DOT Addresses Readers Upset on Airline Cancellations and Refunds

Unpublished Hawaii Deals This Spring From $319RT

Reduced prices we have been expecting are now available for many spring dates through early June. By “unpublished Hawaii deals,” we mean these have not yet been announced by the airlines. So here’s your chance to jump on these first for best availability.

Don’t distress if your desired city pairs are not listed below. This is still one of the early spring sales and there will be more in the days ahead. Los Angeles is for example not yet included, but will be a part of sales that will still be forthcoming. Other routes just don’t have good deals yet. To see our thoughts on timing of Hawaii deals throughout 2016, read the Cheapest Time to Fly to Hawaii.

Travel dates: Varies by route with many dates available now through early June 2016 (except spring break). Others end sooner or start later. Sale fares are mostly available mid-week but some weekends are also included.

Fares and Availability: Lowest round trip fares in these markets. Not available on all dates or flights. Use an airline’s flexible date search to view fare and availability by month. Or, to check across multiple airlines try Priceline.

  1. Hi, my family and I plan on traveling to Honolulu from either Los Angeles or San Diego on 6/1 or 6/2 to 6/13 or 6/14 depending how prices come about. May I please get any suggestions of when would it be best to buy our tickets? We’ve been looking around now and we don’t know what RT prices should be. We are trying to find the best prices like everyone else out there. This is our first time. Thank you for you help and ideas 🙂

    1. Hi Herchelle,

      Suggest waiting until we are closer to the Virgin America flight roll out starting mid-May. Target price is $400 with big caveat that deals may end either on 6/9 or 6/12 – to be determined.


  2. Hi, we have never traveledc to Hawaii. We will be flying out of Kansas City. Do you know any prices and is May a good time of year to go? Thank you fot your help.

  3. Hello,

    I am going to Maui from Portland for a wedding in May with some friends and we are still holding out for better deals. We are looking at staying 5/10 – 5/15. Will there still be deals coming out or should we buy asap?

    Thank you!

  4. Hi, Love the site! I’ve been watching flight prices from Pittsburgh to Honolulu in late August (around 8/21-8/26). When you post of late summer deals, should I wait to book from PIT? Would round trip ever get into the $800s for us? Or should I book when i see a mid-$900? Want to get the room and rental car booked soon 🙂

  5. Planning to fly PHX to LIH to KOA , then Hilo back to PHX Nov. 29-Dec.15 all on Hawaiian. Please let me know if you think $800 is a good price? My first trip to the islands but it sounds high. When should I book? Thanks!

  6. Hi! Thank you for your site! I have found so much useful tips. I am taking a trip with my 2 boys (10, 13) around 5/23-5/31. We will be leaving from Denver and going to Maui. The bet deal on airfare I have found is $647 R/T- is that the best I can hope for? Also we are really interested in snorkeling (ALOT) and swimming on the beach, what are the best areas to stay for easy beach access from our hotel/apt? There are so many options out there!

    Thank you in advance! 🙂


    1. Hi Brook,

      You may see a reduction in price if you wait. Best hope is low to mid $500’s. Should improve in next month or so.

      For areas for activities and much more, we suggest the highly acclaimed guide book Maui Revealed.

  7. Just found your awesome site, perfect for helping plan my trip. I’ll be in Oahu in September, from the 7th to the 14th. Right now the round trip cost is $498 from Seattle and I’m thinking that will go lower as we get into late spring, right? Are those dates enough into the off season that the rates will change?


  8. Let me just say I am grateful for the information that you provide. I have never been to Hawaii and will be celebrating my 50th birthday in Hawaii(Honolulu) mid July. I almost want to move to California to get the best fare but unfortunately I live in the windy city (Chicago). Please tell me if there are ever any deals from Chicago or are there any tricks to making my fare cheaper. Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.

    1. Hi Ramona,

      Hawaii is a wonderful place to celebrate your birthday!

      While we have no great deals to offer, here are some thoughts. Just realize you’re travelling at one of the most expensive times of year. So about $1,050 on the nonstop (highly recommended to reduce wear and tear and very little extra cost). One slightly cheaper set of dates is 18th to 26th for $984. Flying to the west coast first is problematic in multiple ways and probably won’t end up saving much if any money.

      The only other suggestion is to get the highly acclaimed online or print version of Oahu Revealed for everything from accommodations to activities and more. If you don’t want to buy it you might find it at your local library.

      Let us know if we can be of further help. Until then, happy trip planning.


      PS. Don’t wait – research and book everything ASAP.

  9. Aloha! Please try to include Philadelphia departure deals if possible. It’s a huge market here and unfortunately, in my opinion, many don’t go to Hawaii because of the ridiculously high prices. Mahalo!

    1. Hi Karen,

      East coast is certainly challenging both for visitors and airlines. While it is a huge market, that isn’t necessarily true in relation to Hawaii visitors.

      Hawaiian Airlines has indicated a desire to serve more east coast cities so we’ll see if they are able to pull that off. Getting the NYC route to be somewhat successful was a huge amount of work.


  10. I live in Portland and have been waiting for flight deals to Maui for an April vacation, but there haven’t been any. Do you have any thoughts on why Portland isn’t getting good deals for Spring travel? There have been much lower prices previous years. Thanks!

    1. Hi Laura,

      Quite true. Just a less competitive environment. Airlines are all making money with things as they are. So without something shaking it up, there’s no reason to expect improvement unfortunately.


  11. Question,
    How come no great deals for the ninth island ?
    We use to get the cheapest deals a couple years a go and now we are the most expensive with exception of New York

    1. Hi Michael,

      High demand and lack of competition to/from Las Vegas is the issue. Not sure if/when that might change.
