Alaska Air LAX direct flight-comparison

Just for grins I checked to see if I could fly Volaris from SEA to ZIH. It’s complicated but doable. We’d have to fly Seattle Guadalajara, Mexico City, Zihuatanejo. (We’d have to book the last leg separately) A total of three flights with the first being a red eye leaving Seattle at 9:25 PM. The total per person is just over $850 for the same dates we have with Alaska.
The Alaska trip is two flights with no red eye. The price for the Alaska flights is $1050 per person. This is the price for the first class tickets we bought.

There’s really no contest from Seattle, two flights rather than three, no red eye, first class vs coach, with 28-30 inch pitch on Volaris for $200 more.
