Airfares to Hawaii Have Plummeted

Want to fly to Hawaii on the cheap? Now's your chance. In the wake of Southwest Airlines launching service to the islands--flights to Oakland were starting at $49 one-way--other airlines decided to drop their fares. Forbes reports that a round-trip flight on American Airlines from the Bay Area was reduced to $275, while Alaska Airlines followed suit by offering $200 round-trip fares. Even those who don't live in California were in luck: Flights going to Hawaii from Phoenix had plummeted to $350.
