Waking up at 5am is the easiest thing to do knowing that paradise is just a few hours away. After some last minute packing, I met with Rosa at 6, and we walked to BART while saying goodbye to the cold for a few days.
We were flying OAK, which included taking AirBART for the first time. The quick, 8-minute ride got us there just in time for our flight because little did we know that Hawaiian Airlines boards an hour before the departure time.
Hawaiian Airlines is full of surprises:
- Lots of Snacks and Beverages — Two service runs, and our snack was a bag of Maui sweet onion chips.
- Complimentary Meal — Our breakfast consisted of cheese and crackers, fruit, and chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
- Free Alcohol — Every flight has a featured complimentary drink. Ours was a rum and guava juice blend. Really sweet. Maybe too sweet …
The only drawback is the lack of in-flight entertainment and WiFi (though you can rent a pre-loaded tablet for $15), so bring a book or download some movies before the flight.
