Just Curious....

Has anyone else been on a flight that has had the drawings for cash. I know most of the charter ones have them, but I was on a trip to LV about 2 years ago and was flying Delta when the Pilot asked the flight attendants to collect $5 and $10's from anyone who wanted to spilt the pot. I was stunded because there were children on the plane. I have never seen it again. Maybe this was that pilots last flight.

My friends flew Allegiant last week. Anyone who wanted to could write there seat number on a dollar bill and put it in a sack. They drew out the dollar, called the seat, and that person won all the money. Some other friends and I were on a different airline and they didn't do this.

"Stunded", PUHLEEZE.

Do you really think those poor, defenseless, naive little children are going to be traumatized for life if they see Mommy and Daddy trying to turn a five dollar bill into a "free" nights stay at Bellagio?

If so, then you'd better never ever drag your kids to the supermarket or 7/11 because THOSE places actually sell the dreaded LOTTO tickets, YIKES...

And another thing, don't be driving around the countryside in NC either with your kids, because some of farmers are actually growing TOBACCO...

The Allegiant from Bellingham WA does this. I have never won. But boy that would be pretty sweet. Not even to Vegas yet and winning.

Just to let you critics know, witnessing gambling at high altitudes by undeveloped brains can lead to a disease called “splitting 10’s and taking insurance”, which is developed as an adult. I know it’s true because I read it on the internet.

Sorry to sort of get off topic here, but this question is for Walker04. We are flying Allegiant out of Belllingham next week for the first time. Do you have any issues with this carrier? We are hoping to have a good first experience with them as flying out of Bellingham vs. Vancouver just makes sense for us (cost & proximity). Thanks in advance for any info. btw, I'll definitely be putting my $1 or seat # in any draw they offer on board!

I am flying out of Bellingham with Allegian at the end of July and am curious as to service, any issues I need to be aware of....I understand they are pretty much no frills and thats not a problem cause its a short flight.

Thanks for any advice you can give
