Okay, so I have been bad with TRs but here is a quick one that I took today. I flew AS from SNA-SEA on Labor Day (2009) after an extended weekend/soccer tourney in Orange County.

Alaska Airlines 503, AS503
SNA-SEA
September 7, 2009
Boeing 737-890, N587AS
Departing @ 12:10PM
Arriving @ 2:21PM
Seat 2F, First Class

I arrived at SNA about an hour before departure, printed my BP at a kiosk, went into the priority security line, was at the gate 45 min prior to departure and sat down at gate 10 at SNA and waited to board. Boarding started exactly at 30 min before (11:30AM) for this 737-800 (originally a 737-700), with preboards (little kids - half the plane) followed by Golds and First Class. The flight was packed with families coming home from Disneyland so it was a bit hectic boarding but we were soon on our way. Flying time today was a short 2 hours 11 minutes. Service was friendly, drinks were always filled, and the snack was a veggie plate with hummus and a salad. It was enough for this short plate and mucho welcome over the stupid chicken skewer + salad combo thing that I’ve been encountering. Picture will be included. The flight went very smooth and we touched down early in a cold, gray, rainy Seattle. Shocker? No. I headed to the Board Room to wait for my ride and had some soup and a coffee. I got home and then realized I might have swine. Hellooo fever… Anyhow, enjoy?

Oh, and notice the guy with his nasty foot behind me, he kept putting it on my armrest and finally I told him to faak off (politely). There are also pictures of the California wildfires in here, in case you were interested. (Also a picture overflying LGB for those airport spotters.) I have quite a few pictures of downtown Seattle from the approach too, because I guess I was just a tit too click happy.

Nice report! What's up with the foot in AS F? Very cool. I'm thinking to do a West Coast city-hopping trip on my spring break, so whichever's cheaper  Smile

Did you use some photos from your personal library? A couple of the cabin shots had pillows and blankets on board which were removed from AS several months ago. Also, one of your cabin shots is a -700, not an -800 (notice the lack of adjustable head rests in main cabin and two overwing exits as opposed to four). I'm not trying to nit-pick, I'm just stating my observations. Nice pictures of downtown Seattle and the Boardroom...

I'm glad AS went back to the crudites plate from the snake basket. The basket was a bit too much like a vending machine, while the crudites plate is a bit more classy. Good to hear you enjoyed the hummus.

Thanks for posting!

Yes, I did use photos from previous TRs. I figured no one would care, but you, you noticed...

Yeah, trust me, I know all about the configs of AS 737 cabins haha. I don't feel the need to take more pictures of the cabin than I already have. I figure If anyone has seen my past TRs you know what the AS cabin looks like. The point is that the F seats are the same on the 73G and 738 so I can post pictures of both cabins  Smile

It was really greasy, I don't know why...but that salad dressing was awesome!

Thanks, I really liked them.

Haha well most of my TRs I write are on AS because they aren't that well of a covered airline. I really like flying on AS because they treat their gold FFers really well (Lunches with execs, cookies at christmas, special recognition, free drink in coach, etc.)

Mark, if you actually read it, you would understand.  Silly West Coast city-hopping? No such thing. You need at least 2 days in each city  Wink

If you take too many pictures, it can get awkward when people see you take them, but other than that, it just makes my iPhoto bigger  Smile

Yeah, that snake basket was scary!  duck 

I don't remember them having the snack basket on daytime SoCal-SEA flights in the past year. I hated the basket and the mess it left behind. Yeah, AS discontinued the basket for the veggie plate so that's a good thing. I took the 7:30 PM dept down to SNA and the FA told me that they replaced the basket with a spicy chicken sandwich and salad. She gave me an extra "slider" to feed my food baby so that was nice.
