I’m writing this review from 35, 000 feet! I have travelled on several airlines, but Hawaiian continues to be my favorite. I am traveling ‘coach’ and actually earned this trip with my Hawaiian Air Miles Plan. (Another review waiting to be written) Though I am travelling ‘coach’ I am quite comfortable. I have plenty of leg room and my seat is comfortable also.
I just finished my lunch of Beef Tostada, which was as good as one can expect for in-flight food. Our choices were between the Beef Tostada, a turkey sandwich, or pasta with Marinara sauce.
I have been in the air for 2.5 hours and we have already had service three times. I had my first Mai Tai after about the first hour. Then we were served lunch, and then another beverage service. I’ll wait for my second Mai Tai for at least another hour. I have to tell you that the Trader Vic Mai Tai beverages they serve are so-o-o delicious. I mix mine with the complimentary pineapple juice and share the Mai Tai with my husband so for $3.00 each; we have a nice little relaxant to ease our long flight.
It is taking six hours to get from Seattle to Honolulu today. It varies between five and six hours, depending on the wind direction.
We left right on time today and everything has gone without a hitch. I am travelling with my two teens and my husband and we are all enjoying a comfortable flight and looking forward to our stay in Hawaii.
