    Potential flyers on Allegiant Airlines be aware..

    I am writing this to caution people from taking Allegiant Air NOT to warn people NOT to take it. I had a dream 3 nights in a row that a plane with Allegiant crashed. I am not a psychic (and except for one time) nothing in my dreams happened (usually I don't even remember them but this dream I wake up right away and remember clearly) but I had it 3 nights in a row and after the third night, I thought to reassure myself I would google Allegiant and read about them and what I read horrified me. There was article about how both the mechanics AND pilots say in order to cut corners this airline is deferring maintenance, letting planes fly that need to be fixed etc. There are stories of flights delayed or diverted because they had problems.

    It angers me that the airline claims that the accusations by the pilots union are a bargaining tactic. If pilots strike because of wages, benefits they will state so, they will not claim an airline is unsafe if it's not so, if they get the wages they want, but people won't fly because an airline is unsafe, they will not have a job. They are aware they have ultimate responsibility for the safety of their passengers and that if there IS a crash the airline and the manufacturer will want to exonerate themselves from culpability and blame it on pilot error. What one should consider is the more well paid the pilot the better the pilot is. They had some crashes on some small commuter airlines in the past, one from a pilot that was criticized for not being very observant and one from a pilot exhausted from her commute. What about the mechanic in Florida that quit after two weeks because of all the lax maintenance problems he saw, he doesn't work for them so doesn't need money from them.


    I do not know what to do, I don't want to draw interest to me and derided as a kook, by a government agency especially if nothing happens or be thought of a terrorist and be blamed for it, if something does (I also do not have any details to know what flight it would be to warn a specific agency or the airline, like the flight number,origin/destination or type of plane.) I have flown them once and although it was not too pleasant an experience, it's wouldn't make me angry enough to make a false accusation.I have no affillation with their pilots union. I decided to post this online because what I hope the dream was, is a warning maybe God (and I'm not even deeply religious) is using me as a wake up call for this airline to stop cutting corners and check out all their airplanes for defects and fix them and not sign off on work that hasn't been checked and thus using me to PREVENT an accident from happening, I hope after posting this the dreams will stop. I hope to God nothing happens, I am NOT saying not to take the airline, although I wouldn't myself, google them and decide for yourself if saving a few dollars is worth it. If you DO take them, maybe it would't be a bad idea to get the flight insurance if they still sell it at the airport. For those taking them, take comfort that statistically airline crashes are very rare.

    Such a rational warning sure convinced me.
