Allegiant Earnings Report; Plans to Add Seats to MD-80s


Allegiant Air "closed out 2010 with its 32nd straight profitable quarter and an 18.9 percent increase in revenue for the year, but a 13.9 percent decline in earnings over 2009."

That's according to the Las Vegas Sun. Reporting on the airline's recent conference call with investors, the paper notes that Allegiant plans to " add seats on every plane in its fleet of 51 MD-80 jets." The paper doesn't say so, but we've heard on the grapevine that the airline will add 15 seats to each plane.

Of course, what Allegiant fans really want to know about is the future Hawaii service. On this, the airline is still vague: "The airline announced last year that it would fly to Hawaii from the West Coast with the planes [newly acquired 757s], but hasn’t given any details about what cities would be served.
