Otros requisitos de la FAA para la fila de salida de emergencia

Además de los requisitos de la FAA mencionados, los clientes que viajan con una mascota en la cabina, y los que requieren una extensión para cinturones, no pueden sentarse en una fila de salida de emergencia.

Nota: Solamente se pueden utilizar en el avión las extensiones de cinturón de seguridad provistas por Alaska Airlines. El uso de extensiones de cinturón de seguridad no está permitido en las filas de salidas de emergencia por la seguridad de todos los pasajeros debido a la posibilidad de enredarse con las extensiones.
