Service to MSP will start Oct 26th and KOA Nov 17th.

Good for AS. Glad they are going to expand east more!

I wonder if they contracted AA to do the handling like they did when they first went into ORD.

Should be interesting to see how this plays out with NW/DL. NW has a sizable presence at SEA and has had a long-time relationship with AS.

I know when AS added ANC-HNL service there was talk of NW adding SEA-ANC service. May not be a big issue though with the merger plans.

Maybe with the merger, Alaska knows something that we dont, and they will be reducing frequency from SEA-MSP.

From the press release

"Horizon Air will discontinue nonstop service between Spokane, Wash., and Sacramento, Calif., effective Sept. 7. The carrier also will replace its twice-daily nonstop service between Spokane and Los Angeles with two daily same-plane, one-stop flights via Boise, Idaho."

Did I miss this in a previous announcement. I saw Orlando and all the Mexico changes before, but not Spokane changes.

This isn't much different then when AS added SEA-DFW. AA still flies that route with 8+ dailies. I don't think much will change. Besides, adding 2 737 flights a day to a market that fills 6 or 7 daily flights with 757s won't make a big dent. If anything, maybe Sun Country will loose here?

Interesting choice for AS (with respect to MSP at least), but good to see more competition. NW has sometimes 11-12x daily frequencies in the summer, all on 752/753 equipment, so the demand is certainly there.

KOA is also a good addition; currently there is no nonstop SEA-KOA service (although there is a one-stop through OGG that is nonstop on the KOA-SEA return, operated by NW).

AS must be doing very well to Hawaii - going from 2x daily to 4x daily in a matter of months, and now serving all major Hawaii airports.

I dont think its THAT big of a deal. Remember, NW and AS are codeshare partners and they have been for years. What is 2 flights a day by AS going to do to NW? Nothing. See: SEA-DFW & AA's 8 daily flights on that route. Again, not a big of a deal.

Not surprised by either new city and very happy about both.

I am waiting to see if IAH becomes the next new spot on AS's route map? I'm thinking out loud but I believe with the MSP service IAH is the last major city out of SEA that only has service with one carrier??

And I'm assuming with HA losing a daily 763 that it's a little harder to get to HNL right now from SEA??? Bet AS would love to have a spare 738 to add another SEA-HNL flight!!!

UA resumed operations in ANC back in February.

I wouldn't hold your breath on waiting to fly a NW B757 from SEA to ANC. The issue with most of the routes from the lower 48 to ANC is a/c availability. The reason CO, UA, US, etc., at least generally speaking, year-round service is that most of the a/c on these routes are RON and therefore can make a 9 hour rountrip to ANC and get back from a mornig launch.

Yes NW does have a/c that RON in SEA but the SEA-ANC market is very well covered by AS. The only way that anyone could make a dent in AS' customer base in ANC is to offer more then one or two flights a day. The reason AS does so well is that this has been a market for them for years. If NW had 5+ flights a day year-round between MSP-ANC then may be but that seems pretty unrealistic with both the distance/time as well as the cost of fuel and dedication of a/c to the route.

Keep in mind that SEA is the closest major US city to ANC. Thus being the first choice of many Alaskans having to make connections.

And please don't add all the summer activity that the non-Alaska Airlines airlines add. THIS IS TOURIST TRAFFIC. If you were to separate out the tourist traffic from the year-round Alaskan traveler there is not a huge demand. The day-to-day ANC or even State of Alaska traffic does vary much from summer to winter. Yes we Alaskans head to Mexico and Hawai'i but considering there is only 675,000 people in the state that doesn't equate to a market. Alaska Airlines satisfies the day-to-day need well.

Just some thoughts.

Every airline has every right to build out of their home hub. Why is AS any different? Delta is an AS partner yet they are adding LAX-ANC. Why aren't we flaming them for doing that when AS already flies there? If anything, this is smarter than most moves because you're still feeding NW traffic in MSP. And I agree with Socalatc...maybe this is a precursor to reduced SEA-MSP frequencies by NW once the merger is complete.

I just don't see why AS should have to defend their route choices when SEA is THEIR hub. If anything we should have said NW should never have been allowed to fly to Hawaii from SEA because AS should have done it first. Great for AS to expand east. Would love to see SLC, DTW, IAH, STL and definitely ATL someday.

If you mean defend their decisions to NW, then I don't know. If you mean defend their decisions to us, I guess I'm missing where anyone is criticising them for adding MSP to their network. If anything, some are only wondering what NW might do, as their track record speaks for itself.

I guess I'm not responding to criticism. I just hear these same questions every time AS goes to a new place. Problem is, there aren't many large cities left without service out of SEA so I don't know where else AS is supposed to go. If anything, this extra capacity should supplement some of their partner flying and bring even more people in to places like MSP as connecting passengers. I don't think AS would go into NW's hub without thinking about their closest partner other than QX first. If they launched 8 times daily service I'd be worried. But AS probably worked it out to see that 2x/day similar to DFW would do nothing but benefit both partner carriers.
