Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Alaska Airlines flight AS677 performed a rejected takeoff while attempting to depart from runway 25R at McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, Nevada. The rejected takeoff occurred in accordance with an air traffic control instruction canceling takeoff clearance because of a conflict with Allegiant Airlines flight 588 (AAY588) landing on runway 19L. There was no reported damage to AAY588, but ASA677 incurred a deflated tire after returning to the gate. There were no reported injuries to passengers or crew on either aircraft.

Probable Cause: This incident was caused by failure of the LC2 controller to comply with coordination procedures and runway separation standards. Contributing was the failure of LAS ATCT management to establish procedures requiring positive separation of aircraft operating on converging runways.
