This mousepad is a recreation of a West Coast Airlines vintage bag sticker from the early 1950's.

West Coast Airlines was a regional airline (then called a "local service" airline as defined by the federal Civil Aeronautics Board) linking smaller destinations in the Pacific Northwest with larger cities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Montana, California and north to Alberta in Canada. Its headquarters was in the Westlake area of Seattle, Washington.

West Coast was formed in 1941 and acquired Empire Airlines (formerly Zimmerly Airlines) in 1952. The company was based at Boeing Field, Seattle, and began scheduled passenger service in 1946 with a fleet of Douglas DC-3s marketed as Scenicliners. Virtually all West Coast flights at Seattle used Boeing Field (BFI) instead of Seattle/Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Following the merger of West Coast with Bonanza and Pacific in 1968, Air West and successor air carrier Hughes Airwest continued to use Boeing Field until all DC-9 and F-27 flights were moved to SEA in the early 70s. West Coast's lineage runs through a string of mergers: In 1980 Hughes Airwest was acquired by Republic Airlines which had been created by a merger of Southern Airways and North Central Airlines in 1979. In 1986 Republic Airlines was acquired by Northwest Airlines (formerly Northwest Orient Airlines). The Delta-Northwest merger with Delta Air Lines as the surviving air carrier was completed in 2010.
