The point is not their business model. The post was regarding a strike. I know their model well. Even fundamentally, they are an airline.
In that sense you are right but the "airline" segment of the company is merely a component of the total product. Allegiant is a really package tour company, similar to European all-inclusive operators such as TUI. My point is that Allegiant doesn't operate like a traditional US carrier.
They are in fact an airline. Which means they are governed by airline labor law. Which means they will never, ever be released to strike.
You are a moron. There is no strike coming. These idiot pilots will never be released by the NMB. Ever.
Keep dreaming. You're not working for an airline but a travel company. I'm not anti-union but if that's the game you want to play you had better find work with an airline.
When, we can't say for sure. But there will definitely be a pilots strike! The losses will pile up, forcing this antiunion company to give in to each and every demand of the pilots. It is so awesome! Kudos to the courageous pilots of Allegiant. You will set an example for labor throughout the airline industry leading to a new era of union power!
Squeeze the people to make more money and make investors happy.
Way to go ALGT.
My advice - Make money on ALGT stock. Spend your money on a luxury airline.
