In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Make your flight a little more enjoyable with Alaska Airlines

Travel Tuesdays with Alaska Airlines

Our Travel Tuesdays series with Alaska Airlines continues and this time we head out to southern California. Host Kanoe Gibson had the chance to fly first class out of Honolulu for the first time and takes us along for the ride to get a feel for the “Alaska Air experience.”

While Alaska Airlines started as a small regional airlines in the north, it has proven to be a fierce competitor among the majors in international skies. With a route system spanning over four countries and with more than 44 million customers, Alaska Air values its unique spirit of integrity, ingenuity and professionalism, which is founded in its geographical roots.

Having expanded its reach across the Pacific to Hawaii, Alaska now has non-stop flights from all the major Hawaiian Islands to Alaska and the West Coast. It prides itself on creating an airline which people love through its commitment to provide the best customer service, which includes the people, product and the plane itself.

Alaska provides an efficient and seamless check-in process via its award-winning app and self-check in kiosks. Customer service agents assist in getting customers checked in in a timely manner to allow for ample time on the other side of security prior to boarding. Once on board, Alaska’s provides award-winning inflight service.  Whether you’re seated in main cabin or first class, a variety of amenities are available to every passenger including complimentary snacks and beverages, power outlets at every seat, free movies and TV shows, and stellar meals available for purchase in the main cabin.  Main cabin meals are “local fare with West Coast flair” and fresh foods with local ingredients that can be purchased 24 hours in advance on Alaska’s mobile app. Premium seating provides 4″ of extra legroom, early boarding, and complimentary snacks and beverages. And first class is luxury seating and service at an affordable price with all of the same amenities and first class meals and beverages.

Make sure to stay tuned for an adventurous getaway as Kanoe explores Southern California.
