That's good for them. the 753 has the capacity to take the SEA bound and ANC bound passengers on a larger aircraft.

Airlines can make money flying from ANC with express mail, express shipments, air-freight, and just a few passengers. So, I suspect CO will succeed whether every seat is filled or not.  Smile

Are they selling seats for the SEA-ANC leg or is SEA just a fuel stop?

Typical seasonal service, just for the tourists.

In the fall they will leave, allowing Alaska to continue to screw over Alaskan's with high ticket prices and no competition.

Continental offers year-round service through Seattle to Anchorage with both 757 and 737-800 service and previously through PDX with 737s. Nonstop EWR-ANC 757 service will not be resumed for this summer.

CO and NW really are expanding their 753s on longer routes now. Are CO's 753s ETOPS certified? Should we expect them to go to HNL anytime soon?

CO 753's will not be flying to HNL. One of the main reasons being is that the flight from LAX-HNL needs to be a 767400 due to the fact that that aircraft continues on to GUM, which is out of the range of a 753. Also EWR & IAH are to far for a 753 to fly. CO mainly uses there 753s for high-density routes.

Dont count on CO flying there 753 to HNL....they mostly use the 764 for that. However it is CO we are talking about. They use the 752 over the atlantic so who knows...I could see where it would probably be a good idea to use that plane on slower days or slower part of the season.

Possibly if CO opened a SFO-HNL route, you might see the 752 or 753 on that route, that would be about it though.

None of the 757-324's are ETOPS-certified, therefore cannot be operated on any of our HNL flights. The 764 and possibly 777 are the only aircraft you will see on the route in the near future, unless LAX-HNL goes 757, which has been rumored for years but flights 75/76 have always been on widebody equipment. We operated a Saturday-only 757 service to both LAX and SFO from HNL back when we had them in the Pacific, but that was with series -200 ETOPS-certified aircraft (of which all the 757-224's are) and only to rotate them back into our domestic system.

Is Alaska screwing them over or is it the lack of other airlines flying these routes??

AA, HP, DL, NW, All could fly SEA or PDX/ANC and they dont. I see the SEA cargo ramp every morning and I see at least 3 AA M80's sitting there, and 2 DL birds sitting there as well. They could easily be used for at least 1 or 2 RT's SEA/ANC and still be back in time for the AM flights out of SEA.
You mad Bro???

CO service to Anchorage this summer will consist of 2x daily 757s SEA-ANC, both tags from EWR and IAH, and a nonstop IAH-ANC 757. Over the winter, service will drop to a single-daily 757 operating SEA-ANC. Large reduction in capacity, but it reflects the very seasonal demand, as Continental's flights are primarily set up to cater to passengers originating in the Lower 48, rather than in Alaska.

AA, NW, All codeshare with Alaska. Not sure about Delta but I believe they do too.

HP, has been on and off again over the years.


This leaves AS as the sole non-token player on the ANC-SEA run.

And don't get me started about how they threatened, and pretty much have jacked up ticket prices on that run if the fishing packers and boats didn't use their partner Pen-Air as opposed to air charter companies in Anchorage.


Alaska plays very dirty in this state.
