Allegiant Air Flights Delayed, Canceled


By KMVT News

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - More than a dozen flights have been delayed or canceled by Las Vegas based airline Allegiant Air today (Friday).

The reason for the delayed flights is an abrupt inspection of the emergency slides on their M-D 80 planes.

In a statement, released on Facebook, the company says it's committed to the safety of their passengers and crew and are "working around the clock to correct the issue."

There is no word on what prompted the company's decision to inspect the planes.

Passengers are encouraged to check on the status of their flights at or to call 702-505-8888.
