Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
Delta currently has some very good fares to Hawaii. The best deals are from Portland (PDX) and Seattle on the West Coast, from $378-395 round-trip, but $523 (Philadelphia) to $599 (Boston) is a great deal from the East Coast, too. You can also find flights for a bit more from a few other cities, including San Diego and Salt Lake City, and you can fly to other destinations in Hawaii from the East Coast if you’re willing to spend more or add an additional stop in each direction.
