Wondering about an Allegiant flight? Here’s the scoop on compensation

On Friday, Allegiant Air announced it would be cancelling someupcoming flights as it works to inspect emergency slides on many of its MD80 aircraft.

Smartphone users can set up flight alerts that can be sent to their phones. To do that, 1) Go to Allegiant’s website (www.allegiantair.com) and click on “Flight Status” near the upper right side of the screen. 2) Click “Set Flight Alerts” at the left side of the screen. 3) Provide your flights details and mobile phone number. 4) Click “Set Alert.”
