The Hawaiian Airlines World Elite Mastercard is featuring a new offer for 60,000 miles after $2K spend in the first 90 days that also has the annual fee waived for the first year. While Hawaiian miles are of dubious value relatively speaking, this is a decent offer for those who know the program and are confident they can make good use of the miles.

Honolulu to Papeete is only about 5.5 hours, but this was a comfortable way to fly it.

Quick Thoughts

Again, Hawaiian Miles are generally tough to use. I haven’t looked to see if they have greater availability these days because of reduced travel, but in the past it was nearly impossible to find saver business class award space (at one point I searched for an entire year and didn’t find a single saver seat up front from New York to Honolulu). They do fly some international routes like Hawaii to Tahiti where the miles could be of decent value if not the lowest-mileage deals. I flew that Hawaii-to-Tahiti route in 2019 and I thought the business class was perfectly nice and comfortable. Some may not like the general lack of privacy of the business class seats (see my picture above), but I found the airy layout less claustrophobic than some premium cabins.
