Alaska Airlines Fantastic First Class!


Noel Philips

Alaska Airlines is the fifth largest airline in the United States.  Headquarted in Seattle, Washington, they operate a route network around the US, with hubs along the west coast.  My flight today was from Los Angeles to Seattle, which is a highly competitive route operated by American Airlines, Delta, Spirit, United and Alaska Airlines.  There are 235 flights a week between these two cities, and over 1.2 million passengers per year fly the route.

I opted to take Alaska Airlines for today’s flight as an airline I’ve not flown on before.  I stayed overnight at the fantastic Hilton LAX, located a short ride from Terminal 6, home to Alaska Airlines at Los Angeles.
