Alaska Airlines has debuted a new systemwide sale, and it's better than listed! The sale promotes discounted fares for travel Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, but I found availability was much broader, including most days of the week, though excluding Fridays and Sundays, and in many cases beyond May 20.
The advertised travel period and travel days of the week are listed below. Some routes have low fares outside of these dates and/or for travel on other days of the week.
- Travel Period: March 3 - May 20
- Travel Days of the Week: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays for most routes
- Travel to/from Hawaii: Mondays through Thursdays
Travel days on international routes and specific domestic markets (like Florida and New Orleans) vary depending on when service is offered and the direction of travel. Click on the fare details below for more booking info.
Tickets must be purchased at least 21 days before departure and by Monday, March 2 at 11:59 pm PT.
All fares are nonstop and also work in the reverse direction.
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 wider 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. Southwest does not sell Basic Economy and includes two free checked bags.
As an example, I found nonstop flights departing Everett PAE on March 31 returning from Portland, OR, PDX on April 7 for $92.30 roundtrip.
