When to purchase Delta First to Hawaii?
I am looking at 2 tickets in Oct that include a direct flight to HNL from ATL and a connecting flight to OGG for 1900 each which seems pretty reasonable for this long of a flight and lie-flat seats for a 9 hour flight. From reviewing Google Flights this price is fairly stable. Should I just make the purchase or wait?
Thanks in advance
Welcome [USER=2754]@EdwardB[/USER] – Both Kayak and Google Flights have a price tracker feature that will make a recommendation one way or the other. I’d check that for your dates and see what it says.
If Google Flights shows it being pretty stable, and you’ve checked what MidSouthSkier suggested above, book it. Barring some crazy flight deal/potential mistake fare, I can’t see that price going down much.
And especially if you’re comfortable paying $1900, there is something to be said for the piece of mind of locking your flights in and not having to constantly check the next 6 months….
Also, a second thought. If anyone is going to have a price deal from Atlanta to Hawaii, it’s not going to be Delta who flies the only nonstop option.
Thanks! as I mentioned I checked Google Flights – I was just wondering if their were other sources of pricing information.

Exactly – this is a big trip for us and I don’t want to deal with a bunch of connections. I don’t see too many other flights with lie-flat seats either. I know it is not Delta One but seems better then the other options. I have made this flight on AA and United and neither was impressive. Thanks!

You could use the hopper app to see what it forecasts for that route. However, if you’re looking for a non-stop route with lie flat seats you’re probably not going to find any other options unfortunately.
