The only thing I won't love is the 12 hr flight. Just saw Jet Blue flies to Hawaii. I'll start looking in Sept or Oct. I am thinking maybe fly to San Diego, spend the night and then fly out the next day.Ya. That flights a killer. It was 9 hrs for us from Chicago. We booked a night flight back thinking we'd sleep, that didn't happen!
I don't know how hawaii airline prices are or if they fly out from an airport near you. But we used them when we went from Oahu to Hawaii and they were great! Wish we could have used them for the flight out. We used Air Tran and they ONLY provided us pretzels n one drink the whole flight!
