Hawaiian Air New Bulk Pricing $64 Each Way

Hawaiian Air New Bulk Pricing $64 Each Way

The new inter-island pricing we discussed last week was announced today by Hawaiian Airlines. It gives you an opportunity to roll back prices $10 or more per segment when you buy four round-trips. That’s a 14% savings according to Hawaiian. In exchange for that, you’ll be subjected to a number of rules, some of which may be onerous.

Here’s how it works:

Each of the Neighbor Island Travel Plans is valid for one year.

Tickets can only be used by the Hawaiian Miles member who purchases the plan.

Once reservations are made, a minimum $35 change fee applies.

The more expensive plans do not decrease the cost but instead remove some or all of the rule limitations.

My take on it:

There isn’t a plan here that will work well for most Hawaii vacation visitors. Exceptions include visitors who come here multiple times each year or those with extensive island hopping plans. I would have liked to have seen something more to encourage multi-island vacations. That may have to wait for later, or for still desperately needed competition.
