Yes they have been all Boeing until now. All Alaska Airlines operated flights were on 737s.


Really? What were those AS MD-80s I've flown on?


Legally Boeing aircraft since the late '90s. Also, they've all been retired for 10 years now.

Didn’t we go through this exact same question awhile back? Most people knew what I meant. I meant recent history.

You forgot to point out that AS had 727s, 707s, a 990, and 880.

Thanks for posting this!

I must say, 530 looks a little bit... odd. Just like the 732 looked a little odd back in the day. Just not enough space to put the ‘Alaska’ in the right place. I guess I just thought what would work on the 73G would work on the 319. But now that I look at pictures of the 319 and 73G, the 319’s wingbox is much bulkier much further forward, resulting in less space to squeeze the name in. Thus they lifted it to a location similar to that of the Alaska Air Cargo fleet.
