For all the pilots, 
Once the wings go on, they never come off whether they can be seen or not . . .
When a good pilot leaves the 'job' and retires, many are jealous, some are pleased and yet others, who may have already retired, wonder . . .
We wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because we already know . . .

Retiree Information: 
New location for retiree lunch 

The monthly retiree’s lunch meeting has moved from Everett to Federal Way, Wash. All Alaska Airlines retirees are invited to attend. This lunch is on the last Monday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Old Country Buffet ( 1816 South 320th St., Federal Way, Wash., 98003).  The room has a limit of 60 people. 
 It is hoped that the move to Federal Way will enable more retirees to attend the events since many now live in the south King County area. The price of the buffet is $10 per person, which includes a buffet lunch, beverage, tax and tip. It is a special group price. Go to for more information about the Old Country Buffet. 
We will greatly miss Smokey Schnee, retired Maintenance & Engineering manager, who recently passed away. For many years, Smokey organized the retiree lunches in Everett. He did a wonderful job and it is deeply appreciated. Succeeding Smokey as luncheon organizer is Nancy Juntwait. Nancy is a retired customer service agent for Alaska Airlines.
