After debating whether or not to post a $450 Alaska deal out of NY/NJ for the last week, the Guys at United solved my dilemma. Getting to Alaska for under $400 is just NOT usually possible... AT ALL.
Boston to AK usually runs AT LEAST $650. This saves very nearly 50% off of what I would expect to pay, and get's you there on a major carrier with some dates Non-Stop.
There are two reasons AK flights never go on sale.
- It's a long way from the East Coast to the far FAR North West. Lots of fuel = lots of cost.
- It's a pretty specific location with not a huge amount of flex visitors. Airlines love to hammer the prices for spots like this (reference: JAC / Jackson Hole, Wyoming)
Those are the same two reasons you need to jump on this flight to GUARANTEE the 2018 Ski / Snowboard Season will be something you won't soon forget.
Ski + Snowboard
If you have a few minutes to kill in the pursuit of Alaskan stoke (20 mins run time), this one is absolutely worth a watch:
For those anywhere in the Boston vicinity who (like me) have AK on their lift list, now is the time. I have not once seen it this cheap in the past and I do not expect it to be this cheap again in the foreseeable future.
Buy the Flight, and throw some Gasoline on on the fire to get your 2018 season started right.
