Get ready to experience a journey of flavors this summer as we unveil our seasonal First Class menu and all cabin premium beverage line-up!  

Our chef-curated First Class summer menu is carefully crafted with a symphony of seasonal ingredients and vibrant flavors from up and down the west coast. Travelers love variety and we’re making sure to offer something for everyone. Entrees include made-from-scratch Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes served with pecan-candied bacon, Summer Shrimp & Linguine served with a bright lemon-dill sauce and a Seattle take on Teriyaki Chicken, with flavors of charred ginger & garlic! 

Whether traveling for pleasure or business, our guests can now savor a taste of excellence while enjoying the comforts of Alaska’s First Class experience, including high-quality chef driven meals, premium beverages,  care in the sky from our best in class Flight Attendants and the most legroom in First Class*,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, managing director of guest products at Alaska Airlines. “We’re excited for our guests to discover our 2024 First Class summer menu that captures the season with every bite.” 

In addition to our new First Class menu, which is now available for selection using our industry-leading pre-order option, we’re excited to announce a refreshing summer beverage line-up.  Our seasonal drink menu starts next month and includes a range of options to enhance the travel experience—from our premium beers, fine wines and refreshing non-alcoholic options. 

We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Portland-based Straightaway Cocktails and introduce a new gin-based Bee’s Knees cocktail with honey & lemon that is sure to brighten any flight. We’re also debuting a new sparkling brut with lively citrus aromas from Walla-Walla based Waterbrook Winery. California-based Sierra Nevada is welcomed back onboard with their Summerfest Lager, and for guests looking for a non-alcoholic beer option, try Best Day Brewing Electro Lime Cerveza beer.  

For our guests in First Class, we’ll be introducing a 5th generation family winery out of Lodi, CA, appropriately named Gen5. Varietals include a crisp Sauvignon Blanc with notes of citrus & tropical fruits, with the Ancestral Red Blend features dark berries and a spiced finish. In our Main Cabin, Broken Earth’s 50th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon will be available alongside a new Chardonnay from Pull Winery – both from the Paso Robles area.  

Summer isn’t complete without a cool treat to escape the heat. Our new seasonal Salt & Straw flavors feature sun-kissed flavors of summer fruit that will leave you craving for one more scoop.
