Reward travel to Hawaii

I am looking at using miles to fly 3 people from DTW to HNL next August, but it looks like NW only releases 2 FC seats for reward travel per flight. Is it possible they release more seats closer to the departure date? What are my chances if I take the 2 FC and 1 coach ticket, that I can upgrade the coach ticket before we leave?

Did you check to see if there were other flights available with 3 open seats, ie flights with connections in SEA or SFO?

Afraid not. I think the reward travel page checks all flights - I get listings going through SEA and LAX when I look for 2 seats...

It's REAL tough getting 3 FREE seats to Hawaii in ANY class but 3 FC seats IS one of the ultimate challenges it seems!

I agree Doc. When I booked my two FC award seats MSP - HNL, the CS rep was telling me what was available and seats were being booked by other agents while we were talking. This was 11 and 1/2 months before the travel dates.
