Wanted some input from bear hunters that flew from ANC to Kodiak for bear hunts. I know a bear hunt can either end up quite a bit shorter or longer due to success/weather/etc.
What did those who flew to Kodiak do for buying airfare to/from Kodiak? Buy round-trip or 2 x one-way tickets with best estimated return date selected. From my research, it appears as if there is no savings to buy roundtrip versus one-way--however, maybe one gives you more flexibility and/or standing with the airline if you need to change the flight back to Anchorage???
Does anybody have experience with having to change their return flight time due to hunt ending early/going long??
Was it a pain/extra cost if you needed to fly off Kodiak earlier/later and were ticketed already on a different flight?
Who knows, maybe the flights aren't very full usually and frequent enough that an option can be to book it when we come out of the hunt area to avoid any potential hassle of rebooking return flight times?? Is this doable??
Thanx for the responses.
