Be sure to look into what extras the airline offers when booking. With a variety of airlines offering low prices, it's worth seeing which ones charge extra for food, seat selection, or a checked bag. 

Additionally, you'll want to buy quickly. Unlike some flight sales that have a set timeline, these are just good prices that are likely to disappear quickly. But, if you take advantage while the getting is good, you might wind up with a cheap flight to Hawaii during the peak season to start the year.
