An Early Morning in the Big Apple to the Blue Sky of the Aloha State

So first of all, yes, I know Newark is in New Jersey and technically not New York City, but it’s considered one of NYCs airports. A few days ago I flew Newark to Honolulu in the United 767. I would’ve flown JFK-HNL, but we don’t have the Hawaiian A330 so I just flew out of Newark with United, which is a route they fly with their 767s. I took off before school at around 6:30 AM, went to school, came home, watched some golf and then played some basketball with my friends and when I came back it was time to descend. I flew West out of Newark, over Denver and just north of San Francisco before flying Southwest toward Oahu. My flight time was an insanely long 10 Hours and 41 Minutes.

Ugh, if you had replied earlier, I would’ve waited for you 😂
I just took off from LIH heading to SJC on Southwest 😂

But yeah, that’s a good route to try out…especially because Southwest just launched service today
They will launch SJC-KOA tomorrow!

I was actually flying Toronto to San Francisco so I wouldn’t have been able to any way. And yes I looked to make sure there were no flights from Toronto to San Jose before I flew to SFO 😉

And I might fly San Jose to Kona tomorrow if it’s the first flight!

It would be nice if you flew SJC-KOA because it’s the inaugural flight on Southwest tomorrow!

Btw, San Jose will have Toronto service in May! 😃
