Passengers on Allegiant Air Flight 714 from Florida to Kentucky, were given a pleasant surprise on Friday when the airline announced they would all be getting refunds on their airfare, USA Today reported. 

The refunds are in honor of “Tax Day,” the national deadline for filing taxes, the newspaper said. This year’s deadline is April 18 rather than the usual  April 15.
