This Hawaii deal won’t apply to most people, but is interesting nonetheless. It is only valid from Lihue Kauai to Edmonton Alberta Canada and does not work starting in the opposite direction. The value offered however is unlike anything we’ve seen in the past few years. Over 4,000 miles each way (as it is routed) for $269 total round trip (which includes $61 in taxes). Also interesting, the fare is valid through the end of the UAL schedule (330 days from now).
So is this airfare a mistake? Probably not. What is the reason to offer this for so much less than United’s cost to transport you? I’m not sure.
We always keep an eye out for great Hawaii airfares beginning either on the U.S. and Canada Mainland as well as in Hawaii. This odd ball fare is just that. But I’m looking forward to spending some time in the Canadian national parks this summer at the historic Jasper Park Lodge with the money I saved on airfare. We’ll cover our stay on Beat of Hawaii.

Note: If you’re a United regular, this is just the ticket to accruing the miles on the cheap.
