Flat bed business class to Hawaii from under $1100 round trip from Canada

The hits keep on coming with Hawaii airfares today. In response to our earlier post (See: Hawaii fare war: East coast from $350!, West from ~$300), reader Abe commented on a nice round trip United Business Class fare out of Ottawa, and by playing with Google Flights I came across others out of Montreal and Toronto. Some of these are so good that they might warrant a positioning flight one-way to Canada if you can travel with a…

(EXPIRED) Hawaii fare war: East Coast from $350! West from ~$300 round trip

This morning’s Thrifty Traveler Premium email alert brought to our attention a great fare war going on flights to Hawaii from many cities around the US — on United, American, and Delta (with deals varying by city). Use Google flights to search for dates, and don’t forget to check the airport codes for multiple islands to find all the best deals (HNL, KOA, ITO, OGG, LIH). I’ve used example dates below, but there are many months available for most cities (mostly March…

Want to fly first class to Hawaii?

Hawaii is one of my favorite destinations in the world.  Pictured above is a view from a path near the Andaz Maui.  And below is a view from a hike in Koke State Park at the end of an incredible drive along Waimea Canyon in Kauai.  How can you not love this stuff? One aspect that’s hard to love (especially for those of us who don’t live on the west coast) is the long journey…

[Expired] Fare war: hub cities to Hawaii for $374 / 25K points

This morning, we posted an airfare sale on American Airlines from Delta hubs to Hawaii for $374 round trip (or about 25,000 Ultimate Rewards points if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve). In that post, I mentioned to be on the lookout for Delta to respond — and they have. Flights are now on sale for the same $374 round trip from Philadelphia, Miami, Dallas, and Phoenix) on Delta. If you’re looking to get away to paradise, these are stellar prices form…

[Expired] Hawaii from Atlanta/Minneapolis for $374 or 25K round trip

American Airlines has flights to Honolulu, Hawaii on sale from just $374 round trip out of Atlanta, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, and Las Vegas. That looks like an attack on Delta hubs — be on the lookout for a potential fare war if Delta begins attacking American hubs. At the moment, the $374 round trip price is pretty widely available from January through March. I can’t find flights quite that cheap through the Chase travel portal, but…

Southwest to Hawaii: Get your Companion Passes ready

Southwest announced late last night that they are finally starting service to Hawaii in 2018. Companion Pass holders rejoice — two-for-one tickets to Hawaii will be huge for those with the points, and the extra competition could mean better prices for everyone. We don’t know from which airports they will service Hawaii, but we can surmise from the promotion for an easy Companion Pass for California residents that they intend to fly from California.   Get a Companion…

11.5K to Hawaii: Now use Singapore miles to fly on Alaska

Singapore Airlines and Alaska Airlines recently announced a partnership. Today, Singapore released its award chart for travel on Alaska, and it results in the new cheapest awards to Hawaii from the middle of the country westward, with travel as low as 11,500 miles one-way (which should include flights from places like Denver, Pheonix, Boise, Bozeman, Calgary, and more). While British Airways has long been a good redemption for Alaska flights departing the west coast at 12.5K one-way, this…
