For our final jump home, Mrs. Island Miler and I took a more traditional Alaska flight aboard Alaska Airlines 893 SEA-HNL in Premium Class. It was also our first encounter with Alaska’s post-merger catering.
To get home from San Francisco, we needed to take two flights. The first flight, Alaska Airlines 1837 was our final Virgin America flight. Well, sort of. Technically it’s already an Alaska flight, but the service was still Virgin.

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!
California is an excellent place to visit if you love food, especially up North. So this next trip report series is going to be on a Gourmet Adventure Through Norther California.
