I've traveled to Maui many times from the Midwest. In the past, I've always been able to catch a great fare if I was willing to wait it out. I am not seeing travel prices dropping for this market and wondered if anyone has any insight on this. (looking to travel in March)
What is the best way to get the lowest fare, with decent flight times. I don't mind waiting it out if I can have some confidence rates will fall within a certain window.

Hi Mahalo...there is a great new search engine we have been using called Rovia to find great prices on airfare, hotels, vacations, etc...it searches the internet for great deals and very often we found the best deals on the internet at this site: http://www.TravelTiger.Rovia.com
If you register as a Preferred Customer (Free) you get added perks like $200,000 airline insurance, concierge service, last minute deals, etc....
Hope this helps.

Pricing has dropped recently. I picked up a decent fare about 3 mos ago, and got an even better price today, knocking enough off my previous price to pay the $150 change fee and still have some left over. I was disappointed that I overpaid back in October but given that fares were fluctuating between $850 and $1,100 and was consistently between $950 and $1,000, I thought the $875 was as good as I would see. Today, it was down to $689 (Milwaukee to Kona).
P.S. that was with DL/NWA. I have used Kayak.com to follow and chart the cheapest rates available on all airlines on a daily basis.

You might also want to try out www.cheaptickets.com for fares to Maui along with Kayak like Von mentioned previously. The best way to go is to have a stop or two in order to save money or leave from a smaller airport if you can.
P.S. You might also get great deals by checking out the airlines directly. Sometimes they are cheaper than going to Cheap Tickets or Kayak or the other sites.
