Delta has “Basic Economy” round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) to Honolulu, Hawaii (HNL) for $548, with a connection. $274 each-way. Flights September to December. Origin/Destination reversible. No Christmas.

“Basic Economy” includes a free carry-on bag. Seat assignment after check-in. Boards last. Regular Economy is available for +$15 more each way.

Note: AA, Delta, and United have had this priced around $550 for the past couple of months and this deal has been on-and-off throughout the day. We’re hoping the deal stays up consistently, but that has not the case. If you don’t see the deal, and you’re using the example dates below, try again tomorrow.

  • Example Dates: (Priceline / BookingBuddy) Sep 13 – Sep 18 / Sep 20 – Sep 25 / Sep 27 – Oct 02 / Oct 18 – Oct 23 / Oct 25 – Oct 30 / Nov 07 – Nov 14 / Nov 14 – Nov 21 / Nov 29 – Dec 04 / Dec 06 – Dec 11 / Other dates: There are more dates available than the ones we list here, experiment on your own.

  • Tips: Rent a car for cheaper by using Priceline’s “Express Deals”. The rental car company will be hidden until after you purchase, but this allows those companies to undercut the published rate indirectly. You can remove low quality companies from those hidden results. The trick is to use the quality filter on their website to remove any rental car company with a review rating under 7.0 and then pick the deals that survive the filter.
  • Tips: Use Tripadvisor to create a Hotel “short list”. First, plug in your dates and destination. Then select “Sort by Traveler Ranked”. Finally, select the “Traveler Ranking” filter to show “only 4* and up”. Use this resulting “short list” of hotels to find the cheapest one with a high ranking.
  • Tips: Hotel rates for Weekend dates are usually higher than the rates for Sunday through Thursday. Tripadvisor has a color-coded date calendar, red when the average hotel price for that day is more expensive, green for less expensive. You can use this to get an overview of what dates in the month are at a discount.
  • Tips: Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability. Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on BookingBuddy, Skyscanner, and Kayak to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal.


I was able to pull this fare up on Priceline. Screenshot taken at 12:46 PM on 09/10/17.

Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
