Alaska Air seems to be really taking advantage of the flight restrictions and cut backs. A change in airfare from March 15 to April 5 for a return from Loreto to SF cost me $300, almost the cost of the original ticket. In the last 24 hours the flights from LTO – LAX- SFO have gone from “almost empty” to “completely booked.” Hmmmm…Either something is going on that we don’t know about or someone is playing with the flight schedules, or there are a lot of people that decided to exit LTO to LAX in the last 24 hours.
Alaska charges $100.00 for a change fee plus any ” change in air fare” to the flight, which seems to always occur. My net was an additional $257 for a $399 ticket.
