How to Get Early Boarding on Alaska Airlines at SEA This NFL Season

Football season is around the corner, and in the spirit, Seattle’s hometown airline, Alaska Airlines, has introduced a unique way passengers without elite status or the airline’s credit card can board early.

Passengers who wear Russell Wilson’s #3 football jersey will get to board early on flights departing from SEA. Russell is not only the Seattle Seahawks quarterback but also the carrier’s “Chief Football Officer,” as seen in the video above. The perk lasts from now until the end of the regular season. And if you fly Alaska, be sure to check out my monthly column in their in-flight magazine!
