Alaska Airlines Paint Schemes-Anchorage

Wed Jul 10, 2013 8:40 pm

I was just looking on airliners.net at pictures of Alaska Airlines "Colorful Paint Schemes" and I can't believe how many of them Alaska has! Assuming they are all still painted that way it looks like 9-10 different schemes in total.

I'm excited now because I'm going to be up in Anchorage, AK (ANC) working at the airport for 2 days next week. I'll be there on Tuesday and Wednesday 7/16-7/17 and I'm really hoping to see some of these in person.

I am dying to see the new Salmon-Thirty-Salmon II and I'm anxious to see if it will be routed through ANC during my trip. Since most airlines post schedules about 7 days out can anyone here provide next weeks's routing/schedule's for:

N559AS Salmon II (Most important!!!)

and these 4 also...

N560AS Island
N791AS Tinkerell (wanna get a picture for my daughter, 3 yr. old)  
N512AS Boeing
N595AS Retro

Thanks for your help, you guy's are the best!

When I was in SEA & ANC on a spotting trip I saw very few specials for AS. I've had more luck LAX and elsewhere.

I'm surprised by this since SEA and ANC are two hub's for AS, but it looks to be true. ACARS-D shows the Salmon-Thirty-Salmon II doing mostly West to East coast routes, like SAN-BOS. Who know's maybe I'll luck out...

Again, if there are any AS employees out there who can provide a heads up on routings I'll owe you one!

Interesting to see if we can get a heads up on Salmon II..and the others.

I'll check internal a/c routing and see what I can come up with but keep in mind a/c swaps happen all the time so they won't always operate as slated.

That is awesome. It is still better than a shot in the dark. If you don't mind, i would like to piggy back on the OP's request for any of them inbound to KFLL too! Thank you!
