  1. This sounds like a very tough letter.
    If the child was really young, like 2 or 3 them the airline is wrong but, if by “Young CVhild” you mean 9 yr old, with no underlying issues, then tghe family is wrong.
    They knew the child would need to wear a mask.
    Also, it seems it’s not a permanent ban. The end of the letter says, we hope you will consider flying with us again etc etc
    HA !!
    That was funny.

  2. The post says “child”, while the letter is addressed to “you”, as in adults.
    The post says “permanent ban”, while the letter states a review of the case within 30 days, when the duration of the ban will be addressed, AND the hope to have these people as their passengers, in the future.

    Now, if the second part is patently false, as is easily seen in the text of the letter, may I assume that the “child” in the first part is, likewise, misinformation, and that adults were actually involved?

    Remember that almost true is totally false. It’s either 100% Emes, or it isn’t Emes at all, and that sensationalism usually ends up working against its promoters.

    • um, so, uhh, it CLEARLY states “you will not be permitted to fly with us again.
      Yes the investigation may overturn the ruling, but barring any “overturn” it is already decided.

      Furthermore, the fact that it says “you” is because it is a “conveyer belt” letter, it wasnt typed up for her.

      It irks me when people are convinced of conspiracy.

  3. Dear Alaska Airlines,

    In as much as the airline industry has become a bunch of horses pitoots over the past few years, going extremely overboard in enforcing mask mandates, by requesting you wear a mask that clearly has written on its box that it does not help protect against CCP virus, I wish you nothing but the worst and I really hope you go out of business very very soon.

    Sincerely yours,

    A former frequent flyer.

  4. I hope Delta’s request for an industry wide flight ban list comes into existence soon. I’m tired of reading about angry/rude people assaulting flight attendants and refusing reasonable requests.

  5. Dear Alaska Airlines,
    Respect for oneself and others is overlooked by many. Great job in making sure that your customers and employees are safe.
    From a happy customer.

  6. Thank you Alaska. After two years people should know the rules by now, or do think they don’t apply to them. Privileged perhaps. If you don’t like rules, stay in your house

  7. Dear Alaska,
    Thank you for enforcing the rules. As a frequent flyer, I applaud you.
    Everyone knows the rules when they purchase the tickets. If they’re not willing to follow them, don’t allow them on board. For those of us who travel as part of our work, the single Largest viral vector are airports and flights. I am on flights weekly and while I do not enjoy wearing a mask, I do it as a courtesy and because it is the rule. It is about time for consequences for peoples actions.
    For those who wish to act out on flights or refuse refuse to follow crew orders orders, keeping them off flights permanently we’ll be good for everyone.. Even after we come out of this current mess.
    Thank you for keeping those of us who travel frequently safe.

  8. Alaska Airlines remains the best and as a frequent flyer I can attest that the flight attendants are very clear during boarding that the policy is set by the FAA and Alaska together, and that it is there to protect everyone. The selfish unamerican attitudes by the troublemakers shouldn’t be tolerated. The pilots and flight crew are always applauded when they remove someone from a flight. Thank you Alaska Airlines; I will continue to fly with you for my third million miles.
