When it comes to public areas where you are most free to surrender self-awareness and self-consciousness, lounging on a multi-hour airline flight is probably prime territory. Coincidentally, it's also a venue where virtual reality companies see an opportunity to open people to a world of VR content. Today, Alaska Airlines announced that it will be partnering with Skylights to bring the startup's latest hardware to a couple of its routes in a pilot (ha) program.
Some first class Alaska Airlines passengers might find themselves face to face with a virtual reality headset rather than the plane's usual in-flight entertainment system. The airline will pilot SkyLights' Allosky Cinematic VR headset aboard its Seattle-Boston and Boston-San Diego routes. It will give passengers access to immersive 3D and forward-facing 360 degree films, though they can also choose to watch in 2D in case the combination of 3D and plane travel is a bit too much to handle.
The SeaTac-based airline is working with a French company, SkyLights, to try a new virtual reality (VR) headset in the first-class cabin, becoming the first airline to test the technology inflight in North America.
Airlines struggled to start 2018. As we head into the end of the year, Barclays sees the sales gap widening between the haves and the have-nots.
Airlines are trying to persuade economy-class passengers that they can buy meals on the plane as good as they would find in a restaurant. Inc. said Monday it is forming a partnership with Zoës Kitchen, a Mediterranean-inspired fast-casual dining chain, to offer a menu with choices including a pita-and-veggie meal with two types of hummus, a turkey “Gruben” sandwich, and waffles with hazelnut spread and fresh berries for breakfast.
Alaska Airlines has unveiled a new fall menu in first class cabins on flights from Chicago to the West Coast.
United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue Airways have also raised their fees. American Airlines AAL , the world's largest airline, will charge customers $5 more for the first and second checked bags for travel in the U.S., Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and the Caribbean, the company said Thursday. Certain AAdvantage members will continue to be eligible for free checked bags.

The daily On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line tells a very bullish story as it has been going straight up from late May and tells us that buyers of ALK have been very aggressive.
Frontier Airlines, the 10th largest U.S. airline by passengers carried, says it won't change for date-change fees 90 days or more before a flight, and cuts fees for those made up to two weeks before the date of travel. Fare changes still apply.
