Re: Alaska announces 8 destinations to be served from PAE

Is AS allowed to split 1 gate into 2 E175 ground loading positions? They should allow 2 or 3 aircraft per gate. You will have to walk a little ways though. But to be as efficient as possible, they need to go all the way and use Boeing aircraft. Wouldn't the smaller E175 actually cost Alaska Airline...
