Is there any reason not to fly to flagstaff directly? Anything special Phx? It looks like Grand Canyon and Sedona are closer to flagstaff. I'm just wondering if I'll be missing something if I do that.

Grand Canyon and Sedona are both closer to Flagstaff than Phoenix.  We only flew into Phoenix because the flight times worked out and we were able to get direct flights.  Also, not sure if this is important, but there are kosher stores and restaurants in Phoenix and Scottsdale, whereas in Flagstaff there are none.  There is Chabad in Flagstaff but I personally would not rely on them.

If you're flying on miles PHX is way easier than these small airports. If you're booking with cash and you don't need to buy food it makes much more sense to fly to one of those you mentioned.

I know the chabad shliach in flagstaff personally very nice guy. Not much he really can do for you in regards to food. I believe he drives to Phoenix himself for food.
