I'm planning our first trip to Hawaii for a conference this July, flying Portland, Oregon to Honolulu. I've been watching airfares for several months, trying to get a read on what's a good price for July, etc. A month ago I could book a nonstop flight on Alaska Airlines for $550. Today I can't book any flight on Alaska that doesn't leave me sitting all night long in Seattle.
Last night I almost booked nonstop flights on Northwest at $670 per person, but the price is just killing me so I decided to wait until morning and see what happened. This morning that same flight is over $100 more than it was last night.
I think I'm learning all the things you should not do when planning a trip to Hawaii. :(
Now I'm not sure if I should book at $800 or wait. Do these prices seem insane or is it just me?
