Default Alaska or (fill in another airline name)

In the interest of saving time and keeping our complaints on track.

Go to the other airline name you filled in, itís better there. That includes Spirit, PSA, and Mokulele.

Honest question: are you still here by choice or not so much?

Thanks. I genuinely wish you all well in turning this airline into a place where people want to stay and fight for what you deserve.

You know these things (contracts / airline biz) ebb and flow over time. 8 yrs ago if you wanted to spend your major airline career based in the NW it was really only one easy option, Alaska.
Alaska was doing a majority of Delta's SEA flying as codeshare, and a good portion of AA's SEA flying as codeshare.
When AK said no to doing Delta's stepped up SEA flying for them to make it into a international west coast hub, that forced Delta to grow their own metal considerably in SEA.
Now a NW wannabe based pilot has options fortunately so therefor hopefully the companies will feel the pressure over time to make sure their contracts are competitive with others in order to hire qualified pilots.

But if they go to another airline I might have guessed it when I played that game... good for my book.

This is fun.

Just curious,

Has Alaskan ever been a destination airline?

And I donít mean now, because clearly they arenít now. But have they ever?

And again, this is fun.
