DL - HNL-SEA-MEX/MTY - $547+ one-way - Business (Suites)

Delta is going to fly their A330-900neo from Honolulu, Hawaii (HNL) to Seattle (SEA) from March 30, 2024 to May 6, 2024. You can experience the Delta One Suite at a discount on a one-way ticket by adding a connection to Mexico on several dates.

I'm posting this mostly for people that want to experience the seat without having to buy an expensive international flight (although it's not that bad of a deal at 10.0367 cents per mile flown). The actual service while in the air will be different than an international flight, but the seat will be the same!

I'm not going to condone hidden point ticketing, but depending on how flexible your ethics are, you could go that route.

The cheapest, sub-$600 USD, tickets to MTY fall under the Delta Fare Basis - VNXN0NFS - while the slightly more expensive tickets $600 to $700 one-way fall under the Fare Basis - XNXN0NFS - and the $700+ ones fall under UNXA0NFS

The tickets to MEX fall under the Delta Fare Basis - VNXN0NFS (sub-$600 USD) and UNXF0NFS (over $700 USD)

For tickets under $700 the HNL-SEA segment books into Z and on more expensive tickets it books into I.

I'm going to try to post Google Flights links where I can, but a few of these I can find in ITA Matrix, but Google Flights re-prices, so I'll share a shortened URL that goes directly to the Delta booking page (non-affiliate and shortened because the forum turns Delta deep links into emojis).

You can find some of these on the Aeromexico site if you want to try to earn partner MQD's, but you won't find all of them.

Now on to the booking links so you can reserve your 6 hours of fun!

I've been looking at flights YUL-HNL for a while and always seeing recliners on DL. Looks like with this at least the SEA-HNL is now lie flat and in the same price range. Very good news. Thanks

Yes, unfortunately most flights are operated by narrowbodies with a recliner and some by the 767 with their unpopular business seat.

If you have a segment from SEA to/from HNL on these dates though, you'll get to enjoy this aircraft if your trip includes flights DL440 or DL693!

Hmmmm... 'unpopular' lie flat on a wide-body Boeing versus a recliner on a narrowbody Airbus? The choice seems really easy to me there. What's with the 'unpopular' thing? Have people already forgotten the UA 772 recliners and 8 across backward facing seats?

Today's youth are soooooo spoiled.

Haha!

I'll take the lie-flat seat in the 767 any day over economy or a recliner or any of United's seats where you sit directly next to somebody in business, but many people call the 767 seats coffins. These are definitely first world problems though!

Huh. Hadn't thought about that. Maybe they swapped aircraft for the extra capacity.

Thank you! I try to keep it somewhat interesting by not consistently posting deals in the same geographic area, but I also don't work at an airline or even in hospitality, so I can't control where something great may pop up next!

routing via DTW (for longer flight in lieflat) is possible as well. Via ATL either. Nice find.

Unfortunately HNL-SEA is considered domestic under Flying Blue scheme, therefore it would score 36 XP and not 54 XP

It looks like ATL is available on some days as well
which is a much easier flight to get a good sleep

Thank you!

ATL and DTW are not an option unless you want a bit of nostalgia. The plane flying to ATL and DTW is the old A330-300. I was going to post about that option today.

Nothing against the old A330. I'd take a business seat on there, but it's not a suite like the new aircraft.

SecretFlying tried to copy this yesterday, but could only find the $574 trips with a connection in Atlanta through their affiliate. Haha!

Despite the better seat to Seattle, I'd take ATL or DTW in a heartbeat over either. The longer sleeping time is absolutely the deciding factor for me on a redeye length of 5.5hrs vs 8-9. Also, the inflight meal would cut into my sleeping time less on the longer routes

Still, I can understand going for the A330neo esp if one hasn't flown those suites before!
