Received reply today.

There was no turbulence at all coming into SEA.

Wow, not the answer I was expecting.
(DC not offered)
I guess this is the “new”Alaska Airlines, going forward.
I would let AS know that I was filing an official complaint with the FAA about the safety violations and then I would figure out how to do it. The lack of collection of items (barring an emergency) is an FAA violation. The FA could be personally fined for ignoring FAA regulations.

5/22 AS 764 PDX - DCA

Same choice between the omelet or spring bowl that they’ve had for awhile now. Luckily, I was seated at the bulkhead and snagged the omelet; they ran out by row 2

I will be flying tomorrow on a PHX-SEA "dinner" flight in F. What type of meal will it likely be? Is it the choice of sandwich/chips vs protein plate?

I haven't flown on Alaska too much - they serve the drinks in plastic in first class?

Most likely it will be what you listed above. The only variation will be if it is roast beef or turkey. This seems to be the norm for western US flights. Same items offered for Lunch also.
Please report back to us what was offered.

Make sure to write in about this. They do forward these types of complaints to the catering department. If they haven't signed some long contract, they may change it back based on customer feedback.

AS704 / SEA-STL / 5:55pm departure / Dinner
No menu, preordered 14 days before flight

Flight started with a PDB offering of sparkling wine or OJ



This was a pretty tasty dish. Certainly better than what you’ll get on any other domestic airline, but not the best I’ve had from Alaska.

Frequent passes were made for drink refills throughout the flight. Warm cookie about 30 minutes after the meal, snack basket shortly before starting our descent, and mints as we deplaned.

5/24
PHX-SEA
AS #649 at 7:30pm
Dinner

As expected, it was a choice between the Protein Plate and a "Chicken Bacon" sandwich and chips. I had the sandwich which was better than expected. Later in the flight, the FA came by with the snack basket. Overall, it was a bit disappointing for a 3 hours flight. It reminded of the BoB menu in coach, rather then something special for F. It was definitely a step down from their previous F meal service on this route.

5/27
SEA-PHX
AS #646 at 3:30pm
Lunch

The meal service was a choice between the Protein Plate and a Roast Beef and Cheese sandwich with chips. For a 3:30pm flight, this snack was sufficient. I had the protein plate, which could have used a package of crackers along with the pita. The hummus was actual good. Later in the flight, the FA came around with the snack basket.

Overall thoughts: Service was so-so on the outbound, much better on the return. The meal service was fine for a light snack service or a Bay Area-SEA flight, which was fine mid-afternoon but not for "Dinner". Dinner should have another component to the meal, maybe an enhanced dessert (such as a hot baked cookie like AA) for 3 hour flights.

5/28 AS 1202 SFO-ORD Lunch


Herb roasted chicken breast with asparagus, artichoke hearts, mashed potatoes and leeks, and lemon caper sauce on side. Everything was delicious and perfectly cooked!

The usual chocolate chip cookie. F/A did not warm it up because he claimed it would "turn into mush."

Friendly and attentive service on this flight. Flew same flight a few months ago and had the exact same flight attendant serving the F cabin! Once again, there was no offer of warm nuts or the snack basket. It was my first time on a reconfigured A320, so I was looking forward to testing out the satellite WiFi to see how the connection speed compared. Ended up being a moot point since the WiFi did not work the entire flight for any passengers.
