SEA-PDX up to 4 mainline???

Looking at alaskaair.com, I noticed for next Monday that there are now 4 mainline flights going between SEA-PDX. I didn't realize Alaska had upped it to 4. Was this announced? Just temporary?

Here are the flights I see on the website-
  • AS412 06:30 (737-800)
  • AS422 17:15 (B737-700)
  • AS420 21:00 (B737-900)
  • AS414 22:30 (B737-800)


Also, interesting at least to me, I asked a week ago to be moved from the AS414 PDX-SEA flight to the QX flight and hour(ish) earlier, and the QX gate agent was surprised & confused, as he didn't even realize there was any AS flights between PDX/SEA.

Just picked a couple of random dates next month (September 4th and 6th)....still only one mainline flight each way at the usual times.

See this thread:

In particular, look at post 25:
Hi -

I thought I would bump this up. I was looking at August and noticed that they now have 4 mainline flights:

PDX - SEA ---------------------------------- SEA - PDX

#423 - 0700-0744 ----------------------- #412 - 0630-0723

#411 - 0915-1008 ----------------------- #422 - 1715-1803

#403 - 1915-2005 ----------------------- #420 - 2100-2148

#421 - 2245-2333 ----------------------- #414 - 2230-2318

Nice to have!

I think they were just temporary adds for the busy summer months.

Would make sense and just before Labor Day is busy as can be in PDX and SEA areas.

I think it is because they finally realize customers have the Q400's (at least I do).

Have?

Yes Q400 does have free beer & wine

But probably need to move some airframes around.

Hasn't there been a discussion around the forum that AS has run out of room for RON frames at SEA...and PDX is a good place to park them until they are needed again up the road?

May as well fly them to PDX and let the Q400s be elsewhere?

I think he meant "hate". Although, I don't agree.

You haven't arrived until one of your posts is deleted by a moderator.

On another forum, you're Platinum after you get suspended and then it is overturned.

Fortunately, spirited discussion is quite welcome here. ^
