To get from Honolulu to Northern California, naturally, I chose to fly Alaska Airlines 710 HNL-SFO. It was an easy choice because of my Companion Certificate that got better when I scored a free upgrade!
The Partial Government Shutdown’s effects are spreading. And, now, Alaska Air delays the start of Paine Field service because of it.
And another one bites the dust. Following JetBlue and the US Big 3, Alaska Airlines increases checked bag fees too. That leaves Hawaiian Airlines as the last one not to raise fees. I mean, there’s Southwest too, but they won’t charge fees. And airlines like Sun Country don’t count, right?
