Hawaii via FlyingBlue
Hi all – does anyone have any experience booking Delta flights to Hawaii via FlyingBlue? My wife and I will be going on our honeymoon in February and we will be using UR points. I decided to forego Korean Air as that seems to be such a hassle, so I’m aiming for the 30k round trip tickets via FlyingBlue. Does anyone have any experience booking this way and if so, could share?
Well, it’s an easy process, but the problem is that Delta doesn’t release much saver space to Hawaii. Where will you be traveling from?
We’re flying BOS >> LIH ; OGG >> BOS
I’ll be purchasing intra-island flights via united; not concerned there.
I see pretty good availability (i.e. search delta one way flights, shown in miles, for “Lowest Fare” flights) . About half of the days in February have Lowest Fare flights so it wasn’t too concerning… unless I’m thinking about it all wrong.
I would check using Alaska. Anything that AS can see, FB should be able to book. Airlines do make additional inventory available for their own members.
[USER=2074]@Ouijis[/USER] — Keep in mind that “lowest fare” doesn’t mean the [I]actual[/I] lowest fare, just the lowest fare on the dates you’re searching.
You can search the Alaska site for Delta availability, or, and this is what I would bank on, use the American Air site for Alaska availability. You should be able to find BOS-SEA/PDX-LIH/OGG on Alaska without too much trouble, particularly in economy.
