Building off the seasonally-inspired Main Cabin menu, Alaska Airlines will now offer a new line of affordable bites with both savory and sweet options:


Whether traveling for business or pleasure, Alaska’s feel-good snacks and craft beer offerings will please a variety of palates with a range of choices—including vegan and gluten-free options—that allow travelers to relax and enjoy their flight.

In addition, Alaska will offer four locally-crafted West Coast brews ($7.50 each) as part of its beer rotation, which updates quarterly:

  • Fremont Lush IPA: Citra and Mosaic hops make this an IPA with a lot of flavor. High in IBUs but delicious and approachable.
