Have you had it with the cold winter weather?

The Fare Deal Alert reports you can escape to Hawaii from certain US cities for less than $400 round-trip in coach on United Airlines!

This is NOT a mistake fare.  It’s the result of a fare war between United Airlines and Delta!  So you can book directly on the United Airlines website.

You can use tools like Google Flights or ITA Matrix to help find some of these deals.
