Example one-way fares

For obvious reasons, I haven’t checked all of the routes on which Alaska Airlines is offering deals so what you see below are just a few examples of deals that looked pretty good to me.

Be aware that unless stated otherwise, all these fares are “Saver Fares” which are Alaska’s most restricted fares.

1 – Passengers are allowed one carry-on + one personal item. Overhead bin space is on a first-come, first-served basis. Elite Mileage Plan passengers keep Elite boarding status.
2 – Elite members do not receive preferred seating, or upgrade benefits with Saver fares. On all fares including Saver, Elites receive bonus miles, baggage allowances, check-in benefits, and priority boarding. All other Saver fare rules and restrictions apply to MVP®, MVP® Gold, and MVP® Gold 75k Mileage Plan members.
3 – A 24-hour cancellation policy applies to all fares. Otherwise Saver fares may not be changed or canceled. A difference in fare may apply to changes made to Main and First Class fares. A $50 fee applies to same-day confirmed changes.

  1. Do you get paid to promote these fares? Because in my city the “flash sale” fares are the same as the normal fares? Maybe that just because I live in captive AS Hub?

    I mean, I hear my friends and family go all crazy about how they can get to HI for $199ow, but I saw that fare last month, last week, yesterday, etc…

    • No. TFM has no deal with Alaska Airlines or any link to these fares and there are no affiliate links to Alaska Airlines in this article. Sorry the fares aren’t to your liking. I suggest complaining to the airline.
