Korean Air highlights traditional Alaska clothing

In Alaska Travelgram by scott

When Korean Air’s inflight magazine “Morning Calm” featured her daughters in the cover article last December, JoAnn W. reached out to the airline. “I just wanted a couple of copies to show my family,” she said.

“My father-in-law who is a vet and has dementia always talks about his granddaughters being models (they are both too short).  He has seen them become international performers and I’d like for him to see them in an international magazine modeling.  In his mind today, his dream would become true!” she said.

The Korean Air staff was friendly, but since no passenger flights come through Anchorage any more, JoAnn came up empty-handed.

Since she shared her plight with me, I reached out to a couple of folks. Mark Bly, aka “The Flying Chef” came through with the goods today.

When he’s not fixing sushi or barbecuing salmon, Mark flies 747s around the world. Altho’ he was not personally responsible for locating the elusive hard-copy of “Morning Calm”, another pilot was able to do so.

Only one paper copy was available. But you can CLICK HERE to read the magazine online (registration is required). JoAnn was t-h-r-i-l-l-e-d to get a hard-copy of the magazine.

Mission Accomplished!
