Alaskan Airways is inviting pilots to join the virtual airline.

Alaskan Airways flies its aircraft in one of the most beautiful places to fly in, Alaska. Sudden and drastic weather changes are common in Alaska – the weather can quickly change from clear blue skies to zero visibility, all of which add to the fun and excitement of flying in Alaska.

I want to weigh in on this topic because it not accurate. I am the CEO and President of the newly formed Alaskan Airways. The advertisement you have placed here is for Virtual Alaska Airlines not for our organization, Alaskan Airways. We would ask that you please change the title to reflect the correct airline.

Anyone looking for our new airline ALASKAN AIRWAYS please look for us at

Thank you Mike Schmitt Alaskan Airways CEO and President

Dear Mike,

Sorry for the mix-up here. Just to confirm, do you want the logo and web address changed?
