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.
