Remembering Erin

Dear Fellow TWU 577 Members, 
 
It is with heavy hearts we receive the news of the tragic passing of one of our flying partners, Erin McKay. Speaking with many of her coworkers the sentiment is always the same; she was always excited to be at work, had a smile on her face and was someone you always wanted to work with and be around.
 
We thank Allegiant Management for the touching sentiments and for sharing her family’s words with all of us. We encourage all to refer to the Company email titled "In Memory of Erin McKay” for service details and to send condolences.
 
In Memory of Erin McKay
 
Your TWU Local 577 Sisters and Brothers
