Alaska Airlines became the launch customer for the 737-900 in 2001, when Iditarod Trail sled-dog race champion Doug Swingley and his team escorted the first aircraft out of the factory for its world premiere rollout celebration in Renton, WA.
The Boeing 737-900 has 172 space-saving Recaro seats, seatback outlets, Boeing’s award-winning Sky Interior and inflight internet service. We’re also adding Boeing’s innovative Space Bins to these aircraft. The larger overhead bins have a similar look and feel to Alaska’s current pivot bins, yet will hold 48 percent more bags than the current bins. The deeper bins allow more bags to be stowed, and let customers load bags with less struggle.
