    It wasn't that long ago that AS utilized tape at checkin with its logo on it. It came in handy for sealing boxes, ripped suitcases, boogieboards, and cooler lids. However, on several recent trips through ANC, KOA, ORD and AUS all they have had is plain-jane 2 inch tape. What happened to this tape- does the other stuff cost less, did they get tired of people swiping it for their own collection (no I never did end up with my own personal roll :(), or is a pallet of it locked away in SEA somewhere. Has anyone seen it recently ?

    Probably cost cutting, I recall reading that WN was at one time paying an additional 10 cents to have branded garbage bags. I would rather have boring tape over job cuts and fare increases.

    That's true. Maybe they could sell it at the AS Company store. :) If all of my packing tape was AS branded tape that would be cool. :)

    That's what made me think of this... I saw an old company store box that used AS tape to seal it, and thought where did it all go...

    1'' or 2'' tape... DL let me use some recently, but of the 1'' variety and is subpar IMHO...

    it is 1". Not good for sealing large packages one checks, but sufficient for mailing packages to airline geeks to get them all excited and wet.
