Once Again, Returned to Sacramento from Kona

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

What I reiterate in my personal blog about today about the journey to Sacramento from Kona will not apply much, I predict, in the future. Primarily because Alaska Airlines now has flights directly to Sacramento from Kona. Hawaiian Airlines does not. Hawaiian flies to Maui and to Oahu but not directly to Sacramento.

Not only that, but after settling in yesterday after the flight attendants offered a Mai Tai or whatever other choices there are, I dunno, we didn't push away from the gate for 90 minutes. We could have had a saucer of mac nuts, something. People on the plane were wondering if we would have to change planes or stay in Honolulu. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Journey Home to Sacramento from Kona, Hawaii.

Hi Elizabeth... there is nothing much fun about travelling these days. Last month I arrived home 14 hours later than planned from Russia. And to get home after my Munich to Charlotte flight was cancelled I had to fly from Munich to San Francisco, endure a 3-hour layover in SF, and take a red eye to Charlotte.

Nina Hollander That is brutal. I would have made them let me spend the night at SFO in a hotel and flown out in the morning.

"WHO are you? They said in unison.  Do we know you?"  I had to smile at that line, Elizabeth.  By the way, should you decide to permanently move to Hawaii with your cats, what are the current rules about quarantining the felines?  I remember when I considered building on the Big Island in the 1980s, it was something like a 6 month quarantine for them.

Myrl Jeffcoat I don't think there is any quarantine now if you do it correctly. You need proof of certain shots, and a vet letter mostly.

Good morning Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents,

Sadly flying is not what it use to be and certainly not the customer experience we use to enjoy! Are you planning on permanently living in Hawaii?

The entire point of rerouting me that way they did once my flight was cancelled was to get me home by Sunday morning as I had a long-standing appointment at noon with a relocating client to write a new construction contract. But as you said, it was brutal. I walked through my door at 8am on Sunday and had just about enough time to shower, get dressed, and get to my appointment.

Elizabeth- I saw that Anole and my toes curled!!!!  Just last year we began seeing them in our neighborhood and I have to admit, they make me jump when I see them.

Elizabeth, I echo Nina's comments.   My vacation in August, I flew into Toronto at midnight due to the flights being canceled, and we were in the plane on the runway for 90 min.  UGH!

Joan Cox Reminds me of a flight I boarded once on the runway in Kingston. Hot, stuffy. Passengers had been waiting 2 hours for take-off. I said no thanks, got off and let the Jamaican Tourist Board hire a driver to take us to Ocho Rios.

I was thinking as we returned from Boston how tiring traveling has become. It is all about hurry up and wait.

Oh boy, I don't like car rides, or plane rides, much over 3 hours. I get so damn antsy. Now, with the tiny little seats and lousy food it's really difficult to take longer flights.  Bet your kitties are thrilled you're home - but I'm guessing there's a lonely anole on your lanai in Hawaii.
