crazy flight scenarios:

MSY to PDX: $124
PDX to HNL to PDX vacation package: $913
PDX to PSC: $115
PSC to MSY: $118

total cost: $1270

--

MSY to PSC return to MSY: $285
PSC to HNL to PSC vacation package: $989

total cost: $1274

--

So it's currently $4 cheaper for me to have three one-hop flights with my hawaii trip for a total of five "flights" than it is for me to have one round trip with my hawaii trip which is a total of four "flights".

additionally, it looks like if i choose to book my flight, hotel, and car rental separately for my hawaii trip, i only spend an additional $50 versus ordering it as a package. Granted, i may not get as good of a hotel, but what that allows me to do is to fly into hawaii from one place and then leave hawaii to go somewhere else, which a vacation package can't do.

this is all very very silly.

it's a convenience thing...when i used to have to travel for Premier, the guy who booked my flights would get me them with 3 or more stops along the way just to save some money. Once i was able to book my own flights, it was only non-stop flights. The extra $20 or so was definitely worth the hassle of having to switch planes or stop numerous times.

Non-stop is also usually a shorter journey which also makes it more expensive.

multihop flights i understand being cheaper. But i'm not used to the idea of booking separate one way flights being cheaper than getting a round trip ticket.

but yeah, i guess that makes sense, kinda.
