Allegiant Travel Company: "Looking forward, we currently see an improving pricing environment. While the economy is in the early stages of a recovery, our segment appears to be returning to revenue norms of past years. Our recently announced contract for additional aircraft should add 13 aircraft to our operating fleet and support our growth through 2011,” Maurice Gallagher Jr, Chairman & CEO.
