Fair use excerpt . Ultimately, as Nathaniel Pieper – Alaska Airlines’ Senior Vice President of Fleet, Finance and Alliances said,
The last hurdle we’ve got to get over is to come up with an A321 exit plan, and we’re getting close. Late-stage discussions with a bunch of parties, lessors, financial firms, other airlines, and our objective is to paper the transaction for the 10 aircraft by the end of the second quarter.
I managed to grab a ride on a VX 320 from LAX to ORD some years ago. Was really the best domestic F seat I'd ever had. Someplace in this site are pics of that trip. 6'2" and I couldn't stretch to reach bulkhead in 1A.
That said, along came AS and dumbed down the whole thing. Just like every other domestic F seat.
At this point all that matters for F (and mostly C) seats is the in-cabin service.
LET'S GO BRANDON!!!!
