New Alaska Airlines cuts non-stop services from Indianapolis to San Francisco | 2018-08-06 | Indianapolis Business Journal
Alaska Airlines, located in Seattle, plans to stop its non-stop services from Indianapolis to San Francisco - a day trip that has only been in use since last autumn. The Alaska Airlines is a relatively recent addition to the Indianapolis family - its first itinerary, a non-stop everyday Seattle connection, was scheduled to start in May 2017. San Francisco International Airport's non-stop scheduled flights began on September 26, 2017.
"Alaska ( Airlines ) has reassured us that it will continue to be involved with Indianapolis and is very satisfied with the IND Seattle itinerary, also in the midst of the new Delta competition," said Marsha Stone, Senior Director of commercial enterprise of the Indianapolis Airport Authority, about the airline's ruling. In June, Delta Air Lines Inc. started its non-stop services in Indianapolis/Seattle. The Indianapolis passenger continues to have the opportunity to fly non-stop to San Francisco.
With a 2014 service from Indianapolis to San Francisco, United Airlines is offering two non-stop services to Golden Gate City every day. South West Airlines also provides a non-stop service from Indianapolis to Oakland International Airport, about 30 miles from San Francisco International.
Part of Alaska Airlines Pet Travel Policy
Alaska Air advises you to contact the customer service team at 800-252-7522 as soon as your itinerary is approved, as the First Class cabins can accept 1 animal and the Master cabins 5 animal on any flights. The Alaska Air allows small domestic animals (dogs, cats, bunnies and domestic birds) to enter the cabins if the total weights of animal and vehicle do not surpass 20 pounds (9 kg).
Canine and cat must be at least 8 week old to be able to stay in the cab. Passengers can use up to 2 domestic animals, provided that 2 places are bought. As an alternative, up to 2 animals of the same race may journey in the same vehicle if they do not suffer any stress.
Every animal in the cubicle has a $100 per way charge. The Alaska Air allows a number of small domestic animals (including cats, canines, ferrets, guinea-pigs, hammers, domestic fowls, non-toxic reptiles, potbellied hogs, bunnies and tropic fish) to be transported as freight if the total mass of the domestic animal and vehicle does not exceed 68 kg (150 lbs).
Animals are allowed with permission. To enter the loading area, the dog and cat must be at least 8 week old. Every domestic animal that travels in the freight compartment has a charge of $100 per leg. Because of the extremes of temperature that can occur in the holds, Alaska Air may refuse to accept domestic animals if they feel the air is too uncertain.
Domestic pet travelers who cross the threshold of weights to check in luggage or board the aircraft may call the Freight Division at 800-225-2752 for information on how to transport domestic animals with freight. Domestic animals travelling in the cubicle must not be allowed to wear rigid shells larger than 17" x 11" x 7.5" (43 cm x 28 cm x 19 cm) and flexible shells larger than 17" x 11" x 9.5" (43 cm x 28 cm x 48 cm).
Domestic animals travelling in the holds must not be carried in excess of 30" x 27" x 40" (76 cm x 68 cm x 101 cm). Animals must be equipped with feed and drink trays placed on the inside. Alaska Airlines will not accept Brachycephalian (short-nosed) breeds of dog and cat as freight.
Remarkable breed of dogs regarded as this species are Boston Terrier, Boxer (all breeds), Bulldog (all breeds), Bullterrier, Brussels Griffon, Chow Chow, English Toy Spaniel, Japanese Spaniel/Japanese Chin, Mastiff (all breeds), Pekingese, Pit Bull (all breeds), Pug (all breeds), Shih Tzu, Staffordshire Terrier; cats are Myanmar, Exotic Shorthair, Himalayan and Persian.
Those races may continue to fly in the cabins with their passengers if they comply with the normal standards. I' ve never had a nasty Alaska Airlines before. As many people, I take the cheapest flights, but I'm always very lucky when Alaska appears as the least expensive, and that's happened time and again lately.
Concerning the question of people who fly with pets, it shouldn't be a big deal as long as keepers are sensible (and I realize that this can be a big deal). There is no place for a Deutscher Schäferhund in the cubicle, but nobody should get excited about a mop or a little puddle as long as the breed is good.
I am pretty sure that if someone near me had a problem with an allergy, the cabin crew, at least on Alaska, would have put as much space as possible between me and the person with the allergy. Honestly, I think that the problem of pets on airplanes that aggravate air pollution is something like a scarlet sheen.
Personally, I have never seen a report about a person who was hypersensitive to seeing pets who have a problem because there is a puppy on a flight and I have seen a reasonable amount. Alaska Airlines has not sent us any pictures yet. Invite a picture of your pets to Alaska Airlines!
