JetBlue: New Long Beach-Anchorage flights for $139 each way

JetBlue Airways will start seasonal service from Long Beach to Anchorage on May 23, with fares as low as $139 each way if you book by Thursday.

The deal: The airline's daily nonstop service runs until Sept. 5. The fare of $139 plus tax each way requires a 14-day advance purchase and is available for flights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

When: The offer is good for travel from May 23 through June 29. You must book by 8:59 PDT Thursday to get the deal.

Tested: I found the $139 one-way fare available for a June 14-21 round trip. The daily flight from Long Beach Airport (LGB) leaves at 7:35 p.m. and arrives at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) at 11:54 p.m. The return leaves Anchorage at 1:10 a.m. and arrives in Long Beach at 7:32 a.m. The total round-trip flight cost with tax and fees came to $314.

For a comparison, I checked Kayak.com and found that the lowest round-trip fares on the same dates between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Anchorage were starting at $384, including tax and fees.
