1 April 2015 After two and half years of negotiations not going anywhere, 500 Allegiant pilots choose strike action. Knee jerk reaction to announcement by Allegiant suing pilot union. Does this union have deep pockets?

250 flights to be grounded that's 33,000 passengers you will be competing with.
Allegiant management in court trying to get strike deemed illegal.
Low cost popular airline is based in Las Vegas and has a significant fan following. You just cant beat its prices.
I have doubt that this airline can organize its staff to give the heads up to its thousands of passengers who are traveling this week in time. Does management have the smarts to organize mass re-routing of thousands of passengers on competing airlines?
If you are flying Thursday, stay in touch with them over Facebook, SMS, phone etc.
Make sure you have room on your credit card for added expenses. You could very well end up paying for another flight with another airline for convenience and you know that's going to hurt
. See which other airline goes to your destination from your airport, be ready.
Spirit Airlines and Virgin might put on extra flights/seats if strike lingers on. They will be watched for price gouging.
Do you really have to bring luggage?
Over seeing negotiations is National mediation Board. They have asked all parties back to the negotiation table April 29 - May 1st.
