That airline is constantly late or having mechanical issues. Their aircraft are all old and used that real airlines would not used. You know the old saying: You get what you pay for. Personally I would never set foot on their planes.

Why on Earth would this be such an issue on a return flight when there were no issues on the flight there? I think that its ridiculous the way some seniors are treated these days. The fact that the passengers already had to wait on a delayed flight then for your misfortune to be a longer delay. I could only imagine the humiliation you felt for you being the reason. Especially, since it wasn't an issue getting there. I would at least seek some sort of justification for their actions. Even if its just an apology. This needs to be brought to someone's attention. A one finger wave on the way out may not of been so bad!

Allegiant should be ashamed. I do hope you go further with this story. Glad you made it home.

Well a couple more days in FL and really no harm done. Maybe you could a spent more than a second to learn what you needed to do to carry the oxygen on the plane. Putting the doctors orders in your luggage makes you the one in the wrong, not the airline.

Contact a lawyer. You could be the next owner of that airline. Atleast I hope you are. Good luck to you!

Cheap prices and poor service is why I refuse to fly me and mine out of the Vienna Airport. Things like this don't happen at AKC, PIT, or CLE where there are professionals.

Two things: Initially why anyone put a Doctor's permission slip in their luggage? I would she would carry with her>

Also People with Oxygen is a normal thing, people have in stores, parks, everywhere you go and I don't think its the first time Alligent had an Oxygen customer,
