On the handful of flights where B6 operates Mint, yes, of course.
On every single other aircraft and the airport experience though? First Class, Upgrades, Lounges, etc. AS beats B6 hands down.
So you'd rather fly transcon in a Alaska economy cabin or a Jetblue one? (since you already agreed jetBlue business >> alaskas)
One has large TVs, more legroom, free wifi, more snacks/drinks, lower density seating
the other does not.
This argument is completely irrelevant to the thread topic, but since you insist... B6's new dense cabins are the same as AS at 32" pitch so there is no legroom or density advantage. Seatback TV is a happy bonus but mostly irrelevant with streaming entertainment. Mint is on barely 10% of B6's fleet so while it is nicer than AS's 1st what is nicer is having the option on every route.
