    I've been checking out AS award availability and the routing on supersaver awards suck. PDX has a direct flight to Maui, I think it is lame I can't find a booking for that with supersaver. Are the better routing options available far in advance or last second?

    When are you looking to fly???? Saver awards are space limited. Hawaii is a very popular destination. It is not unusual for saver seats to not be available - especially when it is to a popular destination. Also, you need to remember the limited number of direct flights between PDX and Maui.

    Your best bet is to find the best routing (probably through LAX) and book that. You might need to make two stops. One in LAX and one in HNL.

    I was thinking more general about how far in advance is best time to find a supersaver award.
