The happiest about this redesign is most likely the old "a", which isn't getting kicked in the nuts anymore by the "k". Gone too is the rough-edged look that hinted at the wilder and nature-y aspect of Alaska. It's cleaner and crisper, sure, but what remains is an awkward wordmark with less personality than its predecessor.
