    Ooh, good thing I haven’t moved my Hawaiian miles over to Hilton!

    Unfortunately on the miles redemption side I think the pricing will be similar to a HNL-SYD at 130K in J (or HA’s version of “F”) at the saver level. But it might be the only option available for a direct flight to HNL as the AKL-HNL on NZ can have spotty availability, especially for 2 award seats.

    Is there a good Hilton property to redeem at in Auckland that would be a better use of the HA miles?

      I agree that the redemption side is likely to suck pretty badly. But it is nice that the option is there.

    “our new service will offer Hawaii residents easy access to the natural wonders and Maori culture of New Zealand.”

    Surprising that they aren’t marketing this as an connecting option for mainland customers.

    Only problem is having to deal with US Immigration in HNL. One of the nastiest experiences I have ever had.

      Meh….I’ve had good and bad immigration experiences at several gateways. And I’m willing to put up with that hour or two for other quality travel experiences.
