We live near Honolulu but are originally from the Boston area. We were ecstatic when we learned that Hawaii had establish a direct Honolulu to Boston route. This cuts the travel time by two to three hours. We love flying Hawaiian and have used them as our priimary carrier for many trips through asia and the west coast of the USA, Same great service which included meals, complimentary wine, free movies. Hawaii just brings that great Aloha spirit.
