Alaska Airline route suggestions (short-long haul)

Alaska Airlines is my favorite airline and wanted to get others excited about flying this airline in IF.

Alaska Airlines started as McGee Airways in 1932 with one route (Anchorage to Bristol Bay) and a single three passenger plane. By 2018, Alaska Airlines was serving 118 destinations with 318 aircraft and over 900 daily departures. The airline flew over 33 million people in 2017.

Airline hubs:
Anchorage, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle (home base)

You could possibly post those all here ;)

Anyways, great thread! Nice and organized! Might try some of these soon

SJO is MROC, just so they all are ICAO. 😉

They actually use the Embraer E175 for this route.

Checked flightaware, it’s all 737-800.

Maybe it’s a seasonal thing.

@Infinite_Flight_Dude Flight Aware has the right 737-800. One example: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/ASA240/history/20180620/1745Z/KLAX/MMMX but they may use the E175 too.

SMF-KOA is starting Dec 20th

Yeah, they use the E175 and 737 on this route. I’ve spotted the E175 doing this route.
