Alaska Airways typically runs enjoyable promotions that give clients particular perks. A type of is Nationwide Vacation Sweater Day, which is arising on Friday, December fifteenth. Anybody carrying a vacation sweater on flights served by Alaska Airways or Horizon Air that day can board early, following Group B.
It’s the sixth yr in a row that the Seattle-based airline has embraced this festive custom however I’m fairly certain it was once referred to as Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. I can perceive why they removed the phrase ugly as a result of not all vacation sweaters are.
When you don’t personal a vacation sweater, Alaska Airways is promoting one. I’ll allow you to determine in case you suppose it’s ugly or not (picture above). However you should buy the sweater in particular person at Alaska’s Firm Retailer: 19235 Worldwide Blvd, SeaTac, WA 98198 or on the Alaska Firm Retailer’s web site.

I do personal a few vacation sweaters myself, together with one Alaska despatched me final yr as a present so I might need to bust mine out and benefit from early boarding. Though … I do have elite standing with American Airways and so they’re a oneworld member, identical to Alaska, so I already get early boarding.

For many who haven’t any want to put on a vacation sweater, handsome or not, you’ll in all probability be happy to know that Alaska Airways is celebrating the vacations not simply on December fifteenth however all through the entire month. In reality, they are going to have festive décor and boarding music, in addition to free vacation films to assist flyers have a merry flight.

As a reminder, anybody touring throughout the holidays is inspired to reach to the airport at the very least two hours earlier than their flight given anticipated congestion on the airport.” That is considered one of my 14 suggestions and methods for avoiding vacation journey complications.
