You can certainly ask, but I think the answer will be no. PP is you and then allowed guests (of course if the sign is not out). Do not think they will let you double dip. I joked once about using...

Woke up the other morning, grabbed the phone and it had a "notification" from Alaska Airlines. It was very straight forward, "Your flight xxx has been cancelled, please call....." Ugh! So I pull...

WOW....there is a lot to this post, I would have loved to hear the conversation. Throughout this entire thread we have been told by posters whom I assume are either employed by AS or closely aligned...

There were a few incidents mentioned early this year that involved mainly the Airbus though I do recall a 737-900 with something similar. It was mentioned that it smelled like plastic burning, not...

Outside of a great Horizon flight this past weekend, this has been my usual experience. Water at the seat, plenty of time (in my mind) where they can serve and seemingly choose not to, but once in...

QX 2399 (PDX-SEA) up front in a E75; just put my bag up in the compartment only to turn around to a smiling FA who had an OJ in one hand, sparkling wine in the other and asked which would I like. ...

I thought AS did away with their contract with Menzies and began hiring their own ground crews. Was that only in SEA, PDX or other major "hubs". I can see them contracting at outstations and...

I don't think I have ever seen baggage handlers offloading a plane from the cargo door direct to cart; there is a conveyor belt that transits from the cargo hold to the cart where (usually) the...

I agree with you on the inconsistency of the AS service but have had different experiences with what you brought up:

5/27 SEA-PDX: nothing at seat, no service. Horizon. Overhead lead f/a state to...

I do not think BA have any control over the Tug driver. If anyone was going to pay, it will be the insurance company of whomever is contracted to provide those services.

Well, to be fair to the pilot, HE is not the one backing up, it is the tug driver. The reason why there are wing walkers is to help avoid these type of issues as well as look out for equipment...

I think we can poke holes or find faults in many rules/regs. The issue here is that you comply with the FA (which the OP did). There will always be subjective calls by individuals; passengers and...

I like the points you made, but the sweeping statement of "I have never seen this on AS" does not fit my experience. In F many times when I am taking off my jacket the FA asks if they can hang it up...

This thread seems to be turning into the Virgin faithful (SFO and LAX) versus the Alaska faithful. However, I do agree with this statement above. Much like AS went to the 737 model initially to...

I am not sure if your post is more tongue-in-cheek or a statement of being fed up with air travel for what you get. "Bad" is in the eye of the beholder; no PDB=bad, no lie-flat seats=bad and on and...

This has been discussed somewhat in other threads, but AS went to an all Boeing fleet (particularly the 737 series) in order to streamline maintenance and crews. 737 pilots did not fly MD-90s, but a...

SEA-MSY last week; nothing at the seat until just before the door closed, then small bottles of water handed out. However, I did notice that the catering may have been delayed as just before that,...

On the Q400, is there a 1D? I think the bulkhead row on the right side of the aircraft is 2C/D as there is a storage bin across from row 1. I like 1B however I am OK in 2C/D as there is enough room...
