So much better! Glad you agree my friend :)
Maybe you and I will catch the same flight ;) I’m hoping to fly it on soon, if anyone knows when that is.
I have no idea if I will be flying Alaska soon. They are mainly on the West Coast, so hard to catch an Alaska flight from Dallas, especially on the new A320. But boy that would be splendid if we did! :)
Probably wouldn’t recognize you though lol
It’s about $70-$80 on average for a one way ticket from Denver to Seattle so I hope they offer at least once the 320 from SEA - DEN.
Yes, because acquiring aircraft through a merger is betrayal…
Alaska Airlines have said they do not plan on keeping the A320 family in the fleet. They will receive everything that virgin had on order, then they will begin to phase out the aircraft. The Alaska livery on this plane while it looks great, will not be around long. Hopefully, this is a bit of pain medication for the Boeing fans.
I believe that is no longer correct. I talked to a Virgin america pilot that said their unions pushed to keep the Airbuses and that because AS wants to grow so much, they’ll need to keep the Airbuses in the fleet to operate their growth
Mmmhmm, that is an interesting decision. I will look it up, but that does make sense. Thanks for the heads-up.
Honestly I’ve seen quite a few people bashing on this plane (on insta) because it looks “ugly”. To me this is one of the most beautiful narrow bodies I have ever seen!
That is a beautiful livery, but it’s interesting to see Alaska operating an Airbus aircaft.
I hope so hard they keep it in their fleet.
Wow, never thought this is going to happen before VX and AS merge. Looks great tho xD
Those Aircraft came from Virgin America didn’t they?
Am I mean in saying that livery should not be on that plane? Just doesn’t fit tbh
I agree with Andrew, it looks so much better on the 737. To me it looks like an unnatural fit on this aircraft. As said above a different shot angle would have been good.
I have to agree with Ed who agrees with Andrew 😂 a better shot angle would be better and the livery suits 737’s to me…
If Alaska don’t keep the aircraft they are just wasting money for the sake of having Boeing aircraft. They are just silly.
Yeah what’s the point of the merger then if they didn’t
They wanted to kill off everyone’s favourite cool airline 🤬
