In a normal deal year, we probably would not post this. This has been a strange year of deals to Hawaii — there hasn’t been a lot of them.
Alaska and Hawaiian are going at it with their nonstop service between San Jose / Oakland and Honolulu. This deal does not meet our 6 cents per mile criterion. Availability is better on Hawaiian.

- Sample from San Jose on Alaska
- January 14th – 20th, 2015
