Allegiant to Distribute “Personal Health and Safety Kits” to Passengers

Just a day after we wrote about Allegiant Air topping an airline quality study, the carrier is in the news again.

Sun Country Sues the Former Delta Ground Services

Unifi — formerly known as Delta Ground Services — was sued by Sun Country Airlines.
