Re: Alaska Airlines Fleet Network and News Discussion - 2022

Was the Spirit of the Islands aircraft done as part of Hawaiian student contest? I thought the paint job had a 5-year life. I don’t know what the original life expectancy was for that aircraft. I just know it rolled out in 2013 and still wears that beautiful scheme. A hell of a lot better then that...

Re: Alaska Airlines Fleet Network and News Discussion - 2022

I wonder what type aircraft. In a way, I'm hoping it's on a 737-800 because they can fly to the Disney airport (SNA). But I suppose it could be on a 737-700 or A320. Welp. N538AS, the final aircraft in old colors went off to paint in GEG yesterday. My guess is this will possibly be the new theme ta...
