I have flown on many airlines in the United States and Canada , but on my trip to San Francisco back to Las Vegas , I flew on an airline that I have never been on before , Alaska Airlines .
The Seattle , Washington based airline does fly out of all three New York City airports that I fly out of.
I never thought of taking Alaska out of JFK or Newark Liberty , because I’m not going to find a $49 one way fare like I did for San Francisco to Las Vegas .
For a flight to a destination like Las Vegas , which is always crowded , the plane was surprisingly empty.
If you happen to fly to Las Vegas on Alaska , you’ll be more than likely arriving in Terminal 3, where you have to get a shuttle to take you to terminal , where you can get Lyft, Uber, hotel shuttles, taxis, or good old public transportation like I always do if I get to Vegas at a decent hour, like before 9pm.
The seats are very comfortable and this time, I had a whole row to myself.
I was also able to sleep on the plane and not be disturbed by anyone , except the flight attendants passing out snacks , water or Orange juice as this was a very short flight .
Once again, with just my drawstring bag , I got out of the terminal very fast .
If I happen to get an inexpensive flight on Alaska out of Newark Liberty or JFK , you’d better believe I’m taking it, and because I just had to be “that Sports Diva who loves collecting air miles” , you just know that I signed up for Alaska Airlines Frequent Flyer Program.
Besides, you never know.
God willing, I may be doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour of the Emerald City, aka Seattle, Washington.
