Hello. My family is looking to fly to hawaii next year using points (It might be February or June/July). We are trying to get flights on the same planes but are ok if there is a mix of economy/first/business seats on the planes. Preference being to have business or first class on flight back from hawaii. We are looking at flying NYC to HNL but could do NYC to OGG and LIH to NYC back since we plan to go to Maui first and then finish up in kauai. We have Ultimate rewards points 250,000 SPG 41,000 American airlines 135,000 I'd like to use all my american ariline miles. I'm trying to decide if I want to transfer my spg to american airlines miles this month (due to bonus for AA transfer) and fly AA both ways, or fly AA one way and united the other and safe my starwood points for another trip. Since we are looking at spending about 2 weeks in hawaii I would like to use my chase points for "points and cash" stays at Hyatt under the diamond challenge rather than starwood. Do you think I should do AA and AA, or do UA and AA based on my points distribution, or something that doesn't look like any of those things? I appreciate the help very much!
