A federal grand jury has indicted a Hawaii man on charges he lied to authorities when he said a possible hijacker was aboard an Alaska Airlines flight to Seattle.
Starting June 9, Alaska Airlines will add daily, nonstop flights this summer between Fairbanks and Portland.
The Alaska Airlines pilot who lost consciousness during a Seattle-bound flight Thursday night, prompting an emergency landing, was suffering from food poisoning or a stomach virus, an airline spokesman said Friday.
Alaska Airlines has been quietly warning passengers for years that it charges $25 for every oversized carry-on it has to check at the gate. The airline said on Tuesday it has actually had to charge the fee on occasion lately, but contrary to some media reports, it isn’t considering setting up a cash register at the gate.
