Seattle to Anchorage $78 each way Alaska, Delta and JetBlue May-June; $101 July-August

Seattle to Anchorage, Alaska is priced at $78.24 each way for travel most dates in May or June with a fare war between Alaska Airlines, Delta and JetBlue for $156 round trip tickets. The price only rises to $101 each way for most July and August dates. Anchorage is like a low cost carrier ticket price these days from many west coast airports.

The departure and arrival times of these flights kind of suck with midnight arrivals in Anchorage and 6am arrivals in Seattle.

These same low fares are also available for Portland PDX flights to Anchorage.

Here are the number of dates each month with low $78 one-way fares:
