Stock's Technical Levels under Review – Allegiant Travel Company (NASDAQ: ALGT)

Quad Citians have mixed opinions about flying Allegiant Airlines after a 60 Minutes Piece aired Sunday night saying the airline had more than 100 serious mechanical incidents between January 1, 2016 and October 2017.

Ratliff also said he trust the FAA to put safety first by making sure an airline is doing everything right, and that Allegiant is under pressure from this report to be doing everything right now.

Allegiant Air offers flights from Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth to Myrtle Beach in SC, as well as Daytona Beach, Orlando and Fort Myers in Florida.

The company put out the following statement from vice president of operations Eric Gust.

Shares of the company continue to fall in the aftermath of the report on the low-priced carrier.

Allegiant also claims a terminated employee involved in a lawsuit instigated the 60 Minutes report. To suggest that Allegiant would engage in the practice of asking team members to violate company and regulatory obligations is offensive and defamatory.

That brings Allegiant's nonstop service to six cities out of Concord Regional Airport. Allegiant also canceled or rescheduled 11 separate flights leaving Las Vegas, its headquarters, during that month.

"I know that Allegiant has improved their safety issues over the years and are continuing to improve", he said. "All we can do is we can encourage Allegiant to do what's right", he said, adding he thinks it will overcome the controversy. In response to one comment, Allegiant wrote "we'd like to share our concerns about the story with you". However, thanks in large part to the efforts of the airline's mechanics, pilots and dispatchers, Allegiant has become a leader in operational reliability, with the second fewest mechanical cancellations in the industry.
