Candidates up in the air

Presidential candidates Gov. George W. Bush and Sen. Bill Bradley have made Allegiant Air their airline of choice.

“Since we’re considered No. 1 for charter airlines, we were contacted by both candidates,” said Jim Patterson, president of Allegiant Air. “We have set out to provide top-notch service with hot meals and china dishware.”

Although the airline has a tight schedule, it accommodates the candidates whenever possible. A DC-9 jet recently took Bradley from the Bay Area to Atlantic City, N.J., and then on to New York. Bush was flown from Columbia, S.C., to Grand Rapids, Mich., and then to Detroit.
