Good to see AS expanding their summer services out of PDX including the launch of PDX-SBA service.

I assume that all of these seasonal flights from PDX are operating with Q400's?

Looks like the PDX-SBA service will operate with a SkyWest CRJ 700. This service actually operated a few years back....so technically it's not "new". It went nonstop for awhile (CRJ) originating in SEA, and then was operated via SMF (Q400) before it was pulled all together. Whenever I rode it, it always had healthy loads.

This is great news, PDX-BLI is overdue.

Can't imagine the Santa Barbara route has a ton of demand, but what do I know.

Love it

They flew this route last summer. The times suck this year...

I flew this route back in the late 80's sometime on a San Juan Airlines Beech 99, I always wondered why it was never flown by anyone else since then. Our flight was YVR-BLI-PDX, pre-cleared in YVR.

It is good to see PDX get some joy. I wonder how many of these flights will have a DL (or other) code share designation.

Can I have a mojito on this flight?

A little off the subject... Does Alaska/Skywest product still serve free beer and wine on the flights?

All this with the recently announced return to LGB from PDX, and it seems AS is starting to give us some real loving, IIRC it's been a while since PDX got some decent increases from AS, since Hawaii started I think.

Yes. The OO service is identical to QX's and I imagine that would be the case if AS ever contracted with any other regional in the future.

I was just wondering since I haven't had the opportunity to try the CRJ service since the switch.

Bozeman is beautiful! Just about the cutest terminal you've ever seen...have even seen it in movies. BZN is the gateway to Yellowstone Nat'l Park. Drive SE through Livingston and spend a night in Gardiner, MT...it's just across the park boundary from Mammoth Hot Springs. We did a loop through the park, spending the next night in Jackson, WY before driving back north on the west side of the park into West Yellowstone on our return to BZN. It was a fantastic trip!
