Use Google flights and you should see dates available for April and May. I found availability from April 27th-May 6th. Keep in mind, Norwegian Air is a low-cost carrier and they will charge for a checked-in bag. Another idea is to use Oslo as your hub and travel to multiple Scandinavian countries in a single swoop.
There have likely been more Hawaii deals over the past few months than I can ever recall and it looks like there is a price war brewing between Alaska and United from many West Coast cities. Upon doing a quick search, I saw many dates available in April and May. Here is an example itinerary from San Francisco to Maui using Google Flights:
Here is another example from San Jose, California to Maui:
This deal won’t last long so if you’re on the West Coast looking for a cheap deal to Hawaii, this is a great opportunity.
This deal is available from Newark to Kauai (LIH) on one of the highest rated domestic carriers, Alaska Airlines. Multiple dates are available in April and May. Here’s an example from April 18th-26th:
This is one of the cheapest deals I’ve ever seen from the East Coast to Hawaii and the fact that it’s on arguably one of the top two domestic carriers in the U.S. makes it an added bonus. I didn’t see this deal on the Chase portal using UR points so it might not last very long.
It’s a good week to be a traveler based near Newark, NJ. American Airlines has plenty of dates from Newark to Maui for $399 from early April into late May. These flights have a connection in Dallas before continuing on to Maui. I did a quick sample search from May 4th-May 10th but you can just go to Google flights and play around with your desired dates.
I also did a quick check on Chase Ultimate Rewards and these flights can also be booked via the UR portal for a bargain redemption of just over 26k Ultimate Rewards points round trip if you have the Chase Sapphire Reserve or 32k points if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Flights to Hawaii from the NYC area are rarely this cheap so if you were planning a trip to Hawaii over the next month or so, this is a great deal whether you use cash or points. I made a post about my trip to Maui and you can read about that by clicking the following link: Travel Itinerary: 3 Days in Maui
Airfare from the New York City area to California rarely comes this cheap. While Sacramento itself is not generally considered a destination on most people’s list it can be a gateway to other places in Northern California. If you want to use it as a gateway to get to the Bay Area or Yosemite National Park, this deal is about as cheap as they come. And if Sacramento happens to be your final destination, even better for you. Click here to find your exact dates and availability. This deal is available for April and May.
Yesterday there was an error fare from multiple cities in the U.S to Auckland, New Zealand for an ultra discounted price that varied from $239-$340. Unfortunately, it seems like the third party ticketing agency is sending out e-mails today that Air New Zealand will not honor the tickets. Thanks to one our readers for sending this screenshot earlier today:
Airlines are not required by law to honor error fares but will do so to build up goodwill with the customers or attract new customers that may have never flown with them. Some airlines like Emirates and Etihad have a proven track record of honoring error airfares. I do appreciate Air New Zealand taking less than 24 hours to inform people about their decision as there have been cases where airlines have taken a week or longer to cancel tickets. In any case, it’s always a good idea to jump on these deals if you have the time because you just never know if they’ll honor them. If you have booked and received the same e-mail, please let me know by leaving a comment on Facebook.

This deal is active from a bunch of U.S. airports including smaller airports. If you do book a ticket, please hold off on making any hotel reservations until you know this airfare will be honored. This clearly looks like an error and some airlines will honor it, others won’t. Airfare to New Zealand easily goes above $1,200 round trip during the summer.

Here is an example from Chicago to Auckland.

If you missed out on the Frontier Airlines sale yesterday, you might be able to find the same route via JetBlue. They have one-way tickets starting at $33. The great thing about JetBlue flash sales is if you’ve accumulated JetBlue miles via their TrueBlue frequent flier program, the number of miles needed for a ticket goes down with the airfare. For example, a March 7th flight from Philadelphia to Fort Lauderdale is only $44. If you were to redeem miles, only 2,200 TrueBlue miles are required.
You can go to JetBlue’s website here and see if your desired destination falls within the sale. If you do any shopping on Amazon, remember to route yourself to Amazon via the JetBlue website. JetBlue is an exclusive airline partner of Amazon and you get 3 miles per dollar just by clicking on Amazon’s link through JetBlue. You do need to make yourself a JetBlue account (it’s free) and I’ve made a step-by-step diagram on how to set things up which you can read about here. If you do any type of shopping on Amazon, I strongly encourage you to read that post.
Frontier Airlines has a flash sale that has some really good deals if you’re able to book by tonight. Travel must be completed between January 29th and March 7th. For example, I’m seeing one-way flights between Long Island (ISLIP) and Orlando for $20 each way. Los Angeles to Denver is also $20 each way and same with Cleveland to Orlando. You can go to their website here and see if your destination is included in the flash sale. Just be mindful that Frontier is an ultra low-cost carrier that will charge for any bags that don’t fit under the seat. If you’re on the fence about a trip, you can book now and cancel within 24 hours for a full refund.
NYC to Kuala Lumpur for $338 round trip with multiple travels dates available in January and February. Los Angeles to Kuala Lumpur for $344 round trip with availability during the same time frame. I don’t know if this is a mistake fare or not so if you decide to book the flight, hold off on making any non-refundable hotel bookings until your flight is confirmed. Below is an example from a search from NYC using Google flights:
ANA is one of only nine 5 star airlines according to SKYTRAX so this would be a very comfortable flight during the Trans-Pacific portion of the itinerary.
