DOT’s Aviation Enforcement Office found that during the summer months of 2016 and 2017, Allegiant Air failed to provide passengers a comfortable cabin temperature on 10 flights delayed on the tarmac at airports in Las Vegas, Nev.; El Paso, Texas; Dayton, Ohio; and Albuquerque, N.M.

In one of these instances, Allegiant did not provide food and water to passengers in a timely manner or announce to passengers that they had an opportunity to deplane, as required by DOT rules.
