Hawaii is a notoriously tricky destination to get to using Qantas Points. Qantas used to rarely release premium award seats on its sole route between Sydney and Honolulu, but after upgrading to a bigger 747 on this route earlier this year, it finally began releasing award seats.

Qantas has extended its plans to operate a 747 to Honolulu until 29 August 2019, with lots of premium award seats available. That means Qantas Frequent Flyer members can use their points to travel to Honolulu during the popular mid-year travel season.

You’ll need 72,000 Qantas Points in business class or 54,000 in premium economy for a one-way ticket ex-Sydney (potentially more if you’re connecting from another city), plus Qantas’ usual hefty taxes and fees.

This is a rare opportunity, so I expect the seats will be snapped up quickly. If you’re interested, don’t delay booking!
