Alaska Airlines has launched an “End of Fall Sale” that enables travelers to get flights from $49 each-way for travel between October 10 and December 11. There’s some nice deals to be had here: Seattle to Vegas for $89 each way; San Francisco to Portland for $69 each way; and Los Angeles to San Jose for $59 each way. However, as with most airfare sales, the deals won’t last forever. This sale ends at midnight (okay, 11:59 pm) PT on Thursday, October 3rd. Also, some blackout dates do apply.
Here’s some more travel news you can use:
