So I’ve been perusing flights and prices for a tentative visit back to the Northwest over Christmas Break (not that I even have a clue whether I will be able to afford such a thing, but heck, I’ve got dissertation reading to evade, time to waste, responsibilities to shirk!).
One thing I’ve been looking at is whether it’s less expensive to fly from Indy to Seattle on one round trip ticket, and then do the Seattle to Spokane on another, or whether one round trip ticket is the way to go. Of course, if I choose the former, then I’d have to check in luggage in Seattle a second time, though if that be the case, I might just suffer through with just a carry on and ‘borrow’ needed extra ‘gel or liquid’ stuff.
Here’s one flight I saw in the “Seattle to Spokane” option:
Flight 2191 operated by Horizon Air / 2345 operated by Horizon Air / 2314 operated by Horizon Air
Seattle/Tacoma, WA (SEA)
Spokane, WA (GEG)
|5hrs 5min – 2 Stops
Change planes in Portland, OR (PDX)
at this price

Prop Service more
Such a deal I have for you! Only four hundred bucks for a five-hour flight with two plane changes! What sort of crazy talk is it to get from Seattle to Spokane in one puddle jump flight that takes but fifty minutes? Sheesh!
Truly for the one who makes inconvenience a discipline.
