Alaska Airlines Gives Portland Timbers' Fans A Reason to Cheer

Almost a week ago, Alaska Airlines debuted the final product of their "Paint the Plane" contest to fans. The MLS themed plane celebrates the city's very own Portland Timbers and was a combination of designs submitted by Paul Wright of Portland, Oregon and John Bode of San Mateo, California.

As the official airline and shirt sponsor for the club, Alaska Airlines has extended another benefit to Timbers' fans who will be flying out of the Portland International Airport during the current MLS season. Alaska Airlines will extend early boarding privileges to Portland International Airport passengers wearing an official Timbers jersey throughout the 2011 MLS season.
