Where to look for Hawaii to Singapore or New Zealand
I am thinking about flying from Hawaii to New Zealand or Singapore, or both, in November. What out of the box sites should I use to search for business class tickets with miles? (I am used to looking for tickets to Europe so don’t know the tricks for Asia/S Pacific.)
I have a lot of UR, Delta and United, and also have Cap One, American, Avios and Hawaiian miles.
Travel Codex has a great award calculator, which can give you an idea of how much it’ll cost: [URL]https://www.travelcodex.com/award-maximizer/[/URL]
A handful of programs charge under 65k one way for Hawaii to Singapore – AA on Partners, LifeMiles, United and Delta.
For Hawaii to AKL, the best programs seem to be American or United.
In both cases, Alaska miles are a good option, if youre able to get some.
