Best way to buy 3 F tickets? “Cheap” F is easy for 1 or 2 tickets. But to buy 3 tickets, it will cost much more.
Sfo-ogg - there are only 24 or 30 F seats.
Should I just buy 2 separate bookings of 1 ticket and 2 tickets?

You have not specified the air carrier, so this is simply a generalization. But, generally, all tickets in a PNR must be issued in the same fare basis. Thus, if there are only 2 "cheap" F tickets and you try to purchase 3, all 3 will price at the more expensive fare bucket.

There is rarely a reason to purchase tickets in the same PNR without status and especially flying in F. I would purchase each of the tickets separately. That way, the first 2 will be at the "cheap" F and you will pay the higher fare bucket only for the third ticket.

If you provide the air carrier, this can be confirmed.

Buy them separately and after it is ticketed call the HA res line and have them "link" the PNRs. They will put a note in each record mentioning the other one(s) just in case something happens they know you are all traveling together just by looking at one PNR. I have done this several times with HA for the same reason the OP has.

thank you. I should book soon.
May I book using same cc even though it will be separate bookings?
