Passengers sweat it out on Allegiant Air delay

PHOENIX -- Allegiant Airlines says Arizona's summer heat can increase mechanical issues.

That appears to be the case on a flight this week out of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

KTVK-TV reports that more than 150 passengers on an Allegiant plane were forced to sweat it out for 2 1/2 hours Wednesday after a maintenance issue left the plane without air conditioning.

Despite being at the gate, the TV station says passengers were forced to stay in their seats.

There was no report of any injuries to the passengers and it isn't immediately clear where the delayed flight was headed.

A call Friday to Las Vegas-based Allegiant for comment wasn't immediately returned.
