    I'll be sure and post any special airline deals I find here. Where in Missouri do you live? We are in Springfield.

      Thanks! I am in Florissant, MO. I couldnt find anything cheaper than $900 unless I wanted to spend 16 hours flying and making 2 stops for $677 which means that I will probably have to leave a daily earlier.

        I'm jealous! Our flights were $1200 each and that was a deal in January!

          I forgot to share the news that I got my tickets $1600 (2 people) about a month ago. You would not believe that 3 weeks after I purchases them the price went down to $1300. errrrrrrrrrr oh well......

            Airfares just seem to go up. I researched flights to Hawaii to determine what the overall cost is going to be for the DW...and in order to avoid TWO DAYS of travel with multiple stops, the best I saw leaving and getting to Hawaii same day was $1,250 per person from Toronto. And that doesn't include tax and taxes are ridiculous here on airfare. So that's another $200 almost on top of that per person. It is like $3,000 just to get there for 2 people. So frustrating!

            Sometimes we drive to Buffalo as flights are cheaper there. But not by that much in this case.

            I have seen some deals though if you fly out of Phoenix or Las Vegas...so possibly using points for a flight to one of those cities and then booking a flight to HI from there might save some money?

            You can also try booking flights leaving on an off day when routes aren't as busy. I think if you leave on weekends it can cost more than during the week.

              Tickets are horrible... about $930 each in April.
              I have noticed that it goes down on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Check out Kayak as they check all sites. Good Luck to all

                I found a website that tracks flight prices called Yapta!
                So far, quite a few have dropped in price while one went up drastically!

                  Someties it is cheaper to take a day and say fly to vegas....spend the night and then book a direct flight from vegas to HI.

                  Remember-IF you book any airline ticket with an airline....on their site ( not on priceline) and the fare goes down-CALL immediately-they give you a full CREDIT of how much it went down!

                  I watched our wedding airfare for days-it stayed at 749 for 2 people for days so I booked it. No chit-the next day it went down to 639 for 2 people-I was so annoyed. I called, got the credit and then used the credit to book the "bigger" seats! At least its something. Airline credits are good for one year. GL!

                    October is "higher season" in Maui than September is.....it's possible that the tickets may not go on sale for October, like they did in September. Later in October (closer to Halloween) is even busier, as they do a huge Halloween thing in Lahaina each year and thousands and thousands fly in for that.

                      Ticket prices have dropped to Maui from Vancouver or Seattle now.. we have a few more people booking now cause it's a bit more affordable!
