I love introductory airfares that airlines offer when they start new service because they nearly always involve crazy low prices. Case in point: $149 each way from San Diego to Honolulu this winter after Alaska Airlines starts daily nonstop service in November. Need I say more? The deal : Alaska Airlines' Introducing San Diego to Honolulu fares start at $149 each way plus tax and fees. Yes, this airfare is super-low but my research shows that this price isn't available on all dates.
