Cannot understand how the AK pilot could be low on fuel if it was his primary destination.
Depends on the definition of "low fuel". Certainly didn't mean they only had 5 minutes left. When you're about to loose the option to go to your alternate, then that's already a "low fuel" situation to me. If anything unexpected happened at your primary airport and the runway was suddenly closed (runway blocked), you're doomed without the option to go the alternate...

Right, he might have burned through his contingency fuel and was about to start using his diversion fuel.  Mind you, diversion fuel to SFO or Oakland can't be much.

Or if the weather is good, they can plan no alternate.

Doesn't Part 121 always have to file an alternate? I know Part 91 does not.
