Alaska Airlines DCA Slot

Tue Sep 18, 2001 4:35 pm

With AS just being granted with a prized DCA slot they couldn't even use it once, the ANC-SEA-DCA service had not yet started right?

Will they go to Dulles instead or just let the new route drop?

Somebody must be on the same wavelength as me.
I was wondering the same thing. I was also curious about what Frontier, National and ATA are doing, since they don't fly into IAD already.

It is my understaning that Alaska fleww the route for about a week before the attack. I believe they started the route on Sept.4. I could be wrong, but feel sure that was the start up date.

They will resume service on that route after DCA is reopened.

Which it will be (he said, from way out there on the creaky limb...)
...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...
