Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the cool, crisp mornings and beautiful colors of the turning foliage. Fall is also a fabulous time to travel. As a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines, I’ve learned many tricks of the trade. Alaska offers lots of great deals this time of year, on our ever-expanding flight routes. (A special note to my Portland friends and family: Alaska now flies non-stop from PDX to New York via Newark!)

Because travel slows down in September/October, tickets can be quite inexpensive, especially if you are flexible on days and times you travel. I suggest booking your flight on a Tuesday or Wednesday, as these days generally offer the lowest prices. Alaska Airlines even has a Mobile Deals Club: text ALASKA to 44227 to receive text alerts on deals and offers!

Whatever your destination, consider taking to the skies this fall (the scenery is even more spectacular at 10,000 feet!) I suggest flying Alaska Airlines due to the amazing service but I am also a little biased ;). And if you’re really lucky, you may just have my sweet little sister Mollie on board. If you do, give her a hug from me!
