    I recently received emails from both Alaska Airlines and Cathay Pacific highlighting their month of July deals that may be of interest to those of you planning travel later this year.Alaska Airlines is currently having a 3-week long sale to various destinations in Mexico. This week features the destination of Mazatlan, with fares starting as low as $169 one-way from LAX and $239 one-way from Seattle. Keep in mind that this could be a perfect use for the Bank of America credit card's companion pass, which will let you bring a companion along for an additional cost of only $119 round-trip. As an added bonus, the companion ticket is even eligible to collect both elite and redeemable miles. Fares to Mazatlan must be purchased by midnight on July 20th, for travel on Sundays / Mondays / Saturdays from September 1st through October 6th. They will be featuring a new destination in Mexico each week, so keep checking back for additional locations.If you're looking to travel even further, Cathay Pacific's deal of the month features flights to Cambodia and Vietnam starting as low as $951 round-trip from San Francisco and Los Angeles, and from $1,032 from Chicago and New York. Tickets must be purchased by midnight on July 20th for travel between September 1st and December 9th.Both of the options above are appealing to me as I'm only about halfway toward re-qualifying for Alaska Airlines MVP Gold status and have been looking for good deals. In case you missed it, last week I outlined some of my experiences year-to-date s a new MVP Gold member.
