Fly Gay at Christmas and Get a Discount
Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have a new program that offers a 10% discount to Christmas travelers, but up until recently, it was offered only if you purchase tickets through their "gay" page on the company's website.
They have changed their website, removing "Gay Travel" but note the code in the webpage url, it remains the same: http://www.alaskaair.com/as/alaska/gaytravel/LGBT-NYC-Sale
WorldNetDaily.com reported that, "Word of the discount came through an airline employee, who needed to remain anonymous because of concerns over retaliation. The employee reported the company had sent e-mails out announcing the "very soft launch" of the new promotion.
The company earlier had an offer to travel to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, under its "gay" discount, and currently is offering discounted "holiday" travel. All they have to do, according to Alaska, is enter a special discount code "when you purchase your tickets at [the "gay" web page].
The airline's special page has also promoted flights to events such as the "5th Los Angeles LGBT People of Color Film Festival," and the "8th International Conference of Gay and Lesbian Tourism."
Just writing it like it is.
