No flights to Atlanta after Jan 14?

I guess I missed the announcement. Is this a retreat in the war with Delta?

Wow... good question. PDX-ATL also appears to be discontinued after 01/14, but I was looking at SEA-SAN a few hours ago and Alaskaair.com wasn't showing nonstop options at that time, but they are displaying again now so I chalk that up to another IT/Sabre glitch. A check of http://matrix.itasoftware.com/ is showing no nonstop flights between SEA/PDX and ATL after the 14th.

Apparently you are correct, rwinn...I just called Alaska and they said they are still flying to Atlanta and there is an "emergency schedule update" currently running that is correcting all kinds of problems. Phew!

I'm glad to hear that! It would be a bummer for ATL service to end... It would be nice to see a tweet or some kind of notice from Alaskaair.com, but hopefully the schedule change process will be completed soon.

I just went real quick to check our PDX/ATL flight for May - not only were they there, but they went DOWN - a LOT!!! To $298 RT! Thank you!

ATL-PDX Discontinued :-(

On my ATL-PDX flight Sunday night both the cabin crew and captain announced that PDX-ATL is being suspended and that we should write to AS to let them know we wanted it to remain on the schedule.

Anyone know when this goes into effect? I often go ATL-PDX-SEA because it's much cheaper than ATL-SEA and for the added mileage... it'll be a shame to see it go and might keep me off of AS metal to SEA due to the price of ATL-SEA direct compared to DL.

If that is how they are selling many of their seats, i.e., not O/D PDX/ATL (not that I ever like to see service vanish), it makes perfect sense to discontinue the route.

This statement doesn't help your case much. If they are getting less money, and providing an extra flight for you to get to a destination already served nonstop, it doesn't reflect well of the economics of that route for AS.

Sounds like ATL-PDX is not profitable if you're finding much lower fares using that flight! So, it would make sense that it be discontinued.

I'm not making a case for the flight... I'm saying that I'll miss it.

I'm sure there are plenty of deals out there that you guys would understand the poor economics of but still miss if they went away... you guys are starting to sound like the DL forum that I tried to escape from to AS!
