the point is...the field was NOTAM'ed to be closed, they did have fuel to divert when they arrived over the destination...they chose to hold and "bargain" shall we say with ATC to try and hide the fact they took off and headed there in the first place...something the both of them would have hung out to dry any of their line pilots for doing....

Grrr The Truth

The FAA has known about the problems for a long time but looked the other way.
After National shutdown the Vegas FSDO had a major coup getting AAY from the FAT FSDO. The issues have been apparent from day one. MG has long history in the airline biz and everyone knows his time at Valu. I do not blame any of the crews but AAY should have been shutdown years ago. There are no excuses by management or the FAA why this CONTINUES to happen.

It does seem an accident with loss of life is almost imminent. The lawsuits will be huge. How will they explain there way out of it. If anyone flies on AAY you must be crazy.

I've flown on AAY a lot -- they go where I need to go.

But I'm not surprised that their disorganized systems and total disregard for customer service at their gate functions, and nonexistent telephone customer service, has migrated to airside "issues".

Until recently, their cabin and flight crews were a refreshing relief from the majors. However, eventually their business model will catch up with them. I hope it does not require a serious incident.

I'm familiar with the area.

GFK is 15-20 minutes from FAR at 3000 feet on an MD-80. They could've set up for a sweet 79 mile final. At worst they could've gone to Bemidji, which is around 50 miles away different runway headings, or to MSP.

This is ValuJet all over again, with the same dolts who ran that company.

FAA scolds Allegiant for having to make emergency landing with low fuel

The Federal Aviation Administration has scolded Allegiant Air for an emergency landing at a closed airport in Fargo, N.D., in a ruling that appears to contradict the airline's statements about the flight. The FAA issued a reprimand called a "letter of correction" to the Las Vegas-based airline saying the July 23 flight from Las Vegas to Fargo "did not appear to have adequate fuel" for such a trip, according to information released this week.
