It’s late notice, but today is the last day of Alaska’s fare sale from Los Angeles to Costa Rica. I mentioned a few weeks back that they would be beginning service to both Liberia and San Jose in Costa Rica from Los Angeles, operating on alternate days. Service begins on October 31, and if you book your tickets today you can get fares as low as $249 one-way.

|October 31||San Jose to Los Angeles||5:35 PM||10:05 PM||M/W/F/Sa|

|November 1||Liberia to Los Angeles||5:25 PM||9;35 PM||Tu/Th/Sa/Su|
Special thanks to Charlie for emailing me a reminder while I was on vacation. In addition, Charlie pointed out that the Los Angeles-Costa Rica flights are available to earn double award miles for travel through December 12, 2015. Even if you don’t buy your ticket today, you can register for the offer any time between now and December 12 (before your flight) to qualify for double miles. See the offer page for full terms and conditions.
Several other routes are also offering double award miles, though sadly none of these offers include double elite-qualifying miles. 🙁
