I wanted to respond to Kim Morton's letter from April 6 - I agree with her 100%. We live in a town that the only way out is by ferry or plane. I have a big family, and trying to buy airplane tickets costs a ton of money. Oregon - Washington - why are they getting these deals on Alaska Airlines when they have a whole lot more choices on which airline to choose - we sure don't have that option here.

I too have been watching for deals on Alaska Airlines website almost daily - and there isnt anything from Ketchikan. Where do we go from here? I mean really - who comes up with these prices and who do we voice our opinions to within that company? Something needs to happen - and soon. I even called the airlines to ask them for a deal since we wanted to buy 9 tickets - and they wouldn't budge at all. They said that there has to be a minimum of 20 people before they will give any discount. How sad!
