The State of Hawaii received some very crushing news this weekend when it was reported that Aloha Airlines, who has flown Hawaii residents from island to island with a friendly smile and a little jug of guava juice for 61 years, would be flying its last flight tonight. I have always flown on Aloha Airlines if I could help it. I don’t know why, but I’ve always just preferred them over Hawaiian for some reason. I still remember the old Aloha planes with the orange and yellow plumeria flower. 1,900 employees are out of a job. Sad, sad times.
I blame go! Airlines of course. They came in a couple years ago and started a price war that was obviously going to cripple the two local airlines. Lawsuits, CEOs that publicly admit to keeping porn at work and whatnot. As far as I’m concerned, they can just go! away. I have never flown go! in the past and you can be darned sure that I never will because I’m officially boycotting go! Airlines. Hawaiian will get all of my interisland business. That’s just one born and raised Hawaii resident doing her small part to stick it to the big bad wolf. EAT THAT!
Anyway, no bento today as I’m attending a going away luncheon today at Manoa Marketplace. I’ll be sure to take pictures of my food and update this post later!!
