HELLO FROM YOUR SEEMINGLY ALWAYS HAWAII (specifically Kona) SCREENSHOTS POSTER Today Southwest started service from San Jose to Kona which they will fly 3 times a week, obviously because they were flying to Kona, I had to fly the route. So yesterday I flew San Jose to Kona and back to San Jose to have this post for right now as Southwest 4032 is currently flying over the Pacific and it’s scheduled to arrive almost an HOUR ahead of schedule 😳. Thanks to @BigBert10 for giving me the idea for this route. The Boeing 737-800 will be used as Southwest uses only 737-800s on flights to Hawaii, so I used it too. I took off around 7:20 PST as the sun was rising, got to Kona around 10:30 AM and then left Kona around 11 AM HST, so I landed back in San Jose around 5:20 PM as the sun was setting. It took 4 hours and 45 minutes to get to Kona and 4 hours 23 minutes too fly back to SJC for a final flight time of 9 hours and 8 minutes.
