It looks like business class tickets to Hawaii are increasing to 55,000 miles and Canada is now the same as the continental US for award redemption.

That article is confusing as the chart they include is outbound pricing from Hawaii.

Oneworld/Partner awards to Hawaii in business/first are going up:

AA awards are going up only on the MileSAAver rates in business/first but the AAnytime is staying the same.

AAnytime awards are the same?
I could've sworn I booked one-way AAnytime to Hawaii in First for 57,500 miles each way. With Lie flat seats. Now the AAnytime is either 67.5 or 90k (level1 vs level2) AND if you want lie-flat seats it's 20k more than the chart, so it's actually 87.5k or 110k each way now.

Yowza. at 220k miles round trip it's fairly close to Delta now for lie flights (at least from northeast)

First Anytime awards were 67.5 K or 90K when I booked my flights in early 2018 for 2019.

Ah thanks. I forgot that I booked in 2017 for travel in Feb. 2018 and it was 57.5k each way for lie flats from DFW to OGG and HNL to DFW on the return (had to dig up the old emails).
Now it would be 87.5k or 110k each way (if I wanted lie flats). Ouch.

This is super disappointing. The MileSAAver Business/First awards to Hawaii were a great deal. I was planning on going next summer in First using miles and the MileSAAver awards. Now instead of 80k I have to have 110k.
