#3  Alaskan Airlines is one of the very best I've ever flown. Quantas, Lufthansa, and the old South African Airlines are also among the best. Delta is by far the worst. I fly Delta in a somewhat futile attempt to support local Delta retirees of the hometown airline. Most of the retirees are hard working maintenance, ticketing, scheduler folks and pilots. Swishy FA's don't seem to favour Georgia as a retirement haven. I hope the trend continues.

#2  Alaska Airlines has always treated our military personnel with courtesy and respect, genuine care for our military passengers.

#1  While Delta treats our armed forces this way, repeatedly if the comments in the article are true, Alaska allows uniformed militray to board early in the boarding queue; not as lead off hitters but enough that they can be assured of a place in the overhead bins for their gear. One marine was late to the call ( this was in San Diego) and the counter agents held the line until he was found ( he was on the phone to his girl). Good on Alaska!

And they don't fly Airbus jets, Delta cannot say that.
