There are a number of airlines that fly from Los Angeles to Vancouver. These include Air Canada, Westjet, Delta, American Airlines and United Airlines. We decided on Alaska Airlines as it was the cheapest at a cost of USD $88.28 (inclusive of taxes) for the one way trip.
This was not the first time that we have taken Alaska Airlines. We first traveled with Alaska Airlines during our Alaska Cruise Trip on our flight from Fairbanks to San Fransisco via Seattle.
After some rest at the Alaska Airlines Board Room in Terminal 6, we were ready for our Alaska Airlines flight #701 to Vancouver. Flight time was around three hours from Los Angeles. The flight departed Los Angles at 8 pm and touched down at Vancouver at 11.04 pm.
Boarding was pretty smooth and we were soon on our way for take off.
Cabin Amenities and FoodSeat Pitch for the flight was relatively ok, as with our previous experience with Alaska Airlines.
There was no complimentary food for the flight, but you could order from the menu.
A special fresh item is offered on most flights over three and a half hour, inspired by the season and quality ingredients.
Items are mainly snacks and cost around USD $6 to $8. As we were not too hungry, having eaten some food in the Alaska Board Room, we did not order any food. Some eye-shut time is more important to us at that point! :)
Complimentary beverages are served. These include sodas, juices and tea and Starbucks coffee. Beer, wine and liquor can be ordered at a cost of USD $6 to $7

After a short power nap on the aircraft, we were soon touching down at Vancouver Airport.
