Allegiant Air aircraft type changes after landing

This may already have been asked somewhere else…I searched and didn’t see it. If I missed it I apologize.

I have been watching Allegiant Air (AAY) to see how they use their new Airbus aircraft but I have noticed many flights that while in the air show as A319 or A320 but when they land the flight history shows MD80. This doesn’t seem to be an issue on the 757 flights. Any idea why it seems to default back to MD80 in the history? Thanks.

I filed a ticket (#41041) on a developer for this.

If it matters I have also now noticed a couple of flights that left KLAS as 757 but history upon landing shows as MD80. Still seems that the HNL flights remain 757 in the history.

Thanks for opening the ticket.
