Air fares are way too high this fall

We need a fare war, but for the left coast Hawaiian has little competition anymore. Most are in the $600 range. I am watching.

I have to agree. I have been watching fares daily since April and they have remained high. If anything, they are a bit higher now that in the late spring. There are less expensive fares out of Portland and Seattle, but the fares for us Southern Californians remains pricey.

I was also watching very carefully, since January. My flight is mid-September and I got my tickets LAX - Honolulu for $218 round trip thru Delta. I purchased it at the end of June.

Keep watching! Go to Hotwire.com, type in your trip then click on "watch this trip" and you will get alerts.

The airfare out of NJ is $1000 per person roundtrip. I have never seen it this high.

Just booked Seattle-Honolulu on Hawaiian for late October for $296 round trip. Considering that it costs me $500 to go to Pittsburgh, I feel like this is a screaming deal.

I agree, the fares are still high for this time of year. The rental car prices are also very high.

We always use Hawaiian. Have had our tickets for about two months for Hawaii in January. Just checked today, and it is now over $100/ticket/person cheaper.

Tourism is down in Hawaii, so look for fares to go down, but will depend on when you are interested in visiting.

Capacity adjustments by the airlines?
