[11/16/2015 @ 7:46 PM] HOUSTON Deal looks like it’s been pulled or has sold out. It’s no longer bookable on any OTA. DALLAS still seems available via a United match. Updating post to reflect that United is now the carrier. American Airlines has pulled their fares.
[11/17/2015 @ 10:31 AM] Fare gone. Removing from deal list. Congrats to those who were able to pick it up.
The prices and details in this post were accurate when this post was last updated (see time-stamps above). Prices and availability of this deal can and will change, given enough time.
United has round-trip flights from Dallas (DFW) to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii (KOA) for $490 with a connection. Flights from December to May. See the Flight Details section of this post for example booking dates.
There are currently a few flights near New Years Eve. Those are probably going to be gone really quickly.
Orbitz and CheapTickets have a search tool that looks for flights 3-days before and after the dates you’ve selected, you should use it if you have a general idea of when you want to travel, but want to see other prices for other dates close to the ones you’ve selected.
To save the most money, be sure to apply the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post. Booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package will probably save you more money than if you were to book separately. Vacation Packages on Travelocity and Priceline are usually better than what is offered directly by the airline, so be sure to compare them all to get the best price.
Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Travelocity allow free cancellation without penalty before 10 PM central time the day after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 10 PM the next day, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
United and Delta also allow free cancellations within 24-hours while American only allows you to “Hold” a ticket (without paying) for 24-hours. Keep in mind that once you pay for a ticket on AA.com you can’t cancel it without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
The Department of Transportation doesn’t enforce 24-hour free cancellation on tickets less than 7-days away from departure, so some airlines and OTAs will allow it while some will not. On Orbitz, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancel” next to the price of the ticket.
