Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we do not recommend booking travel with departures between May and June. This fare has departures later in the year.
United has round-trip flights from Chicago (ORD) to Fairbanks (FAI) for $295, NONSTOP. Flights August to September. No Weekends. Departures on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Extended Weekends available.
Priceline has “Express Deals” on some of these dates for $267. With “Express Deals” the airline and exact flight are hidden until after purchase and those purchases are final. There is no 24-hour free cancellation for “Express Deals”. The flight is guaranteed to be on a major airline. Be sure to select the deal with 0 to 1 stops and a layover less than 3-hours.
United is waiving change fees, but their “Basic Economy” fares do not include a free carry-on bag. Only a personal item (like a small laptop bag) is free. Seats are randomly assigned for free prior to boarding. If you have the United MileagePlus credit-card, use the “free checked bag” perk.
The personal item size on United flights is smaller (9-in/10-in/17-in) than Frontier or Spirit (8-in/14-in/18-in).

I was able to pull this up on Priceline. Screenshot taken when this post was initially created. See timestamps at the top of this post.
Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
