Jared at Online Travel Review writes that the opportunity to redeem Iceland Air miles for cheap flights on Alaska Air to Hawaii will end today at 8:00 pm EST.

There will be a new redemption rate announced later on, but it almost certainly won’t be as generous as the current redemptions rates.

Jared lists a few other redemption options as well, but remember that you can redeem your Iceland Air miles for  any flights on Alaska Airlines – not necessarily those to Hawaii only.  If you have Iceland Air miles which you can’t use to Hawaii, it could make sense to book a First Class flight to other Alaska Air destinations.

This lasted a lot longer than I expected, and I’m glad lots of folks were able to take advantage of it to fly for less in First Class to Hawaii.

Thanks again, Jared!

  1. Congrats on helping to kill this one.

  2. @ Jim:

    Be nice, it was not really a great deal for everyone. I would rather use AA miles on Hawaiian, Alaska, or AA to get to Hawaii and only pay $5 in fees and have the flexibility to redeposit at no fee as an EXP.

  3. totally with Joshua, I missed it when i was in AK vacation and the in-flex and icelandair’s system “glitch” makes it super hard for me to proceed. I’d rather use AA for Hawaiian.

  4. Such a bummer. I wasn’t even able to get an account these 2 weeks. I’ll just have to wait for the next deal…

  5. I agree with Joshua Pickles.

    I rather fly AA and get the status miles. When I used to be AA EXP (I soft landed down to PLT due to Stage 4 cancer), I would wait for a nice sale fare to Hawaii (for example, LAX-HNL for $263ai a few years ago) and upgrade using comp upgrades for me & 500 milers in my account for my wife. At that time, the service was in a 767 which was quite nice.

    The information was all over the place and lasted for some time. If I wanted in on the deal, I would have bought some miles for my wife & I to do the deal. Wasn’t that interested in the deal but was a nice deal for the right people.
