MMDE: Alaskan Airlines

Current: Alaska Airlines

Founded in 1932 as McGee Airways and currently offering 118 destinations, the famous smiling face on their tail fin cements them as a part of American/Eskimo history - but what is their name, exactly? Many swear it is "Alaskan Airllines", yet all references today show it is, and has always been, "Alaska Airlines."

Sometimes a Mandela Effect can be explained by nothing more unusual than the way our brains like to smooth out any awkwardness in speech and communication. If I were to ask you if you'd like "a apple", it's not only grammatically incorrect, it sounds more jarring than "an apple". In fact, that's the reason we now use "an" rather than "a" in situations such as this. It could be argued the same process is taking place here, except this time Alaska Airlines is not grammatically incorrect being the actual name, so we unconciously change it for the same reason as the apple example.
