When I booked my first-ever flight with Alaska Airlines, I noticed that trading up to first class on my return flight from Seattle to Anchorage would only cost an extra couple of hundred dollars.
In my opinion, the best thing about flying Alaska Airlines first class was the seats. The seats are 20 inches wide and have a 41-inch pitch.
There are quite a few good options for eating and drinking at Anchorage Airport.
I was exhausted, so I had booked a window seat for a potential in-flight nap. I was delighted to discover that this also gave me amazing views over Alaska.
