Hawaii Air Travel Update
In late April I reported on Hawaii air travel 3 weeks after the shutdown of Aloha and ATA airlines. At that time the Kauai airport parking lot seemed like a ghost town compared to it's prior overflow status. Well a month later I made another interisland trip and all seems back to normal (except for ticket prices). The parking lot was again overflowing with cars parked on curbs and sidewalks and others cruising the lot looking for a vacant spot. Flights were totally full with not an empty seat to be found. Of course that meant higher ticket prices as well. Now admittedly a sampling of parking lot usage is not very scientific but it does lead one to think that perhaps interisland travel is back to normal. Have the boom times have returned?
