Hawaiian or Virgin miles?

Hawaiian or Virgin miles?

  1. Kelli

    I booked an error fare to Australia. I will receive miles for the trip. I can choose Hawaiian miles, Virgin miles, Singapore (and several other options). I am new to all of this and I am not sure which loyalty program to choose. I have 40K Hawaiian miles and zero in the other partners. Any input on the best loyalty program to collect miles from this trip? Thanks for your help!

    Welcome [USER=1945]@Kelli[/USER] – that depends on your travel goals. Where are you hoping to fly using the miles you earn?

  3. Kelli

    Top 5 places to go to next: Japan, Cambodia, Hawaii, Thailand, and/or somewhere in Europe. After Australia, I plan on thinking of the next place that our family wants to go to and when to book the travel. Since I don’t have a clear plan yet, I want some flexibility with the miles.

    Hi [USER=1945]@Kelli[/USER], and welcome!

    Most importantly: what’s the fare code on the ticket you booked?

    Hi Tiffany,

    I’m not sure how to find out what fare code I have. We are flying Hawaiian airlines and Virgin Australia. How do I find out what the fare code is?

    I am based out of DAL/DFW so if needed, I can start from Dallas to fly out of any other major hub. We are a family of four. We have two companion passes from Southwest and a good amount of American miles too.

    usually under the digital receipt of the ticket is the fare code

    Yep, it should say on the eTicket, and even the itinerary might say “Class H” or something.

    Different fare codes earn different amounts on each carrier, that’s why we’re asking.

    The fare codes/class for Hawaiian airlines are Z flying to Australia and K flying back to the U.S.

    Z class

    Seems to be a non earning class on partners, no idea about Hawaiian own FF program.
