Hello, any updates? Still have not seen the MAX flying. I would have thought by now they would have had them back and flying already.

There is already a slot for PDX-DCA. The flight is currently suspended due to demand, but is scheduled to return this summer. 764 is the outbound, not sure of the inbound.


Had to do a double take; the idea of an AS 767-400...one can only dream. :lol:

AS has flown DCA-PDX for years. Suspended during the pandemic but scheduled to return next month.


I had previously mentioned the possibility of AS adding PDX-IAD nonstop service with AS already serving IAD and with AS not being able to add extra PDX-DCA nonstop flights beyond the 1x daily that AS operates using a beyond-perimeter slot exemption.

I'm hoping the DOT/FAA opens additional beyond-perimeter slots.

You are going to be hoping for a while. The DOT/FAA are not the ones who create the beyond perimeter-slots, and I doubt that is a priority for Congress at the moment.


Oh yeah...good point. I had forgotten that the airport slots are a congressional thing.

Horizon starting ANC-PDX?

Sat Apr 24, 2021 9:41 pm

An op-ed in today's Anchorage Daily News says Alaska Airlines has begun selling tickets on Horizon Air to Portland.
Right now, the only non-stop I see on the schedule is one 737-9 red-eye flight from ANC-PDX. In June there are two flights but they are both 737s.
Does anyone know when the Horizon flights will begin?
The op-ed is written by an Alaska pilot who is worried about losing his job to a Horizon pilot:

Alaska Airlines route changes are bad news for pilots, passengers
https://www.adn.com/opinions/2021/04/24 ... assengers/

This is good news to me. I fly a lot between ANC-PDX and would welcome more flights.

It looks like 1 of the 2 daily flights in June/July has gone over to QX - the redeye.

I would hardly call that “good news” given what is sure to be a pretty big hit to seat capacity... though the E175s are very comfortable rides

AS has operated regional jets on a few routes longer than PDX-ANC such as PDX-DAL and SEA-DAL/MKE. I can understand AS operating regional jets on PDX-ANC with AS having operated regional jets on a few longer routes and with demand being weaker as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This looks like sabre rattling presaging contract negotiations. I wonder if AS pilots are going to advocate for some sort of scope protection, especially given that their airline continues to grow.

Agreed. And the first rule of negotiations is to never do it in public. I’m not sure what this pilot is trying to accomplish but this isn’t a winning strategy.

No it’s not. It’s so they can rotate planes to Alaska. It’s been flying on SEAANC once a day for a year almost

to

They must have got blowback from one of their major advertisers.

One can question the wisdom of publishing an op-ed by the pilots union (what's wrong with adjusting capacity and saving money?), but if the paper changed the headline in response to advertiser pressure all its journalistic credibility is trashed. No independence = no value to the community.

Did they change any of the content? Claiming they have no value for the community based on a changed headline and a speculated motivation is jumping the gun. The pilot's perspective is still reaching there readers. Isn't there value in that?

I think it is possible that the pilot ran afoul of AS media policies (whatever they may be) and requested the title change. The initial title seemed a little aggressive...I would be mortified if an opinion piece I wrote about my employer had a title like that.

Interesting question.

I recall flying on one of the E-175s overnight PDX - DFX several years ago but....it may have been a Skywest plane.

The writer of the op-ed does not write the headline... that is up to the newspaper staff. Obviously, someone thought the headline was a little too strong or misleading, but I'd bet it was a member of the editorial staff, not an advertiser.

So this pilot wants Alaska to fly half empty 737's around to make him happy? For passengers, the E175 is better than the 737 and any 3X3 narrow body by a large margin.

Thats a pretty long flight for an E175.

They are planning on flying PDX-AUS and PDX-ORD this summer, which are both longer than PDX-FAI.

E175's have been on longer runs. DL used to run SEA-FAI with an E175...probably not too different than PDX-ANC.

I've never flown on an E175 but I'm looking forward to it.
However, on SeatGuru, there are complaints that the windows are not aligned with the seats.
Is this something unique to Horizon?

I try to avoid the E170/175 at all cost. The windows are too far apart so airlines do not align seats with windows, making it very difficult to look out.


This is a window seat, but the windows do not align with the seat row, so there is just the cabin wall next to the seat.

Look, I get it is an op-ed piece but most pilots understand how equipment rotation works for Regionals and get that there will be some occasional hub-hub or hub-larger market-hub flying to get frames between areas of the operation.

E175s period don't align with the windows on all the seats. The windows are spaced 32 inches apart but between FC and the coach seats being 31 inches apart, it is hit and miss. I don't know of any US carrier that uses 32 inch pitch on the 175.

The E70 is certificated for all-Y at 32 inch pitch so the windows line up perfectly if it’s in an all-Y configuration. I believe the E75 is the same. The US/MDA E70s were delivered in all-Y (and they were the US launch customer) but I believe those were the only ones delivered that way in the States.

Looks like they are expecting it to come out on the 24th. I have two hunches, one being that it's a new theme plane or the other is that they found that instead of just the body that they have been doing they realized they needed to strip and repaint the wings. Most of the recent paints have been body only because the wing paint was still in good shape if my memory is correct. That is one reason they were able to quickly repaint the VX aircraft so quickly is they didn't repaint the wings.

Prior to the whole pandemic debacle, I flew on a -700, several A320's and A321-NEO's with the new interiors. I don't think I flew any -800's or -900's with the new interior.

The new interior is nice. The 320's and 321's all appear to be updated. I have flown on alot of 800's and 900's that still have the older interior. I do like the older first class seats though! So plush and comfortable.

All 700s, MAXs, and operating Airbus aircraft have the new interior (some stored Airbus aircraft still have the VX RED interior). According to employee communications, there is currently no timeline to upgrade the 800s or 900s. I wouldn't expect it until we see several quarters of profitability

Does anyone else think that Alaska needs to add some more branding to first class? Yes, it's very nice but there is no insignia or company logo or Chester in the cabin. I also feel like having no floor to ceiling bulkhead looks a bit tacky. Do you think Alaska has any interest in adding in a modification similar to American's Kodiak mods to their first class seats that provides a bit more of a separation of first and economy?

There was a recent discussion about the possibility of AS or DL adding SEA-YYZ nonstop service at https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1456179#p22759847.

There were some individuals who have mentioned the possibility of AS adding SEA-YYZ nonstop service with AS being bigger in the SEA market than DL, but DL would have some advantages over AS if it adds SEA-YYZ nonstop service due to the DL-WS partnership, connecting opportunities available to other Eastern Canadian destinations through YYZ on WS, the WS FF base in Canada, and longstanding DL presence at YYZ.

That could be a reason why they have not considered SEA-YYZ.

If AS tries to compete with WN on the BOI-SNA and GEG-SNA routes, then AS would have to give up a couple of existing frequencies. to existing destinations...unless AS has a couple in their back pocket.

I'm guessing the BOI-MDW is WN's response to AS announcing BOI-ORD. Maybe we'll see AS trying the GEG-ORD route.

I would love to see Alaska do something in defense to them since it’s there turf but WN still more room to grow then Alaska at least BOI and I know there is two gates Available at GEG but not where Alaska is so it should be interesting if the further push Alaska at those two airports ?

I never would have guessed I'd see 4 airlines serving BOI-CHI nonstop simultaneously in my lifetime (AA,AS,UA,WN). Or two to SNA for that matter (WN, G4). ;)

There will be more space on C at GEG when the airport gets done with the TREX project.

I think the timing has changed but the airport seems to be going forward.
