Plenty Of Availability to Hawaii in Delta Business / First Class at Middle Level

We’ve shared our success finding Business/First class tickets to Hawaii using SkyMiles. Although we found the award with Delta’s partner, Alaska Airlines, the option to use SkyMiles at the low award level (75,000 SkyMiles) for Business/First Class to Hawaii exists. Later in the week we found our attempts to add mainland U.S. segments to the ticket would “break” the award ticket and cause the award price to go “UP” into stratospheric levels.

We always try to look on bright side here at Points, Miles & Martinis, even if to our detriment. So we did a comprehensive availability search to Hawaii using Delta SkyMiles. We searched for two Business/First Class awards from the U.S. to Hawaii from just about every Delta gateway. It took a bit of time to compile the results and they were interesting to say the least.

Plenty of Availability on the Los Angeles to Honolulu Route

Just to ensure this was not a fluke, we also did an comprehensive year long calendar availability search on the following routes:

  • SFO>HNL
  • SEA>HNL
  • SLC>HNL
  • LAX>OGG
  • LAX>KOA

It’s possible that we may have missed a route, but the pictures above say it all. We also looked at US Airways, Alaska, Hawaiian, United, and American Airlines. All of the other airlines had low level availability scattered throughout the year.

Bottom Line

What we learned, Business/First Class availability to Hawaii is plentiful using SkyMiles, it will just cost you 135,000 SkyMiles at the Medium level instead of the low level 75,000 SkyMile requirement.

Medium award level availability for two Business/First Class seats from the mainland U.S. to Hawaii can be found literally every day of the year with SkyMiles.

  1. Key takeaway: Delta miles are worth less than other miles

    (says the Delta Diamond with too many miles who still refuses to redeem at anything other than low)

  2. “Any other key take-aways you’ve found from this illustration?”
    Don’t collect SkyMiles if you want to go to Hawaii. The only positive shown here IMO is medium availability over Xmas/Easter which is the only time DL beats UA/AA in price to Hawaii.

  3. Sure. If you spend nearly double miles, you can go to Hawaii. That’s generally true on other US airlines as well (who do offer space at the ‘saver’ or ‘low’ level).

    The frightening thing is that 135,000 miles ISN’T THE HIGHEST MILEAGE PRICE that Delta has…
