Allegiant Air pilot strike could have impact on Bellingham flights

It appears Allegiant Air pilots are prepared to strike starting at midnight on Thursday, April 2. Here’s a link to a Bloomberg News article giving the details; The Las Vegas Review-Journal is also on top of this story.

Allegiant Air has set up a web page to provide updated information and links to the status of upcoming flights.

As of this afternoon, it appears the pilots will strike at Allegiant’s biggest hubs, including Las Vegas and Phoenix. Here’s a link to the union announcement about where they plan to strike. That could impact flights out of Bellingham if the strike does drag on, particularly if those planes don’t return from Las Vegas and Phoenix/Mesa.

According to the Allegiant Air’s flight status webpage, flights scheduled to leave Bellingham on Thursday include three flights to Las Vegas, one to Phoenix, one to Los Angeles and one to Palm Springs, Calif.
