Allegiant Air Delays

Allegiant Airlines is reporting flight delays nationwide while it inspects emergency slides on its MD-80 aircraft, days after 150 passengers and crew members used slides to evacuate one of its planes in Las Vegas bound for Peoria.  Allegiant operates seaonal direct flights to Florida from the Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport beginning again in November.

The Las Vegas-based airline posted a notice Friday apologizing for disrupting customers’ travel plans and promising around-the-clock work to correct unspecified problems.
