Cool AF: BUD to OGG/HNL for 1921 in Business

Very limited availability over the holiday period, a bit more available January through April '23
Not the cheapest, but not bad either for the length of travel. Be careful, as some last segments might be sold as Eco

Managed to get the below ticketed on 057 stock, in J/Z class, no eco segments
KL & DL didn't allow this pricing.

Oneworld seems to offer the same, slightly cheaper I believe, but didn't look in to it.

For those crediting to Delta/other Skyteam carriers, the Kahului -> Vancouver is non mileage earning as it's Air France marketed but operated by a non Skyteam airline (Westjet). Great find none the less for those on AF/KL.

You can force lie flats to OGG/HNL via DFW on AA both ways using multi city, but not stopovers for this price.

This would be nice if you could book it all in partner codes, rather than just some of the flights, for more LPs.

this would be nice if they dropped the vaccination requirement and let me enter the country 😂

Thanks for the heads up. Was hoping to build a second trip from LAX to Hawaii, but 1200EUR for the two stopovers needed is too steep.

It can work with one stopover, but it is still too much and messes up the fare. Unless you really want to go to Hawaii.

This would have been a great fare for AA, before they changed their FFP, but now flying doesn't matter, I re-qualify on shopping and fly *A, lol. It is great for BAEC re-qualification though.

On this fare, sure. But if you wanted to stopover e.g. twice in LAX you could use a *A Z fare instead and it'd be about 600 more, not 1200. Not a steal, but not as bad.

This applies for just one stopover too (~300 instead of 600).

What a shame that ST does not lowball their offer by 300 euros to match 1W's.

Scored this - thanks!

As people have mentioned, many of the routings include an OGG-YVR segment on WestJet, which does not have a real business class or really much of premium economy. I shopped to get around that.

I'm excited to experience lots of aircraft/cabin versions that are new to me.

We're flying from Malta, and we plan to prepend a visit to Budapest Christmas markets. I think it will be my first visit to BP.

You're welcome mate.

On the WestJet segment, while this is not 'real' business as WestJet describes it, it compares to DL's first class experience almost 1 to 1 if you ask me. I've previously flown it, and it's a similar width seat with similar meal/drink service. On AF ticket it's also in J class, which I is business, so you will get business XP if crediting to Flying Blue.

Curious to hear what you found as an alternative? 757 from DL?

You can get this down to USD$1,696 on BA/AA metal if you search.
