Default Airfare from LAX

I got a quote on Expedia for $575 on United (blech) LAX-Vancouver then Anchorage-LAX (with a change in planes, I forget where). Is this a reasonable price? How much do cruise lines charge when they bundle airfare?

Hi MJ,
When are you going to Alaska? Reason I ask, I found that you need to keep checking, sometimes they will go lower, so if you still have time, which I think you will, you may find a better flight and price down the road. Earlier this year we got airfare to Vancouver, non-stop from Chicago O'hare for just about $500 round trip. When I first start checking the same flight was $800, so be patient and hopefully you can save a few bucks and may-be end up with a flight that doesn't stop depending on your departure airport. Also, do check the individual airlines themselves, thats where I found the cheaper flight.

Good luck and what ship are you cruising on?

Try a comparison with Alaska Airlines. It should be competitive.

Also, United codeshares (with Air Canada [blech-stale sandwich for lunch and a bag of chips for dinner]) between LAX-YVR as I believe they only have 1 flight a day. So do some checking.

Cruising on the Coral Princess out of Vancouver on June 21. Having never flown into one city and out of another (other than on unrestricted business fares, forget that), I really don't know what kind of fares to expect.

If you fly to Seattle on Southwest or another discount carrier and rent a car to Vancouver
you van save quite a bit on your first leg. Any international flight is going to be quite a bit more expensive due to taxes, etc. A car can be rented in Seattle and dropped off right at the pier in Vancouver for well under $100. It is only about a two hour drive. The one-way ticket from Anchorage is the real killer on airfare.This is worth checking out and it's a pleasant drive, besides.

Our air add-on through Carnival from San Jose, CA was $499, into Vancouver and out of Anchorage for next June. Very reasonable. Check the cruise line rates.
