Need advice SFO-HNL award

Need advice I have no status on AA, though I'm a UAL 1K. I want to book to go to SFO-LIH Hawaii March 31, return April 7th. No flexibility around dates. I have plenty of miles on UA and enough on AA, but want to be as efficient as possible.

Any advice? Willing to pony up the 60k miles if absolutely needed to go biz class, but I'm very reluctant to take a "standard" award.

Have you checked HA flights? You can mix & match AA & HA flights on Hawaiian award tickets.

And from what I've read, the AA Hawaiian 767's are pretty shabby first class accomodations(only coach and first on these planes). I don't know about HA's first class.

And maybe check for TWA flights? By then you should be able to use your AA miles for TWA flights.
