Finally, the last installment of my trip report from over a century ago in April 2019, my flight home. And, as regular readers will know, I fly Alaska. This time, that flight was Alaska Air 851 SEA-HNL.
For our flight back to Oahu, we flew Southwest Flight 1470. And while both flights were mostly the same, the ground experience was, well, drastically different. Not in a good way either, might I add.
Being the aviation nut that I am, it’s always fun trying new airlines. And, recently, I got to try a new-to-me airline for a quick mini-vacation. So, let’s talk about Southwest Airlines 1503 Honolulu – Kona service.
As is always the case for my travels to Vegas, I flew Hawaiian Airlines. This time, though, I upgraded myself. So let’s take a look at Hawaiian Extra Comfort red-eye service from Honolulu to Las Vegas.
To get home from San Francisco, we needed to take two flights. The first flight, Alaska Airlines 1837 was our final Virgin America flight. Well, sort of. Technically it’s already an Alaska flight, but the service was still Virgin.
My flight to Maui was uneventful. But, things went off the rails from there. So here the story of my arduous journey home with Hawaiian Air.
