Alaska Airlines Kraken Contest
This year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs are getting pretty exciting for fans of the Seattle Kraken.
The team has a surprise 2-1 lead against the Dallas Stars in a best-of-7 series and Game 4 is Tuesday night.
Alaska Airlines, the official airline of the Seattle Kraken, is joining in the fun by giving away free flights.
The number of flights they’ll give away is tied to the number on the jersey of the first player to score.
To participate in “Getaway Goals,” follow @alaskaair on social media, reply with the last name or number of the player you think will score first, and include #AlaskaAirGoals.
Here’s a link to the contest rules and here’s a link to The Seattle Kraken NHL site so you can study the players.
PUPs on Parade at Los Angeles International Airport
Pet therapy programs at airports are incredibly popular and the program at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary with a pup parade.
The LAX PUPs program, which stands for Pets Unstressing Passengers, started in 2013 and now includes more than 80 dogs and their handlers.
On Wednesday, May 10, from 11 am until 1 pm, more than a dozen LAX PUPs and their volunteer handlers will participate in a pup parade – complete with red carpet – in Terminal 1, by Gate 17/18 at LAX and then stick around for a meet-and-greet and photo ops with ticketed passengers.
