This morning as we boarded our flight to go home, our flight attendant spent lots of time making sure Jake was as comfortable as possible. She brought him a Disney coloring book, and asked him if he knew what the guy flying the plane was called. He excitedly said "pilot!" and she pulled out this pin, placed it in his hands and said "how would you like your own set of wings, just like the pilot wears?" Day made. #AlaskaAirlines #IFlyAlaska
Made this sketch while sitting in the Maui Airport waiting to board my own Alaska Airlines flight home. I wasn't sure I'd finish it in time, but there were several late passengers and Alaska kindly held the plane and gave them time to make their flight and me time to finish my painting. The shells are a souvenir from Maui that I carried home for me!
360. Our flight home was wonderfully, fantastically uneventful. It was the emptiest flight I've ever seen (they had to rearrange a few people so that the plane was balanced!). Austin and I each had our own row and the kids just wandered between them. Thanks to the iPad and a never ending supply of Halloween candy, the 5 hour flight went by fast! Thanks again to @Alaskaair for helping us out! To recap: Because of Abram's hospitalization, we weren't able to make it to our original flight. We did not purchase insurance and our tickets were non-refundable. It was going to cost over $2,000 to change our tickets! After posting on IG, someone from Alaska Air reached out to be and solved our problem in literally 20 minutes. He changed our flights without an issue and we didn't have to pay a cent. I am so grateful!! #iflyalaska
