Is Southwest Hawaii flights worth it from LAX?

New Arrival

Theres no LAX -> Hawaii unfortunately, they all need to go to SFO, making flight times 9 hours instead of 5.5-6.


Also, the one i booked was 22k SW points, which is ~330$ roundtrip? that seems great.

However, I just checked google flights and Alaska has the same days but 360$, nonstop (5.5hrs).


Seems like the SW deal has diminished in overall value if competitors are close behind?


Also not added was a check in bag, not sure how much of an effect that is. I think 1 checkin per person is free on SW? but alaska might charge. havent flown in a while

thoughts? are competitors competing with SW prices now?

Definitely good feedback to share directly! The easiest way to do so would be to ping the airline via social media DM and let them know!

No LAX, but daily non-stop LGB (Long Beach) to HNL starts March 11.  Flying out of LGB sounds 1000% better than having to go to LAX.  I also suggest you use the low fare calendar to find days with cheaper fares than what you saw, they are out there.
