What’s a good price for a flight to Hawaii? How about $6? On Friday April 12 and again on Monday April 15, Arby’s is offering $6 flights from Los Angeles to Honolulu…yes, you read that right, Arby’s. The fast food chain is celebrating their new Hawaiian bread sandwiches with these flights but there’s one catch: it’s a one day trip. Not a “one night trip”, but a trip that stars in L.A. in the morning, and returns to the mainland in the evening. In between you’ll be bussed to the beach with more Arby’s Hawaiian bread sandwiches than you can possibly eat (I would hope). The flight will be April 27th and the promotion is open to legal residents of the U.S. only. The trips don’t even have to cost $6, since there’s also the promotion code “ALOHA” which substitutes for payment. Flight to Hawaii, free meals, what’s not to like?
OK, so this is a bit tongue in cheek, but it’s a real promotion. And it’s actually a pretty great deal. It includes a round trip flight from an airport near your hometown, a night in a hotel in L.A. before the flight, first class/business class travel to and from Honolulu, $150 per diem, and $500 for taxes and probably the flight home. The offers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis on both days. So it’s really more like a contest than a real sale. But I see no reason why you’d need to take the return flight back to California that night. So you could treat it like a 1-way flight to Honolulu, complete with tons of sandwiches, for $6 or free, and then fly home on your own dime. The sale starts at noon Eastern Time both days, so mark your calendar.
