Alaska Airlines has a new fare sale for travel between now and Dec. 15. The fares are pretty good, especially to select destinations within Alaska.

Within Alaska, the rates are good seven days a week. For flights outside the state, day-of-week restrictions vary. There is a two-week advance purchase required–but all tickets must be purchased by Aug. 14, 2010.
