User: Alaska Line / Alaska Steamship Co.
Date of saucer: 1930s – 1948
Notes: The Alaska Steamship Company was formed in 1894. Due to various government regulations, the company eventually enjoyed a near monopoly on service between Alaska and the lower 48 states. It ceased passenger service in 1954 due to labor problems, the ending of government subsidies and competition from airlines. Rising costs caused the company to shut down all operations in 1971.
