Wednesday, May 28th update: It appears that all the lower fares are possibly all gone, but it’s still worth looking into as Kayak.com is reporting some lower fares.
Tuesday, May 27th afternoon update: These fare seem to be fluctuating erratically. I just checked Charlotte to Honolulu for myself and the best Continental fares were gone, then 10 minutes later, I rechecked and they were back. The good news is that American Airlines fares were $588, which is still a very, very good fare from the East Coast to Hawaii. I’ll keep my eye on this situation for you.
United Airlines and Continental have dropped fares to Hawaii with prices as low as $297 roundtrip. So far, these great airfares only apply from these hubs:
- Newark (United)
- Houston (United)
- Charlotte (Continental)
- Philadelphia (Continental)
- Pittsburgh (Continental)
You must fly on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays and stay for three nights minimum. Per the Frugal Travel Guy, the travel dates that apply are:
Jan 9 to Feb 15
April 24 to June 7
August 21 to Nov 10
December 5 to Dec 14
Continental is only offering the best airfares into Honolulu (HNL), while United is offering the good deals to both Honolulu and Kauai (LIH).
Use Kayak.com to help you find the best airfare. With the fantastic hotel deals in Hawaii combined with these excellent airfares, this is an amazing time to go visit Hawaii.
A big mahalo to the Frugal Travel Guy for the heads up!
