Alaska Airlines has an interesting deal on one particular route: $417 between San Francisco and Kansas City’s MCI airport in domestic first class. This price is good when originating in either direction, but it gets even better. On August 14 only, MCI – SFO is $357 round trip for 6+ day stays, which is about $120 more than the basic economy price offered by United (which, notably, doesn’t even include a carry-on). That’s a fantastic price for a late summer getaway to the Bay! The $417 fare is available on various days, including Friday departures, from September through next March.

As noted, this is domestic first class on Alaska, so 2 checked bags are included as well as carry-on and a meal of some sort. These are Embraer 175s, which means first class has a single seat on the left side (the “A” aisle). These fares book into fare class I, which posts 175% of flown miles on AS, so that’s a nice stack of about 5200 miles as well. I would not expect the $357 flight to last long at all, and I am not sure the $417 price will stick around either, so act fast if these flights work for you.
