Currently , for a limited time, Alaska Airlines (in a continuation of their usual, quirky vibe) is partnering with surf forecasting site named Surfline to offer some interesting deals to and from Hawaii. The airline will discount up to 30% off flights to and from Hawaii based on the height of forecasted waves around the islands. That's some math right there! If you don’t find yourself near a beach often, I’ll make it simpler: The bigger the wave, the bigger the discount!
(Yes - it's getting cold on the East Coast...)
The sale is valid from Nov. 4 to 8 (quite a short period of time, admittedly), for travel through Nov. 20. Alaska will discount fares based on the following max swell heights tracked by Surfline:
The discount will change daily at approximately noon and 5 p.m. PST as Alaska gets the latest forecast information from Surfline. Make sure that the discount code SURFLINE15 appears in the discount code field!
For example, it's possible to travel from Oakland to Honolulu roundtrip for 277$. Not bad! However, I've been experimenting for quite a bit and found no great deals from the East Coast unfortunately :(
Not the cheapest of all deals, but hey - if you are looking for a November or December getaway from the weather, here's the chance!
