Hawaiian Sudden Devaluation
Hawaiian Airlines changed its award rates without warning a short while ago. The changes include the following main points:
- The award rates are priced on a spectrum, from a minimum rate to a maximum rate, and there are fewer award categories (the milez.biz calculator results show the lowest and highest rates).
- There is a significant spike in redemption rates, especially if you're traveling from the East Coast or your award ticket is in the higher band of the rate spectrum.
- North America is now divided into two zones an Eastern zone (New York and Boston) and a Western zone (all the Hawaiian Airlines West Coast destinations).

Flying Blue Calculator Up to Date
We have re-worked our Flying Blue miles calculator so that our rates reflect the same miles as the estimator on the Flying Blue website. The rates recently changed on Flying Blue and they is no longer follow a clear zone logic or distance logic. Nonetheless the results from our calculator correspond to the "starting from" rates published on the FB website.
