These fares include one carry-on bag plus one small personal item. Checked bag fees start at $30 each way.
Saver Fares allow for limited seat selection in the back of the aircraft. However, finding seats next to a travel partner may be difficult on some routes. If you choose not to select a seat, one will be assigned to you during check-in.

Alaska's Main fares are usually around $10-$35 more each way and include a larger selection of seats to choose from and allow ticket changes/upgrades for a fee. Checked bag fees are the same $30 each way.
Other major airlines that are matching are mostly Basic Economy fares with similar restrictions. The main difference is that United's Basic Economy only includes a small personal item. Hawaiian, JetBlue, and Southwest do not sell Basic Economy, and Southwest includes two free checked bags.
As an example, I found seats departing Los Angeles LAX on Wednesday, January 15, returning from San Francisco SFO on Saturday, January 18, for $77 roundtrip.
