One thought on “Allegiant Air

  1. My wife and I recently traveled with Allegiant. In the future, we plan on travelling with you again, and we may also bring along our dog. I see the requirements to bring a dog on board. However, on several occasions I noticed dogs being taken on and from the ship on leash and not in a carrier. If not in a carrier, are there any special requirements or limitations?
