Horizon Air (Alaska) - De Havilland Bombardier Q400 N435QX - University of Washington Huskies at PDX

Alaska Airlines Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 University of Washington Huskies Livery. Part of our special series of aircraft featuring West Coast universities, this livery celebrates the University of Washington Huskies.

The Husky plane was brand new when painted and as such would have been painted regardless of paint scheme. No expense was incurred by the university.

The goal of the project was to put an element of fun into the flying experience while also putting a smile on the faces of university alumni, staff and students.

The original Husky plane was unveiled on Feb. 19, 2008. The Husky plane is Bombardier Q400.

These 76-seat turboprop aircraft are the workhorses of Horizon air, using 30-40 percent less fuel and reducing emissions by the same percent than comparable sized jets.

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.

Seat Map and Seating Chart Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 Alaska Airlines Horizon Air

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.
