Thanks Delta!!

Thanks to my obsessive checking of flights to Hawaii, just took advantage of a glitch on Delta's website and booked 4 tix to Kona from NYC for $103 each! And we're flying first class to and from the JFK-LAX leg! An amazing late Christmas present.

Now on to booking accomodations...... :-)

*gasp*

I sure hope Delta honors those tickets. Looks like there is a decimal place missing in the price!

Boston Herald just posted that Delta will honor the fares:

Apparently the glitch was for fares all over the country.

Thanks! I feel insanely lucky, almost too good to be true. My wife and I took our first trip to Hawaii in March and I have been looking to get back ever since. With this fare deal we can take the kids this time!

Whenever I read about those glitches I think how lucky people are who just happened to be surfing the website at the right time...Congrats!

If this is your first time to the Big Island make sure you read through the Top Questions on lodging before booking. A condo at the Mauna Lani or Waikoloa Beach for your family of four is always a good option. Happy planning!
