    Delta is getting a lot of love nationally, as well as from investors. I was chatting with one of the Alaska airlines agents and mentioned Delta, and he riled up. "We don't talk about them." I think they are starting to edge up in customer service, something Alaska has always been well known for.

    Delta was pretty underhanded and ruthless towards Alaska. They were once very close to being official partners.

    Delta used Alaska connecting feed in Seattle to support an initial offering of international flights from SEA. They used this relationship towards getting their foot in the door in the booming Seattle market, then they launched an all out attack on Alaska in an effort to push them out of Seattle. They duplicated nearly 60% of Alaska's flight schedule including deep-trenched in markets in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Delta is a kool aid factory. On social media and industry forums, their employees routinely talk down to employees of other airlines. They are very brash and in-your-face. The old "code of conduct" between airline employees was that we are all brothers and sisters, the uniform is only something we wear. Delta employees no longer practice that so they are often alone in their own little echo chamber.

    Delta feels confident and smarter because they do not have any MAX in orders and doing very well. The best US airline according to a lot of people and specialist.

    Talking about Alaska, what a difference the switch from E Jet to Mainline makes ! I guess their planes are still full !

    I just happened to notice last night's SEA turn was with an A319 instead of the A320 that I thought they were planning on using on the route and that I know they have used since November when they started mainline service. Could have been a one-off sub or perhaps they dynamically switch between the two depending on bookings or days of the week?

    They will have gates near each other, but they are leaving their old gates in a better location for other airlines who utilize more gates. It gives more options to the other guys. “New” gates aren’t always the big deal, it’s better for the other guys having the ability to group their gates together.

    I think Alaska Airlines is about to sell their 10 A 319 to American so my guess is on a one off.
