FAQ's

What is ASAP?


ASAP is primarily a platform that is provided to Flight Attendants to self disclose safety regulation compliance violations and to provide the company with recommendations for improvements.




What are ASAP reports used for?


ASAP reports are mainly used for self-reporting. The ASAP program gives the reporter protection in the event they unintentionally violated a FAR or Company Policy. It can also be used to report safety concerns and/or suggestions with the intent to improve Allegiant’s overall safety.




Can you give me an example of what would be an appropriate situation to write an ASAP?


Some examples of what an ASAP report could be, but not limited to, include:

  • Disarming door on an active taxi way
  • Accidentally opening the cockpit door during flight without taking out a service cart
  • Piggybacking through a SIDA area without badging through
  • Flying without your FAM, company badge, passport, etc.
  • Forgetting to brief responsible exit rows
  • Using an inoperable piece of equipment
  • Not conducting preflight correctly

All of these examples would be situations where a crew member unknowingly violated a company policy or FAR.




What steps to take if you feel you have been exposed in a toxic fume event?


  • Notify your supervisor and crew services
  • contact PC365 at 855-272-3910 immediately and let them know you have been involved in a toxic air event and explain your symptoms
  • PC365 will direct you to Seek medical attention or do home care
    • Individuals may experience delayed side effects after a toxic fume exposure. Remember you have 24 hours from the time of the event to report an OJI and seek medical attention.
  • File a smoke/odor/fumes safety report through airSMS.
