Alaska airlines food options are not included in the price of main cabin ticket holders you can, however, buy a range of quality meals and snacks depending on your flight time. Currently, the airline offers a new seasonal food menu in main cabin available until November 15, 2018, after that the menu will change once again. The airline spent a year researching, hosting tastings with passengers and crew and came up with the new concept that will offer fresh and local ingredients. Expect to see seasonal fruit, artisan bread and cage-free eggs.

Non-alcoholic beverages are still free! Onboard purchases may be made with any Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. (Debit and gift cards are accepted too). Passengers in Alaska without credit/debit cards can buy $6 vouchers at ticket counters in Alaska.


Complimentary non-alcoholic drinks as well as small snacks are served, if you like you may purchase items from the airline’s inflight menu which can be viewed right here.

New meal options include The croissant sandwich with Applewood-smoked bacon, a cage-free hard-boiled egg, fresh greens and avocado mayo. It will be served between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. on flights over 3 hours.

The Protein Platter has Greek yogurt, almonds, seasonal fruit, Beecher’s Flagship Cheese, a cage-free hard-boiled egg, pita bread, and non-GMO turkey. It will be served between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. on flights over 3 hours.

The West Coast Cobb Salad combines mixed greens, rotisserie chicken, grilled asparagus, Applewood-smoked bacon, crumbled Beecher’s cheese, fresh avocado, grape tomatoes and a bright lemon-basil vinaigrette. This is served only on coast-to-coast and Hawaii flights.


Since November 2016 the airline launched their new Premium Cabin space where you will receive a complimentary Lite Bites snack box, as well as items such as chocolate, almonds, cranberries. Cocktails, wine and beer, are also free.


First class meals have also been revamped recently. Meal options in the past have included brioche French toast with rhubarb thyme compote, maple syrup and scrambled eggs for breakfast. Dinner may include options such as miso ginger beef with mesclun mix, tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes and ginger vinaigrette.

New snack baskets will also supplement meals or replace existing snacks. All meals will offer fresh, seasonal produce such as berries, arugula and leeks with the aim of supporting healthier and more sustainable foods that support local companies. Brands such as Roons, a bakery in Portland,  Sweet Lady Jane, a bakery in Los Angeles and Cucina Fresca, based in Seattle are collaborating with the airline.


Beer and wine are free on Horizon Air Q400 services, but this service is not available on Skywest or Horizon Air E-175 aircraft. Expect to see wine and beers from California, Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest. Further info right here.
