The flight was OK, but they served no food for the 5 hour flight! Got to love the new airlines. :< but people were generally happy, who wouldn't be when they are going to Hawaii? Since American Airlines charge for luggage too, so we only took carry-on's, and of course everybody else had the same idea. Luckily there was enough space for everyone's carry-on around us.
We arrived in Kahului airport in Maui after sunset, it was humid and warm, like the tropics should be. It's a small airport, so it only took a few minutes to ride the shuttle bus to the rental car office. We upgraded the rental car to a red Mustang convertible, sort of just felt like being in a convertible when you are in Hawaii! About 20 minutes after landing, we were in our Mustang driving to our hotel! It was an almost 1 hour drive to get to our hotel on the northwestern side of the island. By the time we checked in, it was kind of late to find a place for dinner, so we just ordered some deserts at the bar, hmm, wow, they have a really tasty chocolate cake, almost like a souffle, that was definitely good enough for now.
