If you haven’t heard yet there has been a number of posts on the internet and FlyerTalk about CHEAP fares to/from Hawaii! Cheap Fares in economy from the east coast have been reported for as little as $413 round trip! The fares are so cheap and so low that they are averaging out to between 3.5-4.5 cpm depending on your routing and airline. The fares have been matched by many carriers including Hawaiian, United, Delta, and Alaska. This is Great news! No matter who you collect miles with, it allows you to dump your miles into any major carrier. Even if you need a mileage run on a carrier that is not matching this fare just think: United is partners with US, Alaska partners with Delta or American or fly Delta and put your miles into Alaska (if you don’t want Skymiles or Delta Status), and Hawaiian is matching the fare in some markets and even beating it at times! Either way these fares are WAY to good to pass up and we know fare wars don’t last forever!
Furthermore, when looking up fares, I found that these fares are not just good for months in advance for booking, but some are actually good for next day and even same week travel in select market (Primary the west coast)! It’s early fall, school has started, vacations have slowed down and the Airlines clearly want to get you to Hawaii!
Here are just a few examples that I found airfare from San Diego to both Honolulu and Maui for only ~ $305 r/t! Notice that these are for travel THIS week! Now these include no lay overs, but honestly, if you’re going to Hawaii, you might as well stay a day or two if you can!
SAN – OGG Nonstop on alask next day departure 5.8 cpm
UA SAN-OGG Notice the times of the flight are odd – but this will book and will book you in Y class from SFO-OGG! I tested it and then canceled my ticket! Flight times are messed up, but does work. Link to UA from Kayak directly to get the Y class on UA from SFO = 6889 EQM or 4.5cpm
All of these fares have been found on a number of website, including Expedia, Priceline, CheapOair, Hotwire and the airlines own websites. Book quick and fly away! This is a great way to boost yourself to a new Elite status Level with the airline for cheap or just enjoy the beach for the weekend!
