Seahawks Fans Score Special Alaska Airlines Service to the Super Bowl
January 24, 2014 at 8:39 AM
For the last few weeks Alaska Airlines has been doing their best to help rescue Seattle Seahawks fans from around the country, as they’ve been flying them into town to join in on some of the game day activities. Along with Chief Football Officer—Russell Wilson—the airline is at again, and this time lucky winners just might be visiting New York and New Jersey in time for this year’s big game.
Partnering with the team's quarterback they’re calling the contest "Russell's 12th Fan Airlift,” and they’re randomly picking 56 lucky winners. Those lucky enough will score a pair of round-trip tickets on an Alaska Airlines flight over to Newark, New Jersey, as well as two nights accommodations during Super Bowl weekend. They’ll throw in access to a party over in Manhattan on the day of the game, but there’s one thing they just can’t give away—no tickets to the Super Bowl are included in this contest. That’s certainly a bummer, but we guess it’s better than nothing.
Anyway things are open now through January 26 over on the airline’s Facebook page, but just be aware that you need to be a resident of Washington, Oregon, or Alaska to enter. They’re going to reveal the big winners the following day, so you may want to start thinking of a good story to tell your boss.
Finally, for those aren’t lucky enough to score the big win there’s still a way to enjoy your next Alaska Airlines flight. Now through the Super Bowl those wearing Russell Wilson jerseys and departing from Seattle can score priority boarding for their flight. You’ll jump aboard after First Class travelers and those with frequent flyer status, so there will likely still be plenty of room available in the overhead bin for your tailgating necessities. Good luck and be sure to let us know if you win!
