Alaska Airlines Fleet Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 Details and Pictures

Alaska Airlines Fleet Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 Details and Pictures. A turboprop aircraft designed for shorter distance flights, the Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 features 76 comfortable seats and boarding doors in both the front and rear of the plane for faster passenger loading and deplaning.

Alaska Airlines Fleet Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 Cabin Interior Class Configuration and Seats Layout

The windows on many of these aircraft do not have shades, so if you are flying at sunrise or sunset you may want to pick a seat on the opposite side from the sun.

Although this aircraft has a 2×2 arraignment, the Q400 offers ample headroom compared to other regional jets thanks to its taller cabin design and offers leather seating as well, however, none of the seats on this aircraft recline.

It also features an active noise and vibration suppression system to improve passenger comfort.  Passengers are often asked to change seats due to weight considerations.

Alaska Airlines also offers an “ala carte” carry-on service on these flights for larger, roll aboard bags.  An agent will tag the bag and place it in the hold for customers.  Upon arrival, customer baggage will be returned to them planeside.

The seats in Bombardier Q400 operated by Alaska Airlines are located in 20 rows: first row contains only 2 seats, 18 rows have 2-2 configuration and the last row also contains 2 seats.

Passengers of the seats 1AB and 2DE will take advantage of additional legroom. These seats are considered the best seats. However, these seats have some disadvantages: reduced width of the seats because the tray tables are built-in the armrests making them immovable and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing. Also passengers of the seats 1AB may feel some discomfort due to lavatories located in front.

The seats of the rows 7-9 are noisy because are located close to the propeller.

Wing and engine block the view for passengers of the seats A and E of the rows 7-16.

The main disadvantage of the seats A and E of the rows 10 and 12-16 is obstructed view because of the engines and propellers located in the area of these seats.

Missing windows make the seats 11A and 11E bad seats.

The only disadvantage of the seats 18D and 19B is close location to the galley.

The noise from the galleys may be also bothersome for passengers of the seats 19DE and 20AB. These seats are considered bad seats. However other passengers report that these seats are quiet and they are first to deplane.
