Will Alaska Airlines SEA-MIA Runs Go To 738's?

I've heard that Alaska will eventually use 738's on the SEA-MIA runs, replacing 73G's and 739's. I am flying on AS from SEA-MIA on March 27th, so I am curious.

Also, I am flying in First through on a miles award ticket, does this allow access to the Board Room?

According to Alaska's website, on the 27th it will be a 739. I'm curious if they've recieved the second 738 yet, because from what I know, it is supposed to be used on FAI-SEA-DCA and back.

To answer your question, yes! When, not by March 27th. Actually I'm thinking another year of 739/73G service to MIA. The first 738 (N546AS) as most know is operating SEA-EWR. The second (N549AS) one will operate SEA-DCA. Florida service is high on the 738 list, but we won't have a 3rd -800 online till this fall. That will be the soonest you see it scheduled to MIA. Most days the -900 is authorized to 16/144, the same count as the -800, so I'd prefer the -900. Then you know there will be some open seats around you.

You could get lucky and get it swapped in. The -800 did BOS and MCO last week.

I've heard that Alaska is getting good loads in their SEA-MIA route. It would be cool to see their 738 with winglets down here in MIA.

AA used to fly the route with 763s, probably too big for the demand, but the 737NGs seem to be just the right size.

Not to crack open a can of worms here..but I heard from their HDQ that HNL might be in the works from SEA using the 738 towards the end of the year. It is like one or two on their short list for expansion.

Flyibaby: Yes, it is a strong rumor. But, a rumor none the less. I heard it would be a ANC-HNL flight. Remember that the current 738 is not ETOPS. So when we see an ETOPS -800 delivered or N546AS made ETOPS, then HNL will be possible.

HNL might be in the works from SEA using the 738 towards the end of the year.

It's a rumor only right now, especially since we have a codeshare agreement in place with HA.

....however, eventually there DOES come a time where it's more costly to sell HNL service to your customers via codeshare than if you flew your own metal there - or so I'm told from our pricing people, anyway.  Smile
