KAYAK is a travel search engine. That means we look across the web to find the best prices we can find for our users. With over 2 billion flight queries processed yearly, we are able to display a variety of prices and options on flights to Alaska.
KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a flight to Alaska is likely to change within 7 days, so travelers know whether to wait or book now.
Hacker Fares allow you to combine one-way tickets in order to save you money over a traditional round-trip ticket. You could then fly to Alaska with an airline and back with another airline.
Sometimes travel dates aren't set in stone. If your preferred travel dates have some wiggle room, flexible dates will show you all the options when flying to Alaska up to 3 days before/after your preferred dates. You can then pick the flights that suit you best.

Pros: "Amazing crew, comfortable seat"
Cons: "Less delays and gate changes"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Pros: "Travel time was great"
Pros: "The flight was probably one of the worst I've ever taken. The seats and aisles are so narrow. You had to walk side ways to get down the aisles. Very uncomfortable flight. It was so bad I had to upgrade to first class on the return flight because I just couldn't bear it again. I was not happy ."
Cons: "Airline change time, airport, and seat asigment of our reservation. It was only thru several calls to their reservation and talked to a supervisor was I able to straight out the big mess. This has happened before with this airline when are reservation are done months in advance. I doubt we will fly American Airlines Again."
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Pros: "Fine for a domestic flight. Normally, American Airlines offer a small snack to go with the drinks. But on this particular flight, they went the United way and offered nothing but drinks. Crew was pleasant enough during the flight, although they didn't greet half of the passengers entering or exiting the plane."
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off and therefore getting to Denver. But there was no announcement about it. There was one announcement from the captain, but it was so soft that I couldn't hear anything. Upon landing and arriving at the gate, we stood there for a while with no lights on and seatbelt sign on, but no explanation of what was going on. There was no welcome to Denver message either. Maybe their announcement system was down."
Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."
Pros: "Arrived a little early and without incident."
Cons: "Flight attendant had a problem with my wife asking for Coke Zero. There was one can left and she was reluctant to serve it to her."
Pros: "Had a exit row seat so we had extra space. Of course we had to pay extra for it. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Old plane with an overhead TV. :("
Pros: "Delays, delays, delays. An initial delay of 1.5 hours due to a switched plane. Then they needed mechanics to check out a bird hit to the plane. That took another 3 hours to happen. And they boarded us first, then found the issue, deplaned us, had a gate switch and then the wait. Very frustrating! Once on board, everything went smoothly as it typically does."
Cons: "The long delay"
Cons: "It took 30 ish minutes to wait in line to speak to to an AA rep about what my next steps were to get home from Dallas."
Pros: "efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag."
Cons: "Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!"
Pros: "Very comfy and much to entertain you with"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Cons: "Connection was late and missed boarding by 25 seconds. The plane wasn't gone, but the door was locked. 25 seconds. Now sleeping in the airport."
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "The service was super"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Flight was late eariving at gate in Dallas and missed connection to Nashville. However, was put on a flight that left just 2 hours later"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "The staff was rude. I witnessed a crew member yelling at a a pregnant lady for trying to use the first class restroom when the other restroom was blocked off because there was a cart in the way. I also had a crew member yell because I put a water bottle in her trash bag. She literally yelled "I'm standing here," which I am still not sure what she meant by that. I was definitely taken back by how rude the staff was. I have never had an experience like that with United or Virgin,"
Cons: "Out would be helpful if there was a visual cure at boarding of what group is "now boarding". It's not always possible too hear over the noise. You also might as well tell group 3 and 4 passengers to check luggage in advance to encourage an on time gate departure."
Pros: "Very smooth"
Cons: "I didn't not like anything."
Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Pros: "After boarding and a 20 min wait seated we were told we had to leave the plane because of the broken something . It was fixed and we were off about two hours late. Fresno is a beautiful easy airport."
Pros: "Crew was nice and understanding how uncomfortable the flight was."
Cons: "The seats are now smaller than ever. AA made them more marrow, closer together and less reclining. With 1.2 mil miles I am switching to drlta."
Cons: "No food or drinks on this flight"
Pros: "The quiet."
Pros: "on time..."
Pros: "I'm grateful for Kayak's policy of fully refunding tickets purchased and not used within 24 hours. Were it not for Kayak, I'd be out my money for a flight I couldn't take."
Cons: "I purchased this ticket to attend my cousin's funeral. Sadly, the flight was delayed so far beyond its original departure that I missed his funeral and could not take the flight."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "the plane was old and uncomfortable. No entertainment although it was a long international flight."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and all was good."
Cons: "It would be nice if it offered some kind if entertainment Not everyone has a portable device.."
Pros: "Nothing I travel with service animal had to sit in my lap as plane is so small people are packed in like sardines"
Cons: "This is my 3rd time on this same flight and the last two times have been miserable due to plane being small and flight full there is no room to move your legs and my service animal is so stressed from not being able to move for a 5 hour flight that it's become unimaginable to fly this trip again on this carrier"
