The emergence of Alaska Airlines as a major network carrier is one of the more interesting developments in recent air transportation history. And the carrier is gearing up accordingly. You Tube channel KhunPaulflyer takes the viewer aboard a brand new 737-900 for a trip from Seattle to Las Vegas. The video offers great views of the Puget Sound area after takeoff, stunning northwest mountains, a peek at Alaska’s domestic premium cabin and the mixture of suburban sprawl with moonscape settings on the descent into Las Vegas.
Alas, the videographers do not reveal if there is such a thing as a “new plane smell”. 🙂
