Help with LAS-HNL

I'm trying to book first or business class LAS to HNL. I have 25k expiring TYP points, 20k SPG points, and about 80k UR points.

Cash first class seat on Hawaiian Air direct at a reasonable hour is $1k. I could use the TYP expiring points as a $330 credit, and pay cash for the rest.

Or I was wondering if there are better ways to get a first class seat transferring to frequent flier miles? One stop would be fine, especially if their first class is better than HA's.

TYP and UR points both transfer to Singapore Airlines - is that something worth exploring?

You're just looking for a one-way redemption?

If you can find "Saver" seats on UA flights at united.com, I believe that you can get a one-way in F for just 30,000 SQ KrisFlyer miles.

LAX & SFO & PHX & SAN are easy gateway cities. Try searching from there to HNL and backtracking an award or paid ticket. If you still have issues, drop me a PM.
