Can anyone help in my quest to visit hawaii next year. For airlines, does Hawaii ever go on sale? When should I look for the sale? When is the low season? Would it be cheaper to use frequent flier miles to get to the west coast, then purchase a seat from LAX or SFO to the islands? I don't have enough to reach HNL without a co-payment (AA). Does Hawaiian Airlines still use their DC-10s to the states? What about island hopping once you get there? Does Hawaiian still offer that pass that entitles you to 4 or 6 one way inter-island flights? Thanks in advance.

I just flew on a 767 on Hawaiian Airlines from SFO to HNL and then from OGG to SEA. Both 767's were originally with LTU German Charter carrier. All the signs in the restrooms were in German first, then in English. On the flying map display, the cities and information were given in German first, then in English, which was rather funny, since we were flying to Hawaii.

I loved flying on HA!! So much better than AA, UA, DL, NW and CO to Hawaii. HA presented some island videos that told some history and fun things to do on the islands, besides just showing a movie, which helped to pass the time away quicker (5 hour flight).

They no longer have the inter-island pass, I asked myself. Flying on the B-717 was great! I'll have pictures to upload in just a few days.

Since it sounds like your coming from the east coast, I would fly into Oakland spend the night and then take Aloha from Oak, or Orange Co to Hawaii. Their 737-700's are very nice only holds around 112 passengers so its a breeze getting on and off the plane. I took them with a AAA discount in first class for 425 one way from Oak to Maui. Service was outstanding I got into Maui around 12pm well rested and ready to go. I used to fly from east coast and connect on AA thru Stl to Ogg or thru Lax but such a long flight. Slow season is Sep 15th thru Nov 15th, And after spring break but before schools get out, lots of family's go there. I would recommend staying in Maui I love it there and go once a year in Feb....

Thanks everyone. My error on the mainland phrase, I'm used to asking questions about trans-atlantic flights. Yes I'm coming from the east coast (CLT). Do you advise stopping for one night on the way to HNL? This way the trip wouldn't be 10+ hours from CLT.

Or fly Continental and get a brand new 762 on the IAH-HNL-IAH legs.

Huh? What 762?! I have seen it once depart from HNL, but usually I see the 764. When does the 762 arrive/depart?

Thanks for the compliments on HA JayDavis! It's always nice to hear when we do something right.

B764, I think most of your questions have been answered, although I can tell you the DC-10 is still used on most of the LAX-HNL flights, and also the ONT-HNL, PDX-HNL, and starting later this month, some of the SFO-HNL flights too. The 763 is used on all the Maui trips (from LAX, SFO, and SEA), the SMF-HNL, some of the SFO-HNL, and SAN-HNL also. As we get more planes (providing Boeing doesn't strike) they'll be replacing more and more of the DC-10's. Unless you really like LOOOOOONGGGG flights, I'd suggest going to LAX, and transferring to one of our flights. It doesn't have to be overnight, but the break will make the trip a little less stressful. And the layover in LA will give you a chance to stretch your legs, then enjoy our service to the islands.

To JayDavis - when did you fly OGG-SEA? I've flown that flight several times in the last few months, and I might have been your FO.  Smile


One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
