A question about how Allegiant Air was doing came up this weekend on the thread about Fresno and Southwest. Today's Fresno newspaper had this short article about Allegiant.

Fresno-based carrier Allegiant Air, which operates charters and regularly scheduled passenger service, is having a busy summer.

In addition to its regular flights to Las Vegas and casino junkets to other places, the airline has been the charter carrier of choice for the U.S. Forest Service, which needs the airline to ship firefighters to hot spots across the nation.

Allegiant has transported fire crews to about a dozen spots this summer, including trips from Missoula, Mont., to Moses Lake, Wash., on Friday and from Medford, Ore., to Asheville, N.C., on Saturday, said Mark Peterson, an Allegiant spokesman.

The airline has packed the fire crews into its new MD-87 aircraft, which carry 130 passengers and can fly cross-country on a single tank of fuel. Some of the calls have come in suddenly and require Allegiant to get a plane in the air on the same day.

In a related matter, Allegiant reached a milestone Sunday: Every seat on every flight was full, which was a first for the 4-year-old company. Peterson said all seats on the five flights between Las Vegas, Fresno and Colorado Springs, Colo., were booked.
