if you could do a thursday - monday type trip, you might be able to use a $100 off coupon available if you have a CO Chase Mastercard. i'm not sure if you can use it for HNL, but possibly. the widely-available coupon is only worth $25 (i believe) for flights out of CLE, EWR, and IAH.

I also got it for DTW outbound, though it is slightly higher at $515US.

Not high enough to get 100% EQMs from NWA.

That particular coupon is valid only for V class or higher fares. Good thought though

I've heard the $25 off coupon mentioned but this is the first time I have heard $100. Where do you find that please? Thanks.

How far out does this fare go to? Looking in early Dec and not finding anything out beyond Oct.
