I flew this same route in Jan. with a QX CRJ-700. It was a very good flight and a very good aircraft. I am suprised AS is going to fly MD-80's on the route. Does AS fly to Boise from any other cities. When I was in BOI all I saw was QX aircraft.

I was looking through SABRE today and apparently AS hasn't updated the flight in SABRE yet....Which is uncommon for them (they are usually on top of that)....Perhaps EA CO AS can shed some light on this????

I'm guessing it's based on the timing of the press release. It was released internally around 3:30pm on Friday, and the guys in scheduling have had so much on their plate lately (new Orlando service, a 2nd Newark flight, LAX-RNO, ANC-YVR) that they probably simply overlooked sending the schedule change through.
Odds are it'll be updated no later than Monday. AS usually doesn't like to publish a schedule in Sabre prior to a press release being sent, though. It's done that way to avoid telegraphing their intentions any earlier than absolutely necessary, although the Orlando announcement was such a non-surprise that the schedule had been published in Sabre about 8 hours prior to the official press release being sent.

Just read the employee newspaper (the March 7th Alaska's World) where it talks about all the new flights and schedule changes and looks like something slipped in which hasn't yet been announced or put in Sabre. Looks like Alaska will take over Horizons PDX-DEN flights starting June 8th. This means that Horizon will no longer be in Denver. It did say that QX might return in the fall so it might just be a seasonal adjustment. No info on type of equipment Alaska might use on the route.
