Allegiant stock for TOTD. Up $50 since the union sent out this nugget.


Can you imagine over 43 instances of QRH-directed engine shutdowns and/or compressor stall issues at American Airlines in just over 7 weeks? What about over 28 aircraft landing under emergency status in a single domicile in a single day? Or over 86 air returns/mechanical diversions in a five day period? If Allegiant were the size of American Airlines, this would be the case.

Not impressed. Show me one from the flight levels, then we can talk.

How is this in the TOTD thread? MG is a business genius! Regardless of his relationship with labor, he is the profit guru. You're just p-d off because you didn't invest.

TOTD? Pretty much anyone who has ever used a selfie stick.

Remember,
I know, right?! Exploiting labor should always be applauded. That why I try to get all my textiles from 3rd world countries.

Not saying that AT ALL, but you can't call the guy a tool because his stock price has gone up 180 bucks in 8 or so years.

He may be a first class a**, but that doesn't take away what kind of business man he is. Again, he's no friend of labor and he very well may be a tool for a million other reasons, but not this one.

Working on it. My oxygen mask keeps on blowing off and then I wake up below 16,000.

You're not "required" to be an idiot. Why would he get involved in telling him. It's not going to kill anybody. Just another tool.
