From Austin to Boston–it’s a low fare roundup

In Airfares, Alaska Travelgram, Consumer, Shopping by scott

Let’s take a look at the lowest fares–and what they mean for travelers. Thanks to our friends at USTravel for the 4-1-1 on the low fares. Call Kelly Jo or one of the fine professionals here in Anchorage: (907)561-2434. Or, check the website for the location nearest you. Ketchikan, Kodiak, Dutch Harbor, Fairbanks….Seattle. You know….everywhere. HA.

Coupla things: not all fares are created equal. I grabbed what I think are the lowest, best rates. But you may want a more direct routing, a different date–or stick with your preferred carrier. Fine–it’s amazing what money will buy! Your USTravel agent can drill down and get the right answer for you…there is a $38 ticketing fee. Folks–it’s all fee-for-service these days.

Most of the low rates are for travel between now and Oct. 10. After that–well, I can’t think about it. HA.

All fares are roundtrip, including all taxes and fees. Check with your USTravel agent for hotel and car reservations.  I’ve grouped these cities in my own random order….hope this helps. Oh–check out the photo (below) of “McDuff” , one of the U.S. Marshalls’ Service’s detection dogs. He shared the First Class cabin on a recent Alaska Airlines flight from Seattle to Anchorage. Great company, too. Good news: no incidents with passengers or cabin baggage on Alaska #89.
