Text A Flight On Alaska

RSS

Alaska Airlines launched mobile site (m.alaskaair.com) for passengers can book a flight, check gate information, pay for bags, select a seat and check departure times from their iPhones, Blackberries, Android-powered or other devices, including tablets. 

The airline also enables texting via Flight Status On The Go, which provides passengers similar features. Here's an example that Alaska Airlines provides: for a passenger on Flight 825, a person could text 825 and receive the following text:

Alaska Flight Status
#825 - Thur Sept 13
Depart: SAN @ Gate 16
Sched: 7:00 a.m.
Actual: ETD 7:00 a.m.
Arrive: OGG @ Gate 5
Sched: 9:42 a.m.
Actual: ETA 9:42 a.m.

That sounds handy!
