I had no issues with sea sickness out of Seward. Don't you think if you've seen one glacier you've seen em all? (perhaps I'm just trying to excuse myself for not going from PWS)

United added ANC-FAI flights, looks like summer only.

In other weird news, United is now selling AS flights, but looks like rev only:

Hi, Iím looking to go to Alaska the last week of January for 3 days.
I would like to see the Northern Lights. Iíll head to Fairbanks for that.
Question is, should I stay in Fairbanks for a few days, anything else to
do there this time of year or should I head to anchorage for some activities.
How are the roads in Fairbanks, safe to drive there or should I take a guide?

How long does it take for a purchase of Alaska miles to post?

Pretty sweet:

United also has PS service scheduled for the direct EWR-ANC this summer, so looks like some actual good options this year.

Delta announces massive Alaska route expansion including JFK-ANC "weekend" service, whatever that means:

Seems that the only lie-flat seats will be on ATL-ANC, which is unfortunate. JFK-ANC is a good seven hours...

Fri/Sat only. JFK-ANC will not be useful either day, ANC-JFK Motzei Shabbos might be able to be used some weeks? It leaves 10:25pm, and Shabbos in Anchorage is over later many weeks in summer.

Ugh.

Eastern also has a direct, but Fri/Sat only as well.

At least we have UA this summer.

Hopefully all this added capacity will be helpful for pricing and availability though. I have a busy Alaska summer in the works :P.

Eastern can actually work for JFK-ANC, they are scheduling a "reverse" red-eye. Leaving JFK at 11:00pm Thursday night and arriving ANC 3:15am Friday morning - which in summer time should be somewhat light outside.

Way back would land on Shabbos.
