    Alaska Airlines’ announcement to switch from jets to mostly outdoor-boarding turboprop planes for its service between Fairbanks and Anchorage has sent many to the company’s Facebook page to vent their frustration with the change.

    “To have us board with inclement weather is a step back in time to the late ’60s and early ’70s,” one commenter wrote.
    The outdoor boarding has been the main sticking point for many fliers, with others resorting to stronger words, capital letters and exclamation points in their posts.
    “Shame on you AK AIR!!!” another wrote. “I think replacing the 737s with Turboprops is slap in the face to the people of FAI!”
