Allegiant Air scored an impressive 91% for on-time arrivals between November 15, 2013 through January 15, 2013. That’s a great improvement and is according to FlightStats website. This good news comes as the airline prepares to cautiously launch new flights to Mexico following their not entirely successful Hawaii debut.
Allegiant Hawaii – Service from Bellingham, Las Vegas, Boise, Los Angeles and Spokane.
The company’s Hawaii flights for winter continue to our Aloha State. It isn’t clear what flights might be on tap for the summer. The company’s schedule only runs through April at this time. We don’t anticipate any significant expansion of Allegiant Hawaii service, however, as Hawaii hasn’t proved successful for the otherwise financially vibrant carrier.
Allegiant’s timing on entering the Hawaii market was unfortunate.
There was too much supply in relation to demand to support profitable ticket pricing. Bellwether carriers Hawaiian Airlines and Alaska Airlines have reduced capacity and brought pricing to desirable levels. That has allowed Allegiant to remain in Hawaii albeit in somewhat less force than was anticipated. Hawaii visitors have also shared mixed reviews on Allegiant’s ultra-discount, totally a la carte pricing model, wherein even carry-on baggage and water must be purchased.
Hawaii Flight Cancellation in Spokane.
Allegiant said they were unable to land in Spokane recently due to inadequate low visibility weather equipment on its 757. That equipment would result in unwanted added costs for the airline. Passengers indicated that the flight was initially postponed for two days before being scrapped entirely. The company offered a complete refund to passengers.
