Earlier this week, An Allegiant Air flight from Oakland to Provo was delayed 12 hours, which is the same amount of time that it would have taken if the passengers drove.
In a news statement, the company said, the original aircraft scheduled to take the passengers from Oakland to Provo was experiencing steering difficulties.
A replacement plane was sent to the delayed travelers only to discover that the replacement plane was also experiencing maintenance problems.
A third and final plane arrived in Oakland that needed extra fuel before it could take off.
The delayed passengers received vouchers, food and beverages as a consolation.
