RIP Horizon Air 2011

Alaska Airlines is going to shutter branded flying for its Horizon Air wholly owned subsidiary in 2011.

This is according to Air Transport World.

I guess we will still fly Horizon Air planes (once they dump the Canadair CRJ-700s it will be an all DHC8-Q400 fleet) but the rationale for keeping the brand going as a separate entity must be waning.

Interestingly the 2 letter code is QX which is also the tax code for PFC... some accounting people will be happy
