This will really upset those trying to push the narrative Alaska is struggling and that they don’t know what they’re doing.

Not realty. Q3 is arguably the best quarter of the year in terms of revenues for all airlines in the northern hemisphere.

It was even mentioned internally that the high margin was due to Q3 being a peak quarter for AS, while Q2 is typically peak for everyone else.

That's why growth in revenue and income is reported per quarter year over year. The year over year growth is what is impressing everyone.
