Deal alert: Flights to Hawaii from $277 round-trip

Remember when $591
round-trip used to be a good deal to Hawaii
? Nowadays it seems
that the “new normal” for flights to Hawaii is in the $300s
from the West Coast. But, today we are seeing flights to the
Hawaiian destinations of Honolulu (HNL), Maui (OGG), Kauaʻi (LIH)
and Kona (KOA) as cheap as $277 round-trip.

But this deal isn’t just limited to the West Coast. There’s
great deals from many parts of the mainland U.S. to the 50th state
for under $400 round-trip.
