KRISTEN'S PICK - WINNER
Alaska Air Letting Passengers In Ugly Christmas Sweaters Board Early
While nobody likes to get an ugly Christmas sweater for the holidays, that one you got from Aunt June may just come in handy if you’re flying Alaska Airlines next week.
In honor of National Ugly Holiday Sweater Day, which is next Friday, the airline announced that anyone wearing an ugly holiday sweater will be allowed to board their plane early. And it’s not really just Alaska Air. Virgin America and Horizon Air flights, which are both owned by Alaska, will also take part in the promotion, across 115 cities.
“Travel during the holidays can be stressful for guests, especially those who do not travel often,” Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines managing director of marketing and advertising, explains. “This fun promotion not only allows guests to board early on that day, but gives people another opportunity to dust off that ugly holiday sweater hanging in the back of their closet.”
The airline also plans to pipe in holiday-themed boarding music to get travelers in the holiday spirit and asks that they share their travel experience using hashtags #UglySweaterDay and #MostWestCoast.
- Now folks may be a bit embarrassed to wear that ugly sweater out, but think about the benefits. Flights are bound to be overcrowded due to holiday travel, so if you want to get on early and guarantee you get your carry-on in that overhead bin, it may just be worth it.
