newbie to using miles - question

I don't know how this works- I have 22000 sky miles with Delta, 28,000 with Virgin Atlantic, and 10,000 with Jet Blue. They all have partnerships with Hawaiian. How do I/can I combine to get Hawaiian award flight? Thanks

From where to where? You cannot combine the miles from those three programs. But starting next year, you'll be able to redeem DL Sky Miles for one-way awards.

To book awards you must use the web site/phone of the ffp you have miles with. That is Delta, Virgin Atlantic, and Jet Blue. Having small balances in many ffp's often results in miles expiry as you never get enough miles for an award. However Delta miles do not expire

Generally, you cannot combine miles from different programs or use a combination of them to book a common partner.

You need to accrue enough miles in one program according to the redeeming award table for that program on the route/airline you wish to fly.

Also please review the forum rules in particular about cross posting:
