    Fares to ANC have been ridiculously low for over a month now out of several cities. I'm headed there myself in September but will be staying a few days.

    They've been $400 or less ex-BOS ever since February. I have a $350 RT booked from all the way back in March!

    I'd clarify that by stating it hasn't been consistently offered that entire period. It's fluxutated a bit as I've looked into fares out of BOS to ANC several times this year and seen it anywhere from $280 up to $650. It's not just BOS though, there are tons of cities offering good fares on multiple carriers up to ANC at the moment. Get it while it's good folks!

    Indeed, I have 7 booked on AA and even went for 2 on UA as well! I was smart enough to make the first one an actual visit though :). It's a good idea, in case you get stuck there on a later MR! Found this out the hard way, but at least I had actually visited the place before when I got stuck there due to a quick turn getting blown up by AAwful computer systems :D.
