If you don’t have plans for a trip to Hawaii you might wonder why you’d care about Hawaiian Airlines miles. But you may be surprised at where they can be used!
Not only do they offer intra-Hawaiian islands flights and flights to the US mainland but they also fly to other South Pacific islands (Pago Pago, Samoa, Papeete, Tahiti), to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China. Intra Hawaiian island flights start at only 7500 miles in economy and only 20,000 miles to the US Mainland. I’ve read that Hawaiian has some of the nicest coach seats available from the mainland to the islands with seatback entertainment for everyone as well as an actual meal. That can be hard to find on mainline US carriers!
Their international destinations start at 27,500 miles between Hawaii and the other South Pacific islands and 40,000 miles between Hawaii and Asia or Australia/New Zealand. First class seats, while not lie-flat start at 15,000 miles intra-island, 40,000 miles to the US Mainland, 47,500 to other South Pacific islands and 65,000 to other regions.
But what if the object is to just get to Hawaii and Hawaiian Airlines doesn’t fly to your city? The good news is they have a number of partners so you can redeem flights on those airlines. Their partner airlines are: All Nippon Airways, American Airlines, China Airlines, Korean Air, JetBlue, Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic and select Virgin Australia flights. That opens up a world of possibilities to get to Hawaii.
And now Hawaiian Airlines is giving away 140,000 miles on their Facebook page. To enter, you must first like their Facebook page and then fill in your name and email address. Pretty simple! Good luck – though I hope I win!
