Staff travel information
Other airline employees will not be charged for the first two checked bags. However, non-revs must pay all excess and overweight charges. Each bag must weigh 50 pounds or less and have a maximum dimension of 62 linear inches (length + height + width) to avoid additional charges. Baggage charges can be paid at the ticket counter. Non-revs whose checked bags do not arrive will get free delivery.
The dress code on both Alaska and Horizon is casual and the requirement is simply a neat and well groomed appearance. Clothing that is soiled or tattered and bare feet are never acceptable.
Employees and travel eligibles are expected to use their own good judgment but customer service agents will have the final authority to refuse travel for inappropriate attire or appearance.
Other airline employees can list for Alaska Airlines pleasure travel flights online at ifc.id90.com . Select your airline from the dropdown.
Username: your airline code + emp (e.g. asemp)
Password: your airline billing code (e.g. 027)
Employees who list online, can check-in via the web at alaskaair.com or at an airport kiosk location.
After check in at the ticket counter, your name is put on the standby list. Standby travelers must be checked in and available to board at the designated boarding gate at least 40 minutes before posted departure for all flights. If a seat is available, your name is called at the gate.
Non revs board in order of zone
When economy cabin space is full and premium or first is available non revs will be moved to the next class
Pets The AVIH (Animal in Hold)/ PETC (Pet in Cabin) fee applies to other airline non-revenue travelers. Passengers must be 18 years old to travel with PETC. All health requirements need to be met for the animal. Pets will be tagged standby and when the non-revenue passenger clears the flight the animal is also cleared. Do not call to list the animal. It is suggested that you contact Alaska Reservations to check the number of confirmed Pets on the flight as there is a limited number of animals in the cabin.
Second Seat Policy The requirement of being able to fit within one seat with the armrests in the down position will apply to every passenger on our aircraft including non-revenue passengers. However, our non-revenue passengers will not be required to purchase an additional seat. All non-revenue passengers are required to advise the gate agent of their need for a second seat at the gate. If they do, the second seat will be blocked based on their boarding priority code. Since other airline travelers are not charged for the second seat, a courtesy block will be used on the adjacent seat.
Meals and DigE players Meals in coach class are available for purchase using your credit or debit card (this also applies to DigE players) on flights more than three and a half hours long.
Seat Requests In all instances, standby passengers should sit in their assigned seat and not request that other passengers relocate for your convenience. There is a possible chance that you and your party may be separated on the plane, so either prepare for this or take another flight that would better accommodate your needs.
Infant safety seats Lap infants sharing a seat with their parent may bring a child restraint seat on board provided there is an empty seat available for the infant. If the flight is full, the car seat will be checked at the gate using a claim-at-gate tag. The car seat will be returned to you at the gate upon arrival. All car seats must be FAA approved for aircraft use.
Unaccompanied minors Under 16 years not permitted to travel alone on a ZED ticket.
Infant tickets are not required for travel within the United States. For travel to/from Mexico and Canada, please see a Customer Service Agent at any Alaska Airlines ticket counter for infant ticketing. We cannot accept infant e-tickets from other airlines.
Travel is valid on flights operated by Alaska Airlines and flights operated by Horizon Air, Skywest, and PenAir marketed/sold as Alaska Airline flights.
All travelers must present government-issued photo ID such as a driver's license or passport. Whenever you travel as a non-revenue passenger you will need to present your employee photo ID badge at check-in. Dependents age 16 and over, will need to provide government photo ID such as a driver's license or passport.
For travel to Mexico or Canada or any other destinations outside of the USA, proof of citizenship is also required for every traveler. A passport is the identification needed for Canada and Mexico, and is required for other international destinations.

Dear UA Community –
As the country grapples with the evolving implementation of the President’s Executive Order restricting immigration, I assure you that the University of Alaska is working to understand the full impacts on our students, faculty, employees and their families. And, more importantly, I want to assure you that our university remains committed to the open exchange of students, scholars, and ideas from all over the world.
We are concerned about the well-being of our students, faculty and staff who may be traveling and kept from returning to our universities as a result of this policy. Although that number seems to be small, any impact is concerning.
The university is consulting with experts in order to provide guidance or assistance to any students or employees from the affected countries. We also are in regular contact with other universities and national associations to understand the implications of the new policy.
I want to repeat that the University of Alaska is committed to ensuring that all students, staff, faculty and their families can focus on what brought them here in the first place, the pursuit of scholarship in an environment that supports them regardless of their race, ethnicity, or national origin.
If students or employees need information about international travel or have concerns about their return to campus or visas, please use the following contact:
UAA: https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/ students/international- student-services

Sincerely, Jim Johnsen
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens not to travel to Cuba. Over the past several months, numerous U.S. Embassy Havana employees have been targeted in specific attacks. These employees have suffered significant injuries as a consequence of these attacks. Affected individuals have exhibited a range of physical symptoms including ear complaints and hearing loss, dizziness, headache, fatigue, cognitive issues, and difficulty sleeping.
The Governments of the United States and Cuba have not yet identified the responsible party, but the Government of Cuba is responsible for taking all appropriate steps to prevent attacks on our diplomatic personnel and U.S. citizens in Cuba. Because our personnel's safety is at risk, and we are unable to identify the source of the attacks, we believe U.S. citizens may also be at risk and warn them not to travel to Cuba. Attacks have occurred in U.S. diplomatic residences and hotels frequented by U.S. citizens. On September 29, the Department ordered the departure of nonemergency U.S. government employees and their family members to protect the safety of our personnel.
Due to the drawdown in staff, the U.S. Embassy in Havana has limited ability to assist U.S. citizens. The Embassy will provide only emergency services to U.S. citizens. U.S. citizens in Cuba in need of emergency assistance should contact the Embassy by telephone at +(53)(7) 839-4100 or the Department of State at 1-202-501-4444. U.S. citizens should not attempt to go to the U.S. Embassy as it suffered severe flood damage during Hurricane Irma.
Travelers should apprise family and friends in the United States of their whereabouts, and keep in close contact with their travel agency and hotel staff.

Here’s what Boeing’s CEO told his employees about the Alaska Airlines 1282 incident
Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun says Friday’s Alaska Airlines incident involving a Boeing 737 Max 9’s door separating from the plane mid-air “shook me to the bone.”
“I didn’t know what happened to whoever was supposed to be in the seat next to that hole in the airplane,” Calhoun said during a town hall with Boeing employees that was shared, in part, on the company’s website. “I got kids. I got grandkids, and so do you. This stuff matters. Everything matters.”
The cause of the incident remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board, but Calhoun accepted responsibility on behalf of Boeing.
“We’re going to approach this, number one, acknowledging our mistake,” he told employees, noting that he was preaching to the choir. “We’re going to approach it with 100% and complete transparency every step of the way.”
He pledged to work closely with the NTSB and Federal Aviation Administration, who he said will help “ensure every next plane that moves into the sky is in fact safe and that this event can never happen again.”
I've covered Boeing's 737 MAX for years. A quick rundown of the issues | Cruising Altitude
All Boeing 737 Max 9 planes have been grounded pending inspections and any necessary repairs involving potentially loose door bolts . The 737 Max family of jets has had a checkered history , and the Max 8 was grounded in 2019 following two deadly crashes within months.
Calhoun acknowledged Boeing’s customers are anxious after this latest incident, but said customers continue to have confidence in the aircraft manufacturer.
“(Customers) do (have confidence) and they will again, but we’re going to have to demonstrate it by our actions, our willingness to work directly and transparently with them and to make sure they understand that every airplane that Boeing has its name on that’s in the sky is in fact safe and we will see our way through to that,” he said.
No one was seriously injured in Friday’s incident on Alaska Airlines Flight 1282, thanks largely to the quick actions of the pilots and crew on board, according to Calhoun.

Clayco bans employees from flying on boeing 737 max 9 jets.
ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – The tension surrounding Boeing and its 737 Max 9 planes continues after a mid-air crisis forced an emergency landing earlier this month.
The video of a door blown off mid-air on Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 has gone viral and garnered criticism nationwide.
The FAA grounded all 737 Max 9 planes shortly after the incident and is currently inspecting all 171 planes as two U.S.-based carriers, Alaska and United Airlines, operate the jets.
But one St. Louis company said they weren’t waiting for the outcome of those inspections.
Clayco, a construction and engineering firm in the county, said their employees are restricted from flying on the Boeing 737 Max 9 until further notice.
Anthony Johnson, Clayco executive vice president, said the company’s executives met and came to the decision after fielding questions and concerns from employees.
New clues about what happened before mother’s forest death
“We had to take a step back and say, you know, if it was ourselves, if it was our family, would we want ourselves or them flying on these planes?” Johnson said. “And, until we learn more, we don’t.”
Clayco’s 4,000 employees work on projects across 43 states, which requires a lot of traveling. The company booked more than 40,000 flights in 2023 alone, according to Johnson. This number prompted executives to make the decision, which could be enforced if the planes are cleared for air.
“Honestly, even after the FAA finishes their investigation, the reality is the FAA investigated the Boeing airplanes a few years ago, too,” Johnson said. “So, I don’t know that we necessarily rely on that data at the conclusion, either.”
The FAA released a statement to the public on its investigation, saying “the safety of the flying public, not speed, will determine the timeline for returning these aircraft to service.”
On Wednesday, Jennifer Homendy, the chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, said the group is investigating the door plug’s entire production journey, along with what caused it to break off. She spoke to the media following a closed-door meeting in Washington with the U.S. Senate’s Commerce Committee.
“Was there an overpressure event inside the aircraft? Was there any sort of structural flexing of the aircraft itself at any points that may have had an impact on the plug itself?” Homendy said.
A Boeing spokesperson had no comment Thursday about Clayco’s decision to ban employees from flying with the jets.

The faa says it's keeping a closer eye on boeing as it investigates cabin panel blowout.
The FAA will have more oversight of the production and manufacturing of Boeing's 737 Max 9 planes after one lost a cabin panel mid-flight. The agency suggested it might delegate a third party to conduct Boeing inspections and quality control.
All 737-9 Max jets to remain grounded until Boeing sends new instructions, FAA says
Boeing’s efforts to get its grounded 737–9 Max back in service hit a snag after the Federal Aviation Administration deemed its remediation efforts lacking.
Boeing lost $35 billion in market cap this year, dragging down other air travel stocks
Airline stocks are down in what has turned out to be a bumpy start to 2024 spurred by Boeing's mid-air accident and a blocked merger.
FAA grounds roughly 171 Boeing 737 Max 9 planes after a cabin panel blew out during flight
An Alaska Airlines flight heading from Portland, Oregon to Ontario, California had to make an emergency landing Friday night when a piece of the Boeing 737 Max 9's cabin blew out at around 16,000 feet. There were no major injuries. The FAA has now grounded about 171 Boeing 737 Max 9 planes for safety inspections.
Boeing 737 Max 9 problems mount following Alaska and United Airlines incidents. Here’s what we know.
Alaska Airlines and United Airlines passengers faced major travel disruptions Monday after the Federal Aviation Administration forced the grounding of all Boeing 737 MAX 9 airplanes. It comes after Alaska Airlines flight 1282 on Friday had to make an emergency landing shortly after takeoff before a door plug blew off. Here's what we know so far about the investigation into the accident.

From photorealism to cubism, image-generating models can translate practically any description, short or detailed, into art that might well have emerged from an artist's easel. The trouble is, many of these models -- if not most -- were trained on artwork without artists' knowledge or permission.

These Are The Airlines With The Happiest Pilots
Posted: January 22, 2024 | Last updated: January 23, 2024
- Alaska Airlines has a strong management team and pilots who stay for decades, making it a great choice with comprehensive benefits and competitive salaries.
- Southwest Airlines provides excellent benefits, higher than average salaries, and a positive company culture, making it a top choice for pilots.
