I love that picture. The Minneapolis skyline looks great, too.

Officially, I don’t think so. Unofficially, definitely.

If I may ask, where was she based? Anchorage? Seattle? Minneapolis?

She was ofc based in Bangkok, as they did operate flights to there from Narita.

Yep. It’s interesting how their flights to Asia progressed. They have always connected Minneapolis (their home) to Asia, but with varying numbers of stops. It used to be a Minneapolis-Winnipeg-Anchorage-some other Alaskan city I forgot- Tokyo/Osaka wherever else thing, but it was eventually shortened to a Minneapolis-Anchorage-Asia thing, then down to a Minneapolis-Asia route.
