I'm saying allegiant's maintenance is not as good as UA's or AA's so its not as good in the snow as a C5 E145XR (I do prefer Boeing)
That is a ridiculous comment. All the airlines have contract maintenance service provider at outstations like ROC. As far as in base maintenance, much of the heavy checks are outsourced overseas or contract hubs like MIA or IND anyway. You may have a small claim that a carrier like AA may, in fact, perform more frequent or preventive maintenance than a carrier like G4 or NK. However, I think the far larger cause for unreliable aircraft is simply their age and/or complexity, not the skill set of the individual maintenance workers.
That's, what I'm trying to say, because of the old age maintenance, isn't as easy as it was 5 years ago and the ice and snow cant help.
