Detailed Air Fare list: roundtrip, all-in, including taxes, fees

In Airfares, Alaska Travelgram, Consumer, Shopping by scott

Okay–Here’s a little air fare rundown in light of the FAA reauthorization, which mandates that airlines collect the 7.5 percent aviation tax. There still are some deals out there. The majority of these deals are available between now and Oct. 10, 2011. Above, one of Alaska Airlines‘ Disney-themed 737s.

ALL fares are ROUNDTRIP, including ALL mandatory taxes and fees. I’ve listed dates that I ACTUALLY BOOKED the fare, so I know it’s legit, etc. Of course, prices vary day-to-day, but this list should be a good benchmarking tool. Speaking of benches, I kinda like the one I’m resting my feet on (below). We stayed at a lovely condo in Manzanillo, Mex., just a couple of hours south of Guadalajara (see KILLER air fare, below).

oh…just for grins…check out these “bargain” rates:

Anchorage-Seattle $496 on Alaska (uh…in a category by itself–wouldn’t you agree?)
Anchorage-Portland $534 on Alaska (blecch)

As always, it’s better to plan ahead. If you need a travel agent to fuss with this stuff, I recommend mine: Kelly Jo at USTravel: (907)561-2434 or (800)544-2217. She charges $38 to write your ticket–but she (or the other professionals at USTravel) can drill down quickly and find the right flight/right price. She’ll book your hotel and rental car, too. Cruises, Hawaii, the works. Tell her I sent you.
