Can I book a single award ticket for a 2 year old?
« on: May 02, 2012, 01:36:28 PM »
I have Hawaiian miles and want to book a flight from LIH-SAN.  On the day I would like to travel, there is 1 coach seat left at the saver rate (17.5k miles) and several coach seats at the standard level (30k miles). 

If possible, I would like to make two separate reservations (one at 17.5k miles and one at 30k miles = 47.5k miles) instead of a single reservation (30k miles x 2 = 60k miles).  The tricky part is that co-passenger is 2 years old.  Will they let me book a separate award ticket for her --- or will her flight need to be tied to an adult reservation. 

Thanks

They don't check IDs for kids...

But they do ask for the passenger's birthdate in the reservation.  So if I tried to book it, would it prevent me if the passenger is only 2 years old? 

I think I recall saying you have frequently used wrong birthdates for kids under 2 who want to pay for a seat.  Is this what you would advise if the system prevented me from booking it for a 2 year old?  Thanks!
