Re: Alaska Airlines Network Thread 2020

ANC isn’t really out of the way at all so they absolutely could connect passengers from the L48. Delta could launch this with a 757 tho. I agree with your point with AS being able to connect passengers onto ANC-NRT from the lower 48 if AS adds ANC-NRT nonstop service, especially with ANC being loca...

AS adding SFO-TPA nonstop service is also a possibility with UA currently being the only airline serving TPA nonstop from the San Francisco Bay Area. SFO-TPA has been added as well.

I think DL and Ravn Alaska are going to wind up linking up. That would be a huge blow in AK.
