New Hawaiian sunscreen law joins latest trend. Which products are safest?
New reasons you should consider coverage for your Hawaii vacation or another trip.
Hawaiian Airlines recently started charging $25 for exit row seating. And, while limited free meals are still available, they are now offering $10 paid meals as well as snacks and bottled water. In case you thought that was the end of Hawaiian’s ancillary fees, think again. “Ancillary revenue…will become a bigger chunk of our total revenue.” Mark Dunkerley, CEO […]
American and Delta are now taking part in the Los Angeles to all islands Fall airfare war. As previously reported, Hawaiian at $161 each way is still available, albeit with stops en route to the Big Island and Kauai. Hilo is available (with stops) for about $5 more. These are great options for those wishing to fly non-stop or loyal […]

There’s no place equal to farmers markets when it comes to trying the best and most unusual of Hawaii’s tropical produce and flowers. And at the top of my list in Hawaii is the Hilo Farmers Market. U.S.D.A. has proclaimed August 1-7, 2010 as National Farmers Market Week. To celebrate, I headed to Hilo yesterday and their market on […]
I decided to get away for a few days but to stay on island. Kauai’s North Shore seemed like a good possibility since I love to swim at Hanalei this time of year. Rather than book a hotel I decided to use Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) for the first time in years to locate a property. Here’s a […]

Price: $508 round trip (all-inclusive). Availability: Best through early June, but there are some available dates throughout the summer and beyond. A few Thanksgiving and Christmas range dates […]

Before you comment that $700 is not a deal and you’re going elsewhere, read on. Hawaii summer airfares have been $700 to $1,000 or more for at least the past 15 to 20 years.

Thirteen year old Allegiant is a diminutive airline compared with mainline carriers. Their might, however, is far greater than their size would indicate. Allegiant is one of the most profitable airlines, period. Last year Allegiant reported net income of $76.3 million on revenue of $558 million. Up to thirty percent of Allegiant sales are derived from non-airfare, composed mostly of […]
Over a year ago we broke the news that Allegiant Airlines would be flying to Hawaii in the near future. Today, Allegiant CEO Maurice Gallagher confirmed those intentions.
