Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
The great fares to Hawaii are continuing! We’re seeing flights from across the US to all four destinations in Hawaii for under $414 round-trip thanks to airlines engaging in a fare war. American Airlines is continuing to attack Delta in Atlanta, Detroit and Minneapolis and United in Houston. United is attacking American in Dallas. Meanwhile, Hawaiian is offering great nonstop fares from San Diego, New York's JFK and it's brand new Long Beach route.
The easiest way to find these bargains is to search for dates via Google Flights, then book on Orbitz, Expedia or directly with the airline itself.
