    Round trip Thailand to Hawaii

    Can anyone help on where to go for tickets to fly round trip from Thailand to Honolulu, Hawaii? Trying to leave around November 3rd and return around December 3rd. I've been having some trouble with my bank there and have to go in person to get it all sorted. I'm also going back to try and get my Veterans pension increased and get some decent meds to bring back with me.


    I've been checking on the net but not much luck.


    Thanks for any help,

    Eli

    We used United Air when we visited the islands for about a month some years ago. Leave Tuesday 10/31 (return Monday Dec, 4th) starting price $586.00 - https://www.united.com/ual/en/us/

    Jumping from island to island we used Hawaiian Air (spooky)

    A co-worker is headed to Hawaii for Christmas, think she used a Chinese airline and paid like 700USD. Enjoy the trip, it looks like a fantastic destination.

    Best I found so far is Philippine airlines at $745 dollars. United Airlines is a pain to use.

    Apparently if you set your vpn to a poor country like India the flights get even cheaper

    OMG what a pain this is. I really don't care what airline it is and a little flexible on what day I leave as long as it's after Nov. 3rd and not really worried about when I come back as long as I have at least 3 weeks there and can even stay for another week or so.

    I can stay longer if I have to but I think it will take me at least 3 weeks to get the bank stuff done and then try to get things done at the Veterans Administration.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions to help me here?

    Thanks for all the help so far.

    Sorry for being thick about this but I haven't booked a flight in over 15 years.

    As in overnight layover.
    Might as well go through Seoul in these cases.

    Over night layovers don't bother me, I just need to get there as cheap as I can, I can sleep at the airport. I can't leave Thailand until after the 3rd because I have to draw money from my Hawaii account to leave with my wife and daughter. I'm not really worried once I get there. I do have at least one REAL friend there but I also know others, I did live in Hawaii for over 25 years. I do want to come back here to be with my wife and daughter though. It's not a ONE WAY trip. 555

    Can anyone help me to get this booked please?


    I'm not a rich man and just draw a pension from the US Army but I'm way short of being 100%. Part of the reason I'm going back. If I was a 1 percenter, I wouldn't have to ask.


    ANY help would be so appreciated.

    Best Price so far is on China Eastern Airlines at 24,900 baht. Still looking because they do have long stops in between flights. I got tired of searching and ended up going through a Thai friend of my wife. The lady is working at Ticket/Online.

    Just had a good look for you Eli, you wont beat that quote from that Chinese airline.
    I dunno where Landreth got his 500 usd price from, that was probably his duty free bill.

    Air Asia fly to Honolulu now and they cant even get near that price, even spending about 3 days at the airport.

    What about beachbumming it over Xmas and New Year and coming back January 12th


    Its only 21000 baht with Air Asia then

    Thanks for that Dill and wish I could stay that long. I've booked with China Eastern for 24,900. The only real problem is when I come back to BKK at 0055 AM.

    Thanks for all the help.
