Hawaiian Airlines Series: Maximizing HawaiianMiles Airline Partner Awards

Hawaiian airline partnersThis is the fourth post of our series on using Hawaiian Airlines for those folks who might have just signed up for the new . So far we have looked at award availability on Hawaiian’s Mainland routes, the new card’s share miles benefit, and whether it’s worth converting HawaiianMiles to Hilton HHonors points. In this post we discuss how to maximize Hawaiian’s airline partners.

Although, as previous posts in the series showed, Hawaiian offers pretty decent award availability between the Mainland US and Honolulu on its own flights, there are some examples where using HawaiianMiles on the program’s airline partners can be a good idea.Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 1.56.34 PM ons like Korean Air and ANA to help you get around other parts of the world. Here’s the rundown of airline partners and when you might want to use HawaiianMiles on them.

Here is the list of Hawaiian’s :

ANA – All Nippon Airways
China Airlines
Korean Air
Virgin America
Virgin Atlantic
Virgin Australia

Like ANA’s own award chart, the one Hawaiian uses for the airline is distance-based, with two bands for within Japan and then another for flights specifically between Tokyo Haneda and Hawaii:

Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 2.58.14 PMSo as you can see, for flights within Japan under 600 miles you’ll be paying 18, 000 miles roundtrip, and for those over 600 miles, it’s 22, 500 miles roundtrip – these are only economy redemptions, no first/business awards are available.

For flights to/from Tokyo to Honolulu, it’s 90, 000 miles in coach or 155, 000 miles in business class. All flights must be operated as ANA-Hawaiian codeshares, not on any of ANA’s partners.

To compare, ANA’s own award chart lists intra-Japan awards starting at 10, 000 miles roundtrip in low season up to 15, 000 in high season.

Then that flight to Honolulu would cost 35, 000-45, 000 depending on season in economy, or 60, 000 in business class and 90, 000 in first class. So it takes a lot more Hawaiian miles to fly ANA to/from Honolulu. That said, the taxes and fees on Hawaiian-issued tickets are much less than those using ANA miles since Hawaiian doesn’t charge the same fuel surcharges that ANA will – which are around the $700 range even on economy tickets!

ANA intra-Japan tickets are generally $100-$200 in taxes and fees when booked through ANA, but Hawaiian’s are well under $100, so the tradeoff here is between using more miles or saving potentially hundreds of dollars.

When I spoke to Continental Airlines

by NotLostYet

They said that the compartments where animals are freighted *are* heated/cooled/pressurized. They only stipulate that dogs with breathing issues (pugs and EBDs) cannot fly when the outside temp is over like 85 degrees.
OP, you might want to call the airline's service number and talk to them. They will also have all the information about paperwork that you need. It would be worth finding out if Hawaii allows animals to be brought in as "accompanied baggage" meaning that you can take them in the cabin with you. I'm going to the UK and they don't allow that at all, so I have to pay to freight my kitties

Traveling in Europe (Austria-->Greece, the Alps)?

I am going to be studying abroad in Salzburg, Austria for the month of June. I will be allowed a few "free days." The longest time I have free is 5 days, and I have the afternoon after classes end (about 5?) to start my trip.
I would love to go to Greece, but I don't know if I will have enough time to get there and enjoy my time there. How long would it take to get there? and will I have time to relax and hit the beaches?
I would also like to climb the Alps, but is it safe to be an unfamiliar climber on the Alps? I have climbing experience, but I'm not sure how much the…

You could take one of those discount flights and be there by dark. then you spend your time.

If you are in Salzburg, and you want to hike the alps, you probably don't have to hike far from your door. Salzburg is pretty much IN the alps. Really beautiful country. And not that far from Switzerland, if you want to cross the border for a weekend, that should be easy to do.

What you really need to do is set yourself up a longer program of study, like a semester or even a year, so you can REALLY get a feel for your town and the semester,…

Specific places in France?

I want to go to some hidden treasures in France that are not too touristy. Some nice museums, gardens, interesting historical places, etc. If France has the biggest of something, I want to see it (like the biggest, i don't know, tree or icecream bowl)

Be creative please!

Uzes is a town in the languedoc-roussilon (probably spelled that wrong)
it's not too touristy and a beautiful historic town, i lived there for the summer!

if you're going to be in southern france, try montpelier for the beaches and lyon (not really southern) for the food!
