MIAMI – Watch in 4K! Fly on board Alaska Airlines’ inaugural Boeing 737-9 MAX flight from Seattle (SEA) to San Diego (SAN) in First Class.

Last weekend, I broke from my shelter and took my first overnight trip since January 2020 (yes, 13 months prior!). I flew on Alaska Airlines’ inaugural Boeing 737 MAX flight from Seattle to San Diego.  

I was hoping that Alaska and/or Boeing would put on a big party (or do a big PR push) given their large Seattle presence. Unfortunately, there was nothing. That did not dampen the enthusiasm on board, however, as you will see in my video trip report.
