Allegiant Air has achieved a $93 million loss for their second quarter as they furlough 275 pilots in response to this loss. The airline is still trying to remain flexible which they believe will help them get through the pandemic. Their normal passenger numbers are still down 50% since the airline is more of a leisure airline meaning they try to appeal to the people who are looking for a holiday so business travellers don’t really affect them but since people aren’t travelling for holidays it affects the airline greatly.

Other plans are that the airline plans to retire seven of their A320s but if demand improves they have outlined the need to acquire more aircraft. One method is buying second hand aircraft which is cheaper and is nothing new for Allegiant.
