  1. And an excitable man in a dress at the check in counter paid to perform no particular function other than to be jazzed at the idea that you might eventually celebrate sodomy as he does.

  2. I would say that Ak Air has real bragging rights as we all know they are operating more flights under more challenging conditions than any other airline. Especially in southeast ak. I tip my hat to them.

  3. And they have the highest number of men parading in skirts as women flight attendants. The photo on the front of their main cabin menu is of a guy-gal. Why can’t it be of a normal married couple with a male husband and female wife who works for Ak airlines ?! Surely there’s a husband-wife team who work for Ak airlines to represent and put some morals and values back into the company?!

    • Something on the order of 9 times out of 10 these prancers are only able to focus on themselves or their narrow interests related to whatever mental illness they are publicly celebrating, eschew customer service, and actually abuse the customers instead of serving them. Always remember: its not about YOU, its about THEM.

  4. Yes. It was a busy summer for the hotels. It still feels busy. Being held prisoner in one’s home during 2020-2021 probably had something to do with peoples traveling more in 2022-2023

  5. I was 100% fed up during the mask mandate. The fight attendants would walk the aisle looking for offenders who let that flap of cloth slip below the nose. You might as well have been a hijacker, whew, they went nuts. Better now but California gets priority when planes run short.

  6. Regardless, the airlines and the government have made flying such as hassle I avoid it at every opportunity.

    And that doesn’t even cover the insane cost of flying.

  7. They should have to change their name to Seattle Airlines because they surely do not represent most Alaskans. I try to schedule any other airline if possible.
