YAY! Too bad those new seats won't be in in-time for my first AS flights starting in 2 weeks. I hope you guys come through and we have some great flights ORD-SEA-BOI-SEA-ORD.

Alaska's first 737-800 will be delivered in Feb 2005.  Wow!

Those 738's that will be getting are going to look sharp. I loved those pics on the alaskasworld.com website. IMHO I wish that they would make a quick decision for once, and retrofit the whole fleet quickly.

This is good news. I hope they are redesigning their first class seats as well as economy. Although leather, the first class seats are horribly uncomfortable and a little shabby on some of the older airplanes. The cushion has just given up, and makes your back hurt. Good news from a great airline.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Yeah, I'd rather get all sweaty while sitting on dead animal skin instead.  Insane

Yes, if you go to http://www.alaskasworld.com you will see 2 people sitting on the prototype F/C seats.
