I recently looked into "what if I flew to Hawaii?". Maybe I should fly HA? If so, it looks like flights within Hawaii can be credited to many US programs and Hawaii to Asia and the South Pacific can be credited to AA, but if you fly between the mainland and Hawaii, you are limited to HA's program and B6 in some cases.

Seems to be you can earn miles on Korean Air, Virgin Atlantic, and Virgin Australia for Hawaiian flights but many Americans don't regularly fly those airlines or credit flights to those airlines.

I wonder if flying HA is worth the experience? I heard the meal is free but not that good.

I mean, it's a coach airplane food, do you expect it to be good? It's still a step up from most of the others which give you nada from the west coast in coach.

As for whether to fly HA vs. the competition, that mainly depends on where you're flying out of, what kind of fares you can find and who you have elite status with.

Do "A" first class fares earn 150% redeemable HawaiianMiles for HA flights?

I am flying HNL - PPG in business class and back later this summer (separate in and outbound PNRs to/from HNL on UA) and just joined the Hawaiian FFlyer program. However after reading this thread it seems I can credit the flights to American. Will having the new Hawaiian fflyer # preclude me from crediting to AA? I'd rather credit to AA as I only go to AmSam once, sometimes twice, a year on business so nothing much to do with HAL miles. Thanks

If you credit to AA, you will earn 150% award miles, but no elite qualifying miles. You can't do it through HA's website, you need to call them and have them remove your HawaiianMiles number from the reservation and add your AAdvantage number.

How, not where?

Excuse the even more basic question, but how do you credit a Hawaiian Airlines flight to another airline? I can't even find the option to do it online. Is it even possible for me to do it with an itinerary operated only by Hawaiian?

Edit: The answer was right above (and now below) me...no way to do it online only over the phone or at the gate.

As noted above, there is no way to add your other airline frequent flyer number on a Hawaiian reservation online. You'll have to call to add it, or ask a gate agent at the airport.

No.

Only flights within Hawaii, between Hawaii and Asia, and between Hawaii and the South Pacific, are eligible for earning American AAdvantage miles.
