RE: Alaska I don’t think anyone should be surprised by cuts or route changes when they absorbed a not so profitable airline. From my anecdotal experience it seems the routes out of LAX that Alaska didn’t serve prior to VX probably aren’t doing well. They’re usually the cheapest of their competitors...

Re: Gay couple allegedly bumped for straight couple...

People and media need to start asking why the plane had to return to the gate in JFK, and who was removed..... I’ve heard this story too, but find it somewhat unbelievable (and I have a hard time believing discrimination occurred). Is there any proof of a gate return? I only see a slightly late dep...

Re: Gay couple allegedly bumped for straight couple...

Raise your hand if you know of an airline (or the one you work at) has flight attendants deal with seating issues, while the door is open. Beuller? Beuller? (crickets) That's right. Almost none. Especially at Alaska. the AS FA's all have PDAs with access to the seat map, pax list, status, etc. the ...

I saw some of the Facebook stuff, and it was a lot of “Never flying Alaska again!” stuff. Im not part of the gay community but it just seems a bit kneejerk.


They’ll be over it when they need to fly to Vegas and Alaska is $3 cheaper.

Re: Gay couple ALLEGEDLY bumped for straight couple...

I’m a bit surprised, to be honest, at the number of people who have attacked the airline and demanded the employee be fired based on an incomplete story. Of all industries, airlines have seemed one of the better ones for recognizing and respecting the gay community, yet that “goodwill” has shown to...

Re: Gay couple allegedly bumped for straight couple...

I think the better way they could have handled this situation would have been to offer them compensation to take a later flight instead of moving one to coach (especially if they purchased first class tickets ) To be clear Premium “Class” on Alaska is not a separate fare class like First Class (or ...

Re: Gay couple allegedly bumped for straight couple...

Folks demanding whole crews be fired because of a Facebook accusations have obviously never worked customer service and/or are sociopaths.

Re: Gay couple ALLEGEDLY bumped for straight couple...

This seems unlikely to me. It would be quite stupid to publicly act indignant and claim discrimination if the airline could easily prove you didn’t pay for the seat. I could believe the passenger that was asked to move had perhaps been given an upgrade, then due to unforeseen circumstances they wou...

Re: Gay couple ALLEGEDLY bumped for straight couple...

Also, I think especially in the airline realm these social media driven boycotts are pretty ineffective. I know Southwest was also accused of being anti-gay this year. Which is also not too likely. Someone may say they won’t fly “airline x”, that is until that airline has the cheapest fare. People h...

Re: Gay couple ALLEGEDLY bumped for straight couple...

If this was in fact a flight attendant, it was an ex-Virgin America flight attendant. Crew integration hasn’t happened yet. I only mention this because on other social media realms people are asserting Alaska’s past of prayer cards is making this some type of company culture thing. It is hard to say...

Re: Alaska in the Bay Area

It is really sad this merger was approved. Serivce on Alaska is much worse and less sophisticated. VX was great for SFO. I avoid flying Alaska out of the Bay Area and choose Delta instead. I would not mind if Alaska keeps cutting SFO as it is not Virgin America anyway. When I see comments like this...
