We’re springing into the season with a fresh and chef-curated inflight menu carefully crafted to join our premium food and beverage line-up—launching this month! As the premier West Coast airline, we’re giving our dishes a West Coast flair with strong influences from Asian and Latin American cuisines. 

As always, the inspiration for creating our menu is based on our guests’ feedback and that’s exactly what we did when developing our spring offerings,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, managing director of guest products at Alaska Airlines. “This is a just a precursor to an exciting year ahead. We can’t wait to share what’s to come on our a premium food and beverage line-up.” 

In First Class, we’re offering meals inspired by dishes from around the world, while adding a West Coast flair, including Birria Beef and Ube Island Pancakes. In Premium Class and Main Cabin, we’re serving fresh salads including the Caul Me Maybe, which is a Mediterranean inspired Salad created in partnership with Seattle-based Evergreens.

Our newest menu is available now, complimentary in First Class on most flights 670 miles and above, and for purchase in Main Cabin on most flights 775 miles or more.
