priority boarding

Kraken fan? (Or have the t-shirt?) Wear it and get priority boarding on Alaska Airlines

Folks in Seattle are pretty darn excited that there’s now a professional hockey team in town.

And so is Alaska Airlines, the hometown airline that’s also the official airline of the Kraken.

To celebrate the ice hockey season, Alaska Airlines is offering priority boarding out of Seattle, Everett, or Palm Springs to anyone wearing a Seattle Kraken or Coachella Valley Firebird jersey. (The Firebirds are a new professional ice hockey expansion team of the Seattle Kraken.)

That means anyone sporting a Kraken or Firebirds hockey jersey will be able to board following group B.

The offer stands for passengers Kraken and Firebirds gear-wearing fans on all Alaska Airines flights departing from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), Paine Field (PAE), and Palm Springs International Airport (PSP).

Don’t have the gear just yet? We suspect you’ll find shops at these airports selling the gear. Let us know what you find.

Airlines, airports mark May the Fourth

If you are flying across the country, or to a galaxy far, far away, on Alaska Airlines on Wednesday, May 4th, be sure to wear your favorite Star Wars clothing.

Alaska Airlines also just showed off a new Star Wars/Disneyland livery.

We know other airlines and many airports also celebrate May the Fourth, so check back here for additions throughout the day. And let us know what we’ve missed.

Here is one of our favorites from last year’s May the Fourth airport celebrations
