I bought two discounted Standard Airlines tickets to Honolulu...



X for Y is used to express that you use X to accomplish, complete, allow, or do Y. E.g. I bought tickets for the concert

On sounds like you are trying to say you bought the tickets while on a plane.


Nither of them is correct. You can write, i have bought 2 discounted ticket of standerd airlined to Honolulu. For is used for purpose, as i bought a car for my mother

  • This is wrong: "tickets of ..." is grammatically incorrect. I would go with "on," and suggest changing the word order (tickets to Honolulu on Standard Airlines).
