I'm trying to look for a flight to Ketchikan and can't find one that would take me less than 10 hours or some such stupid bs. I used to be able to fly up in 4 hours. WTF?

Whenever, soon. Fire season is almost over here. I'm thinking about going towards the end of this month and I need to be back before Christmas.

Do you want to fly first class or coach & how long do you want to be gone?

Doesn't matter, it's a short flight between Sea-Tac and Ketchikan. We used to be able to fly straight from PDX.

I'll probably leave sometime before the end of the month and be back here sometime in Dec.

Ok, a flight leaving on 9/18 from PDX to KTN via Seattle runs about $367. If you left on 9/25 the airfare would be $266. For return flights Dec 1st-18th are $257. They get wild for pricing the week of Christmas, but settle back down to $257 for the rest of the month. You're looking at paying between $650-$700 RT. The average length of the flights & layovers is about 4.5 hours.

Yeah. I need to fly out of PDX instead of Eugene, that would cut the time a bit.

Its not going to matter very much. You'll still have to enjoy Seattle's wonderful airport. Strange that the flight isn't nonstop...
Can't they send the corporate jet down for you?
