Mileage redemption: Hawaiian Airlines reveals its schedule

Here’s an example of how Hawaiian Airlines rewards its frequent fliers. It isn’t usually cost effective to book Hawaiian Airlines’ own Economy Class tickets. An airline would typically charge $1,500 for a roundtrip ticket between East Asia and Hawaii. However, an airline could potentially offer a one-way flight at half price if they wanted to fill seats. You need at least 60,000 miles for an airline ticket from the U.S. to China.

To get an American Airlines MileagePlus award ticket from Beijing to New York City, you need at least 60,000 miles (100,000 kilometers). Yes, the one-way fare from Honolulu to Maui is $7,500; from Oahu to Kauai is $20,000; and from American Samoa and French Polynesia to New Zealand is $27,500. However, these fares are still acceptable. Considering the availability of Hawaiian Airlines flights between Hawaii and the continental United States during the summer months, most major airlines (AA, DL, UA) are unavailable for searches, but Hawaiian Airlines frequently offers cheap deals on tickets to destinations throughout the country. You may be able to save some cash by booking through them instead of searching directly.

Mileage redemption for partner airlines

Like American Samoa Airways (AS), Hawaiian Airline’s partners use their own mileage tables when redeeming miles. But even though Hawaiian Airlines’ partnership with its partners isn’t as cost effective as Air Serbia, they’re definitely worth trying out. With ANA, if you want to fly from New York City (JFK) to Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT), you need to pay at least $1,200 USD ($18K x 1.5). If you use United Airlines’ MileagePlus program, however, you can get up to 10% off by paying just $900 per ticket ($9K x 0.10 = 9100 miles). There are no similar discounts available for any other airline partners.

Redemption recommendation

Because Hawaiian Airlines’ redemption rate isn’t high enough, but if you use their co-branding program, you can earn more than 50,000 Hawaii Air Miles from them alone. So, you could book an awesome vacation with just these points! Here we introduce how to use 50,000+ miles for travel.

Depart from Northeast

Congrats! Hawaii Air now offers nonstop service between JFK and Honolulu. You could fly Hawaiian Airlines for just $40,000 if you were willing to travel between Honolulu (HNL) and Kona (KOA). If you’re flying between Hawaii and New York during the wintertime, then you might want to consider taking an indirect route via Honolulu instead of going directly through JFK Airport.

For the remaining 10,000 miles, you could contact customer services to get an unlimited ride pass at a price lower than $100.

Depart from California

If you’re flying from one Hawaiian island to another, there are 4 major airports in Hawaii: Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai. So if you want to visit multiple islands, you could fly for up to 50,000 miles. We planned our trip so we could fly into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

On our first trip to Hawaii we’re going to spend 2 hours driving up to Mount Kilauea (Mauna Loa) on the island of Hawai’i where we’ll be visiting the Mauna Kea Observatory, which is one of the world’s premier astronomical facilities. It is also one of the biggest astronomical observatories in the world. You could visit Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park for an amazing view of lava flows from the park’s active volcanos.
