Alaska Airlines retires the Airbus A320

Alaska Airlines is gradually getting back to “Proudly All Boeing” as it was before the Virgin America takeover and merger.

The airline operated its last Airbus A320 revenue flight on January 9, 2023. Nine Airbus A320s were retired by Alaska on this day.

The aircraft are being ferried to Victorville, CA for storage.

The last A320 revenue flight was operated with the pictured Airbus A320 N849VA.
