Hey–did you hear about Alaska Air‘s new bio-fuel strategy? The carrier inaugurated biofuel-powered passenger service yesterday with two flights from Seattle to Washington, D.C., and Portland, Ore. Alaska and its sister carrier, Horizon Air, are operating 75 select flights between Seattle and the two cities over the next few weeks using a 20 percent blend of sustainable biofuel made from used cooking oil. Whoa! So–are they making the actual hamburgers on board? HA
