Post T'was not bad!

Guess I should update my experience on this deal...... I ended up working the deal to go from ICN-HNL-ICN (with the mistake fare) to ICN-HNL(layover)-SEA-HNL(layover and very bad sunburn)-ICN. It was all in "First".

I did this in July, and quite enjoyed Hawaiian. The ICN-HNL departure was a snack (kind of okay.... steak and kimch'i), and that was pretty much it until prior to landing. No menus or anything fancy. They did play a cool video of a guy playing a lulluby in a hammock to put people to sleep (does anybody know who that is? ).... Mai Tais galore though. Yes, the legroom was not great, but I enjoyed the old 767 faux-wooden galley floors!

HNL-SEA: The Hawaiian lounge at HNL was useless. Didn't see it mentioned here before, so I was surprised that there was no alcohol! Went to the United Red Carpet Club on the other side of the airport...... The dinner from HNL-SEA was exceptional (truly yummy!), but prior to flying that boarding area was a mess. HNL needs to fix that!

SEA-HNL I was surprised that there was no lounge for First Class passengers (not feeling entitled, it's just that all my other legs had lounges). I was perfectly happy going to the Alaska Airlines Board Room with my Priority Pass card.....
HNL-ICN was just a fantastic flight! The Mai Tais helped numb the sunburn (fell asleep on the beach in front of the Halé Koa) GREAT dinner, great crew, and great to be back home in Korea!

So I gotta say, not a bad deal from Hawaiian Air! I may just take them again. Yes the legroom isn't quite up to international C standard, but the food was, and the price (even error-free! ) isn't bad at all! ^

I've flown half the trip so far. Reversed the trip, so originated in the US. Liked the food, but the seats sucked. Service was nice, especially on the HNL to ICN leg.

Lounge in HNL was a joke. Can't remember a lounge anywhere with less food/drink selections.

Electronic Tavel Voucher Certs


I accepted the cancellation with some Electronic certs thrown in. However, now that I want to redeem them for intra-island flights [want to book a multi-city & class flights] and I am told that it is not possible as it is only valid for one-ways and returns!

Is this normal or anyway to go around this? I have emailed back the customer advocate [seems the tel number is now a group booking department] to have this situation solved.

Thanks for your detailed report. I've just completed the exact same trip over the Christmas holidays and my experience was exactly as you've described..

Negotiated that for two o/w F tickets.

Thanks to the OP!

Now that I am safely home, here is the rest of the story.
After about 6 weeks I hadn't heard anything on how to redeem my tickets. Sent an e-mail to customer service. The response....
thank you for your help in this situation, as per agreed upon compensation, here are two codes for roundtrip F anywhere HA flies.

Thanks to the OP! Tahiti was great!
