Using Delta Miles for Alaska to Hawaii?

Now that Alaska flies nonstop between San Diego and Maui, I thought I'd check out availability. In short, in a bunch of searches, I found one available flight over the next 11 months. Are there tricks to using Skymiles on Alaska? Is there a way to just search for non-stop flights using miles? Thanks for any help.

I've now used the Alaska Airlines miles award calendar to locate specific dates where Alaska has low mileage awards. But, I still can't get the Alaska inventory to show up using the Delta website. Any thoughts/suggestions?

On delta.com, search by date, not flexible calendar search. Search by schedule, not price. If AS has a SuperSaver award, delta.com should find it.

Is it possible to book a trip from DTW to OGG using DL for one segment and Alaska for the 2nd segment using Skymiles?

Sure - go ahead and mix carriers. The award calendar + flexible date search works only for Delta-operated flights, however. Adding Alaska segments will require searching date by date. Or call.
