Alaska Airlines Seattle-Tacoma to Pittsburgh
Alaska Airlines launched services between Seattle-Tacoma and Pittsburgh on 6 September. This striking cake revealed at the launch reflects Seattle’s reputation as the US’ coffee capital, with a cup of Starbucks spilling the (marzipan) beans on top of the famous Seattle Market Center sign. The route will face no direct competition.
