AA/DL: PHX-HNL $298 ai RT

Just found this fare and was able to book it, fares are good in Feb and April 2013 and you can do a MR, I was successful in a dummy booking of a same day trun around.

I book 2 trips, one in Feb and one in April. $298 AI, lots of openings. I booked mine through AA.com, booked into Q on both trips.

Routing via DFW gets the most miles.
1 day AP.
DL fare has 3 day min stay though or Saturday night

23 Feb has Q on o/b but inbound is the problem
Keep in mind that the HNL flights often have a TPD on TPAC fares which makes it more desirable so that EXPs are only going to be stuck in Y 8 hours or so instead of 12-13

What is TPD?

For those coming from Hawaii, note that there are some promo codes for 5% off to PHX on the AA forum. I found a couple of weekend for $300. Thanks OP!

For MRs, as I'm based in the Midwest and would position to PHX, my schedule only allows a Saturday departure with a Sunday return. Thank you though. Wish I could be in Phoenix on January 3rd.

Awesome, thanks! I'll be there twice in February and April! Definitely will contact you...

Likewise if you or anyone else is coming to Hawaii. We can get a few Mai Tais at Dukes, or try some local food.

Let's PM.

Many of the DFW routings jump fares on AA.com - fare shows initially at $298 but increases to $1106 when you try to purchase.

Maybe available on one of the OTAs ??
