"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."

Exactly, we don't have that option here, we don't have any options here and they know it. Alaska airlines has a Monopoly in Southeast Alaska and they know it, it's not just Ketchikan that gets the shaft either, tried flying out of Juneau lately?

Unfortunately, (for now, at least), it's just one more thing we have to put up with living here. Let's just hope we have a nice sunny summer this year to recharge our batteries and help us remember all the things we love about Ketchikan.
