I think will be great as for start by the new nonstop from SEA-MIA/EWR flight by this November 2002. I'm guess that will be another service new nonstop from SEA-FLL and MCO by anytime soon as for near of the future. Well, It should be wait to see about with the more news. See ya!

Destinations I have heard tossed around include MCO, FLL, SLC, COS, ATL, and PHL. Anything is possible, but I do think AS should hold off on long-haul expansion for now. It would be better for them to add second dailies to EWR/BOS/MIA, IMO. (IAD has a second daily already [though is it seasonal], and DCA can't get one without applying for slots, exemptions, etc.).

MAH4546-

Alaska Airlines' SEA-IAD 2X daily service is year-round, not seasonal.

SEA-EWR begins daily nonstop service on 28OCT02.

SEA-MIA begins daily nonstop service on 21NOV02.

The next new routes to be announced will be SEA-PHL (to be announced sometime in October or November), and then SEA-ATL (to be announced after the first of the year).

And no, I can't name my sources...but trust me, they've been right about every single expansion for the last year.

Wish they started PHL now, I am going to the PHL area in a month and a half, so I had to take there ANC-SEA-EWR-SEA-ANC flts.

Glad to see PHL/ATL on there list! But, they should be careful about that fast expansion!

I'd doubt Mexico City will be seeing service from Alaska anytime soon.

Alaska Airlines once served Mexico City, operating daily nonstop service from Ontario, Ca. The ONT-MEX run wasn't making any money, so the route was scrapped. A short time later, AS pulled the plug on their 3X daily LAX-GDL service as well, preferring to focus on leisure travel to the resort destinations in Mexico instead.

While all Mexican destinations have fairly high (and hard-to-predict) no-show factors, AS is able to offset their potential for loss from no-shows by serving resort destinations where they're able to sell a great many of the seats to wholesalers, consolidators, and tour operators. They'll most likely continue to focus on service to resort cities, staying away from the likes of GDL, MEX, etc.

If anything, look for expanded service to CUN in the form of either an additional LAX flight or one from SFO.

The SEA-EWR service will start out using B-737-700 equipment. Look for it to be upgauged to a -900 if the loads justify it.
