Pualani Elite

  1. Qualification for Pualani Elite status is based on qualifying flights earned within a calendar year. Qualifying flights must be earned on a revenue fare that earns HawaiianMiles when traveling on a Hawaiian Airlines operated flight. Mileage award travel, promotional tickets, or industry discounted tickets are not eligible for mileage credit and therefore will not qualify towards Elite status.
  2. Pualani Elite privileges are honored only when members are traveling on Hawaiian Airlines scheduled flights and not on any other carrier.
  3. Details on the benefits available to Pualani Elite members can be found online via our Help Center https://hawaiianair.custhelp.com/
