Allegiant Air defends safety record after '60 Minutes' report
Allegiant Air was on the defensive Monday after a scathing report on CBS’ 60 Minutes that blasted the airline’s safety record after reviewing 100 mechanical problems from January 2016 to October 2017.
Allegiant had three times as many mechanical problems with flights as six competing airlines during a year of reports filed with the Federal Aviation Administration, which 60 Minutes obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request.
