springfield.

That brings Allegiant's nonstop service to six cities out of Concord Regional Airport. "We are confident that no other airline is under more scrutiny by the FAA than Allegiant".

Allegiant isn't happy about the report.

The "60 Minutes" investigation used fresher data to examine similar issues. But none of them break down in midair more often than Allegiant.

The fear arose during a flight on Allegiant Airlines from CVG Airport.

Kendrick Lamar Becomes First Rapper To Win Pulitzer Prize For Music
The board announced the news today (April 16) that the Top Dawg Entertainment LP achieved the honor in " Music Composition". He has apologized for "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past" but denied any non-consensual sexual contact.

CBS' latest episode of "60 Minutes" featured details of a seven-month-long investigation of the Las Vegas-based low-budget carrier, including an "alarming number" of issues between January 1, 2016, and October 31, 2017.

Newsweek reports John Goglia, the former presidential appointee to the National Transport Safety Board, called the airline's record of 60 unscheduled landings and 46 in-flight emergencies "very, very high for an airline of its size".

Martini is not the only passenger who was upset by the information she learned in the 60 Minutes interview.

It's not the first time Allegiant has come under fire.

"I want to tell you personally that I am outraged and astounded by the irresponsible, grossly misleading story aired by CBS 60 Minutes", Gust said in a statement to customers. He said the airline complies with all FAA requirements and takes part in many voluntary safety programs and is subject to "rigorous oversight" by the FAA. It's unclear what Allegiant means by "concerns".

"I probably won't fly no more", Jamie Butler said after learning of the report's allegations. "I think they are as safe today as they were yesterday and the day before". "The Sanford Airport Authority has total confidence in the FAA". He said the airline is in the process of replacing its fleet with new Airbus jets, and in January had the second lowest number of flight cancellations among US carriers.

"We're extremely pleased with the Allegiant service, and the travelling public through MidAmerica is also", Cantwell said. The people, however, through social media have shown their active participation and have given their views too for the Air Allegiant that they won't be travelling in that aircraft. Some also received a comment from Allegiant indicating officials would be willing to discuss any concerns in a private forum.
