We are due to fly Alaskan Airways HNL-SFO in July. I'm a little nervous about the proposed pilot's strike. Not getting to SFO would be inconvenient as that's where our cruise leaves from a few days later.
I'm wondering about booking an economy (refundable) fare from United as a backup - and cancelling it if not required a day or so prior. Good idea? Stupid idea?
ETA - the Alaskan flight is our preferred as its 1st class (on Qantas points) - the United has the horrible 3/43 configuration - and the prices I'm looking at US$400 pp would be economy
