My guess is that this is a tough ticket: Hawaii over Thanksgiving. I'm starting to look for flights for a possible trip for my wife, 7 year old, and myself. I could leave late on the Friday before Thanksgiving and return the Saturday after, or reasonable +/- 1 days. It's been years since I've flown from CLT to anywhere in Hawaii, but it seems like AA has fewer options than when I used to fly UA out of CLT. I want to spent time on both the Big Island and Maui; 2-3 nights in one, and 3-2 nights in the other. I'm not opposed to stopping over in DFW, PHX, SFO or LAX on the way over, or possibly both directions. I'd like to book award or paid travel in first, would love to get some fully flats. In the couple of hours I've been looking, I'm having a hard time figuring out what the best routing would be from CLT. I'd love to book on AA and possibly book paid coach or even paid first (via AA vacations). At the same time, I've got a ton of AMEX and UR points. If I need go go that route to get a good travel experience for the 10+ hours plus connection time I will. So, is there a question in there? I guess I'm trying to figure out AA routes and, the more I look, thinking I should use some of my flexible points and book CLT - west coast, and then west coast - Hawaii on Hawaiian or something like that. Any comments or suggestions for CLT - Hawaii travel?
