Low-Cost Allegiant Airlines Defends Maintenance Record

Spohrer Dodd

“…My legs were up in the air, you’re all turned around, my totes on this shoulder, my body is going this way, and it was a complete mess,” Morin said of her 2015 evacuation. She didn’t know about the history of Allegiant’s maintenance failures.

Now, she says she’s dealing with medical problems and has to walk with a cane. Her attorney, Bob Spohrer, says he doesn’t expect a lawsuit but believes his client Joan Morin is entitled to restitution for her injuries.

“We are having a conversation with the insurance carrier for Allegaint Airlines. My prediction is a lawsuit is not going to be necessary,” he said.

No matter what happens, she says she’ll never fly the low cost carrier again.

“Never,” Morin said. “It could be free. It’s not worth it.”
