05MAR Alaska A320 Send Off @KSEA

Hello there!

Story time.
Virgin America’s merger into Alaska Air in 2018 saw Alaska Air end up with a fleet of A319s, A320s and A321neos. Alaska Air was no longer “proudly all Boeing” as they like to stencil on their 737s. That also began the thoughts of when Alaska would phase out the Airbus fleet. Initially estimates were well into the decade, especially for the A321neo, but times have changed.

The massive fall in passenger demand, thanks to the well-known pandemic, saw the demise of Alaska’A319s. The A320s and A321s soldiered on. However, the timer is getting close to 0 for them. By the time this event happens the A320 of theirs would have been retired.

Even though the A321s will keep going, I’m including them in this event as they don’t have the Alaska livery because we don’t have the NEO variant.

Story time done

The Route

We will be flying Seattle to Los Angeles. As that’s the last route I’ve seen an A320 of theirs do that isn’t to the desert.

FPL will be made on the day of the event, as any flight plan now would probably be out dated due to thing like weather

.

Alaska A320 (I’ll also accept signs ups requesting the Virgin America livery),

@AIDAN101 are you accepting sponsors?

I will not not take this gate

I think he’ll demand you do 😅

which one did you quote? All i see is “VACANT” and then it just takes me up to the main post

I cannot tell if this is some form of reverse psychology or something, but considering you quoted a gate and replied seems to lead me to believe you want it so I’ll get you down

edit: and now that one like and no further comment seems to confirm my thoughts
