Note that Alaska Airlines is also a BA partner even though AS award space doesn't show up on BA.com (but does showup on aa.com). With that in mind, you could also consider connecting in SAN or the...

I believe AS interlines with Mokulele, so assuming you can check the luggage straight through I think 95 minutes is plenty of time. Note that you can't catch the wiki wiki from the commuter terminal...

The miles that you would have earned are a real part of total of what the ticket cost. So when paying cash the cost is the ticket price in $ minus the value of the miles earned, while when redeeming...

That's great if you don't have trouble getting strong value from HA miles. But from personal experience and from posts of many others on FT I'd say you're one of the lucky ones.

Sorry toolate, but as you're finding out HA miles are at or near the bottom in terms of value. And they've been steadily getting less valuable for several years. I tend to only use the miles these...

Agreed. Even having a fantastic experience personally, the price seemed crazy.



That's a shame, and the service letdowns must have been especially magnified on an 8 night stay. I'm interested...

Indeed, OGG can be a pain. I was on the 2:10 OGG-HNL flight yesterday and arriving at security 50 minutes prior to departure was just barely enough time as I got to the gate at 2:05 PM.

I generally aim to arrive 1 hour before any inter-island flight. Have cut it as close as 15 minutes prior for a 5AM flight that I nearly slept through, but that's not my recommendation.

Thanks for the trip report! We stayed at that Granada property in 2013 and loved the feel of the interior courtyard from the converted convent. Need to get back and explore more of the region.

I haven't ever done a one-way with KE miles but it looks like they do. They should have the same access to OGG-LIH nonstops as AA and UA. And yes, that route does show up on aa.com.
