Dear Flight Attendants,
Several news outlets have reported that Alaska Airlines flight 819 from Kona to Seattle was escorted into Sea-Tac International Airport by two F-15 fighter jets and safely landed almost three hours ago. A tip was received earlier today that a hijacker may be on board the flight. Upon landing, the man in question was escorted away by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as well as Port of Seattle police. An investigation into the tipster’s claims is on-going.
The Master Executive Council (MEC) is only reporting what is now public knowledge in the interest of calming rumors. The MEC applauds the professionalism of the entire crew and we are thankful for their safe arrival!
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Terry Taylor, Yvette Gesch, Melanie Buker, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn and Sandra Morrow
