I ended up with this:

From To Flight Aircraft Class
BUD AMS KL1972 737-900 Europe Business
AMS SLC KL057 330-200 Business
SLC OGG DL694 767-300 Delta One
OGG LAX DL448 757 Delta One
LAX AMS KL604 787-9 World Business Class
AMS BUD KL1977 737-800 Europe Business

Wish I had known that WestJet is good - would have created some other options. My quick research made it look kinda lousy - I guess I erred.

Thanks so much for the original tip - this will be a fun trip. Wife loves Christmas in Hawaii.

Flexible routings on oneworld too. I booked in January, 8 segments, AA(3), AY(2) & BA(2). The flights to/from HNL are AA Prime, the rest BA prime or codeshares. Flying A321T JFK-LAX & AA 772 HNL-DFW. All for $1762. Crazy!

@vji: The fare rules do not specify an expiration date.

Plus similar fares have been available before, e.g.
Star/OW : BUD - HNL $2,187 RT Business
OneWorld & *A, BUD-HAWAII, EUR 1'400

Granted, both of those were at the height of the pandemic, but still. BUD-US fares generally have been very low pretty consistently for at least the last couple of years.

the key, of course, is getting the ticket to originate in BUD; ex-ARN fares have also historically been good

my best deals (pre-COVID) are BUD - SNA for $1,300 in J and BUD - JFK for $2,200 in F, haven't had a reason to take advantage of the fares to HNL!

What do you mean by getting the ticket to originate in BUD? As opposed to what?

Also 2200 for JFK in F would be fantastic, I hope they bring that back. What airline / routing was that? I might have to set a google flights alert for that.

You need to fly BUD - USA - BUD, not USA - BUD - USA

If BUD - USA - BUD and you purchase over 180 days out, $1,500 for J and $2,800 for F on OW is everywhere. Very few people can actually take advantage of that price, though.

Not everybody lives in the USA! I think I read somewhere (although prepared to be corrected) that the British Airways forum is the busiest on FT.

That's right, it is! If you live in Europe, the positioning flights are much easier

I am wondering about taking advantage of this fare. I have options to fly on AS 737 between LAX and OGG instead of AA 321neo on the same route. The only thing is that AA will make me save a night in Hawaii. Is AA's 321neo first class seat so bad compared to AS ? I guess the service level will be similar on both airlines, or is AS substantially better ?
