Details on entering Hawaii are still being ironed out, but these prices make it easy to book ahead, and make changes later. Many airlines enacted customer-friendly travel policies this year, such as American Airlines waiving change fees for basic economy tickets. However, you?ll want to keep track of the airline cancellation policies and any coronavirus-related updates.
These prices are low for Hawaii, according to Google history:

Most of the lowest fares are priced in basic economy, which means different things to different airlines, but often means you may not have free use of the overhead bins for a carry-on bag. You probably also won?t be able to select your seat, get an upgrade or earn PQM/PQS/PQDs. Also, keep in mind that flights booked in basic economy may incur change fees despite many airlines eliminating most change fees on domestic and Caribbean/Mexico flights this summer. However, it?s possible to defeat some of basic economy?s negative aspects by having elite status or a cobranded credit card.
