If you don’t have status with Alaska, and you’re not paying for one of the more expensive seats, there’s still a way to board early. At least for one day.
Alaska Airlines guests who wear their festive holiday sweaters to the airport for National Ugly Holiday Sweater Day on Friday, Dec. 21 can board their flight early. The one-day promotion will be celebrated by flyers and employees alike across Alaska’s 116-city network and includes all Alaska and Horizon Air flights.
“This time of year, we consider ourselves the ‘merrier carrier,’ so we love going above and beyond to help our guests embrace the fun, festive side of flying during the holidays. Whether you’re heading home to celebrate tradition or jetting off to a sunny destination to escape the cold, we recognize your journey begins with us, and we’re happy to make your travels even brighter any way we can,” said Natalie Bowman, managing director of marketing and advertising at Alaska Airlines.
An easy way to get priority boarding on Alaska flights and it should come in handy during the crazy crowds during holiday season.
Anyone planning to take advantage of it? Make sure you buy your ugly sweaters in advance.
