Great Customer Service & Fun Gurantee from Alaska Airlines

Screenshot_20180731-174015_TwitterAs Alaska being my favorite airline – well, I live in Seattle and had histories of “challenges” whenever I took Delta :), I have always wondered whether this gurantee works or not – but I had no chance to check as all my luggage came within 20 min.. ๐Ÿ™‚ However, at this time on the flight from Boston, I noticed my bag came late – maybe around 25 min since we “officially” landed.

As I was in a hurry to leave the airport -late night arrival with families – I didn’t have the luxury of waiting in line and report this to Alaska at airport which is the official T&Cs calls out.

Anyhow after arriving at home, I just “twitted” to check my luck and guess what happened: immediate response and at next day I got a reward of 2,500 milesย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Alaska rocks!! – Fun & sweet!

Thought the Eskimo Smile would be bringing me down but found out it was Red Sir Richard Branson ๐Ÿ™‚

At the end this happen to be the first time of flying in Virgin America almost after 10 years since last time – believe I took Virgin once when it launched in Seattle, and also believe this might be highly likely the last red flight I might take as they are about to be rebranded as Alaska.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gonna miss the great entertainment system, fun & hipster safety video performance, and purple/blue neon lights in cabin.
