Alaska Airlines unraveling bad weather air passenger pileups

Alaska Airlines had more trouble today with its flights heading in and out of airports in Washington and Oregon. Extreme winter weather has hampered airports in both states, shutting down the Portland airport entirely. A limited number of Alaska flights made it to and from Seattle today. Marianne Lindsay is a spokesperson for the company. Echoing the likely sentiments of many passengers, she says the cancelations couldn’t have happened at a worse time.

Lindsey says normal schedules are expected to resume tomorrow. Customers who need refunds or want to rebook can call go online or call the airline’s customer service number (1-800-654-5669). Lindsey says hold times are long, but should be improving.
