  • Read more 19MAR2014: Delta set to take Alaska Airlines on in Seattle
    Delta Air Lines (DL, Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson) is set to go head to head with Alaska Airlines (AS, Seattle Tacoma Int'l) in Seattle Tacoma Int'l after CFO Paul Jacobson referenced plans to turn Seattle into a hub.

    According to TravelWeekly, Delta initiated plans to develop its Seattle hub last year with the creation of a new executive position: vice president-Seattle. Since then, it has announced plans to dramatically boost services to San Francisco, CA, Los Angeles Int'l, Las Vegas McCarran, Phoenix Sky Harbor, Vancouver Int'l, Portland Int'l, OR, San Diego Int'l and San José, CA by year end.

    In addition, the news report adds, Delta will be removing its code from Alaska's flights linking Seattle with Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego, San Francisco, San José, Vancouver, Anchorage, Portland and Phoenix — presumably to avoid competing with flights on its own metal on those routes.

    In response, Alaska has ramped up its daily flights from Seattle to Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco. The announcement earlier this year of flights to Salt Lake City and Detroit Metropolitan - both Delta hubs - are seen as "retaliatory". Additionally, Alaska intends to deepen its relationship with American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth) from whom codesharing brought in USD165million in revenue.

    Alaska Airlines (AS, Seattle Tacoma Int'l) has placed a firm order with Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) for two additional B737-900(ER)s worth USD192million at current list prices. With twenty-six B737-900s currently in service and a further thirty-one outstanding options, Alaska expects to take delivery of all its B737-900(ER)s by 2017. In 2012, the airline also ordered twenty Boeing 737 MAX 8s and seventeen B737 MAX 9s.
  • Read more 29OCT2013: Alaskan orders 111 Split-Scimitar Winglets from APB for its B737NGs
    Alaska Airlines (AS, Seattle Tacoma Int'l) has placed an order with Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) subsidiary, Aviation Partners Boeing (APB), for 111 firm Split Scimitar Winglet Systems for its B737 Next Generation fleet. APB expects its Split Scimitar Winglets to be certified and enter revenue service by the end of this year with Alaska Airlines one of the very first airlines worldwide to deploy them. Alaskan expects to save USD20million in annual fuel costs once it has retrofitted the devices to its fleet of seventeen B737-700s, sixty-one B737-800s and twenty-two B737-900s.
  • Read more 27OCT2013: Ethiopian, Alaska Airlines turn to B737NG freighters for cargo ops
    Ethiopian Airlines (ET, Addis Ababa) and Alaska Airlines (AS, Seattle Tacoma Int'l) have both announced plans to introduce freighter-converted Next-Generation B737s into their respective fleets over the coming 5 years. Speaking during the recent Cargo Facts Aircraft Symposium held in Seattle, USA, last week, Ethiopian Airlines Cargo Managing Director, Asrat Begashaw, said that his division would operate three B737-800(F)s come 2018 in addition to an anticipated long-haul fleet of eleven B777-Fs and three B767-300(F)s. At present, Ethiopian Cargo's sole short-haul freighter, a B737-400(F), ET-AQV (msn 28493), is in service with the freight division of its West African subsidiary, ASKY Airlines (KP, Lomé). Meanwhile, Alaska Airlines' Managing Director for Financial Planning & Analysis, Torque Zubeck, said his carrier plans to replace its single B737-400(F) and five B737-400(M)s, used on Alaskan as well as mainland US flights, with B737 NextGen Freighters. Though no specific timeframe for their retirement was outlined, Mr Zubeck did say Alaska wanted to end B737-400 passenger operations by 2017.
