Status Ratings of Alaska Airlines as a Preferred Carrier

Having grown up in Seattle, it is rather amazing to see how this airline has grown. But they have grown at a rather steady pace, until the purchase of Virgin America… they are now a rather large airline, connecting most of the West Coast of the USA, and a host of other destinations as well.

They do provide one of the most consistent quality products flying in the USA. And with their recent fleet upgrades, a rather pleasant flight has almost always been provided. A great airline, let us hope it stays that way.

 Alaska Airlines Fleet Information

Alaska Airlines the new cabin

Prior to the Virgin America (VX) purchase, Alaska (AS) was a “Proudly All Boeing” airline. The purchase of VX brought in over 60 Airbus A319 / A320 / and an order for 10 A321neos. Over the last year or two, Alaska has done a good job integrating the Airbus with Boeing fleet. The new Airbus Economy seating is very good, the new Airbus First Class however, will be a disappointment to many who were VX fans, and a bit of a let down to their standard new First Class on the Boeing jets as well.

Alaska has also opted for passengers to bring their own device for the Entertainment System

Alaska has also opted for passengers to bring their own device for the Entertainment System. They offer Free and Fast streaming and content, but you will want to have the App preloaded prior to boarding the flight.
