For years -- millennia even -- Americans have debated whether the West Coast is, in fact, the best coast. Well, when it comes to getting to Hawaii, there's no debate -- especially now, with Virgin America's newest service to the Aloha State.
The highly rated airline just announced flight service from San Francisco to Honolulu and Maui beginning later this year, and to celebrate, the Virgin's offering one-way tickets for as little as $199. That's about $100-200 cheaper than current prices for roundtrip service. Just take a look at a sample search on Kayak.com:
The “Now Serving Paradise” sale will only last until Wednesday, April 8 at 11:59pm CT (or Thursday, April 9 at 12:59am), and is valid for travel from San Francisco to Honolulu between Nov. 2 and Feb. 28, 2016, and to Maui between Dec. 3 and Feb. 28, 2016.
And while it’s not life-changing cheap, Virgin America's received a 4-star airline rating for service, and you won’t find round-trip flights for much less than $500 on competing airlines. That's plenty of money to buy a couple more Hawaiian shirts.
The cheap fares are only valid for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, so don’t plan on flying over the weekend, or on any of these blackout dates: Nov. 20-30, and Dec. 18-31 in 2015; and on Jan. 1-4, 15, 18, and Feb. 12, and 15 in 2016. Yep, you can forget Thanksgiving in Hawaii.
Seats will likely fill up quick, so you'll probably want to jump on this offer faster than you can say "Aloha." Book right here.
