Cheapest way to fly from Sydney to LA via Honolulu????

We are looking at going to LA in Sept/Oct and are wondering if we can have a stop over in Hawaii/ Honolulu on the way over without blowing the budget. We are a family of 5.

Any airline suggestions/best time to buy???

Probably post this question in the air travel forum for the best answers. But also try www.kayak.com to see airfares from a wide variety of airlines.

Jetstar and Qantas fly between Sydney and Honolulu. Multiple carriers (American, Continental, Delta, Hawaiian, United) fly between Honolulu and LA. Jetstar of course will be cheaper than Qantas, but you'll have to deal with the Jetstar experience. Good luck with that!

Hawaiian Air doe SYD-HNL and from HNL to quite a few cities in California. Their departure time out of SYD is different than most airlines which may be good or bad. Also, Continental flies from Cairns-HNL.

Current lowest fare is about $450 per person from SYD to Honolulu one way, then $300 per person one way to Los Angeles, then $600 per person from LAX back to SYD. So $1350 per person. Can go much higher depending on the dates that you choose.

I would expect, if you watch for sales and specials starting in June/July.....you can get it down to $1150-$1200 per person.

Remeber that if you are on the web looking at prices on a .com website (as opposed to a .com.au site) that the prices will be in USD not AUD

And US websites use a mm/dd/yy format for dates. I had to be careful in the opposite way while booking travel on Aussie websites. Double and triple check the dates you enter, I also used the popup calendar to really make sure.
