Nevada – Frustrated Allegiant Air passengers spent 5 hours on tarmac in Vegas.
Dustin Kaelberer said he boarded the first plane at 10:30 a.m., expecting an 11:10 a.m. departure for Phoenix.
He said the first plane was pushed back and sat on the tarmac for about 45 minutes before it was pulled back to the terminal, but the passengers did not get off the aircraft.
The first plane was pushed back a second time and again sat on the tarmac for about a half hour before it was pulled back to the terminal, he said. This time the passengers were allowed to exit.
About 40 minutes later, the passengers boarded a second plane, pushed back and again sat on the tarmac for about a half hour, Kaelberer said.
He said the second plane was pulled back to the terminal, and passengers were kept on the plane. He said about an hour after boarding the second plane, it was pushed back and finally took off for Phoenix.
Kaelberer said that while stuck on the plane, there was no air and several passengers became ill. He said some passengers even asked for water, and they were told there was no water on the airplane.
“People were getting nose bleeds, they were throwing up in the bathrooms because of the heat,” Kaelberer told KVVU. Full Article
