Question About Alaska Charters Into GPT

Tue Jul 11, 2006 8:44 am

For the past five days or so I've noticed daily Alaska Airline redeyes into GPT arriving anywhere between 630am and 930am. Everyday it's been a 739. I'm sure they are probably military charters, but just incase it was some other reason, I decided to ask here. Seems for the most part they go SEA-GPT-SEA. If anyone has any info on this let me know. Oh yeah, the flight numbers are 7***.

About 600 troops are enroute from Alaska to Mississippi for training before heading to Iraq. One of my best friends is one of them. I would imagine that's the reason for these flights.
