I noticed that PHX flights from/to anywhere are crazy expensive, especially as you get closer to the dates, and in my experience they do NOT go down. If you see a price you like, take it. I'm not normally a person that books early, but with PHX I have shot myself in the foot more than once by not booking when I saw a decent price.
Well i went ahead and booked our one-way flight just now from Phoenix to Vancouver, we went with Alaska Air and got $158 each. in about a week i can look for the return flight and see what prices i can find. so far its cheaper than flying to orlando. I miss the days when i used to pay $200 RT from PHX to MCO, now its closer to $500 each!!!

thanks everyone for all the advise so far!!

How long beforehand did you book the PanPacific on Hotwire?
