I’ve written about a bunch of good deal fares to Hawaii recently and it seems that Delta has loaded a ton of really competitive fares to all of the islands they serve – including Honolulu, Lihue, Maui and Kona.

The easiest way to play around with dates is go to -> Planning Tools -> Book a flight.

Enter your home airport (note: for NYC flyers, Newark seems to bring up cheaper fares by about $100, but you have to connect more) and then select, “My dates are flexible” and select the flexible weekend search date or +/- three days.

These fares are loaded for early September through 2012. You can also use the flexible date search as well, which will load the dates by month view. I recommend booking at because they will allow you to cancel your ticket by midnight the following day (see rules on Risk Free Guarantee). So if you see something you like, book now and confirm it tomorrow. Good fares come and go, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. These may not be available when you wake up tomorrow!

San Fran to Honolulu for $228 total roundtrip

Newark to Honolulu in September- lots of weekends with low fares

Newark to Honolulu for $439 total

Newark to Lihue for $445 -> Flights -> Flexible dates

Other things to note: If you are a Delta Medallion you can get upgraded on domestic legs, but not on the legs to and from Hawaii. These fares are T class mostly, so you cannot even use miles to upgrade (you’d have to buy up to K class).

Also, the cheapest fare will be shown which often includes an added connection. If you want more direct routing, scroll down- you may be able to pay a few dollars more to fly through less cities, which will save you time and aggravation (though note; you may earn less miles)

These do earn 100% elite and regular miles, so to figure out how many miles you’d get, you can use the Great Circle Mapper tool – just use the flight distance tool and enter your cities (remember Delta gives a 500 mile minimum, so you’ll get 500 miles for flying Newark to Detroit even though its only 488 miles).

This seems to be available from a lot of cities, so play around with it for your home city and feel free to report below what you find. For more info, follow the Flyertalk thread on this fare (Thanks SFO_Flyer for posting this!)

    Another reason I like United. As a resident of HNL, I like their unlimited upgrades to to the mainland, even Chicago and Denver. Will see if that remains, as CO only has elite upgrades to the west coast, not IAH or EWR, similar to Delta.

    Done. Don’t even know that I’ll keep it but I grabbed a $500 DAY-OGG. We’ve always wanted to go to Maui. It’s 1am now so I haven’t even cleared it with my wife yet. But how could she say no? Hyatt and Marriott redemption next. Thanks, Brian…you rule! Zzzzz…

    DTW to HNL/LIH/OGG were all $650 AI on Delta. So I went to Kayak and checked and I was getting United from DTW to HNL/LIH/OGG for $440 AI. So United seems to have matched the promotion?

    Time for me to start saving up my drink coupons, and can’t wait for 5 days in Hawaii, December 1st to the 7th, DEN-HNL R/T all in 348, and I’ve got family in Hawaii so that + parking at DIA is my total cost :D…AWESOME!

  • Ashley

    Looks like American , United and Continental matched the fares with Delta at least from Miami all starting at $509.40.

  • Hunter

    Delta – IAD to HNL = $446.59. Great deal! Thanks. I’ve been looking at the tickets quite a bit today and they seem to keep fluxing up and down…and as usual, I had to search Delta’s site a number of ways to get the best rate. Ugh.

  • Heidi

    done and done. Sfo – Ogg in September! It went down another ten bucks today – so it’s 231 total. thanks TPG! Hope you are enjoying Japan!
