Allegiant air left around 200 passengers stranded in Las Vegas on Sunday night after they cancelled their outbound flight to Oklahoma City.
After boarding the aircraft (McDonnell Douglas MD-83), passengers were deplaned due to mechanical issues with the aircraft and informed that their next flight will be on Tuesday.
Passengers then received an email from the Las Vegas-based airline saying they would receive a check for $300 in the next seven to ten business days, and if they chose not to rebook with Allegiant, the flight would be refunded.
In interviews with the stranded passengers, it was reported that they received no vouchers for food, hotels, rental cars. Additionally, the passengers were reportedly turned away by Allegiant staff at the airport and were told that security would be called if they did not leave the desk.
With all of the rental cars at the airport booked, many passengers were forced to pay $1,500 to make it back home to Oklahoma.
