    Default Reserve Now!

    If you live in the Lower 48 and plan to fish AK during the summer of 2007, you need to act on it, right now.

    This is especialy true if you are using frequent flyer miles and are going for a free airline ticket. These vouchers are carefuly controlled and most passage carriers limit the bookings to only 10% of the plane's capacity. Because of this, flights to and from AK are alreading reaching capacity and some are already closed.

    I'm not joking. It took me an hour 2 days ago to work through through these limitations to achieve a free ticket for mid-July.

    As the fish run, so do the travelers. Reserve now to get your seat...

    I'm not at all convinced that the FF seats are even available a year in advance like general bookings.

    I know a coupla years ago I wuz looking for a simple FF seat from seattle to Ketch, and there were none. Alaska Air said the weren't available "yet", and I would need to "keep checking". And one day (oh, 4-6 months out), there they were, and a week or so later, they were gone. And then a month later, there were some more. I'm not even sure they have FF seats on all routes or flights.

    Anyone know exactly what the system is for when frequent flyer seats become available on alaska air (I don't)?

    If you're going to the 2007 Alaska State Sporting Clays Championship from the lower 48, buy your tickets NOW!!

    Alaska Airlines has their "Fun Fares" up on their website. Last year round trip from Orange County CA to Anchorage was $750, right now it's $450.

    The 2007 Alaska State Sporting Clays Championship is the first week in August. See you there

    All seats become available 329 in advance.

    Default Frequent Flyer in the know...

    The only way to know how many days you can book ahead is to telephone the frequent flyer desk of your projected airline carrier, and they all vary.

    I have found myself calling them as early as a minute after midnight on the very day that you can book.

    Be agressive on this one and you'll make it. My July 2007 flight from FL to AK only cost me $20 in taxes. I'm flying First Class and if I had paid for that trip the price would have been almost three grand...

    Default FF miles

    I booked mine too a couple of weeks ago from FL to Alaska. How many sky miles did you have to use for first class?

    Default First Class...

    It took 45,000 sky miles.
    I burned 90,000 for two sets of tickets.

    Life is short.
    Do it with style whenever you get the chance...
