I was excited to know Alaska was breaking into the OAK/LIH market (good for me because I was sick of going to SFO and flying United) but I didn't like the flight time they departed. It was something like 5PM and wouldn't get me into LIH until after 10PM. Add on a drive to Princeville and that is a late night for this traveler.
Well, I just booked my May trip ($317 R/T...woo hoo) and they have changed the flight schedule. I now depart at 7:50am. It gets into LIH at 10:40 AM. That is such good news for travelers besides me. The return leaves at 2:30 which is also good news. At least I have the morning to meet pzp for pancakes!!!! lol
The only bad thing is I can't be there on Mother's Day to celebrate with friends. Maybe I will organize a TA get together for a belated celebration.
These $149 fares from the bay area are over Dec 22nd for travel through May so hurry and get excited like me. I wish this service started sooner. $300 is Kauai is almost free!!!!! Just like the good ol days of 2006.Edited: 22 December 2010, 02:02
