We've mentioned a few of the better sales in the blog this week, which I'll compile in a list along with some other offers on a variety of airlines. This list is not extensive and focuses on the better Black Friday offers that are out there today.

Along with the nonstop routes, Fiji also is discounting travel to Australia and New Zealand with free stopovers in Fiji up to 72 hours. Tickets must be booked by November 27, 2018.
Hawaiian Airlines is offering discounted fares to Hawaii starting from $357 roundtrip. Fares to Hawaii have been lower in the past few months, but some of these routes aren't operated by other airlines and you may prefer the service on Hawaiian, which still includes a hot meal on all flights between the mainland and Hawaii. Travel Mondays through Thursdays, from January through mid-March, to Kona (KOA), Honolulu (HNL), Kauai (LIH), and Maui (OGG).
Iberia is having a Color Friday sale with nonstop flights to Madrid (MAD) starting at $343 roundtrip.
