I've noticed that lately Allegiant's LAN-SFB flights have been operated on the MD83 (instead of the MD87 as scheduled). When I fly on them next Thursday, will the flight most likely be on an MD83 or MD87? Thanks.
I'm beginning to wonder if G4 is using the MD-87's as test airplanes to see what the traffic is like. Then, they are replaced with higher-capacity MD-83's. I kind of wish they would obtain additional MD-87's. But that's just a personal thought.
The MD-83 is used as a spare, or if it hasn't flown for a few days then they will let one of the 87's sit for a day. Last week one of the 87's was down for maintence so they had to use the 83. It has nothing to do with passenger traffic.
