From the booking I've done, on the Hawaiian site, I have noticed that the earlier in the day or the later into the evening you can fly, the cheaper you might get your tickets.

I can't answer that question, as I've always just booked a roundtrip from HNL to one island at a time. But why not check for that option! It's worth a look.

I agree that if you're flexible in your dates & times, you can take advantage the best rates. The only airlines that routinely service the islands are Hawaiian and Go! I have only flown Hawaiian.

There's no non-stop KOA-LIH.

But since intra-HI flights are basically priced as single trips anyways, you should book the flights as three groups:

HNL-KOA
KOA-(HNL)-LIH
LIH-HNL

This way, if your KOA-HNL flight is late, you'll still be protected on the connecting flight to LIH. Otherwise, if you book the flights as two roundtrips, you may be on your own if your KOA-HNL is late and you miss the connecting.
