I had to fly down to San Francisco for business earlier this month, and that meant a connection in Seattle on Alaska Airlines. It’s a route I fly at least once per year, sometimes more often. And it’s always a crowded/full flight, which you’d expect for two of the west coast’s biggest travel hubs.
But in the days leading up to the flight, I was watching the seat assignment chart online and couldn’t believe what I was seeing:
All of those blue seats are “available.” Crazy, right? I thought it might fill up a bit with standby passengers or last-minute flyers … but nope. It ended up being the emptiest flight I’ve ever been on — well under 50% of the seats were empty. Probably only 1/3rd full.
Wanna see what it looks like in real life? I put this video on Instagram:
So … what’s the emptiest flight you’ve ever been on?
