Last week was the start of football season with Americans around the United States celebrating the return of the NFL and football Sundays. Alaska Airlines joins the celebration.

 

Alaska Airlines, a Seattle-based airline, is celebrating the Seattle Seahawks by unveiling its fourth Russell Wilson livery. The Boeing 737-900ER aircraft was introduced to fans waiting for a flight from Seattle (SEA) to Indianapolis (IND), where Alaska’s chief football officer, as Wilson is known, was set to take the field in his first game of the season.

 

“When we can celebrate Russell Wilson in the stands and in the skies, that’s a win-win,” said Sangita Woerner, senior vice president of marketing and guest experience, Alaska Airlines. “We’re proud to honor the passion and dedication of our Chief Football Officer with this special aircraft, and we’re excited to see him soar all season long.”

 

The new theme features a larger-than-life Russell Wilson. Fans who wear a No. 3 Wilson jersey or a limited-edition Alaska’s Russell Wilson shirt (available from Alaska Company Store) can board early for all Seattle and Everett (PAE) departing flights for the rest of the football season.

 

The plane will fly throughout Alaska’s network all season long. Fans should keep an eye out for additional Russell Wilson and Alaska fun this football season by following Alaska Airlines.

AMERON Zürich Bellerive au Lac Review

The Hotel AMERON Zurich Bellerive au Lac, forged from the collaborative efforts of interior design firm Monoplan AG and other cutting-edge design firms, bills itself as a celebration of the 1920s and ‘30s aesthetic. The story behind it is compelling as the building dates to 1928 and has connections with the early days of Switzerland's movie industry. However, there are several fun Mid-Century Modern and late 20th-century design touches in the public and private areas. Clearly, it's going for the "modern luxury" vibe Millennial and Gen-X business and leisure travelers look for when seeking a quality smaller property with a great location.

The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago Review

Though the Chicago area has been my home for decades, the view from the Water Tower Suite on the 26th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago made me gasp. I had admired Chicago’s dramatic skyline many times, but never from this angle. Through expansive windows, the skyscrapers of 900 N. Michigan Ave. and the John Hancock Center, now named 875 North Michigan Avenue, rose to my right. Far below, the landmark Chicago Water Tower nestled in a ring of trees. One of the few survivors of the Great Chicago Fire, a turning point in the city’s history being remembered on its 150th anniversary in 2021, the Gothic Revival relic resembled a fairy-tale castle in a children’s playset.
