We're planning on taking our first trip to Hawaii next summer, and I'm just now starting to research airfare. All flights from PDX to Hawaii seem to be around $700. Is this typical airfare from Portland to Hawaii? I'm used to flying to Southern California where I can always find airfare as low as $200, so $700 seems insane to me. That's over $2,000 just on airfare (there are 3 of us).
