Hi all, I was driving past ATL this morning and at 6:36am/Eastern and I swear an Alaska Airlines 737 took off from Runway 26R (Northern runway). I looked on Flightaware but did not see anything. I swear the Eskimo was grinning from ear to ear...sure wish he flew into ATL daily! Any ideas or was I just still half asleep?

Concur. The only departures that are listed on FlightAware around that timeframe were an F9 A319, a NW A319, an AA MD-80, and a Shuttle America E-170.

My thought is that you were half asleep and mistook a Frontier A319 for an AS 737. Anyone know which a/c operated FFT851 today? To me, Larry The Lynx does bear a resemblance to the AS Eskimo:

Thanks I just checked Frontier Flifo and it was the arctic wolf tail...do not know his name but I bet that is what I saw. Sorry about the mistake.

Nothing noted in Irregular Ops

Some unusual cities will be seeing AS this year with the pick up of the Seattle Mariners contract. However I do not think we are doing the long haul service, just short to medium.
