Q:

you say you fly over the south face i am assuming that is about 20000 feet do we need oxygen can kids do this flight?

Holly  asked on  Dec 15, 2012

A:

This particular flight actually flies along part of the south face of the mountain. Usually it doesn't go any higher than 10,000 feet, so no oxygen is required. Only our Summit Flight requires oxygen and thus has an age limit (12 years old). The South Face is available to passengers of all ages.

Q:

Are refunds/rescheduling available if weather is bad?

Tana M.  asked on  Dec 12, 2012

A:

For passengers who are staying multiple days or are local enough to come a different day, rescheduling is certainly an option. In the event that the weather is persistently non-cooperative, refunds are sought via Groupon's refund policy.

Q:

What is the maximum number of people the flight can accommodate? We have a party of 5 (one child 6 yrs old).

Tana M.  asked on  Dec 12, 2012

A:

We have three different types of aircraft, which can seat four, six, or ten passengers. If you prefer a particular plane we can certainly make note of that preference, but we can't guarantee which aircraft you'll ultimately be placed in.

Q:

Hi,....How about 1/2 off for us singles? Thank you.

Theodore T.  asked on  Dec 12, 2012

A:

Theodore, The structuring of the deal is largely based on ensuring that we can fill planes, and all of the aircraft generally accommodate an even number of passengers. That said, we had a number of people last year who were able to find someone else who was going to be in the area around the same time who could take the same flight even if they weren't traveling together. -TAT

Melissa M.  asked on  Dec 12, 2012

A:

Melissa, Unfortunately, we have to draw a firm line for the purposes of the deal, but if you call our office at 1-800-533-2219, we might be able to figure something out for you, especially so close to the original deadline. -TAT

Q:

what is and how much is fuel tax you speak of?

James A.  asked on  Dec 12, 2012

A:

James, The fuel surcharge and whether we have to charge it will depend largely on what fuel does between now and the summer. Last year, the fuel charge was 2% of the total cost of the flight. The total for last year's Groupon was around $11 for two passengers. -TAT

Q:

Does it work to purchase dealnow and later decide about landing on glacier for additional cost, plus there is reference to two routes. When/how know exactly what you are purchasing?

Karen M.  asked on  Dec 12, 2012

A:

Karen, You are definitely able to add a glacier landing when the booking is made. The landing is an additional $85 per passenger, and we personally think it is a great addition to any trip. As far as routes go, the South Face McKinley is the base tour purchased with the Groupon, however, we can easily extend that to one of the longer tours for the difference in cost between the tours. -TAT
